THEORIES & OPINIONS

PURPOSE OF THE YONKO

e2cc023cd6e443618f45018ee048d0c9The Yonko are limited to sharing the New World. That is pretty much a fact since no territory outside of the New World belongs to any one of them. Know that they could easily get past the calm belt like Rayleigh (even Krieg did it with a bit of luck). Also, I bet they have the money and influence to buy seastone coated ships like the Marines have and get across that way. So why are they stuck sharing the New World, a tiny strip of the ocean that is unsafe and chaotic?

In addition, the WG seems to ignore their crimes. Marineford was about Ace, and not Whitebeard. If the WG wanted Whitebeard gone, they could have targeted any one of his crew members; Whitebeard would have come charging in regardless. But only Ace was worth the fight. It’s already been explained that it’s because of the Pirate King’s blood. Still… isn’t it interesting that the WG cared more about stopping Ace than a Yonko?

Look at Big Mom, Whole Cake Island is no secret. If the WG wanted, they could combine their forces and take her out at any time. Contrast that to the Revolutionaries that had to have their base hidden on a legendary island for fear of being attacked. I don’t believe that the Revolutionaries are any weaker than a Yonko, rather they are attempting something none of the Yonko have done. Take territory outside of the New World. The Yonko can get away with a lot, but not this one thing. They must be contained to the New World or risk starting a war with the government and having to find a legendary island to hide on.

So I got to thinking, why? Why are the Yonko given a, relative, free pass? Sure, if they combined forces they would be a gigantic threat, but individually they aren’t. My guess is that the WG wants them for something; they serve a purpose. When Whitebeard fell, the Gorosei had no interest in preventing the rise of another Yonko, but rather wondered who it would be that takes the title.

So let’s think logically for a second, what benefit does the Yonko system provide the WG? Deadlock. They are all deadlocked against each other, incapable of growing or moving anymore in such a small space. If one gets too strong, then the Marines can intervene and weaken them back to normal. If one of them attempts to take on the government directly or oversteps its bounds within the New World then its asking for war and we already saw the likely outcome at Marineford. Without Shanks stepping in, nearly everyone of those pirates, without a Sub like Law, would have been captured or found dead.

This deadlock serves a purpose, to prevent any one of them from reaching Raftel. Raftel, the Pirate King, Ace… The World Government formed 800 years ago with one purpose, to destroy the ancient kingdom. It then spent 800 years destroying its name and history. Its purpose was never to rule the world or to establish justice. Rather, those are simply fronts like the Marines are a front to the public as mentioned in the meeting between Akainu and the Gorosei. The Ancient Kingdom is the true enemy of the WG, not the Yonko or Pirates. The balance of powers is therefore not some mathematical equation to determine who is stronger but rather a careful balance implemented by the WG to prevent anybody from reaching Raftel.

As an example, think back to Shiki vs Roger. If Shiki were to have been apprehended then he never would have been able to attack Roger. Also, the Marines would have been weakened as a result. The WG cares more about stopping individuals from reaching Raftel than it does about preventing the crimes of a pirate like Shiki. This same concept can be applied to the Shichibukai. Their crimes are pardoned so as to prevent rookie pirates from advancing into the New World. Yonko are given a free pass so long as they stay within the New World facing off against each other.

KIZARU & HIS DEVIL FRUIT

Let’s begin with Kizaru’s devil fruit Pika Pika no Mi. The light fruit.1-2

What is light? Light is energy. We can have much light or few light, meaning it’s bright or it’s dark. In both cases we can see because there is light.

Well listen to this. Light is not just energy. According to recent studies, light changes substance from energy to wave and from wave to energy.

What can someone do if he is made of light?
Of course he can be a human lamp.

He can produce fire when focusing too much light in one spot. That’s how we have forest fires from pieces of glass.

He can blind his enemy using his light in such a way.

He can move at the speed of light(!!!)

Plot traps:

In Sabaody we saw Kizaru attacking Apoo. He didn’t just teleport ,but he sent a wave of light towards Apoo and when it reached him then in a split second he kicked him.
What we learn from that. Kizaru can’t just teleport anywhere but has to throw a wave of light coming from his df power to teleport anywhere he sends it.

Moreover, we saw Kizaru shooting beams.

In Marineford, in contrast with Sabaody, he could just teleport anywhere he wished.(?)

So how can a light fruit shoot beams?
By focusing too much light (energy) in one thin line.

Also, light can generate radioactive waves. For example, an atomic bomb can generate radioactive waves when exploding killing everything in a radius due to exposure.
The sun creates radioactive waves that can destroy whole planets. What saves us from this is the ozon. It’s also the reason we get sunburnt in the summer,but that is only the softest form of radioactive waves.

One more thing, Kizaru is lazy. He speaks slowly, moves slowly, doesn’t even dodge attacks (vs Marco). We all know Marco is strong but, come on you can move at the speed of light, there is literally NOTHING you can’t avoid.

This power is so hax, as people say , that Kizaru could even kill Whitebeard. Not even the strongest man is fast enough to dodge a sword at the speed of light piercing through his skull.
I repeat now myself that all of these happen in a plotless scenario.

What relates to the light fruit?

