ROGER’S 4 RED PONEGLYPHS: BIG MAM, KAIDOU AND THE WANO SHOGUN

We learned five things in the last chapter:

1) There are 4 Poneglyphs
2) The 4 Poneglyphs together shows the location to Raftel
2) Kaidou and Big Mam each has a poneglyph
3) The Kozuki clan created the Poneglyphs
4) Oden Kozuki, the father of Momonosuke, was a member of Gol D. Roger’s crew
5) Oden Kozuki was executed by Kaidou and the Shogun of Wano.

How is all of this connected? I’ll get straight to the point like I always do.

It was said that the 4 yonkou were the ones closest to One Piece and it seems that was stated in a literal sense. WB and Shanks knows how to get to Raftel so the Red Poneglyphs are “worthless” and Kaidou and Big Mam each has one. Shanks does NOT have a red poneglyph.

Kaidou stole a red poneglyph and Big Mam was ENTRUSTED with another by Roger himself. I’m not joking.
***************

The 4 Red Poneglyphs

Oden Kozuki was a member of the Roger Pirates so of course he knows the history of the Void Century. With the new info that it was the Kozuki who made the Poneglyphs, it is blatantly apparent that Wano fought along side the Ancient Kingdom.

As we know, the AK, which includes Wano, was defeated with Wano itself being split in two and half of it siding with the 20 Kingdoms, giving rise to the marines’ swordsmanship training and the Bald Gorosei.

Being one of the AK’s strongest allies, Wano or just the Kouzuki clan, made the poneglyphs and 4 red ones detailing how to get to Raftel and they were given to 4 ally nations: Elbaf, an unknown place, Zou and of course Wano. I think the last red poneglyph is in Elbaf.

The 4 red poneglyphs show the location to Raftel when the 4 of them are deciphered meaning, Gol D Roger used the Voice of All Things to follow its guidance leading him to Raftel, implying that the red poneglyphs are not in the WG’s hands.

Roger’s crew scattered after Raftel was discovered and one of the red poneglyphs ending up in the protection a former Roger Pirate or ally: Big Mam.
**************

Kaidou, Wano and the Red Poneglyph

Why would the Shogun of Wano joined Kaidou and murder Oden Kozuki? Because Oden was deemed a traitor.

Wano used to be under the protection of WB(after he saved it from Kaidou) but after the death of WB, Kaidou returned. This time however, things would be different. Why? Because Oden Kozuki told the Wano Shogun some info of the Void Century and I believe they were trusted friends.

Like the other Roger pirates, Oden was awaiting Roger’s successor but when Oden told his friend the Shogun about the history, the Shogun was pissed. Not only was the pissed upset at what he heard, he was filled with greed and wanted to more. The Shogun of Wano wanted a war; a war where Wano can get its revenge on this world of lies and a sense of greed for getting ultimate power.

Oden was of course against the Shogun’s irrational behavior but there was someone invading them that shared the shogun’s ideals:

100 Beast Kaidou

Kaidou thinks the world is hollow and should perish. He wants to engulf the world in the greatest war ever and the Shogun had similar motives(also, Kaidou’s wanting to commit suicide for his failures is similar to samurai committing suicide when shamed). Things got worse when the Shogun sided with Kaidou and told the beast what he knew. Yes people…Kaidou knows some of the history too. He knows what the Shogun knows. This made Kaidou want the Red Poneglyph by any means thanks to Whitebeard himself.

[​IMG]

Kaidou recalled that WB said that whoever finds the OP would cause the world to be engulfed in a war and with the Red Poneglyph that is a key to Raftel’s location is in his possession, he goal is one step closer.

However, Kaidou can’t do a thing with the Kozuki clan. The Shogun and Kaidou thinks the members of the Kozuki clan(Momo, Kinemon, Kajnuro and Raizou) can somehow decipher the red poneglyph. This is one for the reasons the fled Wano for Zou and also how Kaidou knew to send Jack specifically to Zou. Both Kaiodu and the Shogun want to know what the red poneglyphs says.

For a second scenario, the shogun could just be a coward and decided to join the winning side.
*************

Big Mam, Roger and the Red Poneglyph

First of all, how does Nekomunashi know that Big Mam has a red poneglyph?

I think Big Mam was a former member or at least an ally of the Roger Pirates. Why? A few reasons…

In previous theories, I came to the conclusion that the Ancient Kingdom and the D clan is based off South America or at least, the mythical cities of South America.

Big Mam also has connections to WB who was a friend of Zou and Wano.

