@phantomrant: So you can't be so easily provoked with "I own you" and similar :-) ? Well that's good, now we can get serious. Before we start I want to tell you that I will use capslook to emphasize important things, not for shouting.
First thing which I wanted to point to you is, that The World is less durable than Star Platinum (since you're refering to Stands stats from databook as you're argument base). The World has C(rap) for durability which means average(and IS ON THE SAME LEVEL AS DURABILITY OF HUMAN BEING), SO wORLD IS ACTUALLY LESS DURABLE THAN DIO), while Star Platinum has A for durability (which means very good). By the way it was stated in both manga and anime that World has lesser durability than Star Platinum, while Star Platinum has lesser range. So you see if Star Platinum is unable to attack powerful enough to destroy a building, than World will be unable to stop even LESS POWERFUL ATTACK. I think we both agree (stating the opposite would be silly), that characters in Gauntlet 2 (except Alucard) have destructive power far greater than that. SO YOU CAN'T DENY THE FACT IF THEY LAY ONE HIT ON DIO HE IS FINISHED. Even Alucard would be able to deliver a fatal blow with one hit. Also going by the stat book (SINCE IT'S THE ONLY SOURCE STATING STAR PLATINUM IS FTL, WHICH YOU USE FOR YOUR CASE THEREFORE I CAN ALSO USE IT FOR MY CASE). By the way by same databook it was stated that Star Platinum is the strongest Stand there is. Therefore World can't dish out more damage than Star Platinum (building buster at best). ALSO HE WON'T BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING TO DIO'S OPPONENTS IF THEY ARE 10M OR ABOVE, SINCE HIS RANGE IS ONLY 10M AND HE BECOME WEAKER WITH DISTANCE BEING CLOSED TO 10M.
Ichigo has durability far above building level. He tanked Monster Aizen's Fragor without great effort ( only had scortched arm) and that attack is far above anything any Stand can do and even current is close to it. And Dante at full power is above building level by large margin(based on the brief research i did about him) and the fact that he has feat of tanking a huge explosion. So you're arguments fall in water completely.
- his eye liquid was stated to be powerful enough to slice stone. Everyone in second gauntlet have durability much greater than that (even Alucard)
Their durability is higher than a thin, concentrated, pressurized supersonic water beam that sliced through stone? Prove it.
ABOVE ARE YOU'RE WORDS(WHEN YOU QUOTED ME) WHICH ARE BOLDED. AS YOU SEE YOU WERE REFERING TO SECOND GAUNTLET. So don't try to "slip away" now. Also you stated this:
The World is stronger than Star Platinum who has a strength feat I've described earlier
As I posted Star Platinum was stated to be the strongest Stand. So you lying again.
Also: 1. Why is Dio being physically stronger than Tarkus important if he's not destructive with it? Simple. He punches holes. Unless scenario 1 characters have city block durability, they'll have a hole through them. Nothing more, nothing less.
If character A needs city block durability to endure a fight with character B, that implies that character B has city block destructive power (at minimum). You're words again and you lying again. Those were some of your lies I wanted to emphasize.
Stands augument stats of their users by large margin. Stating the opposite you just prove that you haven't read the manga (or payed attention while reading). Jotaro and every other Stand user (except Joseph who knows ripple also, Dio, Iggy and Vanilla Ice ) are regular humans. There are numerous examples of that. Jotaro trying to kill himself with handgun, Dio atempting to slice his head, Abdul stating that Magician Red will protect him from being stabbed ... There are tons of example and it's totaly silly asking me to prove obvious thing. Since like I said there are tons of examples users stating(or being shown on panel) that they need Stands to protect them. Probably the best examples are the ones where Stand users are killed afetr their Stands are Koed or destroyed. Anyway that was regarding some previous statement of yours.
I want you to post me feats of Jonathan and Ceasare which can be presented as light speed feats. Even better I want you to post me a scan which states that they moved at light speed. This will be Point A for you to prove. About Cars feat being and outlier. He was an able to catch up with 30's aeroplane and yet he is able to react FTL ??? How can he move one part of his body at subsonic speed faster than eye) and another FTL (billions of times faster) ? That's insane and silly. Reactions can't be that greater than movement speed. And ALSO POWERSCAILING FROM THAT FEAT FAILS. SINCE THAN IT WOULD MEAN HULK HAS FTL REACTIONS AS WELL SINCE HE IS ABLE TO TAG SILVER SURFER, NO MATTER SPIDER-MAN BLITZES HIM.
