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.

A THEORY ABOUT SANJI’S SOLO ARC, BIG MOM, PUDDING AND BONNEY

In this theory I will be discussing the possible events of Sanji’s solo arc, the whole deal with Big Mom and these weird thing called “Tea Party”
So first, let’s start with this line:

[​IMG]

And this one too:

[​IMG]

If you guys, noticed, Akainu and Brook both mentioned they had “a chill run down their spine”, i’ll just be straightforward about it.

I believe Akainu is referring to Bonney being Big Mom’s daughter. (Akainu have no idea about the wedding) and this indicates that Bonney seemed to have already been caught by the Marines before.

While Brook was referring to his familiarity to the Vinsmoke Family, a famous Mafia group.

And this Vinsmoke Family, I believe is led by the blonde guy, from the Gorosei.

Remember that Brook is around 90 years old, so this means that whoever this Vinsmoke is should be around for quite a few decades in power.

Which by logical assumption is the Gorosei.

And both of them (Sanji and Bonney), had been wanted all along by both the World Government and the Charlotte Family for one and one thing only.

A Marriage.
[​IMG]

Sanji and Bonney are “supposed” to be wed by the Vinsmoke and Charlotte Family, it’s the reason why Bonney currently hiding right now.
[​IMG]

So reason why I said “supposedly” is because right now, Bonney is not gonna marry Sanji, but the 35th daughter of Big Mom.

Pudding, which I suppose is this girl.
[​IMG]

It’s probably safe to assume that Big Mom’s “daughters” aren’t biological. come on.

Well, I assume the “Mafia” identity of the Gorosei is most probably a secret to marines, so they wouldn’t know it, I believe this marriage would start a “secret” alliance between the Charlotte Family and the Gorosei.

As I said before in my previous theories, I said that Kaido is actually “secretly” affiliated with the World Government as well, and I think the Gorosei are trying to do the same thing with Big Mom.

The World Government using Doflamingo and Caesar to ally with Kaido, while they are using “Marriage” to ally with Big Mom.

I’ll just stop here coz this is not my main theory.

==========

Anyway, I’ll assume that Bonney probably ran away from Big Mom after she was forced to marry someone (probably a Tenryuubito) because it’s Ace’s “D” (if you know what I mean) who Bonney really likes to get.

So after Bonney ran away, Pudding was next in line.

Now some backstory speculation, the Mafia Gorosei impregnated a woman in North Blue (Roger did that, so its open season) and of course their son turned out to be Sanji.

In order to keep them separated (because he is a douchebag who dont care about having a son) the Mafia Gorosei sent Sanji to East Blue , while her mom stayed in Marijoies (or North Blue)

Obviously by crossing over Red Line, a feat only someone like a resident of Marijoies could perform.

[​IMG]

Probably Capone just joined Big Mom Pirates in order to find Sanji because he is actually either a subordinate or an ally group of the Vinsmoke Family.

Personally, I believe Capone and Crocodile are the real partners and Capone is just tasked in finding Sanji and Crocodile in finding Bonney.

Of course i’m inclined to think that them two got their own Mafia Group apart from Vinsmokes.

=========

Alright, so let’s now discuss what I think would happen in Sanji’s Arc. (Assuming he gets one)

Firstly, I dont believe Sanji would get saved by the Strawhats (that’s so Robin) and secondly, Luffy and Zoro already expressed their full trust in Sanji.

[​IMG]

What I think would happen, is that these 2 arcs (Sanji’s Arc and Zou Arc) would be told interchangeably at the same time, in which both parties would lead to Wano-Kuni Arc.

And ultimately to the fall of Kaido.

There’s no doubt in my mind now that Big Mom’s pirate crew, will end up being an ally of the Strawhat Grand Fleet after the Sanji Arc.

And this same Sanji Arc would bring back and introduce some big time players, as well as the Zou Arc.

Rather than going rounds in circles, i’ll just provide you on who I think would be the characters that would comprise of Sanji’s team:

1. Black Leg Sanji
2. Smoker
3. Tashigi
4. Absalom
5. Gecko Moriah
6. Jewelrey Bonney
7. X-Drake
8. Jinbe
9. Pekoms
10. Pudding
11. Crocodile

These are people who would get introduced and re-introduced in Sanji’s Arc:
1. Dr. Vegapunk
2. Sentoumaru
3. Big Mom (obviously)
4. Pudding (obviously too)
5. Admiral Kizaru
6. Capone Bege
7. Crocodile
8. The Blonde Gorosei

Caesar would be taken away by Admiral Kizaru, while Vegapunk will reveal himself as one of the Revolutionary Leaders and leave the World Government.

The end of this arc would be Big Mom ending up as an ally of Sanji and the Strawhat Pirates.

