1. if you guys would have the power to dictate what would happen after the timeskip, what things would you change in the power-ups of the strawhats (and maybe their looks)?
well, let me start:
luffy - a gear fourth (you know, common engine got 4 gears so...) the gear fourth is like he goes into this mode that is a combination of an impact/reject dial (only difference is he is the one receiving the damage, not the dial) and shigan (which means his body or that part of the body will heat up and literally be a gunshot) then he bounces the impacts he received in that battle to the opponent with a single punch.
so luffy's rubber fruit displays properties of rubber:
normal mode: elasticity. stress strain from impact and electricity
gear second: hyper-elasticity (getting fast)
gear third: bone balloon (getting big)
this is how i describe my version of gear fourth.
1. luffy must use gear second and gear third first...as in, he needs to fight for a certain time for the impacts he recieved to build up.
2. he then activates this gear
3. he can only use this gear on one single, high impact punch.
4. but it would be like, super fast, faster than a gear second and with the impact of reject dial or shigan.
5. of course this move will take almost all of luffy's stamina (so this is just like a desperation move..LOL)
roronoa zoro - umm...i think ill have zoro's eye have a scar but opened instead of being closed or ill have zoro wear an eyepatch...also longer hair he can ponytail or something
ussop - going back to sogeking i guess...not too muscular and incorporated impact dials on a gun...also would love if he got a stag-beetle zoan slingshot (you know, an object who ate devil's fruit)....
robin - would love her to have that old hair again...its fine if the hair is shorter, but it just doesnt feel robin becoz her bangs are gone.
franky - maybe not too robotic...especially the arms.
brook - i like brooke overall...just his hat seems odd for me...maybe a headphone (though he doesnt have ears) or something would be more modern.
sanji - more rokushiki moves like rankyaku, a shigan kick, blue walk and sky walk are awesome...soru and a rokougan version of kick would be really cool....
nami, chopper are perfect for me.
1. you are oda-sensei in this thread and you can finalize the strawhat crew. who are the guys you would pick?
1. the strawhat crew can reach up to 15.
2. the crewmembers should be guys that are introduced in one piece.
3. of course luffy would be the captain so we cannot change that.
