The Five Great Sages of the Present Age (Japanese: 近代の五大賢者 Romaji: kindai no go dai kenja; abbreviated as the Five Great Sages, translated as the Five Wise Men of the Age in the dub by Central Park Media) are a group of some of the most powerful human individuals known to the general populace in the Slayers world. This is the only reason they are mentioned together; there are no details about them having anything in common except power and fame. The only one of the five known to be still alive is Luo Graon.
Two members of the group are known currently:
- Rezo the Red Priest (deceased during the course of the Slayers series)
- Luo Graon (known to be alive)
Two, similarly powerful individuals are claimed to belong to this group, but official material does not list them as such:
- Lei Magnus (inactive, frozen in ice - he is mentioned as a "legendary great sage" instead)
- Shazard Lugandy
