Yui was originally designed as an AI for the first SAO game, but she quickly gained her own identity after developing relationships with Kirito and Asuna.

Leafa (Kirigaya Suguha)

Knowing there are no real-world consequences to what you're doing makes it difficult to be courageous. In light of this, even if Leafa is a fantastic character who greatly aids Kirito in ALfheim, she will fall short when compared to other characters that experienced the horror of SAO.


Since she was a young child, Alice has been brave and caring, accidentally breaking the Taboo Index while attempting to assist a stranger.


Although Eugeo was motivated to become a warrior by Kirito, his unwavering focus and moral compass were entirely his own.

Asuna (Yuuki Asuna)

Asuna initially had no hope for her future in SAO, yet she swiftly rose to become one of their most courageous warriors.

Sinon (Asada Shino)

Despite not receiving much praise, the Phantom Bullet arc did establish one of the strongest and bravest characters in the show.

Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)

In Sword Art Online, Kirito had to bolster his fortitude in order to deal with each catastrophe. He is brave because of how much he volunteered, taking on extra responsibilities that put his life and soul in risk only because others were.
