He's not doing anything other than being portrayed as equal to Nami, Usopp, Franky and Robin in actual combat in a losing fight against a kid Jinbei, all of them together didn't even fight flame on Jinbei.
I think king has higher def and ive said it most of today but to make people feel less butt hurt, I have been using the happy medium of equal which I felt was fair considering people have been saying King has weaker defense.
im only saying equivalent because the story hasnt said otherwise so it is near impossible to debate. while I have to debate if I say stronger.
Chrono is right SeraJinbe did take damage
You guys should know how to read manga by now
Others mangas do the similar things when drawing damage, you dont need to be scientists to see what was Oda trying to said
Have a nice day
