** Also, keep in mind that lots of humans in the One Piece world are openly racist against races like the Fishmen, so it's likely that plenty of other human-subspecies like the three-eyed tribe are discriminated against- regardless of how attractive one member might be individually. Also, pre-pubescent kids probably don't really care about how "attractive" another kid is; all they see is the third eye, so they freak out. As for Big Mom, she's just a {{Jerkass}}, so that's explanation enough for why ''she'' mocked Pudding as well.

* So, what the heck is Prometheus supposed to be? I mean, it's not like Big Mom could have taken a sample of the actual Sun to make him, so... is he a fireball that she gave life to or something? If that's the case (which it probably is), why does he look like a miniature sun?

** First: There's a difference in being a Gonk and being a whole other sub-species all together(Subspecies are beautiful, gonks are not.). Second: Big Mom was the one who started it by calling the girl hideous. Big Mom's word is law, so everyone else in Totland instantly followed her lead and called [[spoiler: Pudding]] hideous as well. Even if there were people who disagreed about this, they would be far too terrified to speak up against the word of Big Mom and joined in on the mob to save themselves. In short, this poor girl ended up as a victim to mob mentality and group pressure, all invoked by her own mother.

* How is it that [[spoiler:Sanji]] was the first person ever to find [[spoiler:Pudding's third eye]] beautiful? This is ''One Piece''; '''much''' freakier things are pretty routine in this world. And given how many {{Gonk}}s [[spoiler:the Charlotte family]] contains, [[spoiler:Pudding]] is almost certainly the prettiest member yet everyone always thought she was hideous?

* When it's introduced for the first time Busoshoku Haki was shown to be used to form shockwaves from the hands to the point expert users were even able to counteract an earthquake, but after the time skip this form of using haki is totally erased and instead replaced by a black hardened coating. And even when it can be implied it's a more advanced way of using it. Why no one used that form at all during the Marineford war? Whitebeard, his top henchmen and the admirals should've been able to use such power quite easily. And why the shockwave form of haki wasn't used ever again? It could have been useful since it has a bigger range of attack than the hardened version.

** Well I think that the higher the bounty the less they add up each time, money doesn't grow on trees you know, he defeated buggy, Kreig, and arlong and gor 30 million, he defeated a Shikibukai and got raised to 70, he defeated member of the [=CP9=] and caused all that ruckus and got raised 200, now he hit a noble, damaged a Pacifista, defeated Moria, escaped Impel Down plus got other inmates (including 2 of level 6) out, declared war on the government, fought on the Marine ford battle and was a great force in said battle and only got raised 100 million, the people already got the idea that he's very wanted and powerful, they're starting to take many more offenses into account before raising a substantial amount because after all they have bounty on a lot of pirates, and like I said money doesn't grow on trees.

to:

*** "Being someone's son" is clearly something that '''does''' matter to the World Government, though. The whole reason why they considered it so important to kill Ace is that he was Gol D. Roger's son. The fact that Luffy is the son of Dragon, the world's most wanted criminal, would be a huge deal to them. And was treated as such by Sengoku when he revealed it to the world. Also, publicly assaulting a World Noble should by all rights be seen as an even bigger deal than simply defying the World Government, given how colossally egotistical the World Nobles are and how much influence they hold. And then there's the fact that Luffy defeated the legendary Marine hero Garp in battle. Granted, Garp took a dive but that's something they'll never admit because that'd be even '''more''' embarrassing than the idea of Luffy being strong enough to oneshot Garp.

Added DiffLines:

** That was the Straw Hats' last chance to defeat Moriah and get off Thriller Bark. Luffy only got as far as he did fighting Moriah due to the collective efforts of Lola's group, who were in hiding collecting shadows, and their success hinged mostly on Moriah not knowing of her organization. By that point, their identities had become known to Moriah, and they would've been decimated by the following night.


Added DiffLines:

** Indeed, "Edward" is the surname and "Newgate" is the given name. There is a man named Edward Weevil who claims to be Whitebeard's son. There ARE cases where the names are in western order, but they're rare enough that it's a safe assumption the names are in Japanese order unless confirmed otherwise.


Added DiffLines:

** There is no doubt the Marines know about the Minks. I'll bet there's at least one Mink among the Marines too. But Bepo looks pretty close to a normal polar bear, just one who's always on its hind legs. If they never hear him talking, they'd have no reason to suspect he is a Mink. Pedro, Pekoms, Dogstorm, and Cat Viper cannot be mistaken for normal animals the way Bepo could.


Added DiffLines:

*** Paramecia is essentially the miscellaneous category. Categorically, it really IS just any Devil Fruit that's neither Zoan nor Logia.


Added DiffLines:

*** That's the thing though: The Sun Pirates were able to hide their markings as their pirate emblems, and they got away for decades unidentified as former slaves. My guess is that the Kuja Pirates approached the markings differently than the Sun Pirates. The Sun Pirates wandered around out in public and in broad daylight and disguised their brands to avoid suspicion. The Kuja Pirates, on the other hand, mostly keep to Amazon Lily and attack anyone who approaches the island who isn't partof the Marines.
