I dont think u got the meaning of that part of my post. While unprecedented does mean that he did unknown things, it does not mean he did them more than continuesly/on a significant high number. And thats the point, he could have been immensly cruel in certain, limited in number, instances, but in generel not be a danger to e.g. civilians at all, thus have lower bounty than i.e. Bege who might just be someone (and we already know that to be true) who causes a stir/huge incident/bring chaos whereever he is.
Moreover i dont believe someone like the collusseums voice/announcer is a credible source of info, since its his job to hype the combattants and rally the crowd in order for them to enjoy it even more.
I.e. Barto being announced as cannibal and e.g. having eaten human flesh once could be what gave him that title....but that would not mean that he is anywhere close to i.e. Jack who lays waste to entire countries and kills thousands of people when he wishes to!
so if someone was introduced as a man of "unprecedented strength" you would go like "lol maybe he can bench a lot but i bet i can do more push ups then that loser" or if someone was introduced as a man of "unprecedented intelligence" you would say "ok maybe he knows a lot about black holes, but i bet i can name more tree types then that botany not knowing slacker". Bartolomeo was apparently the top of a list of people civilians want to go away........ do you think the civilians also just want to hype up bartolomeo?
"hey joe, did you hear bartolomeo cut a guys tongue out?!?!?!?!?!??!!! he is the worst pirate to ever live"
"jack destroyed a whole town"
"but all the guy did was talk bad about luffy!!!!!"
"law cut out the hearts of 500 pirates"
"now the guy cant speak!!!!!! and he has a nose ring!!!!!"
"a nose ring? those are the worst, ok fine bartolomeo is the worst"
ok but i see your point of gatz just trying to hype the crowd........but............ if we ignore bartolomeo, gatz was 100% reasonable about everything else he said. to be fair sometimes he vastly underestimates or overestimated a character's physical strength.......BUT look at what he said about everyone
bellamy- favorite to win the whole thing- come on that is fair, I thought bellamy would win B block up until the last chapter of b block.
chinjoa- a 500m bounty legendary pirate- this isnt a lie
rebecca- undefeated- not a lie, she wasn't too impressive either
so if you say that gatz is unreliable because his job is to hype the crowd, how come he never gave anyone else an unreasonable superlative title? and do you really think that gatz could say what ever he wants to hype the crowd? if gatz called chinjoa the strongest man in the world do you really think the audience would believe him? obviously not because everyone knows that title belongs to don kreig.
and as i have already said, the list proves that civilians also recognize how horrible bartolomeo is. and you tell me. who is the public more scared of, that one guy who killed his girlfriend, or a serial killer? obviously the public wants the serial killer gone much more then the one time killer.
also, as long as we are not taking into account strength of the countries, buggy has also laid siege to towns, buggy isn't even on the towns radar. besides, if you want to talk JUST on screen evil, jack is the hero the citizens of the sea need. as far as the citizens are concerned the minks are evil human eaters, jack did them a favor by killing the minks.
side note- isn't it weird we were told how evil the minks are then they were pussy cats.......I get the fact that everyone everywhere loves luffy...... but the minks never once showed even a hint of what would make normal people think they are evil human eaters. hell even when jack showed up they were kinda reasonable to him (cat striker wasn't but....jack deserved that) even pekoms and bepo walk around and no one cares.
