I wish that my supposition was based on my fandom of Smoker, but in this case it's more based in predictive logic...
Regardless of my own feelings, the mood set by Oda is that Vergo has been taken out.. Dead or not, he's out of action.
There's no way DD spoke so solemnly to Vergo, without due cause........ IMO at least...
I'd also like to know more about why Vergo was so feared, but he doesn't really need to be alive for us to know that...
Like Vergo said Law's undoing will be his lack of knowledge of DD's past...
There's a perfect time to learn more about Vergo.. and why Law was so intent on taking him out as a early part of his plan....
There are much bigger fish to fry at this point with two Yonkou and a pissed off Shichibukai...
I won't cry if I'm wrong.. But I can't see a plausible way that guy is still alive....
I think we might get a pretty good hint at Vergo's fate when the shadow figure (Aokiji?) makes his way to PH. At this point there is really no one left at PH and that guy seems to be heading there. So either hes going to get there and we're gonna see what happens or he may meet the SH's on his way there and not bother going after he interacts with them.
Smoker went all out against Vergo, when he started to feel that he will loose to him he went to Vergos pockets for Laws heart, If he could beat his commander he would do it and then give Laws heart back to owner, but he wasnt capable of beating him. Thats my point of view on their fight, even Smoker himself wasnt sure that he can beat Vergo so he left his right hand with G5 marines in case if he falls. Vergo lost vs Law+Smoker. Thats a manga fact.
And taking Vergo out as early part of his plan- Vergo wasnt part of early stages of Laws plan as he said himself that Vergo is his one and only miscalculation. Law would have died if not for Smoker getting his heart back.
@ Zerocooldx - It would be nice of Doflamingo if he search for his subordinates bodies at Punk Hazard, we will see. I sure hope that Monet is dead so Oda can add revenge motive to actions of Doflamingo and I sure hope Vergo. I still hold to my theory about Vergo having metal paramecia to be revealed, so his coming back and confirming my theory would be more than nice. I didnt wanted to bring it here but I do think thats and argument for Vergo getting back into action.
Dofla's goodbyes to his mates don't mean anything. Pell also had a nice goodbye. Before he went to his death, he had feelings not very much unlike those of Vergo and Monet. It was a good closure. And we all know how it ended up.
Alive until proven dead. OP gold rule. Oda shows proof of death when he doesn't want to leave doubt. If the death isn't shown, based on experiences so far, character is most likely alive.
I'm confused. I thought it was already clear that Vergo was using CoA Haki to harden his body and bamboo stick. Can anyone tell me why he might have a DF?
As for the food and spoon sticking to his face, this is One Piece and I don't think it's stretching it too far if that happens to someone without a DF.
surely he isn't gonna die,he will be saved somehow by dd or his men, and he will fight again in the main fight of this arc (his opponent will be either zoro or sanji)
I don't think Vergo is dead, but his role in the story is certainly over. Maybe he will get a cover story or appear in a flashback concerning Doflamingo's past. However, the recent chapter had his captain arrive at Punk Hazard along with Baby 5 and Buffalo being mobile again- we never know, he might be active again.
Well sadly for me it looks like Vergo is out of story... at least for now.
Hope that he will suprise Joker and Us with sudden unexpected comeback to Dressrosa during next arc.
I would like to see Vergo dead. Because that would make much more believable Doflamingo story. I'll explain myself: Dofla subordinates seems to have a close and caring relationship with his captain. And he seems to be worried about all of them and sad when he was losing them. Now we know that he just left Punk Hazard with out going for Vergo. And we know that he listen on the den den sushi the explotion of the SAD room. So, if he is alive, it would be pretty sad to see that his captain, after all didn't take care of him enough.
Buffalo is absent in last two chapters so maybe he was ordered by Joker to go once again on Punk Hazard and look for Vergo and Monet.
We will see. For me it would be shocking if we see their dead bodies in future.
So ill stick with Vergo being alive just slowed down.
If he died its like Doflamingo lost his Ace(pun intended) at start. I would like to think for now that Vergo is stronger than those seated guys that we saw some glimpses in chapter 700.. we will see sooner or later.
