“VITO’S CONNECTION WITH SANJI AND ZEFF” – “VITO’S DEVIL FRUIT”

Whit Theory One Piece17

We see in that panel, that someone from the ship, that saved Sanji said: “I must’ve heard them during the storm 3 months ago. Now there are some things I gotta mention.

How can you hear somebody through a storm? A storm should be to loud, especially from range.

They didn’t mention a fight between pirates, therefore I assume it was in range.

Whit Theory One Piece15

Now look at Vito’s sign:

Doesn’t it resemble a bat?

Whit Theory One Piece16

Wings, ears and tail. The second arrow is the steak, that got pierced through Dracula’s heart.

I assume this, because Vito and Dracula lookalike.

I know he is based on another person, but he doesn’t look like the person he’s based on.

So I assume his look got based off of Dracula and resembles his Devil Fruit Powers

Whit Theory One Piece19

Now this is how I am connecting this. A bat is able to send ultrasonic waves and the sounds will reflect back through echoes. I assume Whit was on that ship, that saved Sanji and that he ate the Bato Bato No Mi, model Vampire. I will write later about his Devil Fruit Powers in this theory.

Whit Theory One Piece21

We also know from one of the newest chapters, that Sanji would get a present box with someone’s head into it. Vito told Sanji something, that made Sanji come with them. I assume he told him, that he knows about Zeff and that Zeff’s head would be in that present box. There was even one panel, where it got stated that:

“It could even be someone from the Barriete Restaurant”, and why would Oda include this?

It has to have some reason in my opinion.

We also know, that Zeff is most likely the only person, that Sanji really cares about, when it comes to “real family.” He didn’t grow up with the Vinsmokes. The panel also mentioned, that it could be one of the Okama, but I don’t think, that Sanji cares, that much about them as we’ve seen. I also think, that Sanji trusts Luffy enough, that he can protects his crew. I really think, that Zeff is the reason.

Now let’s get to Vito’s Devil Fruit Powers.

As I’ve already mentioned he has Vampire Abilities and resembles a vampire(mainly Dracula), from his look.
Whit Theory One Piece8

He has black fingernails.

He wears sunglasses, which protect him from the sun.

He has a long tongue.

He is also called the “Monster Gun”, and Vampires were known to be monsters.

Furthermore vampires were able to use telekinesis. Look at the sound effect of the pistol. Its the sound effect when a thing starts to move. He also makes the same hand pose as a telekinesis user.

Whit Theory One Piece20

He can also use magic, like vampires could.

Whit Theory One Piece5

His hands are very large and Vampires hands were also very large.

Whit Theory One Piece23

Chopper clearly stated, that he thought, that there were only “two enemies.” And let’s be honest here. Chopper is not, that weak, that he can get overwhelmed that easily. It was a sneaky overwhelming. Its strange, that Vito just appears and disappears in all of the panels.

Either he was a bat and transformed back behind Chopper and Nami or he was hiding in the dust, because
Vampires could do these two things, but there was no steam before they went into Capone’s body, so I would delete the second possibility.

Or there is even the possibility, that he was very fast, because Vampires have superhuman speed and that might also be the reason how Chopper didn’t see him coming.

Whit Theory One Piece25

Sanji called himself “the hunter”, if you remember it. He already hunted a wolf and next time he will fight against Vito and hunt a Vampire. Werewolfs and Vampires are both mythical creatures, that got hunted.

Now you might argue, that Jyabura is not a “werewolf”, but I don’t think it has to be necessarily a werewolf, if we clearly get a connection there. Or maybe Jyabura can transform into a werewolf, when he improves his Devil Fruit Powers. Maybe his Zoan is capable of more wolf forms, when we see him the next time.

We have only seen Rob Lucci changing the forms of his Devil Fruits. Jyabura could’ve learned it too.

I think, that Vito is from Big Mom’s Crew, because of some reason:

Vito is only the “advisor”, of the Firetank Pirates.

I haven’t seen any crew yet with an advisor role yet and an advisor role wouldn’t make sense anyways
because why does someone gets called an advisor in a crew? Sanji makes smart things too, does that make him the advisor? I think “advisor”, is meant as cooperating with somebody.

Big Mom allies abnormal Crew Mates and Vito is abnormal if he resembles a vampire.

I think Vito will fight against Sanji, because:

Vampires have superhuman speed = Sanji’s specialty is speed and observation Haki.

Vampires could also transform into a hybrid form, that flies = Sanji uses Sky Walk.

Sanji hunted a wolf and called himself “the hunter”, and he will also hunt a vampire.

They both seem to be the smart ones as we know about Sanji’s doings (Mr.Prince, Arc Maxim etc.)

I assume Vito is very smart too, because he has an advisor role. And he seems very smart as from the things he did (blackmailing Sanji, overwhelming Chopper and Nami to get Sanji into Capone’s deal etc.)

Sanji would improve much in observation Haki in that fight and also overall combat ability. I think from all the things I’ve mentioned before Sanji is the perfect opponent against Vito.

Imagine an enemy, who has good observation Haki, who can fly, who has some nice quick gun moves, who’s very fast against Sanji.

Thanks for checking out my theory

FORESHADOW OF ZORO’S ARC IN ONE PIECE COVER PAGE!

When I was going through all colored cover pages, some of the pages got my attention. Those pages had “SH with Samurai costume”. So I searched all cover pages and arranged in chapter vise.

