Oda put one over on us all, when we thought we had an idea about the one piece world he gave us a 2 year time skip now we have more questions than answers. No one knows what the supernovas did, no one knows what the marines did, and no one knows what the Yonkou's did during that time. The marines made moves after Whitebeard died we have proof because they are spread so thin plus we saw Akainu going after Blackbeard himself. We saw X drake go after Kaidou's territory who knows the ramifications of that, one might be dead by now. But I feel that BB got that spot that WB lost and also I think Kidd did some damage as well so he might have made a fifth spot for all we know.
So to really answer your question I'm sure BB is the new emperor because of his knowledge of the seas, WB's old crew can't handle him anymore he is wayyy too strong now.
Blackbeard for sure.
I'm a noob, thats why it was in the spoilers thread hahahaha.

I'm not sure there will be a "replacement" yonkou. That was a unique situation in itself... So there might not be another...
If there's to be another Yonkou... BB for sure..
It's not really even a question IMO.
Nice to see this thread where it belongs.....
Bleackbeard or Marco the Phönix.
Yeah, since I did put it into the wrong forum, how would I move it to a different forum? I know its in the right place now, but for future reference, if I mess up again lol.
I personally don't thing BB will be part of the Younkou now. I think it will be someone completely unexpected, like Buggy.
I hope it's not Blackbeard. 2 years isnt that long of a period for him to be one of the Yonkou. So, im guessing it's some random pirate we've never heard of before, it's not like there arent any strong pirates left out there.
I would like to either keep the number of Yonkou at three or make it five. Four just ain't right to me. This is, off course, the rampaging era so I would expect more divisions within the NW in regards to territorial factions, etc. I don't believe WB's territory was the only parts of the NW at risk; prior to the time skip and after. It'll be interesting to learn what actually has happened to the balance within the pirate "hierarchy" if you like.
I don't think that there is a new Yonkou in the New World. I better think that the new Whitebeard Pirates are fighting against another pirate crew for the control of Whitebeard's territories, so that there will be two half-Yonkou crews. After all, Oda said that we would see Marco again and I am pretty sure they came back to some of their old territories as Whitebeard asked them.
I first thought that this opposite crew fighting the new Whitebeard Pirates would be the Blackbeard Pirates but it does not make any sense. The first reason is that they are not aiming for the Yonkou title but for the Pirate King title, so they better have to advance in their travel to discover new things, and not to stay to protect and control territories.
The second reason is that I believe the Blackbeard Pirates will be the final pirate opponents of the Strawhat Pirates, so they have to be better than the current Yonkou crews. As the opposite pirate crew will be an half-Yonkou crew, it does not fit the plot at all. To me, the "Marco arc" will actually be a pre-Yonkou battle in order to make the Strawhats be ready to fight a true Yonkou, who I think will be Kaido.
People, people, I don't mind all the speculation, but you have to remember one thing: this is Oda we're talking about. You can never be sure about anything. You may be certain of some things in the curent chapter only to be surprised by a plot-twist in the next one. So yeah, Blackbeard might be the new Emperor considering the power he took from Whitebeard and the new crewmembers, but he may also still be fighting for the seat even after 2 years. Until Oda shows us what the hell happened in these 2 years we wont know anything. I just hope in the next chapters either Hacchi or Jinbe sheds some light on what is going on in the world.
yep yep!like you all stated it is possible that BB is the new yankou and i agree with you but come on i honestly don't get how enel got into this conversation ...we never heard from him ever since and it's not like he was that strong anyway and he can't win against luffy since he's a gomu so it would be kinda absurd that he would be the next yankou IMO
another candidate could be marco 'cause he really is strong and even the elders from the WG acknowleged him to be able to stop BB if he caused an uproar so yeah i think he is the best option to be the next yankou
I think Marco will be the fourth emperor. After Whitebeard dead he is the strongest Member of the former Whitebeard pirates. It seemed even Shanks respected him,Marco controls a Mystical zoan Fruit which works like a Logia. He could control a few of Whitebeards former Territories. A strong pirate crew like Whitebeards won`t just disappear after their captains dead...
