Prior to relocating to Tempest, Vesta served as the head of Dwargo’s engineering corps, a position he assumed after the resignation of its former head, Kaijin. While he is initially antagonistic to Rimuru and Kaijin, over the course of the series he becomes a valuable asset.

The king of the Armed Nation of Dwargon, Gazel Dwargo is Rimuru’s most trusted and capable political ally. He is regarded as a wise and fair king, as evinced by his just rule and Dwargon’s political, trade, and military power.

Gazel demonstrates his political acumen by his quick realization of Rimuru’s potential and the importance of establishing good relations with Tempest.

While Milim acts like a bored child, in reality she is an exceptionally intelligent and devious creature. Although it appears to lack purpose, her erratic behavior serves a dual purpose of both satisfying her need for stimulation and as a facade that keeps her enemies and allies off-balance, which gives her an upper hand in most situations.

As one of the oldest True Demon Lords, Milim possesses years of experience in statecraft and combat. Despite her distaste for politics, she is no fool and frequently makes calculated moves to give her the advantage in negotiations and battle. When she challenges Carrion to a duel, she makes sure to give his people plenty of time to evacuate the country so as to not inflict too much collateral damage, which serves to also strip Carrion of his most powerful and trusted allies.

Over the course of the series, Rimuru grows from a hard-working but naive slime monster to the leader of a rich and powerful nation. Even ignoring his Great Sage Skill, Rimuru is still one of the most powerful and intelligent characters in the show, and he is slowly honing his statecraft and diplomacy skills.

He is very enterprising and manages to create profitable trade deals with Dwargon and other surrounding nations. Rimuru is also a gifted strategist, which he demonstrated in his effective counterattack against the army of the Kingdom of Falmuth. Rimuru still has much to learn, but with his skills and allies, he could easily become the wisest character in the series.

3 Veldora Tempest Is An Ancient Dragon With Unfathomable Knowledge

While he has only just reappeared in the anime, it’s certain that he’ll play a larger role in the story going forward.

2 Diablo Is A Demon Primordial Who Has Spent Eons Studying The World And Magic

Diablo is introduced near the end of the first part of season 2, so fans of the anime have yet to learn about his capabilities. However, based upon his brief appearance, it’s obvious that Diablo is now Rimuru’s most powerful and brilliant subordinate.

In his impressive fight against Razen (one of the best fights of the series), Diablo demonstrates a comprehension of magical techniques that rivals the abilities of a Demon Lord. As a Primordial Demon, he has existed since the beginning of time, and over those thousands of years, he is certain to have acquired vast amounts of knowledge.
