Squard is a stellar example of WB taking a hit (from a dirty ally sneak attack btw which nobody saw coming) and still donning that stab like a man.
Big Mom has fallen on her face and has literally, literally had her butt handed to her by the weakest members of the Strawhat crew.
I completely fail to see why Nami's attack is more significant than Squard's. Big Mom effectively shrugged it off in the last page of the chapter like a (wo)man.
True but if she's in the right mind then the amount of people able to fight for hours with her to get to that point and deny her food imo is basically nobody lol
Yeah, the amount isn't a lot lol. Other Yonko, maybe admirals. But if she had her monster hard body all the time, then she would undoubtedly be the strongest Yonko (I know, heresy), and no one would be able to put a scratch on her.
Nami, Brook(especially Brook) and Chopper do not have an advantage over her Devil Fruit power though.
Yes they do. Big Mom's power is a lot more than taking other people's souls. Brook especially has an advantage, his Devil Fruit renders him the only one able to cut her special homies. Nami can match up well with her storm powers. Jinbe has an advantage over Prometheus. Plus they're fighting in the ocean, which strengthens him and weakens her.
Also, she's only been shown taking people's souls when they're running away from her. None of the Straw Hats have tried to run.
Whitebeard would sink the ship with one of his Earthquake punches. Easy.
Did you…completely miss why Big Mom isn't doing that? She wants cake, not destruction. And the Straw Hats would be at a loss to prevent her from bisecting the Sunny if they didn't specifically target the weaker Zeus.
I agree but oda is choosing the wrong characters here, if it was the monster trio then maybe I would accept it…
but its brook and chopper, both got destroyed by pero not too long ago, why brook speed didn't help him against pero?
if he wanted them to shine then oda should've made them look better before this...
brook and chopper are too weak to do anything against a yonko and that's a fact, their performance here make BM look bad more than it make them look good...
Brook performed well here because he was attacking a homie. Perospero is not a homie. Start actually looking at matchups and not throwing people on power scales. Big Mom explicitly said that Brook couldn't put a scratch on her before, and he didn't do that this time either.
Aight, call me back when Big Mom actually dies, then we can compare notes.
Big Mom has shown amazing durability but not so much in terms of attack. I want to see why she's a Yonko… of course we saw her strength in the flashback but I want Big Mom to seriously fuck shit up on a mass level. Maybe because she thinks the cake is on the Sunny and that's why she hasn't just broken the ship into pieces, because she's more than capable of that. Getting a bit tired of BM yelling "wedding cake", getting knocked back but then continuing her pursuit. It's been like this for like 10 chapters now.
It's exactly because of that. It's because the complainers think all battle situations are the same that they ignore every single context of this fight and wonder why Big Mom isn't acting like some of the other villains of the series.
Luffy was an extremely good match up against Enel yet Enel still found ways to get around that disadvantage of him. Luffy was under water in a freaking bubble and he still made Hody look like an amateur.
Match ups do not matter when the difference in strength is humongous. Oda has made that perfectly clear multiple times.
You're right…which is why Big Mom is still going strong at the end of the chapter. All the matchups have allowed the Straw Hats to do is briefly catch Big Mom off-guard by making her homies liabilities. And when a character's focus isn't on fighting, chances are they don't perform as well in a fight.
This only confirms that admirals are above yonkous. Kizaru, serious fujitora and akainu himself would make luffy search for a new crew by now if one of them was on the ship instead of BM.
Akainu would be a tad bit of trouble if he gets knocked into the ocean. None of them would be able to take out Zeus. Fujitora is a living conductor with his sword. Akainu and Kizaru would only make Prometheus stronger. The admirals wouldn't care about the Sunny being destroyed whereas the Straw Hats would.
There is so much more to a fight than simply strength clashing with strength. Strength isn't even a catch-all for everything a person is capable of doing. Nami is physically weak but can work well against weather abilities. And I definitely don't want Bleach-type BS where the opponent is better than a weaker character in absolutely everything, that's just completely boring.