In Chapter 70 cover page, left bottom, below Usopp, there is a face. When I see that face, suddenly I remembered “Kin’emon” face.

Oda already designed or thought of samurai in his mind.

After in Chapter 310 cover page, right bottom of page. I saw “SHIBARAKU” word. So I searched it. But that searched result shocked me.

Shibaraku is among the most popular pieces in the classical Japanese dance-drama. The plot centers around the figure of Kamakura Gongorō Kagemasa, who has become the stereotypical bombastic hero of the classical Japanese dance-drama, with red-and-white striped makeup and strong, energetic movement. The historical Kamakura Kagemasa is famous for his bravery for having continued to fight after losing an eye in battle in the Gosannen War (1083-1087).

Kamakura Kagemasa lost one eye in Gosannen War. Zoro also have scan on his Left eye. Zoro may not lost his eyes but his eye is definitely injured from someone. Oda may have taken only plot of this Shibaraku play and adding his own idea and creativity, story may be different. Or Zoro may open his left eye while battling with enemy in Wano kingdom and he may eventually lose his eyesJust my prediction according to the source of SHIBARAKU play).

[​IMG]

Kamakura Gongorō Kagemasa (鎌倉権五郎景政) (born 1069) was a samurai descended from the Taira clan, who fought for theMinamoto clan in the Gosannen War of Japan’s Heian period. He is famous for having continued to fight after losing an eye in battle during that war.

We still yet to know full background of Zoro, since some people are saying, “He is the incarnation of Ryuma”. So, Zoro might have been a descended from one of the clan’s in Wano Kingdom.

Now we will talk about Gosannen war. The Gosannen War was part of a long struggle for power within the warrior clans of the time.

So lets assume that, “Wano kingdom will be having Power struggle between clan’s and one of the clan approached Kaido for support since wano Kingdom is not under WG. When KAIDO came to wano, he will defeat other clan members and finally he will cheat the clan which hired him. So after that Kaido will take control of Wano kingdom.”

Let’s continue with our SHIBARAKU drama – The climactic moment of this dram takes place when a goodly samurai is being assaulted by a number of villains. Kagemasa shouts “Shibaraku!” (Stop a moment!) loudly from behind a curtain (agemaku) and then steps out onto the hanamichi (a raised platform extending through the audience to the stage) in magnificent costume and makeup. Arriving at the stage, he sits on a stool (aibiki) and, in a special kind of monologue called tsurane, explains his story. He then drives the villains off.

We already know that, Kaido’s men’s are chasing that Kagetsu Clan members with Kin’emon, Momonoske and Kanjuru. As per current situation, SH will divide as two group and one group with Luffy will head for “Whalecake Island”. Another group having Zoro will advance to Wano kingdom.

Oda again, foreshadow the fighting between Zoro and Wano clan members.

In Chapter 526, We can see. Tiger and Dragon are seeing each other with killing intent.

[​IMG]

Through Kin’emon, Oda again foreshadow the fight in chapter 816.

Last but not least:

-In chapter 547 cover page. We can see all the pirates in Samurai costume, who are all escaped from Impel Down. We may expect Crocodile and Mr 1 inwano kingdom as well as Jinbe(we need new member to fight with Kaido).

-In chapter 582 cover page. While SH are playing game, we can see a cat wearing thrown in cover page. It indicates “Master Nekomamushi”. He may eventually join SH for his revenge.

-In Chapter 710 cover page. Usopp and Chopper are in different costume. Especially Usopp(in old man costume). Usopp may use this costume in Wano Kingdom for hiding himself, like in Water 7 how he used a mask.

BONNEY HAS NEVER BEEN CAPTURED – Akainu’s secret coup d’état

Hello guys! There is something that came to my mind when I thought about Jewelry Bonney and her connection to the WG. Something that I couldn’t just keep for myself. I am excited what you guys think about it. So here I go…

So first of all, I know all the theories out there concerning her possible connection to the WG, more specifically being the one that keeps the Gorosei alive. I am not gonna argue against the idea in general, but there is one part that bothers me ever since I first read it. Most people think that Bonney was able to escape Akainu/ the WG because she and her powers are so important to the Gorosei. Therefore, they had to keep her alive and she somehow managed to get away. But for me, this really seems like a contradiction. If Bonney really was that important, how could they let her get away? Wouldn’t they do everything to keep her locked up somewhere deep inside Maryjois, especially when they already made that mistake and let her escape once before?

I mean, we have already seen how good the WG is when it comes to keeping certain people as prisoners. The Whitebeards + Luffy couldn’t rescue Ace. Even the most dangerous pirates couldn’t escape Impel Down for 20 Years. Yet, Bonney – who isn’t even close to the power level of an Ace – could escape them? Without any help? I can’t really believe that.

As I already said, I don’t doubt that she actually is the one who keeps the Gorosei alive. Yet, I doubt Bonney would have been able to escape once again if she got caught by the government. So here is what I think that happend: Akainu never captured Bonney!

Remember, in chapter 595 we only see Akainu talking to Bonney. But we never actually saw him take her away.

967640014342029221268027540

Akainu is not the type of guy that lets prisoners escape easily. So I think what happened is that Akainu actually freed Bonney and told her to get away and stay incognito (that’s why we’ve only seen her covering her face afterwards). Maybe he killed all of the remaning crewmates and maybe even some of the marines who witnessed the conversation between Bonney and him. This would totally fit his ‘absolute justice’.

