    Man here we go again. *sigh* I didn't read any post besides the last two and I care not to, but until we all see Shanks fight with a sword himself none of us can be sure that he uses one. Yea he has a sword around his belt but seriously that means jack. He probably uses it on weak opponents or something, but let me say one thing if he does use a sword then he would have the title of greatest swordsman, cause we all know(atleast the ones that pay attention) that he has beaten Mihawk maybe even several times, or if not beaten then has come to a draw against him. But I'm seriously tired of hearing ppl stating that Shanks uses a sword and there's no way they're wrong, we'll know once we see him fight.

    Hi Everyone,

    I think that shanks is very strong and he can beat Mihawk. There are reasons to say that I read in the manga that Red Haired(Shanks) is feared by the Government if he make any move. This is only enough to see how shanks is really strong.

    Seriously, how can Shanks be that strong?

    Go waaay back to the beginning of One Piece, where Shanks rescues Luffy from the sea monster. His arm is bitten off by the monster, which is later easily defeated by Luffy in one punch (and this is at the beginning of Luffy's journey, before he gets stronger and more experienced in fighting). Shanks, on the other hand, had already been to the Grand Line with his crew. Clearly, at the time of Luffy's childhood, Shanks couldn't have been that strong (not to mention Shanks could swim, and therefore did not have a Devil Fruit power). Undoubtedly, to survive in the Grand Line, people in Shank's crew would have had to have been much stronger than he was. This means that being the Captain and having a ridiculous bounty are not dependent on fighting ability.

    We cannot assume that Shanks is strong, because he clearly wasn't all that strong before, and being the Captain doesn't require the greatest fighting ability. So unless Shanks has spent his last 10 years training (with one arm) I doubt he would stand a chance against Mihawk.

    tunodretsamadnap, your post is just... Well, I cant agree.

    Primo: Shanks scared that monster by just LOOKING AT IT!! If he had his sword/or used his own strenght (whatever) he wouldve probably done a sushi in 10 seconds of that thing.

    Secundo: 10 years of doing nothing and becoming famous just becouse of his crew? Yeah right - those 10 years he mustve spent on training his last hand, making it stronger than anything.

    Tertio: Whop said he beaten Mihawk? He fought him, but does this mean one will lose while other will win? Going back on their first fight, how could it end.
    -Shanks won and havent gained the tittle
    -Mihawk won
    -Draw
    -It ended before they could tell who won (kinda draw)

    All in all, they both began to respect each other and became friends... yes, friend!! Such as Zoro and Sanji- alwyas arguing and rivalring (heck with my english), but when it comes to things they can be called good friends. Thats all...

    Quartio (heck my latin): The things you mentioned, about 10 years ago... 10 years its goddamn long time! In just one year Luffy got his crew assembled, beaten such guys as Arlong, Croc, going to Skypiea... Im not saying that Shanks did more and better, but he isnt said to equal to Whitebeard just for having strong crew and cute face. He coulve eaten DF, gaining a super weapon (like the best katana in this world, who knows).

    Only Oda can really tell what happened, and we have to be really patient to survive till this moment.

    I agree.

    @ Tuno, you said Luffy became stronger, why shouldn´t Shanks? A pirate captain has to be strong if its not a pathetic pirate crew.

    i could sworn i started a now defunt thread saying this exact same thing


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    i think shanks is stong with arms, not with swords, because mihawk tell him that he has got no interest in fighting him without one arm. i think it's the same as zef about legs.
