This theory states that Devil Fruit Users awaken their Devil Fruits based on their personality and will. And i’ll give examples and explain how.
You ask “But Pirate-King Buggy, what does Personality even have to do with awakenings?”
Well , in my theory i believe that Devil Fruit users can manipulate and change the nature of their Devil Fruit’s Original Power to fit them according to their use.
To make this theory easy to understand, I will divide Devil Fruit users into 3 parts.
1- Normal Devil Fruit Users.
(This is the base level , any Devil Fruit user is at this level)
2- Advanced Devil Fruit Users.
(This is the Devil Fruit user can that use their Devil Fruit at full potential)
3- Awakened Devil Fruit Users.
(people who got their Devil Fruit users to go beyond their limits)
This theory will only cover Awakened Devil Fruit Users.
So first of all , What examples have we seen in the Anime/Manga that Devil Fruits go beyond their Limit?
One of the examples is Luffy’s RED HAWK.
In the Movie 3D2Y , It was explained that Luffy obtained Ace’s Flare.
The Gomu-Gomu no Mi can’t produce fire. However, Luffy’s anger over Ace’s death and his love for his Nakama made his Devil Fruit to change it’s properties to be able to Somewhat copy Ace’s devil fruit.
Could Red Hawk be one type of Awakening?
This is an example that Devil Fruit users awaken their Devil Fruits based on their personality and will.
Another example is Luffy’s Gear 4th.
Doflamingo was shocked that Luffy’s armament haki was rubbery.
Doflamingo is a haki user too , so why was he surprised?
Is that because Luffy manipulated his Devil Fruit in order to use haki on it? But if he did , isn’t that considered a type of awakening?
Some people may say this is far fetched. It maybe be.
After all this is just pure speculation.
But I also found something interesting.
Luffy’s gear 4th Attack names are based off of the animals he trained with.
1- Gomu Gomu no Kong Gun
2- Gomu Gomu no Rhino Schneider
3- Gomu Gomu no Culverin
4-Gomu Gomu no Leo Bazooka
5- Gomu Gomu no King Kong Gun
These animals that Luffy trained with could have had influence on his personality and his style of fighting.
Therefore his Devil Fruit somewhat changed it’s property to adapted to Luffy’s new personality.
Enough of Luffy , let’s take another example of awakenings :p
Another example is Chopper.
Many People Speculate that Chopper’s Monster Point is his awakening.
We also see a moment with Chopper that kind of confirms that statement.
In Fishman Island , we see how Chopper’s Human Form has changed .
Chopper said the reason is “ at first he wanted to look like a human because he wanted friends. Now he wants to become a monster to help Luffy.”
This is another example how the Devil Fruit user’s personality can change the properties of the original Devil Fruit to their will.
Well , what about Doflamingo’s Awakening?
How does that fit his personality?
Doflamingo’s personality is the Puppet master.
His Personality is to control other people against their will.
So it would make sense that he is able to control other elements in his surroundings such as the buildings and the ground into strings.
After all the Puppet master can do whatever he wants to change his stage into the play he wants.
This also explains how Doflamingo can clone him self into a puppet.
And make the bird cage where the Puppets can’t escape his stage.
And because Awakening is special to the Devil Fruit user only, and based on his personality .
Then that means no two Devil Fruit Users who have the same Devil fruit can have the same abilities!
Yes, We do see an example of that in the manga.
The Mera Mera No Mi!
Ace/ Sabo’s Devil Fruit.
Despite the fact both Ace and Sabo have the same Devil Fruit , both of them use It completely differently.
Sabo’s main attacks are Dragon Claw and attacks he learned from the Revolutionary Army.
Ace main attacks are guns and fireballs, and attacks he learned while he was under Whitebeard’s ship.
Both Ace and Sabo are influenced differently, and they use the Devil Fruit differently according to their personality.
Unfortunately none of them are awakened, so I can’t compare them on that.
However , My guess is if Sabo awakens his Devil Fruit it has to do with something according to a Dragon Attack.
Just like Magellan from Impel Down.
His Awakening was transforming into a Venom Demon.
Since Impel Down theme was based on “Hell”, the devil Fruit changed to be more poisonous and dangerous, and it changed from hydras to a Demon.
The last example on awakenings according to personality is Brook.
Brook gained his power of making his body leave his soul by knowing what was missing from his songs.
And that was something “Any-Male would understand” YOHOHOHOHO!
Brook’s Pervert Personality gained him a new power.
-Devil Fruit Users awaken their devil fruits based on their personality and will.
-Devil Fruits can change their abilities according on the User’s influence to it.
– No two Devil Fruit Users can have the same awakening because Awakenings are special to the users.

