    Think about it. Yeah his durability has been proven to be complete and utter shit, but that's not what his fighting style revolves around to begin with.

    This chapter he became the first person to draw blood from Zoro since Fujitora, and considering that Pica threw a mountain at him and he was unfazed, that's a pretty solid feat. Zoro even commented on his straw manifestation's strength.

    I'm not even saying he's one of the top 5 Supernovas at this point, but he's certainly not too shabby either.

    Isn't it just Zoro-wank thread in disguise? He's Supernova, of course he's stronger than Pica.

    Not sure how this translates to Zoro wank to you, but whatever. The point of the thread wasn't to compare Hawkins to Pica, if anything I was making a small parallel to Fujitora.

    Agreed. Hawkins' had a decent performance.

    Fight seemed very casual, as if they were just trying to test their capabilities imo, so I'm looking forward to see more of Hawkins' abilities and power.

    > He was able to hurt Zoro so he has to be really strong. Only Fujitora could hurt Zoro.

    It makes perfect sense that he's around Zoro's lvl, which is way above Pica. Only reason why noone other than Fujitora was able to hurt him is because Zoro didn't fight anyone around his powerlvl post-TS yet. No idea why did you bring up Admirals in this if this wasn't to wank him.

    I brought up admirals in the same breath as Zoro, therefore I’m wanking him, despite the thread not being about him to begin with.

    I think you’re reaching a bit bro, don’t strain yourself. If anything I’m wanking Hawkins, lol.

    It was for Luffy and Zoro.

    Just Zoro, if serious, would no (real) diff Hawkins. Luffy on the other hand would casually obliterate his ass. With futur sight Hawkins couldn't even touch him.

    Hawkins is a decent SN with an interesting DF, but he's no match for those two crazy monsters.

    Didnt expect anything less from him.

    To me he is already more impressive than Sanji or Smoker. :gglife

    That's not how a gags work. It's from the perspective outside the 4th wall.

    Comparing it to a crab hitting Luffy is just downright retarded, that's a joke for the readers. Hawkins literally making Zoro bleed while being undamaged himself isn't.

    Sharp attacks are more likely to make someone bleed than blunt attacks.

    He also commented on the Punk Hazard dragon's strength & then he one-shot it effortlessly.

    I'd say Pica is stronger than atleast half the super novas, hax DF and Haki.... I doubt Capone could defeat him even going all out... Law might even have trouble with him.


    Hawkins is great but multi hit attacks are probably his weakness.... Luffy landing a barrage would eat up all his dolls really fast.... his tarot cards are very interesting

    Hawkins' DF ability reminds me of Kakuzu's Earth Grudge Fear jutsu except his deals with straw instead of strings.

    Well if Zoro is his opponent it would be an interesting challenge for Zoro who has since post time skip really just 1 shot everyone he's come up against.... Especially if Hawkins gets like 1000 bodies or something.... Zoro doing a new Asura 1001 strike attack would be awesome..... or some sort of never ending spiral/tornado attack.

    I'm more concerned that that nail might make Zoro susceptible to being a Life Minus voodoo doll in the future.

    That said, Zoro is damn near unkillable so him having to tank his own attacks to win the fight is viable.

    I'm not so sure about that yet.

    Pica vs Capone could be very interesting. If Pica can assimilate into the stone of Big Father that would be curtains.

    It really is a combination of the Zombie Twins. He has Hidan's voodoo doll sorcery and he has Kakuzu's transformations.

    Then he flips the script by using duel cards like it's an episode of Yugi-Oh.

    yeaa he was pretty impressive. that puppet thing made zoro visibly struggle in a competition of strength and he made zoro bleed. his durability and observation haki seems to be crappy though, as he couldnt evade zoro;s attack and it would of apparently killed him if not for his df. the cards thing is also pretty unpredictable, for all we know it could turn him into a complete monster strength wise.

    I thought he was unimpressive, back in then we was able to transform into the Strawman himself now he has to use his Sword. And he didn't showcase any Haki proficiency which is kind of a letdown.

    Just because he used his sword to transform doesn't mean he can't transform himself anymore. Its silly and stupid to think that.

    I don't think it's really a downgrade for him to be able to create a remote telepresence Goma no Sou that can fly and attack.

    Capone is low top commander leveled.

    Hawkins threw away some fodder kaidou threw at him who are weaker than the pain drugged fodder jack had, it's not like he lost crew members, let alone core crew members.

    The issue with Hawkins vooding Zoro is that everone appears to get one shotted every time there is a transfer and Zoro is unonehotaable. Which creates an issue.

    If the damage gets tranfers say by Hawking tripping on a rock, then that is easily exploitable.
    If the damage is based on sequence of the doll made then that is easily exploitable.

    But if the above are not true, then Hawkins can probably make Zoro give himself mid diff (Zoro>zoro) before going to defeat hawkins.

    Using the damage to strategically place the curse on the right circumstance would be the best way for Hawkins to not be trash. Right now hes kind of underwhelming.
