Round 1- East Blue

UPDATE: Voting close.  Scroll down to see results.

In the name of my boss, Joker, the underworld broker. I am running a counter underground tournament. In which participation is only via invitation and limited to about 20 people. And it will take place via private message. For example, Round 1 is the Low Tier buy in. In which 20 of the 180 participants will participate. At the end of the round, we will eliminated 17 of them and only 3 will remained to participate on the next tier tournament.


So here is the rule, you, individually, have 8 votes in total. This is done by listing the 4 strongest from below from 1 being the strongest to 4 being the weakest of the strongest. You can also rank the 4 you deemed the weakest. Though please clarify which the order in which you rank, who is the fourth, or third, or second, or the weakest. Points will awarded as below:

Strongest 1st place: 10 pt, 2nd place: 7pt, 5pt, and then 3pt
Weakest 1st place: -5pt, 2nd place: -3pt, 3rd place: -2pt, 4th place: -1pt

The three highest point scorer will move to the next round. After I received all my replies back. I will tally the result, and send you the next round. All characters unless noted as post time skipped are consider only the feats and knowledge pre timeskipped from the manga/anime.
