A cybernetically-enhanced man with a traumatic past. After nearly dying at the hands of a mad cyborg when he was just a young boy, Genos was rescued by Dr. Kuseno and rebuilt into a cyborg himself. Once fueled by vengeance, Genos eventually meets Saitama and becomes his first friend, training under his wing to become a stronger fighter.

A master assassin with incredible agility that is humbled by Saitama once they cross paths. Ever since that faithful encounter, Speed-O-Sound Sonic declares himself as Saitama’s rival and begins to stalk him to enact his revenge.

Mumen Rider

Mumen Rider, real name Satoru, is just an ordinary man. While he lacks raw strength and superhuman powers, he makes up for it with sheer willpower and resolve. He is never seen without his trusty multi-terrain bike, which he uses to fight with and get around quickly.

Puri-Puri Prisoner

A rather flamboyant man who willfully stays in prison to keep himself from… going after handsome men? Despite his interesting backstory and campy personality, Puri-Puri Prisoner is a force to be reckoned with, even though he is listed as one of the weakest S-Class heroes. His strength is no joke, as he can go toe-to-toe with some of the strongest monsters.

Atomic Samurai

Kamikaze, also known as the Atomic Samurai, is a master samurai. His mastery of Iaijutsu, the quick-draw sword technique, is so astronomical that he can cut literal atoms with his blade. As such, he quickly made a name for himself as the Hero Association’s deadliest swordsman.

Golden Ball

Golden Ball is a seemingly ordinary man, but he is equipped with a super-advanced slingshot which is more lethal than it sounds. His signature rounds are golden spheres that are spiked, and he is a crack shot with his slingshot, able to ricochet the rounds off of multiple walls.

Lightning Max

An extremely agile speedster who utilizes rocket-powered shoes to run circles around his opponents and deliver thunderous karate kicks. His kicks are literally lightning fast, as they discharge electricity thanks to his shoes.

These are all the characters that have been officially announced and are listed on the official One Punch Man: World website, though the announcement trailer seems to suggest that there are more characters planned. If you watch the trailer closely, you can see Smile Man in some battles.

As we mentioned, there definitely seem to be more characters on the way. The Hero Association in the story of One Punch Man is packed with good heroes to choose from, so expect more announcements leading to the game’s launch.
