Or Ragnarok, Luffy tanked that one too with standard armament Haki and not even AdCoC. This AdCoC powerup is needed for Luffy to face Akainu though. The ability to defeat Akainu is impossible if you are forced to physically hit him.
If Akainu fought the version of Luffy that was pounding Kaido right before the AdCoC powerup, Luffy would be a puddle of ash in the dirt right now lol.
The top tiers are only a handful of the very strongest lol. Statistically speaking, every New World veteran is among the very strongest people in the OP world. There are only like what? 10 top tiers? With there being dozens or hundreds of people in the New World world who fall into the category of being in the top 1% of the OP world in terms of strength?
Yeah, every top tier will have advanced CoC lol. You can’t look anybody in the eye and tell them that Oda will give big meme advanced CoC but won’t give it to characters like Akainu whom Oda fangasms over every time he brings him up in interviews lol.
No, it's not non-hakied, and haki clashes have sfx to signify when both sides have haki which in this case it doesn't have, when we know Sanji used haki against King who is an opponent Sanji considered weaker than Vergo
The act of not touching has been signaled as an ADV COA thing. It's only more evident/noteworthy when you mix it with Conquerors because again, Ragnarok and Thunder Bagua are Adv COC attacks yet, they make contact unless ADV COA is used.
Sure, Not-touching is an advanced COA thing but it's not something exclusive to COA alone. If it is, then I am afraid Oda did a piss poor job at emphasizing it. I mean when was the last time Luffy hit someone without touching them while using ADCOA? And how do you know Kaido wasn't making contact only because he started using ADCOA? How do we even know Luffy is using ADCOA in the first place?
I don't think so. Luffy's haki would run out soon and eventually Kaido would be able to touch him again. For all we know, there is probably a way to bypass this ability by going a level above. CoC level 3 incoming....
Ppl talking about Ulti not forgiving Big MomDoes a lion seeks forgiveness from a sheep??? Even the fearless Luffy knows not to mess with her. You see how Luffy only started smiling once she left the roof
Sanji in his base is really weak. First he got beaten by Vergo. His arsenal get destroyed by Vergo's no named non haki kick. Now he got beaten by no named non haki kick from fodder gifter. Until he show his worth,
