Even if King just stands there and does nothing, Doffy can't even put a scratch on him even with the strongest of his attacks. Even Bird Cage can't help him.
Horrible example, King can switch between frail defenses and high defenses but slow speed, if he chooses the defense form, Doffy already has shown to be able to contend with Jozu, who has a much higher defense, as seen when he blocked an attack from Mihawk, who’s much more powerful than Zoro and doesn’t have a meme three sword fighting style like his pupil, speed form is frail, and Doffy can fly, which gives him an advantage Zoro didn’t have.
King’s highest feat in the story is to be a Kaidou’s fanboy and say how cool and powerful he is. I’m not deranged to say Doffy would push Aokiji/Fujitora to hard, no, Admirals are very powerful, I would even say Fuji would push Kaidou to extreme diff, but to be with your equal-ish, and still get negged off screen by an Admiral, while Doffy was able to confront one outside the WG’s control, so he couldn’t play his Marijoa’s secret card, and still able to escape when he saw he wasn’t strong enough. This is fucking embarrassing, and a reminder that YC1 means nothing, weakened Marco was still able to block an attack from Kaidou, King would have been “Kaidou sama, you want me to die? Only because it’s you UwU” in his place.
Oh, and he manipulates fire, unfortunately this is not Bleach, and fire is the jobber element anyone can block or even use even if they’re not Lunarians.
Yeah, absolutely, I stand by Doffy>King, I’ll even state that a CD that didn’t spent their entire life doing nothing in luxury, is stronger than a lunarian, hence them being wiped out.
