And I'm not underestimating anything. Being hit with a fire cross isn't the same as being hit with 100 000 000 volt lightning. He can have a constitution of a whale but it would still knock him out.
If I may join in the discussion; Lighting is alot more deadly in a fight fire. Fire takes time to burn, lighting fries you instantly. For example, had ace's fire lances been out of electricity they would've went right through WB
I could see that being her finishing move, but i can't imagine what it would look like.
And i've been thinking about the Shichibukai setup for a while, the seven of them are like an all-star team of badass.
Each of them are mighty and powerful in their own specific ways. Because the shichibukai are not a normal pirate crew they are each infamous pirates!
so i'll say, if there was a one on one, in ANY combination of the shichibukai-
Whoever has the initiative wins.
Yup. try it out in your head it works.
" I think you are drastically underestimating Blackbeard's con score.
on the whole lightning thing,"
haha, yeah BB's got the epic amulet of health and something like a +12 mod at the least!
I can see him being electrocuted, stabbed, lit on fire, then laugh it off and then dish it back out.
Honestly though, lightning's been shown to be stronger in One Piece then fire.

His fire lances did go right through Blackbeard and probably ought to have pierced his lungs, but Blackbeard was shown to be practically invincible.
The reverence people have for Ace means it wouldn't surprise me at all if his bounty was greater than 500 million.
I also reiterate the common adage that amps kill you, not volts, so the voltage of Enel's attacks is irrelevant.
Lightning strikes faster and harder. That's all there is to it. Lightning will kill you in a second and fire will make you scream in agony.
Those lances didn't pass through Blackbeard, or pierced his lungs. That would mean that he has super fast regeneration capability.
And what are you saying? That all those Enel enemies passed out from a negative placebo effect? Just because Enel called his attacks using volts, doesn't mean that his lightning lacked amps. I'm not gonna convert volts into amps so that this discussion would be scientifically accurate. I wouldn't know how anyway.

The easiest way to think about volts, amps (current), and ohms (resistance) is with water. You have a barrel of water and you cut a hole in the bottom. The amount of water in the barrel pushing water out of the hole would be volts. The size of the hole would be resistance (smaller hole is bigger resistance). The speed the water leaves the barrel is then amps, which can be derived from the other two values.
Edit: I think BB could handle Enel the same way he handled Ace. If you look at http://www.onemanga.com/One_Piece/441/11/ you see that he mentions lightning by name.

http://read.mangashare.com/One-Piece...1/page013.html) The fire lances don't seem to have actually gone through Blackbeard's body, but they have pierced his skin (hence the blood). If they had skewered through him he would be dead, regardless of his superhuman endurance as no one can survive long with punctured lungs or heart.
It's possible that Blackbeard would have beaten Enel I guess. But it would be really hard. Enel probably has the strongest fruit there is. Overall I mean. Attack power and speed by itself are more than enough. When you add the ability to hear thoughts it's just too much.
But we're straying a little here.
It's a shame that we don't know that much about other Shichibukai abilties.
Doflamingo's ability is interesting. The people he controls retain their senses but can't do anything to control their limbs. I don't think it's some simple strings at work. Doflamingo couldn't make people clench their fists by pulling strings. It's almost like he controls nervous impulses.
I'm curious about his fighting capabilities. He doesn't strike me as an unarmed fighter. First time I saw him, I thought he was some swordsman, but there is no sword, unless he's hiding it in those feathers.
Blackbeard states that nothing can escape gravity, even lightning. Once he starts using his vortex, no amount of "speed" is going to counter it. If I learn to run fast enough, will I stop being pulled towards the ground? Even photons themselves (light particles for those who don't know) can't escape the effects of gravity. Light waves are shown to "bend" towards planets. Enel can do all kinds of damage while he's being sucked in, but chances are that he can't do enough to kill BB.
Once BB has Enel in his grasp, Enel's powers are gone and it's game over.
MAYBE he's a psychic. Anyone ever thought of that? That would be really interesting.
Or maybe its telekinesis
