PREVIOUS USER OF GOMU GOMU NO MI

Hi guys, this is my first theory/speculation, so please bear with me!

As we all know that Luffy because his devil fruit powers can withstand large amount of distress and pain caused to his body and his internal organs – Second Gear and so on…

Who else in the past have we seen withstanding very critical pain and doing stuff not possible for a normal human being even in One Piece?

The answer would be Portgas D. Rouge, yes lover of the Pirate King and mother of our late beloved Ace!

Portgas_D._Rouge_Portrait
She held Ace inside her for nearly 20 months, which a normal woman’s body cannot withstand, but because of the powers of the Gomu Gomu no Mi she could withstand the presence of her baby inside her for nearly 2 years!

But eventually even with the Gomu Gomu no Mi ‘s power the 20 months was little out its capabilities and she lost her life!

And to see many theories relating Shanks and Rouge which lead to Shanks being apprentice of the Roger pirates ship, it would seem possible for Shanks having fight for the Gomu Gomu no Mi from an enemy!

Thanks for reading it! All of your thoughts are welcomed!

MEANING OF THE “D”/IT’S NOT THE DEVIL

We all have been reading so much theories surrounding the letter D in names of important characters in OP. And mostly they say it stands for DEVIL, the ones who oppose Gods or should we say now Royalties. What i think is a bit different. The letter D stand for Death. The reason behind this is that so far we’ve got to know 9 different characters who have letter D the in their names.
Immagine
You can see in the picture that i uploaded, 4 of 9 characters are already dead. So my theory is that the D or should i say curse brings violent death to them or to people whom they love if they don’t sacrifice themselves instead. Maybe that’s what Roger knew (hearing the poneglyphs) and that is the reason why Gol D. Roger surrendered himself to Marines, because he didn’t want that curse to affect his kid – Portgas D. Ace. Perhaps they are destined to die while protecting others and there is no other way to escape death and that’s why Roger died by the hands of Marines, to protect his son. And the reason why he entrusted Ace to Garp because he Roger knew the secret behind the name and was sure that the Garp was the best choice to protect Ace considering D in his name and what it stands for. Maybe the D has a double meaning – Death and Defending (the ones you love). Garp eventually didn’t sacrifice himself to protect Ace, and Ace died – and we all now how important and loved Ace and Luffy were by Garp, even if he didn’t show it. Perhaps in future Luffy will be in mortal danger and Garp or Dragon will  die to protect him.
Now if we look upon other characters who also died in OP, we can see that they died while protecting others. So Roger and Portgas D. Rogue died protecting their son, Jaguar D. Saul died protecting Nico Robin and finally Ace died while protecting Luffy. Trafalgar D. Law was a kid and couldn’t save the ones he loved. that is the curse considering D or should i say Death of the name bearers.

THE NO.1 OF REVOLUTIONARY ARMY?

We know that Sabo is the General Officer of the Revolutionary Army. He’s famous as No.2 of the Revo Army .
[​IMG]
Now, in many Organizations the ranking order goes by numbers. The smaller the number, the higher the rank that member has. Baroque works had similar system ,where the agents were number given code names. (for eg., Mr.1, Mr.2 )
I dont think that Revo army gives number code names to their officers. But it is common practice to call the top officers of a Organisation by numbers. And that is the reason, Sabo is famous as NO.2. It certainly shows that he is one of the top officers of Revo Army, which is supported by the kind of strength he has shown.

But does being called as No.2 mean that Sabo is most powerful officer in charge after Monkey D Dragon.
I dont think so.
I think that Sabo is the 3rd ranked officer of Revo Army, with Dragon being the leader or better said the No.Zero. And there is another person/officer who is above Sabo & below Dragon. That unknown person might be the No.1 of Revo Army.
We have seen, Crocodile himself being the Mr.zero of Baroque Works. Since zero is the smallest whole number, it is safe to consider that Dragon might too be the No.zero of Revo army.

Similarly, Sabo has been compared to Ace, due various incients & facts like :
1.Ace fought with marine captain to save luffy & Sabo fought fujitora to save luffy.
2.Both theirs fight ended in a tie.
3.Ace was the 2nd division commander of WB pirates & Sabo is the No.2 of Revo Army.

Now, if we look the last point, we can consider Ace as No.2 of WB pirates. With Marco being the No.1 & WB the leader or No.zero.

