A Meal

This page shows a list of Food and Drink that exist in the Overlord series.


Cuisine of the World of 2138

Food and Drink are consumable items found in the World of 2138, YGGDRASIL, and the New World. While the purposes for these consumables differed in both realms, fundamentally they were used to supplement health.

In the case of the World of 2138, the price of food inevitably soared, and raw fruits and vegetables became luxury goods that ordinary people couldn't get their hands on. The best one could acquire was liquid-based food, multi-vitamins, and preserved food.

In YGGDRASIL there were statuses like hunger and thirst and could be alleviated by food and drink items.[1] For YGGDRASIL's food and drink items, Players used these comestibles to increase their basic stats for their avatars.[2] One needed specialized skills to make food. It was only to be expected since food and drink could grant special bonuses when consumed. In other words, if one lacked the proper skills to perform a task, it would end in failure.

Not only that, but the New World also has its own set of foods and drinks. Their existence and purpose are a necessity for its inhabitants who require them for sustenance in their daily lives. According to some chefs from YGGDRASIL, the quality of some foodstuffs in the New World appears to be lacking compared to the game world.
