One Piece's new Reverie arc has already reunited fans with a ton of characters and shook up the series in a big way, but it seems the series is heading to an even bigger climax as fans were finally introduced to a crucial component to the series.
The Revolutionary Army has shown themselves here and there throughout the series, but now that they are set to declare war on the World Government, fans finally see their strongest players: the Revolutionary Army Commanders.

Saying that they are all together for once due to what is happening at Reverie, the Revolutionary Army Commanders indeed have a big showing of power. When Peachbeard, a pirate strengthened and named by Teach, attacks Lulushia Kingdom. Suddenly an oddly dressed giant appears out of the ground and carrying a harpoon (while saying the enemies have a crush on him).
This giant is named Morley, who commands the West Army, who is joined by the other three commanders. There's the sharp toungued Belo Betty of the East Army, Lindbergh of the South Army who wants to use his weapons, and the North Army's Karasu, who can only speak through his mask when it's turned on.
After Belo Betty uses the power of her Pep-Pep Fruit, which enhances the hearts and minds of others, the people of the Lulushia Kingdom fight back Peachbeard. Once the deed is done, Betty tells them to cash in Peachbeard's 50 million Belly reward and call for their help again when needed.
They're a group of good people, but they do definitely have an edge fans will want to keep an eye on.
