Rebirth of a Cannon Fodder from a Novel


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

As the only girl born in the four generations of the Mo family – a prestigious and powerful family in Hua Xia – Mo Liu Gui has been adored since the day she was born. She is gorgeous, naive and intelligent. Behind her is the noble Mo family and by her side are countless excellent pursuers. Whether in career or relationships, she’s the heaven born life winner.

It’s a pity that Mo Di is not Mo Liu Gui but a tragic contrast of what one would call life winner.

He has been disliked by everyone in the Mo family since the day he was born. When he left the incubator, the whole family was competing for his sister but left him in the hospital corridor overnight. He never took a sip of his mother’s milk because it was just enough to feed one child. He has not been held by his father once because his father was extremely disgusted with the culprit who robbed his darling of nutrition in their mother’s womb. His five brothers never looked him in the eye. When he was six years old, they even ganged up to beat him till he had a fractured right leg which almost left him permanently disabled, all because he scored first place in his grade while his sister scored third, making Mo Liu Gui sad to the point of crying.

Countless scolding, neglect, double standard treatment, and even abuse in the name education have been habitually done to Mo Di. Finally one day, the Mo Di who has been soft and obedient for eighteen years turned black.

He was no longer a soft and sensible man but had become gloomy and aggressive. He ran away from home, started his own company and made new friends. Everything is booming but when his company was about to go public, he was found by the Mo family. During a struggle with Mo Liu Gui who was asking him to come home, she fell and almost had a miscarriage. This incited everyone’s anger and they forced him into a mental hospital.

In the end, he died on his 25th birthday…

Afterwards, he was reborn.

Illogical and brainless with stale face slapping. Characters are s*upid and everything is just strange.

The sister has a halo that makes everyone who comes in contact with her s*upid. Which makes them all mean to MC. So he decides to take revenge against them all.

But I have a few problems with MC,

... more>>

he was a weak child but after coming back suddenly he’s strong and knows how to fight?? Isn’t your body still weak? Like he doesn’t train or anything?? And they don’t even say when he learned that it’s just there, but he also had the time to learn coding (which also makes him a master hacker because of course.) and he does this thing were he switch’s from traumatized to pure psycho (which I allow cuz that’s the only thing that makes sense to me in all of this)


and I cannot just accept the MC and ML relationship at face value because


MC is literally using Ml, he finds out ML is slightly attracted to him and so he ups he’s game by 200% to make sure the he stays on his side. Nothing to show he actually likes ML so far.



and then there was a part where MC held a grudge for seemingly no reason?? He finds one of FL cannon fodder men and he decides to leave him bleeding because “he hated them all” but later explains that he didn’t even do anything to him and had a bad ending like wth. Why are you making enemies for no reason then?? Oh “because he liked your sister”.


Anyways the point is I found this super unsatisfying, because the characters are so brain dead and boring that the face slapping is basically just pointing out how dumb they are. <<less

I’m down for a good revenge/second chance story but ooooh this is too much. I get the whole face slapping and exposing a bit*h is satisfying but there was no satisfaction from reading this story at all. It just made me so frustrated and annoyed. I’m like why are there so many dumb nonsense characters?!?! And the main character just rubs me the wrong way at this point. He’s trying to get back at his sister and all the people who’ve wronged him but he’s doing exactly what his sister... more>> does to him. I’m like okay that happens. Give them a taste of their own medicine kinda thing or it happens that a character is so abused and traumatized from their experience that they become twisted but to intentionally manipulate an innocent person who was never involved in your situation? Nah that’s another kind of twisted. At least make an upfront deal with them or something. Idk. It just seems so wrong to me so I don’t recommend reading this if you can’t handle the intense s*upidity and ridiculousness it has in store. <<less

don't expect little things like logic, intelligence, or common sense from the majority of the cast in this story, especially at the start. I spent the first several chapters in awe of the complete lack of anything resembling sense to the point where the MC seems like the only sane person.

there's a lot of dogs blood melodrama in this one and lots and lots of scheming and face slapping. The high volume of melodrama and the black lotus sister stand out far more clearly than the actual MC and ML... more>> for most of the novel, though the turn around at the end is good and the two were very sweet together.

