    Paradise of Demons and Gods (really good novel, pure revenge)
    Whisper of the Nightingale (not on NU, google to find, uber revenge)
    The Count of Monte Cristo (The original revenge novel)

    Technically TDG is about revenge. He died because of that old Tyrant guy (forgot the name).

    Sovereign of Judgment, the more I read the more it sounds like revenge. MC assumes his situation is a "game" and theres an audience/GMs that are watching people die for amusement/random reason.

    Even if it isnt, its a nice read anyways. Reminds me of KotB and Reincarnator.

    Okay how about obsessive deranged yandere with a smidge of revenge?

    because she was thrown away by her family she turned to the demons after being saved by them

    So In a way it's got revenge

    But she doesn't really care about getting revenge. It just happens because she's obsessed with you-know-who. In fact her creepy obsessiveness is one of the main reasons I dropped the novel. The plot was suffering due to her existence and unlikability

    I'm not sexist--It's just awkward with a female protagonist.

    I think A Step into the Past can be considered since the MC seeks revenge on his enemies for most of the story.
    Tate no yuusha definitely works
    Another new one I'm reading is Queen Agents No 11....It's quite dark right now so I don't know if it's your cup of tea.

    Return of Shield Hero iirc (i forgot the exact title lololol get used to call it shieldbro)
    Most of xianxia are based on revenge but not on a really long term
    PDG is one of the long termed ones sadly it's still on early chaps~

    Eh Voldermort was in this novel? Damn I missed it...

    Yeah but in all seriousness I just stuck around to see
    the harem members get cut in the storyboth figuratively and literally

    And I kinda get the feeling that when she finds out that you-know-who sees her as a disposable pawn she'll one day just lose her shit and go yandere(well more than usual)

    When she had the one girl executed, I just decided that the story had become too farcical for me to be interested in it.
