Types of Overlord
- Overlord Wiseman: They're skilled in magic.
- Overlord Cronos Master: They could use time-related special abilities.
- Overlord General: They're adept at controlling armies of the undead.
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 stretches far beyond mortal limits. They are considered to be the highest-ranking undead and could use spells from the highest tiers of magic. 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. 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.
