Luffy/Law To Become Big Bosses Of Notorious Future Super-Alliance – The Next New World Superpower?

***Spoiler Alert***
[​IMG]

 

[​IMG]What is it that makes the Yonkou, the World Government & the Pirate Warlords feared across the seas by many? Is it their brute strength, the way certain individuals compose themselves that demands the immediate respect of whoever crosses paths with them or is it simply charisma?

I think, it is the influence that one has on the pirate world. The Yonkou, by what we know, are all heavily involved with a certain market that THEY are running and the WG doesn’t hold leverage over – this is NOT accounting the fact that just one Emperor may well have the potential to wipe the entire marine force from the face of the planet.

Big Mam: markedly invests her protection in return for instalments of something specific (sweets so far.. hope it gets more interesting as the story progresses) – a protection policy. If the quota is not met, she will destroy the place of contract. This cruel method of bargaining is what makes her pirate trade successful – using fear to get results.

Kaidou: is in control of the black market, formerly administered by the, now defeated, Joker. SMILE aside, the black market frequently dealt in with the weapons trade to keep wars among countries active for business. Whoever funds both sides of the war may expect the greatest income in profit. Sadly, that statement holds true in real life too.. That is Kaidou’s market. He’s a master industrialist with a terrible temper.

Blackbeard: is currently growing and strengthening his forces.

Shanks: N/A.

Not to mention that the Yonkou war with each other constantly over territory in the NW to tip the power struggle to their favour.
—————————————–

Now, as seen in the images above, Luffy has been offered a number of 5600 pirates to serve with the Straw Hats as the flag ship. Not only that, he will also have the backing of a pirate crew that was once feared across the globe – the Giant Pirate Crew.
The Straw Hat Pirates will most certainly catch a position of influence for themselves if they had followers that numbered in that many. In fact, if something like this were to happen.. Who else would you imagine joining this new mainframe that is led by a member of the Worst Generation? (If it’s going to be led by Luffy)

My prediction is that Luffy’s character will compel him to reply in the fashion of:

“Eh, seems like a bother. I don’t care what you do, just do what you want.”

Luffy wanted to captain his own crew. But he never wanted an army. This is where Law’s wits come in.. Law sees, not only an opportunity for higher protection and easier access into enemy territory, but a sure-fire way to counter against Kaidou in battle. (Big Mam is Luffy’s enemy, Law has nothing to do with her)

What could be better than 1 member of the Worst Generation governing the world’s most powerful pirate armada? That’s right. 2 Members of the Worst Generation!

Luffy is in control, gives the orders and makes the decisions. Law administers the troops, sends out missions and ensures a healthy information mainframe between all crews. His underground alias becomes ‘Corazon’ – in respect to his former parent-figure and the fact that it says so at the back of his robe might indicate foreshadowing.
A market begins to brew, a market that offers protection in exchange for hospitality, banquets and doctoring for every instance that an allianced crew or member arrives at said place of contract. Luffy’s name, with the gratitude that comes from saving said villages, cities etc. begins to spread like a tempest across the ocean (and is well received by citizens of Dress Rosa, Arabasta, Fishman Island and, soon to be, Kano)

Kaidou and Big Mam hate Luffy. This hatred is to turn into gang wars at sea, you see a pirate member or crew with the enemy alliance, you kill them.. You kill their market, you kill their influence.

Not to say, movements such as the Revolutionary Army may very well consider joining this alliance for the benefit of their own organisations, or at least the countries that they are trying to protect/and or attack.

ZORO’S CURSE AND DAMNATION: WADO ICHIMONJI’S BLESSING

Hello again everyone and welcome to another theory about Zoro and this one I find quite interesting.

If you’ve been reading my other theories about Zoro, you’d know that I said Zoro would gain a fire sword and will lose control of his inner demons in Wano and will “die.” He’ll become a bloodthirsty rampaging demon but he will have assistance in regaining control.

Lets get to Zoro’s fire sword first. Its common knowledge by now that Zoro wants a fire sword and is interested in Wano’s fire cutting technique. However, Zoro already has a fire sword.
[​IMG]

And what sword did Zoro use to cut Ryuma down? The Wado Ichimonji
[​IMG]

In Zoro’s fight with Ryuma, it was the first time we’ve seen him struggle so badly against a REAL swordsman. It was also in this fight that Zoro’s swords were close to breaking.
[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

Its no coincidence that Zoro just so happened to use a fire attack in that moment. Ryuma was a zombie who couldn’t feel pain. The initial cut would’ve done nothing and the fight would’ve continued, resulting in Zoro’s Wado Ichimonji and Sandai Kitetsu breaking. Zoro was assisted.

Something similar happened way back in Alabasta.
[​IMG] [​IMG]

Zoro was no match for Daz Bones and was on the verge on death. Coincidently though, Zoro conveniently learned the hear the breath of all things which was exactly what he needed to beat Bones. Beforehand, Zoro couldn’t understand Koshiro’s teachings.

What bugged me about this scene was that the sword he heard the breathing of in the panel was the Wado Ichimonji and….
[​IMG] [​IMG]

He defeated Daz Bones with the Wado Ichimonji.

Where am I going with this? Keep reading if you want to find out.
****************************************

I believe that all cursed words are possessed by a soul/spirit. Souls can be contained inside fruits so why not objects? We’ve even a sword with a DF ability(Spandam).

Swords possessed by bad/evil spirits become cursed swords. For example, Hakuba is the bad spirit of Durandal and his curse takes over Cavendish whenever he loses consciousness.

The Wado Ichimonji has a spirit inside of it as well, but it is not cursed, as the spirit is good/pure.

The spirit of the Wado Ichinmonji is Kuina. The Wado Ichimonji, in a way, is a blessed/holy sword. It even has a white sheath to symbolize it as such. Wado Ichimonji is Zoro’s humanity.

However, the blessing of the Wado Ichimonji only works in critical moments because not only is Zoro’s spirit itself that of a savage beast, he has a cursed sword Sandai Kitetsu, and the evil entity of that blade is leading Zoro on a path of bloodlust and carnage. Sandai Kitetus’ sheath is red and it symbolizes bloodlust.

Zoro acquired the Black Blade Shuusi and it has a black sheath. However, the sword and the sheath has a streak of red, also indicating bloodlust.

Over the timeskip, Shuusui seems to have become Zoro’s favorite blade as he used it for all of his one-sword style attacks Post-TS. Pre-ts, it was the Wado Ichimonji. This symbolizes Zoro gradually losing his humanity and becoming more n’ more like a demon.

Its like a battle of Yin vs Yang. In Wano, Zoro will lose control of his inner demons but the Wado Ichimonji will bring him back to his senses. The Sandai Kitetsu will be replaced with the Nidai Kitetsu.

LAPUTA AND ITS MYTHOLOGICAL INHABITANTS

I’ll like to welcome you guys in another of my absurd theories!!

Oda has been always been inspired from folk tales and fairy tales.In his story he has put reference from stories like The Singing Bone(Brook),Snow white (Alvida’s mirror),Noah Ark(Noah),Pinocchio (Usopp ) and a lot more.

In Dressrosa, Oda drew this panel-

[​IMG]

Nico Robin was tied down to the Earth with the help of the strings.

