It isn't a matter of "race", but an entire nation. One renowned for being the most powerful nation, right up there with Wano on the list of countries that the World Government does not want to f*** with.
They needed to rope in the Shichibukai in order to stand up to Whitebeard - you know, the other part of the three-part balance of power between the Yonkou and the World Government, and they didn't even kill him. Blackbeard was the one who did that, and with coward's tactics at that. And you're lying out of your ass with the claim that they "won" against Whitebeard - it went from war to "three-way melee" when Blackbeard showed up, and Shanks showing up stopped the whole war cold.
Frankly, you sound like a lot of the vs. debate guys I've seen who are all for "HUMANS ARE DA GREATEST!", and other stuff like that. We haven't even seen Elbaf proper, and we know Big Mom was confident that an alliance with Elbaf would guarantee her being able to find Raftel, defeat the other Yonkou, and become the Pirate King. That's a pretty big statement, and from one of the Yonkou to boot.
Wait one second..... what? Ok so you said to me
"The WG had to rope in the warlords to fight WB"
Ok what ever, then you say
"It wasn't them it was BB who killed WB"
Ya..... a warlord killed WB......because as you said the warlords were helping kill wb.
Ok but let's forget all that. You think WB stood a chance?!???
Each admiral one shot one of the commanders without and damage at all to themselves. The only one on the WB crew who could even compete with akainu kizaru aokiji sengoku and garp was WB himself.
Furthermore the only reason the WB pirates got as far as they did was due to crocodile and luffy saving ace from execution. Neither of them was part of the WB crew. All the prisoners from ID (dumb luck they even made it there) were the reason the WB pirates even had a leg in the fight. And as garp proved to us, the only one in the war who could of gotten past him to free ace was luffy due to fatherly emotions, Marco stood no chance, WB had 3 admirals to worry about.
Let's look at he warlords contribution to the fight-
Kuma- was defeated by iva (not a WB pirate)
Moria- was defeated by Jimbe (not a WB pirate)
DD- spent the whole war toying with crocodile (not a WB pirate)
Hancock- spent the war attacking both marines PX giving luffy a key to ace's cuffs and blocking px from attacking luffy.
Jimbe- actively worked against marines
BB- killed WB then actively worked against marines.
Mihawk- spent the war attacking luffy (not a WB pirate), and crocodile, (not a WB pirate) and finally he fought vista, only to retreat once shanks showed up.
Let's look at what the admirals did.
Kizaru- took Marco out of the war (also kicked luffy 4 times because he can)
Aokiji- took Jozu out of thand war
Akainu- killed ace, tricked spider squad into attacking WB, took out Iva and Izuma and Jimbe, mortally wounded WB. Took out the 10th division commander, wounded luffy.
Maybe you would have a point if it was a close fight, but it wasn't even close. WB died, jozu lost an arm, ace died, and the most serious causality to happen to the marines? Akainu got a little bloody..... but he came back and defeated Jimbe Iva Izuma and 10th division commander.....
Take away thre warlords it would of been a slightly closer fight, maybe sengoku and garp would of actually had to fight.
Take away the warlords and the ID escapees (luffy Izuma Iva Jimbe crocodile) , who were only there because of BB hypnotizing the guards at the gate. And the WB crew would of been on the wrong side of a one sided stomp.
Why were the warlords there? Why wouldn't they be. The marines didn't need them.
Idk what race is the best, the Giants are pathetic and no ammount of lifting battle ships or 1million ton punches will change that fact.
