overpowered protagonists with a past [kr/jp]

overpowered protagonists with a past [kr/jp]
settings: ranker system, fantasy world, and urban fantasy

focus: protagonists that are super overpowered and may be hiding their true identities/abilities for different reasons

note: i'm adding novels as i read them, so not all novels fitting the criteria will be here. pls give me recs! i love lazy overpowered protagonists the most (ง・▽・)ว

the list goes from #1 (my favorite) to least favorites (but still very good)
i'll be compiling and modifying this list as i read.
