    Should Dorry and Brogy have been stronger?

    If these two where former captains from Elbaf, the strongest fighting nation should they have been stronger? We've already seen how devastating the regular citizens where in Zou and these two are meant to be a cut above the average grunt soldier that Elbaf has to offer

    Yes, but their age might have had something to do with them getting weaker.

    Weren't they pretty much worn out because they were fighting continuously for idk how many days or years.

    RIP Chester, you'll always be loved and missed.

    They were pretty strong. Keep inflation in mind also consider they were fighting with dull weapons. Though they were shichibukai level which is good for random pirates from a super strong nation.

    Yeah, plenty of excuses can be made. It was too early to introduce randoms that are top tier, he hand plenty of trouble with Aokiji and Mihawk already.

    Their bounties haven't been updated in over 100 years, and their weapons were dull, They are plenty strong as is, even by today's standards, imo.

    It's hard to tell where the two of them are meant to stand in the grand scheme of things; they have great strength feats that hold up as impressive even to this day yet also have showings that were highly underwhelming even for their time.

    I think they are meant to be stronger then they ended up looking on Little Garden and Oda just didn't convey their true strength very well.

    They seemed pretty strong honestly. They had been fighting twice every day for 100 years as someone pointed out. And apart from being restrained by Mr3 their other feats were pretty good like one shotting the island eater while worn down and with weapons on the verge of breaking.

    I think it's the bounties that are low,not their feats.

    There were some questionable feats as well. There was that moment where Broggy started breaking out of Mr. 3's restraints only to be stopped by Mr. 5's booger bomb which left him stunned and able to be pinned down by the wax swords. Luffy was tanking those same explosions without a sweat and even Usopp can endure being hit by them, yet a single one of them stopped Broggy in his tracks.

    They where fighting for 100 years but it wasnt as if they didnt sleep or eat food, they had a set time they would meet to duel each other everyday and then they went off to restore their energy. Little is known about the Island eater except it was a strong GL noobkilling goldfish, it lacks feats so you cant say whether Dorry and Brogy defeating it was that impressive in the grand scheme of things.

    Getting taken down so easily by Mr. 5s bugger bomb definitely isnt something I would expect from a captain from the New World, breaking free from Mr. 3s wax definitely should have been within his ability as well. The creatures from the NW alone had Apoo on the ropes when he first entered it, and all of the beasts Luffy fought against in his two years of training where stronger than he was when he first began. Someone who is an ex captain of Elbaf should be far above getting knocked on his ass by one of Mr. 5s bugger bombs

    Oda was planning on ending the series after Alabasta.

    He probably did not think much into their strength since the series was still at a early stage but they were still rather impressive for that time.

  18. #18
    They were able to

    1 Shot
    an island-eating Sea King
    with a flying slash
    using dull/broken weapons



    still one of the top 10 destructive feats in the series shown to date I think. Especially given power inflation of the series.

    Keep in mind that hundreds of chapters later, characters like Shanks was still only cracking some wood planks

    They are giant level tho
    = 1 shot hype material just like VAs

    Like others have said, they were probably stronger than they seemed.

    Their bounties, even now, are respectable. Even more so when you consider how long ago they got them.
