Overlord is an isekai anime with an overpowered protagonist. Ainz Ooal Gown is so powerful that everyone in the new world fears him. Could Overlord's Ainz Ooal Gown beat Goku? What if he confronts Goku in a one-on-one battle?
Although Overlord and Dragon Ball are different anime, fans have always compared the two main characters.
Power levels are different, and the universes in which they exist are distinct, but do you ever wonder who will triumph over the other?
Please keep in mind that this article will only compare the abilities demonstrated by both characters in their respective shows. It is up to the creators to decide who will win between Ainz and Goku.
Could Ainz Beat Goku?
Ainz Ooal Gown is known to be the master of all sorcery in Overlord. He knows over 718 magical spells that he can use against any of his opponents.
Even spells he is unfamiliar with can backfire on his opponents because he can easily learn them.
In terms of PVP abilities, Ainz excels at ambushing his opponents. He doesn't let his battles drag on because his stats and abilities can't keep him going if things get tough.
On the other hand, Ainz overcomes his weakness by being well-prepared with various information against his opponents.
At times, he also employs world-level items to gain an advantage in battle.
The most dangerous aspect of Ainz is his ability to cast instant death magic.
From his favorite spell, Grasp Heart, to his AoE instant death spell, Cry of the Banshee, to The Goal of All Life is Death, Ainz can be very ruthless towards his opponents.
Ainz can also be extremely dangerous when he uses his Time Stop spell.
He can also use Dimensional Lock to disable his opponent's teleportation abilities. His Reality Slash spell can also pierce through any magical defenses.
Son Goku, on the other hand, is known to wield power far beyond that of other anime characters. The only certainty is that his power level exceeds 9000!
Would Ainz have a chance against Goku now that he is stronger than ever?
To be fair, let us compare them in three scenarios. The first round would be an unprepared battle between Ainz and Goku.
The second round would reveal all of their abilities to them. Ainz would be able to use world-level items in the third round, and Goku would be able to use his bloodlust.
Ainz would easily defeat Goku in the first round. It is primarily due to their personality and character. Ainz is the polar opposite of Goku, who stands and watches as his enemies grow stronger in preparation for a challenge.
Ainz would immediately cast an instant death spell on Goku, obliterating him. Unlike Goku, he is the type of character who will not hesitate to kill his opponents.
The second round will be more exciting. Now that Ainz and Goku are aware of each other's abilities, they will be extra cautious when revealing their trump cards, strengths, and weaknesses.
As much as we wanted Ainz to win, Goku would come out on top in the second round. Goku would finish Ainz once he blitzed him.
If Ainz was given more time to prepare, Goku would almost certainly be Hax'd to death, leaving him even more defeated.
Goku would still be victorious in the third round. In a race against time, Goku would kill Ainz before he could cast his death spells or use his world-level items.
In any case, both characters have advantages and disadvantages. Their universes have both benefits and drawbacks.
Not only are their universes different, but so is their definition of power. Son Goku specializes in his physical prowess and limitless potential, whereas Ainz Ooal Gown specializes in magic spells.
At the end of the day, it is up to the creators to decide who will truly triumph!
So, who do you think will come out on top? Is it Goku or Ainz? You make the call!
