    Pretty much the title. Like, for example, I have basically three friends who also love One Piece, and they are solidly wrong about so many things like " Oh yeah, Vice Admiral holds respect to their title " and I'm like " At this point, VA = Fodder canon to Luffy m8", and the reason why of that is because I participate in this forum, and even being as toxic as it is, it opens your mind to some things, some things that if you are just reading OP by yourself and does not participate in discussions you're never think about, and I'm not even saying "the casuals", I'm saying hardcore OP fans that only do not go to forums like this to discuss.

    I'll share mine first:

    - I thought Garp was a fucking retarded, weak as fuck marine. It never clicked to me before joining the OL that Garp is the closest marines ever got to fucking Roger level, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS MENTIONED SEVERAL TIMES, I thought that it was like, you know, more of a gag than an indication of power, like Team Rocket(As far as I know at least, I'm no Pokemon fan, at all) is clearly very inferior to Ash, and keep running on them, and I thought it was more of a gag than being fucking battles to almost death. And that scene of Luffy punching Garp in MF was like the confirmation to me that Garp was weak.
    - I always thought that there was a steady shichibukai level. Like Mihawk = Moria = Crocodile = Jinbe, etc.

    So, I shared my most shameless things, be honest and share yours, because unless you've been here forever, you gotta have some.

    Edit: This is a misconceptions thread, not something like theories that every body knew and you didn't before joining OL(Like Lola being BM's daughter), or things that people in OL noted to you and you didn't notice that were in the manga itself(Like Absalom's ship in Kid-Apoo-Hawkins scene), I'm talking about misconceptions that were pretty obvious, but your eyes and thought became "alienated" and "blind".

    I used to think the same thing actually.

    I thought Vice Admirals were all strong. Turns out none of them are.:gglife

    I also used to think all the whitebeard commanders were on par with each other. During the marineford arc I remember some topic asking which of the commanders had the same growth rate as Luffy and then me being teased after I said this guy might be on par



    oh young marc :gglife

    I haven't followed One Piece to that degree before joining OL.

    But i can list a few points of me being wrong during my time here.


    I used to think that WB could take on all 3 Admirals.

    I used to think that Ace had no Haki till Oda released the novel.

    I used to think that noone would be able to take on Vergo in a one on one at PH.

    I used to believe that Zoro could defeat Lucci at EL.

    I thought Zoro was about to meet Mihawk again and defeat him when they were chasing the sea train and instead he met Cpt. T-Bone.

    :kobeha

    I used to think that Magellan was one of the strongest characters in One Piece because of his performance.


    Will add more when i remember the good old times.

    Count me in Magellan as Admiral level guy too. He looked too overpowered guy when i read arc for the first time.
    I actually used to believe Zoro=Sanji before joining the forum. Only afterwards i realized that M3 is actually Luffy > Zoro > Sanji with no equals in there.

    I was gonna criticize to "How could you conceivably think that ?" but then I reminded myself that I thought Garp was canon fodder.

    This thread is no place for judgement. Only frowns and good laughs.

    I had no idea how popular is Zoro. I thought he's in same "tier" with Franky, Sanji, Chopper and rest of them in terms of popularity. This is the first place where I saw Zoro > Luffy posts.

    But "while watching for the first time":

    I though that Smoker and Ace are equally strong in Alabasta.
    That Robin was 2nd strongest SHP prior to Enies Lobby (she one-shoted all of them twice).
    That anyone who can use Soru is op as hell.
    That Enel has the best CoO in the series and is as strong as Aokiji and was defeated due to nerf (some guys still believe in this one).
    I thought that all/most of SHP will eat Devil Fruits.
    I knew that they will have archeologist, so i thought that Vivi will be one (she's princess, she should know about treasures...?).
    Somehow I thought that Arlong was Shichibukai, not Jinbei.
    I though that Garp was average Vice-Admiral in terms of power.

    A lot of this, but I don't remember many, many wrong predictions/believes.

    I didn't think she was 2nd strongest, but definitely thought she was on par with the M3.

    Her being Croc's right hand didn't help.

    Although to be fair, I guess Oda did nerf her majorly.

    Now, didn't we all ?

    Also, this thread is more about misconceptions than failed theories. Like something as dumb as "Garp being fodder canon " or "Magellan = Admiral level".

    This was before haki so I thought Smoker tied with Ace because of their devil fruits.

    I also thought the average Yonko was weaker than the admiral because all the admirals were clowning whitebeard and this dude was the strongest yonko even in his shit condition.

    Before joining the OL, I admit i was one of those guys that genuinely believed all the Supernova were yonkou commander level. When I got here I got negged into oblivion saying Luffy could take Jozu and give Admirals the same amount of difficulty.

    I could not be more wrong about OL infact I was always right. The only times I were wrong was Aokiji vs Akainu. Never thought Akainu could beat Aokiji but till this day we don't know the details to that fight.

    oh that Smoker thread in the battledome reminded me of one.

    Before I joined I was on the team that thought Smoker was gonna be the Garp for Luffy. Then I joined and saw a lot of cats saying if Luffy could hit Smoker he wouldn't be a problem. Years later and now that fact just keeping growing painfully in my brain like a damn irremovable tumor.

    Well, technically it's a theory, and technically you're still not wrong.

    But yeah, Smoker's canon fodder right now, damn.

    Smoker still is the Garp for Luffy, if no one else. Coby certainly isn't lol, as fast as he's growing, he's still a captain, exactly where Smoker was two years ago.

    Oda is going to make Smoker get a lot stronger especially since he still aims to chase down Luffy to the end of the seas.

    Yeah I actually believe that as well. Smoker got 1 arc that mainly served to hype the Doflamingo family and Law but he won´t be weak forever so he will prob come back with buffed up haki and awakening.

    OT what I believed:

    - Luffy is and was always vastly superior to Zoro
    - Arlong is stronger than zoro
    - Don Krieg is stronger than Mihawk
    - Crocodile is one of the strongest shichibukai and him, G2 Luffy and Lucci could beat the shit out of Mihawk
    - Doflamingo uses telekinesis to control minds
    - Kizaru is the strongest admiral and a bad matchup for Whitebeard
    - Kizaru will become fleet admiral
    - Robin could beat Sanji based on her bounty
    - Ace is admiral level and Marco stronger than Aokiji because he kicked him away
    - Sanji won´t learn haki
    - cutting steel and armament haki are the same
    - Prime ray is barely equal to Kizaru
    - Whitebeard can only fight while sitting on his chair (lmao)
    - Blackbeard´s fruit is impossible to counter
    - Lucci is stronger than Vice admirals
    - noone including Ace is ever going to die
    - Luffy is going to fight Ace and Whitebeard for Pk title

    Well, don't know about "vastly superior", but he always was and is superior to Zoro. And depends on, if you're talking about Arlong as in Arlong Park arc. vs Arlong Park arc. Zoro (In 100% condition), then Arlong actually wins. Anything other than that Zoro stomps Arlong's ass to hell and back.

    These ones don't count. Because they are predictions, not misconception. If I have the prediction that BB has the Cerberus fruit and it ends up that it's not that at all, it's not a misconception, just a wrong prediction. Wrong misconceptions are about things that are in the manga and we just didn't get it until we joined here.
