The thing is we do not know his capabilities.
He stomped a guy that counquered the entire universe.
The remaining energy of a not full power strike by him could still have severaly damaged the planet and caused its demise even after it went against a planet destroying attack and hit a super being.
Leave it to this guy right here. I'll be severely disappointed if OPM ends without him destroying at least a dozen multiverses.
That so called universe conqueror unleashed his full power which according to him, would only destroy the planet's surface. He can't even destroy planets at will.
So far, all of Saitama's Serious series moves are still just acts of superhuman feats on the scale of natural disasters at best. He hasn't shown anything capable of even destroying the planet. I was already being lenient classing him at planet-destroying.
Beowulf of course!
Strength of 30 men, in each hand!
Many of the villains in OPM claim shounen-esque bullshit, but their feats show that they're weak.
Take the lightspeed slash, for example. A slash at lightspeed would literally tear through the arena. But it didn't.
>like five miles
Also flash speed
It's obviously a gag manga but can you imagine the buttrage to see Saitama demolish the likes of Dio?
let's try not to bhe /co/ here
if that was the case
the living tribunal
would destroy saitama very easy
more like super target, no way would he win
there's just more of him to hit
if you're trying to go all infinite mass punch on saitama, that literally just gives him more things to hit
can't talk for most of those though
a good fight, galactus would lose
>the living tribunal
ayyyyy lmfao he's dead
pre-retcon Beyonder is cheating
current Beyonder is a scrub
good fight, which is more powerful? Comedy plot armour or the Speed Force?
why would they fight
the Galactus is a cosmic being that is integral to the operation of the universe, you can't kill him permanently
he's still a scrub, Franklin fucking Richards made him his bitch
molecular bombs or some shit like that.
Put that inside the saitama.
>Saitama need to punch himself to win
>saitama beat saitama
guys....Saitama is gonna get the blame for A City, isn't he?
Oh god please let this not be true
No, it isn't a trick like the "Running hot and cold water over a metal spoon" thing.
The heat makes the seal loosen, making it easier to twist off.
You only run the lid under the water, not the jar itself. Use a paper towel to dry it off if necessary.
The benefit of this is it doesn't mess with the seal long term, like using a spoon as a prybar or puncturing the top does.
You can also use ducttape as leverage, but I find the hot water method simpler.
Saitamas power lies in his comedy plot armor.
This means that any powerful enemy will be easily defeated, but weak enemy's that are funny for Saitama to struggle against cannot be defeated by him and can actually injur him.
Case in point the mosquito from the first few chapters is impervious to Saitamas attacks, while a cat from a side story is able injure him, where enemy's of dragon level danger cannot.
If you want to beat Saitama all that is required is to set a weak creature or creatures to endurance hunt him.
The weaker and less threatening you are, the more resistant and damage you can actually inflict on Saitama.
Only the weakest person would be able to beat the strongest.
And who is the weakest?
The mosquito only survived because it was trapped in between the spaces between Saitama's hands. And it didn't bite him a single time.
As for the cat, the "scratches" are somewhat like the scratches when you lightly run your fingernails over your skin. It's basically just peeling off dead detritus. If a cat ACTUALLY scratched someone, they wouldn't try to punch it, they would be on the ground screaming in pain.
Also, when you're expecting pain or whatever, especially during a fight, of course you wouldn't react. Saitama probably barely feels some force when he's getting smashed up by tough enemies, but he never expected the cat to scratch him. People say "Ow!" all the time when something that doesn't actually hurt happens to them.
Can't a psychic just levitate them and put him in a vacuum?
He won't be able to do anything, can't create any shockwave or get leverage off anything. He has no "special" abilities he is just raw physical power.
No one. Saitama was designed to be unbeatable without reasons. Something like Demonbane was said to be unbeatable but look at all those stinking reasons. Saitama is what Demonbane would be if there are no reasons why he is so powerful.
Could Squirrel Girl out plot-armor his plot-armor?
The answer is always GER. I'm so glad Araki created such a broken stand, I can post it in all these threads.
