Warning: SPOILERS for Chapter #1082 of One PieceA piece just surprised fans by completely rewriting Buggy the clown, one of the series’ earliest and most famous villains and the current leader of the Cross Guild group.

In chapter #1082 of One Piece, readers catch up on the latest happenings in the Cross Guild, an organization created by Mihawk and Crocodile that uses Buggy as a charismatic frontrunner.

The chapter reveals that the reason why Buggy hates Shanks so much is not – as it has been implied until now – that he is jealous of his strength and achievements. Buggy really hoped that, after Roger’s death, Shanks would follow in Roger’s footsteps and immediately pursue One Piece, but Redhead refused, saying that he wasn’t ready yet. This left Buggy frustrated and heartbroken, leading him to start a career as a pirate on his own.
