To be honest, I'm a bit surprised there isn't already a thread like this. Perhaps because Escanor (the last sin) was only introduced recently?
Anyway, this is about the plausible ranking of the sins. All things considered (their strength, abilities, ST etc.) how would you rank them? Ofcourse it will be speculation to a large extent but everyone probably already has an opinion about it.
For me its:

aw i thought this was ranking the sins's sexiness.
i'll put my list here regardless
*Official* Ranking of Sexiness
1 - Gowther (Gowther is love, Gowther is life)
2 - Escanor (Muscle Form)
3 - Merlin (Thirst Incarnate)
4 - Apron Ban (Ladies? )
5 - Diane (Cute, but no my type)
6 - Regular Ban (you know...)
7 - Meliodas (I'll leave him for Elizabeth)
8 - Weak Escanor (He is adorable, but not sexy)
9 - King (no)
10 - Fat King (Just no)
I'll add my power ranking after Edinburgh's Vampires Part 3 is released on March 25th and we see what Escanor can do.
Lol. If I were ranking sexiness, probably be the same but I'll swap Merlin and gowther.
This is pretty hard. So many things can be taken into consideration. But with all things considered, I'd go with this list:
*Escanor is mostly unknown, but we can assume his physical ability is great.
Invasion is kinda OP, especially if we take Gowther's power growth without his meds into consideration. The author himself finds ways to keep Gowther out of fights because most things could be ended easily with Invasion.
3: Diane (only when her hair is down and she's serious)
Everyone else ain't crap.
There is a tier list discussion thread but since this one is only about the Sins.
2.Merlin: Because of hype.
3.Gowther: He has arguably better feats than Merlin.
6.Ban: Only because he has not his ST.
I prefer to wait to see what Escanor's Magic but he is clearly N.2 in terms of Physical strength. I am sure that he is stronger than Diane at least, maybe it's just a matter of match ups too.
i'ld say as fighters 1.Meliodas,
2.Merlin and Escanor,
though its possible that King going all out would be at the same level as Meliodas, or at least Merlin and Escanor. Hopefully the next chapter will showcase that.
King already went all out during the final fight with Helbram where Diane was injured, he is no more hiding his true power.
Well gowther is low on my list because while invasion is pretty powerful, I believe it wouldn't easily catch sin caliber fighters in a serious match. Well, it could possibly mean game over if it hits. Also due to the fact that Diane in human form seemed to tie with gowther. They both obviously weren't aiming to kill but they must have been serious to an extent so they probably also weren't holding back.

I believe his hijack works on things like golems or so. It shouldn't work on hellblaze or chastefiol for example. He is a doll but he isn't indestructible.
It was a short fight which was interrupted and there was no way for Diane, who was weakened and without her weapon to win this though her form had its advantages, she would have been unable to dodge like that in Giant form. Gowther is similar to King, he can spam his arrows with ease. During their training even the agile Ban could not dodge all of King's attacks.
Not that I am saying that it would be easy but his ability is too hax, there was no reason for Gowther to stay on standby during the fight with Hendricksen but he only transmitted informations.

Was is it interrupted? iirc when Mel and co got there, it was already over and diane had managed to get some sense back into gowther. I agree his ability is indeed hax, but it probably can't hold some of the sins for long.
His greatest move (so far) would be Nightmare teller. I doubt that could hold demon Mel, Merlin should be able to erase it using absolute cancel as well. Escanor's dual personality might help (debatable but somewhat plausible imo)
Diane and Ban might not have a counter for it though and unknown for king. Chastefiol might be able to do something. However, for nightmare teller, gowther might need physical contact (like with Dreyfus) and both apparently freeze when it is used.
Invasion attacks mind and spirit but we have already been introduced to spirit stat levels with Balor's eye power. Perhaps having a certain spirit level allows one to be able to break out of invasion attacks (although repercussions like physical and mental exhaustion probably remain).
The fight was finished in my opinon. From the looks of things, Gowther stopped fighting of his own volition. He was tattered, but otherwise unharmed. Diane, on the other hand, looked like she got physically injured as she was struggling to get up a bit. Add that to Gowther's final attack which apparently erased Diane's memory, I'd say Gowther got the better of her in that fight.
Seeing as how Gowther specified the amount of Spirit needed to withstand Blackout, I'd assume he can scale it as much as he wants. Although it was in the start of the series before the stats, we've seen that both Mel and Diane are susceptible to illusions.
