    Hi guys, just wanted to know if the novel has a butterfly effect? I like novels like these but I just drop them immediately if there’s no changes at all due to the MC’s actions.

    Thanks!

    yes, and no It's not like we know what happens in the original story so it does not really matter besides being used as a plot device. I soon forget about it, but it is usually used again to move along the story or the MC knows something which is kept hidden from the reader.

    As said, yes and no. The reason is because the novel the MC read, the other MC had an ability of going back in time when they died. So while MC makes changes, a lot of the stuff he does were things the other MC did in other reincarnations. Add to the fact that the whole thing is very scenario based. (so the impact you have is limited within the scenario)

    So while they do have a butterfly effect, it isn't enough to derail the MC's knowledge due to the circumstances.

    No, cuz what the mc is doing is based on the true end which is something past the 20th reincarnation.

    But he did change the 3rd reincarnation

    ...the fact that the Absolute Throne of Seoul was destroyed wasn't enough butterfly effect for you?

    The novel in the novel has over 3,000 chapters, the fifth scenario is only around 200 in the novel in the novel, so it's still a long way to go. And there are butterfly effects.

    The novel state that originally MC had died over hundred times.
