One Piece ワンピース [Amazon Lily Arc] : Shichibukai Boa “Snake Princess” Hancock vs Captain “Straw Hat” Luffy
“Man, tell me…how did you get onto this island? What do you want here? I’m not a fool to believe in such a ridiculous tale. I know you’re up to no good, you’re after something. You’ll never leave here alive, your fate is already sealed! Amazon Lily is a nation of woman warriors. Here, strength is beauty. Fight to the best of your ability and die an honorable death!”
Boa Hancock is among the few characters in One Piece that I consider has no power cap. The only ones thus far who were willingly able to resist her Mero Mero no Mi were Luffy and Vice Admiral Momonga (barely), the rest crumbled to dust. That is what I consider a broken Paramecia. She practically came out of the “Summit War” Saga unscathed! My favorite techniques are Pistol Kiss & Slave Arrow and even tho she doesn’t really use Salome for combat, I like that it’s huge af. Amazon Lily was an interesting arc, got to see Oda explore the female figure other than the typical type 01 he always uses, and the Gorgon Sisters ties to Fisher Tiger was an interesting backstory. Also, any arc where Luffy uses Haoshoku Haki will always leave an impression!
