Their philosophies are so different, and their goals are so far apart, that they would'nt exactly click. Dragon's revos do start a war in every country, and he may expect Luffy to side with him or join him. He is against monarchy, and if they wish to destroy Alabasta's monarchy or something, even if they are good, Luffy will set himself against Dragon. I think something will happen to set them apart, rather tan them being a father son duo.
That is quite a nice idea! The Nefeltari fmaily belongs to the 20 kings who formed the WG 800 years ago, and was the only family not to move to Mariejois, but to stay on their own island/country. Even tho they are "good" and stayed on their own country, they might still be "World Nobles" in the eyes of the Revos, and Dragon could traget them, inciting Luffy's anger, triggering a collision between father and son.
, I'm not quite sure if you point your appeal "to think outside the box" towards me, but rest assured that I do think outside the box, else I wouldnt have started this thread^^
About Good & Evil in One Piece, I would say u can find both in every party:
Coby, Smoker, right sense of justice, loyal, humane - Evil Marines:
Akainu, Nezumi, Narisugi, (Vergo), absolut justice, inhumane, corrupt
Straw Hats, Red Hairs, Whitebeards, protecting innocent, helpful, comradery - Evil Pirates:
Kids, Caribous, Arlongs, killing, spreading terror, lust for power
A little difficult, but they try to build a stable and save world, fighting against Pirates, nothing bad with that - Evil WG:
World Nobles, discrimination, racism
Ivankov, immediately helping Luffy, even risking his life multiple times and going against the storngest opponents (Magellan, Akainu), he is a true nakama, Kuma (protecting the Straw Hats and Sunny), their overall idea of fighting against racism is honorable - Evil Revos:
Tough to say yet, but like I suggested, they may have a few merciless tendencies, starting war in countries, affecting civilians
You mentioned a nice fact, jesus: "He needs Luffys help. Maybe thats why he helped Luffy in Loguetown, to see him get stronger and help him in future." This was mentioned a few times by fans, they believe Dragon is the trigger of the final arc, the huge war that will come, and he plans on using Luffy, or in a nicer way: Winning him for his side.
I dont really believe that they will be true enemies, but I do hope for some friction between them. Drama we had when Luffy and Usopp fought.
