One-Punch Man's Saitama is unrivaled, his power absolute. With one punch, Saitama can end the whole career of a god-tier villain without breaking a sweat. Since his first appearance, the question regarding Saitama has always been: what, exactly, is Saitama and where does his power originate? Is the self-proclaimed hero for fun merely the strongest hero on the planet or is he something more, something less than human? One theory suggests that the shocking secret behind Saitama's power is that he is the very thing he defends against -- he's a monster. The concept of Saitama being a monster is suggested by Dr. Genus, the genius villain of the House of Evolution. "No matter how much effort one puts in, every living being has an intrinsic limit to its growth," said Dr. 88 of the One-Punch Man manga. "Too much power becomes unbearable and overwhelms its host, turning it into a mindless, rampaging monster." Therefore, any being surpassing said limits would be, by definition, a monster. Genus theorizes that the limiter can be removed through various trials, a concept shared by Psykos, the Monster Association's military advisor. Through multiple near-death experiences in battle, the theory suggests that one can break their own limits and return stronger, having undergone a mental and physical transformation. This would result in body modifications to suit the newfound power, giving monsters their, well, monstrous appearance, as well as unimaginable abilities. By Saitama's personal account, becoming a hero simply meant performing 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups and running 10 kilometers on a daily basis -- far from fighting to the brink of death.
Is this enough to remove a limit on one's potential power put in place by God? His appearance did, in fact, change -- from that of an ordinary salary man to the "caped baldy," though being hairless is far removed from growing scales and a tail. There is evidence that the limiter can, in fact, be surpassed and even broken. Garou, who is often referred to as the "Human Monster," has shown that the limiter is not impenetrable, having become a half-monster himself. Following his battle with the Monster Association's Royal Ripper and Bug God, Garou, on the brink of death, does just the opposite: he powers up. Pushed to the limits of his abilities, Garou's entire being transforms -- half of his body becoming a monstrosity. His powers increase exponentially and his threat level skyrockets as Garou realizes his true potential. Garou is only half-monster, however, suggesting that his limiter may not have been entirely broken, and if Dr.
39;t imagine a human so powerful.
Genus' theory holds true -- that those who break their limiters become mindless -- then Garou is certainly not a monster; seems fully aware of his new abilities and in control if only loosely. Not all in the world of One-Punch Man can be explained away via science, however. Dr. Genus's theory that Saitama removed his limiter does not account for him being a perfectly ordinary human being, one who experiences boredom and has an affinity for video games. If a prerequisite for breaking the limiter requires a rampage, Saitama does not fit the bill. Sci-Fi author Arthur C. Clarke, in his speculative writings on what the future would hold, suggested that any highly advanced technology would be indistinguishable from magic, the third of Clarke's Three Laws. Perhaps Genus, in the face of Saitama's unfathomable strength, merely assumed that the hero had broken his limiter because he couldn't imagine a human so powerful. Perhaps faced with Saitama's power, Genus merely assumed that Saitama must have broken his limiter.
However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He has also been shown to date with normal female cat.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.
Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
Gian is also confident in cooking, but just like his singing, his hand made food can be a nightmare for other people very easily. However, Gian does not hesitate to help his friends when they are in real trouble. Throughout the series, particularly the films, he is often the one who voices the most concern and refuses to look away when there is a problem, an opposite of Suneo's cowardice. While he is described by others as daunting and intimidating, he is very sensitive and prone to crying when something touching happens, and he actually values his friends highly, a feeling which his friends sometimes reciprocate. Gian also has a soft spot for his younger sister, Jaiko, and usually tries to prevent her from trouble, even if she can perfectly handle her situation. Gian basically is a bullying 'tsundere'. His catchphrase is "What's mine is mine. What's yours is also mine." (「俺の物は、俺の物。お前の物も俺の物。」, "Ore no mono wa, ore no mono. Omae no mono mo ore no mono."), also known as Gianism (ジャイアニズム, Jaianizumu ) in Japan (the Japanese band Nightmare have borrowed the term for their albums Gianism Best Ofs and Gianizm). Pisces) is the fox-faced (inherited from his mother) rich child who loves to flaunt his material wealth before everyone, especially Nobita. A lot of the stories start with Suneo showing off some new video game, toy or pet which evokes Nobita's envy.
