Not to mention BB gave shanks that scar even before he had a fruit.... the guy has not even begun to show his true power.
His true power was shown while was he was begging for his life, as WB held him in his mercy xD
Scars are memento of a meaningful event, such as a important fight.
... do you have to be so picky? Wb as the strongest man alive had naturally the upper hand. Again, being tricky is the most normal thing in a fight for death, you would have fairly would you?
Anyway... am I the only one to think that the scar is on his back too.
héhéh 100% confident about it.
Well I am so confident that I won't even dicuss further
I am just waiting for the next victory picture from his back with a X scar .
Just like this one (one of my favourite) but much better
Who in this manga is afraid of BB?
The only thing I've seen BB do in this manga so far is run away in front of more powerful opponent.
The only impresive thing he did was to defeat Ace.
So far, BB seems more like a comic relief than anything else to me.
Eventually, he might raise up to be a powerful opponent worthy of being the "last boss", but right now, that's certainly not the case.
The only impressive thing he did was defeat ace? Ok how about this.............break into and out of impel down with a crew of level six prisoners................fight evenly with sengoku(even for a short while) sb who is above the admirals?......................defeat one of the supernovas without breaking so much as a sweat............fight shanks and give him a scar pre-devil's fruit. I don't know. These events impress the hell out of me as well.
BB comic relief............NO! I've never felt like laughing at any of BBs appearances...I was in awe of him in jaya,I hated him in banaro island,hated him even more in impel down and was positively disgusted with him in marineford...at no time however were his actions funny
It's getting highly off-topic.^^
Just as Kyodai mentioned, it seems like you have read past the manga. Blackbeard was one of the better fighters in WBs crew, has taken down Ace, a Shichibukai candidate, just to become one himself. Besides the admirals and Yonkou, they are already the most feared pirates/people around. Last time seens he's taken down the most feared/loved character of OP and took his powers, now able to tear down fortresses, create natural disasters on his own. If that's not a reason to fear, your definition of the word must be pretty shaky.
Scars themselves I wouldn't necessary say means they're your rival however in this manga when you clearly have one from a powerful character then it comes as such. A rivalry.
Blackbeard in this case I feel he had a hidden power (another fruit) no one knew about but if you think about it. He's like Luffy except took extreme measures to make a name for himself. His plan to go into impel down wouldn't have worked without our favorite main character.
Truth be told Blackbeard isn't scary tactics or not he still has a long way to go as well. He has strong fruit powers but needs a lot of training. Or experience. He always runs when it comes to strong opponents seeing that he's a huge threat now. Lol I bet after the timeskip he got skinnier lol. Who knows. Or fatter. You guys need to stop getting off topic just wanted to throw in my input.
We've got a longer BB discussion going on some months ago. One important argument got caught, that he's a realist that won't face a danger he can avoid till he got the means to have the upper hand. He's not a airhead like Luffy, he's doing precisely as planed, his strategy has helped him to get the strongest possible combination of power. At least for him, it's nothing to be angry about.

The main issue here is that we have hardly seen everything WB has to offer. I honestly doubt we have seen even with WB's fruit the full extent of his capacity.
So we cannot conclude anything for the moment. Rayleigh told Luffy that he met Shanks taking a fresh start at Sabaody after he gave him his strawhat and lost his arm. Thus Shanks was not a Yonkou when he met Luffy and so when he got that scar. Shanks'strenght was between his apprentice's days and his rivalry with Mihawks. Probably strong enough to explain later Whitebeard that Blackbeard did not injure him by surprise.

But Whitebeard did mentioned that "everyone was surprise when a man like shanks came back from East Blue without his left arm"and so on. Doesn't that mean that Shanks was already/maybe a Yonkou when he met Luffy?
No he was not, just as Lord Rayleigh wrote. He chilled for a year at Windmill Village before he started his journey to the New World, where he met his old Vice-Captain and told him about Luffy. Losing an arm was obviously an device to create tension, show the hardship of the sea and at the same time tease Shanks real might.
I hate BB, but I think that Oda created the most perfect villain in all manga history. I could elaborate on this, but that would be offtopic ^^
From what i have seen Akainu can't have given luffy his scar because in the anime he has the scar in episode 224 and luffy didn't fight Akainu until the next saga and that was near the end of that saga (second to last arc)
