No, it's an increase in power, let's see, luffy has ACOA and FS, two types of haki at most, and that's not enough for kaido, luffy can now ignore KAIDO's strength thanks to ADCOC, before they needed to receive the blows , defending himself with his arms, and when he did he was screaming in pain. A person who does not have COC will have the same fate, the blows will touch you, even when you are against attacking, as luffy did here, for example a MAGMA punch from akainu,you will not be able to play at the Kaido club, for that KAIDO counterattacks the punch using your club and the ADCOC from a distance (in front of the club), so first the punch needs to pass through the ADCOC and only then reach the club.
A user without ADCOC cannot beat KAIDO, 1x1, I am not generalizing that all users who have ADCOC automatically beat those who do not, but a user who does not have ADCOC is completely below in terms of%, of equaling KAIDO in a confrontation , ADCOC is necessary for this, it may not be necessary for other users of ADCOC, because they do not have the durability of KAIDO, and this makes KAIDO special among ADCOC.
We are seeing ACOA, failing to do real damage to KAIDO, Luffy says it is superficial.
But ACOA will not be superficial in other users of ADCOC who do not have the durability of KAIDO, so someone who has NOT Adcoc, and has ACOA may, yes, have a chance against SHANKS for example, but not against KAIDO.
It doesn't confirm anything, you are totally wrong. Nami and Usopp have to defeat Ulti and Page One.
Kid isn't going to recruit anyone, especially the beasts pirates. Also, Nami has to fight a F6, just like Franky, Brook, and Robin. She clearly stated that she needed stronger lightning to knock out Ulti, and we know that Prometheus is on his way. Usopp also has to defeat Page One. What is truly confirmed is that Usopp and Nami will defeat Ulti and Page One.
For the same reason why Crocodile didn't use his sand tornados or blades against Luffy in their third and final fights, why he didn't make sure that Luffy was finished the two times he beat him, why Doflamingo didn't use Parasite against Luffy or Law except during his futile attempt on G4, why Smoothie didn't easely cut the treasure room door to let Brook copy the Poneglyhs or used horizontal versions of her Flying slash, why Perospero didn't use his df to lift their ship above the waterfall, why Akainu and Kizaru didn't melt the ice created by Aokiji or aimed for Whitebeard's head when he had a heart attack, why Big Mom didn't use any of her real power during WCI arc, etc..
Yes she will, Page One too.
Sometimes I wonder if some of the guys here didn't start reading One Piece from the new world and skipped few arcs because they obviously don't understand the story properly.
Usopp was running from Chew in Arlong Park for the entire arc!!!!! And he ended up defeating him.
- He ran from Sugar and Trebol. Then knocked out Sugar.
- He ran from Perona. Then knocked her out too.
- He ran from Mr4 and Mr5. Then he defeated them too.