Nothing concrete, I this is the reason why I think Big Mam was either entrusted with or was able to get her hands a Red Poneglyph. I also think that this is the reason Germa 66 are going business with her; they want that poneglyph. It also increase the chances of Big Mam becoming an ally of Luffy since he seemingly has Kaidou AND half of Wano after his head.
******************

Things You Should Know About X-Drake

  • In the line-up of the pirate ships owned by the Eleven Supernovas (excluding Luffy and Zoro’s, as well as the Heart Pirate’s Submarine) shown in the aftermath of the Battle of Marineford, there is what appears to be a Marine battleship with an inverted color scheme. Due to his former life and rank as a rear admiral in the Marines, X-Drake either captured this ship for his own purposes or used the inverted color scheme for his personal ship.
  • Drake is the first person to be revealed to have eaten an Ancient Zoan Devil Fruit, when it’s concept is first introduced.

  • His name is based on real life privateer Sir Francis Drake.

1590 or later Marcus Gheeraerts, Sir Francis Drake Buckland Abbey, Devon.jpg

  • In the 5th Japanese Fan Poll, X Drake is ranked the 58th most popular character in One Piece.
  • He shares his name, sideburns, and Voice actor with another character. However, this character is still a member of the Marines and is also non-canon.
  • He was given two birthdays: one through an SBS (October 24th) and another in a databook (October 10th)

What If?

There are a few theories about Bonney being Sanji’s bride, what do you think?

tumblr_o1gfgnYxbN1uu1a5ho1_r3_1280

D Means…

will of d

1. Myth: Dragon appeared in Loguetown and Luffy was able to hear the dragon talking in the Apis Arc. The D must mean DRAGON.

Fact: The Warship Island Arc was not canon. Therefore everything in it (except for a few things like the Calm Belt information) was not written in the manga by Oda. This rumor was originally created by a popular anime blogger who took a wild guess after watching the arc. Due to the popularity of said blog, others also pondered on the idea (though some fans came to this meaning on their own accord). However, it has been proven Dragon has an important plot role.

2. Myth: It is the first letter of the civilization name.

Fact: We do not know what the D. means at the moment. This comes from the significant actions of the World Government to stop Clover saying the name.

3. Myth: It is not a D it is part of a smiley! (example: :-D). Also, every D character that appeared in the series has smiled (even Portgas D. Rouge).

Fact: This one stems from the act of smiling upon death.

4. Myth: It is the name of the royal family of the lost civilization or a clan within it.

Fact: We do not know anything about their culture or if they even had a royal family.

5. Myth: D. means “Devil”.

Fact: This one is a nod to Devil Fruits. Rosinante did however state that those with the D. are God’s natural enemy, which is what a devil is conveyed as.

6. Myth: It means “Damashii”.

Fact: This one is linked to the talk of spirits and “will” throughout the series.

7. Myth: It is half a circle.

Fact: This one comes from “One Piece”, the speculation is that the D. is half a circle or pattern/symbol. In other words, acquiring Roger’s treasure will result in the symbol becoming “One Piece” again.

8. Myth: It means “Danger”. One of the Gorosei said so in Post-War Arc!

Fact: One of the elders really said that, but that’s due to the translation “D always means danger”, meaning that all of the people with D on their name were dangerous people.

9. Myth: It is given to those who can start a new era. Such as Roger starting a new age of pirates, and Blackbeards’s betrayal and Ace’s capture leading up to the Marineford War.

Fact: Portgas D. Rouge’s only (confirmed) significant act in life was giving birth to Ace.

KOUZUKI FAMILY’S LINKS WITH THE ANCIENT KINGDOM

Recently we were introduced to the Kougetsu family, which was re-named the “Kouzuki” family.

Kou + Getsu = Deep Red/Crimson + Moon

Kou + Zuki = Light + Moon

However, with deeper searches, I found out that Kou also means “Scarlet”:

Kou + Zuki = Scarlet/Light + Moon

 

Notice how Kouzuki/Kougetsu are both associated with the Moon.

The Red Poneglyph & The Kouzuki Family Crest

[​IMG]

Seeing as how Kouzuki can mean “Scarlet Moon”, and scarlet is a deep red colour, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kouzuki family were the ones who were involved with the creation/placing of the Red Poneglyph in Zou.

If this were true, then it would mean that they had strong links with the Ancient Kingdom.

Interestingly, the colour red is usually affiliated with happiness in Japanese culture, unlike Western culture where it represents negativity (danger, death etc…)

So what if the Red Poneglyph doesn’t tell us of any thing bad, but rather, something good:
I was thinking that it might’ve talked about how the Kouzuki & Minks became united due to the AK helping out. Just speculation though.

