Nue (鵺) is some sort of hybrid monster found in YGGDRASIL.


Prior to his first confrontation with Hamsuke, Ainz Ooal Gown assumes that the Wise King of the Forest was a Nue based on the information he came across.[1]


Nue possesses the form of a monkey’s head, a raccoon’s body, the limbs of a tiger and a snake’s tail.


According to Ainz, he was unsure if such a monster like a Nue existed in YGGDRASIL and thus had very little information to go on.


  • The origin of this legendary creature dates back to Japanese folklore.