The big question that should come to your mind now is: why would Akainu let someone with that power, someone that is so important to the Gorosei, run away?

My answer: Akainu is actually planning a coup d’état and wants (the marines) to take control over the Government.

As we can see in chapter 793, Akainu holds a grudge against the Gorosei. He disagrees with their way of doing things and obviously hates the fact the he has to take orders from them.

But Akainu has been shown to be loyal to the Government so far, some of you might say.

Yes, that’s true. I am not saying he wants to destroy the Government or something. He just wants to gain the power over it, which – at the moment – belongs to the Gorosei. Plus, he had to be loyal to become the fleet admiral in the first place.

I also think that this kind of move would totally fit his character. He has shown to be a very strict man who would rather surpress his enemies with force than negotiating or even compromise with them. So a lot the government respectively the Gorosei does (for example the Shichibukai system, spreading false information, etc.) does not really fit to his way of thinking. A coup d’état would make perfect sense for him.

But Akainu ain’t stupid. Actually fighting the Gorosei would make him an enemy of the Goverment and therefore he would never be able to take controle over it. So when Blackbeard called to offer the deal to him, Akainu came up with the idea to free Bonney. This way, the Gorosei will start to get older again and since most of them are already pretty old, they will sooner or later die. And this is the moment Akainu and the marines make their move and take the power over the World Government.

In short:
Akainu wants to take over the control of the Government, because he disagrees with the Gorosei’s way of doing things. But since he can’t risk to openly fight them, he uses Bonney ,who’s Power keeps the Gorosei alive. When Blackbeard captured her, Akainu let Bonney escape so that the Gorosei coldn’t make use of her power and therefore would sooner or later die of age. This way, Akainu could take over the Government without risking to look like a traitor or enemy.

Please tell me whether you think this is possible or not! Thanks for reading.

DEATH OF THE TREES AND THE TRUTH OF DEVIL FRUIT’S WEAKNESS

Time for another theory based on extrapolating predictions from references Oda makes to other works. But I have something a little different for you this time. The subject of today’s theory is J.R.R Tolkien

Yep, Tolkien. Of course the author of one of the most beloved fantasy series of all time. But where are these references in One Piece?

I suppose i’ll start with the trees since I mentioned them first in the title. We’re all familiar with One Piece’s Adam and Eve, but did you know that Tolkien’s universe also features two important trees? More specifically, the Two Trees of Valinor. The Two Trees of Valinor were sources of light, one representing the sun and the other the moon. Now Eve’s affiliation with sunlight is entirely obvious, and i’m sure people who have been reading my series for a long time are familiar with my assertion that Adam is on the moon. Furthermore, the Trees of Valinor were created by Yavanna, referred to as the “giver of fruits”. This further links Adam and Eve to the origins of Devil Fruits

But the title mentions the trees dying, and i’m sure you’re wondering where i’m going with that. So moving on. The Two Trees of Valinor were eventually destroyed by Ungoliant. Ungoliant was the first spider, and was said to consume light and excrete darkness. Surely this sounds familiar to all of you –

[​IMG]

That’s right, Blackbeard. I believe that at some point Blackbeard will be responsible for the destruction of Adam and Eve, perhaps as part of his ongoing goal to monopolise powerful Devil Fruits

Not that this will be permanent of course, as in Tolkien’s universe it is prophesied that the trees will be revived from the breaking of the Silmarils, which contain the last traces of their light. The prophecy also refers to the flattening of a mountain range, which in this case refers to the destruction of the Red Line at End of Series

Now to the second part of the title – The weakness of Devil Fruits. I’m sure some of you have seen a theory going around which makes reference to a substance called Pyrobloine

[​IMG]

Pyrobloine is a substance found in Seastone which is ejected by volcanoes. Given that it is present in island cloud it must also logically be present in sea cloud, which weakens DF users as normal water does. But what people seem to have missed is that the sea itself would also have a very high concentration of this substance. Why? Underwater volcanoes. Of course, made a huge deal out of on the journey to Fishman Island, underwater volcanoes will also expel this substance into the surrounding waters

The surrounding waters are of course host to something significant to this mystery. The roots of Eve. I stand by my prediction that Eve is where the Devil Fruits grow. Logically this means that they contain Pyrobloine, as it would be absorbed by Eve’s roots as they draw nutrients from the surrounding sea water. I’m currently unsure of the specifics of why this weakens Devil Fruit users but for some reason the Pyrobloine in their bodies seems to react to other substances containing it. Given that Devil Fruits affect the bodies of their users and not their souls (confirmed by Tashigi’s use of Smoker’s power after their body swap)

[​IMG]

it would be reasonable to assume that their cells are being altered, meaning the weakening is likely tied to that. Speculative guess would say that Pyrobloine in some way affects the Mitochondria, which of course generate energy for cells and if stopped would result in the loss of their powers and energy. Given it’s presence in Skypiea it’s reasonable to assume that Pyrobloine is very easy to transfer airborne, which means it may also be the cause of DFs transferring to nearby fruits as it alters the cells of it’s new host after travelling through the air

This can also be tied to Tolkien. If a Devil Fruit were to be thrown into a volcano, what do you think would happen? The cells and Pyrobloine that cause it to have it’s power would likely return to the massive concentration of it in the magma, erasing it and permanently destroying the fruit in question. But why is this relevant?

