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

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...]]

* 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.
* Volume 7. All of it, both good ([[spoiler:Asuna's reconciliation with her mother, Kirito's BigDamnHeroes YouShallNotPass, every damn heartwarming moment between Asuna and Yuuki]]) and heartbreaking.
** Special mention has to go out to the end of the novel. [[spoiler:Yuuki is finally succumbing to her lifelong battle against AIDS, and Asuna convinces the Doctor to let Yuuki log into the Medicube one last time before the end. They meet at the same spot where the originally met, and Yuuki gives Asuna Mother's Rosario, her one of a kind 11 hit combo. Following this the Sleeping Knights guild show up and pay their last respects, and Kirito & Co. do the same. Finally, over a thousand players from the game put aside any conflicts and come to say goodbye to the Absolute Sword (or Zekken in Japanese), who fades away after thanking Asuna for all she did and saying "I tried my best to live... 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.]]
*** It's even more heart-rending in the anime. [[spoiler:The episode even drops the normal titles, just to make sure that the focus of the episode is this one event, the final minutes of the greatest fighter in the entire game.]]
** The ED song for the ''Mother's Rosario'' arc episodes "Shirushi", which [[spoiler:is clearly sung from Yuuki Konno's perspective]], and the final lyric hits it home.
--> [[spoiler:I won't forget that I lived with you on this day]]

* Episode 12. That is all. [[spoiler:Yui's reveal and DisneyDeath. She comes back in ALO but still.]]
** Also serves for plenty of in-universe example. Just when [[spoiler: Kirito and Asuna were starting to feel like a real family. Asuna crying in sadness only amplifies this.]]
* Episode 13: Just as Kirito tells Asuna to stay back at the guild headquarters, [[spoiler: she refuses, telling him she'd kill herself if Kirito were to die. After he admits that he'd rather run away with her just so they'd continue to live with each other, she reminds him that their real bodies don't have much time left. She then begins to cry in his arms, saying that she wants to live together with him in the real world.]]
** HarsherInHindsight [[spoiler: in the next episode, where they both die]].
* 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]].]]
** Before then, Kirito and his friends manage to fell a powerful boss. With fourteen high-level players dying in the battle, however, everyone's morale begins to break: with the bosses that follow being harder still, everyone begins to wonder if they really can win and escape from the game...
* The second half of Episode 15. [[spoiler: Kirito learns that Sugou is planning to make Asuna his and tells the boy never to see her again.]] He is completely in tears in the subsequent scene, crying against Suguha's shoulders. Later we see Suguha lie beside him as he sleeps, shedding tears as well, but for a [[AllLoveIsUnrequited rather]] [[KissingCousins different]] reason.



* The hits keep coming in episode 22. First, there's Kirito's attempt at the World Tree's Grand Quest, the last obstacle before he can be reunited with Asuna. He ends up dying in the attempt. Leafa then puts herself in harm's way to retrieve Kirito's Remain Light and revive him. When he tries to re-start the quest, she begs him to return to the funny, friendly Spriggan she met, and pretty much confesses her feelings for him. Unfortunately, Kirito can't accept them, and is determined to save Asuna. [[spoiler:His uttering Asuna's name then causes Leafa to realize something frightening: after Suguha decided to bury her affections for her brother Kazuto, she decided to pursue Kirito...but if Kirito is trying to reach Asuna, that means that ''Kirito is Kazuto''! She has it out with Kazuto in the real world immediately afterwards.]]