[​IMG]

This scene was inspired by Gulliver Travels, a novel written by Jonathan Swift .The Lilliputian,i.e the dwarfs tied up Gulliver to the ground as Gulliver laid on the ground,unconscious.

This sounds similar to Robin, who found herself tied up after regaining consciousness.

Another thing to notice is that unlike in the Gulliver travels,the dwarfs in One Piece are gullible.

I believe that this is more of a reference to Gulliver,who like his name suggest, was Gullible.

But what is more interesting is that there is more to Gulliver travels than just the encounter of Gulliver with the Lilluput dwarves.There are more places in the story that Gulliver visited.

The places that Gulliver visited are :
1)Lilliput and Blefuscu – inhabited by Dwarves
2)Brobdingnag-Inhabited with Giants.
3)Glubbdubdrib – Isle of Sorcerers.
4)Luggnagg – Based near Japan, with a feudal system and immortal citizens

5)Laputa – A Mobile floating island
6)Balnibarbi.

As far as we have seen , Noland has visited Green Bit , the land of the Dwarves.
We have also seen that the land of Giants exists in the world if One Piece ,as the name of Elbaf.

Fable is the word that comes out when Elbaf is written from the opposite end.
A Fable as a noun means – a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral while as a verb,fable means – tell fictitious tales.

Now , I would like you to read the 2nd paragraph in this page.Do note the words ‘fable in reverse’

I do believe that Elbaf will also be a reference from Gulliver travels.

Similarlly ,there is Balnibarbi,another land that Gulliver visited in the story.I believe Balnibarbi is a reference to Shandoria,the land where the Golden City was placed upon.

These are some words that would describe Balnibarbi –

Apart from Munodi’s own estate, which seems to flourish and thrive, the rest of the land has been ruined and eroded away. It seems that several people decided to visit Laputa, and were dissatisfied with their own existence down below.

[​IMG]


In Shandoria, the farms and crops were in ruin.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

The Shandoria houses looked pale when compared to the Golden City.The Golden City in itself looked like the Black sheep in the island.

This is much similar to Balnibarbi, where except for Muondi’s estate,everything looked in ruins.

The Shandorians were primitive men like the people in Balnibarbi.

Also similar to Gulliver travels,where the people went to Laputa,the people of Shandoria came from the Moon to the Earth.

————————————–
As from above,you have probably seen that Oda has made references from Gulliver travels in quite a few instances.

But,here,I will be basically mentioning about Laputa.

Laputa is a flying island. It is about 4.5 miles in diameter, with an adamantine base, which its inhabitants can maneuver in any direction using magnetic levitation.

In Dressrosa,Oda has shown one more reference of Gulliver travels.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Do notice in both the pictures,there are similarities like the island on the Northwest,the borders of the islands.
The position of Green Bit in the first map is taken by Laputa on the 2nd map.

Now before I go on any further,let me describe to you the inhabitants of Laputa.

Laputa’s population consists mainly of educated people, who are fond of mathematics, astronomy, music and technology. Servants make up the rest of the population.

The Laputans have mastered magnetic levitation .

Laputa is a male-dominated society. Wives often request to leave the island to visit the land below; however, these requests are almost never granted because the women who leave Laputa never want to return. The clothes of Laputans, which do not fit, are decorated with astrological symbols and musical figures. They spend their time listening to the music of the spheres. They believe in astrology and worry constantly that the sun will go out.
The Laputan women are highly sexed and adulterous, preferring men from the island of Balnibarbi. The Laputan husbands, who are so abstracted in mathematical and musical calculations, don’t know that their wives are adulterous.

So intent are the Laputans in their scientific studies that they cannot function in the everyday world, or even perceive it.
Now,Laputa is a male dominated society filled with people who liked to research.Also Laputa,is an island that moved upon itself.

Doesn’t this reminds of this place in One Piece?

[​IMG]

Weatheria,the sky island whose inhabitants studies the weather and climates of the One Piece world.

[​IMG]

The sky island was mobile as it drifts with the winds.And the people would often descent to collect supplies.

Also the society looked to be full of males that love to research the effects of weather.

[​IMG]

But,let me clarify it, Weatheia is not the Laputa of One Piece.Rather it is a man made establishment at a small sky island.

First of all,let me point out to you this picture

[​IMG]

The island if Weatheria seems to have machines fitted inside it.
Now studying the weather seemed possible but the efficiency in creation of machines pointed me out that the people of Weatheria has much potentials in other fields than just weather and climate.

Also,it seemed strange that there are no children in Weatheria.This seemed strange to me that if Weatheria is a island ,then his come the old men there could not think of offspring ,who will continue their studies.

And one more point I’ll like to mention.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Do note that except for Boin Archipelago and Weatheria, there are nicknames for each other island shown above.I can understand for Boin archipelago, as it is an uninhabited island and hence the name in itself suggests the nature of island.

But what about Weatheria,an island that has inhabitants and have been known to many countries as Weatheria used to collect supplies.

We know,that Oda does plans out things and give a fitting and unique name to anything , whether it be a person or country.But when I read the name Weatheria,it didn’t fit more to Oda’s style.Usually Oda would put more of a fitting name to such a beautiful country,like as he did for Boin Archipalego.
I beleive Weatheria was created from the hand of the men of the Laputa. It is a establishment that controls the research over weather and climate and so it was named Weatheria.
It was not a country since long ago and rather it can be called an establishment and part of Laputa hence no nickname was given to it.

Now,we have been also introduced to a floating mass of body that levitated .

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

—————————————-
Now,in Skypiea,we have been introduced to two new races,Skypieans and Shandians.It is my belief that in this sky island also,there will be a race.

Indeed,but before that let me tell you,Oda is a huge fan of Dragon ball z .Rather I would like you to read this interview to know how much Oda liked Dragon Ball(the first version).
Oda has also shown two references to Dragon Ball :

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

This time I believe Oda will take inspiration from these guys.

[​IMG] [​IMG]

This time i am refering to the Demon clan(mazoku) of Dragon Ball manga.Do note that from the interview I gave above,we can determine that Oda does admire Dragon Ball .There is also a special characteristoc of many of the demons in Dragon Ball ,that I’ll mention later.

Now let me point out the term Mazoku.

Mazoku(魔族) is a common concept in Japanese fantasy referring to a clan of beings born with supernatural and paranormal powers.

In fictional usage,The meaning of mazoku differs from series to series. Some stories coins the term general to all evil beings (instead of a single biological species) that are enemies or nemesis of humans and good gods; while some others used it to specify a certain tribe (not necessarily evil). Since the word does not refer to any specific fantasy species, what the term refers to varies from series to series. Sometimes, it is portrayed as other biological species, with individuals having similar characteristics, while other series having unique features on different individuals.
They look completely human .

Now , I believe that Oda has used a race , that are similar to the Mazoku,and can also be coined as one because of their powers.

Although the term maō is also used as king of mazoku, it is also commonly used as a general term of king of demons, king of devils, and more general, just an overlord, a dark lord or an archenemy of the hero. Having a maō in a series does not necessarily mean that there is a mazoku clan for it to rule, a maō can simply rule humans, monsters, anything or nothing at all. Der Erlkönig, by Johann Wolfgang widely translated as “Elf King” in English, was translated as 魔王 (Maō) in Japanese.

Also, do note,Mazoku are often connected with magic.

But the most important of their characteristics, which is what the special characteristic of the demon in Dragon Ball , is that they have pointed ears.

