Spoiler Alert 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. If you're not currently up-to-date with the main source material in the official books, do consider staying away from the page for non-spoiler sake until you actually read it first ahead of time.

Greater Doppelgänger (上位二重の影) is a race of higher-tier shapeshifters from YGGDRASIL.


Unlike a basic doppelgänger, a Greater Doppelgänger has four fingers on each hand.


Greater Doppelgängers can imitate people of up to level 60 such as the members of Pleiades. However, unlike the NPCs like Pandora's Actor, they can only copy a person's abilities up to 90% of the original’s abilities. Pandora's Actor, on the other hand, is capable of transforming into people from Ainz Ooal Gown up to level 100, but 80% of the power output seems to be his limit.[1]

Reasonably so, the Greater Doppelgängers are powerful variants of doppelgängers with the power to copy the abilities of players and Custom NPCs.

Additionally, the abilities of these shapeshifters can fool the senses of even a level 100 player. There was a spell that could dispel the Greater Doppelgängers’ shapeshifting, using it to keep them from transforming again for a period of time due to its effect. They also have the ability to hide their amount of HP.[2]

As with all their kind, they employ a form of telepathy to imitate their targets, though are unable to extract information from superficial thoughts.[3]
