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.

Items (Manga)

Various Magical Items

Items that are currently known in the universe of the Overlord series range to diverse paraphernalia, each with its own extraordinary abilities and different traits. This page shows a list of items found in both YGGDRASIL and the New World.


Items and armaments in YGGDRASIL were classified according to their data size. The greater the data, the higher the grade of the Item. Starting from the bottom, the classes were: Low, Medium, High, Top, Legacy, Relic, Legendary, and Divine. Trading magic items were usually done in the form of data crystals.[1]

However, the one and only type of item that is able to easily override the effects or powers of any of the previously mentioned classes are the World Items.[2] While so, magic items such as armor would not be destroyed unless they were targeted by specific spells. Also, metal was durable and highly resistant to pure energy attacks like lightning, flame, or ice. Hence, armor made from metal for starters was hard to destroy, since it had a high defense, but low HP.[3]

World Items

There were only two hundred of these items in YGGDRASIL. Even Guild weapons and Divine-class weapons couldn’t match them. World Items are the most powerful items admired and feared by players in the game. Given their rule-bending powers, in addition to the slim chance of finding them, a player who is lucky enough to come into possession of even just one of the World Items could easily shake the game's power balance. Basically, they are the "Wild card" or the "Joker card" of YGGDRASIL.[4]

World Champion Items

The World Champion was a special class granted only to the victor of the official martial tournament. Only a few had managed to obtain the World Champion class of which there were only nine in YGGDRASIL. As for the prize, the champion was given one piece of special equipment by the administrator. The power of this prized equipment surpassed Divine Class items, rivaling even Guild weapons. Of course, since it was a reward for the winner of the tournament, only the World Champion could equip it. However, under certain situations, one may put them on by casting a spell like "Perfect Warrior," as seen in Ainz's fight with Shalltear.[5]

Guild Weapons

YGGDRASIL's weapons — Guild Weapons and a few others aside — possessed a data capacity that was determined by the value of the materials used in their construction and the skill of their maker. This data capacity limited the number of data crystals which could be added to it. Thus, rarer metals are allowed for the creation of a correspondingly more powerful guild weapon.[6]

Divine Class Items

YGGDRASIL magic items were created from embedding computer data crystals. For instance, player-made items in the game could have their abilities changed by using data crystals.[7]

However, with the performance of computer data crystals dropped by monsters to be random, it was necessary to have several “extremely rare loot” computer data crystals just to be able to create a Divine class item. Not only that, if you wanted these computer data crystals to be embedded into a container—such as a sword-type weapon—it had to be a weapon forged from ultra-rare metal for it to be possible.[8]

As such, even for level 100 players, it was common not to have a single Divine class item. Besides questing for them or making them, another method of obtaining Divine Class Items was through the gacha system, a lottery system that lets players obtain these rare items within a limited time.[9]

Legendary Class Items

Relic Class Items

Legacy Class Items

Top Class Items

High Class Items

Middle Class Items

Low Class Items

Artifact Class Items

Artifacts are not related to specific ranks. It just means they are items with fixed data and stats created by the game developers. Therefore, artifacts with low rank to high rank powers can exist. Dropped artifacts cannot have its original name be changed or customized by players unlike most items in the game.[10] Nonetheless, artifacts are regarded to be the highest class of magic items out there excluding World Items.[11]

In the Web Novel, by the context of the New World, artifacts were the names of top-class magic items and is treated almost similarly to the YGGDRASIL standard. It was impossible to create them via human hands, and could not be made normally except by existences like gods, high-rank dragons, demons, and angels. The magic power exuding from an artifact was said to be huge. According to one legend, they were items that could even bring one back from the dead.[12]

Unknown Class Items

Known New World Items

Within the New World, there are magical and legendary items that originated from YGGDRASIL, such as Nigun's Sealing Crystal and Lakyus's legendary weapon. However, there were also unique, New World items created with either Wild Magic[14] or Runecraft[15] which cannot be compared to the value of YGGDRASIL items.[16]

Moreover, some magic items have racial limitations on who can use them, or sometimes, the limitation is unique to the item type. For instance, to use a scroll, one needs to have mastery over the magic system it comes from, or otherwise, it will not be able to work. Fortunately, this setback can be bypass if a New World inhabitant possesses a certain Talent to get around it.[17]


  • A few items listed here on this page are not only originally from the Light Novel, but also from the Web Novel.
  • Some items from the Web Novel were adapted into the Light Novel.
  • In YGGDRASIL, there were stories of how a simple magic item averted a total party kill.[18]
  • There are nearly an infinite variety of original magic items produced by players.
  • Ainz had once heard that half the market price of magic items came from the ingredients it was made with.[19]
  • Cash Items are shown to be unrepresented in the lowest to the highest ranking of items under YGGDRASIL's standard.
  • Players need to use the console to bring up items, but there is no time to do so during a battle. However, it is possible to overcome that setback by using a cash item as shown in Ainz's duel with Shalltear.
  • According to Fluder Paradyne, one must know a related spell in order to make a magic item. For instance, one must know the [Fireball] spell to make a flaming weapon.[20]
  • Items placed in special sealed containers like an Item Box cannot be found by the use of high-tier divination spells.[21]
  • Equipped magic items added their abilities to the wearers and had the same resistance as them.[22]
  • In YGGDRASIL ordinarily, players could only equip their avatars with one ring on each hand. Though with a Cash Item they could put rings on all fingers, but would only be able to use two of them at a item. However in the New World, the natives have no such restriction.[23]
