So I felt like asking this and enjoying a good debate since I don't really have the most extensive knowledge of... well, anything, if I compare myself to you guys.So the title already holds the question but I want to set some rules:Any fictional character, may it be from comics, cartoons, anime, videogames, manga, books, movies, folkloric tales, myths, etc. You can even mention your own character in a game or something, but make sure you give you reason for it. (Read rule 4).No gods or all-mighty characters like Zeus or those guys in the Marvel comics that live in space and are just stronger than everyone else. Any characters that have become gods through their plot are also off the table, unless you consider their... "mortal" version. You should be smart enough to know what I mean, don't try to make a whole "but this guy isn't technically a god because..."No Superman, unless you can prove why someone is stronger than him (which means you wouldn't mention him anyways). He's just the most OP character I know of, since his power has literally no limits.I'd like to see good arguments as to why you mention them. That means @Bardock can't just post "Bardock, 'cuz I say so".No reality warpers. Totally not thinking about what Kiyza would post. Those are just a way to get past the second rule.New rule (edited in): Gilgamesh is forbidden too. I don't want spoilers and I expect Nia can mention him. Besides, from what he's told me, he can be as strong as Superman if not stronger.Hope I didn't miss any rules that makes this just too easy for @Kiyza or @Nia. Have fun now.That is all, let the walls of text run free and break the forums.
I'm gonna have to go with Saitama as well, and before you freak out about him being unstoppable, hear me out. The point of Saitama is not that he can't be beaten...it's that nothing has beaten him yet. It's entirely possible somewhere down the line, probably near the end of the series, that he might meet someone stronger. It's his goal after all, to meet someone stronger. Therefore, he's not really all-mighty since there is potential of him being beaten. After all, even Saitama can't punch the universe.As for why Saitama in particular, there's multiple reasons. For one, in comparison to everyone else thus far in his universe, he's miles above. Unlike DBZ, where the most of main characters have greater strength than the franchise's weaker Gods, Saitama is so far the only one with just as much power as he does. While it is possible he could be beaten, so far none of the characters have even come close, and we've seen Rank S heroes, the greatest of humanity's forces. Even if a foe were to arise, Saitama would still be miles above even the strongest of humanity.Second, as for his actual power. While he technically hasn't done that much, we know a few instances of his capability. He can leap from the moon to Earth (including gravity) in a single jump, he can blow a massive hole through a mountain in a single punch, the shockwaves of his "Serious style" punches can part the clouds globe-wide, and so far he hasn't even come close to ever going "all-out".
1.

I'm sure sooner or later, someone is going to mention this, so I'll just say it right now.Saitama, from One Punch Man, is the strongest fictional character I know.
If we're including joke characters, Saitama has done nothing that Squirrel Girl hasn't done better. She's also the best choice that fits all of your arbitrary criteria. There's no way to objectively definite "reality warping" (you can't really have an operational definition of it beyond "this violates physical laws", and most works of fiction do that in spades) and excluding characters because they're deities or spacebound is just drawing lines in the sand.Also, I've said time and time again that Superman isn't that strong. If you just want a quick "Who can beat Superman?" list, the Martian Manhunter is still my go-to answer.
No, Squirrel Girl hasn't punched a hole in a mountain. She hasn't jumped from the moon, moving at many times faster then the speed of light. (12,666,666.667 m/s is roughly how fast he was moving) She hasn't fought the leader of a gang who has went on undefeated. Squirrel Girl is a joke, Saitama is a gag.
Also, I thought we were going for serious responses? Half of these posts are joke responses.
Squirrel Girl doesn't need to do any of that because she's beaten Thanos with the power of squirrels.Because Tofu said I can't shitpost muh ghost.Also, Saitama is a joke answer and you're just perpetuating it. May as well say Popeye after eating a can of spinach at that point.
This forums is full of jokes loosen up a bit,no need to be all serious
It's not a joke answer, I'm serious. I gave valid reasons behind it too, just as the OP asked. You simply gave a couple sentences, then talked about reality warping. So, excuse me if I mistook that as a joke, I sincerely thought it was, and still think it is.If you can prove to us using sources, statements, anything that Popeye is the most OP character in fiction, within these given rules, then go for it.
I was just hoping for a bit of educated answers is all, not forcing anyone to do anything.
It's half joke and it's half serious. Squirrel Girl has absolutely done things more impressive than Saitama, by merit of defeating some of the Marvel universe's upper tiers, like the aforementioned Thanos. She's also a joke character, just like Saitama. The thing is, people realize that Squirrel Girl is a joke and the One Punch Man fandom has this divide between people who are "in on the joke" (i.e. he can defeat anyone in one punch and people crack jokes about it) and people who take it too seriously ("OMG Saitama really can beat anyone! Suck it Goku and Superman!). These can be hard to distinguish because sarcasm doesn't translate well on the internet and Poe's law is relevant, as always.If punching a hole through a mountain and jumping to the moon is the best Saitama can do, then he'd get miserably wrecked by the entire cast of Guilty Gear because the weakest character in the series' narrative by a long shot can do that.I'm gonna take the notion that you have numbers for Saitama's speed with a fistful of salt, because while the distance between the Earth and moon is basically a constant, it's kind of hard to get an objective time frame from a comic unless it's directly stated, which manga basically never does. If you can prove it and you have the math, show me the money.I could start naming names of characters who are ridiculous and fit all of those criteria, yeah, but being too serious with this kind of thread will always suck the life out of it. I fear this will be the beginning of a "nuclear arms race", and if it comes to that, I'm out. I don't care to argue about power levels.
