Why Garp hasn’t told anyone about Sabo being alive?

    I mean come on he should have known that with Sabo being such high figure on the revo army.

    If not Ace and Luffy for reasons at least Dadan.

    PS
    Do you think Sabo visited after getting his memory back Dadan for once?

    Maybe he forgot about him. Maybe he believed Sabo is dead and this one is another random guy named Sabo. Also I don't know what he could have done for this. Why would he tell everybody that Sabo and ace are brothers ????

    Not a good Idea. The same way the revs got spies the same is for the WG. If they found he is related to Dadan they may kidnap her or anything.

    Because Oda didn't know who Sabo is until he decided to stop drawing Ace.

    My head cannon is that before the time skip Sabo was unknown and was laying low with the revos, only after marineford did Sabo start making a name of himself and become known as the right hand man of the revos

    Are we sure that Dadan doesn't know? Why would he tell it to Ace who's about to die? .-. He didn't have occasion to talk with Luffy I think. I mean, he had 2 years ago but we don't know if Sabo was that famous back then.

    I doubt Sabo was famous enough before the MF war.
    Even if that wasn't the case, Garp would just think it's a random ass guy called Sabo. If Sabo was that famous, there's a huge chance that Ace would've heard the name at least once since he knew about Dragon too, yet he didn't act on it, as far as we know. Cause from their point of view, Sabo was dead and any other guy called Sabo would just be another random ass guy with the same name as their dead brother.

    just like tsuru.

    Either he didn’t care much or forgot about him.

    Luffy: Is the Ace you're waiting for Portgas D Ace?

    If reality wasn't enough to tell you that a first name isn't a unique identifier, the above should make it clear.

    Oda wrote the whole Sabo-situation so badly lmao

    The memory-loss on Sabo's part is nice and convenient too.

    How do you all explain the whole S on Ace's tattoo if Sabo is really just a random thing/ something on a whim oda did.

    I think Oda planned Ace's death and Sabo's return a long time ago. after all, one of the biggest themes of one piece is inherited will.

    I remember the huge head cannon that fans had for the scratched out S was that the tattoo artist spelt the name wrong:tupac

    That whole amnesia thing with Sabo was some of Oda's laziest writing. I think he just overlooked the whole Sabo situation until it came time to reintroduce him, otherwise there would have been subtle hints that he was alive beforehand.

    That was my impression as well - I figured it was a goofy part of his character that signaled he was Luffy's brother.

    First name alone doesn't mean much in One Piece, just this arc we already had Luffy ask for clarification for a name and a person sharing the name of Vice Admiral Tsuru. Heck, even face to face Luffy didn't even recognize Sabo immediately. Sabo also only remember Ace because of all the stuff surrounding his death, like newspapers mentioning that Ace and Luffy were brothers and Ace being killed by Sakazuki who's name is literally sake cups.

    Garp told his grandson about his father only recently, he probably didn't even think about Sabo much, that is if Sabo already famous before timeskip.
