Christian Price

This. Part of One Punch Man's entire joke is that he's meant to mock power level arguments and the silly one-upmanship they entail. He's the least-interesting character in his own series and has no real arc, and is surrounded by characters who are not only much more interesting and compelling than him, but also have personal arcs and stories going on.

People taking him seriously in X vs Y power level shit is basically just taking ONE's bait.

Owen Moore
Owen Moore

On one hand, yeah. On the other hand, what said.

He's a joke character.

ALWAYS remember that a character's power is purely decided on the whims of whoever is writing a story about them at the time. So making One Punch Man the most powerful character ever is as simple as typing out "One Punch Man punched Cthulhu and utterly destroyed him."

Christian Diaz

He trained so hard that he went bald and became a superhero.

How can that be anything but a joke?

I wouldn't say that. Saitama has his own character arc going on, it's just a bit more subtle than most of the other characters.

Tatsumaki's legs have the most compelling arc.

Lincoln Morris

The entire series is a satire of the super hero/shonen genre. How can "can beat anyone in a single punch, and constantly frustrated as a result because it's been ages since he's had anything approaching a challenge. Oh, also he's bald and not particularly impressive-looking and most of his heroic deeds have been attributed to somebody else" be anything other than a joke?

Robert Rivera

No, that would be Kurokami Medaka, Demonbane, Kumagawa Misogi, LoN, Tenchi, Chougasaki Gagamaru or Kumagawa Misogi. Possibly the Freshmaker.

Nah son. Saitama could definitley take out anyone, because that's his thing. He can take out anyone in one punch because he's a joke character from what is ultimately a comedy anime/manga. He's the weeb squirrel gir

Cameron James

if the artist designed him to be, how could he not?

Elijah Nelson
Elijah Nelson

A) You're missing the point.

B) It's an artifact title now. Boros survived a consecutive punches attack.

Joseph Jones
Joseph Jones

Nah, he still folded to a single proper punch.
If you look at his form when he swings his fist all throughout the show, he's always stiffly swinging from the shoulder down, not putting the chest, abdomen, hips, or legs into the motion. He's not really punching, just putting his arm out ridiculously fast. Several other times he just holds his fist out and lets the other person hit him, like with Speed o whatever's nuts or when he takes Boros' arm off. Consecutive Normal Punches is basically just a string of bitchslaps with no real leverage or followthrough behind them.

The moment he gets serious, though, he takes a proper stance and swings from the core, using his whole body and following through on the motion. That's the first and only time he actually threw a punch.

And probably the last time too, since it'd ruin the joke if he got to do that more often.

It's a joke series. A wonderful series in regards of writing and animation, but a joke series nonetheless.

Cameron Price

I'm not bickering, really, I just like to think that scene was literally his One Punch. That's it, that's the only one he gets. Just the one. No tears, only nudges now.

Austin Gutierrez

One day while trudging home from the Daily grind, he got in a scuffle with a lobster monster. He enjoyed the fight so much that he started working out with the intention of becoming a hero and gaining the strength to defeat any challenger.

Long story short, he succeeded, and now he's bored. And bald.

Hudson Hughes

No, they are basically the same level of satire. DB has just been around longer, and is remembered primarily through the nostalgia-goggles of older millenials who were just the right level of angsty adolescent to not get the humor but think it's the "badass version of those kiddy superheroes I used to like." Guaranteed, 10 years from now, kids who are currently 8-14, and watching OPM right now, too angsty to get the satire, will overanalyze it and remember it seriously.

Kayden Ward

Does One Punch Man have dual daggers and/or twenty good men?

Matthew Anderson

You n****** really need to stop incessantly claiming that One-punch man is a joke series: it's not. Just because it relies on an unusual premise, does not invalidate its rather well-developed character development (both for Saitama and other side-characters), excellent pacing, and consistent rules. It is a great story.

Boros survived because he can regenerate from anything, and u get the feeling Saitama went easy on him or at least let the fight go on for a while, because he sympathized with his whole searching for somebody, anybody to be a challenge. When he finally decided to take him down, it only took the one punch to do so.

