Dracule Mihawk is one of the strongest characters in One Piece and also one who holds tremendous thematic importance to Roronoa Zoro. Mihawk was first introduced in the story in the Baratie arc and who was established as the end goal for Zoro. Ever since then, Mihawk has only played small roles in the story, however, with the abolition of the Shichibukai system that took place recently, he’s expected to be more involved now. At the same time, Mihawk also has a clone now, created by none other than Dr. Vegapunk, the genius scientist of the Navy.
As fans know already, Vegapunk has managed to create powerful weapons capable of replacing the Warlords, called the Seraphims. Fans have already seen some of them in action and Mihawk’s seraphim, S-Hawk is one that could potentially be the strongest of them all.
How S-Hawk Was Created
S-Hawk is a mighty powerful Seraphim and holds tremendous power, such that Vegapunk considered it to be potentially among the strongest beings of all time. As with all the Seraphims, it is no surprise that S-Hawk was created with the power of Lineage Factor. As explained previously, Lineage Factor is essentially the DNA of the people of the One Piece world. Since Mihawk served as a member of the Warlords, the Navy or Dr. Vegapunk himself managed to get a hand on his DNA or, in other words, his Lineage Factor. This was then incorporated into the human weapons that Vegapunk was initially working on with the Pacifista project.
Bartholomew Kuma was the first person upon whom these tests were carried out. Most certainly, these were a success and, eventually, Vegapunk was able to create clones of other members of the Warlords as well, hence, the Seraphims came to be. The power of the Seraphims is known to be absolutely immense, as is evident from the fact that they are considered to be great enough to completely dismantle one of the Three Great Powers of the One Piece world. Mihawk is considered to be among the elites of the One Piece world, as such, his Seraphim, S-Hawk is likely going to be among the strongest as well.
The Swordsmanship Of S-Hawk
Mihawk is known to be the World’s Strongest Swordsman. He accomplished this at a young age and from what fans know, he trained rigorously and defeated countless swordsmen until, eventually, he rose to the very top. In the past, he’s also known to have dueled with the man who currently holds the title of one of the Four Emperors, Red-Haired Shanks. While Mihawk is almost certainly weaker than Shanks, his swordsmanship is definitely superior. Without a doubt, he is a legendary figure in the One Piece world and one that even the World Government fears to quite an extent.
This also extends to his Seraphim. As Vegapunk explained himself, the Seraphim possess the Lineage Factor of the parent bodies. As such, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that their skill and their potential should be similar. In the case of S-Hawk, the Seraphim of Dracule Mihawk, this was first seen during the invasion of Amazon Lily by the Navy. During the incident, two Seraphims were deployed and S-Hawk was one of them. When Blackbeard invaded the island, S-Hawk was seen clashing with him and forced the Yonko to use Haki to defend himself.
That certainly isn’t all. His swordsmanship is incredible by the looks of it. He was able to slice a part the giant mountain on Amazon Lily with rather ease. At the same time, he also possesses the power of the Lunarians, just like all the other Seraphims seen so far. As such, S-Hawk has tremendous durability and the ability to manipulate fire.
The Devil Fruit Powers Of S-Hawk
If all this was not enough, S-Hawk has one more trick up his sleeve and that is a Devil Fruit ability. Fans know Dracule Mihawk to be a character without any Devil Fruit powers, at least at the moment. However, the same isn’t true for S-Hawk. It appears that all the Seraphims have been modified with Devil Fruit powers. While Vegapunk failed to create copies of Paramecia type of Devil Fruits, he was able to create a substance known as Green Blood, which he managed by extracting the Lineage Factor of the Devil Fruit users. This Green Blood runs through the body of all the Seraphims and grants them Devil Fruit powers.
S-Snake has the power of the Mero Mero no Mi, while S-Shark has the power of the Sui Sui no Mi. In the case of S-Hawk, the Devil Fruit ability was recently revealed to be the Supa Supa no Mi. He was seen using these powers in the fight against Zoro and Kaku. As some fans might remember, this Devil Fruit was formerly wielded by none other than Mr. 1 of Baroque Works. This Devil Fruit allows him to turn his body into a blade. At the same time, he can produce powerful slashes and overwhelm his enemies. When Zoro clashed against him, he realized the ferocity that S-Hawk possesses.
In fact, in combat, S-Hawk proved to be just as strong as the combined forces of Zoro and Kaku. Even together, they could not defeat him for good, given that he is still active currently. S-Hawk is one of the strongest Seraphims and that goes without saying. While his Devil Fruit ability might not be the strongest among the Seraphims, It is certainly fearsome.
