    Alright, give me recommendation on novels which MC can be rooted on

    Maybe what I want is too vague, but it seems that currently I find it is so hard to find novel in which I wholeheartedly want the MC to success.

    Arrogant, too OP that literally the entire plot is just stomping some noobs in the story, braindead, can throw whatever morality or thought when meeting beauties, murderer, inconsistent character etc.

    I prefer
    • Male MC
    • Adventure
    • Action
    • not BL
    Thanks!

    you want to "root for" the MC and for him to "succeed".

    You can look at the Lin Fan-verse, author of Ultimate Scheming System. The MC never had any morality and is always a shameless trickster
    you can look at fanfictions, they fulfill all your requirements

    Lord of the Mysteries
    same author with Throne of Magical Arcana.. Mc truly starts from zero, no sudden power ups, always use meticulous planning to beat enemies, villains truly think and not just to elevate the Mc, etc..

    Leveling Up through Eating. I haven’t read the novel, but I really like the MC from the comic version.

    The Faraway Paladin. A protagonist who was raised properly by his mummy adopted mommy (get it?), his adopted skeleton father, and adopted ghost grandfather. He was raised to be very virtuous, strong, and kind. One of the few protagonists that fit the title of a hero by description.

    The Girl Who Bore the Flame Ring. A bag of sunshine in a dark and dreary world. Her constant optimism in search of happiness despite her surroundings' circumstance will surely make you root for her. Though, yes, the protagonist is female.

    The godsfall chronicles. In this novel, the feeling of wanting to support the MC only ever is present in the early stages of the novel when he's still a naive yet pitiful child who's chasing his dreams of reaching a faraway utopia. Him constantly being pushed down by reality yet continuing to get right back up on his feet is very endearing.

    Super minion (Royal Road novel). The morbid innocence of the protagonist will make you adore him (it?). As an artificial doppleganger(?) who escaped from the lab he was created, he holds zero knowledge of the world around him, basically resulting in him exploring the world and learning like a newborn child, except that this newborn child can tear you to pieces while looking at a recipe on tofu burgers. Speaking of tofu burgers, his name is Tofu. Why? He chose that name 'cause he likes tofu burgers. Doesn't that already make you want to root for him?

    Possessing nothing. Have you ever looked at a person whose drive and sheer effort in reaching a goal simply makes you want to hope for his or her success? Well, this is basically one of the selling points of this novel. He's talentless, but that doesn't hold him back from reaching his goal(s), in fact, that just makes his feats and achievements all the more impressive.

    Ze Tian Ji. Hmmm. This MC's characteristic is basically a combination of all the protagonists I've mentioned above (except for The Girl Who Bore the Flame Ring, he's not optimistic about his dire health condition.) He's very innocent and ignorant of social customs; young and naive; a crippled consititution yet unwilling to give up (this is separate from his health condition); and a very kind and gentle temperament.
    The original has long since been discontinued.

    Yeah, but that makes it all the sadder.
