Kirito and Asuna were discussing whether there was an upper limit for damage that could be taken in Sword Art Online, as traditional Role Playing Games (RPGs) would have a maximum limit of 9,999 damage points. During the discussion, Kirito mentioned a number of different methods to increase the amount of damage that can be dealt at once, with the help of numerous players. However, when Asuna asked about herself and Kirito responded that her help would not be needed, Asuna stepped on his fifth toe and made him feel as if he had suffered 99,999 points of damage.
