Saitama can now ‘hit’ Ultra Instinct Goku, theoretically
The release of A punch Chapter 168 provided a great insight into Saitama’s Limit Breaker and how this ability actually works in the series. The chapter was a turning point in understanding the series’ protagonist and the kind of power he wields.
When he last met, fans could see how Saitama and Garou were able to grow at an exponential rate as they fought against each other.
While Garou was initially shown to be the one with the upper hand, Saitama’s limit breaker kicked in and the A punch protagonist quickly managed to turn the tide. At the end of the encounter, he was also able to learn Garou’s Zero Causality Fist, one of the series’ great moves.
He is so strong that many fans in the community believe that the power will be able to bring down even the strongest characters from other anime franchises. Some even go so far as to suggest that with this ability, Saitama will not only be able to hit Goku with dragonballbut hit him when he’s in his Ultra Instinct form.

As the battle between Garou and Saitama continued, fans got to see how the two, now cosmic beings, could grow exponentially stronger as they traded blows. When it looked like Garou was sure to win, the series protagonist quickly turned the fight in his favor with his limit breaker, allowing him to have unlimited potential.
By this logic, Saitama looks a lot like a Saiyan, and the more he pushes himself physically, the bigger he will grow. His strength will expand to Infinitum if he engages in battles repeatedly, which is clearly shown in the fight with Garou.
At the end of the encounter, Garou realized Saitama’s potential and even came to repent of his actions when he saw that the child he wanted to protect lay injured. To right his wrongs, Garou taught Saitama his Zero Causality Punch and told him to go back in time and stop him.
Saitama did as requested and used his new ability to knock Garou out. And even though God tried to stop him, he managed to change the course of the timeline.
With the Zero Causality Punch, One Punch Man’s Saitama now has the fastest and most powerful ability in the series. He was able to acquire this ability in a relatively short time, and many believe that this punch can even have a drastic effect on an Ultra Instinct Goku who, at the end of Dragon Ball Super, was able to dodge anything Jiren threw at him.
Through Great narrative, Goku reached a point where he was able to perform fantastic techniques with speed. There even came a time when he was able to block Hit’s Time-Skip ability, which went overboard again in his last encounter with Jiren.
While Goku broke all speed barriers at the end of Great, it is likely that One Punch Man’s Saitama will be able to follow him after the extraordinary growth he had when he met Garou.
Now, with Zero Causality Punch at his disposal, Saitama can deliver a blow to Ultra Instinct Goku, and while it may be difficult to defeat the Saiyan with this single blow, the fight between the two beings will be something to behold.