I don't have much tolerance for melodrama but I finished this (while skipping chapters) more because I wanted to see the sister get what was coming to her rather than for the MC or ML. It's not a nice reason, but hey, at least I'm honest.

I have to give props to the author. She created a character so vile and memorable that she is the first thing readers will think of when remembering the story, rather than the poor MC.


I really dislike melodrama but at the same time, there were some very good twists to the story three-fourths of the way through so I would say this was a 3 through most of the novel and a 4 at the end. My final rating in my notes was 3.5 but that's not an option here so I rounded up.

read when you want a story with lots of face slapping and melodrama. <<less

Warning for first timers:

For the few chapter of this story contains physical abuse and mental abuse that are caused by nonsensical reason. For those who are sensitive about this, read with caution.

Although this book has wrap up nicely (thank God), I do have some liking and dislikes about this story.


    • Romance between MC and ML is sweet.
    • The supporting characters are likeable.
    • Has side cp pairings.
    • Through revenge although it doesn't feel satisfying at the end.
    • The antagonist is strong.
    • Probably the most memorable former FMC.

    • It's pretty obvious since everyone here pointed out. The bloody abuse. And Brain dead villains.
    • The antagonist although strong opponent it is not unique enough to be something new. Their personalities and motivation is too obvious and stereotypical.
    • The revenge feels too easy (with reasons), still not satisfied tho.
Let me have some thoughts for the novel to let this out of my mind.

To start with ranting my frustrations.


Reading this makes me mad. Even at the end I despise the former FMC. Here's the thing I actually wanted to sympathize her for being a victim of the Mo family because of the way they treated her younger brother like he is garbage. But the more I read ahead the more I felt like she's unredeemable. If she is the victim, then her actions makes no sense. It was at the very end almost the conclusion I find the reason why. She's not the real protagonist. And she has been brainwashing everyone around her and abusing MC because he is disgusting. WTF. I can't sympathize with her no more. I'm not saying she should be forgiven if the case was former but it would make this story more tragic in my opinion. The only person who I find at least redeemable is one one person from the Mo family.


There. Now I do like the MC and ML relationship. It does touched me how both are cherishing each other and also the level of respect they have is to die for.

I can only say that if anyone wants to read this make sure your mentality is ready because I think you guys needed.

I feel like coughing up 3lt of blood from reading this. So suffocating. So dogblooded.

If you don't like dog blood drama with no brain villain (the villains are so 2D and so villainous it feels like caricature villains) and RIDICULOUS plot then you might skip this. Read spoiler for further details.

Also for one of the reviewer, I disagree because they didn't read the completed book. The lotus isn't there just to be trampled but because reasons. And MC isn't a Gary Stu, Gary Stu is male white lotus, MC is... more>> not lol. If he's a Gary Stu he won't pursue revenge, shamelessly used Ml, or actively trying to destroy his family. He does have thicc plot armor. MC also need ML because despite being able to revenge alone it will take far longer with shitton of twists (despite his genius he's still a powerless highschool grad and to do things smoothly ML's power helped). I think ML being made fun as pedo and weirdo is author's humor and that's hit or miss.

Read this for:

1. Face slapping/second chances

2. Sugar daddy ML

3. Dog food

4. MC that's black to the bones, unrepentant about his actions.

5. Doting ML

MC is honestly so fuking pitiful, imagine every dog blooded drama plot, it happened all to MC. I'm seriously thinking why he's still sane atm. He's a good boy that craved for his family's love only to be spurned by abuse and hate. He's a textbook BL MC in the way that he's a genius, handsome, and a good cook. The only thing that made him slightly different is that he's not above using ML to get revenge from his family. His conscience is "clear" that he's using ML.


