After Luffy crashing Sanji and Pudding's wedding, fans have been waiting for Big Mom to explode on One Piece. The Whole Cake Island has given the anime plenty of cool moments, but Big Mom's latest display of power certainly is near the top of that list.
When Luffy is successfully able to show Big Mom the broken picture of Mother Carmel, Big Mom focused all of her rage and let out an extreme showing of her Conqueror's Haki with a wail.
Bege previously explained that part of his plan was to get Big Mom to cry out in order for her Conqueror's Haki to knock out most of the Charlotte Family. This would then make her weak and vulnerable to attack, and the poison missile Caesar developed.
Fans got to see the plan in motion as Luffy was able to dodge Katakuri and Oven in order to show Big Mom the photo. After Big Mom shuts down and tries to even put it together, she completely loses it and her Haki indeed completely knocks people unconscious. This even opened up the Vinsmokes so Sanji could break them from their candy bonds.
As the next episode will dive into Big Mom's past and reveal why the picture of Mother Carmel is so important to her, and fans will see how that ties into her Haki outbursts. It's just one of the many reasons she's so fearsome too, as her power is immense when she is out of control.
