That rayleigh takes the deadly attack... "new generation will always be better" "the will of fire" (i know wrong manga ) but only this can or could save zorro in this round
As shown here he is willing to help them... and if he has got to let go of his life for his principles he will do it... but other than that..
Sengoku,Aokiji,Rayleigh > Zorro
but because of the plot and characteristics i can see:
Only because he would sacrafice himself for zorro and cover some attacks zorro couldn't defend
as i see it now, almost everybody already voted. this is going nowhere lol
I'm so glad to see logic won !
I'm really sad that Zoro is out, even if I voted on him. But relieved that this tournament proved not to be a mere popularity contest. Better luck next time Zoro
zoro is outtttta heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere
Sengoku's out now
1. Sengoku. He was the strongest Marine along with Garp pre-timeskip. He was already an Admiral during Roger's times. And during the War in Marineford he and Garp managed to handle BB and his entire crew even when BB got Whitebeard's DF, so I doubt he might loose to either Ao Kiji or Rayleigh.
2. Ao Kiji. Rayleigh barely managed to stall Kizaru and then escape and he said himself that he can't win against him as he is out of shape even though he is still considerably strong, so I doubt he can win against Ao Kiji. Even though the fight would be damn interesting and damn close.
Rayleigh and Sengoku are both old. Ao Kiji could fight Aikainu his narutal enemy for 10days. So i believe Ao kiji is the strongest here, his endurance will give him the advantage
1- Ao Kiji
Sengoku/Rayleigh. Those two are legend from the old era. Rayleigh was the 2nd man of Roger and Sengoku the 2nd man of the marine (after Garp). I believe those 2 are equals in term of raw power.Now let's imagine a fight between them. Rayleigh weapon are haki and his sword. not only he have the conqueror haki, he seems to be a very skilled swordsman. So far that's just theory but he was probably the best swordsman before. On the other side Sengoku DF turn him into a geant golden buddha (so i believe it's almost impossible to cut him), and his shockwaves have a good range. Rayleigh is fast and he have COO so he might be able to avoid Sengoku's shockwaves but the problem is how he gonna damage a body like Sengoku. Is his Haki strong enough to cut through Sengoku armor. If he was really a swordsman i believe yes. So i give the win to Rayleigh on this one.
Sengoku wasn't a leader of Marine for nothing. He should be the strongest one and the best strategist as well. His intellect was mentioned even by Newgate during the War in Marineford, so I wouldn't rule him out. And Garp and Sengoku weren't the strongest in Marines during Roger's era. It seems that the strongest guy was Fleet Admiral Kong who is now Pan Fleet Admiral.
We shouldn't forget that Sengoku should be Master of Haki as well as Rayleigh as he was an Admiral in Roger's era and we know that everyone starting from Vice Admirals must have Haki.
Argh dammit. It would've actually been more interesting if Sengoku was out and it was between Rayleigh, Aokiji and Zoro.
Rayleigh is getting old and he did indirectly suggest on SA when he was fighting Kizaru that he wish he could've helped the SH's at the same as fighting an admiral. Ok, maybe he didn't say that but I got the impression he was indicating to something like that. I think out of all the "old generation" of Pirate and Marine legends we've been introduced to so far; Rayleigh is the most dangerous of them all. He's probably got the best haki around and he can effortlessly take out many soldiers/pirates without much trouble. He has a lot of experience over the years and will be quite a difficult fighter to break down.
Sengoku is similar to Rayleigh in the sense that he too has a lot of experience, is recognised as a key asset of the marines and very powerful. His devil fruit ability is one of a kind which I still have doubts on tbh but it's clear he can KO some of the most dangerous criminals around with ease. It's actually embarassing that he didn't continue pursuing or taking care of the Blackbeard Pirates during the end of the Marineford War. He should've taken care of them while the admirals focused on WB & co. Oh well.
Aokiji has a pretty cool devil fruit ability and he obviously is a good haki user. We've seen him countless times against various opponents mainly during the Marineford War arc and he definitely seems to be the type to have a lot of stamina. Fighting stamina if there is such a thing. So I reckon he could hold his own against the other two. However, I would still consider Sengoku and Rayleigh too much of a burden for him. Kizaru had his work cut out for him against Rayleigh on SA and that admiral has been around far longer than Aokiji. I think Aokiji has still much to learn and Rayleigh would defeat him in this instance.
I vote for Sengoku and Rayleigh.
IMO, legendary zoan > logia. Besides, Sengoku was Fleet Admiral, which puts him above regular admiral. He's fighting since Roger's time and is probably the strongest marine in the manga.
Rayleigh didn't show much, but against Kizaru he seemed to have the upper hand. Even without a devil fruit (as far as we know) he has powerfull haki, skill and tons of combat experience so I think he can defeat Aokiji
so my fav char lost already ... but with that monster group u cant help it,ill say rayleigh is the strongest here,since i put him on the same lvl as shiki or maybe a lil stronger, since garp and sengoku were needed to capture shiki..i see sengoku a lil below ray
And here I was shocked with Enel and Dofla in the same group.
But I don't want to kick out either of the 3! Why, cruel world?
