THE 10TH TITAN COMMANDER! BLACKBEARDS RIGHT HAND MAN!! AND SHANKS SECRET CREW MEMBER!!!

Now going into this theory, you guys are going to seriously have to keep an open mind. This is one theory I know that a lot of people are going to disagree on, and honestly, I even questioned myself at first when I came up with it, but I have rid myself of all doubts.

The first thing I want to address, is Shiliew of the Rain, and how I made a theory over a year or so ago addressing that the Blackbeard Pirates, would steal Jozu’s Devil Fruit and give it to Shiliew. Well I no longer believe that to be the case, as I no longer believe Shiliew is going to be the person that Zoro faces off against at the end of the series. There is one major reason that I never even thought about when I made the original theory, and that is the fact that, not only did Shiliew become a member of the Blackbeards Pirates out of pure chance, but also, Blackbeard specifically stated that they don’t fully trust Shiliew.

Now why would this have any bearing on whether or not Zoro will face off against Shiliew? Well it’s simple actually, and that is the fact that Zoro has always fought the second most powerful member of every crew that the Straw Hats have faced off with, and the majority of the time, that person is always the Number 2 guy. With Shiliew, becoming number two, just isn’t possible, especially since he’s not one of the original members, and he isn’t trusted.

So that begs the question, just who exactly is Blackbeards number two man? Some people speculate Jesus Burgess, due to the fact that he is the First Division Commander, but me personally, I believe it is actually someone who hadn’t yet joined up with the Blackbeard Pirates, even though he has been with Blackbeard since the very beginning….In fact, this man, joined the Whitebeard pirates alongside Blackbeard, with the very same goal in mind, as there was a Devil Fruit he always wanted, but was unable to obtain it, due to the fact that a member of the Whitebeard Pirates, already possessed the fruit, that he desired! So who could this man possibly be, and what fruit was it that he desired?

Hold the fucking phone Dragon! How and the hell could you possible think that Vista has been working with Blackbeard this entire time? Well, I will get to that in just a bit, but first, I want to explain to you, how I even thought of Vista as a villain in the first place. Now you might think it’s pretty comical, and you’ll probably think I’m crazy, but it makes sense….Vista’s entire character design, is actually modeled off of a villain. Don’t believe me? Check it out!

You done laughing yet? I know, it took me awhile to stop laughing also. But here is where it makes sense. Snidely Whiplash, was actually created to parody the villains of the silent film era. They all shared two things in common, they had a handle bar mustache, and they wore a top hat…..

Looks an awful lot like Vista’s character design doesn’t it? Whichs makes you wonder, why would Oda create a “good guy” but yet modeled him after a “bad guy” unless the “good guy” himself, was actually evil….So I had to figure out a reason as to why Vista himself would have stayed with Whitebeard, after Blackbeard obtained the Yami Yami no Mi, and left the crew, and that is when I realized, what if Vista himself also had his sites set on a Devil fruit, but the one he wanted wasn’t as easily obtainable. Especially since that fruit was already eaten by someone else. The Diamond fruit that Jozu possesses. The only way for Vista to obtain this devil fruit is for Jozu to die, but Jozu isn’t easily killable. Vista couldn’t leave the Whitebeard Pirates when Blackbeard did, because there was a possibility that Jozu could die, and if he wasn’t around when that happened, then he wouldn’t be able to acquire the fruit, he had waited so long to obtain.

So why would Vista want the Diamond Fruit? Because diamond is the one substance in the One Piece World (Besides sea stone) that is damn near impossible to cut. It’s the absolute perfect Devil Fruit for a Swordsman. Vista himself stated that it is every Swordsmans dream to cross swords with Mihawk, which implies that Vista himself dreams of defeating Mihawk and becoming the World Strongest Swordsman.

Which brings me to the second half of the theory…..Shanks secret crew member…. Well technically, there is two, but I have yet to come up with who the second person could be. You are probably wondering though, why I think there is two members of the Red Haired Pirates that have yet to be revealed. The reason is because of what we saw during the Marineford War. It was basically foreshadowed that at some point the Blackbeard Pirates and the Red Haired Pirates will clash. But when the Red Haired Pirates showed up at Marineford, there was only 9 main crew members shown, and one member who you could only see apart of his cape, and little bit of his neck. (That is the member I am not sure about)

ok

So with that in mind, we have 10 main members of the Red Haired Pirates, and the Blackbeard Pirates has 11 main members, so the Red Haired Pirates are still down one main member for when the inevitable clash between the two crews happen. So who could this secret member be? Well he was at Marineford also, but he arrived there well before Shanks did. Some of you have already figured it out….The man I am talking about, is none other, than Mihawk. Yes, Dracule Mihawk, is a member of the Red Haired Pirates, but left the crew shortly before Shanks became a Yonko, in order to become a member of the Schichibukai, and act as Shanks inside man for the World Government….

Why do I believe Mihawk is a member of the the Red Haired Pirates? Because he is the only Pirate in the entire series who has no crew, no flag, no ship, and yet is somehow considered a Pirate by the World Government. In order for that to be the case, I believe that at some point Mihawk had to have been apart of a pirate crew, and to me, the only logical crew that could have been, is the Red Haired Pirates. The way Mihawk acts when it comes to Shanks goes beyond that of a rival. He knew exactly where to find Shanks when he wanted to inform him about Luffy’s bounty. The way Shanks grabbed Mihawk, and told him he had to stay with them and party, reminds me of something a Captain would do to a crew mate. Mihawk actually apologized to Shanks in his head before he attempted to kill Luffy. And then Mihawk refused to fight any longer when the Red Haired Pirates showed up at Marineford.

