Royal Air Guard (ロイヤル・エア・ガード) is the aerial warfare branch of the Imperial Army.


The Baharuth Empire's elite troops that are under the Emperor’s direct command. They guard the skies of the imperial capital and act as a defense force against aerial attacks from monsters or invaders with the ability to fly.

A unit from this Guard escorted Baharuth Empire's delegation to the Great Tomb of Nazarick.[3]

They were also said to have been present flying above the massive Imperial Castrum to greet the Sorcerer King Ainz Ooal Gown on the battlefield.[4][5]


The Guard is composed of experienced riders who use flying beasts.[6] They have fantastic mounts like griffins and hippogriffs. For stealth, the riders are equipped with invisibility mantles that render them and their mounts unseen by the naked eye.


  • A salute from the Royal Air Guard from a unit would begin with a wide aerial orbit, followed by a slow descent. This was the typical way for how a unit of the Royal Air Guard does it. These troops under the Emperor’s direct command saluted while in flight, which was to say their ceremonial descent was meant to show that emissaries of the Empire had arrived.
