For Kenbunshoku Haki's business, Enel is actually as good as Katakuri. Therefore, Enel can be stronger than Katakuri. Here are some of the reasons!
Huh? Enel can Kenbunshoku Haki? Yep, it is now officially revealed that Kenbunshoku Haki and Mantra that are controlled by Enel are the same thing.
Charlotte Katakuri became a tremendous threat, to be rewarded over a billion Belly, due to his Kenbunshoku Haki's gratification. Coupled with the Devil Fruit and his fighting abilities, the Katakuri became a difficult enemy to defeat.
He can almost always predict the steps of his enemy. If his enemy managed to surprise him (as Sanji dodged from his shot, or Brook destroyed Mother Caramel's photos without his time), he could still cope with the ensuing chaos and help the Big Mom group win.
Meanwhile, Mantra Enel is also quite exceptional, but its nature is different. He can not even see the future (although Enel can still predict the enemy's movement), but with the help of Goro Goro no Mi, Enel can hear all the conversations in Skypiea.
The difference, while Katakuri can trouble Luffy who has mastered Haki, Enel can be defeated when Luffy does not even know what Haki is.
But if only Enel were more serious in sharpening his knowledge, or studying other branches of Haki, he could be the strongest enemy in One Piece you know. This is why Enel can be stronger than Katakuri!
