After Transmigrating Into a Villain Cannon Fodder Male Zerg


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

After Lu Mo transmigrated into a Zerg novel, he was asked to play a cannon fodder male zerg and to never act OOC.

The original owner was ruthless, had a low IQ, and was very lazy!

Lu Mo executed each request ruthlessly, and after looking at the female’s increasingly numb face, his heart was full of guilt and pain.

I’m really sorry that you met a scum like me!!!

Previously, he had thought the female zerg already had a broken heart and had woken up from his dream; that from then on, he would give up his illusions, face reality, and become a calm and rational zerg. Although Lu Mo’s heart ached, he was still very dedicated to his work and would never be soft hearted.

But when the female zerg rolled around the room while holding a quilt and calling for him, red-faced—Lu Mo couldn’t help but feel a thud in his heart.

What the hell! How could this be!


Ling had never seen such a strange male zerg.

The male said that he hated him, but gave him an egg.

The male cursed him for being weak and useless, but gave him freedom.

The male never said that he loved him, but he never glanced at other females.

Ling was confused and at loss.

His friend slammed the table: Wasn’t this just being tsundere?!

Ling had a sudden realization!

That’s it!

The male master was indeed a very good zerg.

Three years later.

Lu Mo looked at Ling with a despairing expression : “Whatever. Just destroy it, hurry up. ”

So weird! How did his scum setting collapse!!!

Gong who is mistaken for a tsundere X Shou who is really a yandere but doesn’t know it.

The novel was a fun read hahahaa anyways Ml's been really tryin hard to be a scum, so his words are sometimes harsh though the outcome was not the goal that he wants, Zerg's have diff mindset😂 he's been brainstorming with the system how to get scummy points hahaha anyways it might be that way but Ling notice Ml's good pts behind his scum mask so he just goes along with ml's skit hahah

ML gave Ling the love and security that he needs at the same time Ling touched Ml's... more>> heart. Ml's head over heels over ling hahaha nobodyy is more prettier/cutest than his wife. There's twist here and there and small part of past experiences. Happy ending for this crossworld lovers^^ really like Ling who is strong and open haha and of course who dont want a doting ML?? + Tsudere on this one haha <<less

Read up the the TLs and went to binge raws, very satisfying and sweet to the end with just a little bit of knives for drama. I’m so happy with the MC and ML and even System, I just wished the author gave us extras to show us what happened to the characters after the story!! Otherwise I love~

Hmm so I actually enjoyed reading this, the pacing wasn't too rushed or too slow.

It was a lighthearted read nothing too serious if you don't think deeply. Easy Mtl.

... more>>

Honestly I would hate to be born in the novel, but an interesting plot noneless.

There is definitely talks/contexts of sexism and misogyny of the gender dynamics. Hard to avoid that since it's based on the premise of males being extremely important.

The MC is hilarious at some points, he's a softy on the inside and tsundere on the outside.

For the ML I think the summary is kinda off the mark. In the summary it says a "Shou who is really a tsundere but doesn't know it" yeah no. He's a yandere. The guy was bout to off anyone who approaches his man, and he has a book (?) Or peice of paper (?) That literally scribbles the MCs name repeatedly, saying he's mine, he's mine x10+ so yeah.

It's hilarious seeing the MC interact with other males, cause he learns that even if he bullies females he won't get points so instead he bullies the males lol. It's like if he acts like a villain to Females he loses scum points but earns points from acting like a villain to males.

One of my fav parts

When MC says he see males and females as the same, and then they're like really??? The females were like yeah I want to be equal to! And then he laughs and says yeah they're both tr*sh, tr*sh and tr*sh are equal. And so he earns so many scum points.

And I like how MC actually makes his own money, all the other males be taking money from the females they married :/

I loved reading this. So much fluff between this pair of Tsundere and Yandere🤣.

The funny thing is Lu Mo becomes a genuine Tsundere after acting as such for so long. LOL.

The babies were cute too!


The male one had Lu Mo's personality and he's a chunnibyou. The female one had Ling's personality liked putting his male sibling into place🤣.

They also had a third child.

He was conceived in Earth. And Lu Mo was in a human body. Ling became a fan of Superman there and almost named their third child Superman🤣

Binged this in a day after reading the currently translated chapters. A good read with interesting subversions of typical character tropes, such as the ice-cold, possessive male yandere gong (the shou is the yandere here and he's actually quite mischievous). The MC receives a task from a system to go to this zerg world and collect scum points. There's no such thing as "OOC" really unlike what the summary suggests. It's just that the MC (makes a valiant attempt to) stick to his crafted character setting in order to gather... more>> as many scum points as possible.

