You really care about Vergo, huh?
Anyway, I think that Vergo wins this one.
^ Well, at the moment I'm going with the theme "Vergo VS".
Yeah me 2, but I wonder how the shogun's special alloy would fair against Vergo's haki imbued bamboo. Vergo is really fast, But as Bellamy stated, Franky hasn't shown us his all yet. If Vergo gets hit by the radical beam it's goodnight Vergo San.

Vergo is strong. Franky is a Strawhat. He's a cyborg. He hasn't show yet his full potential, not even close, I'm sure of that. He's less funky since time-skip, but he's still one of my favorites by far. I'm sure one laser beam could do it. So, Franky without any hesitation.
Vergo loses to Franky's beam? Does he lose to pacifistas as well then? :
I don't think there actually exists a proper defense for the beam so far. The issue with the beam is not the enemy physically resisting it IMO but rather hitting the enemy with it. I don't think a pacifista would actually ever hit someone of actual power with the beam. I would lean towards franky being well stronger than a pacifista for that matter. I don't really have a clue of this one although I admit I lean towards vergo. Vergo is pretty strong and actually had an edge over sanji who is supposed to be franky's superior at the crew. Then again sanji was pretty hurt. I don't think the general is that big a deal to be honest though. It certainly packs a punch but I don't think it has shown to be that huge an asset and most of the actual firepower it has comes from franky himself.
I strongly think that every Strawhat is now able to take on a Pacifista, some most easily than others. Some by powers, some by strategy and new abilities. It would be foolish to think that we saw all the new powers of our Strawhats simply in Punk Hazard or Fish Island. This was simply a glimpse of their new powers.
Vergo is strong as hell, sure. But imo, way overrated. Like all members of DD's family, he was beaten because of his confidence.
Franky has never really been the type to show speed feats however I don't think that is an issue here. Franky as far as we know is supposedly extremely resistant to damage considering his new body should be made from stronger materials. He is at least as resistant as his shogun IMO, which should be quite a bit. Realistically speaking franky has no need for something like tekkai. His strength should be quite considerable too. Of course the main issue here is that franky has not actually had a serious fight since the timeskip so we have no clue of his capacities. Still, if we assume he has significantly improved versions of what he showed in the past he should be quite fearsome even for vergo.
Yes kkck !
And I really hope that Oda will redeemed Franky and honor him at last during Dressrosa Arc ! I was so happy during FI when he arrived with his old haircut on his funky rhino-bike ! That. was. Awesome ! So I expect a Franky VS Picca and an enormous fight who will definitely show his NEW strenght ! Then, I think it would be fair to compare those two fighters here.
Franky is quite strong but I dont expect him to fight one of main bad guys of this arc.
Uh, my vote made Vergo the leader. My reasoning for voting him is simple though:
I think Vergo is faster and has stronger close range attacks than Franky. I think in an all out fight Sanji would be an equal opponent to Vergo and I see Sanji above Franky. Vergo's attack could probably bypass Franky's defense and if Franky lands an attack Vergo could probably withstand it. His huge attack that hit Baby 5 and Buffalo couldn't even knock those two out - and we hopefully all agree that their defense is nothing against Vergo's CoA.
I'd say Franky. I don't think him nor the monster trio would have problems with him especially serious.
