The rulebook for a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''-style tabletop RPG based on the series was released in March 2014, accompanied by [[http://mamare.net/wp-content/uploads/04.jpg a story of a session played using the rules by four authors]] -- Ayasato Keiji (''Beyond Another Darkness'', ''Marginal Operation''), Murasaki Yukiya (''[[Lightnovel/SwordPrincessAltina]]''), Maruyama Kugane (''[[LightNovel/{{Overlord2012}} OVERLORD]]''), Shibamura Yuuri (''VideoGame/GunparadeMarch: Another Princess'').

Though similar in premise to the well-established and well-known ''Series/DotHack'' and ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' franchises, ''Log Horizon'' is notable in several ways: it takes great care to explain the internal logic and mechanics of the game world, it has no apparent penalty for player death, and it is very focused on the lifestyle aspects of the various characters as they all adjust to living in this strange space. The drama of dying in the game world doesn't exist, and so the plot can instead center on how they settle into their new lives in the game, which has a whole host preexisting rules, laws, and societies to make things interesting.

* ChefOfIron: Any Adventurer with a sufficient level in the Chef Subclass could count but special mention goes to Nyan-ta. He was the first in the Yamato server (and possibly the first in general) to figure out how to make edible meals, and the food he prepares is ''[[SupremeChef superb]]''. As a [[GlassCannon Swashbuckler]] he's also capable of kicking major ass when he needs to.

* {{Ninja}}: Akatsuki calls herself one, but technically she's an assassin.
** Assassin being her Adventurer class, which is itself only a variable of the main attack offensive character design. Due to her subclass (Tractor) in combination with her main class, she's as technically close as possible, game wise.

** Unlike Adventurers, when Landers die, [[FinalDeath they die for good]]. This very nearly happens to [[spoiler: Rudy]] following his HeroicSacrifice in the Goblin King Invasion arc. As he's dying, Shiroe [[spoiler: draws up a magical contract which would theoretically make the former an Adventurer]], thus saving his life. It works... by making "Adventurer" his SUBclass.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Monsters are slowly gaining more and more intelligence and are becoming this.
** The seventh book is full of this. [[spoiler:When Shiroe and the Silver Swords were fighting a raid boss, two different raid bosses from different parts of the same dungeon leave their respective lairs to come to its aid and curb stomped the party, as each were individually balanced for an entire raid to fight. One raid boss even intentionally damaged itself to spawn additional monsters to join the fight.]]
** Kanami's spinoff trumps any example shown in the printed material so far, after it reveals [[spoiler:the existence of the <Genius> monsters. Not only do they play on the pre-programmed limitations of the Ancients to either destroy or seal them, they abuse ''game mechanics'' to make themselves nigh unstoppable. Just to show how dangerous these things are, only ''two'' of them nearly overrun China]].