So now, the only thing left to say, is what I believed happened during the two year time skip, and what will eventually happen when the Blackbeard Pirates face off against the Red Haired Pirates. I think after the war ended, and Whitebeard and Ace were buried, at some point Vista managed to separate Jozu from the rest of the crew. After he was separated, Jozu was attacked by the Blackbeard Pirates, and was either killed, or Blackbeard managed to remove his Devil Fruit from him, finally allowing Vista to obtain the power he has waited so long to get his hands on. Vista has finally been reunited with his true captain, and has taken up his position as Blackbeards right hand man.

During the Marineford War, when Vista and Mihawk faced off against eachother, neither of them were going all out, and neither of them broke a sweat. The two of them both came to the agreement, that they would postpone their battle, and considering they have their pride as Swordsmen the line, there is no reason to believe that this fight isn’t going to happen. I believe this fight will happen when the Blackbeard Pirates finally face off against the Red Haired Pirates.

Personally I believe Mihawk and Vista were fighting evenly during the Marineford War, and now that Vista has acquired Jozu’s Diamond Fruit, it is going to give him the slight advantage he needs in order to defeat Mihawk, and claim the title as the “World’s Strongest Swordsman” This will set up the inevitable clash between Vista and Zoro, where Zoro will not only be able to avenge his Masters defeat/death (I haven’t decided on Mihawks fate) but he will finally cut Diamond like Mr. 1 foreshadowed, and obtain the title of Worlds Strongest Swordsman.

A couple cliff notes to add….

In one of the Whitebeard Pirates flashbacks the 3 main members shown of Whitebeards crew were Marco, Jozu, and Blackbeard.

During the Marineford War, Marco, Jozu, and Vista (Blackbeards right hand man) were the center focus of the Whitebeard Pirates, besides Whitebeard himself.

Vista and Yasopp were shown to have some sort of grudge against each other, which could be a foreshadow of Vista fighting against the Red Haired Pirates….

Vista was the least injured member of the Whitebeard Pirates after the War was over, which is a testament to not only his strength, but could also imply (For the sake of this theory) that he wasn’t trying as hard as the rest of the Whitebeard crew.

I had more I was going to add, but the theory is already long enough, so I will just answer all questions and concerns as they come along. I hope you guys enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it….

Edit: Something else to think about.

Also think about this….Pre-time skip, the Gorosei were shown discussing the results of the War (Chapter 594) and in that discussion, they stated that Marco, and the remnants of the Whitebeard Pirates were possible candidates of stopping Blackbeard…At that point in time, they still controlled all of Whitebeards territory, but during the two year timeskip Blackbeard took it over….What could have happened during that time period to have given the Blackbeard Pirates the advantage over the Whitebeard Pirates? I think losing two of their most powerful members (Vista and Jozu) would have tipped the scale in the favor of the Blackbeard Pirates, allowing them to conquer Whitebeards territory….

Shanks vs Blackbeard pirates theory

Many fans believe that Shanks has a very deep personal history with Blackbeard (Shanks’ Scar), and that the old Yonko will soon challenge the new Yonko: Shanks vs. Blackbeard

1

With Shanks and Blackbeard fighting, their crews will also fight.

23

Interesting is, that from what we’ve seen so far, BOTH Pirate Crews have exactly 10 members. Coincidence? I doubt it. (Same counts for the Straw Hats).

Now you could make a case for the Blackbeard Pirates having 11 members, because of:

  1. Stronger the horse – He might be a Zoan user
  2. Blackbeard’s Crew has 10 Captains, Jesus Burgess being the 1st Captain. Blackbeard himself + 10 Captains would be 11 members.

If one of these is true, and I think it is, then the BB Pirates would have 1 more member than the Red Hair Pirates. Here is where Dracule Mihawk comes into play. He and Shanks can be considered good friends, and he would never stand still while Shanks is in great danger.

What I am getting at are 3 key matchups:

  • Shanks vs. Teach
  • Mihawk vs. Shiliew
  • Yasopp vs. Van Augur

And if you remember the title of this thread, you know what comes next:

  • Teach kills Shanks
  • Shiliew kills Mihawk
  • Van Augur kills Yasopp

This would lead to a whole new level of emotion & drama in the One Piece story! Luffy wouldnt be able to return the Hat, Zoro wouldnt be able to defeat the one he tried to surpass his entire life, and Usopp wouldnt be bale to reunite with his dad as a brave warrior of the sea.

This would also increase the friction/hatred between Luffy and Blackbeard to infinity. Especially Usopp, Zoro and Luffy would then have a personal vendetta against the BB Pirates, and their wish for vengeance might be a huge task for the other Straw Hats to handle, and to keep the harmony in the Straw Hat Crew. Then we would have fights like:

  • Luffy vs. Teach -> To avenge Shanks
  • Zoro vs. Shiliew -> To avenge Mihawk
  • Usopp vs. Van Augur -> To avenge Yasopp

On a sidenote: I see Makino’s child being the son/daughter of Shanks, and in the end, Luffy will give the Straw Hat to Shanks’ child.

FUTURE ADMIRALS theory

The future admirals will be Coby, Sentomaru and Smoker. These three all have one thing in common. They have some similarities to the 3 strongest marines in Roger’s era i.e. Garp, Sengoku and Zerphy.

