So...any chance Luffy will become Yonkou? There's bound to be an empty position one way or another.
Wishing for a third Negima anime adaptation truthful to the manga with the arcs that were scrapped >:
There's nothing saying that Luffy can't become an Yonkou before becoming the Pirate King.
It would be wrong. They don't have the strongest crew, not even remotely close. Though Luffy certainly does have the allies i.e The Whitebeard Pirates and all the NW Pirates that were allied to Whitebeard - he certainly earned their respect, and there
Defeating one of the emperors should automatically mean that you become the new one. Although the Strawhats might not defeat all of the emperors, they're bound to face at least one of them. So I think Luffy becoming an emperor isn't too far off. Besides, Luffy's definition of an emperor is probably not the same as other people's.
Well said. So he will obtain it if he defeats an emperor/empress and as it was said, his definition of emperor will differ from the others. He has the allies and the crew to reach that position but it will take time before he gets there.
It took the WG + the warlords to take on WB, his crew and allies. So if Luffy wants to go up against even one of the emperors he better bring some heat.
Yonkou are more about territory and sheer number of followers than individual crew member strength.
So considering his reletively small crew I think he will just become the King.
Also remember what he said to Raleigh that he doesn't care about conquering anything, but that is what they do.
I'm sure blackbeards goal was to become yonkou, he didnt take over whitebeards territory not expecting to become an emperor.
Basically if luffy becomes yonkou that would mean he made an effort to become one and that's just not something luffy would do.
I don't think taking down a yonkou makes you jump to the position, bad match ups happen even at elite levels. Oda stated Enel would've had a 500,000,000 bounty if he was on the blue seas, yet luffy was nowhere near that level at skypiea. That's the point of having this whole fight vs a yonkou/making an alliance is about, they can't use Luffy's blatant charging against someone greatly above their level. I've been wondering why Law wants to take down a yonkou though, he said "confusion", but it's not like he'll run in and find one piece because of some confusion. Even if he did, he'd walk out of raftel all "I'm the pirate king" only to be murdered by blackbeard or some other overpowered SoB out there.
Veni, Vidi, Vici.
You don't become an Emperor for simply beating another one. The only reason they have that title is becuase they control such large portions of the New World, and that is because they have such influence and that is because of their strength.
Somebody could kill every one of the 4 Emperors. Does that make him an Emperor? No, all it would do is create a power vaccume for control for territory.
