Thirteen Heroes (十三英雄) were legendary figures who appeared two hundred years prior to when Ainz Ooal Gown first awoke in the New World; and fought against the Evil Deities when the world was in total chaos.


Two hundred years earlier, the New World suffered distress from the destruction caused by the Evil Deities. Responding to this calamity, the Thirteen Heroes were formed and fought against the Evil Deities, defeating them one by one. The final enemy they fought in their adventures together was a powerful dragon, once known as the God Dragon.[1]

According to Evileye, she made mention of the leader of the Thirteen Heroes, who started out as the weakest in the group but eventually became the strongest of them all. In addition, she noted that there were actually more than thirteen members in the group. However, people have chosen to ignore those among their number who were non-human. As such, only certain individuals have been deemed part of the Thirteen Heroes.[3]

At some point in the past, between two members of the Thirteen Heroes clashing, it was said that Rigrit triumphs over Evileye with the help of the adventurer group, Blue Roses.[4]

During a discussion he had with Emperor Jircniv, Fluder Paradyne recalls meeting one of the Thirteen Heroes by the name of Rigrit. Fluder viewed her as the only person who stood out from the rest of the other heroes out there, claiming that she is the best among them in the group.[5]

Pandora's Actor posing as the Sorcerer Kingdom was attacked by a being known as Riku Aganeia, which the shape-shifter recognized as being a name associated with the legendary group. When he reported back to Ainz Ooal Gown, the possibility that members of the Thirteen Heroes were alive was brought to the attention of the Sorcerer Kingdom.[8]


Considering the power of Evileye and her evaluation of Demiurge, it is clear that most of the heroes were much weaker than level 100 YGGDRASIL characters. In terms of their tier level, Fluder Paradyne has stated that 5th tier magic is the highest capable by the heroes. Additionally, he stated that the Thirteen Heroes were equipped with powerful magical weapons which they received from the last city of the Eight Greed Kings.[9]