1.Garp e Coby:

12

-Base of operation: Both are located at the hq.
-Fighting style: Hand to hand combat. Some elements of their fighting styles are similar since Coby is Garp’s apprentice
-Partners: Garp had Bogard while Coby has Helmeppo. Both partners carry a bladed weapon.

34

-Both have a deep trust with their pirate rival: Garp with Roger, Coby with Luffy
-Sense of justice: Their sense of justice is the same. They will sit and drink with pirates they consider as friends but when the tym comes they will hunt them down without holding back.

Coby will surpass Garp and inherit his will. He will also inherit part of Garps nickname just like Sanji inherited the “leg” from Zeref.

2. Sengoku and Sentomaru:

56

-Appearance: When Sengoku is using his df he turns into a Buddha giant. He looks similar to a sumo wrestler which is similar to Sentomaru.
-Fighting style:

-Both use their palms to fight. Both their palms release energy blasts. Sengokus is a shockwave while Sentomaru is a CoA haki blast.
-Sense of justice:Both follow a similar sense of justice. They have respect for pirates who they feel deserve respect. They both are disgusted with pirates who are not worthy of their respect. They will fight them without holding back. They don’t hate pirates but they feel that it is their duty as marines to stop them.

Sentomaru will surpass Sengoku and will inherit his will.

3. Zerphy and Smoker:

78

-Base of operation: Both are stationed at G-5 in New world.
-Weapons: Both use kairoseki weapons. Smoker with his Jutte and Zerphy with his arm.

1011

-Nicknames: Both their nicknames have a colour theme. Zerphy is black while Smoker is white
-DF: Zerphy has no df while Smoker has a df.
-Sense of justice: They both believe in the same justice. Pirates are evil while marines are good. They live in a black and white world. Both are strong believers of justice
-Both their beliefs in the marines and WG change over time. Zerphy left the marines as a result.
-Their character themes are opposite in some aspects. One has a df with a white color theme while the other has no df with a black color theme

Smoker will surpass Zerphy and inherit his will. Since they are opposite to each other, Smoker will be able to do what Zerphy could not. that is to change the marines and to change his mentality from a black and white one to a gray one.

That is why I believe these 3 people will be the admirals in the future.
Thanks for reading. All feedback is welcome. Be it good or bad.

Zoro Theory

(you can send your theory about  everything related to OnePiece via email at onepiecegoldstaff@gmail.com)

roronoa-zoro-scar-katana-one-piece-anime-wallpaper404.com-hd

I would talk about the mystery and real nature of Strawhat Pirate crew’s Pirate Hunter: Roronoa Zoro.

Roronoa Zoro and his origins currently in the series, along with 3 other original Strawhat crewmembers, Nami, Sanji and Ussop remains as a mystery.

Aside from their initial backstories, the 4 original recruits of Luffy, especially Ussop and Zoro, recieved almost too little backstories regarding their origins.

I always thought these 4 are special characters, including Luffy, not only with their roles in the story, but also with their origins which is highly connected to the whole Void Century thing.

I could categorize the Strawhats into this group, if I may label it like that:

1. The East Blue Recruits: Zoro, Nami, Ussop and Sanji.

They are apparently, the more human recruits of Luffy (or so it seems), and we could basically say the foundation of the Strawhat crew. They fulfill the roles to set the story up and provide the needed basic roles in the ship (navigation, cooking, weapon specialist, inventions, ship fixing, flag making, first-aid)

2. The Paradise Recruits: Chopper, Nico Robin, Franky and Brook.

I would consider these 4 as the guys who made the Strawhat Crew diversed. They are the ones who provided the roles to expand the story (Archeologist) and fill the minor roles in the crew or take over the roles of the original Strawhats (Shipwright, Musician, Doctor), also, I believe that these 4 would NOT get any more backstories, what you see from their origins is what you get; and that includes Franky and Brook, I believe. While Franky was said to have pirate parents, I think it would not be tackled upon since Tom provided the parent figure of Franky.

And though it can be said the same for Nami, the Paradise recruits already provided important aspects of the story that is connected to either Luffy’s fate or the Void Century that completes their characters aside from their dreams, unlike the 4 original members; Robin became the catalyst for the angle of Void Century, Franky opened up the angle of Pluton, an ancient weapon, Chopper’s dream is already tied in to Luffy’s impending critical condition at the end of series and Brook’s relationship with Crocus, a former crewmember of Gol D. Roger.

3. The New World Recruits: Jinbe, Tashigi, An Elbaf Warrior and Smoker.

These 4, are the guys I would say that would tie the loose ends in the story (Oda does everything for a reason) If the original recruits are the ones who provided the main gist of the story and the Paradise recruits expanded the story, the New World recruits are all connected in the sense that they will complete the puzzle of the story: Yonkous, Revolutionaries and Ancient Weapon.

And while the original recruits provided the basic roles of the ship, and the next 4 recruits filled the holes, I believe the 4 next strawhat would NOT have any specific positions or roles in the ship, but instead, they would bridge the gap between differences in the series like; human and fishmen, pirates and marines and past and present.

The 3rd set of recruits, instead of roles, will present a different kind of diversity, 2 monsters (a fish and a giant) and 2 humans who are very different from the rest (1 marine who despises pirates and 1 female who wants to compete equally with males…not to mention, a logia as well.)

