If we connect the dates and Oda’s statement that Makino’s child is also that man’s child… we can conclude that Shanks is the father.
This could lead to an amazing ending, what if Luffy gives the straw hat to Shank’s child and tells him the story about his adventures. What do you think?
Luffy and Shanks are both great characters and have their own goals. Shanks inspired Luffy to become a pirate and influenced him without even trying to do so.
Shanks gave him the straw hat and placed his trust in his hands. But fans have noticed that they behave alike. Maybe he saw the same thing Roger saw in Shanks.
Shanks and Buggy were onthe ship of the famous pirate king Gol D Roger and were his nakama.
They have probably seen Raftel and the great treasure, but why are they not trying to get back to Raftel and claim it? Is it out of respect towards Roger? Or are they interested in something else?
Shanks is the most badass character in One Piece. He stopped even Kaido from going to war. He is willing to do anything for his friends, even if it costs his life.
When Luffy ate the devil fruit and they made fun out of Shanks, Shanks didn’t care, because they were only insulting him, but you know very well what happened when they attacked Luffy.
The Shichibukai, Admirals and many more titles in One Piece are given to the strongest. But the Yonkou are the rulers of the sea and are in a run of who wil become the future pirate king.
Where is Luffy in all this? Will he fight all Yonkou? Or will someone else fight Shanks? Is there a possibility that the Yonkou will clash?
The Red Hair Pirates are the first pirate crew to appear in the manga series and second to appear (next to the Alvida Pirates) in the animated series One Piece. They are the main influences of both Luffy’s (Shanks inspired Luffy) and Usopp’s (wants to become a brave warrior of the sea like his father Yasopp) journeys.
Twelve years before the present story line, they spent a year in Luffy’s home town and became very good friends with him, which led to him wanting to become part of their crew. However, Shanks told him that he was too weak, which angered him. Shanks was also the one who unintentionally supplied Luffy with his Devil Fruit.
Beckman appears to be a lot less fun-loving and a lot more relaxed than the other members of the crew are, acting as the level-headed member. He, Lucky Roo, and Yasopp are some of Shanks’s most trusted crew members, as they are always seen when the Red Hair Pirates are featured, usually when something crucial happens.
At times, Beckman seems amused at the actions of his captain, such as panicking when Luffy is taken or getting even more drunk when he has already drunk a lot before and when Mihawk brings the news of Luffy’s first bounty.
Shanks and his crew went out to sea, with Luffy being left behind once again. Eventually, Higuma returned and took Luffy as a hostage when the latter insulted him. As Higuma was preparing to kill Luffy, Shanks, having returned, appeared nearby and teased Luffy about his claim of having a punch as powerful as a pistol.
Higuma warned Shanks to stay back, and when Shanks began to approach him, one of the bandits put a gun to his head. However, Shanks merely told the bandit to not point a gun at someone to scare them as Lucky Roo shot the bandit in the head, shocking the onlookers.