THE SUN. The world is full of light, it’s full of energy snacks for Kizaru.
Kizaru could use the light from the sun, from lamps, from fire and electricity etc for his own sake.

Could there be a limit?

Yes scenario:
His draining power Is limited and after a certain point he has major drawbacks in his health. After a certain point he dies.

No scenario:
He can drain so much energy that he could obliterate earth in one blast(like a Ultra huge el thor that creates a hole in earth). How? By draining energy from the sun.

What blocks the sun?

Black holes. Gravitational spheres. Blackbeard. He is the natural enemy of Kizaru. But there is more.

Mirrors, block the light.

When the dinosaurs went extinct they didn’t die because of the meteor, but because of the gas and smoke that hid the sun. Animals died because of gas, plants died because they were lacking light. After the meteor hit earth, the planet was covered with smoke and dust blocking the sunlight. Eternal grey.

The point of this?
In Ace vs Smoker we learned that they cancelled each others ability. Smoke comes from fire. Fire produces light. Smoke blocks light. Food for thought, because this is another subject.

There are tons of things and examples to give about what you can do with light.

Truth is that Kizaru is nerfed due to plot. I think there is no reason to justify this. I expect Oda to give us information about the limits of his power.

Haki and light fruit :
Negation of the light fruit can be done with busoshoku haki ofc. If hit with Color of Armament Haki the body is forced to solidity and takes the hit.
But, Color of Observation Haki is useless. A person at the speed of light can attack you with a million ways, and if you try to block, can change his attack a billion times. You can’t block him in hand to hand combat. You will get hit. Color of Observation Haki can be used against his beams. When Rayleigh fought Kizaru in Sabaody, they were casing swords in normal speed, for plot reasons, because if Rayleigh was attacked at light speed he wouldn’t be able to block, and he would die. Then Luffy would die(end of One Piece). This is what I mean plot reasons.

Countering Kizaru is synonymous to blocking his light. If he can’t use his light speed attacks, he is particularly weakened.

VIVI’S POTENTIAL RETURN TO THE CREW

Introduction:

This is likely a theory that has been brought up before, but I would like to stake my own case for Vivi’s potential return in the future. In the theory I will also state pros and cons of this occurring to explore both sides of the argument.Despedida_de_Vivi

So, to begin, I would like to state this: I do not think it is guaranteed, but I believe there is a chance for Vivi to return in the future. Why is this?

First of all story relevance. Most people always argue that a person cannot join the crew after rejecting the offer because the SHs will be too far ahead to ever catch up. Vivi has an advantage in this case. She is attending the Reverie and it is likely she will be our protagonist for the arc given our familiarity with the lovely woman in question. Most importantly however, this means she’ll be in the New World. Unlike the vast majority of potential Strawhats who missed the boat (so to speak), she has the capability to ‘catch-up’ to her friends.

My second reason is what could happen at the Reverie itself. Now take this part with a grain of salt – this is conjecture, but at least conjecture formed through logical thought. It is clear that this event will change the world in some regard. We have the kings and queens of nations around the world meeting up in one location to discuss important political matters.

Over the course of the story, the Strawhats have no exactly been the quietest of visitors to every land they stop by. Many a time the crew have impacted the entire lives of the populace, overthrowing oppressive regimes and foiling dastardly villainous plots. They have won the hearts and minds of many and have thus made the people question the concept of good and evil, of justice and immorality. Not all pirates are evil, so does that mean not all marines are good?

The heads of these countries are staunch allies of the SH crew. Dalton of Sakura, Cobra of Alabasta and Riku of Dressrosa, these three support the SH crew in silent and believe that what they do is not wrong. Furthermore, these very kings have tasted the bitter stench of the darker sides of the world government. It is not illogical to assume, given their grievances that they start asking questions that nobody should be even uttering. These individuals, righteous and just kings and rulers would speak up when they shouldn’t and cause a stir amongst the Reverie’s participants.

Let’s also consider an even greater threat to a specific royal family, the Alabasta royalty. Wapol is visiting the Reverie and he may be aware of Vivi’s own participation in the overthrowing of his tyrannical rule. It does not take a far-stretch of the imagination to assume he could pour fuel onto the fire of Cobra’s own words and get them arrested or killed.

This offers two possibilities: Vivi gets captured and eventually sentenced to death, or Vivi escapes as a fugitive and the SH pirates rescue their friend. I do not think she is immune to the former fate, but part of me wants to explore the latter.

Evidence and Speculation:

So, why would Vivi join the crew again? We need evidence, at least some. Fortunately, I have some non-conclusive evidence.

Take me with you is the name of the chapter and Vivi is on the cover staring out into the distance. In the background Carue is making a scrapbook.

We know dreams and living without regret is a very important theme in One Piece. We saw after the SHs departed, Vivi cried in her room when she realised the crew left and she had stayed behind. Part of her clearly regretted not going with her friends. The romance of adventure is something she clearly still seeks. It is not impossible to posit that Vivi still possesses wanderlust and desires to go back out to sea with her friends.

My next point revolves around Ace, Luffy’s departed brother. After Luffy’s message, she too construed the meaning, or at the very least understood there was symbolism behind the message of 3d2y. She keeps up with her old friend’s adventures, and this supports the idea that she has regrets or yearning for the sea.

