Sir Crocodile and Teach talking to each other is so epic. The whole comeback of croc is satisfying as hell. Oda needs to get the shadow of defeat away from Moria too and all members of the Shichibukai have their renaissance.
(I don't see Teach as a member of the Shichibukai, if they still exist after this freak show, i believe Crocodile will get back to his place)
blackbeard is colour, not animal = yonkou. he'll get WB's seat in due time.
wonder if awakened means the zoan users end up staying in that form forever but get an extra power boost. if that is the case chopper might find a way to enter that awakened state but be able to revert back into his usual self. maybe monster chopper is his awakened form but it's not stable?
i don't think we have ever seen blackbeard get truly serious and i'm counting the ace fight. for the most part he was only showing off his df to ace and decided to end things. i think serious blackbeard is way more powerful than what we have seen and who knows if he also can use haki. if blackbeard was truly serious he would of probably took out his gun and shot luffy in the head while he threw him down and his df were gone.
don't missunderstand me i'm not playing BB for low, i see him as the final villian in the entire series (hence nemesis), it's just that the spoilers proclaimed more or less, that luffy was taken out by BB in that one groundpounding and that's what i wanted to point out and luffy is still pretty fine after that throw, so he's not as monster as proclaimed.
we sure haven't seen the extent or BBs power, there is no doubt about that. the fighting parts that took ace to his knees were even taken out.
and chopper might find a way to avoid that zoan awakening state being permanent with one of his drugs (maybe we'll get a different name than 'rumble ball' then). that state being permanent would explain why the beast guards hate human so much and why they are totally ruthless… cause they can't revert to their former human state anymore -poor things.
