    I've been reading "Against the Gods" and it was quite good, but when I read about 700 chapters I began to hate main character. He is too overpowered and too arrogant. So I was wondering if there are any novels that have protagonist who isn't overpowered but still clever, intelligent and maybe a little bit evil.

    Godly Model Creator. MC starts off weak but he’s smart and works hard to become stronger.

    hehe if you want the MC in Against the Gods to tune down a bit you can wait until the 900s when the power scales change completely. by the seven hundreds the MC has "outgrown" the world he is in and just has to finish up a baddie or two before moving on. the 6-700s are a bit of a lull in the plot between struggles and trainings IMO

    I am surprised at how late you started hating the protagonist of Against the Gods. And even more surprised at the fact that your reason for hating him is not his pervertedness, but something else entirely.

    Anyways, give Warlock of the Magus World a try.

    Read Against the Gods a bit more. atleast to 950 or so I wont spoil but with the recent events happening its really really refreshing to see how Yun Che reacts to things now. Alot more development with the recent chapters

    Sevens is good and Mushoku Tensei. most of the time the main characters have to fight enemies stronger then themselves and require clever thinking or sometimes running away.

    Not really OP, but has some sort of cheat, though uses it very sparingly: side character transmigration- last boss is no joke

    If you want a read that has a protaganist with no powers I would recommend Release that Witch almost everytime it is truly a great read.

    I wouldn’t recommend ATG to even my worst enemies dental floss

    I remember in Mushoku Tensei at the age of 4-5 he becomes one of the stronger mages and at around 15-20 he can give a fight against a demigod if thats not OP I don’t know what is XD it’s the story that got me hooked on web/light novels though so it’s a good one

    he is extremely op but not an annoying way, he is not arrogant and the novel is so fun to read.
