Saitama is a ridiculously powerful character who only needs one punch/blow to defeat his opponent thus naming his series ‘One Punch Man’. Though, Saitama is indeed invincible in his series many people tend to make him combat with other characters from other series and stories. There are thousands and thousands of lists in the internet with their characters who can defeat Saitama. So why not come up with one of my own, cause why not? So, these are 7 characters who I think can beat Saitama.
7. Satoru Gojo (Jujutsu Kaisen)
This overpowered Jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo is easily one of the most powerful characters who has numerous absolutely powerful techniques and abilities which is just crazy. Saitama would never be able to land a blow on him. Gojo has full control over what touches him and what won’t. There will various infinities between him and Saitama so there won’t be any trouble for defense.
So, Saitama won’t be able to defeat Gojo. There might be debate on whether Gojo would be able to defeat Saitama with his abilities and I would like to believe that Gojo can defeat Saitama.
6. Ryougi Shiki (Kara no Kyoukai)
Ryougi Shiki possesses Mystic Eyes of Death Perception that allows her to see lines of death. She can even cut and break things that may seem indestructible with this ability. She might be vulnerable to attacks from Saitama but if she can get a chance to have even a single strike, she can even kill a god if it’s living.
Saitama can easily defeat Shiki if he wants to but Shiki can defeat Saitama as well if conditions favored her and she can land one strike on him. The list is about the characters that can defeat Saitama so she definitely does pass the criteria. Well, she does have some secrets as well
5. Lelouch vi Britannia (Code Geass)
Lelouch has a Geass which manifest “Power of Absolute Obedience”. Lelouch can mind control anyone with his Geass with direct eye contact and give one order that can’t be denied. The power of Geass is absolute. If Lelouch can have a direct eye contact with Saitama, he can definitely give Saitama one order to ensure his victory. Direct eye contact and one command, that’s all Lelouch needs to defeat Saitama.
4. Gilgamesh (Fate Franchise)
The demi-god, King of Heroes, Gilgamesh is a very powerful character from Fate. The first Hero possesses everything in the world and all the heroic lore are said to have been derived from his. There are a lot of powerful weapons in his collection and his most powerful weapon, the sword of rupture, Ea can do the job for him.
Ea is a weapon that is capable of rupturing space and erasing Reality. Its attack is hard to avoid and once caught in the attack, it can surely defeat you. So with the use of this ultimate weapon, Gilgamesh can surely defeat Saitama.
3. Light Yagami (Death Note)
Light doesn’t stand a chance if he goes one on one against Saitama. But to defeat him, Yagami doesn’t even have to show up in front of him. All he needs to know is Saitama’s name and face. And Light is smart, he can get his hands on that while preventing confrontation with Saitama.
Not only Light but anyone with the possession of Death Note can defeat Saitama. They even have and option to trade with Devil and get Shinigami Eyes to get an upper hand. All they need to do is write Saitama’s name on the note before he does anything and it’s game over. Because it’s well known fact that when your name is written on Death Note, Death is inevitable.
2. Haruhi Suzumiya (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Haruhi may seem like a normal high schooler but she possesses god-like powers. Haruhi Suzumiya hold the power to manipulate the whole universe, reality and everything in existence. She’s basically a god that can do anything. Though she is oblivious of her own power but she can easily erase Saitama out of existence or erase the whole universe and recreate the whole universe without Saitama with just a wish. Obviously, she wouldn’t even realize it but she can beat Saitama.
Accelerator possesses one of the most powerful and unique ability in anime of manipulating Vectors. Which means he can control everything that has direction whether to change its trajectory, or to amplify it or reduce it to null, basically everything that he desires. With this ability, Accelerator would be invincible in front of Saitama’s attack or can even use it against him. Even if it doesn’t do the job, Accelerator himself is capable of defeating Saitama.
Even though the character got nerfed sometime in the series, I think he can still beat Saitama with his ability. He even has a card under his sleeves but I don’t think he needs to go Berserk to defeat Saitama.