He's a Cannon fodder from novel used to highlight his sister. And there's no WHY it's just the way it is. His family hates him, abuses him because they thought he stole his sister's nutrients (they're born twins and apparently MC is the weaker ones) and the abuses happened to MC made me want to rage quit this. At the end of his life he's been through a lot, like every dog blooded drama happened to him from slander, robbed, etc. WHY?? Because plot.



ML is textbook BL ML. Rich, handsome, powerful, and doted on MC. Why he needed to be that?


he was in wheelchair in MC's last life and apparently MC's family thought he's psycho/twisted because he's gay. He's a Cannon fodder that being used to highlight sister's boyfriend. (Like ML is handsome and powerful and rich BUT he's less than SBF)

this life tho MC saved him and changed some trajectory. He's powerful and rich because MC is just a highschooler with no power and honestly pitiful that he needs golden thigh to hang on.

All that genius is wasted because he doesn't even realize he's being used by MC lol. But MC's feeling later turn sincere :D


His twin sister is a textbook white lotus that always cry and faint and generally makes you want to throw your shoes at her. She's so righteous and her logic is seriously skewed. She's an aspiring actress.

SBF or sister's boyfriend is honestly a chuunibyou.


handsome, powerful, unfeeling unless for the sister. And is a mafia to boot. His family Likes to make human swine and hang them off to be "admired" lol yeah he's chuuni af. There's also a mention of family infighting (like he's trying to usurp his dad idk)




Basically MC is trying to live his life and change his fate. He used ML at first for his power but fell in love for his loving care (because he's been abused so much and ML is like the first human to care/be kind to him).

He's aware that he's a novel's cannon fodder and he's unreconciled. That's why he got reborn.

He's currently fighting the plot. Because sh*t that supposed to happen still happen but it's less severe and he always managed to turn back the plot to ruin mo family. He realized that people are being influenced by the "plot" so their brain have huge holes but he's also aware it's just a small part of it. (Like whole China isn't covered by the plot, only places and people that interact with them hence you still see sane netizens).

The plot is apparently MC's sister who is a transmigrator. Her system and halo bring the family's and everyone's IQ to bottom Hence their baseless hate towards MC. She's a homophobe that's why she killed off MC's 3rd bro BF in her previous life and destroyed MC.


Tl;Dr plot with huge spoiler


The original book is BL between MC and ML. Sister read that and hated it because she is a homophobe. She got transmigrated to the book and got system and all, destroyed MC and ML. The reader who read Sister book feel dissatisfied with the ending and more people ship MC and ML Hence MC got reborn and "righting" the plot

Ok... usually we see an intelligence debuff but the other family members have issues upon issues.... the MCs sister is a typical mary-sue and as we will find out in the final chapters ... more>>

she has a millionaire system, full knowledge of the book and loads of aura.



In the original world she was an ordinary person and the original book was BL with the same gong-shou pairing. She is a homophobe and so is the system so she aims for her brother because she considers him dirty and is sickened by him. MC is reborn and ML gets his memories of the previous life which he also fell in love with MC and avenged his death.

The amount of mindless physical and mental abuse as well as dog blood is pretty amazing. And all of it is mindlessly directed at the MC purely due to a plot device.

... more>>

The transmigrated sister with a system who is targeting all the main characters against the MC for this abuse is a homophobe, but I have a hard time believing how flat and 2D her character is without an ounce of empathy for all the pain and suffering she caused. I mean... talk about viciously depicted female charcters... 😥


I noped out of the story by the nth round of abuse towards the MC and how convenient it was that it could easily occur. <<less

This is a refreshing revenge story that I can get behind, the relationship between the ML and MC is cute but also develops as the MC matures and he gets better and heals rather than being a love at first sight.

The story also doesn't feel unrealistic and you genuinely wish that MoDi becomes the final winner.

I really enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it, t slight flaws of the novel don't cover up the fact that this is a good read.

I MTL the novel but the translation is really good... more>> also. <<less

This novel is amazing. As far as I read them, it's still about how brainless is MC's family.

And I super loved our MC, he's smart, but not OP. He still have to depend on ML to take revenge.

I think everyone think the same as me, about MC's sister, she's f*cling annoying.

