Great Sword or greatsword is a type of heavy sword used in YGGDRASIL and the New World.


Ainz Ooal Gown beginning his career as an adventurer in the Re-Estize Kingdom utilized two great swords as his main weapons. Climb uses one during his training; swinging it 500 times in a controlled manner.


Great Swords are classed as swords that are over-sized and the same size as the user.


Great Swords are noted to be weapons for hacking not slashing. They were typically not one-handed weapons, hacking a being like an ogre using a single hand would be difficult.[1] The weight of one would be even too much for a regular soldier.[2]


  • Great Swords are related to long swords.
  • Momon is regarded as a special warrior who was able to use slashing attacks with greatswords.
