When the Haoshoku Haki of the two clashed against each other, A roar was issued and the world dimmed.
This was no longer a simple collision of strength, this turned into … A Haoshoku Haki face-off.
Cracks appeared in the air and thunder roared due to this collision. This gave the illusion that the void was about to break apart.
The few white clouds that were present in the sky suddenly darkened.
In the underground prison in the base, Diamante who was detained there opened his eyes, he grinned.
This Haki… I am not wrong.
“I said that this won’t be the end… That this base will be completely destroyed, and that will be your end.”
Diamante thought about Roja’s figure, His face revealed a strange smile full of mockery As if he could already see Roja dies in despair and the Marine base completely destroyed.
Doflamingo expression changed, the signs that he just saw was that of Haoshoku Haki confrontation.
He obviously didn’t think that Roja could even use the Haoshoku.
Doflamingo had long since collected Roja’s information, but unfortunately, that information was about the Roja from the camp and not the current Roja.
Even though there was some intelligence about him in the West blue, but those kind of information were messy, some people would even boast and say that Roja had the power of a god, No one would believe such information.
Thinking that Roja didn’t stay that long in the west blue, Doflamingo evaluated Roja by the information from before, but him being able to use the Haoshoku wasn’t found in any piece of information he collected.
Two people used the most powerful type of Haki while facing each other, this kind of collision would turn the white clouds black and would tear the earth apart.
Because the impact originated from Roja’s sword and Doflamingos leg, all the force was collected in that spot which didn’t affect the Marines.
But, they saw the scene change, and heard roars of thunder, they simply couldn’t calm down, for them, this seemed like they were mortals witnessing a fight between gods.
The Thunder kept falling down, shocking every Marine present.
He couldn’t calm down, Doflamingo knew, He knew that in this confrontation he was at a disadvantage, It was so obvious that shock could be seen all over his face.
If the gap was small between the two, then it wouldn’t be so obvious, it won’t be easy to notice the difference in power!
In other words, Roja’s Haoshoku Haki is stronger than his, But not by a little bit.
How can this be?
This face-off ended because there was such a gap in strength, the face-off didn’t last long, it only lasted for a few breaths, and between Roja and Doflamingo, a storm formed.
The storm didn’t rush toward Roja at all.
All the waves rushed toward Doflamingo, His pink coat kept on fluttering and cracks like a spider web formed under his feet.
The result is already obvious.
Doflamingo couldn’t face Roja’s Haoshoku and was utterly defeated in front of it.
“Impossible… This kind of Haoshoku… Who exactly are you?”
Even though Doflamingo didn’t receive any physical damage, but his pride received a critical one, He looked at Roja as his heart was confused, He couldn’t help but wonder who is this guy.
His Haoshoku was actually so much stronger than his, he felt like he was facing Shanks right now.
“Monkey.D.Roja, You should already know my identity and everything about me.”
Roja lightly watched Doflamingo.
Doflamingo took a deep breath and barely calmed down, but he no longer had his arrogant look on his face.
The Haoshoku Haki.
It means more than the strength of the holder, it means that he had the qualification to be a king.
The seas had a lot of people capable of using it, but only one person will have that position at the end.
In the same era, everyone who holds Haoshoku face each other, no matter their status, at the end there would only be one winner.
“At first I thought that you are a Marine, but it doesn’t seem so now.” Doflamingo’s evil smile returned to his face when he looked at Roja.
“The identity you talked about was referring to this …”
Roja listened to Doflamingo’s words and suddenly laughed, Roja’s eyes looked at him with deep gaze and said: “Marine or Pirate… Is there any difference?”
Doflamingo looked at Roja deeply, as if he understood his meaning and once again smiled evilly.
“Is that so… Fuffuffuffuffu…”
The so-called qualification of the king is not just that he could become the king one day, it means that he won’t surrender to the rules, he won’t surrender to others and if he did, he won’t have that qualification.
Almost no Marine had Haoshoku and this is the reason.
In fact, Who said that the Marines should succumb to the rules and surrender to others? Garp shook the sea even though he was only a vice-admiral, he refused the promotion to be an admiral and even if Sengoku ordered him to do something he didn’t want, he will completely ignore it.
Roja was Garp’s nephew, with this kind of mentality, him having the Haoshoku isn’t surprising at all.
On the harbor, other than Roja and Doflamingo, there is no one. All the Marine have already retreated to a very far place.
After they saw the Haoshoku just now, they understood that they will only burden Roja if they stayed, So they retreated to the other side of the island.
They would look back sometimes and look at Roja and Doflamingo, they couldn’t hear what they were saying all they could do now was feeling nervous as they turned away again.
The sky was dark, the wind continued to whistle and the atmosphere once again stagnated.
Chapter 116: Roja Vs Doflamingo
West blue, The sky was cloudy, it appeared gloomy and depressing, Two large warships are moving toward the first base.
