Hello once again everyone and welcome back to yet another theory for your entertainment. This time I shall diving into the plans and ironic lives of Blackbeard and his crew.
This may sound generic, but Blackbeard’s plan is to take the world for himself as its most powerful being. It becomes more complex when you realize that the world of OP rightfully belongs to the Marshall D. family.
-Its because of the Marshall D. family that the Tenryubittos are in control
-Its because of the Marshall D. family that the D clan almost went extinct.
-Its because of the Marshall D. family that Devil Fruits exist
-The Yami Yami no mi was the first DF to exist and it is the treasure of the Marshall D. family
-Instead of being rewarded for their assistance, the Marshall D. family was betrayed by the 2o kingdoms.
-Marshall D. Teach is simply taking his world back
Oda seemingly loves the number 3; from BB having 3 skulls one his jolly roger, to 3 winged races, to 3 ancient weapons and to 3 trees.
Pluton is linked to Treasure Tree ADAM. It is the power to take lives. It also represents men and the wood form the Adam tree is used to make strong and durable ships.
Poseidon is linked to Sunlight Tree EVE. It is the only living ancient weapon and power to control life while the tree linked to it sustains life. It represents women. Also, noticed how Poseidon can seemingly only be women?
Uranus is linked to the DEVIL fruit tree. It is the power to give life and the power of god(it where haki and DFs came from). The fruit of the DF tree gives those who eat it god-like power. Know what else is power? Knowledge. This is obviously a reference to the Tree of Knowledge in Christianity that was created by God. Who fooled Adam and Eve into eating the fruit of the tree? The Devil. Remember when I said that the Yami Yami no mi was the first fruit to exist? The first fruit was the spawn of the devil.
For the Marshall Ds, D means Devil.
Now DFs and Haki came from the same source, which is why haki can be embedded over DF abilities and once again, the yami fruit was the fruit DF to exist so naturally, wouldn’t it have superiority over that DFs that came after it?
The Yami Yami no mi is a black hole and it is the power of gravitation.
The Yami fruit also has the power to suck in EVERYTHING including devil fruit powers.
Guess what? The Yami fruit can only suck in haki and also because of the Yami fruit, Blackbeard himself cannot use haki. I’ll get more into this later.
Blackbeard’s plans are entirely luck based and went through many changes as time went on. His original plan was a follows:
1-Join WB’s crew as it gave him the best chances of finding the Yami fruit. BB joined WB at age 13.
2. Find strong and capable crew members and have them wait until its time to rise to the top
3. Poison WB to make him weak so it’ll be easy to replace him.
Blackbeard collaborated with Doflamingo in taking out Blackbeard. Dont you find it weird that Doflamingo was so certain that a new era was approaching(this was in Mock Town before Ace was even captured)? Its a little reference to Greek mythology. Heaven(Doffy) and the Abyss(Teach) worked together to take out Gaia the Earth(WB).
4. After obtaining the Yami fruit, he would join the shichibukai to gain access to Impel Down and recruit more strong people into his crew.
5. Kill off a weakened WB and replace him as a yonko
Of course, not everything goes according to plan or what BB likes to call it, fate. Thatch found the Yami fruit first so BB had to kill him and flee and BB called it a twist of fate.
Of course, Ace tracked down BB and thy had a duel. It was during this fight that BB realized that because of the Yami fruit, he could not uses haki. Every time we saw Teach, he got hit over n’ over n’ over again. He was just a punching bag.
Blackbeard was f*cked.
The Yami fruit removes his intangibility and increases the amount of pain he feels. Without haki, BB would be no match for the big dogs of the New World. Ace was laying unconscious by his feet and at that moment, BB thought of a new plan that depended entirely on luck/fate; stealing WB’s devil fruit. Taking WB’s fruit was a last minute decision.
BB tried to make Ace his nakama tell the very end; a clear indication that BB thinks of things on the fly.
Due to the nature of his own DF, Teach believed it stealing WB’s fruit possible but as I said before, it was gamble. However, we all know how lucky BB was.
With this, Blackbeard knew how to steal DFs and his and his crew engaged in DF hunts over the timeskip. Speaking of his crew…
The BB pirates parallels with the SH pirates. All of BB’s recruits ran into a wall and BB helped build a tunnel for them. Luffy’s recruits were doing fine and pursuing their dreams, only getting into trouble when Luffy showed up.
All of the BB pirates are heavy believers in fate.
1st ship captain
Burgess means “a person with municipal authority or privileges or an inhabitant of a town or borough with full rights of citizenship.” It also means castle or fort.
Past: Burgess has a championship belt and there are underground fighting arenas. Burgess loves to prove his strength but because his habit of getting the audience involved in his matches, Burgess was banned from the underground arenas. Such an unfortunate fate.

Doesn’t Doc Q look like Dr. Hiliuk?

Because of Doc’s DF ability that deals with death, Doc is always sick so he became a doctor to relieve his pain and became interested in testing the vitality and luck of others hence his apples rigged with explosives. Always being sick despite being a doctor is such an unfortunate fate. Fortunately, Fortunately, Doc Q meet Blackbeard who offered him a chance to test the true fate and luck of the world and relive himself of his pain as BB’s subordinate.
Irony: He is a doctor who is always sick…..his nickname is the grim reaper when he should be more of an angel being a doctor n’ all…..

5th ship captain
‘Lafitte’ means “a dweller at a boundary point or marker.”

BB Pirate’s Shipwright
“Corrupt King” Avalo Pizarro

Irony: Vasco can only function properly and ne rational when he is drunk. When he is sober, he is very irrational and violent.
“Great Battleship” San Juan Wolf
9 ship captain(he probably IS a ship….)
Oda said Wolf is the same kind of giant like other giants we’ve seen but just abnormally large.
Juan is a Spanish/manx version of John, means the lord is gracious and means beautiful and graceful in chinese.
San is an honorific and also means three, sun, to cut down, acid, the last one and direction.
Honor? Elbaf giants believe in honor. The last one? Saul is probably the last of his kind. To cut down? Elbaf giants are warriors. Lord? Elbaf giants believe in a god that watches over Elbaf.
Past: Many have speculated that Wolf is an Elbaf giant who was defeated by the leader of Elbaf with the shrink shrink fruit.
Irony: Wolf was the largest creature where seemingly no cage could was big enough for him, yet he was actually shrunk and put n a cage…..maybe…..probably….I dont know…..
The Blackbeard Pirates are relying on DFs to be big dogs and are the very opposite of the Red Hair Pirates who are all non-DF users. Each BB pirate will represent “the strongest.”
BB- strongest man
Shiryu- strongest swordsman
Burgess- strongest hand to hand fighter
Van Auger- strongest sniper
Doc Q- strongest doctor
Lafitte- strongest navigator
Avalo- strongest king/royalty
Catarina- strongest woman
Vasco- strongest fishman
Wolf- strongest giant
Who will be their opponents?