Yet, there is more to the Ace point. I feel that seeing as she too met Ace, she has a special connection to the Sabaody group and Jimbei in that they all had a connection to the man who died for his younger brother.

We have established that there may be ‘regret’ and a ‘link’ for Vivi and the Strawhats. Never forget the promise. They will always be friends. She is nakama in their hearts, and they would clearly welcome her with open arms if they ever met again.

Time and time again, Vivi has expressed a faith in Luffy, even when separated, this is shown by her understanding of Nico Robin joining the crew. Luffy has a reason, and if he made the decision, it’s going to be a good one.

With this evidence, we must ask how it could come to be. Vivi still has Alabasta. Vivi still has her father. Sadly, chapters insinuate that Cobra does not have much longer to live. Furthermore, the events of the Reverie could throw their status into question. They may lose everything. Alabasta may get attacked for siding with pirates. Such an event would give the woman a dream. To save her country. She’d need to help of the future Pirate King. Through sailing with him she could accomplish this dream.

The above is of course conjecture, but it is not impossible. The theory gives credence to the notion that she could join the crew. I also think, given Vivi’s comment of ‘not needing suitors’, that she too has had thoughts of leaving. (Or it could mean she has a husband to be in mind).

Nonetheless, the opportunity is there. I believe the Reverie is the very last chance for a Vivi comeback.

Now, what discredits this theory?

Strength is the first issue. She is far behind the crew in terms of combat ability. However, there have been theories floating around for a long time regarding that Yuki Yuki no Mi. Whilst this is an off-shoot chance, a logia could give her the base level requirement of the New World, it would also give us the opportunity to see somebody use a logia on the crew. A devil fruit in general would greatly help her in terms of combat ability. Yet, without this, it is painfully clear that she is too weak for the SH crew.

What role would she fulfil? I believe she could be a mediator. Her high breeding and royal status has given her an ambassadorial air to her which would enable sound negotiations for the crew.

Would she be okay with Robin? Personally I think she would. She has shown faith in Luffy’s decisions.

She refused the invitation! However they will always be friends, and that opens the door for a potential return.

Her country simply wouldn’t allow it. This is true, but at the end of the day, choosing your own path is a focal point of One Piece and her choosing to be with her friends would support the story’s theme.

Conclusion:

In conclusion I believe there is room for argument that Vivi could rejoin the crew. She is close geographically, there may be a motive, she has regrets (something One Piece advocates against) and she has already sailed with the crew. They love her, and she loves them back.

There are clear problems with the theory, and I believe I have adequately mentioned them and argued against them to the best of my ability.

At the end of the day, my belief isn’t that she will join again but that there is a possibility. Nothing is absolute. I am merely arguing for the chance of this occurring.

Whatever happens, I believe Vivi will be in the final battle on Luffy’s side, but will that be as a nakama or a supporter? Only time will tell!

A PROMISE BETWEEN FRIENDS – LUFFY PLANS TO MEET THEM AGAIN

Luffy has had his fair share of separations over the course of his adventures. On every single island or country he’s visited, Luffy has made friends, enemies, and the occasional enemy-turned-friend, and in many of those cases, said friends have promised to meet up with Luffy again somewhere down the line in his quest.

One of the most prominent examples of this is Jinbe, whom Luffy invited to join his crew at the end of the Fishman Island arc, only for Jinbe to decline.1-3

Despite his refusal, Jinbe still promised to rejoin Luffy at a later time, maintaining the close ties of friendship they had forged along the way.

Where we are now in the story, Jinbe has all but officially joined the Straw Hats, so for all intents and purposes most people consider him a Straw Hat already. I believe that the delay between Jinbe’s invitation and his acceptance of joining the crew set a bit of a precedent for the remainder of the recruits for this sea: all of them will either have a delay period between invitation and acceptance or they will all be people Luffy has met in earlier seas whom he has promised to meet again in the New World.

If the former is the case, then the potential recruits may well be people we haven’t met yet. If it’s the latter, however, I have compiled a quick list of possible candidates that match all of the criteria of being on friendly terms with Luffy and promising to meet him again.

For the sake of maintaining a sense of momentum, I’ll start from my weakest candidate and move on up from there. Fortunately for me, the presence of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet gives me a bit of a back-up plan for most of these if I’m wrong about them joining the crew proper.

Our first candidate is Lola, who Luffy and the crew met back in Thriller Bark. After saving Lola and hers from Gecko Moria, the Straw Hats form a close bond with them and promise to meet up with them again one day.

I don’t find Lola a particularly viable option for joining the Straw Hats proper, as a) she is the captain of her own crew who she likely wouldn’t want to leave, b) her promise to meet again isn’t presented with much gravitas and thus doesn’t seem like it’s meant to foreshadow a dramatic reunion, and c) her adventure is taking her in the complete opposite direction, so it’s unlikely that they’ll meet in circumstances that would facilitate her joining. Instead, she may be likely to become a member of the Straw Hat Grand Fleet, or may even serve as foreshadowing of Pudding joining the crew/Grand Fleet. Still, this is pretty flimsy conjecture, hence she is my first example.

