Finally, as a general warning, this page covers tropes seen both in the anime and the light novels, as well as the various spin-offs. As such, fans of the anime (even those who have seen every episode) should be careful about reading through spoilers, as many reference plot points that have yet to come up in the anime. '''''Consider yourself as having been warned.'''''

* AssholeVictim:
** The player killers that try to attack Shiroe's group in episode 2, and later on, the Hamelin guild. Due to the latter's abuse of lower leveled players, such as with Tohya and Minori, and other implied acts of crimes, no one bats an eye when Shiroe disbands them by preventing them from accessing their guild hall or bank vault.
** Sensing an opportunity, Demikas hits Shiroe in episode 9 of season 2 after the raid group nearly wipes out, wanting some payback for his humiliating loss back in the first season. As he mocks Shiroe, a huge raid boss behind Demikas smashes him with his giant club.

"Elder Tale" is an established {{MMORPG}} set in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic version of Earth]] where magic and fantasy have grown over the ruins of the previous world. On the day that a new expansion pack was scheduled to become active, every single player logged into the server suddenly finds themselves ''within'' the world of Elder Tale. Most of the game functions are still active and "death" simply revives the player at their last home point. But in every other sense, the world is "real" and hundreds of thousands of players are now trapped in what used to be a game.

* OnlyKnownByNickname: Justified as players frequently use his/her/their OnlineAlias and only, sometimes not, your guildmates know their name. Being Japanese, they must think it's rude to call someone by name which they are not-formally-introduced.

* OnlineAlias: Most characters also use username instead of their real name even some of them have their friends who learnt his/her real name.

** Landers can't create new songs because of CreativeSterility. Thus, Izuz singing songs they've never heard of is unprecedented. [[spoiler: Then she goes and composes her own original song, which becomes her overskill ''the 43 song''.]] It's justified because she's an adventurer and has heard many more than 42 songs in her life.

** Some of the more questionable name translations, like "Scale Festival", which makes no sense. The light novel calls it the "Libra Festival" (even in English, too), which makes more sense considering the season and the zodiac.

* NoHarmRequirement: Following the discovery of how to create real food in the game world, the protagonists begin collecting wildlife for use as ingredients. However, only someone with the chef subclass can get the most out of any one kill, which necessitates having to capture the beasts alive and bringing them to the chefs, which is considerably more difficult than killing them outright.

** And that doesn't take into account the ones who created them, the Navigators, who are implied to be responsible for the Apocalypse in the first place, and that the result isn't even out of malice. It gets explained by [[spoiler:Roe 2]] that had they known that the residents of the world, or at least the adventurers, were intelligent past the minimum threshold, then they would have been left alone, as the resource being harvested, [[spoiler:Psyche/MP (called empathions by the Navigators)]] belongs to those who live on the world.
