Well, going by the google definition, it is the action or practice of inflicting severe pain on someone as a punishment or to force them to do or say something, or for the pleasure of the person inflicting the pain

You know that Fairy guy? His so called duel with him was unfairy matched, and Kirito knew it, which is why he mocked him by giving him excalibur and turning on the pain meter to max. Both of which were unnecessary.

Reason why I ask this question is that Kirito blatantly tortured an obviously guilty party by bisecting him numerous times. Do you believe Kirito had every right to torture the guy?


That doesn't sound like punishment. More like revenge.

I'm sorry but what's your definition of "torture" and "punishment"

To me, both words don't go together. Torture is more for personal gain. For
example, rape or bullying. Punishment is something to better the individual.
Example, jail time.

Punishment is any sort of retributive action in exchange for an offense. If it is revenge, so be it.

It's better for someone horrible to not exist at all. The easiest way to seek revenge is to shoot them in one shot. No need to waste your time and energy torturing

But anyway, I believe in a God, so I'm sure the torturing will be done in hell and for all of eternity too

If you do something terrible like murder, rape or commit an act of terror then yeah, why not? You had no respect for other people's human rights so why should we repsect yours?

Also, Kirito torturing someone? Did I miss that episode or something? o.o

I do find a lot of people to be rather fucked up in their opinion on torture. They're a bad person so it's ok if I sink to their level is a common mentality I've seen. Seriously, I've seen people want to enact the worst of tortures (that I can't describe due to forum rules) on people just for existing.

As a punishment no, as a method of information retrieval yes.

While I don't think torture is a necessary or warranted punishment I do believe it may be needed to sometimes save lives. For instance, a kidnapper withholding information of where to find a kidnapped child or a bomber hiding locations of bombs. It's more necessity than punishment in those sorts of cases when it comes to protecting those innocents.

Yep, I have. if you mean where they're still inside Alfheim online and she's chained up. I can't remember Kirito torturing anyone though
