** Played straight back when Touch Me was the leader of the clan that would eventually become Ainz Ooal Gown, as a
[[PurposelyOverpowered World Champion]], he was pretty unambiguously the strongest player of the guild. [[DeconstructedTrope Also an example of why this trope is not ideal in a realistic setting.]] As strong and skilled as he was, Touch Me was apparently pretty confrontational ([[GoodIsNotNice despite]], or maybe [[KnightTemplar because of]], his [[KnightInShiningArmor obsession with justice]]), and was at the core of several severe internal conflicts in the guild. Momonga, meanwhile, was nowhere near as powerful or daring, but got along uniquely well with everyone and served as the glue that bound the guild members together (at least until most, through no fault of his own, had to quit due to personal life issues).

Added DiffLines:

* OurHydrasAreDifferent: Saryasu keeps a pet hydra named Rororo he raised from a hatchling, which looks like a ''Brachiosaurus'' with four snake heads and necks.


* CovertPervert: Cocytus, after being exposed to Total Maniac - Modified, which supposedly removes [[BehindTheMask "the barriers around one's heart"]] starts spouting raunchy nonsense.

Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Played With. The Pleiades set up a trap to capture a creature Hamsuke wishes to mate with. The trap, when activated, drops a huge metal ball on the animal, explodes, ''then'' drop a metal cage over the remains. When Yuri worries that this excessive trap sequence would kill the creature instead, Solution flippantly responds that any creature that couldn't survive the ordeal is unworthy of being in Nazarick.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalSavingsSplurge: Arche was a gifted student mage who had to quit her studies to become a Worker (adventurers who take on less legal, but more rewarding jobs) to support her parents and sisters, which leads to her taking on the Nazarick job and dying horribly. The reason for this is that her parents have refused to realize that they were disgraced by the Emperor and continue their ConspicuousConsumption lifestyle (buying jewelry when even the next meal isn't a certainty), eventually selling her sisters into slavery where they both died of overwork. Even worse, the Nazarick raid was supposed to be OneLastJob allowing her to take her sisters away and leave their family behind.

Added DiffLines:

* IndestructibilityMontage: The series has a few set up just to show how powerful Ainz is.
** Ainz demonstrates his superiority to Clementine by taking everything she can dish out to him. She tries everything, from stabbing him to martial arts to simply flailing around with SuperStrength. But Ainz is a PhysicalGod who remains completely unfazed by it all while [[CruelAndUnusualDeath slowly crushing her to death in his embrace.]]
** The Raiders arc is essentially a long, excruciating montage of how invincible Nazarick is (Ainz had to specifically disable most of the tomb's defenses and set teleport traps so some of the raiders could actually face him), with the adventurers suffering entirely overly grim deaths (the one AssholeVictim got off with an almost instantaneous death).

** That's not to say that the world Satoru came from was any better. In [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2138]], Earth has become a polluted cesspool where going outside required near constant use of gasmasks, [[MegaCorp Mega Corps]] rule the world, class oppression is a thing to the point that people work themselves to death to send their children to ''elementary school'' as the mandatory education system was abolished and fresh meats and vegetables are considered a delicacy reserved for the elite. It's worth noting that despite the initial loneliness he felt in Yggdrasil, Momonga questioned if he should even bother trying to go back home.

* BoxingLessonsForSuperman: * Volume 4 and the first Audio Drama have Ainz trying to instill tactical thinking and teamwork respectively on the Guardians of Nazarick, as their only recently developed egos mean they rely largely on their overwhelming power to win battles.
