Fans of One Punch Man have long realized that there are many similarities between these two hostile opponents. With Garo’s dizzying transformations and exponential growth in strength, fans have questioned whether Hero Hunter will one day be able to match Saitama in terms of strength. Let’s take a look at the two’s previous encounters to see if Garo still has untapped potential.
Garo has attacked Saitama before, although none of those attacks actually caused the hero any damage. Saitama also has not spent too much effort against Hero Hunter, that’s why they constantly have rematches that make readers extremely excited.
Garo hinders Saitama from buying wigs
After learning he could receive a cash prize, Saitama agreed to enter the martial arts competition on Charanko’s behalf. Then he needed a wig to make it easier to disguise. Garo was walking in the entertainment district when he caught sight of a Hero Association member bragging about his status to the girls. When this guy offered to introduce the girls to Sweet Mask, Garo appeared and knocked him down. That was also when Saitama encountered Garo.
Saitama commented on finding the right person after searching everywhere, this stammering statement made Garo think Saitama was referring to him. Thinking that Saitama was keeping an eye on him, Hero Hunter took action first. The attack was powerful enough to knock Saitama to the ground – but annoyed by the shopping interruption, Saitama responded with the same attack and knocking Garo down on the spot.
Garo tries to attack the strongest man
Saitama and Garo’s second encounter is when the bald hero tries to protect King from Hero Hunter’s attack. At that time, Saitama discussed with King about the accidents he had encountered as well as feeling less excited about life as a possessor of unparalleled strength. At first, King just thought that Saitama was talking about his bald head, he gave you the same advice he read in the manga.
At this time, Garo is suffering from many injuries after his fight with Watchdog Man. Because he accidentally discovered King and Saitama together, Garo put aside the pain to rush towards King. However, before he could do anything harmful, Saitama kicked Garo against the wall.
Garo plays bad and so does Saitama
Their third encounter was even funnier than the first two. Saitama had just finished eating when he realized he didn’t have his wallet. After considering a solution, Blizzard reached out and asked Saitama to join his team. However, Saitama had other plans; he ordered a plate of chips for Blizzard and Blizzard was grateful for it. At this time, Garo went to dinner in a dapper state, Saitama immediately used the excuse to chase Garo to leave the restaurant, leaving Blizzard to pay for both.
Garo witnesses Tareo being bullied and decides to help the boy, even though Saitama can keep up with him. But instead of capturing Garo, Saitama released Garo with a warning. Hero Hunter thinks Saitama is pitying him and attacks the hero. Fearing trouble when he was misunderstood as an accomplice, Saitama reflexively swung his fist and punched Hero Hunter and knocked him down once again.
The most anticipated battle between Garo and Saitama
The most recent encounter between Garo and Saitama in One Punch Man took place after they defeated Centisennin and Evil Ocean Water, respectively. Saitama goes to see Garo, thinking he is the Monster King. Garo also introduces himself as a monster and praises being evil. Saitama ignored Hero Hunter’s silly words. Garo noticed Saitama’s carelessness and launched a stealthy attack, but he was still defeated by Saitama.
