"The Wise King of the Forest is a monster capable of using magic, possessing incredible power. It lives deep in the forest, so there are few eyewitness reports, but its existence has been around for quite a long while. Some even say it is a several hundred years old four-legged silverish, white beast with a snake-like tail."
— A description of Hamsuke.

Hamsuke (ハムスケ) is a giant hamster that lives in the southern part of the Great Forest of Tob and becomes Momon's pet, as well as a member of Darkness.


Hamsuke resembles a giant Djungarian hamster with a long snake tail. Six sigils dot her silvery fur.


Before being inducted into the Great Tomb of Nazarick, Hamsuke was very boastful and prideful of her ability and power as the 'Wise King'. However, since meeting Ainz and witnessing the power of the denizens of Nazarick, she has seen how vastly inferior she is in comparison to them. She accepts this and continues to swear loyalty to Ainz, willing to do anything to please her master and earn her keep. One of her wishes is to find a mate, as she believes it's her sacred duty to continue her noble species. She usually speaks in a syntax opposite of the common vernacular, often beginning a sentence with the object and ending with the subject.


From the information, Ainz gathered in Carne Village, the "Wise King of the Forest" is a monster capable of using magic. It is believed to have lived for several centuries and possesses incredible power. Based on a few witnesses, it is an old four-legged silverish, white beast with a snake-like tail. Its territory was formerly the southern part of the Tob Forest. It is regarded with respect and praise by the villagers of Carne Village as their protector, for its presence keeps the other monsters in the forests from venturing too close.

Upon meeting the creature, Ainz discovered it to be a giant hamster. From his conversations with the 'Wise King', it is learned that the hamster has been living a solitary life for many years, as it was unable to find any of its kind. Apparently, according to Evileye, the legend of the Wise King living in the Tob Forest has been around for at least two hundred years.

Hamsuke further testified that she received her title in the past when a band of adventurers trespassed in her territory. She slaughtered the majority of the party, save for one, when he addressed her as the Wise King of the Forest. Feeling generous, Hamsuke spared that warrior and that warrior alone because she thought the name sounded quite impressive. Though according to Ainz, he believes that the warrior may have exaggerated the details of the hamster.


The Dark Warrior Arc

Main article: The Dark Warrior Arc

The Wise King of the Forest is first discovered by Aura when Ainz orders her to track and lure it out. Under the effects of the dark elf's breath, she rushes towards Ainz and engages him in battle. Seeing that the swordsman before her is capable of keeping up with her, the Wise King praises him as a skilled warrior. However, this only earns Ainz's disappointment and prompts him to drop the facade and activate Despair Aura I, causing the Wise King to immediately surrender. Given a choice between death and servitude, the Wise King chooses the latter without hesitation. She is then renamed 'Hamsuke' after this defeat.[1]

After Ainz presents his success in taming the famed Wise King, Hamsuke accompanies the adventurers back to E-Rantel. While the Swords of Darkness and Nfirea Bareare head to Lizzie's shop, Ainz and Narberal take Hamsuke to the Adventurer's Guild to have him registered as Ainz's mount. On their way to reunite with the others, the trio cross paths with Lizzie Bareare who introduces herself. She guides them to her home, only for the group to discover the dead bodies of the Swords of Darkness and the kidnapping of Lizzie's grandson.

Hamsuke aides in the rescue of Nfirea by transporting Ainz and Narberal to the E-Rantel Cemetery, where a mob of undead are nearly overwhelming the guards stationed there. After Ainz dispatches the undead at the gate, she and Narberal head into the cemetery. Hamsuke is summarily left behind, but nevertheless, the devoted hamster follows. Narberal proceeds to lift the hamster with her magic to levitate both of them above the undead mob that are attracted to the hamster's life presence.

