Is Garou Stronger Than Saitama?
Garou is one of the main characters in the series One Punch Man. Garou is blessed with the ability to improve tremendously through fights, that is the stronger his opponent the stronger he becomes.
Garou is a master of martial arts and is able to see and analyze Saitama’s punches effectively dodging them. He is so fast that he is considered even faster than the S-Class hero Flashy Flash.
Garou for example can be compared to Genos who also improves by leaps and bounds, which happens due to his new upgrades however the speed at which he improves when compared to Garou is far slower.
That being said, however, Saitama is still stronger than Garou in every way. In the manga, Garou ends up turning into a monster during his fight with Saitama merely out of his desire to beat him, which causes his appearance to change, and he gains a huge boost in power.