Now Brook is one of my favorite characters in the Manga, he’s had very little character development compared to the rest of the SH’s and his past is very much unknown. One thing i’d like to note from the start is the sbs where Oda reveals the nationalities of the SH’s
Luffy is Brazilian
Zoro is Japanese
Nami is Swedish
Usopp is African
Sanji is French
Chopper is Canadian
Robin is Russian
Franky is American
Brook is Austrian
This information will help you better understand the rest of the theory so i got it out of the way. Lets start with Brook’s name
As a Noun: A Small Stream
As a Verb: Tolerate of Allow
Brook’s character has always held steady and pretty much allowed anything to happen unless it involves threatening his Nakama, his personality basically is him tolerating any and everything that happens around him, despite being picked on or made fun like how franky and brook spoke still he had a smile on his face and enjoyed the presence of another person despite what harsh criticisms may come his way.
Austrian history actually helps further prove this as being Oda’s subtle hints, in 1955 after WW2 Austria was found to be an independent and sovereign state.
October 26, 1955 Austria made a pact that they would stay neutral and out of any military conflict, it also states it will not allow military from other countries to set up and wage war on their country.
First thing i’d like to point out, Gekko Moriah had nothing to do with Brook’s “Death”, he said it happened some decades ago while clearly he lost his shadow like 5 years ago pretimeskip, 7 years ago post timeskip.
Notice Sanji’s reaction, he even goes as far as to be worried about what he’s hearing i don’t believe this is his manners since he gets made but his reaction is far more related on being concerned.
Brook said what? “I was promised i could live a second life”. Ok so this is where i’m getting suspicious, who would go out of their way to give Brook a Devil Fruit. Another thing, if somebody gave Brook this DF which we all know you only find out once you eat it, but had the knowledge of the DF beforehand means they’d of had to study the Devil Fruits with a book.
Notice that Brook does not at all specifically mention who attacked him, if it was pirates he’d likely just say that but i believe he was attacked by Germa 66. First off i do understand Brook used to be with a Battle Convoy of a certain Kingdom, but i do not however believe Warmonger or Germa 66 has any direct relation.
Proof on Brook’s DF having no relationship to Gecko Moriah
Brook’s light Bone’s allowing him to run on water
More info on Brook’s past
Seeing as Ryuma has Brook’s personality it’s clear that Brook was specifically trained in Fencing, his fighting style resembles a mix of Fencing and Iaido(replacing sword from scabbard cutting and returning it)
Fencing is traditionally French, Iaido is associated with Japan, French and Japanese words consist of Brook’s fighting moves.
Why was Brook targeted?
I have two options that make sense
Option A. For his Devil Fruit
Option B: Something he learned during his job as the leader of a Battle Convoy
We know Germa 66 is essentially hitmen for hire, mercenaries if you will. And it’s a mythical army commanded by Sanji’s father and they deal heavily in the Black Market. Blackbeard can’t be the only person targeting DF”s and i believe revival is quite an ability.
I fully expect Brooke to target and fight Germa 66 i believe we will learn more in the upcoming chapters but it’s clear its Germa 66 who wiped Brook and his crew out.
During the first part of WW2, the Austrians fought with the Germans, i believe Germa 66 to be related to the Nazi troops a hidden army, the Nazi’s did alot of crazy things, the Death Camps, Weapon Improvements, Immoral Experimentation, As i said earlier in the video eventually Austria became it’s own country. Perhaps it’s because Brook’s country is an ally of Germa 66, it would help explain why he decided to become a pirate, to get away from constant warfare. One thing that is strange is that Brook has said nothing about his country of origin as if he’s trying to forget about it.
The people he cares about are Laboon, the Rumbar Pirates, and the SH Pirates, but no one from his country seems to interest him.
I am not certain now one hundred percent but i hope the theory helps shed some light onto the skeleton dead bones Brook

This is a very relevant topic to theorize about given the recent chapter, so I thought it would be fun. Did my research, and I’m back at you with another theory that’s 100% mine. Because that’s the only way I ever do them anyways. Oh and every time I introduce a new Japanese history term, it will be tagged with a wikipedia link so you can follow it straight away to get a little background.
THE RULING SYSTEM ON WANOKUNI
This arc imo, is Oda’s baby. There hasn’t been an arc like this with literally 3, potentially 4-5 arcs of build up since like Alabasta. And never been an arc that will be so heavily steeped in Japanese Culture and History. He’s gonna make sure his historical references and artistic depictions of Wano are ON POINT. Japan is Oda’s thing. So I expect that many things onWano will be very true to authentic Feudal Era Japan.