I'm sure sooner or later, someone is going to mention this, so I'll just say it right now.Saitama, from One Punch Man, is the strongest fictional character I know.I really don't see anyone arguing with Saitama being the strongest. Hell, I'd even say he has the potential to kill even the likes of Superman, with a single punch, as he has done a multitude of times to other people across both the manga, and the anime. For those of you who don't know, Saitama was an average human, who decided to become the strongest hero alive, simply for the fun of it.Let me go over some of the most impressive feats for you:1. Imagine an alternate universe Japan in distress, from the legendary Sea King, who has already killed and slaughtered a large amount of the hero organization, a group akin to a larger Justice League. He is rampaging the city, nothing stopping him, in one of his strongest forms due to the rain, but all of a sudden, Saitama shows up out of nowhere. He simply punches the Sea King to death, but claimed he just "finished him off" and the other heroes did all of the work, which is total bs if you've seen the episode.2. A meteor was on a collision course for Earth, and plenty of heroes are using their arsenal to stop it, however, nothing is effective. I'm talking insane amounts of nuclear weaponry, rockets, everything anyone could throw. You know it's coming, Saitama leaps off the ground enough to start a mini-earthquake, before throwing his fist at the meteor, destroying it.3. Saitama fought Lord Borus, leader of the Dark Matter Thieves. This guy can be comparable to Beerus, and I'm even sure he's a parody of him. Boros has gone undefeated, before it is revealed to him through prophecy, that he will die to an earthling, Saitama. (See the resemblance? Both Beerus and Boros have a prophecy regarding someone strong.) So, Boros goes down, uses everything he has, including his signature Meteoric Blast, something he only uses when he gets desperate, as it drains his life force. Saitama uses his Serious Punch, punches the air, creating a global shockwave enough to counter and deflect the attack. He did not make contact, YET countered the attack. Imagine if he landed his Serious Punch. Borus later dies, and before he does, he says he know that Saitama was clearly holding back, and that he thanks him for the fight.Saitama is a human, not a god. He does not warp reality either, so he should be accepted into the roster. He could easily take Gilgamesh and Superman, dodging both of their attacks before ending them with a single punch.
I don't think Saitama is completely a joke, but I don't think he's completely serious either. I think that there's a middle ground we need to find. That's just me, though...Oi, Boros could be compared to Beerus, but I don't think they're that much alike. First off, he looks like Goku and Frieza had a baby. He acts like Goku and Frieza had a baby. So, I would much rather say it's Frieza and Goku combined, or a Saiyan. He even used that eye thing like a scouter. I also don't think Saitama could take Superman down in a single punch. Ya' might wanna tone it down a bit...
That Freiza part made me LOL so hard. Yeah, in my opinion, he can take down Superman with a single Serious Punch. If it were to actually connect, there would definitely be a dead Superman.
and here we are again fanboys of one punch man who keeps defending the obvious that is a stupid lame ass boring ass character that was written for being too OP because the writer was too lazy to write a good character also superman yes i admit he is op but still doomsday,darkseid have put a hell of a fight againts him the problem here is that saitama can defeat any enemy there is no point of doing more enemies because he can defeat them easily and about strongest fictional its hard to tell mate if they were all connected i will choose none of them mainly because I'm too old for this shit.
i will choose none of them mainly because I'm too old for this shit.
Bugs Bunny, he basically just states what something is or how something works and that's the way it is. Here is a made up example, Superman is fighting Bugs Bunny, Superman says " Your going down!" and Bugs Bunny says " You are" Bugs Bunny then flips a switch that is dangling in mid air that reads. " Kryptonite" and Kryptonite rains down on superman 3 feet above his head.
...You're "too old" for "this shit" and yet you post here without reason, simply complaining about OPM fanboys? Would you mind explaining your logic?demn fan girl i bet you have your entire room covered with one punch man merchandise dont worry i got your secret coveredhe is right no one cant defeat bugs bunny holy demn give these man a nobel prize already
No, I'm being serious about a character who is supposed to be a gag. I find it rather enjoyable. And just because there is a divide, it doesn't mean people can't go back and forth through said divide.First and foremost, Squirrel Girl did not properly defeat Thanos. The popular image was only featured in GLX-MAS #1, a special holiday issue. The stories included are meant as parodies, and are not canon. I'm sure you didn't know that, because otherwise you wouldn't have brought it up. So, no, Squirrel Girl did not defeat Thanos within a canon universe.
Honestly, Saitama's max speed was calculated within an event that occurred in the manga/anime. Check it out.http://www.narutoforums.com/blog.php?b=22493http://www.narutoforums.com/showpost.php?p=50941164&postcount=66If you go over the calculations, I'm sure you'll agree with his outcome. While alot of estimation is involved, at minimum he'd still be moving at speeds beyond human processing. As for the punching a hole in the mountain, that wasn't to be taken as his strongest. Heck, we haven't even seen his Serious Punch actually connect with anything, as he always pulls out right before. But from swinging his fist itself, it has enough power to part clouds on a global scale, as said before.Go ahead and start naming characters.
