He becomes a reluctant mentor vĩ đại Genos, a cyborg seeking revenge against another cyborg who killed his family and destroyed his hometown, after Saitama defeats a monster that defeated Genos.

But inside One-Punch Man's universe, I made Saitama a sort of guy who was capable of adapting his life vĩ đại the world that surrounded him, only armed with his immense power. The only obstacles he faces are mundane things, lượt thích running short of money."[2]

The idea was that the super hero became bored and instead dealt with daily chores.[3] In One's point of view, a hero is not cool for being strong or strength. Instead, it is the mentality of Saitama and how he is able vĩ đại understand other people's mentalities.[2] The idea was that the super hero became bored and instead dealt with daily chores.[3] One felt difficulties in drawing scenarios for Saitama due vĩ đại how overpowered he was. In Saitama's case, all he have vĩ đại bởi is have him show up vĩ đại punch the problem away. In the world Saitama lives in, monsters show up frequently, so sánh he gets vĩ đại utilize his strength vĩ đại the fullest, so sánh he can feel comfortable making the plot. If anything happens, the author can always count on Saitama. The story will be interesting as long as he's on the move. The only hard part is vĩ đại make his allies seem not too weak.[3]

Artist Yusuke Murata initially drew him "cool" alongside the entire cast. In that process he was making Saitama look handsome, or adding stars in his eyes, but all of these ideas were scrapped. In the kết thúc, those things did not fit Saitama's nature. He changed it since One's ideas of Saitama was the complete opposite. Nevertheless, he had fun when drawing the character.[3] The idea of the blank expression Saitama tends vĩ đại make were done intentionally for comedic effect. Murata also elaborated that while it is hard vĩ đại relate vĩ đại overpowered characters in fiction, the way One wrote Saitama managed vĩ đại give this theme.[3]

He felt that the story, in which each episode is completed in a short number of episodes, and that Saitama always finishes with a quick blow vĩ đại defeat the enemy at the kết thúc, is simple yet very interesting. Additionally, his first impression of Saitama was so sánh strong that he was worried about whether he would be able vĩ đại play it. He was surprised that he was really the strongest hero because the gap between his daily life and fighting was appealing.[7] Furukawa called him "complex" due vĩ đại his lack of motivation and not being attentive enough while his chores are part of what make him charm which made him relatable.[8] The actor explained that Saitama has two different tone based on the scenes he is involved making him both cool and uncool.[9]
