    Looking for novels with any kind of leveling system, be it cultivation, magic, getting xp from monsters e.t.c. where MC:
    1. If not crushing everyone, then at least always in a somewhat controllable situation. Where you don't just wait for a plot armor to appear at a critical moment but can see a stable way forward.
    2. Uses the abilities that are not too generic. Like it's not your usual dual cultivation using sword killing everybody. Making robots, raising plants(without "farm" in the title), having teleportation/illusion/summons/sub dimension, researching magic, using modern/sci-fi weapons in cultivation world or cultivation/magic in sci-fi world(having something current world does not).
    Though generic abilities are also fine if there is something present, that makes them feel unique.

    Also there is no restriction on quality. Chinese novels are acceptable even if only MTL is available.

    This Tales of the World Devouring Serpent is the only novel that comes to my mind as of now. The male mc here gets bigger and stronger as he eats.

    PS: Links in NU are not available but the novel already has completed translation.

    Op request sounds to me for more simplistic and generically power level MCs, like Emperor’s Domination (and god forgive me for tip this piece of shit).

    If i may try a suggestion, from OP description, Seoul Station Necromancer and Upgrade Specialist in Another World, despite being far away from epic works, are good novels that fit the request.

    Btw, nice tips in this thread, despite probably being not what OP requested, i may find myself camping here if good tips like those keep being given in this thread :)!

    Domination felt quite generic to me. Your typical "I know everything" reincarnation novel Like the Alchemy Emperor of the Divine Dao.
    I can give some examples of what I have in mind(Some are comics):
    Mechanical Emperor
    Abe the Wizard
    Shinka no Mi
    I'm the Sorcerer King
    Cultivator Against Hero Society
    To Be a Power in the Shadows
    Pocket Hunting Dimension
    Infinite Mana(a couple of novels with similar names)
    Everybody is Kung Fu Fighting, While I Started a Farm
    I Can Give the Origin of Everything
    Spiritual Energy: I Just Want To Farm Peacefully
    I Have a Time and Space Garden
    Magus Tech
    Master of Science and Technology
    The Sinful Life of the Emperor(though the appearance of the cosmic emperor kind of stopped the MC having everything "under control" so it is the example of a situation where you wait a thousand chapters to see how the plot armor will resolve the issue)

    Idk if it's relevant or not... But since I don't see anyone suggest it.. " Second Life Ranker " is a really good one...
