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. Still engrossed in the memories of the past, he takes the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown before heading to the throne room. On the way he ordered Sebas and his battle maids to follow and met Albedo there. After checking her setting Momonga (on a whim) changed it to fall in love with him as its originally setting created by Tabula was that she was an absolute "bitch". Momoga closed his eyes to await the forced logout by server but realized something was wrong since he was still in the game. He discovers, to his astonishment that his servants have developed their own personalities and can be directly communicated with. Albedo, in particular begins exhibiting the personality traits based on the settings Momonga had set, much to his shock. Momonga attempts to test the limits of this new discovery but is forcefully calmed down before he could do a thing. Dazed at all that has occurred, Momonga orders Albedo to call every guardian except 4th and 8th floor to meet him in the Arena floor.

S01 E04Jul 28, 2015
Ruler of Death Jul 28, 2015 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 convice 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.

Wise King of Forest Aug 18, 2015 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 revealed 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. Upon meeting the beast, Momon immediately recognizes it as a Djungarian Hamster, a species that one of his guildmates kept as a pet back in Yggdrasil. Noting how much of a disappointment that 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 instead opts to make the King his servant. Naming the Wise King Hamsuke, Momon introduces Hamsuke to the Swords of Darkness who are in awe over it's 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.
