    We could have at least speculated about how strong the sea king was if Luffy hadn't knocked his ass out with a single punch damn near the very beginning of the story. At this point it just seems silly.
    Yeah the main question would be why. Theres still the Norse Arm offering theory, if Shanks has connections to Elbaf. Oda can still make it work so I'm not too concerned.

      I'd seen some of his stuff floating around but I hadn't gotten around to watching any. If he can make "Oda makes his characters big so you pay attention to them" sound that good i gotta check out the rest of his stuff. lol

        That just makes it worse... Bruh really gonna sit here and call my taste "basic" and "shit" when his own favorite series is akin to a (bad) Disney cartoon. This shit tragic.

          Yeah the rest of his stuff is great. I've been talking to him on Orojackson. We've been sharing ideas and such. You should hear the way he views Marineford. Completely changed the way I look at that arc.

            Considering OP was originally supposed to 5 years iirc, maybe.

              Perhaps maybe Shanks was afraid that if he used Haki or killed the fish Luffy might die in the aftermath.

                One theory I found earlier while browsing around this subject was that Shanks had panicked when he rushed over to safe Luffy. As we've learned with Katakuri, if a person's head isn't in the game and they are focused on using haki they can be injured. So the idea is that Shanks was like a terrified parent, rushing over to save Luffy and didn't think to use haki. The Seaking just got a clean shot when his guard was completely down.

                That theory... I can accept.

                It is that or he just didn't developed haki enough and despite being on Roger's ship he just didn't learn it. This is no different than being surprised Ussop got his arm chopped off despite being on the Strawhat ship, ya know a team who's captain just wrecked Don Flamingo. Ussop wouldn't be ready to fight with Haki despite just learning it and being in a team where there are so many proficient haki users. Especially when his captain has the rare and fable conqueror's haki.

                  The theory that One Piece was never supposed to run this long and characters were never meant to be this strong seems the most likely tbh.

                    That's not a theory, is it? I thought Oda confirmed it.

                  Luffy vs Katakuri scene from the new opening.

                    I can see the former happening, but I don't specifically remember if he was panicking at all or not. I just remember he was real stoic after the fact.

                    I don't see Shanks being the Usopp of his crew, though. If he had no Haki skills at all, I don't see him ending up a Yonkou in however-many years it would've been.

                      Yeah, One Piece was never meant to be this long but at the same time Shanks was never even meant to lose his arm.

                        kings haki users have better control over who they can knock out. so that doesn't work.

                          I was meaning the Ussop of Roger's crew. Though that would be more Buggy than him but you get the idea.

                          It hasn't been explained but sometime after Roger's death he and Buggy went their separate ways. In the time between that and meeting Luffy he got his own pirate crew.

                          Then in between the time of giving Luffy the strawhat and Luffy setting sail on his own, Shanks became a Yonko? Or was he a Yonko before meeting Luffy? Not sure on that part but it is harder to believe he was a Yonko during the time he met Luffy.

                                I mean, Morphy's favorite Asian comic book is Bleach, so he has no right to shit on my taste, roflmao.

                                      Ugh, Bleach was good, but it turned to shit, it turning to shit doesn't negate that it was good

                                      Chad, Kanonji and Tessai are still them boys

                                        It really is a shame that Tessai and kido in general just fell to the wayside.
