21+ Manhwa Where The MC Is A Villain (RANKED!)

Manhwa Where The MC Is A Villain Thumbnail

Mysterious, cold, cruel, and super handsome, Villains are really the best. We all have that dark side inside us that we would love to embrace but can’t because we don’t want to end up in prison. So it’s nice to see someone else do the things that we can’t. I’m not saying that I want to kill someone but maybe taking an eye or a leg would satisfy me. That’s okay, right?

Anyways, here I have a list of Manhwas where the Main Character is a Villain.

Manhwa Storyline:

Yun-Jae’s life was a happy one until he lost the ones he cherished the most in a terrible accident. After the death of his daughter and wife, his life had no more meaning. Slowly losing himself in depression, he was about to give it all up.

At that moment, a diary appears before him. Looks like it was written by himself, but not the current him, him from the future.

I can bring back my family! That’s what the diary was saying. He will receive an invitation to a game, this game will be set in a parallel world. The winner of the game will be able to make a wish and reviving dead people is a piece of cake. While any normal person will at least doubt this information, Yun-Jae clung to the only ray of hope he had left.

Armed with the knowledge of the future, he will destroy anyone that stands in front of his victory. Cruelty, dirty moves, manipulation… any method is okay if it means seeing the faces of his loved ones once more.

Manhwa Storyline:

The law is not flawless, personally, I would say it’s somewhat unfair. And I am not the only one who thinks so… what do you think?

This Korean Manhwa tells the story of a citizen who decided to become the law itself. The current laws are no good, so he will create the perfect system. Just how arrogant can you be?

The Vigilante that “protects” the streets is terrorizing the population, taking the lives of anyone he deemed unworthy to live. When a mere human starts playing God only bloodshed will follow, Death Note style.

Manhwa Storyline:

Seth Kwon is a natural fighting prodigy and the MC of this Korean Webtoon. It’s not just that he is good at it, he also loves it. It makes his blood rise every time his fists crush someone’s face.

After leaving a kid half dead, his mother made him promise to never fight again. Ever since then his classmates started believing he was a pushover and the senseless bullying began.

The monster rose again when he received a message. The father he never met just passed, but he was always watching over him from the very beginning. “Stop getting your ass kicked”, he wrote and Seth awakened. He inherited the Yakuza faction his father was the head of, along with the most successful company of all Korea.

Just imagine the damage that a rich untouchable overpowered rampaging beast will do! Now above the law, free from his promise and with an overwhelming amount of pumped-up rage boiling inside of him, imagining the resulting explosion is giving me goosebumps. Oh, and last detail, the most powerful man in Korea is now a 17-year-old brat.

Manhwa Storyline:

Cliché would be the description of this Korean Manhwa. But no good recommendation list would be complete without one. The MC fell asleep after finishing reading a novel. When he opened his eyes, guess where he found himself? You all got it right? He was in the novel in the body of the villain.

Knowing what his ultimate fate would be if the story continued to unfold smoothly, he started coming up with ways to ensure his survival. The first step, turn the villain into a useless minor character. One problem, the previous owner already did quite a lot of damage.

Personally, I would say don’t ruin our story, there is no plot if the villain disappears, think of the readers!! No one ever hears of sacrifices for the greater good nowadays.

Sorry, Cliché number 2. This Korean Webtoon has exactly the same plot as “Trapped in a Webnovel as a Good for Nothing”. The most noticeable difference is in the art. The aesthetic in this Manhwa is out of this world. I highly recommend it just because of how beautiful it is.

The weakest cultivator awakened. His only ability is to copy that of others. The price to pay is pain beyond imagination. However, pain is a small sacrifice in exchange for ultimate power. Let’s steal the best cultivator’s abilities and come out on top of the world. Money and prestige will follow.

There is no sweeter feeling than crushing the arrogant pricks, who thought they were strong. The look on their faces when they saw who humiliated them was a work of art.

Tombs started popping up all around the world. Inside those tombs are relics that can grant you power beyond your imagination. If you dare to venture into one of them, either you die or you come out rich and overpowered. As a result, a new career orientation was created: Tomb Raiding. Among them was one that was shrewder and more talented than all others. Betrayed by his boss, he watched his whole team get devoured before his eyes 

One leg severed and a giant snake in front of him, it was supposed to be the end for him as well. That’s what we all thought until a relic made his apparition and brought him back to the past, to a time where Tombs didn’t exist yet.

Tomb Raider

To take his revenge against the world, the MC is seeking all the worlds’ relics. Knowing where they are going to appear and how to solve their riddles, he is on the road to becoming an actual God amongst humans.

Not only is he greedy, but his hate against the person that wronged him also made him turn his back on humanity. Instead of preventing the disasters to come, he initiates them to get what he wants.

Mysteriously, all girls fall in love with his twisted and cruel personality. So, not only does he get power but multiple girlfriends as well. I’m turning into an evil person right that instant.

He was granted an ability, he is the weakest player of the game with the lowest level possible. No chance of survival. Fortunately, he is more cunning than meets the eye.

He came across a warrior and deduced that he was a regressor. The perfect meat shield around. Let’s make use of him. Using his immense manipulation skills and his intellect, he now has the real hero of this story dancing in the palm of his hands. By making him believe he is working to save the survivors and this fantastic world, the hero does his bidding.

In reality, he is only building an empire where the MC reins through subtle tyranny. How can someone be that naïve? The entire camp is terrified of him, but the overpowered Hero looks up to him!

He is bound by nothing, not even morals. Ruthless, merciless, and cruel, he uses his wits and manipulation skills to rule over the battlefield.

Cries of suffering and screams of despair, terrible sounds that would make any man fall into hopelessness are only music to his ears. Music to entertain the game he plays with his breathing pawns.

Those types of Manhwas aren’t as popular as they should be. Extremely underrated, it’s the job of the fans to share their favorite ones with the world so this genre can spread and grow.

Let’s work together so we can get many more stories in the near future!
