> King / Queen aim at killing the scabbards at all cost, yet they think they can't do that due to Marco taking too much of their attention(according to King despite having Queen alongside him)
> Marco is fighting King and Queen in a 2 vs 1 for multiple chapters(with his healing ability active on the dying samurai he aims at protecting), yet Marco only has a scrath, while King is dripping blood, with Queen even more damaged
This suggest it'd take much more time to see a winner despite Marco already fighting in a 2 vs 1, likely the reason of Perospero's involvement by the end of the chapter. He'd play the role Flampe did in the Luffy vs Katakuri fight, except that unlike Katakuri who was getting stressed on base Luffy without noticing Flampe, Marco would be facing 2 opponents with higher bounty than Katakuri, with Perospero's potential support being superior to Flampe's as well
If Oda goes out of his way not only to portray Marco in a comparative level to the 2 strongest calamities despite fighting in a 2vs1 to the point of involving Perospero's help to tip the scale of the fight, that alone suggest than in case of a 1 on 1, Marco would have ragdolled them
skimping through the spoilers it seems Old Man Hyo and Marco are MVP of this chap? Hyo is going out with style, hats off to him.
and damn Marco is doing better than i expected. looks like for now he is on top in this 2v1 but his injuries are pilling up. at this rate he might not be able to hold on for much long. and with Pero in the equation who already expressed his desire to take out Marco(saw someone mentioned about pero's grduge on king too which i forgot), things are not so bright for him. hopefully Sanji or someone comes in and give the man support. its already too much to take on 2 commanders alone much less another guy who might also be pretty close to that lvl.
hang in there chickenHead, the cavalry is coming
King is narratively too important to fall to a non-strawhat.
Sanji fans are very correct with this point.
They fail too miss that we have already addressed Sanji's background and his ties to the Vinsmokes and Queen.
Whereas, Zoro's background has not been fully explored.
And King is just as much of a mystery.