Second is Gin of the Krieg Pirates, fought all the way back on the Baratie in East Blue. After Luffy defeated Don Krieg, his attitude rubbed off on Gin and gave him a new lease on life. As Gin forces Krieg to retreat, he leaves Sanji with a message for Luffy: to meet again on the Grand Line.
Gin is also a fairly weak example, as Gin’s character is more heavily focused on his relationship with Sanji than with Luffy, and also the distinct possibility that he died within a day of saying this. Still, that one’s a much stronger promise than the one with Lola, as it was given very specific focus and clearly is meant to build to something later on. I don’t really see Gin joining the crew, but I definitely could see him being an ally, possibly even becoming a Fleet Commander. It’s not too much of a stretch to imagine that he’s been improving over the years, and he’s probably about on par with the rest of Luffy’s Commanders by now. Either way, his involvement in the Baratie arc doesn’t really give the impression that he’s Straw Hat material.

Third is Shirahoshi, the princess of Fishman Island who was imprisoned in her own palace for protection until Luffy won her freedom into the outside world. As Luffy departs from Fishman Island, Shirahoshi asks him to return and show her even more of the world.

This scene is given the kind of attention that just screams foreshadowing, so we can say pretty definitively that Luffy and Shirahoshi are going to meet again, and even the promise itself, to take her above the waves, would be fulfilled quite nicely with her on the crew proper. However, Shirahoshi is no fighter, and while her ability as Poseidon to control the Sea Kings is incredibly powerful, its use is also rather limited to the sea. I have no doubt that Luffy will need Shirahoshi’s power somewhere along the way to finding One Piece, but probably not as a pirate. Still, if she were to join, her role on the crew seems pretty clear; controlling the Sea Kings to act as guides.

Fourth is Boa Hancock, the Pirate Empress who is infatuated with Luffy. After Luffy spent two years training on Rusukaina, Hancock delivers him to Sabaody Archipelago to meet back up with his crew. As they depart, Hancock asks Luffy not to say “farewell,” and Luffy replies that he has every intention on seeing her again.

Again, the scene isn’t made a huge spectacle of, and it isn’t even totally clear who is saying “we will meet again.” It’s a pretty safe bet to say that it’s Hancock, who would definitely serve as a powerful addition to the Straw Hats, but the way it’s framed it seems more like it’s saying that Luffy will meet the Kuja Pirates as a whole again. Also, as I said with Lola, Hancock has her own crew, and more than that, she has her own kingdom to take care of. Sure, she could name someone as her successor and leave, but she doesn’t seem likely to do that given her pride and skill as a leader. She seems much more likely to become a Fleet Commander, and this scene may also serve as foreshadowing for another Kuja joining (possibly Marguerite).

Fifth is Bentham, or Mr. 2 Bon Clay, Luffy’s enemy-turned-friend who has sacrificed himself to help Luffy escape danger twice now, and seems fairly likely to do so again. The second time, at Impel Down, he seemed confident that his life was going to end, and swore to see Luffy again in the afterlife.6-3

Of course, Bentham did not die, so his promise for a reunion will need to be fulfilled on Earth, not Heaven. Being a close friend to Luffy with no current affiliations with any other crews, Bentham seems like a fairly strong candidate for a new crewmate. The only problem is that he uses a mostly kick-based fighting style, making him a bit too similar to Sanji. Still, if the crew can have two swordsmen with possibly more to come, there shouldn’t be too much of an issue with having multiple kick-fighters.

Not only that, Bentham has even demonstrated in the past that he could take on the role of either a guard for the ship or a decoy as he has already done multiple times. And again, even if he doesn’t join because he’s too similar to Sanji, there’s absolutely nothing preventing him from forming a new crew and becoming a Fleet Commander.

The main problem with Bentham is that while his scene got more than enough attention, he didn’t make a promise with Luffy directly, and as far as Luffy knows Bentham is dead. Still, I don’t see Oda allowing Luffy to think that forever, so I have no doubt that no matter what comes of it, a reunion is just about guaranteed.

This brings us to our sixth and strongest candidate (whom you all likely saw coming), Vivi, princess of Alabasta and former temporary Straw Hat member. After Luffy saved Alabasta, he invited Vivi to join his crew (much he did with Jinbe), only for her to refuse due to personal matters (much like Jinbe did), and then ask to remain their friend should they ever meet again (also much like Jinbe did).

Unlike everyone else on this list with vague similarities to Jinbe’s recruitment, Vivi followed the formula almost to a T; fighting alongside Luffy, being invited, declining, and asking to meet again.

Vivi has also demonstrated her value as a crewmate, serving as a negotiator on at least one occasion, convincing Luffy to let her reason with the people of Drum Island to get a doctor for Nami.

Vivi already has a strong personal connection with Luffy, much like Jinbe did, having earned his trust enough to be able to sway his decisions at critical moments. If she decided she wanted to come back, Luffy wouldn’t even miss a beat and would say that she’s always been a member of the crew. In fact, as many of you know, Vivi is already considered the unofficial Straw Hat 5.5 by Oda, so if circumstances allow it, I see no issue with him allowing to become the official Straw Hat 11.

WHY DOES JUDGE HATE SANJI SO MUCH?

The denial of a rare power.

So as the heading suggests we will look into Judge’s hate towards Sanji and try to find a possible reason behind it.

