HOW BLACKBEARD PIRATES STEAL DEVIL FRUITS

Watching OP anime episode 740, I remembered that Jesus Burgess jumps around (this guy doesn’t know how to walk) with some sort of devil fruit bag, or maybe just an ordinary bag but with some pattern reference to devil fruits. Kind of obvious but this is probably where he stores his stolen devil fruits. 
[​IMG]It is no secret that the Blackbeard pirates are on a mission to gather devil fruits, thus why Burgess was even on Dressrosa in the first place – in order to gain the Mera Mera no Mi; and Blackbeard himself has shown knowledge of how to steal a devil fruit when he did the unthinkable and murdered a nakama when serving under Whitebeard all those years ago. 
[​IMG] Now it hasn’t been confirmed whether Blackbeard had to kill in order to gain the fruit, but this seems the most likely scenario. Devil fruits reappear from a nearby fruit when the current user dies, as we discovered on Punk Hazard or wherever the hell we discovered this. 
[​IMG] 
This is probably why Burgess had his knife out when trying to kill Luffy in one quick action, and this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this referenced with Blackbeard associates.

Now this is where the bag comes into play. That bag that we see again in the above photo is most probably full of normal fruit, maybe apples (i believe), although I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a mix or maybe even cherries as a reference to Blackbeard himself (he loves cherry pies). I believe it’s full of apples, so that as soon as a devil fruit using target is neutralised, their fruit will reappear into the nearest fruit which would obviously be in the bag. We saw this in punk hazard.
[​IMG]Fairly straightforward. In order to steal devil fruits, Blackbeard Pirates galavant (in Burgess’ case, hunt) with a bag full of apples/some other fruit in order to capture devil fruits. This sparked something that I didn’t notice before… Doc Q was doing the same thing way before the timeskip, as he offered Luffy an apple and said he was ‘lucky’ because he chose a fruit that didn’t make him explode.[​IMG]Why else would Doc Q, a member of the Blackbeard Pirates randomly have a basket full of apples? This may be his own tactic of stealing devil fruits as opposed to Burgess’ more animalistic manor. Anywho… What happens when a devil fruit user consumes another devil fruit? Yes, he/she explodes, and I think that is what Doc Q was referring to when he said Luffy was lucky not to explode.Pretty simples, BB pirates have different methods of killing devil fruit users in order to steal their fruits via having a multitude of apples/other fruit in a nearby bag or basket. Anyway like I said I’m not sure if anyone noticed these Doc Q or Burgess details before so I thought I’d just leave this here.

Some common mistakes about Kuina and Koshiro

You may know that there are some common theories about Kuina, which may seem plausible on the one hand, because they starts from something what highlights in the manga, but on the other hand they continues with making up outlandish scenario up to the final of One Piece. But guys, would Oda leave clues for us for so many years so we could write the whole story instead of him? But not only a trend for writing our own fiction is a problem. There are some delusions in that common interpretations of clues that Oda gave us. I even think that it may be Oda’s masterplan to mislead us and then get greater effect by destroying our expectations.

So the first thing I wanted to consider is one page from 589th chapter, which gave us theories about Kuina being in Revolutionary Army at the moment or a shogun in Wano. It’s a pretty big coincidence that we have Ivankov, who can change people’s gender, and Kuina, who can’t accept that she was born a girl, in the same place at the same time. This coincidence is so interesting that people turn blind eye to the dialog of Dragon and Iva and don’t see that Iva was too hurry to take care of a stranger girl. [​IMG]
But that’s not all; there is a thing that destroys the possibility of Kuina being taken on board that night. In case she was on the board, it should be the night when she won a 2001 fight with Zoro and died. And it’s not the same night. Look at the phase of the moon. [​IMG]

Also, there are too much attention on a moon in 5th chapter

Next thing I want to consider is a myth of Koshiro being a bad guy who killed his daughter.

– The first reason of this myth to exist is that some people rely on anime version of Zoro’s flashback, where Koshiro represented as a suspicious man, but it differs from manga. There is a whole episode about Zoro’s past against 7 pages about it in the manga, so they had enough timing to put non-canon scenes about Koshiro.

– Even if you rely only on manga, you can say that Koshiro has no reaction to Kuina’s death so people still can say that it makes him suspicious, but let me remind you that it’s a quick flashback which shows us only Zoro’s point of view and the main thing in this flashback is Kuina’s death. There’s no need to show Koshiro a lot, because the flashback should explain Zoro’s motivation in this situation.
[​IMG]
-Some people rely only on Zoro’s flashback when talking about Koshiro and forget to check other scenes with him. And we have this one from chapter 440, and we can see in Koshiro’s inner monologue that he has a mind-set of a good man.
[​IMG]
-Also, returning to 589th chapter, it’s an act of a kind man to help Rev Army with provision.
[​IMG]
This scene may be interpreted in different ways depending on a translation. So somebody believes that Koshiro is involved in Rev Army. I personally prefer this translation; it precludes the possibility of Koshiro being a revolutionary.

Then you will ask: if the information given in this page of 589th chapter prevents the possibility of Kuina being taken on board of Rev Army’s ship and Koshiro being connected with Rev Army, why Oda focused our attention on Shimotsuki village? I believe that we initially don’t have the information that will allow us to see a full picture of what Oda is planning on this.

Zoro? Is that you? :D

It uses 3 swords style technique and it got lost 😀 I guess there’s no cure for those that use Santoryu! XD

One Piece「AMV」- History

Shiki Devil Fruit Powers

Shiki ate the Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, a Paramecia type Devil Fruit which allows him to make surrounding non-living matter levitate once he has come in contact with it.Shiki states that once he makes something float it will stay that way until he himself undoes it or he loses consciousness. He has been shown to make several Marine vessels and even vast island areas float.

He seems to have mastered the use of this fruit, as he has shown a variety of skills which manipulates the surrounding non-living environment in complicated ways, even manipulating it from its simplest components, such as earth’s fragments and snow flakes being used to build up gigantic, elaborate structures that are then used to attack for a variety of purposes.

ioyt

When attacking, Shiki uses the surrounding environment against his enemies, shaping earth or snow into giant lion heads and launching them towards his foes, or even making water float to drown his opponents in it. As stated, his powers are unable to be used on any living matter other than himself, meaning he cannot touch another person, animal, or plant and make them levitate.

He also possesses great skills as a swordsman and was able to kill a mountain of Marines before getting captured.

After the two swords became his new legs, Shiki is also capable of attacking from a distance with them, by sending slashes from his sword legs in a Rankyaku like fashion. These air-blades have a light-yellow/gold color-scheme, matching his epithet.

iuyh

He also combines his sword skills with his Fuwa Fuwa no Mi, such as slashing open a body of water and then levitating it to drown his opponents. He fended off all the slashes from Zoro’s Nanajuni Pound Ho with great speed and reflexes, and later another attack from Zoro’s was countered in mid-air and he knocked Zoro back down to the ground with great force. He was also able to fight on par against Roger, and later, it took both Garp and Sengoku in their prime to capture him alive.
