I was just re-reading a few great moment in One piece and came across this one in Chapter 216:
As you can see, this is the Mugiwara's sign of friendship and their bond with Bebe (Bibi/Vivi). And we all know how important Nakama is to them, question is -- Do they still have that x on their left arm? And if not, why not?
They painted it right? Then the paint would go away at one time or another.. It's not like they need a mark like that to continue being nakama..
It probably got washed off in Skypeia or somewhere after they left Vivi. They still are nakama but spiritually.Originally Posted by bastukorv
Umm that sign was a silent way to tell Vivi they were still Nakama. They don't need to keep the symbol to continue to consider her Nakama. The only reason they used it is so that the marines would not have proof she was involved with pirates.
Gol. D Roger is dead, did that stop Tom and Dragon from being his Nakama? As far as I can tell they continue to live on in his memory with pride.
THere is no proof that GOl D. ROger and Tom were actually friends. And as for Dragon, there is no proof for anything about him....cept that he looks badass.
They've showed dragon like once, all they said about him was that he's the greatest threat to the World Government. That doesn't mean that he was Gol. D Roger's nakama, they didn't even say that he knew Roger.Originally Posted by refii
They didn't say much about anything from Gol D.Rogers lifetime....Originally Posted by SchmoDawg
and where did they actually say that Dragon is the greatest threat to the GW...???
stay on topic please
yes it was a sham.. because you quit caring about someone just because you washed the paint off.
How is this even up for discussion... ???
I think personally the strawhats all need to get matching tattoo's .. of thier mark to show solidarity.
it is no sham the fact that they all fight to protct each other shows that they are nakama for life and they have done it like every main battle they are always trying to save someone once for vivi and once for robin and twice for nami (arlong and eneru) and now they are about to risk there lives for each other
so they need no mark to show that they are friends but it does help they should have a side arc with vivi (eventho she wasnt my favorite person)and show that she still has the mark
would be cool if they had a tatoo like in the WB crew to show everyone that they're part of the strawhat crew, but i guess that this will happen only when luffy will have lots of crew memebers.
the x mark, aint there anymore, as you can see by reading the manga and looking at their arms. it doesnt mean they aint nakamas anymore, it means, the painting, got washed away. that's it.
I've considered getting a "X" on my arm as a real life tattoo. Problem is .. most jobs don't want the tattoo's visible ... and if i did a X anywhere else it would loose it's OP connection and thus it's real purpose.
you could mke it a really really small one but then agian the true purpose is lost
and the SH even old enought to get a tattoo dont you have to be over 18 of 16 and have a parent with them and since none of them have parents with them we know it must have just been paint and nothing more and that gets washed away but they are still nakama
LOL they're pirates ;D
they can do what ever the hell they want!
And remember this is an era where there is no law against tattoos, smoking, drinking etc for minors. It most definitely was just paint used for the sole purpose of showing Vivi they'll remain nakama forever.
