Ok, hear me out here, and if there has been a topic about this before, please feel free to delete/lock this.
I was gonna wait for the next enemy to try and confirm this theory, but I am really impatient.
Now, so after Luffy entered the Grand Line, the MAIN enemies that he's fought in each arc have been at least partly based (not exactly based, but resemble) on the seven deadly sins in my opinion.
Wapol (I count him as a main villain/antagonist, since it was the arc they got a crewmate)
Pretty self-expanatory I think.
- Greed (or lust)
The article I read said greed is associated with deliberate betrayal or treason, especially for personal gain, for example through bribery. Scavenging and hoarding of materials or objects, theft and robbery, especially by means of violence, trickery, or manipulation of authority are all actions that may be inspired by greed.
It all sounds like Croc to me.
He could also be lust, as lust doesn't have to be about love just as gluttony doesn't have to be about food. He has a lust for power.
- Envy (could also be greed)
Okay, you have to look kinda deep for this one, cause he's not envious of someone, but still attributes other aspects envy. Cause, like greed, envy is associated with an insatiable desire, but instead of material goods, it's more general. That is similar to his want to go to the moon. He could also be lust, as he has a lust for vearth and the moon, but that's kinda iffy.
He had great pride in his abilities and his crew and got all emo when someone insulted him.
Well, the guy was merciless and killed people for being weak. Then there was his whole go from calm to bloodthirsty in a fight thing.
Now that i look back over it, i can just change Croc to lust and Eneru to greed, but i am just going to leave it as is.
So now, in order for my theory to be confirmed, the next main enemy luffy fights will have to be envious in some way.
So what do you think? Please don't be too harsh.
