10 Manga Manhwa Where Main Character is Overpowered But doesn’t know about his power!!
This is a list of 10 manga with op mc who hide his power. As I was searching for more manga to read I came up finding a manga where the main character has no clue about his origins and powers but is powerful which is the number one spot in this list. So, as I finished this manhwa I searched for more of these but was unable to find any article or list about this kind of manhwa-manga. So, I researched and went through a lot of manga-manhwa and decided to make my list on it for the people like me who could be searching for similar manga-manhwa. And here, are my top 10 picks for manga-manhwa where the main character doesn’t know about his powers.
When his master dies, Gang Yong pledges to avenge his teacher at all costs. After training his martial arts skills in seclusion, Gang Yong sets off to hunt down the traitors and make them pay! But when he gets to town, he discovers they’re… already dead? Well, what’s he supposed to do now?! This series is pretty good but it does tend to drag on. Reading the first part, and then reading the second part I get where the person was going when they were writing it but why would you add so many sub-characters, that it drags the story on in such a bad way? It ends well but the journey to get it is impossibly boring. But overall, the story concept is really good and so is the art style and the comedy also hits you which can make this webtoon fun for you.
9. Tokyo Underground
Under Tokyo’s underground railway system is a world called Underground, populated by Elemental Users, people who can manipulate various elements. When the Maiden of Life, Ruri Sarasa, and her bodyguard, Gravity User Chelsea Rorec escape to the surface, they take refuge with swordsman Rumina Asagi and his bespectacled best friend Ginnosuke Isuzu. During a battle with the flame-using Seki, Rumina is killed and then resurrected by Ruri. The revived Rumina finds he now has the power to manipulate air, a rare talent amongst the Underground people. Realizing Ruri is in danger, Rumina vows to protect her, even if it means going to the Underground to rescue her from her eventual captors before she gets sacrificed. Rumina eventually goes to the Underground with Chelsea and Ginosuke after Ruri is kidnapped. As soon as they arrive they encounter a genetic experiment from The Company but manage to escape. I enjoyed this series but let’s face the reality this has already been done before, and better so don’t expect much, this is an average story about the adventure of a more or less average boy pushed forward by his feelings to fight against all the obstacles. The story isn’t so bad but I get the feeling that I’ve seen the same things happen to a boy inside the cockpit of a huge robot, wielding a sword, or following a dangerous path seeking revenge. So go ahead and spend a good time; there is a small dose of humor, cuteness, courage, and despair as the main character grows stronger, and defeats overconfident and too-talkative enemies.
8. Yin Zhi Shoumuren
The Main Character Shu Yin is a really poor student that loves playing games. One of his friends is a popular student detective that convinces him into helping with a murder case. After viewing the last moments of an old man being held at gunpoint, the scene forces Shu into a virtual reality game, dropping him off at a desert landscape with some pyramids. Shu Yin goes with the flow, and the first thing he sees is a BOSS sand monster and a quest option. Like any Main Character, he expects to defeat the Boss to win, right? No, it turns out he’s the last Gravekeeper and he’s supposed to protect the treasure against the Tomb Raiders. That old man? He was his grandfather, and they meet in virtual reality. This Manhua Creates a Mystery from the start of the story which unveils slowly as the story progresses which is fun to read as we experience the unveiling as the main character does. The story represents a classic manhua heritage from grandfather and overpowered storyline but is different from the rest of the manhua which follows the same concept. It’s a good read so you must check this manhua out if you are searching for some really fun mystery read.
7. Black torch
Seventeen-year-old Jirou Azuma lives a quiet life with his grandfather, utilizing his supernatural ability to speak with animals to befriend and protect them. Both Jirou and his grandfather are descendants of a long-standing shinobi clan, training in combat to keep the art of battle alive within their family. Jirou’s life is thrown into upheaval after rescuing a seemingly normal black cat, Ragou, only to discover that the cat is a Mononoke—a demonic spirit that has long been at war with mankind. When a hostile Mononoke comes looking for Ragou, Jirou uses his shinobi training to jump to the cat’s defense, but immediately suffers a mortal wound. Faced with the decision of whether or not to devour Jirou’s fading energy and restore himself to full power, Ragou instead chooses to give his remaining energy to Jirou. Reviving the boy, the transfer also grants him great supernatural powers that complement his shinobi fighting style. This act is witnessed by Ryousuke Shiba, an officer in the Bureau of Espionage whose job revolves around dispatching aggressive Mononoke. Shiba extends Jirou and his grandfather an offer: to join the Bureau’s new squad, Black Torch, and help them battle powerful Mononoke who seek to devour innocent people. This manga perfectly fits the Genre where the main character doesn’t know anything about his power. He, later on, goes to find his true strength and explores his power which is fun to experience as a reader. But sadly it got ended up leaving only a little info on the plot and with 19 chapters compiled into 5 volumes which is a loss for us readers. Overall, it’s a quite nice mix of shonen and action stories and if you like and enjoy shonen in general you will love this story.