Getting my point: Magic,Pointed ears, Looking normal humans.

I believe Oda will introduce the Elves in Laputa.


An elf (plural: elves) is a type of supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore.Reconstructing the early concept of an elf depends almost entirely on texts in Old English or relating to Norse Mythology .Later evidence for elves appears in diverse sources such as medical texts, prayers, ballads, and folktales.

Do note that Oda is a fan of Norse mythologies and has introduced Centaurs , Dwarf , Giants, Harpies and etc.

Modern fantasy literature has revived the elves as a race of semi-divine beings of human stature who are friendly with nature and animals. Although the álfar of Norse Mythology has influenced the concept of elves in fantasy, the elves are different from Norse and the traditional elves found in Middle ages folklore.

A hallmark of fantasy elves is also their long and pointed ears (a convention begun with a note of Tolkien’s that the ears of elves were “leaf-shaped”).The length and shape of these ears varies depending on the artist or medium in question. Post-Tolkien fantasy elves tend to be immortal or longeval in comparison to humans, more beautiful and wiser, with sharper senses and perceptions, and abilities or crafts that seem alien or magical.

Though Tolkien originally conceived his Elves as more fairy-like than they afterwards became, he also based them on the god-like and human-sized Ljósálfar of Norse mythology. His elves were conceived as a race of beings similar in appearance to humans but fairer and wiser, with greater spiritual powers, keener senses, and a closer empathy with nature. They are great smiths and fierce warriors on the side of good.

Tolkien’s Elves of Middle-earth are biologically immortal in the sense that they are not vulnerable to disease or the effects of old age (closer to the concept of indefinite lifespan than true immortality). Although they can be killed in battle like humans and may alternately wither away from grief, their spirits only pass to the blessed land in the west called Valinor, whereas humans’ souls leave the world entirely.

Post-Tolkien fantasy elves (popularized by the Dungeons & Dragonsrole-playing game) tend to be beautiful, fair, and close in size to humans (usually taller, sometimes shorter). A hallmark of fantasy elves is also their long and pointed ears. In gaming, and to some extent fantasy literature, elves as a rule have a greater depth of knowledge (especially regarding magic) than their human counterparts, due to a racial inclination as well as their extreme age.

If you have read all this ,well kudos to you…

Now,in One Piece,there have been many a instances where the term magic,spell or sorcery has been used.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Indeed,we have also met two fortune tellers also , Basil Hawkins and Madame Sharly.
Basil Hawkins was also called the Magician in the One Piece world.

Nami’s Sorcery climatact had improved and its name also changed after the Time skip . She was also called a wizard by the New Fishmam pirates.

The Weatheria people also wore wizard clothes and indeed looked like wizards with their beards.

Also Harpy and Yuki-onna are magical entities that Monet transformed into.

So,with so many references, we will get to see magic in the one piece world and that us mainly through the Elves in Laputa.

————————————————

Also now I would like to mention thing,we have seen dwarves in the current story aside from the guys in Weatheria.

I am talking about Monet,Donquixote underling at the ports.

First of all I’ll rather put that her character and her past has yet not been explored and I doubt won’t explore her and Sugar in the future.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Also there is no introductory box for Sugar while other members of the Donquixote crew did get one each.
This means that Oda is planning to introduce Sugar later .

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Both Monet and Vergo got strange Introductory panels.We also know that Monet was not indeed an Harpy and more of a human.

Later it was revealed that Vergo was a Vice Admiral and was given a proper introduction.

So in the end,Monet and Sugar are the only ones that did not get their correct introduction panels.I believe that irrespective of Monet being dead or alive,she has to play a role in a future arc(Laputa arc).

Also in volume 77 SBS, Oda mentioned

Sugar and Monet were rescued from an extremely misfortunate environment by Doflamingo himself, and as sisters aged 9 and 17, they resolved to throw their lives away if it were for the sake of the Family. They were provided with Devil Fruits after joining. You see, Doflamingo is very observant of the “environments” that people grow up in.

It’s the extremely misfortune environment at Laputa that Oda is referring to here. Women at Laputa were often adulterous and I believe Monet and Sugar are not biological sisters.Because of very less regard given to women in Laputa,Monet and Sugar grew up in a environment which discriminated of women.

[​IMG]

It has been hinted that Monet did study astrology while Sugar did not show any traits of being excelled in a field of science yet.

Do notice that Sugar eyes are blue which is a recessive trait in usual.
I believe that Sugar is the offspring of a Elf couple while Monet is the offspring of one of Sugar’s parents and a slave.

[​IMG]

Sugar has been based on Amelie Poulain,a person who spent her childhood at home having private tutoring.
Similarly Sugar stayed her whole life at a private home in Laputa with Monet taking care of her and fulfilling her needs.
Because of which Sugar got hold of some eccentric qualities and behaved like a spoiled brat.
Also Monet got experienced in child rearing which she used to raise the children at Punk Hazard.

Now for Monet’s attacks, we already know that Doflamingo has based the name of some of his attacks from the past incidents.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

I believe Snow fence was a reference to her past where she had to live in a place with limited movements.She was forbidden from exiting Laputa and perhaps a fence would be best to describe her life at Laputa.

[​IMG]

Perhaps this is her strangest attacks where is has not been explained ,why the rabbits were used.
Elves are often resembled with rabbits because of their sharp pointed ears,which looks the same as rabbits.

I believe ,during her stay with Sugar,Sugar often used to call her a rabbit,hence the attack name came up.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Do notice that at no instance in the Manga(not the anime),Monet or Sugar’s ears were showed.I would had called this a coincidence but for when Monet’s ears were not shown when she had short hair,I believed it is not a coincidence. Rather it was to hide the fact that she is a elf.

Yuki-onna and Harpies,are sometimes also shown as magical beings having no ill will though they are also referred to as evil ones .

Also Sugar ‘turning people into Toys’ can be also called as magic,as in magic turning ‘objects into animals and birds’ are a common trick.

Taking all these points and checking the characteristics of Laputans and Elves given above like efficiency in astronomy, keener senses etc , I believe Monet and Sugar are in actual a elf.
————————————————–

So who do I believe will take part in Laputa arc.

The arc will center Nami ,a person who is obviously referred with magic and witches.It will be in this arc that perhaps her Climatact will get a huge needed upgrade.
Also in the SBS,Oda told that he actually planned a Nami vs Monet fight in Punk Hazard.Ironically it would be a fight between two magic users.

[​IMG]

Also Haredas has been shown to occupy a orb,which usually is used by Sorcerers and witches.

Also , coming to witches , Big Mom will also take part in this arc.

[​IMG]

Also , Capone, whose ship was pulled towards Laputa,has been shown to be involved with Big Mom.Perhaps he has became an ally of Big Mom after his travels in Laputa.
Perhaps we may see Sugar again and even Hawkins.

THE WITCH OF OZ: THE “TRUE” MONSTER TRIO

strawhatfamily_by_sergiart-d701iqt
Section I

I believe that by the end of the series, there will still be a Monster Trio, only it’s members are not those whom we usually assign the title to. With the drastic increase of force the Straw Hats are likely going to gain in the future, whether it be Sub-Captains or simply more core Straw Hat Crewmember, Luffy’s forces are certainly upping their game. While Zoro and Sanji will undoubtedly remain his right and left-hand men, the Straw Hats will gain such notoriety “monstrous” strength, that designating the term will undoubtedly become rather nullified. However, the legend of the “Monster Trio” WILL carry on. It will carry on via new flag holders, the trio that coined the term in the first place. Nami, Ussop and Chopper. Why? Allow me to explain.

