one piece - Why is Shanks a Yonko? - Anime & Manga Stack Exchange
No spoilers aside from the episode number or a close by one. in animation from to now, and 3 I want to see Luffy meet Shanks again!. I think we can all agree that we haven't seen enough of Shanks powers. When we first saw him with Luffy (in the first episode) and we see. They still have yet to meet each other face to face since Luffy was a kid, but Luffy restated his interest in seeing Shanks again in the New World after departing.
He was a party animal unlike any other, and Luffy had clearly picked up a few traits from him, although he was more focused on the part about eating. Put together, their free-spiritedness was, indeed, more than enough to get the rest of them to that mood and to worry about tomorrow.
But it all ended as quickly as it had started, if not even more so. Not because of the Marines, but rather because of something Luffy did: You're one of the finest pirates I have ever had the pleasure to meet.
But that hat is yours now: In any reasonable pirate crew, between any two level-headed pirates, it would have stopped right there and then. Luffy would have put his hat back on, smiled, and they would have returned to partying. Unfortunately, these two were not anything of that sort: And so Luffy did not put his hat back on, but rather continue on offering it for Shanks. I can't just keep this thing now, not anymore.
Just forget about it. They kept it up for a little longer after which Luffy, having had enough, simply tried to place the hat on the red-haired pirate captain's head.
The younger pirate instinctively punched, which Shanks kicked aside, along with the rest of him. And then, the next thing Luffy did with his straw hat was, quite possibly, the worst thing he could ever have done with it in Nami's mind: They most certainly were not. Shanks slowly drew his blade and pointed it at Luffy, who charged at him, flexing his muscle to get the blood flowing much faster, painting him red and smoking, prepared for the battle.
When the two clashed, the very ground of the island shook under them all, not that the two would have noticed that. It was a cloudy day, yet in an instant every single one of them was cleared out of the sky, displaying the evening sun well, bathing the battlefield in golden light.
As a fist was barely blocked by a sword, the shockwave sent many trees behind them flying. As the blade's counter-attack was dodged by the length of a hair, the jungle was cut apart in a single neat stroke. And so begun the incident that would be later known as the War for That Bloody Hat. The picking up of the winds could be felt all the way at Smoker's ship, and he could see trees being levelled, smoke cloud rising, and flocks of birds fleeing from whatever was going on.
Nobody had seen what had struck it, although it rather looked like something had stretched very, very thin and far from the island, before being snapped back. Other than those particulars, the rest took immediate action, leaving the two idiots to deal with their thing for a while in order to defend themselves, and their friends, from a common enemy.
Even as the battle raged around them, Luffy and Shanks could not really afford to pay any attention to any of it. Considering their respective levels of power, even the slightest drop of concentration could very well have deadly results: They were almost equal in terms of combat ability.
The Red-Hair was, of course, of the Pirate King's original crew, and worthy of every bit of fame that position had brought him. But the Straw-Hat had come a long way since their last meeting: Neither could get an edge over the other. The Blackbeard Pirates, having acquired several notorious criminals from the lowest level of Impel Down, then make their appearance, with Blackbeard having come to witness Whitebeard's death.
Blackbeard uses his Dark Dark powers to cancel out Whitebeard's Devil Fruit powers, but Whitebeard gains the upper hand, only to be attacked and mortally wounded by the rest of Blackbeard's crew. Whitebeard tells Blackbeard that he will not be the one to find One Piece, and reveals that Ace may have died, but others with the Will of D have inherited Roger's will, and that One Piece is real.
Whitebeard dies standing up, with hundreds of wounds on his body, but not a single one on his back. Blackbeard's Plot is Revealed!
The Whitebeard Pirates attempt to flee, but Akainu, having survived Whitebeard's assault, emerges in front of Jimbei. Jimbei, having grown to like Luffy, refuses to hand him over, and Iva, Inazuma and a few of the Whitebeard Pirates arrive to assist him as Hancock holds off the Pacifistas. Meanwhile, Blackbeard throws a cloth over himself and Whitebeard's body, and emerges with the ability to use his and Whitebeard's Devil Fruit powers. As those assembled watch in horror, he declares that his era has begun.
Lava Fists Pummel Luffy! The Marines continue to pursue and kill the retreating Whitebeard Pirates, and Coby begins hearing the combatants' voices in his head.
Akainu defeats Inazuma and Iva, then chases down Jimbei and punches through his chest, severely injuring both him and Luffy.
The two fall to the ice below, but Crocodile attacks Akainu and launches Luffy into the air, where Buggy catches him. Crocodile and Whitebeard's division commanders fight Akainu to cover Luffy's escape. Just as Buggy desperately tries to escape, Trafalgar Law arrives in his submarine. Law says that Luffy will become his enemy one day, but as that is a worthwhile relationship, he will give him medical treatment. Kizaru attacks in an attempt to prevent Law from escaping with Luffy and Jimbei.
Coby, having developed the ability to sense the voices of those fighting, becomes overwhelmed by all the violence, and screams that fighting is unnecessary and only risks the lives of many soldiers who have families. Akainu tries to kill him, but Red-Haired Shanks arrives, blocks his attack and reveals that he has come to end the war. The War of the Best is Finally Over!
Law's submarine barely escapes from Aokiji and Kizaru's attacks, and Kizaru declares that they will have to give up if that did not kill Luffy. Hancock requisitions a Marine ship to go after Luffy out of concern for him. Shanks convinces the Marines, the Whitebeard Pirates and the Blackbeard Pirates to stand down by saying that fighting will only lead to more casualties, and declaring that he will fight those who still wish to do so.
All those involved comply, and the war ends. Heralding the "New Era"! Meanwhile, in Marineford, Sengoku is being told that Blackbeard released the Impel Down inmates to join his crew earlier. Sengoku is enraged by Blackbeard and the World Government, which doesn't want to see its reputation being damaged any more and therefore orders to withhold the news that more prisoners from Level 6 have escaped from Impel Down.
In the sea, Law's submarine surfaces near a Marine ship with Hancock on board. Law tells her that even though Luffy has been stabilized, he also suffered severe injuries from the battle. Ivankov and the Newkamas reveal that Luffy could not stand up in Impel Down because of his condition at that time.
Ivankov also says that Luffy pushed himself to save Ace, much to Hancock's sadness. Jimbei, now partially recovered, appears despite being told to rest.
Jimbei tells everyone that he cannot stop worrying once Luffy wakes up. Hancock orders Law's crew to call the Kuja's ship and return to Amazon Lily. Meanwhile, the Kuja's pirate ship arrives and escorts Law and his crew to the Maiden Island.
