    Buggy's current power

    Hello everyone! Since Buggy has now been shown to be one of the seven Shichibukai, do you think that his power has increased exponentially during the two-year time-skip, or has he simply bluffed his way in with the Impel Down pirates he commanded/commands? Discuss!
    Hey, Ace! Sabo's alive man! just thought you deserved to know.

    I certainly hope he became stronger. Although up until we last saw him, he bluffed his way in both occasions you mentioned.

    Yeah, to me Buggy has always been and will always be a goofy character. But it would be a fun twist if he has gotten really strong and becomes more of a main antagonist for Luffy in the NW.

    Even the idea of him becoming a powerful ally is not too far-fetched.

    Re: Buggy's current power

    I have to admit i was impressed by his power he showed us in Impel down. He had no problems defeating plenty of guardians and even the floor beasts.
    His new Mini Buggy Canon was also really awesome.
    I wouldnt underestimate him too much, but he is kind of a coward.

    My 2 cents (sorry for quoting myself):

    From that moment on, Buggy was pushed, by the circunstances of the war in Marineford, far away of his search. Once he could get free of them, he intended to restart it again, with the help of the map:

    Spoiler show


    Now he has a new nick name, which has been translated in different ways:
    Here Aohige's interesting explanation:

    Quote Quote:
    Buggy's new ephitat is "Senryou Douke" Buggy.
    It literally means Thousand Ryo Clown.

    Ryo is a currency in Edo-period Japan, and 1 ryo is one koban (gold coin).
    That's why I translated it as Thousand-coin Clown.

    Basically imagine Buggy as a pirate clown with a thousand doubloons.
    This would give the reason to Cnet and obviously to Aohige. I prefer Aohige's version because it fits perfectly well in the story of Buggy: he should have found the treasure.
    I don't think Buggy will be an ally of Luffy...

I woulnd't be surprised if it turns to be that Buggy doesn't want to be a Shishibukai, but forced for the circunstances he turned into one of them. That could mean also that WG is as blind as his Impel Down fugitives-followers were. But also it's possible that the WG knows pretty well who is hims and what he can do, and that they are using him as a tool to get something else. In any case, I'm curious about what has been happening to him this years.
    I hope that the major events, the most meaningful ones, in Buggy's story could be told with out mention how much powerful he is. Power is not what makes his story one of the most enjoyable of OP.

    Yes, I imagine he will remain a pirate with his own interests first, and a rival second, meaning they are more likely to be enemies than allies next time they meet, if I disregard the circumstances.

    I too believe he found the treasure of captain john, and he has probably used that to buy weapons or who knows what else, I noticed that his chop/chop powers work on items he holds and clothing as well as his phyical person, so with proper weaponry he may very well be able to attack in a similar manner to byakuya kuchki from bleach, just turn a seastone sword into many infinitely sharp blades and attack at once, and perhaps he has perfected his ability to move parts of himself away from attacks, meaning in the future someone may say his defenses are better than a logia class, since he can dodge any attack by moving a part of himself away, like tobi in naruto does which would make even haki ineffective.

    Re: Buggy's current power

    i highly doubt it. yes swordmen can't cut him but im sure people can still own him with the hilt of the sword


    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.
