    Strong Headliners

    For a while, we got stuck with fodder SMILE headliners like Holdem and Dobon who got one-shotted easily. But luckily, Kaido proved his crew's worth by having strong Headliners like Hawkins, Drake and Page One. Apoo is probably a Headliner too. Just how strong do you guys think these Headliners will be? Are they as strong if not stronger than Perospero, Daifuku and Oven?

    Additionally, is it also true that regular Zoans are therefore stronger than SMILEs? Which means we can expect to see more Ancient Zoan Headliners? They can present very strong challenges for Zoro, Sanji and Law by being as strong as Dukes/Shutenmaru and close to Top Commanders in power!

    I think Oda is drawing a distinction between ones like the Six Flying Fighters and Hawkins and regular Headliners like Sheepshead and Holdem. SMILE users are weak, whereas the two members of the Six Flying Fighters are full Zoans (and ancient ones on top of that). Oda mentioned "dinosaur army" at the end of the chapter, which leads me to believe all Six Flying Fighters will be Ancient Zoans.

    Personally I believe Drake is the strongest Headliner. At the very beginning of the entry to the New World, Drake and Kid were mentioned together as two Supernovas who were making waves in the New World. Since then, Oda has hyped him up a little more than others like Hawkins and Apoo, showing him get tangled up in Doffy and Law's backstory and handle important assignments for Kaido. Even now, in his first real appearance, Hawkins mentions Drake has a special mission he cares about.

    Still the Hero.

    Luffy's onetime rivals only amounting to stepping stones for Zoro and Sanji.

    Oof.


    Fact: Oda will never introduce a character as useless as Kyuin.