One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them”

What do you get if you replace “Ring” with “Fruit”? The Yami Yami no Mi. The Yami will be destroyed after Blackbeard’s death to prevent another like him appearing, mirroring the end of the Lord of the Rings trilogy

*Theory by Go D. Usopp

BROOK, HIS POSSIBLY PAST AND WHAT’S NEXT FOR HIM

[​IMG]

Now Brook is one of my favorite characters in the Manga, he’s had very little character development compared to the rest of the SH’s and his past is very much unknown. One thing i’d like to note from the start is the sbs where Oda reveals the nationalities of the SH’s

[​IMG]

Luffy is Brazilian
Zoro is Japanese
Nami is Swedish
Usopp is African
Sanji is French
Chopper is Canadian
Robin is Russian
Franky is American
Brook is Austrian

This information will help you better understand the rest of the theory so i got it out of the way. Lets start with Brook’s name

Brook

As a Noun: A Small Stream

As a Verb: Tolerate of Allow

Brook’s character has always held steady and pretty much allowed anything to happen unless it involves threatening his Nakama, his personality basically is him tolerating any and everything that happens around him, despite being picked on or made fun like how franky and brook spoke still he had a smile on his face and enjoyed the presence of another person despite what harsh criticisms may come his way.

Austrian history actually helps further prove this as being Oda’s subtle hints, in 1955 after WW2 Austria was found to be an independent and sovereign state.

October 26, 1955 Austria made a pact that they would stay neutral and out of any military conflict, it also states it will not allow military from other countries to set up and wage war on their country.

Brook’s Past

[​IMG]

First thing i’d like to point out, Gekko Moriah had nothing to do with Brook’s “Death”, he said it happened some decades ago while clearly he lost his shadow like 5 years ago pretimeskip, 7 years ago post timeskip.

Notice Sanji’s reaction, he even goes as far as to be worried about what he’s hearing i don’t believe this is his manners since he gets made but his reaction is far more related on being concerned.

Brook said what? “I was promised i could live a second life”. Ok so this is where i’m getting suspicious, who would go out of their way to give Brook a Devil Fruit. Another thing, if somebody gave Brook this DF which we all know you only find out once you eat it, but had the knowledge of the DF beforehand means they’d of had to study the Devil Fruits with a book.

[​IMG]

Notice that Brook does not at all specifically mention who attacked him, if it was pirates he’d likely just say that but i believe he was attacked by Germa 66. First off i do understand Brook used to be with a Battle Convoy of a certain Kingdom, but i do not however believe Warmonger or Germa 66 has any direct relation.

[​IMG]

Proof on Brook’s DF having no relationship to Gecko Moriah

[​IMG]

Brook’s light Bone’s allowing him to run on water

[​IMG]

More info on Brook’s past

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

Brook’s Fencing

[​IMG]

Seeing as Ryuma has Brook’s personality it’s clear that Brook was specifically trained in Fencing, his fighting style resembles a mix of Fencing and Iaido(replacing sword from scabbard cutting and returning it)

Fencing is traditionally French, Iaido is associated with Japan, French and Japanese words consist of Brook’s fighting moves.

[​IMG]

Why was Brook targeted?

I have two options that make sense

Option A. For his Devil Fruit

Option B: Something he learned during his job as the leader of a Battle Convoy

We know Germa 66 is essentially hitmen for hire, mercenaries if you will. And it’s a mythical army commanded by Sanji’s father and they deal heavily in the Black Market. Blackbeard can’t be the only person targeting DF”s and i believe revival is quite an ability.

I fully expect Brooke to target and fight Germa 66 i believe we will learn more in the upcoming chapters but it’s clear its Germa 66 who wiped Brook and his crew out.

During the first part of WW2, the Austrians fought with the Germans, i believe Germa 66 to be related to the Nazi troops a hidden army, the Nazi’s did alot of crazy things, the Death Camps, Weapon Improvements, Immoral Experimentation, As i said earlier in the video eventually Austria became it’s own country. Perhaps it’s because Brook’s country is an ally of Germa 66, it would help explain why he decided to become a pirate, to get away from constant warfare. One thing that is strange is that Brook has said nothing about his country of origin as if he’s trying to forget about it.

The people he cares about are Laboon, the Rumbar Pirates, and the SH Pirates, but no one from his country seems to interest him.

I am not certain now one hundred percent but i hope the theory helps shed some light onto the skeleton dead bones Brook

THE KOGETSU CLAN AND THEIR PAST WITH THE MINKS

For my exploits today, I turned my eyes to the Samurai and the Minks and trying to figure out what Oda may be doing here. So I delved into Japanese culture and I’ve got some interesting ideas about where we are going for the future. I will seek to answer these questions;
  1. Why Kaidou and his men are hunting Kinemon, Kanjuro, Raizou and Momonosuke?
  2. Why is Momonosuke so important to everything?
  3. Why the Kogetsu Clan and the Minks are allies?
  4. Does Ryuuma play a role in the history between the Minks and the Samurai?

This is a very relevant topic to theorize about given the recent chapter, so I thought it would be fun. Did my research, and I’m back at you with another theory that’s 100% mine. Because that’s the only way I ever do them anyways.:D Oh and every time I introduce a new Japanese history term, it will be tagged with a wikipedia link so you can follow it straight away to get a little background.