Ainz has Hamsuke stay out of the duration of the battle. Once the conflict with the Zurrernorn ends, Hamsuke then witnesses the true appearance of her master. Quickly adapting to the situation, she accepts his appearance and is gifted one of the spoils of the battle: the Orb of Death.[2]

When the Floor Guardians arrive, Pinison disturbs them, so Hamsuke takes her to the side to keep her from getting killed. She and the dryad watch the battle between the Guardians and the treant from a distance.[4]

Hamsuke meets Kyouhukou, who gives her one of his minions to show her the way. Upon meeting the four, all the females are too scared and disgusted by cockroach to get close to her. The situation escalates due to the females threatening Hamsuke with death if she gets any closer, causing her to run away from them. Running for her life, Hamsuke inadvertently runs into Ainz and Narberal, who are looking for her.[5]

She taunts the three elves if they want to fight her, but is confused when she sees the three elves repeatedly kicking their master's corpse, while wondering if this is their way of mourning for him. She decides to leave them to her master and continue her training with the lizardmen.[6]

The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc

Main article: The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc

After E-Rantel has been conquered, Hamsuke is given her own place to stay within the city. She is visited by Ainz and still sleeping with the Death Knight wrapped around her tail, which Ainz figures out is the same one he assigned to train with her to learn martial arts together. Hamsuke is asked by Ainz if she knows about The Giant of the East and The Serpent of the West, but Hamsuke doesn't know them and it's the first time she has heard about them.

They talk about how she needs to be more vigilant and wary. They also discuss how she even got the name Wise King of the Forest in the first place. Once she explains how it came to be, Ainz learns the real truth and realizes that it was truly just a misnomer title. They also talk about the situation of finding more of her kind, which sadly has not been successful, but Ainz promises that as long she continues to work and serve him with her loyalty, he will find other members of her kind. She, alongside the Death Knight, continue their training.[7]

The Half Elf God-kin Arc

Main article: The Half Elf God-kin Arc

When measuring the strength of the captured Ankyloursus Lord, Aura Bella Fiora used Hamsuke as a reference for Ainz. In comparison Aura confessed that the old Hamsuke, before she was inducted into Nazarick, was weaker that the ankyloursus. However the hamster's current magic abilities and warrior skills made Aura conclude that the Wise King of the Forest would win without question against her new pet.[8]

Ainz (Isekai Quartet) NOTICE: The following section and subsequent subsections are considered NON-CANON to the Overlord Light Novels.

Mass for the Dead Arc

Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc

At the ruins of Carne Village, Ian Als Heim suspected that the Wise King of the Forest may have lost its influence as the master of its domains due to the infestation of the Chaos Beasts.[9] When the Sunlight Scripture and protagonist's party entered the forest to search for a Crack, they believed that the legendary beast may have been killed. Even when the united investigation team entered the beast's territory there was no sign of it. Eventually they managed to locate it thanks to Mare Bello Fiore dragging it out of hiding. The Wise King then attacked them, though Aura Bella Fiora defeated it in single combat and tame the beast. After a brief interrogation, the Wise King explained that when the Crack appeared north of her territory, a might Chaos Beasts emerged and wounded her forcing her to flee to the fringes. Without her presence monsters native to the forest then fled to the southern part of the forest and straight into conflict with the human village. Hamsuke was taken with them to guide the team to the Crack under duress.[10]

The hamster was given the name Hamsuke by the protagonist. While traveling with her new master, she saw how strong the protagonist and his allies were impressing her. After the investigation was finished Hamsuke was ordered to remain in the forest to monitor the Crack and to keep the area safe from Chaos Beasts.[11] While waiting in the forest for further orders from Aura, who returned to Nazarick, Hamsuke took the initiative to reclaim her territory from the Chaos Beasts that drove her out. To start, she went to enlist all the surviving uncontaminated goblins to her side. When Aura returned it greatly impressed her that her new pet accomplished this much and included in her forces with a Death Knight. Together the hamster, Aura and the rest managed to push the Chaos Beasts back and maintain as quarantine zone around the Crack.[12]

Hamsuke would later meet the protagonist again when the homunculus, and several Floor Guardians came to the forest again to look for the Legendary Tree.[13] And later when the protagonist, Soi and Surako came to the forest to collect herbs for an adventurer's quest. The hamster proved to be helpful in guiding the group to the herbs they needed.[14] The hamster would occasionally see its colleagues when the passed through the forest to get to the Great Lake.[15] Hamsuke's knowledge of the Tob Forest would be called upon to aid Nazarick in preparing various festivities like Christmas.[16] And even help entertain severs visitors from other worlds that were being housed by Nazarick.[17][18][19]

