    not exactly: if the "spelling" his wrong google may show another thing with the same name,whereas the real character is not presented. that's the case of "jabra",who was "jabura" of the CP9. or am I wrong?

    It is a translation thing, other example is Jinbe/Jinbei. The English and Japanese versions are said differently due to the pronunciation of the names in their native language.

    But to be fair some of the names are really really butchered in the tournament. I can recall one of top of my head right now though.
    I wonder what did they do to randomize the group. Pick out pieces of paper from a box?

    What names do you think are butchered? I didn't see anything that was "really really butchered."

    I mean, just on personal preference, I would've listed "Shiryu" instead of "Shiliew" since Shiryu's name isn't supposed to be English, and people don't call "Ryu" from Street Fighter "Liew" haha. However, Shiryu's named after the Chinese pirate Zhilong, so who cares. I guess many people say Shiliew, so whatevz. (Could just list him as "M. Bison" ) But I wouldn't say stuff like that counts as a name being butchered, though.

    Re: One Piece General Discussion Thread!

    well, those are called typos, you know, when you miss a letter, have one extra or switch two while typing. that's neither intended nor butchered and you do very well know who is meant there. not like Oda created characters with those names <.<;

    Re: One Piece General Discussion Thread!

    Can we make prediction on who's going to win the tournament here?
    Or is that going to degenerate and this is going to become a huge war that would transform this thread in a battle thread?

    I'm also a bit afraid that this might kill the fun of the tournament, in the event where everyone already agrees on the one that would win

    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    Well, if it's only about strength, then Whitebeard, Roger, Sengoku and Garp should be the top candidates - without actually knowing what they can do... Shiki isn't even taking part even though he's canon.

    Ummm, yeah, but you guys got me sometimes. Especially Somker, in One Piece, there are alot of characters, so you don't know everybody. I literally thought someone named Somker. Especially, names changed since the first translation to when the volume came out.

    But you know, my impression was that, some or few people who behind the tournament didn't read One Piece or wasn't that enthusiastic about the series. So yeah, that's also get me down a little bit. It probably better if a One Piece fanatic do it. (but haha, fanatic of any kind can be crazy). I really wished we could used some of the Naruto tournament element. Cuzz I really really like what people think about low tiers people visit each other rather than comparing them with the high tier. Maybe I will make a thread.

    Don't forget Shanks.
    Not only is he super strong, he's also a fan favorite.

    I would say that the top candidate to win this tournament are Whitebeard and Shanks.
    But, technically, I think Whitebeard was stronger I believe, so I would put my money on Whitebeard.

    Ah! I forgot about him because he was in Cabaji's group!!!!

    But BTW... Other girls&guys that I'm missing in the tournament aside from Shiki: Fisher Tiger, Vivi, Crocus, Mr.9 (Miss Monday is there though), Zombie Cindy/Thindolly, Kaidou (butchered Moriah's crew), and Momonga.

    Aw yeah, not having Pekoms in the tournament is also a real pity as Caribou made it in the tournament...
