Mysterious Riddle Time (歪高のなぞなぞタイム) is the thirty-second chapter of the Overlord: The Undead Oh! series.
In the Treasury, Tabula Smaragdina showcases the door of the Mausoleum to his guildmates, Momonga and Peroroncino. To ensure that no one can enter the deepest treasure hall, he installed a password. He then tells the password to the two: "By this means you shall acquire the glory of the whole world, And so you shall drive away all shadows and blindness". Momonga and Peroroncino complain that its too long to remember. Tabula has already anticipated thus he inserted a hint in the door when they say "Glory to Ainz Ooal Gown". But what written on the door, “Ascendit a terra in coelum. Iterumque descendit in terram, et recipit vim superiorum et inferiorum,” draws them even more confusion as its in Latin.
Tabula explains that the password he gave them was the Japanese version of the Latin verse. Peroroncino believes that it would be better to use some parts of the hiragana of the sentence as the password, which Momonga agrees to as it would be more easier to remember.
A week later, the three are back in the Treasury again. Tabula has changed the password so that the door will ask a question with a hint which he is confident will be easier to remember. The guildmates activate the door and it displays the question: "What is the pink sticky body warmed by the kotatsu?". Tabula explains that its a riddle that only the guild members can answer. The answer to Peroroncino is obvious and states that it is Bukubukuchagama. However to the shock of both Momonga and Peroroncino, it's not. To them, the answer can't be anything but Peroroncino's sister, then the latter recalls that when he was living with his parents his sister having a cold had decided to warm herself with kotatsu and tries the answer is "catch a cold". But that is wrong as well. Then Momonga realizes that Bukubukuchagama wasn't the answer as the question was a play on words for "Bubbling Teapot" which Tabula confirms to be correct. In the end, Tabula switches back to his previous password setup as he ignored his friends' complaints on it being too long.
