Probably higher than a kite
Lol... so you’re excuse is that Luffy was sandbagging if you say so buddy.Pal I do not even care about the Usopp issue. Not to mention that anyone who has a working brain knows that Rufy was heavily sandbagging against Ulti, and that Usopp "tanked" Ulti's hits by being down like a carpet, hardly I would call that tanking, and anyway that happens many arcs and hundred of chapters after Punk Hazard. So your argument is awful. Anyway it's not even a matter of that.
This seals the deal. This destroys any possible "what if". If one is not biased, of course.
Sanji's reaction, his expression, everything implies that he was concerned that if the fight would have continued then he would have lost. And he is admitting in his own mind, with a sincere and spontaneous thought.
And he did not blame the previous damage that his body received as the reason for his bad outcome. He did not say things like "If only I wasn't damaged previously" "If only I had my body in perfect shape" "I would have defeated him if only I wasn't in this condition". No. He just reflected in his own mind that if he continued to fight against Vergo then the latter would have defeated him.
And Sanji thought that, after witnessing a Vergo who was heavily holding back. He didn't even know that Vergo was holding back his most powerful assets. The Vergo that fought against Smoker and Law would have destroyed Sanji. It's only simply logic.
A basic non CoA kick from Vergo already heavily damaged Sanji's leg; then a CoA Onitake would have smashed Sanji like minced meat.
Sanji's Diable Jambe kicks could not do any real damage to Vergo who is not using CoA, who tanked them with the utmost ease; then Sanji has no chance in hell to do real damage, let alone put down for good, to Vergo who is using Full Body CoA.
Sanji himself in his own mind admitted inferiority to Vergo without even know the latter was heavily holding back.
It's just pure logic. It's clear as day. The gap was massive and was showed. The inferiority was even stated. How can one argue this!?
and I mean you can try to downplay as much as you want but anyone with a brain can tell the Ussop has already tanked at least one before the second one we saw and yet... he is still conscious.
it does matter because I didn’t bother reading past that pathetic try at downplaying Sanjis damage going onto face Vergo.
if I cared for the rest of your shitty argument I would have just said so.