What does Judge want most?
What we see from Sanji’s backstory and the current WCI ark we can recognize that Judge desires power most of anything – the power to rule over North blue.
So basically after Sanji did not develop any super human strengths he denied him the chance of a power increase. However, I think there is more to it.

But lets first start in a logical order that I think will be the easiest way to convince you in this theory.

So lets look of the Judge’s work. He is a scientist and from what we have seen about cloning and applying modifications he seems to be genetic engineer.
Quote from Wiki:
Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, is the direct manipulation of an organism’s genome using biotechnology. It is a set of technologies used to change the genetic makeup of cells, including the transfer of genes within and across species boundaries to produce improved or novel organisms”

So in an experiment or research the engineer would pick two or more species and try to combine specific characteristics in one of the organisms. That would suggest that the engineer has in mind a clear picture or expectations on what the result should be.
So knowing that, it can be easily deducted that Judge had some specimens/objects in mind that he wants to combine and in that relation he should have pretty clear expectations on the results.

Taking the Vinsmoke siblings as an example they all seem to have two common features – hard exoskeleton and super strength – plus a specific unique characteristic for each of them.
These unique characteristics seems to be the base for their nick names related with colors:

  • Poison Pink
  • Sparkling Red
  • Electric Blue
  • Winch Green

So what I am trying to say is that Vinsmoke Judge knew what to expect from his kids since he knew what species he had crossed, BUT he didnt know who will develop each specification.

So after the kids were born and they started to show signs of their powers by the method of elimination Judge knew for sure which specific power is missing.

Having anticipated all the powers Judge probably had a power that he was looking forward to most. So is it possible that Sanji actually was the embryon which was supposed to have this mostly anticipated power?

Even after his researchers have told Judge that Sanji is nothing but human he seems like desperately mad of that fact. Even though he is a man of science he still goes to confront Sanji and scream at him that it is not an option for him to be a failure.

(Chapter 840)
2-4

After that when Judge had no option but to accept the reality provided by the data he went to such a length to even get a tear in his eye when the confirmation was endeviable.

3-2

The only other time when we saw Judge cry was when BM pirates were about to execute Vinsmokes and Judge realizing that his dream of ruling over North Blue is coming to an end.
Could this mean that Sanji failure was some what the end of one of Judges dreams to see that specific combination of powers that is missing from the list??? Could have this been the most promising combination that Judge was looking for???

Conclusion
So in my opinion Judge does not only hate Sanji because of his lack of superhuman trends but mostly because he denied him the specific power that Judge was looking forward to the most!

Speculation
And here it comes a bit of speculations :D

Funny enough all the Vinsmoke kids were given a color as a representation at some point of time probably by Judge. Even though Sanji was far away from that situation he ended up having a color in his name as well. Having in mind that Judge have connections in the government and he can manipulate wanted posters (switching Sanji’s poster to only alive) could he have a role in that name? The possibility is really low but it is interesting possibility :D

Anyway my point is that somehow Sanji got a color in his name and comparing the names of his siblings it looks like Sanji is missing an adjective for his color. Lets see what can we deduct.

So thinking about the statements from above that Judge could have been looking forward to this combination, the specific unique characteristic must be something rare.
Combining that it must be something rare and the constant comparison of Sanji being a demon, could his undeveloped powers be a related to a Demon?
So if I have to come up with a adjective for Sanji’s black color I can definitely see him as a “Demonic Black

RYOKUGYU (GREEN BULL), THE LAST ADMIRAL

In this theory i’ll be explaining my thoughts on Green Bull who is yet to make a proper appareance in One Piece. Before i start with Green Bull i’ll have to go to the old admirals first and explain my thoughts on them. Because of this the theory is going to be abit longer then i wanted but i think its crucial to my ideas on Green Bull which is why i kept it in. Don’t let the lenght scare you away though because i believe its an enjoyable read which hopefully wont leave you as confused as luffy.

[IMG]

First the Admirals before the timeskip.

[IMG]

Lets start with Aokiji, who we meet the first time at Long-Long Island. His name translates to Blue Pheasant and he has the ice-ice fruit.

The next admiral we meet is Kizaru, who we meet at Shabondy Archipelago. His name translates to Yellow Monkey and he has the light-light fruit.

The last admiral we meet pre-timeskip is Akainu, who we meet at the Marineford war. His name translates to Red Dog and he has the magma-magma fruit.

[IMG]

Now i believe the names have an extra meaning. Lets start again with Aokiji (Blue Pheasant).

[IMG]

Blue is a link to his power, the ice ice fruit, but it can also be a link to the blue sea (pirates). Aokiji was the only admiral pre-timeskip who fought with the strawhats because they were pirates (as main reason). It is hidden abit by the fact he wanted to deal with Nico Robin and later Spandam using his golden den-den-mushi to trigger the buster call. The Nico Robin factor was for Aokiji something from the past. He had tried to let her escape in Ohara but she was spotted and got the bounty on her head at an early age. After twenty years on the run he thought she just wanted to die so he decided to put everything about Ohara to an end. The whole enies lobby thing was mainly CP9 and not Aokiji. Later he’s on Garp’s ship when Garp attacks the Strawhats when they leave Water Seven and he helps confirm that they escaped.

Now next is Kizaru (Yellow Monkey).

