The protagonist (anti-hero?) is a member of a party. He seems weak, but hides great power.

  • His teammates diss him a lot. Only the leader is kind and trying to prevent the members from firing him, but did not succeed. So he got outs, and tried to do everything by himself.
  • Setting: A world in which no-one dies, everything is for entertainment and hero + monster(?) send a representative to fight in area(?) dungeon(?)
  • Have magic, anti-hero kinda feel.
  • Manga I read some time ago. Less than 3 years.
  • Japanese manga.

I recall the protagonist met someone and he/she disclosed more information about his power.

    Do you mean his powder or his power?

    "Only the leader is kind and trying to prevent the members from firing him, but did not succeed" So the MC was expelled from his party? Jun 29, 2021 at 17:23

    "LogicDictates" Yes he did. And he is not a Jester by the way, it came up during my google search while using "teammate" "representative" "anti-hero" "fight" "entertainment"

I believe this is Welcome to the Impregnable Demon King Castle ~The Black Mage Who Got Kicked Out of the Hero Party Due to His Unnecessary Debuffs Gets Welcomed by the Top Brass of the Demon King's Army~. (Warning, TvTropes link)

The story is set in a world where Humans and Monsters fight each other with magical clones, so Dungeon Raids have become entertainment like sports. Video feeds are broadcast out making it world wide entertainment. The main character specializes in Dark magic, which in this setting is debuffs. Due to the subtlety of the magic, most of his party wants him kicked out of the party to be replaced with a more damage oriented mage, one that looks flashier. The party leader refuses, understanding the power of his friend, but the main character quits. He was fed up with the comments from the rest of the party.

As mentioned in the title, after he left his friend's party, he joined up with the Demon King which could be where the anti-hero feeling came from.
