When Shank sees mihawk he asks if mihawk is ther 4 a match. Also world government people freaked out when they found out that whitebeard and shanks were gonna have a meetin. Also usopp says when luffy first meet him "Red-Hair Shanks? You know that great pirate?" so shanks is must be good
its because shanks had red hair.pirates in the grandline saw his marvelous red hair and named him one of the four kings
Nah it's cause they decided they need a nice guy to be one of the four emperors just to mess with the idea that pirates are evil.
because shanks is absolute badass.
i just notice that shanks crew are similar to luffy's crew (some of them)
and i think that he might be one of the emporor... he just love to keep his cool
i think he's waiting almost impatiently for luffy to find him, so that he can have a showdown
Since the first few chapters where we saw Shanks for the first time, it was clear that he'd be one of the strongest characters in the manga.
That's just how it is.
I always thought he (and whitebeard) will be shichibukai too.
But being one of the four emperors is even better since they are not lackeys of the WG.
In the end when Ruffy and Shanks will meet again everything could happen
"You've become a great pirate, Ruffy. Now let's fight"
"You've become a great pirate, Ruffy. Let the hugging begin"
Both will be good, I guess *crosses his fingers for fighting*
I just hope Ruffy will keep the strawhat. He needs it.
Indeed. It won't be Straw Hat Luffy if he loses the Straw Hat.
It'll be Red Shirt Luffy then.
well he could get a new one that looks the same but i hopes tha the keeps it
I think he has the devil fruits power:p otherwise he wouldnt be so strong
without his arm:P
You know why Shanks is an Emperor?
He got his arm fucking bitten off.
Did he flinch? Cry? Gasp, even?
Hell no. He blew it off. "Arm? Pff, what's an arm mean to me compared to you?" (Not direct quote, but the overal feeling)
Shanks is made of pie and win.
