Overlord (死の支配者) is one of the high-tier heteromorphic races that players were able to pick in YGGDRASIL. It is the final form of the Elder Lich and Skeleton Mage, a powerful undead magic caster that pursues ultimate magic.


In YGGDRASIL, there were several types of monsters in the Overlord family:

Types of Overlord


Overlord is a strong magic caster with the appearance of a skeleton, devoid of both skin and flesh. It has a dark red light glowing inside the empty eye sockets of the skull and a dark halo-like object glimmering behind its head.


Overlord is a powerful undead with the capability of learning potent magic spells and using them. As a magic caster, their knowledge and magical power stretch far beyond mortal limits. They are considered to be the highest-ranking undead and could use spells from the highest tiers of magic.[1] All Overlord types naturally have high-level stats. Even the weakest variants have a minimum of 80 levels and would still possess high-level stats regardless.[2] For Suzuki Satoru, not even the most damaging 10th tier spell, [Reality Slash] with Metamagic Enhancement is enough to instantly kill off an Overlord with one hit.[3]
