One Piece: Why Buggy is the next Yonko?

We all know that Buggy will become the next Yonko alongside Luffy. It’s a big shock, how Buggy will become a Yonko maybe when the marines who tried to capture him were hit by a natural disaster and Buggy is credited for it, but what if there are ” evidence” of omen and logical reasoning for it?

What Buggy has, similar to previous Yonkos

Looking at the similarities between the previous Yonkos, Kaido, Big Mom, Whitebeard, Blackbeard (Shanks excluded because we know so little), there are certain criteria they all have.

– A fairly large pirate crew: Buggy with his Baggy’s Delivery, consisting of the Cabaji administration, Alvida, Galdino, Mohji, Richie etc, but also the inmates of Impel Down, they are all dangerous and presumably strong criminals, in more former mercenaries like Hajrudin the Giant.

– Be a threat to the world government: Baggy, in addition to being a pirate, also runs Baggy’s Delivery, which specializes in sending pirates and other powerful warriors to help a country or group in battle if they pay for it. It’s literally Germa 66 with less German and less science.

– Territory : Kaido a Wano, Big Mom a Whole Cake Island and formerly Fish-Man Island, Whitebeard has the small island where Nekomurashi and Marco met before the raid. Blackbeard in Fullalead/ Pirate Paradise, Luffy has Fishman Island now, Buggy has Emptee Bluffs Island. This is what Law and Kid did not or never mentioned having. All Yonkos have a “hiding place”, a territory or an island under their protection, instead of the stereotypical pirate who stays on his ship.

Buggy’s past and how he is a dangerous man in the eyes of others.

During the Marineford War, the world knows more about Buggy’s Law and he is an absolute threat in the eyes of ordinary people in the One Piece universe.

Baggy And Shanks

– Previously the crew of the Pirate King Gol D. Roger.

– Brotherly bond with current Yonko Shanks.

– Went to Lodestar Island and almost laughed, almost knew what One Piece is.

– Survived a skirmish with Mihawk, unscathed (a bit of satire here).

– Former warlord.

– Leader of Baggy’s Delivery, a group of mercenaries.

– Took Doflamingo’s place in terms of business after Doffy’s loss.

Messages and symbolism

Why does Yonko Baggy sound good? Parts 1 and 2 already make him a viable candidate, but also the symbolism of Luffy shaking up the system and breaking the status quo of what a Yonko should be! Luffy’s journey had already unwittingly led to the abolition of the warlord system. Now Luffy, awakened by Joy Boy, will take this to the next level, Yonko-wide!

Volume 25 One Piece

Finally, the cover of volume 25 could foreshadow the Yonkos after the saga – Shanks, Blackbeard, Luffy, Buggy.
