To every Anime-only watchers and Manga-only reader out there viewing this warning, please mindfully consider your decision first before choosing to expose yourself on reading the information below.

Charisma (カリスマ) is a job class that hailed originally from the New World. However, other people can be recognized as having Charisma even without possessing the class.


People with the Charisma class are apparently known to be skilled oral speakers and have good speeches to proclaim to their audience. Charisma were what befits leaders with or without positions like Commander, Emperor, and Evangelist. They are capable of feats such as attracting a crowd, uniting many people, unifying a group, and so on to join together under their leadership. Even Jircniv lay claim to that notion by saying Ainz Ooal Gown was someone with the charisma befitting that of a king.[1]

Known Charismas

Abilities and Powers

Leaders are known to exude a charismatic attitude that compels people to develop a sense of devotion in them. Through Charisma, they have managed to garner others to develop loyalty and follow their lead. They are respected by the people who are associated with them. According to Ainz, nobody will follow a person who stands at the head of an organization if they don’t have charisma.[6]

For instance, Jircniv was confident that he could win his counterparts over to his side by using his charisma. It was considered to be the specialty of the noble class.[7] In a way, one can attempt to sway people to their side as allies they made with their own charisma.[8] In the Web Novel, charisma was what defined one's ability to rule.[9] Additionally it was exuded by those that can nearly dissolve hostility and vigilance.[10]

From the nobles' point of view, it is not entirely out of reach for a commoner to become a noble as long as they possessed enough charisma and power.[11]
