Character Discussion Smoker is far more similar to Garp than Coby will ever be, the bias against Smoker is what makes people deny these similarities

#1
-Garp has sworn he would chase Roger to the ends of the world.
-Smoker has sworn he would chase Luffy to the ends of the world.
-Cobby has never said anything about chasing Luffy or arresting him, he wants to become Admiral that's it

-Garp has a lot of respect for Roger, but he doesn't like him or cheer for him
-Smoker has a lot of respect for Luffy, but he doesn't like or cheer for him
-Cobby has a lot of respect for Luffy but he's his goddamn cheerleader.

-Garp and Roger have almost killed each other on countless occasions
-Smoker has almost caught/killed Luffy on several occasions and Luffy could've returned the favor at Punk Hazard.
-Cobby got punched in the head and that's it lol

-Garp and Roger have had to team up in the past.
-Luffy and Smoker have teamed up on Punk Hazard.
-Luffy and Cobby have never teamed up.

-Garp refused promotions to the Admiral rank because he wanted more freedom
-Smoker refused promotions so he could stay in Loguetown and have more freedom
-Nothing about Cobby doing any of that

-Garp dislikes Celestial Dragons
-Smoker told the WG to go eat shit and they gave him credit for beating Crocodile
-Nothing about Cobby doing any of that

Even personality wise, Cobby is too kind and soft to be compared to Garp.

Now the obvious elephant in the room

"Smoker is too weak to be Luffy's garp11"
Yea and Cobby isn't? Lol Smoker is 100% stronger than Cobby let's be real guys

Strength isn't the only factor that makes a character similar to another, people who deny the similarities between Garp/Smoker are just haters who think it makes Garp look bad to be compared to Smoker due to him losing to Law/Vergo/Doflamingo.

They say Smoker is weak because they don't get Vergo.

Vergo switched legs and trolled Sanji

Smoker at least put up a fight and could damage him. Sanji's AP did not carry anywhere that damage to hurt Vergo, save for internal fire damage. Vergo had deep cuts from Smoker, and Smoker was able to outmaneover Vergo a lot of times (same Vergo that switched legs twice on Sanji)

Smoker's casual speed makes Luffy completely out of it. Luffy ran incredibly fast in trying to keep up with him, hell the floor was on fucking fire.


Smoker is extremely powerful. Coby is not lol

Tbh fair, Smoker was flying not running... it's an unfair assessment.

Results are all that matters. Smoker can expend very minimal stamina losses for the same amount of work as Luffy. Smoker’s stamina is probably very high. I can’t see it being less than Luffy

(so just imagine the fact that he is heavily panting while fighting Vergo (Vergo is never shown to have shortness of breath ever)).

Idk, I think that's an askewed view of it.

Agree. Smoker will be the next Garp while Coby is more of Aokiji:kayneshrug:
I think Smoker lacks too much to be the new Garp, there will be none.

I agree Smoker will become an admiral by post EoS events nevertheless.

Garp was named The Hero for a reason however, he is like the Maradona of Marines. No one shall ever be like him again, eventually.

I mean the way I view it Smoker is supposed to be a rival of Luffy. He has shown good feats just by comparing him to Sanji and Luffy, Smoker washes Sanji and Zoro. Think Smoker wins over Luffy.

Actually he could fight Law for very long (the time it took the strawhats to cross half the island) yet Law was able of evading 2 top tiers in Greenbit with his shambles technique and he did this for some 30min. Smoker fought Law for longer and Kaw was so adept at using the environment against Smoker. Smoker was at a clear disadvantage, and he was shown to be a lot stronger than Law. Smoker lost to a straight out cheat move

Tashigi also is shown to be someone that can give Zoro a run for his money.

The G-5 with some reinforcements are meant to be people that can go up against the strawhat crew. It’s not like the strawhats can just waltz over G-5. G-5 is going to be part of the future of the sorry. All in all they’re portrayed as capable of being able to stall and present difficulties for the strawhats.

I hope this is true
Because sadly both of them dont look like Luffy's "Garp" so far
Smoker was hinted to be it early in the story but don't know what happened in the new world. Did Oda change his mind? :wonderland:

Coby is just a boy inspired by Luffy and that's it
