It was Ray,Koby and 2 SSG Pacifistas.BB was alone,the odds were against him.He did the right thing to retreat.Picking fightings with unfavorable odds is something only Luffy can do because of plot armor.
Old Ray has the distinction of being the only character able to wipe the smirk off of Kizaru’s trollface. He was more serious against Ray than he was against WB. The fight would’ve definitely ended in Kizaru’s favor, but Ray for his old age deserves a lot of respect for what he was capable of.
For 12 long, retarded, and merciless years, people downplayed Admirals for what happened between Kizaru and Rayleigh.
“Admirals are certainly beneath Yonko because Kizaru could not defeat old Rayleigh. He was 77 years old and hadn’t even touched his sword for decades! No Yonko would be treated like this against Rayleigh!”
Myself and other glorious Chadmiral enjoyer calmly explained why these arguments were disingenuous the entire time. We laid out a myriad of perfectly logical and irrefutable reasons as to why Kizaru should not be downplayed for this moment, but like semi-sentient tape-recorders, the sheep continued to cry out into the void.
Welcome to Chapter 1059.
And now we have a prime Fucking Yonko with a bounty of 4 billion filling his expensive britches with steaming hot diarrhea at the mere sight of 79 year old Rayleigh. Did Teach attempt to fight? Nope lol. Did he attempt to even back-talk Rayleigh? Nope lol. Did he clarify that he will return to defeat Rayleigh later? N.O.P.E. Teach just straight up bitched out without even speaking up for himself.
Rayleigh drew his sword, and Kizaru did the same.
Rayleigh drew his sword, and the prime Yonko shat his pants, complied, and split.
“Oh, but Rayleigh said he could not defeat Teach”
Rayleigh SPECULATED that he could not defeat the prime Yonko. Yonko fans are truly begging for fucking scraps right now aren’t they? But this detracts from the main point:
Chapter 1059 yet again reinforces the fact that the Admirals are stronger than these bitchass Yonko. We’ll cut Teach himself a bit of slack as he will undoubtedly continue to grow stronger before EOS, but the Yonko level itself is fucked beyond repair. SSG will wrap up these fodder while the Admirals chill in New Marineford.
Thats not being scared of someone tho. What does Kizaru get out of having a hard fight with Rayleigh. Ray is retired and harmless. He wont be doing any crimes. Kizaru came for the rookies on the island.
Kizaru could potentially be Sanji's last fight. So yes I wont downrate him and say Sanji's Old and weaker parralel could beat him. Kizaru pushes Prime Ray to high-extreme. Possibly beats him.
