He is a normal guy who trained so hard that he went bald and became more powerful than anything and anyone.

Its a parody of the superhero anime genre is what made it one of the best anime available on Netflix.

For the animation, the J.C.Staff will be taking the responsibilities. Madhouse has been amazing with the animation of the series. J.C.

One Punch Man Characters

Saitama is the main character of the series and he is also known as the Bald Hero. As a part of the Hero Association, he fights the monsters and villains. There is no doubt that Saitama is the most powerful hero alive. As a result, he can take down any villain.
also known as the One Punch Man and the Hairless Hero. He is facing an existential crisis as he is way too powerful for his opponents. That’s why he thinks life is boring. But, with the arrival of Garou also known as The Hero Hunter things will get really interesting as a faceoff between these two is a talking point of the One Punch Man Season 2.
He is a very calm and cool kind of personality and he is indeed different from other main characters of anime series. Saitama isn’t much interested in his hero work because no one is able to pose a challenge to him. This is the reason he is in constant search of a villain that can challenge him.
The best part about Saitama is that he lets his opponent gain full power. Then out of nowhere knocks him down with just one blow.

Genos is a cyborg and he is a disciple of Saitama. In the form of a handsome young man his body is kind of mechanical. He is also working for the Hero Association and his goal is to become more powerful and protect the people of the city.
He is A character who is way stronger than all the other S Class heroes but still fails short to defeat Saitama. But Genos is one of those characters who has been by Saitama side all the time. His abilities as a cyborg are very strong and on the other hand, his ignition is powerful along with amazing speed and strength.
Speed-o-Sound Sonic is another major character which had a huge part to play in the One Punch Man Season 1. He first appeared in the season as a bodyguard to Zeniru and he was a rival of Saitama and a villain of the first season of OPM as well.
As far as his appearance is concerned, he was thin yet strong I mean very strong. When Sonic attacked Saitama for the first time all of his attacks had no effect at all on Saitama. As all his attacks were blocked with grace and ease. When Sonic tried to attack Saitama in their second encounter, Saitama broke his sword with his teeth and that was simply astonishing.
On the other hand, though he took Saitama as his rival there was a huge power difference between these two. He worked really hard to find a way to defeat him but everything went in vain as Saitama was way too powerful.
The green haired girl in One Punch Man is Tornado Tatsumaki. She is at rank 2 as an S class hero and is the top female superhero in the series. Her age is around 28 years old in the first season and she has curly green hair. She is the older sister of Fubiki and she is the only one for which Tornado has a soft spot. Otherwise, anyone comes her way she greets them with a cold attitude.
