In this theory i’ll be discussing the return of the former agents of Cipher Pol 9.
Last time we saw CP9 was during their cover story adventure.
They became outlaws to the WG due to Spandam’s lies
CP9 developed a true sense of companionship when on the run. The other members went of their way to save Lucci when they really didn’t have to.
They fought their pursuers Very Good and other marines and left on a battleship.
AFTER Rob Lucci told Spandam “Someday we shall return.”
Now the question is, where are they now? The former CP9 agents, well at least Lucci, Kaku and Jyabura, are apart of Kaidou’s crew.
When fans first started to say this, it really annoyed me. Almost as much as the theories of Dragon being or having the Uranus. Lucci n’ company being under Kaidou was in a way too obvious and “uninspired,” with them being zoan and all, but it started to become plausible the more I thought about it.
Remember Kuzan line on Punk Hazard? And I quote “I can pursue justice without the veil of the marines. They say the grass is greener on the other side. In my case its actually true.” Its the same for CP9 and guess what? They are in an alliance with this guy:
“Red Flag” X. Drake
Like CP9, Drake is no longer with the WG. Like the top 3 CP9, Drake is a zoan. Like CP9, Drake is pursuing his own justice on the greener side. Like CP9, Drake left the WG with a battleship.
Why would Drake and Lucci work together?
Because they are both pursuing justice for the better of the world and their positions are quite similar. Both of them are criminals to the WG. CP9’s esteem for the WG was already butchered since the WG could be fooled by an idiot like Spandam and don’t forget….
Lucci still fights pirates even after he was betrayed by the WG. The destruction of pirates/criminals is Rob Lucci’s justice. Drake is after Kaidou because he is shipping weapons to the WG in exchange for SMILE. If Drake told CP9 that they will definitely help him.
Drake and CP9’s plan is already in motion; infiltrate Kaidou’s ranks and kill him. Don’t forget that CP9’s specialty is infiltration and assassination.
Drake has already made it into Kaidou’s ranks but he was assigned to guard duty away from Kaidou’s base. Its quite difficult to get reliable info on the main your trying to kill when your not even around him nor his top officers that much. That’s where Rob Lucci comes in and he’s made better progress than Drake.
Rob Lucci is Kaidou’s underworld broker representative.
Take a look a this panel with the brokers.
Big Mam’s represnetatives are obviously Pekoms and Tamago. The guy at the bottom right is Blackbeard’s representatives Avolo Pizzaro. Shanks doesn’t seem like the kind of person to be interested in the underworld so that’s eaves Kaidou. Kaidou is a key figure in the underworld so surely he has a representative too. It is Rob Lucci. Whatever this “league” is I do not know, but he wants the info of Caesar being captured by Law-Luffy alliance to be known because its too big to be covered up in the underground and he’s still trying to lower damage caused by pirates. That’s how the Luffy-Law alliance became public news in less than a day.
Make no mistake, Lucci is still a blood-thirsty wildcat:
Because of Lucci’s intimidating reputation and aura, his brutal and blood thirsty nature and his unparalled ability to follow orders without fail, it’ll be no surprise to me if Lucci is one of Kaidou’s favorites since Kaidou himself is all about intimidation and power. Lucci is currently buying his time and waiting for the PERFECT chance to strike because one slip up means certain death.
After Kaidou’s defeat, CP9 along with Drake will join the Revolutionary Army. Drake is a given but CP9? Once they learn that Kaidou’s army only came to be because of the WG supplying him with SMILE, they won’t be pleased. The WG wants criminals so that they can pretend to be justice. As long as there are outlaws, the WG has a steady source of income.
CP9 will come to the conclusion that as long as the current WG exist, there will be no shortage of criminals. They will join the Revolutionaries with the goal of bringing down the WG to spread real justice.
As revolutionaries, they will teach Sanji and Smoker the Rokushiki technigues. As revolutionaries, they will reconcile with Nico Robin and act as her bodyguards when she discovers some parts of the history. As revolutionaries, they will help Franky and Galley-La company create the Pluton for the final war.
