Rocks D Xebec after evil Shanks revives him in the final arc

He's been waiting for Luffy to get stronger so he can steal his Haki and give that power to his father Xebec

Maybe Blackbeard and that's it. No one else has his level of hype right now.

By powerscaling so far, Blackbeard is equal to Shanks, while Sabo, Dragon, the Gorosei and Imu are all above him, every other yonko and admiral is below him, Shanks defeated multiple admirals (Kizaru, Greenbull and Fujitora) while Garp lost to Aokiji so he is above these

Shanks might have become stronger than Roger as he can use more powerful versions of the same abilitie, but others became stronger as well like some listed above

also not sure how strong Figarland Garling is, who is from the same family as Shanks and might as well be his father

LOL.

Shanks Haki would cancel out Apoo's Hax just like it would with Law. Unless Shanks actively does not defend himself like with the Sea King.

I'm mad the five elders are being considered yonkou+ and they haven't done nothing. Imagine yonkou being a thing if the WG had 5 of them and the marine resources.

All hype characters maybe above shanks: Imu, Dragon, and big maybe to Mihawk

Black beard naturally disadvantaged here. Seeing as one of his fruits gets like half of it's abilities nullified, yet he still has the same weakness against a guy who can rupture insides with every hit.

The elders don't need to be yonko tier. Imu(presumably pirate king tier), plus five first commanders, plus the holy knights would be an absolutely cracked team for example. Still enough to take big mom and kaido probably. Throw In the seraphim who are essentially first commanders now or probably admiral tier when grown, and that's nuts.

Imagine a roger tier, 14 commanders, and seven admiral tiers on one team? It would require each rock's pirates member at peak strength to make it a challenge at all.

OT: imu, BB, and potentially luffy. Honorable mentions to kaido and mihawk, but they can only tie at best.

No one at this point can be definitely said to be stronger than Shanks. Mihawk is arguable as always, current Luffy has a shot but most likely will run out of stamina. Their respective fights against Kid and Law clearly showed Black Beard is not on his level at this moment. Imu is the only character whose hype alone is strong enough to say he likely wins. Neither Dragon, Akainu, Gorosei or Garling has anything to suggest they can beat Shanks

@raelliden: BB wet himself at the sight of old Rayleigh, we need to wait until we see BB's awakening for him to become a massive threat.

As the person from above said 9 months ago, almost nobody alive is above Shanks. By hype, Imu is, and the elders would win because Shanks has so far shown nothing that would keep them down.

That's literally it for now.

IMU could although we haven't seen its true power but what i have read

Notably, Imu can order the deployment of a certain weapon of mass destruction, which is powered by the so-called "Mother Flame" invented by Dr. Vegapunk. This weapon, which floats in the sky above the target location, can effect the total annihilation of an entire island within seconds, as proven when it wiped out the Lulusia Kingdom.

Only a hand full of of people are standing after 2-3 divine departure.

Could be argued Shanks has surpassed Roger at this point.

You know now that I think about it, while Oda isn't known for making the most consistent silhouettes in the world, I don't think that the Shanks-looking silhouette amongst the rest of the God's Knights one was supposed to be Garling. Could be another relative of Shanks with power comparable to his as well.

Doubt it but it's a possibility.

Both of manga and databook are made by oda, You can't just take a specific feat to proved that the other statement that he also made are hold a great value than the other lol.

@monviez3: @monviez3: fair point about the data book but that is still too vague to go off of. Being comparable doesn't make them equal by any means.

For instance take something like sports, you can say the best NBA team is comparable to the worst because they're both in the NBA, but if they meet on the court it's a wash.

Beckman and Shanks may be in the same league, but they might as well be at opposite ends of the spectrum.

Im, Dragon, Mihawk, maybe 1 or 2 strongest Gorosei, maybe BB if he has some yet undisclosed power.
