I Am the Fated Villain

Description

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

Immediately after Gu Changge realized he had transgressed into a fantasy world, the world’s protagonist, and fortune’s chosen, vowed to take revenge on him. Envied by all, he not only has the female lead head over heels for him but he’s also treated as a distinguished guest wherever he goes. Fortunately, Gu Changge’s prestige and power are superior to everyone else’s, so shouldn’t it be easy to trample on a mere fortune’s chosen?

Hold on… There’s a system dedicated to milking and harvesting from the protagonist? Gu Changge smirked. “Seems like even fate wants me to fulfill my destiny as the Villain of this world!”

The story is about a villain putting down all the hypocritical xianxia protagonists... while acting like a hypocritical xianxia protagonist.

... kinda defeats the point, don't you think?

Instead of a reincarnation, regressor, or super-special-artifact-finding hypocritical xianxia protagonist, we get a LITRPG villain system hypocritical xianxia protagonist, just as self-righteous (self-villainous?), and with his head just as far up his own ass as the rest of them.

I'm not sure if the author was trying to make a point, or make some kind of commentary on the xianxia genre, but the premise just... more>> doesn't do it for me if the MC isn't going to act above the people he constantly face-slaps. <<less

I really like this novel and I have read a sh*t load of novels.

MC here is a villain but as the story progresses you will come to know that things are not what they initially seem.

MC even himself is not simply a villain but a more terrifying existence.

Most of the low ratings reviewers only give reasons like MC is evil he is way op. These people should know by the title that MC is a villain he will be evil yet they give low ratings just because this story is... more>> not up to their preferences.

I honestly loathe people like these who doesn't like story just because of their personal preferences (like MC being op because they are f*ckers who like seeing MC beat up or MC being evil because they are now righteous people and MC having harem because they are pathetic single virgins and think other should remain same too etc)

If you give some solid reasons for hating the story I get that but upper mentioned reasons are just foolish so stop giving low ratings just because this novel is not your cup of tea. <<less

This. This is the CN novel I've been waiting to read, where an antagonist finally puts down all of those obnoxious, hypocritical CN MCs that we constantly read about.
It's not the most tightly written novel and the inconsistent system mechanics can be more or less ignored.
4 out of 5 stars, just because I enjoy seeing those annoying MCs getting their comeuppance.

SUMMARY
As per @Courting Death, the MC Gu Changge transmigrates into a Chinese Sephiroth (both physically and temperamentally similar). He's typecast into a stereotypical antagonist... the rich and... more>> powerful bad guy that oppresses those below him. Realizing his predicament, and having read waaaay too many CN webnovels in the past, Gu Changge must find ways to put down the inevitable Fated Children of Heaven (i.e. prototypical MCs) that will come after him.

COMMENTS
This novel is really about how the various Fated Children of Heaven (prototypical MCs) are rightfully portrayed.
You have your usual downtrodden, pitiful MCs (from their own perspective) that constantly feel wronged, but somehow because of plot-armor-no-jutsu (aka Fate/author), they luck their way out and beat out their peers despite a lack of talent. Most CN novels ignore the fact that their MCs have very problematic personalities:
-- your usual perverts,
-- hypocrites that oppress others the moment they power up,
-- hypocrites that don't hesitate to betray random strangers but expects everyone else to do them good by them (i.e your usual self-entitled MCs),
-- despicably selfish/greedy people who are just as underhanded when screwing over other innocent bystanders,
-- whiney individuals who don't work hard but instead complain all day about social injustice and how unfair the world is (i.e. your usual Welfare MCs),
-- self-righteous pricks who, even after being properly compensated for earlier injustices, constantly have a chip in their shoulder and make trouble for those they perceive as having wronged them (i.e. anti-establishment MCs),
-- douchebags that emotionally blackmail FLs to help them out when in a dire situation,
-- your usual r*pey perverts.
In this novel, these personality flaws are highlighted for what they are and is really satisfying to read.

Enter Gu Changge, a character born with a platinum spoon, has good looks, talent, etc. There's a genuinely interesting background that caused the MC to be typecast as a villain, and he must now find a way to dig himself out of this hole, all while using his status and privilege.
Spoiler

MC was born with a demonic heart, that caused him to lead a different life with split-personality when he was younger. By the time his Systemic power starts up and he regains his own consciousness, he's already in his 20s and stuck in a villain role.

