Default Why Are The Admirals So Tall? (One Piece)

Anyone have any clue why the Admirals all happen to be the same height and taller than everyone else? I honestly think it might be Oda's way of portraying their superiority over regular pirates and marines of a lower rank. Any ideas or clues hinting at why they're so tall?

Probably, because Whitebeard was like a giant and he was one of the greatest pirates...so there could be a correlation.

I was also thinking that, but how it does explain Roger and Shanks?

Default Re: Why Are The Admirals So Tall? (One Piece)

Roger, Shanks, the Straw Hats.... People like them don't have a large size, but that could also be because they are omnipresent throughout the story whether there are just small references or little stories about them.

The Admirals and Whitebeard have larger size and big parts, but they aren't as important as the rest of the characters, so it could possibly be that Oda is bringing more attention to them through their size.

Other than that, it could just be because he felt like it.

Because when they are devil fruit users when they age they get taller. Kuzan was not always tall neither whitebeard. However shanks and Roger are not tall bcz they are not devil fruit eaters. But big mama is tall as well so it must be it.
