How fast is Saitama? – We have this cover

Saitama from One-punch man is generally considered to be one of the most powerful OP characters in history. From his unimaginable strength to his incredible speed, Saitama has broken many records for his superhuman abilities. He proved to be faster than Speed-O-Sonic ⏤ the extremely fast ninja who can move above hypersonic speeds ⏤ and even caused his cyborg apprentice Genos to lose track of him when they fought together. Until now, no one has ever really measured how fast it can go.

The bald fighter has shown impressive feats of speed and reflexes throughout the series that are unparalleled even for a Super Saiyan. He completed a 1500 meter sprint in an instant. Saitama even ran into a building to save a piece of salmon that had fallen from his lunch and managed to climb back up the same building without anyone noticing. He even dodged S-Class Hero Flashy Flash’s sword strikes and beat Speed-O-Sonic’s sword with such speed that even the Hypersonic Assassin couldn’t see when it happened. Clearly Saitama can move above hypersonic. But how fast exactly is Saitama?

There are theories. According to the Spoiler Guy, the final battle of the first season of One-punch man can be used as a great stage to gauge Saitama’s top speed. In the fight sequence, Saitama and the alien Boros fight an all-out brawl which sends Saitama to the moon.

In the next moment, Saitama jumps off the moon and lands on Earth within seconds. Looking at the moment, you might assume that it took Saitama 1.5 seconds to reach Earth. If you check Google, you will find that the distance between the Earth and the Moon is 384,400 km, or 238,855 miles per hour. So if Saitama covered the distance of 384,400 km in 1.5 seconds, that means he was moving at a speed of 256,266 km (159,236 mph). It’s not quite the speed of light, but it’s ridiculously fast.

So how fast is Saitama?

If we follow these calculations, then Saitama can move at top speeds of 159.236 mph. However, this is not necessarily Saitama’s true speed. It’s very possible he could move even faster than that, but he’s yet to come across a villain who’s really pushed him to his limits. I hope we get a clearer picture of At Saitama’s true abilities when One-punch man finally returns to Hulu for the third season.
