This page shows a list of Tier Magic spells appearing from YGGDRASIL and the New World throughout the Overlord series. With the exception of Super-Tier Magic, the order of tier spells are ranked from 1st to 10th Tier.


There were more than 6000 spells available in YGGDRASIL to obtain and unlock from leveling. It ranged from 1st Tier to 10th Tier, as well as Super-Tier Magic. These spells were divided among various types and schools.[1]

In the world of YGGDRASIL, it was said there was no need to actually speak or make incantations when casting spells, but one’s colleagues would not know what was going on if nothing was said. Therefore, magic casters announced their spell with names as a sign of courtesy between them.

One could normally only learn three spells per level. For instance, a normal level 100 player would only be able to use up to 300 spells by far if no cash items or racial skills like Ainz's Dark Wisdom are involved.[2]

However, in the New World, there are spells that would normally take eight years for inhabitants to master as it takes a while for people to level up due to their slow character growth. That is if one doesn't possess a talent in cutting half the amount of time.[3]

On the other hand, it requires supposedly seven job classes in a regular magical class for the magic caster to rise above the next tier level.

Behind the origin of Tier Magic, the majority of its spells in the New World dates back to a certain city during the era of the Eight Greed Kings. At some point in time, other sorts of spells are actually created from the basis of old ones that already existed which later help pave the way for the continuous development of new spells in various regions.[4] Unlike YGGDRASIL, new tier spells are considered unique as they were developed and made over the course of given time by natives like Evileye.[5]

Additionally, particular tier spells that involved the use of resurrection magic would require various objects ranging from gold coins, jewels or other valuables as part of its cost.[6]

Meanwhile, various tier spells like [Fireball] can be used and casted simultaneously as a form of group tactic in wars and battles. However, no historical records are known to have been written about it. For instance, multiple people using a 1st-tier spell like [Magic Arrow] altogether was unheard of nor does it ever existed or introduced as a tactic. This was because to learn even the beginner’s level of the first tier of spells required a certain amount of potential, never mind the amount of time that had to be invested to educate a magic caster. Given the same amount of time and resources, it was more beneficial to train a hundred archers than a single magic caster for combat.

Normally speaking, spell damage could not be evaded, guarded, or reduced by physical armor. Purely energy-based spell attacks like those of [Fireball] should be effective against enemies with pieces of amour or sturdy exoskeletons. The same could also be said with other monsters with magic or elemental resistances.[7]

There are different types of spells that were not only affected by ability scores, passive skills, special skills, and equipment abilities, but were also affected by resistances gained through levels, penalties, and so on. For example, the instant-death spells specialized by necromancers like Ainz. If they were cast on an opponent of similar level, it would be hard for those spells to have any effects at all if they were not enhanced through any means.[8]

0th Tier

Spells     Description
Lifestyle Magic It was a spell to warm up one bowl or plate of food. It used the same quantity of mana as a First Tier, so it was rarely used.
Unknown Magic It was a spell to create the kind of papers that are coarse and discolored.
Unknown Magic It was a spell to create drinkable water that is not as sweet as its first-tier counterpart.

1st Tier

Spells     Description
Anti-Evil Protection A 1st tier spell used to defend against attacks from evil beings.
Bunny Tail A 1st tier spell used to decrease aggression towards the caster.
Camouflage In the Web Novel, a 1st tier spell that made it more difficult for someone to be detected. The spell allows the user to change their skin color to blend in with their environment.
Clean It is a 1st tier spell used by the Slane Theocracy's Cardinals to clean their clothes and their equipment. Through Widen Magic, the spell is even capable of making the entire room to be cleaned with ease.
Compass A 1st-tier spell which was believed to be a single-target version of [Mass Compass].
Create Water A 1st tier lifestyle tradition spell which creates water. While zero-tier spells could also create drinkable water, the water created by this spell was described as being more sweeter upon tasting it. As a first-tier spell, the water generated by [Create Water] was not limited to just filling a single basin. While there was a time limit to it, the overall volume of water created that would increase in keeping with the caster’s skills. This could be parceled out over multiple occasions. Therefore, there would be no spillage and waste even if the user cast the spell on the basin.
Destruction Water It is a 1st tier spell that the caster used to make the water disappear immediately. This spell belonged to one of the four great systems which is also known as the elemental traditions. It could also be used for offensive purposes. It did less damage when used against living beings than other spells of the same tier. However, it could do significant damage to Water Elementals and other creatures closely aligned with the element of water. Higher-level versions of the third tier could also affect Slimes to some extent.
Floating Board A 1st tier spell that can create a floating, translucent board and it is used for carrying over objects. In a way, it serves to be a transportation method.
Lesser Mind Protection
Light Healing A 1st tier divine spell that heals allies of their wounds with a soothing warm green light.
Magic Arrow A 1st tier spell that allows the user to shoot out an arrow made of mana that will pierce a target. Ainz also used this spell with Triplet Maximize Magic. Ulbert, on the other hand, uses it with Boost Magic. In addition, Iguva=41 can cast the spell with Silent Magic. Unlike regular arrows, [Magic Arrow]s were guaranteed to hit independent of the evoker's skills. Casting it at a higher tier would increase the amount of projectiles generated as well as the individual damage output of each projectile. Even so, a single projectile's damage output was still minuscule. It was pretty much impossible for them to one-shot their enemies with a single cast. The damage output of the spell did not depend on where the enemy was struck.

