    Hello hello!

    Soo I'm kinda looking for novels, manga, or animes where the protagonist are the villains/bad guys? Sort of like Overlord, Youjo Senki? Hoping that you guys could recommend some new ones!

    Thanks!

    Hero Killer from Webtoon. I just read it recently, I'd say it's pretty good but only a few chapters so far.

    Youjo Senki is .... well tanya isn't a bad guy..... a cunt and psychopathic but definitely not THE BAD GUY one could argue


    also
    Redo Healer - yeah this guy is a bad guy
    Dungeon Defense - pretty much everyone is the bad guy
    Executed sage - the cunt is trying to be a bad guy

    This one is really ambiguous on who the actual protagonist is.

    +1 for Regressor Instruction Manual!
    For a more wholesome take, Trash of the Count's Family. The only one who considers the MC as a villain is the MC, hahaha.

    just because the heroes are bad, doesn't mean the villain isn't the protag imo.

    I don't think Oga can count as a villain. He's at most a delinquent

    Villians and hero model sucks, Main character is fine but if the novel is as black and white as this then that would be pretty shitty novel targeted for kids
