Spoiler Alert.PNG Spoiler Alert: WARNING! This page happens to contain a lot of heavy spoilers that are all originated from the Overlord Light Novel series written by the author Kugane Maruyama. 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.

Fighter (ファイター) is the generic term used to refer to the combatants in the Overlord series.[1] Besides being a job class name for some, individuals not belonging to the class can still be classified as one to some degree by having different roles elsewhere.


Apparently, individuals who have acquired a level or more in the Fighter class were always associated with a combination of warrior classes or with some magic caster classes. Fighters are viewed as either a warrior, magic caster, or a hybrid of both who fights offensively on the battlefield.

In the New World, such people were known to undergo physical training as warriors and be affiliated with several organizations. Some are known to have one of the following classes like Knight, Mercenary, Guardian, or other kinds to go along with the class of Fighter be it magic caster or warrior types.

Nonetheless, even without the Fighter class, there are people like Ainz Ooal Gown and Gagaran[2] who were still regarded as typical fighters themselves due to the various means they possessed or make usage of to befittingly called that classification.

For instance, Shalltear Bloodfallen was the Great Tomb of Nazarick's best one-on-one fighter due to her powers and abilities.[3] While so, specific people from the Roble Holy Kingdom with the Paladin class can be seen as what excellent fighters are comprised of literally.[4]

Nonetheless, any individuals with non-fighter classes are considered as a fighter in their own way as they happen to excel at other areas like ranged combat. A Monk like Halisha Ankara is one of the prime example among them.[5]
