CAPONE AND JERMA 66

Jerma 66, or Warmonger, is an evil ‘mythical’ army lead by Sanji’s family, the Vinsmokes, with Sanji’s father being the head. They are most likely very powerful, seeing Nami’s reaction. She viewed it as ‘a load of crap’, meaning that Jerma 66 was so crazy it almost seemed like the organization was sculpted out of a tall tale.

[​IMG]

Notice their choice of words. She says ‘make believe’, with Pekoms telling her it does indeed exist. It most be widely known, and to assuage normal people’s fears, someone has been telling them it is make believe and a myth.
The influence that they have is massive. They can easily get the WG to give/change bounties. This in my opinion can only mean two things.
1. They have something the WG wants.
and
2. The WG acknowledges them as a threat and gives them what they want before they lash out against them.
What I am trying to make out of this is that Jerma 66 is a crazy strong organization that is feared by the WG and is powerful enough to be considered a myth.
Now, to Capone. Capone has been in Big Mom’s ranks for an unknown amount of time. He is the leader of the Fire Tank Pirates, as well as a Mafia Boss. I have previously theorized about him betraying Big Mom, and I’ve been starting to think about a few things. What does Big Mom want that Capone have, or what she may have that Capone will want in the future? I think Jerma 66 may possibly hold the key to that.
Right now we do not know much about Jerma 66 other than what we have already been presented in earlier chapters. But, I am leaning towards Jerma 66 having something the WG wants, since they would have to be absurdly powerful to rival them. I started thinking about the wedding/tea party. We don’t know much about the tea party, but I am assuming that they would be lavish parties that took a long amount of time to plan. Capone may have join once he heard that Jerma 66 may soon be affiliated with Big Mom.
What does Capone want from Jerma? He may want to take over and use it to ascend to a higher ranking in the pirate world, or they may have something they have.

SANJI AND PURIN

As we know, Sanji’s last name is Vinsmoke. Vin is the French term for “Wine”, seeing as Sanji is a high-class cook, and Smoke is pretty self-explanatory. The Vinsmoke family is obviously a noble family because:
1. Sanji is wanted only alive
2. He’s having an arranged marriage, a custom that is practiced by rich and noble families

He is also the youngest of three. I’m assuming his two older siblings are male, and their names are Ichiji and Niji.

Ichi = 1
Ni = 2
San = 3

[IMG]

Now, moving on to Purin. My prediction is that she’s the three-eyed woman on Big Mom’s ship, due to the fact that the “San” in Sanji’s name translates to 3.

Does that mean Sanji and Purin will get married? I highly doubt it, because that means he will have to remain loyal to her, and it’s too early in the series for him to stop flirting with every woman he meets. It would also ruin the adventures of the Straw Hats, because Sanji will either leave for good and live with Purin, or Purin will join the crew. I’m almost certain that Luffy and the others will crash the wedding and save Sanji, sort of like the Strong World scenario with Nami.

That’s all I have to say. What do you guys think? Any feedback is welcome

*Theory by Dead-0r-A1ive

Another foreshadowing of Oda?

Chapter 124 Page 1. Sanji carrying a suitcase having the words “The Secret” and number 1830 while pointing to a sign board with the name Tsuru, who could be Vice Admiral Tsuru who was stationed at North Blue 13 years ago, where Sanji is born. Could this mean Tsuru know about Sanji’s past and Vinsmoke family? Oh, and the chapter name “This Tea is Really Delicious”

Chapter_124

 

THE FLEET IN USE FOR THE FIRST TIME

The Straw Hat Grand Fleet Finally To Use!!!

So people,I’m finally back at theorizing,and I have a hyped one this time,about the Straw Hat Grand Fleet.