[IMG]

Yellow can be linked to the heavens (Celestial Dragons). When Luffy punched a Celestial Dragon it was Kizaru who volunteered to go deal with him and the other pirates at the human shop.

[IMG]

This was his main reason to go after them. When he meets Luffy again in the Marineford war he tells him that the Celestial Dragons have been clamoring for Luffy’s arrest.

[IMG]

Last is Akainu (Red Dog). Red can be linked to the Red Line (Revolutionaries). Squardo reveals after he stabbed Whitebeard that Akainu is a member of the rebel faction.[IMG]
I believe this is the faction of the Marines that deal with the Revolutionaries. This is further hinted at him (Akainu) knowing about the relation between Dragon and Luffy before its announced in the war.

[IMG]

This is also his main reason for going after Luffy.

Some small notes about the animal parts.
– Pheasants are groundliving birds like for example chickens. This could link at Aokiji traveling by bike.
– Monkeys live in groups. This could link to how Kizaru works together with his nephew: Sentomaru.
– Dogs are very loyal. This could link to how Akainu places Justice above all. He’s loyal to the values the Marines stand for.

Now the admirals after the timeskip.

[IMG]

Now after the timeskip Akainu became fleet admiral, Aokiji left and 2 new admirals were drafted Fujitora (Purple Tiger) and Ryokugyu (Green Bull). We meet Fujitora (Purple Tiger) for the first time in Dressrosa.

[IMG]

From the way he is dressed we could speculate that he is from Wano Kuni. This gives more meaning to what Doflamingo said about the ‘World Military Draft’.

[IMG]

Brook explained that Wano Kuni isn’t affiliated with the world government and that their samurai swordsmen are so strong that not even the Marines go near there.

[IMG]

So it is abit strange to see an Admiral come from there. Fujitora (Purple Tiger) explained that he wants to abolish the Royal Warlod system which is most likely his reason for joining the Marines in the first place. The World Military Draft gave him the opportunity to not only join the Marines but also to become an Admiral. This gives him influence in the Marines and also the Reverie with which he can strive to his goal (abolishment of the Royal Warlord system).

Now if we apply the previous format to his name (Purple Tiger) then Purple can link to countries not affiliated with the World Goverment. Also Tigers are solitary but social creatures. This means that they hunt alone but can sleep in the same location as others from their species (Well males usually avoid each other but a male can have an overlapping territory with a female). This could link to how Fujitora does his own thing, even if that means disobeying orders.

Its been quite a long theory already but now we get to the part of Ryokugyu (Green Bull). We dont know wether Ryokugyu (Green Bull) is male or female so for this part i will adress him/her as he/him. Lets use the same format again (seperating the names) and start with the ‘Green’ part. I’ve seen a couple of theories that link his power to either trees (nature), radio-activity or time manipulation. But when i think of the colour green i think of healing (mainly because off all the hours i spent playing Pokemon when i was a kid). Because of this i believe his function before becoming an Admiral was a doctor, probably a Marine one. We know that the Marines have a Medical Centre.

[IMG]

If we take it that this is the case we can also speculate about his home country which would be most likely Drum Kingdom. Drum Kingdom was formerly renowned for its doctors and medical knowledge but when Wapol became king he made that law which only allowed the 20 doctors in the palace to stay.

[IMG]

All the other doctors were exiled from the country. There are some hints that could link Green Bull to Drum Kingdom such as Dalton having the cow-cow fruit model Bison

[IMG]

and also Dr.Kureha has been shown wearing a shirt with a bull on it.

[IMG]

If we continue with the format then next is the ‘Bull’ part. The most common known thing about bulls is that they go mental when they see the colour red. This could link to Ryokugyu (Green Bull) having a berserker ability where he looses control over himself and devestates everything close by.

I want to link this to Chopper and his Monster point. Chopper studied under Dr.Kureha and invented the rumble balls. When he took three of these he lost control over his devil fruit and went on a rampage abit like a berserker. This could prove an important hint. How exactly did Chopper invent those Rumble Balls? He could have made them from scratch ofcourse but if we take it that Green Bull came from Drum Kingdom then he could have also used previous research that already existed and made the Rumble Balls from that research. If for example Green Bull was afraid of his own power and the fact he looses his mind whenever it activates then he could have tried researching a way to stop this berserk ability.

With the new admirals (Kizaru, Fujitora and Ryokugyu) we no longer have the logia theme which the old admirals had. Fujitora is a paramecia (since Blackbeard has the gravity logia) so its likely that Ryokugyu is a zoan. I believe he researched the Zoan fruit to explore the posibilities of stopping the berserk effect and left the research behind when he was exiled from Drum Kingdom (gave the research to Dr.Kureha most likely). Later Chopper found that research and made the Rumble Balls. After his exile Ryokugyu, still afraid of his power, joined the Marines hoping that if he could not be cured they atleast could keep him in check. With the ‘World Military Draft’ Akainu forced him to become an Admiral because even if he looses control with his ability he is still insanely powerful.

Now i have saved the best for last and that is his devil fruit. If Chopper used his research for the rumble balls then it is likely they have a similar kind of Zoan devil fruit and that is the human-human fruit. I believe Ryokugyu (Green Bull) has the human-human fruit model: Monster/Berserker/Hulk.

