Contradictions and oxymorons in OP

Ok, here's something that strikes me as funny about the world of OP.

1. If a devil's fruit user gets weak in contact with water, wouldn't this also affect them when they're taking a bath? And if so, then that would present a real problem for devil's fruit users because they would have to avoid bathing. (*eww*)

2. Forces of science. IE you hit something with a given amount of force, it's gonna shatter. So why can the going merry and other ships fly through the air (ref movie 3 and 4 and ep 40 something when they enter the grand line) and impact the water with a force equal to several hundred tons of raw force, yet suffer zero damage while others just nick something and disintegrate?

3. How in the world can you have animals that big??? (note the dead wind zones on the seas) Animals that big aren't possible.

4. An explosion happens in someone's face big enough to blow a hole through six inches of concrete and all they get is scuff marks.

That's three right off the top of my head. Some of this could possibly be answered by saying that "it's Oda Physics, don't ask why it is the way it is. It just is." Anyone else notice any other contradictions or oxymorons in OP? Do you possibly have some ideas or answers to them? Post your thoughts.

1. They become weak in contact? I don't think so. Maybe when submerged but that's it. It's not the seastone or anything... but the seastone is like having effects of the ocean... Well anyways they become weak when submerged in water.

2. 1st of all those movies were filler so they wont' really have any effects on what's real or not(yes fillers defy the laws of pyschics or whatever... though like One piece doesn't... )
Spoiler:


3. The dinosaurs were big.

4. Who is the one getting scuff marks? If you mean Luffy well he is rubber... and they always get hurt as far as i can remember.

You can take a bath without using seawater can't you?

I'd imagine you'd want fresh water to bathe with, which could be collected from rain and what not.

Well, that's what I meant. They'd submerge themselves in water and go weak. But as Nubixkube mentioned, if it's only sea water that does that, then I guess a fresh water bath wouldn't affect them. Although the water in the lake under the rain dances casino was supposidly fresh water, so I'm not so sure about that.

They classify those things as dinosaurs?? Even the fish?

Look at the Arabasta arc. Ussop and Chopper have things exploding in their face and yet they walk away with just scuffs. No missing body parts. Look at skypie. Same thing. I can understand Luffy having this happen, but look at how Zoro has gotten his a** handed to him multiple times and stuff that should have ripped half his face off just left a scuff mark and maybe some charing. That's it.

1. There is such thing as shower... no real need for bath. Or else every Devil Fruit user would have to run for their life when rain/snow coming down.

2-4.... It's an anime/manga (FICTION)... can't believe you even admit that your question could be answer with... it's oda work so STFU.lol..therefore, no real need to even ask question 2-4. Q1 was a good one.

Seriously, I think you have watched enough anime and read enough manga to realize non-meaningful wound will be completely healed in most anime/manga.

1. It's just seawater. And for the casino, they were in that one "seastone" cage so ya....

2. I don know how to do the spoiler thing so you can look at the other guy's answer.

3. No offense, but this is a dumb question. It's like asking... I don know, but seriously....

4. Luffy is rubber is the best I can come up with. But, I don't like this question also. It's "fiction", so whatever the author comes up with goes, I guess....

I was more pointing out the contradictions and oxymorons of the show compared with reality. I realize that in the show anything is possible as it's an animation. What I think is funny though is how far outside of reality they warp certain things. ^_^ That's kind of what I was trying to point out and to get your comments on some of the reality warping things you saw too.

Well, If your going to compare shit with reality, Lets go all the way


Boogers don't explode
Air can't be blown into a gun and fired
Men can't sweat wax
Men can't stretch
Men can't break into 100 pieces and go back together
Men can't turn into smoke
Men can't turn into sand
Men can't set their body on fire without protection and suffer no damage
Men can't cut a ship in half with a sword
Men can't turn into birds
Men can't swing 50 ton baseball bats
Men can't have guns in their hair
Men can't live inside a treasure box
Men can't be part fish
Women can't turn into moles
Women can't grow hands and arms everywhere
Woman can't hift their weight from 1kg to 10,000kg
Women can't control people with paint
Animals can't talk
Ducks don't get that big
Ducks are not ridable.




Surely not a complete list, hwoever, Its a good start. Afterall, none of this shit can happen in real life.

lol
1 has been answered moving on

2, You don't know how strong the material is (UBER WOOD!!!) And you don't know how strong the impacts of the shocks are unless you can measure it and you can't... Honestly... Don't ever use the word science... EVER!!!

3, ... Yeah... Don't get into take bio as your major...

4, For the love of god... Is this the only TV show you have ever seen? People can be shot at by an entire army and not get hit by a single bullet.

Its anime. If I was in an anime I can crack the earth in two just by punching it....
But then again it'll take a period if six episodes to happen, the powerup the endless talking and not the mention the flash backs. Then the series will abruptly end just as I hit the earth and it starts cracking in two!

Bow down before this man


He has the highest and most complete understanding of the complex nature of anime I have ever seen!


Worship unto his greatness!