Actually, the summary itself is an inaccurate representation of the novel, and the author herself has stated near the end that her story went way off the rails from when she initially wrote the summary.

The story is more of a himedere (y'know those noble girls in anime who have that ohohoho laugh) MC who tries to act as scummy as possible to gain scum points but has a kind heart so he ends up seeming like a tsundere instead. Somewhere along the way, he bumbles into the main plot completely unintentionally and is dragged into all the hidden conflict brewing in the background. Also, since the zergs have a vastly different worldview, what he thinks is him acting scummy is just endearing to everyone else LOL.

The ML, as mentioned before, is a yandere, and also the military commander to the third division of the zerg army. Almost right off the bat he's already fond of the MC due to a funny misunderstanding of the previously said "vastly different worldview" of the zergs and of the ML's own situation. MC thinks he's acting like a cannon fodder scum by forcibly snatching the protagonist's (yeah there's one in this story) woman, but the protagonist, due to how their society has a declining birthrate of males, has a harem, and ML is a special subspecies of zerg who are super possessive over their mates. Naturally, he gets a little crazy over having to share his man, and MC's words of "making you mine", "don't think you can run away" and "there won't be anyone else but you, so don't even try to escape" that he thinks are scummy actually hit the ML's sweet spot and makes him fall for him instead.

I really like how the ML (who is the shou, remember) isn't weaker or more feminine than the MC. In fact, for pretty much the entire novel, the MC is the shorter, weaker and less traditionally "manly" one. Subverting tropes yes please. The ML isn't afraid to seduce the MC and go after what he wants, and the MC is usually the one flustered and yelling "shameless! You lecherous female!" etc etc. BTW, there are no women in the zerg society, and all zerg have male bodies with gender roles being divided up into males being the ones who can impregnate females, and who are smaller and weaker than females so are usually protected; females, who can lay eggs and have children and are the traditionally manly men, stronger than males; and subfemales, who are basically females but weak and also the lowest rung of society. I think they are also infertile too.

Just a warning and mild spoiler, there is mpreg, or eggpreg, I'm not sure about the proper term to use here. But it only happens in the extras and there's no traditional pregnancy.

The ML is mentioned to have a slight bump on his stomach, and then he lays eggs (only mentioned, not described) and then the eggs hatch into their children. That's all. <<less

To be honest I'm not the type that would read MTL just because the synopsis is good. Much less when there wasn't even one chapter that was translated.



... more>> This was just that good. It's so wholesome. The ending and extras was really a good finish.

I'm a satisfied reader.

Although there was some parts that got me weirded out. It's just because it's MTL and the story's about Zergs and 'eggs' and all is male! And Main roles are reversed. Like the Shou is more powerful then the Gong. But! It was a good take. Different perspective! Kinda reminds me of 'Counterattack of a White Lotus that was Reborn into an Apocalypse'.

Very good.

Thank you. Author.

It heals the soul.

I can only say Lu Mo and Ling are meant to be together. And they achieved their happy ending.

It didn't leave a "I want more" feeling but a "I'm satisfied" feeling.

This is a good read. Try it. Don't leave out the extras LOL😂 <<less

Its very good, MTL is easy, MC unbeknowingly gains everybody's like and trust. Its funny when he asks himself if his personality has changed after pretending for so long.

MC is usually not on the same page as everybody else, but he manages well. ML is dashing and cool, loves MLs pretense of never letting him go, and returns this dedication ... more>>

, MC is basically "saved" by this behavior when ML breaks the glass between them (im looking back on this in 2023, might be a different story?)



The near end is cute when MC says he wants to live in a fake fantasy if Ling is not in the real truth, but the end is a bit unsatisfying IMO I wouldve loved a few fanwais/extras.


Cute story, go ahead to MTL! (Bug and insect mean zerg) <<less

Pretty sure I was only mtl'ing this one a short while back, so colour me surprised when I see someone's picked it up!

Take what I say with a grain of salt - my memory's not the best and I wasn't reading anything well-translated, as this is already turning out to be (good job!) - but I really enjoyed reading this.

I hope you will, too!

