  • Murata's favorite characters are the Deep Sea King and Boros because of the impact they left on the One-Punch Man world and series.[7]
  • Murata's least favorite character is Sweet Mask, so he draws him as handsomely as possible in order to grow to like him more.[8]
  • The first recorded interaction between ONE and Murata was on Twitter, and can be found here.
  • Murata was inspired by Akira Toriyama, the mangaka of Dragon Ball, to become a mangaka.[9]
  • One of Murata's earliest achievements was winning character design contests for Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 5 when he was a young teenager. These two characters, Dust Man and Crystal Man, were based on Murata's artwork.[10]
