Calling Kid or Law low top-tier when they barely beat by far the most incompetent top-tier in what appears to be one of the most convenient battles in OP is among the most clueless things you could do as a power scaler. I don't think Kid's defeated yet, but this is never supposed to be that hard a fight for Shanks. Kid's lack of skill was well established in Wano, and a lot of us pointed out that he wouldn't fare well against skilled fighters like Shanks. But the people who don't respect the match-up circumstances have been thinking otherwise.
That's on you then.
Imcompetent Top Tier or not, a Top Tier is a Top tier.
Sure there was some PIS involved, but Kidd and Law's performance was good enough to be Low Top Tiers, no 2 YC1's are beating a Top Tier.
I never complained about Kidd losing to Shanks, but the manner of how people are saying he got One-Shotted, which if it did happen it's bad writting.
I'm open to Shanks being stronger than Mihawk and I can see why some people believe that (outside of direct comparison the gap in hype between Mihawk and Shanks is like night and day) but until it's proven that Shanks has a different fighting style I have to put him below Mihawk
- Kid vs Beckman, Kid wins but is very worn out
- We also see Lucky Roo and Yasopp knocked out, seems Kid defeated all of them
- Shanks shows up and is impressed he beat all his commanders, but seems he's out of energy now
- Shanks one shots Kid
-RHPs defeated Kid pirates but Oda offscreened most of the fight, this is another Kaido/Oden situation, leakers are hyping up Shanks oneshotting Kid but in reality we only see the "finisher" and Kid took many more hits prior to that.
-Same as above expect Kid isn't defeated, his crew is but he's still conscious.
-Shanks actually 1 vs all'd Kid's crew and oneshotted everybody, reads like some fanfic honestly.
1. Kid was confident
2. He was the one who wanted to fight Shanks
3. "Bold Warriors are about to clash"
4. "Only if I lose right"
5. Give him Conqueror haki
6. "Luffy rival"
7. 3 billion Bounty
8. Shanks telling the giants to help him against Kid pirates
Just to... lose like that?
Hmm not good. We knew Shanks wasn't losing but come on! At least Law had some panels defending himself. I'm hoping the same here. Otherwise, Oda hates Kid.
