It’s very odd that Oda just didn’t give Brook, Chopper, and Usopp proper fights. All of the pieces were there. There were 9 main BPs, along with Perospero, which would conveniently let every SH get a proper 1v1. Even if Oda just really wanted Jack be be beaten by the Dukes, and not a SH, Oda could have just brought Smoothie and the BMPs to Onigashima
Would you rather see Chopper fight 3-4 of the remaining Numbers, or Daifuku? I don’t have faith that Oda will do the BMPs justice and let them fight the SHs, but if they do, I can see Chopper potentially fighting Daifuku and Brook fight Compote since both those SHs are fresh. Compote should be a Maria/Sasaki level opponent, so Brook would accomplish as much as Franky and Robin did
Usopp’s “beating 10 giants” lie could be foreshadowing for him beating all the Numbers. However, when Usopp told that lie, it was when the crew saw those 3 giant shadows. Usopp told that lie to Chopper in order to encourage him and make him think that they could have taken on those 3 monsters. Maybe that’s foreshadowing for Chopper taking down 3 giant monsters (Numbers 1, 2, and 3)?
I wonder what the heck Numbers 1, 2, and 3 are doing. We saw a silhouette of one Number a while ago, so Number 6 is likely just busy fighting fodders. Did these 3 drink so much that they’re still passed out?
Btw I'm interested in your powerscaling of the BPs. Do you think the bounties reflect their strength rankings? I'd say so. Sure age and other factors influence bounty, but I think Oda only uses those for determining how small the gaps should be, and not the actual bounty orders themselves. For example, if Maria was older, she would be closer to WsW's bounty, he would never let her reach WsW's bounty.
I remember you saying that Usopp may maintain a higher bounty than Robin and Franky by beating all 10 Numbers, but I don’t see how that can happen at this point. Franky and Robin are getting at least 500 million berry bounties since their opponents had borderline 500 million. Usopp currently has twice the bounty of those two, and he’ll need to do something much more spectacular than them to maintain that gap.
Oda pitting Killer and Drake (Zoro and Sanji's Supernova opponents) against Kid's former Supernova allies is making Ice Oni Drake VS Chopper feel less likely to me. Perospero teaming up with King and Queen makes him my new prime suspect for Chopper's matchup.