[collapse]

Gu Changge is diabolical and cunningly manipulative, embracing his role as a villain to the fullest. His schemes against the Fated Children are quite interesting. It's kinda meta, but he often exploits their personality flaws, behaviors, thought processes, etc against them since he has a good understanding of how they think based on previous CN webnovels. Sure, he manipulates the women around these MCs, but it's often by creating situations where they truly see these MCs for who they really are.

That said, Changge has his own moral code and doesn't screw over anyone/everyone just because he can (i.e. he's not a psychopath like other CN villains).

Although there's a large cast of women around him, the focus of this novel isn't really romance. He feels some affection for the women around him but is still motivated by his own ambition to climb to (and stay at) the top.

EDIT (as of c275) :
MC Gu Changge's latest target of manipulation Jiang Chu Chu, the Holy Priestess of the Church of the Human Messiah (my own lousy translation) is kind of hit-or-miss. This is around c200-275, and led to some reviewers mentioning Stockholm Syndrome, etc. I definitely agree it could have been done better.
Spoiler

Gu Changge was plotting after the Human Messiah, a reincarnative entity that descended whenever an Absolute Negative Sky (my own lousy translation) Calamity also descended. They effectively represent absolute "good" and "evil" respectively. These two forces have battled through the ages, and the MC is after them both.

As part of his scheme, he captures and manipulates Jiang Chu Chu to reveal the whereabouts of both these entities. There's r*ape involved, which is disappointing and very pointless. The only lame defense Gu Changge makes to Jiang Chu Chu is that he's "just trying to survive, like everyone else", because Human Messiahs have always exterminated Demonic Art Successors like him.

[collapse]

In AD&D speak, MC Gu Changge is effectively a Lawful Evil character.
Spoiler

Lawful Evil: These characters believe in using society and its laws to benefit themselves. Structure and organization elevate those who deserve to rule as well as provide a clearly defined hierarchy between master and servant. To this end, lawful evil characters support laws and societies that protect their own concerns. If someone is hurt or suffers because of a law that benefits lawful evil characters, too bad. Lawful evil characters obey laws out of fear of punishment. Because they may be forced to honor an unfavorable contract or oath they have made, lawful evil characters are usually very careful about giving their word. Once given, they break their word only if they can find a way to do it legally, within the laws of the society. An iron-fisted tyrant and a devious, greedy merchant are examples of lawful evil beings.

[collapse]
On the other hand, his hidden status as the Demonic Art Successor is effectively a Chaotic Evil character and fundamentally different. It's also why that status is so hated by the rest of the world since it relies on consuming others to power oneself (which for a xianxia novel really isn't a big deal).
Spoiler

Chaotic Evil: These characters are the bane of all that is good and organized. Chaotic evil characters are motivated by the desire for personal gain and pleasure. They see absolutely nothing wrong with taking whatever they want by whatever means possible. Laws and government are the tools of weaklings unable to fend for themselves. The strong have the right to take what they want, and the weak are there to be exploited. When chaotic evil characters band together, they are not motivated by a desire to cooperate, but rather to oppose powerful enemies. Such a group can be held together only by a strong leader capable of bullying his underlings into obedience. Since leadership is based on raw power, a leader is likely to be replaced at the first sign of weakness by anyone who can take his position away from him by any method. Bloodthirsty buccaneers and monsters of low Intelligence are find examples of chaotic evil personalities.

[collapse]

Gu Changge could've explained himself to Jiang Chu Chu and others about the difference, and she could have been easily swayed. After all, surely a certain amount of bad is allowable for the greater good? He's not out to ruin the entire universe as per what his Demonic Art Successor persona is wont to do.

At the end of the day, she's indoctrinated as a Holy Priestess. As long as the Absolute Negative Sky was destroyed, who gives a sh*t about the Human Messiah??! Instead the plot takes a weird ambiguous turn where she's confused about her feelings for her captor (i.e. Stockholm Syndrome).

Still keeping my 4 star rating, but just wanted to point out to readers in case they have the same misgivings about that particular plotline. <<less

I Am The Fated Villain tells the story of how Chinese Sephiroth uses the power of Stockholm Syndrome to cuck obnoxious cultivation protagonists.

One of the novel's features is the scheming as it quickly evolves past simple cat and mouse. In order to become the invincible ruler the world, our protagonist Gu Changge plays the impostor in a big game of Among Us against the cultivation world. Since the story has a good level of logical consistency, reading through Gu Changge's plots will provide an ample supply of big brain moments.

