Overlord Wiki
"There's the scoundrel! The lady Juno was to be mine. We had an understanding. But you took her and now you shall feel the crushing boot of the Empire upon you!"
— The Gargantuan Empire General.

The Empire General is an enemy encountered in the Overlord II DLC, the Battle Rock. He appears only after the Overlord has acquired Juno as a Mistress by taking over Everlight Town.


The General has the hulking stature of a Gargantuan, albeit with more ornamental armour including a distinct shoulder plate shaped like a lion, a Centurion-like head, a large lion-crest shield and a large wide-tipped sword like a Gargantuan's.

Unlike other Gargantuans, the General possesses a degree of intellect and tactical ability, enough that he can command troops on the field and even have fortifactions built from stone in the Netherworld as compared to flimsy wooden fortifcations made by a previous insurrection of Nordberg hunters.

Despite being a high-ranking member of the magic-hating Glorious Empire, the General displays either the ability or the willingness to make use of magic to erect a small barrier that keeps out Minions when confronted personally by the Fourth Overlord.

Battle Rock: Empire General[]

Seeking revenge for his loss of his supposed beloved, Juno, the Empire General has managed to launch an invasion on the Overlord's dark fortress. Accompanied by his army, he can be found within the Battle Rock arena.

The Empire General - Round 1[]

Notice the General is on a tower surrounded by a blockade. Kill both troops and get the ballistas up. One ballista shoots explosives, and you must use this one to take out the barricade, and the other shoots bolts, which are good for killing soldiers surrounding the explosive ballista.

Then, go up and attack the General, unlike the other Gargantuans he doesn't not charge at you but instead he is protected from your minions by a barrier. In single combat, he behaves similarly to a normal Gargantuan. His normal attacks will not knock the Overlord down as with other Gargantuans, however, he is capable of blocking melee attacks with his shield. Dodge his attacks, knock him over and attack him again, after taking enough damage he will retreat, ending the round.

The Empire General - Round 2[]

This round is much of the same as the previous one and allows for the same tactics, save for the presence of archers that can hit stationary Minions if given the chance as well as the General needing to be reduced to half-health before he runs off again.

The Empire General - Round 3[]

In this round, twice the numberof archers will fire at you from the towers and now use fire arrows that can kill undefended Minions, so you must take them out with either ballista. The barricade must be taken down with the explosive one. Do not yet leave the ballista, since more Empire troops with crossbows will emerge from one tower and can tear through a Minion horde if left untouched. Use the ballista to take them out, and then fight the General.

This time, at half-health, he will jump down and summon his troops to attack you while using similar attacks as a Gargantuan except that he will never run into walls and stun himself. Leave your minions to fend them off, and shoot him with the explosive ballista. While he is down, attack him and then repeat. Be careful to avoid his charge attack. Eventually, you will kill him.


  • Aside from his head, the General's hands, feet and other exposed bodyparts all bear the same bronze skin-tone as a common Gargantuan. This hints that the General, having taken part in the Empire's experiments, might have been a Centurion that had his head surgically grafted onto a Gargantuan's body, gaining great strength whilst maintaining his intelligence and tactical acumen. Since he is never seen without his obscuring armor, however, this is entirely speculation.

  • In his desperation for revenge, the General may have even undergone the modified procedure to aid in his battle against the Overlord.
