It’s interesting how Oda depicts the differences between Shanks and Blackbeard
Shanks and Blackbeard are two prominent characters in the popular manga and anime series “One Piece” created by Eiichiro Oda. Here are some key differences between the two characters:
Shanks is portrayed as a calm, composed, and honorable character. He values friendship and is willing to make sacrifices for the greater good. Shanks is known for his charisma and ability to influence others.
Blackbeard, on the other hand, is cunning, ambitious, and ruthless. He is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goals, even if it means betraying and harming others. Blackbeard is portrayed as a more morally ambiguous and antagonistic character.
Shanks is a powerful swordsman and is known for his mastery of Haki, a mysterious power that can be used for various purposes. He is also missing his left arm, which he sacrificed to save Luffy from a Sea King, showcasing his selflessness.
Blackbeard has the ability to wield two Devil Fruit powers simultaneously, a feat previously thought to be impossible. He possesses the powers of the Dark-Dark Fruit (Yami Yami no Mi) and the Tremor-Tremor Fruit (Gura Gura no Mi), granting him control over darkness and the ability to create powerful earthquakes.
Shanks’ crew is completely organized and calm, providing him info.
And they also play fair.
Meanwhile, the Blackbeard Pirates are kinda berserk, they just rush in without a plan, or kinda rely on arrogance, luck and underhanded tricks to achieve what they want.
Shanks acts immediately to protect his crew, even if some of his allies are weak and unreliable.
Meanwhile, Teach doesn’t give a damn even about his officers.
