Warning: One-Punch Man Chapter #190 (JP) Content RevealedOne-Punch Man has offered several theories as to why Saitama is so unbelievably powerful, but there seems to be only one reliable enough theory in the story: breaking the bounds. Now, the S-Class hero Zombieman is about to test this theory for himself to become a power on par with Caped Baldy.
In chapter #190 of One-Punch Man, Zombieman visits Dr. Genus, the old brain behind Evolution House, a villainous enterprise dedicated to creating superior life forms through evil experiments, from scratch. story. Zombieman is related to Dr. Genus, who was somehow involved in his creation, and the two have had conversations before, specifically about the existence of “limiters.” and whether they can be removed. After witnessing Saitama’s unbelievable strength, Genus believes that the hero has somehow removed the natural limits that all living things have, and Zombieman recently came to the same conclusion. After talking with the Child Emperor, Zombieman decided that he needed to find a way to remove his own limitations, in order to use Saitama’s powers and become a better hero.
Removing a Limiter like Saitama is possible, but how?
In One-Punch Man, “Limit” is an integrated restriction on the development of all sentient beings. As discussed in chapter #89, the limiter essentially puts a limit on how powerful an organism can become, and once a person reaches his or her limit, there is no way around. another to become stronger. Becoming a monster will not remove one’s limit but simply increase it, as Garou demonstrated after transforming. One can push past one’s limits and experience unlimited growth, as Saitama did, but exactly how to achieve that is unclear. For Saitama, it seems that intensive training and effort has allowed him to push his limits, but is it really that simple?
In addition to Saitama, limit theory was also put to the test by Garou, as Psykos was also aware of the idea of limits. For Garou, breaking his own limits meant being close to death many times, only to bounce back stronger than ever. In fact, during his “training” period, Saitama also had to fight daily against monsters much stronger than him. This suggests that removing the limit can happen in life-and-death situations, which could pose a problem for Zombieman, who can’t actually die, as his only power is the ability to die. infinite regeneration. Without the risk of death, he might not be able to reproduce this particular limit-breaking vehicle. Dr. Genus clearly has his own ideas about breaking the boundaries and he’s about to test them out on Zombieman, possibly in terrible style.
Will One-Punch Man soon have another hero on Saitama’s level?
Interestingly, Dr. Genus describes the limit placed there by God Himself. Since Saitama is considered “the loathed fist that has turned against God”, the name may actually refer to the fact that he broke his limits, experiencing an exponential growth in strength that he could not see. God was never for him. It’s worth noting that the results of Genus’ upcoming experiments on Zombieman have also not been shown in the webcomic, so there’s really no way of knowing how this will end. It will be interesting to see if Zombieman can break his bounds and regardless of the outcome, this could provide some insight into the secret of Saitama’s power in the game. One-Punch Man.
