The Overlord Series sports quite a few spells — for those Magic users among you — that differ from game to game. Here's a quick overview:

Overlord & Raising Hell Edit

In Overlord there are many different spells — 12 are possible total of 16 — which you can collect in the form of "statues" during your adventures. There are four types: Fire, Domination, Minion and Shield. Each type comes with three different levels of power, found throughout the world. The third level depends on how evil your Overlord is when the spell is collected.

Overlord II Edit

In Overlord II the spells are handled differently. There are only four spells: Lighting Whip, Evil Presence/Target, Halo and Minion. How they work depends on your level of Alignment (Destruction\Domination) and the later three can be upgraded (from level 1 to 5) using Spell Catalysts [1],since the spell stones from the dark tower have been destroyed with the explosion of the tower heart.

Lighting Whip Edit

  • The Overlord already knows this spell, as he did so already as Overlord, see Evil Presence. The Lightning Whip can kill small creatures such as vermin, birds, and Gnomes in a single strike.

OL2 Icon Spell Target Target Edit

  • Description: Initially the spell is useful for slowing down targets, but as you become more powerful the spell leans more towards your chosen Tyranny aspect.
  • The Domination aspect spreads the spell's energy over multiple targets; making it easier to slow enemies and subdue the masses.
  • The Destruction aspect focuses the spell's energy on a single target; making it more deadly and possible to kill targets quickly.

Note: By upgrading it to each level, the more beams of the spell will appear, e.g. Level 5 - 5 beams, which allows you to enslave e.g. five peasants, if they are near the one you dominate.

  • Location: Nordberg Sanctuary, dropped by the Empire soldiers near the bridge to the sanctuary.

OL2 Icon Spell Minion Halo Edit

  • Description: When the spell begins to charge:
  • The Domination aspect boosts all minions with an offensive and protective enchantment.
  • The Destruction aspect unleashes a mighty earth-shattering shockwave which damages nearby enemies and knocks them back.

OL2 Icon Spell Halo Minion Edit

  • Description: You will grab the closest minion to you and the spell will begin to charge:
  • The Domination aspect channels the spell's power into a single minion imbuing it with dark energy. Releasing the spell before the minion is overcome with power turns it into a minion missile! The minion will gain a speed bonus as it shoots towards the nearest target and explodes. The type of explosion depends on the type of minion used:
    • OL2 Icon Browns — Knock back+Massive damage
    • OL2 Icon Reds — Fire damage
    • OL2 Icon Greens — Poison damage
    • OL2 Icon Blues — Magical stun
  • The Destruction aspect channels the spell's power into a single minion eventually destroying it. Sacrificing a minion in this way transfers some of its life energy to the Overlord's own health pool; in addition to enveloping the Overlord in a temporary damage reducing shield.

Overlord: Dark Legend Edit

In Overlord: Dark Legend, the Overlord can collect 'Spell Relics', which grant him several Spells throughout the course of the game.

Energy Spike - The First Spell Relic retrieved, identical in effect to the Fourth Overlord's Lightning Whip Spell. It fires a bolt of destructive lightning directly at your foes.

Shield - The Second Spell Relic, identical to the Third Overlord's Shield Spell. It protects the Overlord and any nearby Minions in a shield of energy, reducing damage from enemies.

Slow - The Third Spell Relic, identical to the Third Overlord's Slow Spell. It reduces the movement and attack speed of approaching enemies, allowing you to dispatch them at a more leisurly pace.

Frenzy - The Fourth Spell Relic, identical to the Third Overlord's Berserk Spell. It Causes the Minion Horde to power up and scatter in a whirlwind of destruction, attacking everything in sight.

Chain Lightning - The Fifth Spell Relic, an upgraded version of the Energy Spike Spell. A single cast will strike the nearest foe before arcing to other enemies in the vicinity.

Petrify - The Sixth Spell Relic, an upgraded version of the Slow Spell. It Freezes enemies where they stand for a short period of time.

Power Drain - The Seventh Spell Relic, which allows the Overlord to gain a portion of health back, relative to the damage dealt to a single foe.

Transmogrify - The Final Spell Relic in the game. It allows the Overlord to temporarily transform an approaching enemy into a sheep, in order to attack them with greater ease, or simply for amusement.

Overlord: Minions Edit

Overlord: Minions doesn't use spells.
