    There are claims especially from people like pwngoatvspandaman that Zoro struggled against pica but Zoro won the fight with relative ease!these people have not given any kind of justification that Zoro struggled against pica,so did he really struggle or is this something which Zoro haters make up?

    He struggled because it's hard to figure out Pica's powers and then put yourself in position to attack him, while he's on Dressrosa (one huge rock). Doesn't mean he's equally strong or anything like that. DF users are tricky.

    (I think this topic should be in the batledom section , right @Soca ?)



    Okay , let's settle this ince for all :

    1 Whenever zoro is going to face a serious oppenent, or simply is getting serious , he put a bandanna ove his face. He didn't with Pica. (At least during 90% of the fight , till pica aimed riku)

    2 Zoro had the 3 sword with him (contrary to ryuma's fight situation) yet used only 2 during his clash with Pica.

    3 He wasn't harmed once while fighting him.

    4 He constantly mocked Pica and complained on him always running away.

    5 He didn't use any named attack , or his third sword , exept when pica aimed a third party. (Robin/Rebecca first , and King riku/Ussop next)

    6 He didn't show any respect to his oppenent in the end , compare it to his previous serious fights like daz and kaku.


    Would a non serious hawkins or urouge take time with pica in a direct combat ? Yes.

    Would a serious urouge take time against Pica if he keep hidden in his golem while spamming golems attack ? Yes.


    Does that mean urouge and hawkins pica level fodder ? NO.

    Anyone who use "Zoro high diffed pica so he's fodder" argument is either dishhonest or a fool.

    He didn't really struggle that much. I call it mid diff.

    He still needed assistance to get the job done. No shame in that. They're pirates and Pica was trollin.

    Life is about matchups

    Didn't really "struggle" and if he did it was only due to a relative lack of mobility. Once he got to him it was over, and Pica couldn't really hurt him.

    Anyone who doesn't have mountain level Aoe would struggle. Hell we have people like current Sanji/Jinbei as example that have nothing to put Pica down on Dressrosa.

    Hell even Yonkou Commander's only get a nod over Pica because of scaling and not actual feats or portrayal.

    Mid diff is the highest someone could say who is not a hater.

    This is probably the smartest post I've seen in this section all week.

    I remember reading from some Sanji fan, I think it might have been Muah or someone a few weeks ago that Sanji could easily beat Pika since Zoro was struggling with him. :dank

    You should've seen gold_ace (a dupe of a Zoro hater) postin how based ob feats, portrayal and hype Sanji defeats Zoro with high diff and that was prior to the raid suit.

    The problem is that many people (several of which have posted in this thread already) try to hype up Pica with stupid statements along the lines of "X/Y/Z character can't deal with Pica's size! can't get to Pica! therefor Pica is stronger!", but they never seem to apply the same logic to his fight with Zoro.

    Zoro was canonically unable to beat Pica by himself. Does this mean that Pica is stronger than Zoro? No. Does this mean that X/Y/Z character that you don't want to imagine dealing with Pica's size is weaker than Pica? Also no.

    I think I remember the person saying that Sanji could easily take on Pika because he could beat Vergo in a fight and that Vergo : Pika. Smh.

    Wasn't there a legit Gold Ace poster?

    If you think a legit poster only logs in when certain people are banned and continues to shit on Zoro you're right.

    Zoro canonically oneshot Pica..Pica was simply good at running and thus why Zoro had trouble finding him..nothing else.

    he struggle against Pica's POWERS.

    Against pica himself it was pretty much child's play.

    It couldn’t have been Stomp because Zoro actually didn’t stomp Pica, but mid diff sounds about right.

    It wasn't completely effortless but definitely not a real struggle either. The people who say that are clearly haters.

    Ps: why are we all green? Lol

    Stomp. The second Pica decided to stop running he got destroyed. Zoro wasn’t struggling as a result of fighting Pica, but trying to corner him to truly engage him, and again, once he did that, it was over.

    We went over this a million times.

    No, Zoro did not struggle with Pica. He made an effort, sure, as Pica's df is tricky, but when it came to a head on clash, Zoro shat on him.

    Pica isn't even in the same stratosphere, and that's as objective as it gets. He's a nobody.