Sanji’s team would come with him in Wano and merge with Luffy’s team.

While in Wano, Fujitora, Sengoku and Tsuru would also be involved. Ryukogyu would be introduced.

I actually have a scenario in mind but I know Oda-sensei would think of something better so I just left things like this.

*Theory by beck

Shanks and Blackbeard

Here is a guess about these two characters.

I find it suspicious how Shanks was implicated into the whole Ace and Teach fight. We know that Rayleigh knows about the void century, the will of D, he knows everything. It is the same for Shanks, problably, since he was in Roger’s crew as well.
Going with this, I believe that Shanks try to find “that man” that Crocus, and Whitebeard were talking about. Of course we know it’s Luffy, but Shanks as a character, I think his duty is to find that man, and he kinda did it with Luffy and the whole bet about the new generation.

Here is another example of Shanks ‘duty’ when he says to Cody that these few seconds of courage “have just made a huge difference in the fate of the world”, and these seconds of courage have indeed, distracted Kizaru’s shot that was going to finish Luffy. Shanks definitely sees luffy as the man that will change the world, the man awaited by Roger and co.

Now about the Ace vs Teach confrontation. Why did Shanks want to prevent this? “It’s not yet time for them to face each other!!” What is the meaning of that line? Is it the idea of two “D” confronting each other? It make me think about Luffy vs Teach. Two “D” confronting each other might inevitably lead to big changes in the world? That’s the case for Ace vs Teach, and it will probably be the case when Luffy will face Teach.

Now about the relationship between Shanks and Teach:

Why is he so concerned about Teach? Yes, there is the scar, but that’s it? I think it goes way beyond that. Now, theory time. I think that Shanks was friend with Teach.

I don’t think that Shanks could have deduces all of this, simply by having a fight against Teach. Shanks knows him pretty well, his ambition, his dream, his real power and so on. Why didn’t he say all of this to WB? First, because WB would not care and Shanks knows it, secondly, Oda might keep all of this for a flasback involving Shanks and Teach.

Now about the scar, the most important element:

“What ashes me now, is this one”. Really? Shanks lost his arm, suffered various wounds, he is an emperor, yet this simple scar would hurt him? I think the meaning behind this line, is that Shanks suffers from this scar because of the meaning behind it, not physically. If they were friends, I can totally imagine Teach betraying Shanks for some reasons.

But when would they meet? Why would they talk each other? Why would they become friends?

“This wound isn’t from my adventures”. I think it’s safe to say that by “adventures” Shanks means his journey with Roger, and his journey with his own crew.
Here is a timeline:

I think that longtime ago, after Roger’s death, Shanks met Teach and have seen in him the man that was awaited by Roger and co. Teach is a D, and Shanks could have been interested by him just like he was with Luffy. Shanks made a mistake and picked the wrong guy, that’s my guess. Why is Teach so confident about his fate? What does he know about the D? I think he knows almost everthing, thanx to Shanks. And that’s why Shanks might be so concerned by Teach. He was still young, and he made a mistake. He told him everything. Learning from his mistakes, he then did the opposite with Luffy, telling him nothing but just giving him hope and motives.

Why did they fight? Being a nobody (Teach’s childhood picture), I guess that knowing all of this story and his incredible fate, it changed him. He might have become greedy and power hungry from this moment.

And now:

They will probably end all of this with a fight.
So yea, that’s my 2cents about this.

WAS WHITEBEARD’S DEVIL FRUIT AWAKENED?

Hey guys, my first theory/discussion post so don’t expect too much, but all advice and support is greatly appreciated. This topic considering Whitebeard’s DF awakening has probably been talked about a lot, but he’s my favorite character so I just wanted to get a few of my own opinions and thoughts out there.

So, with the introduction of devil fruit awakenings, we so far only know of Doffy’s DF awakening for his string string fruit, which allowed him to manipulate his surroundings and turn objects into string which he was able to control. Possibly some Logia’s have their fruit awakened as well, such as Aokiji, Akainu and Crocodile which are pretty self explanatory (changing and altering the environment). I also believe that Whitebeard’s DF, the Gura Gura no Mi (tremor tremor fruit) was also awakened.

Whitebeard’s DF allowed him to create earthquakes. Whitebeard’s awakened ability allowed him to manipulate the air around him by punching it and creating air quakes, rather than punching the ground and directly causing an earthquake through the ground. Furthermore we see more of his POTENTIAL awakening ability in which he was able to grab air and tilt the earth. I believe this was apart of his awakening. If you guys don’t remember what i’m talking about (which is highly unlikely, it was just too epic) here is a link to refresh your memory.

