Shanks’ bounty 12 years ago is 1.04 (or 1.004) billion berries. Shanks is known as “the killer of Color of Observation Haki”, which doesn’t let his opponent see through the future. Shanks uses his burning sword to villains.
1-year-old Shanks was found in a treasure chest by Roger and Rayleigh that was stolen by Roger when God Valley incident happened. Source: Volume 4 Billion handed out in theaters.
In the film, Shanks gets beaten up in his face by many manipulated citizens, but he won’t attack them and just endures, worrying about their health. On the other hand, Kizaru instantly tries to kill citizens who attack him.
Kizaru tries to kill citizens with his laser beam since they attack Marines. Beckman prevents him as seen in Marineford. Kizaru says, “It’s sarcastic that pirates protect citizens and Marines kill them.” Akainu ordered to kill Uta no matter how many citizens die.
According to Gorosei (Five Elders), Shanks belongs to “Fearland Family”. Maybe it means Shanks was a member of the Celestial Dragons?
Luffy meets Shanks although Luffy is unconsciously down. The scene where Luffy as Nika and Shanks attack their enemy at the same time was awesome. Shanks warns Kizaru and Fujitora, “If you’re gonna steal Uta from us, be prepared to die!” and releases Conqueror’s Haki.
Kizaru is sweating to see Shanks’ Haki , “So…this is the Haki of Yonko Shanks..” Fujitora decides to retreat, saying they shouldn’t start a “war” despite many citizens near them.
Beckman is good at Haki and rifles, whose bullet penetrates his enemy. He loves women and is popular among women. Yasopp never misses his mark and loves dancing. Lucky Roo is a cook and is not good at handling women. He is good at Haki and attacks like a bowling ball.
Bonk Punch and Monster are musicians. While Monster beats fodders and gain time, Bonk spends some time and releases a strong punch to a formidable enemy in one breath. Oda wrote his power is super-strong. Limejuice fights with a electric stick “in the air like Sanji”.
Hongo is a doctor and so familiar with weapons that he can rip apart weapons instantly. He loves a clean environment. Building Snake is a navigator. He attacks with a stomping kick. He fights with acrobatic juggling two-sword style. He is good at defense.
Howling Gab attacks with cutting howling. He hates insects and ghosts. Rockstar attacks with his “smashing-up sword style”. He digs a hole with his sword like a drill. He has a strong sense of justice and wants others to follow rules.
