In a shocking revelation that surprised all One Piece fans, the mangaka Eiichiro Oda provided new information about the relationship between Scopper Gaban and Yonkou Buggy. The latest fact unveiled in the One Piece manga is that the actual reason for Yonkou Buggy being a strong character is due to Scopper Gaban.
The surprising revelation comes as Eiichiro Oda prepares to introduce Scopper Gaban into the One Piece timeline. As one of the legendary crew members of Roger, Scopper Gaban was the left-hand of the Pirate King. His appearance is expected to be followed by a flashback when he was a member of Roger’s crew. The flashback will also highlight the younger members of Roger’s crew, such as Buggy and Shanks.
As Roger’s junior crew members, both Buggy and Shanks received special training from their senior companions to survive every battle they faced. However, after recognizing Shanks’ potential, Roger chose to train him personally, which is why Shanks can use Roger’s signature kamusari technique.
Meanwhile, Scopper Gaban trained Buggy and passed down various battle techniques, including the dual-axe style. However, due to Buggy’s obsession with Roger, he modified the technique to become a dual-sword style, which was already seen in the Oden flashback.
Scopper Gaban also passed down his love for treasure hunting to Buggy. After Roger disbanded the crew, Buggy followed Shanks, hoping that the young captain would become the next Pirate King.
Sadly, when Shanks delayed his journey to Laugh Tale after Roger’s execution, Buggy became disheartened and stopped honing his fighting skills. Nevertheless, because Buggy still wanted to become a pirate king, he will look for Scopper Gaban to retrain and improve his skills.
This meeting will allow Oda to showcase the flashback and reveal the connection between Scopper Gaban and Yonkou Buggy. It’s essential to note that this story is for entertainment purposes only and does not aim to pre-empt or alter the original One Piece story by Eiichiro Oda.
