Walpurgis (魔王達の宴(ワルプルギス) Warupurugisu, lit. "Demon Lords' Banquet") is an event where all the demon lords who are part of the Ten Great Demon Lords, or later, the Octagram, gather. After proposing it, the approval of three demon lords of the council is needed to confirm and schedule it. A gathering of truly powerful individuals. Absentees have to be prepared to face severe consequences, as this is a covenant established between all the selfish established demon lords. In the eyes of humans, these happen really rarely and are hardly mentioned in human literature, however, there are many instances of Walpurgis gatherings that the humans were simply not aware of due to no impactful decisions being made, as many of the demon lords just regard the gathering as some sort of regular tea party, though in those instances there might actually be several absentees which are treated much more leniently in those cases.

The Walpurgis Banquet, in the eyes of the human nations, is typically associated with the beginning of a Great Holy Magic War. The last one being over a thousand years ago and resulted in a myriad of casualties and great calamities. Thus, it is commonly known as the banquet that brings chaos and destruction into the lands.

Demon lords are only allowed to bring 2-3 subordinates. There is a reason for this restriction. A long time ago, there were demon lords who would bring over a hundred individuals to flaunt their power. Some had their countries reduced to ash so came seeking to be annihilated. So, they decided that they had to bring someone of at least a low-class Majin ranking. According to the now ruined demon lords, they had always brought high ranking devils, but no one can confirm that and such reports have been ignored.

The seating order around the round table was decided based on the order in which one became demon lords.
