The World Online light novel is an interesting read. It has a good MC and a good plot. Although, in the beginning, this light novel is one of the best out there. But, as it comes towards an end or even the middle, a major part of the storyline seems like a miss. Still, it’s a good novel.

15. Super Gene
It’s a new age. People got teleported. They gained new abilities at another end of the universe. Han Sen, the protagonist, gained a secret item or treasure. The treasure was mysterious, yet something that seemed reliable. This treasure helped him to get powerful a lot faster than others.
Super Gene is pretty unique since we do not get to see a character get beast-like powers or beast souls pretty often. Super Gene’s character is the same as others. We highly recommend Super Gene. You can appreciate a little uniqueness in the story. It is one of the top martial arts light novels
14. Peerless Martial God
Lin Feng, the protagonist, tried to be a disciplined hard worker and a good guy. He studied hard for his family and tried to make them proud through his honesty and hard work. But, when he saw a girl being taken advantage of, he had to do something. He was tricked and sentenced to 10 years in jail.

Peerless Martial God at first instance feels like a serious story since the protagonist is hard-working. However, there are harem and romance parts that were quite unexpected regarding the storyline. Still, it’s a good novel and recommended. It is one of the top martial arts light novels
13. Swallowed Star
In the year 2056, in the city of Yuan Jiang Su Jin area, atop a ruined apartment sits a teenager wearing a combat vest. He has a hexagonal shield tied to his back and is equipped with a battle knife. The thing is that the entire city was ruined and he was just sitting there, atop the apartment of a deserted city.
Swallowed Star is worth it. However, there are many untranslated chapters and it might take weeks to translate many of them. The light novel is Chinese in origin and the author is “I Eat Tomatoes” (yeah). It is one of the top martial arts light novels
12. Evil Emperor’s Wild Consort

11. Reverend Insanity
Humans are clever species. However, Gu is the true refined essence of Heaven and Earth. A demon is born when the three temples are unrighteous. Reverend Insanity is a story of a time traveler who keeps on being reborn.
Reverend Insanity gets dark during times. It should only be read by mature audiences. Reverend Insanity is worth a read.
It’s also a Xianxia light novel. This light novel is completed. The author is Gu Zhen Ren. It is one of the top martial arts light novels
10. Custom-Made Demon King
Roy’s life was nothing special. The only good and appreciable thing he did was when he saved a mother and child from an accident. He got in an accident. Roy was dead a few seconds later.
Roy got transported to another world. He could draw anything that he could imagine there and create it by exchanging souls
Custom Made Demon King has it all. You name it! It includes genres like action, adventure, fantasy, Martial Arts, Mystery, Sci-fi, Supernatural, Xuanhuan. The light novel is still ongoing. This masterpiece’s author is “Dark Old Demon”. It is one of the top martial arts light novels
9. Hail the King
An ordinary student accidentally traveled to another universe and became the King of a small kingdom. He got a “cheat code” of life and completed something extraordinary.
This is the story of a king who was able to conquer continents and leave behind a legacy that would be celebrated by generations to come.
Hail the King is a good novel with a seriously overpowered MC. The light novel has been completed with a total of 1621 chapters. It might seem like a lot, but trust me, it’s worth it. The MC goes through infinite hardships and you might love him exactly for that. His “never give up” attitude is commendable.
8. Unrivaled Medicine God
A Pill Emperor of his generation was set up by a traitor. Since then, the world lost Qingyun Zi and gained invincible silk pants. Once again, walking the Great Dao of Alchemy.
Unrivaled Medicine God has a protagonist who is obsessed with alchemy. Every little thing has an explanation in this light novel.
7. Monster Paradise
800 years ago, 3000-dimensional gates opened across the entire world. A ton of monsters entered the world of humans. Humanity got hit hard.
Some destroyed city walls with one strike. The monsters had bodies the size of a titan and fed on humans. Some latched onto humans, absorbing their bodies’ nutrients and enslaving humans. In a night, the Human race fell to the bottom of the food chain.
The one thing that I don’t like is that some things don’t make sense at all. Perhaps you might like it, but it is kind of “unexplained” is what I’d say. It is recommended highly.
6. Otherworldly Evil Monarch
Jun Xie was the number one assassin on modern Earth. His skills and knowledge in his field were unmatched, his accomplishments unprecedented and his reputation terrified the entire underworld. However, during a mission to retrieve a mystical treasure, a terrible thing happened. You have to look this out in the light novel itself.
The otherworldly Evil Monarch has a good MC with good character development. There’s also romance mixed into it, but not much. The main character explains a LOT and by this, I mean… a LOT!
Other than that, it’s a good night novel. Once again, MC would be the main highlight of this light novel.
5. Versatile Mage
Mo-Fan woke up in a familiar world that had vastly changed. His usual school where there was the usual studying, exams, and stuff had become a full-fledged school teaching magic, encouraging everyone to become a mighty magician.
Outside the city, many wandering magical beasts and monsters attacked innocent humans.
There is an equal mixture of romance, and comedy filled with an action-packed adventure.
4. It’s Not Easy to Be a Man After Travelling to the Future
After dying from a strange illness, Ling Lan was reincarnated not to the past, but 10000 years into the future. She was glad that now she could live a healthy life with her new healthy body. But, fate had other plans for her.
Ling Lan’s adolescence was full of turmoil and challenges. However, when she finally turned 16, she hoped that these troubles would end. But, fate once again had other plans. She was thrown into the federation’s top military boy’s school.
This light novel is incredibly amazing although the power levels are kind of all over the place. Nonetheless, the female lead is so badass. It is one of the best martial arts light novels.
3. Library of Heaven’s Path
Zhang Xuan travels to another world and becomes a teacher. He sees a mysterious library in his dream. As long as it is something he has seen, regardless of whether it is a human or an object, it would be automatically compiled in his mind.
The protagonist of Library of Heaven’s Path is simply overpowered, just like most famous light novels with a power system. It doesn’t make the novel bad, but it has its flaws.
2. Everyone Else is a Returnee
At school, Yu Ilhan is left out during his adolescence. He finally became a university student. As usual, he felt left out.
He hones his skill to the highest level possible in case a great cataclysm hits humanity and when humanity finally Maya the cataclysm, he begins his journey in an alternate world.
Everyone else is a Returnee is indeed a great novel and there is a similar setting to the harem genre. So, harem genre lovers would love this. It’s also one of the most famous and best system novels out there.
It has 348 chapters and the author is Toika, Toy car.
1. Reincarnation of the Strongest Sword God
Starting over once again, the protagonist entered his life again to control his fate.
This is hands down the best martial arts light novel out there. Of course, it’s an opinion, but it’s the best. The plot, the characters, the leveling system, martial arts, everything is amazing. Even though the ending seems a bit rushed, it doesn’t degrade the story. Highly recommended!
