Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert: WARNING! This page happens to contain a lot of heavy spoilers that are all originated from the Overlord author, Kugane Maruyama and his collection of written works. Anime-only watchers and Manga-only readers, please take some time off to reflect it over for a bit before choosing to expose yourself on reading the information below recklessly.

Corpse Guardian (屍の守護者) is an undead summon of Ainz Ooal Gown in Mass for the Dead.


A hulking undead that seems to be a fusion of multiple skeletons. Its upper torso is comprised of several rib cages and six skull heads. On its right shoulder, it had a spiked ossified pauldron. Its upper limbs are asymmetrical as the right hand is skinny while the left is a massive four-fingered claw with a nail impaled at the center. The Corpse Guardian wears a tattered robe, that exposes his upper torso, while the bottom part is covered with multiple chains.


Corpse Guardian displays very little personality and mostly responds in groans. However, this appearance bellies his level of intelligence and is very loyal to Momonga. Willing to do the dirtiest tasks for his master and Nazarick.


Momonga hearing from a report that Cocytus is seeking to break through his limits and level with the aid of Prismatic Crystals. Knowing that it will be difficult for Cocytus to fight with worthy opponents, Momonga secretly prepares to play a role in holding a competition to raise Nazarick's overall strength.

In an effort to strengthen Cocytus, who has been working with Demiurge to enhance his powers through Prismatic Crystals to break through the level cap, it was believed that he needed combat experience to complete the procedure. Thus Momonga created the Nazarick Fighting Tournament for this purpose. For the Nazarick Fighting Tournament, Momonga summons Corpse Guardian to act as a worthy opponent for the participants. The undead's identity is unrevealed in the first round of the tournment, serving as the wild card of the event. By the time of the second round, he faces off against Demiurge and his three Evil Lords and single-handedly defeats them.

Corpse Guardian faces off against Cocytus and the Pleiades in the final round and is defeated in personal combat by the Floor Guardian. After being restored by his master, Corpse Guardian demanded to be assigned a new task.[1]
