Nothing new, actually.

Shanks most probably have many informations about Raftel, which make him even more dangerous, and raise his bounty. It wouldn't be suprise for him to have highest bounty out of Yonkos.

And him being able to go against Admiral is nothing new. We already know that.

I read this on reddit and admiral fans besides you OP are still in denial.
I’ve been saying that Shanks is the strongest for years and now people will more likely believe that the scuffle Shanks has with kaido was an actual fight and not just talking.


It said that big mom and Kaido both have 2 billion bounty or something and Shanks easily handle an admiral.

You can’t include real world characteristics in fantasy unless the fantasy itself has incorporated it. To say that Shanks couldn’t have trained his remaining arm to be as strong as his lost one in a world where he has the capacity to split the heavens period is fucking laughable
Until something is shown all possibilities are valid talking points. It's just as plausible he was stronger and more skilled with his dominant hand as it is that he was able to surpass that skill in a fraction of the time with his unfamiliar hand until one is hinted or proven.

No one has said it's an impossibility besides you. Never change, Riker, never change.

Numerous reliable translators: “Shanks is capable of fighting equally with an Admiral level opponent”

You and Karol: “Shanks can easily handle an Admiral”

This isn’t that complicated people :)

Post automatically merged:

Imagine if Shanks was only hyped to be, at maximum, as strong as Mihawk. But then you had a small sect of trolls who insist that Shanks was as strong as Whitebeard-oh, wait XD

The Shanksdom has never been known for rationality

Now I understand why you lack such a basic understanding of manga :)
Ur just a fool , all vids dat r out, its been said Shanks can fight the admirals equally , plural bratan, so he can fight 2-3 admirals at the same time. Get it in ur head admiral fanboy lol, Shanks rapes every admiral 1 vs 1.

You said it wouldn't affect him much I disagreed I never said it was impossible. Good ol' Riker arguing how he interprets your words rather than what they mean at face value. Never change.
Considering my reply was that "It's possible Shanks' strength remains unchanged because he uses a one-armed sabre and has been using using it for 12 years," your condescending reply of "yeah, because someone in real life can match what they spent decades doing with one hand by using the other in less time" is, indeed, you saying it's not possible. Instead of trying to move the goalpost and gaslight at the same time, just let go of your "but-but-but in real life!" BS argument. This part of your post, copied word for word, directly shuts down the possibility, not just disagree:

"No matter what the gap there's bound to be a difference in ability was my point."

It’s the same as when Kuzan said Sakazuki would send the AdmiralS for Doflamingo, but then Sakazuki only sent 1 Admiral.


You’re trying to twist an obvious discrepancy in the literal translation of words in an attempt to divert from the fact that the true meaning of the translation is “Shanks can fight an Admiral level opponent equally.”

I should expect nothing less from a child who doesn’t know how to spell “you”, “that”, “your” and other monosyllabic words.

Typical Yonko fan in action :)

Yeah imo there's bound to be a gap I never said my opinion was fact. I guess I'll have to use one of your old ones "I didn't know I needed to express 'imo' every time I was expressing my opinion.

You condescend the notion that Shanks could have sharpened the use of his remaining arm to the level of his lost one, going out of your way to paint it as a ridiculous scenario, and now you're trying to say that you weren't dismissing it when you sarcastically put the idea down completely.

But sure, Jan, you were open-minded to the idea the entire time. No one here sees through the backpedaling.

Again, arguing your view of the words rather than the face value. In my opinion it is ridiculous but I'm not pushing my opinion as fact though that's the difference. I get that because you push your opinion as irrefutable fact a lot you anticipate other to be doing the same but that's not the case.

Whether or not it’s your opinion doesn’t change that you implied and then directly said here that it’s not a ridiculous scenario, and denied doing so in-between. You’re embarrassing yourself

The actual translations don't say he can fight an admiral easy, it doesn't even say he can fight an admiral equally.

It says despite having no devil fruit he's capable of fighting on Marine admiral level.

It just says he can fight on that level... Which kinda implies the other yonko cant

Edit: here's the proof

And damn. I wish I could change this thread now. Akainu still rapes. I was bamboozled my shank dweebs
