It's becoming quite clear that Croc is playing an escalated role in this war.
He's saved Ace from execution, faced Mihawk, and all in all caused havoc in this war. I suspect that Croc. will re-emerge as a full fledged pirtae one again... but with what crew?? and with what motives????

Any one else have Ideas?????

he will be a pirate again that much is clear and mr 1 will be his VC. as far as a crew goes i dont know. maybe he joins the WB pirates who knows. all the main character in the jailbreak have crews, luffy is the with the strawhats, invonkov and inazuma are with the RA, buggy will lead the level 2 prisonerswith mr 3 as his vc, and jinbei will more than likely lead the sun pirates again.

I definitely believe Croco-boy will once again become a powerful pirate. I think his washed his hands from the government now and I highly doubt it that he will consider or even accept any dealings/partnerhip with them in the future.

I have a hunch that he has some kind of past history/relationship with the WB pirates. Whether this is revealed to be true or not, I still feel that there's a chance that he could unite with the WB crew. I personally wouldn't mind seeing Croco-boy joining the RV's. I think it would be cool if he became a captain/commander of a particular group/unit of the RV army, but sadly considering his character and personality I can't see him taking orders from Dragon lol. :amuse

I think Croco-boy has done enough in this war to aid him in the future. His name and reputation has "improved" in this war lol. I think he has a greater chance of accepting those ID prisoners as part of his new crew compared to Buggy imo. Especially, after reading chapter 578 and how it ended. ;)

I never thought about that.. but it does seem plausible at the very least..

But when I see him there with the WB crew, golden hook and getting all preachy..

Seems like he got his pirate way back... More than anything I see his distaste for the WG...

Either way I'm glad to see him standing up to Akainu..

Yeah I'm sure he won't settle for second best twice.
I hope he can make a stand here and somehow gain a crew bigger than just Das Bones.. now will it be a crew of Impel Down escapees, or NW pirates.. Hmm.

As far as we know, we just don't know certainly what revolutionaries are. They could be pirates as well. Ivankov at least shows so. So both statements don't contradict each other.

Even Revolutionaries have to sail through the ocean to get from one to another isle. While Iva is part of the RA, he's the king of New-/O-kamaland also, so he is unlikely a pirate. But the deffinition of a pirate isn't clear in One Piece anyway. Somebody opposing the law of the WG or just somebody helping people not being a marine himself like it's with the Mugiwaras.

Crocs future is pretty nebulous right now facing Akainu and no way leave MarineFord. My opinion is, that if he escapes somehow, he will somehow try to get some strong peope into his crew like BB did, just not such weirdos. That's what he declared in Impel Down at least.

Even the Revolutionaries must have past. Most of the time, they start being in some postion, till they see, that it can't go on like this anymore. Him being an real "pirate" in the past should be clear with the Okama not being part of the WG. Inazuma himself did say, that it's not time for Dragon to show up, meaning that the revolution stands above all pirate - marine differences. Their goal is to take over countries, unlike pirates who actually are sailing for long times. Other than that. How can you even think of them being pirates!? They are clearly working towards a free world not corrupted like the WG and Marines. And as such are a third faction in the One Piece world. Also they don't sail to raid villages, nor do they try to have fun being on adventure, they are just normal citizens trying to gain freedom.

stop getting off topic cough. XD

I feel he will be asked back to join the Schibukai ranks. He deserves that.

Gcat88
March 20, 2010, 08:56 PM
He doesnt deserve that at all!! He has been fighting against the Marines this entire time. I think that he will go back to the sea and try his life as a pirate. What his crew will be i dont know, and he could join the RA. There are a lot of prisoners but do we really know that they all want to go out and be pirates or even join the ranks of a crew. We will only know the future when the time comes. Till then;its only spectulation. I have actually taken a liking to Croc.

March 20, 2010, 09:31 PM

Let me tell you what the relationship between Marines and Schibukai is..

