* Why haven't we seen more fishmen or menfolk that have eaten devil fruits? One, how many of such fruits do you know actually grow under the sea? Only those fishmen that have been to the surface would probably encounter them. Two, if your primary abilities and very lifestyles revolves around swimming and manipulating water, then ''knowingly'' eating a fruit that robs you it is that last thing you'd probably want to do! (Unless you're somebody like Vander Decken).

** And now you know why the kingdom's name is "Totland". It's the land of death.

** And now World Government has Sugar in their custody. In Impel Down they had a level specifically for people they wanted to erase from history. Now they have the power to actually do that.

** Or... [[spoiler:let's not forget that this was a meeting of all kings. If Straw Hats didn't ally themselves with Law against Doflamingo he would still be the king of Dressroa. Meaning that Hody might have ran into him there.]]

* Luffy and company really ''do'' have the Devil's luck; Imagine if Judge and Big Mom had successfully managed to find Sanji before the Sabody Arc- as in back when the Straw Hats were still pretty weak. Big Mom's crew would've absolutely ''massacred'' them and, knowing what Linlin herself had in store for them, Sanji and the Sanji retrieval team probably would've met a gory end.

** Not entirely true. Some of the strongest characters don't use fruit powers at all and other are BlessedwithSuck. For example, Garp had been offered the position of Admiral countless times but he declined, the former Admiral and mentor to the current admirals, Zephyr, saw devil fruits as a weakness to be exploited and Tsuru having the ability to... wash people.

* Why Garp tried so hard to turn Luffy and Ace into marines; He did it because he wanted to prove that children donít inherit the sins of the father, and in making them strong marines he would also be able to keep them safe because the World Government and marines would have no reason to hunt them or think of them as threats or monsters. -- Cryoflar3

* This might only apply to the anime since [[thedude14 this troper]] hasn't read the manga. Right after Ace has blasted Blackbeard with a Fire-Fist, notice how long he stays on fire. Back in the Alabasta Arc, Ace was able to light Sanji's cigarette from a distance (at least in the Anime, anyway). That's why Blackbeard took so long to stop burning: Ace was purposely keeping the fire on Blackbeard's body burning!

* This was from a [[{{Filler}} filler]] part of the War on Marineford arc where Ace is officially made 2nd Commander of Whitebeard's fleet. The crew pulls him in as he eats and crowds on him, which exactly mirrors Chopper's first party as a member of the Straw Hats. Essentially, it was the same dynamic of an [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer outcast that had been taught that he was a monster]] finally finding acceptance in group that treated him like [[TrueCompanions family]]! It also gives a heartwarming spin on the Whitebeard pirates' determination to rescue Ace: he's their Chopper! -- PickledPlums

* First time we meet Ace, he is more or less 100% [[MrFanservice fangirl bait]] with a shapely bod, no shirt to hide that or his tattoos, and a cool head to contrast with Luffy's impetuity. However, every facet of this has a reason for existing: he's went under more rigorous training living under Dadan than Luffy (since living under Dadan meant you ate what you hunted); his tattoos actually illustrate very important stages of his pre-story CharacterDevelopment (the Whitebeard mark being an obvious one to his acceptance of Whitebeard as his true father [[spoiler:and the misspelled name on his left arm being a tribute to his first friend Sabo]]); his flame powers would burn off any shirt he put on since his Logia powers woule instantly activate if anyone tried to hit him torso-up; and his maturity is not only based on him being Luffy's main caretaker when they were kids, but also [[spoiler:Sabo's last request to look after him, ''their'' little brother]]. -- Rookiez78

* As the date of his execution drew near, Ace told Jinbei that he didn't have to worry about Luffy after meeting the Straw Hhat crew back in Alabasta. [[spoiler:After Ace's death]], Jinbei reminds Luffy of his crew, giving him a ''much''-needed snap-out from his HeroicBSOD. The first scene actually makes more sense in the anime, since about 400 episodes ago Ace had spent a good time travelling with the Straw Hats, rather than the brief encounter he had with them in the manga. In other words (at least in the anime's context), what we thought of as filler episodes with one of the series' {{Ensemble Darkhorse}}s a few years ago indirectly led to one of Luffy's most crucial moments in the ''whole story''. -- Rookiez78

* Despite being a [[CharlesAtlasSuperpowers Six Powers]] master, Vergo is never seen using [[RazorWind Tempest Kick]], which actually makes a lot of sense: Vergo is trying to keep the facility safe, and Tempest Kick is one of the most destructive attacks he has!

*** But when it gets to human transport it gets really difficult for non-VIPs / non-Marines, since the only way to get out of the Grand Line into one of the four seas is to cross the calm belt with sea kings and maybe even Fishman Island before that. Now we just need to ask Don Krieg about how he made it back. My own theory is that the land in-between (Red Line) is as stated above passable. This way North / East and West / South are connected.

* When we're first introduced to how things are run in Big Mom's kingdom, it all seems fairly reasonable. Residents staying in Totland are required to give two months of their lifespan every year as payment for staying. Big Mom's incarnations collect this "tax" asking each resident "Life or Leave?". In exchange, everyone is protected by her and is apparently happy. Fair enough, and not too bad. However... as we discover more and more, the more we find out Big Mom's friendly face is all a charade, culminating with Charlotte Brulee making it crystal clear: "Everyone trying to enter is welcome. Everyone trying to leave dies!" The "tax" from Big Mom is merely an illusion of choice just like the roulette. The choice is: you pay life-span and stay... or you die. ''Totland is possibly the biggest GildedCage in all of fiction!''

* Pretty much every officer of the Donquixote family has an equivalent officer in Baroque Works, but there's one other parallel. Luffy defeated Crocodile by smashing him ''upwards'' through the ceiling of an underground chamber and the surface ground, destroying the city block above in the process; and he defeated Doflamingo by smashing him ''downwards'' towards the island, destroying multiple city blocks as he split the island's ground in half.

* Upon recently rematch thriller Bark arc I realized something. When Zoro offers his head to Kuma as a substitute for Luffy. Sanji steps in to fill his spot claim that they should take him before he before he can cause any real trouble, This always seemed strange to me, while Sanji is indeed a powerful member of Luffy's crew, but his value isn't equal to the Zoro's or Luffy's. A potential King of the Pirates that is the son of the Revolution Dragon that has taken down 2 warlords and a Man gunning for the title of greatest swordsman that survived an encounter with Mihawk and earned his respect. Sanji is a strong chef that wants to find the all blue compared to those 2 he seems a bit outclassed in terms of threat potential, but then it hit Sanji isn't just a strong fighter [[spoiler: Sanji is a member of the Powerful Vinsmoke Assassin Family. With his background he could potentially be a equal threat to the government as much as the other 2. Sanji was not offering him self as a straw hat, rather he offering himself as Vinsmoke]]
