Is Blast stronger than Saitama?

Blast is considered the strongest hero by the Heroes Association in A punch. Fubuki also considers Blast the pinnacle of all heroes since she saw his abilities. Despite this, the character has been a bit of a mystery to the entire fanbase as he hasn’t been explored very well on the show yet.

However, given its importance, it can be expected that A punch will turn attention to him in the future.

Blast has already given readers a glimpse of his power in the current story arc that the manga is adapting. Since then, fans have had many discussions about whether the highest ranked S-class hero is stronger than the Caped Baldy.

The only way to compare these characters is based on the feats they’ve accomplished so far. Since Blast hasn’t really shown his true power, it’s hard to discern a winner. Hence, fans are eagerly awaiting the next set of chapters which will explore Blast in the series.

Here we try to compare Blast and Saitama on a number of metrics.

Blast vs. Saitama: Comparing Two Of The Strongest Characters In A punch

Before diving into this subject, it is important to understand the criteria for choosing the strongest candidate in this comparison. Since raw power is not the best metric to judge his combat abilities, we will consider several aspects such as strength, speed, and power to decide who is the strongest character when comparing Blast with the Caped Baldy.

In one of the previous chapters, Blast tried to intervene and tried to attack Garou with one of his attacks. Not only was Garou unimpressed by this, but he was able to copy Blast’s attack while attacking Saitama, and managed to take it up a notch by implementing Nuclear Fission as well.

This clearly showed that one of Blast’s attacks failed to deal damage to the Hero Hunter after transforming into Cosmic Fear Mode. However, that was not the case with Saitama.

The Caped Baldy was pretty serious in Chapter 167 of A punch. Saitama resorted to some serious punches on Garou and managed to overtake the latter, who was teleporting at the time. Saitama’s Serious Table Flip was so powerful that it shattered the entire surface of one of Jupiter’s moons.

Saitama’s power clearly overwhelmed Garou despite being given powers by an unknown entity called God. Therefore, the A punch The protagonist has clearly shown much more strength compared to Blast.

WHAT THE HELL?! Killer Move: serious series. SERIOUS TABLE FLIP! 😭😭OMG! It’s chilling! A PUNCH MAN. Chapter 167.

Another thing to keep in mind is how this manga was written.

A punch is written in such a way that the rules of the universe do not apply to Saitama. By performing regular endurance exercises, he was able to break Io’s surface. Saitama’s stamina was so high that he did not suffer from the effects of the radiation emitted by Garou.

Blast also has a similar ability where nuclear radiation does not affect it.

OK, so the OPM reddit made me realize something. Originally in this scene I thought Saitama was just following Garou through the portal to punch him. But what REALLY happens is that Saitama is already on the other side of the portal and hits Garou from there.

In conclusion, it is difficult to have a correct comparison just because we lack information about Blast. However, if we were to judge these characters based on their recent activities, there’s no doubt that Saitama is way stronger than Blast.

Fans will have to wait A punch fully explore Blast to understand its true potential.
