Daisuke Aizawa started first Kage no Jitsuriokusha ni Naritakute! (Eminence in the shadows) novel series on the Shosetsuka ni Naro website in May 2018. Enterbrain began serializing a light novel adaptation with Tozai’s illustrations in November of that year and currently has 4 volumes in circulation. A manga adaptation by Henri Sakano has also been published on Comp Ace since December 2018 and currently has 7 volumes available. The same publisher also serialized a separate manga titled Kage no Jitsuriokusha ni Naritakute! Shadow Gaiden by Seta U as of July 2019, which currently has 2 volumes. Yen Press licensed the original Eminence in the shadows series of light novels in English and describes the plot as:

Even in his past life, Sid’s dream wasn’t to become the main character or final boss. He prefers to hide as a minor character until the best time comes to reveal that he is a mastermind…or at least do the next best thing – pretend to be one! And now that he has been reborn in another world, he is ready to create the perfect conditions to live out his dreams to the fullest. Armed with his overactive imagination, Sid jokingly recruits members into his organization and invents an entire backstory for an evil cult they must take down. Well, as luck would have it, these imaginary adversaries turn out to be the real deal – and everyone knows the truth but him!
