Rather unlikely, but the Marines could have left some senior back in the NW base for defense of Mary Joa or the city itself. This would be a fantastic way to introduce some unknown high ranking enemy without someone lvling up impossibly fast.
Yeah Doflamingo wouldn't be accepted by the marines, but it would certainly be a suprise for everyone.

I also think some "unknown" character should be introduced as the new admiral or someone we would never be able to imagine. After all Oda is never predictable.
If it's a known character, It can only be smoker. Smoker is more interesting & seems to have more potential than all VC we have seen so far.
I would prefer a new character ... for example, some kind of fighting genius around the same age as luffy.
if its not one of the VA that we saw during the war, it has to be magellan.
magellan is just as devastating as the other 3 admirals. yes he amost was killed but he was up agaisnt a slew of legendary prisoners, virtually by himself so i cut him some slack for that.
I forgot about Magellan. He is a possibility.
But a new character is possible. Everyone wasn't at marine ford. Marine still had to leave strong marines in the new world. Plus, some genius newbie could have been discovered during the two year timeskip. Some strong guys could have been sick during the war ... There are enough possibilities to explain that someone strong wasn't at marineford
Magellan seems more like a shady character I don't think he fits the admiral position.
I like Magellan, amazing fruit & when he fights he's just as ruthless as the admirals we know, plus with the same sense of duty. But he's not a marine & that's quite a few ranks to jump just because you feel it is your duty to recapture level 6ers. The VAs don't seem up to it Smoker neither. I say bring on the new candidates but no more logias the marines can't keep having all those
I believe it might be either someone from the actual Vice Admirals or someone from special forces that we haven't seen yet to fill in the position of an Admiral.
Smoker is too far from the level of Vice Admiral and of course he is even more far from the level of an Admiral. Also he didn't have Haki before time-skip and he is in such age that you don't progress that much and don't gain such abilities as Haki in that age.
I also don't see Magellan as an Admiral for the same reason as Smoker. He doesn't have Haki. Even though he is damn strong. He isn't strong enough without Haki to become an Admiral.
About magelan, sure he is strong and all but he is nowhere near the strength of the admirals.He is like enel(a powerful df, better fighting skills than him etc..) but if we put him against someone like wb,shanks etc i don't think he would do even half as the admirals did in the war.
About the people who says that he will stay in ID and all don't forget that Sentomaru was also Vegapunk's bodyguard(though works for WG) and after the TS he became a marine.
anyway i don't know for sure if akainu or aokiji promoted to fleet admiral but i believe that either the admirals will be 2 or a new character will be introduced because i don't see any of the VA (maaybe Yamakaji just because Oda keep him always smiling and all this and who knows maybe he'll have a Logia power too, that's just me!!) strong enough to keep on head with the other 2.
Magellan can't be, He was defeated by Shiryu. I know that doesn't mean a lot, but It's something to consider.
Shiryu? What part of the manga did Shiryu defeat Magellan? Or should you say that the Blackbeared Pirates?Quote:
Actually as common logic goes, if person isn't stated to be Haki user - he isn't one. When he will be mentioned to have Haki I will agree, but until this we should consider that he doesn't have it.Quote:
Something I found out watching trailers for the new movie:
Almost all prominent marine characters are shown, however no one of them has become an admiral. That would imply that currently Kizaru is the only admiral under Fleet Admiral Sakazuki.