1. Marines hae a "deal" with schibukai to give some percentage of their treasure to WG.

2. As long as Schibukai don't obstruct justice, they are free to do anything.

Some raw facts.

1. Kuma has openly neglected orders on more than one occasion.
2. Kuma's words to Kizaru were overflowing with "mind your own business" attitude.
3. Sengoku jailed Jimbei on the top most secured prison on the deadliest floor, level 6. And for what? Just for opposing the idea of the war b/w Marines and WB.. Marines are noble? Go figure :d
4. Boa Hancock has probably never attended a schibukai meeting or summon.
5. When the schibukai and Marines convened after Croc's loss to luffy, sengoku was not expecting Mihawk, Moria, Hancock at all..

See, the relation between them is no goddy-goddy. Its purely business.. And they want military strength to balance the Marines-Yonkou-Schibukai trio.

The Shichibukai don't give a clue about the government, they oppose to their orders, commit crimes and I doubt they pay any tax for the government.

But the important is the public don't know that. Crocodile loose his position because once he was defeated it was revealed for the public knew what he did in Arabasta.

Because of that Crocodile cannot return. He already betrayed the government while he was a Shichibukai, he cannot be trusted, at least in the eyes of the public.


Still I don't think that Marineford war would influence negatively anyone who want to be a Shichibukai. All Shichibukai are "former" criminals, all them have bounties for atrocious things. Since their job is to scare the pirates of the world, the WG would be happy if Whitebeard, Rayleigh or Luffy wanted to join the Shichibukai.

Uriel
March 21, 2010, 02:44 AM
I don't think Luffy could scare the public, honestly XD

Schabrak
March 21, 2010, 04:09 AM
He means to scare them with their bounties, not their appearances, as Crocodile was quite the normal looking, excluding his mafia pimp outfit. Everybody who understood, who Luffy was, did seem pretty shocked in the past.

Considering how many pirates Moria did take out, he is probably one of the best in his job as a Shichibukai.

Poneglyph420
March 21, 2010, 04:31 PM
I doubt that Croc. would willingly accept a Shichibukai title even if the WG was desperate enough to offer. He seems to have thrown his lot in with the pirates at this point.. Or more like he just has more to hate about the WG's force than the remnant of WB's force.... At least enough to order Das Bones that the marines are the enemies.

But if he's to make it past the war and still play a role he'll need a crew, or as some have mentioned join the RA... Heh. especially with the mystery of the secret Iva has...

Heh Croc. joining a bunch of Newkama... HEH.

BetaRuler
March 22, 2010, 04:51 AM
Croc might even recruit the old BW services again XD? haha
Unlikely I know.

My bet is he might rejoin with the revolutionaries after this, in a sense he is possibly a revolutionaries equivelant of a shichibukai... if you get what I mean.

ScratchmenApoo
March 22, 2010, 03:35 PM
I think Crocodile's past will be revealed in the following chapters (the panel with him standing along with Whitebeard Division Commanders just gives me some eerie feeling) and he sure won't be happy about it. He & Das Bones will survive the war and probably continue to terrorize Grand Line.

March 31, 2010, 12:02 PM
At the beginning of the war I was thinking than He will became newly a Shichibukai.
But now (also for a bit I still think that) I no more think so.

After the last words of WB I hoped than He could decide to search through the OP, but now I don't think more so.

Anyways I think than now He and Mister 1 (if he is still alive) will escape with the WB pirates, and He will stay with them.

He could stay forever (in the truth I don't believe this) with them, and He with Marco, Vista and perhaps Jozu will be the leader (the WB pirates will stay together).
But perhaps after a bit He will reunite the BW agent (in the truth only Miss Double Finger, Mister 4 (and her nakama) and also the assistant of Mister 3 (but perhaps She will be with Mister in Buggy's crew)).

i have some problems with your post karthik (its in bold)
your original post was
"I feel he will be asked back to join the Schibukai ranks. He deserves that."

then in your 2nd one...


Let me tell you what the relationship between Marines and Schibukai is..