Quick March In the Web Novel, this 1st tier spell could instantly increase an individual's movement speed by about 20%.

Message In the Web Novel, the spell is classified as part of the 2nd tier. This spell was used to communicate in the game. Normally, its use was restricted to certain places and conditions. The problem was that this spell was originally designed to communicate with other players, and it could not reach a GM. When one used the [Message] spell, as long as the other party was within the game, one would hear a call tone. Otherwise, there would be no sound, and the spell would immediately terminate. In the New World, the effect from this spell's usage felt like something was constantly reaching out, as though looking for something to connect to.

Lopsided Duel A 3rd-tier spell that bounds the caster to the target such that whenever the target tried to flee by teleportation, both caster and target would appear in the same place. It could even ignore the target’s use of [Delay Teleportation] and teleport both of them to the designated location. However, this spell had a fatal flaw. If the target teleported among its friends, then the caster would be brought to the same place thanks to the binding, whereupon he would be surrounded. Before it was patched in YGGDRASIL, one could cast it on a teammate and piggyback off their teleportation, but after the patch, it could only be cast on enemies. This spell also had the advantage that if the caster teleported away, his opponent would not be teleported with it, which made fleeing easy.
Slow A 3rd tier spell that slows down an enemy's movement. Ainz seems to use this spell with Penetrate Magic.
Spider Talisman Entoma uses about four pieces of talisman to summon an enormous spider the moment it hits the ground. The level of this spell is equivalent to a 3rd tier Summon Monster’ spell. These spiders are handy for buying time and determining an enemy's capability.

Sand Field: All A 5th tier spell. It was created by Evileye and is one of her strongest spells. Sand particles disperse throughout the surroundings. Because it affects one's comrades too, this spell was useless in a group fight. Any opponent within its area would be immobilized, as well as being blinded, silenced and dazed. By using this in conjunction with her trump card, it will also cause life drain on all caught within the spell's range.
Summon Undead 5th A 5th tier spell that allows one to summon 5th tier level undead summons like Heavy Skeleton Warrior.
Teleportation A 5th tier spell that allows the caster to teleport over a distance.
Vermin Bane An original spell created by Evileye during her fight against the insect demon god two hundred years ago. It forms a white mist of gas where if any insects were to enter its range, they're killed by it with the exception of Entoma's powerful resistance against the spell. This type of magic was developed with the sole purpose of repelling the insects used by that individual. The spell is effectively a counter-measure to insects while it doesn't cause any slightest harm to other organisms. The mana consumption of her original spell, 'Vermin Bane' is extremely large and is considered to be best reserved for when the opponent is about to summon insects.

8th Tier

Spells Description

Astral Smite An 8th tier spell. It is an attack that is effective against Ethereal beings. This also counts against beings, who are temporarily Ethereal.
Death An 8th tier spell that can be used on a single target each time. Ainz can use it with Silent Magic.

Crack In The Ground A 9th tier divine spell which causes the ground to split open, creating a fissure that gripped the foe’s leg as an entrapment.
Elemental Form A 9th tier spell that has similar effects to the 8th tier spell Aspect of Elemental.
God's Eye A 9th Tier spell that casted an intangible and invisible eye. its range was far greater than [Remote Viewing] and it could also pass through obstacles like walls. While this spell was excellent for spying, you couldn’t say that it was the absolute best there was. Though it was invisible, it could easily be detected by second-tier detection spells. Plus, even though it was intangible, if it was destroyed in an attack, the caster would receive damage as feedback. Since this was also considered divination, the opponent could find his location through anti-divination measures or an attack could come flying over if it triggered any automated defenses.
Grasp Heart A 9th tier spell in which the caster grabs and crushes their opponent's heart, causing instant death to them. Even if the target resists, they instead become stupefied or stun as a secondary effect. This is said by Ainz to be his favorite spell.

