2)Competition between Shanks and Mihawk
All the fans know about the competition held between Shanks and Mihawk. All are very excited and interested in it on the day it was known. For Whitebeard, their competition is very brutal.

We can see him in tears when his captain was executed at Logue Town. he and Buggy had detached and went on their ways at Logue town. he became the famous character and Buggy became a famous clown in the series.
he has a sword in his hand and so he is a swordsman. Its name is Gryphon. For now, we don’t know the grade of Gryphon. Also, the information is unavailable on whether the Gryphon is Meito or not. But anyway with the available data it can be a rare item in One Piece. Mihawak and Shanks are having a competition with each other. And we have seen many clashes between them in the past But it’s not true that Mihawk has a Saijō Ō Wazamono grade sword and Shanks have an ordinary sword.

Kaido has an ancient mythical zoan. Through this, he can change into an eastern dragon. Big Mom have the Soru Soru no Mi. Through this, she can take souls. Blackbeard has two devil’s fruits that are Yami Yami no Mi and Gura Gura no Mi. The former one is used to invalidate other devil fruits.
