A character who seems like an average kid but possesses a will and power beyond what people can imagine. They are considered heroes (or at least by what they are known) in both series. Not only are the main protagonists' personalities are alike but there is also a great focus on the conflict they get into with others. Most of this is portrayed in a shounen fashion with an appeal to comedy and action. Recommended for fans who are looking for something out of the ordinary.

If you ignore the comedy/parody part .. then there is hardly any difference between OPM and Solo Levelling.. starting from the Unknown or not yet revealed reason/logic behind the strength of the Overpowered Main character, the concept of growing from weak to insanely strong , the main character ranked very low despite having the strength to outclass the proud fighters in the higher ranks, everyone looking down on the MC because of his low rank, MC gradually climbing up in rankings while shocking and surprising everyone, the random apprearence of monsters in cities and special humans with abilities to fight them organised in a ranking  read more

Simple-minded protagonist gets themselves into power struggle and hierarchy of those who weild unnatural powers. He proceeds to beat through problems he encounters with pure raw strenght and carefree attitude.

Unlikely heroes? Check. Overpowered main character? Check. Buildup to seemingly epic battles which eventually only last one punch? Check.

Both manga are written by the same author with a similar style. The character designs are simple but has creativity to their complex natures. The action is fluid with a distinctive presentation. Structure also plays a key role with both works that is cleverly written with its characters. There is strength in these characters beyond their power and extends to their developments. Expect intense action and a story of energy that is worth every second of your time.

One Punch-Man and Gintama combines elements of action, shounen, comedy, and all in general crazy fun to make a creative story. The main male protagonist also has a laid-back personality although they do take responsibility when the need calls for it. Both series has very catchy dialogues and character interactions that define the personalities of its cast. Action in both series are depicted with artistic movement and crafted with style. Recommended for any fan of shounen.

Both series' main protagonist has unusual fighting prowess as they fight powerful enemies. However in most cases, they are underestimated by their opponents and even spectators from the story. Both series also contain a lot of comedy gags that satires their character.

Although Rai and Saitama are very different in their hairs, both are overpowered and always the last arrive to deal the finishing blow. Both have their assistant too (Frankenstein in Noblesse, Genos in Onepunch Man)

Although their setting and mood are different (with OPM being a comedy and HnK being more tragic), both manga focus on an overpowered main character, who kills enemies almost effortlessly. Both have great art and over the top action.

Everything you love about Dragon Ball such as the action, humor and likable characters you'll also love in One Punch-Man. Both manga have extremely overpowered main characters, fun stories and are very addictive once you start reading. Dragon Ball is a classic manga and I'm sure One Punch-Man will also become a future classic!

Obsurdly overpowered main character who struggles to find anyone who can at least put up some fight. Fights are ended decisively and it usually takes longer to get into that fight than the fight itself. 
reportRecommended by abystoma2
Written by both ONE and Murata Yusuke, feature the same over the top scenarios of seriousness mixed with comedy. The designs are strikingly similar and the one shot even makes a few cameos in the TV series.  
reportRecommended by Jerkhov
MC is OP, and the charm of the series mainly comes from the consequences of MCs' actions and from others' reactions. 
reportRecommended by Sicnarf24
Both have a witty and optimistic humor, with funny and action-filled fights, captivating characters and of course... DESTROY YOUR ENEMIES WITH ONE PUNCH!

Both manga feature strong protagonists, who have to defeat seemingly invincible enemies who threaten humanity. Both have a lot of over the top action and some comedy.

The most obvious comparison is that the two are both battle shounen with pretty great action sequences. Saitama (One Punch-Man) has some similarities with Gon (Hunter x Hunter): both are kind of dense, enjoy goofing off, have immense power even though they don't look like it, and can be pretty scary when they get serious. Genos (One Punch-Man) has some similarities with Killua and Kurapika (Hunter x Hunter): Genos and Killua both have natural skill, power, a cool sense of seriousness, and wish to catch up to their respective partners; Genos and Kurapika both have goals towards exacting revenge on those who wronged them.

There are differences, with OPM focusing more on action and Mieruko-chan focusing on horror, but both use the same kind of humor involving misunderstandings that quickly spiral out of control. The two manga also subvert expectations of typical tropes in fiction by depicting events that are a little closer to reality.

Both series have a combination of Shonen action, comedy, supernatural, and of course adventure. They both also have protagonists who do what they do just to have fun and go wild everywhere they go.

Main char is extremely strong and oblivious to Boss-level opponents. Both have problem with ugly appearance, unfit to be a hero. Both mangas have original story telling, and gradually getting better as the story progress. For isekai ojisan, if you want a refreshing comedy and romance, give it a try. Its totally addicted in its own way.

