Zoro will be the obvious choice as next MC and pretty sure even Oda would love to make us follow his adventures like in Wano.
But if you think, we will see the other SH you are wrong. With luffy, Oda needs to show others SH because they are part of the crew. With Zoro, Oda doesn't need to give a fuck. It will be a solo adventure 100%. Zoro will leave the crew for sure because he doesn't want to put them in danger with his adventures and doesn't like to lead.
But if he decides to lead the crew, they will follow him for sure, they are all friends first of all.
And he is still a WG, aims to be the future WSS, so they ain't really losing something famewise.
Sanji will stay for nami and robin.

Who among the strawhats would you prefer be the MC? And by MC I mean they become the Captain of the ship and become the strongest person in the crew, and the story changes course to focus on their dream as the climax of the story. Also of course they would have to convince everybody on the crew to follow them like Luffy did.

(By 'become the strongest' I mean the story itself has to make sure the captain is the strongest so for example if Usopp is too weak, the story gives him the One-shot One-shot no mi or something. The story has to make sure he's the strongest either organically with training or whatever or by force with random power ups)
going by this its about being MC and captain so I'd say none of them fit

zoro isn't captain type

nami lacks motive

sanji lacks motive

usopp lacks courage

robin likes to play safe

brook lacks motive

chopper is a baby basically

franky lacks motive

jinbe not bold enough

I get why some people choose Usopp but let's face it, for a shonen he's too weak and too much of a coward to be leading a crew.

It would mean a drastic change of character and strenght for him to compete with others. And that would make it not believable. He's been weak since the beginning of One Piece, his growth is slow compared to others.

And nobody wants to see the MC fight fodders as his main fight of the arc.

That's why only Zoro could be the head of the crew.

But then again in this story the only one fitting the job is Luffy, they joined because of him. There would be no crew without him.

If Zoro becomes MC of one piece:

No Alabasta Arc, Zoro doesn't cared about Miss Wednesday.

No Ennies Lobby stop at Water Seven, Zoro doesn't trust Robin at that time

Zoro will cut Tenrubito first if not for Bonney interference. So there is time skip and we have an arc Zoro fighting Monkeys then two years skip. No MF also

No Dressrossa Law dont know Zoro and Zoro is not a D wielder so Law doesn't give a fuck

No WCI and all Vinsmoke family including Sanji dies and Big Mom crew become Power Rangers or Kamen Raider. Zoro doesn't want to go save Sanji and solely focused on Kaido

If Sanji :

All still could happen Sanji is Prince saving Princess lol. Sanji still go and help Rebecca and Viola without Law.... plus we get Sanji tamed Boa Hancock arc not Okama island arc
:funky:

You actually know igaram asked first zoro to help vivi, and nami sealed the deal without luffy ?
How law doesn't know Zoro who is also part of the WG ? :suresure:
Without Luffy, Sanji would have still stay at baratie with 0 ambition.

And the question is if luffy dies at wano and not at the beginning of the story. Read first.

Anyways my opinion....no suprise is Sanji.
yes. it is a surprise.
Hes easily the most versatile SH.
that does not make him a good MC
Can easily convey a range of emotions such as: badass, vulnerability, kindness, stubborn, harderned, intelligent, outgoing, comedic.
most MCs are pretty one dimensional. they work because they are easy to understand. Sanji definitely does not fit the pattern of shonen MCs.
To top it all off, he has a unique look and unique fighting style. No weapons or DFs.
a suit is not unique. his fighting style is unique. that does not make him MC material though.
If Sanji was MC, hed also get MC deserving fights.
just lol. thats not even a reason why he would be a good MC.
And if Oda toned down the perversion.....we easily have the most solid character in OP.
strange notion. so if Oda changed the character than he could be a good MC? well, sure. same logic can be applied to every character in the story. including Pekoms.