About Ripple augumenting someone's physical stats. Prove it ? Post me a scan which confirms. Too bad you can't since nothing in entire manga states somehting like that. Read chapters 23 and 24 of Phantom Blood http://www.mangahere.com/manga/jojo_s_bizarre_adventure/v003/c024/ or read this arcticles http://jjba.wikia.com/wiki/Hamon and http://www.narutoforums.com/showthread.php?t=190239 . So you're caught lying again. Also if Joseph wasn't a regular human this would be extremly graphic (refering to violent scene)
and yet it isn' graphic (his leg is intact). By the way it's obvious that Joseph didn't hold back. It was a serious kick. And don't come with "incosistency" since there are tons of similar examples in both Part 1 and Part 2.
Haha, so now you're only argument for Dio being FTL is that he was able to react to Emerald Splash, even regular human Jotaro was able to evade (and it wasn't feat of SP, since Star Platinum only blocks attacks). To bad Hierophant Green only has B for speed (which stands for good and for sure can't be Light Speed or above), therefore is weaker than Star Platinum. No to mention that his physical stats is poor. He is weaker than Noriaki physicly. All I can say about this is "good try" .
Furthere. Only Stands stated so far to be FTL are Star Platinum and Silver Chariot. The World has also A for speed and it was stated to be similar to Star Platinum. But it wasn't stated that World is FTL no where (manga, anime or databook). It's simply your failed powerscaling. I want you to post scan which states that World is FTL. This is Point B which you need to prove.
Inconsistency is a lame argument. Since this manga has single author who knows power levels of his characters. More likely is "certain guys overhyping the feats too much" than author being inconsistence. And in case you try to use DBGT as counter-argument. I must tell you that DBGT is not made by Akira Toriyama.
Durability matters for both Stands and users. Since if Stand is injured so will be the user and opposite. This doesn't aply only to Silver Chariot and The Fool. Not to mention that Dio is like a pidgeon to anyone from Gauntlet 2. And World is even worse. So it really doens't matter if World is thought form or not. He won't be able to stop anything guys from Gauntlet 2 dish out.
So you're only argument for guys from Gauntlet 2 is blood freezing. I already stated that it didn't gave much trouble to the peak human Jonathan. You're avoiding that. Well than prove to me that it will effect anyone from gauntlet 2. I want scans and not you're fanfiction. This is Point C which you need to prove. To sum it up this "hax" is useless in Gauntlet 2. Alucard will show him what true versitle power set is. Too bad he won't get to Ichigo, Luffy and Naruto to see other forms of ''hax''
As for Stingy Eyes and guys from Gauntlet 1. Check my first post and you will see that I stated only Luke Cage(who should defeat Dio) and Spidey should be problem to him. Although, now I think that Blade with his gadgets could also be a major problem. The hardest thing so far cut with Stingy Eyes is stone pillar (therefore you can't make asumption that it can cut steel or something more durable). Luke Cage has body far more durable than stone. His skin(even eyes) is as durable as titanium steel (much harder than regular steel), therefore no chance in hell for Stingy Eyes to pierce him. Not to mention that he is 25 tonner and could chop Dio's head easily. Freezing won't help since Jonathan endured it, and Cage endured similar attack without effort. I stated Spidey should give him a good fight , but I didn't stae who will win. Anyway I think that Spiderman should win. His much faster in reactions (supersonic) while Dio is subsonic (unable to evade subsonic gun). Even in movement speed Spidey is faster and is much more agile than Dio. Has wide set of abilities(spider Sense) which will give him and advantage. And has strength to challange Dio. More likely he is stronger than Dio(wallbuster without the Stand).
If you don't prove Points: A, B and C it would be clear that you gave up and that you're posting false info.
P.S. All of my statements are perfect clear (unlike yours which tend to contradict eachother - this is gramaticly correct, by the way) so don't twist my words.
