* StoryBreakerPower: A DeconstructiveParody. Saitama's life has become incredibly boring from winning all fights easily, but it's PlayedForLaughs. The fact he has little drive to perform his heroics at all is what basically keeps the series going--if he wanted to, he could put ''every villain in the show down for good', and well... there'd ''be'' no show.

Added DiffLines:

* BrutalHonesty: When it comes to dealing with other people, Saitama is as blunt and straightforward as a [[JustForPun punch]] to the face. He does not sugarcoat, show zero delicacy in conversations, and just straight up dishes out a piece of his mind to whoever he actually bother talking with, usually in short consist sentences. Most of the time, those short sentences are more than enough to leave an everlasting impression on those he talks to, even long after he's done with them.

Added DiffLines:

*IShouldHaveBeenBetter: Subjected to this when he tries blasting the meteor, and in the fight against Elder Centipede. The latter has this played UpToEleven to the point where it sends him into a brief HeroicBSoD.

Added DiffLines:

*GoodIsNotSoft: While he's a hero that genuinely cares about saving others, and is generally Adorkable when he's being serious about relatively normal things, Genos is still hostile and cold towards anyone he doesn't particularly care about, even [[spoiler: outright criticizing an H.A. official who comes to him for help on a private mission, saying that he's abusing his power before allowing him to talk about it. He doesn't get along with Flashy Flash either, fighting him when he visits Saitama. And throughout the series, Genos is usually seen threatening others over minor inconveniences, such as Charanko not bringing cabbage for the hotpot.]]


* BoringYetPractical: Compared to other heroes, Saitama has as much flash as toilet paper and hasn't the slightest clue as to how to properly utilize martial arts, but is [[InvincibleHero so]] [[WorldsStrongestMan outrageously strong]] that he literally doesn't ''need'' anything else but to get close to an opponent and turn them to paste with, you guessed it, [[OneHitKO one punch.]] That said, it is ''very'' arguable how "boring" it is to watch him reduce even the biggest and most powerful enemies to LudicrousGibs.

* FunTShirt: His infamous Oppai shirt.


* FatalFlaw: A rare of for an shounen protagonist: {{Sloth}}. It's shown that a lot of Saitama's loneliness and boredom comes from his laziness more so than he's strength. He lives practically like a hermit in an abandoned area of town and he's unmotivated to find a challenge outside of combat to engage himself in. His other flaw is more common: {{Wrath}}. When he does find something that legimately challenges him, he often gets very angry. So much so that he once almost killed Bang over a game Bang had challenged him to. His opponents tend to not take him seriously up until he gibs them, when he gets mad at them, every villain panics when they see his NightmareFace.

* AchievementsInIgnorance: Saitama 100% honestly believes that his absolutely insane levels of strength, speed, and durability came from his daily basic training regimen. Everybody incredulously points out it's physically impossible for a normal human to get that strong even if they trained all the time for the rest of their lives.

** He also defeats [[HeroKiller Garou]] in one hit. While this isn't that surprising, the kicker is that Saitama ''didn't even know he was fighting him''. He believed Garou was just a guy trying to mug him.


* UnderestimatingBadassery: Saitama is a frequent victim of this from the Hero Association, the public and the monsters themselves. The monsters just dismiss him as some small fry and attack him, only to get brutally killed by in a nonchalant manner by Saitama. The only antagonist who took Saitama seriously was Lord Boros.

* HiddenHeartOfGold: He does not care too much about getting recognition for his deeds, since he does not really put a lot of effort into what he does anyways. But he does want other heroes, those who do risk their lives to save innocents, to be respected. And to achieve that, he will sometimes paint himself in a bad light for them to look better.

* UndyingLoyalty: No matter the choices Saitama makes or how he acts, he will always be loyal to him, have his back when he needs it, and won't be afraid to stand up for him. After Saitama defeats the Sea King and puts up a JerkassFacade to ensure that the other heroes get recognition, he has this inner monologue.

* ExperiencedProtagonist: He starts the webcomic with his renowned strength, endurance, and agility. And he explains to Genos in the House of Evolution that he became that strong via an absurd training schedule.

* CelibateHero: Despite his trusty Oppai sweater Saitama is never shown commenting on women or interested in hooking up with someone, his desire for recognition is never linked to wanting to be noticed by fangirls or anything of sorts (although he got a little annoyed he heard Genos has fangirls of his own); later when Fubuki starts trying to pester him to join her group, Saitama is completely indifferent to her, as the Murata manga makes a point to have a few onlookers saying Fubuki is a gorgeous woman, and often thinks of her intruding attempts as irritating.
