Was Crocodile stronger at Marineford? Or was he holding back in Alabasta?

 During the Alabasta arc, Crocodile displayed a level of power that was initially considered overwhelming by the Straw Hat Pirates. He possessed the Logia-type Devil Fruit called the Suna Suna no Mi (Sand-Sand Fruit), which granted him the ability to control and transform into sand. He had a reputation as a Shichibukai and controlled the desert kingdom of Alabasta from the shadows. His strength was showcased through his battles with Luffy and others. At Marineford, Crocodile was present as part of the war that took place at Marine Headquarters. While he did participate in the battle, he didn't display the same level of dominance as some other powerful characters present. This has led fans to speculate that he might not have been as strong as initially portrayed in Alabasta. It's important to note that power scaling and character abilities can be subject to interpretation and development by the author. Oda often keeps details deliberately open-ended to keep the story intriguing.

What Caused Charlie Sheen's Public Meltdown


In any event, when VIPs go genuinely out of control, a marketing expert for the most part mediates for substantial harm control before they start discussing, say, tiger blood. Not so with Charlie Sheen, who in 2011 presented a progression of malicious, fantastical and supposedly drug-filled tirades to the media - - the start of a cosmic explosion of stunning outbursts he would later allude to as his "rough torpedo of truth" [source: CNN].

Child of entertainer Martin Sheen, Charlie featured on the well known parody series and CBS gold mine "Over two Men." However, in mid 2011, reports started to whirl that Sheen was vigorously manhandling drugs, making him disjointed and unequipped for working. Sheen disregarded the principles of Hollywood consideration and erupted against the show's leader maker, Chuck Lorre, considering him a "piece of s- - - ," a "savage" and a "idiotic little man" [source: The Telegraph].

This prodded a media typhoon that followed Sheen's dynamically whimsical way of behaving. Sheen guaranteed that he was clearheaded, yet his apparently frenzied statements that he was a "wizard" with veins of "tiger blood" raised doubt about that guarantee [source: Yates]. After CBS terminated Sheen in late February, he set out on a satire and talking visit. Be that as it may, the visit gathered horrifying basic audits and boos from crowds. Inside a couple of months, as Sheen's lunacy subsided, so did the public's hunger for it. As of January 2012, Sheen appears to have taken his tiger blood into relative hibernation.
