    Who was stronger during the old war?

    We know that Meliodas was the original user of Love. So that plus all his Counter attacks, Assault Mode, and other generic demon powers and it becomes understandable why he was the strongest demon under his father.

    On the other hand we have Mael. Now we've seen time and time again what a Grace like Sunshine can do for a human like Escanor. How much more for a goddess that also has Ark and other generic goddess powers?

    These two at their 'prime' were one-man armies for their respective sides. Question is, who was stronger?

    Meliodas, most likely. If Mael was stronger they wouldn't have needed to exploit Meliodas' betrayal to attack the Demon Clan.

    There are chapter about Mel vs Mael, we just need to wait until summer. My bet is Mael is equal to Mel around morning to 1 hour before noon, after that Mael would be dominate

    It's hard to tell this is stronger than that . Everyone has own opinion but there's no way to decide who is the strongest so long as Nakaba didn't reveal it. Gowther in Ch.275 put them on the same level.

    If it’s close to noon (like 11am), I can Mael being stronger. But all other times, I think Meliodas is stronger.

    It was basically a stalemate. They wore each other out.

    But what we have to keep in mind as it pertains to this thread is that Mel was without his commandment. And since we know that commandments increase a person's power a great deal, Mel even then wasn't in his prime like he would've been back during the war.

    I'm pretty sure it's stated that current AM Mel is stronger than his self from 3000 years ago.

    If by current you mean the one thats taken in multiple commandments then of course.

    But otherwise that wouldn't make sense. He only finally reached full power once he reached AM again. But besides that thats his cap in strength. Having a commandment only makes him stronger. So old war Mel should logically be stronger than regular AM Mel because of that.

    But I'm open. Got a scan of that statement?

    Mael would be stronger than Mel at Noon.

    The rest of the day, Mel is stronger than Mael.

    Wouldn't that be because without his emotions he doesn't show mercy? You saw how cruel he was to Fraudrin. I just fail to see how he could be stronger without a commandment. If anything he should be equal since its not like he trains.

    And if he is stronger without the emotions...why the hell would Ban be trying to retrieve it for? I get the plot reason but still...wait till he kills DK.

    I'm not sure if Mael can easily use "the one"
    Okay so we know that one commandment give a 28k boost, Mael currently is at 200k+ with 4 of them, so his base angel form should be around 90k and escanor (not counting the one) has a PL of 114K so Mael should have been around 204k

    As for Melodias his 142k + 28k from the commandment is 170k

    So Mael is stronger at noon, but Melo probably beats him the rest of the day

    Lets make believe Mel would challenge Mael or vice versa in a duel after a year. Who do you think would win? Yup Mael would because basically Zel told Meliodas through intensive training Mel could par DK. So Mael who could absorb decrees instantly while Mel needs almost half a day plus Mael who has the ability to master everything instantly which Mel couldnt only proves Mael is better than Meliodas if we assume both of them par each other. In otherwords despite both of them are equally pvp, no doubt Mael surpasses Meliodas any given day as per Zeldris verbalization Meliodas could level up so in other words Mael as well.

    I don't think that was the case. And if we're going by statements, its been said already that only Meliodas a d Zeldris can handle taking in more than one decree.

    Mael is doing it but he has no control. It's the opposite since he's been totally corrupted and mutated over and over by them. So what we see with him is likely what we'd see with anyone who tried using multiple decrees. It'd be different if Mael was his original 'white knight' self after taking in the decrees, but that isn't the case.

    No, I believe what Mel is doing is smart. Rather than rushing the process, hes giving his body time to get used to each decree so that once his cocoon time is over he'll have them mastered.

    Wow Escanor is literal fodder without sunshine.
    Mael was one of the four commandments and his raw physical abilities alone place him above most of the other commandments. He has the Goddess clans light abilities which are super effective against demons on top of Sunshine which he can actually control.....He's stronger than Meliodas at other times than just noon. How often he is stronger is tough to say.

    Base to Base Meliodas is stronger then Mael because he still rivals Mael with the love commandment even though the curse doesn't work on Mael.
    Base Meliodas>Base Mael.
    Sunshine>>>>>>>>>Love.
    I would say Mael is stronger closer to noon because Assualt Mode Meliodas without a commandment was 1 shotted by Escanor who has sunshine on top of his very weak base without his sacred treasure. Sunshine is added on top of Mael's base.
    Every other time Meliodas>Mael.
