I'm talking about the original Shiki that was intended to be Luffy's enemy in the New World. His character was absorbed into the movie. The timing of the movie could not possibly show Luffy after the 2 yrs timeskip so that's why Luffy had to defeat him prior to his 2 yrs training. The fact that Oda intended for someone like Shiki to become Luffy's enemy in the New World, who is neither a regular pirate like squardo, or current yonkou points to a strong possibility that some major powerhouses that we haven't met are waiting to have their arcs within future storyline. I apologize but I think it's too amusingly simplistic of a view to say that there are no character that falls inbetween someone like squardo and the yonkou.Quote:

i don't think Pekoms its just an"office boy",him and Tamago will batlle with the strawhats when the time will come.
A office boy wouldn't get that much attention by Oda nor would BM (someone's who gives a shit for her weaker crewmates) remember his name. Also I don't even need to explain that bounty doesn't mean everything.
I think that if he was so important (by this I don’t mean that he will be a Caribou like character) he would be collecting candies to her. Shanks didn’t sent Lucky Roo to take a message to WB, he just sent a rookie. His character could work like Blueno, been a warming-up to Luffy.
I don’t know if Pekons is a rookie, but I now the guy who was showed collecting candies is threat far above of many Shichibukais.
I mentioned it in the discussion thread for the newest chapter, but I will here because this is really interesting, Pecoms is based on Mock Turtle from Alice in Wonderland. I was planning to read this book again to see if it will help me predict any other Big Mom and their powers or looks, I think it was mentioned that they are themed form character form this book, now I think we can predict it more easily.
Second, what I understood about bounties in the OP world is that they do not rank the strength, but how someone is dangerous to the WG. Robing is a good example to this. She had a high bounty when she was a child just because she was Ohara survivor and most important, because she could read poneglyphs. Said this, I can presume that the higher the bounty is the higher is the threat to the WG.
By the bounties that we know from the Shichibukai, there is just one above Pekons. Of course some of them must be. I’m not saying that Pekons is a powerhouse, that he a top dog, nothing about this. I’m saying that the guy must be dangerous to the WG exclusively by terms of bounty. I can be wrong, but I wouldn’t fix a high value on the head of someone if it wasn’t an important person to me.
But saying he's dangerous than the Shichibukai, especially that we know that their bounties are frozen... To say that Pekom is more dangerous than the like of Mihawk & Doflamingo...
But yeah he's a top dog no doubt about it.
P.S : I love putting panels from time to time, it changes the mood somehow
So you saying that someone with more than 300M bounty is a mere fighter in a Yonkou's crew ?
http://mangastream.com/read/one_piece/16037697/5 It says right there he is a fighter in Big Mom's Crew, if he was higher ranked or a lieutenat it would have said so in his introduction box like here with Jozu and Marco http://www.mangareader.net/103-2541-...apter-434.html Guess we'll see who the top dogs are in Big Mom's crew eventually.
