The Exceed (十六種族(イクシード), Ikushīdo) or Ixseed refers to the 16 sentient races of Disboard whom the Ten Pledges apply to. They are ranked based on their affinity to magic.

No mixing across races is observed in Disboard. The top 6 races are regarded as "Life" (生命, Seimei) and "Living beings" while the bottom 10 races are regarded as "Creatures" (生物, Seibutsu) and "Living things". The split between the top 6 and bottom 10 races represent the difference between heaven and earth, as the "Life" are vastly more powerful than the "Creatures". All races were created by the Old Deus, except Imanity.
