Dragon Ball and One-Punch Man fans are once again debating who would win in a fight between Goku and Saitama! Imagining battles between two action heroes is one of the best parts of being an anime fan, but because official crossovers are rare (and true results are ever rarer than that) it can be hard to gauge which of two particular characters would actually win in a fight. That's probably why these debates continue to spark up every now and again, and they are only fueled further by new additions and reveals in any given series' particular canon.
It's especially true for two of the strongest characters in action anime series, Dragon Ball's Goku and One-Punch Man's Saitama. With each of these fighters pulling off some incredible victories and feats within their respective series, this is one of those debates that will likely never end until an officially decisive winner has been revealed. But it recently took over Twitter once more thanks to a viral prompt from @HeavenlyControl:

"Goku is Capable of Losing, Goku Isn't"
If you're seriously debating whether Goku or Saitama is stronger you've missed the point of One Punch Man
Saitama is EXACTLY as strong as he needs to be for it to be funny when he obliterates the villain in one hit. Goku is capable of losing, Saitama isn't, that's the joke. pic.twitter.com/lOpBKNUo8q— Monkey D. Lenny (@MonkeyDLenny) February 23, 2021
"One Punch Man for a Reason"
Saitama can easily beat Goku in a fight. They call him One Punch Man for a reason broski. pic.twitter.com/WQfYSf3n3T— ERIC KNOWS EVERYTHING (@ERICKNOWS123) February 23, 2021
What's the Canon the Fight Takes Place in?
Feats: Goku 1 shots— Eugene Krabs (@Eugenekrxbs) February 23, 2021
However, IF it’s canonically revealed that Saitama can effortlessly beat his opponents, no matter their strength, than Saitama. https://t.co/IAj1h7F8MT
"Being Called One Punch Man Doesn't Make You Unbeatable"
Saitama... gets folded. By base form super goku no less
Being called One Punch Man doesn't make you unbeatable. I swear the arguments for Saitama are so WEAK https://t.co/mYCqNHfkeT— Broken Ronin (@TheBrokenRonin) February 23, 2021

Where the Fight Takes Place is Important Too!
Straight combat : Saitama
A little strategy : Goku
We know and saw that Saitama can't breath on space, teleport him to an empty galaxy, Goku won.— iLirr Lobeaa (@iLobeaa) February 23, 2021
Hand to hand combat tho, saitama won. It's just the rule of his character.
