* AntiMagic: The SI took a full power blast from Zoicite, causing Zoicite to think him dead, and only got winded. Later, one of the Number Cyborgs shot him with a pure magic blast, and not only did it not do any good whatsoever, but he ''didn't even notice when it happened.''

** In addition, the more food, air, and water he intakes from magic-affected universes, the more magically-affected matter replaces his body mass. Eventually, he would become completely vulnerable to magic. (Though it takes about 7 years to completely replace a person's body mass with new material, so it would be very gradual.)
*** This point is made evident when Sailor Moon tries to heal the SI in the second SM arc. When she does, she's only healing the water in his body, which would be one of the first things to be replaced.

* AttackItsWeakPoint: one of the few ways that the SI has been able to survive so far is by going for the weak points of characters, be they emotional or physical.

* BreatherEpisode: The ''Anime/TenchiMuyo'' arcs tend to be this. They have Washu, supplies, friendly people who aren't trying to kill the SI, and more. In every other world (save for the unknown world skipped in the first volume) the SI has had to fight for his life.

* BrickJoke: In the first ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' arc, the SI and Luna have a discussion about how foolproof things tend to underestimate the tenacity of fools. The next (''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'') arc has one of the Numbers say that her strategy was foolproof, leading the SI to quote the earlier conversation.

* GlassCannon: The SI is capable of defeating and even killing his opponents, but [[ChunkySalsaRule one]] [[MadeOfPlasticine good]] [[OneHitPointWonder hit...]]
** Made especially evident in the second Sailor Moon arc, where it lists all his injuries sustained in the two fights he's had in that arc so far. Concussion, Four broken ribs, Two fractured ribs, Whiplash, Potential Spinal Compression, Minor Pulmonary Edema, and a Torn Rotator Cuff. This was all with the HEV suit and a helmet.

* ImprovisedWeapon: Part of the SI's charm is that, due to his [[GenreSavvy Genre Savvyness]], he can think outside the box and come up with nifty ideas that, while the other characters would probably never think of them, still fit perfectly within the various [[MagicAIsMagicA rules of magic.]] For a good example, see the "Facepalm," entry above.

*** [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Or, you know, they might be, considering who she is and what her powers are like...]]



** The entry under SlidingScaleOfRealisticVersusFantastic provides more details on precisely why this is.



* MagicAIsMagicA: When a person or object goes dimension hopping, it retains the properties it had in its home universe. For example, slapstick violence leaves the SI seriously hurt. On the other hand, a magical blast can't harm him because magic doesn't exist in his world, although the shrapnel and other secondary effects of a magical blast ''would'' harm him. To put this in ''Nanoha'' terms, Signum could severely injure him regardless, while he'd be immune to the Starlight Breaker.
** A simpler example, for those who are not familiar with Nanoha terms: At one point, the SI gets attacked with a blade made of pure magic. It doesn't do anything at all, and simply passes through him harmlessly. Shortly afterward, he gets punched in the head hard enough to give him skull fractures, knocking him out.
* MagicSkirt: The SI and Luna, to their dismay, find out that this doesn't necessarily apply in the Ranma world...
** They are going up against Happosai at the time, and knowing that this is possibly one of ''the'' most perverted individuals in ''any'' universe, he might have come up with a way to prevent the "Magic Skirt."

* MegatonPunch: The SI is very worried about being hit by one of these because his body is still subject to real-world physics even when he's in a world that runs on the RuleOfFunny.
** The point is driven home repeatedly, though none quite as pointed as when he points out that one of Mokoto's attacks vaporized a tree, and would have reduced him to a fine red mist in the second Hina arc. He openly compares it to a hand grenade to Kitsune during the first arc, albeit with very broken Japanese.

* MutilationConga: Not as severe as some on that page, but accumulates injuries and illnesses in virtually every world and is beaten like a piece of meat by the time the loop starts to repeat. Played for drama and laughs almost at the same time.
** Things go ''much'' worse for the SI in the second loop; by about half way through he's suffered what would be fatal injuries if not for his healing nanites. And to make maters worse, the action he's gone through has left him unable to eat healthily, leaving him malnourished enough that those same nanites that saved his life are begining to cause his kidneys to fail. This time, it is '''not''' played for laughs.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The SI lands in the middle of a ''Sailor Moon'' episode, and prevents the event that causes Sailor Moon's BigDamnHeroes moment. Thus, he and Sailor Mars are left to fight the MonsterOfTheWeek without Sailor Moon's help. (For those unfamiliar with the franchise, Sailor Moon is more or less the only cast member that can purify possessed people. While others can kill, she is the healer, a skill noted in the second Sailor Moon arc... And the monster being fought was a possessed person, specifically, Rei's Grandfather.)
** SpannerInTheWorks: On the other hand, the SI kills Zoicite, something that wouldn't happen for a while without his appearance.

* NonHumanSidekick: He accidentally pulls [[Anime/SailorMoon Luna]] with him into the ''Ranma'' universe. She's now pretty desperate to return home.

