Manga or Manhwa where he can change into different characters from the game. I can remember that he usually uses the black-haired old man with cigarettes and there was this one time he changed into a martial artist character with white clothes. I forgot the plot but it's fantasy and all I can remember is the characters since that was long ago.

What do you do when the MMO you’ve run for 15 years comes to an end? Akira Ono didn’t get much of a choice — he woke up trapped inside the world of his own game in the body of his in-game character: the Demon Lord. With an outcast child as his sidekick, he tries his best to survive the cruel fantasy world of his own creation, prosecution from the good guys, and of course, the final boss.
