As usual it is a speculation thread so take it easy
luffy's extremely big bounty and thriller bark made me wonder
in the begining when luffy got a 300mil bounty we all agreed it was because of EL cuz his bounty surpassed bartholomew kuma's bounty and was close with donflamingo
BUT now luffy is yet to face gecko moria,another schichibukai and his bounty will propably rise up again if luffy defeats him
so is luffy on schichibukai level??? and what is the schichibukai level?? what is the marine level?? and what is the yonkou level??
before the bounties and gecko moria i believed that the SH had a long way to go to be somewhere near a schichibukai and that croc was an exception since his bounty was near 5 times smaller than donflamingo
also when the logia were introduced and luffy said that plenty of guys were stronger than enel in the sea i believed even more that there were techniques to harm logia without sea stone
but now it seems to me that every power has one or two guys that are way ahead of the others,i believe that mihawk and BB and maybe jinbei or the other that is unknown might the only capable of harming a logia and mihawk may be the only capable of doing that without a DF or sea stone within the schichibukai
also when the VA were introduced everyone thought they were too good for the SH but with the last events it seems they might be weaker than the cp9
i seem to believe this cuz if luffy is yet to defeat another schichibukai then indeed my thoughts are true and luffy deserves that bounty and zoro's and sanji's should be near to luffy
the schibukai=the yonkou but WB vs shanks split the sky with a single hit that clashed in each other's blade and if luffy is yet to defeat another schichibukai and believe me he is nowhere near splitting even a small cloud then phew must be on WB's and shanks' and mihawk's level (i mention mihawk cuz since shanks is a swordsman he is stronger and they were rivals once upon a time)
i think WB and shanks are way ahead of the other yonkou due yonkou=schichibukai and that the marines except of smoker and garp only the admirals and sengoku are in a big level and mihawk,BB and maybe jinbei or the remaining schichibukai are in a big level from the schichibukai
also remember what usopp said when aokiji showed up:
"Usopp: Then why is he HERE?!!
…he should be going after the big pirates worth billions!!!
G... GO AWAY!!"
so the question is where everyone from one piece stands in terms of power??
what do you think?? and who are the ones that are strong enough to fight a logia head on without a DF or sea stone??? even BB couldn't fight a logia without his DF,do you think aokiji can harm a logia even though he is one??? and do you think indeed only a few members of the 3 powers are light years ahead of the SHs?? and the pirates within these people could indedd worth billions??
