Chapter 115: Haoshoku Face-Off
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.