[​IMG]

THE RULING SYSTEM ON WANOKUNI

This arc imo, is Oda’s baby. There hasn’t been an arc like this with literally 3, potentially 4-5 arcs of build up since like Alabasta. And never been an arc that will be so heavily steeped in Japanese Culture and History. He’s gonna make sure his historical references and artistic depictions of Wano are ON POINT. Japan is Oda’s thing. So I expect that many things onWano will be very true to authentic Feudal Era Japan.

The main thing however is the governing system of Wano. In Japan, there were two rulers, one was the Emperor, who held a more religious based position among the masses and then there was the Shogun, who held the office of the Shogunate,which makes him a military and political leader. The Shogun had more power than the Emperor. The weird thing is theShogun was usually appointed BY the Emperor. An odd system indeed.

The families from which Shogun were usually chosen were from the Feudal Lords, also referred to as the Daimyo. Individual Clans who had great power and wealth. It was very common for these Clans to hire Samurai to work under them.

There is another special position known as a Regent, known in Japanese as a Sesshō. This position is given to someone who’s job is to assist a child emperor before his coming of age. I believe the One Piece equivalent of this is Kinemon’s title of Retainer. Which brings me to my first point.

[​IMG]
This little Shit

1. MOMONOSUKE IS THE HEIR TO THE KOGETSU CLAN DYNASTY

Now the first thing you are saying is , but Kinemon is just a Retainer so how could his son be heir to the throne? For one thing, it is not unheard of, in fact it was common place for awhile, that members of the Imperial Family were appointed asRetainers. So Kinemon himself could be Royalty. Maybe just not directly in line for the throne.

But also, I’m going to say there is a possibility that Momonosuke might not be Kinemon’s son and something happened to his parents while he was a baby, and Kinemon was given the task of hiding Momonosuke’s identity from some enemy who was in power, due to the fact that his lineage was a direct threat to that power. And he’s lied to Momo their entire lives.

So Momo’s royal title was hidden from even him, since he was just a baby. That’s also a possibility. More importantly,Momonosuke means “Peach Emperor”, so there is that. And of course this parallels with Vivi and her plight to save her kingdom of Alabasta.But still, why does that make Momonosuke important to one of the Younkou?

2. KAIDOU IS THE CURRENT SHOGUN OF WANOKUNI

Because, as most people have guessed, Kaidou is the current Shogun of Wanokuni. And I don’t think he’s the rightful one either, as in lineage wise. Strength wise he might have earned it, but some of the Samurai don’t want him as the Shogun. The clues for this have been in the way his crew have talked about him. Particularly Sheepshead.

[​IMG]

There are some interesting different plot points that could have occurred to bring Kaidou to power. The first one is thatKaidou, in his endless quest to find a worthy opponent, came to Wano because he had heard about the strong warriors there. But none of them proved a challenge and he defeated them all. After which they submitted to his rule out of fear. Very possible.

Another idea I had is that he and Moria may have had their epic showdown on Wano, and when the Samurai tried to drive him out afterwards, they were unable to do so. This would explain Moria robbing Ryuuma’s grave. Still it doesn’t have to, but this one is also possible. I’m sure we will learn about the specifics of this on Wano as Kinemon mentioned it when he saw Zoro’s sword, whether or not it relates to Kaidou’s position.

The third way is more based on a historical event in Japan, known as the Boshin War.

[​IMG]

“THE BLOODLESS REVOLUTION”

 

The Boshin War was a civil war in Japan that was fought from 1868 to 1869 between forces of the ruling Tokugawa shogunate and a radicalized group of nobles and samurai who believed in returning political power to the imperial court. The dispute was over the Shogunate’s handling of foreigners since Japan’s opening of its borders in a previous decade.

The parallel I’m suggesting here makes the case for a far more devious plan. Maybe the Kogetsu Clan are like the Tokugawa, who supported the opening up of Wano to outside influences and some of the other powerful clans or maybe the Imperial Family themselves (which could set them up as joint antagonist with Kaidou) didn’t agree, suggesting that opening up the country would dilute the authenticity of the original culture.They thus rallied together and enlisted the strength of a powerful pirate, namely Kaidou, to overthrow the ruling Kogetsu Clan and take control of the Shogun monarchy. And re-instituted the Imperial Style of rule. In fact, in the Boshin War, the radicals and the Emperor were supporters of a publication known as the “Order to Expel Barbarians“. The ideas were extremely anti-foreign and the ruling emperor of the time agreed with the sentiments expressed here, and actively tried to interfere with the Shogunate.I like this idea the most because it sets up a Samurai villain as well, that could be an appropriate match for a particular swordsman. Obviously I mean Brooke:rolleyes:Whatever the reasons, I think it’s very probable that this is the structure of Wano’s current political system. Now onto the next half.

THE MINKS AND THE KOGETSU CLAN

Our theory will take us back a few hundred years to the past to theorize the events that made the Minks and Samurai become allies. If there is one thing that can bring two races together, especially two warrior races like the Minks and the Samurai, it’s a common enemy. So I’ve been thinking on it and I’ve come up with what I believe is the common enemy. It all starts, with a ……

[​IMG]

If you are not familiar with Oda’s One Shot Monsters, I would suggest going and taking a look at it, following the link I provided. The events are considered canon and I think it’s important because it’s entirely relevant as we go towards Wano.

I’ll summarize as I know some people are lazy. In the story, Monsters, we deal with a story about a town who was terrorized by a dragon which they thought was a natural disaster, but was the work of two criminals controlling the creature with something called the Dragon’s Horn. Ryuuma, a wandering Samurai who is just passing through. He’s misjudged, people think he’s low down crook, but in the end, the Swordsman they revered turned out to be a swine and Ryuuma was the true hero.