I believe the 3rd set of recruits will be a statement on how Luffy and the original Strawhats would be able to surpass Gol D. Roger and his legacy, or at least, their selves.

1. Jinbe – Nami coming into terms and being in the same ship with the same race she grew up hating. We could aslo assume Sanji is connected to Jinbe in a way.

2. Tashigi – Zoro having someone to pass Wado Ichimonji after the voyage, especially since she resembles his old friend so much. Sanji might also have someone who would not shun him. (I kid, I kid)

3. Elbaf Warrior – Ussop achieving his dream to go and even having an Elbaf Warrior as a crewmate.

4. Smoker – Luffy recruiting his so-called “rival” who unlike Roger, never crossed that boundary with Garp.

Now that is out of the way, let us discuss the first of the original recruits of the Strawhat Pirate Crew, Roronoa Zoro and his true origins.

Roronoa Zoro’s backstory revolved around his connection with Kuina, and how he developed his dream, but it was never mentioned on where he came from, he just appeared in front of Koshiro wanting to challenge every students in Koshiro’s dojo and we all know how it turned out between him and Kuina.

There was very little evidence on Roronoa Zoro’s origin and true nature, so what we are gonna do is to use some speculation and possible hints to give a good hypothesis on this theory.

Even before Zoro was formally introduced, Coby described Zoro as a “blood thirsty monster or devil” as Luffy expressed his desire to recruit him.

During his fight against Kaku, Zoro, for the first time, exhibited a kind of power that is impossible to explain by natural means: Asura.

Even Kaku mentioned that he felt an “evil” aura in that moment.

Most of Zoro’s moves are a reference to either unlucky animals.

Non-christian references. Specifically Buddhist and Hindu references, in which pertains heavily to the idea of reincarnation

or the devil itself.

During the Skypiea Arc, Zoro expressed his disbelief in God and I believe this heavily hinted that Zoro is the anti-God.

Now, I think you’ll get the idea that “hey, Zoro is an anti-God, then that means he is a D!”

Not necessarily.

Because eventhough D people are said to be as the natural enemies of the Gods, which is clearly a figurative comparison to Tenryuubitos, Zoro, is referencing and the hints that was given, is referencing to God itself.

You get my drift?

Roronoa Zoro is not a human.

Roronoa Zoro is the incarnation of the Devil itself. specifically, a soul of a devil that never found a fruit, but instead, one that escaped from Uranus like the Yami-Yami No Mi.

The Shinu-Shinu No Mi, or the Death Fruit.

Unlike the Yami-Yami No Mi, that came from Blackbeard’s direct ancestor and resided in the fruit and chose Blackbeard to be his owner, the Shinu-Shinu No Mi wandered for ages until it decided to use Zoro as a container.

If i’m gonna make a bet, while Zoro is at her mother’s womb.

It’s the reason why Zoro got a very bad sense of direction.

And like Luffy, Sanji and Ussop, who got rare types of lineages in them, Zoro’s endurance and strength is abnormal.

It’s also the reason why Zoro, Luffy and Ace knew that Blackbeard got other “entities” inside him.

Its one thing to have an Observation Haki, but I think otherwise.

Luffy and Ace are D’s that can subconsciously sense Blackbeard’s nature, because of him being a D as well.

And Zoro having inside a cursed soul inside him, subconsciously sensed Blackbeard’s secret, because Blackbeard also got a cursed soul.

I would like to add that I believe there are 3 cursed souls in the series.

1. Yomi-Yomi No Mi – one that gives back the soul of the owner and uses power from the Underworld.
2. Shinu-Shinu No Mi – one who controls the souls of the dead and uses the power of the Devils.
3. Yami-Yami No Mi – one who controls and claims dominance to other souls (that came from Uranus) and uses the power of the deepest pit, the Abyss or the Void.

Now, you may think i’m just bullshitting around, but I do believe that these abilities, (in Zoro’s case, his soul) are referencing the definitions of levels of hell from the Buddhism, Greek, Hinduism and even Christian beliefs.

They all differ, but I think they all agree on it having 3 main areas, in this case we would use the Greek Mythology.

The Shades – which I believe is the direct reference to Yomi-Yomi No Mi, which is where the River Styx is located, in this area, we can still bring the dead back, which is obviously Brook’s primary ability.

It’s also a reference to Yomi, or the Japanese version of the Underworld, in which Izanagi recovered Izanami from the dead.

The Elysian Fields – although this is described in the Greek Myths as a place of warriors, this still the place of the death, in which I think references the Shinu-Shinu No Mi, which is Zoro’s soul.

The Tartaros – A direct reference to Yami-Yami No Mi, the Abyss, in which is a place of complete darkness where no light can go through and is a place of suffering and punishment for grave sins.

Oh, did I mentioned that it’s being guarded by Cerberus, a three-headed dog which is a direct reference to Blackbeard’s jolly roger?

If there’s one thing that follows Zoro, it’s unlucky, cursed and evil things.

In Lougetown, Zoro was chosen by the cursed sword, Sandai Kitetsu.

Zoro was chosen by the cursed Samurai, Ryuuma.

And Zoro possess a very “animal” presence within him, as stated by many people.

And the reason why Zoro does not get weak on seawater, even though he had a “soul of the devil” inside him (that came from the moon), was because unlike the Yomi-Yomi, his devil soul did not get actually get caught in the Uranus and assumingly just roamed the world for centuries until it resided inside Zoro.

