I'm curious to see the next page and see how Luke rationalizes his choice of Mr. 3 to attack.

Really, picking the right one out of sheer dumb luck isn't a tremendous feat, even leaving aside either foreshadowing you want to read into the canon series or however Luke manages it here. There's a bunch of targets, sure, but once you factor in Mr. 3's cowardly tendencies, it narrows the choice down quite a bit.

Basically the Neji thesis: has to be the one staying at the back. Only this time, Luke is right because Mr 3 *is* that much of a coward.

The Neji theorem didn't work again Naruto because Naruto is more of an idiot than a coward.

Well, there is a very good chance that it was the only Skittle that was a unique color from the others. Is what I'm thinking.

Or a favorite flavor of skittle.

So observation haki is really just Luke's hunches. Good to know.

Well at this point in canon hunches were the only hint at future obsevation haki.

What I love about Haki in One Piece is that its basically standard shonen character abilities cranked up- the uncanny instinct that lets a protagonist dodge better than possible, notice plot relevant things, hit and take hits harder than they should, and charm and intimidate impossibly well.

Its especially fun when you look back at other stories and think about who is using haki with that perspective.

More like, they're kinda like player abilities.

Observation Haki: The player notices something and makes the character act on it. For example, Usopp getting notes from a sloppy DM.
Armament Haki: Ki abilities that ignore damage. Or simply having the DM get overwhelmed with all the crazy damage calculations for Sanji, Usopp, and Zoro, and being like "You know what? You guys are strong enough that I'm just gonna calculate for Usopp, Nami, and Robin."
Conqueror's Haki: A fist smash to the map. Or table flip.

The three year gap is because these things became patterns, it took awhile to allow this sorta shenanigans, and the DM was like "You know what? I wanna finish the story, so you do whatever it takes to win, but don't break the table."

The Fake and The real

Is obvious, you only need to attack the one that is talking, that is the real one

If it was Cory, and possibly still Luke, I would say that the guy in the back was the only one who needed a full action to attack. 'Everyone' else was in a threatened square that Luffy could reach as a reaction. So attack the only one who could act without triggering AOO.

Option 2: it was the only one that was Luke's favorite flavor. He eats all defeated skittles.

Option 3: Only one of them can move (not confirmed, DnD has puppets and Golems but we are looking at reasoning not facts) so smash one while activating as many threatened squares as possible to solve the challenge. Let the reaction economy sort out the rest.

Do you think GM (Gordon) will in the interlude talk about how Luke usually deals with these kind of 'traps.' "At least there was no snowy mountains. Then he would have caused an avalanch to hit everything."