We also know that Wano has no links with the World Government, its fighters being so strong that they even scare away marines.

This would mean that during the Void Century, the 20 Kingdoms were perhaps unable to invade and destroy Wano Kingdom – thus the Wano may know a lot about the happenings of that time since they survived.​

Luffy interested?
Luffy rarely ever cares for such things.
Usually he starts snoring, picking his nose, or outright says he doesn’t care.

It’s interesting that Oda chose to show Luffy being actually interested in what “Kouzuki” is.

Most of us can agree by now that the Ancient Kingdom was probably alien in origin, possibly coming from the moon.
“D. = Half-Moon Theory”

Clover’s Illustration Of The Ancient Kingdom

[​IMG]

Look at this:

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Don’t the 8 balls surrounding the bigger ball at the centre of the crane resemble the 8 phases of the Moon around Earth?

Defo interesting. Another link with the Moon.

Furthermore, the crane crest may be based on the real life Daimyo crane crest:

[​IMG]

I found out that it’s also the symbol for the Japan Airlines:

[​IMG]

Could the Kouzuki’s Kamon represent freedom?
The red represents happiness.

Additionally, the Tsuru Kamon (Crane Family Crest) is usually affiliated with royalty in Japan.

Look at this:

[​IMG]

There are several Crane-Kamons on Luffy’s kimono – could this have been a foreshadowing of the Kouzuki, or also, have been a foreshadowing of Luffy being of royalty.

It’s a common theory that Luffy is descended from Joy Boy (King of the AK), and thus is of royalty.

If we dig deeper, it could be a link between the D. People (AK People) and the Kouzuki.

Since the Crane-Kamon is common in Japan, it could just be a coincidence.
But we know that Oda doesn’t add things for nothing.

[​IMG]

Remember this?

How about this?

[​IMG]

Seems familiar.

[​IMG]

Seeing as how the first symbol represents the Celestial Dragons, could the second symbol represent the Ancient Kingdom?
Or more particularly, an important ‘sub’-symbol of the Ancient Kingdom.

Seeing the links between the Kouzuki Family and the Ancient Kingdom, I wouldn’t be surprised if the main royalty (Oden & Momo) of the Kouzuki Family are actually D. in origin.
By D. I mean being descendants of the Ancient Kingdom.

As we know, the Ancient Kingdom had a unity of different countries (e.g. Fishman Island, Shandora etc…), so since the Kouzuki were likely part of that unity, their main royalty could’ve been related to them.

[​IMG]

Momonosuke, like his father, can hear the “Voice Of All Things” (perhaps Law too since he’s drawn silent in the same row), and Neko & Inua say that someone else they remember could too.
It could’ve been Roger.

Seeing as so far all of those who could hear the Voice Of All Things are D. People (descendants of the AK), then perhaps the main royalty of the Kouzuki Family are descendants too.

8 Races = 8 Balls

[​IMG]

Here we see 9 different Races.
But since the Fishmen and Merfolk live together, we can count this as 8.

If not the moon phases, could the 8 small balls in the crest be a reference to these 8 ‘Races’.

This is all speculation though, as so far we haven’t gotten too much info on the Kouzuki Family.​

Kuma’s Intention

Myth: Kuma separated the Straw Hat Pirates so they can become stronger.

Zoro,_Luffy,_and_Sanji_Attack_PX-4

Fact: The full reason behind Kuma separating the Straw Hat Pirates is still unknown though a great deal of evidence seems to point to this myth being proven at least partially true.

By Chapter 591, it was revealed that Kuma wished to save the Straw Hats. Sentomaru also stated that the user of the Nikyu Nikyu no Mi can control where to send people, which was also proven by the fact that Perona was sent to a dark castle like she wanted. The Straw Hats then landed on suspiciously convenient spots (like Zoro ending up on Mihawk’s island and Nami on an island dedicated to studying the weather). This evidence strongly supports the myth’s veracity. Even so, until it is confirmed, this cannot be taken as a fact.

The greatest enigma in One Piece: Monkey D. Dragon

  • Devil Fruit: What is his Devil Fruit? Did he even eat one?
  • Ancient Weapon: Does he possess one? (Uranus)
  • Ancient Kingdom/Void Century: Does he know the true history? Does he search for the Poneglyphs?
  • Power-Level: How strong exactly is he? Who does he compare to? Supernovas? Admirals? Yonko?
  • Motivation: Why did he choose a life of hiding, secrecy and war? Did something happen to him?
