With this arc nearing its peak, who do you think will all join Luffy's alliance against Kaido?
me with my dubs. Check em
I find it more likely he's a fairly high ranked commander in Kaidou's army now.
Also I'm very much looking forward to the return of Urouge and Bege.
They're the only ones yet to appear in some form since the timeskip.
inb4 he shows up to help Sanji & co who dearly need it
I really doubt that Luffy and Moria could work together..
I just want to learn more about Absalom's career as a crack-journalist.
It sounds hilarious.
Is Aokiji with him because he wants to take out the level 6 guys or has departure from the marines given Aokiji back the chance to dream?
I'm sure that he has his own plans and because of it will gladly team up with Law and Strawhat. He must know something about the Marines that made him quit, so I'm sure that he would be down for turning the world upside down.
I just realized he could totally be on that ship, but I doubt it. I want him on the crew already.
Moria's definitely got a dream post-time skip. Besides, he's also got a reason to want Kaido dead. It's perfect.
Whitebeard never wanted One Piece because family.
Shanks never wanted One Piece because he wants Luffy to find it.
Big Mam never wanted One Piece because sweets.
Kaidou however is amassing an army and could really make a play for it.
Any reasons or alternative dreams that might make Kaidou not care about OP?
Is the army just for overpowering the other yonkou to get there or something else?
Any credence to the idea that smilies confer some sort of control to Doflamingo?
Meanwhile, somewhere in the new world.
He supposedly quit because he was curious to see what the other side was like. He very well may be the last Shichibukai
Kaidou once fought Moria to a standstill.
Weakest of the Yonkou.
Kaidou killed ALL of Moriah's crew and left Moriah anally devestated.
That's why Moriah decided to make an army of zombies.
If he was the last Shichibukai, then you're saying he's also the same person who cut off Z's arm 10 years prior, which seems incredibly unlikely. Also, Drake said that to Kizaru, he couldn't very well tell him he knew something about the Marines were corrupt, but there may have been a hint of truth in it.
As long as he is alive. No matter which side he's on. The chance of seeing zombie Whitebeard and Ace remains. Moria's power can rule the world in the wrong hands. No wonder the Gorosei wanted him dead.
I'm more interested in who the next Shichibukai are going to be. With Law denounced and Doflamingo on his way out (unless he pulls some strings) we're left with two more empty spots.
Didn't the Caribou cover story kind of imply that Drake is with Kaidou?
Provided no zombie or moriah victim is ever exposed to sunlight.
That's a pretty big weakness.
Yes it did but it's not been outright stated so it can still be speculated.
Also Drake might just want that Island for his own, which would also make sense.
There is an unnamed shichibukai too.
I believe it's whoever cut Z's arm off during the timeskip but I'm not sure if that's canon.
they would just be able to use whitebeards body, also i dont think zombies can use DF powers, and they dont have the previous owner of the bodies skills, just physical prowess, whitebeard may have some potential in that, but when he died his body was that of a extremely old man, so unless it was restored somehow to what it was in his prime it wouldnt be to useful, he would also need the shadow of someone powerful enough to even make use of the body, which i doubt he is strong enough to do, and ace's strenght was mostly his DF and skill, so his body wouldnt be something moria could use well either, yes his power is strong, but there are alot of draw backs and weaknesses, i doubt he could rule the world with it, with a big enough army i would say MAYBE he could be yonkou level. but i doubt even that
Gorilla fruit big punch to someone's face when?
I don't think he's cool enough to be endgame material, though I suppose is title demands it.
Fastest link I could find.
He's Akainu's boss. The guy above the fleet admiral.
The guy second only to the Gorosei.
Would you guys care if Diamante and Pica didn't have devil fruits? I think Diamante may have some sharp or manipulative devil fruit, but I don't know about Pica, unless he has the Rocket-Rocket fruit or something.
What's his significance then?
Son of the Shogun?
Just because he ate the dragon fruit?
Will you ever stop being mad he gets Nami & Robin's tits whenever he wants?
I would very much like Diamante to not have a fruit.
A straight brawler would be a nice change, same goes for Lao G as it happens.
Pica however I would be fine with having a fruit though.
I just don't find him that interesting yet. Maybe he has a Smilie.
>/a/ - Anime & Manga
Sexy nami reporting in
Do you think Big Mom's going to be upset he's fondling her daughter before marriage?
She might, but she won't get a say once Buggy
becomes a Yonko.
The way things have gone for him I can see it.
