    serious Mob could be 70% or higher, I believe anything beyond 100% would make him stronger

    Normal Mob is 100% imo, he can control his mental state with it. Serious would be ??? since the form always appears when there's a crisis like that 1 page appearance when psycho dad went 100% nuclear bomb.

    Yeah, the timelines would be screwy. I'm not gonna guess if Blast is a relative or a future version or just some random guy with no knowledge or Saitama, but I've got a couple of crackpot ideas on what this guy is like.

    1. His training was similar to Saitama's, just as many sit-ups, marathons etc. That made him crazy strong compared to the other S-Ranks. But unlike Saitama he used the air conditioning or skipped meals sometimes so he cant' challenge Saitama, its also why training didn't destroy his hair. I think the end of Boros vs. Saitama was meant to prove that nobody would every truly challenge Saitama in power but this guy will be closer.

    2. His personality is also a parallel to Saitama. Just like Boros was a reflection of Saitama's desire for a worthy opponent, Hammerhead was a parallel to Saitama's laziness when it comes to work etc. Blast will reflect Saitama too. Saitama wants to be loved as a hero but can't seem to get the respect he deserved. So maybe Blast hates the attention and hides away from others but gets credit anyway. Or maybe while Saitama is depressed because he's too strong to be hurt, Blast is depressed because he's too strong so accidentally he hurts others. He'll definitely be some kind of counterpart to Saitama like Boros.

    What if when Saitama is doing a serious sprint, he runs so fast he accidentally time travels, ends up being Blast, then got back to the future after a short while. His short convo with Tats sounds like he knows what would happen in the future.

    Blast has hair, Saitama doesn't. Do you mean that Saitama grows hair at some point? Or maybe that the hair is a wig?

    Hmm fair point, I guess he could grow hair at some point. It's not enough of a contradiction / inconsistency to completely debunk this theory imo

    No, definitely not enough by itself. I was pointing out something small that when added to others might lead to the theory being unraveled. Like Blast having an actual job when Saitama has long since given up on getting one, choosing instead to follow his dream.

    That's not the point... Why you even went with the hair?

    The age pretty much makes it impossible for Blast to be Saitama. Blast in Tatsumaki's flashback looks like an adult while Tatsumaki is a kid... And Tatsumaki is older than Saitama.

    Those "time-travel" theories are such horseshit... I'm astonished at how some people actually like this type of thing or want it to happen.

    I went with the hair cause it was a simple hole in the theory. Also, instead of saying a theory is horseshit, explain why it's horseshit. As it is, you didn't address @Kevintju's comment. While correct, you might as well not have posted for all the direction it has.

    That would be the Master Roshi/Jackie Chun route. If he's older Saitama it may prove why he rose faster, knowing the questions to the test early and all.


    It doesn't have anything to do with liking it. This is a superhero story. Time travel is bound to happen eventually even if it's just a one off thing. Time travel, more then one dimension, someone coming back from the dead. I'm sure it will all happen eventually.

    How does that prove these time travel theories are horseshit? Saitama could time travel when he's already a fair bit older than the current Saitama, with hair and all. Then he could travel to a time when Tats is still a kid, so why can't it work?

    i watched the anime again and i cant recall this thing that i saw that made me think that we've already seen Blast before. i had to watch all the episodes again, i forgot which episode was that one. i think there was already a God level threat before Saitama became a hero and Blast conquered it.

    If you look back at Mob Psycho, all that stuff looked like God level to me. What if Mob is actually Blast in this story line?? :argh

    Blast is a psychic or an esper just like Mob and Tatsumaki. Blast knows about Tatsumaki's hidden power when he rescued her. That wont be possible unless he can read Tatsumaki's mind right? So Blast is indeed an esper.
