"That sounds like what you would build. Like I said, mine has paper armor, high speed and high firepower. I even dumped my radar, relying on my eyes alone, to move faster."
- Nishikienrai talking about his playstyle in a different DMMO-RPG

Nishikienrai (弐式炎雷) is a guild member of Ainz Ooal Gown and regarded as one of the Forty-One Supreme Beings by the NPCs of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. He is the creator of Narberal Gamma.


Nishikienrai was described in one word: ninja. He wore the stereotypical black ninja outfit paired with a weird mask and two swords at his waist.


Nishikienrai is easygoing and friendly to his guildmates. He is somewhat of a daredevil and is confident in his skills. At the same time, he is also considered to be adventurous when venturing into a territory with high-level monsters. For Nishikienrai, he happens to enjoy the thrill of battle, despite knowing his defense is low.


During his time in YGGDRASIL, Nishikienrai joined Nine's Own Goal and was one of the earliest clan members in it. When it got disbanded by clan master Touch Me, he would participate in the founding of a new guild alongside former clansmen, ending up to be one of the 27 members to have become part of Ainz Ooal Gown. He was part of Momonga's Party assigned by Punitto Moe who helped play a role in successfully conquering the Great Tomb of Nazarick.

Afterward, he went on to create his NPC known as Narberal Gamma while staying in Nazarick. In the beginning, he didn't put much detail to his avatar and thus, making it appear smooth and featureless. Only a few of his guild members had seen Nishikienrai‘s real body under his ninja-clothes. He discovered an unexplored dungeon known as the Great Tomb of Nazarick and informed this to his clan members during their meeting.

When Ainz thought of past battles alongside his guild members, he recognized on the fact that Nishikienrai was one of them. He recalled that Nishikienrai was the one who is in possession of the twin kodachis named Amaterasu & Tsukuyomi as well as boasting the highest attack power in the guild.[1]

Abilities and Powers

It is known that Nishikienrai was the best member of Ainz Ooal Gown in dealing overall physical damage. As he concentrated his character build on stealth and damage dealing, his defense ability was very low. In addition, when Nishikienrai used his stealth abilities, he is capable of delivering a single blow whose power could outstrip even Warrior Takemikazuchi's. Though Nishikienrai is not good as a pure scouting-type character, he was able to do reconnaissance and no stealth specialized character had ever evaded his eyes.[5]

In the Web Novel, Ainz noted that since Nishikienrai is a half-golem, he had incredible strength. Among the forty-one guild members, the physical damage caused by a single sweep of his greatsword was without peer.[6]

However it turn out just to be only hot water, causing Nishikienrai to suffer damage to his game avatar.[10]


  • (To Punitto Moe): "Policeman-san, you've made a fatal mistake, All you need to do is silently approach a Tuveg and relieve him of his head in one strike. That way you won't alert his friends as well."
  • (To Punitto Moe): "Yaa, you see, it's child's play for me to take someone out from behind in one blow. That was how I delved into the depths of the swamp. While there were some worm-like monsters which used vibrations to navigate, I'm pretty sure I can sneak myself past their detection ability."
  • (To Punitto Moe): "Ah, don't you know? It's just a simple sneak attack. There's a damage multiplier for backstabbing people. My defense is rubbish and I'll die if I get found, but I love that thrill. I've always liked the glass cannon, high speed sort of character. You could say that it's my dream build."
  • (To Warrior Takemikazuchi): "Ohhh! The Bright King Combo? It's certainly possible, no it's definitely possible, Take-yan!"
  • (To Amanomahitotsu): "Just play Aberage instead lmao."
