And not just extreme battles, luffy and usopp just faced extreme 'need to save someone fast'.

    With how present haki is in the story( it's like the df everyone has in nw), you would think Shs would talk about it from now and then, and not pretend it's not there.
    If there's no intention to take time out of the story to awaken it in the other Straw Hats, then there's no point in wasting panels with a vapid discussion about it

    Sure, the Straw Hats may have managed to unlock COA if they had a big toe to toe clash with Big Mom, but Oda decided to have them deal with her in another way.

    Didn't Luffy said something similar when he was fighting Rob Lucci? That is the general idea I got from this fight. Luffy needs to distract Katakuri until they have to escape or defeat him before then. The objective change because Luffy saw an opportunity and he still has several hours to spare.

    Mainly, if Luffy had that thought process with Rob, why not with Katakuri, do we need to see him say the same thing for both scenarios to carry the same consequences. Luffy is in middle of enemy territory, him not knowing what Katakuri is doing would be a risky move.

    I would compare what they did now, to Usopp's first encounter against Trebol and Sugar. We are missing the second part(shooting across the city - a serious fight) for any type of awakening.

    Maybe we should all spend more time looking at the drawings, and not just read the dialogues as fast as we can.

    I don't remember anything similar happening against Lucci, and honestly I didn't like the fight, so I'm not gonna read through it now. And even assuming it did, do we need Luffy to repeat it for it to be obvious? Yes, we need it. OP is a kids' story where almost everything is spelled out directly, so if something isn't (and it's not supposed to be a mystery/foreshadowing or easter egg), then it most likely wasn't the intention. Also, Oda writes his story thinking about people picking it up halfway through and not only long-term fans, if he felt need to explain something 10+ years ago, he'd do the same now, because he knows many of his readers don't know about the EL arc.

    I've never gotten the impression that Oda writes his story for people who have never read any preceding arc in the story.
