How did Saitama break his limiter?

Saitama, the protagonist of the One Punch Man series, is a very relatable character; he works hard, is humble, and is lovable overall.

The story behind how he broke his limiter is unique and highlights how simple yet great Saitama is. You were mistaken if you thought he broke his limit while saving someone or defeating an opponent.
He unlocked it because he could not see the back of his head in a mirror.


Yes, Saitama discovered he was facing hair loss issues and wanted to see which part had the most hair loss.

As he only had a single mirror, he tried to look at the back of his head but failed, and after failing numerous times, he went so fast that he could see the back of his head, which means he went faster than the speed of light.

Why is Saitama called One Punch Man?