Something like "Anime/ExcelSaga" is a 1. ''Manga/LoveHina'' is probably a 3. ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is somewhere between 4 and 5. ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is around a 6 or 7 RealLife is a 9. ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' and ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' would be 10s. Luna has a FreakOut when the possibility they will end up in Berserk hits her.
** To be more specific, those closer to "One" on the scale are ones along the lines of "Loony Tunes," where you can survive being blown up by dynamite, or falling off a cliff, and then walking away five minutes later. It steadily decreases in survivability while increasing in seriousness the closer you get to "Ten," which is any universe that is actively trying to kill you, including ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'', ''Manga/{{Hellsing}},'' Horror Movies, and the recently confirmed [[spoiler:''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'']].
** Love Hina is a 3 because of all the slapstick comedy. ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is at around a 4 or 5, so people can get blown up but walk out with nothing more than scratches and a few soot burns. ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is a place where people can get hurt, but many injuries and wounds are taken for granted and aren't very serious, marking it between 6 or 7. RealLife is...

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: subverted, in that the SI is so used to the appearances of everyone from the ''shows and manga,'' that in the second Sailor Moon arc, he is unable to recognize Ami without her unusually hued hair. Also lampshaded by Luna.

** The Magical Sword gathered from Nanoha's universe in the first Nanoha arc, when given to Makoto, acts similar to the Beam Saber from SuperSmashBrothers.

*** Shampoo, in the chapter after that, loses much of her attitude towards the SI when he explains ''exactly'' what he has been going through, and she realizes that this weak, flabby, slow, non-martial artist, outsider ''male'' has kept it together in a situation where she would have given up a long time ago.

** The [[ActionSurvivor SI definitely fits]] the ClassicalAntiHero archetype. Though at the same time, from the perspective of some of the world's he's visited (especially Anime/SailorMoon ), he could count as a [[PragmaticAntiHero Type 3]] or even [[UnscrupulousHero Type 4]] [[SlidingScaleOfAntiHeroes Anti-Hero]], considering he's a [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative]] DangerouslyGenreSavvy GoodIsNotSoft CombatPragmatist who's willing to ShootTheDog if necessary.

Added DiffLines:

* LikeRealityUnlessNoted: As with many other [[SelfInsert Self Inserts]], the only thing separating the protagonist's original universe from our own reality is the fact that interdimensional travel is possible to and from it. [[{{deconstruction}} Unlike most]], the ways in which this differs from the places visited by the protagonist are very heavily emphasized. It also [[MadeOfPlasticine applies to his own biology even in other dimensions]].

* MadeOfPlasticine: The protagonist and ''only'' the protagonist for reasons similar to MagicAIsMagicA: Rather than assuming that it's caused by some difference in the laws of physics like most fanfics would, this one chooses to treat MadeOfIron as ''biological'' as part of its nature as a {{Deconstruction}}, effectively making the protagonist a different, much more fragile species than the native humans.
* MadeOfIron: ''Everyone else'' in comparison.



* PervertRevengeMode: A ''physical law'' in the worlds that the SI ends up in. And since the SI frequently ends up in the beds of {{Tsundere}}s and doesn't have the kind of protection that normal anime males do from {{Megaton Punch}}es...well, it gets crazy.
** The SI explains it to Kitsune and Mokoto in the second ''Love Hina'' arc as an element of the RuleOfFunny: Which is funnier from an outsider's point of view: Keitaro wandering into the bathhouse to clean it and nothing going wrong, or there being girls there who chase him around and kick his ass?

* AlwaysABiggerFish: In the second RanmaOneHalf arc, Luna is nearly ''in tears'' due to this. She has recently discovered that she's faster and stronger than most humans... but she just went up against [[Anime/SailorMoon a Dark General]] and [[RanmaOneHalf Happosai]], both of whom are considered top-tier opponents.

** The SI is dying of kidney failure (slowly) due to the nanites, and needs to keep drinking, as of the second ''RanmaOneHalf'' arc. What does he use? Ancient chinese remedy? Martial arts kidney-boosting move? Nope, just drinking Gatorade.

*** In the second ''RanmaOneHalf'' arc, Happosai tries to use a massive intimidation technique that results in him appearing to grow fifty feet tall. Everyone in the SI's group starts to freak out... except for the SI, who simply sees the little old man standing in a funny position and not moving, as he is incapable of being affected by the technique.

* RequiredSecondaryPowers: The SI's power suit can give him increased strength, but not the extra resilience required to use that strength. And the nanomachines Washu gave him may speed up his body's healing process, but it kicks his metabolism into overdrive, burning through loads of energy, nutrients, and water. Plus, at the rate the SI is being injured, those nanomachines can't keep up with filtering out the extra toxins in his bloodstream, leading to a near kidney failure in the second ''RanmaOneHalf'' arc. His reaction to learning this is [[OhCrap not a pleasant one.]]
