* GoodExportForYou: The Japanese version of Lost Song had a major update, updating it to Version 2.0, which added several new features including a bonus dungeon based on the Caliber arc and a bonus cameo character. The English version is ported off that version, and has all the DLC included automatically. Oh yes, and they even fixed translation errors from the Asian English release.

*** The GGO arc (''Sword Art Online II'' for the anime) has been jokingly referred to as "[[MaleGaze Sinon Ass]] Online" for the many unnecessary ass shots of Sinon during the anime, ''especially'' in episode 10.

* BadExportForYou: The English translation for the Western version of ''Hollow Fragment'' is only slightly better than the Asian version's, meaning there are still [[BlindIdiotTranslation numerous grammatical and spelling errors, some of which are bad to the point where the text may be incomprehensible]]. Fortunately the translation for ''Lost Song'' is much better. And now, an UpdatedRerelease called ''Hollow Fragment: Re'' is in development for the Playstation 4 with [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/05/29/sword-art-online-re-hollow-fragment-to-get-new-english-translation-on-playstation-4 a much improved translation.]]

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** The original Japanese version:
*** Creator/KoichiYamadera voices Kayaba. It's also amusing in hindsight, because he's using [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Togusa]]'s voice for a villain who wouldn't be out of place in that verse.
*** Creator/ToruOkawa is using his [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Saito]] voice for Heathcliff. There's also just enough of [[TearstoTiara Demon King Arawn]] in there to make you sit up and take note.
*** Creator/NobuyukiHiyama voices Diabel, a charismatic man who was able to gather a large group of people to hunt down the boss of the first floor. [[DeadStarWalking He dies in the same episode]].
*** [[LightNovel/BodaciousSpacePirates Princess Gruier Serenity]] is [[Creator/HarukaTomatsu Asuna]].
*** Creator/MegumiToyoguchi plays an EvilIsSexy guild leader.
*** Creator/TakehitoKoyasu plays Sugou.
*** Creator/AyanaTaketatsu plays Suguha. [[LightNovel/{{Oreimo}} My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute]] indeed.
*** HiroakiHirata [[Anime/TigerAndBunny (Wild Tiger)]] is Klein.
*** In the second season, Creator/SoichiroHoshi a.k.a. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Kira Yamato]] is... ''Death Gun.''
*** Creator/MiyukiSawashiro is Sinon.
*** Creator/HiroshiKamiya kickstarts ''Sword Art Online II'' as [=XeXeeD=]... [[DeadStarWalking and promptly dies within minutes]], setting the tone for the ''Gun Gale Online'' arc.
*** Creator/YokoHikasa is Endou, one of Sinon's bullies.
** The English dub:
*** Creator/BrycePapenbrook as Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya.
*** Creator/CheramiLeigh as Asuna Yuuki.
*** Creator/CassandraLee as Suguha Kirigaya/Leafa.
*** Creator/ChristineMarieCabanos as Keiko "Silica" Ayano.
*** Creator/SarahWilliams as Lisbeth.
*** Creator/PatrickSeitz is Agil.
*** Creator/StephanieSheh is Yui.

*** Creator/AmandaCelineMiller ([[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening Sully and Cherche]], [[Manga/SailorMoon Makoto Kino[=/=]Sailor Jupiter]]) is Yulier.
*** Akihiko Kayaba happens to be voiced by Creator/MarcDiraison, best known for his roles as [[Manga/{{Berserk}} Guts]] and [[LightNovel/FateZero Tokiomi Tohsaka]]. Interestingly enough, his role was miscredited to Creator/CrispinFreeman due to the misinformation from the Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} ''and'' Website/AnimeNewsNetwork, possibly due to Kayaba "sounding" like him early on. [[note]][[https://twitter.com/CrispinFreeman/status/360139887279751168 He also mentioned that SAO was dubbed using non-union actors]] and since Crispin [[UsefulNotes/UnionsInHollywood is a member of the SAG and doesn't have Financial Core status]], this cannot be so.[[/note]]
*** According to Danielle [=McRae=], the voice actress of Karma and Painwheel, she will be voicing a few characters in this anime[[note]]Also stated that this will be her first anime role[[/note]].
*** And the big reveal that Creator/BenDiskin is actually [[spoiler: [[BigBad Death Gun]] himself.]]
*** And then Creator/EricaMendez joins the crew as Yuuki "Zekken" Konno with her allies:
*** Creator/EricaLindbeck is Nori.
*** Creator/ErikaHarlacher is Siune. She previously voiced Sasha in the first season.
*** Creator/MaxMittelman is Jun.
** The European Spanish dub:
*** Asuna is [[Manga/FairyTail Lucy]], [[Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead Rei Miyamoto]] and... VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}! in ''Anime/BayonettaBloodyFate''.
*** Akihiko Kayaba is [[Series/{{House}} Dr. House]], of all people.
