Benn Beckman was the first member of the Red Hair Pirates. He first met Shanks in the village of Foosha, Luffy’s home town. The author Oda once revealed that Beckman is the owner of the highest IQ of East Blue and so strong that he can fight the Admiral alone.
However, until now the true strength and role of this character has not been revealed, it is still a “mystery” like the mighty Captain Shanks himself. So many people have thought that with high IQ and great strength can the role of Benn Beckman in Redhead is not simply a vice captain.
So what exactly is your role in Redhead?
As we have seen Captain Kuro in East Blue is famous for his strategic ability. With an IQ higher than Kuro, Beckman can also be a good strategist of Red Hair.
Because Shanks’s crew operates in the New World, it is definitely a good idea to have a smart and smart person who can develop strategies to help the crew grow and avoid many troubles.
2. The Navigator?
Perhaps One Piece fans will be no stranger to the concept of a navigator, this is the “guideline” of the whole team, navigate navigation, and anticipate any potential dangers. To become a navigator, they must be proficient at using tools such as maps, charts, compasses, even able to draw maps of the places they have recently visited.
Contrary to the peaceful weather in 4 seas, the weather in Dai Hai Trinh is very harsh, the life of a pirate crew depends largely on the sensitivity of the flowers. The pilot’s decision could lead his entire crew to a place where the weather was stable or to death.
With a higher IQ than the Nami navigator of the Straw Hat crew Beckman could also be the navigator of Red Hair. Compared to Yasopp or Lucky Roux, Beckman is actually more suitable
3. Expert advice?
In the world of One Piece, there are characters who are extremely intelligent but not wise, such as Caesar Clown. Therefore, these people are often not assigned to advise on important jobs.
However, on episode 8 of SBS, Oda explained that Beckman assisted Shanks with extraordinary strength and intelligence. He added that Beckman is very smart, and he himself always appears calm even when his captain is panicking.
Therefore, it is understandable that Beckman is a Red Hair consultant. He is the one who gives advice on what Shanks should do to make better decisions. And this is really one of the roles of a sub-leader of the Tu Hoang.
Doctors are also one of the most important positions in the pirate crew, and they are very intelligent people with an understanding. And in Red Hair tape, we haven’t seen any suitable characters for this position.
With his high IQ, Beckman can show that he is also a doctor in Shanks tape.
5. Can archaeologists read Poneglyph?
One reason why finding Laugh Tale Island is so difficult is that the instructions are written in a language many people don’t understand. With a high IQ, can Beckman secretly be among those who can understand or translate Poneglyph?
And maybe Shanks himself knew this so he was very comfortable on his journey. We also see in the past that Shanks had intended to go to Laugh Tale after seeing that Roger’s efforts had not been completed.
