  • Reincarnation: Arthur was a king in his past life in a futuristic world, he incarnated into a medieval fantasy world after dying mysteriously in his bed.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Arthur develops this kind of dynamic with Elijah Knight, a teenager raised by Dwarves in the Kingdom of Darv. Arthur is a smooth talker, hyper confident and occasionally aggressive, while Elijah is more meek, clumsy, and easily embarrassed.
  • Stock Light-Novel Hero: Arthur was a king who died and got reincarnated in another world that was magical. He discovers the elemental Ki techniques practiced in his past life are similar to the Mana in the new world, except they can be manifested physically due to the surrounding ambient mana in this world. This allowed him to utilize his Ki knowledge to awaken his Mana core in the age of three, and make full use of his decades of sword fighting experience and ki arts trainings in this new life. He's also given a dragon beast will, along with a dragon bond early on, which makes him even closer to an Invincible Hero.
  • Tears of Joy: This happens a lot in this series:
    • When Art is able to talk to his parents for the first time since they assumed he died.
    • When Art shows Lilia a way to become a Mage.
    • When Twin Horn meets Art after they believed he was dead.
  • Younger Than They Look: You would think Art, Tess and the students around them were in their mid to late teens, but most are only 12.
