It would have been so much more interesting and exciting to see a war between the Kaido-Big Mom alliance and the Navy, or a real war between Kaido and Big Mom with both sides going all out and not allying with each than any battle opposing them to the Straw Hats.
Poor Ulti and Page One, to be wasted on weak trio members instead of fighting worthy foes and seeing how good they truly are as a team in battle, and with Nami and Usopp being helped by a Yonko and her powers none the less.
God I would have loved to see a real battle between two Yonkos with or without their crews, or between 1 or 2 Yonko against the Marines, or against the RA or the Warlords, or between the Navy and the Warlords or RA. That would be far more interesting than any battle involving the Straw Hats.
Something I find annoying with manymembers of this forum is how they use events or feats that happened many arcs ago and as such have become long irrelevant to bash or downplay a character, such as Sanji vs Vergo or Zoro being gased asleep by the Yeti Cool Bros, for their own agenda.
I said once that it would be far more epic and interesting to see two Yonko and their crews facing each other in battle or the marines or the Revolutionary Army than the Straw Hat Pirates and whoever is allied with them.
This is even truer than I thought back at the time.
With this chapter my intuition that Vegapunk's new weapon is Pacifistas with fully copied devil fruits powers is only reinforced. The first Pacifistas including Kuma only had Kizaru's lasers for ability outside of them being very hard and strong cyborgs.
The new ones should be able of using at least all the basics of the Pika Pika no mi, and most likely of other devil fruits too.
Monet may be alive after all, now that we know that there is still an active lab in Punk Hazard. I would love to see her again, and to see her with Sugar since we didn't see their sisterly interactions.
Of course there would be a moment with several of the Beast Pirates mooks switching sides. Tssk and it's funny because if it had been just the minks and/or the samurais, or another Yonko crew or the marines or any opponent not member or affiliated with the Straw Hats it would have never happened.
I would love to see a villain who would be completely and rightfully unimpressed by the Straw Hats or anyone else boasts and threats and demolish them effortlessly just like Unicron tore apart Megatron's in the Transformers G1 movie.
It amuses me how some make the claim that Kid will beat or kill Big Mom, as if Kid will be capable of matching a Yonko on his own at the end of Wano final battle when Luffy is by far the strongest of the Supernovas and that he will recquire an insane amount of power-up, plot armor, help and other conveniences to be able of landing the finishing blow on Kaido.