Inspiration Behind the Poneglyphs

monkey_d_luffy_wallpape-background-anime-onepiece

The name Poneglyph itself was more than likely chosen from hieroglyphs (Word of the Gods). However, given that Oda has been inspired by Vikings it seems that the Poneglyphs main inspiration has come from the Rök Runestone. There are many different types of Nordic runestone I could have used, but this one seems to have many elements which the Poneglyphs also have.
To begin, the Rök Runestone contains a fragment of what is believed to be a lost piece of Norse mythology. Similarly to how the Poneglyph’s (perhaps more so the Rio Poneglyph) has fragments of the lost history of the Void Century. The passage on the stone itself has three parts which each consist of 2 questions and one poetic-like answer, much like how Robin discovered there are Poneglyphs containing clues or truths.
The stone mentions twelve battles of war over two war booties/precious weapons which would likely be the Ancient Weapons in One Piece. Although the number of weapons are different, perhaps One Piece’s narrative required three. Possibly that the origins of each weapon came from a Sky Island, one from Earth and another from Fishman Island, or something along those lines.
The stone also refers to twenty kings (four brothers who each had five sons), these brothers all had the same name. This piece of mythology was supposedly common knowledge at the time, but has since been completely lost. Now we know the Twenty Kingdoms brought the downfall of the Ancient Kingdom and became the World Government. However, the all male bloodline and the same name could also mean the ‘D’s. Although, there are 5 members of the Gorosei who we don’t know almost anything about, so they could be the eldest living descendants of these brothers.
If this is indeed the Poneglyphs origin, I’d guess Oda has done what he did with Whitebeard/Blackbeard and used the same source to influence both. For those who don’t know, the real Blackbeard was named Edward Teach/Thatch. From that, in One Piece we got Edward Newgate (Whitebeard), Marshall D. Teach (Blackbeard) and Thatch, who Blackbeard killed to get his Yami Yami no Mi.
Finally, the last part becomes difficult to read given that the runes used switches to an older style. It’s been assumed that its intentional, and that the rows following this point concerns legends connected specifically to a single tribe(Vélinn’s). A brief summary would be that Vélinn who wrote the rune lost his son, possibly in the battle I referenced earlier, his wife made some sort of sacrifice, and it also talks about the strength to overcome a giant.
Given the cyclic nature of One Piece, this could possibly be used as a description of the first time the World Government and Ancient Kingdom fought. Skip forward 800 or so years and Gol D. Roger finds the Rio Poneglyph. His wife, sacrifices herself to keep Ace alive. Ace then eventually gets killed in the Battle of Marineford, which also happens to include the giant-like Little Oars Jr. However giant could easily mean adversity in general and I’m reading too much into this.
All this said, given the history of Ace, he could have respected Gol D. and gained his will and sought to become pirate king. Luffy could have also become a marine like his grandfather or even a revolutionary, but he fatefully met Shanks, gained the Strawhat and wanted only to become pirate king. Ace and Luffy meet and swear brotherhood to one another, meaning in some weird, indirect way Roger is almost like Luffy’s father too. The marines therefore probably killed the wrong ‘son’ and Luffy escaping has broken this cycle.

SOME OBSERVATIONS AND A THEORY ON THE NEXT ARC…

10329035_676508419069289_6469335549300669201_n

I think the next arc will resemble the Skypiea Arc. The reasoning for this is that all the Post-TimeSkip arcs so far have been similar to the beginning arcs of One Piece. Now they might be different in Content. But in their core narrative, conception, execution and underlying themes they are rather similar.

-Various Early Arcs/Return to Sabaody: The similarities are somewhat obvious, Introducing/ Reintroducing the main crew. As well as showing the Powers/New abilities they have/gained. Now that is there for a fairly obvious reason but there is another underlying current. The presentation of pirates contrary to One Piece, or at least Luffy’s, beliefs of what a pirate should be. Buggy, Don Krieg and probably(arguably) most notably Captain Kuro. Where as After The TimeSkip it would be the Fake Straw Hats. Although Luffy is obviously more affected by the earlier portrayals then the Fake Straw Hats. Now also there is the the portrayal of the Weakness of the marines, with the ease of defeating Captain Morgan as well as the Pacifistas.

-Arlong Park & Loguetown Arcs/ Fishman Island Arc: Now the most paramount similarity are the Fishman… Not sure I need to explain that any further. Now the most prevalent underlying theme is obviously the racism and it’s littered throughout. Also possibly misguided loyalty or trust, most noticeably With Nami’s trust in Arlong to Hold Up his end of the Deal. Then in Fishman Island there was the Trust in Madam Shyarly, not to mention within Hody’s Crew. Another parallel would be the theft of freedom with Nami subservient to Arlong in the first and Princess Shirahoshi locked away for years second, And maybe to a lesser extent Arlong could be related to Caribou for stealing people. Now maybe the most striking similarity is the death of a mother witnessed by her daughter. The massive battle of The Small number vs The Big number, Zoro and Sanji against the Buggy Pirates and the Marines. Then the battle between the Straw Hats and New Fishman Pirates. The end with the pirates escaping into a New Ocean, Grand Line then The New World.