The problem is the comedy armor will only take him so far.
Mr. 1, Whitebeard & Mr. 3 saw through him.
If a character in the manga apart from Luffy & co can detect his weakness, so can others.
what was his weakness?
But Alvida isn't Big Mom's daughter. Lola is.
not even mihawk could kill him, his "weakness" is that he as a person is weak and he is retarded, he probably has one of the strongest DF powers we have seen, and if he hasnt gotten atleast a little stronger over the past 2 years, id be suprised
"his weakness" in as much as he is not strong.
What i'm hoping that somewhere along the time skip he gets some real power, to bring him back to being relevant.
Perhaps some creative new skills or ways to use his fruit, or a massive crew that rivals the Yonkou. The world powers (admirals, shichibukai, yonkou) are crumbling, and Oda needs to introduce new ones to keep the balance. I'd rather a few be old characters, (Buggy, Foxxy, Lucci, Enel) so gimmicks don't get old and we can see these characters with some real power.
When does it say this?
That's wrong. Elmy's Lola's mother.
>Moria shows up
>he's slim and dashing
>helps out Luffy with Kaido
>outlives Dofla, who talked shit at him at Marineford
He was on Roger's ship.
The first time around he went all the way around the grandline and remained a mook tier opponent nami could, and did, beat.
He spent the timeskip coasting on his shichi status with his blindly loyal followers.
I like Buggy as much as anyone else but strong he is not.
He also has no real strength.
Apart from some silly " split into a million parts, go inside and choke someone" ides his fruit has no offensive capabilities.
Not really, he has a pretty massive army of criminals on his side so he can just sit back and let them do the fighting if need be.
Get with the program.
During Thiller Bark, towards the end.
This is as close as I can find on short notice.
I think Kaidou is mentioned specifically in a chapter close to this one but I'm not sure which.
doesnt he talk about it while laying in bed playing around with luffy with his shadow?
Those criminals can't do shit against a lot of the strong people in the new world.
The kind of people who can tell Buggy is full of shit.
It's pretty nice on Oda's part really, makes the timeskip seem more justified.
Moriah lost everything on the new world to Kaidou.
Croc suffered a heavy loss to Whitebeard.
Don Krieg got his shit pushed by Mihawk (though that was in paradise).
Oda put a lot of stuff in about losing everything before Kuma split the SH up.
>seeing the end of Saobody
>"MORIAH WAS RIGHT"
>arc nearing it's peak
>Kaidou has a reason to show up
>Dragon has a reason to show up
>More marines have a reason to show up
>Kidd/Hawkins/Apoo have a reason to show up
>Jinbei has a reason to show up
>Non of the big fights have even started yet, aside maybe from Franky's
I haven't even begun to cum.
I never doubted Oda, he is the master of forshadowing.
Or does he just make stuff up while he goes, and later expand on that, like Kubo. Does Oda have a plan or is he planning to have a plan?
I have doubted.
Buggy must be a good fuck. Just imagine him levitating his cock and pushing it all the way in, with the back of it diappearing in the vagoo. It must be glorious.
Of course he must be looking back once in a while and expend on some stuff, but most of the time it's legit forshadowing.
For example, back at Sabaody island when Luffy ruined the slave auction, a guy panicked and called Doflamingo to ask him to do something about it. Doflamingo didn't give a fuck and said that slaves are no longer worth it and the business of the future are Smiles. At that moment we had no idea what he was talking about and it was only revealed in Punk Hazard
Oda has one piece completely planned out since day one, he will draw the second last chapter of one piece, retire, and then say "the last chapter? if you want it you will have to find it, I left it in that place!"
It would be so glorious i wouldnt even be mad
It's probably half and half. I bet there's a huge amount of stuff that he's got up his sleeve and more-or-less completely planned out, but then you get stuff like the beginning of this arc where he was mostly winging it.
>implying zombies are anyway near the level of their original bodies
Whitebeard's zombie must be vice-admiral level at best
OH MY SHIT, I DIDNT EVEN NOTICE THAT BEFORE
>nearing it's peak
Have you even read One Piece? If this was Alabasta Luffy would just be getting out of the cage in the casino. This arc's got AT LEAST another year on it.
I want Oda to publish a devil fruit encyclopedia when the manga is over
i wonder, how does the back of the penis feel? i dont know since that parts usually attached to my torso
there is apperently a book in the OP universe that has all the devil fruits, if oda could print something like that, and it include devil fruits that will have not been seen in the entirety of the manga, that would be pretty based
never bought a one piece manga before but i would buy this
i bet you wish you where buggy now, so you could feel it
I feel like Buggy is being set up to do something really significant at some point in the manga
He was on Roger's crew, he clearly has tons of potential.