Now I don’t expect us to see Oda retread this story in One Piece with updated characters and settings. It has its place in OP lore, but to me the most important elements aren’t the story and the plot, but these key things.

  • Ryuuma himself as a character and his ideologies and honour
  • Dragons being depicted as forces of destruction
  • The “Dragon Horn”

If you notice, it is revealed that Ryuuma is the “King” swordsman character that people speak about as this legendary swordsman that’s the best in the world, but he doesn’t know that’s what people call him because he’s not in it for the fame and doesn’t stick around to receive it. So in this One Shot, Ryuuma has already established himself as a legend and the whole one shot is just giving us a glimpse into him.

I believe at some point in the samurai’s history, they were under the threat of Dragons wiping them out. Very reminiscent of the plot of the film “How to Train Your Dragon”. Basically, as a warrior people they would continuously fight Dragons to protect their homeland. But they were losing the battle. They needed to find the Dragon’s nest. But they could never do it. But even moreso, they needed to find a way to fight against the vicious beast.

Enter Ryuuma, and I’m theorizing that he is the creator of the FoxFire Style that Kinemon uses.


I’m not sure how this works, but I’m not gonna leave it up in the air either. That would be lazy of me. So let’s try to explainFoxFire style. I’m gonna theorize here and say it’s done in a similar way that Luffy generates fire with his Red Hawk. A mixture of an extremely high speed slash and haki that creates friction with the air, enough to ignite it. Also of note is how do One Piece swordsman create an air slash?The best example we have ever had is the idea that they slice the air, using their blades so quickly, they create a small momentary vacuum space where the blade has passed through, that when air closes in, it becomes compressed and takes the shape of the slash and continues along the initial direction of force. That’s getting really theoretical, but it’s the only explanation that makes any sense. That and of course, it’s MANGA DERR!!!:faceplam:Now recall that the admirals create an invisible haki barrier against Whitebeard that manifested in the air itself.

What if using haki and the blade as a conduit, just like the admirals used their hands to create a wall, you create a wall width out of the blade. Then the Foxfire style uses that width to have an influential area of the blade’s vacuum slice that is larger, which then can cause Fire to be sucked into it and extinguished? Using the same idea, but in a different manner. We are spit-balling here but bare with me.

I’m thinking this style was created by Ryuuma, to combat Dragons in particular. After Ryuuma created the FoxFire Style, he showcased its power against the Dragon attack and saved the people. Like the original Monsters One Shot, Ryuuma was thought to be a no good samurai, with no skill or worth. A clutz. But he proved them wrong, by saving the Samurai, and eventually dragons stopped attacking Wano altogether.

But he knew something was wrong. They only chased away the Dragons. They didn’t exterminate them. If they weren’t attacking Wano, where would they go?

Yes Zou. Look at this tropical climate. My idea is that either they went out on their own and tracked down Zou or at some point a Dragon came to Wano and collapsed and died, and attached to it was a wounded Mink, who held on for his life. Then it gets revealed to the Samurai that the Dragons they chased off, were now tormenting the Minks.

Why would it go to Zou? Because as we know, Zunisha’s water rain showers bring with it tonnes of food and fish. This could be easily seen as a free meal for a flying predator. Especially one who lost it’s main food source.

[​IMG]

Doesn’t look like it would as a Dragon’s next, but my idea stems from the those giant towers in the picture above. Why are they there? What purpose could they possibly serve? The Minks seem to live in the city and the Night Minks have their own residential district at the base of the Whale Forest. None of the Minks seem to live there at all, so what possible reason could they have for building such gigantic structures? My idea?

To shelter from the onslaught of the Dragons centuries ago. Fortresses shrouded in bush would never suffice against the flames of a dragon. So they built structures out of the silt that Zunisha brought up dumped on its back to create shelters that could withstand the heat.

While simultaneously fighting for their survival. Now the Kogetsu Clan and their samurai, led by Ryuuma, went out to defend Zou from the Dragons.

That clan and the Minks bonded and almost brought the Dragons to an end. Now this doesn’t contradict with my other theory on the Minks and the Samurai being enemies at one point in history, because that’s in the Void Century Era. I’m suggesting hundreds of years later, this happened that could have mended relations, specifically with the Kogetsu Clan.

Nekomamushi did say this chapter that the Minks and the Kogetsu Clan, (not all Samurai) are friends. Note also, as I mentioned above, the Daimyo were made up of many different clans collectively.

As for how Ryuuma died, I can’t possibly say. It’s best not to push it too far. This is an unsubstantiated theory after all.

STORY SIMILARITIES WITH SKYPEIA

This section will just highlight some strong parallels that would explain why Zunisha would have this kind of history. And it’s mainly the fact that it shares lots of similarities with Skypeia.

  • Skypeia and Zou both follow two arcs that are also very similar (Dressrosa/Alabasta)
  • They both are islands where the people live at high altitudes.
  • They both are extremely hard to reach
  • Both involve groups of people who are connected to legends from past individuals (Norland/Ryuuma)
  • They both appear to be very closed off societies at the beginning.

I feel like Ryuuma is very much like Norland, in that’s he’s historical, butnot Void Century historical and an important part of some story Oda wants to tell. All of what I said could be wrong, but it’s fun to speculate.

