Saitama confronted by Tanktop Tiger and Tanktop Black Hole

Three days after the Saitama destroyed the meteor, Saitama was promoted from C-Class Rank 342 to Rank 5. In the process of destroying the meteor, the shattered parts destroyed majority of Z-City and Saitama decided to check out the damage without Genos. As he is walking around the city Saitama was confronted by Tanktop Tiger, who Saitama completely forgot about. Tanktop Tiger accuses Saitama of taking credit for the meteor incident that he did not deserve, but Saitama blows off these accusations, which promotes Tanktop Tiger to call out his brother Tanktop Black Hole.

Observing the mob

The mob chanting for Saitama to quit

Both brother accuse Saitama of cheating and Tanktop Black Hole starts calling out Saitama for destroying the city to draw attention of the citizens towards them. The citizens agree with the brothers statement and began chanting for Saitama to quit being a hero. As this is happening Tanktop Black Hole acts shocked and acts like Saitama made a move to start attacking the citizens. He and Tanktop Tiger then step forward and state that they will "protect" the citizens by taking Saitama down.



Saitama yelling at the mob

Tanktop Tiger claims he has the fighting ability of a tiger, while Tanktop Black Hole boasts a grip strength of 200 kilos. Tanktop Tiger is the first to step forward to challenge Saitama, but was quickly defeated with one punch.Tanktop Black Hole, enraged by this, jumps forward and grabs Saitama's hands only to fall to his knees due to the pain of having his hands being crushed by Saitama. Tanktop Black Hole begins to profusely apologize for lying, but Saitama yells to everyone in the area that it was, in fact, his fault for the destruction and if anyone had a problem with it that they should say it to his face. It took 7 Seconds for Tanktop Tiger to surrender to Saitama and 13 seconds for Tanktop Black Hole.[1]


This is the beginning of Saitama's reputation being damaged and seen as a fraud.