-Not sure where to put this: Introduction of great new threat or obstacles. The Shichibukai with Hawk-Eyes Mihawk, then introduction of Yonko with the Big Mom Pirates. Needs a new way to navigate. Smoker and Tashigi and all the things that come with that…

-Reverse Mountain – Drum Island Arcs/ Punk Hazard Arc: The most resolute is Clearly that these are a lead up to a the real threat, namely Crocodile and Donquixote Doflamingo. The desire to help someone that might be disreputable begins this arc, Miss Wednesday (Vivi) and The Distress call from Punk Hazard. The whole begining is to show how powerful the crew is in relation to the threat they face Whisky Peak, The Centaurs, escaping from captivity. They must bring along a surroget crew member, Vivi, Kin’emon then Momonosuke. The straw Hats apparent betrayal, The Giant’s exploding alcohol, as well as the Keeping of the Candy from the children. The defeat of a a man that uses his power over people for evil, Wapol then Caesar… this is longer and harder then anticipated… Here are some other things I noticed a flying animal type thing tells the boss about the straw hats, Mr. 13 and Miss Friday later Monet. Meeting of Giant mythical Beasts, Giants, Dragons. They beat someone, supposedly, really strong. Zoro + Luffy vs Mr 5 + Miss Valentine, Zoro Vs Monet. Mr 3 tricks the giants, Ceaser tricks Brownbeard. Wrongly enraged Giants, Wrongly enraged Children. Mr 3 power and Caesar’s Gas.

-CrossOvers: The Cage the Straw Hats and Smoker are in by the hands of Crocodile and the cage The Straw Hats, Law, Smoker, and Tashigi are in from Caesar

-Alabasta Arc/Dressrosa Arc: As the Dressrosa Arc isn’t complete there may be more in the future. Never the less The biggest similarity has to be a person masquerading as good while they subvertly commit atrocities, I don’t think you need reminding but Crocodile and Donquixote Doflamingo. Then theres the corruption of a good person in power Nefertari Cobra and King Riku. Death of a father figure, that didn’t really die, Igaram, Pell and Kyros. The apparent death, or grave injury of a main character. Luffy at the hands of Crocodile… Law at the hands of Donquixote Doflamingo. A weird pervert that might become far more important later… Bon Clay and Sinor Pink. A seemingly insurmountable for for Zoro Mr. 1 (sword fruit) Pica (In stone). Slightly suicidal person Pell and Baby 5 (maybe not). A rebel force wanting to destroy the ruler the revolutionary army, the dwarfs.

Now I may have missed something… But for the most part I think the similarities are rather interesting…

But maybe The next arc will in some way be the second Skypiea Arc…

ELEMENTAL HAKI THEORY

Immagine

I have a feeling that Elemental Haki might be a thing in the One Piece World. I noticed that certain characters have moves or attacks that include elements but can’t really explain how they use them.

Sanji- his fire kicks dont burn him at all (has yet to go against a logia to show if his kicks would hit or not.)

Zoro- his attack with the swords to create a tornado using wind (he only went against Monet and we saw how that ended)

Luffy- he used a red hawk under water and that dind burn him at all, also what the hell was the snake shot?

Fishmen- could fishmen karate be water haki? (hence why Koala can use it)

Sabo- Sabo use that DragonBreath attack during the Colosseum battle and split the arena with what appear to be wind?

Eustass Kid crewmate- during saboady he used a technic to breath fire

Whitebeard allies-During marine ford there was a guy with electricity on his sword.

Vista- could Vista possibly have earth Haki which would or could be nature like and that would explain the flowers?

Kinemo- this guy cuts fire like its normal.

Brook- his ice abilities seem random to me maybe ice Haki?

Fossa (WB pirate)-was using fire on his sword

Hannyable was able to light the ends of his staff with fire

Those are just some of the samples I could find. If I miss any please comment below and let me know!

So in light of the recent chapter of One Piece, we have learned that those who are considered “D”s are the “Natural Enemies of Gods”. Now as we all know, within One Piece the Celestial Dragons consider themselves Gods, among the human race. When you take the context of what Corazon said about the “D”s being the natural enemies of the “Gods”, one would assume that this means, the “D”s take on the role of the Devils.

I know, I know, it sounds crazy right, especially considering that in most religions and Mythology, the Devil, is undoubtably an evil entity, and just doesn’t seem to fit the persona of all the “D”s we have seen so far within the series of One Piece…. Well I decided to do some digging, and I found something very very interesting. In some religions, the Devils were known as “Tricksters”, and these beings, although sometimes were considered evil, were far from the “Devils” I had grown up reading about. And the more I read up on them, the more and more I saw the similarities between “Tricksters” and “D”s.

*In mainstream Islam and Christianity, God and the Devil are usually portrayed as fighting over the souls of humans. The Devil commands a force of evil spirits, commonly known as demons.[2] The Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament) describes the Adversary (ha-satan) as an angel who instigates tests upon humankind.[3][4] Many other religions have a trickster or tempter figure that is similar to the Devil. Modern conceptions of the Devil include the concept that it symbolizes humans’ own lower nature or sinfulness..

**The trickster deity breaks the rules of the gods or nature, sometimes maliciously (for example, Loki) but usually with ultimately positive effects (though the trickster’s initial intentions may have been either positive or negative).

***Operating outside the framework of right and wrong, tricksters do not recognize the rules of society. Their characters and actions are far from simple, however. Often childish, greedy, lustful, and even nasty, tricksters can also be friendly, helpful, clever, and wise. Sometimes they appear to be clownish, clumsy, or foolish, although they usually possess amazing powers of survival. A trickster may come to a sorry end in one story but then, after being miraculously brought back to life, reappear in other tales.

