First of all, we need to acknowledge that Law and Kid’s achievement against Big Mom is certainly monumental and impressive. In the previous part, although the Straw Hats were completely inferior to Big Mom’s powerful forces, just escaping from her hands was enough to help Luffy increase his bounty to more than 1 billion Belly, showing his influence. terrible influence of the Four Emperors. The fact that Law and Kid temporarily removed Big Mom from the battle shows that the rise of a new generation has been challenging the old generation. But it is not enough to be considered a failure or a collapse of the Yonko system.
In fact, One Piece chapter 1040, although marking the success of Law and Kid, we can easily see that the disparity between the two is still very large. The two Supernovas realize that their attacks aren’t strong enough to make Big Mom fail. Therefore, Law’s plan from the beginning was to completely remove Big Mom from the battlefield and prevent her from recovering for a while, not to defeat her.
Chapter 1040 further makes it clear that while Law and Kid may win this particular battle, they still have a lot of room to grow before they can truly match the Yonko in terms of strength. strong. At the beginning of the chapter, we learn that Big Mom is relatively unscathed from Kid’s electronic cannon attack – further showing that their attacks are only repelling and do some damage. on her, but still not enough to make the female Tu Hoang unconscious.
When she was sent flying to the bottom of the island, and even though she would be buried by a series of rocks due to the impact of the bomb blast, Big Mom confidently asserted that even though she was defeated, she would return soon to revenge. Law and Kid fulfilled their promise to neutralize Big Mom’s threat and prevent her from reaching the roof, giving Luffy a chance to defeat Kaido. That was more than enough for both of them.
This chapter makes it even more clear that the Supernovas (with the exception of Blackbeard) alone are not powerful enough to oppose any of the Yonko, let alone any of the other members of the Yonko. Their tapes are not simple either. Luffy’s (temporary) parity at this point, is actually the result of a series of events that have severely reduced Kaido’s fitness, but he still easily shows his superiority in the past. hand-to-hand collision with Luffy.
So what future for Big Mom?
Big Mom’s reputation and power could be seriously damaged after this defeat, especially when this news is covered by writers like Morgans, which could be the premise for Big Mom to become a big mom. back in the not too distant future. Regarding Big Mom’s current role, when it is confirmed that she lost, it means that Big Mom is unlikely to join the war in Wano, but she can return with a different role, or just was simply saved by her children back to Whole Cake. Based on her past, the next place Big Mom encounters the Straw Hats will most likely be Elbaf, whose role is similar to Crocodile’s before.
Just to be clear, while I do believe Big Mom will clash with the Straw Hats again, I don’t fully believe she’ll be the main antagonist in the Wano arc. Elbaf is said to be one of the most powerful nations in the One Piece world and is possibly home to many powerful warriors capable of holding their own against both the Yonko and the World Government.
Even Wano, with its mighty samurai and impregnable borders, must eventually fall into Kaido’s hands. Elbaf most likely exists a certain force that makes Big Mom jealous, and may also contain a solution to her past. After all, Big Mom herself still has a nice Olin personality, just like when she completely lost her memories. While that doesn’t justify all the evil Big Mom has done, her dream of creating a land where everyone can live in harmony is still what sets Big Mom apart from the rest of the world. The other Four Emperors.
