Maybe it's just a stamina and navigation test, with an army of sea kings in the way; also, it's a really long journey to the island.
Or you could have the guardian be a guy who looks like a regular fisherman, but as you approach One Piece he'll get in your way and challenge you to a fight. As you fight this guy, you'll discover that he's insanely powerful and manipulates everything within 100 km from the island's center. (You'll also discover that Gol D. Roger was able to beat him once to get the One Piece, but he couldn't defeat him the second time to get the Two Piece. <-Okay, that's too corny.)
But seriously, all of the characters that I have seen in the manga ( and especially the anime aka ace lol ) seems to have weaknesses and strengths.
There are two ways to actually determine the battle as suggested in the manga ( that I am seeing anyways lol )
1) Use of thier latent ability whether it be a devil's fruit or special techniques
2) Use of experience and field advantage in a battle.
The second point always reminds me of the battle between Eneru and Luffy. I mean, you didn't expect luffy to use random punches to fool eneru's mantra, did you? ( Ok, so maybe I did lol It's still surprising).
I thought we were discussing who was the strongest pirate....
well back onto the subject Whitebeard is the strongest becasue it blatantly states so and he was the only one to tie GOld Roger ina fight. Shanks is probably pretty good but until he beats whitebeard WB is the strongest
Oops, sorry! I forgot to mention who I think is the strongest person in one piece!
I am going to have to agree that Whitebeard might be the strongest person right about now. But as far as I have seen, Aokiji and Eneru appears to be the most powerful ( since they showed thier powers ).
But recently, Luffy seems to be climbing up the chart with the use of Gear 2 ( vulcanisation ). I need to see the third gear to actually decide.
whitebeard......may be hes the strongers
but we never see him fighting
shank also....we dont know about his ability
until this chapter.......i think oikiji and mihawk is the strongers
Maybe Whitebeard can kill an island-eater with 1 jab? That'll be a sight to see.
yo guys, the strongest one will be MONKEY D. LUFFY... why?
.....He's going to be the PIRATE KING at the end...hehehehe
The topic shifted to talking about the strongest now, but wasn't there already a thread for that?
