    You raise a very good point here actually, but I'd hesitate to say that the Goku who died against Raditz would be able to keep up with Luffy in Gear 4th

    I think Goku's level when he fought Nappa and Vegeta would make it more interesting, but it's really difficult to draw comparisons since the nature of powers in the DBZ universe (giant ki blasts etc) are more well equipped to destroy planets than say, the Gomu Gomu no Mi, meaning the DBZ universe characters will always seem more powerful because of feats

    Yeah. I thought the same thing when I saw this battle.

    However, I'm going with Goku here.

    Goku is a universe buster, massively faster than light, universe level durability, can fly, teleport and casually destroy planets with a casual Ki blast in base form on top of that he has 6 different forms that all boost his power and he can use kaioken on top of that. Yeah...

    There is no battle scene of Shanks involved in One Piece yet. However, one day there will be add new episodes of Shanks involve battle when the time comes. We know that Shanks has that kind of ability called Haki. Even Luffy has that kind of ability called Haki too. So a question, would any characters in Dragonball Z and Super can make it to stop Shanks and Luffy?

    Also, I would like to add a few things about Devil Fruits with natures of Lava, Light, Ice, Dark Dark, and Barrier- Barrier. So a question, would any characters in Dragonball S and Super can make it to stop these characters that has Devil Fruits with Lava, Ice, Light, Dark Dark, and Barrier-Barrier in One Piece?

    I really can't see any OP character comes even close in terms of strenght near Goku, but that's fine diferent universe. Anyhow OP >>> DB in every other field.

    Not even a match,Son Goku is the most powerful anime character ever,Ichigo will be the humble second,and Dragon Ball Z or GT is still better than OP.
    Luffy will never be strong,he will be allways a guy who makes to much noise and eat too much.
    I don't believe in his power ups anymore,bahh!

    I have been always huge fan of Dragonball Z since I was a little boy. I I know nothing much anything about One Piece. I always thought Goku is most one powerful character for all the time in anime tv series than other most characters from other anime tv series. Later, I became an older and started to watch over 800 episodes in One Piece. One Piece changed my life and perspective. Because I simple learned the truth and facts about this ability called Haki. Even they’re from earth only, not other different universes. Maybe Japenses people in Japan would give simple answers instead where I and other people aren’t from Japan.

    Compare Luffy with other main characters like Son Goku,Ichigo or Inuyasha and you'll understand my point,the japanese can say what they want.
    These 3 characters don't use haki,they use ki,reiatsu and youki.
    Comparing these 3 power types with haki i see a huge supremacy of the first 3.
    Luffy can't keep his armament enough time to defend himself from Mingo's piercing attacks for a few seconds.
    When he uses it at full power he has time limit.
    Son Goku trainned allways to get stronger than his enemies.
    Ichigo trainned in few days to become stronger than most shinigami who trainned for years.
    Inuyasha has a high class demon blood that makes him very strong even for a half demon.
    Luffy is the son of Dragon,he has all types of haki and he is still fighting pathetically after more than 800 episodes.
    You wouldn't believe how many times i mentioned this here.
    Luffy is being wasted like Naruto was in the entire series.
    The story is progressing but Luffy isn't.
    I would have something better to say about him when Oda decides to give him a serious power up since he has failed to do that until now.

    Dragon Ball is a manga where the protagonist is being overpowered as hell . It's a fighting manga . One Piece is all about the story telling and the good narrative skills of its author Oda . As Oda said " in One Piece , there should never be a fight which lasts more than 1 chapter " , ( he didn't keep his words for Katakuri fight ) , but anyway this means that One Piece isn't about fighting . So to answer the question , i'd go with Goku . In Dragon Ball chapter 1 , bullets couldn't even scratch the little Goku's body .

