According to data books, Madara Uchiha’s favorite phrase is “Armor-sleeved single hit.” Does this make him a One-Punch man?
While the world of Naruto is full of mighty warriors, few characters are as powerful as Madara Uchiha. Interestingly, according to data books, Madara Uchiha’s favorite phrase is “Armor-sleeved single hit”, referring to the idea of defeating a foe with a single blow. This sounds very similar to another popular anime character, One-Punch Man’s Saitama, who also uses a single punch to dispose of anyone who stands in his way. But is Madara Uchiha Naruto’s equivalent of the One-Punch Man?
The Powers of Naruto’s Madara Uchiha
Madara is often referred to as one of the most powerful shinobi in history. The reason behind this becomes extremely obvious when you look at his gigantic list of powers and abilities. At the most basic level, Madara is a master of taijutsu, making him a powerful hand-to-hand fighter who can easily take down foes much bigger than him, all while avoiding blows with practiced precision. He combines this with his mastery of bukijutsu, which means Madara is skilled with many different weapons, from the usual to the exotic.
Madara’s chakra is so powerful that he can fight for days at a time without tiring. Madara also has excellent chakra control that allows him to perform complex moves with a single hand seal. In fact, his chakra is so strong that even when he distributes it between several wood clones, those wood clones are strong enough to challenge mighty warriors. And this isn’t all of Madara’s powers. He is an expert in several different ninjutsu styles, including a super powerful juinjutsu that allows him to stop the target from performing specific actions. He also knows a Shadow Clone Technique that’s so good that it allows him to fake his own death.
Madara pairs all of this with mastery of both Sharingan and Rinnegan, two of the Three Great Dōjutsu. He also upgraded his Sharingan to the Mangekyō Sharingan, one of the first people to actually do so. This ability allows him to easily read his opponents, learning their location and powers with ease and enabling him to use genjutsu with only a glance. Madara’s Rinnegan is also extremely strong, allowing him to use all of the legendary Six Paths Techniques. Moreover, once Madara absorbs the legendary Ten-Tails, he combines these dōjutsu into the even more powerful Rinne Sharingan.
Why Madara Uchiha Is the Strongest Akatsuki Member
Madara Uchiha is the strongest Akatsuki member because he can perform so many different abilities and combine these in many different ways. Madara has the powers of pretty much every other member of the Akatsuki clan and can perform them more efficiently, making him exceptionally dangerous in combat.
On top of this, Madara keeps getting stronger as he constantly improves himself, especially after his resurrection, when he uses his new body to full effect, even becoming the Ten-Tails’ jinchūriki. The ultimate display of Madara’s power is when he casts the Infinite Tsukuyomi, trapping the world in dreams — a mind-blowing feat that few could even attempt to pull off.
Is Madara Naruto’s One-Punch Man?
However, Madara Naruto is not Naruto’s One-Punch Man for one simple reason. Saitama is the One-Punch Man because this is his only major attack. All of his other abilities are merely extensions of his super strength, and all of them exist to help him land that single punch. While both men only need a single attack to win, Saitama only knows one attack. Madara, on the other hand, knows hundreds of different attacks, and these attacks allow him to end the fight in many different ways, making him an infinitely more versatile fighter than Saitama. Calling Madara a One-Punch Man undersells his terrifying power.
Madara Uchiha Vs. Saitama: Which One-Punch Man Wins?
There isn’t a contest. Madara wins. While Saitama is strong, it’s unlikely that his strength would be enough to harm Madara. However, even if it was, he has to actually land the punch, and Madara could easily prevent Saitama from getting in punching range and can simply dodge out of the way of any blow Saitama throws. The only way Saitama would stand a chance is if he could find a way to overcome Madara’s sensor abilities. If not, Madara would see the One-Punch Man coming a mile away and totally obliterate him before he could get within speaking distance, let alone punching distance. Saitama may be strong, but Madara is on another level.
