Well Kuma is faster than Claire. And Zoro could react to him. Claire could very well be faster in movement but Zoro not only has the raw strength advantage, but has the feats to react to faster than Claire.
After just catching up, Elizabeth from Nanatsu no Taizai. The only character thus far that I don't particularly like from the series. She isn't on par with some of these characters listed already though. Also wanted to throw in Wanze from One Piece thankfully his screen time was not long.
Some steel Submarines get crushed at merely hundreds of meters of water pressure. That's why we still know next to nothing about the deep sea. Zoro was down thousands of meters. As if surviving it wasn't impressive enough, he exerted enough force under that much pressure to cut through a tentacle several times as long as their ship. I really think it is Claire who is outpowered here.
Yeah even Gotenks' punch which would probably be country level in potency and left the massive crater didn't planet bust. Buu's punch wasn't that far off. He almost punched Gohan through the planet but that still wasn't quite a planet level punch. Maybe if he struck the ground directly. Regardless I wouldn't say characters this early on had anywhere near that strength.
To be fair that's not too uncommon in the likes of Bleach or Nanatsu no Taizai which I just got into. They don't get calced to such levels though. Not that I'm saying the Claymore calc is necessarily wrong, it's just I don't see it with other series overwhelmingly.
Not really. The current #1 and 2 were killed. The remaining Claymore top tiers were rescued and outperformed by the 7. They are stronger than the current Claymore. Miria even took on nearly the whole organization by herself while holding back and was dominating, only being beaten when that one put her in that illusion.
That is a fair assumption. We know that most of the Bishokukai got stronger. But we'd have to assume how much stronger they got. It is reasonable to assume that Barry is stronger than any Scum beast given his rank, it's just he is featless since the Century Soup arc. By powerscaling then yes Natsu shouldn't beat any Branch Chief.
