** Kirito manages to match his sister in a kendo sparring match with his SAO skills (it should be noted that she's a national level competitor), dodging a blow that reportedly had never been successfully blocked by either her coaches or tournament opponents, and later beats a knife-wielding madman barehanded.

It's all but stated that Kirito would have lost had his opponent been in tip-top shape.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The video games treat certain elements of the Aincrad and Fairy Dance arcs as this. Yes, it's explicitly an AU, but the system interrupting Kirito's duel with Kayaba can't account for Sachi still being alive, Amusphere users being imported into the death game, or the fact that Gun Gale Online even exists at this point, let alone that Sinon was playing it.
** The English release attempts to explain this: Suguha/Leafa had managed to get her hands on a [=NerveGear=] and was actively using it when she was "imported" into Aincrad. Likewise, Sinon was supposedly taking part in a hospital test case to see if [=MediCuboids=] (whose technology derives from the [=NerveGear=]) could be used for therapy purposes.

The glitching in SAO registered several of these [=NerveGear=] derivatives as SAO players and "imported" them into the game [[spoiler:which is presumably also how Yuuki Konno ended up in Aincrad as the PostFinalBoss]].

** This is a plot point in the ''Hollow Realization'' game, where the NPCs [[spoiler:are in reality AIs]] who permanently die if killed, while players revive. Using NPCs as bait in the game is a legitimate, if frowned upon by some, tactic, and the system brutally punishes players who actually attack NPCs to minimize this.

** ''Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment/Hollow Fragment'' starts off with Kirito killing Kayaba but the game continues on to floor 76 and beyond. Also, Sachi never died [[spoiler:though the Sachi that Kirito meets was revealed to be an AI]], Kirito makes two new friends in the form of Philia and Strea [[spoiler:who's actually an AI just like Yui]], and Leafa and Sinon also become trapped in Sword Art Online, after a VR experiment [[spoiler:by Nobuyuki Sugou]] they volunteered on went wrong. Also, [[spoiler:Sugou ends up in Aincrad due to attempting to trap players for his mind-control experiments and ultimately becomes the final boss. He is defeated and is publicly revealed for his corruption, preventing the events of the Fairy Dance arc entirely]].

A swordsman player named Kirito is one of the fated ten-thousand. He holds the advantage of having beta-tested the game before becoming trapped, giving him prior knowledge of the game layout and its combat systems, but he struggles to make attachments and prefers being a solo player. Now, he and every other player in ''Sword Art Online'' must fight to survive in a virtual world that has become all too real to them.
