|Yggdrasil is a Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game released in 2126 that is discontinued after 12 years of standing as the top DMMO-RPG. Momonga, guildmaster of Ainz Ooal Gown, is conversing with guild mate Herohero during the last moments of Yggdrasil in their guild hall, The Great Tomb of Nazarick. Herohero bids farewell to Momonga and logs out. Momonga is enraged about his friends leaving the game, but cools down after noting that they didn't abandon the guild - it was that they had real life issues to deal with. Now all alone in Nazarick except for NPCs and still engrossed in the memories of the past, he takes the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown and heads to the throne room. On the way he orders Sebas and his battle maids to follow and meets Albedo there. On a whim, he changes her settings to be in love with him as its originally setting created by Tabula was that she was an absolute "bitch". Momonga closes his eyes to await the forced logout by server but realizes something is wrong as he isn't ejected and remains in the game. He discovers, to his astonishment, that the NPCs have developed their own personalities and can be directly communicated with as if they were humans. Albedo, in particular, begins exhibiting the personality traits based on the settings Momonga made, much to his shock. Momonga attempts to test the limits of this new discovery but is forcefully calmed down. He also notices he can smell now, which was not possible in the game so far. Dazed at all that has occurred, Momonga orders Albedo to call every guardian except those from 4th and 8th floor to meet him in the arena floor. He teleports himself to the arena to test his skills.|

|Nigun Grid Luin, the captain of the Sunlight Scripture of the Slane Theocracy marches on Carne Village with a team of magic casters to kill Gazef. Realizing this, Gazef attempts to convince Ainz Ooal Gown (Momonga's new name) to defend the village to no avail, so he sets out with his men to confront them while Ainz assists the villagers in escaping. Gazef and his men fight bravely, but they are beaten severely by Nigun's men. Before Nigun's magic casters can deal the final blow, an item that Ainz had previously given Gazef activates and swaps the latter and his men with Ainz and Albedo. Ainz reveals that his whole scheme was to test the power that the Slane Theocracy's men had, and that he was using Gazef to do so. Immediately, Ainz begins effortlessly batting away the attacks of Nigun's men, much to their shock. This leads Nigun to activate a 7th tier spell, summoning a powerful angel to attack Ainz. The attack barely inflicts pain on Ainz, which he scoffs about. Albedo, however, is infuriated that someone hurt her "beloved" Ainz and threatens to massacre them. Ainz calms her down, and then proceeds to obliterate the angel with a black hole. Dumbfounded and horrified at the power Ainz displayed, Nigun begins to beg for his life. Laughing, Ainz responds by quoting one of Nigun's previous statements. After the battle, Ainz returns to Nazarick to announce his name change and their goal of spreading his new name, Ainz Ooal Gown, across these new lands. However, his servants misinterpret this as a declaration that he wishes to rule the world.|

|Momon's group arrives at Carne Village and meet Enri Emmot and her Goblin Troop. Enri tells Nfirea why the village is fortified and she also mentions Ainz Ooal Gown, the red potion that healed her, and Albedo which leads Nfirea to conclude that Momon is Ainz Ooal Gown. Nfirea apologizes to Ainz for deceiving him and Ainz tells him not to reveal his identity to anyone. Overhearing this, Nabe immediately becomes distraught as she was responsible for Nfirea uncovering Momon's identity. Later, as Nfirea requests the Swords of Darkness along with Momon and Nabe to help him collect medical herbs in the forest, Momon learns of the "Wise King of the Forest", a supposedly powerful magical creature. Seeing an opportunity to gain fame, Momon contacts Aura back in Nazarick and has her draw out the beast from its den. The beast angrily runs out of its den and charges Momon. Momon immediately recognizes the beast as a giant Djungarian hamster, a species that one of his guild mates kept as a pet in real life. Noting how much of a disappointment the Wise King was, Momon instead opts to use Aura of Dread level 1 to scare the beast into submission. Aura, seeing this, asks if she can take its pelt, but Momon decides to make the King his servant instead. Naming the Wise King Hamsuke, Momon introduces Hamsuke to the Swords of Darkness who are in awe over its wisdom. Momon, however, is floored by their perception of Hamsuke as he can't see her as anything other than a giant cute hamster. After successfully collecting the herbs, the group returns to E-Rantel. Momon and Nabe then part ways with the group to register Hamsuke while the Swords of Darkness return to the pharmacy for their payment from Nfirea. The group is intercepted by Clementine, however, who menacingly mocks the group.|