Unusual... more>> for a cultivation novel, I Am The Fated Villain has great characterization. There are a lot of very memorable side characters; personalities are distinct, motives are clearly explained, and interesting character development is common. How these characters react to Gu Changge's actions is the novel's main source of tension and payoff.

The novel does have flaws that stick out to me. The exposition is sometimes repetitive. The power system is utterly one-note. Gu Changge feels too perfect. The novel is far from perfect - I could go on.

Still, for me, the good outweighs the bad. I appreciate the strong feeling of schadenfreude I get from reading this novel. <<less

It's one of the few good Xianxia novels I have read with a decent plot and character development. All the female characters also get their fair share of character development and they are not all one dimensional loving the MC just because he is the main character. The MC character is ruthless to the extreme and he meticulously plans his moves and takes down his enemies. All in all it was a good read.

A really great xianxia villain novel, with a good mix and scheming, mystery, and intrigue. I read a lot of other villain novels before this one, both urban and xianxia, and they really pale in comparison. The main character is very evil, but he still has a touch of humanity, and treats the people close to him very well. The interactions with the heroines was also very well done, and they serve a real purpose outside of having had some connection to the protagonists. Overall I would rate this a... more>> 5/5 and recommend this to everyone. (Really the only villain novel you need to read imo) <<less

I really liked this novel. The MC thrashes Stereotypical protagonists and steals their luck and beauties, well he's a badass who is calculative and scheming with no useless emotional attachment. Great... But later on, female characters come into play.

... more>>
Spoiler

1st is mc's fiance, she's a female protagonist from the future, well I kind of understand why MC doesn't kill this one because she has use and really loves him.

NOW 2nd female character is mc's cousin who, mind you MC DUG OUT HER BONES. MC just talks to her and she's yeah he's kinda not bad. It's only later on that MC digs out the bone and gives it back to her like its a f*cking glove. Well, now one more girl in the harem I guess.

Then there is 3rd girl, this one is a f*cking masterpiece. She goes to meet MC and finds out his greatest secret well maybe 2nd greatest since 1st secret is his system. Just happens that she's dumb enough to go into mc's house and meet him openly even though she suspected something might be really wrong with MC. What did she expect? Well now MC has her in his grasp and can kill her whenever... but he needs information about a new son of luck. How? you may ask; well according to MC by taking to her and using his CHARM (hmmm... reminds me of EVERY protagonist ever) Later on its revealed that 1st girl already knew about the new son of luck and MC knows she knows... then why keep the 3rd girl alive since she's dangerous and if she reveal mc's secret the world is gonna be against him you may ask....i don't know go ask author ¯_ (ツ) _/¯. So when MC effortlessly kills son of luck who is revealed to be THE HUMAN ANCESTOR (REN ZU) he guess what.... he releases the 3rd girl and lets her go in the world with his secret and says that she won't reveal it because he's confident of his "effect" on her. (spoken like a true protagonist with his charm as a whole plot armor in itself) . Behold a new harem girl.

And btw why are every male characters depicted to be s*upid and idiotic? Even the human ancestor is like -100 iq. Like he's supposed to have reincarnated soooo many times and be the most ancient one.... did he not f*cking learn anything all these year.

In this novel all female characters are harem material and never killed and all male characters are potential food for MC.

Well I dropped and gave this novel a new chance 3 times now, this time I think I'm done with this novel.

[collapse]

Sorry for all this rant but I hope you can understand my sheer disappointment with this novel. It's an MC whose premise is to crush the stereotypical protagonist but in the end, he acts like one himself. If I misunderstood something please kindly let me know. Thanks for reading. <<less

How do I say this... I expect an exciting battle of wits and abilities between MC against the children of heaven but what I got instead is low quality dogsh*t. It is quite enjoyable at the start since MC only fight against a lucky beggar so I could accept his enemy's overly ret*rd bearings but as the story advances the flaws become more prevalent.

The problematic flaw is that all confrontation from MC against all of the so called 'sons of heavens' are more like the confrontation of an adult against... more>> toddlers. All sons of heavens are pretty much irredeemable ret*rds that incapable of logical thinking, all they could do is to act according to their genitals. Even their allies or 'brothers' are similar at the aspect of having fully functional brain but choose to think with their genital nevertheless. You can't expect any logic from these brainless ret*rds.

