Please provide for me the panel or reliable source that states King being the right hand, VC or first yonko commander, because until you can do that there is no reason why he would have to be treated any more special than Queen and Jack. Stop comparing King to other characters in other crews and understand that he was placed on the same footing as Queen while Jack was placed below both. Portrayal reigns supreme in Oda's world and these arbitrary power ranks that have no basis beyond fulfilling the fandoms own headcanon don't mean anything. The only reason people place Queen as a YC2 is because they assume he has a lower bounty than King so essentially they are saying bounty=power, but they aren't consistent with that when it comes back to bite them in the ass. Because beyond bounty there is nothing that would place King above Queen and King doesn't have to live up to some standard placed on him by false association. Katakuri was placed above the others through portrayal; having kings haki, future sight, being the de facto captain in BMs absence and stated to have never been defeated before.....now compare that to Smoothie and you'll see a clear depiction of superiority. The fandom lumps Queen with Smoothie for no other reason than bounty which they themselves don't believe represents truly how powerful a character is. King, Queen and Jack are stated to be Kaidos confidants and right hand men but King and Queen are portrayed as Jacks superiors, while Marco is stated in the canon manga to be WBs first division commander and right hand the same thing with Beckmann so you can see that they have a different portrayal than King.