[IMG]

With it he transforms into a monstrosity with insane physical abilities but he also looses control of his mind (like the real hulk). As an Admiral i believe he orders all his troops as far away from him before he activates his devil fruit (this would give some cool panels). The drawback from this might be that he can’t use Haki while in berserker mode which would make him useless against logia but still insanely effective against paramecia and zoans.

[IMG]

Conclusion:
– Admiral names could hide hints to their affiliation and powers.
– Green Bull was a doctor from Drum Kingdom and later for the Marines.
– He has the human-human fruit model: Monster/Beserker/Hulk (one of these most likely)
– His fruit brings him into a berserker rage where he looses his mind, afraid of this ability he wanted to cure himself so did alot of research on the human-human fruit (later gave this research to Dr.Kureha upon his exile).
– Chopper used this research to make the Rumble Balls.

THE RAFTEL MAP

I’m sure everyone is familiar with the ongoing trend of OP characters giving us false explanations for in-universe events that they think they understand but don’t, with Oda leaving us on the assumption that Vegapunk will explain it properly. I believe this is the case for the explanation of Reverse Mountain too. Now, Nami’s explanation is surely a contributing factor to why water flows up the mountain but there is another effect at play

I believe that One Piece’s moon is in fact in geostationary orbit, exhibiting it’s entire gravitational force over a single point. Reverse mountain. This is the biggest contributing factor in the phenomenon of upward flowing water, and also explains why the rest of the world isn’t affected by regular tidal forces

But why is this relevant? First we’re gonna need some locations for the map points

[IMG]

Aside from excellent foreshadowing on the part of Oda this flag is also a vital clue. The World Government are aware of the road poneglyphs and Raftel, but are unable to reach it. The fact that they have been unable to reach it, even long before the beginning of the great pirate era and the rise of the Yonkou suggests that the poneglyphs were given to their enemies. So they likely also point to the nations of their enemies

One poneglyph on Zou, an independent nation isolated from humans. One in possession of Kaido, likely found in Wano, who are still independent of the World Government. Many have speculated that the unknown poneglyph is from Elbaf but I believe the Elbaf poneglyph is the one owned by Big Mom. The final poneglyph rests on the moon, and will be brought back by Eneru

Now let’s complete the map. But first, take a look at this

AuML130

One thing is evident from this picture. There are many island combinations that take 2 from each half of the grand line or one from each of the 4 blues which lead to reverse mountain being the intersection point. Reverse mountain is commonly theorised to be the location of Raftel. Statistically speaking, it’s the location at the end of the grand line which is most likely to be the solution on a 2D map. But surely this makes it too easy? The solution can’t be something so simple as to be reached by anyone with a bit of basic logic?

And so we return to the moon. Instead of thinking of the map in 2 dimensions, try thinking of it in 3, with the moon as one of the points. Now lets take 2 nations from opposite sides of the grand line. Alabasta, who whilst being members of the World Government were likely allies of the AK given their refusal to move to Mariejois and ownership of a poneglyph, and either Wano or Baltigo, as both are likely roughly the right distance into the New World for this to work and aren’t WG islands. And finally, the reason for the theory of the geostationary moon, the final point is Fishman Island. Connect the dots in 3 dimensions on a globe. The line between Alabasta and Wano/ Baltigo cuts through the globe, meeting the line between the moon and Fishman Island at a point just beneath reverse mountain

Raftel is likely deep under water or underground, in what is essentially the exact opposite position to Fishman Island which rests 10,000 meters below sea level beneath Mariejois on the opposite side of the world.

POSSIBLE FORESHADOW OF STRAW HATS STEALING PONEGLYPH FROM KAIDO

We all know that you can just steal a paper from people who wrote down what’s on poneglyphs, but what does Luffy think about it?
[​IMG] He is not happy with that, given that he showed us his Donald Trump face.
So, how can they steal poneglyphs? Can they just carry them? Well, I think there are 2 images that foreshadow this.
First one:
[​IMG]
Wadatsumi is carrying a Poneglyph on his head.

Second one:

Look at the pattern on Luffy’s clothes – the Kozuki clan.

But what kind of significance does the clothing bring, you may ask
Well, try to remember who from Kozuki clan ate a very strange fruit, and since the day he ate that fruit, he could turn objects that are put on head into clothes.
Still doesn’t ring a bell?
This guy:
[​IMG]

They have a foolproof plan – they steal poneglyphs by literally wearing them, and then Kanjuro, with Usopp’s help, draws a new Poneglyph where the old one was so no one can suspect a thing! I think it’s a perfect scheme.

Law And The Voice Of All Things

After last chapters, many people in OP community started speculating that the fact Momonosuke is hearing a voice makes him somewhat related to the ability of hearing Voice of All Things!

Most likely, the main hint is this panel, that may be a reference to Roger, the one we know for sure that had this ability:
İmage

Actually, way ago (December 21, 2015), I’ve done a theory video in my channel exposing my ideas that Inuarashi and Nekomamushi knew Gol D. Roger, that we would have a Poneglyph in Zou and that most likely Roger was able to “hear” it.

Seems like, maybe, some of my ideas can be proven right in the near future. If not, well, by the time it was a good theory xD, haha.

