Fame. Glory. Power. Anything in your wildest dreams is possible when you reach the top of the Tower of God. Those lucky enough to be chosen by the tower ascend each floor in hopes of fulfilling their dreams, but to succeed, they must complete dangerous and deadly tests along the way. But there are others who can enter the structure on their own free will; these “irregulars” are feared by many and are said to leave chaos and change in their wake. Twenty-Fifth Baam is one such irregular who begins to climb the Tower of God in hopes of reuniting with his childhood friend Rachel, but as he soon discovers, this perilous path will put him in the crosshairs of fierce competitors, untrustworthy rivals and terrifying monsters, and he might not make it out alive…

Both of these stories are set in amazing fantasy worlds that are magical and yet operate according to their own sets of rules. The main characters are both somewhat naive/idealistic but have a very established goal (Baam’s goal is to find Rachel, Kubera’s goal is, well, revenge) and are unusually gifted. Also, both main characters have an ally of sorts who is more calculating than they are, Khun for Baam and Asha for Kubera.
Additionally, even though they are entertaining and make you laugh at times, they both have a deeper side to them that is slightly dark, and you find yourself sympathizing with the ‘enemy’, or not being sure who the enemy is at all.
Description:Jee-Han loves gaming more than anything, but it still comes as a shock when one day, he suddenly acquires a mysterious power that superimposes RPG characteristics onto the real world! Tasks like going to the store for his mother initiate experience-earning quests, and everyone around the boy display levels and stats above their heads. But what starts as a mild curiosity suddenly becomes all the more real, when Jee-Han discovers that there’s monsters to be killed, special skills to be earned, and others who have similar abilities!

The Gamer and Tower Of God are both manhwa hosted on the well known Korean website naver.com. They both have a similar “webtoon” art syle. Both have a sense of adventure and magic. Tower of God has more nuance in the plot and relationships of characters, and The Gamer is more funny. The Gamer can get a little repetitive, whereas tower of god’s pacing always seems like there is something major going on. Both are great manhwa and a lot of fun, although Tower of God is better written.
8.Alice in Borderlands
Description:Alice Ryouhei will leave high school soon, but he’s trying to avoid thinking about his future. Late one night, when he’s hanging out with his tough friend Karube and his silly, girl-crazy friend Chota, they see fireworks.

Both Tower of God and Alice in Borderlands plot revolves around high-stake-games or death-games where the characters/players have to compete in dangerous “games” in order to move forward. In Alice in Borderlands the threat of dying is what makes these people compete, and in Tower of God it’s the chance of getting anything they want that drive them forward.
I feel like the authors of both of these mangas were very creative when coming up with the different games. They are all very intricate and intense.

Description:Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas.

Both mangas feature a clever protagonist and a not-so-good one with hidden potential and both feature various challenges/games, which the protagonists must overcome in order to achieve their goals. Liar Game is psychological and realistic, Tower Of God is a fantasy, but if you like either one there’s a strong change you’ll the other one as well.

It’s unknown what his aim is or what he wants to accomplish. All that’s known about this mysterious person is that he has been using forbidden level spells to kill evil-doers throughout the city.

They both adventure-based with fantasy. Strong main characters who go don’t really know what is going on at first, but meet many, many people on their adventure. Some that become friends, some that become enemies. The author goes in-depth with each character introduced so you really get to know them all. Both are very world immersive.

Tower Into the Clouds is basically Tower of God but in lighter (comic) background where the main character climbs the tower where each level is pretty different ranging from simple rooms to vast wildlands.

The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor is a creative mix of sensibilities that borrows a lot from isekai series and MMORPGs, but tries to inject a surprising amount of realism and drama to the scenario. The manhwa revolves around Le Hyun, one of the best players at an MMORPG who finds himself back in the game due to his family’s increasing bills and expenses. There’s heart, humor, and action in The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor, but Lee Hyun’s journey utilizes the same kind of leveling mentality that’s present in Tower of God and he feels comparable to Bam.