Whitebeard was known as “The Strongest Man in The World” prior to the Marineford war, given this title I think in his prime, being such a powerful man and and one of the oldest Yonko’s at the time, it would be disappointing if he didn’t awaken his fruit. Also, Sengoku stated that Whitebeard had the power to destroy the world. Whitebeard potentially could’ve had the power to create an “earth destroying earthquake”. It doesn’t seem too unlikely due to the display of the Gura Gura no Mi we have seen so far. The main reason I think Whitebeard didn’t show his full potential was due to his illness, aging, etc.. or simply because he did not want to destroy the world lol.

(credit to Alpha2late17 for some of these potential abilities) Some major awakened abilities for Gura Gura no Mi can be:

-the ability to cause earthquakes far above magnitudes of 1-10.
-creating air quakes and tilting the air (already seen)
– putting earthquakes in things such as bubbles (similar to Kuma’s power)
-earthquakes lasting for days
-aftershocks and multiple tsunamis?
-create a possible end of the world scenario (like in the movie 2012)
– world ending earthquake, special ability (most likely be used by BB in the Final War Arc)

Now given these possible abilities, we still have a chance to see them due to the fruit now being held by Blackbeard. Since BB stole the fruit of WB I believe he stole the fruit as an awakened one and already has all these abilities, he just needs to learn of how to use them and be aware that he possesses such power. Another major possibility regarding BB’s strength is that BB could combine the power of earthquake fruit with his darkness fruit. A possible combo can be Blackbeard engulfing his enemy in a ball of darkness leaving them with no escape and having them experience an earthquake head-on. We will only learn and know of the true power of an awakened Gura Gura no Mi with Blackbeard since Whitebeard was too old and injured.

Anyways this is my theory, really had fun writing it out and putting in my thoughts about this topic, hope you guys enjoyed it.

*Theory by RaZeY

KAIDO: VEGAPUNK’S PERFECT CREATION

Kaido: Vegapunk’s Perfect Creation
From what we can come up with the latest chapter, there’s only a thing that stands out the most and that’s the fact that Kaido is invincible. Literally speaking, there’s nothing ever created in OPverse that can harm him at this moment not even the combined efforts of the Navy. But he got this prominent scar from his right ribcage extending down to his lower abdomen which is totally odd for a person defeated 7 times, captured by Marines 18 times, and tortured several times to only incur just one scar at all. Oda isn’t some drunken mangaka that will just name a guy that inflicted that scar on him despite the fact that it surely a fatal blow (Luffy almost died from his scar he incurred from Akainu) that made a scar that big which is totally counter-intuitive. Therefore, he incurred that scar before he enters the “invincible mode” of giantification (genetically human but humongous in size and strength). Let me quote Law’s statement:

“The ‘giantification’ of humans is something the World Government has been researching for hundreds of years… For soldiers probably…. If they could turn any soldier they wanted into a giant, they’d be invincible.”

1

From what we can see from the imagination bubble of Law, it resembles Kaido destroying some buildings and I come up with this hypothetical idea:

Kaido lived his life as a criminal(based on the latest chapter) so obviously he was captured by the Marines as a test subject for the giantification project of the World Government. Lots of failure and dead test subjects until they finally come across with Kaido and miraculously come up with the optimal solution and procedures for the operation. It worked well on Kaido and it spontaneously affected his physiology turning him into an aggressive juggernaut that destroys everything on his path (based on Law’s imagination bubble on manga). He destroyed everything on the laboratory, every record, and turned Vegapunk back to square one again as he left the ruined laboratory.

This is a total failure for Vegapunk. As usual it was all covered up by the World Government. But the research team is still recovering the perfect formula for giantification. The same reason why Caesar Clown is so eager to perfect the art of making human giants and eventually gain his lost reputation and become the greatest scientist. But Caesar Clown is a bit different this time; he got this wonderful idea that can possibly tame a beast like Kaido if he gradually ingests some addictive drug known as NCH10. This way, Caesar Clown is certain that his human giants will be obedient and come back for more without taking it by force just like what Marines are doing.

2
It also explains why Kaido is captured by the Marines 18 times and sunken 9 mammoth prison ships, Marines are trying hard to retrieve back Kaido on Vegapunk’s lab. Unfortunately, none of it worked. He’s completely unstoppable. This is evident from the test subjects of Caesar Clown on Punk Hazard that human giants are extremely destructive when infuriated.

