Oh hey, it's the greasebag Alvida. She ate the pus pus fruit, so now she's covered in a thin layer of greasy nastiness. Still worse than the soap soap chick.

And then there's the fact she just murdered Genzo's brother. Alvida's awful.

I personally love to bring back defeated villains who proved under powered the first time. There's nothing like implying the unceremonious beatdown the PCs gave last time led to an obsession with them and a villain training montage, followed by a grudge rematch.

PCs love when the world begins to revolve around them, whether that's through inspiring love or hate in the NPCs. Grade A drama!

i always preferred it when we made the world resolve around a random NPC. not the prince, not the nobles, But Little villager girl B, definitely chosen by the gods for greatness.

How else would you explain that she is in every single city your PCs have ever entered?

I had a random mook from early in the plot gain importance, powers and influence until he eventually become the new big bad. the kind with no name that are just dispatched
He could gather followers and keep them because as someone who served as a mook for years, he understood how his underlings felt. And because of the PCs...destructive tendencies (mostly one of them) towards NPC, peoples who had something against them where rather comon.

Aye, Rudedog. I'd also add a few things:

1) If you made the baddie well in the first place, it is a shame to reuse it at least a few times, where and when it is appropriate.

2) If you actually did a poor job on the baddie, consider it a chance to redeem your work. XP Or turn them into a running gag. :)

3) Pacing. Especially in series like One Piece where the protagonists are always rising in personal power. Strong foes, whether they remain strong or have now been surpassed. Weak foes, whether they remain weak or have now ascended. And, of course, evenly matched foes whether they break one way or the other in their return. These help the players know about their progress.

Plus, whenever one of these results seems ridiculous for the antagonists, but the protagonists already went through the same thing (usually powering up), it is a sign that maybe things aren't as well-paced for the heroes as you thought they were. >.> "Wait... he was already a planet-buster in his first appearance, but you're already many times stronger than that, so now he's a... star-buster? Crap."

I brought back a lot of villains in my campaign. Some of them were a huge deal. Some of them were punchlines. Some were pretty much party members in the end. One of them had a machine that worked like a motorcycle but functioned like a rock with a spirit inside of it. That the party's shaman could just disable and end the combat in one turn.

When he showed up the second time, he just kind of shrugged and said "Oh. You again. Well, I give up."

Roll?

So... Should he not have a chance to Roll for Evasion or perception?

Possibly, but not necessarily. For one thing, it's not unreasonable to assume that Alvida, a pirate, would have some kind of sneak attack that would eliminate the evasion roll. As for the perception, the GM could be doing their own perception check behind the screen so as not to give away what's about to happen.

That said, in this case the one being clubbed is an NPC, and none of the players are engaged in anything that depends on this NPC's continued existence. IMHO, that gives the GM every right to declare that Alvida simply walks up and caves the guy's head in without so much as a attack roll, never mind a damage check.
