** For that matter, when SAO survivors begin to lose their memories whenever they lose to an boss, and why is that? Because [[spoiler:Ordinal Scale's creator is trying to resurrect her dead daughter into an AI and is doing so by taking everyone's memories of encountering her in the game, and what will happen when she is remade into an AI? Everyone whose wearing the Ordinal Scale devices will get their brains microwaved, just like in SAO if they die.]] It takes ParanoiaFuel to a whole new level as very little know about it.

* ''Accel World Vs Sword Art Online'':
** Persona Vabel, full stop. She has seemingly limitless power over Alfheim Online, callously fusing it with Brain Burst, sending Kuroyukihime to assassinate Kirito and Asuna, and even Kirito doesn't know what she is, only that she has GM-level abilities after she abducts Yui. [[spoiler: It turns out she's a version of MHCP-001, as in Yui herself, from the distant future, who, without Asuna or Kirito to care for her, has turned cruel and heartless, and seems to have taken on aspects of avatars from Brain Burst, suggesting the events of the game's story created her in the first place.]]

* We've gone ''this far'' without mentioning [[spoiler:Kirito being injected with the heart failure drug at the end of GGO?]]
* ''Ordinal Scale'' gives us a look at[[spoiler: what would have been Aincrad's final boss. And she is NASTY. Gigantic, ridiculously fast and strong, almost sadistic in temperament, she very nearly slowly crushes Silica and Kirito to death. Oh, and she can HEAL. FridgeHorror kicks in when you realize that in the original game, after beating ''this'' monster, the players of Aincrad would find themselves confused and bewildered when they weren't immediately released for clearing the game... only for one of their strongest players to turn on them, reveal himself as Kayaba Akihiko, the man who trapped them all in there, declaring himself the REAL final boss. One can only imaging how demoralizing that would be and how much worse the fight against Kayaba would have been if the ''previous'' boss was only a fakeout.]]

* Imagine that Video Games have taken a turn where you don't need a controller or a keyboard to play, all you need is a helmet and living the life of a adverting hero isn't just a moving picture on a screen...Now take one game called ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'' and have the creator of said game make it so that If you die in the game you die in real life...not scary enough for you? Okay you know how people kill for fun? They're playing this game too and they made a guild where that's the ONLY type of person that's in said guild...Oh and you're probably saying "I have these awesome Skills, I can jus-" they have a means to paralyze you and kill you as they please...Not so simple now is it? Ya know what lets make it ever more complected, the game has a system that can pretty much label anyone as a Player Killer, a gem above every Players heads Green Means "He's a good guy He hasn't killed anyone" Orange Means "Oh he killed a guy...probably in self defense" Red Means "He's killed a bunch of people"... you know how in real life if you're involved in a murder you're charged with "Assisted Homicide"? unless you actually killed the guy... your gem won't change. Also, the game uses your actual face so let's say you stopped some guy from killing a player to get his jolly for the evening and he wants revenge but OH NO the game's cleared, everyone will be logged out...he can recognize you in public and kill you in your sleep...Fun game wouldn't you say?

** The first victim Death Gun claims is killed in a livestream. One moment, he's bragging about having won the last [=BoB=] tournament, and the very next, [[NightmareFace his face contorts in pain]] and he clutches his chest before disconnecting.

* The look on [[spoiler:Kyouji's face as he's proposing to Shino. It's at this point it becomes clear that he's lost it. Shino did tell him to wait for her and was probably sincere, but she wasn't expecting him to be this when the time came. After she pushes him away, he decides that since she won't have him, he'll just rape and kill her, then kill himself to join her in the next life, but not before confessing the entire Death Gun conspiracy to her. It's more terrifying when you look at his face before Kirito manages to save her in a nick of time.]]

to:

* Shino Asada's backstory: To put it this way, her father died in a car crash when she was ''younger than 2'', forcing her and her mother to move north from Tokyo. Just as things were going normal, she ends up in the crosshairs of a robbery, culminating in her grabbing the gun during a struggle and unwittingly shooting the robber dead. It's already bad enough but [[FromBadToWorse it gets a whole lot worse]]: Not only is her mother shocked in horror at the sight of her daughter holding a gun and having seemingly killed someone but she's treated like a pariah. Any attempts at therapy are all for naught as they hold onto their culturally-enforced disgust for guns and those who use them, as well as the belief that children are inherently innocent, and for her to have killed someone, even in self-defense, seems to them as meaning she's got the mindset of a cold-blooded killer.

** TheReveal of what [[MysticalWaif Premiere's]] quest is actually about. [[spoiler:It turns out her quest has been [[NotTheIntendedUse hijacked]] by the Cardinal System due to its similarities to the CreationMyth between Ainground/Aincrad. Why is this NightmareFuel? Because the reason why the Cardinal System is doing this is because, due to ''Sword Art: Origin'' being all but a clone of the original SAO, it thinks Ainground ''is'' Aincrad and one of its modules is to test [[ApocalypseHow Aincrad's destruction as it's supposed to happen when SAO is cleared]] due to ''Origin'' still being in its beta state. But since Aincrad doesn't exist in ''Origin'', it's going to fulfill the CreationMyth that will destroy Ainground and create Aincrad, and then [[AllForNothing destroy Aincrad]] all for the sake of the module test. And since [=NPCs=] die for real in this game and they're functional AI, the twin {{Apocalypse How}}s will essentially commit mass ''genocide'']].
* [[spoiler:Speaking of genocide, try having drones surrounding a stadium unleashing microwaves around a live concert audience.]] That's right. In ''Ordinal Scale'', [[spoiler: the New National Stadium in Tokyo (which will become the main venue for the 2020 Olympics) is turned into a giant [=NerveGear=]. Thank goodness that ultimately doesn't happen.]]