These daughters of heavens are even more of a joke, all of them always have HUGE good wills toward MC no matter how they loathe MC to the bones currently. They always refuse to do something harmful to MC for some bullsh*t reason no matter how illogical that is. I only see one moment when ONE of them did something harmful to the MC and that one moment is not even intentional at all. You can't believe how I cringed at her insta-regret like, "WHY WOULD YOU REGRET HURTING HIM HAAAHH??? SHOULDN'T YOU HATE HIM TO DEATH??? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??"

Last but not least, his cheat system, the biggest joke of this story. This story makes fun of the so called "children of heavens" because of their OP cheat but I never see anyone with bigger cheat than the MC's. "Oh, you need cultivation technique?? here Supreme Emperor Godly Peerless Heavenly Demonic Divine Super Hyper level technique that you could insta-learn without any repercussion." "Oh, you need cultivation level?? here Insta-cultivation level up that is so cheap you could break through the very limit of the f*cking universe for the price of a fried chicken." "Oh you need some broken items?? Here some extremely broken items that could break the balance of universe that come from who knows where with cheap price and some more of even more extremely broken items you get for stomping some 'toddler of heavens' to death".

In conclusion, the premise is a gigantic freaking lie as I don't see any child beloved by the heavens other than MC. He always get what he wants without any hindrance or obstructions, all of his enemies are braindead no matter how good their background is and all females will always submissive to him no matter how much they loathe him. It is insulting how this story is supposed to be "MC fight against the world" kind of story, yet MC is the one most loved by the world. <<less

Basically Li Qiye but evil.

People Will like/dislike this novel mostly because same reason:

1. Overpowered, seriously hes way too powerful ... more>>
Spoiler

his true identity is a true ancestor from the source world (the Strongest and highest world) his transmigration and the system is an arrangement by his true body, his ultimate Goal is to swallow the other 2 true ancestor and surpass his current cultivation

[collapse]

2. Near-omniscient, as hes an ancient old existence (like Li Qiye), his knowledge is extremely high that he looks omniscient.

3. Almost never had serious dificulty when reaching his goal, thanks to his power and knowledge.

If you like character like Li Qiye but prefer him to be evil, manipulating and seeing everything as chess pieces, then this novel is good for you. <<less

The novel is pretty good, although the villain's behaviour is sometimes a bit exaggerated.

Spoiler

He orders a whole sect to be destructed because one guy from there didn't want to reveal the info he needed.

[collapse]

What is truly amazing though is the translator. He publishes 2/3 chapters a day, which are of premium quality and goes way and beyond to explain concepts of the cultivation world that some could be confused about and sometimes even some of the more advanced vocabulary. Props to you, Vilfic!

Using MTL I read ahead so I feel like I've read enough to review the novel

The plot

You know those s*upid, arrogant, egotistical, pieces of tr*sh that are usually the stars of cultivation novels like the protagonist in martial peak? Well the MC's goal is to either kill them or take them down a peg. Overall it's just him repeatedly face slapping stereotypical tr*sh cultivation protagonists there's no ultimate villain and the MC is not progressing with any goal in mind you get what you came here for. The pace of... more>> the plot is kinda unsteady and it can go from extremely fast to a snails pace it depends what protagonist he is facing at the time. The MC

He is a ridiculously OP calculative and manipulative individual who seems to not give a f*ck about anyone around him he treats everyone like chess pieces. The MC is a complete scumbag who doesn't possess an ounce of kindness he definitely fits the role of villain. Overall he's a really interesting protagonist and you won't get board with him although he can be frustrating at times. The harem

Honestly it's not a harem per se like I said he doesn't really treat people as humans as such he doesn't really engage in romantic matters. The saint girl he stole had been MIA for over 80 chapters and I'm convinced the author forgot about her. I honestly can't see him ending up with anyone romantically at all. At best the woman at objects to him even though he does Cuck several people he never keeps them as wives or concubines.

World building

Not much to say so far there are multiple realms and although we get the names of several powers we never get information about the world itself just think of it as a world where multiple cultivation stories BS protagonist can coexist without anyone questioning the timeline of events. Other characters

All the sons/ daughters of fate have annoying personality traits some are delusional and s*upid like Ye Chen others are just crazy like the second protagonist he encounters if you've read cultivation stories you know what to expect from these people. The girls he steals while smarter than other people are kinda bland despite being beautiful they lack anything that makes them unique which is to be expected from heroines of cultivation stories. The side characters are as usual just brainless idiots that make comments on everything the protagonists or villains do. my rating for this novel

4/5

It's unique with an interesting MC I started reading this because of the harem which left me disappointed considering the MC probably won't end up with anyone but I'm staying for the plot at this point. If your tired of seeing dumb protagonists like the protagonist from martial peak abuse their plot armor give this a read it should ease some of your frustration. <<less

3 stars at best, its like a significantly worse version of Ascending the Heavens as an Evil God.

