    Not sure if i missed something, but did Oda every explain to us why some pirates are really big in terms of body size?

    Examples- Blackbeard, Whitebeard, Doflamigo, Ivankov, Moriah (prob just ate too much souls) etc.

    Im pretty sure Blackbeard and Whitebeard were normal sizes when they have shown flashbacks.

    Blackbeard and Doflamingo are normal .

    The other ones , i guess it's one of the many One Piece mysteries . I'm sure we'll find out the secret of the big humans later .

    Ya that's what i was wondering. There is one scene in Marineford that makes him look extremely tall. For sure taller than the average human. Taller than any human would ever be LOL

    Not just Pirates, I believe Akainu, Kizaru and Aokiji are all incredibly taller than the average person.
    Also Bartholomew Kuma is 689 cm. Oda just loves making giants that aren't technically giants :P

    One of the answers to your question would be One piece universe is a place of all type of people and then other
    Would be there heights are various because of the gravitational pull of the SIX Moons One Piece world has Kuma San and gecko are of huge size 'cause 4 moons came in a straight line or were together when they were born.
    The mermaid princess and the Giants 'cause 5moons came in a straight line or were together and The Gaint the one in Ace Senpai's crew OARS (continental drifters) I guess was the outcome of 6moons! XD:closeenough: Answers.
    And I would also agree with @Kevz san, it's true and Scientifically Proven Drink Milk to get taller.

    Well, i am pretty sure that all those people are tall just to make things interesting or point them that they may be important people.

    One funny case of tall people are (i don't know if anyone remember them) the franky family trio in Enies Lobby arc, especially the episode where they meet the two giants of Elbaf.

    It’s just Oda’s art style. How else can they naturally get so tall?

    I think there is not much to explain there. That's how OP universe works, for example long legs/arms tribe, perfectly normal thre as much that someone can grow up to 3,4,..10m.

    Every tribe had inter married during the void century of the great kingdom. So, genetics is just showing itself randomly everywhere.

    And drink milk.

    There are three things that are unlimited:
    1. The world
    2. Human's stupidity
    3. Character's height in One Piece

    I'm pretty sure it was said somewhere that the size reflects strength

    Heightened Willpower.

    Dwarves are small because they lack Willpower.

    Giants are large because they have abundant Willpower.

    Berserkers are large, and monstrous, because they have abundant Willpower (type: rage).

    That's how I view it, k.


    With that said, Dwarves, Giants, and Berserkers are probably all just subcategories of Human anyway.

    Meaning, humans can get big.. or small... or gain features... depending on their Will.

    Also then, too, the people who got bigger during the timeskip had increased Willpower. It should be that simple, really.

    Then, if you look at Whitebeard-- he was World's Strongest Man, and was likely the World's Tallest Man as well. Big Mom has also been compared to a giant.

    When you first see Whitebeard, even his damn ship looks small compared to him.
