Looks like Ryokugyu wasn’t what his fans expected…
Despite the high anticipation surrounding his long-awaited debut, Navy Admiral Ryokugyu ended up being one of the most disappointing villains in One Piece. Since the introduction of him, some major questions have been raised about him, including speculation about his power, his devil fruit, and the abilities he would have. Nevertheless, he couldn’t even stand up to Shanks or stand up to Momonosuke.
Before continuing, the following article will contain spoilers for the latest Eiichiro Oda chapterif you want to read it on your own, you can do it through MangaPlus by Shueisha. Despite all the hype behind his debut, Ryokugyu ended up being the least impressive of the Admirals. In One Piece chapter 1054, he expresses his belief that humanity has survived through the ages by creating and defining who is “inferior” because discrimination creates comfort and justice. Because Wano is not affiliated with the World Government, the citizens of it can be killed without remorse. Despite all this great talk, when Shanks threatens Ryokugyu with his Conqueror’s Haki in chapter 1055, the marine sticks his tail in and leaves Wano without even putting up a fight.
Even an extremist like Fleet Admiral Sakazuki, who killed Luffy’s brother Ace, impressed readers with his unwavering belief in “absolute justice,” the uncompromising eradication of evil and crime at all costs, including the sacrifice of innocent lives to carry it out. Compared to that, Ryokugyu’s idea of discrimination as a key principle of human society seems rather shallow and empty, as he couldn’t keep his words to himself. Also, although his powers seem impressive, Ryokugyu did not convey that aura of absolute strength that the other Admirals had in their debut., and his hasty retreat from Shanks surely didn’t help with that (besides his loss at the hands of Momonosuke). It could just be that, at this late stage in the story, Luffy and his friends are so powerful that even the mighty Navy Admirals have lost some of their mystique.
It is easy to predict that, at some point in the future, Luffy and the Straw Hats will have to face Ryokugyu again, perhaps in the final showdown between the pirates and the Navy. Regardless of how it goes, Ryokugyu’s debut is still a huge disappointment, especially considering that he came right after Kaido, who was arguably the most impressive villain in One Piece history. But, it remains to be seen how this story progresses.
Admiral Ryokugyu’s power in One Piece was disappointing
The new One Piece villain standing in the way of the Straw Hat Pirates is already a huge disappointment. Navy Admiral Aramaki, also known as Ryokugyu (Green Bull), made his debut right after the end of the climactic battle between Luffy and Kaido, attempting to beat up the Straw Hats and take their captain’s head while they were still standing. they were recovering. However, this new and long-awaited character failed to impress either the fandom or his opponents..
The Admirals are the most powerful Marines, considered one of the three “Great Powers” in the world due to the military potential that each one possesses. Ryokugyu was the last “new generation” Admiral to make his debut. Until recently, readers only saw his silhouette and knew that he was involved in a big battle against Luffy’s brother Sabo and the other Revolutionary Army Commanders, but his appearance and powers were still a mystery. When Ryokugyu suddenly appeared in Wano, it came as a surprise because the Straw Hats were still recovering from the toughest battle of their lives, and facing such a powerful opponent right now could spell disaster. The Admiral’s powers also proved to be dangerous, as he ate the Mori Mori no Mi Logia-type Devil Fruit., which allows him to create, control and transform his body into plant life. However, even an inexperienced Momonosuke was able to stop his attack on Wano and, against Shanks, he could not help but flee.