- Protagonist is extremely strong - They are both sorta dumb

Both manga follow their respective strongest person in their stories world, with Gokushufudou prioritising the home living comedic aspects that One Punch Man does so well. Just replace the 'World's strongest Hero' with 'Japan's strongest Yakuza member'

Both have overpowered and wonderfully humble MC's. In both titles, emotions are natural (given the situations) and actions scenes are dynamic. Good stories, good art and great feels.

The comedic style is very, very similar, its great. The art is also bomb but not godlike like opm. Very good read, and its getting an anime like now too.

SHGD is the nasty little brother of OPM. Similar but cruder humor, similar superpowers, but with a storyline that reeks of drugs. Actually SHGD contains very little fan service as well (even if the plot is very sex-centered), so that's a similarity as well. And oh they're both extremely funny.

If you ever wonder about the monsters in One punch man, and enjoy the art of the web toon, Pudding Empire is the #1 spot for you, it's almost as it's made as a tribute to One punch man. Unfortunately it's not as brilliant, but hey, what is?

Though One Punch-Man has much more action, the comedy in both these mangas are very similar. If you enjoy one, you'll enjoy the other. 
reportRecommended by buunny
Both of these titles focus on protagonists who are already powerful as oppose to protagonists who have great potential. They are also both very comedic and are from new-blood, shounen authors that stand out from other, new titles.

Two very strong OP MC's Both series have great comedy and fight scenes The main characters fight to protect the weak Both series have amazing art work and character designs

While Zetman is darker and overall better written, that doesn't diminish the raw epicness of this manga in the least... as both share similarities on the concept of superheroes on top of also both being available for the seinen demographic.

Yasuzaki-Man and One Punch Man are both manga that revolve around super heroes. They both give a great mixture of both comedy and action with their over-powered main characters. However, Yasuzaki-Man's character is sort of the opposite of Saitama, being anxious and awkward. 
reportRecommended by BakaWeebTrash
Both have slow motion action scenes, but mainly it is on One Punch-Man. Both main hero characters are overpowered in a sense, and are very kind, altruistic and self-sacrificing. 
reportRecommended by Dunkjoe
Both are hillarious comedy-parody manga about overpowered superheroes who are so strong that they defeat their "cliche" opponents easily with one hit (there is no getting stronger drive of the story) so both of their plots mainly revolve around gags and their personalityes (Hero Saitama and Sunred are also similar - lazy, easily get annoyed and a bit antiheroic). 
reportRecommended by grsh
Both titles are over-the-top action comedies featuring insane levels of destruction, each attack framed with enough visual eye-candy to put the art of entire titles to shame in one single panel. These are truly glorious manga. 
reportRecommended by AfterGlow
Parodies of a superhero genre with untraditional protagoinst that has a certain gimmick. Both mix comedy with action, though Lolicon Phoenix puts more emphasis on the comedy part.

Both are extremely overpowered MCs in a hero manga parody. Hilarious as well.

-Both action manga with incredible art styles. -Their biggest similarity is how ridiculously intense and over the top the fight scenes are. 
reportRecommended by alpha_shadow
Both series blend deep dives into characters' personalities and mental trauma with humour. ChSM is to OPM like rebelious brother. ChSM humour is more edgy and immature and the portrayal of violence and psychology is more brutal, messier, uglier. Both have very creative character designs and splendid chemistry between them. 
reportRecommended by NorbiSenpai
Both of these comedy titles feature and are centered around battles that are won with a single punch. However, in Sexy Commando Gaiden the entire purpose of the secret technique is to catch the opponent off guard enabling anyone to be defeated with a single punch and thus assuring victory, while in One Punch-Man the main character is frustrated because he can't make any fight last longer because of his overwhelming strength.

In two letters: OP. Just like that, both stories revolve around these Over Powered MCs complaning about being too over powered. However, what you must remember is that both are comedies, satires of their respective genres. One punch man: it's a parody that mocks about the superheroe concept along with the archetype of the battle mainstream mangas. Shinka no mi: it's a manzai sketch full of countless tsukkomi per chapter pointing out the absurdness of the cliches seen in most of the isekai light novels. Although, if I should point a difference, the principal might be the development: One punch man jumps right into the acid humor that will,  read more

Keyman and onepunch-man are both parodies of the American superhero genre. Both poke fun at super heroes, magical powers and the action is just as important as the story. Both are hilarious and stylish, keyman even have the Sfx written out in English, hillariously wrong sometimes. Highly recommended!
