This Three Year Old Is a Villainess

‘Where is the logic in transmigrating in a transmigration novel…!!’

This transmigration novel’s title was “I Transmigrated, But I Became the Granddaughter of the Villain”.

In other words, it’s the story of the original, REAL female lead… and I ended up transmigrating as the villainess who torments the female lead!

Playing the role of the villainess who does all sorts of evil things to the female lead and then later suffers greatly?

I can’t believe my life’s genre suddenly turned into a wretched tragedy without my say on the matter!

I can’t live like this!

‘Please save me!’

But before the female lead could even appear, so many things just kept happening in front of me.

“You’re the one with dirty blood. Right? I’ve been hearing people say that you wag your bum like an idiot to get food. Like a beggar.”


‘You’re all dead.’

I, Erylotte, have transmigrated as the villainess of a wretched tragedy novel, known for its highest level of difficulty.

At the age of three, I must make my way through life by using the original storyline to find my path. But…


Why was the villainous duke, my grandfather, suddenly treating me well? Why did my dad, who was supposedly far away because he received the grandfather’s disdain, suddenly appear?

And why were my older brothers being so annoyingly clingy?


‘What the heck.’

[Erylotteeeee, so dangerously cuteㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ] [Ahhㅠㅠ I’m sorry for cursing you out before, I didn’t know you transmigrated ㅠㅠㅠ Turns out there’s this kind of settingㅠㅠㅠ] [Gotcha, it’s a wretched tragedyㅠㅠ Isn’t this family situation almost apocalyptic?]

↳ [I know right ㅋㅋㅠㅠ] [There’s some foreshadowing here… Aren’t the cookies poisoned?]

I stared at the window that appeared in front of me like a hologram.

‘This looks like the comment section on CoconutPage though?’

Just how did it turn out like this?!

Thank you Travis Translations for picking up this novel!

Hard to say if it's great just from 5 chapters but I'll updates with a better review after having read it further. For now it's promising, and if you add the nice promo manhwa I would say it's very likely this will become one of my favorite novels!

Love this novel!!

I like this novel to the point I was even ready to read the mtl part of it. After that I realized that there really wasn't any mtl version of this novel in Google. So now I am back to the mercy of the translation group. To you all who are working hard for this novel, thank you so much for picking up this novel and translating it!! The translation is extremely clear and great. I am eagerly waiting for the next update. I'm pretty sure that if... more>> the chapters increase, then the popularity of the novel will soar too. It has an extremely good plot. <<less

I love the novel so much especially the MC. She's smart, cunning and strong. She is not a mary sue and a damsel in distress character. She know how to stand up for herself and fix the issues in a calm way. She has strong brothers and father but she is not the type of MC who rely with it. She don't give a fxck with everything that isn't her business but not until you touch her in a bad way. She will give it back to you ten times... more>> what you did to her.

The author knows how to trigger annoyance coz everytime the villains do something evil I feel annoyed and you want to root for MC to smack their arrogant faces.

This novel is quiet popular in kakaopage with 9.5 million views and still on going. But the weird thing is why the rating is so bad like 8.5???? Are they serious? They said it's because of similarity with the previous work of the author. Same author of The Baby Raising A Devil. But I find it more similar to I'll Be The Matriarch In This Life. They are complaining that the author recycling her previous work. Not for me coz I forgot the plot of The Baby Raising The Devil. I read it a long time ago but I didn't finish it. Lmao. Anyway not all novels that has good ratings on kakao has a enjoyable content. <<less

I cannot explain my love for this cliche novel (sometimes cliches are good for your heart guys🙄🙄).

The grandfather is definitely my favourite character, right after the villainous badass MC (trust me, this child is more evil than her brothers and dad combined😭) There are people in this novel that need to square up rn, also I love how romance isn't really a 'main' focus, but it's still there yk

The plot is nice, though sometimes cliche, if you read further and further, there is lots of interesting things that catch your... more>> attention.


and her being able to see the comment section?? And the main characters of the comments changing?? How original.



Like, the whole 'humans actually being artificially-made creatures by people of the past'???? And the religion??? I need to know more about that


The MC is a strong character, she's smart, manipulative, gives back double what she gets, and is NOT oblivious to people who have a crush on her (super rare). She knows when and what to do, she doesn't intervene until she finds it necessary, she isn't a pushover, and she will insult you to your face if she has to, and I love her for that.

She's also scary (iykyk), which I like. Her plans are so satisfying to read, especially when she's taking revenge after someone hurts her loved one.

