Why do you guys think thatch didn't eat the devil fruit right away,instead of showing it to everyone which made Blackbeard kill him for it?
Couldn't Blackbeard have took it without killing him
you've got point there...
But i'd suggest not to pay attention as some LITTLE illogical things are permitted in anime... atleast thats what i think
Yeah, but who knows, maybe Thatch was planning to sell it or gift it only to a certain someone. Or maybe he needed some time to decide if he is going to eat it or not / lose his ability too swim or not, and maybe after some time decided to eat it, and Blackbeard found him while he was going to eat it, and thus, killing him. Who knows, we will not know for sure.
I think Thatch wanted to show everyone the devil fruit he was going to eat as his crew members should know about it
The reason why BB killed him because he had no choice. He became a member of WB pirates to get the fruit. And if some one eats it then the only option is to kill him and the closest fruit will become a devil fruit ( My theory)
Not everyone wants to eat a DF. There are weaknesses to it as well as strengths.
Thatch wanted to share it that df with the other crew, remember he is a cook, right. DF for dinner. lol
Who says he knew which DF it was. Sure, Blackbeard knew, but Thatch might not have.
Yeah, but if I were in his place and found a devil fruit, id eat it immediately
And that's why you're not commanding the 4th division of the Whitebeard Pirates. That and a couple of other reasons.
It's not like you'd understand
What do you think?