As Asdfg said, the ML is... possessive. But it's well managed and, to be honest, our MC's personality actually meshes with it nicely. Good dynamics despite the... more>> whole

ML being a rare and sought-after subrace of Zerg, leading to the problem of their first male opponent


I can't quite remember where I got up to

I have a feeling it was just after the second big-shot was introduced, sending an agent to seduce MC who obliviously tried to raise his scum value but ended up finding (and freeing) a female trapped in a cell on the ground of his new home... what a sentence.


But I look forward to reading further here. Good luck! <<less

Such a good read. Very easy to MTL also, but everyone should read the extras too 'till ch92 since I feel like it adds more to the story and erases that 'abrubt ending' thoughts.

Note: If anyone's interested in the link, just pm me or something.

MC got conned to act as a scumbag lol but everyone just thinks he's being coquettish lmao. One thing I was just mulling over when reading the novel tho, where is that butler at the very beginning? Was he left at that barren star or was he forgotten by the author haha I feel like it's the latter

😂😂 The MC was conned into holding the overbearing president script in a yandere novel so he accidentally filled ML's perfect mate criteria.

Ah, it's enjoyable this far. I'm gonna read ahead so tootaloo and thanks to the translator for making more readers know about this gem.

But one thing I don't like is that the author went off the rail too often and added long side stories with side characters who wouldn't appear much that usually spanned 3-4 chapters... I wish they'd just cut to the chase instead of wasting my... more>> time with pointless blabber. <<less

One of major humour comes from MC lack of knowledge/understanding about zerg culture.

Instead of being scummy like what the system asked of him, he became admired by the zerg instead.

I really like this type of misunderstanding.

But sometimes there are confusing parts because I don't understand zerg culture either haha.

The author did explain a lot about the zerg, but the culture seems to not really polished.

However it was okay if the story just wanted to focus on fluff.

... more>>

Just sometimes I felt like I need to be able to "read the room" but with zerg language to really understand the native zergs here, including the male lead.

It took a bit of the fun when you don't understand.


Overall this story is still very interesting and enjoyable to read.

So I'll give five stars minus one because of my own problem. <<less

Really good story, I like how the MC tries to be mean when he's just a little cutie, at some point people even start to think of him as a big shot when he's just trying to be a scum man. I also have a soft spot for yandere shou and story frome a male zerg point of view which still make "male" be the most important will at the same time "female" are way stronger. I really want to know more about MC's past and I think that maybe... more>> for once I won't wait for the translator's updates and start finish whith MTL because that's a really great story and I can't help but want to see more of this couple.

4'5 stars

I greatly enjoyed the story. The writing is quite refreshing and I liked the characters.

My only cons would be that at times the plot jumps out of nowhere and it leaves you feeling flabbergasted. I would have liked the plot to delve more in a few aspects. Also a con is that the story isn't finished if you don't read the extras. And they aren't even on MTL, I had to read them directly from Chinese (praise Google translate😭).

The story is sweet and fluffy but at the same time... more>> besides the main couple there aren't any complex characters. It's just that with a little polishing this story could have been 3 times greater, but alas it is a good read nonetheless.

Thanks to the author and translators. <<less

I had read 26 of translated chapters and the rest to the finished main story is Pure MTL. Thank god it was a Readable one!!! Because the story was soooo gooooood and I can't bear it without knowing how it end.

And now... I freaking NEED THE EXTRAS!!!

I'm Not Joking, this Novel is Really Really Good!!! Our GONG MC is ABSOLUTELY CUTE!!! Totally Adorkable and Precious!!! The way he did his mission while... more>> knowing his inner voice is just too funny and cute! He was truly like a Tsundere while we know that he is NOT a Tsundere one! MC's action remind me of a Spoiled little Prince at beginning. When he metamorphosed, his image get better though.

Our Shou ML is Yandere inside but never Cross any line whatsoever. Most his action remind me of many Doting 'Gong' ML I had ever read, but well, he's the Shou. Except on Intimacy scene, even when the scene written absolutely very vague, ML always 'wrecked'. (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

The dynamic with this Couple is, Our MC is Good with his Acting and words. His brain is also not bad, even though his Inner voice still forever funny! While ML is the Physical Power, but he never act impulsive so far. Not really at least because MC always unintentionally have a way to stop his bad thought.

