    No Condoriano? No thanks.. Thumbs down! (Just kidding) :P
    It was a great video! Excellent job :)

    Here's my take: (Going to put in spoiler tag so I don't ruin the video) ;)

    10: Tashigi/Tsuru (tie) - The fact that Tsuru is like 100 years old and still revered shows that she is very powerful. The fact that Tashigi is at the bottom of the list will make a certain member upset (sorry @FoolishYoungling ) :P

    9: Akainu - I'm really surprised he was so low on the list. Yes, we aren't meant to like him, but number 9? I would've pegged him for top 5 at least!

    8: Coby - I agree that first seeing him, then seeing Smoker, you can't see him rising up to Captain Level. A part of me still thinks that Capt. Coby isn't as strong as Smoker was at Capt. but I could be wrong. As for becoming Fleet Admiral, it's most likely, but NO! There is only one true Fleet Admiral for the Future :P

    7: Rocinante - We've seen so little of him so I do forget that he technically was a Marine. I think this is a good rating for him, but agree that if he managed to survive, he'd be way up the ladder.

    6: Sengoku - I agree with everything said.

    5: Aokiji - With the upcoming arcs, I'm sure we'll see a lot more of him. I highly doubt he truly joined Blackbeard so that'll make it intersting to see what he does next.

    4: Borsalino - No, no and NO! Borsalino is easily top 2! Yes, we haven't seen his true potential but I know he is easily the strongest Marine! :P

    3: Fujitora - I love this Character. Just like with Sengoku, I agree 100%

    2: Smoker - Smoker to me has always been great. He's my 3rd favorite to become Fleet Admiral.

    1: Garp - This one was obvious when I came across the top 4. Garp is really great and does deserve a top spot.
    That's my take on it! A great video, keep it up! :)

    Did Smoker even have Haki as a captain?

    I'm not sure, but I still think Capt. Smoker>Capt. Coby
    Mainly due to Smoker's Devil Fruit :)

    Well I guess I can go along with that but without DF abilities Coby is probably stronger

    Depends on whether or not you believe that Coby has the ability to use armourment.

    Tactically and hand-to-hand Coby would have to have to have the advantage. Having certain abilities makes it to where people usually rest on their laurels and they become so used to winning off of an ability. I'm sure when he was dealing with Captain level threats he would use his abilities and never run into an armourment user.

    Essentially lol

    Regardless, Smoker and Coby while captains have to be on the same tier. Remember that Smoker's first promotion came from a cover up instead of merit. Now he has definitely improved over time but I think Coby is a 'sleeper' character. I think we're supposed to routInely forget about him so that when he becomes awesome it's a surprise.

    Looking back at our list again I will say Akainu's was the most surprising for me as well. Not a fan of him but I respect his character as it has been more recently fleshed out. Some part of me tells me that his fight with Kuzan was staged to justify Kuzan's exit and infiltration into Blackbeard's crew. Likely he is the one that gave up the Revolutionary bases' location.

    Most likely there are times when the forum makes me like Akainu more than I ever would have thought. And I guess we should stop talking about Coby all together and 5 years he'll get re-introduced and all the speculation will come back.

    Great video! Thanks to all of those involved in all of the organization/execution since I can only imagine the amount of work it took.

    But in terms of what was mentioned, Coby is foreshadowed to become an admiral (not fleet admiral). I have my doubts about a second time skip simply because Oda doesn't want to mirror his peers. The time skip only happened because Luffy did not have the power to protect those he cares about. The time skip gave him the building blocks to build towards this goal. I will readily admit that Luffy is still far from the top of the powerhouse tier, but Oda's got quite a twist in a couple of years to work around this.

    In terms of the story line, it would make sense for Fujitora to take a similar route as Aokiji and relinquish his post to maintain his view of justice. This would open a spot for Coby.

    I actually disagree with the commentary on Smoker/Tashigi. Luffy and Zoro respectively have shown that they passed their Marine rivals by leaps and bounds. Thus rather than valid antagonists, they would fit as allies or at least supporters from the "enemy side". This directly leads to Aokiji, who is painted in a similar manner in terms of the story line. With his strong sense of justice, Aokiji joining Blackbeard for the sake of power or supporting him to become Pirate King makes no sense. The cliche of keeping your enemies closer would make for a rational explanation. Considering his judgement and morals, it makes sense for him to be a key double agent to help out the ultimate cause at his own expense.

    In terms of Tsuru, she is shown to be a great "support" character (she is able to heal people by "cleaning" them like laundry). We have never seen her actually fight. Plus when she was first introduced, a normal physique implied normal power (recent characters have gigantic physiques to reflect their superior power level). Moreover her respect from fellow Marines appears to stem from her sound judgement and advice versus from her combat abilities (Akainu is shown to rule by an iron fist; refer to Akainu attacking the Marine fleeing the War at Marineford). Just like Garp and Sengoku, they are more mentors/advisers rather than key antagonists (I forget his name but the Marine ranked higher than Fleet Admiral had a conversation with Sengoku that the legend of Sengoku/Garp was a significant moral booster for the younger marines, which necessitated them staying around even if in some fake title only). Speaking of which, the most recent chapter has Sengoku as the base for the comic character "Sora" (the seagull on their heads), implying he has a widespread cultural impact on the world as well.
