Since its release in October 2015, the One Puch Man anime has been winning the hearts of otaku all over the world. The story is full of interesting characters with impressive supernatural powers and their own journeys that captivate the viewer from the very first episode.

In today's article we're going to list the 11 main characters in One Punch-Man, focusing on their level of strength and relevance to the work, from the least strong to the most powerful. Can you guess who will top this list?

Mumen Rider

Although he's not the strongest of the main characters in One Punch-Man, Mumen Rider stands out for his determination. He's a C-class hero who patrols the streets on his bicycle and is an incredible cyclist.

The character never runs from a fight and is always ready to defend those who need it, even if they are at a disadvantage. He is the best of the amateur heroes, even though he has no real powers. What's more, he was one of the few who witnessed the extent of Saitama's powers on several occasions, understanding just how strong the protagonist is.

Fubuki

Fubuki's incredible abilities make her one of One Punch-Man's strongest main characters. She can manipulate the air and is Tatsumaki's younger sister. The two together are known as "The Psychic Sisters".

She is also the leader of the Blizzard group of heroes and holds class B and rank 1 in the Association of Professional Heroes. Although her powers are strong, Fubuki is very protected by her older sister.

Sonic Speed

Sonic is one of the first characters we are introduced to in the game. He is one of the main characters in One Punch-Man and often appears in search of a confrontation with the protagonist.

His powers, as his name suggests, involve sonic speed and his style and appearance are those of a ninja. He got into a fight with Saitama for the first time because of a misunderstanding and since then he's been out for revenge for being defeated. Despite all this, Sonic is not a bad person, just rather hard-headed.

Puri-Puri Prisoner

Puri-Puri Prisoner is one of One Punch-Man's most beloved main characters. He is known for his muscular appearance and his sweet, affectionate way with everyone.

His abilities include super strength and his own fighting style known as "Fallen Angel". The character also shows a very strong sense of justice, winning everyone over with his endearing personality, almost always standing out among the other characters in the series.

Vaccine Man

Although it sounds like a lot, this isn't Vegeta from Dragon Ball, but another of the main characters in One Punch-Man. He is presented as the first real villain to appear in the series and face off against Saitama.

His abilities are all based on elements of nature and his appearance is that of a giant monster with two antennae coming out of its forehead. His aim is to punish humanity for destroying nature so that he can protect it from human irresponsibility.

Dr. Genus

Dr. Genus' ability makes his intellect the greatest among the main characters in One Punch-Man. Due to his experiments, the scientist has the appearance of a young man, but his age is much more than meets the eye.

He is the founder and former head of the now-defunct House of Evolution, a building that served as a base for his studies on achieving human perfection through artificial evolution. Today, the House of Evolution has been destroyed, but Dr. Genus has managed to become known worldwide as a scientist.

Genos

Genos is one of the most popular characters in One Punch Man. He is a powerful cyborg who is always looking to become more skilled and adopted Saitama as his master after witnessing a demonstration of his superhuman strength.

He decides to move in with Saitama, living with him to learn from his lifestyle. His personality is very serious and he is determined to become the strongest hero to save the earth and avenge his family. In the Heroes Association, he is class S and is known to many as "the Cyborg Demon".

Garou

Despite being only human, Garou is one of One Punch-Man's strongest and most feared main characters. He is a villain with a fixation for monsters and calls himself a "Hero Hunter".

The boy is a prodigy when it comes to martial arts and was a disciple of the character Bang. However, he ended up being expelled from the dojo because he was the cause of a huge mess there. Members of the Heroes Association consider him a serious threat to the organization and also to the Monsters Association.

Tatsumaki

Tatsumaki is one of the most powerful of One Punch-Man's main characters, but all this power has come with a side effect: she is trapped in a child's body forever, even though she is already 28 years old. Her abilities include telekinesis (which allows her to move objects with her thoughts) and she is capable of destroying entire cities, such is her power.

Her personality is that of a willful person who hates being the butt of jokes from Saitama and Genos, who treat her like a "brat". She also only goes into combat if she decides to do so, which is an extra headache for the Heroes' Association, which is trying its best to keep her in line. She holds the S class and rank 2 in the association and is extremely protective of her younger sister, Fubuki, whom she also considers to be her pupil. Together, the two are known as "the Psychic Sisters".

Boros

Boros is one of One Punch-Man's greatest antagonists and main characters. His power was universally known as one of the strongest. He was called Lord Boros by his subordinates and led the Dark Matter Thieves group, made up of aliens and responsible for the destruction of A-City.

Like Saitama, Boros went through a period of existential crisis and evolved into the most powerful being in the universe. As a result, no fight thrilled him any more and he jumped from planet to planet in search of a worthy opponent. This search led him to Earth, where he ran into Saitama, who eliminated him forever.

Saitama

Of all the characters in One Punch Man, Saitama is the strongest. Not just because he has the power of protagonism on his side, but also because of his enhanced abilities that prevent any fight he gets into from lasting more than a single punch from him.

He trained intensively for three years after saving a child in order to become a recognized hero. His physical effort even caused his hair to fall out, but it paid off as he became the strongest person on Earth. Like Boros, Saitama is bored by the ease with which he defeats his opponents, which provokes several moments of reflection.

Which of One Punch-Man's main characters is the strongest?

Even though his humility leaves him out of the highest ranks of the Heroes Association, there is no doubt that Saitama is the strongest of the main characters in One Punch-Man. He has managed to save the Earth more than once and is a source of inspiration for many other One Punch-Man characters who have witnessed the enormous extent of his powers.

Even so, Saitama insists that he is only a hero as a hobby and avoids reaping the glory deserved by his historic feats, such as his fight against Boros. But apart from Saitama, which character is the strongest in your opinion? Let us know in the comments! Also check out the 11 best dubbed anime you need to watch!
