[font=tahoma][color=green]You should also consider the fact that once they defeat CP9, it's gonna make the bounty rise to a new level. If you have noticed, Luffy (I assumed) would never have taken out ANY of the CP9 during the Water Island arc. Bounties raise if you defeat someone with a higher bounty such as the Crocodile case. It could also increase if you happen to beat the "Top" guys in the World Government. Now if Luffy defeats the strongest person in CP9, his bounty is more likely to par up with the best of the Shichibukai!
To be realistic: every Straw Hat will have their bounty raised, (or get one). They've gone beyond the pirate-criminal level now.
Luffy: I'm going to have to agree with (most?) everyone else and say 200+. It should be in the Shichibukai range now since he has now proved to be an enormous threat to the government.
Zoro and Sanji: This probably won't happen but I want Zoro and Sanji to be in the same bounty-range, just 'cause it's give them something else to fight about and compete over. Close to Luffy's bounty, maybe 130-150.
Robin and Franky: Of course Robin's will be raised when (and if...) she escapes because when (and another hopeful if) Franky joins them, their combined minds will be an extremely dangerous threat to the world through the eyes of the government. Maybe... 100-120.
Nami, Usopp, and Chopper: Last but definitely not least! All three are powerful in their own rights and can hold their own in (certain?) battles. Somewhere between 60-90 maybe.
I'm going to have to disagree. Without a bounty, no one would really care about them. The ranking system between pirates is based off of bounties, (look back to Mock Town). And the government wants them caught, preferably without loosing their own men, (we now know how pathetic and cowardly the government is; most of them anyway), so they'll want bounty hunters to go after them.Originally Posted by hrseber
I'm not saying that the bounties aren't important for their ranking system, I'm just saying that at some point they will stop raising the bounties because they will be on a whole other level. The Shichibukai are always introduced, with the exception of Hawk Eyes, with their previous bounties. Now do you really believe that their powers haven't increased since they joined the world government? Remember, Rockstar, the newbie who joined the Red Hair's crew? He's a newbie but he had a previous bounty of 94Million meaning that, the ranking system is no longer important once he entered the Red Hair's crew. I think it will be the same with Luffy's crew or at least with just Luffy. They will be on the same level as the revolutionary Dragon, who has no bounty we know of but is an enemy of the World Government.
I agree that the government will not go after Luffy directly, and may wish for bounty hunters to apprehend him and his crew. I also think that they will offer Luffy the post of Shichibukai, except of course he will turn it down. Which will make him more dangerous under the eyes of the world government. Of course they could issue an order to the shichibukai to take him down, since their role is to keep other pirates in line. Anyway, this is why I think the next arc will be the pirate summit. That should answer all of these questions.
I'd completely forgotten about Rockstar. So when they got to this whole-other level, would they only have the Shichibukai to apprehend the threat? I can see Luffy getting to this level but probably not for awhile. The government will probably send the Shichibukai after them and when (and if) he defeats whomever they send, then they'll consider him to be a major threat. I don't even think the official declaration of war could constitute this level of "bounty" because I'm thinking the government has a lot of faith in their pirate puppets.Originally Posted by hrseber
So yeah, I think one of the Shichibukai, (or maybe all of them, like everyone getting paired up in a fight type of scheme), will come after the Straw Hats. I'm still sticking by my prediction of Luffy's bounty because I don't see him reaching this level of "bounty" until something bigger happens that makes the government really worry.
everyone will get a bounty or their bounties will rise...because dont forget that they are formally oppned fire on world governmet by attacking one of their islands with marine HQ...whoever does this against a nation, they automatically becomes on wanted list...
The second they burned the Goverments flag, they became Revolutionaries.
i think this seems about right. the only ones that might not have a bounty would be nami and chopper since they havent done as much as the others.Originally Posted by Locksmith
and i think sogeking will definitely get a bounty since he not only raised hell with the giants but burned the flag as well, not to mention being on the puffing tom with sanji & franky
i think everyone's bounty will rise...but i really think that sanji should stay uncovered, no bounty, he's just like luffy's secret weapon
Luffy's secret weapon AKA 5th strongest (Luffy, Zorro, Franky, and Robin are all stronger) hahahahaOriginally Posted by nicnocquee
Oh and Robin and Franky being together COULD have revived pluton except for the fact that Franky burned the blueprints, so unless they find another blueprint they can't really do much.
Maybe they will try to erase the mugiwara pirates kind like no name country that lost in the void century....... no bounty will be raise
[font=tahoma][color=green]Are YOU KIDDING? When Crocodile got defeated the HIGHER ups got SO pissed they want to make sure he get captured at all costs, especially if that certain somebody has only 30 million beli. If he gets out alive beating the CP9 and all, man do you know what THAT MEANS? Not only have the messed the ENTIRE army that guards the HQ but the CP9 as well. I'm pretty sure after this, every bounty hunter and pirate (guys like blackbeard) would be so hot in their trails. And even if that didn't happen there's NO way they'd be erased like void as you mentioned, he's a 100 million dollar person!Originally Posted by futboalimmortalz
I was under the impression that they wanted to take attention off of the mugiwaras... His bounty increased to warn their own men (marines) sure.. if they see 30 mill they'll act differently than 100 mill. If they really wanted to capture them I'm sure that they could have easily dispached a CP/Shichibukai to get rid of them...
Luffy :The greatest bounty even.
And someone said that Mugiwara is the smallest crew,thats false,blackbeard's one is formed only by 5.And If you read the chapter 407 you should know why Chopper will have a BIG bounty on his head.
Most licklie Ussop will keep the mask because he will get a bounty and is a happy man with a bounty or like most of his lies coming true he will get his 80000 followers known as the franky family
I never thought of that.. Ussop having followers from those guys and the giants.. that would be really cool, except I don't think Luffy would want them following him around, maybe in another ship?
Sanjis consistently acting like a secret agent, he's very tactical and when he's not actually fighting he pulls off some really cool shit (Enel's ship, Crocodile's cage)
I would kinda like to see him not have a bounty, but I think it would be a blow to his ego.
408 kinda scared me Lucci vs Luffy. Luffy looked really pissed, if he seriously messed (maybe even kills...) Lucci his bounty may get too high and he'll be constantly attacked from bounty hunters :/
