    That and he has super speed, there's no way the barrier can be activated forever; there has to be a lag time or like Bart stated"If you cross your fingers you can create a barrier" before he can do that i'm pretty sure Luffy can whoop his ass. I was doing my research online about famous pirates of the Caribbean since i know Oda likes to derived his characters name from famous pirates like: Edward"Blackbeard"teach, Anne Boney, Captain William "Kidd" Bartholomew Roberts, John "Hawkins" most of em within the same generations etc..... now i ran into this information where Anne Boney used to work for "Jack", what if that is who Bart is working for??? Oda mentioned him in Punk Hazard so is only a matter of time before he come to light.

    What if Bartman is also a Haki user and infused his barrier in it making it like Sentomaru's "strongest defense" or something like that.

    Probably.....but I thought Caribou's person would be BB. And I don't think it would make sense for Kaidou to send someone, since Doflamingo would probably give it to Kaidou if he really wanted it. And Bartolomeo doesn't look like the kind of person to hang with Big Mam's crew, so I'm guessing Shanks. It would be very surprising, but it's not likely now that I think about it ......should've have picked "other". I don't see why Shanks would want the Mera Mera No Mi.

    I found Bartolomeo's power kind of lame and the least surprising answer to last chapters cliffhanger. I'm not going to say it's one of my least favorite fruits yet though because I have a feeling Oda will probably have Bartolomeo use this power in some sort of creative and unexpected way later in the tournament.

    I'm more surprised seeing Bart working for someone.

    The holds no respect to anyone, whoever he's working for gotta be someone special to hold him on leash.

    Re: One Piece 709 Discussion/ 710 Prediction

    Barto is working for Eustass KIDD, since I feel that his look suits the whole metal theme that Kidd's crew has. Kidd is repel and barto is barrier. PErfect match lol


    Can someone message me an anime that's similar to d grayman or claymore or deathnote?

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    Hmm yeah i wouldn't mind if he turned out to be from WB's crew but i don't get from where you get "he's nice " part . He is not nice at all if you ask me he just likes to be a clown and he doesn't cause prob , at least for now, 'cause he is there to get the mera DF after all . He's not that stupid

    From the way he's saying it it makes me believe he's working for someone or he's faithful to someone . If that someone wasn't an important person and just his little brother or friend or whatever then he could have just blurt it out straight away . The fact that he's leaving it like that makes me be 100% sure that person is someone important in OP world

    Maybe if he hit Bartolomeo's barrier directly, but he didn't. It was just an aftershock. I think it would take a direct hit with Haki in order to break that barrier of his. And I'm sure not everyone could break it with Haki.

    He could have just blurt it away, but that's not how things work. Look I'm not saying he isn't working for some big shot, but it's not a given at this moment. There could be other reasons for hiding the identity of "that person". Among the big shots, there aren't too many people who don't have a devil fruit. I doubt Barto is working for Shanks, for example. As for Blackbeard, it's still unknown whether he can use more than 2 devil fruits. Both Big Mom and Kaidou have been implied to have some kind of ability. Perhaps it could be one of those guys shown watching the transmission from PH. I believe there are plenty of strong guys who are still uncovered.

    I don't think that Bart is a part of BB's crew because the members of the crew don't seem to have any DD fruit powers,so I think barto would have been killed on the spot and have his power taken by BB.

    ---------- Post added at 07:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:15 PM ----------

    I don't think Bart is working for wb's crew,BB,kaidou or shanks,first I believe that BB has the power to contain and control more fruits then just two and its seem like to me that none of bb crew members have devil fruits.Plus its been said that BB's crew is capturing pirates with DD fruits so why would bart be working with him.

    Also I don't think wb's crew or shanks would work with him because I don't see either of crews working with someone so violanet (Bart gunned down seven innocent people).Lastly why would kaidou send bart to get the mera mera fruit if he could call up doflamingo to send it to him.

    I didn't mean that he's nice, but that he is nicer than most of BB's crew.
    Even if he's a commander or even lower under BB, he's a foul-mouthed punk, yeah, but he hasn't appeared to be cruel yet.
    For example, when he threw that ball into the audience and everyone thought it was a bomb, I think that had Laffitte done that (for example), it would have been a real bomb. Also, BB got some of the worst and cruelest prisoners from level 6. To me, Bart doesn't seem to hit that level. And because I don't think BB would settle for anything less than the best of the worst, that's why I think it's not BB.
    That, and Burgess is already participating, though we've yet to see anyone from ex-WB, and I do think we should see someone. It can't be that Marco and the others would just ignore DD auctioning off Ace's fruit.

    Although Bart's face seems to fit into Kaido's animal/beast theme, his ability seems to be odd one out. Unless he thinks getting the Mera Mera would make up for that.

    I don't see Big Mam or Shanks showing up though. I think they are not at all invested/involved with DD or Dressrosa or the fruit.
    ---


    I wonder how far in we'll get into Block C/Luffy's fight before we switch to the others. Either way, I'm happy that the matches are going fairly quickly.
    Also, don't the winners of the Blocks go straight up against DD's men? In which case, Bart and Luffy would not be fighting (providing Luffy wins his own).
    Now that Ricky lost, I also think that Rebecca will lose. If their goals are the same.
    Honestly, Blue Gilly's legs creeped me out a lot.

    From the toy soldier's words and Ricky's/Rebecca's actions, it seems that DD rise to power was not completely fair. It would be a nice twist if it turns out he's holding the whole island hostage. Will also explain Law's worries that no one seems to know/be concerned that DD lost his Shichibukai and King position.

    Hey, I just thought of something. Everyone underestimated the King's power, and look what happened (granted, some were right about Bartolomeo's power blocking it, but still). A lot of you believe that Rebecca is weak just because the guy that Luffy easily took down bullied her even though she's called the Undefeated Woman. Since the King's punch lived up to the hype, care to reconsider your thoughts on Rebecca?

    The story is moving forward which is great. The king's punch is very impressive. I think the ole boy Luffy is going to learn it, and it seems like things are about to heat up with Franky and the factor. I think this arc, the strawhats are going to gain a lot of allies. I also think that Bellamy is going to join Law's crew

    Well...Luffy did say that he had never seen a punch like that before, so i think Bartolomeo is the one that deserves more credit then anything for making the King's Punch look weaker then it actually was. Also Bartolomeo keeps getting scarier and scarier, not only can he block attacks but he seems to be able to redirect the force of the attacks back at the user even though there hasn't been any sign of him absorbing the kinetic energy. And on top of that him mentioning "that person" reminded me the person that Caribou referred to as well. Interesting stuff.

    "Upon the back of his body not a wound of retreat scars it."
    One Piece is a series created by a genius, it's a masterpiece, it's like a fine wine, it only gets better with time.

    Well, how barriers can be used for attacking is obvious. Think of Barto's fruit as a specific form of CoA.

    i think law is likely to recruit him and a woman if the person inside sunny is who i think it is then law iss going to recruit her as well

    Depending on translation the undefeated woman part comes over as sarcasm.