|Clementine appears in front of Nfirea to kidnap him. The Swords of Darkness attempt to buy time for Nfirea and Ninya to escape but Khajiit blocks their way of escape and the adventurers are slaughtered. After registering Hamsuke at the Adventurer's Guild, Momon's group meets Lizzie Bareare and guides them to her house. However, they find the Swords of Darkness turned into zombies. After killing them off, Momon immediately deduces three things: first, whoever did it didn't hide the bodies, meaning they didn't care to cover their tracks. Second, a piercing weapon was used to kill the Swords. Third, their target was Nfirea. With this knowledge, Momon asks Lizzie if she wants to hire him to save her grandson at the cost of all she has. Agreeing to the pseudo "Faustian Contract", Momon uses several locator spells to track Clementine to an old cemetery on the edge of town. Using Crystal Monitor, Momon discovers an undead army with Nfirea at its center. Ordering Lizzie to alert the guild and town, Momon immediately rushes to the cemetery. Upon arriving at the gate, Momon astonishes the guards by single-handedly annihilating the undead attacking them despite being only a copper plate. Along with Nabe and Hamsuke, Momon carves a path to Khajiit and Clementine. Confronting them, he mocks Khajiit and demands that they hand over Nfirea while also drawing out Clementine. Momon then leaves Nabe to deal with Khajiit while he and Clementine leave to take their battle elsewhere. As Momon and Clementine are walking, the latter attempts to psychologically taunt Momon. Momon brushes it off with laughter, and then enrages Clementine by declaring he doesn't need to fight seriously to kill her.|

|Momon and Nabe begin their respective fights against Khajiit and Clementine. Khajiit summons two skeletal dragons that he declares are impervious to magic, but this is proven partially false as Nabe easily obliterates both the dragons and Khajiit with a seventh tier spell (as the dragons can only block six and below.) Momon, continuing to give Clementine a handicap, clashes with her repeatedly. Furious at how Momon repeatedly mocks her as weak, Clementine charges Momon with a full force attack and stabs him in both eyes with elemental strikes. Laughing, Momon brushes off the move to Clementine's shock and pins her with a one-armed bear hug. Revealing his true nature as an undead elder lich, Ainz torments Clementine that she was defeated by a magic caster that didn't even use magic. Visibly shaken, Clementine snaps and flails relentlessly while thrashing at Ainz to release her. Her efforts prove futile, and Ainz crushes her body with both arms, killing her. Ainz then returns victorious with Narberal, Hamsuke and Nfriea and for his efforts is immediately promoted to Mythril rank. As he discusses his new promotion with Narberal, Ainz contacts Albedo who alerts him that Shalltear Bloodfallen has rebelled against Nazarick.|

Zesshi expresses intrigue in Ainz, as she seeks a man capable of defeating her so as to sire for her a more powerful child. Meanwhile in another location, former adventurer Rigrit of the original 13 Heroes & the Platinum Dragon Lord discuss the possibility that a dark and powerful player from Yggdrasil may have arrived to this New World.

After Ainz finishes a job as Momon, he returns to Nazarick to give a debriefing to Albedo (simply ecstaticed of his return) of what he has learned in relation to the notable nation states in the known world in proximity of Nazarick's position on the map. Aura, overseeing the construction of the decoy replica of Nazarick, receives a gift from Ainz in the form of a talking wristwatch with the voice of her creator Lady BukubukuChagama dictating Lunch Hour.