1. Marines hae a "deal" with schibukai to give some percentage of their treasure to WG.

2. As long as Schibukai don't obstruct justice, they are free to do anything.
No, not anything. If they could do anything, then Croc wouldnt have lost his position after trying to start a rebellion -_-
Some raw facts.

1. Kuma has openly neglected orders on more than one occasion. But he has never directly attacked an important WG official
2. Kuma's words to Kizaru were overflowing with "mind your own business" attitude. okay...and? :blink Hancock and most of the others are like that too.
3. Sengoku jailed Jimbei on the top most secured prison on the deadliest floor, level 6. And for what? Just for opposing the idea of the war b/w Marines and WB.. Marines are noble? Go figure :d
He was going to fight against them :rolleyes:
4. Boa Hancock has probably never attended a schibukai meeting or summon.
as with # 2, it has no relevance
5. When the schibukai and Marines convened after Croc's loss to luffy, sengoku was not expecting Mihawk, Moria, Hancock at all..
same as 2 and 4

See, the relation between them is no goddy-goddy. Its purely business.. And they want military strength to balance the Marines-Yonkou-Schibukai trio.

most of this has no relevance to Croc deserving to become a Shichibukai. If your basing it on power, then other pirates would be more deserving from the war.
__
for me personally, i agree with chess4 in Croc becoming a semi-good guy. I believe that he will be one of Luffy's allies at the end of the series who will help him. I think croc will probably try to either
a. defeat Luffy at full power through the
b. formation of a pirate crew and aim for raftel
but i think hes a pretty awesome character for saving both Luffy and Ace as well as nearly killing Luffy 3 times. Sort of balances out though he probably respects Luffy now ^^

St Michael

He'll become the PK , obviously.


Back to reality , I think he'll join the WB pirates , as one of the top members , along with Vista , Marco and One-armed Jozu.

OR , begin a new crew. I'm wondering if M.1 is strong enough to be first mate. Looking at how Mihawk OS him , it's unlikely.

Strawhats will meet him again in the NW either way.

Bugzee
April 02, 2010, 01:02 PM
I'm curious to know whether Croco will go ahead to the NW or stay in the first half of the GL for the time being. It'll be cool if he gathers some more nakama/crew members from both the GL & the NW :amuse. Atm, if I was him I would go ahead into the NW tbh. Maybe, he'll recruit some of the ID prisoners? I don't think all of them are going to follow Buggy!? lol

And now it's your time, Buggy*Fly, to not believe anymore in the Great Buggy :o

Even before the beginning of ID, it has been foreshadowed that Buggy will have a new crew : he left them for a while and Alvida became a second captain, his old nakamas decided to quit the Clown's crew when he got captured and sent to ID.
During ID arc, prisoners often supported him and talked about him like a hero. Then, the war arc showed these prisoners saying they would follow him no matter what happened after all he did (a PK nakama, a brother of Shanks of the Yonkou, Buggy recognized by WB as his rival, Buggy wanting to beat Kizaru, Buggy speech to the world on the den-den mushi, Buggy saving Luffy from Mihawks, Buggy surviving the world strongest swordman's attacks, Buggy surviving the Muggy Ball, Buggy saving Luffy and Jimbei from Akainu, Buggy surviving Kizaru's laser, Buggy fighting against Shanks).
The last chapter just showed that the ID prisoners DEFINITELY decided to follow him now that the war ended.

How can you begin to doubt at this time ? :eyeroll

Bugzee
April 02, 2010, 02:49 PM
I've always believed in Buggy! :shakefist

There were 7 prisoners pictured in that panel (http://mangastream.com/read/one_piece/580-92/8) confessing to Buggy that they'll follow him forever (even to the ends of the world xD). I'm not expecting all of the jail breakers to follow The Great One. :noworry It also depends on how many of those ID prisoners are alive (200+ escaped from Impel Down). Yes, I see Buggy with a new crew but more condensed than the previous one. They'll be featured more from now on too. ;) I guess Crocoboy could recruit some of those prisoners temporarily. xD

Lord Rayleigh
April 02, 2010, 03:20 PM
Oh by the way, I've just realized that Luffy has stolen a marine coat (http://mangastream.com/read/one_piece/578-74/13). I was awared of the marine hat, but not that. He looks like some kind of great pirate, a " Yonkou maybe ?! " - some of the words he said before he agreed to go to MHQ.