Depends on how Stands can interact with Saitama, but even if he could phase his stand inside of Saitama, Saitama is too durable for Dio's stand to do anything. It'd be equivalent to what Tamaki was trying to do to 1 Billion Golden Sperm Man, except orders of magnitude more negligible.
Saitama's feats far surpass Tatsuya's.
And now with color
No, anon, his gimmick is that he can do anything. If you sent him to another dimension, he would walk back; if you dropped him in lava, he would yawn and climb out; if you wore indestructible armor to fight him, he would break it easily.
>Ignoring the casual moon-busting feat posted a bit above you
Again you're missing the point of his character. Saitama is essentially Powerman. He's there to be invincible and more powerful than anything. If superman comes into the field. He becomes more powerful than superman.
Using feats to judge his actual power goes against his character.
Then he's a worthless character who there's no point to. Why write a character who can't be beaten? I understand Power Man because he's made by some dude who was annoyed by nerds arguing about this shit but the main character should always be beatable. With this, I can conclude that OPM is a shitty manga
It was a halfassed "semi-serious" punch that not only vaporized half a cosmic overlord with Cell-level regeneration abilities, but also punched through that guy's Planet-Destroying beam attack.
>Makes an erroneous bullshit conclusion about a story due to the fact that he can't find a way to make his own favorite character(s) win against the MC
You guys are the ones who make these threads and say YOUR CHARACTER CAN'T BEAT MINE HURR. If a character doesn't go through hardships and just wins all the time then there's no point. The way you guys were leading me on I thought he was like Medaka x1,000,000
But this makes much more sense
I didn't make this thread, nigga. Maybe you should, I dunno, actually /read/ the source material before trying to declare it shit because a character's infinite power is actually a plot device?
The point of the goddamn manga is taht even with his unbeatable power, Saitama still faces hardships of other forms, etc. WHy did you try to declare a manga terrible when you haven't even read it before?
>The way you guys were leading me on I thought he was like Medaka x1,000,000
Is this nigga serious? You're trying to blame us for the fact that you were trying to argue about shit you haven't read?
Alright then shit I'm sorry I guess. I don't know what to say. Looks like I have a new manga to read. Is it fun?
I don't know should you? That like saying should I read X in an X thread. Since it is a fighting manga you can read it in a couple hours.
Retard. If you haven't read it, don't comment on it.
I don't know, but this is color by murata himself. You can see the difference in the levels of coloring from a professional.
I just noticed: the guy who colored this ADDED IN THE MOON AND STARS.
The problem with Saitama is that his universe is based purely on the physical.
That means no reality warping, only hardcore fist punching power or anything related to physics.
If you remove anyone who has powers related to these, Saitama wouldn't be defeated.
However, he could be killed by different means such as starvation, lack of oxygen or being thrown into space.
As far as punching power goes, Saitama always wins.
This would work but not defeat him.
Hence why a mosquito would possibly annoy him to death but maybe not kill him.
Okay you nigger, I've been searching for forever now and I can't find any of these shonen jump chapters.
Is there some download I'm missing here? All I'm finding are muslims and italians translating it.
it would simply smash through whatever reflection field/magic it is, or it would make the punch reflect again onto the guy for a double punch that disintegrates him instantly.
Could Accelerator beat him? Or is Saitamas body so strong he can withstand the power of his own power? Either way, I'm pretty sure that Accel could still just reverse his blood flow or something. The only downfall I see in this is that Accelerator would have to touch him to do so, and at that point Saitama would of already most likely swung for him if he understood he was a threat. But if you look at Accelerator, or pretty much anyone from the To Aru universe they don't look the least bit threatening. So would Saitama see it coming?
God damn it, seeing Accelerator here reminds me of the Legend of Zeldatards that seriously think Link can slash at the speed of light and planet bust with ease and saying Demise beat an omnipotent. And I questioned "Is this how it feels to debate Flash vs Accelerator on 4chan?".
