I actually think that the 50% are some good value. Since Luffy always gets a huge power up during importan fights and he still got a lot fighting to do, before even facing the first Yonkou, his current strengh would still be huge, but leave a comfortable place for improvement.
I really like that concept of Devil Fruits. It shows the power balance throughout the storyline. At first Logias are the most powerful fruits in any possible case. Now, further into the story the balance shifts.Quote:
In the end i would bet on parameica fruits, that alter your physical attacks, to be the strongest. Excluding Earthquakes in this matter, Luffy, Bellamy, even Miss Doublefinger have some pretty potent abilities. In a 1v1 match-up everything that boosts your raw physical strengh counts most, if you have a strong Haki.
Zoans are pretty good to, but i would rather consider them midclass, since they do increase your power, but not in an unnatural way like parameicas do. The possible multiplier is not that high in my opinion.
Now, the emperors are unknown. We have not seen any of them fight except for whitebeard, but he was called the strongest man in the world. So this is unknown. But from the looks of it now, in this saga he is going to fight "Big mama" and from how we know one piece he will probably win, but will be at the verge of death.
The emperors lieutendants are not as strong as luffy. It would not make sense for the saga to be about defeating big mam, if he even cant defeat her lieutendants. but the other emperors are probably stronger than luffy.
Mihawk is kinda unknown, but from the battle vs the navy, when you see him fighting luffy, so luffy was could fight bak, and hurt him. When you look at pre-timeskip strawhats, it took all of them to damage the pacifista a bit. After the timeskip, luffy defeated one with one punch. If you look at that, luffy can probably defeat mihawk, but it would be a close call.
The rest of the people you listed are stronger than luffy.
Movies are not canon and older guys tend to drop in power so comparison if it's not actual can't be measurable and reliable.
Luffy defeating Mihawk? Best swordsman+Sharpest Sword vs A rubber man whose Haki couldn't protect him from Hody's bite?
Luffy currently facing a more powerful enemy than himself for the first time since the timeskip. The time-skip would have killed most of his growth, powerwise,if Luffy was on Admiral tier already(which in my eyes is the highest tier)
Magellan (he's about the same level as the Admirals imo, he's right up there)
Garp and Sengoku the Funky Buddha
ALL the Admirals obviously
Doflamingo, Mihawk, Kuma, and I still think Crocodile is stronger (2-1 in Croco-boy's favour)
Jozu and Marco
Shanks and Rayleigh
Pekoms seems like he would be hell to fight
2 years of SOLID ass training (excellent training at that) in preparation for the Grand Line and New World doesn't suddenly make you stronger than people who have been top tier or near enough, since before you were born imho.
^Definitely not Vergo or Crocodile
Who is stronger than luffy?
Zoro, mihawk, shiryuu (or swordmaster on the same level)
(Well haki is a form of will to fight too, but you see my point)
Crocodile is one of those characters with hax powers, sure now Luffy can hit him even without water, but if Crocodile grabs him he is done for.
It's about many ifs with Crocodile, would he be fast enough to grab Luffy? would Luffy's haki protects him against sand attacks or be effective in hitting Crocodile (like with WB and Aokiji)?
So I'm not that sure Luffy is so superior to Crocodile now, he had decent endurance back then too, Luffy pounded him left and right but it took a lot to put him down.
Fleet admiral/vice fleet admiral (Sengoku, Akainu, whatnot)
Dunno if Crocodile still has a chance
Likely more, but that's it for now.
It's hard to say really. We still haven't seen Luffy go all out. I mean for example whom on the list wouldn't take serious/ at least damage from a Gear Second Busoshoku gatling gun? Or a Busoshoku elephant gatling?
Man I mean, any armament gear second attack from Luffy would probably hurt like hell. Remember that we still haven't seen him use that on an actual opponent. Sure we've seen him use Armament, and we've seen him use gear second, but not combined. Just imagine the insane speed of Gear Second with Busoshoku.. Damn.
