    How strong can he become with a legendary sword like Escalibur ? Do you think we will see Escalibur in NNT or we will see it in Nakaba's next shonen manga as Arthur being the MC and not Meliodas ?

    He's incredibly young and nowhere near his prime at all. Physically his strength is already eclipsing just about every other human despite being new to battle. Then he has some enormous magic power level + he's also possibly invincible.

    It may be saved for the next manga he wanted to do but it's obvious that Arthur will be insanely op. I think Excalibur will be even better than the sacred treasures, so I expect him to be a monster if he starts using it.

    He'll surpass Mel and the rest some day,but I'm not sure if it will happen in nnt or in the Knights of the round story that The author wanted to do.

    If He surpass Mel ( not counting Evil Mel because he is a tier on his own ) and the rest, it will be not be in NNT for sure, the last saga of the manga will start soon.
    When he will get the title of " main character " in his own story that he will surpass anyone in the NNT manga.

    Nakaba is imo better off writing a side story or a sequel for Arthur (and by that I mean ten volumes tops) that focuses on him in his adult years and his adventures. But knowing the classic battle shounen recurring theme he has in the series, most of Arthur's strength is gonna come from within and not necessarily from Excalibur. That sword is just going to be a catalyst for his greatness.

    If Nakaba is consistent with his legendary hype, Arthur will at least live up to be EoS Mel level if not above.

    This would only be possible if Escanor was based on Uther Pendragon. The problem is that Escanor seems to have zero in common with Uther.

    There is however Ambrosius Aurelius (in Welsh Emrys Wledig), Uther's brother, who is the basis of another character in arthurian legend called Merlin Ambrosius ( in Welsh: Myrddin Emrys ), Emrys meaning immortal, which is what Merlin seems to be, and Aurelius being derived of aureus, meaning golden.

    All I get from that is that Nakaba based Escanor on some of Merlin's older names. Which would explain their close relationship. There is no base on either of them being the parent of Arthur though.

    But isn't Escanor already based on his own existing mythical character?

    There's two Escanors actually, Escanor le Grand who shares his power with Gawain, as in his power maxes out with the sun etc. He gets killed by Gawain for kidnapping Arthur's female cupbearer. And Escanor le beau who is the nephew of the first Escanor who becomes friends with Gawain, but doesn't get killed by him.
    Our Escanor is prolly a mix of the two.


    I agree with @Last of the Arrancar, there's little to no links between Escanor and Uther Pendragon.As for Escanor being related to Arthur somehow, I'm fairly sure that he would know it if he had a kid with Merlin or something like that. Unless she did it behind his back or something which is way too shady.

    I'm not even sure if Nakaba is going to have the same origin for Arthur in this, it most likely won't be the case since he was conceived through rape. Uther disguised himself as Ygraine's husband and Arthur was conceived, and Merlin played a huge part in the deception since he's the one who made Uther take on the appearance of Ygraine's husband. So as far as shady things go I doubt we could see that happen in the manga, so of course that should apply to Merlin here. Although we still don't know if Arthur was raised by his real father, Uther, or he was adopted by Sir Ector, who also happens to be Kay's father.
    We did see Kay but it's not clear if he's Arthur's real brother, or his adoptive one.I don't think there's enough room in the manga to explore Arthur's past in depth, so if he ever gets his own manga after NnT ends then we could learn more about Arthur and his relatives, like Uther but also Morgan le Fay which I really do hope will be introduced at some point.

    I was just trying to find some connection, but came up empty :p

    And we should not even want Nakaba to be too faithfull to the old myths, that shit is depressing ....

    I just think King Arthur from Mythology.
    His potential is most likely the highest in the series.

    Really hard for me to see Arthur even with Excalibur beating Escanor The One. Though I guess we need to see The One's limit (he took out AM Meliodas pretty casually).

    And Post Purgatory Ban could potentially still be the strongest human as he doesn't need to rely on a weapon like excalibur (though his sacred weapon he hasn't gotten back yet could potentially give him a very broken ability). If they were to fight Ban could telekinetically snatch Excalibur away from Arthur so he can't use it, even if he wouldn't be able to wield it himself. Or Ban could just stat drain Arthur until he's too weak to properly wield Excalibur.

    Ban's previous Stat Drain limit was enough to drain 2 of the 10 commandments to half power (Galan and Merascylla), his post purgatory Stat Drain limit should be far above that. And of course with Hunter Festival he can drain Arthur instantly rather than it being done over a long period of time.
