One Piece - Character Discussion - Franky

The purpose of this thread is to provide a place to discuss all things Franky related.

To keep the discussion enjoyable for all Franky fans, please follow the guidelines below and stay on-topic!
Note: Please don't use this for the specifics (i.e. episode, chapter, game, etc. discussion) there are other threads for that stuff.
Thread Guidelines
  • No campaigning!
    No "hate" or "xyz must die" posts. Discuss why you do or don't like characters without whining and whining or blatantly campaigning for your favourite.

  • Be polite to your fellow forum members.
    Do not insult or harass other members for their likes and dislikes. Do not take it so seriously that you end up in an argument with another forum member because they express a fondness for a character you loathe. Discussion and good spirited banter are always welcome, but harassing people will not be tolerated.

  • Discuss, don't chat.
    Please remember that AnimeSuki is a discussion forum, not a chat room, there is a difference. If you wish to chat, then please make use of our IRC channel.

  • Have fun, but post intelligently.
    It's great to have fun, but please try your best to add substance to what you post and make your thoughts interesting for the generation of fans that will follow after you’re long gone and on to watching some other series.

  • Use Spoiler tags!
    Spoilers are allowed, but they must be enclosed in spoiler tags clearly marked with a proper title. Failure to do this can result in a BAN.

    • Adding a Spoiler tag:
      Just highlight your spoiler and click the button found on the "Quick Reply" and "Reply to Thread" forms. Make sure that you include a title for the spoiler!

    • Please use the Report button if you see any spoilers:
      Click the button found to the left of the post, just under the poster's avatar. Using the Report button is anonymous and helps the Moderators to locate and deal with problems quickly.

    • Posting prohibited spoilers may result in a ban.
      Note: Reporting a post does not mean the poster will be banned instantly. The Moderators will use bans if warnings are repeatedly ignored.

And sending franky to do it... Well, he's the best engineer the strawhats have, so who better to do this? He may even "borrow" some of this technology as an upgrade.

Yes!!! I claim this thread for Medico Mechanica!!!! WHOOOOOO!!!!
Spoiler for FRANKY!:


Now, first of all, the Strawhat Pirates all seem to be gaining up a lot of strength and are getting a lot better at what they do. I want to know how Franky is going to get better... with Modifications or something? Meh... I just hope he doesn't have weird mechanical crap sticking out of his body.

Now I have a question involving Franky; We all know cola is his feul source and when Franky has something else as feul like Tea or Vegetable Juice he maintains different hairstyles. So my question is: What would happen if Franky were given other drinks for his feul? For example:

Milk
Water
Beer or any other alcoholic drink
Root Beer Soda or any other soda
Orange Juice or any other fruit juice
Vegetable Oil or any other oil including motor oil
Coffee
Any drink that's boiling hot
Any drink that's freezing cold

The way I see it, Franky's fuel is cola because the sugar and chemicals in it make him hyper (or "super") and the carbonation generates his attacks, like the Coup de Vent. His mood and personality may very well depend on what is in the drink he uses as fuel, but his hair is a mystery all on its own.

Hehee...
Good reasoning, but if you actually read Franky's wiki entry it states that some of his favorite foods are fast foods (burgers, fries, and of course cola).

I bring this up simply to point out Franky's most obvious contrast, Popeye the Sailor.

Who needs spinach when you have junk-food?

Remember what he said to chopper in that scene: Don't even think about trying other things just to see what would happen!

I actually want to hear the Popeye Theme song trumpets play as he drinks cola.

Yeah he kept trying. the drink that powers him up affects his personality.
maybe during the later arcs where the enemies are way stronger, he would discover a drink that powers him up more than cola. At least it shows he has a room for improvement.
