    Do it Yourself! Dressrosa!

    In honor of @Rise-Chan and upon his request, I thought of creating a thread to discuss Dressrosa as a whole. With one particular extra.
    What would you do to make Dressrosa better?

    Dressrosa is widely acclaimed by the fans to be a long, dragged out arc, and for many that took away some excitement and magic that could be there, and that it could contribute to make Dressrosa one of the greatest arcs in One Piece thus far.

    So, what would you do to improve it?

    What would you remove? Why?
    What would you change?
    Think you know about powerscaling?
    Then come to the Tier List Thread and prove it!!

    Honestly, the more I think about it, other than maybe making a few bits go by or end faster, nothing.

    You mentioned getting rid of the Colosseum, but Luffy needs that so he could have all his followers for the bigger fights to come

    Spoiler!

    Luffy should have fought Burgess while Sabo fought Doflamingo, while Fujitora arrives last minute to defeat and capture strong victors (like Sabo). Big Mom factor would come after all the Strawhats leave Dressrosa, meaning that the Sunny Team would've been on Dressrosa and had good feats. Kaido could send Jack or another commander to Dressrosa to assist Doflamingo in protecting the SMILEs. Less coverage of new allies would be helpful (except that if Cavendish, Bartolomeo and Sai since only those three represent the necessary powerful allies).

    all of this can be done in 50-60 chapters.

    From the top of my head, I have two complaints.

    The 1st one is the time when Luffy reached Doffy for the first time, but was simply kicked out of the palace. That was suuuper annoying and it lead to a huge number of chapters that were used for Luffy to reach Doffy again.

    The 2nd one is the chapters between Luffy's G4 running out and Doffy's ultimate KO. Those seemed like the ultimate dragging fest that was not exactly necessary.

    the second one was necessary to show G4 has time limits and that a G3/G4 combo was needed to win

    But would he? Those gladiators followed him mainly because of Usopp. They had a debt to pay Usopp, not because of Luffy knocking their heads in.

    A big bunch of the arc was stalled because of the Colosseum. That could have been a side thing, and later the gladiators would show up, wanting to repay the debt to Usopp and getting their focus against Donquixote Executives.

    It's not like they showed extraordinary things on the Colosseum that they couldn't have shown while fighting the executives.

    Plus, the whole Law vs Issho vs Doflamingo was a waste of time. It was just filler. Law could have his fight against Doflamingo on the bridge only and that would be it, no need to make him lose 3 times against Doflamingo. We get it, he's strong.
    And we get it, Issho can summon meteors.

    can't wait
    This is soooo further from the plot tho but if Issho captured Sabo, you think Luffy wouldn't try to break him out?

    but yes, some allies were a bit dispensable, altho many should prove necessary in the future.

    Ah, that was a good one! Yeah, that was just in order to Luffy fight Bellamy again and Law fight Doflamingo ... again. Did we really need this rematches?

    2nd one ... yeah, if Oda wanted to give it 10 minutes to show Doflamingo doesn't go down that easily, then he could have at least shown more from Burgess vs Sabo in the meantime

    Yeah. She had NO value going. Honestly her being there was to set up the Diamante confrontation and give Diamante a temporary handicap for drama. Give the key to Robin or Bartolomeo and it shaves a chapter or two.
