The Arcadius is the designation for the special ryder, or rather, a series of ryders piloted by Veniczar S. Arcadius and other Prototypes. It is visually similar to the Nightmare, and was possibly based on the Nightmare's design as an attempt to replicate the formidable Ryuvian Ryder. While far weaker then its Ryuvian counterpart, it is still an impressive combatant, surpassing even the PACT Elite. The Arcadius first appeared at the Second Battle of Helion.
