Hardcore Leveling Warrior (Drawn and written by Sehun Kim) is an ongoing action webcomic, set in the virtual world of Lucid Adventure. It was first published on Webtoons on November 7th, 2017.
The story centers around Hardcore leveling Warrior, who is the number one ranked player in the game, with maxed out levels and stats to match, until he gets killed by a mysterious woman and goes back to being level one. In real life, he is in debt to a man named President Kim, who then forces him to stay in a cell until he can make enough money in-game to pay off his debt.
Hardcore Leveling Warrior contains examples of:
- Absurd Cutting Power: More than one sword in this world is capable of splitting mountains, given the right skill.
- Absurdly High-Stakes Game: If Hardcore Levelling Warrior can't pay back his debt in time by collecting money in-game, he'll have his organs removed.
- Authority Equals Asskicking: All higher-ups at Giga are explicitly good in a fight.
- Awesome Mc Coolname: Hardcore Leveling Warrior, case-in-point.
- Badass Grandpa: Dark's Grandfather is essentially a God.
- Badass Boast: Hardcore Leveling Warrior tends to do this when he's in a fight, or after he's just won.
- Balloon Belly: Played for Laughs when Sora gets one in episode 96.
- Boobs of Steel: Sora has large breasts, and she's also the tank of Dark's Party.
- Evil Albino: Constant ends up as this.
- Evil Former Friend: Constant and Hardcore Leveling Warrior used to be friends, and work in the same guild, before Constant betrayed them for Giga.
- Heads or Tails?: Hardcore Leveling Warrior has a skill which lets him flip a coin for the chance to get a stat boost to any stat of his choice.
- Professional Gambler: Hardcore Leveling Warrior and Demon, both.
