This is a trope page for an RPG player who wakes up in the game he was playing. One problem is the race he chose to play as.

  • 24-Hour Armor: Not exactly. While he has taken his helmet off a few times, Arc is forced to keep his body hidden from view.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The manga shows an antagonist feeding two people, one of whom he was just groping a moment before, to some monsters he trains for The Empire, while the light novel doesn't.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Arc finds this out when his companion's mother has a practice match with him.
  • Berserk Button: Don't try to harm Arc's companions or you'll meet your demise.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Being a skeleton works for intimidation, but not for anything else.
  • Dem Bones: Arc has the appearance of a skeleton underneath his armor.
  • Godlike Gamer: As per the norm with a light novel Isekai genre, Arc was an exceptional gamer who had leveled up his gamer avatar to maximum.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Arc is definitely bigger than his dark elf companion, Arian, but there's nothing tiny about her.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Arc has one after healing an injury it had; said critter turns out to be a rare spirit animal.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: Arc Raratoia was an otaku gamer who one day fell asleep and woke up in the body of his online game avatar, which has the appearance of a Knight in Shining Armor on the surface and a skeleton underneath. He is substantially more powerful than other characters with endless grinding having pushed his level to a maximum of 255, which grants him Super Strength and an assortment of mystical powers. While he doesn't quite have a harem yet, he does encounter and help out a lot of girls on his adventures so he's getting there.