Hamsuke would participate on further missions like retrieving the Parent Tree.[20] During one night Hamsuke was haunted by something that was similar to a ghost in the forest causing her to be fearful of her own shadow when the incidents continued. After a trapped was set, disguised as a Harvest Festival, it was revealed that Hamsuke's stalker was a lonely fox-girl named Kyuko. Despite the psychological trauma by the fox, Hamsuke asked Aura to forgive and the two became friends and wardens of the forest.[21] On Hamsuke's first mission with Kyuko, she helped Aura and Yuri Alpha to make her delicious Natural Forest Chocolate by retrieving longevity nuts that were guarded by a Super Giant Sanitary Slime.[22]

When Aura and Shalltear came with a new mission from Nazarick to have Kyuko infiltrate E-Rantel with Shalltear as an adventurer, Hamsuke and her Death Knight companion took an interest in learning that E-Rantel had become a city that welcomed demi-humans. The two wanted to visit such a enlightened city. However Aura told them that having magical beasts and undead like them enter the city was not yet possible but believed the future held some opportunities. In the mean time the hamster helped her friend Kyuko to develop her background for "Ku the Adventurer" who was escorting a noble named Shall. Once preparations were done Hamsuke and the Death Knight were left to guard in the Tob Forest.[23]

When Shall brought the stranger Anne to the Tob Forest, Hamsuke, Kyuko and the other minions of Nazarick in the area retreated so as to not be discovered by the newcomer.[24]

Hamsuke and her friends, the Death Knight and Kyuko were again visited by Aura and Mare to invite them to the Halloween Festival to act as the "invaders" for the defense training part of the event. The hamster bore witness to Kyuko in her alter ego "Ku", fighting Shalltear in her "Shall" persona. Once the defense training was over Hamsuke move to the banquet part of the festival and enjoyed the new chocolate treats that were provided.[25]

When Darkness guided Evileye and Nfirea Bareare to the forest to seek of the Longevity Nuts to make a cure for an illness that was affecting the orphans of E-Rantel, Hamsuke came to greet them and acted as their guide to the tree which bore the fruit. The hamster aided the adventurers by fighting against the monsters and Chaos Beasts they were in their path. Once they were defeated, Hamsuke told Nfirea to decoct the seeds of the nut to make the cure as it would be more effective that way.[26]

For the upcoming Sorcerer Kingdom's National Foundation Ceremony Day, Aura extended an invitation to Hamsuke and Kyuko to celebrate the nation's founding. Hamsuke was wary of the invite as she had never been asked to come to Nazarick before and was worried that she was being brought to be punished. Aura though assured her it was not a punishment, though cautioned the hamster to not to do any slip ups else she would be in danger of being killed.[27]

Hamsuke and her party from the forest arrived at Fake Nazarick on the date of the event. When the representatives from the Great Lake arrived, the hamster introduced them to Kyuko and the Death Knight. At the commemoration ceremony, Hamsuke and her group were addressed by Momonga himself for their defense of the forest. Afterwards she attended the banquet portion, though was kept nervous by the intense gaze of CZ2128 Delta who wanted to cuddle her and her fox friend. The hamster would be called to join the dancing on the ball and even though she had no experience with the activity found it enjoyable. At the last part of the event Hamsuke admired the newly unveiled Sorcerer King Momonga Statue before returning to the Tob Forest.[28]

Hamsuke would find her forest host to e-summoned visitors from another world and briefly say hello to one of them after he fought Pandora's Actor.[29]

Albedo would pay a visit to the Tob Forest seeking fiber plant samples to develop a sustainable line of fabrics for the idol project. To help her collect the resources she acquired the aid of Hamsuke, Kyuko and the Death Knight who protected the forest. When Aura suggested that they also should explore fur from non-contaminated beasts, as an alternative, Hamsuke noticed eyes were on her much to her dismay. In addition she helped to subdue a strong slime that would be taken to the E-Rantel Magic Research Institute as compensation for the organization in proving them a list of suitable fiber plants.[30]

Hamsuke and her friends would receive another visit from Nazarick, composed of the protagonist, Slimeko, Aura and Mare. The group stopped by the Tob Forest on their way to the Great Lake to receive aquatic combat training from the lizardmen for an upcoming scouting mission. At Kyuko's insistence the dark elves showed the forest sentinels their swimsuits before assisting them in culling the Chaos Beasts form the Crack in the forest.[31]

