World Enemy is a special title associated with the strongest boss monsters in the DMMO-RPG, YGGDRASIL.


A World Enemy was described to be an immensely powerful, boss monster hidden in the game. There were thirty-two of these extraordinary monsters in total, and one could infer the dev team’s love of dragons from the number of draconic entities among them.[1]

On the other hand, there is a likely chance of obtaining a World Item after defeating one of the World Enemies such as the Lords of the Seven Deadly Sins.[2]

Known World Enemies


Even if thirty levels 100 players work together, fully prepared and forewarned of the battle ahead, enter combat with any one of these World Enemies, the outcome of the match would still be in doubt. If one of these monsters had appeared before them, it would be a threat to the Great Tomb of Nazarick. World Enemies' attacks could bypass the racial resistances of heteromorphic monsters or players.[3]

By YGGDRASIL standard, despite a legion, composed of six parties of six players each (36 players in total), they would still not have much of a chance against these unimaginably powerful creatures.[4]

While World Enemies are level-breaking monsters, even the weakest one is estimated to be at least level 100, but most of them are higher. They were the first type of monsters confirmed to have a cap that is beyond level 100.

According to Maruyama, World Enemies are immune to the abilities of World Items like Longinus.[5]


  • At some point in the past, the guild known as Ainz Ooal Gown had nearly been destroyed as a result of fighting a World Enemy.[6]
  • To the developers, among the World Enemies in the game, "World Eater" is the incredibly powerful last boss of the main campaign storyline.[7]
  • While the maximum size of a raid was five parties of six people each, or 30 people in total, fighting a World Enemy is not restricted to the game rule. However, apart from that and guild battles, people who were over the limit would be subjected to friendly fire.
  • In the Web Novel, a World Champion player of Muspelheim used an unknown World Item to turn into a World Enemy-type boss through a curse and was left in an unparalleled state.[8]
