This fight is pretty close, but like everyone said the numbers are a bit overwhelming for them. While one on one the Shichibukai (Aside from Moria I think) Are stronger than each Stern Ritter aside from Juha Bach, all at once just doesnt work out.
@GIRUGAMESH: I don't know, Guy was really giving Madara trouble for a second until his gate ran out, I was surprised. Speedsters and top tier physical fighters really will give him trouble from the looks of it. I don't like Naruto but I do love Guy and Rock Lee, I look forward to seeing whether they can kick more ass with the Red Beast thing.
Ok so did anyone else notice or did characters from One Piece and Bleach just get a huge chance against Madara and Juubito now? I don't want to spoil this next chapter for anyone, but for those who read it they know what I'm talking about
@bigz007: I actually hadn't thought about it, I figured the king was supposed to be the old warrior Karos (I think his name was lol) but then I started to put the time line together and was like 'Oooooh that makes sense' XD But I'm a little disappointed by what it looks like the fights are gonna be... Instead of Zoro and Luffy vs Fujitora and Doflamingo, it looks like it's going to be like this:
Luffy vs Fujitora
Doflamingo vs Karos
Zoro vs Pica :/
I really wanted to see if Zoro was on level with an admiral yet...
@Jinbeifan1: I don't know about that.
Kenbunshoku Haki is a form of Haki that allows the user to sense the presence of others, even if they are concealed from view or too far to see naturally.
Though the power allows the user to predict most attacks, it can be circumvented by various means. It cannot predict inherently random attacks; for example, Luffy managed to bypass Enel's Mantra by bouncing his fists off a nearby wall, to prevent himself and thus Enel from knowing where they would land. Tying in with the inability to detect random attacks, Kenbunshoku Haki seems to be linked to the target's own awareness of themselves and their surroundings. Enel failed to discern the presence of Luffy inside the giant snake Nola, only detecting him after he escaped. Similarly, Aisa could not detect how the battle was progressing with her Mantra while inside Nola and only found out what happened after she and Luffy escaped. It also does not make the user any faster than normal, so the user's ability to dodge is dependent on their speed; Enel was unable to avoid Luffy's finishing move because it was moving too fast, even though he was able to predict it. Likewise, Luffy's Gear Second was able to outpace Boa Sandersonia, despite her ability to read his moves. It also seems to falter if the user loses their concentration. Satori lost the control of his Mantra when Luffy unexpectedly brought the string of exploding balls right to him, enabling Luffy to grab him from behind when the smoke cleared, and Gedatsu lost to Chopper because he lost his concentration and his Mantra faltered.
- Shikai: The release command is "Shatter" (砕けろ, kudakero) and is used to both activate and deactivate it.
Enel didn't focus hard enough to discern the difference between the snake and Luffy, he was just focusing on what he could see on the surface. Aisa's abilities came natural, so she didn't know how to control it and only used it for dodging incoming danger (I think, I actually cant remember everything about that arc) I know it doesn't make users faster, it just helps them in battle see what's coming. It's up to the users to be fast enough to keep up with it. That's why the boa sisters couldn't beat Luffy, he was just too fast for them despite their haki. It does falter for some users in battle, but as shown if they're all focused on the fight they can still use it. Luffy didn't even have control of his haki when he fought Mihawk and foresaw what would happen had he tried a jet bazooka. Gedatsu was an idiot who lost focus easily lol
@luthluth: Uh he doesnt alter time and space, just the five senses so lol yeah bro it could work. Not to mention he doesn't even think of using KS while he's in this form, he's too full of himself to do so. Hell becoming that powerful probably destroyed his zanpakuto. Even if it didn't, he still never used it in that form
@luthluth: But that's enough, if you take away the perception of a haki user they know they can just rely on their observation haki, which will nullify KS to the top hitters here. and yeah I know, I was here during those flame wars XD
Yeah the team can take him down now. In fact if they do restrain him, Law could use Mes to take out the Hogyku couldnt he? Even if that wouldn't work, Doflamingo, White Beard, Law, Blackbeard, Kuma. All of them at once is too much for even him. They may not be able to kill him, but they can certainly incapacitate him. (No one uses that stupid reitsu crush as an argument anymore anyway :P)
@Nefarious: More like Sabo vs everyone and kicking their ASS fight XD I'm curious to who it will come down to in the tournament, while Rebecca is obviously the weakest she has her precog and will avoid the main fight at all times. Bartholomeo is more powerful than he looks, I'd like to see the limits of his barriers. Diamante's got a weird power that I dont really see as being that great, but he might be able to use it with haki and make it better...
@Zerogodlike: I know, with his armor on he's physically as strong as Spider-Man. But I saw a video of her getting stomped on by a large robot and still being intact so I assumed she might be around his strength physically :P
