* BlindIdiotTranslation: The manga and novels, as published by Tokyopop, as the translators didn't stay true to canon. (And the soundtrack CD published by Pioneer.) Things got better starting with volumes 2 and 3 of Another Birth.

** There are quite a few to another one of Creator/CyberConnect2's games, TailConcerto. Various "other players" are named after the charaters in TailConcerto (Waffle, Cyan, etc.). There are even ads on your desktop about the game.

* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Emma Weilant's Epitaph of Twilight. Harald Hoerwick used her poem as the setting for frägment, the beta version of the The World, both of which which are actually an attempt to [[spoiler:create a true [=AI=] by studying the millions of players]]. But part of his program ends up becoming intelligent on its own and rebels against its purpose, resulting in the rebel [=AI=] and a handful of players actually ''reenacting'' the story of the Epitaph in ways Harald never anticipated. And considering Emma's rather mysterious inspiration for the poem...

** On a more conventional sense, the gender of Hotaru's real-world player, one of the characters of .hack//Legend of The Twilight Bracelet, is ''very'' fiercely debated due to several conflicting informations across the medium. Specifically, while many has said that Hotaru is a female, she is revealed to be male in the non-canon Let's Meet Offline, and in a throwaway, hard-to-translate line in A.I. Buster 2, which ''is'' canon. It doesn't help that real-world Hotaru is shown at the end of Volume 3 (along with the other real-world versions of the cast), and looks VERY [[AmbiguousGender genderly-ambiguous.]]

The first series of [=PS2=] games (''.hack//Infection'', ''.hack//Mutation'', ''.hack//Outbreak'' and ''.hack//Quarantine''), the ''Anime/DotHackLiminality'' [[{{OVA}} OVAs]] and the ''.hack//Another Birth'' novels chronicle the following adventure, where another band of players - later known as the legendary "dot hackers" - challenge Morganna, the evil AI lurking within ''The World''. Using a [[GameBreaker game-breaking]] power given to him by Aura before her destruction, the newbie Kite and his partner [=BlackRose=] lead the fight against Morganna in the hopes of restoring Aura and the many coma victims that have resulted from Morganna's attacks. A set of Novels known as .hack//Another Birth retell this story from Blackrose's point of view, tells us about her offline and some of the things she does when not with Kite.

* {{Retcon}}: ".hack//Link", ".hack//Quantum", and "The Thanatos Report" make it so that everything that has happened in the franchise was not the result of big business abusing technologies that have advanced past the point of their understanding as the world reached the technological event horizon and true A.I. began to develop, but a deeply-entrenched conspiracy concerning an Ecological terrorist organizations' efforts to trap the entirety of humanity in a video game so as to keep the world from being destroyed due to human abuse. This contradicts several significant past plot points and expositionary Lore; the least of which being the nature of how Aura --who this plan all hinged upon to work-- was created to be a testament of the love her programmer held for a woman he never got to be with...that those entry's retcon as being one of the inner-circle.

The retcon may itself be subjected to a retcon by future projects, as ''.hack//G.U. Last Recode'' avoids addressing the new plotline entirely.



* RoadCone: If you went through ''.hack//G.U.'' with anyone other than Atoli as Haseo's love interest, you're gonna be disappointed when you watch the movie.

Added DiffLines:

** One of the final Parody Mode sketches in ''.hack//G.U. Last Recode'' is Shino and Haseo giving a very unkind summation of the poorly-received plot of ''.hack//LINK''.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: CC Corp, the InUniverse equivalent of Creator/CyberConnect2 and the runner of the various incarnations of The World, is portrayed as laughably incompetent at best and actively malicious at worst.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Mistral's "confession" in Vol. 3/Outbreak sounds exactly like ''another'' [[LoveConfession kind of confession]]. She acts like a teenager in-game but betrays that she's older than she acts in e-mails (by mentioning cooking, going to store and haggling, for example), which gives an interesting possibility: "Is she an older woman into {{shotacon}}?" Nah, [[spoiler: she's an expecting housewife that will soon give birth to Mirei who will inherit her Player Character later in Legend of Twilight Bracelet]].

The setting for the series is TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, diverging from the real-world timeline beginning in October of 2002. On December 24, 2005, a supervirus codenamed "Pluto's Kiss" destroyed all of the world's computer operating systems. MS Windows, Mac OS, Linux... all gone. All except for one, [[strike: [=OpenBSD=]]] ALTIMIT, which seems to be immune to all computer viruses. In response, hacking becomes a capital crime worldwide, and the internet returns to its roots as a communication network for government and military use for the next several years.
