After disrupting the Super Fight, he defeated S-class hero Genos, two A-class heroes, Sneck and Lightning Max, and dragon-rank Bazukan. All four of his eyes move independently and can cover a large area that tracks the opponent’s movements.

Bang is a serious person who likes to assess the situation before doing anything. His immense strength allows him to create enormous craters with a single punch. His tremendous speed and reflexes were enough for the fastest S-Class hero to comment on.

He also created the Water Stream Rock Smashing Fist, which is the “perfect combination of offense and defense,” as commented by Genos. Along with immense power, Bang is one of the strongest characters despite his age and appearance. 

6. Ancient Centipede

Due to his large size, Ancient Centipede causes mass destruction, and his tidal waves can destroy on a much higher level.

Boros, the leader of the Dark Matter Thieves, is an alien that faces an existential crisis as no battle is thrilling for him anymore. Boros came to Earth to find a suitable opponent for himself and died a satisfied death after having a great and exciting battle with Saitama.

The only opponent in the series who did not die from a single punch from Saitama is Boros. Several powers like energy projection, regeneration abilities, and power release make him a powerful opponent. Boros was also able to punch Saitama to the Moon from the surface of the Earth. 

3. Tatsumaki 

Tatsumaki- Strongest One Punch Man Characters Ranked!

Tatsumaki, also known as the Tornado of Terror, is the 2nd in rank amongst the S-Class heroes. Despite being arrogant and proud of her powers, everyone sees her as a child due to her petite figure.

She is the most powerful esper of the series, and her psychokinesis allows her to stop various powerful attacks. Bombs, increase in gravity, meteor-sized boulders, all are no match for her powers. 

2. Blast

Blast is the 1st in the rank of S-Class heroes and the strongest of the heroes. He is the one who almost killed the Elder Centipede. Tatsumaki’s younger sister Fubuki states that Blast is a class of his own and can take on the rest of the S-Class heroes single-handedly.

Not much is known about him, but it is for sure that he is powerful enough to get an acknowledgment from Tatsumaki, who looks up to only him. 

1. Saitama

Saitama- Strongest One Punch Man Characters Ranked!

Saitama, the series’ main protagonist, is the strongest of the characters. He can take care of his opponents with a single punch. To reach where he is right now, Saitama followed a strict regime of daily exercises to the maximum level.

Saitama is humble and comical as he does not remember names or faces that he mispronounces often. His superhuman strength and stamina allow him to generate shockwaves, afterimages, run on water, etc.

No one in the series has been able to injure him. Saitama takes on monsters without much effort and does want fame for his actions. He does not care if people insult him but takes offense when someone calls him out for his baldness. 

Final Thoughts

Saitama has given us a lot of powerful characters who have vital roles in the series. Saitama teaches us that we should not care much about what people say but be more focused on doing good without wanting much fame.

It is a simple action anime with various comic elements that keeps the mood light and enjoyable. The third season of the anime is on the way, and there sure will be more strong characters to be appreciated.
