The Wano arc has become a place to witness Oda’s classic power buff for the Straw Hat crew members. All of the members raised their power when facing them as high caliber commanders under the Yonko Kaido Beast. One of the most favored characters by Oda is unexpectedly the “stepchild” Sanji. With his armed Haki plus the strength of an exoskeleton combined with his hot fire and speed, Sanji quickly defeated the Plague Queen, one of the Three Ears under the Yonko Kaido.
Because of this, many readers have begun to compare Sanji’s strength with that of a famous commander under the Yonko Big Mom, which is Katakuri. The question many readers have is whether, with a high-level Observation Haki who can see into his near future, Big Mom’s strongest child has the strength to take on Sanji.
This question alone has received mixed reviews from readers. Some have suggested that Katakuri’s ability to see the future thanks to his high level of Observation Haki will render all of Sanji’s attacks useless. From this point of view, Katakuri was fast enough to be able to dodge the attacks that the Straw Hat chef directed at him.
However, most readers think that seeing the near future is one thing, and avoiding it or not is another. An example given by fans is the confrontation between Luffy and Kaido, even though the Straw Hat captain was able to see the near future, he was still unable to dodge this Yonko’s attack and ended As a result, he lost consciousness with only 1 club.
Many neutral fans think that Katakuri’s confrontation with Sanji is an attractive match and it is impossible to determine who the winner is, which completely depends on the author Oda. In terms of strength, Queen or King are not inferior to Katakuri because they are both the strongest commanders under the Yonko. The fact that Queen is defeated so quickly is to match the rhythm of the Wano arc, but it does not mean that this character is weaker than Katakuri. Perhaps Big Mom’s child has too much acting space on Cake Island, which has created for many readers the feeling that this character is superior to Kaido’s trio.
Oda also repeatedly asserted that the strength of the Yonko Pirates was similar, so the commanders were all equally strong. So Sanji defeated Queen, the blond guy from the Straw Hats was strong enough to confront and defeat Katakuri. As for Big Mom’s child, he is also completely confident when his opponent is Sanji.
In general, Oda always knows how to create controversial details for readers to be able to maintain the attraction of One Piece. Whether or not Sanji’s strength is enough to defeat Katakuri will probably be an unending answer in this series. What do you think about the above debate, please leave your comments!