During a routine patrol of the Crack, the phenomenon suddenly began releasing a wave of miasma through the forest. After it dissipated, a horde of Chaos Beasts were revealed. Hamsuke, Kyuko and the Death Knight were outnumbered and forced to retreat to the edges of the forest where they encountered a team of Nazarick composed of the dark elf Floor Guardians, the protagonist, Slimeko and a new visitor from beyond the Crack. The team were able to get the Chaos Beasts under control after they defeated the mastermind of the plot.[32]

During Aura’s usual visit to the forest, Hamsuke and her friends received a visit from the members of Darkness. The adventurer team came to the forest to retrieve a Longevity Nut as a prize for the upcoming E-Rantel’s Festival. Aura who came earlier had retrieved it for the adventurers and gave it to the protagonist. After learning some more details about the festival in the fortress city, where demi-humans and humans would be indistinguishable from each other side to wearing costumes, the hamster wanted to participate. However she was dissuaded by Kyuko as humans in the city were still Hm getting used to coexisting with demi-humans. A magical beast at the festivities would cause an uproar. To cheer her up, Aura opened the future possibility where humans would be more tolerant for magical beasts in their midst next time.[33]

Hamsuke and Kyuko would detect a human camping out in the forest. The duo spied on her from afar, not showing themselves. However the stranger noticed them and called them to reveal themselves. When asked what were they, Hamsuke stated that was their line and demanded to know what the human was doing in the forest. After learning that she had wandered into the forest looking for a way out, Hamsuke and Kyuko discussed what their course of action should be. Normally they were to avoid being seen or interacting with strangers but the situation was unexpected.

Even Hamsuke admitted that the human was suspicious, but decided that they needed to do their jobs and had the human come with them for questioning. Through their question the hamster was shocked to learn that the human girl came through a Crack. Given the situation, Kyuko believed that they needed to inform Aura, though Hamsuke was worried of the potential harm that could be brought to Nazarick. Aura as it so happened, came to them, in order to inform them to be on the look out for a specific human on behalf of a guest in Nazarick, which turned out to be their stranger. Upon seeing the girl, Aura decided to head back to inform the girl's friend and Momonga while Hamsuke and Kyuko stayed behind in the forest with the girl.

As they waited for Aura to return, Hamsuke treated the girl as a guest of the forest. Aura eventually returned with the girl's friend to have a reunion. When the girl informed the members of Nazarick that the tree on the east end of the forest grew more Longevity Nuts, Hamsuke readied her claws to hunt down the Super Giant Sanitary Slime that would arise after eating these nuts. Together with her friends they hunted and slayed the slime.[34]

In an emergency operation to create a new batch of luxurious chocolates for a noble's party, Hamsuke and Kyuko worked to collected the ripe nuts in the forest under the supervision of Aura, Cocytus and Shalltear.[35]

Before the protagonist and Slimeko went on their journey to the Dwarf Kingdom, the two along with Yuri and CZ paid Hamsuke a visit so she could update them on the status of the Crack in the forest. The hamster reported that everything was under control with the Chaos Beasts thanks to the help of the Death Knight and Kyuko.[36]

Sometime after the Calamity of Cracks, Hamsuke and Kyuko were paid a visit by Shall and Aura to take the latter on a mission to E-Rantel to attend another Halloween Festival as her adventurer identity Ku with Shall. Whilst the two women began to revise their cover stories and what they have been up to as their alter egos to provide to the public of E-Rantel, Hamsuke commented the complexity of the charade. Although Hamsuke was told that the deception being maintained by the three Greater Doppelgängers posing as the missing protagonist, Slimeko and Soi had it even harder than Shall and Ku. Since Ku was leaving for the city, Hamsuke promised to protect the forest while she was gone.[37]

Hamsuke and her friends were also given orders to heighten the security around the Crack in the forest in fear that more anomalies would emerge. Months later despite the extra security of undead no such events happened. The hamster and the others were later recruited by Aura to clear the abandoned village of Carne of any stray monsters that migrated from the outside as Nazarick intended to use it for Princess Renner Theiere Chardelon Ryle Vaiself staged refugee site using enchanted civilians captured from E-Rantel by Jaldabaoth. While stationed in the village, Hamsuke acted as the village's protector to give an explanation of how Renner and her followers survived for so long after disappearing.

