But im not saying Gokudera is weak by any means.
I genuinely think its:
Hibari Kyoya/Rokudo Mukuro
In order of strength.
As for Bel, http://www.mangahere.com/manga/katek...12/c104/5.html shows it precisely. Bel was down. Bel was fighting more out of instinct than anything else. It's said Bel has pretty much no strength left. The only reason he won was because Gokudera forfeited the ring in order to escape the building, at Tsuna's request. Bel lost.
Remember she only stayed in the main cast as her popularity was surprisingly high and was initially not meant to be so central to the story like the rest of Kokuyo. But fans loved her so she stayed in the team.
However Mukuro came 3rd in Popularity so the author had to bring him back to the story.
The ring was given to Mukuro.
Remember how they all resemble the 1st Guardian of their flame? Chrome has no connection to Daemon at all, and while all the Guardians were meant to be those who had confronted and engaged with Tsuna, Chrome had never met Tsuna or had any connection with him til Mammon pwned her
Chrome is NOT Ryohei level hahahaa. 10 years later Lambo and Ryohei would kick her ass lets be fair.
Although i agree Gokudera > Bel, I think they were practically equal here no?

I'd rank them as follows:
Yamamoto and Gokudera are Tsuna's closest guardians, obviously, but I think the series has been trying to make the point that while Gokudera is Tsuna's right-nad man (and therefore high up the pecking order), Yamamoto is a better fight.
In terms of raw fighting ability I'd put Ryohei above Gokudera, and even high than Yamamoto in terms of raw power, but because of his hot-headedness and Gokudera's brilliant tactical ability, he ranks lower.
The real guardians are the ones that were chosen by Iemitsu and Reborn. They chose Mukuro.
For all of Chrome's attainment of Rings or Gears, Mukuro played a massive role. She would be dead without him, and was only relevant to the guardians as she was the connection to Mukuro.
Remember it was Mukuro himself, who shared his role with her. Without him she would be dead and will forever owe her life to him. He didnt necessarily have to choose her to share it with. He could have chosen someone else.
People forget that it was Mukuro's choice to share the guardianship.
If anything, he shares it with her, but she has no connection to the 1st Team like the rest of the guardians do.
Basically, it is true that mukuro IS the Vongola Guardian of Mist, but now that Chrome is shown to be a great battle potential which is comfirmed by Mukuro (i wonder what Mukuro's "warrior" means), she might be stronger than mukuro in the future. My hyper intuition says that.
When the technique was used, it was all MUKURO lol. Chrome added power. She did not in anyway create the technique. Remember it could have been Flan who could do it, although Chrome's flame is stronger than Flan's what they said.
When the technique was used, the Vindice said immediately assumed Bermuda was talking about Mukuro Rokudo and complimented him. The Vindice didnt really react to Chrome.
Honestly Chrome has gotten stronger, but nothing suggests she is even near Mukuro level strength. All she did was add her flame to someone else's technique.
Mukuro > Chrome forever in this series. Just be glad she is now an awesome fighter as oppose to being useless up until now.
Had Mukuro not had made that amazing Illusion, what good would Chrome have been?
