After passing away at a young age to illness, Ira Takuto wakes up and finds himself in a forest. He is approached by Atou, a girl who bears a striking resemblance to a character in his favourite real-time strategy game “Eternal Nations”. Prior to his death, Takuto had achieved legendary status amongst players of Eternal Nations for clearing the game on the hardest difficulty with the most difficult, Evil-aligned civilization, “Mynoghra, the civilization of Ruin”. Atou, a Hero Unit from this civilization, explains that while she doesn’t know where they are at the moment, she still remembers all the times they spent together in the game world. On her suggestion, the pair decide to start the new country of Mynoghra once more.

Isekai Apocalypse Mynoghra ~The World Conquest Start with Civilization of Ruin~ is a web novel written by Kazuno Fehu. The story has also been adapted to manga, with art by GOMI Hidekazu.

Isekai Apocalypse Mynoghra features examples of:

  • Actual Pacifist: Takuto’s preferred playstyle in Eternal Nations was to focus on internal administration and domestic affairs. Because of this he actively avoids making any hostile actions towards any other nations.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Some chapters make it difficult to tell if Ira's fog form is Through the Eyes of Madness or Ira's human form is actually a Residual Self-Image to the audience.
  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: On a meta level. Takuto is officially registered as "evil" by the world setting, but he is generous, kind, practices genuine charity, and rescues the dark elf refugees for no other reward than a simple "thank you" and considers using them for labor and soldiers as an afterthought, when they come to him and beg to be of use, and what's more, only wishes to live in peace. The "Good" countries are rife with Fantastic Racism, classism, corruption, hypocrisy, and are rampant warmongers out to exterminate "heretics" and "blasphemers" simply on the pretext that they come from another race, or worship anything other than their "good" god(dess).

  • Bizarre Taste in Food: Mynoghra’s primary food resource production building is the Flesh Tree, which creates fruit that resembles the taste of human flesh.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Atou single-handedly kills a human scouting party consisting of fifty men and two Holy Knights. Even when she appears to be losing, she only does it to lower their guard so she could kill them a little faster
  • Combat Tentacles: Atou has the power to create countless tentacles, strong enough to cut down large trees with a single swipe, from her back or the ground.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite Takuto’s appearance as a black, shadowy figure, he is actually a very kind and caring person, even spending his own very limited mana to feed a starving group of Dark Elves he had never met before.
  • Death March: The Dark Elves were persecuted and chased out of their home by the Elves, with many being killed or taken as slaves. The few remaining survivors found themselves wandering with no destination and rapidly running out of food.
  • Death Seeker: The dark elf twins Cearia and Mearia, after being hired as maids to Takuto, deliberately failed at their tasks, hoping that he would get angry and kill them. They do this because during the dark elves’ exile, their mother volunteered to be eaten by the rest of the tribe so that the rest of them could survive.
  • The Dreaded: Takuto. Prior to meeting him, the dark elf sage Moltar warns the scavenging party of a great evil sealed in the cursed forest, known only as the “King of Ruin.” Subverted when they find out how big of a softie Takuto really is.
  • Early Game Hell: Mynoghra’s starting location is horrifically abysmal. Not only is it in the middle of the cursed forest where nothing grows, but there are also no strategic resources available, and freely available mana is next to zero. If that wasn't bad enough they are also surrounded by two of the largest Good-aligned countries in the game who wouldn't hesitate to destroy them if they were discovered.
  • Exact Words: When the Holy Knight asks if Atou would swear to god on her words, she replies she swears to her god.
  • Fantastic Flora: The Flesh Tree, a tree that produces fruit that has the taste and texture of human flesh. It also sometimes talks.
  • Fearless Fool: Puck. Upon seeing Takuto's shadow form for the first time, instead of cowering in fear or running away, he asks if he wants to be friends. He says yes.
  • Fictional Videogame: The game "Eternal Nations."
  • Game-Breaker: Takuto has the ability, Emergency Production, that allows him to spawn items at the cost of mana. While he isn’t able to spawn strategic resources that already exist in the game, he finds out that there are no such restrictions when it comes to things from outside the game. In-Universe, Takuto realizes just how broken this loophole can be when used in the context of Eternal Nations, a typical fantasy world.
  • Hero Unit: Takuto focuses on summoning these for his kingdom's defenses as they use less resources that won't strain their limited resources when starting out. Atou is also a Hero Unit.
  • Hidden Elf Village: Mynoghra is located deep within the cursed forest, Daijukai, where everyone is too scared to enter. Also literally an Elf Village since the inhabitants are primarily Dark Elves.
  • Insect Queen: Isla, Mynoghra's second hero unit. Her title is literally "Queen of All Bugs" and every single insect in the world grew stronger just because she was summoned.
  • Last Chance to Quit: Atou gives the human scouting party several chances to turn back from the forest. The leader of the group, Verdel, takes the hint is about to leave but his second in command demands that they capture and interrogate her before he takes over leadership of the group. He very quickly realizes his mistake.
  • The Lost Woods: The cursed forest, Daijukai, where Mynoghra is located. Because it's known as the place where the "King of Ruin" was sealed away, people generally avoid going near the area.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: Atou's tentacles appear to break out of her back, creeping out several of the Dark Elves when she first demonstrated it.
