Marshall D. Teach often known as names Blackbeard (Black beard), is the captain of the pirate crew Black beard. Blackbeard used to be a former member of the Whitebeard Pirates Black beard Known for being very strong, this has been proven both in the past and present.
In the past, when the Devil Fruit’s powers were not available, the power of Black beard was also very hegemony, he was the captain of the 2nd division of the Whitebeard Pirates before Ace took over that position, even the 3-striped scar on the left eye of the Four Emperor Shanks
And now he is one of the 4 Four Kings in the New World, not only that makes him the most special is to have the power of 2 Devil Fruits at the same time.
However, not only possesses superior power Black beard also known as an extremely intelligent person with extensive knowledge. This has been proved through the following 4 arguments:
1. SBS One Piece episode 82 reveals our hobbies Black beard is historical research
Every SBS One Piece episode brings a lot of interesting answers from Oda. And in episode 82 when asked about the hobbies of the worst Generation members, Oda talked about it Black beard is like gambling and studying history.
This is surprising, isn’t it? A human like Black beard has such an elegant hobby. It seems that this hobby stems from the fact that he wants to learn about everything in the world to be able to carry out his mastery.
2. SBS One Piece episode 88 revealed that Black beard If he doesn’t become a pirate, he will be an archaeologist
After episode 82 revealed his hobby Black beard In episode 88 of SBS, someone asked Oda about what the worst Generation of People would do if they were in the real world. And instead of becoming a real pirate, then Blackbeard is said to become an archaeologist.
This seems to implicitly assert Black beard With extensive knowledge of history, he is knowledgeable and able to analyze these events. That’s why it is possible to be an Archaeologist.
3. Black beard likes to read, as evidenced by recognizing the shape of the Devil Fruit Yami Yami no Mi
Black beard love history and will become a real-life archaeologist. However, this is not shown in the story of One Piece.
But there were moments to show Black beard Knowledge of the Devil Fruit. It was then that he was able to recognize the Yami Yami no Mi and killed Thatch, his teammate, to steal it. He may have read a lot of books before and memorized the shape and knew the power of this Devil Fruit.
4. Black beard from an anonymous pirate who became Tu Hoang
Right from the beginning Black beard proved himself to be a cunning and calculating mind. This is because he waited two decades on the Moby Dick and Whitebeard just to get the Yami Yami no Mi. Although the waiting time was quite long, the fact proved that he had succeeded in his plan.
His mind was so cunning that he was able to deceive both the marines and the world government by taking the position of That Vu Hai, from which he had the right to go through the gates of Justice to enter the Impel Down prison. He then freed the level 6 prisoners here and recruited into his pirate crew. After that, he resigned and said that he did not need that position anymore and expanded his power to become a Tu Hoang. This indicates Black beard is one of the sharpest and smartest characters in One Piece.
