    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    Guys I want to make one comment. Whitebeard has the dangerous devil fruit I agree but Shanks not having one doesnt make him weak. Garp didnt have one, it was not hinted Roger had one or Rayleigh either but these characters are freaking powerful. Whitebeard has CoC agreed but I think even in CoC there are levels and I bet(intuition) of all present now in one piece shanks has the highest level of CoC. Haki Vs Devil fruit in this case is like unstoppable force vs immovable object.

    Shanks for me

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    Well since Oda has made him the strongest man in the world... Confirmed it again through Sengoku.. Dont really see any point for people to argue about who is stronger. Ppl can like Shanks more than WB but no one can say hes stronger than WB.

    It's because he did to Akainu in 5 minutes what Aokiji couldn't do in 10 days.
    well, it wasn't just a title,but rather a matter of fact. not to mention all the statements made by the other important characters (gorosei,sengoku ecc.). surely shanks isn't much weaker,but WB really was said to be able to defeat anyone,not to mention he was ill!

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    I give to shanks because oda had build up shanks as a character that he is in the top and oda just teases with his power but what WB did in the war vs the marines is something that a regular human couldn't possibility handled and to add that he was really sick, it makes everyone shit their pants around WB but a healthy WB vs sharnks, i don't know the out come of this battle.

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    First of all, everybody who's just coming out of the woodwork now to say 'This isn't a tournament, nobody compares skills, it's all about popularity!' I have one question? Where were you all during Enel vs Blackbeard? The Closest fight we've had in this tournament, both sides giving strong arguments, and most importantly actually analysing abilities rather than just saying 'Shanks is cool he can beat anyone!!111!1!'

    Now, back to this fight - I'd honestly give it to Whitebeard, if only due to the amount of damage he caused while so injured and ill. WB, when he went mad and started stomping people of Akianu's standard (who, by the way, is still one of the strongest people in one piece behind the 4 Emperors and Rayleigh), had been stabbed repeatedly, shot with lasers, and on top of all that was dying anyway. I'm not going to talk about 'healthy' Whitebeard in this, as we haven't seen 'healthy' Whitebeard fight. But, for a bit of WB's power context, in the Battle for Marineford Squard stabbed him, Aokiji froze him, Akianu hit him with a magma attack, various marines stabbed him, Kizaru shot him with lasers, and after all that he still had enough strength left in him to practically OHKO Blackbeard AND Akianu in very rapid succession.

    I appreciate Shanks is strong, as is up there in terms of the strongest OP characters, but all Shanks has done in the series so far in terms of feats is show he can spar with Mihawk and Whitebeard, and block one of Akianu's attacks with a sword. Now, bearing in mind at this point Akainu had already been beaten up by WB and fought the majority of the WB pirates, it's not all that impressive. Shanks's great conqueror's Haki won't do anything against someone as strong as WB, and while he has shown almost godly haki levels WB isn't exactly slouching either...

    Plus, WB with his Nagatina and Gura Gura no mi provides him with a little bit more versatility - If he swings his Nagatina with his right arm in a wide arc while his left summons a shockwave, Shank's one arm really becomes a disadvantage.


    Also, Sachsenhesse, I hope after spending the entire tournament voting against those who showed less feats, you didn't just vote for Shanks :P

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    It's not that Shanks is a regular badass with some of his appearances in the manga. It would be a shame if Oda does not live him name up to the badassery. I mean he was the FIRST cool character we kind of met in the series. Sure characters have been hyped? But SHANKS?... Come on, we know him from the start ...

    Though to say a fight between yonko can go either way. The thing is WB was the strongest of the yonko ... supposedly, in his prime he would beat Shanks, and that STRONGEST MAN was probably about his prime more, of course I still think in a battle when WB is old and Shanks is in his current age, Shanks has the upper hand, just by a bit ...

    Fair enough, if you think that, but can I please ask why? I know Shanks must be strong, but I don't understand how people can vote him above the likes of WB (or even Rayleigh!) - from all we've seen from him, I can't see him winning.

    I'm not saying you're not right, but I just don't see the logic and was hoping for enlightenment...

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    Shanks is a yonko, 4 strong pirates that everyone are terrific to hear their name and WB and shanks got that title while Rayleigh could easily be between them or above them i he wasn't retired but when it comes a battle between titans, the battle could go either way.

    I'm not saying you're not right, but I just don't see the logic and was hoping for enlightenment...
    We have seen from him so little, but can we look at this as: HAVE WE SEEN ENOUGH? ... To say for sure he is below them. He is a mystery character, but we can not underrate him just because his time to shine in the series has not come yet, but let's compare stuff:

    YONKO: 4 emperors, 4 strongest pirates that rule the NW. (Now with BB being one we know 5 that have had this title.)

    Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    Whitebeard - yonko, strongest man in the world(do not know at what time-during the war many mentioned his time had faded), became yonko though was always seen as the strongest among them(we have not really seen Big Mom and Kaido though - if we judge fairly they are just below him, but only JUST!) Fact is Whitebeard is from a different era, I assume these 3 are from the great Age of Piracy more. How can we even compare yonko going on the title alone, we can assume they are almost all equal, and are all afraid of attacking each other.

    Going by some logic Shanks seems to be the youngest of them, I would go even further to say that he became yonko earlier in his life than any of them. So how can he be weak? So young and he is at that stage? Shanks is a newer era, a different type of pirate. We can flatter WB all we want but I see Shanks as the strongest thing of the Great Age of piracy, just look at how far he got?

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    I vote for Whitebeard.

    He was the strongest man after Roger and during the War with bad health managed to fight several Admirals at once and also trash Akainu, even though he already had an illness, tons of injuries and half of his face blown...

    I don't really know how Shanks can logically win against Whitebeard, especially with only one arm...

    Now make Shanks beat Whitebeard too, because fuck it all, and then we'll have a one armed champion who never even fought on panel.

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    I voted WB. Shanks never showed anything to be above WB. He sure is strong as hell but untill i see him defeating an admiral like WB did (against Akainu), he's nowhere near the old man.

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    Shanks! Whitebeard is only a shadow of his prime.

    Shanks showed no fear who ever he was against with, in fact he pretty much does what ever he wants, and succeeded in everything he wanted to do. I believe being an ex crew of Gol D. Roger, he is the nearest to becoming the new PK, in fact he can pretty much get One Piece if he wants to, just that he doesn't. He's more interested in keeping the peace and the balance of the world. Red Hair Pirates are the Peace Corps in One Piece, making sure there is peace and balance. He only fights when it's necessary.

    WB lost Ace, lost to the Marines and lost to BB, and he is dead, he died a loser.

    If and when Whitebeard uses both hands, ambidexterously, Shanks has legs, but what's more important are what's above his shoulders, and Oda pretty much emphasized Shanks lost no battle power even with losing one arm.

    If Squardo can drill a hole to Whitebeard, Shanks can do better. Heck I did not see WB stop Akainu's fist, only Shanks can do that, BB was not even afraid of the old man, but he waived the white flag to Shanks. Shanks, was even unscathed from his meet ups/skirmish with Kaido.

    I read all of those comments as "Waaahh, my favorite character lost and I don't think they should have!"

    Shanks is no pushover, but neither is Akainu, and Whitebeard made him look like he was.

    Re: FINAL: Whitebeard vs. Shanks

    Akainu was willing to become a pushover through WB. Yes sir, but not to Shanks, he'd rather lay it off and calm down than to fight Shanks.
