I was thinking about the world of One Piece and the different factions and stuff then I realised... What happened to the bounty hunters? One of the most interesting things in One Piece are bounty posters. They give us a decent indication of strength even though strength isn't 100% what makes up a bounty. There are hype moments when the straw hats get an increase and it is really cool to see where they stand in the world and how much of a threat the government actually see them as. But how come there are hardly any bounty hunters to collect these bounties? I can't remember the last important canon bounty hunter. When has the main antagonistic of an arc actually been a bounty hunter? It is as if the bounties are not there for the bounty hunters to collect but are simply hype tools. Also on a separate point, who is bringing in a billion berry bounty person? No fodder is brining in Dragon so they might as well not even have a bounty for him. The marines don't get the reward since it is their job, literally every single bounty hunter we have seen is fodder or seriously unimportant and weak and pirates can't go get the bounty because... well you know, they will get their asses caught too. So who is getting the bounties? Do you think in the future Oda will elaborate a bit more on bounty hunters and give us a decent character who is actually a threat to pirates rather than some scrubby punching bag? Just imagine how awesome it would be if Mihawk was a bounty hunter, but Mihawk is so sick as a warlord so I'm not complaining.