[​IMG]

Maybe it’s too early for the Fleet to be used,but after the marriage of Sanji being thrown at us,and the fact that it will be with a member of the Big Mom pirates and family,to save Sanji the 8 members of the Straw Hat pirates won’t be enough.And for such a important thing as rescueing a nakama, Luffy won’t hesitate on using every and each help possible. 
Big Mom herself is a monster and she probably has a good amount of commanders who are very powerfull too,besides other strong members and all her fleet that will most likely be present for such an important occasion as a marriege,so the SH will need allies,if not the whole fleet,”just” the minks,cause like Capone said,the minks are right now allies.
The minks like we saw,are strong enough to fight Jack and his underlings plus his help,so I think that if not the whole fleet,they might be enough.

And to close this theory down,it’s quite possible that the Minks join the Grand Fleet and here are some reasons:

  1. They may be a country instead of a pirate crew,but they have zero ties to the World Govermnent
  2. The Minks have a huge debt to the Straw Hats,so no better way to pay then help rescue Sanji and the SH in future occasion by joining their Fleet
  3. Nekomamushi and Inuarashi were once pirates.
  4. Those two are powerfull enough to fight Jack head on and have real chances of winning.

VINSMOCK FAMILY

After Oda dropped that incredible bombshell upon us, I’m going to add to the substantial arguments in favour of Sanji being a Tenryuubito, this one will be short but sweet.

Sanji’s name has two meanings:
San means Three, Ji can either mean O’clock or Temple. Oda has confirmed that Sanji’s name is 3 O’clock or rather, snack time! Hence he is named as such for being a chef. However, we also know he is the third son of the Vinsmock family.

Clearly, as the third son, his name strongly relates in his order of birth and therefore I believe his other brothers will be named after their order of birth too. We have Ichiji and Niji, Sanji’s older brothers. If their father follows the same naming pattern he will be called Reiji, however I doubt this.

Ichiji is the first born. Niji is the second born.

Now that we’ve delved into the brothers and their names, there are some other underlying and ‘hidden’ clues.

The ‘Temple’ part of their names can be a direct reference to being praised as some sort of religious or political figures, the same way the Tenryuubito view themselves as Gods. They refer to eachother as ‘your holyness’ and separate themselves from normal humans

[IMG]

The religion of Christianity, the most followed faith on the planet, originates from Israel. The Bible speaks of ‘three temples’, like Sanji’s family.

  • First is Solomon’s Temple, which was built on Mt Moriah in seven and a half years. (could Moriah be involved in Sanji’s past? Did he encounter Ichiji?) This temple housed the Ark of the Covenant.
    This temple supposedly had the Brazen Alter of sacrifice, the Brazen Sea for Priests to wash themselves and the Brazen Layers of washing utensils. This temple was razed and burnt down by Nebuchadnezzar
  • The temple of Zerubbabel, this was built in two years. The temple followed a similar plan to that of Solomon’s Temple on a much lesser scale. The temple was sacked and most items stolen and the temple was later used for Idolatrous purpose
  • Thirdly is Herod’s temple. Unlike the other temples, this one had a court specifically for female use. This temple existed at the time of Jesus Christ. Both Jesus and Herod have been called the King of Kings on several occasions in the Bible.

So what?

Well, IF the Temples have some relation to the brothers:

  • Ichiji has some history with Moriah and is seven and a half years older than Sanji. He too has a background of being a Chef. It’s possible he gave his life to save Sanji and Niji from attackers of unknown faction, he may be dead. His death was caused by fire.
  • Niji is two years older than Sanji and shares many similarities with Ichiji. Ichiji was likely imprisoned or kidnapped by the same attackers of unknown persuasion. Niji may have been a massive pervert and had a strong attachment to aesthetic values. However, it’s possible Niji may still be alive.
  • Sanji ran away and escaped the threat that took his two brothers away from him. He inherited the wills of both brothers as a Chef and the usage of Fire as well as being extremely perverted like his second brother. The notion King of Kings simply ties the third Temple into Sanji and Luffy, the Pirate King to be.

This is wild speculation of mine, but I think it would make a lot of sense.

What’s more, Sanji’s well known and obvious French theme strongly relates to ‘Vinsmock’.

