    Default name the OP characters based off real people and who these real people were

    Let's make a list of all the characters in OP that Oda based off actual historical figures. I'll start with semi-three I can think of:

    So far:
    Black Beard: Edward Teach
    Zoro: Francois l'Ollonais, and the Mexican Robin Hood, Zorro
    Jango: Michael Jackson
    Bartholomew Kuma: Bartholomew Roberts (AKA Black Bart)
    Crocodile: based LOOSELY off of the stereotypical pirate captain, Hook
    Donquixote Doflamingo: Don Quixote de la Mancha (by name only)
    Usopp: named after Aesop, the fable teller (uso means lie, so it's kind of a portmanteau and pun)
    Franky and Patty: body design based off of the legendary Popeye
    Eneru: based off of the Storm God, Raijin, as well as loose nods to Buddha and Son Goku, the Monkey King
    Baskerville: based off of the 3-headed knight from Monty Python skits
    Bellamy the Hyena: Samuel Bellamy

    Let's make this easy for you:

    Zoro: Francois l'Ollonais, and the Mexican Robin Hood, Zorro
    Whitebeard: Edward Newgate
    Jango: Michael Jackson
    Jiraquille Mihawk: Bartholomew Roberts (AKA Black Bart)
    Crocodile: based LOOSELY off of the stereotypical pirate captain, Hook
    Donquixote Doflamingo: Don Quixote de la Mancha (by name only)
    Usopp: named after Aesop, the fable teller (uso means lie, so it's kind of a portmanteau and pun)
    Franky and Patty: body design based off of the legendary Popeye
    Eneru: based off of the Storm God, Raijin, as well as loose nods to Buddha and Son Goku, the Monkey King
    Baskerville: based off of the 3-headed knight from Monty Python skits
    the Shandoran tribe in general mirrors Midwestern Native American tribes,
    and although I can't confirm it, Saul reminds me of that one cowboy in an old John Wayne movie (Oda has mentioned that American Westerns is his favorite movie genre)

    Sengoku is the name of the period in Japanese history known for it's horrific toture methods, I believe, as well as it's constant civil war.

    Kinda ominous for his motives and goals, eh?

    i would have put the images directly here, but it appears we can't post more than 4 images in one post (and it's even more stupid because for this post i have 3 images and it counted 5 O.o )
    i hate this new layout with a passion >.>

    there is also an image with johny depp for mihawk, but it appears to be edited
    anyway.. :