****Sometimes a trickster is a creator or culture hero whose activities explain how some aspect of the world came into being. In northeastern America, for example, myths of the Algonquian-speaking people tell of a trickster named Gluskap. Gluskap lived in the cold north, but during a journey to the warm south, he tricked Summer, a beautiful female chieftain, into returning north with him. After she melted the cold of Winter, Gluskap let her return to her home. Maui, the trickster hero of the Polynesian Islands in the Pacific Ocean, created the world while he was fishing. He let out a long fishing line and reeled in island after island from the bottom of the ocean. Later, Maui stole fire from the underworld and gave it to humans.

This is just some of the Information that I have found on Trickster, and trust me, I could quote a whole lot more. But as you can see, the trickster, is neither good nor evil. They live their life the way they want to, and depending on the circumstances, tend to bring some type of positive effect around them, regardless of their intentions in the first place. If you look at if from the standpoint of of the “D”s we’ve seen so far in the series, from the M0nkeys to the Marshalls, it basically covers both sides of the spectrum pertaining to Tricksters.

So what do you guys think, are the “D”s ultimately the “Tricksers/Devils” of the One Piece World, or do you believe that the “D”s hide a deeper meaning? If so, what do you believe they are?

Luffy destroying Fishman Island-Under what Circumstances?

Everyone remembers the infamous scene during the Fishman Island Arc in which Madam Shirley predicted that Luffy would destroy Fishman Island, and we also know, she’s never been wrong.

Shyarly_Anime_Infobox

So under what circumstances do you think this will occur?

1)War with Big Mom:
Maybe at one point Big Mom will threaten and eventually invade Fishman Island provoking Luffy to return and fight her. The war will be so chaotic, that the island is destroyed and the citizens of Fishman Island will have to be evacuated (presumably by Noah).

2) One Piece “Project”:
A popular theory has been surfing around the internet about the true contents of One Piece. This theory states that One Piece is not a treasure but actually rather a project that seeks to create the almighty sea of freedom: All Blue. But for that to happen they need to destroy the entirety of the Red Line which includes: Reverse Mountain, Mariejois and Fishman Island. Citizens will be evacuated of course.

3) General Union with the Humans:
Once the time is right, Luffy will destroy Fishman Island, and bring all the Fishmen and Merfolk above shore, where they will finally have accomplished their dream.

What do you think? Let Us Know ^ ^

Ancient Weapons – Uranus and the Tree of Devil Fruits

(you can send your theory about  everything related to OnePiece via email at onepiecegoldstaff@gmail.com)

Let’s start a theory about the famous 3 Ancient Weapons (From here on “AW”), trying to figure out what Uranus is.
We have Pluton, a ship as weapon of mass destruction, Poseidon, the ability to control the Sea Kings becoming manifest in the Mermaid Princess (once 800 years ago, and now again in Shirahoshi), and Uranus, a yet completely unknown weapon.

The AWs have one big inspiration: Mythology!

“Each of the Ancient Weapons is named after a Greco-Roman god affiliated with the earth, sea, and sky respectively: Pluto ruled the underworld, which was believed to be underground and all mineral wealth within the earth belonged to him; Poseidon was the ruler of the sea; and Uranus was the personification of the sky.” – OP Wiki

Poseidon was the ruler of the sea -> The AW Poseidon is the Sea King controlling Mermaid Princess
All mineral wealth within the earth belonged to Pluton -> The AW Poseidon is a ship, something tangible, probably out of wood (or steel?), in any case out of a material, something “from earth”.
Uranus was the personification of the sky. -> The AW Uranus is related to the sky? Probably.
Now the 3 Ancient Weapons have this pattern a lot:

  1. God of the sea, God of mineral wealth (earth), God of the sky
  2. A mermaid, a ship, something in the sky
  3. 1 weapon under water, 1 weapon on the water, 1 weapon above the water

So I say Uranus is something connected to the sky, maybe to wind and weather, there is no doubt for me.

Now to the question: What could Uranus be? And where is it?

1. Location:

Judging by the story, Pluton was first mentioned in Alabasta, a normal island in Paradise.
Poseidon: Fishman Island, deep under the sea below the Red Line.
That leaves? The New World! Uranus’ location/introduction in the story will be connected to the New World. Where in the New World? Well, there is 1 fact we know from Chapter 0: Gol D. Roger was in possession of an Ancient Weapon. I say he possessed Uranus, which would reveal us the location: Raftel!

2. Identity:

Let’s continue our way of thinking in patterns: So far we have one weapon as a person or animal, in general a living being (Poseidon), one weapon as a ship (Pluton).

That means Uranus is neither a person, nor a ship. What is left? And what of the things that are left is actually in the sky?

Some ideas: A flying animal? An airplane? A cloud? A sky island? A moon? If you count Shirahoshi as animal, then maybe Uranus is in fact a person? Or a Devil Fruit?

Let’s test these ideas:

  1. A flying animal? – I count Poseidon already as an animal, so no.
  2. An airplane? – Well that would also be a tangible weapon, just like a ship, so no.
  3. A cloud? – A little hard to imagine how a cloud could have/be a weapon, so no.
  4. A sky island? – Possible, but we already know that there are a lot of sky islands, and one of them being an Ancient Weapon wouldnt be very special anymore, so no.
  5. A moon? – There are 6 moons in One Piece, Enel being on one of them, and we know people lived on the moon. Kinda heard to imagine that one of those 6 would be a weapon, so no.
  6. A person? – I think Shirahoshi counts as a person (living being), so no.
  7. A Devil Fruit? – There are so many, many Devil Fruits, it would be kinda lame if Uranus is just one special Devil Fruit, so no.

