No, this is Oda being smart by hiding the power ceiling of the strongest characters in the series like any decent writer would YOU dumbfuck yonkoutard. The fact two emperors could not even affect the shitty mansion they were fighting in despite fighting for several days while two admirals literally CRACKED through, split in half, altered the shape and permanently changed the climate forever of an island dozen times bigger than Onigashima show laido and Lig Meme would DIE from the crossfifre of two admirals fighting seriously.
Result of two emperors battling for days
Result of admirals battling for days
LONKOU ARE THE MOST PATHETIC FODDER TRASH I'VE EVER SAW WITH THEIR DC PEAKING AT SMALL BUILDING LEVEL NO WONDER KIZARU THOUGHT HE COULD SOLO LAIDO AND BIG MEME 1 VS 2
Croc just mentioned that "THEY are awakened zoans being resilient etc" not "WE call THIS (something which is also within the one saying)" awakening. Look i dunno why are there some members who view Kaidou doesnt have awakening if he loses. Like whats the point. Kaidou practically said he has it, and he's powerful enough to the level of absurdity...whats even the point of saying that Kaidou doesnt have awakening?
