Top 20 Strongest Overlord Characters

Overlord Anime Characters
An anime series with an overwhelming main character is definitely an amazing story to follow. Such is the premise of Overlord, a TV anime that premiered in 2015 and currently debuted its 3rd season a few weeks ago. Based on a light novel of the same title by Kugane Maruyama and illustrated by so-bin. Overlord about a gamer who got himself trapped inside an MMORPG and instead of worrying about the uncertainty of his fate, he embarked on a journey of unraveling the mystery of the new world where he woke up together with game NPCs and those characters that he met along the way.
In this decade, Overlord is among those anime series with O.P. main character. When we said O.P., it is simply overpowering characters that could annihilate, vanquished, destroyed, or defeat their opponent easily, or in a very extreme way. Overwhelming strength, unmatched intelligence, godly tactical prowess, and a similar degree of power were among the basis of how o.p. a certain character could be.

  1. Um Ainz is clearly the strongest with insane intelligence. It has been stated over and over and over through out the series. Other than that I agree with this.

  2. I feel like Ainz would be number one due to the skill TGOALID. I mean, insta death, no exceptions. Along with his inventory full of pay to win items… unless rubedo and the others ranked higher can resurrect at least 3 times or have some world items to their disposal, I doubt they can defeat ainz

  3. I know that Ainz isn't the strongest but he is THE STRONGEST when it comes to a battle cuz bruh 700+ skills and a game breaking MP plus there are still a lot of stuff we dont know about Ainz

  4. Great list! The only thing I found inaccurate was Gargantua over Momonga. I would actually prefer Momonga in third place because of his strategic abilities. Momonga was able to overpower Shalltear, who is also has the upper-hand against Momonga. Also, Shalltear and Momonga are both stronger than Pandora's Actor.
