    So I want to read this novel, "After Transmigrating Into a Villain Cannon Fodder Male Zerg" and I don't know what zerg is there is a female zerg and male zerg so I am kinda lost like what are the differences aside of the sex (female/male). And is this book seme protag or something? Because I don't really like reading seme protag so I will not read it if it is.

    Thanks for the person whose gonna answer this thread

    Zergs are the insect race which is usually the enemy in the story of an interstellar webnovel setting.
    Depending on how the author wants it, they can just be purely hive minded insect that ravage anything in sight, a humanoid insect, a human with insect body parts(i.e. insect wings), or a human shapeshifting insect.
    I hope this helps :blobmelt:
    Edit: Also depending on the genre, and how the author wants it, the genders would differ.
    Seme tag means the MC is the Seme

    That just mean that the one who tops have a cute over all appearance, I guess.
    The tags usually have definitions of it in the NU site. This is the cute protag def:
    Definition:
    This tag should be used when the main character gives off a cute or heartwarming feeling.
    So do what you will on that info :blob_patpat:

    Addition to missluna's post:
    Also depending on the author:
    In some BL Zerg novel, there are real female Zergs meaning women, in others the "females" are males who can get pregnant. In a sense you can imagine them as "ger" or "omega", just without the heat and pheromone matter.
    Examples for Zerg novel...
    "I'm not human" (MC is shou/uke and NOT a female! He can't get pregnant, ML is gong/seme)
    "Home of the Zerg" (MC is gong/seme, ML is a "female")
    In both novel, Zerg are humans but with insect body parts.
    I haven't read Villain Cannon Fodder Male Zerg yet, but it should be along the same line, I guess

    I don't know if you still need this, but seme means gong/top person who is doing the penetration. (Uke/Shou/Bottom/person being penetrated) the seme protagonist tag means the MC is a top. Since the cute protagonist tag is attached this most likely means the top(MC) in this case isn't one of those stotic overbearing CEO types. The MC is more of a tsundere character, so they try to be serious but end up coming off as cute.
    Since it's Zerg setting, that means that instead of evolving from mammals, they evolved from insects. So expect egg laying I stead of live births and breeding seasons plus a gender based society. One gender is better then the others. (On a side note, you will also find Zerg as the enemy in a lot of interstellar novels. These are more like locusts and hive mind swarms. )
    Let me know if you have anymore question or if something wasn't clear.

    The MC is the seme. All "males" are weak and protected as there's so few of them whilst "females" have stronger builds.

    The MC has transmigrated and tries to continue the attitude of the original body (rude/entitled ect) but comes across cute as you can tell he doesn't mean what he says and looks like he is acting spoiled.

    He later evolves and becomes stronger.

    Generally zerg novels have specific tropes too. In zerg novels expect:

    - Males as pampered petite gongs in a highly patriarchal society where females are a dime a dozen
    - Forced matching society where males can pick their favorite from a virtual line up
    - Lots of torture or non-con BDSM type elements sometimes involving death (but this usually excludes MC if he's transmigrated with "modern human values")
    - Females are lower class beings so it's a harem with the queen and the concubines type system (also excludes MC if he's a transmigrated human)
    - Females as the main workers on society and also hold high powered positions but still beholden to the patriarchy
    - Occasionally the setting includes females vs sub-females where sub-females are either more petite/fertile or less petite/fertile with physiological differences depending on the author
