Whether his statement is true or not doesn't really matter. He's already proven that he can put up a fight against Heracles. That's far more than what can be said for the Kings. Even with the new Air power up.
Whoa man, this is a HUGE stomp in favor of Meruem. He's better in every attribute. Speed, strength, DC, Durability, intelligence, etc. There is literally no way for Wesker to win this. His only chance would be to nuke him from afar but the OP say that they're face to face. Yeah, Meruem slaughters.
Yes I realize that Air is one of acacias dishes. But Air alone will not give them such a big power boost that it puts them in the same league as the 8 kings. And Blue already stated they he was just toying around. He said that if he meets it again he'll kill it. Now I'm not saying that Blue >>> Heracles but I am saying that they are in the same level. Which happens to be far above the 4HK. If Air alone was able to boost them to 8k levels then the entire Gourmet world will be a joke to anyone who has eaten just 3 of Acacias full course dishes.
Damn, that trailer looked pretty sweet. But there's a little worry I have. It looks like they dropped the turn based fighting style, which I love so much. It was used in my favorite RPG series like Dragon Quest and FF. Now it looks more Hack&Slash; but that can be seen as good or bad depending on what you like.
Eventually they will but as it is now, they're a long way off. No I don't think that Toriko will be the only one, he didn't even fight it in the first place. That was all Blue, who is separate from Toriko right now. I don't think any of the 4HK will fight the 8 Kings for a while. And I think my point still stands. Red is on the same level as the other appetite devils, who are all way below Blue. Don't get me wrong, I only mean strongest Oni out of the 4HK because that's who's in this battle. People like Midora and Jirou are likely way above even Blue Oni.
It doesn't matter if they used it on panel or not. Your last sentence is part of my argument. They have always been comparable to one another. And what has Toriko only been using? The Red Oni. The Red Oni is on the level of the other appetite devils but is nowhere close to Blue. Whether it be one or ten, they can't compensate for lack of power with numbers. The gap in power between Blue and the other Kings should be more or less the same as between Blue and Red. Also I don't think that Blue will be used again unless Toriko's up against an insanely powerful opponent like the Battlewolf, Blue Nitro, Midora, etc.
Yeah, actually Blue Oni is stronger than all the other appetite devils. Toriko's red Oni is on the same level as the other kings, but was instantly fodderized by Heracles. That's why he showed up in front of Blue. He knew he couldn't do anything so he gave up his control. Unless your trying to say that the other kings can put up a fight against Heracles, you can't really argue in favor of the team.
Well of course OP top tiers are above HxH. That much should be obvious. But the CP9 aren't top tier. What's a good durability feat for the CP9? I mean good enough to tank the rage canon. As far a I remember there isn't one.
I think Meruem can put up a better fight than some give him credit for. There's se decent feats above but the arguments I'm seeing could be said better. Meruem post-nuke has Youpis energy canon, and honestly I don't think that anyone in the CP9 can tank it.