The main thing however is the governing system of Wano. In Japan, there were two rulers, one was the Emperor, who held a more religious based position among the masses and then there was the Shogun, who held the office of the Shogunate,which makes him a military and political leader. The Shogun had more power than the Emperor. The weird thing is theShogun was usually appointed BY the Emperor. An odd system indeed.
The families from which Shogun were usually chosen were from the Feudal Lords, also referred to as the Daimyo. Individual Clans who had great power and wealth. It was very common for these Clans to hire Samurai to work under them.
There is another special position known as a Regent, known in Japanese as a Sesshō. This position is given to someone who’s job is to assist a child emperor before his coming of age. I believe the One Piece equivalent of this is Kinemon’s title of Retainer. Which brings me to my first point.
This little Shit
Now the first thing you are saying is , but Kinemon is just a Retainer so how could his son be heir to the throne? For one thing, it is not unheard of, in fact it was common place for awhile, that members of the Imperial Family were appointed asRetainers. So Kinemon himself could be Royalty. Maybe just not directly in line for the throne.
But also, I’m going to say there is a possibility that Momonosuke might not be Kinemon’s son and something happened to his parents while he was a baby, and Kinemon was given the task of hiding Momonosuke’s identity from some enemy who was in power, due to the fact that his lineage was a direct threat to that power. And he’s lied to Momo their entire lives.
So Momo’s royal title was hidden from even him, since he was just a baby. That’s also a possibility. More importantly,Momonosuke means “Peach Emperor”, so there is that. And of course this parallels with Vivi and her plight to save her kingdom of Alabasta.But still, why does that make Momonosuke important to one of the Younkou?
2. KAIDOU IS THE CURRENT SHOGUN OF WANOKUNI
Because, as most people have guessed, Kaidou is the current Shogun of Wanokuni. And I don’t think he’s the rightful one either, as in lineage wise. Strength wise he might have earned it, but some of the Samurai don’t want him as the Shogun. The clues for this have been in the way his crew have talked about him. Particularly Sheepshead.
There are some interesting different plot points that could have occurred to bring Kaidou to power. The first one is thatKaidou, in his endless quest to find a worthy opponent, came to Wano because he had heard about the strong warriors there. But none of them proved a challenge and he defeated them all. After which they submitted to his rule out of fear. Very possible.
Another idea I had is that he and Moria may have had their epic showdown on Wano, and when the Samurai tried to drive him out afterwards, they were unable to do so. This would explain Moria robbing Ryuuma’s grave. Still it doesn’t have to, but this one is also possible. I’m sure we will learn about the specifics of this on Wano as Kinemon mentioned it when he saw Zoro’s sword, whether or not it relates to Kaidou’s position.
The third way is more based on a historical event in Japan, known as the Boshin War.
“THE BLOODLESS REVOLUTION”
THE MINKS AND THE KOGETSU CLAN
Our theory will take us back a few hundred years to the past to theorize the events that made the Minks and Samurai become allies. If there is one thing that can bring two races together, especially two warrior races like the Minks and the Samurai, it’s a common enemy. So I’ve been thinking on it and I’ve come up with what I believe is the common enemy. It all starts, with a ……
If you are not familiar with Oda’s One Shot Monsters, I would suggest going and taking a look at it, following the link I provided. The events are considered canon and I think it’s important because it’s entirely relevant as we go towards Wano.
I’ll summarize as I know some people are lazy. In the story, Monsters, we deal with a story about a town who was terrorized by a dragon which they thought was a natural disaster, but was the work of two criminals controlling the creature with something called the Dragon’s Horn. Ryuuma, a wandering Samurai who is just passing through. He’s misjudged, people think he’s low down crook, but in the end, the Swordsman they revered turned out to be a swine and Ryuuma was the true hero.
Now I don’t expect us to see Oda retread this story in One Piece with updated characters and settings. It has its place in OP lore, but to me the most important elements aren’t the story and the plot, but these key things.
If you notice, it is revealed that Ryuuma is the “King” swordsman character that people speak about as this legendary swordsman that’s the best in the world, but he doesn’t know that’s what people call him because he’s not in it for the fame and doesn’t stick around to receive it. So in this One Shot, Ryuuma has already established himself as a legend and the whole one shot is just giving us a glimpse into him.
I believe at some point in the samurai’s history, they were under the threat of Dragons wiping them out. Very reminiscent of the plot of the film “How to Train Your Dragon”. Basically, as a warrior people they would continuously fight Dragons to protect their homeland. But they were losing the battle. They needed to find the Dragon’s nest. But they could never do it. But even moreso, they needed to find a way to fight against the vicious beast.
