One Punch Man threat levels By Hero Association

The different One Punch Man Threat Levels, sometimes also called danger levels or disaster levels, are used by the Hero Association as a way to measure how dangerous the threat they face is.

The designation of such levels occurs after their initial meeting with Saitama, who evaluated their strength and decided what level is appropriate for them. After that, the Hero Association formally introduced this system in the guidebook distributed to all affiliated heroes.

This blog post will discuss the One Punch Man Threat Levels and their strengths and weaknesses.

5) One punch man Threat level Wolf

The weakest monsters are wolf-level threats. They are recognized by the Hero Association as a danger, although not to the extent of risking a large number; Child Emperor also tells us that, because they are used to being afraid of everything, humans have gotten better at adapting to keep things from happening.

When a wolf-level threat monster appears, the Hero Association sends 3 C level heroes or 1 B (or above) level hero. If they fail, then a more powerful hero would be sent, and more and more until the threat is gone.

4) One punch man Threat level tiger

Even though Child Emperor labelled A-class and B-class heroes as disaster level threats, they are still far from the strength of the monsters that are equivalent to them, which is why the Hero Association does not act immediately.

If there were only one A-class hero in existence, they would be the most powerful individual in the world. However, an individual A-class hero is still weaker than even a single monster B-class.

Let’s say a monster A-class appeared, and the child emperor sent 4 B-class heroes. If they were not able to handle the threat, then they would send an A-class hero. Even if the A-class hero was not strong enough to defeat it, they could hold their own and enough time for the backup to arrive.


3) One Punch Man Threat Level Demon

One of the most dangerous threats is a demon-level threat. Child Emperor told us that, on average, at least 50 A and B-class heroes are required to defeat a demon-level threat.

The most powerful hero globally, Blast is only ranked at S class, which falls between high-level A and B. Because of this, even a demon-level threat can be too much for Blast to defeat alone.

Let’s say Blast was sent with an A-class hero to deal with a demon-level threat, but they were not successful. Then the number of people Blast would take with him would go up until he has enough people to defeat or at least fight the demon-level threat.

2) One Punch Man Threat level Dragon

Disaster level threats are equivalent to a nuclear weapon in the sense that they endanger human life on a massive scale. Disaster level threats include Dragon-level monsters and natural disasters, such as earthquakes.

The Hero Association would contact all A-class and B-class heroes to respond to a disaster level threat. S-class heroes are obligated to respond to any disaster level threat, regardless of the Hero Association’s requests.

1) One Punch Man Threat Level God

The last and most powerful threat level is the god-level threat. currently, The only hero that falls into this category is saitama, who has been ranked as the strongest hero.


The Hero Association believes that there is no higher level than god-level, and even an individual like Blast would not defeat a god-level threat alone. The disaster level of a god-level threat is equivalent to the power of all nuclear weapons in the world going off simultaneously.

One-Punch Man’s Threat levels system

Although monsters and heroes have different ranking systems, both are connected. When there is a new monster, some of the heroes will change their ranks.

It should be noted that you can’t compare the different threat levels to the animals they are named after. Monsters are much stronger than animal counterparts. Child Emperor said an A-class hero is the weakest human, even though it’s below a wolf/monster C class.

That is because One-Punch Man takes place in a world where many of the more vicious animals have mutated. On the right, you can see what a bear looks like in the world of One-Punch Man.

One Punch Man Threat Levels system flaws

1) The heroes who work for the hero association might make a mistake. For example, some monsters look strong, but they are not tough. Other monsters might be smaller, but they can be really tough.

Different monsters have different personalities. Some monsters try to make themselves seem strong. Others try to make themselves seem weak.

2) There are different levels of disasters. The hero association will depend on heroes who are on the scene to update the disaster level. Heroes have their own plans. They often exaggerate the danger levels of monsters they encounter in hopes of a promotion.

As a side note, some heroes are braver. They will do something difficult for them. This might be because they want to be seen as brave or not smart enough to think about the consequences.

3) Threat levels do not take the context into account. This may lead to sending a hero that is not strong enough for the situation.

Child Emperor’s attempt to read One Punch Man Threat Levels

Child Emperor created a mask he calls Okame-chan. When he wears this mask, Child Emperor can get a reading on the strength level of both heroes and monsters. 

The goal is to be able to have a quicker and more reliable way of determining threat levels. This device has several issues of its own

1) It only measures physical strength.

2) Cyborgs such as Genos can’t have their strength read at all

3) There are bottom and upper levels for readings.


Many people say that One Punch Man is a parody of the superhero genre, but this is not the case. The hero association has rankings for heroes and monsters, just like most parts of One Punch Man.

The one difference is that One Punch Man uses real life numbering systems for its ranking system instead of the usual words used.
