again, if Oda wanted Jinbe as established in the new monster trio Jinbe would’ve fought Jack rather than Whos who.
Whos who is of the same tier as Robin and Frankys opponents, and although Jinbe beat his opponent easier, I do think the fact that they fought the same tier of opponents shows Jinbe is closer to Robin and franky.
Your arguments makes no sense, difficulty is not irrelevant (which you ultimately claim it is) and past feats and portrayal do not magically get erased by one fight. That´s the kind of arguments time and time again were proven wrong.
People in FI claimed Jinbe is G2/G3 Luffy lvl because he exchanged two attacks with him, then they claimed Sanji and Jinbe are equal because they fought the same opponent together, Meanwhile in WCI Jinbe was tossing around with Big Mom whereas Sanji was getting kicked around by Daifuku and Yuen.
Ultimately portrayal and feats are the most important, but are the thing disregarded for the most part, and instead people are looking for hidden layers.
WW was by far the strongest F6, and he got tossed aside like trash and completely humiliated in a way we have not seen since Luffy vs Hody on land.
Having said that, to claim portraying power level is the only reason behind match-ups is also far-fetched at the least.
Jack is literally the guy the minks have a vendetta to fulfill, just like Perospero is someone definitely a character close to Pedro has to beat, and lookie there, it´s the two mink leaders.
