* [[IronWoobie Asada Shino]]'s backstory: as a child, she had the misfortune of being at the post office when a crazed gunman held it up. She managed to take the gun away from the robber when he threatened her mother and shot him repeatedly. Ever since then, [[{{Trigger}} she can't look at guns, or even have someone point their finger at her like a gun, without suffering a nervous breakdown.]]

* In Volume 7/the Mother's Rosario arc, the name for the guild "Sleeping Knights" doesn't mean much at first. But then you realize that [[spoiler: most of them have a terminal illness, and their name is ''Sleeping'' Knights.]] Needless to say, it's heartbreaking.

**It can also be seen as a tearjerking moment when the Drunk Apes are killed, especially to anyone who has ever worked with gorillas.

** [[spoiler: The first thing Kazuto did after going back home from the hospital is [[TheMourningAfter mourning Eugeo's loss]]. It hits him '''''so bad''''', even Suguha has to listen to his story in UW after comforting him.]]

* [[spoiler:The whole part where Asuna learns she's becoming amnesiac. First the nightmare she has about Kirito forgetting her, then when she wakes up, she tries to recall her memorieswith him in SAO, but their faces are blurred out. And she breaks down while trying to make tea after learning that more of her memories will be lost. Sure, she gets better by the end of the film, but still...]]

** [[spoiler:Sachi hums the song while Kirito utterly breaks into ManlyTears]]. Bonus points for the darkly sad and lonely atmosphere of that inn room during Christmas Eve. [[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.]] [[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.]]

** Kirito does not expect to survive the quest for the ultra-rare item [[spoiler: that will resurrect Sachi]]. He thinks he deserves to die in the attempt for such a failure. If Klein's offers of help sound like he's trying to talk someone out of jumping off a ledge, ''that's because he is''.
** Think about it: This dude, the token lech in the main cast, convinces his friend not to leap off the slippery slope of [[DeathSeeker death-seeking]].

*** The above desperate quest to recapture a lost past makes the ending theme of the film, ''Catch The Moment'', doubly meaningful and sad.