Once upon a time, the six members of the Straw Hat Crew were divided in half between two trios:
The “Monster Trio” and the “Weakling Trio“.

This was something the weakling trio themselves took on board, accepting the fact that their fellow Crewmembers possessed outrageous and abnormal strength. The gap at that time was clear, yet we still respected the “Weakling Trio” for they at least always tried their best. One of the major ways they did this was through trickery and deceit, as well as entertaining dumb luck (a theme recurrent in the Straw Hats), in other words; showmanship. Even Chopper would get the edge on opponents by the unpredictability of his abilities.

Now, move on two years, and they have more Crew mates, the power levels have shifted somewhat and due to varying battle styles, it has become harder to determine who is superior to who within the crew. There are obvious things that some succeed in compared to others, but I like to think that sometimes the Straw Hat Crew is one big rock-paper-scissors collection. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. However, it is only now that the Luffy-Zoro-Sanji Trio are beginning to finally have allies of a comparable power level. This broadens the terminology even further. The “Monster Trio” title is fading, but Luffy-Zoro-Sanji shall always remain a unstoppable combo.

But if the “Monster Trio” title is fading, then to me the “Weakling Trio” title is dead and buried. Or at least will be very very soon. These characters have grown up a lot since they were introduced. Yes they are the same characters with many of the same faults, but they demonstrate those faults less and less and they have developed their skills enormously, with plenty more room for improvement. Even considering that Chopper probably eclipses Brook regarding raw strength these days only makes my rock-paper-scissors concept all the more relevant.

Section Conclusion: Calling Nami, Ussop and Chopper the “Weakling Trio” after the progress they’ve made, and comparing them to Franky, Robin and Brook is unfair. On the other hand, they will always probably hold that title in our head due to the many years of that being the case. That is, unless Oda does something about it.

Section II

First let me predict several developments that Nami, Ussop and Chopper will receive at sometime in the future.

Nami: So far in the series we have witnessed two characters who showcase obvious signs of witch lore.
These are Big Mum and Katarina Devon. I shant go into too much detail regarding these two, considering there are several theories concerning these facts and i’m sure many have made such connections already.
To keep it simple, Big mum has been related to the witch of Hansel & Gretel concerning her candy obsession. Her flag has a branch on it, linking her to paganism. Her facial features match the grizzly classic representation of witches and given her size, flight seems her most likely form of transport. Her ship sings and her subordinates wear magician outfits, enough said.
As for Katarina, Devon relates to the Devon Witches, a famous historical witching incident. Her weapon links her to the moon, something corely associated to paganism and witchcraft and just like Big Mum, her features are damn witchy. More significantly, Katarina is on Blackbeard’s crew, and whether or not they end up fighting, it is true to say that Luffy and Blackbeard’s crew seem to match up in more ways than one.

Now, it is crucial to understand that witches often appear in covens, typically of three. So far in One Piece we have encountered other females that have been compared to hags and witches, but none that fully satisfy the connection of a Pirate Coven Trio. Dr. Kureha is not a Pirate and Bonney isn’t witchy enough for me. Nami on the otherhand…

Putting past the simple fact that she is a clever and resourceful young girl, a situation that would be enough to condemn you for witchcraft in some periods of time, Zoro has even called her a witch in the past. Getting juicier. Nami studied on Weatheria, and island containing scientists dressed primarily as WIZARDS. Her weapon itself is comparable to a staff, or when disconnected into three, even a wand.
The biggest clue however is when on Fishman Island, an enemy cried out her powers were magic, yet she immediately declared them to be scientific. It would be of typical One Piece fashion to change Nami’s bounty name to be both something funny yet relevant to the series. As such, I believe that Nami shall no longer be called “Burglar Cat” Nami by the Marines, and instead be called “Sorceress” Nami. Thus making her the final witch of the coven.

Ussop: I n fact have next nothing to be said about Ussop that hasn’t been said before. He will likely grow in strength, courage and skill, as well as further develop his Haki. However, let us not forget where Ussop’s origins lie. He shall forever be the master of trickery in the Straw Hat crew, and I believe his bounty and and bounty name shall reflect this, especially after the whole “God Ussop” situation. :lmao:

I can’t predict what these will be, but I just want remind everyone that Ussop is indeed the Master of Showmanship! (I’ll explain in Section III)

Chopper: Chopper Chopper Chopper… Easily the most physically strong of the Weakling Trio, he is currently in my eyes the closest to pulling away from the title with Ussop in hot second. Just like the other two, he is often underestimated due to appearance, perhaps the most so, and his opponents pay the price.
I believe that Chopper may well be the first Straw Hat to unlock his Awakening, as I believe he is the one who has experimented with his Devil Fruit the most, even more than Luffy. Once he does, his upgrade will be phenomenal, and his Awakened form potentially more terrifying even than “Monster Point”.
Speaking of Monster, isn’t that the name that Chopper has been called ever since he’s been introduced. Isn’t “Monster” the word that has always clung to Chopper, only for him to embrace being one for the sake of Luffy and the Crew?

I believe that once the Marines know Chopper isn’t the “Cotton-Candy Eater” they know him to be, his new and rightfully deserved Bounty poster will read “Monster” Chopper.
And what better place for a Monster…. than in the “Monster Trio”?

Section III

Here my theory comes to its climactic cultivation. The point that I predict all these pieces of information will collide.

At some point in the One Piece future, I, and many other fans predict there will be an arc featuring the Emerald City. Who resides within the Emerald City? Why, the Wizard of Oz, an all powerful, all seeing, all phony wizard who is in fact.. yes, a phony. But what a grand impression he made! Using stage effects to create a colossal version of himself capable of amazing spells and feats!
Kinda sounds like something Nami, Chopper and Ussop would cook up to get out of a tight spot right? Right.

Nami represents the Witch, but lets not forget her “magic” is science (and thus metaphorically speaking stage effects), and she was trained by wizards! Even her staff hints to the fact that she is witch with a wizard’s magic. This will also be Ussop’s master piece, the ultimate piece of trickery prior him becoming a truly strong warrior of the sea. And of course, it’s Chopper who will be the all powerful being. The Monster. My prediction is this:

There will come a moment within the Emerald City where the Straw Hats require assistance from the “Weakling Trio”. Nami shall use her illusionary mirage techniques to create a gigantic version of an Awakened Chopper. Chopper shall pretend to be an all powerful godly being, pretending to create spells which Ussop shall make occur using his sniping skill and inventiveness. Ussop shall also be the announcer, distorting his voice via Dials to claim to be some sort of God.

This monstrous apparition, upon discovery, shall cause the World Government to label these three Straw Hats as the “Monster Trio”.

I believe this is fitting for the reasons that, as stated earlier, these three rely on stage they are presented with to win their fights more than others. They use showmanship and intimidation to win battles more than others. To gain infamy in such a way as this fits perfectly with their characters, even the fact that Chopper is perceived as some sort of divine monster is perfect.