Vin is French for Wine, seen as ‘the drink of the Gods’ in many cultures including: Greek, Roman, Carthaginian and Persian culture. Stronger relating to the connotations of being Tenryuubito, other Tenryuubito family names also have Godly meanings. The first part of Donquixote is Spanish for ‘Gift’ or sacrifice, common practice in these same cultures.

Extra: A Smock is a type of dress – this may relate to Sanji’s love of women? It’s also a play on the word ‘Smoke’, a reference to cigarettes and cooking.

There are lots of Godly inferences in the new reveal, and also a lot of references to food. So who were Ichiji, Niji and Sanji? Were they trainee cooks for the Tenryuubito? Were they simply regular Tenryuubitos?

Conclusion:

  • Sanji’s brothers are Ichiji (7.5 years older) and Niji (2 years older), his dad might be called Reiji
  • Ichiji is dead
  • Niji is in captivity somewhere, although this is currently an unknown arbiter
  • Sanji escaped the threat that took Ichi’s life and captured Niji, he has since inherited their wills
  • The Vinsmock family is either a Cook family, subservient to the Tenryuubito or a Tenryuubito family themselves

LAPUTA AND ITS MYTHOLOGICAL INHABITANTS

I’ll like to welcome you guys in another of my absurd theories!!

Oda has been always been inspired from folk tales and fairy tales.In his story he has put reference from stories like The Singing Bone(Brook),Snow white (Alvida’s mirror),Noah Ark(Noah),Pinocchio (Usopp ) and a lot more.

In Dressrosa, Oda drew this panel-

[​IMG]

Nico Robin was tied down to the Earth with the help of the strings.

[​IMG]

This scene was inspired by Gulliver Travels, a novel written by Jonathan Swift .The Lilliputian,i.e the dwarfs tied up Gulliver to the ground as Gulliver laid on the ground,unconscious.

This sounds similar to Robin, who found herself tied up after regaining consciousness.

Another thing to notice is that unlike in the Gulliver travels,the dwarfs in One Piece are gullible.

I believe that this is more of a reference to Gulliver,who like his name suggest, was Gullible.

But what is more interesting is that there is more to Gulliver travels than just the encounter of Gulliver with the Lilluput dwarves.There are more places in the story that Gulliver visited.

The places that Gulliver visited are :
1)Lilliput and Blefuscu – inhabited by Dwarves
2)Brobdingnag-Inhabited with Giants.
3)Glubbdubdrib – Isle of Sorcerers.
4)Luggnagg – Based near Japan, with a feudal system and immortal citizens

5)Laputa – A Mobile floating island
6)Balnibarbi.

As far as we have seen , Noland has visited Green Bit , the land of the Dwarves.
We have also seen that the land of Giants exists in the world if One Piece ,as the name of Elbaf.

Fable is the word that comes out when Elbaf is written from the opposite end.
A Fable as a noun means – a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral while as a verb,fable means – tell fictitious tales.

Now , I would like you to read the 2nd paragraph in this page.Do note the words ‘fable in reverse’

I do believe that Elbaf will also be a reference from Gulliver travels.

Similarlly ,there is Balnibarbi,another land that Gulliver visited in the story.I believe Balnibarbi is a reference to Shandoria,the land where the Golden City was placed upon.

These are some words that would describe Balnibarbi –

Apart from Munodi’s own estate, which seems to flourish and thrive, the rest of the land has been ruined and eroded away. It seems that several people decided to visit Laputa, and were dissatisfied with their own existence down below.

[​IMG]


In Shandoria, the farms and crops were in ruin.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

The Shandoria houses looked pale when compared to the Golden City.The Golden City in itself looked like the Black sheep in the island.

This is much similar to Balnibarbi, where except for Muondi’s estate,everything looked in ruins.

The Shandorians were primitive men like the people in Balnibarbi.

Also similar to Gulliver travels,where the people went to Laputa,the people of Shandoria came from the Moon to the Earth.

————————————–
As from above,you have probably seen that Oda has made references from Gulliver travels in quite a few instances.

But,here,I will be basically mentioning about Laputa.

