CURIOSITIES

Tashigi and Kuina

trivia

1. Myth: They are twins!

Fact: Kuina is seen as a baby and as an only child in Chapter 0.

2. Myth: They are the same character.

Fact: So far they are only considered different characters and no evidence has been stated to say otherwise since Kuina’s body is seen in the manga. This is mainly due to how 4Kids changed her death to an injury, from which many fans assumed the injury Kuina sustained was connected to Tashigi’s bad eye sight. Tashigi was drawn as a child in an SBS, and her appearance was very different from Kuina’s, making it clear that she and Kuina are separate characters.

The Destroyer of Fishman Island

0000

Myth: Shyarly only said the Destroyer of Fishman Island would be wearing a Straw Hat, not that it is Luffy. Jinbe’s going to go get a bunch of Straw Hats for the children of Fishman Island. Whoever the Destroyer is will just take one of these hats to taunt the Fishmen and/or the Straw Hat Pirates. After all, Luffy would never destroy Fishman Island! Plus the Straw Hats have left Fishman Island, and so far they have not gone back to any previously visited island!

Fact: So far, nothing has been confirmed. While Keimi commented that Shyarly’s prediction could take up to a year to come to pass, there was no direct evidence that Luffy is indeed the Destroyer. While the Straw Hats have not yet backtracked, with the introduction of the three needle Log Pose, the dangers of the New World, and the Straw Hats’ promise to Shirahoshi may mean that the Straw Hats will revisit Fishman Island before the end of the story. However, this myth may just be hopeful thinking by fans, and the circumstances under which Fishman Island will be destroyed, if it actually is, are unknown.

10 Things You Should Know About Roronoa Zoro

  • Originally, Zoro was planned by Oda to be the bodyguard of Buggy. A picture of an incarnation of him in Buggy’s crew was then later released in Volume 3 along with another picture of Buggy’s crew. Oda described Buggy’s crew as a family unit, in which Zoro was the elder brother.

  • Zoro has his own jolly roger, like all the Straw Hat crew. It has Zoro’s bandanna, two swords instead of crossbones, and a sword in its mouth (the white hilt suggests that it is Wado Ichimonji, which is always the one that Zoro holds in his mouth when using Santoryu).
    • After the timeskip, the skull gains Zoro’s three earrings and the left eye is closed with a vertical scar over it to match Zoro’s own eye. The swords that make up the crossbones are more detailed: the blade pointing towards the right is dark, suggesting that it is Shusui while the other is Sandai Kitetsu.

  • Zoro is the only member of the crew that Luffy personally sought out to invite before they actually met.
  • Zoro is the only Straw Hat Pirate to be named after a real life pirate, this being after the Japanese pronunciation of François l’Ollonais.

  • Zoro is the first known person since Ryuma to kill a dragon, an act which made the latter a legend. Both of them also killed the dragon the same way, by decapitation in the air.
  • Zoro’s reintroduction to the series after the timeskip is reminiscent of how Mihawk was introduced. Both sliced a galleon in two and both seemingly did so due to an interrupted nap.
  • In Japanese fan polls, Zoro was consistently the second most popular character, until his position was usurped by Law in this most recent poll. Furthermore, in the attack popularity polls his Santoryu Ogi: Sanzen Sekai came in 2nd.
  • Zoro usually fights the second strongest member of the villain group the Straw Hats face during the story arcs.
  • Zoro’s favorite foods are white rice, sea king meat, and anything that goes with ale. His least favorite food is chocolate. Other than taking naps, Zoro typically sleeps at 4:00 A.M. and gets up at 7:00 A.M and he bathes once a week.
  • Like Luffy, Zoro has a scar on his chest and a scar on his face.

Blackbeard’s Two Devil Fruits – Myth & Facts

ok

1.Myth: Blackbeard has a parasitic twin in his belly.

Fact: The reason Marco mentioned an “unusual body type” when speculating how Blackbeard was able to handle two Devil Fruits has yet to be explained.

2.Myth: A person can control only one Devil Fruit of each type, but are not limited to the number.

Fact: It was not clearly explained by Blueno when he said one’s body would destroy itself when one consumes two Devil Fruits. Due to the reactions of the pirates and Marines to Blackbeard’s power usage, this has been proven to be untrue.

3.Myth: Blackbeard will eventually consume a third Devil Fruit of the Zoan type since there are three types of fruits and three skulls on his flag.

Fact: While Blackbeard’s body allows him to control two Devil Fruits, the possibility of him controlling a third has yet to be confirmed since we do not even know why he can control two. It is stated that his crew is now tracking down powerful Devil Fruit users and stealing their abilities, but exactly how the stolen Devil Fruits are used is unrevealed.

4.Myth: Blackbeard has eaten the “Mythical Zoan Type: Cerberus” Devil Fruit, and because a Cerberus is a dog with three heads he’s able to consume two more Devil Fruits. The Cerberus also explains the three skulls in Blackbeard’s jolly roger, why Blackbeard carries three pistols, also how Shanks’ scar, which was given to him by Blackbeard, has three scratches on it, and why Zoro and Luffy referred to Blackbeard as “they” instead of “he” during the Jaya Arc.

Fact: First of all a fruit with such name has never been confirmed or even mentioned, second the reason Blackbeard has three skulls on his jolly roger has never been explained or given any significance, and third Oda has never confirmed any of the “evidence” given in this. Also, the fact Zoro and Luffy referred to him as “they” was that they most likely guessed Blackbeard and the other strange people they had seen were together. It is highly unlikely either Zoro or Luffy could have realized Blackbeard had such an ability, given that he shows no outward signs of any powers, like any other Devil Fruit user. And the reason of Shank’s scar having three scratches was most likely because of Blackbeard’s old weapon was similar to Kuro’s Cat Claws but only with three spike-like blades.

9 Things You Should Know About Tashigi

  • Tashigi’s character design has changed significantly during the series. In her first appearance, she looked like Kuina, but by the battle of Marineford, her design had become more distinct.

  • Tashigi was the second female Marine shown in the series, the retired and deceased Bell-mère being the first.
  • Along with Smoker, Tashigi has appeared in more sagas than any other characters outside the Straw Hat Pirates.
  • In One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, Tashigi’s taunt action allows her to remove or put on her glasses. When her glasses are off, the screen becomes blurry with a heavy depth of field effect.
  • In the 4th Japanese Fan Poll, Tashigi was ranked the 42nd most popular character in One Piece.
  • In the 5th Japanese Fan Poll, towards the end of the Dressrosa Arc, Tashigi dropped to 64th place, sharing the spot with Emporio Ivankov.
  • A fan once inquired about Tashigi’s glasses, as she seems nearsighted but lifts her glasses to look closely at a sword and was seen running without glasses. The reader asked if the glasses were for show. Oda stated that she does need them.
  • In Japan, the act of taking another’s sword is seen as a strong statement that implies the wielder was not worthy of the blade, and Tashigi is doing this by taking the blades from criminals.
  • So far, Yamaoroshi and Kashu are the only swords known to have been taken from their previous owners by Tashigi.
