Sleipnirs (スレイプニール) are eight limb horses originating from YGGDRASIL but later were introduced to the New World by the past YGGDRASIL players.

Appearance Edit

Sleipnirs are much larger in size when compared to normal horses. They have eight legs instead of the usual four for horses and have a black skin complexion with silver-white color for their mane.[1]

Abilities Edit

With their superior muscle strength, endurance, and mobility, Sleipnirs are regarded as the most versatile type of magical beast for traveling across lands. Due to their abilities, the cost for one Sleipnir is akin to that of the cost of five or more warhorses.[2]

Sleipnirs were magical beasts and were stronger than normal horses. And thus a kick from its hooves were powerful, and a lethal blow.

Sleipnirs were not as timid as horses, but their strong bodies could buck their riders off with enough of a force to kill them. And so they underwent strict training.[3]

Trivia Edit

  • In Norse mythology, Sleipnir is the name of the steed used by Odin, the King of the Gods.
  • Even among the nobility of the Baharuth Empire, it was uncommon for a noble to possess Sleipnir.[4]
  • These beasts pulled the carriage of the Emperor of the Baharuth Empire.[5]</ref>
  • In the Web Novel, a Sleipnir was given to Archduke Ainz Ooal Gown as a gift by Jircniv Rune Farlord El Nix. Though the horse was wild and hit Ainz on the head but due to his skill was unharmed.
