Hello everyone! I’m here today with a theory on Blackbeard’s Body Structure, his DF and so on and so forth. Let’s get started!
- The first point I would like to start off with is of Blackbeard as a kid, it might be far fetched but here goes. I think Teach might have suffered from a mental disorder, basically split personalities which confused him at a young age since he couldn’t comprehend it and left him depressed as we see above. He might have been born with split personalities or may have retained it through severe trauma as a child. This could also explain why he can wield 2 or more DF’s. His split personality counts as multiple people which acts as a loophole for being able to use more than 1 DF. He may switch to his other personality to use the Gura Gura No Mi, and go back to original mindset when using the Yami Yami No Mi.
- Another character I’d like to mention is Shinobu Sensui from Yu Yu Hakusho. His mental disorder is later mentioned later on but basically he has 7 split personalities with different abilities. His Red personality in general is the more aggressive one and he forms a machine gun of some sort around his hand when this personality takes over. How does this relate to Blackbeard you might ask? Well what if he uses 2 DF in a way similar to how Sensui gains alternate skills with each personality. Lets say Blackbeard’s main personality wields the Yami Yami No Mi and on the other hand, one of his split personalities is counted as another person in whole and controls the Gura Gura No Mi. In accord to his body structure, this might also explain why he can take hits so well and has different reactions to pain on certain occasions. For example lets say one personality when getting attacked tanks the hit and doesn’t think much of it. While another one of his personalities overreacts when hit and flails around for a slight moment.
- Now this next point is for the people who are skeptical on my second point of how one personality holds the Yami & the other wields the Gura. Maybe Blackbeard learned how to control his multi personalities in a way similar to Sensui? Sensui could communicate with his other personalities without them taking over at any point in time unless the main personality gave the others his approval. Maybe Blackbeard can switch between personalities at will or keep a certain level of balance/synchronization between the 2 to dual wield both of them at once in certain instances?
- Another theory is solely based on the Yami Yami No Mi alone and the nature of black holes in general. We know that Black Holes absorb matter, even light particles can’t escape dark matter. What if instead of Blackbeard eating the Gura Gura No Mi after taking it out of Whitebeard’s body, the Yami Yami No Mi absorbed it and was still somehow able to fully use it’s powers but as a trade off he can only use it with his left hand and can no longer use the Yami Yami No Mi in that hand. We know the Yami nullifies the abilities of all DF’s, it would make sense that it can nullify it to a point where it wouldn’t be a threat on the body of the wielder if they have already eaten a DF but can still take control of it’s powers to a certain extent.
I don’t know how Luffy & Zoro were able to detect that, I hope we get a flashback on this when the time comes for more BB in the future.
Then we have BB’s Jolly Roger with 3 skulls on it, in my opinion this foreshadows his multiple personalities along with his plan to get a 3rd DF in the future.
That’s the end of my theory, I hope you enjoyed it since it’s my first!
