A myriad of new badass pirates revealed in the latest chapter. And I bet I'm not the only one thrilled with it. What is their role, Who will fight who, who is bad who is good? There is lot to discuss, so feel free to share your feelings, theories or just name your personal favorites. I guess making a common supernova thread might be quite useful for untill we have enough info for separate character/crew threads. Discuss away!Quote:
For little hint, I might suggest checking out Sahugani's Review for interesting origins fact based on the names of characters.
I myself find Law, Kid, Drake, and Killer very intresting. Kid is such a cool looking badass! Like a thinner version of Moria
Law is very mysterious, and looks so 'chill'. Also the fact he bears a sign similar to Doflamingos picks my interest.
Drake is also mysterious, and seems to have code of justice. I wonder if the 'X' comes from the scar or the fact he attempt to hide his identity?
And then there is very corny named Killer. But you must admit that masked persons always catch attention. Also he is the only one who isn't captain of his crew. Looks bit absurd, I mean he has assasin-like mask and attidude, but seems to wear clothes similar to Doflamingo Wonder if he is silent and mysterious killer, or silly and Toby-like killer D

Imo, the most powerful (aside from Luffy) is probably Law, with Killer and Drake coming second. Interesting how only 2 out of the 11 come from the Grand Line, the rest are from the weaker seas. Apoo clearly has a 'sound' theme, I'm guessing Hawkins, Kidd and Apoo all have devil fruit abilities, whilst it seems Killer and Law are swordsmen, although Law seems to have some other ability as well, judging from his nickname. Capone is probably a marskman, whilst it'll be interesting to see how Urouge fights as hes from a Sky Island, expect a lot of dials?
All the designs are awesome IMO ..really looking forward to the new chapter

It's funny how Luffy has the second highest bounty due to the fact that he doesn't pick fights with civilians. To me that doesn't sit right Kid does damage to civilians and gets a higher bounty than someone who beat 2 of the 7 warlords of the sea and declared war againist the WG just to save a friend.
well kid surely must have killed some really serious guys on his way. coz pure civilian damage wont bring him that high.
kid seems to me the right opponent, someone who is as mad and stupid as ruffy. about every of ruffy's opponent so far was someone serious, maybe this time it will be more mad/fun then serious.
i also think hawkings will have something to do with Mihawk, not only do they share 'hawk' but both have a cross and also look very grimm.
I'm pretty sure Scratch Apoo has the power of the devil; some sound or Dj fruit I would guess.
When he wants to fight Kidd (with double d like the original pirate I think) he stands their like a DJ (imagine the turntables) ready to start some scratching and he wears headphones (or maybe special earmuffs). And don't forget; we're talking abou the "On Air" pirates.
So I would interpret this character.
And Kidd must be a real monster. Ruffy hat to destroy one of the marine's most secure prison to get at the bounty level he is now. Kidd must have defeated and killed nearly anyone he've met to get such a high bounty.

I'm hoping Law is a good guy, or a least will fall into the 'enemy made friend' cathegory. I like his design too much
when looking at the pictures a bunch of them have some type of edged weapon. so that means that Zoro will have to fight them. one cause luffy cant and two cause his pride wont let luffy fight another swordsman.
My predictions on the other 9 are in sahugani's review thread btw ^^
the present of these 11 Supernovas showed that the power of Navy/WG is weaken tremendously for not preventing these pirate crew from getting too powerful.. plus the threat of the emperors also..
And it looks like South Blue Kid pirates gonna be Strawhats new rival.. after all they have 2 member in the 11 like the strawhats crew..
Edit: these guys look more badass than that rnew recruited rockstar guy from redhaired pirates..

Here's my prediction for obvious rivalries/matchups, seeing as there are 9 strawhats and 9 other pirates.
Capone - Robin
J bonney - nami/sanji
Kid - Luffy
Scratchmen apoo- usopp
Drake - sanji
Urouge - franky
Killer - brooke
Law - Chopper
I'd find it hillarious if Sanji confronts Jewelry Bonney, and tries to win her over with his cooking, haha. I can see it now. She'd be eating everything up and probably wouldnt fight, lol.
I thought it was super cool that the monk turned out to be a skypian. His wings are huge, lol.
But indeed there were a lot of DFs in recent chapters so I too hope to see a lot of strong guys without the power of the devil; so I would expect from Drake and Killer for example.
But overusing DFs is quite dangerous indeed for Oda. But you can make something out of every DF. Look at Luffy: Man he's out of Rubber, what a lame fruit compared to e.g. Ace's on the first glance. But look what Oda made out of it (Gear 2 & 3). But the more you create the less you can eleborate on a single one which might have a lot of potential.
first- off i hope that the skypian is a nice guy like his island mates. he seemed chill.
second- i would love to see sanji cook against Bonney instead of fighting her (she needs just as much food as luffy does it would be easy for him i think)
third- apoo could have a similar DF to kuma something with spinning blades of air.
fourth- captin kid could be modled after Billy the Kid and instead of being very fast at shooting people he could throw his knives at people with crazy speed and accuracy.
in terms of fights with all the supernovas i just dont see it happening. some of them will fight each other. Oda doesnt want to have to many single easily called battles anymore he is working on combo moves. doc vs doc, sniper vs sniper woud be boring for him to do time and time again, the characters need to fight different people to get stronger (except for zoro)
if there where to be battle it would be this
KID - usopp - scratchman apoo (yes i think that if usopp tried he could fight them both at the same time)
Franky - Urouge
Zoro and Brooke - Killer - LAW
X Drake will not fight but will watch
Bonny - Sanji
Nami - Bege (he looks like the mafia guy and she can dodge bullets)
Chopper - Hawkins (he will be able to see through his majic and stop him)
Luffy will not fight he will be watching it all and pretending to be smart and studing them like X Drake but he wont be that much Robin will
i think that non of these fight will happen in full they will fight just to test each other out and then go on there own ways and get stronger.
