    Why did Oda take Page One(possibly top 10 opponents in the arc) out of battle? Just for the sake of saving like 5 panel during the final stretch? That doesn't sound right to me but it's what most were implying when talking about the fight. So as the title says what was the point of that fight?

    The numbers indicate poll options.

    1, 2 & 3 seems unnecessary to do so but at the same time the most likely. X Drake and Page One were already there and after him and Queen was the one that sent them. Also SHs vs Beast Pirates is already a thing anyway.

    4. I don't see why it would be necessary to introduce the Raid Suit and it's abilities before the final battle unless it will have outside of battle use before the final fight. I would understand if it was a full display or something but it was like 5 panels which could easily have been included then.

    5. Was this really necessary from a plot point of view(rather than inverse which would make sense)? To me it seems like its the Kaido's forces that are outnumbered. A bit of a stretch but if Oda is willing to take out Kaido's top fighters before the final battle it might imply BM pirates will team up with Beast Pirates.

    6. Anyone know how well WCI and Sanji's part in particular was received in Japan?

    7. A few have been missing from this forum during the right time, coincidence?

    I think it was just to promote raid suit and show how Sanji would have looked like if he was a Germa, think of it like Zoro vs Pica which was just to show us Zoros COA.

    A short preview of what ahead when Sanji learn how to fully use the raid suit with along the upgrades Franky/Usopp will do to it. So Sanji can stand toe to toe with his endgame Wano opponent, possibly being Queen or an unknown character.

    To show that drake and hawkins escape death and lucky they didn't run into sanji first :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:


    no seriously oda put drake and page one introduction together in the same group flying fighters just like how king and queen and jack are in the same group. He wanted to show power levels more clearly. So to prove that page one was a real threat he put drake who is stronger than him but are on the same level in a group. This way sanji low diff page one and people won't call asspull when sanji beats queen at end of the arc.

    I think zoro will beat a flying six soon as well before his fight with king.

    There's no point. Fights don't mean anything in One Piece anymore. Expect them to be short and off-paneled.

    P1 was a stepping stone for Sanji. Oda wanted to show us what the raid suit can do and also that veteran level fighters are no match for him in order set up a fight against a YC level fighter later in Wano.

    This. .

    And I think there's also more Sanji would show, so Oda might not have wanted to pile everything together and this way, him gradually moving onto YCs lvl would also make more sense, instead of just defeating an YC straight after he was clashing with veterans in last arc.

    It was to hype up the Raid Suit, and put veterans behind Sanji.

    What they said, though it's left to be seen as to whether or not Usopp and Franky will tinker with it before Sanji's final fight.

    Imagine actually believing this.

    Imo hype a bit Sanji after WCI, at the same time it is an excuse to introduce the raid suit and tease the audiance about it not showing the full fight and full capabilities of the suit (a bit like G2 vs Blueno). Now people is questioning Sanji new powerlevel and at the same time Oda can sell a lot of new merchandising stuff about rs Sanji.

    If that was the case(Franky part), current RS's limitations would have been shown or at very least implied during that fight which wasn't the case.
    Sanji had a power up in his pocket so showing that wasn't necessary.
    The RS being a power up that allows Sanji to low diff a Veteren lvl opponent is no different to it allowing him to defeat a YC and therefore showing this fight makes no difference in that regard.

    The purpose was to build up the RS along with the raw strength and durability of Ancient Zoans......PageOne overpowering Sanji so easily was to come off as a shock like it was to Usopp, and Law said that it was obvious as PageOne is an ancient zoan...

    If PageOne has so much raw strength and durability, guys like the calamities or Kaido should be even worse.