3
As of this moment, I’m absolutely skeptical that Luffy will beat that caliber on monstrousness Kaido has. Obviously, they got 0% of winning from Kaido. But Law said they’ve got 30% if they follow the plan “step by step”. And I’m optimistic that Law somehow knows how to counter the invincibility of giantification.
He went all the trouble and inconveniences to make it on Punk Hazard for two major things:
1. To destroy the SAD Factory
2. To learn more and investigate about World Government’s research on giantification

4
Luckily, Caesar Clown is conducting the experiment too and he gains an access to walk through his laboratory without any trouble. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he got tons of knowledge about the subject. This is the same reason why he wants to take down Kaido first, since he knows something about Kaido’s weakness as compared to other Emperors he had no idea about and it gives their alliance enough marginal chance to win against him despite what we’ve seen from the latest chapter.

Law’s medical prowess and Ope Ope no mi will surely counter the giantification effect on Kaido’s body making him vulnerable again from attacks and Luffy will take advantage of it and his G4.

AOKIJI KUZAN: VAGABOND OF TRUE JUSTICE Theory

1

“A wandering vagabond or a man standing firm by his convictions? Its easy to tell the two apart.”

2

Kuzan is a man who is standing firm by his convictions and he is executing his lazy justice as we speak. Before I say anything else, please know that Kuzan is NOT a revolutionary….yet. If he was then how do you explain this?

3

Why tell Smoker to warn Sakazuki about Doflamingo? Kuzan has no reason to do that if he was a revolutionary, as that would make Sakazuki and the WG his enemy.

Kuzan is quite the mysterious man and after his defeat by Akainu for the position of Fleet Admiral, he resigned from the marines and disappeared. Its quite obvious however, that he is still perusing his own justice.

4

That justice has apparently made him an acquaintance of Blackbeard.

5

Simply put, Kuzan is a member of the Blackbeard Pirates.

In order to even find Blackbeard however, Kuzan had to get involved in the underground to find out his alias.

6

But as you know, Kuzan isn’t exactly unknown. Everyone knows that he is a former admiral so no one would dare reveal any infortation to him, fearing for their own safety so how did Kuzan get the info exactly?

He forced the info out of people with pain and fear and completed dirty tasks for others.

7

It isn’t unlike Kuzan to resort to such dark tactics and deeds. When he first meet the SH pirates, he tried to kill Nico Robin. He would’ve done it too if it weren’t for Luffy. He also tried to kill Luffy in Marineford.

Now then, we know that Kuzan is a member of the BB pirates by why did he show up on Punk Hazard in the first place?

8

Kuzan was on a mission to capture Caesar Clown for Blackbeard. Blackbeard wants control of the SMILE production program.

Do you really think Blackbeard would let a former admiral just waltz into his crew without some proof of loyalty? In order to make sure that Kuzan is serious, Blackbeard ordered Kuzan to capture Caesar for him, but Caesar was already gone and on his way to Dressrosa.

Kuzan informed Blackbeard of the current situation but Blackbeard was still confident, as word in the underground said that Doflamingo is hosting a tournament and the winner gets the Mera Mera no mi. With this, Kuzan was teamed with Jesus Burgess. Kuzan’s mission was to once again capture Caesar and Burgess’ mission was to get the Mera and steal all of the SMILES in Dressrosa.

Burgess is halfway done with his mission.

9

In that bag are all the SMILES Burgess stole from the factory.

Kuzan however will once again fail in his mission but this time, it will be intentionally. The Sunny Team is currently being chased by the Big Mam pirates and Kuzan will secretly help them escape by freezing the waters and stopping Big Mam’s ship in its tracks. For Kuzan, Caesar being in the hands of the SHs is better than Big Mam or Blackbeard.

After that is done, Kuzan will save Jeusu Burgess and they will make their way back

10

Kuzan may or may not have a confrontation with Sabo.

The big question is why is Kuzan getting involved with Blackbeard in the first place? Kuzan wants to investigate the secret of Blackbeard eating two devil fruits and how he is executing his devil fruit hunt.

Kuzan’s questions will be answered in the Kaidou arc when Blackbeard kills Kaidou and transfers his devil fruit to Stronger(Doc Q’s horse). It will also be in this arc where Kuzan learns that the WG were trading weapons with Kaidou and Kuzan will lose all motivation to help the WG in any way.

After the Kaidou arc, Kuzan will once again disappear, resurfacing during the World Government Takeover.

Kuzan was asked by Dragon years ago to joined the revolutionaries but he declined, believing the a rebellion was too extreme and thought he could change the WG from the inside. However, not only does Kuzan no longer have any pull with the WG, he believes a takeover is going to far and that justice will never be realized if the current WG exist. He will join the revolutionaries and the info he has gained about Blackbeard will be quite helpful.

11

In the center of the WG takeover will be the SH pirates and Kuzan will save them from Akainu’s meteor volcano by freezing mid air. He will reveal himself as a new revolutionary with other revs backing him, holding off Akainu’s fleet while the SHs make it to Dragon.
