Summary In phase 1058 of One Piece, it is exposed that Mihawk is actually a better swordsman than Shanks, as specified when Mihawk’s bounty is revealed.

  • Mihawk’s prize of 3.59 billion berries goes over Buggy’s prize, also after Buggy was offered the title of “Yonko,” creating it clear that Mihawk’s skill-set exceeds Shanks’.
  • The World Government thinks twice to provide either Shanks or even the recently determined Yonko a prize greater than Mihawk’s, signifying the danger he presents and also suggesting he possesses Conqueror’s Haki.
