Who do you think will be the Yonkos of the next generation? I don’t know at what point in time this’ll happen, but surely there will be more Emperors after all the current ones kick the bucket, so who, why, and how?
Monkey D. Luffy – I don’t think he wants to be an Emperor nor cares, but with him protecting his allies and gaining territory, it’s seemingly inevitable. Also being Pirate King should just inherently make you an Emperor in my eyes. Essentially he’d be the replacement for Shanks.
Capone Bege – This one is a very biased opinion, so don’t hate me please lol. Bege, to me, would be the perfect replacement for Big Mom. He’s got “Big Father” as his epithet, he kills opposition, plays pretty smart, and his evil fruit would basically make him a walking Army of his future half Charlotte offspring. It’d be like his impenetrable Whole Cake Island. He’s a good family man as well. He’d be really hard to assassinate with his level of protection and how durable Big Father is. But before that, my guy Bege needs to work on his Haki and 1v1 fights to really take the mantle.
Eustass Kid – He’s a legitimate pirate, he’s already a “Conquerer” and I don’t mean just his haki, he behaves like an Emperor already and will probably be comparable to Shiki in a lot of ways. Replacement for Blackbeard I guess.
Trafalgar D. Water Law – I feel a Whitebeard vibe from him. He has respect for the future pirate king, yet doesn’t desire the One Piece or the mantle. He doesn’t want the whole family thing like Whitebeard though. He’s like a Shanks/Whitebeard mash up to me. Chilling on an island with his crew, I doubt he’d be into the whole territory concept. He’d be a pseudo Whitebeard replacement.
I just don’t see any other characters we know suitable for these positions quite like the ones I picked, so on that note, who are your picks for the future Yonkos and why?
