    Why do the yonks want to own so many territories?

    You can only be on 1 island at a time anyways. Why bother owning so many?

    So far only Big Mom makes sense, because she gets ingredients for her cake from different islands that she owns.


    Blackbeard - why did he take over WB territory? What's the point? Is it basically just a dick-measuring contest between him and Marco?

    Shanks - this guy just wants to party. Why bother owning and maintaining territories? He also seems to like to sneak off to East Blue sometimes to fuck Makino. So why own real estate in the NW?

    Kaido - he likes to go off on his own all the time. Such a nomadic lifestyle doesn't explain why he bother taking over countries or making alliances with people like Shogun etc.

    thoughts?

    Because they are at war with each other and want to conquer whole NW? I mean what would be the point of staying on one island?

    Wouldn't be nicer to be able to travel to your favorite destinations without need to fight every time?

    Ignore saves the day.

    Of course they do, they pick up shit like psychology, philosophy and art, because they can't finish any decent major. They can't contribute to society in any way. Freeloaders, nothing else.

    No swordsmen can beat Doffy. The guy can stitch his internal organs after taking a Counter Shock hit, sword wounds are a piece of cake for him. Vista's Mihawk level Haki and base stats would probably push Doffy to high-difficulty though.

    No swordsmen can beat Doffy with a sword. Plain and simple. It's same like beating Buggy with a sword or Jozu with a sword. It's impossible, use your brain.

    More territory means more power, influence, control, and places to kick back and lay low. All of which are important in competing as a big name on the seas.

    this is probably the closest to the truth. Tribute $$$

    seriously Shanks goes to East Blue all the time and he doesn't even own that land, so he clearly doesn't care about the number of islands he owns

    Kaido doesn't even stay on his own lands, he just drifts off by himself

    It's easier just to protect whichever island you are on, instead of spreading thin to protect lots of real estate that has basically no real value...

    except Power is universally determined by how stronk your crew is, not by the number of real estates you have

    people won't fear Shanks more if he owns 6 islands instead of just 5

    just think of it like being a gangsta in a city, although you have no real practical use for a street full of novelty shops operated by immigrant owners, no other gang is going to take you seriously if all you have is a single alley way to your name. You basically have no street cred, or rather island cred.

    tbh, I could see Shanks only setting up shop on islands that produce his favorite sakes

    I don't think GP is talking about personal power, but rather political power or the likes. Think of it as a business, more islands (colonies ) means more connections, manpower, resources, prestige, technology, etc. If you're a big shot like a Yonko, it's mistake to just be cool with your own little island in a big and tumultuous sea like the New World, you always gotta grow and stay ahead of the competition.

    because they want that oil

    why do you think the chonks want to occupy the south chona sea?

    Same reason real life businessmen buy multiple properties or why governments try and inject their claws into as many lands as possible. The more land you have the more influence and resources at your disposal.

    real estates = money

    Shanks has tons of islands and bitches
    Mihawk has 1 castle and monkeys

    I don't think you understand what freedom is

    Shanks is under surveillance by the Marines 24/7. They have cameras planted up his asshole, the 5 elders have a live camera feed

    Also he needs to spend 24/7 worrying about his lands being conquered by other Yonks or the WG.

    If he was smart he'd just hang out in East Blue. Same with Kaido. Don't know what brain cancer drove them to want to participate in the NW real estate bubble

    This doesn't make sense. In One Piece the strength of your crew is everything.

    They literally gain zero power by owning more islands with citizens to protect. If anything it makes them more spread out and weaker.

    Look at Mihawk and how pathetic he is in that monkey island, no people no power no technology in it. Mihawk is a scrub.

    Look how flashy and powerful Yonko are with a lot of territories and a lot of power.

    Mihawk has a fancy castle + fine wine + Perona's fine ass

    Shanks has shitty camp-sites + some shitty islands + Lucky Roo's moobs
