Novels with Overpowered main character Recommendation

Who doesn’t love an OP main character? Tried of watching the shounen aka weak to Strong? I don’t know about you but I am.

Whenever someone mentions OP MC in Anime, the first thing to come to mind is Saitama from One Punch Man. He is kinda cool and ridiculously overpowered.

We also have some great characters in Novels capable of winning the fight in one punch or be insanely powerful mentally or physically to have the game in their control all the time.

Great World as well as Character Building. Shows many sides of human personality, their choices, and their consequences in a unique way. Here the MC here doesn’t directly take part in the story but rather wait and watch the development of the story and the characters.
