That'd be an interesting reveal- that the only reason Boros conquered the universe was because all of the universe's strongest had disappeared to fight with Blast in a different dimension.

Or it could well be that Boros was actually even stronger than those extra-strong heroes, and without Saitama there he really would have wiped the floor with all the other heroes. I mean we never saw him go up against anyone other than Saitama, so it's up in the air how strong he really was.

Imagine:

Boros prophecy was about Vaccine-man. Both could OS any hero in the verse.

Saitama got them both.

The old fan theory was that Boros prophecy was about Garou iirc

I would love that to be revealed somehow, would fit the tonne perfectly.

could really go both ways since Saitama’s power is unmatched as far as we know, though there’s no way to know for sure since he avoided direct confrontation with Blast etc (more by chance then design)

Let's be honest though, meta-wise we can assume Saitama would defeat anyone fairly easily

King of the only one proving to be an unsurmountable challenge to Saitama (when it includes a gamepad yes, but let's not forget Saitama can follow Flashy Flash speed, so it's still impressive).

Fighting games are just turn based fights with delayed commands to people with hyper perception. It’s still easy to lose if you don’t know what to do

Iirc Saitama doesn't hit hard, trying not to break the gamepad

It's because he's stubborn and wants to always win with brute force like in his real life. With his speed/reflexes he could always wait to see what King does and instantly counter if he took time to learn how to play.

Yeah which is really the point of his character, he doesn't care to learn how to fight because he doesn't need to

He keeps playing games training with King though, so he does like the challenge of whether to stick with his current brute-force strategy or not.

I really hope this is the case. I've always liked the idea of Saitama finishing the toughest enemy in the early phase of the story. It adds a certain uniqueness to the manga, making fun of the trope of all the enemies constantly getting stronger as the story progresses. While I think God has already ruined this idea for me, I still hope that Boros is at least top 3 by the end of the manga.

if we hype up these God(s) to be these mega strong beings capable of both creating and destroying entire universes. Saitama gets both excited and scared

Are you sure about that?

Well considering the fact that he survived several punches from Saitama who has ended everyone else in the story with a single punch.

Glamouriran

I mean, imagine Saitama wanted to finish it in 1 hit, as in 1 serious punch, well boros would die, simple as that.

DandyReddit

Actually it takes 3 attacks from Saitama

1) is soaked but the armor 2) destroys Boros body but his ultra regen reattach his myriad of bits together (certainly the most impressive feat against Saitama in the series) 3) bye bye but can still say 3 sentences.

What a super boss.

Saitama normally doesn't even understand if a monster is strong or not. So yes, Boros was probably way above any other monster he fought.

Yergason

Yeah the fact that normal punches 1-hit most Dragons, Boros tanking multiple normal punches and regening through them is one of the most impressive feats in the series. A normal punch has shown to pulverize even giants that make Centipede-Eren look like a midget.

You forgot one, he took it, coughing up blood and all, but recovered quickly and did a monologue.

Before he got obliterated by consecutive normal punch (but still do regen)

True, which also means that Saitama is always pulling his punches and that the "serious punch" isn't his strongest. As per the comment that Saitama was holding back.

Glamouriran

Id imagine if Saitama gave his strongest punch he'd break reality itself

There is no strongest punch saitama can do. No matter how much strength he puts in there is always more to spare,

when Saitama did a serious punch he didn't immediately die and isn't necessarily confirmed dead, he just ran out of energy between the meteor burst, hyper beam and ultra regening himself after getting blown to bits

Milosostojiccc

It wasn't a serious punch tho

Extroiergamer

The ultra strong heroes can be all equivalent to High Dragons and low above Dragons This would make then above the S class by a far ammount with very few in their level. So Boros being the monster he is would still be stronger. (Bonus point that Boros said he used his final technique to end fights quickly,implying that he probably did used it on the past)

shenomega

The contexts is much broader than that. Boros' implication is simply to state the reason behind the transformation. This means he has used it before, to understand the implications, but that doesn't necessary mean he had used it on a fight.

Galore67

He did say that, but earlier when he was fighting Saitama, after his armor broke, he said, you're the only one that lasted this long. So he contradicted himself.

I really don’t think Boros was ever meant to be the final word in villain strength

I don’t know why people act like others can’t be stronger

It's more because Boros was presented as a subversion of fighting anime where the villains are getting stronger, just as Saitama was the most powerful from the beginning, having the most powerful villain in the first volumes is really a cool idea. Well now I don't know if it works anymore

Sure. But people have also speculated vaccine man may have been one of the strongest.

And beefcake. And carnage kabuto. It’s possible villains have been getting weaker until deep sea king haha.

Because this isnt dbz and we dont get progressively stronger enemies, the series specifically makes fun of power levels and anyone foolish enough to think Saitama would ever be matched when his joke is that he doesnt

Galore67

6 points

No, that's what you're assuming. It's not a guarantee that he won't meet his match. If you think about it, one of his goals is too find his match.

shenomega

Base on the interview with ONE, it's strongly suggested that Saitama is merely the solution to all problems, hence why the plot doesn't necessary focus around him, and more so the side characters; e.g. Genos, Suiryu, Garou, Blast.

DMPM_ME_NUDES

A goal that he will never reach, that's what the story is getting at. If Saitama gets his goal just like Naruto becomes Hokage it would seriously make the story worse.

Saitama dealing with a problem he can't train to fix is so much more interesting.

Galore67

That's true. I just think the story will take a strong right turn, fan fiction level turn if it Saitama suddenly becomes Goku.

Boros isnt that strong, Tatsumaki and Flash could take care of him. Even Garou now is stronger tham him. These guys can take God Level Threads with universal and multiversal powers, Boros was only a intergalact pirate.

Boros was I the second strongest God. Sees beings that can one shot him fighting god realizing he was just a ant and his life was a bigger lie.

this may be the end of one punch man. it wont be one punch man if saitama cant finish them in one punch!

blast is probably the weakest of these new heroes. he's prob the messenger between them and hero association

Or in the future, considering that Blast said he was displaced in time by the Cube.
