    For me it'd be:

    -Gilthunder: the Tien of the series
    -Hendrickson: the watered-down Piccolo of the series
    -Ban: takes a lot of L's in recent showings and is one of the weakest Sins now
    -Elizabeth: was hoping she'd be more battle-useful or hax after regaining her memories
    -Zeldris: just keeps getting trolled

    • Most of the commandments (for obvious reasons)
    • The 4AA (I mean, you’d think that they would contribute more to the story but they have not)
    • Gilthunder (went from badass in the 1st 100 chapters in the series to a weak character who is a massive meliodas fanboy)
    • Elizabeth (she should’ve have a MUCH bigger role in taking down mael)
    • The Demon King (His performance is purgatory. That’s all I’m going to say)
    • The Supreme Deity (Where the fuck is she? When are we going to actually see her?)
    To an extent:
    • zeldris (Nakaba had him in the series for a long ass time and has hardly utilized him. His fight against the assault squad was his 1st REAL fight and will probably be his ONLY real fight.)

    Biggest?

    Merlin's recent performance.
    King's recent power-up and how it was handled.
    Monspiet's and Derrierie's absolute waste.

    That's probably my largest gripes in the series so far. There are a few others but they didn't let me down nearly as much as these three overall.

    It's kinda impossible for Merlin to disappoint me because she's a total Mary Sue. Same with Meliodas, really. They've always been portrayed as owning the opposition, and so they always do.

    >tougher, stronger and faster beyond all compare
    >mentors to mel and zel
    >essentially fodderized by merlin based off of a guess

    >fearful of Merlin
    >consistently outdone by Escanor
    >weaker than Mael who lost to King
    >was mind-fucked by Gowther
    >weaker than Meliodas

    So even if this were true, he'd still only be stronger than Diane. :doggokek

    being cautious of a broken as hell mage with an innate magic ability literally described as cheating is nothing to be ashamed of (even if she is a mary sue) :yousmart

    escanor is the strongest (or second strongest) sin for a reason tho :catsun

    yea, this is true

    everyone was mindfucked by gowther tho :kermitthink

    mel is the ultimate mary sue of the series

    that's without hunter fest too

    and he still doesn't have his sacred treasure

    200k base power level + hunter fest + snatch + his sacred treasure = ban rightfully taking his position as the third strongest sin :yousmart

    i'm mostly just shitposting, so don't take it too seriously

    expect ban to be portrayed as enormously strong when he reappears tho

    Hard optimistic.

    His crew is just too broken. Whatever his sacred treasure is, or whatever Nakaba has in store to make him relevant again, it better be enough to allow him to compete with people who'd solo the TC.

    Prime Mael with Sunshine is an unknown level of strength.

    But he did casually defeat 4C Mael who is far above the other two AA. So he's stronger than him at least.

    I do believe he's stronger than Ludociel though. Current King is the 4th strongest Sin, putting him right behind Merlin or Escanor, both of which are above Ludo.

    Lol. Mael was at his limit and he wasn't in a state of mind. He just a dumbass with pl over 200K.

    All the 4AA is stronger than King and yes pl isn't everything you must know that before.

    Sariel and Tarmiel got stomped by a lesser evolution of Mael. King casually beat the strongest version. So how are they above him?

    And feat-wise, nothing about Ludociel makes him stronger than King.

    -Gilthunder he’s basically trash
    -Estarossa being Mael, wish Esta was his own character
    -Ban not getting a real power boost, at least not yet.

    -Every holy knight, Gilthunder and Howser in particular, considering they had a training arc that didn't amount to anything

    -Sariel and Tamiel, only served to hype Mael and got to most the most underwhelming death, I accidentally skipped a page on my first read and didn't even notice they were dead

    -Zeldris, got punked 3 times before doing anything relevant in the current arc (got caught in the crossfire of Escanor attack, shit on by Melodias and trolled by merlin) and it wasn't even in a cool way like Estrarossa. So when he used Omnious nebula I had a strong case of the "why didn't he use it earlier" syndrome, which is made worst when he said he never holds back.

    -Galan, had an amazing introduction, but then got stopped by three different sins and ended up being the second weakest TC even with a power up

    -the rest of the TC, were all made irrelevant the moment Melodias got his power back and Escanor enter the fray

    -the master, wasn't exactly disappointed, just hated them from the start, just there to be additional miniboss

    There were many disappointments that happened throughout the series, but the biggest and most consistent disappointment of them all is Meliodas himself. At first, I didn't mind the fact that he was "super-powerful", but it wasn't until this whole "Emotions" bullshit and the fact that he becomes too powerful that I've grown to hate him. He's the primary reason why powerful characters like Galand or the Two Kings went from being one of the biggest threats to punching bags for him. Even the Demon King got his arm chopped off by Emotion's Mel for fucks' sake.

    At least with characters like Escanor, he is powerful in his own merit thanks to his ability that's only good for half of the day (although the only time I felt disappointed was the evening transformation out of "imagining a sun" which sounds bullshit), but not so overpowered to the point of killing every single being that are considered tremendous threats.
