So, we think ‘City of Dead Sorcerer‘ is a ‘manhwa like Tower of God’ in more than a few aspects.
10. Side Kicks
Side Kicks is a type of manhwa where you laugh like hell besides its amazing action premise. The story follows Lamia (also known as Dream Girl) who has the ability to make people fall asleep. However, to become a superhero, she must first serve as a sidekick to a superhero.
Soon, she becomes a sidekick for Darkslug, who isn’t a great hero, despite his reputation. But with her cooperation, this duo boards on a journey to get rid of the villains so that they can save the world. Isn’t the concept appealing?
Even though the plot isn’t similar to Tower of God, there are a lot more aspects to compare. Like how Tower of God shows us a completely better story in the second season than the first one, Side Kicks gets a lot better over time.

Probably DICE is the most similar one to Tower of God on the list in terms of premises. The story revolves around Dong-tae, who leads a tough life by getting bullied by others until he meets Taebin who sits next to him.
Tae-bin always brings a strange blue cube with him and one day he asks Dong-tae to play a little game. But when he does, he realizes that a second chance in his life is waiting for him as the cube offers one to boost their attributes just like in a video game. But doesn’t great power come with great responsibility?
DICE manhwa makes the reader wish for exact things that the main character gets and at the same time, tells the consequences. And don’t you see that in Tower of God as well? The protagonists are quite similar in personalities as they grow strong from being weak.
In DICE, Dong-tae always idolizes Eunjoo just like how Bam does with Rachel in Tower of God. This manhwa introduces a unique type of ranking system to determine the abilities of the characters like in Tower of God. So, we think it deserves a spot on the list of manhwa like Tower of God.
Flow manhwa/webtoon presents you with a great combination of action and supernatural themes with a conventional plot. The plot sets in a world where every child is born under a god and classified as a higher god and a lower god. Children under the protection of lower gods can’t attend high school and they must get a job after middle school.
And the children born under higher gods will study in high school, and they even have the ability to grant a wish by paying an equal price to it. Lee-rang turns back time using this ability and pays dearly for it. The only way to set everything back is by attending high school once again and using his cat god powers.
To be honest, this manhwa is too underrated and these days, you don’t get a story-driven webtoon like this one. Though it is an old manhwa that ran from 2013-2014, it has a lot in common compared to Tower of God.
Just like Tower of God, it gives you hints and makes the story a bit predictable. However, later it turns the tables and surprises you with the level of details in the story.
The story flows very well from the beginning and in the mid chapters, even the author gives you a few hints, you won’t be able to anticipate what happens next. Later, the true beauty of the manhwa comes out and thus we conclude this one as not only one of the best manhwa like Tower of God but the best on the list.
7. Soul Cartel
Soul Cartel is pretty much the kind of manhwa where you feel like everything is going as you suspected but then ends up having a pleasant surprise. The story follows Sihoon, a boy who has lost his parents and is currently living with his older sister.
His normal life becomes exciting when he meets Mephisto that came to this world searching for Faust. Sihoon makes a deal with Mephisto and helps on its mission. If you’re into supernatural manhwa, then this is a good manhwa to read.
The best thing about this manhwa is you can binge-read the whole chapters (episodes) since it is finished. While the ending of this webtoon isn’t for everyone, it still develops various opinions in the audience. The setting and characters highly resemble Tower of God.
The world-building is pretty awesome, and the story is very intriguing. In other words, it hooks you up right from the beginning without much introduction of the characters. So, if you’re interested in reading manhwa like Tower of God, then this one is a good option to choose from.
Kubera‘s story sets in a world where humans exist under powerful gods also known as “Sura.” With the name of Kubera (one of the gods), a girl is born and her destiny points her out to change the world.
While coming from a small village, Kubera hones the skills, and one day she finds out that some high-ranking Suras burnt her village down to the ground.
Though she feels devastated, she is alone and it is impossible to avenge them. At least that’s what she thought until an elite magician named Asha promises to aid her. Along with this magician, Kubera sets her path to avenge the perpetrators.
