I have a theory about Luffy and Crocodile's fight and its climax, which came about in the form of what many people regard as an asspull:

http://img1.ak.crunchyroll.com/i/spire3/407ffa3ba999a11d4796f55364e38c681376063216_full.jpg

Now, while the fact that Crocodile's DF was vulnerable to water (and therefore blood) wasn't too surprising, the fact that Luffy still had the strength to fight (and eventually defeat) Crocodile was quite frankly ridiculous, especially since Crocodile had shown strong DC and durability feats CASUALLY. So, how can we explain Luffy's victory beyond the simple assertion of "plot armor"?

It's actually quite simple: I think that Crocodile's DF's weakness not only negates the abilities granted by it but it also extremely reduces DC and durability.

This is shown perfectly by Crocodile in the final portion of his fight with Luffy. Not only are his attacks not shown to have as great an effect on Luffy (considering that Luffy is on his last legs), but Luffy is able to counterattack to a greater extent compared to his second encounter with Crocodile. Crocodile is effectively handicapped in his last fight, and it lets Luffy pull off the victory.

This DF weakness argument also allows for Crocodile to be hypothetically stronger than what he's shown to be. Although he is the first Shikibukai to be introduced, he didn't necessarily need to be the weakest of the bunch. The incredibly versatile sand DF Crocodile possesses is more than enough to handle many mid-tiers (up untill the point characters obtain Armament Haki).

TL;DR: Crocodile's defeat at the hands of Luffy was due to hax negation and a decrease in DC and durability caused by his sand DF's weakness to water.

Hypothetical Scenario #2:
What if Blackbeard had been introduced as a rival for Luffy right before the Skypia arc, but instead of becoming one of the major antagonists he instead had turned into a semi-ally of sorts?

Note: this does not mean that he does commit antagonistic actions like kill Whitebeard, only that he does not oppose the Straw-Hats and occasionally assists them in situations that benefit him.

First post in this community:

Hypothetical Scenario: What if Buggy had been introduced as an ally who later joined the Straw Hats? How would this have affected the rest of the series?