SUMMARY

So to summarize, the Kogetsu Clan are the main clan that oppose Kaidou and the Imperial rule on Wano. Momonosuke is the last heir to that bloodline and Kinemom, Kanjuro and Raizou are all loyal to that family and trying to protect him. They wanted to come to Zou to enlist the Mink’s help in taking down Kaidou’s rule. They also have a group of Samurai back at Wano willing to fight.

Ryuuma was instrumental in saving the Samurai from the onslaught of Dragons in their past and the creator of the Fox Fire style. He and the Kogetsu Clan saved the Minks who were indirectly affected by their defeat of the Dragons and fostered a bond between the two groups.

Hope you guys enjoyed.

CAPTAIN YORKI IS STILL ALIVE

A bizarre statement, right? Well, there is a little bit of evidence scattered across the manga that indicates he may still be alive. In fact, he may be this guy:

[​IMG]

It’s popular belief that this guy is Scopper Gaban, the Second Mate of the Roger Pirates, but there is no reasoning for this at all beyond the assumption that the hat he is wearing comes from Wanokuni.

There is some logic behind my thesis. Firstly:

  • The entire ‘From the Decks of the World’ cover story only contains characters the Strawhat Pirates already know. They do not know Gaban.
  • This means that the mystery man is also known to at least one of the Strawhat Pirates, and yet Oda hides his identity because it is very important.
  • Laboon is happy. This is very bizarre given his idiosyncrasy of bashing his head against the Red Line when waiting for the Rumbar Pirates. Why is he enjoying himself?

Yorkis favourite drink is Sake and his favourite song is Binks Sake. What are they drinking in the cover page? Sake. He’s also friends with Crocus, obviously, and they are on friendly terms. The cover story shows characters celebrating the fact the Strawhat Pirates are not dead. These covers celebrate specific characters’ being alive, for example, the cover story mostly features old close friends:

Luffy

[​IMG] [​IMG] 

Zoro

[​IMG] [​IMG]

Nami

[​IMG]

Usopp

[​IMG] [​IMG]

Sanji

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

Chopper

[​IMG] [​IMG]

Her close friends are all dead – Robin

[​IMG] [​IMG]

Franky

[​IMG]

His close friends are all dead, right? – Brook?

But that’s wrong! Brooks close friends are not all dead. He has Crocus and Laboon! If you connect the dots it’s perfectly plausible to think that’s Yorki, right?

But wait, isn’t he dead? – UNCONFIRMED! We’ve already had an instance in which a presumed dead character has returned, and Oda even hinted at this. Remember Sabo?

[​IMG]


But Oda didn’t hint at him still being alive!
Oh?

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


The only confirmed conclusion we can actually make from his “death” is that the crew partially split up. In fact, Brook told Yorki to “treasure his life”, which indicates he would live on but would simply be unfit for Piracy. A common misconception is that everyone else contracted this disease when in fact they all died from poisoned wounds:

[​IMG]

Plus, the virus is “unknown” and it’s clearly never explained as to whether he will die or not. I speculate that he made the journey across the calm belt and, during the timeskip, completed his promise to Laboon. Do you guys think it’s possible for Yorki to be alive? I certainly do, I think that old man (with the same hair colour as Yorki) drinking Sake (his favorite drink) with two of his friends (Laboon and Crocus) at Reverse Mountain (where he promised he would return) is in fact Yorki in his 80’s.

[​IMG]

Note: Captain Yorki is also based on Calico Jack, his name is actually Calico Yorki. Calico Jack made a disappearance from Piracy only a few years after he became famous, he later returned from his Hiatus. I won’t go into immense details but Yorki’s own journey parallels that of Calico Jack who supposedly became ill.

Am I being a lunatic or am I making sense?

CP0’S POWERS

If CP0’s main trio that we saw in Dressrosa has Devil Fruit abilities, there is no doubt these will be incredibly powerful powers. Afterall, given their role and likely amount of power as the ultimate shield for the Tenryuubito and Gorosei against external threats, it would be ludicrous to think they would have less powerful Devil Fruits. Of course there is the possibility that they do not possess Devil Fruits, but I find this unlikely.

In another theory of mine, I explain the significance of the name ‘AEGIS’, you can give that a read here:
http://www.onepiecegold.com/the-purpose-of-cp0-aegis/

One important thing to note is that AEGIS is a defensive ability that the Ancient Greek Gods possessed. This and other factors considered, I will rule out Logia Devil Fruit powers for the following reasons:

  • Rokushiki is most effectively used when a users body is enhanced, Logias do not do this, however, Paramecia can and Zoans always do
  • There is a limited number of Logia fruits Oda can use at this point

Now, as I said, as Rokushiki is a heavily body-dependent fighting style, the members of CP0 all likely have very powerful Kenbunshoku and Busoshoku Haki.

According to One Piece trivia, Oda has namedropped another Rokushiki technique called ‘Chokkai’, it’s name means ‘to bother’, although nothing more is known, whether Oda is joking or not is also questionable. If Oda is being truthful about this, having not seen this technique before, we will likely see CP0 using this. If Chokkai is real I suspect the technique will involve after images and immense speed the same way Rokuogan involved immense strength.

From what we know so far, this is a list of abilities they likely have:

  • Busoshoku Haki
  • Kenbunshoku Haki
  • Chokkai
  • Rokuogan
  • Kami-e
  • Geppo
  • Soru
  • Tekkai
  • Rankyaku
  • Shigan
  • Combination of Haki and Rokushiki

As for Devil Fruits:
Aegis to our best knowledge has three different possible source materials in Greek Mythology. There are three of these CP0 agents and therefore I believe that they each have a direct link to every singular part of Aegis.