Laputa is a flying island. It is about 4.5 miles in diameter, with an adamantine base, which its inhabitants can maneuver in any direction using magnetic levitation.

In Dressrosa,Oda has shown one more reference of Gulliver travels.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Do notice in both the pictures,there are similarities like the island on the Northwest,the borders of the islands.
The position of Green Bit in the first map is taken by Laputa on the 2nd map.

Now before I go on any further,let me describe to you the inhabitants of Laputa.

Laputa’s population consists mainly of educated people, who are fond of mathematics, astronomy, music and technology. Servants make up the rest of the population.

The Laputans have mastered magnetic levitation .

Laputa is a male-dominated society. Wives often request to leave the island to visit the land below; however, these requests are almost never granted because the women who leave Laputa never want to return. The clothes of Laputans, which do not fit, are decorated with astrological symbols and musical figures. They spend their time listening to the music of the spheres. They believe in astrology and worry constantly that the sun will go out.
The Laputan women are highly sexed and adulterous, preferring men from the island of Balnibarbi. The Laputan husbands, who are so abstracted in mathematical and musical calculations, don’t know that their wives are adulterous.

So intent are the Laputans in their scientific studies that they cannot function in the everyday world, or even perceive it.
Now,Laputa is a male dominated society filled with people who liked to research.Also Laputa,is an island that moved upon itself.

Doesn’t this reminds of this place in One Piece?

[​IMG]

Weatheria,the sky island whose inhabitants studies the weather and climates of the One Piece world.

[​IMG]

The sky island was mobile as it drifts with the winds.And the people would often descent to collect supplies.

Also the society looked to be full of males that love to research the effects of weather.

[​IMG]

But,let me clarify it, Weatheia is not the Laputa of One Piece.Rather it is a man made establishment at a small sky island.

First of all,let me point out to you this picture

[​IMG]

The island if Weatheria seems to have machines fitted inside it.
Now studying the weather seemed possible but the efficiency in creation of machines pointed me out that the people of Weatheria has much potentials in other fields than just weather and climate.

Also,it seemed strange that there are no children in Weatheria.This seemed strange to me that if Weatheria is a island ,then his come the old men there could not think of offspring ,who will continue their studies.

And one more point I’ll like to mention.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Do note that except for Boin Archipelago and Weatheria, there are nicknames for each other island shown above.I can understand for Boin archipelago, as it is an uninhabited island and hence the name in itself suggests the nature of island.

But what about Weatheria,an island that has inhabitants and have been known to many countries as Weatheria used to collect supplies.

We know,that Oda does plans out things and give a fitting and unique name to anything , whether it be a person or country.But when I read the name Weatheria,it didn’t fit more to Oda’s style.Usually Oda would put more of a fitting name to such a beautiful country,like as he did for Boin Archipalego.
I beleive Weatheria was created from the hand of the men of the Laputa. It is a establishment that controls the research over weather and climate and so it was named Weatheria.
It was not a country since long ago and rather it can be called an establishment and part of Laputa hence no nickname was given to it.

Now,we have been also introduced to a floating mass of body that levitated .

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

—————————————-
Now,in Skypiea,we have been introduced to two new races,Skypieans and Shandians.It is my belief that in this sky island also,there will be a race.

Indeed,but before that let me tell you,Oda is a huge fan of Dragon ball z .Rather I would like you to read this interview to know how much Oda liked Dragon Ball(the first version).
Oda has also shown two references to Dragon Ball :

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

This time I believe Oda will take inspiration from these guys.

[​IMG] [​IMG]

This time i am refering to the Demon clan(mazoku) of Dragon Ball manga.Do note that from the interview I gave above,we can determine that Oda does admire Dragon Ball .There is also a special characteristoc of many of the demons in Dragon Ball ,that I’ll mention later.

Now let me point out the term Mazoku.

Mazoku(魔族) is a common concept in Japanese fantasy referring to a clan of beings born with supernatural and paranormal powers.

