So Caribou, nor Coribou, nor Albion, nor Lip Doughty were "supernovae". They are just as much called "Rookie" as Ace and Bellamy.
Luffy says the Pirate King is the most free man in the world. Conquer islands make him attached to something. He can't be a Yonko, but regarding Fishman Island is just a bluff of the moment.
Calling other pirates "supernova" (or even "ultranova" because of the much higher bounties) is completely fan-based. Sure, it's catchy but still wrong nonetheless.
thou u even shocked me with ultranova 1st time i heard it.
Yep guys, i'm understand Luffy's innocence. But i meant a "plot bluff", the mere acknowledgement of feats while sailing New World its going to protect Fishman Island, not something like Luffy will care about.
Guessing, Gyojin isle it's a kingdom in the World Government group, it's protected by them. It will be discussed about in the Reverie and bound the ties between them.
Yonkou first then Pirate King
As it seems Yonkou isn't a title you give to yourself, but a title WG gives To the four most strongest and influentional pirates from New World, so if Luffy manages to defeat any of the current Yonkou, then he might be considered by WG as one.
I also don't think that Luffy would aim to being Yonkou as his goal is to reach Raftel, find One Piece and become a Pirate King, but knowing Luffy I won't disregard such things as giving his protection to some territories as many of us didn't believe that he would give such to Fishman Island, but in the end he did it and just by this he might also become more well-known around the World.
Hope after this Arc we will be shown the news around the World about Luffy and his crew.
P.S. I liked the picture with the possible Yonkous. Especially the goattie.))
I don't ever see Luffy becoming a Yonkou. Mainly because it's not suited for him. At the best, he'll protect all the islands under him, but I don't see him accepting or acknowledging himself as Yonkou since it doesn't fit his image. I just thought of Luffy wanting to be a pirate king - if he's a Yonkou he cant' really be a pirate king as they might stand in the way of his freedom. The Yonkou are considered equal to each other, and so far Luffy has to be strong enough to take out any enemy Yonkou he has.
I agree with M3J.
Luffy will never declare himself Yonko, but he will protect the island on which his friends are.
I think this way of thinking reflects his simple personality.
Don't the Yonkou-aspirants have to do something to be called Yonkou, and not just match the power of Yonkou?
If Luffy takes on and beats a Yonkou, especially with Law's help, I doubt he'll be called a Yonkou unless people think Luffy beat a Yonkou by himself. To be a Yonkou, one must match the strength of another Yonkou or be very close to it... if Luffy wins with help, he can't be considered Yonkou level as he didn't win due to his own power. Same with Law. Maybe this is a way Oda might use to avoid Luffy being called a Yonkou?
