Poll Is Saitama Overrated? (73 votes)

Yes 74%
No 26%

I am an anime only watcher and from what I have seen soo far I would say Saitama is up there with the likes of supes but I just wanted the input of others to know if I am overating him.

I don't think he's really overrated. Fans of the character believe he is as powerful as they try to let everyone else to believe because he has 1) never been hurt in the slightest in any of his fights and 2) his physicals haven't really shown any upper limit. People are going off what they have seen, and though it is wrong in some ways, I can't blame them for thinking that way.

Depends, In terms of power, I think he is powerful but in terms of the character itself, Saitama is boring, bland and unfunny in my OWN PERSONAL OPINION THAT DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE BRAIN MASS IN YOUR HEAD.

He has no feats of any real consequence, biggest thing he's destroyed is a meteor, most damage ever done in the show probably a crater on the moon. If you see him as being that powerful, than no he's not overrated, if you see him as being more powerful based on statements and the fact that you don't know how to argue or use logic, than yes he is overrated.

Of course he's overrated! a kid could write up a story like OPM...there is poor character development. I could create a character called Booby-Dooby and say that Booby-Dooby is invincible and can beat every character by sneezing but holds back...same old story...

an episode consists of:

1) Saitama meets enemy

2) Saitama holds back

3) Saitama eventually punches enemy

4) enemy dies

5) rinse and repeat

(there's a little bit more to it but that's the gist of it)

People don't get the fact that his nickname is literal and he's consistently proved that. He's not overrated

@ready_4_madness: I do get the fact that he's a parody character but OPM is still overrated for the reasons I've put above. It's ok though because a lot of anime is overrated...Dragonball series, One Piece

@ready_4_madness: that doesn't make him Superman level. Is the unstoppable woman really unstoppable or was nothing shown to stop her? If Superman from now until 2021 beat all his villains, like doomsday, Darkseid, lex Luther, and Trigon (just to add an outlier) in a single punch would you say he's more powerful or equal to one punch man?

@hypnos0929: We all know that Superman won't and can't do that. One Punch Man's power is to defeat his enemies with One Punch, that's the entire concept. It doesn't matter how powerful you are, he's still going to beat you with a punch I don't know why that's so hard for people to comprehend.

The entirety of One Punch Man is overrated dribble. Ratman is the superior superhero manga.

Sorry but that's not true, Boros took dozens of punches and was still in fighting shape.

Saitama is a boring ABC character wrapped up in pretty animation.

He's a character built for trolling. OPM is like the Deadpool movie.. it's great if you understand the concept of the main character, other than that its nothing special.

He's overrated when you realize he's powerful for literately no good reason.. but he's hyped up as if his character has had years to grow into what it is now. He's a simple minded trash character created with 0 logic behind him. Saitama/OPM is a child's imagination made with adult money... but treated like a legend becuase of a outdated gimmick.

Nope, he's not.

People are just jealous/hate that their favorite characters get beat by a single punch.

@rukelnikovftw: Saitama held back the entire fight up until Boros in his final form threatened to planet bust and OPM literally says "Serious Punch" and kills him. In his final form.

Let's compare that fight to Rebirth Superman vs Doomsday, you really believe Superman is more powerful.

@ready_4_madness: you're right there. All it takes is one serious punch.

Even Boros said that Saitama held back.

OPM is good stuff... I've also read Ratman also good stuff.

as for the claim that OPM Is only pretty animation... strange that it got popular as a webcomic (I actually prefer the webcomic version sue me.)

If you don't like OPM thats fine... The humor probably isn't for you, or you simply don't get it. (looks up.)

I never said he wasn't holding back (or that Superman is more powerful, which i have no idea why you brought up) but the point still stands, Boros was not defeated in ONE PUNCH.

@rukelnikovftw: if you know that he held back what point are you making because he could've end the fight whenever he wanted. And you response to my post where I was debating against someone else about Saitama and Superman.

@rukelnikovftw: wait so what exactly is your point

You said:

"One Punch Man's power is to defeat his enemies with One Punch, that's the entire concept. It doesn't matter how powerful you are, he's still going to beat you with a punch"

Well, I cited a case where he didn't beat his enemy with a punch, was just correcting that.

Honestly I don't think Saitama is overrated. Unlike many anime main characters that took more time to become so strong as they are known to be now, Saitama's actual strength is very impressive for somebody who does not Take any fight seriously. One punch man is far from being over, so imagine how strong this character will be when this manga will be over. That's my humble opinion

Lol I knew people hated opm but this is just... crazy funny.

But what can I say people have different taste. Some people want only complex plot, characters, worlds, toilets, pizzas in their stories. While others might want simple chickens, fries, and monkey juice in their stories.

In the end it's all about what people like, no one man's opinion is better than an others even if it is the majority.

In terms of power? Kinda. In terms of character? No not really, of course there are other characters better than him but to say his powers are dumb and lack imagination is kinda of hilarious especially when it comes to a good portions of superheroes.

In terms of battles, yes, definitely.

In terms of character he's alright.