Any fruit can be powerful in the right hands. Buggy didn't even want to eat one.
If Buggy could use Color of Observation, he would be hard for anyone to beat, since he can always dodge.
This is my dream.
he cant always dodge, they could always crush the bottom of his feet that have to stay on the ground
Then he should learn soru
His Jolly Roger has always been a Smile with a cross through it.
luffy didnt want a devil fruit either, and buggy despite being bottom tier trash, has still accomplished quite a bit, even before marineford sillyness, he wants to be the richest man in the world, and his does put a large amount of effort towards that, I wouldnt be suprised if he got just a little stronger after atleast observing the idiots under his control and seeing what they are capable off, after all, the stronger he can appear, the more troops he can amass, and the more wealth he can obtain
They'd have to know to aim for his feet first.
this makes me think. What is the range of his fruit? could he leave his feet somewhere on the other side of the world and just fly around?
he would be so overpowered if he learned any of the combat skills shown in enes lobby or haki, his fruit is so good, altho im kinda glad he is weak, it helps show that just having a good devil fruit doesnt make you the best
Did you read Impel Down?
Buggy did survive all those levels of Impel Down. That's pretty impressive in itself.
I think Buggy is meant to be more of an Usopp-like character. He's weak, but he can get by with occasional cleverness and bluffs.
i dont recall him mentioning a distance limit
There's actually a graph of this somewhere. You'll have to look it up yourself though.
That makes me remember. Law's Jolly Roger has Doffy's one in it. Uncrossed. Indicating a relationship before any was mentioned.
This symbol might mean something. Doffy has it crossed out. Is it a statement?
His limit is 50 Bara-Baras as stated by Oda.
Luffy can stretch to 50 Gomu-Gomus.
Buggy's range is finite though, but Oda wants to keep it under wraps.
They're called the "Heart" pirates. Which is the missing card from Pica, Trebol and Diamante.
what if law works for the gorosei and thats their symbol
You just use his height as a reference.
We know that now. I'm talking about in the sabaody days.
We already know that Doflamingo was a fairly big part of Law's childhood, so there's that
There some reasonable chance of a Cora-san flashback.
More answers will come with that...and probably more questions.
Damn you Oda.
whos the bottom left guy?
Connect the dots, retard
In a previous threat somebody asked the same. Use your brain for a little bit. We have Luffy, Ace and Dragon. Who's left in the family? That's right, Rouge. I mean, Roger.
Actually, it's Garp.
Garp I think.
Anon, they have to learn to pay more attention. We won't always be there to spoonfeed
just thought it was a wanted paper so i excluded garp from the possibilities
I wonder what is Dragon's bounty
Is it higher than Jack's?
Dragon is the most wanted man on the planet.
People think that necessitates the highest possible bounty and therefore revealing it caps all others.
Is this arc the first time the Revs have actually done anything?
Does the bridge thing with Robin count?
Well, they did something in Luffy's flashback
They saved some unemployed criminals...and Sabo. (SaboIsDeadStopTalkingAboutItFags can suck it one more)
Whoop de do.
>They saved some unemployed criminals...and Sabo
And a shitload of civilians
Anyone else prefer time skip Robin?
I actually don't care either way about Robin or Nami.
I'm still getting used to TS Franky though. It's been a hard sell.
I prefer hypothetical short haired Robin
I'd like post-TS Franky a lot better if the pompadour was his standard hairstyle. He just doesn't look like Franky without it.
Bounties in One Piece, just as Power levels in Dragonball, became too high too soon. Luffy already had an immense bounty in East Blue. It skyrocketed after his role in the destruction of world's most glorified court house. How much money does the government have to spare?
old Robin > time skip Nami > old Nami > time skip Robin
I fucking love timeskip Robin. I get fucking hard whenever she does that little chuckle.
They had also liberated some other country god knows where after Enies Lobby when Dragon sees Luffy in the newspaper with his new bounty. Goddamnit I want Dragon to surprise Luffy on some new world island soon.
I would surround myself with all versions of Robin.
Sweater Robin is best Robin and best everything
>How much money does the government have to spare?
>implying anyone is actually hunting people with bounties that high
I guess there is people like Pekom, but I don't know how he delivers them.
My favorites are Tequila Wolf Prisoner Robin and Dressrova Undercover Robin
What if the government just doesn't bother to place a higher bounty on the Yonkou or Dragon. They are probably the only ones with the power to take them down.
Pirates can't hunt Pirates.
The existence of a sufficiently strong bounty hunter is a fair question.
There was that one guy from Luffy's Block but he doesn't seem all that.
Shichi's might do it from time to time.
Oda could just sideswipe us by having the bounty poster say "admission to noble" or "name your price" written on it.
Well, Pekom keeps bounties with him, so I guess he does some hunting. Maybe he captures a pirate and then he has a deal with someone to cash it.
I find it more likely he just wants to keep track of the movers and shakers.
Recruitment is probably an important part of Yonkou-hood.
gecko moria could potentially be the kabuto of OP if Oda were to fall to Kishi's levels. He can keep using dead bodies whilst using strong allies safe with only their shadows on the battlefield.
Or he is using them to identify other pirates.
>if Oda were to fall to Kishi's levels
Jesus Christ, no, please no
Kaidou also couldn't make it to Marineford because Shanks chased him away. For a guy with an army, he sure did run away fast.
I'm pretty sure that when Doflamingo gets his ass kicked, Crocodile is going to be the new Joker
Zombies are as strong as the shadows you put inside them, thats the whole point.
Kaidou probably just realised he couldn't fight and win/lose against WB in time to reach Marineford so turned back.
Shanks likely has more than a little Ruseman in him.
I like both, same with Nami
Beri are not dollars.
One beri is one yen
5-9 months at most.
Exactly, so a bounty of 30,000 is only actually like 300 bucks, I wouldn't call that "immense"
Fuck you, I want 2014 to be the year of Dressrosa
2013 was mostly PH so this isn't that outlandish.
My real worry now is what the fuck is next?
How can Oda top this?
>How can Oda top this?
What if from now on, the ride never ends? No more "arrive at island, shit is happening, send bad guy flying, party arc, go to next island, rince and repeat" formula and now every arc is directly linked to the previous one.
One piece is the king of really long arcs. It could go on for 2 years max, but I suspect Oda wants to get to Kaido as soon as possible.
I know that we've already discussed nakama to death, but who actually has a chance of being the next Strawhat (if there is one)?
Keep in mind what all nakama share:
>An actual position on the crew (Zoro is first mate, before you ask)
>An emotional backstory
>A dream that can only be attained by becoming a pirate
>Some degree of fighting ability
>Optional wanted poster that perfectly captures the character's personality (obviously could take a while, since most of the crew only got bounties in Enies Lobby)
>A personality that gels together well with other nakama
He'll run out of shichis and yonkou before then.
This is just after the halfway point, allegedly.
>Marines fleet admiral
If Luffy was a marine, he would aim for Commander-in-chief and nothing else
>A dream that can only be attained by becoming a pirate
Yeah, sure. Chopper's, Nami's, Sanji's, Zoro's and Brook's dream can't be accomplished without being a pirate. I can agree that it is facilitated by being one, but it's not an obligation
Fine. A dream that can be accomplished by joining the Strawhats.
Who is Sanji?
If it's just all of our two cents.
Then Jinbei, final member.
If he hasn't joined by the end of this arc then I'll be done with that dream though.
Kinemon and Usopp have the same beard. Kinemon confirmed for not joining.
Jinbei should be the commander of Luffy's first fleet when he'll become a Yonkou
I can't wait to see how strong Moria was in his prime, if he really was a Yonkou candidate then his pre-skip condition will become even sadder.
so he can't split to an atomic level, to make a nuclear fission and blowing up a whole fucking Island?
>Brook not disguised as a normal human
But I guess "Muh references" was more important in the artist's eyes
>2013 was mostly PH
PH ended in February.
That might be too far even for Oda.
All of you take a minute to appreciate Drake's style in light of this atom talk.
Turn into T-Rex, bite head off.
>marceline x nico robin crossover
Just a little tease here...
You know that stream that happens on weekends and gets posted in these threads?
15 episodes tonight. It's the ending of Marineford.
Well, not *everyting*. Even Oda said himself that he's added a bunch of stuff to the story because he has so many ideas, but has to make them work well. So some things he had planned since the beginning (Fishmen, Brook, Franky) and some on the spot (Supernovas).
Haki for the example he started to think about around Skypiea and Davy Back Fight at the earliest (when Luffy tried to do the same combo he used on Crocodile for Kuzan and showed that it wouldn't work on every Logia).
If we're going by that route, then Luffy would just be dressed as Shanks.
>implying I'm not already there
>implying this isn't the thread I resurrected
>implying you know who I am
Is he a bad enough dude as it is?
Does he need a mythical zoan as some suggest?
Buggy wouldn't be immune to the explosion. This is a one time move
> Not going into the 24/7 One Piece stream
Look up gaming_master01 on justin.tv.
I know there is a 24/7 stream for Ruby Gloom that lasted for 6 years and is still going. I doubt any similar miracle could happen to One Piece.
Well the Gorosei control the whole world, so I'm guessing a lot.
The highest bounty at the beginning of One Piece was 200 million beri combined for Dorry and Brogy.
>Mr. 3 is getting some of that every night
There are a lot of 24/7 streams. You just need to look.
This one has been up for a while. With the current episodes, it takes about a week for a full run.
He didn't have a zoan army back then, I think.
And Shanks fought off Kaido, not chase him away.
>Kaidou is Wario
>Whitebeard is Mario
>Shanks is Yoshi
>Big Mom is [hide]Peach[/hide]
>and now every arc is directly linked to the previous one.
But it's always been like that.
>implying Buggy don't loved getting atomized in the morning
I mean in term of what is happening and the shit they have to solve
What Enel did had nothing to do with Crocodile, fro exemple
>Shanks, a-are you Yoshi?
so close m8
Maybe. She already had a bad reputation from working with Arlong.
He's worked with ex-pirates.
Is a pirate. And dead.
we use here.
God damn it I turned away for a second.
>He's worked with ex-pirates
He was not known and he had no bounty anyway. Becoming an adventurer à la Norland would have been possible.
>not using 4chan x
True, but there are several arc links in One Piece.
>Twin Capes- Whiskey Peak-Little Garden-Drum-Alabasta
>Jaya-Skypiea-DBF-Water 7-Enies Lobby
>Thriller Bark-Shabondy-Amazon Lily-Impel Down-Marineford-Post-war-Straw hat return-Fishman Island- Punk Hazard-Dressrosa-Zou-Wano(?)
>She already had a bad reputation
She was a no name thief. No one knew who she was. She could have walked into a Marine base and nothing would happen.
>Jaya-Skypiea-DBF-Water 7-Enies Lobby
Skypiea and Water 7 are separate sagas, I don't see why you would link them. But yeah, I'm aware that some sagas link arcs together. What I meant is that the New World would be one big saga
Saying these you can understand why Jimbei is not joining, right? Jimbei is going to die before joining, Luffy gets mad at the person that killed him (prolly a second yonkou, the one that Kidd is aiming at), and he makes a new enemy. Jimbei is too strong to join the crew, he's somewhere at sanji's level, maybe higher or lower, but around there. We all know that the 3 strongest were, are and will be Luffy/Zoro/Sanji. I'd like Bartolomeo in crew, I don't see it happening though.
>he's somewhere at sanji's level
weakest i dont think som,dofla is terrified of kaidou i dont think a weak person can cause that kind of impact
>somewhere at Sanji's level
Jinbei is definitely Luffy tier
That boosts my argument but I still think that Zoro>Jimbei so...
Stop these X beats Y debates. Usopp can beat Zoro given enough preparation. You can only be sure that the heroes will win over the villain most of the time. Except against certain main villains. Then the hero wins round 2.
It's no news that Zoro is stronger than Luffy. Zoro is almost admiral-tier right now, because he was trained by Mihawk, who is younko-tier.
spoilers fucking when
even fake spoilers are enough
>stronger than Franky
lel no, Jimbei is as strong or even stronger than current Luffy, there's a reason he didn't join right away after FI, guy would take the suspense on fighting DD
>yfw Usopp is the strongest strawhat and could beat any character given the chance to study them and develop a strategy
He will be when he finally puts on that dress
Isn't Rayleigh above Yonko tier?
>This is what zorofags actually believe
I don't think Robin could do any harm to Chopper if he transforms...
AAAAAAAAAAAAnd Luffy was trained by Rayleigh, what's your point?
Yes and no, young rayleigh clearly was but old rayleigh is as useful as WB, Kizaru was having the upper hand against him and he barely tried
>Sanji >= Franky
I mean that Sanji could be still stronger than Franky or both are on the same level. I don't think that Franky is stronger than Sanji. Only with the Giant Robot he would be stronger.
she could grab his balls
Yea but for the sake of training who would have done a better job in the same amount of time? Mihawk or Rayleigh?
Raylegh is old and busted. Whitebeard was once pirate king-tier but in old state he had hard time fighting an admiral. It's clearly that Mihawk is strongest known character in current time, maybe Gorosei and Dragon are stronger but we don't know anything about them.
What are you guys talking about, Sanji is an agility character, he's fast and he has Haki. He could avoid Franky's beams or rockets or whatever in no time, Franky is way lower than Sanji, 4th in ranks, but still way lower than the big trio.
Why do you doubt it? Moria was 100% right when he told Luffy if he went to the new world as he was he and his whole crew would just die, Saboandy happened right after.
luffy would have done well if he didn't go to marine just like all the other supernovas
oda just ran out of ideas
Aokiji wants to change the world and he sees Blackbeard as the man who will do it successfully, so he joined.
I still can't wait for Kuma's flashback, whenever it happens.
>just like all the other supernovas
Law could never beat Doflamingo but Luffy will.
>kizaru was having the upper hand
I guess you only watched the anime. Rayleigh couldn't outright beat Kizaru but he was able to hold him in place no problem. As is proven by the fact Kizaru attempted to kill or capture Luffy, he would have also attempted to kill or capture Rayleigh if he was capable of it. He wasn't.
Shanks and Blackbeard are the strongest known characters based on feats of strength shown. No doubt Mihawk is strong though.
You're right, but Rayleigh was clearly exhausted while Kizaru was not even sweating
That's because Rayleigh had the harder objective. All Kizaru had to do was shoot random lasers at super weak opponents, Rayleigh had to block him from doing so. That would be exhausting, but says nothing about Kizaru vs Rayleigh alone.
Mihawk was on par with Shanks while the later had two arms, so obliviously Mihawk stronger now when Shanks has only one arm. Blackbeard - maybe yes, but in Marineford he was scared to fight Shanks. I'm sure he is stronger now but we don't know how much.
Super cola powered is down are they using another site?
Shanks is stronger now than when he had two arms. He is at the prime of his strength.
In One Piece two characters can be similarly strong at one point, and then vastly different strengths at a later point.
When Luffy met Franky they were evenly matched.
Oda has gone on record as having said that Shanks losing his arm didn't really make him weaker.
In fact he's probably a lot stronger now than he was when he had both arms.
>Blackbeard - maybe yes
So far no one but Kaido and the mountain bandits have willingly fought Shanks. Kaido lost. Shanks offered Mihawk a duel and he pussed out. Shanks showed up at Marineford and Mihawk immediately backed out.
Blackbeard killed Whitebeard, took his fucking fruit, and then fought Sengoku and Garp simultaneously and didn't lose. The fact that he was confident he could fight Garp and Sengoku but not confident he could fight Shanks just shows how strong Shanks is.
False, Ryuuma's body is still far stronger than Brooke despite having Brooke's shadow. You get the strength of the body(minus devil fruits) and the skills of the shadow(minus devil fruits)
I'm pretty sure he had to fight his whole crew and not just Shanks. You can tell that he has a crew, but he clearly knows that his crew is not even good for a Shanks' underling, so he would have to fight them all by himself. Not saying that Teach was as strong as Shanks, but if he has mastered Whitebeard's DF and obtained one more he could win him at this point, or at least give Shanks a fair match.
Ok, but what is Shanks feats? Clashing sword with old and dying Whitebears, who wasn't even prepared to fight? Cool. Stopping Akainu's punch with sword? Nice, it make him above admiral-tier but what else? Mihawk has more feats and known as strongest swordsman in the world, so no character who use sword can be stronger than him, Shanks and Raylegh included.
Blacbeard's biggest feat is fighting Sengoku and Garp, both of whom is low admiral-tier. Impressive, but I doubt marineford Teach was yonkou-tier.
Wouldn't the body keep their fruits?
There was that one invisible guy.
No character who uses a sword can be better at sword fighting.
They can still probably beat him in a fight.
I don't think he was actually dead though, betadoctor just made some modifications to his body
Absolm wasn't dead. He just had his body altered. Much like Kuma.
When Whitebeard was talking about fights between Shanks and Mihawk, he didn't say who was the winner. Because it obliviously was Mihawk. Saying that Mihawk won against Shank would de-hype Shanks and also Whitebeard didn't want to put Shanks into shame, so he just said "what a impressive fights you two had!' It's pretty oblivious, you just need to read a little deeper.
