* ExposedToTheElements: Hokuto running through a giant blizzard in her usual garb most certainly counts. It is an avatar, however, so it's easy to shrug off.

* ExposedToTheElements: Hokuto running through a giant blizzard in Lampshaded by Albireo when the party were at the snowy blizzards of Imprisoned Fallen Angel, and they were all minimally dressed (Hokuto was wearing her usual garb most certainly counts. It is an avatar, however, so it's easy to shrug off.stripperiffic garb, Lycoris was only dressed in her filmsy red robe, while Albireo himself had a sleveless shirt). Justified, since they were in a game, and were not really situated in sub-zero temperatures in real life.


Added DiffLines:

* FlawedPrototype: Lycoris was designed by Harald Hoewick to be the [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots "ultimate AI"]], Aura, but was deemed imperfect and therefore [[spoiler:must be deleted]].

* CuddleBug: Lycoris is depicted as constantly holding Albireo's hand once they meet, except when he's in battle in which case she hides behind him.
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]]: She's blind at first and needs Albireo to guide her. After she gets her sight back she's running ahead of the others.

* [[ShesAManInJapan She's a Woman in Japan]]: Waterai's assistant, Kamui's player, was mistranslated as being a male in the English release of ''AI Buster''; the lack of Japanese gender-specific pronouns and communication between the author and publisher likely attributed to this. This mistake was corrected in ''AI Buster 2''.

A two-volume light novel series of the DotHack franchise.

The first volume is one of the first entries chronologically, taking place before ''DotHackSign'' and after ''[[NoExportForYou .hack//Epitaph of Twilight]]''. It follows a solo player, Albireo, as he encounters a strange female NPC in an otherwise average dungeon in The World. The NPC seems quite abnormal - it's voiced, and acts as if it can respond to his speech. Compounding this oddity is his being forced into a party by a manic girl named Hokuto during an invasion event in a root town. With that, he has to find a way to finish the NPC's quest.
