GA.png Non-Canon: REMINDER! This page is considered as among one of the many pure game contents found exclusive in Mass for the Dead only. It includes the new standalone characters that had a first-time appearance in the game. Meanwhile, the old characters had a different role and fate than from the main storyline in the official books. For that reason, it has no connections to the canon story materials of Overlord Light Novel series. The content that you had read here are based on the Overlord mobile game.



NoImage Alert.png Judging from the current state of this page, there is no available image on the Overlord Fandom as of yet to help emphasize its appearance. Since it is lacking visuals, this article requires an image for the first time, the kind which should be high quality and distinguishable. Unknown Intruder, you could go out of your way to assist the Overlord Wiki by adding an image that came from any Overlord adaptation to it. It cannot be a fan-art or fan-made. You must upload the official ones visually drawn by the main producers of the light novel, manga and anime adaptations.


Melting Pot (強酸の坩堝 (メルティング・ポット) ) was a trap used by the Baharuth Empire in Mass for the Dead.

Description[edit | edit source]

The trap was laid out in the Quarry, north of the city of E-Rantel. When an army of ten thousand Chaos Beasts emerged from the depths of the earth, Jircniv Rune Farlord El Nix ordered Zero to lead several workers to lure most of the monsters to the quarry until reinforcements came. Zero followed his instructions to the letter leading Six Arms and the workers: Foresight, Heavy Masher, Tenmu, and Dragon Hunt. When the imperial knights came to the quarry, Zero noticed that the knights refused to come forward and join the fight. Knowing something was wrong, he ordered Six Arms to get out of the quarry. The trap was then activated and the Chaos Beasts and workers fell into a deep pit filled with acid killing them.[1] However, later, the Melting Pot was revealed to be not very effective to Chaos Beasts as a few hundred of them managed to climb out and resume their heading towards the city. [2]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

A deep pit that contained Slime acid.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

The trap was laid out beneath the earth of the rock quarry, and could be triggered through an explosion, releasing the ground to the acid filled pool below. The acid is strong enough to melt human and Chaos Beasts to liquid.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The trap may have been part of Sophie Noia's research in utilizing slimes for practical applications.
  • After the acid in the crucible had dissolved all its victims, the mess seemed to have converted into sand.
  • It is unknown as to why the melting pot only worked partially in dissolving some but not all Chaos Beasts. Sophie under the authority of the E-Rantel Magic Research Institute went to investigate the cause of the decreased potency of the slimes' acid and found something odd in their composition.[3]