In fictional usage,The meaning of mazoku differs from series to series. Some stories coins the term general to all evil beings (instead of a single biological species) that are enemies or nemesis of humans and good gods; while some others used it to specify a certain tribe (not necessarily evil). Since the word does not refer to any specific fantasy species, what the term refers to varies from series to series. Sometimes, it is portrayed as other biological species, with individuals having similar characteristics, while other series having unique features on different individuals.
They look completely human .

Now , I believe that Oda has used a race , that are similar to the Mazoku,and can also be coined as one because of their powers.

Although the term maō is also used as king of mazoku, it is also commonly used as a general term of king of demons, king of devils, and more general, just an overlord, a dark lord or an archenemy of the hero. Having a maō in a series does not necessarily mean that there is a mazoku clan for it to rule, a maō can simply rule humans, monsters, anything or nothing at all. Der Erlkönig, by Johann Wolfgang widely translated as “Elf King” in English, was translated as 魔王 (Maō) in Japanese.

Also, do note,Mazoku are often connected with magic.

But the most important of their characteristics, which is what the special characteristic of the demon in Dragon Ball , is that they have pointed ears.

Getting my point: Magic,Pointed ears, Looking normal humans.

I believe Oda will introduce the Elves in Laputa.


An elf (plural: elves) is a type of supernatural being in Germanic mythology and folklore.Reconstructing the early concept of an elf depends almost entirely on texts in Old English or relating to Norse Mythology .Later evidence for elves appears in diverse sources such as medical texts, prayers, ballads, and folktales.

Do note that Oda is a fan of Norse mythologies and has introduced Centaurs , Dwarf , Giants, Harpies and etc.

Modern fantasy literature has revived the elves as a race of semi-divine beings of human stature who are friendly with nature and animals. Although the álfar of Norse Mythology has influenced the concept of elves in fantasy, the elves are different from Norse and the traditional elves found in Middle ages folklore.

A hallmark of fantasy elves is also their long and pointed ears (a convention begun with a note of Tolkien’s that the ears of elves were “leaf-shaped”).The length and shape of these ears varies depending on the artist or medium in question. Post-Tolkien fantasy elves tend to be immortal or longeval in comparison to humans, more beautiful and wiser, with sharper senses and perceptions, and abilities or crafts that seem alien or magical.

Though Tolkien originally conceived his Elves as more fairy-like than they afterwards became, he also based them on the god-like and human-sized Ljósálfar of Norse mythology. His elves were conceived as a race of beings similar in appearance to humans but fairer and wiser, with greater spiritual powers, keener senses, and a closer empathy with nature. They are great smiths and fierce warriors on the side of good.

Tolkien’s Elves of Middle-earth are biologically immortal in the sense that they are not vulnerable to disease or the effects of old age (closer to the concept of indefinite lifespan than true immortality). Although they can be killed in battle like humans and may alternately wither away from grief, their spirits only pass to the blessed land in the west called Valinor, whereas humans’ souls leave the world entirely.

Post-Tolkien fantasy elves (popularized by the Dungeons & Dragonsrole-playing game) tend to be beautiful, fair, and close in size to humans (usually taller, sometimes shorter). A hallmark of fantasy elves is also their long and pointed ears. In gaming, and to some extent fantasy literature, elves as a rule have a greater depth of knowledge (especially regarding magic) than their human counterparts, due to a racial inclination as well as their extreme age.

If you have read all this ,well kudos to you…

Now,in One Piece,there have been many a instances where the term magic,spell or sorcery has been used.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Indeed,we have also met two fortune tellers also , Basil Hawkins and Madame Sharly.
Basil Hawkins was also called the Magician in the One Piece world.

Nami’s Sorcery climatact had improved and its name also changed after the Time skip . She was also called a wizard by the New Fishmam pirates.

The Weatheria people also wore wizard clothes and indeed looked like wizards with their beards.

Also Harpy and Yuki-onna are magical entities that Monet transformed into.

So,with so many references, we will get to see magic in the one piece world and that us mainly through the Elves in Laputa.

