The opening plays in my head everytime I see something related to VOTOMs.
I made a cropped version of this pic my wallpaper so I can hear it every-fucking-time I use my computer.
>Cthulhu shows up
>Saitama's presence isn't even recognizable since even Seers couldn't sense Saitama
>Cthulhu makes the entire Jobber Association job
>Saitama shows up after his house is destroyed and just kicks Cthulhu into another dimension out of irritation that his house got all dusty again
>If it was against Azazoth or Nyarlahotep, then you'd have a debate.
Also, one punch.
The real question is:
Would the Flying Spaghetti Monster stand a chance against Saitama?
Or perhaps it would become just another convenient meal for him to stumble upon yet again.
Not really a contest, besides your question has already been answered.
Saitama is above the entire universe anon
That attention to gruesome detail (the remaining spine sticking it out in this case) always gets me in OPM. We have these intelligent, talking creatures who are treated, or rather disposed of with the most casual brutality, it's a little bit eerie. Even if that makes me sound like a sissy faggot.
Saitama is a weak piece of shit whose serious punch only blocked a sub-planet buster in his fight against that one eye guy, Saitama isn't even Nappa level much less Cthulu.
Not lesser but also not one of the strongest
IM SO SICK OF THESE THREADS SO IM GONNA BUMP THEM!
Cthulhu is a Great Old One you fucks.
Elder Gods are the dreams of mortals, trivial flighty nothings that only exist in the Dreamlands, they mean nothing to the cosmos at large.
While that image is hilarious, it misses the point.
Azathoth does not destroy the universe. Azathoth is the one causing the universe to exist. The only reason the universe is the universe is because Azathoth is deluding himself into believing it is.
If the dream ends, there is no universe. It just vanishes like an illusion. There will be no Yog-Sothoth, no Nyarlathotep. The entire spectrum of existence ends.
No strength will save you from that because the thing granting your existence has stopped granting it.
He intentionally ran into that sword.
Do you know how many Gs going from stationary to moving at near light speed would put on their bodies? They would probably suffer more harm than if they'd just stayed there and gotten nuked.
This is why nobody over the age of 12 takes this garbage seriously.
Who gives a fuck lovecraft's universe is no different from any shitty japanese anime in terms of depth.
For fucks sake there are at least several series where the main character is some embodiment of the universe, not to mention fucking demonbane.
No idead why people act like cthulu or the other great old ones are somehow better than other cliche overpowered omnipotent fanwank.
I fucking love the flash, best super hero.
Cthulhu is only even a threat to the world because of all the power creep that authors after Lovecraft heaped onto him to make him still something to be afraid of in a world with jets, bombers, cruise missiles, and nuclear warheads.
The point of Lovecraft's stories was never about 'OH MUH GOD THESE HORRIBLE ANCIENT THINGS ARE SOOOO POWERFUL THEY CAN WIPE OUT HUMANITY WITH A THOUUUGHT', that's just the stupid modern insistence on power levels that later authors imposed on his characters. The point is that mankind is not as important as it thinks it is, full stop, the intentions or power levels of the 'greater' races are completely irrelevant because the focus is on the self-insert protagonists' minds straining and breaking under the weight of their revelations about their place in the universe.
Cthulhu was soundly defeated by ramming a ship into his face and exploding him. Later authors have come up with a billion reasons why this is not indicative of Cthulhu's true power, but all they're doing is trying to make Lovecraft's monsters scary because they're powerful, not scary because of the creeping horror of the realization of man's place in the cosmos.
They also tend to try to justify the insanity that the protagonists experience on contact with the monsters as a universal effect, but the protagonists of Lovecraft's stories were never brave or heroic or in any way a representation of a grounded, well-adjusted individual to begin with. They were already fucked up and their interactions with the supernatural only pushed them further down the slide to insanity.
This is why every powerlevel argument regarding any characters or creatures from Lovecraft's writings spit in the face of his every single story, and only reinforce the stupid, stupid, stupid butcherings of his works that all the later authors have made.
tl;dr fuck these threads
No dude you've been reading too much of the modern crap, Lovecraft never laid out any such power tiers or anything like that in his actual stories because they were completely irrelevant and only serve to detract from the whole intention of his writings
>Cthulhu was soundly defeated by ramming a ship into his face and exploding him.
Go read the damn story.
He wasn't "exploded", he dispersed his physical body himself to avoid the boat.
Him starting to reassemble is one of the last things the Narrator remembers from the incident.
I'm pretty sure it's made explicit that the ship crashed into his face, which heavily implies that he exploded from the impact, not to 'avoid the boat'. The fact that he reassembles as if it hardly hurt him is what's supposed to be horrifying about it, but even that is not the bloody point of the story.
That's were you're wrong. Wanpun would hit Cthulhu and squidface would explode but he'd just end up back in Ryleath. When Saitama finally dies of old age or some weak sauce shit, Cthulhu will still be alive and fucking mortals up.
Wow. This is actually a thing.
This must be from the eighties.
Why try to explain things logically? The reason they don't die from getting grabbed by the Flash is because of the Speed Force.
Similar with Superman. The reason people don't die from being caught by superman is that he can extend his invulnerability to things he touches. And why his clothes dont vaporize but his cape does.
