Z-City (Z市, Z Shi) is a large city within the world of One-Punch Man. It consists of a business district, a residential district, and an abandoned, trashed area—commonly referred to as the Ghost Town. Saitama and Genos are inhabitants of the latter area, which is home to many Mysterious Beings, but has cheap rent. It is rumored to contain incredibly powerful Mysterious Beings.

Z-City has the greatest percentage increase in monster appearing in the last ten years.[1]

There are at least 4 heroes living in this city.


Z Police StationEdit

Shelter Nr. 7Edit

Shelter 7

Shelter Nr.7

Shelter Nr. 7 is a public shelter located in Z-City, built by the Hero Association for use in the event of an attack by Mysterious Beings. Externally, it consists of a giant dome lined with circular vents, which is able to withstand anything from extreme temperatures to missile attacks.

Shelter Nr. 7 very much resembles a sporting venue, with at least seven different entrances meant to accommodate large crowds. It was designed specifically to repel Mysterious Beings, and features biometric authenticators at each entrance to detect any possibly masquerading as human; once the shelter's defense system is active, all entrances are sealed and locked.[2]

The interior of the shelter is largely open space, with rafters overhead installed with sprinklers and speakers to spray negative ions and play classical music, respectively—both meant to calm its likely-panicking evacuees.[2]

However, Shelter Nr. 7 does not feature any restrooms, a rather glaring oversight given its enormous capacity.[2]

Uninhabited ZoneEdit

Saitama Apartment

Saitama's Apartment

The east area of Z-City contains the uninhabited zone, also known as the Ghost Town. A few years ago, frequent appearances of highly strong monsters caused residents to move closer to the center. There are rumors about a massively strong monster living in the uninhabited zone, scaring civilians and leading to the area to be closed off from the public.[6] However, Saitama and Genos still live there, as the mysterious beings pose no challenge to their tremendous strength.

There are also rumors of an elite gathering of monsters for a secret purpose.[7]

The Subterranean People lived underground in the uninhabited zone and it is also where the Monster Association headquarters is located.
