These days, every Isekai series seems to be reiterating the same premise as every other Isekai series. That’s why it’s good to have at least one Isekai show that falls out of the cliché and gives us the best of another-world experience with a DMMO-RPG twist.
Overlord is an anime with unique character interactions and battles laced seamlessly throughout the brilliant storyline.
The series is set in a way that allows enhancements and de-buffs to certain characters, which feel perfectly understandable in the world of magic items and spells.
The way the characters’ power scaling is maintained in the series is also quite noteworthy. The anime has many different characters but impressively manages to balance out their strength.
Today, we rank the strongest characters in Overlord based on their strength, skills, and abilities seen so far in the anime.
