So you still could beat him in space. No atmosphere=no shockwaves. And if he can't fly you can shoot him enough to send him adrift through the void without a chance to get back to you.
He has a reputation for being a fraud who cheated his way to the mid leagues.
He can't be fucked dealing with the bitching and politicking of his shitty coworkers and superiors in the notJustice League
>One out of One punches
Boros survived multiple consecutive normal punches. Granted, he died to one serious punch after the normal punches and the three one punches before the normal punches, but he did survive more than one punch all the same.
Well, yeah. Saitama said it was "almost a fight" and one serious blow did beat Boros (although Saitama seemed surprised and impressed that he was still alive after said serious blow). But Saitama did put effort in. He just wasn't going all out.
And he even had strength to spare after that punch.
His punch alone is powerful enough to cause those shockwaves in the first place. If you actually get hit by it, you'd probably be vaporized, especially in the vacuum of space.
Also, he can survive without any special gear in space for (presumably) as long as he can hold his breath. So don't count on suffocating him in order to win either.
Saitama only ever needs one punch to finish a fight. Boros basically had bullshit "as long as I'm not dead, my health will regenerate to full in no time", so Saitama kept underestimating how much strength he needed to kill Boros until he decided it was time to take him with a modicum of seriousness.
And even that was only because Boros was about to blow up the whole earth.
In all seriousness, though, Saitama is basically a god, so he should be treated as one. And in D&D 5e at least
and every other sensible RPGyou don't stat gods.
If you know anything about the character, you know that there is no point trying to stat the character. And if you know that there's no point trying to stat the character, you know that there's no reason to make this thread other than to talk about the character on /tg/, when you should be talking about it on /a/.
Why are you talking about it on /tg/ when you should be talking about it on /a/?

Outright stated according by Boros, so take it with a grain of salt.
Saitama pulled pretty much all but his last punch against Boros because he wanted to give Boros the pleasure that they both so desperately desired: the thrill of a real challenge.
The whole point of Saitama is he's bored with being a god of destruction.
he stated it, and he said he'd grown bored with it all, he came to earth specifically because it was a prophecy that Earth would have the only being to ever give him a challenge.
which further cements Saitama as the strongest their is in his universe, which is fitting.
>If you actually get hit by it, you'd probably be vaporized, especially in the vacuum of space.
There is no medium for that shockwaves to be created in space. This is a reason why nukes are so worthless in vacuum. And you don't need to kill him to win. He might be completely fine drifting trough space and holding his breath for all eternity yet lose the fight.

he's the fastest, strongest, most endurable thing in the universe, that's his power. You would fight him in the depths of space, throw him to the void and he would use a single random hydrogen molecule to jump back to you and punch you to death.
Then realize he'd left the stove on and his house has burnt down.
It's heavily implied by ONE that the person who'd give him a challenge was Garou.
Possibly Tatsumaki, depending on your opinions of her abilities shown thus far. But it's specifically Garou who would give Boros "a hell of a fight".
He punches you and he hits you. It doesn't need to be explained. Distance does not matter. Position does not matter. Nothing matters but the fact that he exists and you exist.
All OPM has to do is punch and any situation he is confronted with is solved. Time, position, distance, none of it matters. All he has to do is punch because he's OPM. One punch is all he needs. Physics is irrelevant.
more that him being overpowered isn't the focus, and in fact, his entire life is shit because he can never have what he really wanted out of life.
which is a fair, even fight with a rival.
Because's fast and strong as fuck. If you're anywhere close to him and he wants to punch you, he's gonna hit you and then you'll just be a bowl of very smooth salsa.
Unless you have a very fast spaceship, YOU are the one that's at a disadvantage in space, and even that's debatable.
To be honest, part of me thinks Saitama vs Goku would turn out similarly to Boros vs Saitama.
Just watch the show you fucking pleb. It's good shit and there are interesting fights in there
that typically get wrapped up by Saitama.
But that's wrong. Saitama's on the next level, that's the point of Saitama.
You can't compare any character to Saitama because Saitama is so much stronger than any other character in any fiction, ever. That's his point. Stop trying to make false comparisons and just accept that Saitama is the strongest, greatest character that ever was, is or shall be.
No, he's far from Superman. Superman wouldn't leave the stove on, but he'd still lose to Saitama.
Saitama is a joke character, that's his whole point. People like OPM because it's funny. The whole point of it is to make fun of Japanese and American style superhero's.
A kid with shitty karate, hockey pads, and balls of steel rides a bike around and is a Class C hero for fucks sake. Its. A. Joke.
Superman's power is that he wins no matter what, always. Even if he needs to change into a giant robot bigger than multiverse with infinite stats to do so.
