When Shiraishi takes off the golden gauntlet, all of his stats increase, so in reality, Shiraishi has a Power of 3.5 with the gauntlet on, but at least 4 or 4.5 Power with the gauntlet off.

Atobe has a Power of 3.5, which, if Shiraishi's example can be accepted, would mean that Atobe could defeat Higuma Otoshi regardless of whether he hits the grip or Fuji uses Higuma Otoshi.

I guess it depends on whether you want to say that it's the Bible which allows Shiraishi to defeat Higuma Otoshi, or whether it's merely possessing a Power of 3.5 or higher that's required to defeat Higuma Otoshi.
