The different threat levels in One-Punch Man, sometimes also called danger levels or disaster levels, are interesting in many ways. Saitama may One Punch all of them, but when he is not around the system is very relevant. Relevant does not mean flawless though.

One-Punch Man’s Threat levels system
Although monsters (wolf – tiger – demon – dragon – god) and heroes (S – A – B – C) have different ranking systems, both systems are closely intertwined. Depending on the threat level of a monster, a certain number of heroes from a specific class are dispatched.
It should be noted that you can’t compare the different threat levels to the animals they are named after. Monsters are quite a bit stronger than the animal they are named after. That is because One-Punch Man takes place in a world where many of the more vicious animals have mutated.
On the right you can see what a bear looks like in the world of One-Punch Man.
One-Punch Man Threat level Wolf
Wolf level threats are the weakest monsters. They are defined by the Hero Association as posing a threat, but not to the extent of endangering a large number of people. This is later agreed on by Child Emperor, who mentions that a sufficient amount of “normal” people with the right equipment can dispose of them.
When a wolf level threat monster appears, the Hero Association dispatches at least 3 C level heroes or a single B (or above) level hero.
Examples of wolf level threats are the Tongue Stretcher (the monster intimidated by King), a hot dog monster or a gigantic piggy bank come to life. They are stronger and faster than the normal human, but not immediately life-threatening against groups.
As C class heroes cannot reliably take out even weaker monsters by themselves, it is possible to question their worth. It is worth noting though that even the average C class hero has the strength of five regular people. They can take care of a lot of “normal” crime (robberies etc.) on their own. They are also of great value against weaker monsters when working together with traditional law enforcement or even normal citizens.
D-pad, Class C Rank 25, takes on common thugs with relative ease
One-Punch Man Threat level Tiger
The Tiger disaster level is defined by the Hero Association as posing a danger to a large number of people. The equivalent of a threat level Tiger monster is either five B class heroes or one A class hero (or above).
Examples of Tiger level threats are Crablante, the House of Evolution’s Frog Man and Ground Dragon, Octopus Claw Man (who gave King his scar). Gouketsu’s disciples who turned into Crow Monsters are examples of stronger Tiger levels. Individually they can be defeated by stronger A class heroes, but together they form a Demon level threat.
One-Punch Man Threat level Demon
Demon disaster level monsters are capable of posing a danger to a city on their own. The normal response to a Demon threat level appearing is to send an S class hero. If this is not possible, however, a group of no less than ten A class heroes are also stated as being able to deal with Demon level monsters.
Examples of Demon level threats are Deep Sea King, Do-S and Senior Centipede (the Centipede monster defeated by Metal Bat, not to be confused with the Dragon Level Elder Centipede).
The Three Crows, Tiger Level as Individuals, a Demon Threat combined
One-Punch Man Threat level Dragon
Dragon disaster level monsters pose a danger to multiple cities. The only way for the Hero Association to reliably stop them is to send in multiple S class heroes. That is not to say that all class S heroes can defeat dragons, nor that no class S heroes can defeat dragon danger levels on their own.
The Hero Association seems fairly confident sending in Tatsumaki or King in on their own. They also have faith that Blast would be able to take on any Dragon level threat (they even seem to think he would save them from God level threats) but do not have
the ability to summon him. Apart from this, a lot seems to depend on relative hero strength, how high on the Dragon scale the monster is and the exact matchup.
Examples of Dragon level threats are Elder Centipede, Melzargard, Bakuzan (monster form) and Gouketsu.
One-Punch Man Threat level God
A God level disaster is a monster that poses a threat to the survival of humanity. Although we have yet to see an official appearance, there are several candidates for this. Most of these count as spoilers from the Manga and webcomic and are marked as such. You have been warned.
Boros may be a God level threat. This is under discussion though (see below).
Whatever the “great danger” fortune teller Shibabawa warned about could be a God level threat. It is unclear what exactly her prophecy is though. It could be she was talking about Boros, it could be about something that is yet to happen. There has been no confirmation yet. Below you can find some additional webcomic information. To see those possible spoilers, highlight this sentence and scroll down:
Garou could be considered a God level threat when fully evolved. In fact, he himself refers to himself and his advanced techniques as such. This discussion is similar to the discussion regarding Boros (see below), as ONE has mentioned he does not know who would win between Garou and Boros.
Perhaps the biggest candidate for a God level threat is the being that gave Homeless Emperor his powers. The being seems to in fact be called God.