St Michael
April 02, 2010, 03:21 PM
I doubt he will. He consider them as useless trash.

I remember that he even spoke of killing them at some point , maybe.

Anyway , it's unlikely that the future of Croc is linked with Buggy's.

Lord Rayleigh
April 02, 2010, 03:26 PM
I just think that these 7 men are probably the ones that are going to be his famous crewmates, as Oda has shown several times their face : for example here (http://mangastream.com/read/one_piece/578-74/16).
Anyway, he will probably have more than 7 men under him because more were showed to be still alive on the backgrounds in the last chapters.

This is a good question indeed.. I was wondering if Croc. will find old allies or contacts in the GL or not? I mean the BW guys were taken out by the SH so they'd stand little chance. There might be some fodders from ID that would join him, or maybe some of the newkama??

He's gonna take enough crew to make it out, but if he's gonna play a role from here on out he's gonna need NW level pirates on his side...

So I'm guessing he's gonna need to steal a ship and get to SA, and from there bolster his crew and plot his return to the world of piracy...

If Croc goes to the NW as a captain, if that is the case, then I agree he needs a fine crew. But I predict he joins the SH pirates instead and takes mr.1 with him. Zoro will take horhoro and Luffy will take Boa and Jinbei as members. Then we end up with a strong mofo-ing crew out there.

Schabrak
April 05, 2010, 09:16 AM
urlaub, it wouldn't make any sense if he joined Luffy. Firstly what did indicate that he would do so, if he said beforehand that it's all temporary and wants his own crew, secondly two more swordsman after Brook? No way! And the most important factor, both have their feud against each other, so why would he even try to request his addition to the crew? They already got Robin from that BC, lucky for her that she was pretty neutral most of the time, helping Luffy from death. What do you think Vivi would make of it?

Oops, I agree Vivi would step out of the crew and so would Carue. But at least I could dream about it, I guess. Plus Croc stayed behind, so....

Crocodile joining Luffy's crew ?! :o

Doflamingo thought Crocodile's jail time might have changed him a bit, and Crocodile said it did not. And we know that Crocodile has always been a lonely man. That's why he won't join the SH crew.
Remember that when he was the leader of Baroque Works, he only saw Nico Robin who used to be the sole member to know his identity.
And when he lived in Rainbase, he did not often appear on the streets : he was a mysterious guy that only showed when pirates were making trouble in town. That's why when Crocodile was looking for Mr Prince (Sanji) and appeared in the Casino, a worker was very surprised to see him.

Plus, Crocodile did not even accept to have a deal with Doflamingo, saying they were not equals. He also look down to Blackbeard back in ID. And yet you expect Crocodile to be a subordinate of Luffy, a 17-year-old boy ?

Come on, it makes no SENSE !

He definitely can't. The world is well aware of what he has done in Alabasta and the fact he fought against the marines at MHQ (video den-den mushi). He has even cut in two pieces Admiral Akainu. He is also the sole person to have saved Dragon'son twice. Not to say he saved Ace's life one time.

I'm not sure if ALL of WB's "sons" would be so excited about that, then again who knows... But that brings up the question of perhaps some of WB's sons splinter and join Croc. However unlikely, it's as plausible as Croc being accepted by a cohesive WB remnant.

He could simply create the start of a formidable crew and take a bunch of fodders. Maybe he knows a place in the NW where he can bolster his crew..

And most likely we won't see dear Croc. for a while...

In many ways a new pirate age just started. The seat taken by whitebeard is gone, the world government, the WB pirates and WB's allies have lost power and shanks and kaido had a confrontation, clearly rule for the seas is up for grabs for whoever has the caliber to do so. If crocodile has any of his old ambition he might become a pirate and try reaching for the top once again.