You can't go memeing "children of heaven" and "MCs with lots of destiny" when you're the same thing. The author tries to make MC really evil/smart but honestly he feels more useless than anything. He just rides his system and uses non existent logic to make random "beauties" fall for him. Its has a similar vide to those books where the author tries to make the MC sound like they are really righteous... more>> and everyone else is just some hypocrite? But the MC is also a hypocrite? Same thing here but hypocrite is replaced by "heaven's chosen".

My main issue is MC is more or less nothing without his System. Doesn't show anything beyond an average level of thinking. No different from another useless MC except he has a system that targets those same "useless MCs". Seems like they became what they hated

Female leads are also pretty useless, author tries to force them into the plot. Or just have them around.

I will say it does have some mildly humorous moments.

Its a mediocre time pass but that's about it. Perhaps it gets better further in

Overall decent read, just the MC is nothing special and girls and "harem" tag is complete cr*p, other things are minor. While this is a negative review, always remember that this is still much better than most of the cultivation novels eg. MGA, ATG, etc <<less

It's a great story, I don't really understand why everybody else who reviews this novel seems to dislike it so much, It's not like they're capable of creating a 'Genius' protag.

It works, You don't really need to explain his whole thought process because that dampens the whole 'Genius' thing, And it's nigh impossible to explain how a Genius would think without being one, And that honour belongs to a very, very select few individuals.

I'd Recommend it, It's written well, I don't have anything to complain about, If you like Novels... more>> with Villains who curb-stomp their opponents with Brain And Brawn, without losing their 'Villainous' personality, This is a Novel for you. <<less

(Edit) You know what f it, here I'll say it, the story is dying and starting to get repetitive, yes I get it I'm not finished the novel but I'm well ahead of most, so please before making a review atleast feel the ending. I mean cmon do you really think a one shot author can write it that well for 1200 chapters for this to even come close to a 5 or 4 star because if you do, you have a real nice sense of humor there. You... more>> have to know that there's later plot ofc, but how long does op last before it bores someone? Like can you deal with MC being pushed around by fMC and one shotting every villian for the rest of the story until well MC sacrifices himself or it ends? Ah yes right did something catch my eye from one of the reveiwers yes, was it brainded yes, was this unesacery yes, Quick rant below

Spoiler

This rant seems to go nowhere but it explains how the story will go
Fun fact did you know author has a thing for women wanting to curb stomp, kill and hate MC,
Welllllllll it's boring.. Boring and boring as the author decides to mega buff the MC into oblivion with all his trump cards or backhands that you mostly won't see. To put it simply his abilities aren't explored enough. Had potential, well kinda, it has a nice idea but a bad execution. Like sugar during a race all that energy just to crash and burn. Too much plot amour, side characters such with the normal MC only liking tsuades (can't spell) and bla bla bla. Can't picture the world well, maybe that's the experience, the rating of this is kinda overated. It's OK I mean you probably won't regret reading this, would say that MC isn't cold enough to fMC or maybe just gets trapped by them too much. MC just gets pushed around too much, if only he had more control. Maybe if the author had smarter side characters. Maybe better side characters and FMC. MC just happens to be God and can read everyone's mind. It's no longer taking a guess it's him rewriting the story to be about with he thinks. Ps it gets worse if u wanted to know, also read the other reviews about the good things too lazy to write them.

no romance but the author tried.

Author also tried to write a decent MC but failed

Side characters included

anyways o does this get worse I mean it's like MC has a soft spot for females and is readable by females I means he's getting played like a checkers player who's paid the creator to cheat and reshape the game into his own but still losing to the chess player.

Having read hundreds of chapters of MTL, I can tell you guys that unfortunately this novel struggles just as much as other cultivation novels to keep things interesting. The whole selling point of this 'sons of luck' become basically nonexistent as every son of luck is no different from characters in other generic cultivation novels.

The premise is interesting, but the author didn't have the skill or creativity to make this truly different and interesting, so he fell back on all the cultivation tropes that make us roll our eyes by... more>> now. <<less

I enjoyed the novel but I won't keep reading because I find MC too evil for my taste, but if you enjoy reading about a truly evil MC this novel won't dissapoint you.