    However , One Piece >> Dragon Ball

    One Piece is not about fights because if i watch those fights i will sleep,that's why.
    Pirates fighting to KO enemies,how boring!
    How can a mangaka create a main character noisy,goofy,stupid,naive,assexual and weak?
    At least if he is dumb like brick he should be strong when he fights.
    And if One Piece is not about fights,why did Luffy train 2 years in Luscaina with Rayleigh?
    If he still need to have a ton of help just to beat a nobody like Mingo he should spend those 2 years with Hancock at Amazon Lily instead!
    And other problem is some artists out there saying shipping Luffy with her would ruin One Piece...
    Getting him killed in the end would be even better,i could tell this to those artists!
    Son Goku or Ichigo are much better than Luffy.
    One Piece will never conquer my respect as Dragon Ball and Bleach had.
    Oda has done everything he could to make me hate Luffy instead of respecting him.

    You have been really negative and hateful towards OP lately and comment on threads like that too. Just wondering why you are here if you hate it so much? This is a OP fan forum after all.

    Don't put other series against Dragon Ball... there are no Planet-Busters in One Piece.

    The other day, I’ve discussed with someone about One Piece and Dragonball Z/Super. I’ve told him I believe Dragonball Z/Super can beat all characters in One Piece. He said I need to watch One Piece first before I can become understand better and realize how it is impossible for most characters in Dragonball Z/Super can’t guarantee beat some these characters in One Piece. It’s just that most people don’t want to admit that they don’t want to agree with the truth of facts that make sense. I’m definitely love Dragonball Z/Super, but now One Piece changed my life. I love One Piece more than Z/Super because it is making perfect storytelling, introducing to many individual characters about who they are, where they come from, and what do they do. Most people don’t like to admit that they don’t want to agree with the truth of facts that make sense. One Piece isn’t always about strength, it is all about possibilities of their abilities that can stop other each person/monster. One Piece is crazy shit than I can imagine. One Piece is more likely show how the world works. The people can tired, hungry, suffer, injury, gain experience, gain knowledge, and improve skills. That is how characters can show signs of their behaviors and minds in One Piece. One Piece is so a big example of how the world work like our world. One Piece is a perfect organization with a story since the beginning until it is still making more new episodes.

    This is one of the main reasons why i'm not watching it.
    One Piece should be a fantasy world,and fantasy worlds don't work like the real world.
    Why do i watch shounen anime?
    Because i want to watch the villains acting evil and the being punished for that with defeat or death,in the real world they do shit and they get away with it.
    If a mangaka is building a character to give him limitations on his power,why does he build that character?
    Characters can get tired,hungry,can suffer,injury,gain experience,gain knowledge and improve skills,true.
    But in an anime they should have no limitations.
    I believe characters in an anime are not like animals who give up something to gain another,like lions being strong and loosing stamina and top speed and cheetas having speed but loosing power.
    In animes,characters can have powers,they can get tired but they can still fight,if i watch one of the shounen animes with crazy fights it gets boring to me when the character gets tired,hungry,can suffer,injury,gain experience,gain knowledge and improve skills and in the end he can only get his ass kicked because he is limited just for that purpose.
    After that i will think animes are fantasy,a dream of some producer where characters have powers we can only dream to have but full of annoying limitations that will make us think those powers are useless.
    I've been watching this in some of the most famous shounen and the problem is getting worse,characters have a power that is growing slowly and when that power reaches his prime,they can loose it,die or use it with time timit.
    If anime characters are full of awesome powers in a fantasy world but full of sacrifices to use those powers,am i really watching anime?
    I had question myself about this many times and the answer is allways this:
    For most magakas supernatural powers are superior to the natural,it give more power or abilities,in the end they are frail just like humans are.
    This is wrong,supernatural gives more power and abilities without sacrifices,and makes someone similiar to a God.
    This way all the battles would be crazy,epic,cause huge environmental destruction and the enemies would be defeated by the most powerfull soul of the hero.
    This should be the rule shounen animes should follow,but it's only my opinion.
