Saitama – the titular One-Punch Man – is definitely the “leader” among the overpowered characters. He is thought to be invincible but there is another mysterious and overpowered hero that just might be stronger than him, Blast. So, who would win in a fight between Blast and Saitama?
Blast is not stronger than Saitama, who, thus, remains the most powerful character in the series. Saitama has effortlessly defeated numerous opponents, including a common enemy he has with Blast, Elder Centipede, whom Blast has managed to defeat but with a lot of effort, whereas Saitama kicked his ass without almost any effort at all.
Now that you have the short version of the answer, the rest of the article is going to tell you, through several categories, exactly who the stronger of the two is and why our answer is like it is. In the end, we’re going to give our final verdict and explanation on why we think that Saitama would be able to defeat Blast.
It is not known exactly what powers he has or how strong he is but Sitch guarantees that, should humanity ever be in danger, Blast will surely show up. Given his esteem, he should also be able to deal with a God-level enemy. Storm tells in an interview in the Fanbook, under the false name of Mrs T, but she doesn’t really know, that Blast is capable of facing and defeating everyone including the S-class heroes alone.
The origin of Saitama’s immense strength is mysterious and unclear. Although he tells everyone that he got the incredible power from him through mere physical training, no one believes it at all. According to Saitama, after a year and a half of 100 daily push-ups, sit-ups, and squats plus 10 km of running daily, he had reached a certain level of superhuman strength.
This training was apparently so intense for Saitama that he sometimes felt that he might die, and he claims that it was what caused all of his hair to suddenly fall out. Apparently, he continued his training for another year and a half before beginning his career as a hero.
Saitama’s legacy in the world of One-Punch Man is incomparable to anyone else’s; he is not only the saga’s titular character, he is also its strongest hero and that is why he gets the opening point.
Points: Blast 0, Saitama 1
Blast has incredible speed and reflexes. He was able to react to and dodge one of Flashy Flash’s fastest attacks at close range, making him appear behind him in the blink of an eye and completely shocking him.
Blast has immense physical strength and can effortlessly carry the Mysterious Cube around, even playfully spinning it on his fingertip. However, the Cube is so heavy that Flashy Flash’s arm gets stuck underneath it and sinks into the ground when it is flung away from Saitama.
Saitama possesses immense physical strength, so much so that he is able to easily defeat monsters, machines, and criminals with a single punch, no matter how powerful, because Saitama is way too strong.
Saitama can perform jumps over astronomical distances, such as when he returns to Earth from the Moon with a jump whose force he estimates to deploy according to the low gravity.
His strength has no known limit. Even in the case of a powerful Dragon-level scourge, Saitama could destroy it with one blow as is proven with Mutant, who himself had a chasm of power separating him from Bakuzan. Very few enemies, like Boros, were able to survive a single basic attack and continue the fight.
Saitama is also blessed with spectacular speed. A ninja-like Thundering Sonic looks slow next to him. He is able to complete a 1,500-meter course in an instant – even Genos’ computerized targeting systems have difficulty tracking him.
He can use his speed to run vertically along a building to save a piece of salmon he intended to eat for lunch. Even Boros in Meteoric Boost is slower than him.
Saitama can take all kinds of impacts or flames and without taking a single bruise. When Genos created a huge explosion by his Incineration to kill Mousmétique’s mosquitoes, Saitama stood beside him completely unscathed and unperturbed despite the heat of the flames.
To make him move, as soon as he decides to stay still, even a man as powerful as Suiryû has a hard time managing to make him move back a few meters with his Nebulous Fist of the Rabid Tiger. He also survived a knee lift by Boros in its Meteoric Boost form, and going from Earth to Moon he crashed into the star without any damage.
Although it’s not perfectly clear due to Blast still being an unknown character, based on what we know, Saitama is more powerful than Blast, which is why he deservedly gets this point as well.
Points: Blast 0, Saitama 2
Blast has some sort of ability to create portals that allow him to move through another dimension or transfer objects. When he creates a portal resembling a black hole to teleport himself, Flashy Flash, Saitama, and Manako, he clenches his fists and an infinity symbol appears above his fists.
Saitama doesn’t aim better than an ordinary person. In particular, he has been wrong in his estimations, such as when he unintentionally punched Saitama prefers close combat and uses his fists to defeat enemies without any fighting techniques.
Thanks to his speed, no opponent, not a warrior prodigy with years of experience, not even a martial arts genius, can stand up to him. When he didn’t have super strength, he demonstrated some fighting wits by managing to defeat a Tiger calamity monster by exploiting his weak spot and using his tie.
Whatever Blast might be able to do is still, as it seems, weaker than Saitama’s deadly punch. Due to this, we can only give this point to Saitama as well.
Points: Blast 0, Saitama 3
Blast Vs. Saitama: Who Wins?
The numbers have said it all – Saitama is the clear winner here. Now, this might actually change as Blast’s story develops, but from this point of view, it seems that he is not more powerful than Saitama. People usually think he might be because he is powerful and we don’t know a lot about him, but as it stands, he would not be able to defeat Saitama.
The best way to compare them, currently, is by observing their battle with Elder Centipede. Whereas both of them won, Blast had to put in much more effort than Saitama and still failed to kill Elder Centipede, while Saitama effortlessly killed this monstrosity. That is why we think that Saitama is the winner here.
