About a week ago I read a chapter of one piece that was near the end of the thriller bark arc. Near the end when kuma attacks the strawhats and comes for luffy's head, zoro tries to fight him off. What's my point you ask? When kuma uses his pad cannon attack, zoro dodges them multiple times. The impressive thing about this is that kuma states right after zoro dodges one that the attack is air being propelled at light speed, and it's moving so fast that none of the strawhats except zoro can even see the attack. I'm not saying zoro has light speed combat speed, or that this is garunteed, but there is a lot of evidence supporting it. I can't post scans, but I marked the chapter; it's chapter 484 near the end of thriller bark. So does anyone agree? Or has this been disproven?

@akronawol17:

When you post threads on feats and battle related, if it deals one specific character that has a wiki page, put it in that thread. If it deals with something that doesn't have a wiki page or it deals with multiple subjects that has several wiki pages, then it goes in the general discussion.

I'll move it.

No, he don't. I think he was just aim dodging

Sorry about that, I'm not use to posting on anything aside from the battle forums section. And thanks again

He knew it was coming and dodged before it was shot and he was still catch in the AOE of the paw blast, of course he is not light speed or anywhere close. look at the upper pane for Kuma's laserl: he hears the sound “pipipipipi” then Zoro prepare to stand in the middle panel at the right of the last panel you can see that Kuma spammed the laser after he moved or it was at the same time. BTW And he would have been FTL if he did dodge it not just lightspeed. And if you wanna talk about Kuma's light being based of Kizaru's light and how Zoro and Luffy dodged that, note the keyword, BASED, hence not an exact replica, Kizaru’s “light”>>>>>Pacifista lasers, already proven several times in-story. Plus it would be inconsistent. Zoro being FTL would make kizaru slower than mid tiers. It is the same thing as Marco being lightspeed argument, they are not.

Added this thread to Facts and Feats. Make sure you contact me if you misspelled titles of the threads. I cannot fix the thread's title for you. It's not in my power. Part of the reason is that we're making a respectable community project. Misspellings will make it look bad.

@akronawol17:

Be careful of your thread titles. PM me if you do misspell thread's titles. I'll delete it and you can repost it. For this one, it's too late since it has comments on it. If you're not a native English Speaker, I understand because I'm one, too. It's tough dealing with another language.

No, zoro has no prep in dodging the first one at all. As soon as it's shot he barely has time to sidestep. And it was moving so fast that none of the strawhats could even see it. Also, my native language is English... I didn't misspell anything to my knowledge.

@akronawol17: You misspelled Roronoa in the title

Oh... Well, I thought it was spelled with an A instead of O. Guess I was mistaken...
