Re: One piece 690

I think Vergo should have DF power unless he is just a daft haki dude.

Re: One piece 690

First time I've seen an article from that site and most definitely the last. The author is a moron, the site he referenced is filled with retards and he got a thorough ass kicking in the comment section.

Oda doesn't hide the fact that he is a huge fan of western movies, actors and musicians. He pays homage to them here and there, shit just recently in a SBS he said that Sanji was inspired by Steve Buscemi.

Re: One piece 690

I agree with you but the last line is one of the main reasons I shared it..If I didn't see these picture comparisons I would never have been aware of the similarities...also it makes me appreciate his work even more so.

Edit: Good thing Sanji was inspired by the youthful Steve..if he was inspired by the current face of Steve Buscemi.....he would never get laid....

Re: One piece 690

By making absolute no mention of Franky being inspired by Ace Ventura, you know the author of that piece is a moron. And who says Franky, says myriads of characters that are shout-outs to Western fiction.

Re: One piece 690

Law said Vergo is Dfla's right hand man. Judging by his strength, we can conclude that Dfla crew ain't all that powerful (apart from Dfla himself). Luffy did take down 2 Shichibukais pre time-skip, and I'm guessing he can take all down now except Mihawk. This means we will still have to wait till BigMan fight to actually see the true extent to which the SH strength has risen.

I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)! I now walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!"

Right hand man doesn't necessarily means Vergo was his strongest subordinate. Vergo was essential to Dfla's underground operations due to his position in the navy, losing him is a huge blow to his black market empire.

I wonder, if Law crumbles the black market does that make him an enemy of Kid's alliance?

Further more many characters, arcs and other things in One Piece are based on some real life Pirates or other famous persons, incident, novels etc. Some of them include -->

Bartholomew Roberts---> Bartholomew Kuma
Edward Teach aka Blackbeard ---> Marshall D. Teach aka Blackbeard
William Kidd and Eustace the Monk ---> Eustace Kidd
John Hawkins and Basil Ringrose ---> Basil Hawkins
Edward Low (and his surname is probably referring to the Battle of Trafalgar) ---> Trafalgar Law
Sir Francis Drake ---> X Drake
Anne Bonny --> Bonney
Chui-Apoo ---> Scratchman Apoo
Alphonse "Al" Capone ---> Capone
Jean Lafitte ---> Lafitte (Blackbeard Pirates)
Henry Morgan --> Captain Morgan
Samuel Burgess --> Jesus Burgess (Blackbeard Pirates)
Zheng Zhilong (translation in japan means Tei Shiryu) ---> Shiryu of the Rain (Blackbeard Pirates)
Francisco Pizzaro ---> Avalo Pizarro (Blackbeard Pirates)
Daft Punk --> Killer
Red Legs Greaves ---> Zeff
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer ---> Chopper
Samuel Bellamy ---> Bellamy
Michael Jackson ---> Jango
Jean Bart ---> Jean Bart (Was formerly a slave and then joined Heart Pirates)

*Van Augur (Blackbeard Pirates) --> Van Augur bears a number of similarities to the character Adolphus from Terry Gilliam's film "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen". Adolphus is one of the eponymous Baron's henchmen, and has incredible eyesight and amazing shooting skills, able to detach an apple from a tree about 900 miles away. Van Augur's hat, glasses, hair, cape and rifle all contribute to this resemblance.

*Enel is based on Eminem (most of you must be knowing), an artist that Oda is fond of.

*Donflamingo is based on Jean Michel Polnareff. For some reason this artist is popular in Japan .
http://www.vinylmaniaque.com/pochett...-polnareff.jpg

*Sentomaru is basically lifted from popular depictions of Kintaro.


* The three Admirals Kuzan (Aokiji), Sakazuki (Akainu), Borsilano (Kizaru) are basically based on Yusaku Matsuda, Bunta Sugawara and Kunie Tanaka, all real life famous Japanese actors.

*Hogback from Thriller Bark --> Hogback is based on the Doctor Moro, who turned to genetically experimenting of animals to humans and on Frankenstain. Both of them were betrayed by their creations.

*Thriller Bark --> Oda is influenced by Tim Burton and his films some convincing example are Nin Gyoro and Bao, the servants of Moria very reminiscent of Lock Stock and Barrel on the homonym movie Nightmare before Christmas.


Nightmare before Christmas: Lock Stock and Barrel


Thriller Bark:Nin Gyoro and Bao


*Oars --> The zombie giant Oz is based in Óðr, a god of Norse mythology.The name Óðr, which means "overwhelmed" is probably tied to the same root from which comes the name of the god Odin. In common with Oars is that, like all ancient gods of the vikings, he enjoyed fighting. The significance of his name, "overwhelmed" can indicate the shadow of Luffy who was inside.

*Mariejois and Château de Chambord In Chambrod located in France have a common appearance.

*Crocodile is a mix of John Travolta and Steven Segal, both of who have achieved fame playing the opposing roles of Gangster and Cop

*Nico Robin, who worked with Crocilde, is based on Uma Thurman's character Mia Wallace. Travolta and Thurman both worked together in Pulp Fiction.

*Brook is obviously Jack Skellington, but there are also three famed musicians contributing to his look: Jimi Hendrix (Clothes+Fro) + Slash (Hat) + Ozzy Osbourne (Glasses).

Hope you find this interesting and a nice source of information. Would love if anyone has some more influences to share.
I don't remember any mangaka not referencing their inspirations.
That dude that wrote that shitty article is just being a phag.

Re: One piece 690

I was just thinking about the whole island slash.

Do you think it might be possible that Law just used his room and surrounded the whole island ? Using his haki would also allow him to cut Vergo and then he could just ove the buildings around due to being in his room.

I just think Vergo went down a little too fast. Plus it feels too early to be seeing this kinda feats, the whole island cutting. Dont get me wrong I would definately love to see it in the future but.

Re: One piece 690

Law did use room, right before Vergo charged. As for the power levels I've come around after the initial shock caused by Law's awesomeness. It makes sense as long as you don't put it against MF, because Oda himself said that MF was nothing but a side trip.

None of the top tiers fought seriously in that battle. WB did give it his all, but he was basically at death's door at that point and he still put on a good show. It is through BB that we will really see what the Old man was truly capable of which I'm willing to be will be insane.

Let's take Aokiji vs Akainu into account. These two changed the climate around their battle field which several km in diameter for years, the amount of energy required to pull something like that is ridiculous. The SN have risen to challenge that kind of power, so what Law did which is more than likely a high end feat for now makes sense. I won't be surprised if Luffy can do the same, we only saw him injured and under water.
