** [[GameplayandStorySegregation Gameplay wise Alkaid accusing Haseo of cheating.]] To show her "advanced skill" that leads to Haseo accidentally releasing his Avatar in despair she will pull out a free beast mode awakening and combo him once you lower her HP enough. If you're overleveled and knock out her two partners first then it will literally come out of nowhere just to justify her "strength".


* MaamShock: Haseo starts calling Pi an old hag after she calls him an unruly child, much to her ire. That pretty much sets the tone for their relationship for a while. Saku gets in on the act later too.

* DubNameChange: In keeping with the fantasy themes of all the classes ("''Steam'' Gunner", "''Macabre'' dancer", "''Shadow'' Warlock", etc), the simple named "Multi-Weapon" class was changed to "Adept Rogue" from Japanese to English.



** Why did the localizers change "Multi-Weapon" to "Adept Rogue"? The Japanese class name of "Multi-Weapon" is clear enough, but "Adept Rogue" sounds like a skilled thief.


* TranslationTrainWreck: When one performs a CounterAttack in the arena, the English PlayStation 2 version mistakenly calls it a rengeki which means combo attack, when it really should be a hangeki which means counter attack. It also shows the kanji for rengeki (連撃) in the background instead of the kanji for hangeki (反撃) by mistake. Volume 1 also plays the sound for rengeki as well. Volumes 2 and 3 play the correct sound for hangeki, but display the graphics for rengeki. The Windows version fixes this by displaying the correct graphics and playing the correct sound.

** Anyone who has the Twin Blade job. This class is great for dealing maximum damage per second against ground-based enemies without hard bodies or armor via DeathOfAThousandCuts and excel at opening up enemies to rengeki attacks, but is not very effective against armored and hard-bodied enemies and is nearly worthless against airborne enemies most of the time.

* BladeOnAStick: Used by the Lord Partizan Class. This class deals high damage per second against single enemies and has great AntiAir attacks, but can be taken down easily by either magic or by mobs of enemies because this class can only perform frontal attacks.

* TheRedMage: Macabre Dancers are able to use healing, attack, and status magic, but do not learn the highest level spells of the other magic classes (Harvest Clerics and Shadow Warlocks). This class is the only class that can learn how to cast StatusBuff and StatusAilment spells by using skill points instead of requiring the use of a consumable item in order to do so, and also have some decent damage to their regular attacks if they need to resort to those.



* WhiteMage: The Harvest Cleric class, which specializes more on healing and buffing magic rather than offensive ones.

This class is great at healing attacks, but skilled physical attackers can easily take them down with [[CounterAttack counter attacks]], especially with hangeki attacks in the arena because these counter attacks cancel the magical attacks being executed. Skilled players can ShootTheMedicFirst in the arena, so it is much better to teach every member of an arena party healing spells including those that fix StandardStatusEffects rather than depending just on a Harvest Cleric for their healing needs. The only real advantage of having a Harvest Cleric in the arena is that one can execute much better healing spells than what is available in the magic shops.


* SinisterScythe: Used by the Flick Reaper class. This class excels at taking down airborne enemies, and because its normal attack is a SpinAttack, it can take down mobs of enemies. This class is weak against enemies that get too close to the user and to magic.

Taking place after the events in ''Anime/DotHackSign'' and the original ''Franchise/DotHack'' games, the popular {{MMORPG}} "The World" is open for business yet again. Well, the new World. The old one was destroyed when the servers mysteriously burned down. The new world is a bit DarkerAndEdgier these days with all the PlayerKilling. The PKK (Player Killer Killer) from ''.hack//Roots'', Haseo, has become legendary in his own right. As a hunter; he has killed hundreds of Player Killers and has gained the title [[RedBaron The Terror Of Death]]. Yes, [[ForeShadowing the same title the first Boss in the first game series had]]. He is hunting down a mysterious Player Killer known as Tri-Edge, for this mysterious Tri-Edge PK'd Haseo's friend Shino, and she fell into a coma in real life.

* {{Combos}}: Yeah. Lots of them. The combat system revolves around them, actually; powerful attack boosts called "Rengekis" are done after doing significant amounts of combos on a single enemy but break the chain once executed, while combos of 16 or more will create a boost in morale from a party member.

Added DiffLines:

* CounterAttack: Counter attacks are big in the combat system of this game. Either a skill or a charge attack can be used to counter a skill or item use in progress and interrupt or cancel it. If one performs a counter attack in the arena using a skill, it is called a hangeki (反撃) attack, raises your party morale as long as your other party members are alive, and decreases the enemy party's morale. They do not double the damage of a skill, unlike rengeki attacks. In the PlayStation 2 version, hangeki attacks are mistakenly called rengeki attacks. This is fixed for the Windows version.


* {{BFS}}: One of the classes is Edge Punisher. Their weapons are steam-powered swords, which are twice the size of their characters. Haseo can use them once he does the first upgrade quest in Volume 1.

* {{BFS}}: One of the classes is Edge Punisher. Their weapons are steam-powered giant swords, which are twice the size of their characters. Haseo can use them once he does the first upgrade quest in Volume 1. They excel at breaking armor and doing damage against enemies with hard bodies, but stink at opening up an enemy against rengeki attacks. Since they use heavy armor which is weak against magic, they are vulnerable to magic users.

* CantDropTheHero: Despite playing an MMO where anyone could be the party leader, Haseo can't relinquish the role; even if you have a way to revive him, it will still ask if you want to retry if Haseo dies. It goes further in that even though your party members get gold while you adventure together and can even level up outside the party, they never buy new equipment for themselves.

However, if you were smart enough to bring someone in your party that has Rip Maen in his or her skill list and you chose Free Will or Life for the strategy, he or she will revive you if you wait long enough, allowing you to continue the battle as long as you are not in the arena whose rules state that a team is defeated if the leader is killed.