>A kid with shitty karate, hockey pads, and balls of steel rides a bike around and is a Class C hero for fucks sake.
Licenseless Rider is the best dude ever though, real talk. Too weak to be Class B but he takes on S class challenges because who else will?
Funny, that's Saitama's power too! The unstoppable attack meets the immovable force... which will win?
>Just watch the show
Sorry but 4chan is the last place on web where i would ask for anime recommendations. If people here like it here, then probably bathing in rancid piss is more fun than watching it.
Except it rises so much beyond that if you leave it at that level. You sound like the one that hasn't watched it if you still think it's at a level as base as 'comedy.' It's so much more than that.
>Superman almost reaches out of the panel towards you in panel 1.
>in panel two he is also reaching outside of his own comic panels.
I liked the effort put into this one, if anything.
The story is in the side characters. One Punch Man is a max level character. He can't be beat, he's the greatest shit the cosmos has even known. But it's a kinda "what if God was one of us?" concept.
>His only power
That, and being so fast that Genos, a goddamn cyborg who was impressive enough to get jumped to S class right away, was attacking Saitama's afterimage, and was just mildly annoyed when stomped by giants that dwarfed massive cities and punched to the goddamn moon.
On top of my head? There is "What The?" issue when Fantastic Four meats Not!Superman and he ruins everything by beating every villain ever. You have also that one story when Superman was british which was written by one of the Pythons. There is a lot more in various underground comix. And in a meta sense you have silver age comics which were all about heroes that are vastly overpowered while taking on often laughably weak forces. And of course there is Stardust the Superwizard.
>Wait he's only power is that he can kill anyone with a punch?
Just read the comic. The original chicken-scratch comic is here for free <http://bato.to/reader#0cba86c6f1dd79b4>. If you can't handle the simple illustration, go dig up the professionally-drawn manga or the anime. The anime is also online for free somewhere. The manga and anime also have slightly different translations.
Saitama's powers include:
>Punches and other physical attacks, including kicks, slaps, and thrown rocks, can defeat almost any enemy in a single blow
>Near-invincibility and incredible endurance (also shown to effortlessly survive in the vacuum of space without air)
>Running and moving very quickly (still arrives late most of the time, but can evade most attacks and attack with great speed)
>Jumping (leapt all the way from the moon back to earth without being noticably tired), but explicitly cannot fly
So you want comedy or in depth analysis? Because if you want the letter then there is most Superman shit written in like forty years. Plus Irremediable and fuck knows how many other.
You guys ever sit in a room where a bunch of nerds who miss the point of One Punch Man spend an hour arguing over power levels?
I tell you what, I didn't make any progress on my essay, but boy was that afternoon in the library a real doozy.
STR, END, DEX - infinity
INT, WIS, CHA - negative
His power is he's arbitrarily strong, fast, and tough.
He can destroy anyone with one punch because he's so strong, fast, and tough that normal punches is all he ever bothers trying.
So far he's only encountered one person that he's had to kill by punching like he actually meant it, one time.
I always enjoy seeing stupid people try to one-up Saitama, the strongest character ever made. Western capeshit wishes it could create anything this thought-provoking and insightful while still being witty and laugh-out-loud worthy.
I feel like the only system you could really stat Saitama out in is Nobilis. At least, it's the only one I know of that stats characters with powers arbitrary enough to handle Nobilis.
Before somebody points it out, no, Exalted doesn't.
He's a parody of overpowered superheroes and shonen protagonists.
In-universe, how powers are incredible strength, speed, endurance, etc. In actuality, his power is literally "cannot lose".
It's worth noting that when asked how strong he is, the original writer said that if Saitama were to punch as hard as he could, he'd destroy half the universe.
And only half because the other half would be behind him.
Obviously powerman's better since Saitama isn't designed to do anything but what a shonen character does best. He's not meant to be the best at everything, he's designed so that every challenge a shonen protagonist faces he could overcome without putting effort in it.
Powerman would, for example, beat him at video games.
Or Public Relations
Or any number of things
Pah, he spends all his time fighting, he couldn't win at anything else - for example video games, you think king (strongest man on earth) has ever touched a video game? No sir, he is training all day long for sure.
The other characters are the highlight of the show/manga.
>They took him out no sweat
Then it obviously wasn't really Saitama. They'd try to hit him a few times, he'd either tank it or avoid it, he'd suddenly realize he's missing his favorite TV show, and proceed to do what he does best.
I do like some good jap capeheroes. Cared more about Tiger&Bunny than... any western superhero anything.
I can think of one character who might take a few punches.
Tiger and Bunny was nice, but it had some issues.
Like, the parody of sponsership was pretty clever, but after about three episodes I realize that I was still having Jap ads in my face, except this time more blatantly and far more often.
