There haven't been a lot of suprising or plot-twisting moments in One Piece for me.
The one moment that surprised me the most however, was when Kuma made Zoro disappear on Sabaody Archipelago.
Shirahoeshi being Poseidon. After Pluton I wasn't expecting a ancient weapon to be be a "living object". Oda did take me by all surprise.
Ace actually being killed because there hadn't been any major character deaths in the series yet and it seemed so happy-go-lucky that Oda wouldn't ever do it.
Shirahoshi being Poseidon
I totally didn't see that happening, because before it was suposed that Ancient Weapons were actual weapons or I would say machines or ships or something like this, thus it was really a big surprise for me.
This was one of those moments I just sat there gaping at the screen, checking if there's another page, gaped some more. And of course, one of the weeks I had the hardest time waiting for the next chapter (which was just as gripping).
It just was so unexpected. Basically, what people were speculating about were either a deus ex machina (Dragon, Garp, etc) would help them and bring them to safety and they'd be fine, or they were gonna get beaten and captured. Those were the two logical things that could happen. "Kuma shows up and makes Zoro vanish". Well, in a way I guess that's sort of a deus ex machina. But no way did anyone anticipate that the SH's would be separated to different points of the world.. No way.
Ace's Death. The whole culmination of an arc long effort. Every week you found yourself cheering luffy and the whitebeard pirates on until it all came to an abrupt stop here.
Gol D. Roger being Ace's father . I think noone saw that coming.
I nominate Kuma splitting the crew & Luffy being unable to protect a single nakama It was so surprising. It was his first real defeat as a captain. The first time Luffy felt real despair
So, it's the same as Hipster Xadyu & Organized

I just don't see how this revelation is a plot twist at all. It doesn't change anything. I was more surprised by the fact that Luffy did know about "Gol D Ace" & never spoke about it before.
Luffy declaring war on a Yonkou: I did not expect Luffy's first act, upon entering the New World, to be declaring Fishman Island his territory and challenge Big Mom to war over it. And send her a bomb, accidentally.
