A high school student that has lived as a mob-character ―― Mimori Touka (三森灯河).

During the school trip, Touka and his classmates are summoned to another world.

According to the summoned goddess, summoning so many best ranks like S-rank and superior ranks like A-rank heroes like this is very unusual.

However Touka was the only with the lowest rank ―― he was an E-rank hero.

The status is overwhelming low when compared to his classmates. Moreover Touka’s peculiar skill is supposed to be an absolute failure 【Abnormal State Skill】and…

Thus the former mob-character and abandoned hero, will absolutely become the strongest devil as he advances and strikes back.

Associated Tropes:

  • Abusive Parents: The reason Mimori starts the story with no self-confidence? His parents are very fond of late-term abortion. How late term? They try to "abort" him after he's 10 years old by repeatedly beating him up, for no explained reason, and then locking him on the veranda of their second story apartment, in the middle of winter, and demanding he not make a sound, or he'll get more of the same. When the neighbors call the police on them, they have the nerve to be enraged and yell out "how dare they call the police on us?! He's our brat, we can do whatever we want with him!" In the light novel, they even have the gall to repeatedly boast "perhaps this is the beating that will finally kill him."
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication: The manga skips a major portion of volume 1, including the prologue where Vysis openly kidnaps the entirety of class 2-C to "summon" to this new world to fight the Demon King, consent be damned.

  • Always Chaotic Evil: Gold-eyed monsters created by the miasma of the Devil King and his generals. They are all unflinchingly hostile to humans, and creatures that aren't gold-eyed monsters, and those that can have rational thoughts are vicious and sadistic, finding great sport in tormenting their intended prey, even if they can't communicate. Mimori runs across a race of lizardmen in the Disposal Ruins who make a macabre facsimile from the skeletons of previous victims to showcase how they're going to sadistically murder him. Mimori's conscience isn't pained in the slightest when he gives them all a Cruel and Unusual Death.
  • Apathetic Teacher: The homeroom teacher, Zakorogi Tamotsu, takes the crown. When he sees Yasu being bullied and brutalized by Oyamada on the school bus the class is taking on the field trip, he tells Yasu "if you're going to be Driven to Suicide, at least die on someone else's watch!"
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: All the aristocrats in the story are corrupt scum, so far without exception, and that's the way Vysis likes it. Princess Cattleya lost her entire kingdom and her crown because she had the gall to help her sister Seras escape certain death for the "crimes" of being lusted after by her own father, and Vysis wanting to enslave her.
  • Beauty Is Bad: The goddess who summons the class is physically stunning, and absolutely abhorrent. The top students of Mimori's class, save three, are the same way.
  • The Cake Is a Lie: Goddess Vysis promises the class a trip back home, if they can prove they killed the Demon King by collecting a certain jewel that can only be done with said demon's death. After several casualties caused by "training accidents," and the fact that Mimori was "disposed of," the class slowly, but surely, starts to wonder if goddess Vysis will follow through, even if they do manage to defeat the Demon King and get said jewel.
  • Condescending Compassion: The way goddess Vysis speaks to everyone.
  • Crapsack World: The new world Mimori and his class get summoned to is a hell-on-earth. The goddess in charge of everything is morally bankrupt, the various countries of the world don't fight with each other only because the goddess herself forbids it, and they don't dare offend her, with the leadership of said countries, hand-picked by the goddess herself, being completely corrupt, and for the coup-de-grace, every few centuries, a "demon king revives" and as a consequence, presumably some kind of "evil miasma" turns the local animals into crazed gold-eyed monsters, irrevocably hostile to humans, with acid for blood, so they can't even be used as food, and even humans supposedly go crazy, with the only hope being the "heroes" the goddess herself summons.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: When goddess Vysis has already demonstrated that she's going to send Mimori to an execution ground, regardless of anything he does, and has browbeat, threatened, manipulated, and tricked the rest of the class, including the teacher, to agree, even rendering unconscious Sogou Akira, the Class Representative who stood up for him, she asks for any last words from him. He responds by Flipping the Bird and yelling "go to hell, bitch goddess!"
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: The godess Vysis who summons Mimori and his class to this new world is morally bankrupt, but she, and the summoning ritual she uses, is the only thing that has kept humanity from facing extinction every few centuries when she summons "heroes" to go fight the Demon King and his gold-eyed monster army. The reason? Even the local humans are driven crazy by the "wicked miasma" and only heroes from another world can fight, though it's strongly implied that goddess Vysis does things this way for her own amusement and doesn't bother dealing with the "Devil king" directly.
  • In the Blood: While special abilities are not inheritable, stats are, thus the children of the strongest heroes are powerhouses in their own right. One of the reasons Vysis is so eager to dispose of low-rank "heroes" is that she's got a selective breeding program going on.
  • Kill the God: What Mimori would very much like to do to Vysis, so he's questing to find a way.
  • Polite Villains, Rude Heroes: Goddess Vysis is Faux Affably Evil. Mimori is a Knight In Sour Armor who figures "if I'm going to get killed anyway, why bother being polite?"
  • Rape as Drama: Combined with Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil. The vast majority of the antagonistic humans Mimori comes across tend to be lead by a guy who gives one, or more, of the female companions Mimori has on his quest rape threats and phrases it as "giving her the honor of bearing his child." Mimori's conscience isn't pained in the slightest when he kills them, no matter how dirty the tactics he uses.
  • Released to Elsewhere: Goddess Vysis used to simply have summoned people who didn't measure up to her standards openly executed. When she realized this was actually having the opposite of the intended effect, ie making the rest refuse to fight outright, she instead came up with the system of teleporting them to a far off dungeon with basically no hope of survival.
  • RPG-Mechanics Verse: Invoked. Goddess Vysis gives random abilities, the ability to level up, and stat sheets to all of Mimori's class, including Mimori himself, and then discards him because the stats and abilities she gave him are sub-par to her standards.
  • Social Services Does Not Exist: Defied! The police pay Mimori's parents a visit when the neighbors spot Mimori being abused. In fact, what serves as Child Protective Services in Japan descended on their home, repeatedly, to the annoyance of Mimori's parents. While neither the manga nor the light novel go into specifics, this results in Mimori finding himself in his uncle's custody and gets a loving home, at least until he finds himself in class 2-C.
  • Spoiler Cover: See the lovely elf in the page image? The fact that she joins Mimori on his quest doesn't happen until Volume 2 of the light novel, although she does appear in chapter 2 of the manga, well before they two even meet.
  • Villain World: Goddess Vysis runs everything in this new world, and will happily tell the leaders of all the countries, "you know this girl here, she dared to defy my whims, hunt her down for me." They'll do it too, for fear that she will side with one, or more, of their neighbors and send the armies of said neighbors against them instead. The reason there isn't a mass revolt is that she, and the "heroes" she summons from another world, are the only defense against a Demon King that "revives" every few centuries and wants to annihilate everybody. It's strongly implied that she's behind that too...
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: In universe. The title even spells it out. Mimori's life on Earth was hell under his parents, and in this new world, the same goddess that arbitrarily summoned him also arbitrarily "disposed of him" and browbeat the rest of the class to cheer her on, inflicting violence on anyone who disagreed and spoke up for him, blaming him for it, so he goes a bit murder-crazy.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: As demonstrated in the beginning of the story, if godess Vysis doesn't value your existence, she will "dispose of you," and if you don't go quietly, you must be punished for your "selfishness."

How well does it match the trope?
