Yeah I believe I made a thread about that. I mean Kuma literally insulted his title when they closed idk why that always stuck with me. I feel like he was saying here you need my ability Pronto. Not to mention usopp teleporting away to snipe would literally make me forgive Oda for everything. The paws would be a nice way to avoid or repel attacks.though most importantly I think that df is needed to beat imu. I mean if you can repel memories we could learn of what happened back in the day when joyboy was around. If Imu is infact immortal.
I always pictured since before the timeskip vanauger talking to Usopp through a denden mushi and taunting him while teleporting from place to place so Usopp could never get close.
And Usopp somehow doing some impossible shot with mirrors or whatever to finally hit him.
Nah Franky can't get it. It would ruin his fights. And unlike most of the strawhat men other than Luffyband Zoro Oda actually seems to enjoy drawing Franky. Plus Franky specifically stated he didn't want a df.