It's plot was pretty wonky, bounced around too much. Like, the love letter to superheroes was nice and all, but it still seemed kind of eh. The X-Man factor was interesting, but it just wasn't deep enough, and the final plot line combined with the absolute lack of real resolution to it just ended up leaving a sour taste in my mouth. It suggests this whole thing as important, but doesn't really go into it at all, even though it has a huge implication across the entire show.
Combine that with the numerous sub plots and the fact that it only really resolves one of them to any real point and it made for a fun, if shallow and empty, show.
The whole point of his character, by nature, is that he's the strongest character in existence.
That's the entire point of his major character arc: Saitama can never meet someone stronger than him, because he is the single strongest person in existence.
I don't give a shit what people do to give their godmod jollies off, but saying you beat him in a fight showcases that you failed to understand the entire point of his character and the underlying theme of the series itself.
That's his major character arc within the show. That doesn't necessarily matter outside of the show when he is brought into other media.
Saitama has been defeated within my players' setting. That's just the cold hard fact of the situation. Say what you want about me misunderstanding the character but that doesn't alter the fact that in some sense, there are characters stronger than Saitama.
>but saying you beat him in a fight showcases that you failed to understand the entire point of his character and the underlying theme of the series itself.
All you're doing is claiming that your characters are Infinity + 1 power level, while Saitama is Infinity.
It's meaningless and pointless, and serves only as a poor attempt at a troll.
Yet within the setting we are using, it's true. There are characters that are stronger than Saitama.
There's no need to defend Saitama. Hell, I'm sure he'd be quite glad that he's capable of being defeated in mediums other than the one he exists in.
How about you shut tgat stupid mouth of your syou stupoid diposhit? you failed to ralixe the core consept of the fucking character and you are proud of it like some damn retard. Fuck of and die you dispshit.
What I don't understand is why having Saitama as fallible in the setting other than the one he exists in is considered 'trolling.'
I'd say that the setting is more interesting for the fact that Saitama can be defeated within it, rather than rehashing the premise of the show by depicting him as unbeatable.
It's not creative to just say that an invincible character is defeated in a game of pretend. Just don't put them in your stories, use purple prose about how people are so powerful in your setting they hit each others with universes.
OPM is more than a shitty DMPC because powerlevel wankery isn't the point of the show.
It's kind of like saying "Yeah, well my character can beat up the Christian God" without realizing that the Christian God is, canonically, infinitely powerful. Saitama is infinitely powerful, fast, and tough.
If you can defeat Saitama in your setting, you're not really fighting Saitama as he canonically is in his own setting - you're either fighting a version of him from when he was not infinitely powerful or a deliberately unpowered version of him.
A finitely powerful person cannot defeat an infinitely powerful person.
Canonically Yahweh is not almighty, there is not a single passage in canonical bible that says so. And yes you can can beat character who is infinitely powerful, fast, and tough. Trapping him within an alternate dimension is one way to do it. You could also erase him from a timeline and so on.
He's actually exactly what you described the first time. His training regimen was literally
>a 10km run
>every single day
And then he got stronk and the story began.
Saitama is not the point of OPM.
The shit around him is what makes the series great.
The reason he was included was to provide the players with a challenge in the form of a being on the 'infinite' scale of power. The point of the exercise was for them to overcome the obstacle of Saitama's infinite physical prowess and they were able to and moved on to the next challenge. It's that simple.
Following the example of Yahweh, he's depicted as omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent within the source material but there's countless forms of modern media in which he is slain, defeated or outclassed in some fashion. Saitama is not immune to the same treatment.
Anyone who argues about power levels in regards to OPM is fucking missing the point. They even make fun of power levels in the damn manga. These kind of threads are cancerous at the best of times, but it's even worse when it's involving material that tries to distance itself from this pointless bickering.
May as well go make a thread saying who would win in a fight, Popeye with Spinach or Droopy after Popeye wronged him somehow.
So it is basically a "/fit/ power fantasy", the anime?
Superman is also a moral paragon, he's inspirational. Saitama is a tongue-in-cheek character but the absurdity of the genre OPM parodies also make him a compelling character who's very different from Supes. He's a guy who wanted to become the strongest superhero, got his wishes, and found out it didn't fullfill him.
Previously mentioned Stardust the Super Wizard would mop the floor with Saitama for being a filthy fifty column trying to destroy civilisation forever. Because he would change him into a mop. A mop with a face. A bald face.
You don't understand. Stardust is the Super Wizard.
Now, sit and witness the tale of gains.
I know it's a joke, but has anyone ever figured out how Saitama became so powerful?
