It's not that Franky sucks, he's an useful relatively powerful crew member. It's just that comparing him with Sanji is like comparing Brook with Zoro. :shrug:

OK........

 

why are they called the MONSTER trio? I cant be the only one that feels like they have no right being called that by fans......

I vaguely remember Nami calling them that. Or was it Chopper...

I think this is the first mention. Not fully sure though.

We also have them mentioned by Nami @ TB.

 

Spoiler

 

Luffy was asking Moria to return him his crew.

 

Spoiler

 

While Moria said that Luffy mentioned a lot of names but he's only interested in Luffy, Zoro and "the blonde haired guy".

 

Nami could hear the conversation from Perona's bear and she's thinking

 

"How did that monster trio get captured right off the bat?!"

Monster Trio is in reference to outright strength. Being useful has little to do with it.
 
You can't look at Usopp, for example, and say he is a monster. Luffy? Zoro? Jinbe? Easily. Pre-TS Sanji? Yep.

I don't think either Zoro or Sanji have really done anything noteworthy post TS.


 

So saying because Sanji hasn't shown much he should be part of the M3 seems disingenuous.


Feed me and I'll be your friend forever, steal my treats and I make you into meats.

 

I'm big and I'm bad, so try not to make me mad. xD

Zoro hasn't done anything that embarrassed him post-TS. Unless you want to count being downed by sleeping gas or w/e.

Ok, but in terms of taking on powerful opponents honestly I haven't seen anything special from either Zoro or Sanji. Luffy yes the other not so much, and it would be showings against those top solid opponents that I would make a judgment on.

"Embarrassed"

 

Remember when Doflamingo blocking Sanji's DJ with his leg was "embarrassing" ? And now that same leg makes Luffy punch himself and it's whatever.

Yeah, Zoro hasn't done much outside of 1080 pound cannon. He didn't almost die from a nosebleed, break his leg, risk the mission because of his perversion, and then get stomped, however.

Wait who did Sanji get stomped by?

Doflamingo. Not like any of the Monster Trio would have done significantly better.

Remember when Doflamingo used hardening on that leg and countered after taking some damage from Luffy's Red Hawk? :o

 

Luffy was using a hardened arm to defend himself. And he punched himself.

 

Remember how Luffy only landed that Red Hawk because Law, and it was a clean hit on a Doflamingo that did not put up any form of defense ?

 

Now guess why Doflamingo was defending himself from Sanji's kicks, or avoiding them.

Ahh. Then in that context Zoro got stomped by Fujitora (not that anyone would have done better there either). But again it doesn't really detract from his M3 status, any more than Aokiji dominating Luffy after the Davy Back arc did for Luffy.

Since Doflamingo was stronger, yes.

 

And that doesn't make the damage Luffy did any less impressive.

 

Did not defend using hardening, though he used it against a Haki-less attack from Luffy.

 

There is really no way to get around Sanji being treated like a mid-tier character since the beginning of the TS.

Aye, but those instances weren't the reason Sanji is considered embarrassing. It is everything before that plus that. When is the last time Sanji looked good in a fight against non-fodders?