Of course, this story has a lot of mistakes as well. Such as,


So we know MC's second blessing is [Monster Training], which allows her to train and tame monsters. In a previous chapter, MC said that she can use/talk to the monsters she's tamed beforehand even in a full moon night (where the blessings don't work/are weakened), because the monsters were already tamed already and couldn't be 'un-tamed'.

BUT THEN, in a later chapter, it's said that children with blessings shouldn't go through a lot of stress, since that would cause them to loose control of their blessing and cause havoc. This should be the same for MC, so she uses a scheme where she fakes being under stress and has her dragon flow around the empire, making it seem like the dragon was 'out of control' due to her being under stress. MC used this strategy to show that people shouldn't mess with her, or else the dragon would recognize her stress and destroy them---later on, she even fakes a hunger strike, which leads some people to be scared that the dragon would go out of control again.

This was smart, but my question is, why did no one question these two events? Why would her being under stress and loosing control over her blessing effect the already-tamed monsters?

And I know, that there are some explainable solutions to this.
'The dragon must've recognized his owner's stress and got distressed and angry as well, so it's not that she lost control, it's just that the dragon is loyal.' But, shouldn't this factors make MC a threat to their position/power in the eyes of the imperial family? Why wouldn't they name her a threat?



And, MC solving every single problem, and another problem immediately being thrown to her face to solve; this pattern wasn't even subtle, it was literally right to my face, how could I not notice it??? But I'm glad that the writer finally decided to acknowledge this in CH147, where a plan that she did failed.

'I had been careless because everything had gone according to my thoughts before.'



And the way Liantyn could easily bribe the guard on MC's door with just a few coins (in the tooth-ache event) ??? Would the duke really put such a careless guard to protect MC??? It's just unrealistic and doesn't make sense.

Also Liantyn was such a f*cking bit*h she did not deserve forgiveness from MC (happens way later).
ong if I was MC I would've made my dragon eat that s*upid bit*h from the amount of times shes f*cked around


But to be honest, I could care less about the mistakes, because this is just that good of a story for me. I like all of the characters, I like the plot, I love the MC.

I love, love, love the MC. <<less

Novel recommended to skim currently.

Novel read up to chapter 14 with Travis Translations, and then MTL’d to 16.

MC is a cautious abused neglected girl who crosses into another even worse neglected 3 year old who proceeds to be cute, suffer greatly, and benefit others with her knowledge from being older.

... more>> Story and writing is a bit weak, but has enough of a pictured environment that one can sympathize and understand why the MC does what she does. Not well written, but serviceable.

+3/10 MC acts cute (speaking wise) and sticks to her family (so she can survive) in a reasonable enough manner (despite defeating another child, an evil housekeeper, and scum relatives). <<less

    • PLOT - The premise is the typical reincarnation childcare plot BUT the execution of events are HELLA GOOD It's a pity that there are only 105 translated chapters that are available for free as of now.
    • CHARACTERS - The MC is cunning, sly, clever, adorable & funny. She's not a mary sue. She stands up for herself even against people who are older and bigger than her. She knows when to use her cuteness and when to back down. She knows how to use her people efficiently. I love everything about her! The supporting characters are fleshed-out too. The villains that have appeared till the latest update are third-rates at most though. It will be more exciting if there's at least one villain who uses his head and is as clever as the MC so there will be more thrill when MC tries to sabotage the villain's plans.
    • BLESSINGS - The MC's blessing and how it works is very interesting.
Anyway, I've actually read this twice already. The first time, I stopped at c51 cause that's the latest update at the time and now, I have to stop and wait for more updates again

The start off point for this novel is insane, the relationships, the treatment and the family dynamic, they are all crazy! BUT, the way the main character handles things but isn't a know it all or someone that a complete genius is satisfying. It's a good novel and will definitely get you hooked!

I really like this story! (I read the translations by Readhive and thank you so much for picking it up!)

Her relationship with her grandfather and father is really cute. I'm looking forward to seeing her interact with her brothers. The idea of her transmigrating inside the novel as the og!heroine of the og!story who is actually the villainess in the novel is quite unique and funny, haha. She may be the original heroine but she's actually the villainess... It's like poking fun at all the villainous story tropes 😂

Edit:... more>> I was happy to see that this updated but the new translations... are quite bad. I'm... not sure how to feel about this, because on one hand, I'm grateful that this got picked up again, but on the other, I miss the previous translator so much 😢 <<less
