Saitama’s strength and endurance have always been a topic of discussion among A punch Fans. To this day, fans aren’t able to fathom the logic behind Caped Baldy’s ridiculous strength. Saitama has participated in many battles and has always emerged victorious. There wasn’t a single character that even came close to beating him.

Let’s take a look at some of the toughest opponents he’s faced to give us an idea of whether or not he was injured during One punch man.

A punch : Has any being managed to hurt Saitama in the show?
Fight against Boros
There is no doubt that Saitama is one of the strongest, if not the most robust characters in A punch. One fight that could have potentially hurt Saitama was the one against Boros.
Boros didn’t hold back in this fight and was strong enough to knock Saitama to the moon. It would have hurt any ordinary human being, but Saitama didn’t even flinch. In fact, he was surprised to end up on the moon and returned to Earth to fight Boros. Many fans believe that Boros managed to hurt him because Caped Baldy’s clothes looked ragged and damaged.
However, this cannot be taken as an indication that Saitama is in pain. He was as usual and looked quite expressionless. If Saitama had been injured, he would have reacted to one of Boros’ blows and expressed his pain. Saitama finally defeated Boros in A punch and did it quite comfortably.
Fight against Garou
There is another character who was far stronger than any monster Saitama has faced. Garou was an exceptional fighter, to begin with. But his powers were enhanced after the monstrosity process, and it didn’t stop there.
Garou had god powers that allowed him to understand the flow of all energies and forces. He was able to copy moves that people like Bang took years to master in seconds. He also managed to implement nuclear fission in these attacks.
His attacks seemed to do nothing to Saitama, and the Caped Baldy completely overwhelmed the Hero Hunter. The latter gave up and taught Saitama how to time travel to save others from his misdeeds. But there is a moment in the manga that shows Saitama getting hurt.
Saitama vs Cat
A punch is a gag manga series, and the Caped Baldy was injured in the most bizarre way. A cat scratched Saitama and he screamed in pain. Technically, he was injured by a catand the community jokes that Boros couldn’t do much about something as harmless as a cat.
However, it’s essential to note that Saitama might not have reacted the same way had he been serious. This is a typical example of how a gag manga series finds the most bizarre way to hurt a character who emerged unscathed against some of the toughest villains this series has produced.