I think urlaub meant Perona (http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Perona). (She ate the Horo Horo no Mi and her laugh goes something like Horohorohoro :XD) I don't blame urlaub for referring to her as horhoro lol.

I just can't see Croco-boy joining the SH's. It wouldn't look right imo. Who the hell would want Mr. 1 in their crew? :err

April 15, 2010, 09:25 AM
Wow what an interesting case.
There are so many ways which the Croco-boy could go but I somehow think of all of them as being unlikely.
I'll go in the direction of what was hinted in the manga itself and say that he might first take care of "his past" as we don't know yet what Iva meant by saying that but that it was good enough to keep Croc in check. But I am pretty sure that Crocodile will have a bigger role from now on.

Ya know.. I've been thinking.. Now with the passing of WB and the opening of his territory..... Maybe this is Croc.'s chance..

Clearly after the mess in Arabasta Croc. was unable to find what he was looking for. And obviously subordinates didn't help in that instance either... Maybe what Croc is after is still Pluton...? Or some other similar such power. Croc. could also likely find an island in the NW, once under WB's protection and take it... and set up shop...

Either way I'm thinking he's headed to the NW, and it 'aint nothing nice..

April 16, 2010, 02:34 PM
right now croc is not a good or bad guy, he is kinda in the middle. he saved luffy a couple of times. croc is going to the new world for sure. yes he is strong but he only has one crew member so far and thats mr 1. i dont think he can build up a great crew in a short period of time that would be of relevance.

the WB's are missing their captain, 2nd, and 4th division commander, not to mention countless regular crewmembers. hopefully croc joins them and fills one of the commander positions.
http://www.onemanga.com/One_Piece/578/16-17/

crocodile looks good standing with the WB pirates.

i think oda was giving us a hint. i like croc. i think he will be a semi good guy in the future. kinda like my main man vegeta(DBZ reference for those who dont know)

April 17, 2010, 05:40 PM
Crocodile might try to become a great pirate once again. WB's age is over and the sheer amount of chaos around could easily prove to be advantageous. He has smarts, power and a logia fruit. The very remaining yonkou are threatened IMHO as things stand so perhaps his best move is to once again start dreaming.

Roarchu
May 12, 2010, 11:49 AM
I think it might be too much for Croc to gather a crew again, especially after BB gathering his....maybe

So it could be that next time we are seeing some revolutionaries fighting and all of a sudden "what?!! those powers look like...Crocodile!!" I think he's gonna be a revolutionary. well, kinda, he won't work under Dragon just temporarily ally with him to take down WG

bittman
May 13, 2010, 01:05 AM
Crocodile is probably going to become one of those secondary characters who's entire purpose is to basically show off the awesomeness of an arc's villain. That is: The Worf effect.

I can see Crocodile becoming a bit of a Worf in the future.

But yeah, agreed with comments that Crocodile might take another shot at pirate star-dom. He should be pretty happy with his efforts on the battlefield, he's still alive after going against some high level characters, so it's not like it's an impossible dream for him to surpass his silver-medalist standing.

Well...plot wise it's probably impossible, but if this was real and we didn't know Luffy was the main character, then people could be all like "Croc has a shot at being a somebody!"

Or it could be he's looking at high bounties, and will become a bounty hunter to make quick cash.

The cover page , although great , is not really important in the future of Croc. As the Hippos make me think that is it not canon :p

I still see him as the next division commander of Whitebeard Pirates or as the captain of another new crew.

Now that the last Gold Medalist is down , his dream to become the PK probably came back.

whatever croc does, he is no longer a villain(well totally anyway) i think in the end he will fight along side luffy in the next major war. croc and mr 1 saved him more than once.

i would love for croc and mr 1 to become part of WB's crew because i cant see them getting a crew of any relevance together in the new world. crocodile would slide nicely into one of the division commander slots.
