He has still a long way to go before beating Jinbe 459 chapters record
Hee?? So, Jimbei 459, whos the second one, and how many chapters need Vegapunk to break that record?

Thinking about it, I dont think Oda teases his readers, he just builds suspense and builds future scenarios and worlds. that benefits his readers, because in that way, they come to a new arc with well builded expectations.

But he is shooting his smoke, just that it's never a lethal attack, but a restraining one. Just like Luffy he's not someone to murder villains, as can be seen from him using the blunt jugge instead of some sharp object. I always think about him using his smoker to suffocate, which makes it potential pretty harmful.
That comes from the fact that haki wasn't fully introduced by Rayleigh until after the war. Oda may not have fully conceptualized all forms of haki until that point, than needed to find a way to make it clear to the reader somehow.
I think Vergo's attack was created by his enorm mastery over Rokushiki as well as haki, enabling him to put enough pressure into an blow to shot something at high speed. The lenght may be explained by a long-long fruit, so Vergo won't suffer the negative effects of having a DF fruit, but being able to use it as an armament... but that only works with zoan fruits doesn't it?
I love his faces too, and now that you mentioned "dramatic performances", I can see a resemblance to kabuki theater from japan in past days. edit: did post before reading k-dom's post

Oda has changed the designs of his characters at times. Plus my crazy theory of his lower body being robotic.^^ But I really kind of see him being more of a gnome, than a dwarf:

disagrees... :-) ...
Regarding Smoker and his Haki, I was reading Smoker Vs Law Fight again and notice that here (or here on Batoto) (Chap 661 page 17 bottom pannel) Smoker's Jutte his all "Haki black".
Do you think it was indeed Haki or just an error / design inconsistency / something else ?

That panel you mention reminds me of Law's speed and power (gif by Warp Predator):
Law is awake. Weak and hurt but awake. That could be a factor of future results.
On the other hand, in secret room, in that tv screen at the right side, CC can watch Vergo vs Smoker, (live)... If CC has Smoker's heart, (and Vergo would be about to lose), that also should be a factor of final result of that fight... But, does he have Smoker heart for real or was he cheated by Law?

I don't think he has his haert remember the freezing rom where Kids n Sanji, Franky, Chopper and Nami was runnin from had lots of freezing prisons. I think Law changed Smokers heart with it. Also, Smokers heart could be with Law.

Also assuming CC heard the convo when Doflamingo sed Vergo to kill him. He may think that he wil wait for Vergo to be dealt with then use Smoker's heart to kill him. Loool. Or luffy could jump in when it's critical
silhouettes have absolutely nothing similar to the actual ones.
I always thought he would look somewhat like that lol
Oda makes a lot of weird shadow shapes when the characters have never been seen, we can see it for example on the first appearance of Decken.
So yeah, the shape is weird but i kinda see a big hat and a coat that hide a lot of his silhouette.
I really hope Vegapunk's not a dwarf, like really really not
But the real reason why i don't him to be dwarf is that i want Vegapunk to be this guy !
Of course, the bamboo is enhanced with Busoshoku Haki - nobody argues - but that doesn't explain the change of size of Vergo's weapon. Haki has never been able to modify the size of objets or people - it's an invisible armor which can be used to defend or attack.
Especially Wano, I'd like to see that island, and those samurais too, it would be very interesting for Zoro especially
Reminded me one thing Oda forgot that is the Fishman Karate dojo... Such a shame
But I'm sorry, we've got enough suspense already, this is pure stalling, not suspense, I just want to get done with this crap, the only interesting foe here is Vergo (and maybe Baby 5 and Buffalo guy), I won't lie to you, I hope Smoker would beat Vergo, and that Luffy somehow beat the crap out of the two other, I just want to see Dofla's pissed face
