Demon King Academy Delsgade (魔王学院デルゾゲード Maō Gakuin Deruzogēdo?) is an educational institution that gathers those who had inherited the blood of the Demon King of Tyranny and raises them to become Demon Lords, the ones responsible for governing the demons.


Its ultimate purpose is to find and welcome the reincarnation of the Demon King of Tyranny. However, the academy also plays a role in selecting demons who are deemed worthy to govern the different areas of Dilhade in his absence. Because a handful of this year's incoming students are very promising, they are called the Chaos Generation, among which there are many who could potentially be the reincarnated demon king.[1]

The building is the former Demon King Castle Delsgade, where the Demon King of Tyranny once lived. After his death, it was repurposed into the academy. Because the castle is still the same, Anos can use the spell Delsgade to summon it. If there are students inside when this happens, a replica created through Iris appears to take its place. Most students won't notice the switch unless they have good Magic Eyes.[2]


  • Entrance Exam: In order to enroll in Delsgade, one has to pass the magic power assessment and aptitude test. But before they can do so, they must first pass a practical test. Candidates must win against five opponents in the arena, where they are permitted to use any weapons and gear of their convenience. In addition, members of the royalty have special privileges such as choosing their opponent and having outsiders help them.
  • Team Exam: A test that determines how well students can use Gyze. Two teams face off against each other, and the battle lasts until the "king" of one side is taken out or they can no longer maintain Gyze.
  • Dungeon Exam: Students form groups to explore the dungeons beneath the castle and bring back any magical tools, armor, or weapons they find to earn points. Any item obtained in the dungeon belongs to the group leader.
  • Gairadite Expedition Test: Students have 10 days to reach the human capital of Gairadite from the Demon King Academy, or they fail and won't be able to participate in the academy exchange. Directions are not given to the students, so they can any route of their choosing.
  • Inter-Academy Exam:

  • Greater Magic Class: A special lecture taught by Ivis Necron about Great Magic to help students understand the depths of magic better.
  • Great Demon Sword Training: Training to get students ready for the Demon Sword Tournament, since the students that are chosen will have to compete against people who are more experienced and skilled than them.
  • Swordsmanship Training: A training lesson given by Shin Reglia about swordsmanship.[3]
  • Lost Magic Lesson: Students use the magic Gatom to teleport to Gairadite.[4]

  • Demon Sword Tournament: A tournament that decides Dilhade's top swordsman. Swordsmen from all over Dilhade come here to prove themselves, and the winner earns renown.
  • Academy Exchange: Students under Menou Historia will attend the Hero Academy for a class exchange.

Notable Places


Main article: Arena

The Arena

The location where the practical exams and the Demon Sword Tournament where held at. It's the perfect place to assess one's combat capabilities, or to just spectate skilled fighters.

Union Towers

The Union Towers

There are a number of towers on the grounds of Delsgade, and some of them are provided as places for union activities, where students on campus engage in common hobbies and interests. In other words, it's a place for student clubs to gather.

Enchanted Forest

Main article: Enchanted Forest

The Forest

A training ground for students, the inter-team battle exams are taken here. Because of its vast space and restorative properties, students can go all out here.


Dungeon Entrance

Students come here for the dungeon exam. The founder's scepter is found in the lowest floors, but no students or even teachers have made it that deep.

Uniform and Badge

There are two types of uniforms, black and white. Students who wear black are honor students, the pure-blood demons. Honor students are exempt from the entrance exam, though still having to participate in the practicals. After the Demon King Ceremony, the system of white uniforms for mixed-blooded demons and black uniforms for the imperial families was abolished, and students were able to freely choose their uniforms. There was an opinion to abolish white uniforms and black uniforms, but Anos decided to leave this uniform, which was divided into two demons, as a commandment.[5]

The badge shows the results of the magic power and aptitude exam. The more lines and vertices one has, the better they did. The cross badge that Anos possesses means "Misfit", the person furthest away from a demon king. Anos is the first one to be branded a misfit ever since the foundation of the academy.
