Recently it was finally confirmed that Buggy has become a Shichibukai, and I was wanting to know how everybody felt about this. It actually makes a lot of sense to me, even though I don't think he's on par with the others. Buggy would still be one of the stronger members in most any crew.
He was spoken to as an equal by two emperors. He survived an attack from Mihawk. He used to be a member of Roger's crew. He's actually shown signs of being very strong physically, or at least his ability to levitate has been shown to lift a lot of weight. He's a capable chemist who has made some serious firepower. He's not even a bad fighter actually. If you added Haki to all of that I can actually kind of see it.
Buggy was a former member of Roger's crew, the most legendary crew so far. He's a villian in his own arc. He was a famous prisoner of the famous Impel Down. And now is a shichibukai. No doubt, he is a powerful underbroker has powerful influences in the underworld thanks to his pretty good relationship with the most powerful underbroker in the whole One Piece world:
Yeah, Buggy's actually as powerful as Whitebeard. He's just been hiding it the whole time. Buggy joining the Shichibukai is humor, it's supposed to be funny. He's the last character who should have the epitaph "Living Legend". He's a coward, a braggart, greedy, and a wimp. That's what makes him so fun. Oda is making a joke, try not to take it too seriously
Oh, don't worry. I take One Piece a chuckle at a time. xD
Who would you guys have chosen if you had your pick?
Actually, Oda stated once that Buggy could be strong if he actually trained. But even without that, the fact he's able to claim every twist of fate as his doing gives him crazy charisma
I could think a lot of ways to make him better with his ability. A bigger focus on his potential to lift or rotate his parts along with some new weapons could make some big differences.
Buggy. Making him a Shichibukai is too funny not to love. Otherwise, I don't really care. Preferably a new character. Two established characters were made Shichibukai, I'd like a few new ones introduced next. I guess there will be a seat open, once Law is kicked out, along with the still unidentified seventh Shichibukai. That's a discussion for a different thread though, we already have a thread to discuss the next shichibukai.
As you remember Buggy has been in search of the treasure of Captain John for a long time. Luckily, in Impel Down, Luffy gave him Captain John's armband, which contained a map of that treasure (chap 527):
From that moment on, Buggy was pushed, by the circunstances of the war in Marineford, far away of his search. Once he could get free of them, he intended to restart it again, with the help of the map:
Now he has a new nick name, which has been translated in different ways:
- Mangapanda and mangastream chose: The clown star Buggy.
- Mangarule chose: "The thousand piece clown Buggy".
- Cnet chose: "Thousand-Ryo Clown" Buggy,
- and finally Aohige in his spoiler chose: "Clown of thousand coins" Buggy.
Here Aohige's interesting explanation:
This would give the reason to Cnet and obviously to Aohige. I prefer Aohige's version because it fits perfectly well in the story of Buggy: he should have found the treasure.Quote:

Do you expect he'll be an ally to Luffy now? I wonder if he's regarded as a part of 'that' generation.
