Saitama, Road to Hero (2).png
In exchange for gaining strength, have I lost something more important as a human being? Emotions used to swirl within me when I fought. Fear, impatience, anger… But now… Day after day, after one punch I go home unharmed and wash my gloves.

Limits, you say? But who decides one's limits? And based on what, exactly? You said you worked as hard as you can? Well, then maybe you just need to work a little harder. Is this really the limit of your strength, or could the you of tomorrow beat you today? Instead of giving in, just move forward.
~ Saitama to the B-Class Hero Glasses

You see, I never wanted to become a salaryman, I wanted to become a Super Hero that blows away stereotypical villains like you... with One Punch.
~ Saitama to Crabrante after realizing his true goal in life.

100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats, and 10 km running. Every single day!!!
~ Saitama stating his training regimen.

Kid Saitama.png


Saitama is a human from Z-City who; through rigorous (sort of) training broke through his human limiters and achieved unbelievable strength and abilities. Never breaking a sweat, the name One Punch Man is fitting for the effortless wins Saitama has achieved through the series. Never going beyond a simple brawl, his sheer strength, speed, and sower have effortlessly mowed down anyone in his way.

A parody character essentially; Saitama is a play on generic, flamboyant battle manga protagonists, who struggle greatly to achieve victory against overly evil characters. Saitama breaks the trend through his lethargic and typically emotionless personality, combined with massively overwhelming strength. Also, due to his effortless wins through the series, we have yet to see his true, full capabilities; getting slightly more "serious" as the series progresses, he casually puts down any new enemy on his radar.

Powers and Stats

Tier: 9-B | 9-A, up to at least 8-B | At least Low 5-B

Name: Saitama, "Caped Baldy"

Origin: One-Punch Man

Gender: Male

Age: 25

Classification: Human, A-Class Hero

Powers and Abilities:

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Accelerated Development (Training; Physical Stats. Became ridiculously stronger during his training. Genos theorized that even Saitama himself cannot explain the secret to his power), Supernatural Willpower (Was able to break his limiter through sheer will and effort alone, despite being just a regular human) and Resistance to Pain Manipulation (Was able to endure through high amounts of pain through his intense training regime, to the point Saitama stated his training regime nearly killed him)

Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Acrobatics/Self-Momentum (Could easily dodge bullets from Boros' ship while in the air), Enhanced Senses, Afterimage Creation (Created countless afterimages), Pseudo-Flight (Could move and change his momentum and keep afloat in the air, Air Manipulation and Shockwave Creation with his attacks), Non-Physical Interaction (Was able to physically interact with Phoenix Man's spiritual/mind plane), Limited Telepathy (Heard Phoenix Man and Child Emperor's mental conversation), Heat and Fire Resistance (Was unfazed by Genos' attacks. Can submerge in lava with no trouble. Was unaffected by Boros' attacks, which could melt entire sections of his ship), Resistance to Ice Manipulation (Instantly broke free from being frozen by Withered Sprout), Overwhelming Aura (Completely scared Carnage Kabuto), Can hold his breath in space for an extended period of time

Attack Potency: Wall level (Should at least be comparable to himself as a 12 years old child) | Small Building level (Survived two blows from Personification Of A Light Pull Cord), up to at least City Block level (After breaking his limiter and going through the process of fully removing it, became strong enough to effortlessly one shot both Light Pull Cord and even 170,000 Year Magicicada Nymph) | At least Small Planet level (Casually overpowered Orochi's Gaia Cannon, overpowered Boros' Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon attack while holding back significantly[note 1])

Speed: Superhuman (Outsped Crabrante) | Supersonic (Accomplished this feat) | At least Relativistic+ (Far faster than Flashy Flash. Blitzed Boros casually), possibly at least FTL (Casually intercepted Geryuganshoop's pitches at this speed)

Lifting Strength: Unknown | Unknown, likely Superhuman | At least Class P, likely far higher (Much stronger than the likes of Tatsumaki)

Striking Strength: Wall Class | Small Building Class, up to at least City Block Class | At least Small Planet Class

Durability: Wall level | Small Building level, up to at least City Block level | At least Small Planet level

Stamina: Unknown (Has not exerted himself even once so far)

Range: Standard melee range. Tiny bit more with Tie | Standard melee range | Standard melee range with punches. At least Planetary with shockwaves

Standard Equipment: Tie (Used this to rip out Crablante's guts through its eye socket) | None notable | None notable

Intelligence: Average. Saitama seems to be single-minded at times, chasing a mosquito relentlessly even after sustaining a blast that destroyed his clothing completely. Due to his laid-back attitude, he lacks any sort of refinement in his techniques and is primarily a brawler in combat, simply punching a target until they're blown to pieces (which he usually does not need due to his overwhelming power). Additionally, he is lacking academically, only barely passing the hero exam due to his poor score on the written exam. Nevertheless, he displays great control over his speed and strength, stopping his fist within a hair's breadth of Genos' face to avoid hurting him and generally holding back in fights to prolong them. He has shown to be a good judge of character, however, being able to tell people's real motives (such as Garou and Fubuki) quite quickly

Weaknesses: He doesn't take anything seriously initially, and tends to hold back to possibly prolong a fight. Saitama has no true martial arts training, as he simply just fights.



Feats from the webcomic are marked with (W).

Notable Attacks/Techniques:

Normal Attacks

  • Normal Punch: Saitama throws a simple punch. A casual punch was powerful enough to completely destroy a meteor that would have leveled the city.
  • Consecutive Normal Punches: Saitama launches a volley of quick, single handed punches from his right. These blows are powerful enough to blow strong or large body types apart.

Serious Attacks

  • Serious Strike: Saitama throws an extremely powerful punch. This punch is shown to completely negate and destroy a beam capable of wiping out a planet's surface. The shockwave from the punch was powerful enough to part clouds on a global scale.
  • Serious Consecutive Side Hops: Saitama hops from side to side rapidly. Doing so allows him to create a multitude of afterimages. He can walk forward while doing so and the shock wave caused by it was enough to break Sonic's Ten Shadows Burial.
  • Serious Table Flip: Saitama flips the entire battlefield into the air. Flipped the Monster Association Base during his fight with Garou.
  • Serious Headbutt: Saitama headbutts the opponent with great force. Casually destroyed one of Garou's monster forms with this attack.
  • Serious Squirt Gun (マジ水鉄砲, Maji Mizudeppō): Saitama uses his hands to squirt lava, acting as a super high-pressured stream of liquid. This move was capable of overpowering Orochi's Gaia Cannon, an extremely powerful attack which drew energy from the very core of the Earth itself.

Key: Pre-Training | During Training | Post-Training


  1. Saitama is likely far stronger than this depiction of his current feats since he has ended every fight thus far effortlessly
  • Refrain from trying to scale anyone else from Saitama’s attacks, as he is the verse’s god tier and the results of his attacks can be inconsistent.
