One-Punch Man of the web-comic-turned-manga-and-anime isn’t about your typical hero. So it’s no wonder that One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows isn’t your typical fighting game. Saitama, better known as One-Punch Man, is able to destroy enemies with one fatal blow. But this is a three-on-three fighting game, with teams of different fighters duking it out, making it tougher to get a single-punch win.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows balances Saitama’s power in an interesting way. For three-on-three fighting games, players usually rotate through their characters as they suffer hits and health damage during the fight. If players pick One-Punch Man as one of their three fighters, though, he will always be the third fighter in the rotation. When the bout starts, Saitama is seen in a small window running late, trying to get to the fight as soon as he can (a clever detail, because the manga and anime character is known to always be late). While players wait for him to show up, they have to use their other two fighters, which puts them at a disadvantage against any opponent who hasn’t selected One Punch Man and has full use of three fighters.
