potential threat? I see it as potential allies….... with Luffy they might break the balance....... and the World Government will have to press the panic button.....
They've pretty much've been owned by all straw hat crew mmbers since the beggining of the series.
Cypher Pol 9.?
The Straw Hats owned them.
The Buster Call?
I think we've seen what effect it had on the Straw Hats.
An Ancient weapon?
What ancient weapon? They dont' have one to use. And if they do then they'd have done it already.
I see this as their only option. And this time they'd better send more then one. cause obviously one wasn't enough to take down luffy, and now that zoro owns mostly anything that gets in his way he can prally take one. Plus, to send one very powerful shichibukai to fight 8 very powerful Straw Hat crew members, especially when there pissed off, is not a smart idea. Hopefully the five old geasers see this.
Besides the Shichibukai, I see no other move they could possibly make. Unless there is an even greater weapon they have yet to use, But if they had sucha greater power, then wouldn't they have already use it on the 4 Emperors? Or maybe the did and it back fired, Thus making them the 4 Emperors, and also making them the 3rd now known power in the world.
I don't think the straw hat's will fight Jeimbi. Infact I think Jeimbi hated Arlong and for that he left and became a Shichibukai. And when thethe straw Hats meet Jeimbi, and they tell him that luffy defeated Arlong, Jeimbi'll laugh or something and say that that's great and instead of begining to fight with the crew, he'll befriend everyone and they'll all becoem good friends, and they'll tell each other about their dreams and jeimbi we'll maybe have met roger or something in the past and luffy'll get all excited and become glad that he met Jeimbi.
But, sadly, there can never be peace for too long a time in the life of Luffy.
And so after a few happy days with Jeimbi, suddenly BearMan and Flamingo show up, the make quick work of Jeimbi for going against the WG, and instead of killing off the straw hats, they leave, wanting them to follow them, maybe back to Mejoira?
And as soon as luffy has gathered all the info he needs about everything that just happend, Luffy'll make a captain decsision(and be cool yet again. :]), even though they all feel the same way, and then they'll go and follow the two shichibukai, knowing full well that it's most likely a trap. And they'll follow them to get revenge for Jeimbi and then when they get when they realize where they are, ethier Nami, Robin , Zoro, or maybe even Luffy him self will get an idea, and instead of fighting at marine headquaters they'll escape to the redlne and make to the second half of the grand line and then continue the fight with Flamingo and BearMan whom will probably follow them because the governemnt will say don't lose them or something.
Then, with not even forgetting about one singal thing what they did to Jeimbi, the straw hats, mainly Luffy I think will go balistic on their Shichibukai asses.
well that's my prediction off the top of my head.
