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.

There is a reason. Marco and Beckman are special cases they are the strongest YC1 plus are more relevant plotwise, Marco had his role as WB's right hand, lead the remnants vs BB in the payback war and now he is the strongest ally of the alliance. Beckman is the 2nd of Shanks who is a really important character, anyway Oda hyped him tonrival Shanks power sobthere is nothing else to add here. About Kata.. He should have the same power, pretty much, as King. The difference is that Kata was the main villain of WCI who also had to carry the whole BM pirates while BM was in her tantrum mode while now King is just the 1st mate of Kaido, who is the villain, and plus there is also BM (and she is really toyed with, she is like a walking plot tool which enters and leaves places just to adjust the plot here and there), so King is the 3rd guy.

So if Kijg was the opponent of Luffy he would get all the hype of this world but since Luffy had already surpassed that stage amd hebis just the opponent of Zoro he will get little hype. At least until his fight start and we xould get some sweet info like for WsW with Jinbe.
and shyriu, mihawk, ryuma?

1) Marco has bounty under 1 billion
2) The calamaties bounties are unrealible because they use WMD (unless you actually believe Jack and Queen are Katakuri's peers 😑🙄)
Idk about Benn but for now Katakuri is the strongest Yonko "1st mate".

All the yc1/vice yonkos have been represented as a famous pirate, but one:
1)been


2)Marco
3)kata

And yes this is king. First his presentation was with queen (when the anothers yc1 were presentation alone), second he didn't do anything in this war (for now) and he didn't defeat marco when he had the queen help (indeed marco has been dominated them).

King is the worst yc1 (for representation) and can be he isn't real yc1 (can be yamato is).
