    War of the Best with the Post time Skip Straw Hats?


    What do you think would've happened if the Straw Hats were in the War of the Best (rescue Ace War)? I know this is probably pointless to some of you, but looking at how the SHs handled the chaos in the Mermaid Island Plaza, doesn't it make you wonder what kind of havoc they could have wrecked were they in the war? What ya think? Let's make the most fun out of this shall we? no hatin.. just lovin..

    the battlefield was full of big shots. i don't think they couldn't have done much except destroying the fodders. only Zoro would have been useful.

    Let's face reality, the Strawhats would have been soundly defeated if they were at the War of the best.
    As someone else said, there were too many Marines and pirates Big shots.
    But it would have been pretty cool to see them there.

    They would have made a difference. I think it would be something like fishman island but with only big shots left after they make an entrance. Luffy takes out only marine fodder this time and then sprints towards Ace. When he gets the key from Hancock he would just have given it to Robin and Ace would have been saved. Nami could have also stolen the keys quickly and her weather powers could help slow Aokiji down a bit with extremely hot weather or cool down the Akainu. The PXes would be destroyed by Zoro or Sanji. Luffy could hit the Admirals though not defeat them. Monster point Chopper could fight the giants, Ussop versatility would be handy with all of those pop greens. Franky would be the least useful and Brook would help with his musical powers.

    Well, except the Monster trio and Franky to some extent, none would have made anything... Although Luffy wouldn't have been trashed that badly I guess (but then again, the admirals were after him so...)

    I think they could've made a difference, but not too big

    Zoro, Luffy, and Sanji would be the only ones to do any damage. I think Luffy would have done better because Zoro and Sanji knew what to expect from Luffy and could help him. If I recall, nearly everyone was going "wtf" at everything Luffy did, from charging straight at the admirals to refusing to give up when he couldn't move. Though, if it came to a battle between Mihawk or the admirals and Zoro or Sanji, I'm not sure if they'd have fared well, but the WB pirates would have helped.

    Actually, Nami wouldn't even need to fight actively. She could control the weather towards WB's favor and even come up with strategies or ways to give them the advantage, while Robin could provide long-range support. She could have prevented Kizaru from doing any damage by redirecting his laser beams. Usopp could have also provided more landspace with his stuff, unless he didn't get that ability until the timeskip. Still, he could have also provided long-range support, even if it didn't do much. Distraction is a better option. Frankie could have done a lot too, especially since he's unaffected by most attacks.

    Well, considering a much weaker Luffy(by himself) pretty much saved Ace, I would say they do it some-what easily this time. How would it not be better when they are stronger and together compared to Pre-TS Luffy doing it solo?

    Oh, post timeskip. Then yeah, they'd stand better chance. The Monster Trio would probably demolish through a lot of enemies but the admirals and vice admirals. My above point still stands, but Brook and Chopper would be more useful offensively.

    i think they could've stopped the stealing of Gura Gura no Mi and saved Ace with easily with Robin's Df and Bunshins.. And luffy would've been wide awake when shanks come.. and they could meet!

    Re: War of the Best with the Post time Skip Straw Hats?

    Post-timeskip, we might see:

    Sanji helps fight Aokiji with his hell memories,
    Zoro helps fight Kizaru with haki, like Rayleigh was doing,
    Luffy helps fight Akainu, he'll risk being burned so he can hit him.

    That could change the outcome, since maybe Jozu and Marco wouldn't get caught, and Whitebeard wouldn't get a giant hole burned into his chest. The other Strawhats could help rescue Ace, or support the other pirates.

    Re: War of the Best with the Post time Skip Straw Hats?

    To put it simply, the outcome of the war would have been different with them:
    Chopper could have been supporting WB with his medical knowledge, lessening the pain and maybe stop the bleeding before jumping in the fight.
    Brook, Usopp, Robin and Nami taking care of the fodder marines with ease.
    Franky, Chopper and Hancock (she was hitting everyone, but targeted the pacifistas so...) taking care of the pacifistas and the giants with WB's commanders.
    Zoro + Marco stopping Kizaru.
    Sanji + Jozu stopping Aokiji.
    Luffy + WB + Jimbe + Ivankov and others going straight to Ace and the only serious obstacles being Akainu and Sengoku (maybe Garp too, who knows).
    The pirate alliance taking care of the vice-admirals.
    Doflamingo and Mihawk were fighting Crocodile and Vista in the war, so they should not be a problem.
    The straw hats post-time skip are really strong imo.

    The pirates would have won the war fair and square, imo.

    They would die horribly. Thank gawd they weren't there.

    Also, you've only one chance to make a good first impression, so I prefer it like this.
    The Sky is pouring
    The wind is blowing
    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell
    'Perfect', the captain said.

    Re: War of the Best with the Post time Skip Straw Hats?

    I disagree, I think at least the Monster Trio would turn the tide easily in the WB pirates' favor. Post-timeskip, they'd be powerful. Zoro, Sanji, and Luffy can take on a Pacifista without a problem now, when it took three of them to take one out. That power level Luffy also fought in the war, and managed to get far and save Ace, even though he had help. The current Luffy would do so much better, especially because he can use haki and even conqueror's haki at will. Combine that with Zoro and Sanji's ability to use haki as well, and they'd fare much better.