|The dark entity which descends from the sky is a Herald forewarning the Lizardmen of the Green Claw Tribe of an invasion in eight days time. Zaryusu advises an alliance with the other Lizardmen tribes- Small Fang, Razor tail, Dragon Tusk, and Red Eye. But as Dragon Tusk has survivors of defeated Tribes Yellow Speckle & Sharp Edge, there is little to no hope of alliance with them. Zaryusu is permitted by his brother the Chieftain to be the envoy to seek an alliance with the other tribes. Reaching the Red Eye tribe, Zaryusu meets Crusch Lulu the Interim Chief/Priestess of the village. Enamored by her, he instinctively lets out a mating cry desiring to marry her. After an awkward start, the two discuss an alliance and reach a consensus. Planning to build an alliance, Zaryusu & Crusch arrive in the Dragon Tusk village and meet the Chieftain Zenburu Gugu, who also received the Herald's message, but will only join the alliance if Zaryusu can prove his worth in combat. Back in Nazarick, Demiurge talks with Eclair, and it is revealed both are aware of Eclair's hidden agenda to usurp Nazarick's Throne as that was his design by Ankoro Mochi Mochi. As a decoy replica of Nazarick is under construction, Cocytus is informed by his subordinates of Demiurge's scroll mission and the need to report regularly. Cocytus takes this news, and readys his army for the coming war in a few days.|

|Zenburu fights Zaryusu, and they wager the role of Chief & Crusch for a mate. Zaryusu realizes his physical strength is less than Zanburu, but uses his Frost Pain axe item to freeze Zenburu with each attack, causing Zenburu to yield realizing he can't keep fighting an item which will kill him as he fights. The group parties to discuss the alliance, and Dragon Tusk joins in. Heading to the Razor Tail Tribe, the First attack site of the Hearld's message, Shasryu greets the trio and everyone gathers for a scout reports the odds are against them with forces 3:1. Cocytus views on a crystal monitor their gathering & orders the attack. The Lizardmen put up a moderate resistance, until the five Chiefs use their Magic Caster abilities to quickly summon Swamp Elementals. Entoma informs Lord Ainz, who views the situation with the Battle as unexpected. Cocytus messages Demiurge for insight, the latter informing him to think for himself as to how to ration and deploy troops against the Lizardmen, as it may be the undisclosed wish of Lord Ainz. Cocytus orders an Elder Lich Caster Commander into the fight, tearing down resistance with relative ease. Seeing their chance to enter the fight, Zaryusu sacrifices his steed Hydra Snake Rororo to get in close to the Lich to fight alongside Crusch & Zenburu, who are later rendered incapacitated, leaving Zaryusu to muster what strength he has left to trap himself and the Lich Commander in a massive ice cage. After much pain and many attacks, Zaryusu is victorious by surprise attacking the Lich in a fog and driving his Frost Pain into the former's brain.

|The Lizardmen celebrate victory; Zaryus & Crusch are alone in a tent blushing, when Zenburu barges in wondering if their "having fun"- much to their shock. Back in Nazarick, Ainz introduces 8th Floor Guardian 'Victim' to the others, to prepare for unforeseen encounters; Demiurge was successful in making higher quality scrolls using Sheep Beastmen; Ainz promises to fulfill Shalltear's need for punishment later on. Lastly, as Cocytus was defeated, Ainz explains he gave Cocytus a weak army so he'd learn to adapt & reapply resources as a leader. As all of Cocytus' forces were low Tier undead, there was no risk for Nazarick. But Cocytus must face punishment: he is to eradicate the Lizardmen. Cocytus instead asks the Lizardmen be spared into servitude of Nazarick. When Ainz asks why, Demiurge steps in proposing it could benefit them to see how governing a new people under Nazarick would work, as they may have to again in the future and starting now would help prepare them. Ainz agrees, but demands Cocytus rule them by means without fear. Ainz only wanted to hear Cocytus' free opinion, demanding his Guardians think over their orders so as to bring greater benefit to Nazarick. After departing, Demiurge states to the Guardians that Ainz intended for all this, wishing they learn to be more interdependent in their goal for conquest, and Cocytus' mission was also a probe of the Lizardmen. In his bedroom, Momonga is happy his guardians are learning to evolve, and also notices a familiar floral scent (Albedo's). The next day, the Guardians & Ainz himself return to the battlefield in a grand show of force: freezing the lake, Gargantua (twice the height of the forest) throws a massive stone in the center of the lake, & the undead perform a royal procession for Ainz to sit atop the stone and speak before the Lizardmen. When the Shasha brothers act as representatives, Demiurge uses controller magic to have them bow properly before Ainz' decree: Cocytus will arrive in 4 hours time to fight them on his own, and if they win they're forever free of Nazarick. The Five Tribe leaders discuss sending only themselves, with Crusch to stay behind & lead. As she argues against this, the Tribe Leaders leave Zaryusu to talk with her- they both accept that there will be death and Crusch demands Zaryusu impregnate her to preserve their love.|

