Character Discussion Shanks - the man that the Gorosei and Sengoku deeply respect and listen to

#1
Trolls aside, there are quite a lot of people who truly believe, that Shanks works for the Gorosei and feeds them information on the Goroseis request. The Manga however speaks another language.


Gorosei specifically ask Shanks what he wants and why he'd come here. Would you ask that an informant that secretly works for you? Furthermore, they specify that someone of Shanks' should not be involved in politics. They say, they only allowed him to enter since it's him.

This means, Shanks has the superior standing here; Shanks is the one having a request and the Gorosei are the ones willing to listen since they respect Shanks. And that's even though Shanks does whatever he wants; be it breaking through the marines defense to meet Whitebeard, which put the Gorosei in a state of awe [1], or just entering the war to end it and take the marines trophies (Whitebeard's and Ace' bodies).

Marinefans point out, that Sengoku gave him Ace' and Whitebeard's body because he knew of his affiliation with the Gorosei, hence saying "since it's you, I take responsibility for it". But that's fallacious because of 2 reasons:
  1. There is no reason to believe that Sengoku would know of any affiliations between the Gorosei and a Yonko, since Sengoku isn't of a rank that would give him such information
  2. If Shanks really was affiliated with the Gorosei and Sengoku knew of it, there would be no reason for Sengoku to say that he would take "responsibility" for it. Responsibility towards whom? The same WG and Gorosei that would allow Shanks to end the war and take Whitebeard and Ace with him anyways? Taking responsibility implies that Sengoku would act in a way that would contradict his superiors orders.
If Shanks really is affiliated with the Gorosei (The Goroseis statement disproves it), it's not in a relationship of inferiority. It would mean the highest ranking members of the WG have deep respect for him and are willing to listen to him and agree to his demands. Be it the Gorosei that say "since it's you", we will listen. Or Sengoku saying "since it's you", I will listen. The sentence "since it's you" seems to be common among the highest authorities of the marine and WG, when it comes to red god.


Now where are you, salty Larine Fanboys. :finally:

Shanks is a master of diplomacy and Yonko level fighter with unbeatable crew who knows most of world darkest info

not respecting Shanks is wired
Goroseis , Marine , warlords , Yonko , Pirates , supernovas all respect Shanks
a true CoC user who can turn enemies to friends
Roger JOINED MARINE in a war ... Shanks can talk to them


p.s
don't bother anyone who think Shanks WORKS for WG gonna get their ass kicked WORST that those who claimed CoC is fodder control
:endthis:

It is true when you need a snitch you sometimes have to be nice to him. Sometimes even offer him favours.

But does that mean he's your equal, hell no.

He's a low life, He's trash,
When you're done with him your discard him like the trash he is.

And That's what Shanks is.

Shanks respects the Gorosei more than the other way around. The way he speaks to them in the raw text is with the utmost respect.

The Gorosei probably perceive him as an useful tool, their goals seems to be aligned, they both want to preserve the balance of the world

Make no mistake though, the Gorosei are Im's puppets, one word from Im and they'd label Shanks as an evil pirate who needs to be killed off.

Sengoku respects Shanks because just like Whitebeard he knows he is a reasonable pirate who isn't the warmonger type that causes chaos around the world. Sengoku isn't Akainu, he doesn't wish to eradicate all pirates, his philosophy is closer to Shanks' hence the mutual respect.

I recall Shanks was pissed by the notion the World Government could have attempted to stop his meeting with Whitebeard to discuss the Ace/Blackbeard matter during the early events of the Pre TS, but it was probably circumstantial.

so of course they don't understand Shanks's greatness and confuse that with other things

We know in general he is respectful to everyone. He is not some ruffian like Sakazuki who hardly has any respect for anybody.

Sengoku respects Shanks because not only did he save Sengoku from Teach, he could have ended the marines that day but chose not to. He not only saved Sengoku, but spared his life and every marine's life.