6. Katekyo Hitman Reborn
The life of Tsunayoshi “No-Good Tsuna” Sawada is a complete wreck. Terrible grades, horrible fitness, and a non-existent social life mean he has no reason to attend school, especially after discovering that his crush, Kyouko Sasagawa, is already seeing someone. Unbeknownst to him, however, the blood of Giotto, the great Vongola the First, runs through his veins. Enter home tutor Reborn, an infant who claims to be the world’s greatest hitman. Under orders from Vongola the Ninth, Reborn has come to train Tsuna to become a worthy successor to the famous Vongola Famiglia name. Tsuna, however, refuses and claims that he will never become a mafia boss. How will the world’s greatest hitman react to such opposition? Will he force Tsuna to adhere? Or will he use this unwillingness to his advantage? This is a story of a reluctant successor as he takes on the responsibilities of becoming the underworld’s next ruling mafia leader, with the help of his friends and a one-of-a-kind home tutor. I was introduced to the franchise through the anime. When I realized the anime was canceled, I finished the anime and then moved on to the manga. Every time I finished a chapter, the next one just got even better. I honestly enjoyed every moment of reading this manga. What I liked the most, and the reason why I even started reading it is because of the genre shift that made Reborn so famous, and it’s something amazing. It shows you how the story grows and changes from the original lighthearted and quirky gag manga to a darker and more action-based version with great characters and development which shows some aspects of the Main character not knowing his true power. This is a must-read for every shonen and every otaku in general who loves manga. This is a straight-up classic and I recommend it to everyone.
5. Ultimate soldier
Juvenile Rogge’s father had the strongest fighting spirit, but he betrayed the country, causing Rogge and his mother to be bullied and to lose their place. To clean up humiliation and change the destiny of his family, the teenager broke into the world’s fiercest and scariest villain academy and strive against opponents with powerful fighting spirits. Can Rogue get rid of the misery and boundary surrounding his life, or not? This Manhua directly meets the requirements of our search of the Manhua where the mc doesn’t know about his true power. The story shows that the main character is the strongest being in the world of an ultimate soldier but he is unaware of that knowledge and as the story progresses many mind-boggling twists occur in the story which makes it so fun to read. This manhwa is very highly recommended and more people should know about this masterpiece as it is rarely talked about.
4. Nabari no ou Miharu
Rokujo is a modern-day Japanese student apathetic to the world around him. One day, Miharu is protected from a ninja by Koichi Aizawa and Tobari Kumohira, who are ninjas affiliated with the Banten Village. He learns that his body carries the Shinra Banshou, a scroll that holds the most powerful secret art in the ninja world of Nabari. Because the Grey Wolves, a faction associated with Iga Village that wants to use the Shinra Banshou for their gain, will kill Miharu for the secret art, Miharu cannot return to his normal life. Nabari no Ou’s synopsis might seem like your typical shounen series; a boy main character who only wished for a peaceful life, but he somehow possessed great inhuman power. That is the basic setting for every Shonen manga. As a character-driven story, while also being a 2000s shounen action, the cast is initially as you’d expect. Spontaneous with lots of quirks that play off each other well. As the series goes on, the characters become much more grounded and you feel much more for them the way that they deal with the many roadblocks that end up in their paths feels increasingly believable in a way that makes it hard for you to not understand where they’re coming from. If you like character-driven stories and do not care about the same concepts being used then you can be sure to shoot a favorite manga of yours.
3. Kaiju No. 8
In Japan, monsters are known as kaiju regularly attack the populace with the Japanese Defense Force tasked with killing them. After their town was destroyed by kaiju when they were children, childhood friends Kafka Hibino and Mina Ashiro both vowed to become members of the Defense Force. Mina has become famous as the commander of the Defense Force’s Third Unit, but Kafka has failed the examination numerous times and is a member of the cleanup crew, Monster Sweeper Inc., whose job it is to dispose of the monsters’ dead bodies after the battle. After a small talking monster flies into his body via his mouth, Kafka gains the ability to turn into a monster himself, which gets dubbed “Kaiju No. 8” by the Defense Force. Kafka remains fully cognizant while in the form, but gains superhuman strength, and becomes the first monster to escape the Defense Force. This series is a really fun read which I enjoyed especially, the art is the major thing that hit me. The story doesn’t start well and the characters are also not too connective with you at the beginning but as the story progresses the development of the characters creates an enjoyable atmosphere and makes it a really fun read. The factor that the main character doesn’t know about his powers and the mystery behind them makes it interesting as well.
2. The Breaker
Yi “Shioon” Shi-Woon’s everyday life at Nine Dragons High School—which consists of beatings by fellow student Ho Chang and his gang—is far from ideal. But one day, a mysterious man named Han Chun Woo spots one of these beatings and instead of offering support, brands Shioon a coward for refusing to fight back, adding insult to injury. To Shioon’s surprise, he finds out that Chun Woo is the new substitute English teacher at his school. Tired of the daily abuse, Shioon decides to enroll at a martial arts academy to learn how to defend himself. On the way there, he stumbles upon Chun Woo in a predicament—cornered in an alley by a group of angry men! Provoked, Chun Woo suddenly dispatches them using martial arts techniques, which Shioon covertly records. Later, he uses this recording to blackmail Chun Woo into teaching him to defend himself. Reluctantly, Chun Woo agrees, and Shioon is soon thrust into the world of martial arts, known as Murim. However, Soon is naive and unaware of his master’s shady past and the unseen underbelly of society. How will Chun Woo manage to teach Shioon and help him survive in the world of Murim? This manhwa is one of my favorite reads that I have read till now. This manhwa portrays the basic shonen aspects but creates a different vibe which makes it amazing. The art and the story make the manhwa one of the best in its field and the mystery aspect which gets unveiled as we progress in the story makes it hype. As I said this is one of my favorite manhwa so I would recommend this to everybody who loves martial arts and overpowered teachers in manhwa and manga in general.