... more>>

Fortunately, our ML is not someone who abused MC in the novel, not even in slightest. He's like, cannon fodder with extremely rich. Cuz, before our MC rebirth, our ML also become someone useless with cripples leg


I don't care much about logic in this novel cuz I like them. <<less

I must say most characters in this book are brainless, especially the Mo family. All Liu Gui needs to do is to cry, then all of them will abuse our MC.

Follow the journey of MC being blamed for all the smallest nonsense reason for 70% of the book. Thank god there is our sugar daddy ML and MC's perfectly functional brain, so they can counterattack the white lotus Liu Gui.

But still, I feel unsatisfied with the revenge. I feel like they haven't suffered enough and they don't even feel the... more>> slightest guilt (for most of he Mo family).

If you are looking for a fluffy fluffy story, this ain't it.

And the reason why all the people love Liu Gui brainlessly is because:


in the first life, Liu Gui is actually a transmigrator, and Mo Di's world is a book that she's reading. The MC of the book is Mo Di and Mu Tianheng.

Because she's disgusted with homosexuality, she gained a system that basically makes her protagonist halo so strong and shinier than an oily bald head.

But, this Mary Sue version of the book makes other readers unsatisfied. So people starts to write fanfictions where Mo Di live happily ever after. Because the fans of the fanfiction are higher than the Mary Sue version, Mo Di gained a second chance.

This novel is ridiculous hahahhahahahah

Wow~ this novel is really incredible. Can't help but praise author-sama for displaying a great effort on protraying how MC was tortured physically and mentally.

And this novel is beyond the level of common Sense. Hahaha, but its has great plot line and I like how the face slapping was done.

What I just want to ask is...

... more>> MC was turtured physically from the very young age but he didn't get any scar???

Infact MC and ML didn't need to do all of that. They just have to picture MC's body full of scar, and Sue them for child abuse after cutting ties. MC was still underage when that happens. If they did that, MC didn't need to experience that slander and critisms in the internet.

Recommended for people who like to have motivation. You're blood will boil reading this novel. So much that I want to drop it just by reading first few chapters. But because the desire to seek Justice for our protagonists, bare with it and continued. Anyway MC and ml's interaction is super fluffy.

Incredibly dog blood, super melodramatic. The MC is bullied to the point it’s ridiculous. I know the author said clearly it’s that kind of tragic setting, but no way. I feel choked up with how angry I get reading about his evil family.

Very sad story, but so far it's making me excited to see what sort of revenge the MC is going to get and how he's going to end that spoiled sister and 'family' of his.

... more>>

The MC is not timid or weak, he's actually a very well thought out person, he's also very smart. Right now he's acting weak for the time being in order to plot his revenge.



I especially hope that the brothers and ex-best friend rot, I'm mean how just how could someone think that a person who just had a near-death allergic reaction be guilty of framing their sister for purposely giving him cocoa. Even going as far as to bash the MC's head in the ground, break his hand and dislocate a leg. Also, just how'd the family came up with the idea that the MC (Who was hospitalized at the time) poisoned the dad, like when, when and how would the MC even be able to do that when he being bashed on the ground~~


The story makes sense and has a unique plot, it makes you just want to bash the villains yourself and you just can't wait until the MC and ML get revenge on the bunch.

A lot happens in the first 10 chapters, but surprisingly, it doesn't feel as if the story's being rushed. Everything is corresponding and goes in order, yet still manages to entice the reader.

Good novel <<less

I'd you're in the mood for a lot of face slapping, the white lotus getting trampled on. And the rise of an innocent Gary sue. This is just for you. As for why the low rating? It's clear the author just wanted to face slap a white lotus. It dosen't matter if the whole situation doesn't make any sense. That white lotus still needs to get slapped. The ML was just there to help MC face slap his family. Poor guy was tricked by MC to take care of him,... more>> got labeled as a beast and a pedophile for just looking at MC. It's weird, this might just be the only gary sue book where gary sue didn't even need a golden thigh, but he wanted one, even though he is straight. <<less
