I've always said this.But more canon than the opinions of NF posters
Nope, they're the same level of canon: Not.
This is what happens if you don't get paid enough for OT.IMO it is clear someone like Shanks is stronger than Kizaru.
What does shanks have that Kizaru did not?
There is no passion!!!!!
There is no aggression!!!!!
What the hell is wrong with these admirals????
Get out of Navy HQ now!!!!
Just need to retire!!!!!!!
Back in the day some people were going with Admirals ~ Marco, due to a misunderstood Databook statement. Good thing the community grew out of that phase though.No wonder they're called the "Admiral Band".
Reminds me of another band which also had 3 glorified idols.
Any of the following moments should have shut down what should never have been a debate:
> A retired old white-haired 1st mate went toe-to-toe with Kizaru who was later held at gun-point by another 1st mate
> A different old white-haired man, injured and way past his prime, rag-dolled probably the strongest admiral and died standing
> A 1-armed man casually blocked probably the strongest admiral's direct punch with the flat end of a blade after holding back Kaido
Never mind all three together. And that's not even mentioning obvious portrayal indicators...
Back in the day, weren't people even debating 2-3 admirals vs an old WB? lol.
Nah, that doesn't work. Shiki was extremely old & rusty , crippled, & tortured in Impel Down for decades when Luffy fought him. He could easily just have lost majority of his strength like Chinjao to the point Lao G could fodderize him.Nah it's just that we don't take movies as canon. Otherwise pre TS Luffy should've been close to top tier lvl already since he beat Shiki.
It seems all Admirals resort to is underhanded tactics. Sniping YCs while they’re distracted, bullying weakened and recovering YCs, tricking Yonko underlings into stabbing them and weakening them, and then running away with their tails between their legs when a Yonko challenges them to a fair battle.Spoiler:
