Opinion
I think Law needs Smoker and the Straw hats. Law did not have to switch bodies at all on Smoker and Tashigi. He could have killed Smoker on the spot. Law talked about getting something back. So something must have been taken from him by force. If that is true then Law will have to ally himself with Smoker and Luffy. This may also mean that the Shichibukai title and the alliance with Ceaser Crown was not voluntary. People have mentioned about stuff like this and Law's character not fitting with the Shichibukai title. There may be a bigger enemy to contend to in this arch. Switching the bodies on Smoker's team and Luffy's team guarantees (if the technique can only be undone by the user) that Smoker and Luffy will have to return to Law. Smoker is in worse shape then the Straw Hats, Law has his heart. I wonder if Law will resign at the end of this arch from the Shichibukai title once he gets what he wants?

Yeah, I feel that Law's reason for the body-swapping is a combination of SlayerX and grey_1960's answers. Remember, he told all the intruders that he wouldn't let them escape the island. If Law is really the only one who's capable of switching them back, then the body switch really is an effective "tether" right there.....


Also, recall that Law's chat with Smoker during their fight indicated that there was apparently some kind of government conspiracy going on. So I guess he's letting the marines stick around so they can expose whatever plot Caesar Crown is hatching up themselves (after Luffy's crew beat the crap out of him first, of course).....

i hope that tashigi has a diferent approach to using the smoke-DF. i cant help myself but to feel that smoker is missing the most obvious thing to do with it:
suffocating others. the way hes been using it (multiply limbs, increase reach, moving around, etc.) makes it look inferior to other logias. that is because they can do those things too, in addition to their own advantage from their logia (like magellan being poisonous for example).

^Technically, many Logia can already suffocate others (I don't think Light or Lightning can suffocate anyone, but you can definitely suffocate someone with Swamp, Ice, or Sand, and probably even Darkness). There's just no point in suffocating someone with Lava or other similar leveled powers. . Smoker simply has the blandest Logia ability.

Additionally, Magellan is not a Logia user.

yes, but it makes perfect sense to suffocate others with smoke it seems so predestined to inflict damage that way, since it is so bland on the outside.
pardon me, but i had great expectations for smoker, still do. id like to see him rise even further through the ranks.

magellan no logia? wow, thx for setting me straight

^Yeah, it's pretty clear that Magellan's not a logia if you pay attention to his appearance when he activates his power. He may coat his body with poison, but he doesn't transform into it. Plus, we clearly saw Luffy damage him with his bare hands when they first fought (and this was long before he learned how to control his haki, remember).

More like "light vs. darkness and a bunch of other stolen powers", actually. That being said, while I normally dislike discussing hypothetical match-ups, I'll make an exception this time and say that I kinda wanna see how well the current Teach would fare against all 3 pre-skip admirals. I mean, we're talking about a guy who was confident enough to take on both Garp and Sengoku at the same time during the war, so for all we know, the current Blackbeard could probably take on 4 or 5 admirals at once.....

my bad... i guess i confused him covered in poison with him actually becoming poison. i also went over the chapter of their first fight. to my defense, the panel of magellans facial expression after taking the hit was very small

BB was high on power and wanted to test his new DF while he was destroying marine ford .
It was not about him fighting Grap and Sengoku it was about them trying to stop him from sinking the place.
Which is what he was trying to do .

A short while after that he ran from Akainu who show up by him self.
BB should be super strong maybe even the strongest person in OP world but nobody is going to be able to take on 4 to 5 admirals levels guys at once ever .
Plus just think about how BB has to use his powers to see how that makes no sense .

I think it was Garp and Sengoku versus BB and his entire crew.

Maybe... an Iron Maiden cover?

But yeah, Blackbeard was probably overexcited about his new ability at Marineford - the fact that he ran away from Akainu without a fight kind of proves that he was not ready to take on several admirals at once, although with more DFs it may be possible...

A little late to the party. Great chapter, lots going on.

One thought: did the samurai meet ace while ace was visiting wano country?

Yeah, upon reflecting upon that, I do think it was rather premature of me to think Blackbeard could take on that many admirals at once (plus, it makes me sound like some kind of biased fanboy! ) That being said, I'm still kinda interested in how the current Teach would fare against all 3 pre-skip admirals, though.



Anyhoo, new thread is here, guys! Come and get it!
