Exactly. Only the right hands can legit fight Doffy's awakening with either awakenings of their own or simply mobility and flight like Boundman. Oda didn't give YC2s such abilities and he also portrayed Doffy quite literally head and shoulders above Jozu.
for me its not even how they deal with doffy personally cause there are matchups and all that garbage
its having something that makes it insanely hard for anyone not knocking on the gates to what top tiers are to take them down
marco and his regen
king and his durability/toughness
katakuri with his fs
all of these things were just side dish to already very powerful fighters .
