Buggy The Clown, a man obsessed with gold, money ect.. He used to be in Gol D. Roger’s crew, and Shanks considered him as a friend. Though could there be something more to Buggy than we thought there would? Why was he on Gol D Roger’s ship? Why is he one of the only pirates we see who is obsessed with money?
You see, in my opinion I think Buggy is based off The Joker from Batman. I think that he must’ve had someone, a family, a friend, or something worth protecting to him, that he wanted to provide money for. Whomever the important thing was, them/he/she must’ve passed away due to Buggy being poor.
Joker’s Back Story(http://batman.wikia.com/wiki/The_Joker)
Though many have been related, a definitive history of the Joker has never been established in the comics, and his true name has never been confirmed. The most widely cited back-story can be seen in Alan Moore‘s The Killing Joke. It depicts him as originally being an engineer at a chemical plant who quit his job to pursue his dream of being a stand-up comedian, only to fail miserably. Desperate to support his pregnant wife,Jeannie, the man agrees to help two criminals break into the plant where he was formerly employed. In this version of the story, the Red Hood persona is given to the inside man of every job (thus it is never the same man twice); this makes the inside man appear to be the leader, allowing the two ring-leaders to escape. During the planning, police contact him and inform him that his wife and unborn child have died in a household accident.
Stricken with grief, he attempts to back out of the plan, but the criminals strong-arm him into keeping his promise. As soon as they enter the plant, however, they are immediately caught by security and a fatal shoot-out ensues, in which the two criminals are killed. As he tries to escape, he is confronted by Batman, who is investigating the disturbance. Terrified, the engineer leaps over a rail and plummets into a vat of chemicals. When he surfaces in the nearby reservoir, he removes the hood and sees his reflection: bleached chalk-white skin, ruby-red lips, and emerald green hair. These events, coupled with his other misfortunes that day, drive the engineer through the massive personality shift that results in the birth of the Joker.
What kind of name is Buggy? And where is his last name? His real name is probably means something, Gol D. Roger probably took him in the crew and changed his name for the Buggy’s sake. Or Buggy changed it. Buggy could’ve had amnesia and forgotten who he was… there are many possible explanations for this. He could be related to Joy Boy, or at least someone important. Joker’s alias was Jack. John is another name for Jack. So, Captain John could indeed be Buggy/related to Buggy.
I barely have evidence as of yet to prove Buggy is more important than he looks, but I want to hear your opinions on this question.
“If Buggy IS/WAS important to the One Piece Series, what do you think would make him important? And what role would he play?”
*Theory by Luck Gandor
I also think the same, the character “Buggy” couldn’t be as simple as we think. There must be a story before he join the Gol D Roger’s crew. Your theory may be true because he is obsessed with money but I think this will convert into revenge when he found out what really happened to his beloved one’s. this is mu upgrade to your theory.. lol.
i think buggy’s powers are very powerfull because if he can split his body to many pieces than he can make it 1000 and more pieces and use armament haki and throw his body’s pieces at very high speed to pierce his enemy’s body. it can be very powerfull even if his devil fruit seems weak , it’s the same with luffy and the gomu gomu nomi , the devil fruit itself is weak but he use it in a creative way
You are right
Biggest reason is his so strong presence as yet
Though there is no sign of other villains of his time
Besides he is the favourite villain of Oda sensei
Why else would he be kept in the plot for so long
Yes totally agree. He couldn’t be the first pirate Luffy defeats, (i think) and keep showing up again and again, if he wasn’t somehow extremely important in the future. Probably going to be a big name in the New World. Luffy takes Kaido’s spot and he takes Big Mam’s spot, or vise versa, even though Luffy defeats them both himself.
