    That's.... confusing. So is this the version of Escanor right before The One?

    His super buffed up form he gets, like when he wastes Estarossa. It's before he can use the One, but the strongest he gets outside of that.

    I think i'd give it to Katakuri. iirc Escanor often tries to tank attacks rather than dodge them. But Katakuri's Mochi Thrust with his trident is too lethal to tank. It could've oneshotted Luffy despite his rubber body and ridiculous damage soak if it landed in a vital area rather than his side. It spinning like a drill makes it all the easier to drill a hole straight through Escanor and since he's starting near noon he can't grow in size anymore and heal injuries that way.

    The One mode Escanor can literally bury him, in seconds

    Kata must finish Esca before reaching that mode

    Well Esacanor has more hax and the speed is not that much of a difference so Escanor wins.

    The series is ending soon and if it goes like Kongou Banchou the expect big powerups.

    That's the thing. The OP specified this is a version of Escanor who's stuck in his form he was in vs Estarossa (right before noon) so he's not going to be getting bigger and regenerating as a result.

    Katakuri should take it

    He has comparable stats and with Awakening and CoO he can overwhelm Escanor by evading his physical attacks and blocking his magical ones (without much damage) while constantly keeping pressure with constant Power Mochi hits

    Escanor has too much AOE and gets scaled to double the speed to pull it off before kata could evade it

    With magic, but Katakuri can just take those, not like Escanor can spam them.

    Doesn't matter, CoO allows Katakuri to keep up with much faster opponents

    Yeha he pretty much can spam them. His Heat aura his pretty much just him standing there and saying boom. His Cruel Sun/Pride Flare combo explosion spans hundreds of meters.

    His mere aura won't do shit to Katakuri.

    I know that and as I said, Katakuri can take that. What I'm saying is that Escanor can't just spam magic attacks without relying on his physical ones.

    With awakening Katakuri can spawn many huge arms (multiple power Mochi) or tendrils coated with armament to knock away cruel suns coming directly at him.

    The armament for Block Mochi (and Power Mochi since it’s basically a larger version of Block Mochi) is so dense I doubt it Cruel sun could melt through it, it made G4 Snakeman Luffy’s armament covered fist throb in pain and Katakuri actually applies fire to Block Mochi for one of his attacks (Grilled Mochi) by propelling it with an explosion so we know it can resist extreme heat.

    Escanor is capable of detonating his Cruel Suns telepathically.
    Spoiler:






    He's gonna get roasted if he tries to defend against it.Now imagine this with a continuous stream of Cruel Suns (Crazy Prominence).

    The attack is literally set on fire :catshrug

    And heck Katakuri countered Red Hawk (another fire based attack) with just a basic stretched out mochi armament punch rather than Block Mochi.