Mihawk got stopped by Vista, who is high VA tier, right after saying that he was sorry he had to go all out against Luffy. All the other admirals, besides Kizaru vs Marco, easily overpowered any WB commander they fought and Akainu beat the shit out of WB.
Whitebeard was in substantially better health when he clashed with Shanks than when he clashed with Akainu.
Shanks fully stopped flowing magma with haki, something Whitebeard couldn't do, and back when he and shanks met, Whitebeard complimented Shanks haki.
His other feat is defeating Kaido without taking a single injury and in just one day.
He wasn't a zombie really, just a modified human. Had he been a zombie his shadow would have been stolen by Moriah when he used Shadow's Asgard and he would have collapsed like Cindry and the other zombies.
I think we should give a little more credit to Shanks for using one arm and a sword to equally clash with Whitebeard using 2 hands and his bisento. He may have been old and dying but Whitebeard could still stop his entire ship with one hand if I'm not mistaken. I would also call it wrong to say that Sengoku and Garp are low admiral-tier. I'm sure both of them are stronger than the pre-timeskip admirals in terms of haki and physical strrength, they just didn't have ridiculous logia powers like they did.
Looked like his entire body was altered though, it's doubtful someone could live through that, it looked like he had more done than Franky had.

Senior Pink created level 5.5
Senior Pink indirectly saved Luffy's life
We don't know anything about Shanks yet. We have seen him with a sword, but we do not know if he is actually fighting with it, he even may have eaten a Devil Fruit.
>it's doubtful someone could live through that
This is One piece we are talking about. Franky was hit by a train and reconstructed his body with scrap. You dont think a doctor who was constructing zombies for Moriah couldn't alter someones body? Also im pretty sure Absolm talks about having his body altered by the doctor. Ill look for it.
We know he hasn't eaten a devil fruit because he told Luffy the ability to swim is vital as a pirate.
We've seen him use his sword for fighting, so he undoubtedly does use it.
Other than Blackbeard he's the strongest character alive.
Sengoku's attack was stopped by Mr.3. MR. FUCKING.TREE. Sengoku was pretty hyped and was a huge disappointment. He also has pretty shit fruit, which only makes him slower and more vulnerable.
Garp was strong, but "was" is the key word. He clearly sealed a good part of his power after Roger's death because he knew that there will never be a worth opponent to him ever again. Plus he was weakened even more by old age.
It's obvious his body was altered, but was it done while he was dead or while he was alive (never killed in the first place)?
Where's the stream then? You people post it every week now suddenly become shy?
This. He knows what he's talking about!
Sengoku used his ultimate attack against Blackbeard, he didn't do the same thing when he attacked Luffy. Blackbeard was trying to sink Marineford, Luffy was just trying to rescue somebody.
Two arms is vital for the ability to swim.
Marineford stream IRON MAN MODO.
15 episodes in a row. No inbetween shorts for breaks.
Get in and get bent.
That's not true in reality and it's definitely not true in the One Piece world where people can throw buildings.
His ultimate attack barely stopped BB, Akainu would have raped BB along his crew
Have you seen him fighting seriously? 'Cause I haven't. And how does telling Luffy about swimming means he did not gain one? He might has find a mizu-mizu no mi and be able to swim while have a DF or something. My opinion is that we know nothing about Shanks, not that he can't be a swordsman, but we don't know for sure.
Moria vs X Drake
Why'd you spoiler it
Will Oda ever introduce time based devil fruits?
>Akainu would have raped BB along with his crew.
Depends on if the quake fruit can block magma (it can).
He has never died.
No, Sengoku's attack was absorbed by Luffy in gear 3. Mr.3 just used his power to protect him and ace from Luffy's expanding body
All we have time-wise is Foxy. He fires slowing beams from his hands. And sometimes he can shape the beams into things like swords. They are reflectable.
Foxy a shit. Davy Back fight for worst arc.
I bet you don't like Buggy either.
Buggy's fine but Foxy's shit.
Say that to my fucking face m8 I'll noro noro beam your shit you little faggot
In reality though Davy Back fight was pretty filler, although it was really funny and for the first time showed us how seemingly weak characters can use cunning to match opponents on a much higher level
>That's not true in reality
The difference is it was in an arena with set rules where those "weak" characters constantly cheated.
Foxy will master his fruit into ZA FOXY
No, but I would still jump her bones.
Good taste. I just prefer the Water 7/Enies Lobby outfit more. The cowgirlish outfit from Alabasta was pretty good too.