Nuclear Blast When used with Maximize Magic, this 9th tier spell was powerful enough to entirely consume the space between the user and their target in an instant. However, the user will also be caught in the range of the spell's attack. The spell does composite damage (half fire, half bludgeoning) and it was one of the weaker 9th tier spells in terms of damage. Nonetheless, it had a very large area of effect to the point that if the surrounding buildings are present, those large objects would have been swept away in the middle of that explosion. In that respect, the spell was superior to almost all others as it can generate all kinds of negative status effects. This includes poisoning, blindness, deafness, and so on. Anything of the Evil Lord's level would be able to resist it with their raw statistics alone. It possessed a very powerful knockback effect. Ainz stated that he could even cast this spell with Widen Magic to increase the area and range of its effect if need be.
Perfect Unknowable A 9th tier spell used to make the user invisible to the naked eye. It can also erase one's traces and sounds including the pitch of the user's voice from being heard, making the magic caster very difficult to detect if they did not have very high-level thief-type job classes.
Polar Claw A claw that emitted air as chilled as the poles clawed at the target. It had no secondary effects but dealt a lot of damage, the highest DPS of any ice-based spell in fact.
Tempest A 9th tier spell that allows one to create intense storms with high velocity rain and winds that can do damage to lower level opponents and block an enemies vision. It can also be used to clear other visions obstructing spells like the fog casted by Ainz scroll during his fight with Decem Hougan
Temporal Stasis A single-target spell that could prevent the opponent from moving. It also prevented them from taking any damage while the spell lasted. That was why it was usually used when there were multiple hostiles.
True Death A 9th tier instant death spell, which invalidates the effect of lower-tier resurrection magic.
True Resurrection A 9th tier spell, which is capable of reviving the dead. It could resurrect low-leveled beings like Neia Baraja without turning them into ashes during the process, but they will still lose some levels along the way.
Vermilion Nova A 9th tier spell. It is an attack targeting the opponent with a pillar of flame while dealing fire-based type of damage. Ainz considered it be the highest-level, super-tier magic notwithstanding, single-target anti-personnel fire-element attack spell that he is capable of. This spell could be used in combination with both Triplet Magic and Maximize Magic together.

10th Tier

Spells Description
Armageddon - Evil A 10th tier spell that summons an army of demons. According to the standards of YGGDRASIL players, said demons are not considered to be strong. Since demonic summons has the tendency to go berserk, the spell usually used to obtain sacrifices for rituals and skills.
Armageddon - Good A 10th tier spell.
Body of Effulgent Beryl A 10th tier spell that reduced the effectiveness of bludgeoning attacks against its subject while it was in effect, and it could completely negate one instance of bludgeoning damage after it was cast.
Body of Effulgent Aquamarine A 10th tier spell that reduced the effectiveness of piercing attacks against its subject while it was in effect, and it could completely negate one instance of piercing damage after it was cast.

