All One-Punch Man fans know very well that, if Saitama stands out for something, the protagonist of the One-Punch Man manga is for his level of absolute power and what he has shown throughout history. In fact, with touches of humor it has been established that this character is ridiculously powerful, who doesn’t even care about the villains he faces.
Something that seems quite curious to us is that, although his power level has been clear to us from the beginning, as well as his other abilities, his ability to resist blows was still a mystery. And it was like that until the publication of chapter 163 of the One-Punch Man manga, in which we were finally given a point of reference to understand Saitama’s defense.
This time we show you all the details, but you should know that this is a lot of Spoiler. Readers and lovers of the One-Punch Man manga often try to measure the power level of the characters in this work on understandable scales.
Evidently when it comes to Saitama, this becomes extremely complicated, as the same manga makes fun of how ridiculously powerful he is. However, fans of this manga have used all kinds of scenes to try and get closer to his power level. For example, they determined his brute strength through his ability to lift extremely heavy items.
They did the same for its speed when measuring the jump it took from the Moon to Earth. But defending him has always been a mystery. In fact, Saitama doesn’t even bother to dodge the enemy’s blows because he knows that he will resist them with no problem. However, in chapter 163 of the manga, during his fight against Garou, a former Hero Hunter turned monster, we were able to determine how far his defense goes.
After dealing a blow with accumulated energy to Saitama, which is released after reaching him, he collides with a volcano that was behind him and is destroyed. However, to no one’s surprise, the one-hit hero came out unscathed, while that massive mountain was smashed to dust. This allows us to conclude that Saitama is much more resistant than a mountain, which is saying a lot.
