What if the Portuguese had colonized Luzon or Selurong before Magellan under the Spaniards can expedite? Or what if Magellan pulls the wind and head towards Okinawa/Ryukyu?
What will be the repercussions for Japan/Nihon if the Spaniards never conquered the Philippines but Okinawan islands?

I think the Portuguese could colonize Luzon/Selurong prior to the Spanish since the claimants of Tondo wanted to kick the Bruneians from Luzon since they were under Majapahit influence back then and the last Emperor of Majapahit was allied with the Portuguese prior to his demise, another POD associated with that is preventing the weakening of the relationship between Sunda and Portugal as well.

How can they win except not fighting in Mactan, anyway? Magellan had a few dozen Spaniards and several hundred native allies, against over a thousand warriors.
Perhaps just deciding not to fight LapuLapu or butterfly Magellan's landing on Cebu, Magellan had already had the ruler of Butuan under Spanish suzerainty.
