I think that was just Oda trying to hype. At the end he contracted it, could've contracted it as soon as he used BC if he wanted.
Maybe. But still a guess so...I actually think if there's a move DD can use to cut island in combat, it would be Overheat. There's no time constrain and the range is huge. But yeah, until we see him actually does that...
WB only split the island in two, he never destroyed it.
If I cut someone's PS3 in half it is destroyed. Destroy actually covers ''cut in half'', ''smash'', ''pulverize'' etc. as long as it makes the object terribly out of shape/function or outright ends its existence (though that doesn't mean it's irreparable since this is a fantasy/magic story and there can be powers that do that). That's why I said
And? How does that show he can destroy an island? He can destroy lives, make holes and stuffs on the island by dropping those, yeah. But until he splits/cuts/whatever an island, there's no island-buster feat for him.
And even so, that's still something only WB did (without prep or help). So my point still stands regardless.
If WB destroyed MF he'd drown.
You are never going to see anyone destroy an island. They would die.
See above for destroy's meaning!
And NOPE. He can leave only his footing/stand on some big rubble for example. Plus it's clear WB can do worse to the island since his quake can affect an area much bigger than the island (see the ocean being tilted and whatnot). Now that's what we call ''feat''! On the other hand the other guys either have not even shown an island-ranged technique or have island-ranged powers but isn't guaranteed to ''destroy'' it due to the nature of their technique.
What? Flying? Using Geppou? DD's hanging by threads? Fuji's power? What have you been reading in One Piece? No no, what have you been thinking when you wrote? You wrote yourself you thought Fuji is an island-buster and then you forget his power that lets him stay on some floating-in-the-air rubble?
But you can see what someone is capable of doing, and use logic and common sense to dictate that person would be able to do more.
Sadly not even logic or common sense support you this time. Logic says that if you don't see someone fighting or at least hear about the details or any other means then you don't know what's going on. So since we haven't seen Akainu vs Aokiji yet, we can't say they didn't try or whatever. Of course, we can't say they did try, either but that's why I always say ''if we don't know then we don't know. No need for assumption''.
As for the magma fist rain and the freezing, one doesn't even cover half the island and there's no evidence as to where that technique ranks among Akainu's arsenal while the other just...freezes.
Last I checked freezing an island does something to the island itself.
Yeah, it...freezes the island. And probably kills the citizens, animals, plants, machines etc.
And so? Don't dodge by semantic. While we didn't have the same definition of destroy, you know what I mean by ''does''. I made sure to mention the specific action done to the island as shown above with Fujitora and YOU WERE the one talking about Aokiji punching the ice to collapse/destroy the island
If he punched a frozen island he'd probably break it in pieces.
Know your own post!
It's the same power? WTF? As long as he can lift he can push down, that's obvious.
First of all, just because someone can lift doesn't mean he can push down. Fuji can push down but we know because we SAW him did it. Not just because he can lift.
And then talk about oversimplification!
Because someone can lift 5kg (AlabastaUsopp) means he can sink a whole building into the ground? Not even AlabastaZolo could do that. He could lift a house but not drive it like a nail. Because someone can lift most of the building on an island means he can sink or destroy the whole island? Sure Fuji can lift and push down, but aren't you forgetting the object that he's doing those things on?
And yeah, Fuji looked like he was doing it casually but that doesn't mean he only used a fraction of his power. He might have used all his DF power for all we know. Characters don't have to clench their teeth or look constipated to show they are using full strength. Of course, there are times when we can see the character doesn't even try but in this case it's not so clear.
