Why has Oda put all characters so close to each other?

    It's not Oda's usual style to place all characters densely packed together in a small place.

    At present moment, Law could easily create a room large enough to swap all souls and create chaos.

    I'm actually worried what kind of asspuls Oda will use to keep these guys from joining the attack.

    All the top dogs (Kaido, Big Mom, Calamities) are in the same room.
    Luffy, Kid, Zoro, Law, they are super close. Flying Six can hold off a couple of them at most. Hopefully no PIS of fodder runarounds to delay the big battle.

    Something will happen to spread them all apart like it does in every arc. Half of the scabbards and Kaido are already falling down to the outside of the mansion and one or two of the F6 will probably intercept Yamato and Luffy to keep them from reching Kaido.

    Onigashima is more huge than people think, and it takes too much stamina for Law to pull off that hax.

    When fight starts, people would be punching and kicking each other to other Islands. I already see Luffy managing to punch Kaido so hard that he leaves Onishigma and lands in Wano. Or other way out. Whatever works.
    One Piece character are ridiculously fast and can cover insane amount of distance even in second so I am not that worried about close proximity yet.

    To minimise the panel time. Imagine how long it would take to spread them all out and give them all unique and meaningful fights. Oda writing himself into a corner for having this much characters to develop.

    They have to be close to jump in the right moment. For example to save remaining Scabbards from death or something.

    Akainu is going to nuke Onigashima.

    One Piece ends in 5 seconds.

    soul switch is reserved purely either for gag moments

    or maybe some shockingt scene/revelation with Imu later

    Because there is a execution and Oda needs a reason to make the main characters run into the antagonists they are supposed to fight. Like if say Queen was on the other side of the map and Momonosuke +Kaido are in the room they are in right now... Why would Sanji ever bother to run to Queen? Lol

    Exactly, as all crazy hax abilities who would ruin everything outside gags.
    That's why Doflamingo didn't even attempt to send Sugar to neg diff Kaido, or Bonney turn Blackbeard into a baby, or Tsuru put Whitebeard in the clothesline drying, etc.

    They are only used for either gag or symbolic purposes and never "actual fights".

    What if Kaido's plan to move Onigashima to Wano is meant to be taken literally, and the island has more than just the skull, but also a full skeletal body that will get up and walk towards the mainland? This would work as the usual Big Impending Threat that almost every arc has, and would also make Onigashima bigger.

    We've already seen one of the biggest asspulls: Marco

    Dude is a legit wildcard that would have considerably increased the chances of success on the attack on Kaido and co due to his power level and abilities yet Oda had him go sight seeing just as the Scabbards where about to initiate their attack.

    Marineford?

    There's probably some condition for that to happen because law didn't use it again after PH

    Why would he, he's all about the body. And he has better chances with Big Mom personality than Nami. Big Mom has dozens of kids and husbands so it's not exactly inaccessible territory... And she loves his cakes.

    Though Nami being in BM body, she'd be the one to stay with the crew.

    That'd be a MASSIVE power upgrade for the crew, especially as she can lure Zeus back again

    Cause the scabbards are essentially a singular enemy for someone like Kaido.