————————————————

Also now I would like to mention thing,we have seen dwarves in the current story aside from the guys in Weatheria.

I am talking about Monet,Donquixote underling at the ports.

First of all I’ll rather put that her character and her past has yet not been explored and I doubt won’t explore her and Sugar in the future.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Also there is no introductory box for Sugar while other members of the Donquixote crew did get one each.
This means that Oda is planning to introduce Sugar later .

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Both Monet and Vergo got strange Introductory panels.We also know that Monet was not indeed an Harpy and more of a human.

Later it was revealed that Vergo was a Vice Admiral and was given a proper introduction.

So in the end,Monet and Sugar are the only ones that did not get their correct introduction panels.I believe that irrespective of Monet being dead or alive,she has to play a role in a future arc(Laputa arc).

Also in volume 77 SBS, Oda mentioned

Sugar and Monet were rescued from an extremely misfortunate environment by Doflamingo himself, and as sisters aged 9 and 17, they resolved to throw their lives away if it were for the sake of the Family. They were provided with Devil Fruits after joining. You see, Doflamingo is very observant of the “environments” that people grow up in.

It’s the extremely misfortune environment at Laputa that Oda is referring to here. Women at Laputa were often adulterous and I believe Monet and Sugar are not biological sisters.Because of very less regard given to women in Laputa,Monet and Sugar grew up in a environment which discriminated of women.

[​IMG]

It has been hinted that Monet did study astrology while Sugar did not show any traits of being excelled in a field of science yet.

Do notice that Sugar eyes are blue which is a recessive trait in usual.
I believe that Sugar is the offspring of a Elf couple while Monet is the offspring of one of Sugar’s parents and a slave.

[​IMG]

Sugar has been based on Amelie Poulain,a person who spent her childhood at home having private tutoring.
Similarly Sugar stayed her whole life at a private home in Laputa with Monet taking care of her and fulfilling her needs.
Because of which Sugar got hold of some eccentric qualities and behaved like a spoiled brat.
Also Monet got experienced in child rearing which she used to raise the children at Punk Hazard.

Now for Monet’s attacks, we already know that Doflamingo has based the name of some of his attacks from the past incidents.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

I believe Snow fence was a reference to her past where she had to live in a place with limited movements.She was forbidden from exiting Laputa and perhaps a fence would be best to describe her life at Laputa.

[​IMG]

Perhaps this is her strangest attacks where is has not been explained ,why the rabbits were used.
Elves are often resembled with rabbits because of their sharp pointed ears,which looks the same as rabbits.

I believe ,during her stay with Sugar,Sugar often used to call her a rabbit,hence the attack name came up.

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Do notice that at no instance in the Manga(not the anime),Monet or Sugar’s ears were showed.I would had called this a coincidence but for when Monet’s ears were not shown when she had short hair,I believed it is not a coincidence. Rather it was to hide the fact that she is a elf.

Yuki-onna and Harpies,are sometimes also shown as magical beings having no ill will though they are also referred to as evil ones .

Also Sugar ‘turning people into Toys’ can be also called as magic,as in magic turning ‘objects into animals and birds’ are a common trick.

Taking all these points and checking the characteristics of Laputans and Elves given above like efficiency in astronomy, keener senses etc , I believe Monet and Sugar are in actual a elf.
————————————————–

So who do I believe will take part in Laputa arc.

The arc will center Nami ,a person who is obviously referred with magic and witches.It will be in this arc that perhaps her Climatact will get a huge needed upgrade.
Also in the SBS,Oda told that he actually planned a Nami vs Monet fight in Punk Hazard.Ironically it would be a fight between two magic users.

[​IMG]

Also Haredas has been shown to occupy a orb,which usually is used by Sorcerers and witches.

Also , coming to witches , Big Mom will also take part in this arc.

[​IMG]

Also , Capone, whose ship was pulled towards Laputa,has been shown to be involved with Big Mom.Perhaps he has became an ally of Big Mom after his travels in Laputa.
Perhaps we may see Sugar again and even Hawkins.
