That'd be nice. If we ever saw Killer kicking at a damaging level that is. His attacks however are sword-based and that doesn't work against Buggy.
Fact is, anyone strong enough to get a bounty like the one Killer does doesn't neccesarily fight only using "sword-based attacks". We even saw Zoro, a swordsman, kicking shit quite a few times. We even saw that Sanji is pretty good with knives, even though he fights with "leg-based attacks".
And from what we saw a Killer, he's definitely strong enough to beat the shit out of Buggy without having to use any weapons. It's Buggy. He may be immune to cutting attacks, but any fighter with half a brain will find a way to work around it.
Nice one, but no. Like you also did with Sanji and Zoro, we should go by what we have seen in the manga. Sanji is a cook and can handle knives, mighty fine, we even saw him fight like that. And that's the key. We never saw Killer do something else than slice, we do not know any other ability of his, soundbased or sightbased or whatever.
What we did get to see is Buggy is pretty much immune against everything Killer has been seen doing and what's more Buggy uses tricks his opponents whenever he can. I don't see how Killer would win here without a fan-created attack.
I get what you're saying but it's just simplifying things. Would you say the same if it was Mihawk vs Buggy? Because we never saw Mihawk do anything other than slice or cut.
But of course, we all know that Mihawk could beat Buggy barehanded. Obviously, Killer is probably a lot weaker than Mihawk, but still, it's Buggy we're talking about.
I don't know, after all the chapters of One Piece, and all the fights, I'm a little surprised with your line of thought.
Assuming that He's a monster in strength as it should be since his reputation and being the second in command of a crew that is the direct rival of Luffy...I think it's safe to say that a kick from him is enough to take down Buggy.
Buggy has a cool DF, that's something that goes without saying (Is that the phrase, right? :S) It's charismatic and all that jazz...But Killer has shown that He's a pirate strong enough to be in the New World.
You just don't get a 200 million bounty by being a "one trick pony".
Although, I'm pretty sure that Buggy's bounty is at least as big as Killer's now. For plot and comical purposes, of course.
Well, 200 million isn't that big of a bounty. Zoro might have gotten something close to this before timeskip if WG didn't want to hide the fact that Mugivaras took out Moria...
Of course Buggy is a comical character, but still if Killer doesn't know about Buggy's ability before the fight, then he might have troubles.
The same Buggy in Impel Down was considerably stronger than when he fought against Luffy in East Blue.
His Buggy Ball was also quite powerful there, so I doubt it would be an easy fight for Killer.
Of course Killer should eventually win in 65 % of their battles, but still Buggy is a trciky bastard with an ability that renders useless Killer's swordsmanship skills.
Well, we know nothing about Killer apart from his bounty and that he is a swordsman, while we do know that Shanks without a sword is a Haki Master. The same goes for Rayleigh. Whitebeard without his DF is strong enough to stop a damn big ship with his bare hand and has his halberd (or whatever you call his weapon) and is also Haki Master. Well, we don't know much about Mihawk apart from him being the best swordsman currently.
We don't know how strong Killer is. We only know that pre-timeskip he was weaker than Zoro, but we don't know how good he is without his swords, thus it's a great speculation to say that he will still be a beast.
Buggy wins, as expected of one of Roger's Crew and who spent a lot of time in New World
Lol at poll results. You people have some serious problems.
We just shine in the awesomeness of the promised pirate king, captain buggy!
