1-Marshall D. Teach “Blackbeard” shares part of his name, nickname, appearance, and many behavioral/personality traits with the pirate Edward Teach/Thatch known as Blackbeard.
2-Edward Newgate “Whitebeard” shares part of his name with the real Blackbeard too. The former 4th Commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, Thatch, also shares part of the real Blackbeard’s name.
3-Teach possesses the powers of the Yami Yami no Mi (Darkness Special Logia). The Yami Yami no Mi once belonged to Thatch.
4-Teach possesses the powers of the Gura Gura no Mi (Quake Paramecia). The powers of the Gura Gura no Mi were in Whitebeard’s possession immediately before the Teacher acquired them.
5-Teach needed Whitebeard’s body to get the powers of Gura Gura no Mi.
6-When a devil fruit power user diesthese powers revert to the nearest compatible fruit, which becomes a Devil Fruit.
7-Teach, long with her crew, went from Impel Down to Marineford without stopping at any Greengrocers or farms.
8-Teach is able to develop wolverine-like claws, as shown here (lower right panel).
10- Teach’s jolly roger has 3 skulls and 3 crossbones.
11-Teach carries 3 guns.
12- Teach is missing 3 teeth and has 3 beard braids.
13-A very strange intuition of Luffy and Zoro at the same time claims that Teach is a multiple person.
14-Charlotte Linlin acquired the powers of the Soru Soru no Mi immediately after eating a Croquembouche, the rest of the banquet, all the other children under the care of Mother Carmel and Mother Carmel herself who until then had these powers . The order of consumption is unknown as well as the composition of the rest of the banquet.
1-The claws that Teach can develop are a characteristic of his possession of the powers of a zoan devil fruit.
2-This Devil Fruit is a Cerberus Mythical Zoan.
3-This Devil Fruit allows the user to somehow “merge” or “add” up to two other people to themselves (say like Cell did with A-17 and A-18 in Dragon Ball Z).
4-Thatch ate the Yami Yami no Mi.
5-Teach incorporated Thatch into himself after the latter ate the Yami Yami no Mi.
6-Teach incorporated Whitebeard into him after killing him (or while he was still dying in his final moments, nearly dead to be more precise).
7-Incorporate the “essence” (soul, spirit, life force, X, whatever) of an ability user who by this process ceases to exist as a living individual “captures” the demon powers of the same way as eating a devil fruit.
8-As a result, Teach acquired the powers of the Yami Yami no Mi by incorporating Thatch and the powers of the Gura Gura no Mi by incorporating Whitebeard.
9-The holder could possess additional diabolical powers BECAUSE the holder was always another person and not a single person with multiple powers.
1-Each would have the powers of 3 devil fruits. One from each main class.
2-Teach would be several people. Specifically, 3 people currently, 2 people at the time Luffy and Zoro noticed it.
3-Teach is one of the characters that has changed physically the most over time. And each time he proved he had a new evil power, his appearance became closer to that of Blackbeard in real life.
4-The 3 characters who bear the name Blackbeard in real life would be one and the same character, because it makes no sense that 3 different Blackbeards exist.
