Lord Knights (王騎士) are elite insect warriors. Two of them guard Ainz Ooal Gown's personal apartment.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Lord Knights resemble Hercules beetles. Furthermore, they are nearly two meters tall and possessed solidly built bodies. Each beetle wears a loose-fitting surcoat of platinum.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Lord Knights are level 70 insect-type warriors. Although the Knights’ levels were only in their 70s, their defensive capabilities were unparalleled. Their endurance, magic resistance, and weapons-damage resistance make them troublesome even for level 100 players. They have compound eyes, which gives them a broad field of vision.[1]

Main Equipment[edit | edit source]

  • Glaive: Each glaive gives off a platinum aura of high-class enchantments.
  • Long Sword: A beautifully embellished long sword the size of a great sword.
  • Unknown Magic Item: A magic item that removes the need for sleep.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lord Knight's name and appearance originate from the Web Novel.
  • In the Light Novel, the Lord Knights were briefly mentioned as Cocytus' subordinates.[2]
  • The Lord Knights consider their duty as a great honor and heavenly experience.
