13 Amazing Hand-Picked Quotes From The Sword Art Online Anime


Although there are probably way over 30 or maybe even 40 amazing quotes from Sword Art Online. I’ve chosen these 13 specific quotes which I feel are amazing in their own individual ways. 

I have to admit now, Sword Art Online was one of the first 5 anime that I watched when starting out. It instantly grew on me, mainly due to Bryce Papenbrook being the English dub VA for Kirito. As you can imagine just like any fresh beginner, I had just finished watching The Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix at the time! (Another great anime by the way!).

Below there will be quotes from the following SAO characters;

13. To get your point across

Although a very short-lived character within the SAO world, I feel that in her brief appearance Yuuki gave us a solid quote.

Sometimes you need to fight if you want to get your point across.


“Sometimes you have to fight to get your point across.” 

– Yuuki Konno

12. I always say exactly what I’m feeling

Yuuki is back at it again with the right quotes!

Always live by this, because you shouldn’t let people dictate who you are and what you believe in! Ever.


“I always say exactly what I’m feeling, and if they don’t like me, that’s fine!”

– Yuuki Konno


11. Everybody can fight

I feel that this is something people should think about more. Anyone can fight, they just have to choose to. I really enjoy Kirito’s development within Sword Art Online, I think it’s brilliant!


“Everybody can fight. It’s just a choice of whether you should.”

– Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)

10. Consider hardships as training

I feel that Klein deserved a lot more screen time than he got. He is a pretty funny character and he has definitely made me laugh quite a few times!


“Just consider hardships as another part of training and keep working hard.”

– Klein (Ryotaro Tsuboi)

9. Trust and regret

I have always loved Kirito’s quotes, they have always been so, direct. I think that is the perfect word to describe them.


“I’d rather trust and regret, than doubt and regret.”

– Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)

8. Levels are just numbers

I couldn’t pick where this one should go as compared to the rest of these, this one is just as important! There will always be something more important than being powerful!


“Levels are just numbers. In this world, strength is just an illusion. There are more important things.”

– Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)

7. We had a code

This is probably one of the most important parts of Sword Art Online in season 1. Everyone cared for everyone no matter what.


“In SAO we had a code, “Never let another Player’s HP hit zero no matter what”. We knew if it dropped to nothing that Player would die.”

– Klein (Ryotaro Tsuboi)

6. You can cry when it hurts

It’s not a weakness to feel sad. It’s okay to cry when it hurts. Regardless of whether it’s due to virtual reality or the real world.


“Whether here or in the real world, you can cry when it hurts. There’s no rule that you can’t show feelings just because it’s a game.”

– Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)

5. I will cut down that tree

There are quite a handful of Eugeo quotes I could think of, but this one stood out to me the most. The message behind it is to never give up. If you give up, you never know what opportunities you may miss achieving.


“One of these days, I will cut down that tree”

– Eugeo

4. Life isn’t just doing things for yourself

It’s important to understand that just doing things that benefit you may not always be the best choice. It is possible to do things so that everyone benefits equally and their happiness is your happiness.


“Life isn’t just doing things for yourself. It’s possible to live in such a way that other people’s happiness makes you happy too.”

Asuna (Asuna Yuuki)

3. I will fight until the day I see you again

It was Aincrad where Kirito first discovered the love of his life, and he would do anything to protect her.


“No matter what my heart will be forever yours and I will fight until the day I see you again.”

– Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)

2. It’s impossible

I know there are a few better quotes which could have taken spot two… I felt that this was where it belonged in my hand-picked quotes. It’s very true and it’s something I regularly think about!


“It’s impossible to work hard for something you don’t enjoy.”

Silica (Keiko Ayano)

1. All you can do is believe and accept

I felt that this was possibly one of the absolute best quotes that anyone could focus on from Sword Art Online.

I am sure we have all been in situations where we’ve questioned who someone really is. Or mentioned it in passing to mutual friends who do not understand the issue. Everyone is perceived differently by everyone.


“It is pointless to question who someone really is. All you can do is believe and accept. Because the way you perceive someone is their true identity.”

– Kirito (Kirigaya Kazuto)
