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.

This story is so delicious I wish I could eat it.

The translations are amazing, the story is funny, and I love both MC & ML. Sometimes, I just wanna read a story where the MC transmigrated into a villain and tried to act or become a villain. Although MC wasn't like a real villain, he still put up an act, I love it so much.

This was the first ‘zerg’ novel I've read, and it was because of this book, that I got hooked into reading more ‘zerg’ novels. MC looked... more>> as if he didn't love ML, but the truth is, he was also obsessed with ML.. And the fact that the MC is top???? Spectacular, give me fourteen of 'em right now. <<less

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 imp**gnate 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

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

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

Honestly, one of the best novel I ever read !

I really like how healthy their couple is and how respectful the Lu Mo is toward Ling (at least in his mind).

Lu Mo (Mc_"Gong") : Green flag

Ling (Ml_"Shou") : Red flag core trying to be a green flag


The extras were delightful, especially the one with young ling and the one with their kids. The kids were so cute (>A<)

this novel had one of my favorite tropes, if you also enjoy when MC try to act mysterious or cool (here cold) when in reality he is just acting but the villains fall for it and keep thinking he is playing 40d chess with them, then you will love this novel, I wish there was more

Love the story. The MC and ML were truly sweet and passionate with each other. The plot built up well and the villains had an interesting twist. ML was a perfectly crazy, loving partner. MC was a hard working, sweet pretend scum *laugh*. The MC grew through efforts that created humor and the system at least moderately backed him up. The so called protagonist was just a charmer with looks.

MC starts out fragile but fully metamorphosis by end. I was only confused about what happened to the human MC. I didn't understand why MC became human again and then returned to being a zerg? Nothing was mentioned about if his human self was still alive at the end or how long ML spent on earth with human MC.

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

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.

It's important to leave my review here because of how much I loved this novel.

the MC here is very unique and funny, he is not the type to dominate by force... no no actually he is also domineering and forceful but it is very funny... he does it because of the system, he is tr*sh what's funny, MC is very cute...

i also like ml... ML is a yandere, he's famous for being cruel but yeah, I just laughed reading this novel.. that's really why I like romance comedy novels... nothing... more>> too serious.. the antagonist role will even entertain you... if you are here don't hesitate to read it... read it you won't regret it... <<less

Overall good but sometimes an awkward read. It seemed like some sentences were inadvertently missed during the translation process leading to abrupt interactions. Or it could be due to the author's style since several times I'd have to recheck the previous chapter number after reading the first couple of sentences of the next chapter since it seemed disconnected.

MC, Lu Mo, is likable and so is ML, Ling. However, ML does have a dark, possessive streak but MC unwittingly soothes him each time.

... more>>

At the start of the story, MC had transmigrated three years ago. He needs to increase his scum value to return to his world. However, although he tries over and over again to increase his scum value, it has not worked out since he is a rare male Zerg. The Zerg culture is extremely tolerant and forgiving of male Zergs since they are desperately needed to ensure the survival of the Zerg race. The female to male ratio is 100:1.

ML happens to crash into MC's home and pass out. MC decides to marry ML as his female monarch and not have any other wives. Male Zergs are allowed three wives and countless attendants and s*aves. By having only one wife, MC will increase his scum value since he would be neglecting his civic duty to procreate as much as possible.



As the story goes on, MC levels up from a low level D male to a high level A male. This happens quickly with the help of the System since increased scum level gives rewards. However, time and again, MC loses his scum points due to unexpected turnarounds, leading to Zergs viewing him positively which deducts his scum points.



Later on MC discovers the reason for the male Zerg population decline... a conspiracy led by the Zerg Queen and Zerg Emperor. MC kills the queen and the emperor is imprisoned. The new emperor is enthroned, reforms are set in motion to increase the rights of Zerg females and sub-females, and the problem with the low male birth rate is resolved.

MC ends up leveling up to SS grade by the end of the novel.

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.
