    I actually watch the anime and I am half-ass reading the manga (because I don't want to spoil too much because I like watching the anime better), but I don't remember her doing anything impressive. I don't believe she has even had a proper fight.

    I remember she was fighting I guess evenly with Smoker. I thought she was just Crocodile level, but I'm seeing people say she is way better than Kuma, who I regard as very powerful, having his off spring nearly solo'ing the Straw Hat crew effortlessly. What am I missing? Someone enlighten me, I want to be in the know how. Why do you guys think she is so powerful?

    Probably because she has King's Haki.
    Also made Momonga stab himself.

    Hype and portrayal. Praised by Sengoku, possesses CoC and brought a VA to his knees effortlessly.
    What? Mihawk is as strong as most people rate him here. Top tier undoubtedly.

    You can't fight her without strong haki. That alone takes her out of contention from most fighters.

    If by evenly you mean Hancock had the upper hand the whole time, then yes I agree. Smoker couldn't do shit to Hancock, She broke his jutte in half and stopped him from going for luffy.
    She's stronger than Crocodile for sure. She is possibly stronger than Kuma as seen when she kicked a pacifista's head off. But this really depends on how their DF's interact. Kuma could possibly reflect her attacks, but his paws might not reflect the slave arrows. Who knows tiers can't solve everything as there factors in a fight that can affect a fight. Like Luffy's water use in his fight against Crocodile.
    Err.. A lot of people could do that. A pacifista damn near solo'd them and Hancock turned that pacifista into a headless machine with out much difficulty.

    Other things to note is she embarrassed a high end Vice Admiral who was sent to retrieve her for the marineford war. She was Praised By Sengoku the Buddah: Fleet Admiral of the Marines. And the cherry on top of all that is she has CoC which has been shown to be a sign of immense potential to the point where even the World Government feared Pre-Skip Luffy.

    Can I get some references because I don't remember any of this. I remember Momonga stabbing himself so he wouldn't get petrified but isn't like they fought or anything.

    They didn't fight because she was thought to be very essential to the war against the World Strongest Man Whitebeard, who's wrath is very well known across the seas.

    Show me the bold.

    Can you link me or tell me why he is high end?

    And the Conquers Haki as well.

    I truthfully want to see where I missed these points because I honestly don't remember.

    Just like Moria whose whole arsenal is broken with Salt Water :p I think the bold your hyping her a bit too much with that sentence. That sentence makes it seem she is more than she is worth. I'm starting to see why people recognize her as being strong, but I gotta see these panels and pages.

    Sengoku calling Hancock strong


    Hancock confirmed to have CoC.



    And technically, Momonga and Hancock didn't really "fight", but Hancok was definitely portrayed to be the stronger of the two.

    I love the Hancock fanwankbase. They have exactly four holy arguments:

    Praised by Sengoku
    -> Same goes for Magellan and Shiryuu

    Fodderized several Pacifista
    -> Nice, that puts her on a level with post-skip Sanji, Zoro, and Luffy feat wise.

    Fodderized Momonga
    -> Wasn't even a real fight, she just used her hax ability. Momonga was there to escort her to Marine Ford not fight with her. I'm not saying Momonga is stronger than her, it's just not as impressive as people claim. Again, getting the better of a Vice Admiral puts her on a level with post-skip Law/M3.

    She has CoC
    She's a tranny:psyduck
    Seriously though... Ace and Doflamingo, nuff said.

    Beat a VA like it was nothing, CoC. Also beat up tonnes of pacifistas before it was cool. Effortlessly, too.

    That's more than most characters have to show for themselves. Crocodile level? Please.

    Hancock also roughed up Sentomaru quite a bit, hyped to be as strong as the VAs', and effortlessly destroyed multiple Pacifistas. I'd say she's still a step above the Post M3.

    Fact: she's really strong.

    How strong? We don't really know. We've only seen her effortlessly stall Smoker and roflstomp a Pacifista.

    I'd personally put her on the same level as DoFla.

    You see I still can't really understand what the big fuss is about.

    She definitely has power, she knocked the heads off a bunch of Pacifista's, but at the same time I don't think they were actively engaging her so she held the advantage of course. But I don't want to take too much away from that feat, so it's a good example.

    I don't know if Sentomaru and Boa Hancock fought, it could have meant he got those bruises somewhere else, we can't exactly say it's a fact they fought and she had the upper-hand. Unless I am missing a sentence or a panel of such a thing being said or shown. And who knows how Momonga Vice Admiral would have dealt with Hancock in a fight because it seemed like she couldn't put Smoker down which comes to my next point.

    Smoker seemed to be on a lower level than Hancock, seemingly because she had Haki. And usually Haki users > None Haki users. But at the same time, he wasn't exactly being fodderised or beaten to death, he just couldn't get passed her, and she simply couldn't knock him out, which would have saved her the trouble of having to deal with him had she the power to do so.

    She does have Conquers Haki but at the same time it is underdeveloped as she stated, but again I don't want to take too much from that indication that she is strong.

    Now all your examples have changed my view on her, but from what I have seen I wouldn't put her on Marco level, nor Mihawks or an Admiral. She is definitely above and between Vice Admiral and below Admiral level, but the gap between the two is quite large. I say she fits quite comfortably most likely above Magellan in my honest opinion, could be just above Ace or below him, maybe somewhere around that level. I could change my opinion though. This is just from a glance at your scans and me remembering other characters strengths.

    If their are other scans or panels I am missing please post them, but I think I'm sort of understanding her placement.

    anyways OP it's just like dragon being hyped up or kaido. they have even lesser feats than boa hancock yet everyone and their mom is on their dicks. having a vagina dont change the fact that she powerful through hype. for all we know dragon might just be a genius strategist with crocodile-level battle ability but right now hes running on nothing but hype.

    shit's wrong translation AFAIK. she was talking about luffy's.

    She didn't try to kill Smoker or Momonga. She toyed with them at best.


    Let's make a topic like this, only about shiryu. Going to get into deep shit on that one.
