Seriously guys, can someone explain to me what is this "hype" around Rebecca that u r talking about???!she was superowned effortlessy by Luffy, she didn't show any feat yet, and she thinks that she can take down DD just by eating the mera mera DF which is "noob tought" as we know...IMO Rebecca it's way weaker then Cavendish and Bartolomeo who wouldn't be a threat to Sanji and Zoro so to say...
She's strongly tied with the story of Dressrosa. She was trained by the Soldier. She's a recurrent fighter of the Colisseum, and contrary to her gladiators friends, she's not injured. The fact that Oda decided to give her such an amount of "screen-time" and even a flashback tells a lot about her "role".
Personaly, I don't even like her until now. She didn't show me anything special, so I don't feel a bound yet. And I strongly believe that Oda will not, in any case, make her a princess like Vivi 2.0, weak but with a strong will. At least, I think it would be really disapointing to do that.
That's why I believe she will be strong. More than Cavendish.
But Oda loves to surprise us and do the contrary of what we think. So she might be weak as fuck too. We will see soon !
And exactly like Bartolomeo, that is something that I'm dying to discover, even if the fact that I feel a lot more concerned is understandable.
One also doesn't have to be rich to get a cigarette.

One possible explanation for Dofla's child pic is that perhaps, among World Noble children, Dofla was a rebellious child instead of a clean and proper one, or rather he was similar to Sabo. Sabo rebelled against his Goa noble heritage. In the same vein, Dofla rebelled against his World Noble heritage, which would explain more or less why he became a pirate. Instead of living like Charloss, Dofla wanted a life of adventure. Remember that Dofla was 17 when he watched Gol D. Roger's execution.
"He does not know that they are coming to the NW at that exact moment?"
Law knew Luffy would come to the most dangerous island similar to the way Smoker waited for Luffy at that thunder island. Both of them knew Luffy loves adventures or more like crazy adventures. Law just had to wait for Luffy in this case.
"He had his plan figured since really long time ago right? so the aim is to kill DD!"
Law true intention is to drag out the fight with DD so that Franky, Zoro and Luffy have enough time to destroy the factory, this is a big different from he wants DD dead by his own hand.
^ It's much harder for Law to kill DD himself because DD knows about his df inside out but it's a big different if Law uses as many dirty tricks as his' df abilities allow him to drag out the fight until the factory destroyed, in this case Kaidou will be the one who closes down the DD's empire so it doesn't require much hard work. The first case, Law might fail and DD kills him but in the 2nd case, Law is alive but DD looses his empire and maybe his life.

I have no problem about this, but not many people in here likes the speculation that croc used to be a female.
Basically speaking, DD was disowned when he was quite young, he looked like someone who said: "even though I'm broke but I still have class!"
DD smoked dope not cigar! Still it's too early to judge about this.

^Not sure about many similarities besides the blond hair and a smile.
But at least you hghlight the problem yourself, it would be nearly exactly as with Sabo and that would be highly annoying and un-Oda like.
Just as many would like him to have a 'female' back story too. I hope your argument is not 'many wouldn't like that'.Originally Posted by MBVC

Sabo was a noble. But he want to be a pirate.
So he scape from hes family to search for hes dream
However, this isn't a matter of liking it or not. No matter how much someone dislikes the possibility of Crocodile being a woman at one point in his life, they'd have to be pretty ignorant to completely dismiss it.
First Oda had a guy like Iwankov, whose most famour trademark was changing people's sex, talking how he knows about Crocodile's secret/weakness. Then we have a flashback of Roger's execution showing only the back or Crocodile's head. If I remember correctly, everyone else's face was shown. Doesn't matter really. Then lastly, we have Oda showing Croc as a kid which could pass as both a boy and a tomboyish girl.
Oda doesn't just put these things for nothing. He's either trolling (making us think that Croc was a girl) or Crocodile used to be a girl.
i did expect him to defeat an admiral i think u have got it wrong
i said burgess and he is not an admiral Also, i didnt say one min.
i only predicted that chinjao will handle fujitora while luffy deal with burgess
unless Fuji decides to deal with burgess in order to weaken the bb pirates
