"Ruler of Death" (死の支配者 Shi No Shihai-Sha) is the fourth episode of the Overlord Anime adaptation. It was first broadcasted on July 28, 2015.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Sunlight Scripture, led by Nigun Grid Luin prepares to attack Carne Village and kill Gazef Stronoff. When Carne Village is surrounded, Gazef requests Ainz Ooal Gown to protect the village once more, knowing that it is a selfish request. However, Ainz agrees due to his respect for him and hands him a souvenir sculpture as a gift which confuses Gazef. Gazef and his troops valiantly attempt to save the villagers from the fighting. Gazef uses his martial arts against the angels but he becomes overwhelmed by their magic, resulting in all his troops dead or unable to fight. Nigun tells Gazef that he should abandon the villagers and save his own life. Instead, Gazef taunts Nigun by telling him that someone in the village is stronger than he is. Nigun thinks he's bluffing and orders his angels to finish Gazef off. However, just before he is killed, he is suddenly teleported along with his men to the village storage house. Gazef notices that the sculpture has vanished from his hand, now realizing that he was saved by none other than Ainz.

Ainz confronts the Sunlight Scripture and requests them to surrender or face the consequences. Ainz uses Negative Burst on the Archangel Flame and uses Hell Flame on the Principality Observation. Nigun becomes desperate and uses the sealing crystal which summons the Dominion Authority. Ainz feels utterly disappointed at even his strongest angel, showing it in his expression. Nigun thinks Ainz is joking and orders the Dominion Authority to attack but it does the slightest damage to him. Albedo gets mad and curses this lower life form of hurting her beloved. Ainz calms Albedo down and uses Black Hole on the Dominion Authority. Nigun begins to beg for his life but he is turned down by Ainz and Albedo. The remaining members face the consequences of their foolishness.

Ainz easily defeats the Sunlight Scripture and returns to Nazarick. He announces and orders his NPCs to spread his name to the New World while his servants misinterpret his declaration and prepare for their own plan on taking over their world.
