Orcs (オーク Ōku?) are a race in the manga Delicious in Dungeon.

Appearance and Biology[edit | edit source]

Orcs are fairly broad in build, with porcine features such as a snout-like nose and tusks.[citation needed] They have a different number of toes to tall-men.[1]

They appear to use scent to identify people.[2] Tall-men apparently have a different scent to orcs.[1]

Culture[edit | edit source]

The chief orc in a tribe of orcs appears to take multiple wives.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Orcs are generally reviled and feared by other races as they are seen as pillagers.[4][5] Due to their people having been slaughtered and their land stolen from them by tall-men and elves,[6] they feel great animosity towards any tall-man or elf they come across.[7] When driven from the surface they moved into caves, but their caves were lit on fire,[4] so groups of them relocated into dungeons.[8]

Known Orcs[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Orcs have a different standard of beauty to humans[3] and consider elves to be ugly.[11]
  • They have nicknames for the different races: elves are 'long-ears' (耳長 miminaga?)[12], dwarves are 'depth-dwellers' (地底人 chisokojin?), half-foots are 'midgets' (小人 kobito?) and tall-men are 'long-legs' (足長 ashinaga?).[13]
  • They keep chickens.[10]