The first instance will relate to this man:

[​IMG]

Basilisk Mythical Zoan – Hebi Hebi no Mi Model: Basilisk
This is because, in myth, the shield first contained the skin and hair of a Gorgon, granting it incredible invulnerability as it could use Stone for protection and manipulate stone as well as turn enemies into stone. Although the ability to turn people into stone is taken by the Mero Mero no Mi and the Gorgon-based character is embodied in Hancock, a Basilisk Zoan is still very likely and powerful

[​IMG]

Powers:

  • Flight
  • Turn opponent to stone upon contact (not automatic)
  • Extra speed and agility
  • Size advantages
  • Greater muscular power
  • Regenerative ability to external wounds

Secondly, the right hand man from the long arm tribe:

[​IMG]

Chimera Mythical Zoan – Neko Neko no Mi Model: Chimera
Legend also states that a Chimera-esque creature of unspecified appearance had formed a part of the Shields construction. The creature is likely strongly related to Chimera. Therefore it’s highly probable that Oda would use the actual Chimera for this guys powers

[​IMG]

Powers:

  • Flame breath
  • Poisonous bite from tail
  • Claws of incalculable strength (swords slashing?)
  • Horns of incalculable density
  • Enhanced speed
  • Enhanced strength and power

Lastly, the tallest of the three characters:

[​IMG]

Iron Paramecia – Tetsu Tetsu no Mi
There was a giant killed by Athena called Pallas, and another called Asterus, both of whom had incredibly strong hyde/skin that was resistant to any mortal damage. At the time of the Greeks, Iron was the strongest metal discovered, hence this is a good choice. This guy is huge anyway and can be considered a symbolism the giants in question, his ability will greatly enhance his ability to defend himself

[​IMG]

Powers:

  • Enhanced defence (absolute defence? +Tekkai + Busoshoku Haki)
  • Greater muscular strength
  • Power and density increased greatly
  • Ability to create and manipulate pre-existing Iron
  • Slight magnetic properties

Well, whether I’m right or wrong, these guys are totally monstrous, but this is a little bit of fun, hope you enjoyed! Do you like these choices of Devil Fruit?

NAMI’S FINAL POWERUP, THE ULTIMATE CLIMA-TACT

[​IMG]

As you know Nami has consistently been fighting with the clima-tact, however i do not believe the clima-tact has reached it’s final form yet. That is why i believe Nami well gain an ultimate clima-tact.

WHAT WILL HER POWER BE
Well i have had 2 ideas

  • The ability to create iron clouds and merge them with her thunder clouds, to create a destructive lightning-

-Ohm’s weapon is made of iron cloudsword

[​IMG]

  • She breaks up her new clima-tact; and straps each piece to her body. When this happens, she will be able to release thunder clouds just by moving; however she will gain a lightning tolerance and won’t be affected by the shock. She will then use fishman karate to manipulate the clouds.

I personally think both of these would be good clima-tact power-ups, since they would require little to no charge up time; something that all her attacks need.

FISHMAN KARATE-ENHANCED CLIMATACT
This clima-tact works by Nami breaking up a clima-tact(not the clima-tact she currently has) then strapping each piece to her body. With this she will be able to create different clouds depending on how she moves her body. She can then use fishman karate to create different techniques such as tornadoes, hurricanes and lightning punches

I believe this would be a good power up for Nami for a couple of reasons.

  1. She doesn’t need a huge distance to be effective- for most of her attacks, she needs to keep a distance since it takes a few seconds to create lightning and in those seconds she is very vulnerable. But with the new clima-tact, she won’t need to run away from her opponents to gain distance. Rather she could run towards her opponent; by moving her body she would create more thunderclouds around her, she could then use fishman karate to use enel-like techniques by launching all the lightning clouds at her opponents.
  2. Would increase hand to hand combat, Nami is really bad at this so it would help her a lot; it would also allow her to use CoA more effectively

IRON CLOUD-BASED CLIMA-TACT
This clima-tact works by creating island clouds inside itself, compressing the island clouds; then creating iron clouds, which can be turned into thunder-iron clouds to give them lightning properties. How would she make a clima-tact like this? Well if you didn’t know, island clouds are created by sea stone 

This leads me to believe that she will get a sea stone clima-tact. I believe this is very likely because the SMILE factory is coated in sea stone and when it’s destroyed Franky will most likely take that sea stone to make weapons. I also believe she will use a breath dial, as sea stone only creates island clouds when a certain compound is released due to high temperatures. With this sea stone clima-tact, she will be able to create large amounts of island clouds rapidly. Then due to the narrow space inside the clima-tact, these island clouds would be compressed and turned into iron clouds. She could then spin the iron clouds rapidly to turn them into iron-storm clouds that shoot lightning.
Here are just some of the techniques that she could do with this:

  • iron-lightning blasts; same thing as her wind gusts, but with iron lightning instead.
  • iron-lightning sword; creates a long sword with iron lightning that can be used to fight with
  • iron-lightning island; creates an entire sky island of iron lightning; she could use her clima-tact to launch this island at opponents
  • iron-lightning tornado; creates a tornado of iron lightning. Imagine a regular tornado, then image what would happen if the air inside that tornado was as hard as lightning and shot out electricity