While all other Straw Hat members will gain further infamy in unrelated ways, this seems a perfect way for the new Monster Trio to earn awe from the world. It will consist of a Witch, a God, and of course a Monster.

THE ALLIANCE OF 21 KINGDOMS: HEAVEN’S CIVIL WAR AND THE TRUE MEANING OF D.

As with most of my theories i’m going to start in the middle and then explain myself, because I have no idea how to organise these things better – I believe that the Ancient Kingdom was originally a member of the World Government

Why, you ask? I’m sure we’re all familiar with Oda’s love of referencing other works of fiction. From Norse mythology to the Wizard of Oz, and of course Impel Down being largely based on Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy

There is likely another reference to Christian-inspired epic poetry in One Piece. Specifically, John Milton’s Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost details both Lucifer’s war against God, as well as his journey to the Garden of Eden in order to tempt Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge. So why do I think this is referenced in One Piece?

Let’s start with the tree of knowledge. This is a common abbreviation and the full name is “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil”. But i’ll come back to that. The tree of knowledge is directly referenced in One Piece
[​IMG]

The Oharan library. Known as the tree of knowledge. As we all know, it contained a Poneglyph. Poneglyphs are believed to contain the knowledge of the void century, which will likely reveal that the World Government aren’t as righteous as they’d have their member nations believe. “The knowledge of good and evil”, then

This casts the ancient kingdom then, in the role of Lucifer and his army. I’m not sure of the specifics of their falling out with the other members but given what we know of Joyboy it was likely over treatment of non-human species, though this is irrelevant. They inevitably began a civil war with the “Gods” of Mariejois

Of course the Ancient Kingdom were defeated, but they left the Poneglyphs, containing the knowledge of good and evil, for their descendants to find and reveal to the world

The D. Family

The journey through the Grand Line is representative of Satan’s journey through the abyss outside of hell to reach Eden. It is the goal of the D.’s to use the knowledge of good and evil to reveal the World Government’s true nature to the world

This all makes a particular line by everyone’s favourite nerd dad Corazon MUCH more poignant. The D.’s are God’s natural enemy. That’s right, I believe that all those people insisting that the D. means “devil” are correct, but not for any of the reasons they believe. Nothing to do with demons or devil fruits or turning evil, but in a much more symbolic sense. It could very well actually be short for something entirely different yet still hold this meaning

As an aside, this also sheds some light on the true meaning of Blackbeard’s jolly roger

[​IMG]
It’s not a Cerberus. I’m going to circle back to Divine Comedy here instead of Paradise Lost, because in it, Satan is described as follows –

“he had three faces: one in front bloodred;
and then another two that, just above
the midpoint of each shoulder, joined the first;
and at the crown, all three were reattached;”

Blackbeard’s jolly roger is actually a depiction of Satan. This may indicate that he is descended from the leader of the AK himself, or perhaps that Blackbeard is aware of the meaning of D.

HAWK EYES & RED HAIR

IMG_114391328787263

Dracule Mihawk “Hawk Eyes” and Shanks “Red Hair”, have a very interesting relationship. We know they used to duel in the past, and their Deep Blue data book pages state that they’re each other’s respective rivals. I wish to explore their relationship, to the best of my ability, and clear some possible misunderstandings, that many people have developed. I’ll start, by listing some manga facts we know concerning their mutual relationship, before I make my inferences, deductions and conclusions on this.

Facts

Up to ten years, from before Luffy set out from East Blue, Shanks and Mihawk had been having duels.

Mihawk sought out Shanks for these duels.

When Mihawk approached the Island, he commented on the mediocrity of the island and stated that it was something typical of him.

When Mihawk visited Shanks on an island he was chilling on to deliver him Luffy’s bounty, Shanks asked him “come for a duel? I am not feeling to good right now.” To which Mihawk Replied “I have not come to settle things with a one-armed man”. Shanks subsequently invited Mihawk to a party, he even insisted coercing him into celebrating with him.

During this visit, when some members of Shanks’ crew saw Mihawk they were visibly petrified and scurrying away. Mihawk told them to take him to their Captain. The top ten of Shanks crew did not react, seemingly accustomed to Mihawk’s presence.

At the time of the visit, Shanks was already a Yonkou.

Back in East Blue, on the day Shanks lost his arm the mountain bandits did not recognise Shanks.

Oda Stated that Shanks hasn’t lost any power since he lost his arm.

Shanks could voluntarily control his conqueror’s Haki at this point in time, as he used it to chase away the “Lord of The Coast”. The sea king who took his arm.

When Shanks visited Whitebeard, Whitebeard was very curious about Shanks missing arm. He said “Your duels with Hawk Eye were legendary, echoing throughout the entire Grand line. Thus it came as a surprise to us when you came back from the East Blue short an Arm”

He asked him “What kind of monster did you lose it to?” To which Shanks replied “I bet it on the new age.”

At Marineford, when Mihawk decided to move against Luffy, he made a mental apology to Shanks “I am sorry Red Hair, but I won’t hold back against this child…….or will the child of fate die at this black sword”.

At Marineford, When Shanks appeared, Mihawk left the battle. When he was asked to come back, he replied; “I agreed to assist the World Government, in their war with Whitebeard. But fighting Red Hair was not part of the agreement”.

A few years before the Marineford war, Mihawk settled down at Kuraigana Island in Paradise.

We do not know when Shanks became a Yonkou, Mihawk became the World’s Greatest Swordsman, or when he became a Schichibukai. His Deep Blue Data Book page says:

“He’s the World’s Greatest Swordsman, who has been reigning over the path of the sword, for many long years.”

Deduction, Inferences and Conclusions

At the time Shanks lost his arm he was already a Very famous pirate, and/or a Yonkou.

We know that Mihawk and Shanks duels echoed throughout the Grand Line. This is according to Whitebeard. Whitebeard, who is one of the most condescending people in the series. E.g calling Akainu a magma brat, or calling Shanks a squirt. For Whitebeard, to state that they echoed throughout the Grand Line and were legendary, then these duels must have been epic. Something similar to Akainu and Aokiji’s duel that lasted ten days and changed the climate and topology of an entire Island. Of course both Mihawk and Shanks likely didn’t have a devil fruit, so there was likely just damage to the vegetation and such slicing mountains etc.

Let’s not forget, that Whitebeard was acknowledging Shanks strength on the basis of his duels with Mihawk. Basically; someone strong enough to duel Hawk Eyes, and have him seek you out came back from east blue short an arm. “It came as a surprise when you came back from East Blue short an arm”. “What kind of monster did you lose it to?” He’d already acknowledged Shanks strength, he was asking what kind of monster was strong enough to take Shanks arm. And calling someone or somebody a monster from someone as condescending as Whitebeard, is a feat. That is whoever/whatever took Shanks arm was a monster by Whitebeard’s own standards. This was all alluding to Shanks strength, and meant that Shanks was a very powerful pirate whom Whitebeard acknowledged his strength.

