Pretty easy, I think. Helmeppo is the victim in this thread. Even with Kukri knives, Rob Lucci wouldn't even have to use Rokushiki, Lucky Roo may simply sit on him, and Sadi... well I'm gonna leave that to your imagination...
Goodbye, onion-head. I don't see Helmeppo beating one of the main Impel Down staff like Sadi (or the other 2 for obvious reasons).
what can lucky roo do? I vote him because he eats and stop. no wait,he's strong as he's in shanks's crew. so helmeppo!
sadi-chan is whack, she's out here. Helmeppo is garp student, coby fellow and a potential opponent for Zoro. He's not that weak and i'm pretty sure he trained like a crazy those 2 years with coby.
Helmeppo is a victim here as hoeru stated. He just can't do anything against his opponents here. He was just a useless sergant before timeskip, while his opponents are Rob Lucci (who seems to be second strongest in this fight), Sadi-chan who is one of the Impel Down third strongest currently now (and I believe third strongest in this fight) and an obvious victor for this group - Lucky Roo who is a member of Shanks' crew and seems to be quite strong for a New World standards.
sadi chan can't do a thing without her beasts, helmoppo's been training under garp for these 2 years, we already saw how much stronger he got in only few months so sadi chan is out.
Sadi is a guard in Impel Down. Even if she isn't the strongest out there doesn't meen that she is weak. Comparing her with Helmeppo is just absurd.
Helmeppo is damn weak. He iwas just a sergant. It's the lowest rank after normal Marine slodiers, so how come he is strong? I doubt that even after timeskip he can win against Sadi.
Exactly, the only hope to Sadi is being defeated on a masochist way. Helmeppo is being trained on Rokushiki arts and probably he awake his haki in the timeskip as Coby did.
Sadi is in control of those beasts and was seen whipping them. All she did was losing to Ivankov - the queen of all Newkama's with unrivaled strength that forced Sanji to wear women's clothes.
I guess this simply calls for a "BITCH PLEASE!" based on the facts we have.
Obviously people don't understand how this Tournament works! It's not about how you feel the character might have progressed during some perioud of time. This Tournament is about how strong a character was when he was last seen in manga.
Helmeppo was so useless, Zoro didn't even need to bother, when he was fighting him and as hoeru already stated he was defeated by Zoro like in 2 seconds. Also Helmeppo never used Rokushiki and never awakened Haki, so noone can consider this as an argument in their favour unless we see a character showing something new during the Tournament.
In the rules it is written that you can make a structured criticism to cheer your options. To me, characters who had being trained or have to develop by a plot excuse, are defensible. It is like Drake and Kidd who can destroy Yonko's ship and territories, they have to be reckoning.
I don't mind giving some characters the benefit of the doubt based on things like "the training they went through," since this whole tourney is just a judgment call.. but only within reason!
Helmeppo has a long way to go before he can take on a top guard at Impel Down.
If it was WB they attacked or Shanks's allies (if he does have some), I can guarantee you that these guys wouldn't be alive right now
