    Default The Blackbeard Battle

    I remembered there was an old thread on this, but I couldn't find it, so heres a new one. Mostly it's just some speculation I've got regarding the fighting styles of the various blackbeard pirates, and how the match-ups might work. Oh, and please forgive me if I can't remember all the names off the top of my head.

    Luffy VS Blackbeard: Don't know his fighting style from adam, at this point, but blackbeard may have an as of yet unrevealed DF power. I hope not though, personally I'd like it if he whipped out some kind of weapon that could damage luffy (or knows some kind of martial art.)

    Van Auger VS. Usopp: I think this will be the first battle, and that the two will never come within five hundred feet of each other. I picture various specialty projectiles whizzing through the air over some town.

    Wrestler Dude: Not, at this point, certain who he will fight. As the first mate Zoro seems the logical choice, but as a grappling specialist Sanji springs to mind as well. However I say he fights Zoro, and puts up a bretty good fight, because another matchup I'm predicting is

    Sanji VS. Creepy Messenger Dude: His elongated limbs and carnival clown acrobatic actions make him look like a good nad to hand fighter all on his own; a perfect opponent for sanji.

    Finally, Dr. Death VS Chopper: I predict Dr. Death will deal heavil in pills, for both himself and his horse. Their intense physical weakness will turn out to bne a strength in disguise or, and this is my favorite theory, he's weak because he tested earlier, failed versions of his power enhancers on himself.

    The problem, of course, is that we've only met those five blackbeard pirates. maybe the rest of the crew will be indisposed, or maybe Blackbeard has other crewmembers we've not yet met.

    My theory is that Franky will fight Jesus Burgess, and Zoro will sit out on the fight (he never has skipped a battle before, but since Sanji sat out on a fight in skypiea but helped them a bit I think Zoro will do something similar soon) or that more members join the Blackbeards.

    BlackBeard vs. Luffy : A captians battle.

    Laffite vs. Zoro : A sword could be concealed in the cane. But the tap-dancing makes him a possible opponent for Sanji in my eyes.

    Jesus Burgess vs. Sanji : It just seems to fit. Perhas Franky can fight him.

    Van Auger vs. Usopp: super-sniper battle FTW.

    Dr.Death vs. Chopper: doctor against........chioropractor

    Before SH there were only 5 Sh, and more came. Just as more BB pirates will come.

    I too agree that Franky will fight Jesus Burgess, or maybe Sanji who could also fight Laffite. maybe by the time the strawhats meet blackbeard again they'll have a swordsman. other than that all the fights seem pretty ovious

    Here's what it'll initially be:

    Luffy Vs. Blackbeard
    Sanji Vs. Lafitte
    Chopper Vs. Doc Q
    Franky Vs. Jesus Burgess
    Usopp Vs. Van Auger

    Then Ace, Smoker and Tashigi will appear mid-battle and things will get mixed up.

    Then we have:

    Ace Vs. Blackbeard
    Sanji Vs. Lafitte
    Luffy Vs. Jesus Burgess
    Zoro Vs. Tashigi
    Franky Vs. Smoker
    Nami Vs. Doc Q

    My guess is that Usopp will have already beaten Van Auger, and Chopper will have been knocked out.
    I called it wrong, so long ago. I guess this needs to be changed.

    im very curious, why would franky and Smoker fight? i was thinking maybe Luffy and Smoker IF that was to happen

    Cause Luffy doesn't have any way of beating Smoker, really. Plus, Franky and Smoker sort of remind me of each other, for some reason. They're both strong men who have a sense of justice. Smoker realized that the World Government was corrupt from the start; Franky, too, hates the corrupt WG. Plus, Coup de Vent would be a possible way to beat Smoker, possibly with a Wind Dial attached. Since Franky's already a Cyborg, I don't think he'd have a problem using a dial on himself. Luffy, Sanji and Zoro would never use some sort of enhancement like that to beat someone.

    Besdies, Jesus Burgess seems like a brute strength guy. Luffy is a brute strength guy, too. Franky is a brute strength guy as well, but he also uses gadgets. So Luffy is more suited to fight Burgess if Ace shows up (Luffy would defer to Ace, obviously.)

    But blackbeard is a brute strength guy too.

    I think Usopp and Van Auger will battle it out while the SH's are still approaching the island where the rest of the battles take place.

    yeah but Ace is looking to get blackbeard, so its possible Ace will punk luffy out of fighting him, and Luffy will let him fight him due to certain reasons

    I think the matchups will go like this:

    Blackbeard vs. Luffy: obvious

    Jesus Burgess vs. Sanji: battle between unarmed combatants

    Van Auger vs. Usopp: battle between snipers

    Doc Q vs. Zoro: battle between swordsmen. The item strapped to Doc Q's back looks like it may be a large sword.

