Again in chapter 1079, we noticed a Blackbeard pirate ship approaching Egghead Island. For the final 35+ chapters, followers had been left to ponder which members had been aboard this ship and their targets as nicely.

Lastly, within the newest manga chapter 1107 (launched on February 18, 2024), we be taught that Catarina Devon and Van Augur are the 2 Titanic captains who launched into a mission to the futuristic island. Inadvertently, Luffy made their mission loads simpler to finish as nicely.

On this chapter, Luffy, in his Gear 5 kind, used a brand-new Booming Daybreak Gatling assault in opposition to St. Saturn and his punches hit so arduous that Saturn went flying. That is after we noticed each Van Augur and Catarina reveal their presence on the island and loom over an off-balance Saturn. They obtained to see one of many 5 Elders in One Piece and that too in his demonic kind.

Blackbeard Pirates Crew Members Meet St. Saturn

Now, this offered a uncommon alternative to take a win again house for the Blackbeard Pirates, and so they did in order nicely.

Catarina and Van Augur hit the jackpot already by finishing their assigned mission as rapidly as potential. Nevertheless, Catarina was astonished to see the elder’s demonic look. Therefore, with out losing any breath, she rapidly touched one of many elder’s spider legs.

In case you haven’t guessed already why she did that, I consider you want a recap of Catarina’s satan powers. She has the powers of the Inu Inu no Mi, Mannequin: Kyubi no Kitsune satan fruit, which allows her to remodel and impersonate anybody she touches. That is such a loopy energy to be within the palms of an individual who was generally known as essentially the most lethal feminine pirate imprisoned on the earth of One Piece.

So, by touching St. Saturn, she basically can impersonate one of many 5 Elders now. Sounds, nicely, loopy, proper? The Blackbeard pirate crew members then had a quick chit-chat with Saturn about how Blackbeard comes from a particular lineage and what their crew’s major objective is.

After efficiently stealing the looks of an Elder that they may use anytime, the duo deemed their mission profitable and retreated when the Elder tried to assault. On their method house, they met with Caribou, which is one other story to look out for.

For now, Catarina being able to impersonate one of many 5 Elders is such an enormous win within the books of Blackbeard Pirates and for the followers of Kurohige as nicely. We are able to’t wait to see the ruckus they trigger with Catarina’s latest addition to her impersonation catalog.

So, how do you suppose the Blackbeard Pirates will use this sooner or later? Tell us your opinion within the feedback beneath.