In his own words he just did a ridiculous strength training regime for three years. Genos calls bullshit on it and rightly so because if it was all just training then Saitama would only be as strong as Bang or that S-rank tank top guy and clearly he's beyond them.
The players wouldn't agree with that. They enjoyed the challenge. I'd be that GM if I presented them with a threat they couldn't kill.
A real 'that GM' includes a true-to-OPM Saitama in their game and greedily sticks to that 'nuh-uh, you totally can't beat him, he's infinitely more powerful than you' rhetoric while wearing a shit-eating grin.
I always thought it was a nice twist that I ended up enjoying the non-fighting parts of the show with Saitama, it seemed that's where the real challenges are for him like his public image and perception. I'm not sure if that's how it was supposed to be though.
Can I still grow a beard with absolute power? I mean Saitama still has eyebrows, so facial hair is game on.
If it's a hairless body then frankly I'd welcome it so I don't have to deal with the jungle of hair on my shoulders, back, and ass.
>Superman's power is that he wins no matter what, always
>most something most Supermans don't have
I bet that Michael Demiurgos & Lucifer Morningstar could each defeat even that Superman.
It's basically a study in creating a compelling story where there's no possibility for violent tension with the protagonist.
ONE is an immensely skilled story teller with a fantastic sense of humour considering how great it is
But you've activated my trap card that destroys your trap card!
> extreme Strength
> can one-punch anything physically destructible in basic/supers GURPS
> really fast
> about as smart as an 8th grader
By mass energy equivalence, his punches, if they contained enough energy, would produce significant gravitational effects. To the point of black holes if they were strong enough.
and the stunning conclusion
were any anons entertained by this?
Undertale is pretty good. Not the "OMG LOOKATITISSOPERFECT that much of the fanbase seems to think it is, but fun.
Music is very good. just listen to the soundtrack; you can hear the emotions the songs were meant to convey
I liked the graphics, however I am partial to pixel art
Characters are nice, have depth
Gameplay is good.
While the game does have meta elements, it keeps them in check. It makes no mention of how you "DON'T NEED TO KILL ANYONE," and doesn't constantly applaud itself.
I give it a soul/determination.
Some people don't read the download page, on account of massive fan-whoring.
What I meant was, nowhere in the actual game does it say you DON'T HAVE TO KILL ANYONE, except for the mercy button. It doesn't make a big deal out of it. You just face the aftereffects.
My bad man, should have clarified. It's been a while since I played it.
To be fair, Froggit tells you like three times to show Mercy to monsters even when their name isn't yellow before the Toriel fight.
I actually have stats for him, using Wild Talents!
Hyperbody - 4D + 3HD + 3WD (132 points). (Extra: No Upward Limit).
Extra Tough - 2HD - Two extra Wound Boxes per location.
Heavy Armor - 10HD. (Extra: Endless.)
Light Armor - 4 HD. (Extra: Endless)
Hypermovement - Jump - 10 HD: Sometimes, instead of just hitting people, Saitama hits them while flying at them. When he does this, he can add his Jump pool to his attack as Augment dice.
Immune (Whatever) 3HD: The deep vacuum of space? Who cares?
Base Will + 20.
Make something clear for me, ok?
Did you actually tell the players "Hey, this is Saitama from that anime one punch man that you are fighting with now"
Are you seriously this retarded, or are you gonna go and pretend like you trolled so good?
His power isn't that he's the strongest or fastest, his power more closely resembles an absolute, like how the power of the flash isn't being the fastest, its that he is an absolute for speed, he simply is fastER. The same goes for Saitama, he's simply strongER. It's like he became one of the absolute laws of his universe, law of Saitama.
to be fair though ryougi shiki only kills concepts, and even then, only if she can hit them, yes she's able to dodge bulelts and run at car speeds but i feel that isnt equivocal to one punch man, [ ] shiki however....
name a source that did so that didn't lampoon the fuck out of him....
hell, look at battlepope's God...he sure as fuck isn't the same god anyone but 'they who missed the memo' would.
to see Gods defeated usually is some strawman attempt, very much like Southpark Jesus
Isn't the Old Testament basically Christians shilling how their god is the most awesome and powerful?
Aren't all religious scriptures basically their respective followers saying about how great their religion is and how the others eat shit?
>Isn't the Old Testament basically Christians shilling how their god is the most awesome and powerful?
Awesome is arguable. It's more along the lines "he's gonna fuck your shit up if you don't submit".
Well he captured Kisame for about 3 minutes or so
Bought everyone some time against madara, it's too bad the creator ruined it by letting him live
Yes in the normal sense, actually no because god will give him the same punch back. Caine is doomed to be around forever so says the omnipotent god. I know super heroes fight gods all the time but this is literal creator of reality god. You dont get to fight him, hes on another level
