As fo the Haki argument. Haki is not a fighting style in of itself, it is a supplement. Therefore no matter how amazing Shanks' Haki is, if his main weapon is a sword he is weaker than Mihawk.
As I want to respect my claim of not replying in the thread. Can you just further explain this? Haki looked to be a fighting style for Rayleigh.
Nice rebuttal in the Shanks vs Mihawk debate. I really wish I were apart of it. Don't let them BS you with the title thing. The only difference in his (Sekai Saikyō no Kenshi) and Whitebeard's (Sekai Saikyō no Otoko) is the 'Kenshi' (swordsman) and 'man' (otoko). Mihawk indeed is the World's Strongest Swordsman.
