    I've been thinking and I really don't see any major plot point for Mihawk other than being an adversary for Zoro or Shillew. Potentially in the final war or before it.
    He really is a mysterious character and there has not been any many plot-lines linked to him. I don't feel as if abolishment of the schibukai would have a big impact on character, as he is a loner regardless. The only other thing that comes to mind is perhaps in Wano we get some revelation of another importance he may have. Though Wano is looking like a clusterfuck as it is.

    Do you think he could play a more integral role in the story, if so what could it be?

    This.

    Blackbeard Pirates consist of 11 core crew members (not counting Stronger). Shanks currently has 9 core crew members under his command, so he still needs one more to equalize BB's in numbers.

    He can't be an EoS opponent for Zoro after lecturing him on how to use sword and Haki. That's lame.

    Shiryu will kill him, that's the only legit scenario for a guy like him.

    Yonko = EoS opponent for Luffy.
    Yonko FM = EoS opponent for Zoro / Sanji.

    I don't see why Mihawk stands above them even if he is an EoS opponent. If Luffy fights Whitebeard, Zoro needs to fight with Marco who is a Yonko FM.

    The pirate kings FM is a special FM. Zoro will be younko level end of series, and Luffy will be pirate king level which is above younko level. Since Mihawk is regarded as younko level, and zoro has to surpass mihawk to achieve his dream, then that equates to zoro being younko level. Simple.

    Are you following this? People say Mihawk is Yonko level because he is an EoS opponent for Zoro. And I said that doesn't make Mihawk Yonko level since Zoro's Eos Opponent will be a Yonko FM. Unless you think Blackbeard will become PK and Shiryu will become PK's right hand, that's an another scenario.

    Luffy will surpass Yonko level and Zoro / Sanji will surpass Yonko FM level. Zoro or Sanji doesn't need to defeat Yonko level opponents, that's Luffy's job.

    Mihawk has 3 things putting him on at least Emperor Level. Only one of those is being Zoro's EoS opponent.
    Heck this chapter may have added a fourth

    It'd be interesting to see how Kuzan factors into all this and whether he'd get involved in the Shanks vs Teach clash (assuming it does happen).

    Maybe he's the guy that Mihawk has to fight?

    Not every charcter has or needs a deep role.

    He is there for Zoro to cut in half simple as that.

    To assume Mihawk doesn't have a role.is retarded.

    Oda made it very clear he has a storyline related to Shanks and to Zoro.

    It might not be some deep role but its deep.

    Mihawk's role is to die alongside Shanks fighting against BB pirates and be both avenged and surpassed by Zoro. From a plot perspective, Zoro vs Mihawk for Zoro's final fight would be too predictable with too little at stake to be interesting. Zoro directly fighting Mihawk isn't the only way to get the WSS title.

    It seems ironic to throw out "too predictable" as an argument in the same post that you claim Shanks is dying to the Blackbeard Pirates.

    Yeah so?
    Never said Shanks dying to BB isn't predictable. The difference is, being too predictable isn't the only problem with Mihawk VS Zoro as Zoro's final fight as I already mentioned.

    I think Mihawk was supposed to be a major player but the Shichibukai became redundant with the Admirals and Yonkou running the show later in the series. Now he's basically Zoro's glorified sub-plot.

    Shanks and Zoro give Mihawk existence purpose. To a small extent Ryumma since as the OLer DonQuixote Doflamingo posted he was WSS who became WSM. However, Mihawk can come through if 1. We learn of Kuraigana Island's civil war & what it has to do with him 2. We learn about those cross bandages he, Doflamingo and Blueno share. Otherwise he's just another strong man with a sword.

    Being Zoro's EoS opponent doesn't make him Yonko level, it makes him Yonko FM level.

    What's the other two?
