Generally, there are many CN webnovels out there that love to hide a mysterious background pertaining to either his past memories or his parents are extremely strong, most of the times the parents usually leave an op item with the protagonist, however, for this, we will talk about the talents of the protagonist because of his background.

The following webnovels mainly focus on the talents and not some “cheat item”:

Overview: All the webnovels are set in a XuanHuan world, with the protagonist possessing the bloodline or talent because of their parents that they never knew was one of the strongest in the world.

Usually, they will have to cross multiple realms and encounter various plot, then starting to doubt themselves and finally realized that their parents are still alive. Or, was told by either the father/mother that their husband/wife is actually brought back to their ancestral clan because of the taboo of marrying him/her.

Most of their talents also spread to sub-profession, alchemist, blacksmiths, most likely it is a “rare and prestigious” profession in the particular xuan huan world.

Once the protagonist found out that their parents are actually alive and hidden somewhere in the world, the will do whatever they can to find them and eventually becomes the reason for plot progression.

If you like to read webnovels that has a plot that consists of occasional op helpers that is pseudo plot armor because of the MC’s background that he didn’t know and talents that allow the MC to progress faster than anyone else then leave the side characters every arc, try anyone of them.

Then he will borrow money, get a gaming set, then abuse their “body movements from the future”, and use some skill that allows them to climb places they cannot climb and then obtain op equipment.

Next, he will either have ways to power level, earn money, start a guild, fight against the previous life betrayers.

P.S There will be usually a “noob” but loyal buddy, (usually a fatass) that helped him all the way in his previous life and the protagonist carries him in this life.


Type – VRMMO Transmigration

[CN] Night Ranger (735/735) [Completely Translated] [Eastern Fantasy, Unique Classes, No other players, Hidden Plot]

[CN] Advent of the Archmage (726/726) [Completely Translated] [Eastern Fantasy, Mages, Hidden Plot]

Overview: For both NR and AOTA, they have similar world-building, feels like eastern fantasy and they will slowly progress into saving the world, with many hidden plots gradually getting revealed on why they actually transmigrated. The levels system is very small though, so you will not see level grinding. More of an adventure story.

[CN] The Legendary Mechanic (952/1346 ++) [On-going Translation] [Sci-fi, User Become NPC, Real Players] {Becomes NPC that gives out quest while progressing, in an extremely technologically advanced world}

[CN] The Amber Sword (360/1457) [On-going Translation] [Eastern Fantasy, Swords and magic, Lots of POV, NPC world] {More on Aristocracy and talking than actual grinding}

[KR] Trash of the count’s family (590/594+ ) [On-going Translation and writing] [Different from the rest, more on living peacefully than interacting with the plot, but on how he failed to live peacefully lol]

Overview: Although they have extremely similar names, they are written by different authors. However, as you can tell from the names, they are similar in the plot too. The protagonists are readers or writers of the novel, where they are suddenly transported to the novel’s world.

However, because they are devoted readers, they know almost everything about the plot, or at least until the part where they stopped writing. An extremely new take on the whole “memories of the world” kind of plot.

This gives the author new ways to write the story, for example, you will be able to know how the antagonists move and think because, well they know everything about the world. Or how the actual novel’s protagonist moves.

[JP] My Death Flags Show No Sign of Ending [116/116 + ] [On-going Translations and writing] {Transmigrated into a game, trying to survive as the king of trash, schemes, and plot}

The main factor of this webnovel is he uses his memories to help in politics and plot which is more than the action and cultivation}

Similar novels by the same author of (TTNH): I am supreme, realms in the firmament – his webnovels can be confusing, but will be understood if you read it all the way. Especially I am supreme.

[KR] Reincarnator (492/492) [Completely Translated]

[KR] Second Life Ranker (234/800) [On-going Translations] [Memory transfer from twin brother, still same type of plot]

[KR] A Returner’s magic should be special (179/314) [On-going Translations] [Weak MC, but OP analysis ability]

Overview: The protagonists of the webnovels were humanity’s last hope of defeating a tower climb or dungeon, they were the survivors of the whole population and was to the point of ‘clearing’ the tower. However, they still lost and both got sent back in time.

Which will then lead to them obtaining the most contribution for every level and abusing whatever they can to become as strong as possible.

Because of their memories, they are able to sacrifice most people while considering the bigger picture and groom a rare few ‘contestants’.

2. Spirit Advisor

Spirit advisors

Spirit Advisors are always the best read as it makes the whole reading of hundreds of chapters much more engaging as compared to the MC being alone.



[CN] Undefeated god of war (943/943) [Completely Translated] [Trainer trying to restore the legacy of his army]

[CN] Martial God Asura (4389 / 4779) [On-going Translation and writings] [More of a companion in his long journey]


Overview: Spirit Advisors are one of the best plot devices IMO, it gives a plot-driving factor and provides training for the protagonist in a not so overly excessive manner. They do not get overpowered instantly and still goes through the process of training. But with less twists and turns and more guidance.



Honestly, though, systems are like the bread and butter of a transmigration webnovels, except for the typical xuanhuan cultivation webnovels, having a cheat with a system or game elements is considered normal. Here are some interesting webnovels with a system.
