I had a really many thoughts about the Yonkos crew orders, who got the stronger crew than other ones. I kept it as thoughts until I was shocked to hear some members of the community talking about the Yonkos crews in a way which I see not just wrong, but humiliating for them. I will make it short, I will arrange the Yonko's crew powers from the least to the most powerful and after that I will conclude the reason White beard Crew, Big Mom's Crew, Kaido's crew and the most powerful is Shank's crew. I know that this is bit shocking for some of you and some would see it crazy and makes no sense, ok let me try to convince you, I will tell you what bases I judged on. First, I will be giving an example to make things easier for you. Let's say there is a class, in this class there are 2 students who has almost the same capabilities, equipment and mental qualifications. Student A wants badly to be the best student in the class while student B want to be just a good student, probably who is score the higher grades? Answer will be Student A, ok why? because the motivations and ambitions of Student A is higher than Student B. This is the thing I based on my judgement. All Yonko's have almost the same powers, they are so close in their individual powers in addition to their qualifications, the differences which caused the crews power inequality are the ambitions and motivations of the Yonko which he/she seeks to accomplish. I will start with White Beard: White beard dream was having a family. This was his motivations and ambitions, just making a happy family. In a happy families (eastern families mainly) the load fully falls on the father and sometimes the elder brother. Let us use the same measure on WB crew, we find that the power of the crew in focused mainly on Marko, there are some good fellas like Diamond head and Viesta. The rest of the crew are normal and weak members which fell for Shanks Conqueror Haki and Luffy's one in the Marineford as well. So in shorter words, to have a good and safe family you need to have a powerful dad only and that's how we've seen that someone relatively weak like Ace succeed in making it to one of the crew Captains. Therefor I believe that Blackbeard has 1 commander who could really keep up with an admiral, his powers is like 70-80% of an Admiral power which is Marko, some will be asking about Diamond head and that he pulled a good fight with Aokiji, well I respond that he had 2 Advantages which were his df which won't be affected by Aokiji's DF and starting the fight with a surprise hit which cause Aokiji to have a nose bleeding. White Beard crew overall is weak instead of his captains who are relatively strong, and among these Captains there is only 1 Captain who is strong enough to keep with an Admiral. 1 Captain who is stronger than the vice Admirals. 1 swordsman Captain who we could say that he is stronger than the vice Admirals as well. -Now to Big Mom. BM's motivations and ambitions are ruling a kingdom which contains all the races. So shortly it is building a kingdom. Ofc the power needed for a kingdom is much more than needed for having a family. That's why we see that BM crew are relatively strong, even 2nd tier fighters who are named as ministers are strong, not just the commanders. To have a kingdom you need very strong king-guards and soldiers, just like the chess. BM's Commanders are really strong, I believe that 2 of the commanders could keep up with an Admiral (70-90 Admiral power), while the third one is stronger than the vice Admirals. Rather than the commanders she has ministers who are relatively more powerful and stronger in comparing to WB's other Captains than Marko and Diamond head maybe Viesta as well. -Kaido. This man is totally insane, what would you expect from the army of a man who loves wars? We saw how his 2rd Commander wasn't afraid to attack a ship full with powerful marines and yet he succeed in taking some of the marine ships down. Kaido's motivations and ambitions are making major wars. This is insane, they are war machines, they fear nothing that's why I believe that using the conqueror haki to take down some Kaido's crew mates won't work. Kaido's army majority are gifted, they have smile devil fruits in addition to them being war machines. Being a member of Kaido's crew means being a beast or a war machine who bores unimaginable circumstances. After those come the commanders who are named as disasters. I believe that Kaido has a well trained 1st Commander who is capable of beating down an admiral (110-120 of an admiral power) due the very hard circumstances and wars he mastered, the rest 2 disasters could keep up with the Admirals. His normal crew members are gifters. -Shanks, From what I've seen, Shanks motivations and ambitions are maintaining the peace. Stopping a war requires more powerful parties to interfere and stop them, they are stronger than hosting them and Shanks is the one acting this role, that's why I put him on the top of this list. I think that Shanks at least have 2-3 members who are capable to beating an Admiral (110-130%) due to the nature of his ambitions. Rest of his crew are very powerful since he doesn't recruit anyone who isn't powerful enough. As we have seen in the MarineFord arc, from all the remaining WB Pirate he didn't offer someone to join him than Marko which clearly shows that Shank's requirements and standards for his crew members are very high that people like Diamond head and Viesta aren't at the required level yet. I believe that's why the Marine got afraid after seeing his skip, at the end last thing they want to do is fighting a crew which their majority of the members are meant to be keeping up with powerful vice Admirals and Admirals.
