"Sanji isn't Luffy's 2nd strongest mate , he's not his left hand man. Luffy has only 1 wing: Zoro and he doesn't have a rivalry with Sanji"
Oda : they are rivals and near equals. Sanji is Luffy's wing. He leads the crew in Luffy's absence "curly hats pirates "
Kept telling you Oda gave Luffy 2 RHs in Zoro and Sanji just like Kaido has King & Queen and WB had Marco and Jozu.
When a Great Pirate has 2 near equals commanders, they are usually not conquerors.
With BMP, Perospero only leads when Katakuri isn't around. Katakuri is the only symbol of hope and power in the crew!
with Roger pirates, despite Ray being VC & conqueror...scopper led the free alongside Ray in battles.
Benn and Ray are VCs. Luffy has no official VC but this is the first time a strawhat calls Sanji and Zoro "Luffy's wings"
Wings/the Power Symbol of the crew :
Strawhats : Zoro >= Sanji
WBP : Marco >= Jozu
Beast pirates : King >= Queen
Roger pirates : Ray
RHP : Benn
