General & Others Why do some people believe Zoro is stronger then his own captain when this is a shounen manga?

Vegeta being stronger then Goku at certain points is fine, they are rivals. Luffy and Zoro do not share the same dynamic at all which is why Its very puzzling to me to see this kind of behaviour here lmao. Its certainly interesting not going to lie.

Its almost like they want Zoro to be the main character here instead of Luffy when in truth he can never be. I could see it in their expectations too when it comes to who Zoro will fight. But the truth is while Luffy has been getting his fill of fights this arc Zoro has been stuck fighting Luffys sloppy seconds for half a year.
Thats why they usually hate Luffy as result of their extremist ZKK headcanons because of Luffy's superiority. Its a special case, because their idol would die for Luffy and gave up on his dreams for Luffy's dreams but they still hate Luffy even though their own idol would slap their mouth for talking shit about Luffy.

Imagine a scenario where ZKKclowns hating and talking shit about Luffy, then Zolo hears those ZKKclowns and tells them to stfu and don't talk shit about his captain. :milaugh:

If ZKKclowns were really Zolo fans, they would never talk shit about Luffy, and they would respect Luffy as Zolo respects Luffy.

Mainly the Erza fanbase lmao.
Oh, and Eileen fanbase too, but they are probably overlapping.

Brain rot from simping.
Bro. Eileen Erza Mira brandish Wendy chelia dimaria. It was freaking war bro. But yeah it was mainly Erza fans, they wanted everything natsu had. I remember how their jealousy even made them jealous of igneel like bro 😂. Igneel is certified god tier in fairy tail tf you getting jealous for. You only met the one's on mangahelpers. I met the one's on mangahelpers and reddit.

Natsu isn't the captain or leader of his own group so its not comparable.
But he's feats completely shit stomps the rest. Yeah he might not be leader but when everyone loses hope he gets them back up

Im just trying to understand why some Zoro fans think this way? I mean usually you never see this in other fandoms but here in this forum Ive seen such a take a few times.

Im thinking that maybe this is their first shounen experience and they dont know how things are.
Sasuke and Kakashi were stronger than Naruto for a long time. Guy was always stronger. Rock Lee possibly if he gets the 8 gates too?

Gohan always stronger than Goku.

Itadori is just being the strongest by now.

Ichigo only became the strongest by the end of Aizen Arc.

Baki was constantly improving and surpassing people.

Ippo despite beating his "main" rival early on still was seeing as underdog (never understood that shit).

Eren was just the strongest when he got the prime titan or whatever.

Kanjiro just became the strongest while fighting Muzan.

Ash just beated League now and was always losing to Gary the whole time.

Need something else?

Are you still denying that Zoro left timeskip levels above Luffy?
Post TS Zoro is basically Rooftop Zoro, post TS Luffy is Dressrosa Luffy.
Luffy got WCI and Udon to lessen the gap, and finally with G5 Luffy seems to be above again, but at same time Zoro also got KoH.

Well but the point is, post TS Zoro is levels above post TS Luffy, stop pretending that Zoro is never above Luffy. Just like at some point, Erza was also stronger than Natsu. Sesshomaru was, is, and will always be stronger than Inuyasha. Ash's Charizard was stronger than Pikachu. Patamon's digievolution was stronger than Agumon's.

Thing with Ichigo is people stronger than him, Kyoraku, Urahara, Yamamoto, Unohana etc are never part of Ichigo's main group.
They are allies like what Shanks and Dragon in OP, so Ichigo remains the strongest in his group. Chad, Ishida, Renji are never stronger than Ichigo.

The series where main character is not the strongest in his little group is Erza at earlier arcs of FT, Charizard in Ash's group, Patamon's evolution gave bigger impact than Agumon's in OG Digimon.

First you cry about toxicity, then you say that you will not engage in power scaling shit and now you make this thread? Bro what is going in your life.
As for the topic, Zoro is not stronger than Luffy and neither is Luffy stronger than Zoro. Oda made it pretty fucking clear from the start. That's why they had that draw at WP, kill this stupid notion that either is stronger than the other.
I know some Zorofans say this but majority don't, it is just the backlash when you get stupid arguments like muh MC, when in feats against same opponent at same power level Zoro has looked arguably better to the point that RT has been called fanservice etc., even this Lucci fight, the neutrals say that Zoro looked better if not equal.
This is the thing, Luffy will always clown and get clowned while Zoro will look cool, at the end of the day in terms of power scaling they will remain equal.
As for your shonen trope thing, guess what, OP is not the most shonen type manga, which other manga has a core characters structure like SHPs? And Oda has tried to show this throughout the manga, why does someone as strong as Zoro follow Luffy?

Yet none of you can actually defeat us in a debate.
Biggest cope is Luffy is the MC not Zoro.

Funny how everyone forget zoro goal is to be the strongest yet nobody believes it.
But you don't win either. Winning a debate usually means the other side agrees with you.

And I wouldn't class winning public opinion a majority Zoro forum.

Take your takes anywhere else and you'll get laughed at like everyone has taken smile fruits.

Honestly I tried using the debate on why Zoro's Strong than Luffy in some Whatsapp group I looked like a clown. I just embarrassed myself
