Yeah, I think that the arc with Smoker's crew will be the best, with each SH matched up against a strong Marine...it'll be kick-ass.
And I think that Smoker may be Luffy's "ally" at the end, although probably more of an anti-hero, as he is now, and will help take down the corrupt WG, since he has Moral Justice.
Monkey D Garp hunted down Gol d roger , and gol d roger barely escaped from like tons of times
i think it will be the same with luffy and smoker,
Smoker did come very close to catching Luffy both times, once lost because of Dragon and the other because Smoker let him go for beating Crocodile.
There was another time too, but Ace stepped in and helped Luffy..
Well, yes, there was that. My bad.
Does anyone think that Smoker will take on any other opponents besides Luffy?
He DID. In chapter 439, he's seen after taking out some random pirate. But I doubt that any of Smoker's other fights will be shown. He exists to chase Luffy and add to his legend, like Garp did for Roger, as DutchPhoenix aptly put it. He's there for that, and to be the good guy of the Marines, and to be the crux of the relationship between the Marines and Luffy. So I don't think he'll do much of importance that doesn't involve capturing Luffy.
...I mean besides random pirates, like actually major characters in the story line, of course not counting Ace and Dragon.
And if he's a "good" Marine, then when the WG turns totally evil, I imagine he'll be an ally against them.
how strong do you think Smoker is in comparison to the admirals?
I think it was mentioned that there were people who were just as strong as smoker but were ranked higher. i think smoker was referring to the admirals. he seems to know Aokiji (remember the messg Aokiji was supposed to pass?) so hes not some no-namer amongst the marines.
Additionally, he was one of the handful of Marines that Luffy's team could not beat (along with Kizaru and Aok).
Also, his smoke logia makes him indestructible, similar to the 2 admirals.
personnally, i believe that if Smoker believed in "Absolute" justice, he would be a vice-admiral at the very least
yea his rank does not reflect his strength but he is by no means anywhere close to being as strong as an admiral.
His logia is the weakest shown in the manga so far, it has no destructive force.
Smoker is just a guy with a huge ego
That's probably the reason why he has a sea stone tipped jutte. He probably can't be hit by most of the attacks, but his jutte would certainly be handy when fighting another logia. Especially if you consider that he can attack with it from distance.
And since he probably still hasn't perfected the use of his powers, he may have more surprises when we see him again. I can't imagine what those could be, but maybe Oda thought of something.
One of his great advantages is that he can cover a large area with smoke and obstruct his enemies vision while being able to attack them from any corner.
I imagine he could choke you until you are unconscious.
he can makes you breath the smoke and you know, smoking kills hahah
But I think smoker and coky in the end will be the heroes of the NEW MARINE (with out the WG)
Maybe smoker will be an admiral and cobby THE fleet admiral in the end.
Yeah, I have a side-bet that Smoker will take an admiral ranking from the first defeated admiral in the future. That said, he might just vice-admiral and be Garp v 2.0
thats actually a nice guess beastboy.
smoker represents the real justice type of marine like Aokiji and unlike Aikainu the red dog.
but i think we will actually see luffy fight smoker and tashigi fight zorro. Oda has developed his character too much and shown him too often to not have a grande fight between the two.
