Shanks and Buggy served on Roger’s Crew since their childhood and constantly fought against each other. Ironically, in their youth, Buggy accused Shanks for being too naive and innocent to one day become a pirate, but Shanks is a great pirate today while Buggy and his crew pale in comparison. Due to Shanks’ sudden but accidental actions, Buggy lost a treasure map and ate the Bara Bara no Mi by mistake, which rendered him unable to swim. Buggy has developed a certain grudge since then.
However, despite their constant bickering, Shanks didn’t hesitate to save Buggy after he nearly drowned, meaning that Shanks at least considers Buggy his friend, even if it’s not reciprocated. Shanks also cared for him after he fell ill while the rest of the crew were traveling to Laugh Tale, and later wished Buggy to be part of his crew. Neither Buggy nor Shanks have visited Laugh Tale. It remains to be seen whether they will be able to keep their childhood promise to visit this island.

When she learns that Moria is alive two years later, Perona is overjoyed, and she quickly leaves Mihawk’s castle to find him.

shanks and luffy

Luffy admires Shanks, who is his role model, the hero of his childhood and the man he wants to surpass.
As the ultimate expression of this admiration, Shanks entrusted Luffy with his signature straw hat, which has extreme sentimental value to Shanks (since it belonged to his former captain Gol D. Roger). The pair agreed that Luffy would return the hat to him when he became a Great Pirate, a promise they both took very seriously.. Luffy defends the Straw Hat at the risk of his life, and upon arriving at Marineford, Shanks was not ready to accept the Hat’s return.
Luffy said that although Shanks is his idol, he had better bring him down too, because the red-haired man is one of the Four Emperors and therefore prevents him from becoming the Pirate King.
After Luffy defeated Kaido and was declared one of the Four Emperors, Shanks looked at the newspaper declaring Luffy’s victory, with a look of pride. before reminiscing about his past with Luffy and how Luffy ended up eating the Gomu Gomu no Mi.

Seconds before her death, Saul told Robin that she would find friends who would protect her and live with her one day.

bonney and kuma

Bonney’s father is Bartholomew Kuma, the former king of Sorbet Kingdom turned revolutionary then Shichibukai. Their relationship is very positive and affectionate, with Bonney remembering the love her father gave her during her childhood. She is very outraged by the World Government who turned her father into a cyborg, then enslaved him and left him to suffer mistreatment at the hands of the World Nobles. This is further accentuated by the fact that she traveled to Vegapunk’s island base, Egghead, to ask him about Kuma’s transformation. Kuma is the only family left in Bonney, as she defended a Pacifista unit that resembles her father against Luffy, despite trying to kill them. She also defended her father’s true personality when people bring up his reputation as a bully.
If Vegapunk manages to restore Kuma’s original spirit to his original body, then Bonney can finally find his father!


brook and laboon

More than fifty years ago, Laboon encountered the Rumbar Pirates after getting lost and separated from his pod and started following them in his solitude. After a while, they noticed that he looked sad and they comforted him by singing, so he continued to follow them. The crew got attached to him because he was “cute”. Eventually, when giving him bait, Brook named him “Laboon”. He was accepted as a member of the crew and even helped them when an attack left a few crew members falling overboard and no one else could help them.

Brook cares a lot about her hair. Since it’s the only part of him that didn’t rot after his death, it means a lot to him. It’s the only thing he thinks would allow Laboon to recognize him after fifty years. Since he will never grow back if they are cut, Brook is extremely protective of them. Due to the promise that Brook and the rest of his crew made to Laboon, Brook feels compelled to see Laboon again in order to keep that promise.
During the “500 Million Man” arc, Laboon is shown to be very happy after learning of Brook’s new bounty, indicating that he is aware of Brook’s survival and involvement with the Straw Hats. .
