    Please recommend any novels with...

    No arrogant young masters
    No face slapping
    No spirit uncle
    No overpowered cheats

    ... if they exist

    All of the cultivation has at least ONE arrogant young master. It's always there, like air.
    Try Desolate Era, it has fewer arrogant young masters

    Beware of Chicken over on royalroad sounds like what you might be looking for, though arrogant young masters do show up once or twice. And I guess the MC does kinda have a cheat, but he just wants to be a farmer so he doesn't really realize it.

    to give a brief summary: standard isekai xianxia start except this time it's a genre savvy canadian taking over the body, he immediately fucks off from the sect to go to the lowest level region to be a farmer. But it's not just slice of life, there's actually some really interesting plot threads and deconstruction of xianxia tropes that keeps things interesting.

    Definitely like great sage. It's a great novel with a harem that actually works somehow. The girls actually have some sort of features that makes them stand out instead of just the same thing with a slightly different personality. It starts out slow but definitely a good read.

    I don't know about overpowered cheats, but 'Beware of Chicken' on RoyalRoad fits.
