Stops hard at 4. He will not be able to beat Magellan and Kuma. His two characters are potentially stronger than him. So both at the same time, he can do nothing, imo.

Magellan or Prime Kuma solos.

4 is tricky because of Magellan and Kuma(I forget how powerful they are on one hand you have Magellan reeling from a hit from Pts gear second Luffy and then on the other he beats Blackbeard and his crew instanteously but that same Blackbeard gets blitzed by Gear second Luffy but then Blackbeard gave Shanks his scar)

One Piece Powerscalling(Mainly because of Blackbeard):

I'll say 5 for now where he gets completely washed by either Sakazuki or Teach, he could stop at 4.

@skysanji: Magellan was HARDLY "reeling" from luffy; who hit him with gear 3.

Magellan was more or less surprised by luffys power, it's like almost getting the wind knocked out of u from a gut punch. He was litterly back up fighting in a matter of seconds.

OT: he stops at 4. Moria is a weak link but 4 vs. 1 is too much, three of which are competent fighters.

I'm talking about the jet Bazooka he used in a desperate attempt to get a hit on Magellan even if it meant getting poisoned.

@skysanji: stops at 4...

Blackbeard really makes OPs power scaling strange mostly because oda wants to make sure he's mysterious like the dude had zero bounty pre time skip .as in an actual bounty poster with the number 0 ..and imo kuma should be as strong as doffy especially if we assume he knows Haki and Magellan has an underwhelming physicals but his highly offensive df covers up for it

I'll say round 4 goes 50/50 with me leaning towards the team

But at 5 he gets destroyed by any of them

Mid-diffs round 4,

Gets destroyed at round 5.

Not sure where this Magellan hype is coming from, Kuma is the one carrying team 4.

@skysanji: @regime: well Magellan was never physically beaten (so We don't know the extent of his durability), was => Shirio of the rain, and took out the OG blackbeard crew in 1 shot B4 any of their observation haki gave them time to react.

OH!! Magellan has also, more recently, thwarted several assination attempts on Duffy from the world government AKA Cipher Pol..

@captain_inverse: Mostly true.

He was never physically beaten yes, but looking at his fight with pre timeskip Luffy we know he atleast felt his attacks which gives us a slight indication of his durability (lowballed this feat by saying “felt” instead of “hurt”).

He took out the Blackbeard gang, also true, but because of hax. They didn’t have prior knowledge on Magellan so they didn’t know he was that dangerous.

Katakuri isn’t stupid. With full knowledge, he’ll take out Magellan first by Unstoppable Donuts spam before any of the team can react. The only one capable of saving him is Kuma, and even that is questionable.

Sentimaru and Moriah are non factors.

No one except for maybe Kuma is even fast enough to hit Katakuri.

Does Sentomaru have the advanced haki Luffy is trying to achieve?

Not saying he can take down Kuri with his showings per se but he might be a lot stronger than we think. We also don't know the extent at which it gives the attacker the advantage. I mean, if Luffy plans on using it to harm Kaido. it may be a serious game changer. Would you agree? :o)

Yea either of the two in Round 5 would beat him. Nobody in Round 4 has the showings to challenge him though

@enemybird: If Luffy can challenge Kaido just by learning the new haki it's kinda dumb

@enemybird: If it wasn’t a serious game changer then Oda wouldn’t have had Luffy say it, rarely is learning a new ability/advancing a skill redundant especially when the protagonist tells the reader they have a ‘feeling’ said new skill will help them take down a villain.

With that said, Katakuri brutally murders Sentomaru with little effort.

I agree. It's an asspull but at least its a foreshadowed asspull.

Get out of here, he isn't stomping Enel, Foxy and the entire CP9 all at once. Someone is going to be a decent enough distraction which would lead to the rest dog-piling him. Enel alone ensures that Katakuri loses.

@deathhero61: Katakuri has full knowledge, top that off with future sight and he’d target Enel first who gets blitzed and one-shotted accordingly.

This ‘Dogpiling’ tactic would only be effective if the people involved could hurt him...CP9 got taken out by the Pre-Time skip Straw Hats so I’m truly flabbergasted you think they’d be more than an amusement for a guy who bullied G4BM Luffy. They can’t see him move, let alone react to him and he could stand still and they’d fall to the ground exhausted trying to damage him before they did.

Foxy lost to pre-gears Luffy...mate you can’t be serious. I refuse to believe it.

@enemybird: That he does, unfortunately he doesn’t have the stats to back it up, having only being physically comparable to Pre-TS Luffy.

The projection type Haki Luffy will learn is likely going to be more advanced/powerful than what Sentomaru showed on Saboady since that only hurt Pre-TS who isn’t even a fraction as durable as Kaido.

He doesn't have to be physically comparable. he just has to push him into Kuma's BFR or Magellan's one shot. As far as we know, there is no counter for it as you don't even need to make physical contact. Your thoughts? :o)

@enemybird: Pushing a 5 foot 8 weakling in Pre-Time skip Luffy is entirely different from doing the same to a 16 foot tall powerhouse in Katakuri though.

Sentomaru can’t see Katakuri move, let alone react to him and with future sight it means Dogtooth will kill him, Moria and Magellan (with Strength Mochi) Kuma is the only person here who one could argue being fast enough to do something but that is an uphill battle as all he’s done is blitz the Pre-TS Straw Hats which isn’t good enough since Katakuri has far better scaled speed through SM Luffy.

Murder stomps while eating a donut up to 4, and gets curbed at 5.

4 is only round that isnt a spite stomp.

Sentomaru and Moriah are completely irrelevant here, which makes it essentially Magellan and Kuma vs Katakuri.

By feats Katakuri wins easily, by scaling its honestly really tough to say as Kuma just doesnt have enough feats. We know he should logically be around the power level of Doffy which would give Kata a very close fight, but he hasnt shown anything to suggest it.
