Added DiffLines:

* CrosshairAware: A major mechanic of ''Gun Gale Online'' is that players can see where an opponent is aiming a split-second before the bullet actually fires, allowing players to DodgeTheBullet and, [[MasterSwordsman in Kirito's case]], ParryingBullets.

Added DiffLines:

Asuna and Kirito (Pictured above) were chosen to represent ''Sword Art Online'' in the crossover FightingGame ''VideoGame/DengekiBunkoFightingClimax'' by Creator/{{Sega}}, with Suguha Kirigaya (Leafa) as [[AssistCharacter one of the support characters]]; later, Yuuki Konno from ''Mother's Rosario'' was introduced as a playable character in the ''Ignition'' UpdatedRerelease, with Karen Kohiruimaki (LLENN) as a support character; with three playables and two support, SAO became the series with [[SpotlightStealingCrossover the most representation in that game]].

* '''''Project Alicization''''': Kirito awakens in an unfamiliar virtual world (called "Underworld") with no memories of how he got there. He must venture to discover the secrets behind this world and why he has been trapped within it, all while questioning whether he is the real Kirito or merely an ArtificialIntelligence in his likeness. ''Alicization'' is so far the longest story arc in the franchise, and still ongoing (at least in the light novel adaptation).

** PlayedStraight in ''Hollow Fragment'', where the system creates a Hollow copy [[spoiler:of PoH]], who is just as AxCrazy as the real one and nearly succeeds in killing every player. And at the end of the main story, [[spoiler:Strea gets corrupted and becomes the last floor boss.]]

* FoodPorn: From Asuna's sandwiches to the incredibly rare (and coveted) ragout rabbit meat, the food in Aincrad always looks tasty.

* YearInsideHourOutside: In Volume 9, beginning the Alicization arc, Kirito has a part-time job as a beta tester for a new [=VRMMO=] that uses time acceleration: several weeks in-game are a weekend in the real world... at least at first. [[spoiler: In the non-canon sidestory after Alicization ends, Kirito and harem spend ''fifty thousand'' hours (5 years 8 months) on an in-game honeymoon, while five hours pass in the real world]].

* ThereAreNoTherapists: Subverted. The AI that controls Aincrad created a program to monitor and repair the players' psychological states. However, said program was then forbidden from interacting with the players in any way. On launch day, when the creator announced that [[TheMostDangerousVideoGame they were all trapped, and anyone who died died for real]], the conflict between the program's core programming to help the players and the orders to not interfere created errors. [[spoiler:She eventually appeared in the game as a little girl named Yui, in order to become the daughter of two of the only happy players in the entire game: Asuna and Kirito]].
* ThereIsOnlyOneBed: [[spoiler: So Kirito has to sleep on the floor while Silica gets the bed.]]
** Strangely played straight AND subverted in Episode 3 with Sachi. Both of them get in the same bed, but absolutely nothing happens.
*** Kirito actually didn't know anything could happen. This was over a year before he even found out about the option to turn the Ethics Code off.

* MarryThemAll: In the Noncanon Gaiden X2, which takes place at the end of the Underworld arc, basically all of Kirito's somewhat UnwantedHarem decide to just marry him in-game, and both [[OfficialCouple Kirito & Asuna]] agree, making the BattleHarem "official", at least for around 5 years of accelerated time. Non-canonical, especially since the Alicization arc is still being written, and [[spoiler: Ronie wasn't part of the harem (though Alice was)]].