Kaido didn't lose piss off with that bullshit
Nope. Shanks showed up to marineford and his face was swollen, kaidou hit him hard enough for it to be swollen.
Gekko Moria would sooner disembowel himself than ally with Monkey D. Luffy. He utterly loathes the man.
As for the rest: Chinjao the Auger has already pledged his support and that of the Happou Pirate Navy. Bartolomeo the Cannibal and his Bart Company are a given, so long as he doesn't do something stupid, like dying. That goes double for Trafalgar Law and his Heart Pirates. You failed to mention Marco the Phoenix and the remnants of the Whitebeard Fleet for some reason.
X Drake seems like a candidate, since he seems an honorable sort of pirate, but we don't really know too much about him other than his previous affiliation.
He hates Kaido more, if you can't see the foreshadowing that's your own fault.
fuck you it was very entertaining
Foreshadowing, huh? That his crew was wiped out and he was chased from the New World like a whipped dog? So what? Did you also expect Don Krieg to return and befriend Luffy to get back at Dracule Mihawk?
It's fairly likely that Gecko Moria isn't dead, but the likelihood of him joining some alliance and working closely with the Strawhats is ridiculous. The best you could hope for is the type of indirect "truce" that Luffy agreed to with Crocodile to escape Impel Down.
>That classy music Dofla's playing in the latest episode
It was all worth it
Skypiea contributed to the Water 7 conflict with Usopp losing the money they stole, and Davy Back Fight showed the start of the crew dynamics starting to crumble, which Water 7 covered even further.
Wrong, Aokiji showed the start of the crew dynamics starting to crumble.
The Davy Back Fight had nothing to do with it.
Why do people want to get spoiled instead of wating just a few hours for the full translated chapter? WHY THE HELL ARE YOU FUCKS DOING THIS????
Did you forget the part where X Drake, Hawkins, Apoo and Urouge fucked with Kizaru and then got their asses kicked?
>luffy would have done well if he didn't go to marine
They would've gotten annihilated sooner or later, we got a look into how strong One Piece characters can be during Marineford and Luffy didn't stand a chance.
That fucking Kraken would've destroyed them, definitely.
Davy Back Fight is the name of arc, dingus.
I miss the wanted posters that looked gritty and sinister. There haven't been any of the like since we left the East Blue.
Newer wanted posters are all too bright and colorful.
The newer wanted posters capture the personality of the Strawhats.
I just wish the marines would fuck up a wanted poster or two
I've lost control of my body.
>I don't think Robin could do any harm to Chopper if he transforms.
Robin has her CLUTCH attack.
Shouldn't the wanted posters reflect the way the WG views them, as opposed to how the readers view them or how they view themselves? Anyway it's not even really about the poses per se, but about the quality and style of the image.
Furthermore, if we're going to talk about capturing the personality of the person, Buggy looks way too bad ass in his wanted poster then. Back then all the wanted posters shared that similar style and looked like wanted posters. All the wanted posters these days look more like the fanmade wanted posters that are just screencaps stuffed into a square.
By the way, if Coby managed to capture Iron Club Alvida and clapped her in seastone manacles, would she balloon back out to her original lardass state?
I remember it being mentioned somewhere before Enes Lobby that it doesn't have to be his feet that he leaves on the ground but can be any part. Maybe Oda changed it around but being able to tag parts would make him even stronger.
daily fucking reminder
nah, but if Blackbeard grabbed her, then maybe
That's if she's skinny due to the fruit and not due to the fruit preventing her from eating.
didn't the fat slip off her? if so she would gain the weight back if she kept eating like a pig after her powers were neutralised
There's also a theory that while she was getting used to the fruit she couldn't eat because it kept slipping away from her, and it's possible she grew fat over time.
Imagine Blackbeard with the Slip Slip Fruit, all lithe and sexy.
Well, they are supposed to look like screencaps. They're pictures of them. The reason why the first few looked badass was because they were taken in the middle of a battle or something. Most of the Strawhats got their pictures taken during a party.
Damn that looks stupid.
So which dog would to adopt?
Obviously Franky dog
quads don't lie
Z's second had a time df
Not really, it was an age changing fruit.
>leave blackbeard dog at home for a few hours
>come back to a destroyed house
>blackbeard dog emerges from the shadows staring you down
>go to give it a light smack because animal cruelty
>hand's dragged towards it and you smack it to the other side of the house
How would you keep Luffy on a leash?
Why is Law listed? He's already in the alliance, hell he set up the alliance in the first place
