- Because of this, Saitama has found his strength boring and is always trying to find more powerful opponents who can match him. In his adventures he meets new friends, enemies and his own disciple, the cyborg Genos, and joins the Hero Association to gain fame for all his actions in preventing evil.
- Despite defeating many powerful enemies that the main heroes, even those from the Hero Association, are unable to defeat, Saitama is unable to get recognition for his actions in general. Most people discriminate against him because of his normal physical appearance and some accuse him of being a fake hero. Only a small number of individuals recognize his incredible talent and humility towards others.
