Warning! Spoilers for Chapter 889 of the One Piece manga below!
Big Mom has shown off a large extent of her power during the "Whole Cake Island" arc, but her latest transformation implies a dangerous level of power yet to be experienced by series fans.
With her new wedding cake finished, and the Straw Hats running for as long as they could, Big Mom has reached her limit. And with that limit break, a new frightening form.
This new transformation has her hat Napoleon transform into its sword form, in its place Prometheus gives her a crown of flames and she loses weight to the point to where she can ride on top of her cloud, Zeus. With Big Mom starving for wedding cake for as long as she has, her new thin from grants her the agility to launch herself onto the Thousand Sunny.
Chapter 889 ends with Big Mom's new fearsome form towering over the Straw Hats on the Thousand Sunny. Carrot is out of commission in order not to lose her sanity in her Su Long transformation, and Jinbe declares that they might even have to abandon ship if the situation calls for it.
Now fans are anxious to see what kind of new power Big Mom's more slender form will grant her, and hoping Sanji can reach her with the wedding cake in time. All the while, Luffy is still fighting Katakuri in the mirror space.
