Monkey D. Garp
Monkey D. Dragon
we know nothing of dragon's strength,but he should be stronger than garp. ivankov,witnessing luffy's strength,said he had the same terrifying power of dragon,not to mention dragon is above kuma and iva herself. also,garp is too old now,as he said,he has become weaker...
Experience beats speculation. We know by reading and by reference of how powerful Garp is, but there isn't even a single reference of Dragon fighting anyone. Yes, he is most likely one of the top 10 fighters in the world but we can't prove it yet. Father beats the son.
Whitebeard was totally lured in by the marines.. because obviously in the wide open sea it seems impossible for marines to do anything to him... And even when they had their home ground with all walls rising.. 3 Admirals.. WB almost got them...
Garp- Hero of marines... along with sengoku captured Shiki (no 3 admirals and shit) ,,, Have cornered Roger (the pirate king) several times... on his own.. no home ground .. no luring out .. but simply cornered him
As for the Dragon being the most wanted man... he is definitely... But manga pretty much gives a clear indication that he operates from shadows... its like Batman.. robin hood.. for that matter... And pinning down Smoker was no big deal (it was looking big deal the time it happened in Manga) with Haki,,,, With luffy’s speed who knows even if he can pin down smoker for others to make a run ,,,
Voted for Garp..
Huh. Thought it would at least be closer - especially since more of the conversation was in Garp's favour...
Initially thought it would go towards Dragon, but also thought Garp was making a comeback based on later comments. I guess the people who didn't post mostly went for Dragon.
Hmm voters must have been of the I-don't-follow-One Piece-but-I-feel-like-voting-for-the-guy-with-the-cooler-name majority.
I think Dragon deserved to win. He's the "most wanted man in the whole world", for crying out loud. Normally, the Pirate King would be the most wanted. Dragon is more wanted than any of the Yonkou. Bounty generally indicates strength, so that would place Dragon at least around Yonkou level, if not above. Who knows where exactly, but he's damn strong for sure.
On a side note, I wonder if Dragon will end up being the final "villain" or something. As in, he wants to take down the World Government, but in a way Luffy doesn't want, and so Luffy ends up fighting him? Just a crazy idea.
The unpredicatability of voting (as long as it's not top tier vs fodder) is what makes the tournament worth watching and participating in. And since we lack info about powers of both, and they both are supposed to be top tier (Hero of Marines vs Most Wanted), it really isn't good to bash on the result like this.