Accelerator can't do shit to Saitama. Even Saitama blood flow is too strong for Accelerator to effect. You need to understand this, Saitama was designed to be unbeatable in a fight but if it's a game or some test than maybe he would lose. If you warp his existence, he would just come back and punch you and existence away. That's how OPM logic works.
The zelda wankers would probably argue that Saitama can't beat Ganondorf because "only mastersword can kill them lol". I'm going to post Saitama vs Ganon now, thx for idea mang.
Guys, Saitama's power isn't super strength, or super speed, or super anything.
Saitama's power is the ability to END ALL FIGHTS AFTER ONE PUNCH.
It doesn't matter what he's fighting or how, he even beat an entire army of ant men things, how? By punching each and every single ant man? No, by punching ONE OF THEM ONCE.
That is his power, simple as that. It doesn't matter what powers his opponent possesses, one punch and Saitama wins.
>even with his unbeatable power, Saitama still faces hardships of other forms
>That omake where he really wants to try that new soda
>Only has 90 yen to his name
How dare you doubt the Pig God.
One thing I liked about the Garou arc is that it gave some of the other S ranks time to shine, and let you see a bit more of their own histories and personalities. Some of the ones that seem really silly like Super Alloy DarkShine and Pig God are actually really respectable heroes.
That's amateur status. I'm mediocre at best and I still do ~10 a day with a 15 mile long run.
Feels great once you're in shape, I honestly couldn't imagine not doing it every day.
I like the differentiation between Saitama and the other heroes like Pig God.
Pig God is injured but leaves the hospital out of a sense of duty to finish off the Monsters.
Saitama vanishes... to go back to his old house and find his stuff.
My Sonic fan character could beat him
No, his power is that he's so strong that he CAN kill anything in a single punch. There's a difference. He isn't some kind of glass cannon. but he also isn't some kind of reality warper (yet).
Sub-atomics bombs inside the saitama.
>Well why the fuck not
>Can tank planet-busting yields casually
>Also, "sub-atomic atomic bombs"
There are so many things wrong with what you tried to suggest that I just can't even.
I keep checking the catalog for any OPM threads, but this is the only one. Saitama is far and far from unbeatable. His power isn't to end a fight in one punch, like many here say, it's just that he's so strong that he has the ability to since he can destroy anything that's build up into something physical. Saitama is just an idiosyncrasy. Something went wrong in the laws of nature, and he apparently broke it with his training and thus lost his limiters.
Can Goku beat saitama, if not why?
Okuyasu from JJBA part 4. His stand can erase any thing it touches.
The Facebook Death Battle group. There be a shitstorm brewing every. fucking. day.
Here's a taste of retarded zelda fanwank.
Also as soon as I looked back he commented again....after fucking hours later.
Brandon Shea auron's the best and my favorite from 10 by far... but i think link's got this one. people under estimate him because of the in game content. they only see how the feat is being depicted rather than what the feat is. for instance, in theoretical physics hitting light is impossible unless reaching it's insubstantial wavelength. that's only theoretically possible by vibrating at light speed or faster becoming briefly massless. link's seen hitting light based magic from gannondorf. light based implying that it is made of pure light, or photons. this means link's sword swing is off the charts. theoretically he can swing at light speed, meaning his impact force is 71 trillion kilo-newtons of force. that's more force than a supernova can generate by a great deal.(yes the blast itself doesn't move light speed, but the photon's illuminating from the blast always move at light speed. meaning just the sheer fact he can physically hit them, rather than just cast a shadow and take the damage, means that he can in fact vibrate his molecules at light speed.) personally i think of it as less of his doing and more of fi's doing. she is referred to as the goddess of the master sword and has numerous magical perks including repelling light magic. so on a theoretical level that could simply mean she moves light speed then hits the photons to repel them. then take FD mask into consideration, and you cube his damage output. http://zeldawiki.org/Weapon_Strength that link clearly shows the master swords damage in a meter of 2. the FD mask related damage jumps to 8. 2x2x2=8 showing that it does triple. meaning that it goes from 71 trillion kilo-newtons to... well he's called a Fierce Deity for a reason.
stroheim said that if you tear kars into pieces his body will stop working and he will die, saitama could easily turn dio into powder
saitama is the demonbane of the opm universe
Saitama is massively overrated when it comes to "strongest fiction character debate", he's pretty much invincible in the one punch man world because most attacks there consist of physical damage of some sort. If he's up to abilities that can bend the rule of the world itself, like in Jojo, there's probably alot of characters that could anull him.
