From black hole perturbation theory, quasi-normal modes (QNMs) in spherically symmetric AdS black hole spacetimes are usually studied with the Horowitz and Hubeny methods  by imposing the Dirichlet or vanishing energy flux boundary conditions. This method was constructed using the scalar perturbation case and box-like effective potentials, where the radial equation tends to go to infinity when the radial coordinate approaches infinity. These QNMs can be realized as a different set of solutions from those obtained by the barrier-like effective potentials. However, in some cases the existence of barrier-like effective potentials in AdS black hole spacetimes can be found. In these cases this means that we would obtain a new (original) set of QNMs by the purely ingoing and purely outgoing boundary conditions when the radial coordinate goes to the event horizon and infinity, respectively. Obtaining this set of QNMs in AdS black hole cases is the main focus of this paper.
