    They were hardly fights, especially Inu vs. Shutenmaru. If you want to speculate based on an actual fight, Jack fighting Inu and Neko for five days straight would be more appropriate.

I understand that Inu and Neko are very strong allies, I just feel that narratively the only ally that carries equal wait is Jinbe - and that's only if you're one of those hold-out types. Carrot, Kine'mon, Bart, and Cavendish would be next in line, to me, just due to their long stints of traveling with the SHs for the first two and for their strong screen presence and battle scenes for the latter two.

    That said, I repeat: viewing Inu and Neko as major allies is a very valid way to look at it, and may even be objectively correct.
    They had equal standing with Luffy, Law, and Kinemon/Momo as they formed an alliance, lead their own respective groups, and have the same ties to Oden as Kin'emon, so yea, it's as close as it can be to being objectively correct

    Also as far as the narrative goes, they have more of a reason to be here than Law tbh.

    I simply assumed Oda has to barf the big reveals allover the floor now, with so little time and so many stories left to tell. But I like your take. It's too awfully convenient for my taste to praise it, but it seems likely that this was his idea.

    Can you imagine the Gorousei/Cpt. Brandnew arguing about BB's bounty?
    Brandnew:"Let's just make it 2.25billion!"
    Gorousei:"No, no, no, no, we want the precise number of 2billion, 247million and 600thousand Berry!"

    Cool chapter! I'm glad I didn't spoil this week although there was a break. I'm trying to keep it that way for the next acts of Wano.
    Moria isn't slim :( and King's design seems "recycled" to me.
    Everything else seems fine to me. Shiryu with Absa's df doesn't really give him an advantage against Zoro,
    but maybe he can "put out" his aura, so he is really invisible to Zoro.

    Straight from the One Piece Wiki:
    - Teach's namesake, Edward Teach, had a bounty of £100 in 1716. This roughly equals 2,247,600 yen in the present day, meaning Blackbeard's bounty matches up with his namesake's.

    A pretty cool minor detail

    Sure they are/do. I guess I just mean, in the story overall that Law seems to be the more important character. I totally don't want to argue though. You're plenty right.

    That's a cool fact though and a nice nod to the real blackbeard.

    Anyway, dogstorm vs shuten maru proofs that dogstorm can just solo jack in sulong mode, both catviper and dogstorm would be wway too much.
    I donít like the idea of Queen vs Sanji and King vs Zoro either.

    Luffyís Alliance potentially already have 8 people in the ~500mil bounty range in terms of firepower, more if we included all potential supernovas becoming allies, and every single one of them in theory should be able to at least stall a Calamity. Beasts Pirate commanders are currently outgunned three-to-one, they couldnít afford to lose in 1v1 matches.

    I think I have an idea as to why Queen is "The Plague." He seems to be in charge of the weapon factories that are poisoning the people of Wano, thus making him like a plague. It also thematically works as another reason for Sanji (chef that's all about feeding people) to be the one to bring him down.

    Personally I would prefer that. Oda says bounties ≠ powerlevels, which I agree with, but it does give us a clue of where Luffy should be at; I think saying he's 3/4th the way to a yonkou status isn't too absurd. So the rest of the crew should be there in terms of comparable yonkou crew mates. To that end Sanji + Zoro needs to be at the level of Queen/King soon (or now if Oda plans on Luffy beating Kaido)

    If Oda sticks w/ the schedule they have 2 weeks to level up.

    I think that Jinbei, Sanji and Zoro will face off against Jack, Queen and King, respectively, but as the leader of a mini-squad. Like, maybe Shishillian with Jinbei, Wanda with Sanji and Kin'emon with Zoro, for example.

    it would require Jinbe to be present.
    but yeah, while I do totally see Sanji/Queen, Zoro/King, I can also see them getting a bit of help, specially now that they dont seem as menacing as I pictured on my mind, tbh Jack would make me lose my shit with his looks while the other two would make me laugh at best.

    Oh he most certainly HAS to barf out these big plot reveals and advancements now. That's what I'm saying, he can no longer have little self-contained arcs like Alabasta or Thriller Bark anymore; he has no choice. He's just gonna have to be creative and think on his feet, like these 4th wall breaking "breaks."

    Hopefully she'll show up before the arc ends and will interact with Kaido. I think they will.

    The problem with that happening in the current arc, is that there are too many heavy hitters in Luffy’s Alliance and potential allies. Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, Law, Shutenmaru, Kiku, Inuarashi, and Nekomamushi. (for the future we could also add in Kid, Hawkins, and Drake.)

    This is not like WCI where Urouge could take down Snack and Luffy/Nami could take down Cracker, yet BM pirates (excluding Big Mom herself) still have enough firepower to easily overwhelm the Firetank/Fishmen/Germa/SH Alliance with relative ease. Currently in Wano arc, if King and Queen went down there would be nobody holding the Beast Pirates up except Kaido himself. To see it from the arc antagonists perspective, as of now King and Queen really cannot afford to go down that easily.

    We haven't seen Kaido's full crew yet, there is just no way that the next strongest after Jack is someone like Holdem, who doesn't even have a real devil fruit. We have only seen one guy(Kyoshiro) from Orochi's side so far. Also we don't know yet who exactly will fight Kaido himself.

    Orochi's right hand men & personal guards have to pack a punch/sword just for all the hype that was build up for the Wano samurais. If a fat outlaw can be on par with Jack, i really imagine that Orochi's samurais are quite impressive.

    Also yeah, we still have Apoo that we can't be sure he will take Luffy's side straight away, Killer (although after Kidd's release he will get on board), X drake, Scotch (that took down X Drake iirc) & probably each of of King and Queen have their own "Holdem" that could prove to be much stronger that the PelvisLion himself.