“Came back from East Blue”. Whitebeard had been a New World Pirate, from before Roger died. Saying came back, means that Shanks returned from the East Blue to the New World. This means Shanks was a new World pirate, which reinforces my belief that Shanks and Mihawk had been duelling in the New World. Whitebeard also stated “to us”. This may have referred to the other Yonkou, or at least the other Pirates of Whitebeard’s crew

Now a lot of people believed Shanks wasn’t a Yonkou yet, and that he grew exponentially over the ten years since he lost his arm. Well, we now know that before he lost his arm, he was strong enough that Whitebeard recognised his strength, and stated that whatever had took his arm must have been a monster. Oda stated: “Shanks hasn’t lost any power since losing his arm”. This means that he hasn’t become any weaker since his arm loss. It doesn’t mean, that he has become stronger. Oda never stated that. If Shanks did indeed grow exponentially over the ten years, then He wouldn’t even be at Whitebeard’s level, he’d have been much stronger. Whitebeard was already past his prime, and only growing weaker, while Shanks most likely grew stronger. Why Oda needed to make that statement, was because Shanks lost his sword arm. He was a swordsman, who lost his sword arm. He’d have had to relearn the sword with his other arm. Oda’s statement, that Shanks didn’t lose any power, means that Shanks is at least at pre arm loss levels. Now I know Whitebeard didn’t call Shanks a Yonkou, but he did call him a Great Pirate. Such acknowledgement from Whitebeard is incredible, seeing as Whitebeard never even used the term Yonkou. He never even called Roger the Pirate King. Whitebeard’s acknowledgement, of Great Pirate, screams Yonkou to me. Thus the belief that Shanks grew exponentially over the ten years strong enough to be a Yonkou, when he had already reached his prime {he was 27, when he lost his arm} is very baseless.

Now you’re all going to tell me, that If Shanks was a Yonkou, that the Bandits would have recognised him. That’s baseless, as virtually NO ONE outside the Grand Line knew what the Yonkou were. Look at Don Krieg, he dreamed of conquering the Grand Line. His arrogance, screams that he had no Idea of the Yonkou. What about Arlong, thinking of conquering the World. A similar situation. None of them had shown ideas of knowing about the Yonkou. What about Usopp, all he knew was that his father was a Pirate. He didn’t know, that he was a Yonkou’s crewman, and second ate. {Shanks data book page stated he founded the Red Hair pirates, with Yasopp and Benn Beckam). Even if Pirate scum like Krieg and Arlong had no idea what the Yonkou were, at least Usopp should have known. This suggests to me, that knowledge of the Yonkou was restricted to the Grand Line. It further reinforces my belief that Shanks was a Yonkou (Or at least one of the 4 strongest Pirates of the New World when he lost his arm).

After Shanks Lost His Arm.

I think, that after Shanks went back to the New World, Mihawk sought him out for a duel. He then found out that Shanks had lost an arm. Either he refused to battle Shanks again, knowing it was his sword arm that he lost, or they duelled, and Mihawk won. He was surprised at the ease, with which he defeated Shanks. Either way, Shanks sat him down and told him a story, or Mihawk inquired about his signature Straw hat, which was missing from his head. Shanks then told him about Luffy, and how he lost his arm saving Luffy. He also mentioned the promise that he had made with Luffy.

I based the above, on the fact that it was Mihawk who went to deliver Shanks his bounty. Probably while he was in the New World. The 30 million bounty, of an East Blue rookie, may not make New World news. This indicates that Mihawk knew about the relationship between Shanks and Luffy, he even commented on it, when he met Shanks. Mihawk had previously encountered Luffy, back in East Blue, he even asked him about his dream. Maybe to find out if he was truly the one, that Shanks had told him about. Or to test his conviction.

After Mihawk lost his rival in Shanks, He became the World’s Greatest Swordsman. To this end, I believe he either defeated Silvers Rayleigh, or the Gorosei swordsman. My reason, being that when we saw Mihawk at Roger’s execution when he was 19, he didn’t have his trademark coat/cloak. During the Edd war, we saw Rayleigh with a cloak that looks uncannily like Mihawk’s current cloak. This kind of subtle hint, is the type Oda uses. He may have been foreshadowing, that that cloak is the cloak of the World’s Greatest Swordsman, and Mihawk may have won it from Rayleigh. Art any rate even the Gorosei swordsman, acknowledges Mihawk as the greatest. We know Mihawk had been a swordsman, for a very long time as When Oda drew the Schichibukai as kids Mihawk was drawn in a kendo outfit, holding that wooden practice sword they use. He likely aspired to be the World’s Greatest. We also know Rayleigh taught Shanks. {In Rayleigh’s flashback when he saw Shanks and told him about Luffy, Shanks called him teacher}. After achieving his goal, Mihawk stayed for a while in the New World, but grew quickly bored. Swordsmen challenged him for his title, but none were strong enough.

Shortly after, he was approached by the Government, to become a Warlord. Seeing it as an opportunity to kill his boredom, and find some worthy enemies he accepted their invitation. Now I know that we were told, that the warlords, were all former pirates, but it was Yossaku and Johnny, who said that. Don Krieg said that Mihawk gains his sword skills form a devil fruit. I don’t hear anyone, saying that he has a swordsman swordsman fruit or anything. My point is that those two bounty hunters, aren’t exactly very reliable. I don’t think he was a pirate. I believe he was a privateer: He has no crew, no ship and NO JOLLY ROGER. The most important characteristic of a pirate. He sails around in a one seater coffin of a boat. I believe, that’s the boat he has been using since he became a reputable swordsman.

I believe he then went back to paradise and settled on Kuraigana Island. He had no reason to stick around in the New World anymore. I have a theory, regarding that, but there is not much evidence to support it so I won’t mention it here. I hate theories that aren’t based on enough evidence, but things people think will be cool or like. E.g Shilliew Killing Mihawk, and becoming Zoro’s EOS opponent.

Their Present Relationship

It seems doubtful, that Mihawk still met Shanks after the occasion in which he told him about Luffy, because Shanks asked him if he came for a duel when he saw him. This either indicates that they continued duelling regularly, after he lost his arm. Or that they haven’t duelled since, and Shanks thought that Mihawk may have come for a match after all these years. Maybe he feels, I’m now good enough to face him off in combat, or has come to see how much my skill has recovered. Hah no one knows what Shanks was thinking. However, when Mihawk attacked Luffy, he apologised to Shanks. This was because, he knew how much Luffy meant to Shanks. It makes me think, that to some extent the duo have an amiable relationship. When Shanks appeared at Marineford, Mihawk refrained from fighting him. This is likely due to their mutual respect. Though they’re official enemies, with one a war lord, and the other a Yonkou, it doesn’t stop them from drinking together, as occurred when Shanks celebrated Luffy’s venture into piracy. It is likely that a conflict between the two of them, will never ensue.

Whether Mihawk really considers Shanks a “one armed has been”, or feels that battling him with the unfair advantage he has, is below him, I can’t say for sure. I am however leaning towards the latter option. This is seeing as he appears to be someone with a high sense of honour. I highly doubt that he’ll strike a swordsman on their back. With his sense of honour, he refuses any advantage in battle. Think of the Elbaf giants who duked it out on Little Garden. The attitude one had, when he found out that he won, because the other was internally wounded. Mihawk, won’t want to win against Shanks like that, this may stain the memory of the legendary duels they had in the New World. Furthermore, fighting with Shanks, anywhere outside their duels, not on their own terms may be abhorrent to Hawk Eyes. I feel, that there is a sort of parallel between Luffy – Shanks and Zoro – Mihawk. Shanks sees his Captain, the late Roger in Luffy, while Mihawk has hope, that Zoro will be the one to surpass him and bring an end to the days of his boredom.