    So what we have here then would be the top 4 (probably) Bleackbeard pirates vs. the top 4 (top tier) Straw Hat pirates.

    I like that you rate Usopp as "top tier."

    Frankly, I'm hoping for it to turn out that Blackbeard's crew is much larger, so everybody gets a fight. (What can I say, I'm a fan of fight scenes.)

    Yep. I stand by the theory that Usopp will get an awesome 'upgrade' this arc ("Lord of Destruction" anyone?), and that he'll officially join the Straw Hats by arcs end as one of the top tier fighters.

    it would be nice to see Chopper Fight, seeing that what he could do ( cant remmeber the manga issue of the transformation), but im really looking forward to Usopp

    The Ace vs. BB/ Luffy vs. BB has me a bit worried. Brothers tend to fight over the stupidest things, and for some odd reason I can see "who K.O.'s BB" one of those. Say for example Luffy and co. run into them and a huge fight ensues, chaces are the fight will drag out a bit seeing as how BB doesn't strike me as a weak man, and Ace gets wind of it. Ace wants to show his worth to Whitebeard, and will want to finish BB off himself. Ace shows up and tells Luffy to "Back off this one is mine." Luffy refuses as BB has probably enraged Luffy somehow by harming a crew member or one of the new friends they meet along the way. They butt heads and Luffy starts getting violent as he's still technically in battle mode and starts to Push Ace around. A battle breaks out, allowing a critically injured BB to get away.

    Granted the likely-hood of that happening is one out of some ridiculously high number. Luffy has more sense than that; it would not only give for some spectacular fight scenes (Ace realizing just how much Luffy has grown in the GL fighting wise, still can't see Luffy winning though.) but also for a very interesting plot twist (Straw Hats attacking one of the Whitebeards breeds a pirate war.) I guess a man can dream at least.

    As far as the rest of the crew's match up's will be I kinda see it as one of those up in the air type of things. When CP9 was first introduced I never suspected Nami to kick the ever loving crap out of one of them, and neither did I expect Sanji to actually lose a fight. It seemed like the only two definate fights were Kaku vs. Zoro and Luffy vs. Lucci. Everyone else seemed to change partners a lot.

    I've often thought about this fight and to me I can forsee this being a distant fight quite later in the series. I'm still of the opinion that Luffy may be related to Blackbeard but I wont start that here.

    I agree with all of the matchups listed above me but the thing I would love to see the most is a mixup. Let me explain. (This is based on memory) Zoro always fights swordmen and Sanji always fights I guess you could call it brawlers? Nami always fights the woman etc etc. How about a complete mix up of opponents sort of like how the original CP9 opponents looked. Like maybe have Zoro vs Dr Q or something crazy like that.

    Even though I'm not a huge Usopp fan besides maaaybe a Usopp vs Yasopp fight the one fight I want to see is Usopp vs Van Auger. This to me would be one of the most tense battles. (Enemy at the Gates anyone?) I could see it being a few hours long stand off using every possible advantage and really test Usopps training. If and when Oda does this fight I will be on the edge of my seat. In fact besides Lafitte I really don't have much of an interest in the Blackbeard crew (of course besides Van Auger). So we will have to see how this goes.

    Really? I love blackbeard. He looks like my dad and acts like my uncle. (figure THAT one out, people.) What he really is is very Luffy-ish. Plus, the man took down Big Knife Sarquis with hs FACE. Admitedly Sarquis was a small fry pansy, but only badass people win fights with their faces. Commonly known fact.

    I don't dislike Blackbeard but what I can say is his crew just seems sorta...I dunno I cant find the word. They just don't super appeal to me. Its similar to the Skypeia Arc the villians were cool just...I dunno not my style. When it comes to anime im semi-picky. I always like the non-main characters more and I like the villians that are truely twisted and unique. Even better are the sociopaths like Spandam and the cold hearted ones like Lucci. Mind you I'm a Psychiatry Student so this is kinda my style to be interested in the truely twisted ones.

    Hmmm...I don't think that Luffy will ever fight the BB's captain because he met his brother in albasta who told him that he has to defeat him.I think it will be similar to what happens in Jaya with bellamy.He will refuse to fight.
    However I don't know if he will authorize his crew members to fight the BB.

    Luffy is a LUCKY person so instead of Ace interupting the "captain's battle" what about Ace meeting Luffy in the GL and a few days later meeting the BB?It will solve the problem lol.

    Furthermore, why are you thinking that Franky will join the straw hat crew?It possible but we don't know it for sure.Tom built a ship to Gol D Roger so why Franky could just build a new ship to Luffy?I am not saying that I don't want him to join the crew, it will be fun, but on my point of vue you are talking about that as if it was for sure ^^