Sanji is most definitely not a good pick for a MC.
the biggest factor here is his motivation to move forward. its not comparable to characters like Luffy and Zoro. Zoro has this on his own. he always had. he does not need Luffy for that.
if Luffy is gone then Zoro would still keep chasing his own dream. Sanji? he would not even have left Baratie in the first place if Luffy did not drag him along.

you asked for the point of this topic?
I guess it was mainly created because the obvious choice here is Zoro. gloating. thats why.

no one in crew has ability of luffy or roger. the crew can sail new world but cant tamed it,they can barely finish it.
luffy has ability to gather even enemy as his allies. whenever you send luffy alone. he will make whole island/country as his followers. that ability also works on his ship. that only one ability. not to mention crucial ability/factor like VOAT, COC and the sheer of luck itself. he is the boss but he always work thrice times harder than the subordinate esp at critical situation. even at war of the best ppl on whitebeard calibre just need little time to acknowledge him and give everything to support him. ppl like rayleigh or hyogoro asking him to be his mentor, not otherwise. compare that to zoro or sanji where they need to begging and throw their pride only to be the pupil.

if luffy were die they will just disband. bcause no one on the ship share same dream nor carry luffy's will. everyone dreams are too shallow and superficial for new world.

Yeah because Zoro is not Captain he cannot retort Nami. If he the captain he can use captain order. You forget that.

Of course Law know Zoro but Law choose Luffy because miracle created by D wileder. Why he not with Kidd then? Sanji will safe any princess with or with out Law.

If you want say Sanji stay at Baratie, then Zoro still nothing but a muderer who murdered people just earn money for food. Plus with his directionak idiot he still at East Blue wandering around doesn't know how to go back to his home.

Of course I compared them with whole crew. Use better argument

Zoro of course

He is the co MC since the start of the series

I'm sure he would carry the crew out and make a hell of a good job with it :))
Only option is Usopp. If Zoro were to be a captain, Sanji would never work under him, even though they respect each other in reality. Would the crew be willing to lose Sanji permanently? Usopp is the one single character in the series that is closest to Luffy in terms of mentality, and is the only person that would be capable of holding the crew together without any “sacrifices”.

Without Roger, Rayleigh would still be stealing boats and sleeping around.
Zoro is a lone wolf type and is not fit to be a captain. Wisdom and strength are not the main qualities to band the remaining SHs together.
If anyone were to be a captain, the option should be Usopp (runner up is Nami)

without sanji there won’t be yonko saga, sanji is only one who helped kinemon when everyone else was against helping him or in dressrosa without sanji turning viola into an ally law would have just handed ceaser to doflamingo so the argument “without Xcharacter, Ycharacter would be...” is pointless

Exactly! Zoro is a better conqueror, Sanji is a better king. A captain should have qualities of both.

You do realise im not using the generic makings of current MCs to explain why Sanji would be a good MC. The whole point of me saying Sanji would be a good MC....is cause hes not like Luffy or othwr shitty Shonen MC. That Sanji isnt that far from being written as a great character.

I think your taking the whole thing too seriously. This isnt who would make OP, be as OP as it is. Meaning this isnt about who would be as shitty as Luffy is.

This is about who you would want to replace Luffy. Someone who you think would be better for OP. And I believe that would be Sanji.

Its truly sad that you are lingering and searching for a reason to have Zoro as the only answer. And the only thing you can come up with is Zoro is as badly written as Luffy is lol. Well done.

Anyways this is who you prefer to replace Luffy. Not who would make the most Luffy like MC.

And if Zoro was MC, he would be like Mihawk and be a lone wanderer. He wouldnt have a crew.

Looking back at all the previous answers. No one even understands this thread. And what I said at the start is true.

We all want our favs to be the MC. Cause they have likable traits that we would want for the Main Character.

usopp lacks courage
@AL sama

But isn't this his dream. Like I said, the story would change focus to the new captsin's dream

Imagine a situation where Usopp gets a has df and tries to continue the journey for luffy's sake snd somehow manages to convince everyone to stay and along the way they start respecting him as a real captain as he becomes braver snd braver and by the time Usopp is a brave warrior, the story ends. With or without finding one piece

What ?
Didn't know sanji was involved when Luffy declared the war against BM at FMI for eating the candies, at one point she/luffy would have come for him/her. Or at PH when law and luffy decided to go for kaido without knowing who kinemon was, also luffy helped momo who is more important than kinemon. Btw Sanji didn't want to help the kids remember ? Even without kinemon, the fact luffy defeated CC and after that wanted to go at dressrosa (kinemon didn't even say anything) and defeated Doflamingo, would have lead the SH to Kaido. Only Luffy's decision matters.
So even without sanji, the yonkou saga would have started, lmao this thirst to link everything to Sanji.

