As I said my problem with Skypea isn't anything that happens in it, but the fact that it feels like it doesn't really fits the greater story.
I swear it reads like the plot of one of the non-canon movies.
I loved that fight... Also it was a major Awesome moment for Sanji. CONCASSER!
Oh, yeah, the 4 priests are one of my least favorite Quirky Miniboss Squad, but Eneru is more than enough for me

Oh the fight with Enel is one of my favorites, period.
I don’t really find the family of choice thing surrounding the Vinsmokes that compelling.
Especially since they are such dull pieces of shit. They are so utterly one-dimensional, the red one is the smarter one, the green one is the dumb one, & the blue one is the sadistic one.
And the girl is the good one. CP 9 had a better showing than these idiots.
Combined with vague elemental powers I find myself wanting a lobotomy whenever they are onscreen.

I like Ohm's creative weapon of choice and his whole philosophy of "Experience tranquility in the fucking grave". He's a fun character.
Skypiea is weird because it's tied to Jaya which I consider one of the most deceptively important arcs for several reasons while the main chunk of the saga isn't as major.
Chopper actually had a fight in Skypiea.

Yeah, that was fun
Oh and Gedatsu was fun as well, especially his miniadventure

I really loved Marineford. This is one of my favorite AMVs of it.
I don't think there's really a One Piece arc that I dislike. Every time I find myself thinking about an arc as one I could consider not that great, I start thinking about all the awesome stuff that I love in it and my opinion of that arc goes up.
Oh I can't think of an One Piece arc I'd consider bad, just some that are better than others.
The anime's artstyle got weird around Skypiea, though, everyone suddenly got really lanky, almost Brook proportions.
I can think of some character arcs that are a bit horrendous if that counts.
I too think even the worst one are still good (maybe I just find Amazon Lily and Whiskey Peak a bit "meh", but I can think some pretty good moments/ideas even there)
Which ones? I'm just curious, I promise I won't bite :3
Marineford's good, but... above the Dark Tournament and the FMA finale, really?
It’s One Piece.
People place it on a real high pedestal.
Now this might sound crazy, but that might be because a Top Ten is inherently a personal opinion and the guy who made this one just happens to find Marineford more engaging than the other two arcs you mentioned.

The Foxy Pirate thing was also a low point for me. Luffy in an afro aside, the rest was terrible.
Foxy will definitely get adapted out of the live-action show.
You can easily move Aokiji's 1st appearance or Afro Luffy somewhere else.
"Does the afro make the champion or does the champion make the afro?" truly is one of the all-time great philosophical questions.
Okay so that's how he'll fight Kizaru.
I personally consider the Foxy arc a very good arc, actually. It's exactly what it aims to be: a short, fun and entertaining arc to give some room for breathing between two big and emotionally heavy arcs (that's why I think it'd be stupid to cut it out)
Heck, I do think it's much better than Marineford. Luffy vs Foxy >>> Whatever """fight""" in Marineford. Fight me
Is there really a point of comparison between such extremely disparate arcs, one of which doesn't even last 2 volumes?

Entertainment, use of the characters, fights...
By that logic, no arc could be compared