God is going to be antagonist in the future
Take a guess who is going to win
Notice how in this manga Saitama will never let a sharp object strike him directly?
Makes me wonder if there's a weapon that could pierce Saitama.
or we could just send nanaya shiki after him.
Flash can simply steal all of Saitama's speed and turn him into a statue
My point exactly. A tiny object like a cats claw is enough to make him say ouch.
Lets just pierce saitama with the spear of nyarlothotep or something. Maybe even
final form gurren lagann
That's only because if you expect to punch yourself you will tense up and mitigate it a bit, but if it is by surprise that you end up punching yourself it would hurt just as much as a stranger doing it. Anyways saitama has never used his full power so his weak punches wouldn't hurt himself.
But that guy is exactly right. The point of Saitama is that he's so powerful that even he finds his fights boring. This removes any possible tension the manga could have as battle shounen, because the main character can show up and fix everything at will. This means that, from an action stand point, the manga is a gimmick written for power level threads. If you say it's a comedy, it really isn't a very funny one, at least in my opinion. I have no idea why this manga is so popular, unless people are simply unfamiliar with any decent battle shounen.
HIs other hardships are straight up gags. We never feel his suffering or become emotionally involved when he has difficulty returning a cat.
He can't fix everything, he can just beat opponents. He's destroyed two cities himself before, and isn't capable of fixing them. And.. All your tension relies on the MC fighting? Isn't that really boring for you? Other characters are interesting too
>I need XYZ elements in order for something to be good
I personally enjoy the series because of the presentation. It's not meant to be taken as something tense or serious because you know at the end of the day OPM will just solve the problem. I like the reaction of the bad guys and seeing just how far Saitama's power goes. Apparently, working out every day like he did will make you strong enough to survive crashing to the moon and re-entering Earth's atmosphere.
He can't fix everything, but he can resolve everything, or make problems go away. There's no point in having villains show up if they're not even half a threat, which means most of the manga is dead space.
Besides, one day there might be an enemy that can attack multiple places at once. As strong as Saitama is, he can't protect the entire planet. There's definitely room for tension
The villains are only not a threat to him directly, they're still capable of fighting everyone else. What if they use someone as a hostage? What if hundreds of things? You seem to be basing your opinion entirely on whether the MC can actually be hurt or not
What if everyone in his universe is extremely weak?
And that's why doing a regiment of 101 push ups, 101 sit ups, 101 squats, and run 11km every day, which isn't very hard, makes him the strongest.
The point of the story isn't whether or not the Saitama can beat the villains, it's about what happens to the people affected by it, and the way that the characters in the universe interact with events as well as the ways in which people are influenced/affected by Saitama's actions, words, etc.
Anon, there have been literally bajillions of discussions as to how Saitama got his power. No, not everyone in his universe is super weak. He removed his limiter, and it was only possible because HE was originally super weak. But he was badass enough/had enough pure willpower to literally defy creation/fate/destiny w.e.
Except Saitama is, at heart, poorly written. When homes are destroyed because of the meteor, he doesn't feel any conflict. Instead, a mob of ingrates yell at him and, like a martyr, he accepts all hatred. Saitama has no psyche; he has Gary Stu levels of self effacement and lacks any real flaws. This could change, but so far OPM is a beautifully drawn, awful manga.
To add, Saitama doesn't get angry at people or yell at them, he just takes all the blame in every situation and moves on. In every test of character he's come across as nearly perfect.
If you're trying to make OPM's fanbase look stupid, you're doing alright.
