Spoiler Alert Spoiler Alert: WARNING! This page happens to contain a lot of heavy spoilers that are all originated from the Overlord author, Kugane Maruyama and his collection of written works. Anime-only watchers and Manga-only readers, please take some time off to reflect it over for a bit before choosing to expose yourself on reading the information below recklessly.

Viper's Tattoo is a magically animated snake tattoo.


Hilma, head of Eight Fingers' Drug Department, had a Viper's Tattoo drawn on her arms. She attempted to use this magic item to assassinate Mare, but he easily snake-handled the conjured creature and destroyed it.


The Viper's Tattoo takes a seemingly harmless appearance as a work of art on the wearer's skin.


The Viper's Tattoo stays in a dormant state upon the wearer's body. Once activated, the conjured snake will suddenly materialize ready to sink its very real fangs into its unknowing victim. The fangs contain a powerful neurotoxin which will immediately cause the victim to experience a short spasm before departing from the world. If the materialized entity is killed, it would take roughly one day’s time in order to recover.[1]


  • Interestingly, a demi-human race known as the Magelos, specialize in using tattoos that are actually spells.[2]
  • Hilma's viper tattoo could also be a Spell Tattoo and if this is the case she could also be of the Shamanic Adept class even if she is below rank.
  • The item was shown in the Anime but was never activated by Hilma.
