There are many theories about the rise of Buggy the clown, but could he really become the King of the Pirates?
It’s no secret that Eiichiro Oda has always maintained his own style when it comes to narrating pirate adventures. However, until now all the unexpected twists, the secrets that have changed the course of history and discovered the origin of One Piece’s most notable characters seemed to have an end, despite the fact that the events of the Arc War Wano they still don’t stop.
And just when we thought there could be no more surprises in the adventure series, we realize that the world of One Piece has a new Yonko that we all know, but no one suspected. Can you imagine who it is? Well then It’s about Buggy the clown. Just as you have read.
The popular manga has been expanding its events since the days of East Blue, so the characters have had to compete and fight some of their biggest battles to keep up. This means that some of the characters have had to redouble their efforts to become renowned fighters, or pirates who inspire fear and respect among the large fleets. And, although he may surprise the audience, Buggy has become quite a fearsome leader.
What is a Yonko?
So far, a clarification should be made.** The title of “Yonko” (seen as an extension of Emperor of the Sea) is applicable to a pirate who, due to his exploits, has been able to seize a considerable territory** and has enough power to figure in world politics and, of course, be considered as a dangerous enemy of the World Government.
Now, in the past, those who have gotten their hands on this title are characterized by their incredible skills, strength, determination, and mastery of various forms of Haki.
So how was Buggy able to get this far if he hasn’t shown himself to have these attributes in the last chapters of One Piece? The answer is somewhat simple, and it is that, despite the fact that Buggy has not shown signs of displaying enormous power and his crew is in the same condition, there is evidence that since the events of Orange Town, he and his comrades have made great strides towards power. Although the audience still doubts if they will have what it takes to be on top of the seas.
The revelation of Buggy’s power
Once we have been approaching the rise of Buggy the clown, in chapter 1053 we can finally see how he got to the Yonko category. As we mentioned earlier, Buggy is now an evil emperor with the highest status a pirate can have, except for the Pirate King.
For his part, when introduced in Chapter 9, Buggy was an intimidating villain, though he quickly became the mockery of his peers thanks to his incompetence. Even Buggy’s crewmates were equally lacking in skills, but Buggy may have only been faking his way up the ladder. In fact, the series has not revealed what exactly the character did to get the Yonko title, so there is a lot of speculation among the audience.
Interestingly, whoever obtains this title is a potential Pirate King. In this way, Buggy is likely to become one. At the same time, there are three other characters that also have great possibilities, but they are all world-renowned fighters and have immense power. On the contrary, Buggy couldn’t have gotten this far thanks to his abilities; nevertheless, it is likely that his position as a Yonko is related to some specific feat while almost everyone was fighting in Wano.
Another theory is that Buggy found Captain John’s treasure, a pirate known for breaking away from the Rock Pirates. A lot of people consider said teroso to be the second most valuable, only after One Piece, and Buggy is years behind him, so it wouldn’t be surprising if his dream came true. Or, perhaps Buggy discovered one of the Ancient Weapons and for this reason the World Government believes him to be a threat to their interests.
Regardless of the reasons for which Buggy came to power, the reality is that he is still considered a cowardly pirate who could not deal with the implications of the position, although it should not be forgotten that he is immune to the Haki-covered cut, one of the attacks deadliest in the world of One Piece. But maybe now is his chance to show how far he could go on the seas.
