    As i mention on the title i am looking for mangas, webtoons etc even for animes that the MC is hiding his/her overpowered strength because either they do not want to stand out or they are too lazy or because they want to act as the weakest one on the whole worlds. THeir power can be anything like too clever but act as dumb, good on martial arts but act like loser, the strongest wizard but act as lvl 1 newbie etc.
    I know that there are a lot so feel free to post them all here. :smile::smile:

    • Feng Qi Cang Lan - a Chinese manhua! It’s long and still ongoing. The FL acts dumb or weak but is actually the most OP and shows off and brags when it’s the right time.
    • Feng ni Tianxia - another long, ongoing Chinese manhua. I personally like FQCL more but this one has a weak princess who’s secretly a reincarnated thief/assassin. The story is all over the place though and I have no idea how it’ll end but FL fits the description. Maybe you’ll like it.
    • Your Throne - licensed on Webtoon. Secret body-switching and both characters learn to pretend and protect themself with their own skills. If you like revenge and a lotta lying, you’ll like this one.
    Wish I could provide you more variety lol. Love and recognize a lot on your list and will check out the ones I haven’t yet, thanks!

    the father dies and ends up taking over another student's body to beat up his daughter's bullies. It's funny!!! But the guy he takes over is kinda low key and shy. Doesn't know what is happening so it somewhat fits

    organization he works for disbands and now he wants to live a normal high-school life, but as you know.... it pops-up here and there!

    I an looking for manga/manhwa like

    Life Of A War Emperor After Retirement

    I love stories of how an overpowered person enjoy life. The MC does not need to train and get stronger. Does not need to build up his faction/group. Something more light-hearted and adventure. Does anyone have recommendations? Any other stories similar?

    Memorize still need to level up, need to train, build up to reach his goals. Not what I am looking for.

    I also love the manhwa called ID. It's a very old manhwa in the early 2000.

    Fantastic storyline and art. Unfortunately, the author went bankrupt and was discontinued.

    Storyline is about a murim boy isekai-ed to another world full of magic. The storyline is about how he goes around in adventure. No leveling up. No building of faction. He is insanely strong. No heavy heart. Just go around and have adventures. That's the type of manga/manhwa I like. Anyone else can recommend me something similar?

    Ohh you like something like when the MC use his power, side character be like "o.o" or "impossible! Losser is soo strong"

    Im really not the demon god's lackey

    --> this is like the MC should be the strongest but......

    Garbage Hero: A revenge story
    --> this should be a clitche story where the mc train in a dangerous and got too strong then.... PS: he hides his power after getting out(i think )

    Spirit Farmer
    -->i dont know if you know about this already because this is quite famous but yeah hiding his strong power while being annoyingly ignorant how strong he is..

    The Dark Magician Transmigrates After 66666 Years
    -->
    this should be outside your strikezone manga because he is the strongest but back to zerooo again

    Also most of the others is base on the setting wuxia era or martial strongest got reincarnated to modern world:

    Above All Gods, I'm the Great Immortal, etc.