Hamsuke played a part in faking the princess's death at her superiors orders, first by ravaging the bodies of the Re-Estize Kingdom's elite after they came to retrieve Renner and were poisoned. Thanks to Hamsuke's handiwork on the bodies, blame was cast on the Contaminated Beasts and Renner was able to leave behind her identity as a princess of the Re-Estize Kingdom and become a full member of the Sorcerer Kingdom.[38]

When Kyuko left for a mission to investigate a illegal gambling den, and was returning to the forest Hamsuke along with the Death Knight came rushing to pick her up. They found her with CZ looking at the moon at the edge of the forest.[39]

Sometime later, Hamsuke and Kyuko would receive a visit from the protagonist leading an expedition to the Azerlisia Mountains to revisit the Dwarf Kingdom to research dwarven bathing customs. Hamsuke did not understand the appeal, having never bathed in hot water before. However after hearing of his mental and physical benefits, the hamster grew interested and when she learned that Spa Resort Nazarick has such baths she wanted to visit it one day.[40]

Later Hamsuke and her forest friends were graced by a visit by Sorcerer King Momonga much to their surprise. The hamster seeing the ruler of Nazarick present with his delegation, was worried if their coming was herald to some big incident, but learned that it was part of a auspicious event to celebrate New Year's by viewing the "first sunrise" at the Azerlisia Mountains to pray. Hamsuke noted Shiro's presence who she heard about in the past, noting he was different from what she heard. Though after learning more about him as a trusted ally of Nazarick, she was readily happy to make his acquaintance. Hamsuke also participated in praising New Year.

Before Momonga departed with his delegation to the mountains, he gave Hamsuke and Kyuko some chocolate much to their delight as a New Year's gift.[41]

Abilities and Powers

Hamsuke's Sigils

Hamsuke's Sigils

Hamsuke's strength is that of a level 30 YGGDRASIL monster, which, compared to Nazarick standards, is very weak. The hamster is quite agile and fast capable of leaping at great heights and distances. Her fur, contrary to its soft appearance, can become as hard as steel to deflect incoming sword strikes.

While so, the scales on Hamsuke's snake tail are as tough as steel and she can use it efficiently like a whip, attacking enemies within a range of 20 meters. According to Maruyama, a single blow from her tail gives striking damage, as well as slash damage from her scales, and can instantly kill silver-ranked adventurers if they are hit by it.[42]

She also has eight sigils around her body that each allows her to use a different spell. While training with the lizardmen, Hamsuke is able to learn and perform a martial art skill of her own. Furthermore, Hamsuke's training is also an extension to using and equipping magical armors and weapons. With her recent training alongside the lizardmen, she is able to wear an armor now that serves to be a prototype.

Hamsuke is even hinted by Maruyama of being able to use the Orb of Death in battle, but only if there is an opponent worthy of Clementine’s level to make her do so anyways. If she doesn't face an adversary of that level, then the Orb of Death will not be used in a fight she is very likely to win.


  • Blindness: A spell that makes the user's opponent temporarily blind.
  • Charm Species: It is a 4th tier spell that works on any species. However, since Hamsuke's level as a wizard is practically zero, the spell's effect is not very hard to resist. She primarily uses it for hunting prey in the forest. In other words, normal animals have low mental resistance.

Martial Arts

  • Slashing Strike: A Martial art that allows the user to use a slash attack to their enemies

Main Equipment

  • Orb of Death: Hamsuke is also given a sentient magic item known as the Orb of Death, which has the power to supplement the power of the undead as well as allow the user to use multiple necromantic spells in a day. Hamsuke sometimes talks with the orb and asks it for its opinions.


Ainz Ooal Gown

Hamsuke was defeated by Momon, Ainz's alter-ego. Thus, she is subservient to him, acting as his loyal pet and steed. Despite Ainz's status as an undead giving Hamsuke a momentary scare, she quickly adapts and accepts his appearance. She is exceedingly loyal, willing to rush straight into a horde of hostile undead to be at her master's side, though she has difficulty understanding most of Ainz's plans and objectives.