In both warships, there is a total of three high officers, Two rear admirals, and a vice-admiral.
This Vice admiral is really special.
And that’s because he is called… Garp. (Tl: loooool RIP Mingo.)
Garp was standing on the deck while performing the mysterious standing sleep, and the other two were standing behind and looking at the sea.
“We’ll be there in a few hours.”
“Vice-admiral Garp doesn’t look worried at all …”
The two of them were relaxed, laughing with each other, if Garp wasn’t worried there was no need for them to worry. They estimated that there will not be an accident.
Suddenly, a Marine rushed with panic all over his face.
div data-block="true" data-editor="9t3ta" data-offset-key="dpmtr-0-0">
“What is it!”
Before he could get to Garp, one of the rear admirals stopped him, he didn’t want him to disturb Garp’s sleep, so he frowned while scolding the Marine.
“What is there to be so nervous about?”
The Marine stopped while cold sweat was apparent on his forehead, he was very nervous, he looked at the rear admiral before him and said while trembling.
“Sir… Big problem! We… just received information… That DonQuixote… Doflamingo… Appeared in the first base of the west blue.”
The sound of this Marine echoed throughout the warship.
Doflamingo… Appeared in the first base?
The expression of the two changed, They had a really bad feeling about this.
Doflamingo already rushed toward the first base but they still have a few hours before they could reach there which was really bad.
Their faces paled.
At the same time, Everyone on the warship stopped after hearing this news, horror appeared on every one of their faces.
The atmosphere suddenly changed, the white clouds suddenly turned Dark.
“It seems that it will be raining soon.”
In that silence, Suddenly Garp said with his eyes sleepy, he looked at the dark clouds in the sky and murmured.
After that, he turned around and saw that the expression of all people on the warship didn’t seems right, he made a strange expression as he said.
“What is it? … What happened?”
The Harbor of the base.
Doflamingo didn’t continue speaking, he stretched his hand while his face still had that evil smile, he didn’t come here to chat, he comes here for just one reason and that is to kill Roja.
Even if Roja did have Haoshoku, it didn’t matter, He didn’t need to say anything because his purpose was clear.
The next Moment, Doflamingo’s killing intent soared, he made a claw with his hand and waved toward Roja.
Five threads emerged from the tips of his fingers which seemed sharp enough to cut steel, the threads were almost invisible as they rushed toward Roja.
Even if they were really invisible, Roja used his Kenbunshoku Haki to capture their trajectory, he was calm as he swept his sword.
Sword Flow, Cremate!
A pillar of flames rose, violent and unstoppable.
Without thinking Roja directly used his flames, with people such as Doflamingo as his opponent he didn’t need to hold back.
Doflamingo wasn’t like Diamante, he wasn’t careless, from the information he gathered he knew that Roja has an ability to wield flames.
So, when Roja used it, he wasn’t surprised and didn’t panic, he didn’t even avoid as his hands just kept on waving.
The flames in front of him were cut apart, and at the same time, five threads collided against Roja’s sword.
Even though those threads had the sharpness and toughness of steel, they were strangely flexible.
Suddenly sparks started to fly from the collision.
Doflamingo’s attack didn’t work so he used the other hand.
This time Doflamingo the threads weren’t invisible, they were five colored thread the size of a nail that rushed toward Roja.
Facing this attack, Roja directly used Soru, as he moved tens of mater from his position.
After avoiding this attack, Roja looked at Doflamingo and waved his sword.
A red crescent-shaped sword energy rushed toward Doflamingo while it brought every building on its way down.
Doflamingo’s expression was the same, he was shaking the flames, then he suddenly stretched his hand forward.
“Kumo no Sugaki!”
The threads formed a spider web in front of Doflamingo, A dark color was attached to the Threads that formed that web which is the effects of the Busoshoku Hardening.
Roja attack hit the spider web directly, with the collision came the sound of metal hitting against another metal.
Sparks scattered while the spider web and Getsuga Tensho tried to push each other.
Then suddenly Getsuga Tensho rushed forward like crazy, the spider web scattered and deformed into the shape of a basketball net, But he still couldn’t get through as this spider web was really though.
Doflamingo stood behind his spider web while showing his evil smile to Roja, seems that he expected this, Those threads were as though as steel but still as flexible as a spider’s web, and after attaching Haki to it, it was almost impossible to cut through it.
Doflamingo was relaxed as if the outcome of this fight was in his hands from the very beginning.
After the sider web Blocked Roja’s attack, Doflamingo stretched his hand and made a palm in Roja’s direction.
Countless threads combined together and formed an extremely thick one, then rushed toward Roja with an extremely fast speed.
This thread was destroying everything on its way, and suddenly the thread was on top of Roja, the line appeared at the base behind him.
Obviously, the base was split in two. And even against such attack, Roja’s expression didn’t change, he just waved the sword in his hand.
Hiru and Doflamingo’s attack collided, and roars sounded.
