I do not regret shipping that.

You know, that is so something I would expect to happen at one point or another. Robin gets tickled into submission. That would be.... an interesting sight...

He's been shirtless for a few chapters already.

Robin feels the pain experienced by every limb she makes, so just chop the giant limb off, or burn it or something painful. Why bother tickling her. Even if her actual limbs are not hurt, giving her a crippling pain will give enemies good opportunity to strike the main body.

I am so hoping you are a girl. Nothing against you or the fairer side of human species. But if you're a man, why hurt a hottie when you can tickle her silly?

Kid seems to sport a similar scar to Zoro. And, Bonny. Can we expect her to somehow escape the WG again after being captured by Akainu?

Kid lost an arm, apparently, and Bonney looks like a revolutionary.

Not necessarily, we've seen Kid using his DF power to coat his arm in metal, so that might be all that is. Although it would be interesting if he did lose his arm....

Actually, about that supernova pic: Apparently, there's a chance that it's not legit, and may instead be fanart. But if that isn't real.... then all I gotta say is that whoever drew that is damn good at copying Oda's style.



Nonetheless, whether it's real or not, I've gotta say that I'm totally diggin' the post-skip Capone, Apoo, and Drake designs. Everyone else largely looks the same (though I actually kinda like Killer's goatee).....

Consequently, I don't know if she will fight if only because she should be able to beat anyone she fights easily.
Isn't this dependant on whether or not she can simply lock joints which she can do to I'd say a very big percentage of people(like 99%) but Hyouzou being what he is has I believe a very great advantage against Robin.
If Oda is using any kinda RL biology here, I suspect Hyouzou would be able to withstand any attack since he lacks a skeleton.
For Robin she would have to first stop his swords which in her case means stopping his arms which I think she's have a hard time doing, unlike Zoro who only needs to put a stop to his swords with his own swords.
Well I'd say it would be a pretty interesting fight between Hyouzou and Robin to say the least.

Next Chapter: Robin makes a giant fist punching Zoro out of her way and starts fighting Hyouzou saying "He came at me first".
Zoro cries in a corner.

^Then Hyouzou tickles her giant feet with his tentacles, stabs her while she's in her giggling fit, and takes a big swig of booze as his poison handles the rest. "Wheeeee!"

Robin looks vaguely amused as she is tickled, before sprouting 32 arms (3 to hold down each limb, and one to hold each of Hyouzou's swords) and effortlessly destroys Hyouzou. And that's only if shee doesn't go for the overkill option, summoning 64 arms, or 128, or a million. Whatever the case Hyouzou is down before he can even hiccup a reply or slur an insult. .

She would be unable to really confine Hyouzou's movements (though I guess it is possible that she could attach several hands to each tentacle, then simply have the hands link up, effectively limiting his movements), but she can simply grab hold of Hyouzou's weapons. There is no real surface she can't attach a limb to (besides the ocean?), so she can easily place several hands on each of Hyouzou's "hands", and then forcibly control the movement of the swords. And, for overkill, she can attach hundreds of limbs all over his body and simply confine him under a sea of hands.

Or, the easiest solution, she can simply take away his sake/pills. .

Honestly, Oda has never went all out with Robin's powers. Why can't she simply poke out an opponents eyes by placing fingers around their eyelids? Why can't she slowly choke someone by blocking off all air by "growing" fingers and hands around/in their mouth and nose? Etc. If Oda really wanted to, he could make Robin equal to the Big Three (I agree its not quite her character to be a fighter, but the potential is obviously there).

wasn't Hyouzou's established to be poisonious so robin spreading arms on him would be a terrible idea.

ingeneral though i agree with James that Robin's ability should allow her to gib most non-logia characters and is pretty much ideal anti mook. Though it was been established that her ability/arms strength can be overcome with sufficient brute force in the zombie arc.

She WAS an assassin before joining the crew so imagine what she might have done during that time. She could have just mellowed out after joining the crew when it comes to killing (in other words, Oda didn't want her to look like a cold killer)

Damn you're right. I completely forgot Hyouzou was poisonious to the touch.

lol



Also, about Hyouzou lacking a skeleton: Wouldn't the same be true of Ikaros, as well? I mean, as a fellow invertebrate, he shouldn't have to worry about getting snapped in half, either. Also, being a squid, he should be able to blind her with ink to further lower her defenses (actually, that should be true of Hyouzou, as well.....). So however nerfed Robin's ability may or may not be shouldn't really matter since at least the cephalopod-type fish-people still have certain advantages against her......

I think only Hyouzou tentacles lack a skeleton...the rest of him seems pretty vertebrate...
