I expect the top 3 to shit on completely shit on Vergo in terms of power. As for Dfla, let's be honest here people the man is a monster. He casually stopped a guy who ripped an iceberg out of the ground with his bare hands and tossed it like a Frisbee, he dodged and sliced a giant's leg from a huge distant by flicking his finger, he is fast and has massive range. His reactions are fast enough to slice an meteor mid flight to pieces, and can effortlessly cut buildings as if they were made of clay.
Luffy might take him alone but this will be Rob Lucci x10, and to think that this guy is scared shitless of Kaido. That speaks volumes about Kaido's power, what we saw from a dying WB will be nothing compared to what a healthy Emperor can do.. That is my wager.
I personally never stated that Vergo was Dofla's strongest underling...I said strongest Armament haki user. Also the longest running underling working for Dofla. Luffy also has incredible reflexes and range with his attacks. Sure enough all of this is happening just to prevent Kaido's wrath...he most assuredly is a monster...Though his real strength may also come from the size of his zoan army. Who is to say that Dofla is scared shitless or worried over his kindgom falling apart. As we have found out Kaido is behind and apart of his biggest schemes. Not only loss of money but position could be in order. So he is protecting all of that with a sick grin.
