    Who will be Zoro final oppenent? It will be totally different depending on wether The WG or Black beard will be the final oppenent in EoS.

    For me the gorosei old man will be the final oppenent. I think they got some eternal youth spring or something that will allow them to reach their prime and fight the mugiwara in EoS (or perhaps they will force bonney to do so). Imu included will fight luffy.

    Personally if he fights Mihawk than that will be his hardest fight and anyone he faces after that will probably weaker even if it is slightly.

    He might Fuji last, don’t have much hope for the elders anymore.

    It would be bad if he fight mihawk.

    -Mihawk refuse to fight shanks for losing a hand. Zoro lost an eye.
    -Zoro was trained by mihawk... this is not rivalry anymore. It's like "WB training roger to surpass him" or ."Sasuke training naruto ".

    Or luffy having a rivalry with ray.

    It doesn't sound right.

    Multiple votes would have been nice.

    I guess the ghandi gorosei might be the case.

    Green Bull will take out Mihawk after the shichibukai system is abolished.

    Zoro will fight GB in the final war to take revenge.

    Shiryu, Kizaru & Mihawk will be his last fights. Dunno which order. Mihawk will be his toughest fight and he'll be 100% healthy when he fights him. For Kizaru and Shiryu I think he'll carry an injury. Win with extreme against the former and just short of high against the latter.

    Interesting thread.

    Imo, eos villains are currently leaning to be the WG but Zoro's final opponent will still be Mihawk.

    Why Mihawk:
    1) Zoro's goal has always been to attain the WSS title. Because it is one of the SHs goals, I believe Oda will set it to only be achieved either by the end or close to the end of the series.

    2) I think Mihawk will still be the reigning WSS close to the end of the series because it's difficult to imagine placing Mihawk in a situation where he gets killed. Eg I don't see him helping Shanks against BB or Shiryu suddenly challenging Mihawk to a duel and/or winning using tricks. As for BB/Shiryu being out of the equation, I agree with the opinion that BB/Shiryu will be defeated by Luffy/SHs in Raftel itself whereby Luffy becomes PK and inherits the will of the D to bring down the WG.

    3) Mihawk's character has always been about swordsmen and sword skills. He has no interest other than that. By eos, Zoro will finally be considered worthy(Eg mastered the black blade and/or gain the final shodai kitetsu). Also, Mihawk might choose to purposely stand in the way of Zoro precisely because the stakes then would be so high with end of world prospects looming in the horizon(IM). Each fighter's mentality would be in "peak" condition or as close to it as possible and seek to win/not half assed in the duel. Almost a perfect setting for the duel deciding the WSS.

    Using rpg terms, Mihawk will be the optional superboss that Zoro encounters on his way to the canon/real end boss(IM). But as "warriors" who live for and by their art, their pride and want to test their skills as swordsmen would allow neither to back off until a winner has been decided. In this case, Zoro will choose to accept and fight. Regardless, Luffy will permit him to do so as he understands Zoro's spirit. Like when he allowed Zoro to duel Mihawk back during the Baratie arc.

    Mihawk might not be the final. It would be far more hyping to see WSS Zoro vs strongest WG forces. In this case Luffy's crew will have strongest PK and WSS.

    Mihawk will be the strongest person he fights, that much is certain. Any fight after that one is just Zoro defending his title from people who are fodder in comparison.

    Ideally it goes

    Shiliew then Mihawk then someone from the WG/Marines( Gorosei or Admiral Kizaru)

    Mihawk will be his strongest opponent.

    Tell that to the Mihawk fans, he left one disabled less able character for another.

    I don’t think Zoro and Mihawk have the same dynamic as Sasussy and Naruto/ WB and Roger, weird comparison if you ask me.

    No it’s like Shanks and Luffy not Ray.

    Not sure what sounds weird about Zoro finally hitting and beating his bench mark since he picked up a sword?
    Or are you talking about the student surpassing the Master?

    Mihawk can't really be Zoro's final opponent, unless Zoro waits to fight him until the epilogue or something (very unlikely).
    I think they'll fight on Elbaf.

    Mihawk will be Zoro's toughest fight.
    Then one of Teach's guys (while wounded and nerfed), probably either Laffitte or the 10th titan.
    Then maybe the sword gorosei.

    Yes.

    Rivalry between a master and his student kill all the hype.

    It's like Shanks training luffy to defeat him. You are helping an ennemy to defeat you. Not as great as defeating a rival who trained himself to reach you.

    nah, Mihawk will be his main opponent, but not last.

    actually after Mihawk, he will fight Shiliew. and after Shiliew...

    will be some Imu's servant. may be one of Gorosei. But Shiliew might still be the last

    While Luffy fights Im, Zoro will fight Im's older brother Mihawk. This is pretty much confirmed.

    You consider Shiryu fodder when everything suggests he is going to be yonko level?

    He only has a chance of being a top tier if he beats another one.

    Which top tier do you think Shiryuu is going to beat ?

    Nah, Shiryuu isn't becoming Yonkou level. He's most likely gonna be Sanji's opponent, seeing as how he's got the invisibility fruit, and seeing as how the FM of the BB pirates is Lafitte. Lafitte who has the same title in the BB pirates as Sabo does in the RA (chief of staff). I guess if you think Sanji is gonna end up Yonkou level, then Shilliew might as well, but I find that unlikely.

    people who think Mihawk won't be Zoro final opponent are dreaming

    they are either wish for Zoro to beat Mihawk AND another person above Mihawk for Zoro to be PK level

    or

    they are assuming Mihawk is not good enough and Rain or Fuji would beat Mihawk, atm impossible

    dude ... atm it's IMPOSSIBLE for Rain to be even a low top tier ...

    he is the one who FEARED Magellan and his new DF is not at all rise his power level , but made him more deadly ... cause breaking news "you can kill some one even if you are not stronger than them" that can happen


    but Rain can only dream for being a among top let alone YONKO

    there is need nor time for Zoro to have a duel with Mihawk for now

    where he gonna face him?

    • Wano?
    • Elbaf?
    • Raftel?
    • the End War?

    Zoro and Mihawk can take place even after the end war ... one chapter can be enough to cover that ... 2 at most ...


    if it happen any other time ... the duel won't as as epic as it should be

    and it also make more sense since the strongest enemy should fight you the last

    unless you can say a better time ...

    Even if he did become Yonko level, Mihawk would probably remain Yonko level to a higher degree, by virtue of being comparable with Shanks. Though I highly doubt he will become Yonko level. I don't see him getting above FM to be quite honest. Marco level or a bit above for sure, but not really top tier, whereas Zoro will be by virtue of being WSS.

    Shiryu is irrelevant, his fight against Zoro will probably be used as a CoO training before the final fight against Mihawk
