“I'm just a guy who's a hero for fun.”

— Saitama introducing himself to Vaccine Man.

Saitama is the main protagonist of the series and the nominal One-Punch Man. He is the most remarkable being to exist in the series. Saitama faces a deliberate existential emergency, as he is presently too strong to even consider acquiring any rush from the fight.


In the city of City Z, beasts, criminals, and other such dangers are near day-by-day events, however, there exists a saint who saves the city on numerous occasions: Saitama, an amazing and running man who has the inconceivable force of having the option to overcome any adversary in a solitary punch! In any case, since foiling evil has become so natural, Saitama views crime battling to be outstandingly exhausting and just does it to discover solid enemies with whom to do fight. Saitama later registers to be an expert saint for the Hero Association after understanding that no one remembers him as a legend and safeguards his home in Z-City from beasts, criminals, and different dangers. Under the Hero Association, he is allowed the legend's name Caped Baldy and is presently B-Class Rank 7.


“ If the heroes run and hide, who will stay and fight? ”

— Saitama to Genos.

Saitama is a detached individual. Indeed, even the mightiest enemies represent no test to him, so he doesn't seriously view his legend work, goes through everything with practically zero exertion, and longs for an opponent that can give him a challenge. The absence of commendable rivals has driven him to experience the ill effects of a self-inflicted existential emergency, and he guarantees that his capacity to feel any feelings has dulled significantly. The mix of his disposition, relentless force, and "unremarkable" appearance regularly makes his fights disappointing. Saitama will for the most part permit his adversaries to yell about their thought processes and catalyst into their most grounded structures, before annihilating them with a solitary punch.

A running gag about Saitama is his powerlessness to recall individuals' appearances and names, as seen when he neglected Speed-o'- Sound Sonic's name, or when he was unable to recollect who Tanktop Tiger was. Along these lines, he at times winds up articulating individuals' names erroneously, causing them a deep sense of mortification.

Saitama is exceptionally prudent and savvy, being admirably ready to observe circumstances and character qualities from individuals and the climate around him reasonably without any problem. He had the option to get various clues to Sonic's persona upon their first gathering. At the point when two tank top legends enviously plotted to destroy him after the meteor occasion, he commented that there were angry and self-serving saint types like them. He was even ready to recognize Fubuki's constrained proposal of accommodation or annihilation not long before his crackdown on how the saint world truly functions than how it is right now run.

Unmatched Strength: Saitama has boundless actual strength and is prepared to do easily crushing incredible beasts and scalawags with a solitary, casual punch (albeit this strength isn't restricted to punches). Saitama's punch is excessively strong such that numerous adversaries just detonate when struck. An illustration of this relaxed, yet overpowering hostile force happens when Saitama dispatches himself from the highest point of a structure, shoots directly through a monster meteor with a punch, lands securely, and just serenely choose to return home. Another occurrence is when Sonic attempts to cut Saitama's head in half with a sword, yet Saitama stops the sword by getting it with his teeth, easily breaking the cutting edge with the force of his jaw. When dispatched from Earth to the moon by a strike from Boros, he utilized his hopping ability to get back to Earth in simple minutes, causing a tremendous shock wave and monstrous quakes on the outer layer of the moon upon flight, just as on Boros' boat after landing. A "typical" punch from him was demonstrated to be extremely deadly, even to somebody as solid as Boros. A solitary "genuine" punch from him had the option to counter Boros' most grounded assault, Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon, an assault equipped for clearing out the whole Earth's surface. Saitama refuted the assault utilizing his genuine punch, while shockwave from the punch was additionally amazing enough to part mists on a worldwide scale. Saitama is equipped for annihilating the Earth assuming he needed to. His solidarity has been expressed by various characters to challenge reason.