During this preparation, Ainz & his guardians enter a temporary base of operations while Victim Guards the First Floor as they're out. Upon seeing a make shift throne for himself by his guardians, he opts to use Shalltear as a chair as her due punishment (when really he felt uneasy about sitting in a chair made of bones); this enrages Albedo but hyper stimulates Shalltear's pleasure. While observing the Lizardmen, the Mirror of Remote Viewing stumbles on Zaryusu & Crusch having sex- which starts a conversation Ainz forces to be quiet. The Lizardmen champions stand ready, and Cocytus arrives to do battle equipped in his Floor Guardian gear. Many Lizardmen die leaving only the Shasha brothers. Cocytus asks for their names and grants them the honor of death by his God Slaying Emperor Blade. Repeating the fog & surprise attack maneuver, they're easily countered & Shasryu is killed. Later, Ainz congratulates Cocytus for his victory & summons Crusch over for a deal: report & monitor her people for any signs of rebellion and Ainz will revive Zaryusu. Crusch agrees and Ainz resurrects Zaryusu (suffering confusion & level loss from the Yggdrasil rez function) among the villagers- who now worship him a god. After pledging their fidelity, Zaryusu asks for his brother & Zenburu be returned as well, and Ainz takes it into consideration having the Lizardmen keep their bodies safeguarded. Tired, Zaryusu & Crusch go to get rest.|

|Ainz (Pandora's Actor in disguise) investigates Sebas' possible betrayal, with Demiurge, Victim, & Cocytus as witnesses. He orders Sebas to kill Tuare to confirm his loyalty. Sebas does so, and having his attacked blocked by Cocytus, Sebas is proven to be a steadfast servant to Nazarick. After the real Ainz arrives, the Overlord hears Tuare’s full name & realizes she is the sister of Ninya (the spell caster from the Swords of Darkness), thus he allows Sebas' request of having her as a provisional maid.In the Re-Estize capital, Renner & Blue Rose meet to discuss the raids on Eight Fingers, but Marquis Raeven & Prince Zanac arrive with a solution. After a mild topic of Renner's true persona, she reveals she has damning intelligence on the Royal & Noble Factions, she coerces Raeven to lend his private army to the simultaneous raids of Eight Fingers. He reluctantly agrees, and Zanac reveals their eldest brother Barbro has a hidden storehouse in trade with Eight Fingers, which is now added to the map. Renner also reveals her ace against the syndicate, aside from Blue Rose's aid, is Gazef himself. After a long day of acquiring materials for Demiurge to feed his livestock of Arbelion Sheep, Sebas & Solution return to the manor to find Tuare missing & a note from Six Arms challenging Sebas for her freedom. Solution reminds Sebas of Ainz's words, and they message their master of the situation. Ainz, preoccupied as Momon elsewhere, relays to Albedo to send reinforcements. While initially hesitant to aid a human, she relents & sends the forces for Demiurge to command onsite to destroy Eight Fingers. Albedo, to herself, then thinks of the name Ainz Ooal Gown after the Guild name to be ridiculous, preferring Momonga- as evident by his original player banner draped on the wall, and the guild flag on the floor.|

The leader of Foresight, Hekkeran tries to bluff and say they received permission from a "large monster", but Ainz sees through the lie, which enrages him further. He initially attacks them with a sword and shield, but while he overwhelms them in strength, their own skill, experience and ability to work as a team, allow them to remain relatively unharmed. Ainz decides he has "played" enough and reveals himself as a magic caster; Arche initially denies his claim until Ainz shows off his true power, which he had concealed during the physical battle.

