* The Marines apparently mistook Bepo for a normal bear, which is why his bounty is only 500 berries. Which is fair on first glance because it's said the Minks have lived in isolation from other humans for 1000 years... ''But'', shouldn't the Mink tribe's existence be common knowledge to the Marines at least? I mean, they (The Marines) have their hands in most world affairs and some of the Minks are very famous, like Pedro (with a bounty over 400,000,000 berries) or Dogstorm and Cat Viper, who were on Gold Roger's crew.

* The paramecia class of devil fruits annoys the hell out of me, zoans and logias have certain specific rules and criteria that make them what they are, but the only criteria for paramecia seem to be "Not Zoan or Logia". It's like it's a dumping ground. It's way too big. It should at least have subcategories. He could have given paramecia a little more thought.

** Actually, while Oda's never bothered to specifically categorize them, the [[http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Paramecia#Other_information One Piece wiki]] went ahead and explained the general pattern for them. To put what they noted here; "... it appears that the effects of this Devil Fruit type can be categorized into two basic groups: those which are based on a characteristic (such as elasticity or slowness) or an object (bombs, doors, etc.). Paramecia types are also distinguishable in the manner in which their powers manifest. They can either alter the user's current physical state (Luffy and Bon Kurei), directly affect their immediate environment and/or living things within proximity (Eustass Kid, Blueno or Whitebeard), or affect both of these conditions (Jewelry Bonney, Trafalgar Law and Emporio Ivankov)".

** No, Edward is his first name. Not every character in One Piece follows the Japanese naming format; some of them are written in the English style. For example, the Funk Brothers (who are Kelly Funk and Bobby Funk, not Funk Kelly and Funk Bobby), Eustass Kid, Basil Hawkins, Marshall D. Teach... this is mostly because all of these characters' names were based on real, English pirates or otherwise non-Japanese people. As for an in-series explanation, presumably some parts of the World just happen to use the English naming style.

** We don't know how soon after entering the New World Crocodile ran into Whitebeard, it could have been a Krieg Pirates vs MiHawk situation. Also, destroying the Pacifistas wasn't impressive on Hancock's part, as she was turning them to stone (Sanji could destroy concrete UNDERWATER before entering the Grand Line) and they were programmed not to fight her, as she's a Warlord.

** Because if Whitebeard made a deliberate move for One Piece, all the other three Emperors would form an EnemyMine alliance and stop him. Whitebeard may be the single strongest man alive, but her can't beat the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strongest together.

** And, to add: somewhere around the end of the Caesar Clown saga it was revealed that Doflamingo has been providing Kaido with *artificial* devil fruit to enhance his troops with(and, if I'm not mistaken, they're all Zoan types). We can assume Dofy is not the only one who's figured out a way to do that.

** You answered your own question. He was in Nami's body at the time, so not only did he not know if he could even pull it off, but he also probably didn't want to risk over-taxing her body. So, he only tried using it when there were no other options.

* During Punk Hazard, when Sanji was rescuing Kin'emon's torso from the poison lake, why didn't he use blue walk sooner? 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!