Parker Robinson
Parker Robinson

I fucking love OPM and the fights Saitama doesn't take part in really feed my chuuni, but come on. Even without him one-shotting everybody you have King being ridiculous, Genos' hair being blown up all over the place and baddies with fearsome names such as Golden Sperm, Fuhrer Ugly and Homeless Emperor.
Who says that comedy series can't have excellent characters, great action and strong scenes?

Brandon Long
Brandon Long

He's not a superhero, he's a monster. Monsters in the setting, at least those who used to be human, became monsters by doing something repetitively over and over to ludicrous degrees out of obsession, until they underwent a change in appearance and gained substantial powers.

Crablante, Shadow Boxer, several others, all got their powers and appearance that way.

Saitama trained every single day for three years, with an extreme obsession about "getting stronger" and "being the strongest".

At the end of three years, his appearance changed, and he gained a massive and ridiculous suite of powers.

Anthony Campbell

Jose Butler

Superalloy also trained the fuck out of himself which altered his body, and he's not a monster either.

Hunter Price

Plus, One said that if he put all his strength into a punch, it would destroy half the universe. The other half would be spared because it's behind him.

Andrew Rodriguez
Andrew Rodriguez

When does it say that he isn't a Mysterious Being?

I know there are some people who theorize that he "broke his limiter", but I didn't see anything canon that wasn't just one character's opinion, and nobody that I saw even considered the possibility of him being a Mysterious Being

Misogi has "nuh uh, that didn't happen" and can self-revive.
Gagamaru has "nuh uh, that didn't happen to me" and doesn't need to consciously use it and can also reflect things such as stress or trauma which suggests he could also do it to death, hunger or drowning.

I think that was something special to the "Hero" who shows up every couple hundred years, like the ones Iihiko broke. That's why Ajimu was willing to wait for Medaka to graduate.

Jose Hill
Jose Hill

Except that's wrong you fucking retard why do you keep pushing your headcanon like a huge faggot?

OPM is the story of the hero after he became strong, the whole story is about him being stronger than everyone he fights because he's over-leveled in his verse. That's it.

OPM is not a gag manga and Saitama is not a gag character with reality warping powers to always win, comedy and gag are different things and ONE never referred to OPM as being a gag manga, in fact the talks pretty seriously about it. You need to know what a gag manga is before forcing your shitty headcanon.

Saitama is stronger than everyone else in his own universe.
If you bring other characters to his universe, then the rules that he's overlevelled for everything in the universe apply to the guest character.

So in essence he does have reality warping powers.

Lucas Scott
Lucas Scott

He could have some silly weakness nobody has found out yet, but so far yeah. That's the point of his character, being so strong that he became bored and doesn't know what to do with his life anymore.

Jayden Turner
Jayden Turner

Thats actually a weakness unto itself, he is so bored at being overpowered that he doesn't actually get serious or act straight away and leaves himself open to shots, and its not like his activities are hidden in any way.

If you had a Lex Luthor motherfucker with comicbook tech and the resources to just stalk caped baldie as he bumbles about he could come up with a way to defeat Saitama without ever getting involved in an actual fight with him. Doesn't even matter if he's invincible if he's been zapped to another reality.

If you want to take this seriously then no, not really. Saitama's power come from wish fulfillment, which means his wish was "to be the kind of hero that beat his enemies with one punch". Taking this into consideration then his strength immediately scaled to the strongest enemy in his universe known or otherwise, one could argue past and future as well. So from this you could also assume that any enemy that comes from outside his universe and is stronger than him, could beat him. Although since we have yet to meet the strongest enemy within Saitama's universe we don't really have a scale to measure it by.

If you bring other characters to his universe, then the rules that he's overlevelled for everything in the universe apply to the guest character.

Except that's fucking wrong, he's not reality warping himself into being stronger than eveyrone, he just IS stronger because the story is based around him already finishing his training. It's the story about a hero after finishing his journey.

He's stronger than his enemies because they're garbage, that's it.

Put Wolverine in Nisekoi and he'll beat the shit out of everyone. Doesn't mean he's altering reality to be stronger than everyone.
