So, it takes the 12th position among other attacks.
- 11. True Spiral Incineration Cannon –
As suggested by its name, it is a variation of Spiral Incineration Cannon where Genos utilizes his ten-second time limit. While performing this attack, he uses more energy than usual by firing the incinerating blast directly from the core but it is a one-time attack as he runs out of energy after using it. It was first used against the fusion of Psykos and Orochi. Hence, placed above 11th rank but below 10th rank.

Both of them strike their opponent simultaneously while doing their martial arts. Though it couldn’t finish off the monster, it was able to push back and destroy its carapace. As it is one of the powerful attacks hence takes the 10th position.

He also easily deflected the S-Class hero Atomic Samurai’s Atomic Slash, a technique that performs 100 slashes in a single second. Garou combines all the attacks he learned through his combats and combines them to create a single most powerful technique and even claims it to be a God-level Threat. As it prompted Saitama to participate in the fight and can easily subdue other S-Class heroes, it’s been ranked as 8th on the list.

Monster King Orochi’s one of the most powerful attacks where he utilizes his dragons to shoot potent beams of energy.

He used it against both Saitama and Tatsumaki and was even able to slightly enter through Tatsumaki’s defenses. Hence, it ranks as 7th.
- 6. Psychokinesis –
Without a doubt, Tatsumaki is the most powerful esper in the series as she was able to stop powerful bombardment attacks from Boro’s ship and also deflected them back at the ship. According to manga illustrator Yusuke Murata, Tatsumaki can lift the entirety of Z-City and in her battle against Psykos, she easily withstood her gravity 300 times ability. She lifted the entire Monster Association from the underground while simultaneously protecting other heroes inside the facility.

Without a doubt, it ranks as in the 6th position if not above or below.
- 5. Meteoric Burst –
Another one of the powerful attacks from Boros and also his trump card which he uses when he wishes to quickly settle combats. He used this attack against Saitama and easily sent him to the moon by merely kicking. This attack further augments his power and speed beyond normal limits and also changes his appearance. It utilizes his latent energy which puts an immense burden on him and also shortens his lifespan. Hence, we have placed it above 6th position but below 4th position.
- 4. Consecutive Normal Punches –
This list will not be complete without the inclusion of this attack and as suggested by its name, it is a variant of Saitama’s normal punches but is powerful than his single normal punch. Saitama uses his right hand to launch barrages of quick punches which are strong enough to blow his opponent into pieces. He first used it against Boros but he was able to overcome it by using his intense regenerative ability. So, it has been ranked in 4th place.
- 3. Energy Projection by Psykos & Orochi –
Another one of the potent energy attacks of the fusion monster, i.e., the fusion of Orochi and Psykos and is capable of cutting through the Earth’s surface as it passes through. The energy beams were so powerful that they easily overwhelmed Genos‘ Thunder Drill Cannon, an attack speculated to destroy a huge meteor in one shot. Hence, it has been ranked as 3rd as it has the potential to cut through any planet.
- 2. Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon –
Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon is the final attack of Boros which he used against Saitama when his trump card, i.e., Meteoric Burst failed to kill Saitama. He concentrates and releases his latent energy from his mouth in the form of the Golden Beam in the desired range. And this attack falls under the category of God-level threat and according to Boros, it has the potential to easily destroy the crust of an entire planet. Hence, it has been placed in the 2nd position on the list but below 1st place.
Strongest Attack in One Punch Man –
- 1. Serious Punch –
Saitama used this technique to stop Boros’ Collapsing Star Roaring Cannon, a beam capable of wiping out the crust of an entire planet and is the ultimate powerful attack of his which can destroy any opponent in an instant. The shockwave resulting from the impact parted the clouds on a global scale, as well as deliver the final fatal blow to Boros which defeated him in a minute. But the full extent and outcome of it are uncertain as it was not used directly against any opponent. And according to Boros, Saitama didn’t even use his full potential in his punch. So without a doubt, it ranks 1st on the list.
