    Luffy Vs. Jinbe & Doflamingo

They got to where they are but are ultimately still far from powerful enough to actually be able to face the top of the world.
    You made it sound as though Luffy's strength could only do that much Jinbe is Luffy's friend. Luffy hasn't fought to vanquish Jinbe, but was rather forcing his way through a friend to rescue his friends.
    Seeing how Jinbe was able to stop Hody's water bullet that was shot at Shirahoshi, we can presume they(Jinbe and Hody) are of the same level. You've seen what Luffy managed to do to Hody.
    After the 2-year timeskip, have we ever seen Luffy depleting all of his newly-acquired strength against an opponent? No. Therefore, we can't nonchalantly imply that he is of the same level as Jinbe.

    Let's talk about the Doflamingo part. If the most anticipated battle in Dressrosa had begun by Luffy giving Dofy a Busoshoku punch to the face and sending him flying, we would have found it uninteresting, and the outcome too predictable. If Dofy were that weak, Kaido shouldn't be too much of a challenge to the Straw Hats. And if he is not, the other three aren't, too. And the finding of One Piece is simply a matter of time.

    Let's see the contributing factors to Luffy's beating. They are recklessness, lack of hardening usage, & Dofy's ability.

    1- We have all witnessed how reckless Luffy is.

    At the war two years ago, he was hit by several marines. They all couldn't hold a candle to Luffy in a mano-a-mano fight. If we go by your reasoning, each and everyone of those who managed to land a blow on Luffy are more powerful.

    2- We have all seen that only Hawk Rifle managed to penetrate Chinjao's armor, yet Luffy took on an a proficient haki user without using hardening.

    3- Luffy hastened to attack Dofy without a notion of what his ability could be all about. We have already seen something like this happen before, haven't we?

    When Caesar asphyxiated Luffy, we could have concluded that he is more powerful than Luffy; however, we have all seen how things turned out to be and who's more powerful than whom.

    Talking about strength is very very very very Tricky, Especially in OP.

    I think Luffy is so powerful he's at admiral Level, Not any admiral, Highest of the highest. If he's not, then he should not have seen the other powers in the war. Luffy should think at least he can get stronger, but he does not. He thinks that he can stand against the yonko. He trained under the best of the best. It's very very very^9999 sad if he can not stop an admiral and push him back to his base.

    Luffy saw the admiral,Aokiji, powers at the island and then he developed a new power gear second. If Luffy need a new upgrade in his powers it's ridiculous. Upgrade to me is 1 or 2 year timeskip to just keep on going.

    No, I do indeed believe Luffy can take on an admiral and defeat him. Otherwise, a younko is simply out of his reach.

    Why do you find it ridiculous?
