** Beauty jokes aside, the ''real'' reason Boa wasn't arrested for what she did was because the World Government had ''way'' too many things on their hands to really be concerned with what one Warlord was doing. As notorious as the Warlords normally are, they are not [[{{WorldsStrongestMan}} Whitebeard]] or [[{{SubmissiveBadass}} Marco]], so at that point, for once, [[{{TheyJustDidntCare}} The World Government Just Didn't Care.]]

*** If you notice, after Luffy's limbs expand from Gear 3, the haki hardens just the epanded portion, and everything else stretches. Also with Gear 4, that's the point, Doffy didn't expect it because it kind of runs counter to how we know both abilities to work.

** I'd say that after North Blue the South Blue is right behind it in strength. I mean three of the "Worst Generation" are from there Jewelery Bonney, Kidd, his first mate Killer, and most of both their crews. Plus South Blue is the birthplace of Gol D Roger's son Portgas D. Ace.

** Part of it could be that the World Government only counts raw destructive power I mean look at the original 7 Warlords; Hawkeye devastated an entire fleet (granted a weak one but still the ships huge),cut up the glacier and is the strongest swordsman in the world. Doflamingo almost utterly destroyed an entire country and it took another Warlord and the man who beat two to take him down. Crocodile was only beaten by Whitebeard and was later able to fight Akainu without getting injured. Hancock destroyed multiple Pacifista with kicks and got out of Marineford without a scratch (doesn't hurt that she has the rare Conquerors' Haki. Kuma's powers are downright scary and he's (was) a high ranking revolutionary, and Jinbe is also pretty strong and beat Moriah in seconds (doesn't hurt that he can throw the ocean at you). So compared to that lot Moriah is rather lacking in that department.

* During Punk Hazard, when Sanji was rescuing Kin'emon's torso from the poison lake, why didn't he use blue walk? He had already shown it off earlier, on the way to fishman island, so why not use it when time was of the essence? I know he was in Nami's body at the time, but surely he picked up SOME form of knowledge on how to adapt his techniques to a more feminine body after spending two years in the Kamabaka Kingdom!

** No matter how big the Thriller Bark is, at some point Moria would run out of space and food. The zombies may not need any food, but the crew itself needs food. Also, if he would keep more and more prisoners on his island/ship, one day they could stage a revolt against him. No matter how strong Moria is, at some point even he would run out of endurance.

*** The anime takes it UpToEleven. At the end of the Punk Hazard arc, all the boy children were awe-struck by Franky's robot stuff while all the girls couldn't care less, at best.

** Op here. Well, I mean, that's what I'm saying; the Dragons are only ''technically'' higher up than the Gorosei due to their dumb traditions; The Gorosei basically allow the nobles to have more power than them. But in practice, the Elders could easily ignore the pecking order and destroy the nobles. I mean, other than their heritage, every valuable thing the nobles have could simply be taken by force. And it's not like ''anybody'' would willingly defend them, and they damn sure can't defend themselves either. But, yeah, I guess the Elders just bought into the whole "natural right" thing and are too stupid to consider such an option.

** Also, Kizaru ignoring the Gorosei is different from the Gorosei ordering him to kill the Nobles. Kizaru ignoring the Gorosei would ''not'' be pragmatic because there would be serious consequences for him; there are people on the Gorosei's side- the other Marines - who could legitimately defeat and arrest him because they're strong. But the Gorosei getting rid of the World Nobles ''is'' pragmatic because, from what we've been given by Oda so far, there's not many consequences to doing this. In that scenario, the Nobles are so dickish that they'll have nobody on their side to punish the Elders, and then in turn the Elders could take all their personal wealth and secrets for themselves without any fear of somebody objecting to it.

*** Honestly, let's cut the unnecessary explanations and just call it what it is; AcceptableBreaksFromReality. One Piece is a work of fiction. Therefore, it doesn't need to be 100% scientifically accurate all the time. If it were, then every time Blackbeard created a black hole, the entire planet should be sucked in and crushed immediately. So yeah. Stylistically, Kizaru is more so doing a very advanced FlashStep rather than actually moving at the speed of light because then nobody would ever be able to beat him. That's all there is to it. When he says he's "moving at the speed of light", that's just for RuleOfCool.


Added DiffLines:

** "Or" is correct. According to the One Piece wiki, Brook doesn't actually ''need'' to eat or even breathe; his Devil Fruit will automatically keep his life force sustained. Presumably, he can still feel hungry and he can taste food, but the only things that will actually kill him are his body being totally destroyed or his second life eventually "running out".


Added DiffLines:

** Luffy's body is not ''literally'' made of rubber, guys. If it was, he would have rubber skin and he would be all freaky looking. Rather, the Gomu Gomu no mi gave his body the ''properties'' of rubber, meaning his flesh and blood stretches and otherwise acts like rubber, but is still just flesh. His bones are hard like normal bones, but they can stretch, basically.


Added DiffLines:

** Well for one thing it's never been confirmed that he had actually modified his balls, and for another thing, even if he had it's likely that Robin is stronger than you think she is. Keep in mind this women can do a diving suplex on 10 foot tall Fishman.


Added DiffLines:

** At the very least, we can piece together that the North Blue is probably the strongest ocean outside of the Grand Line. Montblanc Noland, Hawkins, X Drake, most of the Donquixote pirates, Law, and the Vinsmoke family all originated there- not to mention Doflamingo himself primarily learned to fight there too.


Added DiffLines:

** You're right, but this is something that's been pointed out in the story and simply hasn't been revealed yet. Dogstorm directly says it's strange that Jack could find Zou, so presumably we'll be finding out how he did it eventually. But, yes, he would've needed a Vivre Card to get there most likely.
