**this was also told straight-up to anyone who managed to obtain the Terminal Disk with the special edition release of Rebirth, which is the prequel to the games lore and why The world R1 was destroyed and rebuilt as R2, which revealed [[Spoiler:The reason why the R1 servers were destroyed is because one of the game developers wanted to PREVENT another Cubia from emerging, thus stole one of the epitaphs, only for their coworker to continue their experiment in creating a Dummy-AI to run everything, and NO-ONE in the main cast had Any idea that would happen.]] So...yeah, it was explained, but was meant to be an unexpected Snarl to Ovan's master plan.



** A rather unusual case. [[spoiler: When he was younger, Haseo's player Ryou Misaki was the antagonist PK Sora in The World v1, but loses his memory of it when Sora is data-drained by Skeith at the end of ''Anime/DotHackSign'', putting Ryou in a coma. He later goes on to become the hero of the GU games]].
** A straighter example would be [[spoiler:Endrance, one of Volume 1's main villains, who saves Haseo from being put into a coma in Volume 2]].

** Haseo has one after Shino becomes comatose. The later half of .hack//Roots is Haseo, having completely snapped from losing Shino, training and viciously hunting down Tri-Edge. [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge In six months' time from Shino's coma to the beginning of Rebirth, he's still BSOD-ing, only now he's reached level 133, and killed so many [=PKs=] on his way to find Tri-Edge]] he gains his nickname, "The Terror of Death".

Though this is borderline as Word-of-god has said that the Root's story wildly diverged from what was intended and developed for the G.U. Games.

* LostForever:
** Musics, Wallpapers and some Movies inside the game if you didn't get before moving to the next Vol. or worse, if you started playing in the second or third Volume.
** Greeting Cards are great for boosting relationships with party members, but they come in finite amounts--once you use them up (like the Promise Card, of which you ONLY get one), they're gone for good.