TREASURE OF MARIEJOIS AND JOY BOY’S PAST

I think some of you people forgot that Celestial Dragons and Gorosei posses some kind of national treasure
What could it be ?

[​IMG]
I really couldn’t find any clue about this national treasure,so i will say my opinions
Some say it is eternal log pose to Raftel..which is stupid because then why don’t World Government take that and go get it,some say it’s location of One Piece,again it’s weird,some say it’s key of Uranus(to use Uranus you have to have a key) or even Uranus,which might be,but still we don’t know anything about Uranus – some say that Uranus has teleportation power,it could be,but Uranus has to have some powers that can destroy the world,so maybe with that key it could teleport you anywhere and destroy a lot

Anyway let’s start with Celestial Dragons..why are the people afraid of them and why does the World Government even listen to them..they’re weak and useless..but what if it is not the case and they don’t listen to them because they are descendents of creators of WG..what if they posses some kind of weapon that could easily destroy the world

That national treasure could also be Egg Roger had,but i doubt that because that would mean he had to get it on Mariejois and Gorosei would probably attack him and he would die
[​IMG]

Which leaves me now for the last opinion..Tree of life
We already saw Tree of Adam and Tree of Knowledge – and it’s said that Trees in Eden are Gods treasure – his garden..also Tree of Adam is called Treasure Tree of Adam
Tree of life grows fruit every 10 years and when you eat it,it will grant you immortality
Doflamingo knew about this and used it somehow to escape from Mariejois – he said he would destroy the tree if they don’t let him go away – there was no fruit on it so he couldn’t eat it from it,my guess is that he returned to Mariejois to eat it and gain immortality,but he failed(he also asked from Law for immortality) – also he said when people find out about this it will shake up the world – when people find about it everyone would try to gain the immortality,which would cause chaos
Foreshadow
[​IMG] – fruit to live 1000 years
It’s said that National treasure when used with Ope Ope no Mi could grant the ability to destroy the world – Ope Ope no Mi is one of the devil fruits which reduces persons life – with that tree,user could use Ope infinite time without dying which would be crazy strong – i think Ope Ope no Mi is first devil fruit to be ever created and originally was supposed to be used with Tree of Life
Also Tree of Life is a forbidden tree – no one is allowed to eat from it
Gorosei are immortal because they ate from the tree because to World Government they represent Gods
The devil would be the “D” and they tried to tricked someone to bring them that fruit..
that person was Joy Boy
But instead he ate from the tree and returned to “D”‘s and said he ate it,so D’s made him their king..king of ancient kingdom – in this case D represent the Devils and Joy Boy represents the Eve and my guess would be Joy Boy had a brother who represents the Adam – Joy Boy is younger one
Now God was angered and he wanted to banish them from that world – Gods(WG) tried to kill Joy Boy(note-war didn’t start because of the tree,war was lasting even before that),but it was impossible and war was lasting too long and Ancient Kingdom decided to make weapons – Joy Boy was smart,they used it and had more chances of winning the war,but something happened…Joy Boy’s brother died..or he thought so..which made Joy Boy have feelings like he doesn’t care anymore and it made him lose the war and the result would be everyone he knows death..Joy Boy later apologized to Poseidon for failing and that it was his mistake that his emotions overtook him..and Joy Boy was captured and is still held there somewhere by Gorosei,but before he was captured he made another weapon that would revive everyone who died because of him..but he couldn’t use it,he didn’t have the last piece of it,the One Piece
As i said his brother was dead,but he wasn’t actually,he was captured and he escaped..later he also ate fruit from the tree and hid himself on the island called Raftel and he is now there protecting the weapon created by his brother and Joy Boy’s brother is the Rio Poneglyph and he created every other poneglyph – except Joy Boy’s one – Roger could’ve used the weapon to revive everyone,but it would only cause WG to find out about location of Raftel and it would cause another war which would result in death of everyone,again – first he needed to find every ancient weapon,but he didn’t have every one of them and to find every other ancient weapon it would take him some time,which he didn’t have

I believe Luffy will find one of the ancient weapons,but as he is reckless he will revive everyone from the ancient kingdom,which would cause huge war..later Poseidon will come which would be second weapon and if Elbaf theory is true – that they have Uranus ..they will come too with that weapon
Ending of One Piece will be Joy Boy apologizing to his people and thanking Luffy
and there will be a black screen that will say 500 years later – Usopp telling the stories to kids :)

Sorry for the long post..i hope you liked this,if it makes any sense..and also tell me what you think that Mariejois’s National Treasure is

Straw Hats & Gulliver’s Travels Theory

In the novel of Jonathan Swift, Lemuel Gulliver travelled by boat to fantastic islands.

There are a lot of similarities between the 4 Gulliver’s travels and the Strawhat’s travels :

Travel 1 of Gulliver : Island of Liliput <=> Green Bit

• This is an extract when Gulliver came to Liliput for first time : “I found my arms and legs were strongly fastened on each side to the ground ; and my hair, which was long and thick, tied down to the same manner. ” after that he perceived 6-inch (=15.24 cm) humans wearing weapons over his body. They are the inhabitants of Liliput.

Do you remember when Robin came to Greenbit for first time ? I put a video of her arrival just below.

• But then Gulliver become the favourite of the Court of Liliput. It was the same thing for Usopp in Green Bit

• Liliput had conflicts with the neighbour island and Gulliver helped them to win the war. Usopp helped Green Bit during their war against the neighbour island Dress Rosa.

From now it becomes difficult to relate the similarities between Usopp’s travels and Gulliver’s travels because we just can have speculations about Usopp’s travels. I focus on Usopp because he has particular links with the Tontattas and with the Giants. Moreover, him and Mr.Gulliver are considered to be liars in their own stories.


Travel 2 of Gulliver : Island of Brobdingnag <=> Elbaf

• Brobdingnag in Gulliver’s travels and Elbaf are both islands populated by Giants. Luffy had planned to go to Elbaf.

• I think an other similarity could be the fact than the Giant King in Gulliver disagred with the British Government. In One Piece, we saw the World Government had lie to some Giants of Elbaf.


 

Travel 3 of Gulliver : Islands of Balnibarbi and Laputa <=> Vegapunk, Uranus and Mariejoie ?

• In Gulliver’s travels, Laputa is a flying island thanks to a magnetism system. Laputa have actually a huge weapon system able to besiege a city. Laputa also cans move itself by flying.

For this reason, it makes me think about the Ancient Weapon Uranus in One Piece. There are some theories about the thing Capone met when he came to the New World is actually Uranus.


For my part, I think it could be and I think this thing is like a giant magnet because it seems to have attracted several island and then it attract the ship of Capone. In One Piece, the islands have a magnetism field used for Log and Eternal Pose. And there are a lot of huge cannons imbedded in the Capone’s Ship. Cannons use to be in metal and metal uses to be attract by magnets. I think Capone’s crew had just jump overboard to escape the magnet.

• But Laputa also have similarities with Marijoie because their inhabitants are the highest ranking nobles. They don’t care if other low-ranking people are starving, they are always studying and they are isolated from the rest of the World.

• Balnibarbi is island below Laputa. This is an island of scientists who leads crazy and useless experiments. Moreover, the funds used for the science make the people very poor.

