The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody is a Japanese light novel series written by Myōjin Katō and illustrated by Sao Mizuno. An anime television series adaptation by Silver Link and Blade will premiere in April 2022. So yeah, we have another reincarnation story where a ‘typical nobody’ translates directly to ‘a stud who gets all the girls’ and is an ‘overpowered badass.’ I guess many people want to be a ‘typical nobody’ too… and unsurprisingly, fans are asking for more anime like The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody.
The most powerful being of all time, the Demon Lord Varvatos decides to reincarnate with average magical strength because he is bored with life. While the reincarnation as a commoner was successful, he is bound to learn that the quality of demons has dropped so drastically that even when he holds back, he is still too overpowered!
It doesn’t mean it won’t be enjoyable to watch, but just be aware that it uses the cliché formula mentioned above. If you dislike these kinds of storylines and this is your first time hearing about this anime, be warned.
Having said that, here are 10 anime like Shijou Saikyou no Daimaou, Murabito A ni Tensei suru (The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody).
10. The Fruit of Evolution
One day, a whole school full of students gets transported to a mysterious fantasy world with an RPG system.
One of them is Seiichi Hiragi, a high schooler bullied to hell and back for being fat and ugly. While everyone else was transported in groups, he was the only one secluded which caused him to end up in a different location. When he accidentally eats “the Fruit of Evolution,” his life as a successful champion begins!
The series is about an OP protagonist in a fantasy world where he is fawned over by multiple beautiful ladies like in The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody.

9. The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat
In this series, an old man who is known as the world’s greatest assassin dies and is reincarnated in a world of swords and magic where his skill set is needed to prevent the destruction of the world.
Both series include similar themes: an OP protagonist is reincarnated in another world where he is OP once again (high magical power) and he gets a harem filled with all sorts of beauties.
8. Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation
Mushoku Tensei is about a hopeless 34-year-old NEET who gets killed during a traffic accident and reincarnates in a fantasy world with his memories and intellect intact.
The overall feel of both anime is similar: the main character gets reincarnated in a fantasy world, has a high magical aptitude, ends up adventuring around the world, and attracts lots of cute girls.
7. Wise Man’s Grandchild
A recently deceased young man is sent to another world and is taught magic by master Merlin. He quickly masters everything he is taught. However, he has one fatal weakness—common sense.
Both series use the same cliché isekai tropes: an isekai’d protagonist is extremely OP to the point that everyone else looks like a joke compared to him. When he casts his OP magical spells with little no effort, everyone around him is SHOOK to see such power and prowess.
Overlord follows Momonga, a guy who gets stuck in a virtual reality game called Yggdrasil. With all NPCs suddenly developing personalities on their own, it’s now up to him to conquer this new world!
With the MC being an unrivaled ‘God’ in this fantasy world & ladies throwing themselves at him, it’s not hard to see why these two series are strikingly similar.
5. How Not to Summon a Demon Lord
Takuma Sakamoto is a shut-in gamer who is unmatched in an MMORPG game called Cross Reverie, having a gaming identity of the Demon King Diablo.
One day, he ends up summoned to a fantasy world with the appearance of the Demon King from Cross Reverie. The two beautiful ladies who summoned him then try to perform an Enslavement Ritual that backfires and the two become his slaves instead. After getting to know them a little, he decides to accompany them on a journey to unbind the slave contract.
How could we forget about Diablo? If you are looking for a show with an isekai’d OP protagonist who has a harem, you are gonna love this show!
4. The Irregular at Magic High School
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei follows the siblings, Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba, who are enrolled in First High School. Upon taking the exam, the prodigious Miyuki is placed in the First Course, while Tatsuya is relegated to the Second Course. Though his practical test scores and status as a “Weed” show him to be magically inept, he possesses extraordinary technical knowledge, physical combat capabilities, and unique magic techniques—making Tatsuya the irregular at a magical high school.
Did you like that Varvatos was unrivaled, handsome, and drawing people to him like a magnet? Did you enjoy those moments when he destroyed his assailants with no effort and ridiculed them with his overwhelming magical abilities? While The Irregular at Magic High School is not an isekai, it’s exactly about this. About an overpowered and cool protagonist who is exceptionally gifted in magic.
3. The Strongest Sage With The Weakest Crest
In this series, the world’s strongest sage will stop at nothing to get stronger—not even reincarnation!
This show is also an isekai series with an OP protagonist who has an exceptional magical aptitude. His companions are beautiful girls who are all “magically” drawn to him.
2. Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?
The show is about a cute girl who reincarnates in hopes of being average, which is her deepest wish. While her wish is granted, she still ends up being too OP in the new RPG-like world! Refusing to give up on the life she envisioned, she will try her utmost to hide her real power.
So let’s imagine that The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody has a more lighthearted version with the main trope being cute girls doing cute stuff. That’s Didn’t I Say to Make My Abilities Average in the Next Life?
1. The Misfit of The Demon King Academy
Anos, the Demon King of Tyranny has been through it all, from defeating humans, spirits, gods, and everything in between. After all the battles, he just wants to experience a more peaceful world and decides to reincarnate.
Fast forward 2000 years and he’s back in this world, but things are different now. The world’s become too peaceful and his descendants have lost their strength.
Like The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody, this anime has a protagonist who is the most powerful being in their world and reincarnates to the same world many generations later. But unlike his descendants, he still has immense power and magic abilities. At first, people underestimate him, but he always manages to surprise them with his strength. And of course, it’s a harem anime with lots of cute girls vying for the attention of the overpowered, handsome main character.
