Round 1 Both are in character
Round 2 Both are bloodlusted
Fight takes place at
How does this end?
Both have the potential to one-shot one another and have some sort of advantage over the other that would make it hard for them to take one another out (Zoro with Observation Haki, Gin with his ability to fly). To be honest, I think this one's gonna be a bit too close for me to call.
@taichokage: well his speed is superior in movement, and I dont think we should doubt his stamina especially after thriller bark, and that was pre time skip. But yeah the problem would be landing a direct hit if he's in the air. but from what we saw of his 300 pound cannon it's a lot faster than his previous attacks, and stronger
The flying really hinders zoro here. His stamina and speed cannot be put into question especially from attacks that don't hit him considering he moves quickly with worse.
However gin should be able to take this if he just spams forever.
That is if he decided to do that. I doubt he would if he sees he is missing to much the logical approach would be to take the close combat option. No knowledge means he will probably take zoro as just another swordsman and fight him on the ground. Would he even start going all out against someone he took as a normal person?
Also could zoro's tornado get to him in the sky?
But yea gin could very well take this though zoro could take it as well if dude coudln't fly.
Gin probably wins, but it could go either way, Gin holds the advantage of flight as many have said, but Zoro still has his cannons and twisters, not to mention that Gin will have to be pretty high up to be able to stay out of his reach entirely, if Gin allows him to get close and duke it out with their swords he will get dominated, all in all it depends on their distance and if Gin takes to the air.
For IC I'd give it to Zoro. Dude is ridiculous in the speed and endurance department. I mainly say Zoro here because Gin can kinda get playful IC, which could work as Zoro play's he cards right he can get in and one shot.
Bloodlust I got to go with Gin. As long as he keeps his distance and spams he can keep Zoro at bay long enough to eventually skewer him.