Enter Ryuuma, and I’m theorizing that he is the creator of the FoxFire Style that Kinemon uses.
I’m not sure how this works, but I’m not gonna leave it up in the air either. That would be lazy of me. So let’s try to explainFoxFire style. I’m gonna theorize here and say it’s done in a similar way that Luffy generates fire with his Red Hawk. A mixture of an extremely high speed slash and haki that creates friction with the air, enough to ignite it. Also of note is how do One Piece swordsman create an air slash?The best example we have ever had is the idea that they slice the air, using their blades so quickly, they create a small momentary vacuum space where the blade has passed through, that when air closes in, it becomes compressed and takes the shape of the slash and continues along the initial direction of force. That’s getting really theoretical, but it’s the only explanation that makes any sense. That and of course, it’s MANGA DERR!!!Now recall that the admirals create an invisible haki barrier against Whitebeard that manifested in the air itself.
What if using haki and the blade as a conduit, just like the admirals used their hands to create a wall, you create a wall width out of the blade. Then the Foxfire style uses that width to have an influential area of the blade’s vacuum slice that is larger, which then can cause Fire to be sucked into it and extinguished? Using the same idea, but in a different manner. We are spit-balling here but bare with me.
I’m thinking this style was created by Ryuuma, to combat Dragons in particular. After Ryuuma created the FoxFire Style, he showcased its power against the Dragon attack and saved the people. Like the original Monsters One Shot, Ryuuma was thought to be a no good samurai, with no skill or worth. A clutz. But he proved them wrong, by saving the Samurai, and eventually dragons stopped attacking Wano altogether.
But he knew something was wrong. They only chased away the Dragons. They didn’t exterminate them. If they weren’t attacking Wano, where would they go?
Credit to Arcxana from DeviantArt for the amazing picture of Zou at Sunset
Yes Zou. Look at this tropical climate. My idea is that either they went out on their own and tracked down Zou or at some point a Dragon came to Wano and collapsed and died, and attached to it was a wounded Mink, who held on for his life. Then it gets revealed to the Samurai that the Dragons they chased off, were now tormenting the Minks.
Why would it go to Zou? Because as we know, Zunisha’s water rain showers bring with it tonnes of food and fish. This could be easily seen as a free meal for a flying predator. Especially one who lost it’s main food source.
Doesn’t look like it would as a Dragon’s next, but my idea stems from the those giant towers in the picture above. Why are they there? What purpose could they possibly serve? The Minks seem to live in the city and the Night Minks have their own residential district at the base of the Whale Forest. None of the Minks seem to live there at all, so what possible reason could they have for building such gigantic structures? My idea?
To shelter from the onslaught of the Dragons centuries ago. Fortresses shrouded in bush would never suffice against the flames of a dragon. So they built structures out of the silt that Zunisha brought up dumped on its back to create shelters that could withstand the heat.
While simultaneously fighting for their survival. Now the Kogetsu Clan and their samurai, led by Ryuuma, went out to defend Zou from the Dragons.
That clan and the Minks bonded and almost brought the Dragons to an end. Now this doesn’t contradict with my other theory on the Minks and the Samurai being enemies at one point in history, because that’s in the Void Century Era. I’m suggesting hundreds of years later, this happened that could have mended relations, specifically with the Kogetsu Clan.
Nekomamushi did say this chapter that the Minks and the Kogetsu Clan, (not all Samurai) are friends. Note also, as I mentioned above, the Daimyo were made up of many different clans collectively.
As for how Ryuuma died, I can’t possibly say. It’s best not to push it too far. This is an unsubstantiated theory after all.
STORY SIMILARITIES WITH SKYPEIA
This section will just highlight some strong parallels that would explain why Zunisha would have this kind of history. And it’s mainly the fact that it shares lots of similarities with Skypeia.
I feel like Ryuuma is very much like Norland, in that’s he’s historical, butnot Void Century historical and an important part of some story Oda wants to tell. All of what I said could be wrong, but it’s fun to speculate.
So to summarize, the Kogetsu Clan are the main clan that oppose Kaidou and the Imperial rule on Wano. Momonosuke is the last heir to that bloodline and Kinemom, Kanjuro and Raizou are all loyal to that family and trying to protect him. They wanted to come to Zou to enlist the Mink’s help in taking down Kaidou’s rule. They also have a group of Samurai back at Wano willing to fight.
Ryuuma was instrumental in saving the Samurai from the onslaught of Dragons in their past and the creator of the Fox Fire style. He and the Kogetsu Clan saved the Minks who were indirectly affected by their defeat of the Dragons and fostered a bond between the two groups.
Hope you guys enjoyed.
