The Holy Land of Mariejois’ Influence

The Holy Land Mariejois is the capital of the World Government and functions as the primary path which individuals seeking to enter the other, far more tumultuous and dangerous side of the Grand Line, the New World, pass through. This route is open only to persons within the jurisdiction of the law; in other words, Marines and World Government agents. This elegant capital furthermore serves as the headquarters of the World Goverment, the main governing body of the One Piece world. Mariejois’ significance and unrivaled importance is also illustrated by the fact that the Reverie meets here on a regular basis in order to discuss current international events and propose and implement solutions.

The Holy Land of Mariejois shows a very strong resemblance to the Château de Chambord, located in France. It is one of the world’s most recognizable châteaux because of its distinct French Renaissance architecture which was never completed. It was constructed by King François I.



This is a theory I have been working on since chapter 801 came out and I find really interesting. It is about Sanji somehow being Satan or Oda being inspired by Satan. Moreover I will talk about Sanji’s family, his will and his relationship with Kaido!
Reasons why I believe Sanji is the “Satan” of One Piece/or his characteristics are inspired from Satan.
It is a widely known fact that Satan in his animal state/version is a billy goat.
Billy goats’ horns are spiral just like Sanji’s eyebrows. Moreover in some pictures and movies Satan is depicted with curly eyebrows just like Sanji. Still not convinced?Then what about this: Satan is the lord of hell-a place filled with fire right? Sanji’s diable jump is composed of fire and after the timeskip Sanji also has a new technique called Hell’s Memories. I believe Oda had been trying to foreshadow Sanji’s connection to hell. Some other facts that can be Oda foreshadowing what I said are: Sanji turning to Devil at Thriller Bark (although it is for fun reasons).
There second foreshadow is Sanji being a cook. Yeah Sanji being a cook has a lot to do with fire. He has been seen using fire while cooking just like every cook and that’s why I think Oda did not make Sanji “Satan” since the beginning of the series but realised afterwards that his character/appearance would be really suitable for the role.
Moving on to the second part of this theory/speculation I am going to talk about Sanji’s Will and its former owner. Furthermore,I will talk about Sanji’s family. If Sanji really does resemble Satan , I firmly believe that he is the son of a Tenryubito. To be more specific,I believe that when the Tenryubito saw Sanji’s eyebrows (some months after being born cause babys’ heads are not completely formed when they are born)and maybe a tendency of him liking fire and approaching it , they understood/thought it was a sign from above. As most of us know, Satan protested against God and is said to have fought with him. So what the Celestial Dragons actually thought was that Sanji was going to destroy them as they are considered Gods-they thought he was a threat. Actually I believe he inherited Don Quixote Homing’s (Doffy’s father)will.
Just like Homing, Sanji would grow sick and tired of the Celestial Dragons and would punish them in a way more brutal way than Homing did (he actually did not have enough power to ruin the Celestial Dragons,but Sanji did!). So they CD wanted to kill Sanji desperately. This is the point where Sanji and Kaido are connected.
Sanji’s And Kaido’s Relationship
There is a big chance of Kaido having been a slave for the CD.I believe it too. So what actually connects Sanji and Kaido is this: Kaido overhearring that the CD wanted to kill Sanji, they hated him and they called him Devil. Think of it! Kaido actually  SAW HIMSELF IN SANJI. He has obviously been wanted dead by a lot of people, hated and called the Devil too. Then Fisher Tiger arrives at Mariejoa’s setting everyone free , along with Kaido taking the little “Satan” with him before him being executed. But Kaido would never be a fitting parent right? So what I believe is that he left Sanji at someone he trusted and never saw him again. But he cared so much for Sanji. However the sea is huge and Sanji hasn’t always been at the same ship nor at the same location. So Kaido has been looking for his lost “self” and that’s why he is depressed and wants to die! Because he can’t find the only creature that actually made him happy and did not make him seem like a brutal freak!

Other Thoughts: I believe Sanji will awaken CoC as the King of hell. And now something about Sanji’s character. Although it may seem crazy, Sanji being okay with being friend-zoned is like Baby-5’s character. I think that at the very depth of his mind he has memories (filled with “fog” and can’t really recall clearly) of being wanted dead and that’s why he is just okay with everything. That’s also why he respected and loved Zeff so much… because his is one of the few people that risked their life for Sanji!

So in light of the recent chapter of One Piece, we have learned that those who are considered “D”s are the “Natural Enemies of Gods”. Now as we all know, within One Piece the Celestial Dragons consider themselves Gods, among the human race. When you take the context of what Corazon said about the “D”s being the natural enemies of the “Gods”, one would assume that this means, the “D”s take on the role of the Devils.

I know, I know, it sounds crazy right, especially considering that in most religions and Mythology, the Devil, is undoubtably an evil entity, and just doesn’t seem to fit the persona of all the “D”s we have seen so far within the series of One Piece…. Well I decided to do some digging, and I found something very very interesting. In some religions, the Devils were known as “Tricksters”, and these beings, although sometimes were considered evil, were far from the “Devils” I had grown up reading about. And the more I read up on them, the more and more I saw the similarities between “Tricksters” and “D”s.

*In mainstream Islam and Christianity, God and the Devil are usually portrayed as fighting over the souls of humans. The Devil commands a force of evil spirits, commonly known as demons.[2] The Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament) describes the Adversary (ha-satan) as an angel who instigates tests upon humankind.[3][4] Many other religions have a trickster or tempter figure that is similar to the Devil. Modern conceptions of the Devil include the concept that it symbolizes humans’ own lower nature or sinfulness..

**The trickster deity breaks the rules of the gods or nature, sometimes maliciously (for example, Loki) but usually with ultimately positive effects (though the trickster’s initial intentions may have been either positive or negative).

***Operating outside the framework of right and wrong, tricksters do not recognize the rules of society. Their characters and actions are far from simple, however. Often childish, greedy, lustful, and even nasty, tricksters can also be friendly, helpful, clever, and wise. Sometimes they appear to be clownish, clumsy, or foolish, although they usually possess amazing powers of survival. A trickster may come to a sorry end in one story but then, after being miraculously brought back to life, reappear in other tales.

****Sometimes a trickster is a creator or culture hero whose activities explain how some aspect of the world came into being. In northeastern America, for example, myths of the Algonquian-speaking people tell of a trickster named Gluskap. Gluskap lived in the cold north, but during a journey to the warm south, he tricked Summer, a beautiful female chieftain, into returning north with him. After she melted the cold of Winter, Gluskap let her return to her home. Maui, the trickster hero of the Polynesian Islands in the Pacific Ocean, created the world while he was fishing. He let out a long fishing line and reeled in island after island from the bottom of the ocean. Later, Maui stole fire from the underworld and gave it to humans.

This is just some of the Information that I have found on Trickster, and trust me, I could quote a whole lot more. But as you can see, the trickster, is neither good nor evil. They live their life the way they want to, and depending on the circumstances, tend to bring some type of positive effect around them, regardless of their intentions in the first place. If you look at if from the standpoint of of the “D”s we’ve seen so far in the series, from the M0nkeys to the Marshalls, it basically covers both sides of the spectrum pertaining to Tricksters.

So what do you guys think, are the “D”s ultimately the “Tricksers/Devils” of the One Piece World, or do you believe that the “D”s hide a deeper meaning? If so, what do you believe they are?
