* 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.]]

** 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...

* [[IronWoobie Asada Shino]]'s backstory.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/Mothers 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.

** 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 Jap), 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.]]

* The Alicization Arc, which has [[spoiler: Eugeo dying, Cardinal dying, Charlotte dying, all within a few dozen pages from one another. Eugeo's death breaks Kirito, who [[HeroicBSOD blames himself]].]]
** [[spoiler: The attack on Ocean Turtle ends with Kirito's brain damage [[GameBreakingInjury getting worse]] to the point where he's out of commission for the next three volumes, even though he's still inside UW. The cover of ''Alicization Invading'' portrays the sadness quite nicely.]]
** [[spoiler: Made even worse near the end of ''Alicization Awakening'' when [=PoH=] beats him up while still suffering from his GameBreakingInjury.]]
* Alicization's climax in the web novels (which is soon to be adapted for the light novel adaptation's 18th volume, ''Alicization Lasting'') has several:
** [[spoiler:Kirito's JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind moment is a mix of this, and NightmareFuel. Seeing his past memories and Eugeo's dead body [[DespairEventHorizon takes a huge toll]] on the poor kid to the point that ''[[DrivenToSuicide he would've killed himself by crushing his heart with his bare hands]]''... if it weren't for the images of Asuna, Leafa, Sinon, and Eugeo [[YouAreNotAlone snapping him out of it]].]]
** [[spoiler: The fact that Kirito is stuck in UW for 200 years is very heartbreaking, especially when he weeps at the World End Altar while thinking that he won't be able to see everyone in the RW again. Fortunately, he's not the only one: Asuna stays behind UW to be with him.]]
** [[spoiler: And after ending the war in UW, he still keeps Eugeo's sword as his TragicKeepsake. Kirito's bond with Eugeo is [[LivingEmotionalCrutch just as important as his relationship with Asuna]].]]
** [[spoiler: After being transferred back to the hospital from Ocean Turtle, Asuna pays him a visit and placed a new blue rose in his bedside table. Said rose brings him sad memories in UW.]]
** [[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.]]