Anyway, one think that REALLY caught my attention and people aren’t commenting is Law’s expression while climbing the tree.

İmage

Why is he so uneasy? So unconfortable? And why did Oda (which clearly is trying to faster the story’s pace) make sure he showed Law’s expression to us?

Also, inside the tree, while everybody’s freaking out with Raizou, Law is still uneasy. It can be due to the awkward situation, but maybe not. Also, we can’t asure he’s looking at Raizo instead of the Poneglyph, which is supposed to be from where the “voice” comes

İmage

Anyway, if Law can “hear” the the Voice of All Things too, it open possibilities:

– Gol D Roger
– Monkey D Luffy
– Trafalgar D Water Law

So…. does it means that this ability is related to the D clan?
Anyway, Luffy never heard a Poneglyph (although he seems to have the ability to hear the Voice of All Things). Is this ability something that you awaken somehow or train, something like that?

Second interesting topic: does this mean that Momonosuke (and the rest of the Kougetsu/Kouzuki family) is a D???

Well… guess we’ll learn a little more about it all by the chapter that’s coming tomorrow.

Thanks for reading

ZORO AND LAW “THE BADASS DUO” VS JACK INCOMING

After the recent chapter, many people believe that we will propably have a Jack vs Strawhats showdown and i am one of them!

But, i still believe it’s gonna be a seperation between the strawhats!

Luffy will take few people with him(I believe except for Pekoms, Raizou will join him as well) and Zoro with Law will prepare for the trip to Wano!

However, there is a small obstacle… none other that Jack himself…! and i will explain why…

We know that he went on a rescue mission to save Doflamingo from getting imprison!

In addition, we know he is heading to Impel Down!

Now, let’s look the map…

As you can see,Impel Down is on the west while the strawhats are in the opposite direction(east/Zou).

We know that Jack , managed to attack the marines before reaching Impel Down!

Also, we know that he left the island the same day Doflamingo was defeated!That was 11 days ago…! And base on chapter 807(ten days ago) half of the strawhats reached Zou!

So, if i have to take a guess… the distance at that time(It’s a moving island) between Dressrosa and Zou was approximately 1-2 days at most!(read chapter 807 , it will help you understand how many days has passed since entering the NW!Base on my calculations they are 14-15 days)

Taken into consideration the analysis i just made, it’s highly possible that he managed to catch up with the navy really quick!

If we also take into the account that the navy left Dressrosa the third day after the battle…!2

It is beautifully adds up!

In my opinion, Jack managed to catch up around here!

In the proccess managed to sink two ships, but sustained some injuries and considered dead…

However,he failed to retrieve doflamingo and base on the last chapter, he is alive and by the looks of it, he is been accompanied by a large fleet!

So, guys let’s refresh our memory!

What was his initial mission?
To retrieve Raizou!
And where he is now?
He is on Zou!
So, what he is going to do?
He is going to complete, his unfinished mission!

I think it’s a pretty logical way of thinking , don’t you think?

Even if he wants to go somewhere else, he has to pass to Zou…!

I think it’s very unlikely to move on , straight to Big Mom’s tea party… I doubt he even knows anything about it…

Also, take note that the battle between him and the navy occured around 8 days ago(11-3=8…xD)!

He had 8 whole days to rest,to heal,to prepair(fleet)and to travel back on Zou to put an end to his unfinished business!

So, he must be pretty close to Zou!

That means a SHOWDOWN!I can feel the hype!:)

In my opinion, since there is the Sanji matter on one hand and the Jack matter on the other , they will have no choice but to split!

But why split and not go all together to save Sanji?

1.Luffy said he will go alone, although i doubt he will be completely alone… he will take at least two![Pekoms and Raizou(stealth)… they will sneak!]

2.I think it was foreshadowed that, it’s going to be a match between Zoro vs Jack!
a)They both are the right hand man of their captains!
b)They both use swords as weapons
c)When the minks were talking about Jack, Oda focused on Zoro twice for a reason!c011

3.There is no way Zoro, will go after Sanji after making that speech1

4.The strawhats befriended the minks and i don’t think they will leave them at their fate…Luffy will entrust Zoro with the mission to protect them any way he can!I believe Law will stay too, since his good friend Bepo is from Zou!Let’s not forget they are still many of them injured

5.Lastly… maybe one of the biggest mysteries… the moon!
We have yet to be relieved , what happens when the full moon is out!

I think i gave you some solid points!

To move on with the last part of my theory!

The last part of this theory will be a speculation, but if you think about it , it will might make some sense!

I think in this fight we will have a Law and Zoro vs Jack battle, like we had the Law and Luffy combination against Doflamingo!
So, this combination could be turn out to be true!

Also, they are similar in personalities…both badass,cool,serious and bloodthirsty when they fight!

In my opinion, this duo will be amazing!

To conclude, i think we will have a big revelation regarding Zoro’s past from the moment he will release his demonic spirit!
Yes, i think this will be the fight that we will see him go all out!

This will be the moment when Zoro will trully connect to Wano and it will ignite his desire to go to Wano even more and learn about his past and lineage!

I don’t know how the fight will turn out… but i believe , during this fight Jack will tell him about his demonic/cursed clan or lineage and to how he might connect to one of his future enemies!

I hope you enjoyed my theory