This novel has lots of Faceslapping without the intention to Faceslap because MC just need his Scum point. Lol. The good part is half the time he's happy can trampled those annoying people while get more useful things. Lol


God I wish MTL site also have the extras.... (T⌓T) I want to known the aftermath of what happen. I wish I know Chinese...

I love this novel so much! Pray the translation would continue!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 <<less

STORY: So far, I've read 57 chapters and I feel like it's more focused on the relationship between Lu Mo & Ling and how they recognize their feelings for each other. There's some hints of a plot going on but considering that this novel is already completed and is only made up of 71 chapters (of the main story), the plot should've been already in the climax part by chapter 50+. But it's actually not. What really only made me continue to read was because I like the MC's character... more>> but it wasn't enough for me to stay because the plot, which should've greatly progressed, became boring and stagnant for me to bear. Also, it was a bit confusing at first when there are "female" and "male" zergs with the same body of a man and the only difference is that "female" zergs are capable of becoming pregnant. Welp, I know it's the world of the zergs, an entirely different species. Although eventually I got used to it as I read on, as a regular human with a different world view it's still somewhat weird to me.


    • Lu Mo (Gong/MC) - a moment of silence to Lu Mo's moral integrity. He's like a lowkey M, always begging to be killed. I get that his mission is to earn scum points but still it's funny how he's actually looking forward to be slapped in the face by the OG protagonist & Ling. I'm not usually fond of reading novels where the MC is a seme/gong but I really like how the author portrayed Lu Mo's character. On the surface, he's a domineering, possessive, whimsical "scum" that always acts out of the norm but inside, he's actually always praying to buddha and all the gods every morning to pardon his sins. It's also hilarious how Ling and the other characters always seem to misunderstand that his scummy actions are either him just being coquettish like a cat acting all tough on the outside but actually just wants to be petted or him being a very noble male zerg who has very keen senses and observation skills.
    • Ling (shou) - He's a very possessive, yandere type of character. Unlike the common portrayal of shous as weak, more feminine & fragile beings in most novels, Ling is actually powerful, has a strong mentality (although crooked), can protect himself and ruthlessly fight & kill his enemies. The common setup in the majority of novels is that the gong is usually the one who's powerful, domineering, strong, badass, etc. While the shou is typically portrayed as weak, soft, naive, delicate, dependent on the ML, and can't protect himself. But in this story, Lu Mo (gong) and Ling (shou) actually have "reverse" roles which is like a fresh breathe of air. Lu Mo, although he grew taller after his metamorphosis and is considered really tall among the male zergs, is still smaller than Ling. Also, for the most part of the story, Ling is actually the more active one and Lu Mo is the somewhat shy one.
    • System - I love that the system is a troll sometimes and can be considerate and even worried about the MC at other times. It actually gives some pretty useful advices and is more helpful unlike the other systems from the other novels I've read
  • As for the other characters, it doesn't seem like they have much of a "character" at all. Maybe they could've but was forgotten by the author so they weren't "fleshed out." They all seem like they're just there to carry out certain roles for some scenes or be stepping stones for the main characters then once they've completed their roles, they get completely discarded by the author lol
SMUT: Sadly, there's no explicit smut scenes (as far as I've read at least). There's only mild NSFW.

I might reread this again some other time when I'm in the mood and reevaluate & edit my review but for now, I'll give it 4 stars <<less

A fun lighthearted crossing novel. There are plot holes, but they do not detract from the overall quality of the novel. My rating is a 4.5 so I rounded up. I can only wish there were more chapters.

... more>>

The final extras revealed that there may be some cross-compatibility between human and zerg. I can imagine some zerg fans ran off to marry some zerg or some human fans kidnapped some husbands or wives. It seems the author left humanity as an autonomous organization, but I imagine they would become somewhat asslimated with enough time.

Very2 good and cute story. However the ending is too abrupt. I want more 😭, shouldn't it be the shou pregnant and more sweet exchange of the protagonist. But seriously the MC (seme) is so funny and such a tsundere. While the shou is yandere. The interaction between system and MC is very funny. I like it.

This is one of those gems that you can't extricate from once you start reading. The interactions of MC and ML just makes one want to continue knowing how the story would turn out. They each have their own kinks that could have made a relationship hell if it was with someone other but put these two together makes sense. They unknowingly provide what the other person wants. The latter part of story is where things really take a turn. It does have one unexpected turn around that I didn't... more>> expect and somehow that made everything come in a flow... <<less
