    It just was so unexpected. Basically, what people were speculating about were either a deus ex machina (Dragon, Garp, etc) would help them and bring them to safety and they'd be fine, or they were gonna get beaten and captured. Those were the two logical things that could happen. "Kuma shows up and makes Zoro vanish". Well, in a way I guess that's sort of a deus ex machina. But no way did anyone anticipate that the SH's would be separated to different points of the world.. No way.
    Kuma splitting the SH's on Sabaody Archipelago

    For the reasons stated above and zelllogan's.

    I'm always surprised that this event is never more nominated because it was one of the biggest surprise in One Piece : Robin joining the Strawhat after they leave Arabasta.
    plus it's one of my favorite chapter, I love how robin hypnotize the crew member after member.

    Lots of fans joined the "one piece fanclub" already knowing Robin joined. That event is , in real life, 10 YEARS OLD.

    I support this nomination too ... Don't wanna repeat what Organizized said. Even though Ace's death was shocking and that even after 5 chapters I still couldn't believe it and hoped for a miracle (I still remember myself throwing some crazy theories to get him back but ...), Kuma splitting the SH's was way too far to expect IMO, cuz in Ace's case there were only two possible scenario ... Ace will live or die, and one of them happened, even with this balance to his favor : 99,99% would live and 00,01% would die (IMO) --> I was able to expect the 00,01, thing that couldn't even imagine for Kuma splitting the SH¡s.

    well unless you were spoiled, there was one time when you didn't know and were surprised.

    That's quite exaggerate a lot of us expected Ace to die if you reread the discussion of that time. Many people wanted a death to make luffy grow up and that's what Oda did.

    Indeed, I said I was shocked, and I couldn't imagine him dying there, but we kinda knew what could be the aftermath of the war, either he dies or lives, even if "we" couldn't imagine him dying that possibility was there, but for what Kuma has done was way too far to expect IMO.

    In fact I was answering to Zellogan, but you answered before me and your post was in the middle. I edited mine to avoid confusion.

    Re: Most Surprising/Shocking Moment (Plot Twist)

    This is probably the only plot twist when I feel disappointed by Oda. In fact I didn't like the reason why Ace choose to hate his father and I still don't understand it. To me, the purpose of this hate is only so that Oda could mislead us in believing that Ace father was Dragon, so that when he finally reveal it's Roger, you feel twisted. I don't mind being mislead, but not when cheap tricks are used. Oda usually does much better than that. The twist was good in a plot point of view but the way it was made weakens it in my opinion.

    Re: Most Surprising/Shocking Moment (Plot Twist)

    As BB invaded Impel down, I remember as even Ohana confirmed the spoilers, many called it fake (me included). A la "pics or fake. Because at that time it was simply surprising and unexpected. That's something I would call unexpected or a plot twist. Thus I agree with Kuma making Zoro disappear and my own vote Poseidon. Since they made a similar impact on the discussion threads. I also understand Ace death.

    As for the rest of the nominations I don't rly see how they can be considered surprising, shocking or even a plot twist:
    • As Kuma made the rest of the SHs disappear in the following chapter, it was much less surprising and it was clear by now that Kuma saved the SHs by his act.
    • As Oda revealed Ace to be Rogers son, I thought of that nothing more than an asspull. For me it was rather clear that at time Oda created Ace and Roger, he didn't think this through. I mean this whole Mom carrying the child for 20 month was touching, however from the perspective of a writer, it seemed to me too forced to create a father son relationship. Therefore I wasn't surprised or anything, just disappointed of Oda's weak writing.
    • As for the "Monkey D" family and Luffy picking a fight with BM, not something I would call shocking/surprising much less a twist.
    Anyway, I don't intent to create a discussion with my post, just writing my thoughts. I hope there will be more nominations. Just saying I expected more from this Thread. True I nominated myself just a recent twist, but this twist made a huge impact on my theories, therefore I nominated Poseidon. I mean before Poseidon was revealed to be a living object and on FI, I was expecting it to be just another man made warship. Something like a submarine, since Poseidon in the mythology is related to sea. Also since the ponoglyph was found on SkyPia, which was originally part of Jaya, I expected Poseidon to be sleeping/sealed off in the waters around Jaya.

    Ace's death got as well, but I'll support this one.
