Note :-
  • The base stats given above aren't Ryutarou's current stats, as the last time the author provided stats for him in the Web Novel was before the Haltina's Labyrinth trial.

Weapons & Equipment

  • Twin Gauntlets - Ryutarou's primary weapons. Originally a from the Heiligh Kingdom, they had the power to produce shockwaves when used for combat. They were upgraded by Hajime after clearing the Haltina Labyrinth in the Sea of Trees. They could oscillate at a very high frequency, thus multiplying their destructive power. There were also enchanted with spatial magic to cause those oscillations to spread into the surrounding area. That bigfoot hadn’t stood a chance.
    • Death Fist - it bypasses an enemy’s defenses and destroys their internal organs.
  • Aerodynamic-enchanted boots - It allows Ryutarou to walk mid-air.

Relationships

  • Suzu Taniguchi - Ryutarou's first girlfriend. The two of the become a couple one year after they and the other students return to Japan. She wishes to go with him to Tortus and spend their days there together helping Kouki and the people.
  • Kouki Amanogawa - Ryutarou's best friend. He tends to support Kouki in his decisions blindly without considering the consequences, like agreeing to Kouki's decision to save Tortus, while ignoring the warning of their teacher Aiko. Though after Kouki lost his way, and decided to blindly follow his misguided sense of justice, Ryutarou decided to take up the task to bring his friend back and give him a good pounding to bring him back to his senses.
  • Hajime Nagumo - Ryutarou initially thought little of Hajime because of his lazy attitude and weak spirit, which went against his own 'straight to the point' and 'hardworking' nature. He even went on to tell Kaori that she is wasting time on someone who is a failure. Even after his class arrived in Tortus, this fact didn't change for him. And similar to Kouki, he also easily accepted Hajime's supposed death after his fall. But later, after being rescued by Hajime from the attack of the demon Cattleya and her army of monsters and seeing his change, Ryutarou starts to both respect and fear his strength. Though he later starts to feel a kinship towards Hajime because he considers him as a pupil of "Sgt. Hartman" just like himself, because of the way how Hajime had trained the Haulia's.
  • Yue - Ryutarou is infatuated with Yue on first sight when she came to protect them in the Great Orcus Labyrinth, but didn't try to make any advances on her nor did he speak about it to others, because he knew that she loved Hajime and would reject him, and he didn't want to get on Hajime's bad side.

Trivia

  • Before being summoned to Tortus, Ryutarou's dream was to become a police officer.
  • In the Anime, Ryutarou gains a scar on the left side of his chin after he was summoned to Tortus.
