Zoro and Luffy is a duo that many in the animeverse praise. Zoro was the very first crew member of Luffy and has been on their journey from the very start. They were both quite strong from the very start from their series as they had both been training from long before for their journey that they intended to take. They both have a sense of pride and respect each other’s dreams and ambitions. They also hear to what the other person has to say when it comes to serious matters and respect their opinions when it comes to it.
Moreover, comparing their strength level concludes to anything because more time then not, from the very start they were shown as equally powerful people. there has been no clear defined statement by the author nor anywhere in the anime series or the manga about who is stronger. The difference between their bounties is more due to the title that they have ( Like Luffy being the captain of the ship ) then their strength. And as far as the anime is shown, they have always been portrayed equal at more then one instance
Zoro is also the one who at random instances keeps reminding Luffy of his Captain-ish duties when he has to. And the supposed way he should be acting. For instance, when Usopp left the crew and wanted to come back, Zoro was the one who stood up and said that it shouldn’t be that easy to just leave and come back and reminded Luffy the way he should be acting
