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!”

Highly Recommend

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

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!

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

MC is constantly killing heroes who are suddenly blessed, but he is no different lol. Also, the heroes are portrayed as shit. One or two might be crap, but more is meh. Garbage novel. There are a lot of these styles and it's all copy paste.

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

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.

The novel is good and deserves 4-5 stars but I won't rate or keep reading it because while the plot... more>> is really good I can't enjoy it anymore. <<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. Its 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. If I misunderstood something please kindly let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading. <<less

Read the Manhua and enjoyed it and was surprised to learn it had a novel.

Novel so far is good, short chapters though, minor spelling issues but not noticeable at times.

Since I don't believe in giving anything 5 stars it's a 4, considering there could be minor gripes later on like with every novel.
