So far in the Overlord anime, the only confirmed player is Ainz. But are there any other players from YGGDRASIL still in the game? Or is Ainz the only player in Overlord? It’s a question many people are asking since Shalltear was mind controlled by an unknown world class item.
We’re going to dive into the details from the light novel to find an answer. Be prepared for spoilers!
Overlord: What Are Players?
Players are real people. Not to be confused with NPCs. Ainz Ooal Gown is a player who got stuck in a virtual world after it was disconnected from its server. As a player, he maintained the abilities and characteristics of his gaming avatar.
It is possible other players arrived from other mmorpgs or via different means.
Some NPCs are aware of the term “Players”. These NPCs are not believed to understand the true meaning of the term. They merely know them as gods and treat them with great reverence.

Where Are the Other Players in Overlord?
There are currently no other known players in Overlord. There have been 18 other confirmed players throughout the world’s history.
These other players only existed hundreds of years ago and have since disappeared. They include:
- The Six Great Gods – 600 years ago
- Eight Greed Kings – 500 years ago
- A player killed by the Deep Darkness Dragon Lord – 300 years ago
- Leader of the Thirteen Heroes – 200 years ago
- Minotaur Sage – 200 years ago
- Kikotenshin Nekonyan
Will we discover other players? Given that they have appeared in the past, it wouldn’t be surprising if more returned. We will have to wait and see.
