I'll give it to Shanks, just because he's in his prime and Rayleigh is pretty much old
But neither these two showed all they have... Shanks for me
Both are very strong. I would go for Shanks since Rayleigh is getting old.
Since Rayleigh is getting old? Whitebeard was getting old too and look what he did. I'm not saying that Rayleigh would win, just that argument is kind of invalid to use alone.
Based on the same argument I made in the other thread, we have seen more from Ray, it's expected of Shanks to be probably to 4/5 characters in the series. But meh, I know Shanks has quite the popularity, despite that, Rayleigh for me here.
Rayleigh said he's getting to old to even think on defeat an admiral. Shanks stops the Fleet Admiral punch with only one arm and didn't even sweat.
Obviously Shanks wins this.
surely shanks! . that man is an emperor now,one of the 3 strongest pirates. notwithstanding rayleigh used to be stronger than him,now shanks is surely above him. shanks is very young: he arrived at sabaody only 12 years ago,so he is a new entry for the NW. yet,he is already one of the 2 strongest there.
If this was young rayleigh, i think he could win, as it is now, shanks is in his prime, rayleigh has been declining for a few years now, shanks has it
still going with the man who has some more feets then the other
rayleigh all the way
Rayleigh is old... and shanks lost an arm... both have massive Haki... but if haki is directly proportional to experience... I would say... rayleigh wins ,,, he swam across the calm belt.. that was just pretty cool...
Rayleigh himself admitted that he could just stop one admiral now, whereas shanks stopped akainu, without efforts! It's clear which one is stronger
I think Shanks wins here.
Rayleigh is really strong and was fighting on pair with an admiral. However Shanks stopped a war just by appearing there. Of course he was not alone but the marines still had all 3 admirals, Garp, Sengoku and the Shishibukai so they still could fight.
Do u all forgot their relationsship? It isnt even a fight, its just talk. Shanks would drink Sake with his old Vice-Captain and nothing more. Heck this would eventually go down, who could drink more and still being sober.... and seeing shanks more often drunk then rayleigh, ist rayleigh for me. :P
That's not how drinking works Sachsenhesse. The one who gets drunk more often will have a higher resistance, therefore Shanks will win. Tsk tsk tsk.
