Carrot already is the final crew member. I won't be surprised if she just continues sailing like Kinemon and Vivi only for much longer before getting an official joining chapter.
Sugar was basically the most central Joker pirate after Doffy but she was not the strongest. Fine to rank him above his brother and sistet but he hardly seems special beyond that.
She is simply the only stand-out after Bobbins and Tomago and simply has more of a presence than the 3 siblings. Of course with Randolf being a thrown away who knows but she is clearly just a fighter so hopefully she is good at that.
We're not talking about the enraged army. We are talking about individuals among the army. The army is most dangerous because of Prometheus and Zeus. Not sure how a group with Bobbins, emotionless probably fairly superhuman fodder, and a bunch of high tiers with hax abilities does not fall under decently strong.You are right that Lao G/Gladius are not just any pirate but i'm not really sure if i would call the enraged army just random pirates either since it's the army BM sent out when the previous sweet commander got defeated which would mean that while i'm sure there are some randoms in the army a lot of them should be decently strong atleast and a decent chunk of them could be on that level.
I'm not sure what that strong even means to you? Psuedo-SN level? That is a very high level I don't think you can just throw around. Tomago is basically Vergo level so there is only so much space you can place Amande and then the siblings. Just not getting why you find it weird Sweet dude was taken out by Jinbe because you assumed he'd be above Gladius/Lao G/Caesar/Franky/Delinger/PH Dragon. Him being taken out is the evidence otherwise.I might indeed be wrong on that though since i'm really mostly just assuming and we can't really be sure of anything until Oda shows more of their strength since it's indeed also possible that the enraged army has plenty of people who are not that strong and it's the strongest ones that makes the army one to be feared.
