Here, I really lived...". And to top it all off at her RealLife funeral over 200 players arrive in the flesh, surprising everyone at the hospital who thought she had no friends.]]

** If you don't meet the requirements for the True Ending, then in the final battle, either Kureha or Zeliska will perform a HeroicSacrifice to save you and since they are wearing Nerve Gears at the time it means they die for real.

* When Asuna hears Kirito's story in Episode 10 about [[spoiler:the death of the Moonlit Black Cats, the only player name Kirito mentions is Sachi's. When you remember Asuna's tearful breakdown later in the episode, you realize she said it because after hearing her name... she likely realized Kirito stayed a solo player not just because of their deaths... but because he couldn't save his first love.]]

** [[spoiler:Sachi leaves a [[DeadManWriting recording crystal]] for Kirito timed to appear on Christmas Eve, which causes Kirito to utterly breaks into ManlyTears]]. Bonus points for the darkly sad and lonely atmosphere of that inn room. [[spoiler:Sachi was his first love, ''especially'' in the web novels, [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend regardless of what he says about that]]. Dude watched his first girlfriend die in front of him, just a few seconds before he reached her position.]] And the only reason his guildmates thought they could take on the challenge was due to Kirito lying about his own level, causing them to overestimate their own abilities. [[spoiler: While they were not in a relationship, the word choices he used (in the original Japanese, at least) strongly implies he was in love with Sachi. But he recognized that emotionally above love, they were first and foremost {{Living Emotional Crutch}}es for each other. Like two {{Broken Bird}}s hanging onto each other for comfort. Which makes her death and his subsequent breakdown even more tragic.]]

** While Yuuki avoided her unfortunate fate in the game continuity, she's still fully conscious of the fact that her time is limited. While talking with Asuna about their friends from the future, Yuuki is certain that she won't last another two decades, as the fact that she was still alive even now was miraculous.

** [[spoiler: After Kirito joins the Black Cats of the Full Moon, they all get annihilated, including Sachi, a girl who reminds him of his sister, and someone he swore to protect. He goes through plenty of shit to find an ultra-rare item that's supposed to resurrect dead players, and eventually gets it with the help of Klein and Furinkazan, only to learn it only works for up to ten seconds after death, the amount of time it takes once their avatar shatters for the [=NerveGear=] to destroy their brain. By that point, Sachi has been dead for six months.]]

** [[spoiler:In episode 9, after taking the Gleam Eyes down, the moment Kirito wakes up the viewer can briefly see Sachi's face but with Asuna's voice. At that moment you suddenly start to realize Kirito has begun seeing parallels in the two girls, and likely he's begun to have feelings for Asuna, but he's likely constantly reminded of Sachi and her death that he's too scared to get close to her.]]

* In Episode 14, [[spoiler:Asuna dies in Kirito's arms after taking a strike meant for him]]. He picks up the fallen sword, surely ready to start a RoaringRampageOfRevenge and swings weakly at his opponent. No strength, no speed, no technique. His opponent barely even has to dodge. [[DespairEventHorizon He is clearly completely broken.]] [[spoiler: And then Heathcliff runs him through, the look on his face obvious that this is nothing more than [[MercyKill putting the poor boy out of his misery]].

** There was a quest chain involving Yui finding and befriending a puppy called Mr. Woofles. They help her get back to the forest and have a heartfelt farewell. However the quest hasn't ended and it's revealed Mr. Woofles is in danger from Kobold attacks. Kirito, Argo, and Yui return to the forest and fight off a lot of Kobold mobs, however some of them sneak up to attack Yui. Mr. Woofles (now adult sized) jumps in to rescue Yui and saves her. However it's revealed she had been injured prior to showing up. A despaired Yui watches as Mr. Woofles succumbs to her wounds and passes away. Soon after, the heroes find five puppies that look just like Mr. Woofles, which turn out to be her litter. Mr. Woofles had been protecting her young ones from the Kobold attacks, so Yui and the others swear to take care of them just as their mother had done so. Later it's revealed that for other players who did the same quest, Mr. Woofles never came to their rescue. Yui was the only one who managed to have the unique quest event due to befriending Mr. Woofles and forming a bond that transcended the quest. Yui receives back the collar she bought for Mr. Woofles which has turned into a powerful item as a quest reward.
