    The portrayal of the commanders/executives/whatever makes them look pretty weak frankly. Not a complaint or anything just an observation.

    Outside of Dragon & Sabo I don't think they have any actually strong fighters. Kinda understandable why we haven't heard anything major coming from them if this is what they have to offer.

    Well their strength is in infiltration and getting the citizens to turn on the government, not directly getting into fights with the big shots. But I guess now they're prepared to engage with them so they must have a secret weapon in their disposal.

    I'm probably sure these 4 are pretty strong too, but yes they are weaker than a yonko crew imo.

    Lmao, of course. Sabo is the recognized No. 2 of the organization after all.

    The RA is really just Dragon and some side characters. It's like LeBron James and the Cavaliers.

    There's some roleplayers, but it's really all about Dragon.

    Their intro was 4v1ing a 52 million pirate as opposed to Sabo charging Fujitora.

    Portrayal of what? Of playing around with a fodder pirate in order to let the people to fight for themselves? Hardly anything to go by.

    But yes, I agree that Sabo is the second strongest.

    Look at the way someone like Cracker (as badly as it was done) is brought into the story compared to these guys.

    They seem closer to the random BM children in the enraged army like the custard guy than the sweet commanders or Calamities.

    Dragon might turn out to be much more stronger than what we are anticipating him to be.I must admit,their intro did feel underwhelming but I shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.

    4 Sweet Commanders.
    3 calamities.
    4 RA commanders.

    Sure Oda is sticking to this theme cause RA is inferior to Yonko crew.

    Considering the yonko crew was inferior to a yonko crew, the numbers don't mean much aside from him sticking to theme as usual.

    What?? Doflamingo had 4 seats. Just because they have 4/3 Commanders don't mean they have the same strength.

    BM is an inferior crew compared to yonko crews, pretty straightforward non?

    Mingo also wasn't the most wanted man or someone who was capable of taking on WG.

    The Revo Army aren't taking on the government - they were opposing them which is a big difference. Both cracker & jack had trash intros but it was leagues above how Oda portrayed these guys.

    Sure the Revo army wants people to rise up and fight so we didn't see much direct combat but in what world can you compare Pinkbeard to people like the Dukes.

    C'mon sons. This whole introduction as Pink Beard bounty are most likely a lure to mislead the reader.

    Oda knows pretty well his fans and their obsession with tiers and knew perfectly that most of us would jump on the 52 million troll train.

    Fighting some fodders doesn't mean being one. Oda must be keeping their true capacities for later.

    I don't think these four are the top commanders. It just wouldn't make sense to send all of them to one single island in that case. It's more likely that they are lower commander level. The Bobbins' and Pekoms' of the crew so to speak.

    They weren't sent to the island,they were probably coming to kamabakka kingdom together since every one of them were summoned by Dragon and just happen to hear the news of a BB pirate attacking an unguarded Kingdom.

    Yonko vs Revolutionaries
    1. Emperor vs Dragon
    2. 3/4 [non Admiral] Elite Commanders vs Sabo*, Unknown**, Kuma**, Ivankov**
    3. Several Notable Commanders vs ????
    4. Select Exceptional Allied Commanders vs ???
    5. Roster Commanders vs ????
    6. Fodder vs Fodder

    * - Admiral Potential
    ** - Potential Unknown

    We know nothing substantial about Morley, Karasu, Bello Betty, Lindberch. Their portrayal wasn't indicative of their actual powers. Rather the Rev's ability to galvanize the masses. Revs fodder include the multiple Kingdoms they have assisted. Plus they have a user capable of providing moral support to bolster their strength/numbers.

    It would still a weird way to introduce them if they are supposed to be the strongest commanders. Introducing all four of them together in that way decreases the exposure of each character quite a lot. Just compare it to pretty much any other Yonkou commander introduction. I find it far more likely that they are lower tier commanders, since they more often get introduced in bulk.

    I know I shouldn't judge book by its cover but yeah it was kinda disappointing. These commanders left me underwhelming.
    I honestly don't have much expectations from RA anymore.

    It seems as if people forgot Whitebeard had like 46744346867 divisions under his crew. Revolutionaries are a version of Whitebeard Pirates, as in they seem to have a lot of divisions and commanders with respect to those divisions.

    But they don't seem to have the same line up of strong characters, i.e. if you don't count the trio of Sabo, Ivankov and Kuma to be one.

    Let's not forget that Sabo is probably Yonkou FM level or slightly stronger, and that Dragon is likely much more competent that the Yonkou when it comes to organisation and management, which means that his forces would be much more effectively utilised. Just imagine what Dragon could have done if he and his army replaced BM and her crew.

    The WB commanders were all introduced at the same time as well.But,I agree,they somehow feel underwhelming,we will just have to wait to see them in action against heavyweights of the manga.
