    It actually dehypes him.

    The dude walks in and out of whitebeard's ship and gorosei meeting are like he owns the places but lost an arm to an oversized fish? Even if it was for plot, that was bad, like bad bad.

    Ironically, the only time Mihawk turned away was when they were both in a clash and Vista was smiling. They were clinging sword.

    "wasn't even looking at vista while fighting him", nope, you're making that up, he looked over for a few seconds while the fight wasn't active, Vista probably allowing him out of respect + pride.

    Mihawk's attack was used to measure his strength against the world's strongest swordsman, sorry, but that was his best, stop mihawk fanboying.

    "Vergo could not even keep up with an injured sanji", he says about the character who without buso or his actual fighting style (he was only using kicks), broke sanji's leg bone within 2 pages of fighting.

    I think he was even older than that.
    Doesn't exactly mean much though as there can only be 3 Admirals and unlike the Yonko system you can't just go around beating up one to take his spot.
    Aokiji,Akainu and Kizaru couldn't have gotten promoted at the same time.

    Btw what's the source on Shanks being a Yonko at a young age?

    Shanks is the GOAT.

    He strolls on the WSM ship to talk to Whitebeard over a gentleman's drink while exerting 0.1% of his Haki to the nearby crew members.

    He stops a suicidal maniac Kaido aka the WSC from entering Marineford.

    He stops wars with just his presence, aura and confidence. Bringing peace and tranquility to the battlefield.

    He strolls through the Reverie like a boss, no fucks given, and gets a private meeting with the Gorosei.

    Shanks is just too much brehs :too fresh

    Since Akainu needs a year to find One Piece, if Shanks was the MC he'd exert 10% of his Haki to see his future self holding the One Piece then his current self would reach Raftel in one week

    actually he was sneaking around with a hood

    probably terrified of Akainu, the admirals and Garp spotting him :catstalk

    Isn't that a bit redundant though? He already knows how to get to Raftel.

    I assume he'd have no previous knowledge if he was the MC.

    He'll just use 10% of his Haki to see his success in the future then go from there :too fresh

    mihawk didnt use a named attack,swordsmen ALWAYS use named attacks to get to thier maximum strength,the fact that he didnt even use a named attack clearly suggests that mihawk didnt use his full strength against whitebeard.

    mihawk is easily at the same level as yonkos as he fought shanks,thier fights were described as legendary by whitebeard himself suggesting that they were both yonko levels

    it was highly implied that sanji's body was badly damaged ,even sanji himself commented on how badly his body was damaged and he stll managed to land two powerful kicks on vergo and vergo could do absolutely nothing to stop it

    What's funny with mihawk/shanks haters is that they dont realise they're both 2 sides of the same coin ...both fought each other to a standstill and both were hyped as big deals and equals..if one gets hype the other automatically gets hyped too and vice versa.

    you really hate mihawk, dont you?it has already been confirmed in the latest databooks that shanks was a yonko even before he met luffy,also it is clearly stated that mihawk and shanks had daily duels and thier fights shook the entire grand line.

    Thier fights would definitely not have been legendary if they were only deckhands .

    mihawk is yonko level deal with it

    We already had this debate and no, Morgan didn't lie. He reported facts from which he concluded that the SHPs defeated the BMPs. And at the end this is what happened.

    They ruined BM territory, stole her poneglyph, defeated many of her crewmates -includind commanders, and escaped alive.

    > SHPs: 1 - BMPs: 0

    I thought it was clear from the beginning of post-ts that Shanks and BB are end-game after Kaido and BM. Due to power scaling they'll inadvertently be slightly stronger than Kaido and BM.

    Anoter point being, even if they're all of similar strength on average, just like Old WB had his health problems, Big Mum has her hunger phangs and Kaido is constantly trying to kill himself. Shanks and BB are the only ones that don't have big ailments revealed that would hinder their average performance.

    No, he's fine as a character, a bit stale, he does have more going on than Zoro does though theme and stuff wise. Don't hate him, people wank him too much, same with zoro.

    What did it take to be a yonkou back then? To be the 4th strongest pirate captain. All of the strongest individuals are yonkou underlings, he wouldn't have to beat people like Marco out to get the yonkou position back then. He would have to beat who, a 20 year old doflamingo who was arguably a mid tier back then?

    Mihawk isn't yonkou level, nothing suggests this but "shanks is strong"
    Mihawk in his actual feats has
    1) Looked like shit to jozu
    2) Stalemated Vista

    Do you want to deal in facts or feelings?

    jozu stopped an unnamed attack of mihawk,swordsman always use named attacks because thats how they get thier maximum strength from.

    if mihawk would have used a named attack then jozu would get cut into half

    Mihawk was going all out by his own statement, and Mihawk literally looking demasculated and sweating uncomfortably prove he was going all out. He directly said he was comparing himself to whitebeard, got no sold by jozu, then looked like he found out he aint shit.





    THESE are casual Mihawk swings:

    first of all Luffys not a yonkou hes a goku. secondly shanks wasnt young. probably 25-35 which seens like the averwge age for people who want to be a yonkou. Big mom was probably Yonkou status in her ewrly teens before joining Locks and was definitely one after locs in her 20s WB was probably a yonkou the second he entered the new world where he gained the more impressive title= to roger. Kaidou may be one of the later Yonkous but likely before 30 he was a yonkou. the only opd timer we know becomnong a yonkou is blackbeard.
