Roger didn't say he left treasure at One Piece. He said he left that which was most valuable 'to him.' Everyone just assumed it was a giant pile of money or a superweapon or something.

Seeing all the parallels between Roger and Luffy that are being made, I have to ask myself what Luffy would find most valuable.

Friends? Yes, but Roger probably didn't leave his friends on his island.

I think it's memories. The treasure of One Piece is the journey to One Piece itself. There's probably nothing there of any real value to pirates like Blackbeard or people in the World Government. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't just an abandoned hideaway with a shelf of handwritten journals and photo albums, and maybe a letter to the son that he never got to raise, telling him that he loves him.

If he left his crew on that island for dead and called them One Piece... That'd be pretty metal dude

but ya i think it's memories and stuff, what would be the point of treasure for the man who had it all?

It would be lame, until you realize that Roger played the entire world and screwed the World Government over utterly basically on a pure bluff.

The world wasn't saved from the tyranny and oppression it exists under because of a superweapon or a vast source of wealth. It was saved because hundreds of thousands of extraordinary men and women followed their dreams, even if it meant they would be labeled pirates and outlaws. Roger already gave away One Piece in my mind. He gave his wealth to every man, woman, and child that dreams of the Grand Line the day they executed him.

Because the world that the World Nobility and the Admiralty Council exists in, cannot survive the dreams of the people they oppress and manipulate.

One Piece is the freedom to dream of better things. And that will be the death and downfall of the evils of the world Luffy lives in.

that sounds more like a plot for my little pony. no offense

i sincerely hope that the "one piece" will be something more suprising and meaningful than some clich├ęd talk of friendships and adventure

If you're considering what Luffy finds most valuable, you might consider that on the island is just a giant stack of meat.

I agree so much. I don't think anyone of the Straw Hat crew will be dissapointed if it is as such, because of the amazing journey.

They pretty much said as much. Relaigh was about to tell them what was really on One Piece, but Luffy told him to shut up, because none of them wanted to hear it. Hearing what was really there would ruin the journey to get there, and the other Strawhats agreed.

So it's pretty clearly that they already suspect, at least, that One Piece is not what everyone else thinks it is, and they don't want to be told, lest their adventure get spoiled.

Couldn't have said it better.

He said he left all of his wealth and treasure

If you're a billionaire, your greatest wealth and treasure, should be more than money

If you're a billionaire would it not be your stacks of cash? It would be mine.
