World-hopping or Power Fantasy (no JP or KR)

World-hopping or Power Fantasy (no JP or KR)
List is not in order. If you want to laugh, i also recommend Sun Knight and Cultivation Chat Group.

I really like power fantasies, and have specially fallen in love with the world-hopping genre. I don't enjoy romance in books or female authors, and JP and KR novels are cringe (Moonlight Scultor was fun back when i just started reading, though).

All books here have atleast a few hundred chapters translated. Please leave any recommendations in the comments.

Very good book from my favorite author (Get Lost). This book is peak power fantasy. In the first 200-300 chapters, i only liked it a bit. However, after the world-hopping starts, i fell in love. There's an arc where he reincarnates into a normal rabbit and has the objective of making the entire forest vegetarian (including the wolves). ... more>>

    WMW is the one that is very good not flawed at all. All the hype about RI but at end it all started with leylin. 

    You missed carefree path of dreams. This is same as way of the devil and i rate both of them equally but little bit biased towards way of the devil for mystery.

    And thumbs up for the good list. WMW must be higher though cause it is definitely better than most of the novels mentioned. I have read all the novels except custom made demon king and i can say your list is very well made for world hopping genre. Trafford's trading club is very good but it has no relation to this genre.

      Will read it, thanks for the rec.

      WMW is aweasome, and the novel which influenced my reading taste he most. It made me addicted to CN novels and actual manly, ruthless protagonists. But after i read The Wizard World, i felt like the first 200+ chapters were just a copy. I'm not complaining from a moral standpoint. It's just that 1/4 of the book was written by Get Lost and just edited by The Plagiarist.  WMW is better than Wizard World, sure. But look at how much it copied early on, from what i can remember:

      They both are from noble families, they both train a bit in knight arts with the computer chip before going to wizard school, they both have an item which lets them get admitted into the school for free, they both go to a necromantic school, the school has an animal gatekeeper and a password, the early powerlevels are the exact same, the powers and way spells work are the same, the way they both delve into alchemy is the same, the way they both leave the school while they're apprentices to accumulate resources, the fact that they don't stay in school after becoming an official wizard, the fact that they're searching for the ancient wizard's way of power, the whole dreamrealm plot(not sure what it's called, the place where everything is weird). The only major difference early on is that WMW skips the first 20 chapters of Wizard World, and that's it.

      This made it a flawed book in my mind, since it basically grabbed the entire start of another book and only changed the middle and end of the story (which still are heavily influenced by TWW plotlines).

      I added Trafford it because i saw the different "stories" as a twist on world-hopping. But you're right, it's a different genre altogether

    Very well made list. I have read everything except Reverend Insanity, Devils cage. About WMW I have no complaints. For me it doesn't matter if it's plagiarism or not as long as it makes the novel interesting and believe me when I say TWW was not interesting at all.

    I could recommend some more for your list.
    Bank of the Universe (Trafford in fantasy world with a immature protagonist)
    Carefree Path of Dreams (somewhat of an upgrade to WMW, mc isn't evil per say but very selfish which I like)

      Thanks for the recommendation. I started reading Carefree Path of Dreams yesterday. After that, i'll check out Bank of the Universe (sounds interesting. Leylin still falls short of being evil enough to own a bank)

      If you liked the rest of the list, i'm sure you'll love Reverend Insanity,

      @Liero Dirlewanger i really enjoyed 48 hours a day i mean writing is next level, the pirate arc was nostalgic and very entertaining. It is another high quality novel if author manages the same quality like up to 350. Lol switcherland and finland border got me laughing so hard but writing is exceptional. When author says mc is intelligent than mc is intelligent without sacrificing IQ of other characters. It feels real and awesome.

      Ultimate evolution was kinda okay but not that entertaining. Writing is subpar other characters dont feel alive. Mc is not intelligent at all but author keeps saying mc is intelligent i cant help but puke.

      The devil's cage was entertaining but too much happening in game and at the end mc is shut in neet who just plays game. Writing is at least better than ultimate evolution. More elaborate schemes and good intelligent characters.

      Custom made demon king was kind of meh. tr*shy writing has some redeeming qualities but system is too op and it makes everything brainless. I cant help but roll my eyes when mc thinks of himself as intelligent guy.

