In the One Piece story there is a huge number of characters both leading and supporting roles, most of which become quite popular with fans of the play.
It is no secret to anyone that fans generally they tend to get attached to the main charactersbut there are also secondary characters or with little participation and relevance to the story, who are quite loved by the fans.
A great example of those many characters “extras” or with little participation loved by fansis Bogard. Next, we will tell you more details about this character and why he is so popular among fans.
Before you continue reading this article, it is important that you take into account that this post contains spoilers for chapter #1071 of the manga one piece.
Who is Bogard from One Piece?
For the fans it is well known that in One Piece there are many charactershaving around 1100 shown so far throughout the history of this work, even having some considered better characters than others.
It is quite common for fans to feel greater interest in the characters that have the greatest prominence or relevance to the story, such as the Straw Hat crew, or the main antagonists, such as Blackbeard.
Among those many characters that have been shown in history, there is one quite particular, Bogard, who accompanies the well-known Navy Hero, Garpand that really isn’t shown much in the story.
Bogard is a skilled fighter and swordsman., considered as the right hand of Monkey D. Garp, the Hero of the Navy. This well-dressed character has so little participation in the work that his rank in the marines is a mystery, and even his name is only mentioned in the anime.
Notably, the Bogard character has been with Monkey D. Garp since the days of Gol D. Roger, and ever since. has been a faithful and loyal companion of the Hero of the Navy.
The fact that he’s been with Garp for so long only implies that Bogard possesses totally and utterly amazing abilitieswhich have allowed him to be a kind of bodyguard for the Hero of the Navy.
Also, considering that he’s been with a powerhouse like Garp, there’s no no doubt that Bogard is quite a strong character.
Although we could attribute his popularity to his apparent great strength, the fact that fans love a character about whom so little is known is somewhat unusual, raising the question of: Why is it so popular?.
Why is Bogard so loved by fans?
As mentioned above, it is likely that Bogard’s popularity is due to to the long time he has spent with Garpwhich would imply that he possesses great strength and ability, being technically the bodyguard of the Navy Hero.
Although fans have concluded that he is a strong character due to the fact that he is the swordsman who accompanies Garp, the truth is that Bogard has briefly managed to demonstrate his skills as a swordsman..
In chapter 101, titled “Bombardment Obstruction Obstruction Obstruction”, Bogard manages to cut the swords of a Koby easily.
While not all that impressive given that it was performed against a previously trained Koby, the ability to perform such a thing proves that Bogard is worthy of his position as Garp’s partner..
Nevertheless, strength and skill are not the only relevant factors and necessary for a character to intrigue fans, and even make fans grow fond of the character.
We could say that Bogard’s popularity, like Shanks, could also be due to the fact that these they have not shown even a quarter of their full potential (although Shanks is likely a much more relevant character than Bogard).
That hint of mystery with a certain force It is what gives characters like Shanks and Bogard great popularity, since the way they have been shown in history turns them into fun puzzles.
Although fans have so far failed to see the great power and total strength that Bogard has, the latest chapter of the manga seems to give Bogard the opportunity to show what you can really do.
Bogard could show his true potential soon in the One Piece story
The recent chapter # 1071 of one pieceGarp sets out to catch Blackbeard, gathering his crew in a mission to rescue the Koby that has been kidnapped.
The fans assume that Bogard is ready to put his sword skills into practice., along with his friend and leader, Garp. Blackbeard’s crew is quite strong, and while Garp is more into fighting alone, he’ll need a team this time around.
If this showdown between Blackbeard’s crew and Garp’s crew happens, chances are fans will finally be able to see the true and absolute potential of Bogardcausing great chaos among fans and on the internet.
The popularity that characters like Bogard, who appear to be totally irrelevant to the story, gain generally comes from fans who care about them and give them entertainment value on the internet.
It should be noted that, although until now the extreme strength and power of Bogard is a mere speculation, the evidence that this character has given regarding his abilities, makes there high probability that he is a powerful sailor.
This statement gains much more weight when we consider the fact that Bogard has been the Garp’s partner, vice admiral and right-hand man for many years, and surely that not a place for wimps.
Anyway, fans love mysteryand if there is something that characterizes Bogard, it is the mystery that this character harbors.
Bogard may not be one of the most important characters in the series, like the protagonists, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that he is a mystery quite loved by One Piece fans.
