    Ah, but he could then travel out of the cave by burning along the path up towards the entrance, eliminating all oxygen behind him to suffocate his opponent.

    Of course, the chance of him thinking of that is virtually nothing, but it would still be fun.

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,
    how do your powers grow?

    And, of course, there's always seastone. Give Zoro a seastone sword and he could take down anyone.
    Fire does not exist in a solid form. Therefore, cutting it [to the extent of harming Ace] would prove impossible.

    Seastone may suck as a blade. The only Seastone weapon to be revealed is Smoker's jutte, which hels support that theory.

    I have an interesting but simple theory about Logias. Hear me out.

    We know Logia users turn into their respective powers. However, some Logias are way more powerful than others. Specifically, Ace, Aokiji, Eneru, and Crocodile have these uber-powerful abilities. Smoker has the ability to turn into and control smoke and smog. Smoker's powers are really lame compared to the other ones. Why is that?

    I theorize that there is a subclass to Logia which only has 5 members. Fire, Ice, Lightning, Earth, and Wind. These are the elemental powers, so I'll call it elemental class, and they correspond to the Japanese concept of 5 elements. Fire burns, Ice freezes, Lightning shocks, Wind blasts, and Earth errodes. These five elements are seen in many other series as well, and usually, they're seen as really powerful, or as base of powers.

    Other powers like smoke and water don't have as much capability as these five. Users turn into their unique materials and have control over them, but they can't deal the damage that the elementals can. In fact, their abilities are almost like some Paramecia types, specifically, the material Paramecias. The only difference is that they can control similar materials in their surrounding environment.

    The main problem lies in the fact that Logia users are insanely overpowered. One Piece was much more interesting before the introduction of such powers. Oda attempted to use Logia as a method of conveying Luffy's determination, which can be noted in Movie 4 [despite it not being canon]:

    Shuraiya: "You have an ability of a Devil Fruit?"
    Luffy: "So what?"

    There is no "cheating" in a battle of life and death.


    Nevertheless, I despise characters that can only be defeated through luck [or destiny, as I despise the concept of fate], such as what was demonstrated with Enel. The only reason Enel was conquered was due to the fact that, luckily, Luffy was composed of rubber.

    About Logias being overpowered: What? You want them nerfed? You want to nerf God?

    Besides, Luffy's gonna rise above the Logias. Aokiji is next.

    Also, consider that fact that Eneru could have easily won by using more metal to pierce Luffy, but no! He had to try to zap Luffy!

    Eneru: LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!111!onewonwan!1lllLL I iz teh 1337 PWN4G3 /\/\45+3r!!1ONEONEONE!!||llLL I h4\/ t3h 008ERL33T L1TNEEN 4BiL4T33LL!11illl||one | wi11z PWn J00 bye s|-|()XORZ XDDDDDDDD

    Luffy: ... *owns Eneru*
    Eneru = Idiot

    And a mangaka must be poetic, that's why theres so much nature reverence in most mangas.

    It was rather "lucky" that Luffy just happened to be around when Eneru started his little rampage, but I don't mind. 'Cause that entire battle had a nice balance of cool and humorus. Especialy when Eneru realized that Luffy wasn't affected by his blasts. His expression was just priceless.

    I would have loved to see a DF that made you able to control plants. Think about how useful that would have been. ^^

    You'd be eating yourself. How nutritious is that?

    Plant logia is nice. Especially when you can cause trees to burst out of people, or turn the world into your personal walkway, or just eat everything because your the master of biology. But then again, your only human, and the most you can do is turn yourself into a tree or create a garden that'll grow by itself, which is still nice.
