I dont blame people for putting a little faith in some of the Wano folks.
Aside from the Scabbards and Hyogor, Wano warriors all suck haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard.
What a freaking joke of a country.
I say Marco is a 8.7, while King and Queen going all out could be in the range of 8.3-8.5.
Him getting jumped by even Perospero and going down, and Sanji 1v1 King, would but him maybe at 8.5-8.6.
Still below Marco. But still able to beat King.
Numbers here are just used for support.
Since he doesn't know who Yamato is, he is just hearing the enemy calling this person "young master". So he could assume its an enemy near Shinobu and Momo.
He had left BM's place already when Jack announced he was going after them.
So maybe he thinks Momo is currently in more imminent danger...
Pretty sure at this point this "partial" transformation from Marco is his Hybrid. I think Oda just thinks this looks cooler and easier to draw, maybe?
Fuck Hygoro. Did his job already.
RIP in Pepperoni.
