Darkness (漆黒) was one of the three strongest adamantite ranked adventurer teams of the Re-Estize Kingdom. Furthermore, they are also considered to be the most powerful adventurer party in the Re-Estize Kingdom. However, after declaring allegiance to the Sorcerer King, they abandoned that nation, becoming the first adamantite adventurer team of the Sorcerer Kingdom.


Ainz Ooal Gown decided to become a famous adventurer and live in a human city for a while. This was so that he could gather more information about the New World and its combatants. For that reason, he picked Narberal Gamma as his adventurer partner to accompany him during their journeys together. The group disguised themselves as adventurers under the names of Momon and Nabe. They also started their adventurer debut at E-Rantel and established it as their home base.

Darkness is an adventurer group consisting of only two members in the team. Though the team lacks a support type (divine) magic caster, they were able to still manage to achieve several astonishing feats in succession. They've also registered the Wise King of the Forest in the group's ranks right after Momon tamed it, and made it his pet and his mount. It only took the group around two months at most, since their debut in the Adventurer's Guild, to carry out various feats which quickly bolstered their reputation and spread throughout the Re-Estize Kingdom.

Darkness first triumphs over Zurrernorn.

Darkness debuted in E-Rantel, where they started off as copper class adventurers, the lowest rank. Their first job was to escort Nfirea Bareare to Carne Village along with the Swords of Darkness and help him gets some herbs from Tob Forest which they easily achieved. Along the way, the duo single-handedly mowed down a group of ogres headed for E-Rantel, and once inside the forest, Momon managed to tame the Wise King of the Forest.

Darkness was requested again by Lizzie Bareare, the grandmother of Nfirea to save his grandson from the unknown group, who kidnapped him. They went to E-Rantel's cemetery, and faced a mob of the undead, but managed to breakthrough. They met the two two instigators, ahero class warrior and an old necromancer, who were performing a death ritual. The duo managed to kill them and foil their plan before they set it in motion. For their part in saving the city, Momon and Nabe were promoted to mythril class adventurers.

Gathering of E-Rantel's Mythril Adventurer Teams.

Kralgra, Sky Wolf, Rainbow, and Darkness were summoned amid the mythril class adventurer groups of E-Rantel to discuss the appearance of the powerful vampire, Honyopenyoko. Momon insisted that Darkness would fight against Honyopenyoko alone, arguing that if others became involve in the fight will only increase the number of victims. Sky Wolf and Rainbow accept his suggestion while Kralgra ignored his advice and chose to follow which resulted in the groups demise.

The battle with the vampire ended with Momon successfully killing the vampire in an intense battle. The Adventurer's Guild later examined the aftermath of the battle and came to the conclusion that he had truly vanquished the vampire. Darkness was then promoted again this time to adamantite class adventurers, the highest adventurer rank attainable. They became the third adamantite class adventurer party in the Kingdom. They became extremely famous and this allowed them to monopolize all mythril class quests in E-Rantel.

The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc

To prepare for the annual war, Crown Prince Barbro suggested that the Royal Army conscript the adventurers, especially the adamantite adventurer group, Darkness. Baron Cheneko supported the idea wholeheartedly. Due to his enthusiasm, King Ramposa III gave him the mission of recruiting Darkness to the Kingdom's cause. Cheneko failed in his mission, as Nabe rebuffed him stating Momon was on a solo mission.

During the Sorcerer King's procession into the newly conquered city of E-Rantel, Momon defended a young boy and his mother before the cortège. While Albedo was prepared to execute the upstart, the Sorcerer King, impressed at the hero's defiance, relayed orders to Albedo and coerced the adamantite adventurer into servitude lest there would be a massacre of the remaining humans within the city. Outnumbered and seeing no alternative, Momon accepted the term, swearing Darkness to become subordinate to the Sorcerer King and responsible for killing any rebels. It was thanks to this that the inhabitants of E-Rantel remained passive under their new monstrous king, refusing to rebel, lest they tarnish Momon's reputation.

The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom Arc

Main article: The Paladin of the Holy Kingdom Arc

The exploits of Darkness had reached the Roble Holy Kingdom. However, some pieces of information were distorted, causing others like the Holy Kingdom's envoys to misinterpret it. For instance, the battle in Re-Estize against Jaldabaoth, who they presumed to be a medium level demon was defeated by an adamantite adventurer made Remedios believe that she can beat him too.

When emissaries from the Holy Kingdom Liberation Army came to Re-Estize, they learned of the exact details concerning Darkness from Blue Roses. Remedios thought Momon within the group must have use some sort of special item to defeat him, but Evileye, a witness of his battle with Jaldabaoth denied such claim. Gustav then intervened into the conversation, questioning if Darkness could've exploited Jaldabaoth's weaknesses and Evileye believes it is possible, but doubtful.

While the Liberation Amy intended to recruit Momon to fight against the Demon Emperor Jaldabaoth, their request was rejected by the Sorcerer King. The Sorcerer King, Ainz Ooal Gown declared to the envoys that this is because Momon's presence is needed in E-Rantel, so he could maintain the city's peace as its enforcer.


Darkness was said to be the most powerful and strongest adventurer party among the three groups in the Re-Estize Kingdom. This was evident enough for other adventurers to see in Momon as someone, who has reach the pinnacle of humanity. Currently, Darkness is the only known adamantite adventurer group to hold their own against very powerful monsters with a difficulty level of 150 to 200.

With only a warrior and a magic caster, it is thought to be next to impossible to resolve the many dangerous incidents that they are capable of resolving.

Also, Evileye herself closely estimated that both Momon's and Nabe's strength are the work of inhuman feats, believing them to be God-kin, who have the blood of a player. Out of all the warriors Evileye has came across in her lifetime, she concluded that he is the strongest warrior by far.
