Despite being Marines, the G-5 call Vice-Admiral Smoker, "Smo-yan". The honorifics "yan, tan, taso, chaso" are oftenmore dialect variants of "-san" or "-chan". However, these are highly informal and are used more as nicknames.
Brownbeard refers to himself as "-sama". It can be seen as arrogant to use an honorific when talking about one's self. More so to use one as high as "-sama".
It appears that Mocha isn't present at first, but she is actually seen among the children behind Doran when the group is first shown from the back.
It's unknown how Ken'emon can control his separate body parts with precision.
It's revlealed in this episode that Trafalgar Law has joined the Seven Warlords with the two year time-skip.
The honorific that Trafalgar uses for everyone, "-ya" is a suffix normally added to a person's occupation. For example, a fisherman would be a "sakana-ya", or a sushi chef would be a "sushi-ya".
In the original manga, the scene of Trafalgar delivering the 100 hearts was never shown.
