Hey everyone ! So something I've been wondering...just because a Zoan type is rare, does it still seem it's powerful? Like the former rear admiral having ancient Zoan T. rex or the Elaphant Elaphant fruit..
Ancient Zoan devil fruits are typically depicted to be stronger than their regular counterparts as they are more rare. Prime examples include X-Drake and his Tyrannosaurus devil fruit and Jack with his mammoth devil fruit. We already have a regular elephant devil fruit called Zou Zou no mi, but the ancient version is much larger and more powerful.
To add on to that tho, I just finished the fish man arc so the only action I have seen x drake in was on the archipelago and he didn't seem that good when he fought kizaru but then again all of the rookie got the ass kicked so idk
