One Piece – Will Vegapunk Be The Last Straw Hat Crew In The Manga Series? Fans already know that Luffy might want to accept one last character to be part of the Straw Hat team. First, they have a candidate. The first is carrots. This friend of the Mink Tribe has been with Luffy since the Wano arc.
After that, we also know that Momonosuke was once one of the other contestants. However, what became more of a problem was when Yamato reluctantly joined the Straw Hat Pirates. Unfortunately, at the end of the Wano arc, Yamato decided against it. Even so, there is speculation that the unlikely crew member is Vegapunk.
Who is Vegapunk?
Doctor Vegapunk is the smartest character in the world of One Piece so far. Born as an intelligent species, Vegapunk managed to increase his level of intelligence thanks to Nomi Nomi’s demonic seed. With this Demonic Seed, his brain protection abilities and intelligence were raised to the limit. He also participated in the MADS science team alongside Vinsmoke Judge, Caesar Clown and Queen for a time.
Vegapunk then becomes part of the World Government in charge of creating all kinds of things. Currently, Vegapunk is the leader of the Special Science group. What is surprising is the fact that he is the secret partner of Monkey D. Dragon and the Ohara Seekers. Not only that, he can also split his brain and use it on the 6 clones he made. Also, he knows almost everything in the world of One Piece.
Vegapunk joining the straw hats?
What’s interesting and surprising is that even though he did a lot for the World Government and Marines, even they see Vegapunk as an enemy and a threat. Also, they sent Rob Lucci to CP0 to end his life by going to Egghead Island. It remains unclear what the World Government’s true alibi is after Vegapunk’s death. This turned out to be Vegapunk’s alibi for asking Luffy to take him away from Egghead Island as revealed in Chapter 1067 yesterday.
In the One Piece series, this situation is not the first time. What happened to Vegapunk is similar to what happened when Nico Robin asked Luffy to accept her as a member of the Straw Hat Pirates. This happened after Alabasta. Luffy himself agreed to accept Robin as his crew, which shows how Luffy ended up saving him from CP9.
Along with Luffy’s penchant for recruiting and acquiring unique personalities to join his crew when they meet, this has also led to speculation that Vegapunk might join the Straw Hats. Geeks will think that the Straw Hats already have a genius creator, Franky.
However, his own judgment suggests that Franky’s intelligence and skills are very different from Vegapunk’s. Also, Franky’s job or specialty is related to boats. Based on that, joining the Vegapunk Straw Hat crew was a great idea. Considering that he is also a person who is thirsty for knowledge, it is likely that by joining Luffy he will find the answer he is looking for.
The Vegapunk influence accompanies the Straw Hats
So what influence does Vegapunk have on the Straw Hats and the story as a whole? As mentioned above, Vegapunk can help the crew with various scientific questions. It can also help support the Straw Hat Crew’s strength and other things to increase their power level.
Taking over the World Government is definitely not an easy task, as this is the strongest organization in the world of One Piece. They have weapons that can destroy an island in an instant and other weapons that are terrifying and deadly like the Seraphim. Having a member or staff who understands the tricks of dealing with threats and has knowledge of world government will greatly benefit them.
Vegapunk can help grass hats grow better and stronger than before. For example, Vegapunk is shown to be well versed in the world of medicine. He can help Chopper achieve his dream of becoming a great doctor. Vegapunk, on the other hand, could help Nico Robin learn various subjects that he had no prior knowledge of. Of course, Vegapunk’s appearance at the end of the One Piece series brought enormous consequences.
By joining Vegapunk and the Straw Hats, this feeling can happen to everyone. Eiichiro Oda is famous for the surprises he always gives his fans. With the arrival of Vegapunk and the Straw Hats the team could be one of the biggest surprises in this final round.