But you said sanji would have saved vivi, he was sleeping at whiskey peak so how he could have known vivi ? So 0 argument.

Because Kidd wasn't at Punk hazard maybe ? :seriously:

better arguments than you saying this ?
"No Alabasta Arc, Zoro doesn't cared about Miss Wednesday.

Zoro will cut Tenrubito first if not for Bonney interference. So there is time skip and we have an arc Zoro fighting Monkeys then two years skip. No MF also"

of course i can't add nothing more, why Zoro will be at SA if he wasn't with SH ? :suresure:


If you didn't understand Zoro defeated the baboons before his training with Mihawk, then it shows you don't give a fuck about Zoro, so why are you talking about him ?


The whole thread about if Luffy dies, who will be the next MC but sanjifans "oh oh oh without sanji =no One Piece" :ihaha:

And who told you that helmepoo could have killed Zoro ? Any proof of that ? it says HE WANTED to kill Zoro, not he KILLED Zoro.
Like Luffy who wanted to save Ace, but it didn't happen. There are difference between want and do.

nothing about Sanji would make him a good MC. he lacks drive. if Luffy did not drag his sorry ass onto his ship he would still be flipping burgers at Baratie King.
Meaning this isnt about who would be as shitty as Luffy is.
its about who could makes the crew press onward. the only person who could is Zoro. he is the only one following a dream where the others can attach themselves to.
as long as the journey provides him with opponents he will continue.
wether the rest sticks arround is the biggest issue in this. if you boil it down, no one would. for no one. the moment Luffy dies the crew stops existing.
at least for Zoro you can make a case that he continues his journey with enough interesting stories ahead.
And I believe that would be Sanji.
Sanji follows. he does not lead. if Luffy dies then Sanji goes back to East Blue to become a dishwasher again.
No one even understands this thread. And what I said at the start is true.
the thread has 1 premise that makes it hard to argue for anyone. its the part that people have to stay. all dreams except Zoros are getting fulfilled by reaching Laugh Tale and seeing Luffys journey all the way through to the end.
so, only Zoro has enough drive to press on without Luffy, but the others dreams do not align with it.
no matter how you spin it. either Zoro leads or Zoro splits. or from the crews perspective, either they all try to reach their goals together without Zoro or they follow Zoro.
We all want our favs to be the MC. Cause they have likable traits that we would want for the Main Character.
no.
no one else makes sense.
Zoro would not stick arround. hes only on the crew because Luffy blackmailed him. he would resume his journey to become WSS. they can either tag along with him or hes doing it alone.
this automatically rules out any other possibility. if they crew has to stick together that is.

that can never work. many of the dreams are heavily tied to reaching the last island. Namis, Frankys, Robin, even Sanjis I would think.
I can only see the people with overlapping dreams to stick together. and from those, Nami would be the leader.
she would never be the strongest though.
ik you specified this in the OP, but its a bad premise for the thread. its somehow contradictory.

Like Luffy who wanted to save Ace, but it didn't happen. There are difference between want and do.
All the arguement you said already prove the point Luffy decision did not involve Zoro in it. I already answer this thread before I made that comparison between who is MC between Zoro and Sanji. You dont read others answer then you come want to bash others. That comparison I made to show fact who better MC if replace Luffy, I made comparison using story line so far it is not wank Sanji or bashing Zoro. Since we were choosing new MC if Luffy dies. The decision and character betwen those from the start of the story. This story alraedy saving at least two princess with Zoro character he doesn't give a damn. He choose only for WSS he doesn't care. He need more interaction before he give a damn care about others. Not like Luffy who made decision on the spot which can be used to Sanji if involved beauties. That the reason I choose for replacing Luffy using fact told from stories so far. Used fact from the stories man, I never answered and I accepted people say Sanji is failed experiment because it the truth.

Luffy decision did not involve Zoro in it
it does not have to. Zoro is his own character with his own ambition. something all the rest are lacking. Zoro has set out on his journey alone. the only other character from the SHs that comes close here is Robin. she also set out alone. but she abandoned her dream once already.

Sanji, as much as you want him to, has no such ambition. not even close. Luffy had to kick him in the bollocks so he would finally move out of moms - escuse me, Zeffs - basement.

Zoros drive for greatness is what a story needs as fuel. this is missing for everyone else except Luffy. so, Zoro remains the obvious choice.
