Gotta respect the commitment. Fully willing to cut off his character's legs for the chance to do something.

I find it kinda messed up that Cory considers oneshotting HIMSELF plausible enough to worry about it.

while zoro certainly isnt a glass canon by any stretch, he's def built more for damage than tanking

I can't say as I've looked at the (largely fictional) mechanics of this (made up) gaming system, but based on the actual anime Zoro is a tank if ever there was one. Luffy takes some serious beatings, and Sanji definitely gets knocked around a time or two, but Zoro's entire character development is built around him getting beaten nearly to death.
He's introduced being tied to a post, and beaten nearly to death. He steps up to save the team by taking the totality of the damage they received in an entire adventure onto himself. During the time skip, his training basically amounts to him getting beaten to within an inch of his life every day, to the point it gives him massive scaring over his body and even his face.
Luffy tends to survive through damage avoidance, along with a large hit pool. Zoro seems to survive more through taking hits and ignoring them, because he's just that tough, more in line with the results of having a very high armor class (in his case, natural armor) in most D&D-style games.

I beg to differ. He's more like a Barbarian than a Fighter. Weird mix of high attack, and while not high defense, alot of crazy survival feats. He can do not dying fairly okay.

Mihawk's player (I forgot player name) directly states that Zoro is a better tank than Mihawk, so that's something I'd say.

I don't know how much of that 50 hp per limb that he'd have to do would be directly applied to his hp.
I know these guys are at least level 10, right? Both classes we know he's using use d8 hit dice, so before modifiers, assuming he's level 10, he could have 80 hp if he rolled actively cheatingly well, or managed to find a feat that gives max hit dice(undead and dragons are the ones I know who have those without homebrew, might be others).

Most recent character sheet we've seen is Vivi, who is level 13, I suspect the others will be around that as well. So assuming 13 and assuming con of 10(unlikely) and no other modifiers, Zoro could have a max of 104 if he got perfect rolls.

I don't think he'd survive this at all, but it is completely in character to do it.

From what I remember, you don't technically die until negative 1/2 total hp.

If he has some feats that allow him to stay standing while dying, he could easily dip well into negative hp.

This appears to be based on 3.x, and the most common way for that to work is that you die at -10 hp, regardless of your total hp.

If it's closer to Pathfinder, it's equal to the constitution stat, though.

He has previously stated exactly that. Zoro has feats that trigger when he is at negative HP that not only let him keep fighting, but deal more damage too.

Far as I know, all of that damage would apply to his full HP pool, yes.

The system is homebrew hilarity galore and Zoro is made of munchkin nonsense, plus his canon character is notoriously unkillable even by OP standards, so I'd wager his health is a lot higher than it has any right to be for a character of his level. 50hp to each leg with penalties and without maneuvers is still absolutely bonkers though.

Knowing what sort of damage Zoro eats in later arcs, I think we can surmise that he has constitution out the wazoo, probably at least +4 at this point. Adding that on to perfect HP rolls would bump his total to 156

50 each?! Wow! I did some quick estimation using the "Breaking and Entering" tables from the 3.5SRD, and came to 32 for a man's ankle from the front, 28HP if you cut from the side.

I estimated 3-4" of flesh, whose durability I guesstimated at 17HP total

[4HP/inch thickness, hardness 1, better than Ice but less than boiled leather],

and a 1" bone that took 15HP to one-shot.

[hardness 5, 10HP/inch, approximately wood]

That's a big ankle, and it's still barely more than half what the DM just quoted!

So what do I think happened? Numbers out of thin air, honestly, but if it had logic, it means either Zoros leg is thicker than I expect or denser than I expect. He is part Fishman after all!

If the DM modeled the flesh as "leather" and kept those dimensions, it's still only 37HP. Meaning Zoro's ankles are either elephant wide or his flesh is denser than leather.

5" of wood gets you 50HP with 5 hardness. Maybe the DM just thinks zoro's leg is basically a 5" bone peg.
