Type City
Manga Debut Chapter 4
Anime Debut Episode 1

Z-City (Z市, Z Shi) is a large city within the world of One-Punch Man. It consists of a business district, a residential district, and an abandoned, trashed and deserted area. Saitama and Genos are inhabitants of the latter area, which is home to many Mysterious Beings, but has cheap rent. It is the most populated place for Mysterious Beings to be rumored around the area in Z-City.


Z Police StationEdit

Shelter Nr. 7Edit

Shelter 7

Shelter Nr.7

Shelter Nr. 7 is a public shelter located in Z-City, built by the Hero Association in the event of an attack by Mysterious Beings. Externally, it consists of a giant dome lined with circular vents, which is able to withstand anything from extreme temperatures to missile attacks.

Shelter Nr. 7 very much resembles a sporting venue, with at least seven different entrances meant to accommodate large crowds. It was designed specifically to repel Mysterious Beings, and features biometric authenticators at each entrance to detect any possibly masquerading as human; once the shelter's defense system is active, all entrances are sealed and locked.[1]

The interior of the shelter is largely open space, with rafters overhead installed with sprinklers and speakers to spray negative ions and play classical music, respectively—both meant to calm its likely-panicking evacuees.[1]

However, Shelter Nr. 7 does not feature any restrooms, a rather glaring oversight given its enormous capacity.[1]
