    One Piece is well-known for its numerous surprises and plot twists in its story but are there twists that you didn't like and/or approved of ?

    Watatsumi's last-minute save of the Going Sunny during WCI.

    I get what Oda was going for, a snap comedic/upbeat tonal shift in a musical stage performance ( my impression at least ), but the execution was lacking and left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths. Probably reads better in a collection with no stop-gap between chapters, I dunno, but the week-long intermission kinda ruined the timing. Whatever dramatic weight was conveyed - intended or not - just got undercut entirely, making people question the entire point of the scene in what was already perceived to be a very long and overly drawn out escape sequence filled with too many "lucky saves."

    The giant straw hat. I don't want to be quick to judge but I have a bad feeling about this.

    Big Mom losing her memory

    let me tell you how shitty is this


    I said before that I would consider Top 5 fantasy writers ever along side people Martin and Gaiman and Sanderson and Pat Rothfuss if One Piece ending be some thing legit


    but if Big Mom lose her memory and be use as a plot device only to end Wano


    I can never consider Oda that high cause this is a cheap trick ...

    Pell being alive. Oda doesn't make many mistakes but this was definitely one of them.

    Ah yes, him surviving Hina was not suprising at all but Magellan's poison without any antidote is just pure plot armor.

    The main objective of that scene was to destroy the Sun Pirates Ship, and thus signifying Jinbei's departure from the crew, and the end of the Sun Pirates... The ship was considered Legendary so Oda couldn't just destroy it without putting a meaning behind it , and what better way to do that than to sacrifice the ship for the sake of the Crew that Jinbei will join.... It becomes so much more satisfying when you realize the intention behind the scene...

    Can any of them be considered as a plot twist?

    Honestly, I can only remember only three plot twists in whole 932 chapters of OP:

    1. Lucci, Kaku, Califa and Blueno being CP9 (excellent execution)

    2. Doflamingo being a celestial dragon (very good execution)

    3. Sunny being saved by Wadatsumi (meh execution)

    Edit: How did I forget Nami being an Arlong pirate?:faceplam: That was a superb plot twist. Specially because Nami used to be covered up more back then and so the tattoo remained completely out of sight.

    Nah man, even if such is the case, it could've been handled way better imo. But that's just me, if that's your take-away from that scene, that's cool.
