* ArchaicWeaponForAnAdvancedAge: As the ''Phantom Bullet'' arc is set within an [[FirstPersonShooter MMOFPS]], guns are the primary weapons, with melee limited to general KnifeNut options. There's a LaserBlade JokeItem, but it's so expensive that no-one used it until Kirito waltzed into the MinigameZone and won a shitload of money from a game where ''[[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard the computer blatantly cheats]]'', combined it with his [[HadToBeSharp SAO-honed]] ImplausibleFencingPowers and realized the game mechanics permitted him to turn it into a LethalJokeWeapon by ''[[NotTheIntendedUse slicing bullets in half]]''. Afterwards, the Kagemitsu explodes in popularity as players try ([[DifficultButAwesome with limited success]]) to replicate his feats.

** Death Gun is an expy of Darth Vader: he's a badass who establishes himself early on as someone not to be trifled with, he wears a face-concealing mask that appears to have some sort of breathing apparatus, and he's connected to Kirito in a very intimate way (his being a fellow SAO survivor, similar to Luke Skywalker being Vader's son) [[spoiler:and he's a formidable swordfighter]].

Yuuki, on the other hand, decided to live her life to the fullest in VR, becoming one of the most powerful swordswomen in ALO, but also one of its kindest and most beloved players.]]
