In One Piece the reputation of a Four Emperor often makes others afraid. Shanks Red hair is no exception. Hitherto, Shanks was able to intimidate various parties against him, including the Navy.
Here are three moments the navy suffered Shanks Threat:
1. Stop the incident at Marineford
In chapter 579, the situation in Marineford was very chaotic even though Portgas D. Ace and Whitebeard were sacrificed.
Blackbeard tested the power of the Gura Gura no Mi after capturing it, shaking Marineford and the surrounding ocean. Blackbeard wasn’t even afraid of Sengoku and Garp, confidently asking: “Do you think you can stop me?”. He even declared that the era of Whitebeard was over, and that Garp and Sengoku were obsolete at that time.
The Marines and Whitebeard’s group are still fighting. Koby begged to stop the fight but was nearly killed by Sakazuki. Afterward Shanks arrive.
The navy continues to act in chapter 580. Kuzan tries to freeze the sea surface to stop Law’s submarine, Kizaru moves again (after being held at gunpoint in chapter 579) then tries to shoot Law’s submarine with Yasakani no Magatama technique.
But then the conflict ended thanks to the declaration of Shanks . Blackbeard retreated, the navy and Whitebeard’s crew stopped fighting, and even fierce men like Sakazuki did not continue to act.
Obviously, this is the time when headquarters and navy soldiers suffer Shanks threaten.
2. Caused Admiral Ryokugyu to retreat in chapter 1055
Admiral Ryokugyu arrived in Wano, despite Admiral Sakazuki’s order not to in chapter 1052.
When Ryokugyu fought Momonosuke, some members of the Nine Red Scabbards, and Yamato near Hoa Do, the admiral felt threatened by his Conqueror’s Haki. Shanks in the area off the coast of Wano Country, so there was a truce and withdrawal.
Although Ryokugyu is an admiral level warrior, under the threat of Shanks still made him retreat. This makes fans quite satisfied.
3. Force Kizaru, Fujitora and the Marines to Elegia to retreat
This is a breakdown One Piece Film: Red and it is not considered official. However, it’s still interesting.
There’s a moment in the movie, Shanks used his Conqueror Haki on the Marines. In the end, Kizaru and Fujitora decided to retreat. If the navy confronted the Red Hair group, the civilians in Elegia at that time would also be victims.
What’s interesting is that Kizaru sweats after Shanks unleashing Conqueror’s Haki. It shows that even a veteran admiral like Kizaru can suffer Shanks threatening.