Many believe that Monkey D. Dragon himself is Uranus, or that his Devil Fruit is Uranus, but that would be like a copy of Shirahoshi just with a human, right? It wouldnt quite fit the pattern.

Hmm, so nothing really fits? That’s disappointing. What is left then? Let’s gather some more info:

Magnitude

12243851553_c651c22057_o

In this picture, we see the 3 races from the moon, the Birkans, Skypieans and Shandorians, travelling from the moon down to the earth, this was long before the Void Century. The 3 races are symbolized by 3 different hats: 1 antenna, 1 helmet, and 1 fish-head -> Uranus, Pluton and Poseidon.

We see that the leader of this journey is in fact the character with the antenna hat: Uranus. This makes perfect sense, because in Greco-Roman mythology, Uranus is the grandfather of Zeus, Pluton (Hades) and Poseidon!

That means the Ancient Weapon Uranus should be of much greater magnitude than Poseidon and Pluton.

I also think that the 3 races from the moon were the founders of the Ancient Kingdom, as well as their weapons: Poseidon, Pluton and Uranus. This would fit 2 patterns:

  1. Mythology: God is “not from the earth”, God created the earth, and the human race with Adam & Eve (more about them later), just like the 3 races came “down to earth”.
  2. US Forces: Navy, Army and Air Force as “weapons” for the USA, just like Poseidon, Pluton and Uranus as weapons for the Ancient Kingdom.

Adam & Eve

I already stated, that Pluton is a ship, and that Poseidon is the Mermaid Princess, and I also stated their positions, Paradise (Pluton) and Fishman Island (Poseidon). We know two “holy” trees in One Piece: The Treasure Tree Adam and the Sunlight Tree Eve. How are these all connected?

Simple:

  • Poseidon is an AW related to the sea, it’s a mermaid – The Sunlight Tree Eve was mentioned on Fishman Island, because there was a huge tree giving sunlight 10,000 meters beneath the surface. I believe that was in fact the Sunlight Tree Eve, and the location fits perfectly: Fishman Island!
  • Pluton is an Ancient Weapon related to earth/wood, it’s a ship – Franky mentioned the Treasure Tree Adam, because Roger’s ship the Oro Jackson was built out of that special wood, just like Sunny. He even went to a neighbour island of Water 7 to buy pieces of that wood. So again, the location fits perfectly: Paradise!

Now what about Uranus? I said the location of Uranus was Raftel. I will now explain this further:
Raftel is the place where both trees are connected. Like Uranus is the grandfather of Pluton and Poseidon, on Raftel both trees (connected to Pluton and Poseidon) will combine/connect. We already have 2 trees for the other Ancient Weapons, so I wouldnt be surprised if the remaining weapon is connected to the remaining tree, the Tree of Devil Fruits!

Now what is the connection to the sky?

Sky does not only have to mean the physical sky, like “the place where all the clouds are”. Sky can also be understood in a spiritual way, like heaven. Poseidon is a living being, Pluton is a weapon/ship, like a huge item.
So we have a living being, and an item, what is left? -> Something neither living, nor tangible! Uranus is something spiritual!

First of all, nobody ever reached Raftel but Gold Roger, and we already know that he was in possession of an AW. Evertyhing is connected, the trees, the Poneglyphs and Rio-Poneglyphs, it all is “One Piece”. Second of all, the physical appearance of that tree must be huge, reaching far up into the sky, “godlike”. And lastly, the power of that tree to “give live”, to give power, and to unite all Devil Fruits is something spiritual.

Conclusion:

I’m not sure how exactly all this works out, but the simple idea is clear:
The Adam and Eve Trees are connected to the Ancient Weapons Pluton and Poseidon, and mythology tells us that Uranus stands above those two.
That’s why I think the combination of Adam & Eve is the Tree of Devil Fruits, which is nothing else than Uranus.

Think about it: We have a tree that generates sunlight, or energy, we have a tree that generates the matter/material, now all we need is the soul/spirit, right?
Uranus, the Tree of Devil Fruits, is a tree that generates spirit! Namely in form of devils inside the fruits. It brings “life” to those fruits, as well as supernatural powers.

I might be wrong about Uranus being somethign “spiritual”, it could also be the staff we see the Birkan holding (in the cover picture with Enel), like a magic staff. But what Im sure about is, that Uranus generates life, like I already explained.

  • Eve generates sunlight, to those living under water -> Shirahoshi
  • Adam generates a special material (wood of the Adam’s tree) to build objects that can withstand anything -> Ships
  • The Devil Fruit Tree generates spiritual energy/the devil’s soul/ki (however you wanna call it^^), like a god creating a form of life -> The ability to generate spiritual engery, e.g. control of the sky/weather/elements.

Whether or not all Devil Fruits can/will be combined to form the One Piece, or if the Devils will be combined to form the original Devil is a different question. In another theory I also mentioned that the D. characters are the descendants of the Ancient Kingdom, and the Guradian of the Devil Fruits, which would fit if my statement, that the Ancient Weapons belonged to the Ancient Kingdom, is true. Uranus is a weapon of the Ancient Kingdom, the Tree of Devil Fruits, therefore the descendants of that Kingdom are the guardians.

-> Uranus is the Tree of Devil Fruits.

What do you guys think?