MC doesn't have any problems exterminating a whole sect for trivial reasons or making a silly girl his mindless s*ave. Since the start of the novel MC doesn't see people as people but only as ants or possible benefits/harm.

I came here after reading the comic. And I love it.

Even more so when they do act like villains instead of the "I incarnated in a villain and now need to turn into a good guy and fix things to survive". I'm tired of those already.

... more>> I've already came to terms that women in most male MC novels are there for fanservice and foil for the MC so that's that.

If anything to nitpick I'd prefer if it was QT with him going to multiple worlds with different settings as a villain to ahem~ frick over ahem~ different kinds of protagonists as the villain...

1 cuz I'd very much like to see him doing that in different settings and 2 cuz there's a limit of how many different plots a martial setting can have...

Amazing novel about transmigrator who gets a system to help him crush 'fated protagonists'. Similar to History's Strongest Big Brother, but I'd argue more focused around the central premise.

The MC is casually cruel, he enjoys playing with people and at one point casually destroyed a sect on a whim. I'd argue he truly is a villain, which makes it enjoyable to follow him as the MC.

That said, the so called 'fated protagonists' aren't exactly righteous people either. This novel does an excellent job of showing the other side of... more>> typical Xianxia Mass Murdering Chad MCs, and just how evil they can be.

Only criticism of the novel so far is that the MC seems to be powering up too quickly. I am worried that the power creep might ruin the mid/late stages of the novel.

Huge props to the translator VILFIC. The translation quality is excellent, and the speed is lightning fast, almost 2 chapters a day. <<less

Good, I really enjoyed it, and I hope they continue translating it, and the rest of the chapters are a novel worth the time and Manhua is very promising... Everyone is excited about it and I am too

So I ask rawrfic and Cyborg-tl to continue uploading the chapters and not to stop and I support you

Thank you for your work, may God bless you.

Well this one certainly seems to have rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. I am seeing a bunch of 1 star reviews as well as a few 5 stars.

This story is a bit outside of expectations. This is a story where the MC is the villain of your typical xianhuan story. This genre seems to be gaining steam lately as I am seeing a bunch of these "villain system" stories pop up. For those of you familiar with xianhuan novels where the MC is guided by a ghost... more>> teacher or has inherited a ridiculously powerful legacy, or some other broken plot armor: the MC of this story is supposed to be the villain of those stories. There are multiple antagonists and side characters with cheat abilities from various genres of xianhuan.

As for the story itself: not much actual fighting. The MC has a ridiculously overpowered system that gives him ridiculously overpowered abilities, like the ability to buy whatever heavenly treasure he wants and the ability to upgrade his cultivation level whenever he feels like. The MC himself doesn't really have any combat experience and the author resolves every fight within 5 moves. Usually less than 5 moves. If you're looking for an exciting, action-packed xianhuan from the villain's perspective look elsewhere (I would recommend History's Strongest Senior Brother, which starts out a little like this and then transforms into a proper xianhuan with a different perspective. It isn't exactly a satire like this one but it shares some similarities. And yes, I still stand by my review of that one up to the chapters that I have read (and I dropped it when the old translator stopped).).

So if you don't get good fights in this, why should you read it? Well because it is a fun reversal of the usual tropes. Some of the other reviewers have said that it is a satire but that isn't exactly true. It certainly mocks the usual tropes and destroys the MC stereotypes, but the MC of this story is even more broken then they are. The strength of this story is enjoying an OP MC navigating a xianhuan setting. The MC has the connections necessary to explore this story setting and manipulate events in his favor. Normal xianhuan involve an underdog MC bouncing from one plot point to the next, with the help of fortuitous information and well-connected allies. This story has a scheming MC using his personal skills and family connections to get access to the various heaven-defying treasured that the standard MCs are supposed to get. So read this expecting a proper, intelligent villain to succeed with his scheming.
But what exactly does that mean? It means that the villain will approach a situation while aware of who the antagonist is and what the tropes usually do, and carry out a plan to take advantage of that. The MC is careful to only fight people that he can beat, so his opponents are defeated within a few sentences. There is some action, this is a xianhuan after all, but it takes a back seat to the character interactions.

tldr; if you want an evil MC to succeed with a lot of scheming and a small amount of action in a xianhuan world, give this a shot. Expect a broken system to protect the MC but since battles aren't very important, it isn't as annoying as it would be otherwise. If you want proper fighting and cultivating, don't even bother with this. <<less