...Are you serious? Did you even read that scene? Saitama yells straight back at them. He doesn't feel conflict because he knows that if he hadn't destroyed the meteor, all the homes would have been destroyed along with the people living in them. He doesn't appear to have many flaws currently, no, but that doesn't make him a badly written character by a long shot.
Just imagine it's Speed of Sound Sonic trying to ninja you
>Saitama doesn't get angry at people or yell at them
Saitama does get angry, he yells at the mob and at the hero hunter.
One Punch Man is entertaining because dispite being a Gary Stu he acts like a exceedingly normal person, while heros of justice and villains do the whole shonen powerup thing he just beats everyone. It's funny.
If you don't like the manga then fuck off.
>no desire to be famous
>no desire even to be recognized for his actions
>gives credit to others when it belongs to himself
>yells only when he's entirely in the right to do so
>shoulders poverty instead of using his near omnipotence to live an easy life through threats of violence
>has no flaws
You're missing the point since the whole reason Saitama became a hero and had the willpower to become a superbeing was because he had a vague but still important idea of being a hero. He lacks flaws because that's what his ideal of heroism tells him to do.
The story itself is conducted in an unorthodox manner since it's not about the protagonist developing (mentally and physically) but rather about the plot catching up with the development of the protagonist already happened.
Besides flaws aren't necessarily a trait needed for a well written character, that's only really true if you want to depict a realistic character. Many character in comics are however caricatures with exaggerated traits, that's the whole idea of original superheros are based on.
Also keep in mind this was a gag practice manga from the beginning the first 10 chapters were probably made on the go.
>no desire to be famous
Okay there's no way you can be wrong this many times without having not actually read the manga.
>no desire to be recognized
He doesn't feel the need to go around shouting "Hey look guys I beat this monster I did it I saved you all" because that's not what his idea of a hero is, and also because jesus who would actually do that
He's given credit to others before, but he's always had a legitimate reason for doing so, like in the Sea King fight. He didn't want the citizens or the heroes to lose faith in the heroes, and he did take an incredibly long time to get to the fight. Without those heroes all the civilians would be dead so he did literally owe the heroes for delaying Sea King.
>only when he's in the right
Why would he yell otherwise?
>threats of violence
He is a /hero/. Do you not understand this? Heroes are designed to have as little flaws as possible. Even if he is a Gary Stu, he's still incredibly enjoyable so who cares?
>Heroes are designed to have as little flaws as possible
>because he is a hero he does not need to have flaws
>heroes are not actual characters
You must read really shitty fiction. Also, look to >>111161597. In this very thread he says he doesn't care if he's recognized.
Except for the fact that all he fucking cares about is being recognized and that's the only reason he joined the Hero Association in the first place?
You don't need flaws to be a good character. We don't know that he isn't just acting in the way a hero would act to portray himself as a hero either. You must read really asstight fiction.
Referring to >>111161597, in earlier chapters, the entire basis behind him joining the Hero Association was to be recognized. He says he didn't become a hero solely to be admired. Because that isn't what a proper hero would do. Are you beginning to understand now?
>In every test of character he's come across as nearly perfect.
Except for the fact that he tells a crowd of angry people to go fuck themselves and the fact that he scored a 2 on the mental aptitude test. He only takes the heat that one time because his student was in danger. His motivation to become a superhero was fame and bloodlust.
He's tactless (pic related), petty, and irresponsible.
>wants to be admired as a famous hero by the world
>doesn't care about whether or not he's admired by idiots who blame him for destroying their homes even though he saved their lives
What about this is so difficult to understand?
I crucial part of the character of Saitama is his respect for the like of King and the C-rank rider guy. They're the opposite of what Saitama is in that they're weak but charismatic and trusted by the populace. They live up to a sort of hero ideal that he strives for and the lack of which in the hero organization disillusions him.
Autistic niggers these days can only think in absolutes. They haven't had enough of a social life to understand basic human behavior, only enough to get cocky and believe they do.
