Gol D. Roger
We've seen literally nothing from Gol, but he was the Pirate King so you can expect him to be pretty strong
Marco is Whitebeard's first captain, able to go toe-to-toe with admirals, and he's a phoenix. That's right - you know the immortal creature in mythology, that could never die? Marco is one.
Honestly, I'm voting Marco as I dislike voting people we haven't seen, and besides, how can Gol D. Roger kill someone that can never die?
I think Marco can only regenerate limited amount of damage. No DF is perfect, that's the main rule.
Hm, Marco tells Roger about Luffy and Roger retires from the tournament? Or Marco retires because he finds it pointless to fight his dad's rival? I find it hard to imagine a battle between those 2.
So, I can only hope my choice will be a troll.
Roger was equally with young Edward. This young Edward rapes all his commanders. nuff said.
I'm going to have to go with Roger here. Don't really like voting based on reputation, but Roger would probably win.
roger defeated WB,i'm sorry for marco,but ace's father should own him,according to the legend he wields...
Marco couldn't beat Kizaru, no way could he beat the Pirate King.
Dont forget, Roger would have been defeatet by Shiki, if it wasnt for a storm. And Shiki was defeated by Luffy. Can we agree Marco > Luffy?
Tournamentlogic it works in every direction.
Jolly Roger could have been defeated by Shiki's crew? Nah, I don't think so... Some of us could agree that Marco > Luffy but could you guys agree the Garp > Marco? Garp have been chasing Roger all the time but never caught him until he gave up because of the incurable sickness Roger got.
My vote goes to Gol D. Roger.
A > B and B > C doesn't make A > C, I just have to throw this out here.
We haven't seen Roger do anything and we don't even know how he defeated Garp, WB and so on. It could be like the way Shiki got defeated, even tho' it's unlikely, but we still don't know.
Personally I don't think Roger should have been in the Tournament from the start, he wins on his reputation and it may be with good reason, but we don't have anything as a ground.
This sums up perfectly why I voted for Marco. Luffy beat Enel not by strength, but by luck. Rubber > Electricity, and were Luffy to have any other fruit but the same strength he would have lost badly and died. Even in this tournament, Buggy beat Killer not by strength (It's buggy, seriously) but because his fruit is such a good counter. Luffy seems to be a lot like Roger when he was younger, and a lot of Luffy's matches have been either won or majorly affected by outside circumstances. We have no way of knowing if Roger was the same.
Luck can be trumped by being heavily outskilled. I believe Roger was WBs equal if not superior (even by a small bit) which should already put him in a greater league than Marco, that and when you think about it, even though Enel was rendered useless against Luffy because of Rubber, he still managed to give him a hell of a fight. If Rayleigh and WB are anything to go by, i have a hard time seeing how Marco could beat Roger.
Though thats if a real fight between them was to happen. In this case we have to go by feats and we have seen more of Marco than Roger... So Marco should IMO win
If the filler would count here, then we can say that Roger is a swordsman and that would differ from Luffy. We can also imagine that Roger has the Ancient Weapon which is something everyone wants and we could say that this is very powerful. Wealth? Fame? Power? Gol D Roger has 'em all!
