    I've seen some people claim that the injuries Sakazuki sustained on Marineford were moderate at best. I don't share that opinion by any means, but curious to know what the OL thinks and what this means for Kaido and also what kind of firepower is needed to even heavily injure him, let alone beat him.

    IMO it's a decent feat considering he was conscious and going strong afterwards after getting struck by bloodlusted WB's attacks. inb4 MF was a clusterfuck

    Well he doesn't any sign of pain and was fighting normally right?
    So I guess the injuries isn't that serious...
    All we see was him coughing 4 time just right after the attack...

    Bad enough so that Oda had to summon plot shield to keep him alive. He should be dead.

    Assume maximum HP = 100 and damage infliction is represented as:
    Fresh = 0
    Low = 20+
    Moderate = 40+
    Substantial = 60+
    The Whitebeard Special = 100

    Akainu’s injuries were moderate. The damages he sustained didn’t suffice to deplete him. As he could fight Commander level characters and quite possibly offer a challenge to Yonkos. Whitebeard, Jozu, Ace, Oars, Luffy, Jinbe and perhaps fodder are the ones who took anything substantial. Most Top/High Tiers in MF had enough left in them to keep going.

    Wasn't he seen covered in bandages in one of the chapter covers?

    Anyways, they should be pretty serious, his face was covered in blood till shanks' arrival, and that was just the damage of th first Gura punch, the second island-splitter should've heavely damaged him internally aswell.

    He was functional. Conscious, using his DF and haki, moving without visible difficulty, actively chasing a target.

    I don't think there is any reason to say his injuries are more than "moderate" at that point.

    Also keep in mind Akainu has been portrayed as a tank as well, Kaido isn't the only one.

    He was fine.

    Characters in One Piece get covered in their own blood all the time when they take big hits.

    He was paralyzed for a short while, that's not exactly "moderate" damage.

    He literally came back later and took on the entire WB commanders. Then chases teach and his crew. You're all stupid if you think he sustained serious damage

    He was travelling in underground and managed to catch up with Jinbe who was running when Akainu fought Marco...
    Wb just happened to be dead at that point
     
  19. This. Don't understand the logic... Actually, I do understand the logic, considering it's used to give admiral fans a reason as to why he backed down from Shanks when he was quivering in his presence. Also, serious damage is lasting damage, and Akainu seemed completely fine after the war when he was going to potentially meet with Teach or when he evidently fought Aokiji. He was even fine at Marineford. Superficial damage is exactly that: superficial.

    It's like some of you guys forget that we're dealing with superhuman characters. Not even that... Some of the best when it comes to these characters. Many posters try to use the logic of island-level attack as if Akainu actually tanked that much energy, but that's not the case at all when most of that energy damaged Marineford and not Akainu himself.

    His performance after the attack should require no explanation. We saw that it did nothing to his fighting performance, and there was never any indicator - spoken or not - of him being weakened. Whitebeard was still performing island-level attacks with half of his face and numerous other wounds, but his other problems were his drawbacks. Even with his "injuries" as we call them, there was no hindrance to Akainu's fighting performance.

    Probably got a concussion, some internal bleeding, heavy fatigue ect. Nothing an admiral can't handle.

    No way fit to fight fresh Shanks though

    let's say a fresh akainu is 100

    after taking those two attacls from wb, he was prolly an 80 or 85

    obviously healthy enough to keep fighting but he was not at peak performance

    Severe enough to get knocked out. He didn't stay underground entire WB Vs BB fight because he liked the scenery.
    WB had put out his lights temporarily. That is why we say WB won the fight. Win via knock out.
    Just because he wasn't showing those injuries on his face doesn't mean he wasn't actually injured. Akainu is a Terminator. Terminators don't stop just because they got injured. One can't exactly expect Akainu of all people to show pain on the face.
    It is similar off DD who even after G4 beat down was smiling. Strong people don't show weakness in battle regardless of severity their injuries.

    Too generous. If 80-85% was Luffy after fighting Lucci for a while and then getting hit by the first Rokougan, then I'm inclined to say that's accurate.

    80 or 85 is like Luffy after defeating Enel

    whitebeard's quakes were to weak to cause any serious damage damage to akainu,akainu's injuries were moderate in marineford,he didnt suffer any internal organ damage ,whitebeard couldnt even break a bone of akainu inspite of cheap shotting akainu,akainu was still in great shape and was able to fight all commanders of whitebeard pirates,even after tanking 2 sland splitting quakes.also just a few days later akainu went after blackbeard pirates and was perfectly fine

    The guy took two of the most of the powerful attacks we've ever witnessed from a single person in this manga right up close and whilst the attacker was completely bloodlusted. 99.9% of the OPworld would have disintegrated to dust with even one of those attacks subjected on them.

    What the downplayers don't realise is that, the fact the he was able to able to still plough on after that is a testament to his own immense durability & endurance AND not a downplay on the severity, impact or power of WB's attacks on him. Only Kaido in this series can legitimately claim to possibly share a similar or a slightly superior level of durability.

    Quantifying it is hard and largely arbitrary but I'd say @MO pretty much nailed it earlier. He was in a suitable enough condition to fight a bunch of lightweights & clowns like the WB commanders but once a fresh top tier (Shanks) arrived he had to be more cautious.