      Nightmare's call is good i mean i dont know i like all get lost novels except wizard world.

      @Daresan 48 hours a day has a reallly cool concept. I have high hopes for it. Wonder if players remain as ordinary humans until the end.

      Ultimate Evolution was tr*sh, but his tank power is very fun to read about. I also like how he had a proper backstory as a sailor. I read it back when i was an unexperienced reader, so i enjoyed it more than i should have. The writer writes in a very odd way, i remember him describing himself (the author) drinking redbull atleast 3 times through the book. 

      After reading Way of the Devil, i realized that you shouldn't take the MC's of these kinds of novels seriously. They say they are smart, but instead just punch their way through. They say they're righteous, yet just do whatever they feel like. They say they don't rely too much on the system (lol). I just take it as a dose of ironic humor.

      If you find more novels, please do recommend them to me. I was starting to search Royal Road (clear.png) before being recommended Carefree Path of Dreams. I sure hope i never fall that low again.

      @Liero Dirlewanger I am currently reading Reincarnation paradise hope you can give it a try. Translation is shitty but story is better i heard from someone but i dont know. It is infinity genre. And yea sage who transcended samsara it is the best novel ( i dont want to spoil you so i wont tell much but read it ). It is written by everyone's beloved cuttlefish that loves diving so you can expect a quality novel. The only downside is translation which sucks so hard i want to rip them apart for ruining such masterpiece but readable 

      I dont know i havent read high quality novels in a long time after LoM ,My house of horrors , Release that witch. 48 hours a day is novel that i will say is high quality. I found it very different from other 99% tr*shes only due to writing it feels smooth and flawless.  I will copy paste my list here i hope you can find something.

      @Daresan Thanks a lot bro. I've already read all of them except Reincarnation Paradise, since i was waiting for more translated chapters. I'll start reading it soon enough, i guess.

      I'll give my thoughts about the less known Cuttlefish that Loves Diving novels, since you seem to really like him.

       I read a few hundred chapters of The Sage who Transcended Samsara. The translation is terrible, and on a novel which relies so much on plotting and intelligence, it's basically novel ruining. I really liked early on when he was a bloodthirsty monk, but afterwards he became a generic cultivator protag.  I also didn't like how every world is just generic CN cultivation world, never changing. I agree with you, with a better translation it'd be a good novel.

       I read Martial Arts Master. The name is very misleading, since it's a romance novel which barely touches on cultivation outside of combat. It was cute, but it's annoying how much combat there is for a romance novel, specially since only about half involves the MC. 

      Throne of Magical Arcana i dropped early on, around chapter 70 i think. Didn't like how nothing was happening, and how the focus was on music. Do you think that if i stuck on with it for a few dozen chapters longer i'd like it?

      I really hope Webnovel picks up more The Plagiarist novels and the sequel to Devil's Cage, but they seem to be more focused on BL and female romance novels nowadays, since those are the most popular on the site.

      Again, thanks for the recs bro. I recently read Mages are too OP, which i thought was a fun little novel, but far from a masterpiece. You should try it if you haven't.

      @Liero Dirlewanger brother i think You should try those cuttlefish's novels again and read it till the end. His novels are very different from usual bullshit. There is no chinese author whose novels are as well written as his. His each novel are take on different genre, which he suceeds each time. World building is very intricate, intelligent and humanlike characters, overeaching plot ,different twist and turns throughout the story. His novels are completely on different level than rest.

      Shitty translator ruined his most of the work. Only lord of mysteries has good translation

    The author ruined mystical journey towards the end and the end of the novel was totally s*upid don't even get me started on the last 3 arcs ok third to the last wasn't that bad but in the final 2 arcs the MC was behaving as a completely different person he degraded from the MC I knew in the 1st and 2nd arc to a hormone controlled teenager and the decisions he made towards the end of the last arc doesn't even make sense in any way

      @FIEND Soul of Negary and Reincarnation Paradise is on my list, i'm waiting for more chapters to be translated. Catching up on the like 15 novels i still haven't finished yet

      Trafford i read until 300-400, i think. It was very enjoyable, but it was also at the time i was just starting to read this kind of novel, so everything was nice and pretty

      Thanks for the recs man. Will check them out. It feels oddly agonizing to not have anything to read in the future, even though i still have so many chapters to read.
