    It will never happen but which category of DF will assist Zoro in becoming an all round fighter who can deal with all kinds of opponents.

    Or will a DF will be an hindrance for someone like Zoro relying purely on swordsmanship skills?

    A purely physical DF. Burndy World's fruit would make him god tier instantly, although I guess it isn't canon. If the Ton Ton or Kilo Kilo fruits can increase the mass of objects, they would be great as well. Otherwise, it would probably be best with a random Zoan.

    best df for any swordsman is buggy's fruit.

    he doesn't need lethality and he doesn't need added destruction.

    He can't be cut haki or not. His power allows him to separate so how would haki affect that in any way?

    He doesnt need any DF and shouldn't get one cuz practicing on the DF will hinder his ability and wastes valuable time he could be spending to improve his sword play. So its better for him to stay w.o a DF so he can focus more on his goal.

    Not if the swordsman wants to fight anyone who isn't a swordsman. If he for example wanted to solo the marine HQ and all of the Yonkou at the same time, Buggy's DF wouldn't help much.

    Luffy's power allows him not be hurt by blunt damage unless touched with haki, so I assume someone with buggys power would be cut when touched with a haki blade :catshrug

    The weakness in Zoro's style is his limited agility. A opponent with fast movements and attack is more challenge for Zoro than a head on strength battle. Oda till now has not given an opponent to Zoro who is extreme mobile.

    I don't see how Buggy's DF adds to Zoro's fighting style. He can always parry any cutting attack directed at him

    Zoro vs Braham
    Kaku vs Zoro part 1?
    Zoro's fighting style is too complex for gimmicks like agility to take effect.

    Zoro vs Ryuuma shows us that fast movement and attacks plus comparable strength means nothing because he's such a stout character. Zoro has literally never been beaten in a straight up power vs power regardless of the momentum.

    His long range attack nullify his lack of personal long distance speed.
    His short burst are underrated and up there with any top tier. (Dodge Kuma's light speed paw cannons) * (was so fast against ryuuma franky couldn't even see what happened)

    Zoro was struggling to block multiple air slashes from Kaku and took many hits. Even in the latest chapter he couldn't parry all nails and took hits.

    Zoro's strength is his phhsical endurance, attack lethality, fast reactions and fast burst speed. As shown against Pica, Zoro would not have won the fight by himself if Pica decided to run away. Therefore mobility is important factor.

    Zoro struggle to parry a rain of air slashes. No one is blocking that.
    Everything else was light work.

    He couldn't parry because he was actively putting himself in harms way. And the window of defense was too small (a dogs back) Take away those two elements and he's not getting tag. Not to mention, no one is parrying that.

    Zoro's strength is most defintely the things you mention. It's just the examples you're using to make a point about mobility don't really make sense.

    Pica is mountain size entity. If every step is town level then it's not really on Zoro as a combatant.

    Just put Mihawk in Zoro's position. Would he be injured by nails! Would Mihawk let Pica escape!?

    That tells that the gulf between Zoro and Mihawk is still very big. Zoro has some limitations which need to be overcome.

    Can you all imagine what a Goro Goro zoro would be able to do? holy shit that shit would be insane. santoryu coming at you at like a lightning. + his insane durability that already exists accompanied by a logia. he'd be some akainu tanky kind of shit with insane attack damage. every time he slashes lightning strikes at the same time. goro goro zoro would be unstoppable man

    Logia with high mobility and attack power like electricity or light would make Zoro OP. Range is Zoro's greatest weakness imo as he has to be close to do any significant damage to non-fodder.

    Because it allows one to hurt Logia's who would otherwise be intangible, so the though behind it is perhaps it would do the same to buggy.

    true

    but under this logic - Kizarus fruit would be even better & faster for Zoro .. and it can even make swords !


    although even w/o Zoros case I already consider Kizarus fruit slightly above Enels in terms of purely fighting/damage/speed (not counting "utility" or prep with Maxim)

    this may change if we ever see post-skip Enel

    Zoro separates himself and still proceeds to cut said individual.


    Free arms so he can trigger attacks from virtually any angle.

    Enither Logia or Paramecia.

    Imagine a 3k World with the quake fruit or 1080 PC with Light/Lightning :bury

    If EOS Zoro one of Light/Lightning/Quake, he would easily be PK level.

    Gonna go with Logia, He would be invincible with light.

    Kidd's magnet fruit, suddenly he can be a kyutoryu wielding swordsman in base-form and then awakened he calls forth; Unlimited Blade Works. It'd be a fairly nice compliment to his sword techniques being able to freely manipulate them without actually physically wielding them.

    Paramecia tend to make fighters more versatile, especially when you include Awakening and mixing the fruit powers with haki

    What type? I'll be damned ... I think it's Logia. But only because Zoan only furthers his strength(Which isn't what he needs) and Paramecia is a bit of a gamble.

    Let's analyze this from a game perspective. Zoro is effective in attack, has poor defense(He's a tank, which means he can take a lot but he is still getting hurt) and his mobility is kinda meh. His prefered is Close Range but he can go to Mid Range too. Any Logia pretty much would have improve somewhat his mobility(If not outright give him godly travel speed like Enel or Kizaru), augment his DC and give him a Long Range alternative.

    But what exact DF ? I'd go for some Paramecias, one Logia and one Zoan. First you get Noro Noro no Mi, with that he could just attack while making his enemy slower and slower with each attack and imagine him being able to perform a combo that all adds up at once. Pretty OP stuff right ? Next we have Ope Ope no Mi, I don't need to tell you why it's so damn powerful and why he'd be OP with it, then Bari Bari no Mi, which amps his defense, making him being able to optmize the "Going all out" if only he made an armor shaped Barrier and went totally on the ofensive. The Logia would be Goro Goro. The Zoan would be Marco's DF. Imagine Zoro not having to worry about getting injured ? Imagine having Zoro to be able to fight 4 fights in a single arc.

    A stamina monster like Zoro with ope ope no mi would be too OP (except against buggy) because that is one fruit which can be naturally incorporated into swordsmanship abilities. Not to mention the added benefits like teleportation, shock,etc. Teleportation can compensate for his limited mobility.
