Though I do agree that Doflamingo has nothing to prove personally, as a combatant, Joker does have something to prove. His operation was dismantled live to the underworld by a couple of rookies. I don't know if Law ever made it on camera, but Luffy was seen trashing Caesar, and when Caesar said something like "You'll be pissing off Joker and a Yonkou", Luffy pretty much said "I don't care, let them come!"
That is damaging for Joker's reputation as an underworld trader, regardless of his fighting prowess. Luffy needs to be made an example of, or Joker will lose credibility.
They are not ready for Big Mam yet. They still have to prepare to take her on, battle strategies and things of that nature must be thought out. If they go at her head on, they would be killed. Also they have to do something about Kinemon and Momo.
I want Kinemon to join the crew, but regardless if he does or not, they will cure him of the poison gas. Momo is not ready for a war like that, and if they go into battle Kinemon would be a great asset.
Before they split Smoker will take Ceasar and turn him in, he will probably give the Strawhats new bounties for their troubles, LAw will go get his crew and make preperations to fight Big Mam, and the strawhats will take Momo and Kinemon back to their island. A new arc will start and while that is happening preparation will be made.
I think their is a chance that Killer will reach out to them about possible joining forces to take on a Yonkou together

While Doflamingo as well as the Strawhats are part of this chapter/arc and whatever else, this is not the right place to discuss their origin, backgrounds and possible inspirations. Discuss these in the appropriate threads please. Thanks -Akainu
While possible, a seven Supernova orgy seems unlikely. The Strawhats, Heart Pirates, and (eventually) Sun Pirates should be plenty. A six crew alliance might be overkill, better suited for fanfiction than a canon story. After ten months of Punk Hazard, it's easy to forget that Law has a plan, and it has not yet been shared with Luffy or the audience. Mam may have an army of SMILE fruit users, but this arc will end with her supply of SAD cut off. While the implications of that is unknown, it probably will have a significant impact on Big Mam's operation.
It's not like they are going to fight Big Mam within the next three chapters. Punk Hazard alone lasted ten months, beginning last February. It may be another year, or more, before they fight Big Mam. There might even be a multi-island saga first, before Luffy can fight her. Don't worry, there will be plenty of time for strategy and things of that nature. Don't forgot that Law already has a plan, developed before he arrived at Punk Hazard. Stopping the production of SAD was the first step. I'm sure he has more planned, before directly confronting Big Mam.Quote:
DoFlamingo is much more badass than Big Mom IMO . He will also fall but i think Big Mom will be the 1st one . Anyway Luffy entered the NW with enough bang Imagine when Jimbei joins them as well what bang will that be, especially since Jmbei is now part of Big Mom's crew
Actually everything has a connection , i'm looking forward to see how Oda will sort the plot from now on
I actually wouldn't mind, if Luffy just steps forward to knock him down with a single punch as he did with Bellamy and Charloss though instead of a long and bloody battle...
Also forgot to mention , DoFlamingo's way of flying is kind of funny . He resembles a drunk fly lol His DF sure is interesting but i really wonder if him flying is 'cause of his DF ? Maybe we all missed something
In no particular order the 5 strongest in the 3 crews would be Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Law, and Jinbe. Hell Pekoms is just a foot soldier and his bounty is 300 millions. If he is that strong, what will her top guys be like? Is safe to assume that the 5 i named will be hoding off the 5 best of Big Mams crew, so you saying the ret will right hundreds of her crewmembers?
I doubt it. I personally think that the Strawhats will go to Wano and after the arc Kinemon will join. Jinbe will meet with the Sun Pirates and tell them they are going to war with Big Mam, and Killer will reach out to Law and ask him what he has planned, and after Law explains, I think there alliance will want in.
So it will be the Strawhats, The Heart Pirates, The Kid Pirates, The Hawkins Pirates, The Sun Pirates and The on Air Pirates vs The Big Mam Pirates. Remember that even though the Whitebeards had a lot of help, it took most of the Marines to stop them. Im sure Big Mam has allies as well and she will not go down easy, so it will take a massive force to take her out.
This aint Ennies Lobby, Big Mam is a monster and it will take one hell of an effort to bring her down
if DD loses here it would be the fall of another old generation Shichibukai.. after Crocodile and Moriah. Jimbei quitting, Boa Hancock allying with Luffy and Mihawk doesn't really an enemy for now. A truely great embarrassing moment for DD but a great opening for new generation pirate like Strawhat Pirate and Heart Pirate to form an alliance. poor Mone..her dying wish and believe will never happen.
Franky rules.. i'm sure his creation will not easily destroy by a little explosion like that .