Ainz summons all Guardians (except Gargantua and Victim) and Pleiades Combat Maids, and shows them the item "Total Maniac-Modified", which Yuri points out has the power to destroy the world. Upon activation, Shalltear becomes a self-loathing person, Cocytus starts saying perverted things openly, Demiurge starts adding weird random words to his sentences, and Aura and Mare act more childish. Ainz states that the item has an effect that makes them open their heart, and agrees with Demiurge's explanation that this is an experiment to how they act upon affected by mental condition.
Ainz interviews Shalltear in his room, accompanied by CZ and (uninvited) Albedo. Shalltear and Albedo waste no time to start bickering with each other. When asked about the reason they always fighting, Shalltear states that the main reason is about their chest size, since all men thinks that "big breasts are justice". Ainz denies this, and states that there are people who likes flat chest too, and stuttered "hinnu" instead of "hinyuu" (flat-chested), though the others think that the term is cute. Then Ainz is asked the question: does he like big breast or small breast? To avoid any problems, Ainz ends the segment there and then.
Ainz interviews Aura, Mare and Cocytus, accompanied by Entoma. Ainz notes that Aura hasn't change much, which Aura states it's because she is always honest with herself. Cocytus keeps spouting perverted delusion (similar to the usual Albedo), so Ainz asks him to be silent, which makes him crying. In an attempt to cheer him, Entoma takes out a cockroach, which frightens Cocytus. Mare catches the cocroach, and the siblings roast it. Entoma points out that cockroach is more delicious to be eaten raw, and starts eating. In the midst of the chaos, Mare asks Ainz about the person he likes, shocking him. Albedo feels like she was called by Ainz, and Lupusregina jokes that it's a skill that big breasted people have, shocking Shalltear. Ainz asks them what they like the most, and Aura, Mare and Entoma all answers "Lord Ainz", but Cocytus almost says "breast", though he corrects his answer before he spouts it.
Ainz interviews Demiurge and Sebas, accompanied by Entoma and Solution. Demiurge still add random words to his sentences. Sebas tries to restraint himself from acting wildly, though he really wants to. He get the chance to do so when Demiurge said that Ainz asks them to act casually, but Solution states that the Sebas now is his true self, so he has no option but to restraint himself and act like everything is normal. Solution suddenly becomes plump, shocking Sebas (who screams), and in return shocking Ainz (whose emotion gets regulated). Ainz states that Solution takes a challenge to eat 10 humans at once, causing her to get fat.
Yuri, Lupusregina and Narberal arrives in the Treasure Room. She states that the "Total Maniac-Modified" is different from the one she saw last time, and accuses that it is made by Pandora's Actor, because the puppet's face on the item looks exactly like Pandora's real face. Demiurge joins the talk, and reveals that the item actually has no effect on him, and him talking weirdly is just an act. Pandora explains that since making item that affect personality is hard, he had a prototype that turns someone's personality to simple quality - sexually open, self-loathe on their complexes, amplifying childish tendencies, in short, changes into any character. In the end, it is revealed that Ainz actually took the prototype, since the prototype and the real has no differences in shape prior to being used (Even Pandora can't tell the differences).
In Ainz's room, everything became chaotic. In order to cure the effect, Pandora takes out the hammer-looking item "Total Calmness", which cancels the effect of "Total Maniac-Modified" upon hitting the affected people. As the leader of the Guardians, Albedo takes charge in resolving the problem - Solution and Lupusregina confront Shalltear, Entoma and CZ confront Cocytus, Sebas (still affected) confronts Aura and Mare, Yuri and Narberal guard the door, and Demiurges to hit the targets with "Total Calmness" (Albedo assigns herself to guard Ainz, which the latter doesn't want to tsukkomi). Upon healed, the affected people forgot what happened, and Demiurge told a lie that the destruction of Ainz's room is caused by Yuri's Flying Head Attack. For safety, Ainz hits Demiurge and Albedo with "Total Calmness" before decides to do the same thing upon himself. Afterwards, Pandora, in an attempt of getting screentime, states that it's just a beginning towards more madness (denied by Ainz). Alone in his room, Ainz thought that they can talk honestly with each other while bathing, and a mind-reading CZ points out it could be a foreshadowing.
