    V-Jump released a promotional poster for the upcoming One Piece Magazine vol. 5.

    Here's the translation:

    WHAT ARE THE BOUNTIES OF THE EMPERORS?!

    Text between BM and Kaido:
    "This two monstrous and powerful individuals have a bounty of over 2 billion!?"

    Shanks
    He is a mysterious man who has a connection to the "gorosei"!!

    "He is the only "emperor" without a devil fruit. He is strong enough to fight a marine admiral equally. He has the highest bounty."

    "Luffy's bounty is 1.5 billion.
    The newest emperor of the sea?!"

    Things to consider:
    -This informations are written by the editors published by Shueisha.

    - Shanks' bounty is the highest only among the emperors. It wasn't stated if he has the highest bounty in the whole series or not.

    - Shanks being able to fight an admiral equally implies that admiral = emperor. (In terms of individual strength)

    - Luffy is still not a confirmed emperor. The sentence has an interrobang (?!) Implying it's a question.

    Correction:

    It's actually: He might have the highest bounty. It's not a fact.

    again, it was not a fact. It is said that he MIGHT have the highest bounty. The sentence is an opinion.

    And it was just stated by the editor not Oda himself. I also think that it is just an opinion, well.. I just want to share it with you guys. :)

    and we thank you for that buddy.

    No worries i just wanted to correct that because some people might think that Oda revealed that Shanks has the highest bounty.

    Thanks for sharing that.

    To think that the title of the most wanted criminal is bestowed to Dragon-san. Its not clear that he has the highest bounty.

    I think it's safe to assume that Shanks and Dragon have at least 3+ Billion Bounties, just because of their past, present and potentially future threat ;)

    I keep going back and forth on whether or not I'd be surprised to find out that Shanks has a higher bounty than Big Mom or (especially) Kaido. On the one hand, he did sail with Roger's crew and so is probably extremely dangerous just on that alone, but on the other hand, he's, what, 20-30 years younger than Big Mom and Kaido, who had more years to amass their crew/reputation?

    Shanks man. Always an enigma.

    I still think Kaido will have the highest bounty out of the current or former Yonko. Just based on how dangerous/unkillable he seems to be.

    The statements sounded like "guesses" for teaser purposes.

    It could definitely make sense imo. He knows what void century history is. He has yet to spill the beans and that is likely the single reason why he has so much leverage with the Navy and WG.

    I think the poster refers to the highest bounty between the yonko, not in the whole series. If you remember Monkey D Dragon is the Most Wanted Man in the series. From this i assume that his bounty is higher thank Shanks.

    I think that any emperor (BM, Kaido, Shanks) beats without problem a marine admiral. Remember how the aged Whitebeard almost wiped out with Akainu, who is the most powerful marine admiral. From here, a yonko in his prime is over an admiral.

    And don't forget about Luffy's grandfather, Monkey D Garp, and the previous Fleet Admiral Sengoku. We do not know the full extent of their powers. I think that both of them are on a yonko level(only the individual, not the fleet).

    Shanks' bounty is bigger than Kaido and Big Mom's? That was unexpected :openmouth:.

    So are we starting to see Shank's true color? We may be looking at Shank's back story in the future because of this. Shank is evil and Teach is trying to save OP? Thanos in OP?

    I believe he has his own "evil", like how Buggy has one. Would be boring if Shanks is purely in the good side, and is quite predictable as majority of the people all over the world, OPF included, believe that he's just a pro-peace, fun-loving guy.

    Well i knew shanks had a nice bounty but never thought that it would be more than kaidou.
    The more the bounty the more threat to world government, though he has some connection to the gorosei, he still has the highest bounty among the yonkos.
    Even the statement "equal to admiral" makes a yonko look less powerful, it should had been something like equal to all 3 admirals together or something.

    Someone’s bounty has and will always be based on the person’s “threat level” to the Government. If the Government knew of Croc’s plan to find and use Pluton, he might have a higher bounty than Shanks. We don’t know if Kaidou’s bounty went up since the Wano Kuni alliance but it definitely should have. We also don’t know if any of them attack Marine bases or not. We know Luffy has, so that explains his high bounty.

    I’ll add on later if the raw text has additional info. I’m not gonna bother looking at it on my phone.

    Edit: just like the unofficial databooks, nothing is stated directly (lots of "it may be", "perhaps", or making the statement a question). The most important thing to clarify is that the Shanks part has a key detail missing: they clearly state "admiral class" as in only confirmation that Yonkou are roughly equal to admirals (Kaidou is still at the top with everyone else up for debate). The list of people that are "admiral class" is steadily growing, so that's probably where they did not only limit it to the Yonkou ~ equal to admirals.

    It just doesn't add up if shanks is anything less than what I am imagining..

    1. Connection with Gorosei (take note that they respect him, no threat)
    2. He stopped Kaido and went straight to the war unscratched (plus Sengoku respected him, no threat)
    3. He doesn't have any territories or Oda hasn't shown them yet. (again, no threat)
    4. He's always hidden. Remember wheh Mihawk visited him, the red hair pirates were isolated. (Did i mentioned this already? No threat.)

    Where's the threat factor to theh WG? Little to none. but still being recognized to have the biggest bounty.

    He may have one or two of the weapon of mass destruction? Could be. Or he knows the secret of Mariejose? Possibly. But one things for sure to me. He might be Luffy's final enemy. He also knows what happened to Roger's glory.

    P.s. would the straw hat be the key to Raftel? And shanks is the guardian of raftel that luffy has to defeat? Maybe the hat was given to roger as well and had to defeat the guy who gave it to him?