Narberal Gamma

Narberal is Hamsuke's colleague and superior in the Darkness. Though Narberal constantly abuses her, Hamsuke admits she is inferior to her and shows no sign of sadness at her treatment. However, since their last visit to E-Rantel, the two have been working together, and have grown accustomed to one another to hold a decent civil conversation.


Upon their first encounter, Hamsuke is initially terrified of Albedo for murdering the adventurers accompanying the Darkness to confront Shalltear. Believing she will be next, she tries vainly to hide behind the hem of Ainz's cape. After the introductions are made between the two. Hamsuke accepts Albedo, albeit with hesitation, as her superior.

Aura Bella Fiora

Though Aura initially wanted to keep Hamsuke for herself, she relents and allows Ainz to tame the beast instead. Despite this, Aura is perhaps one of the more friendly Floor Guardians that has freely accepted Hamsuke into Nazarick. However, this is probably due to her previous intentions with Hamsuke, as unbeknownst to the hamster, Aura still covets to skin her soft hide.

Mare Bello Fiore

Hamsuke apparently, prior to encountering Zy'tl Q'ae, met Mare and approves of him.

Pinison Pol Perlia

Hamsuke is friendly with the newly inducted dryad. When she first meets Pinison, she tries to steer her away from being too vocal about her negative opinions on Ainz and the Floor Guardians, otherwise, they'd kill her. Having assimilated with the knowledge of the inhuman strength and power of the Floor Guardians, she shows no concern, unlike the dryad's frantic antics.


Hamsuke is one of the few non-insect monsters that unafraid of Kyouhukou. She shows no concern nor disgust when interacting with him or his subjects, even allowing one to ride her head to allow it to guide her when she gets lost on the second floor of Nazarick.

Death Knight

Hamsuke seems to develop some sort of friendly bond between herself and the Death Knight created by Ainz. He is considered to be Hamsuke's training partner who she spends times with. According to her, she seems to be getting along quite well with the Death Knight recently, which speaks proof of their friendship together. However, Hamsuke has stated that the Death Knight is just too quiet and she has to be the one who does all the talking even while they're having tea, it is exhausting to her.


  • In the Web Novel, Hamsuke doesn't exist.
  • According to Ainz, Hamsuke doesn't deserve the title of the Wise King of the Forest.
  • Everyone seems to think Hamsuke is a majestic beast that shows power and wisdom. Ainz can only see Hamsuke as a cute hamster and even feels ashamed for beating her up and riding on top of such a cute monster. This has also made him question his own aesthetic view since he is the only one who seems to think that Hamsuke is cute.
  • Originally, Aura wanted to keep Hamsuke as part of her beast collection and later wanted to skin her fur.
  • Due to the descriptions of its appearance by the locals, Ainz originally thought it was a Nue.
  • When thinking of a name for her, Hamsuke was the first thing that came to Ainz’s mind. However, he later regretted it, thinking that the name Hamsuke was actually quite lame, while Daifuku might have been a wittier name[2]. In the English dub, instead of Daifuku, Ainz briefly considered calling her Donut or Hamtaro.
  • Hamsuke was initially believed to be a demon by the New World inhabitants.
  • Currently, there are plans to upgrade Hamsuke's abilities with Aura's help.
  • Hamsuke might be a reference to Giant space hamsters, a race of large hamster-like monsters from the Spelljammer campaign setting in Dungeons and Dragons.
  • According to the Maruyama, he had an idea to write a story about Hamsuke's parent and it was suppose to be a creature with a total length of over 1 km that lived in the Great Rift of the Dwarf Kingdom.[43]


  • (To Ainz): "Th-that is so, Master. Your humble servant, Hamsuke, once again pledges her undying loyalty to you!"
  • (To Erya): "I can tell that you're weak just from a glance..."
  • (To Erya): "This king's name is Hamsuke! Go to the other world remembering the name of one who killed you! State your name as well!"
  • (To Erya): "It seems so, indeed...If it keeps on like this, I would win easily. Ah, please don't pay this king any heed. This king has never seen a human that could win against me."
  • (To Erya): "Hmm~ I was taught to keep a distance when unsure of an opponent's strength, but I have to fight as a warrior...I suppose it can't be helped."
  • (To Zaryusu): "Please watch Hamsuke become stronger for my lord! How long would it take for me to properly call myself a warrior? The Warrior Hamsuke."
