** The trailer in ''Rebirth'' for ''Reminisce' includes the infamous "AIDA's observation room!" line by Gabi which is never said in the actual game. The trailer in general suggests that the AIDA Server will take up a large portion if not most of the volume: instead it covers as little as the first hour.

* NeverTrustATrailer: Both of the OnTheNext trailers are packed with misdirection and lies about the next volume's story:

** The trailer in ''Reminisce'' for ''Redemption'' suggests that Xth Form will be used against [[spoiler:Ovan]] instead of being just the last 10% of the story. [[spoiler:Cubia]] isn't mentioned at all, nor is [[spoiler:Sakaki]] despite the latter taking up the entire first half of the game.

* ThatOneBoss: The final boss of Volume 2 is a good contender for the toughest boss in the whole series, owing to his ability to continuously spawn in DemonicSpiders that shuffle between [[BeamSpam spamming lasers at you]], making the boss invincible as long as they're on the field, and healing the boss so rapidly that he can go from nearly dead to full health in under thirty seconds. Each of these mooks comes in packs, flits around the fairly large arena, has a considerable amount of HP, and defeating a wave just causes the next to instantly start spawning in. That's not even paying any attention to the boss's own attacks, which often hit your whole party at once, or in one case hit Haseo for upwards of half his life bar with no ability to dodge or block. The final Avatar battle afterward is practically a cakewalk by comparison.

* TaremeEyes[=/=]TsurimeEyes: Saku has TsurimeEyes. Bo has TaremeEyes. This is how you tell them apart on the party invite list since all you can see is Sakubo's eyes.

** Yata has you meet his alt account [[spoiler:Nala, which he's used as a sockpuppet to infiltrate Moon Tree]], at [[MeaningfulName Theta: Clever Genius's Moon Raven]].



** This can actually lead to hillarious cases of abuse, such as having the [[BonusBoss Doppelganger]] die from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO9Fpxixqb4 having a monster dozens of levels above him thrown at him]], or the FinalBoss of the 3rd game [[HoistByHisOwnPetard killing itself in one attack]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-Fai2cRmyQ by having an overly low level ally equipped with a counter customized armor]].

* [[AntiGravityClothing Anti Gravity Weapon]]: For some reason, the sharp edges on Haseo's signature twin blades are not connected at all to the main "spine".



* Ironic Echo:
--> Haseo in Volume 1: "More power! Power, power, power, POWER!"
--> Haseo in Volume 3, after his "Rebirth": "Power? What good is having power now?"



-->'''SURPASS YOU LIMITS!!!'''

** Many, many minor NPC names correlate with their personality or appearance. An NPC called "angel hair" [[note]]which she will gladly explain to you as a type of thin, white strand of pasta; that is, an even thinner version of Capellini[[/note]] has a notably white, thin strands of hair on her NPC model.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Minigame}}: Two, in fact! The Steam Bike racing and from the second game, Crimson VS. Crimson VS is essentially a collectible card game, it is different than most card games in which you assemble your deck, and instead of directly battling enemies, you upload your deck to the internet and the server will automatch your deck against other people depending on your rank. The genius of this is that all you need to do within the game is assemble the deck, upload it, and you can go on playing GU, advancing in the plot, or do whatever. Then after some time, you can return to check your Crimson VS progress. Even better, battle replays will give you some sort of an idea to beat that particular opponent if you lost and replay wins hints you at combos that work. Incidentally, the Crimson VS all-time champion is [[spoiler: Gaspard]].


Added DiffLines:

* WeCannotGoOnWithoutYou: Despite being an MMO, when Haseo bites it, the game is over. Also the Arena rules: take out the Leader, you win the battle.

** Haseo's in-game character level depends on how you grind his character, but story segments routinely describe how difficult battles and dungeons are with reference to what level Haseo's character is expected to be at the time rather than what you ground it to.

** Haseo's in-game character level depends on how you grind his character, but story segments routinely describe how difficult battles and dungeons are with reference to what level Haseo's character is expected to be at the time rather than what you ground it to. This can lead to a somewhat contradictory display of a tough battle he barely wins in the cutscene when in actual combat he's winning with relative ease or vice versa.

* NoExportForYou: The one-episode sequel OVA, ''.hack//G.U. Returner'', has not been localized officially and there is no indication it ever will be. It's a real shame, since it clears up a '''lot''' of confusion in the ending. The games also never saw a release in certain parts of the world.

* FurryFandom: At least two guilds and several message board posts in the game play this trope straight (and rather innocuously compared to many Western works that reference the phenomenon).