Attempting to master new techniques, Ainz has done several experiments on lab rats like CZ2128_Delta while he practiced using the spell multiple times. To some degree, if used on an NPC, he is able to manipulate information that originated from the NPC's backstory set by their creator.
Create Fortress A 10th tier spell that summons forth a mighty fortress or a 30 meters tall tower out of thin air. In YGGDRASIL, anyone on the same team could open those doors with a touch. All others would have to break them down.
Field of Unclean A 10th tier spell.
Implosion It is a 10th tier spell that causes the target to collapse or burst inward.
Mercy of Shorea Robusta A 10th tier Druid spell with a high mana drain similar to reality slash it has 3 known effects when casted:
  • First, for a limited period of time, it would gradually recover HP. However, the recovery rate was trivial and so it was hard to call it useful for people at a higher level range.
  • The second one was absolute immunity against instant death.
  • the third effect, automatically resurrected the target when their HP reached 0 and died. This would not cause a drop in levels from resurrection. The trigger condition of HP going to 0 made it useless against deaths that weren’t caused by damage like those by drowning, but it was still a very useful spell. That said, they would be at low health upon resurrection, so they were very likely to die anyway after a few hits. Still, there were a lot of cases where people were saved by this spell. Incidentally, it could avoid death from Ainz’s ultimate skill, The Goal of All Life is Death as this spell was considered resurrection magic. In that case, however, the spell would end even if there was still some active time left. It was because the spell would be dispelled after it activated the resurrection portion.
Mirror World Guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown used illusion magic of the highest tier, the [Mirror World] spell, to create a hemispherical screen which enclosed them. One could observe the outside world from inside the bubble without any problems, but from the outside, the inhabitants of the barrier were invisible, and people outside would only see the background. Aside from making the user harder to detect, the spell could also reflect a certain proportion of attacks directed at the occupants within.
Mist of Super Acid An AoE spell that creates a mist of strong acid that engulf the target. After being surrounded by the mist, the target will not only sustained damage by it but also their equipment and weapons as well, albeit only a small amount of damage to those.
Meteor Fall A 10th tier spell which causes a falling meteor to fall from the sky with shimmering light, which blinds onlookers temporarily. The meteor rips through the air and hit its intended target, then creates a burst of explosion upon contact. As a result, the massive explosion created by the meteor was able to flatten everything it touches and pulverized any surrounding targets.
Nature's Shelter It is a 10th tier divine spell which can summon forth a bunker from the earth. The inside of the shelter gives the illusion of an endless sky.
Reality Slash A 10th tier spell that is top class in damage dealing, but consumes a lot of mana. The spell is considered to be a lesser version of 'World Break'. By using "Triplet Maximize Magic," Ainz creates three attacks that slashed space itself. It is capable of cleaving through the very fabric of space, and a hit from this powerful attack spell could disregard virtually any form of magical defense.
Seven Trumpeter A 10th tier divine spell
Stream of Lava A 10th tier, divine spell that deals fire-type damage.
Summon Monster 10th Shalltear uses this spell to call forth a high-tier monster.
Summon Undead 10th The user utilizes a spell to conjure forth a powerful undead being under one's command. A Doom Lord can be summoned using this spell.

Ultimate Disturb A 10th tier spell that increases an ally's magic resistance rapidly, at the price of wrecking their ability to cast spells.
Uriel A 10th tier spell that deals fire-type damage. It was the kind of spell that could be learned by a magic caster of any type as long as the requirements to learn it were met. However, this spell only did its listed damage when cast by a magic caster with a maxed-out positive karma value. Its damage decreased as one’s karma value decreased. For Ainz with negative karma value, it would do less damage than a first-tier spell.

By using "Triple Maximize Magic," Ainz can summon about three swords that gave off a black light while floating in midair. The Obsidian Sword constructs could only be used as an offensive tool and could not be used to defend oneself.

It also carried the benefit of being able to use certain pieces of arms and armor that would normally require specific job classes to access without penalty. This would include freely utilizing any weapons and it's abilities shown during his fight with Shalltear. However, there were many drawbacks to that spell. The first weakness was that he could not cast other spells while the magic was in effect. In addition, he would not gain any special warrior skills from the spell, and his recalculated ability scores would be lower than an actual warrior. Secondly, sustaining the transformation spell and other magic would both lower his mana and mana recovery rates to zero. This form was enough when matching blades with second-rate combatants like priests and the like, but he would stand no chance of winning against an opponent who was a dedicated warrior.

  • In the Web Novel, regarding YGGDRASIL, it was said that 3000 spells cannot be changed or made with the use of creator tools.[16]
  • Spells of the same tier rank can be more powerful when cast by a stronger magic caster than a weaker caster.[17]
  • 0th tier spells seem to be apparently native to the New World while it being non-existent in YGGDRASIL.[18]
  • In the New World, there is the Nameless Book of Spells which records spells from old to new ones created into the grimoire.[19]
  • Cardinals from the Slane Theocracy refer to Super-Tier Magic as the 11th tier even though it is not one by YGGDRASIL standard.[20]
  • Metamagic is known to be used by different users in the Overlord series for enhancing their tier spells.[21]
  • There are some spells like Fireball that can enchant items like the Stiletto weapon to be used later or through the Wand. This would even include the Magic Scrolls or Sealing Crystals too for that matter.[22]
  • In the New World, Humanoids' highest tier usage has been confirmed to be up to the 6th Tier. On the other hand, Demi-Humans' highest confirmed tier access is up to the 5th Tier. Meanwhile, Heteromorphs such as undead have managed to reach up to the 8th tier although that is hidden from public knowledge.
  • In YGGDRASIL, certain spells and skills that deal damage are affected by karma values.[23]
  • Copper seems to hinder low-level scrying spells, hence some nobles coat their office with plates of copper.[24]
  • Specific magic casters used Dimensional Lock or Dark Vision as a spell while particular races like angels used them as a skill. In other words, both the spell and skill's effect works one or the same way as one another's counterpart. Despite the similarity they happen to share between the two, there are certain restrictions for accessing each one of them.
