** Garou basically beat all of the heroes he faced during his "Hero Hunt" besides Saitama, [[spoiler:including most of S-class, and several Demon/Dragon level monsters before becoming a perfect monster]]. It's ambiguous as to whether he was actually stronger than Boros in the end though.

to:

** Gouketsu, the last monster fought by Saitama at the end of the TournamentArc, [[spoiler: [[OffscreenMomentOfAwesome gets defeated offscreen]], not leaving much room to compare him to previous villains. He probably subverts this though; considering how little time it took for him to be defeated, it's likely he only took one punch.]]
** Garou basically beat all of the heroes ends up being a DoubleSubversion. While he faced during his "Hero Hunt" besides Saitama, [[spoiler:including most of S-class, and several Demon/Dragon level monsters before starts out much weaker than Boros, getting knocked out on ''three separate occasions'' by nonchalant singular attacks, he [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePotential grows stronger after every fight]], [[spoiler: culminating in him becoming a perfect monster]]. It's ambiguous as [[OneWingedAngel "Perfect Monster"]] able to whether he was actually stronger than Boros in the end though.continue fighting even after taking a direct Serious Series attack]].

Saitama is an unemployed {{Salaryman}} turned part-time {{Superhero}} who became so powerful after a 3-year offscreen training arc he can defeat any adversary [[OneHitKill with a single punch]]. [[BlessedWithSuck He also happens to be extremely depressed about this]], as it means he has [[NoChallengeEqualsNoSatisfaction no more challenges left in his life]]. Despite this, Saitama continues to follow his (now utterly monotonous) hero hobby, encountering {{Mutants}}, {{Cyborg}}s, {{Ninja}}s, HumanoidAliens, SupernaturalMartialArts masters, [[PsychicPowers Psychics]], corrupt {{Super Team}}s, {{Kaiju}}, {{Sea Monster}}s and just about [[FantasyKitchenSink everything else you can imagine]]- all the while hoping that, someday, one of them might put up a fight that lasts longer than their MotiveRant.

* MundaneUtility: Genos can use his blasters to dry off dishes.
** His heat sinks are rather good at dispersing heat from a hot-ramen eating contest as well.

* RingRingCRUNCH: In the first episode, Saitama shuts off his alarm clock by casually slapping it with enough force to send it through his floor.

* BaitAndSwitch: The Volume 9 bonus chapter has the Blizzard group try to work in order to get themselves a new car, with Fubuki suggesting to use fliers for money opportunities and the majority of the group getting side jobs that only get them 3.5 million combined. Fubuki comes back with over 2 million alone, describing her getting it as having put her body on the line to do so. Mortified by their leader apparantly resorting to prostitution for the group, the other members vow to make sure she never does it again by working harder... before she reveals that she was out bounty hunting and said fliers she was talking about were wanted posters.

* LastEpisodeThemeReprise: The opening theme plays during Saitama's fight with Boros in the series finale.



* NotQuiteFlight: Saitama can't fly, but as his jump distance is effectively limitless (he can even jump between the earth and moon), he might as well. However, he generally runs to his destinations when he's in a hurry.



* OneWingedAngel: Several monsters have a transformation that they use when someone presents them with a challenge. Generally these make them both more monstrous in appearance([[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman thus less human and easier to justify killing]]) and ''substantially'' more dangerous:
** Mosquito Girls starts out mostly humanoid with various insect features. After absorbing her mosquito swarm, she TurnsRed and retains her human features while the insect ones become more pronounced.
** Carnage Kabuto starts as a combination of a man and a giant rhinoceros beetle. When he enters "carnage mode" his coloration changes from fleshy to green and purple and his face becomes more demonic.
** The Sea King is first seen as a fish man wearing various royal regalia. When it starts to rain, the atmospheric moisture allows him to bulk up, becoming considerably more fishlike.
** Boros is humanoid with alien coloring and one eye. While fighting Saitama he goes through several transformations that each make him larger and more alien in appearance.



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Sonic's reaction to Puri-Puri Prisoner's Angel Mode.

to:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Sonic's ScrewThisImOuttaHere:
** After seeing Saitama's amazing performance in the Hero Association's physical exams, one of the other entrants flatly declares, "I'm going home."

reaction to Puri-Puri Prisoner's Angel Mode.


Added DiffLines:

* TheForceIsStrongWithThisOne: A few characters occasionally show the ability to detect "[[PowerLevels energy levels]]" of powerful beings, allowing them to determine their locations and threat levels. Some, like Genos, use mechanical means of detection, whereas others are completely biological and can still sense it. Almost no one reacts to Saitama's power level, suggesting it might just be too high to detect.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: [[spoiler:Invoked. In the aftermath of the Sea King's fight, we see Saitama getting an entire pile of hate mail from the people he saved... then we flash back to him [[ZeroApprovalGambit deliberately acting]] like a glory-stealing, selfish JerkAss who did a KillSteal on the Sea King to [[DefiedTrope prevent]] a genuine UngratefulBastard from ruining the name of the heroes who tried to stand up to the Seafolk invasion--his hate mail is due to the citizens being pissed off at his apparent scheme, with the people who know it was an act genuinely praising him.]]

to:

* DudeWheresMyRespect: [[spoiler:Invoked. In Despite killing hundreds of monstrosities in his early career, Saitama never got the credit for his actions because he wasn't in the Hero Association. When he does join, his barely-passing score on the written test puts him near the bottom of C-Class. Since no one can believe a C-Class hero is actually capable of such feats, rumors start that he's stealing the credit for other heroes' work,resulting in him getting panned by civilians and fellow heroes alike.
