One of the most famous Kirito costume could be a Coat of Midnight. This costume is a ‘last attack bonus item’ that you can get from Ilfang the Kobold Lord, the first floor boss in Aincrad. Despite being the first floor boss, Ilfang is really strong and even could kill at least 2 people, including the raid leader. And then, Kirito enters the rage mode and manage to kill it. He got the monster drop for the last attack bonus called Coat of Midnight.
Kirito gained the Coat of Midnight for the Last Attack bonus drop in the 1st Floor boss. As soon as wipe out of the boss, many of the raid party’s members talked about the problem of the Beta Testers having personal information regarding the boss, that had been considered to have triggered the death of the raid party’s leader, Diavel.
Fearing that this discrimination of Beta Testers would not end, Kirito announced that only only a few Beta Testers definitely had more knowledge and information than standard players and called this small category of people as Beaters to split up himself and others such as him from all other Beta Testers. Then he put on the coat before the raid party to show off his status for a Beater, thus getting all the hatred towards Beta Testers onto him self.
Right after this theatrical performance, he solely used the coat when ever he was outside of the city, as although remove it from prior to going into the city to cover his identity, since he’d turn out to be Sword Art Online’s most despised player.
