I think the young master thing refers more to a mafia/yakusa thing than a noble family given what we know of flamingo activities. But i don't rule out any possibility
Man i'm gonna enjoy seeing the way he's going down .
Also i'm curious if Luffy will encounter him in this arc . DoFlamingo seems quite interested in Luffy , every since he took Bellamy down and then with the whole Enies Lobby thing and to top it all the Marineford war . Since then he's been eying Luffy I'm also curious what he meant about him being a better vessel than Law . Maybe for his experiments concerning the growth of normal people into giants ?
Don't think Caesar was patched into the den-den-mushi when Donflamingo spoke about killing him, Vergo already said they don't trust him and I doubt he's in the crew more of a work for hire dude. I think SAD may be the liquid form of the candy that Slimey was given, one of the tanks in the room is labeled: H25 or H2S, if the latter CC has already referred to Smiley as H2S (much to the chagrin of some posters).
Earlier in the arc i considered how useful Smiley could be as a weapon of mass destruction if it could only be used once, maybe H2S is fed the Sara Sara no Mi then you also have to buy the SAD from CC for as long as you wanna use it... But i'm not 100% on that theory because Smiley just doesn't seem that important or effective to New World calibre people.
Small point: there's a door into the SAD container, possible the stuff isn't toxic until catalysed with Smiley or at all.

Except Dofla mentioned the whole kill Law thing only after being attacked by her, not before it, she attacked before he said such a thingQuote:
This Chapter is one of the best ever in One Piece, it was really balanced Chapter. I love any single Site in this Chapter. From the beginning of Sanji Fanbase to the end of a Dragon. Let me start here. What that means Momosuke transformed in a Dragon after going in a secret Room. Should this mean that in this Room and on the Island are Devilfruits??? Then i go a step forward and would predict that SAD is a real anti Devilfruit gas. Cesar is the only one who can produce it about changing the air around him. That the Gas can not affect him, that would be possible.
But i got a open Question also. Which Manga Character is meaning by Nico Robin. Its clear Nami is Naruto, Lysop is Bleach, Brook could be Toriko (food components of Bones). I can´t get it which manga or Person its meaned with Nico Robin, when its also from WSJ?? If someone know please, tell me.
Let's not forget that momonosuke having been transformed into a dragon is only what Oda wants us to believe. That may be a trap, it's a little naive girl who said that after all.
Doflamingo must have a good idea of Law's and Vergo's abilities. If he trusts Vergo to "kill him mercilessly" and "make him regret that he was born", that tells us how strong Vergo must actually be ! I think Sanji got lucky on this one...
It's like saying Oda made a Skyrim reference when that first dragon appeared, as if creators of Skyrim invented dragons.
Yes and no, all you said is correct. But that isn't enough to deny the possibility that he did indeed making a reference.
Who know, maybe Kishimoto makes a dare or something, or it was some sort of insider joke. I would like to think that the mangaka's community is tight knit.
On other note, I almost get detention back in middle school for drawing the swastika. Grew up in Asia and being an immigrant to the USA, I saw the swastika all the time on tv but ignorant of it being the Nazi symbol. I wonder if it is my fault for cultural ignorant or my teacher's fault for being religiously ignorant.
Anyhow, the tie back is that I love the original WhiteBeard's jolly roger, the new one is lame but I guess it is a nice gesture to change it.
But I hate how people that are ignorant of the East often accused shit without foundation. For a while, when there is no dark skins character in Naruto, people saying Kishimot is racist for no reason. How about the pokemon, Jynx, I still think it is offensive to accused someone of being a racist or having a motivation of put down another race. And lastly, the fishman island arc. Yes, the reference to civil right is clear as day (especially about the blood transfusion). But I love how some people accused Oda for doing it too shallow. Some even implied that because he doesn't going through those thing to make it authentic, or being ignorant of the issues (I feel people that do those complain mostly are Americans). But how many of those people are well verse on imperialism and the racism that plague the East (between White and Asians and Asians and Asians). The fact is that Queen Otohime could very well be Gandhi, and Fisher Tiger could have been Ho Chi Minh (both men have accomplished more and certainly have more influences than Dr. King and Malcolm X). I strayed away from the original discussion a bit, but yeah, this stuff has been on my mind.
It's not just your teacher's fault for being religiously ignorant, it's the western world's fault for making svastika into a product of Nazis, and not explaining (even hiding) its true origin and meaning.
Enough bitching from me, let's move on to the chapter
I didn't realize that these could be references to famous mangas, when I read the chapter. The Naruto and Toriko references make sense to me, but the Bleach one doesn't - we don't really see tengu in Bleach, right?
The Mangastream translation makes more sense. Dofla said "I'd kill him". He could be talking:
1. in Law's place, trying to predict what Law's next actions would be
2. what he'd do to make sure Law's plan fails
Since those were just Dofla's speculations, we probably won't know and it's not important.

btw,those who thought that the dragon was momonosuke weren't so wrong: he has just turned into a dragon,but it shouldn't be the one just defeated,imo. I wonder whether kinemon will knock him down and then despair
Actually, what really intrigues me is the fact that Kinemon just nonchalantly mentioned ninjas and ninja techniques as if that is something he's seen before. It wouldn't be the first time Oda forshadows things in seemingly innocent character remarks. I'd say the possibility of actual ninjas appearing in One Piece grew a little with this chapter.
Maybe we'll finally find out who wins in a battle of pirates vs. ninjas