I don’t know if there are so much links with One Piece, except the fact the Strawhats will probably meet Vegapunk.


 

Travel 3 bis of Gulliver : Islands of Glubbdubdrib and Luggnagg <=> Rought Tell and Gorosei ?

During the same travel of Balnibarbi and Laputa, Gulliver had gone to Glubbdubdrib and then to Luggnagg.

• Glubbdubdrib is an island where Gulliver met necromancians who allow him to talk with historic persons. By this way, Gulliver realized than the History is based on a lot of mistakes and lies.

In One Piece, the History is based on lies. People don’t know what happened during the Void Century. The “True Text History” of the Rio Poneglyph is supposed to be at Rough Tell.

• Luggnagg is an island of immortal people. But even they are immortal, they don’t have the eternal youngness. Indeed, they became very old, sick, weak and evil.

In One Piece, there are some theories talking about the immortality of the Gorosei. I don’t think they are sick and weak but they are obviously old and evil.


 

Travel 4 of Gulliver : Island of Houyhahoms <=> The D. Country ?

• The inhabitants are talking horses called Houyhnhnms. They are very smart and beautiful and represent the perfection. They are masters of miserables creatures with a lot of vices called Yahoos : Humans.

I think the Houyhnhnms could represent the D. and the Yahoos could represent the World Governement. Indeed, the humans are at the top of the WG.


 

Conclusion

There are a lot of similarities between Gulliver’s travels and the Strawhats’ travels, especially about Usopp. Indeed, we can be sure than the travels to Green Bit and Elbaf are directly based on Gulliver’s travels.

For the other trips, we can just do some speculations or theories. It’s obvious the story of Usopp and of the Strawhats will be different than Gulliver’s story but I showed you some similarities between their stories.

*Theory by Heroe

THE MYSTERY OF THE LUCCI LOOKALIKE

So, there is a Famous Rumor Going around that one of the Brokers is Lucci. I used to believe this but found inconsistencies and that was that.
This is one of the images that people have used to try to proof that:
[​IMG]
And truly, they do look alike, but then, this came up in the manga:
[​IMG]
And the Anime came in and kinda obliterated the idea.
[​IMG]
This man is elderly and has got a mustache.
[​IMG]
This is another scene of the man. But truly, is there only one man? or is Oda trying to mess with our minds?

I’m gonna go through these images and share something I found.

First. Let’s make it clear that the Anime studio doesn’t go around making up their own thing without consulting Oda first when it comes to creating and filling in scenes like this.
If they would, then the anime would end up very inconsistent to the source material and end up like the 4kids version(~Shivers~).
[​IMG]
Starting with the Face and Facial Structure.
Lucci and the Old man have got very unfamiliar facial structures now when you compare them together.
The chin on Lucci is nothing like the old mans chins.
The Nose on Lucci is smaller and he doesn’t have those “lines” on his cheeks, like the old guy has got(I don’t remember what they were called).
Lucci got a Beard while the elderly chap got a mustache. One can see the mustache in the manga, they are hard to notice at first glance as they don’t really have outlines like the anime.
The things they got in common is the similar hairstyle and dress attire.

Also, the butler seems to have changed appearances a tiny bit from the look of things, although I think this may be Oda or the Studio redesigning a bit. I Can’t be certain. (The changes don’t really affect this theory in any way, but I wanted to point it out since I just noticed the changes.)

Then we go to the thing that was supposed to seal the deal. The Drinks.
[​IMG]
People have said that they have the same brand of Alcohol, but clearly, those look nothing alike.
The bottle on the left looks like a Wine bottle while the one on the right looks like more of a whiskey bottle.
One is Round. One is Rectangular.
As for the Glass. I’m Pretty Darn sure that Lucci isn’t the only man on his planet that uses those type of glasses and puts ice in his drinks. In fact the glasses don’t look exactly alike, both are see-through, sure.
But the one on the right is straighter then the left one. :V

Now we go to the Walls. Yes! The Walls.
[​IMG]
Look closely at the walls. The one on the top, the manga one is just rough, but added detail in the anime shows it as a Brick wall.
In the other scenes, we do have enough detail to distinguish it. It looks like Wood, or to be decorated with wood. These decorations cannot be seen on the Brick wall near the screen like it is supposed to be.
Meaning we got a different room. They probably didn’t change Rooms, this was a very important moment, so they were more then likely Glued to the screen until Ceasar got beaten.
The Bottom pictures are the same Rooms from the look of it and when you look closely, you can see a end of a table or something next to bottom left of the screen((picture on the bottom right) The table edge seems to share a similar pattern as the decorations on the walls). The pattern on the wall that goes down is the same in both bottom pictures. These things are absent in the top pictures.

And then there is the Last and probably the most important bit. Look at the bottom and top pictures.
Those Screens are not the same screens. One of them looks like a flat screen(TV) while the other looks like a Projector Screen. The screen on the bottom left picture got a white line on the bottom similar to the one on the right. While the Top pictures doesn’t have any.
The Screens in the bottom pictures also seem to be lower on the wall compared to the other one.

So now we are at the conclusion.
To start with: I’m pretty sure the bottom pictures weren’t used in the anime. This is most likely due to them probably giving too much detail away compared to the manga. Cause the Anime is in color and therefore makes it easier for us to see detail better. The detail in shading is also much greater.
I remember going through the episodes they were supposed to appear in and not finding them. I could be wrong. If so I’d be glad if someone could post them.

Oda can easily deceive fans. IT is one of his best traits that helps him to mind-blow us later on in the series.
He thought he could fool us. Sure it took time but we saw through his trickery. But that begs the question.

Why do we have two characters that look so Very alike? Are we gonna have a family Reunion happen next time we meet Lucci?
Or, maybe? Is that perhaps a former WG agent that Lucci used to look up to and now dresses in the same way as him?

I find it a bit weird that we got two persons who look so very similar, watching the same Event Live at the exact same time.

So apparently, we got 3 guys now, if we go after the anime. Let’s look at the manga panels and their counterparts.

Here we see the first Scene:
Manga:
[​IMG]
Anime:
[​IMG]
This guy would be the one that looks like Lucci and the point I made in my theory still stand. This guy and the Old man are not the same guy.

As for the other scene:
Manga:
[​IMG]
Anime:
[​IMG]
Well, would you look at that. 3 characters with similar apparel and two of them have even got similar interior.

I intended to talk about the hats when I first made this theory and now is the right time. All of their hats are quite different when you compare them.

But now we got them all together. All are quite different. Now I am pretty damn sure that Lucci is one of the spectators.

*Theory by Whitey Bay

Why Luffy doesn’t kill anyone

As we know, Luffy hasn’t killed anyone, yet.

Oda explained why all Luffy’s former enemies are still alive :

D: Why doesn’t Luffy ever kill his enemies? If you look back, he didn’t kill Mohji, he didn’t kill Helmeppo or Captain Morgan, or anyone. Well, Zoro was the one who beat Morgan, but still. Why?

O: Ahh, good question. First of all, Morgan is still alive. He’s being held in prison now by his former subordinates. So why didn’t Luffy kill him? In this era, people put their lives on their beliefs and convictions, and fight. When he goes into battle, Luffy is destroying others’ beliefs. And when these enemies’ beliefs are shattered and defeated, they feel a pain equal to death. I think that for these pirates, killing or not killing is secondary to winning or losing.