Here’s the Hiearchy of 3 different Organizations.

[​IMG]
Considering all above facts i think that there is an Officer who is above Sabo. Probably Sabo is under him because he is still in-experienced & still has a long way to go .And it would be too soon to reveal the person who is under the Dragon according to me, so we might have to wait for some period before it is revealed.

So who do you think is the No.1 of the Revo Army ??
Here are few of my possibilities.
1.former No.1 could be Kuma.
2.Ivankov seems to be working with Dragon ,since very beginning, but doesnt seem that strong to be No.1
3.If Aokiji is a Revo now, he can be the No.1 of Revo army.Since he does seems strong enought to hold that position.
4.Unknown person, who is still to be introduced.

Thank you for reading, give your thoughts on it

THE DEVOTION FOR THE KING OF THE PIRATES

We all know that Roger Crew was disbanded and everyone was free of follow the way they want.
I put my eyes on the two apprentices of Roger; Buggy the Clown and [Akagami]Redhaired Shanks.

[​IMG]

At the start when Roger was about to set sail he doesn’t have ship and convince Rayleigh to join in his trip.

[​IMG]

This reveals one thing Roger and Reyleigh are from the East Blue.
This is an important fact since the East Blue is the weakest sea of the 4, and probably Roger knew something that only those who are “weak knows how is being weak” [I’ll explain this later] Roger was from Loguetown that means probably Roger go way back for all the East blue, searching for crewmates and set sail to Reverse Mountain.

At the start Roger and their crewmates navigate around the Four seas, Grand Line and New World for along 15 years and somehow they get out from the Grand Line and Return to the East Blue maybe for Roger Ilness, and enter from Reverse Mountain again, my reference is Crocus joins to the band and stay with Roger’s Crew for 3 or 4 years before they were disbanded.

In this point we know that Shanks and Buggy are apprentices in the Oro Jackson maybe they had at least 5 years or even more in the Ship that means they could be from the East Blue or from the New World or The Grand Line, I say these cause the look a little bit older than in other flashback.

Shanks and Buggy in the past

[​IMG]

Ups! wrong image sorry :hides:

Backstory why Buggy hates Shanks

[​IMG]

The proof maybe is in Chapter Zero were Crocus, Buggy, and Shanks are in the Ship during the war with Shiki.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

They look more mature, that means they could join 2 years before Crocus

[​IMG]

During The Battle of Edd War Buggy was crying but we can see that all the crew trust in Roger and his strengh [also in his Will]

This make me think that Buggy was kinda noble and he just worried for Roger and the crew; he also had fear for all the ship’s in front him.

After this Roger has become the King of Pirates.
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

Tears for the Pirate King

[​IMG]

At this Point Buggy and Shanks were Back in East Blue [They had pass through Raftel].

Buggy was so affected by Roger dead, as the weakest and “noble” pirate he was, he probably stay in East Blue as a sign of respect for Roger and whatever he do for him in the Past;
So he took the name Buggy the Clown because one of the things that Roger likes of him were his Clown appearance, so Buggy respect and love for Roger led him to live as the Pirate Clown and stay in the East Blue.

In the other side we have Shanks, even as a Yonkou he pass so much time in the East Blue, because this was the sea in wich Roger born; we know that Roger gave his Strawhat to Shanks, and maybe that’s the reason why Shanks had the desire of being in the East Blue; just to remind his Captain; and maybe someday found someone weak enough to lead the next generation.

Whatever Roger do for Buggy and Shanks left a mark in their hearts and they show their devoution and respect for his memory, those actions gave them will to face their respective life.

So the East Blue the weakest sea of all, this is too important because only those who know “what is being weak” knows how is “being hopeless” and they have the will to become stronger and not get blinded by his own powers; this means compassion.
Probably this is why Shanks gave Luffy his Strawhat.

THE DARK STRUGGLE OF SHANKS: THE PROMISE TO THE CAPTAIN

Hello once again everybody and welcome back to another theory for your entertainment. This time I shall be talking about the past of everyone’s favorite ginger, Red Hair Shanks.

However, despite how simple-minded he appears at first, Shanks is a complex person with some rather difficult to understand views; for example, he believes if two people share very different views, it is better they go their separate ways

Here is a simple timeline to help you all get the jest of this topic.

28 Years Ago- Roger is diagnosed with a terminal disease, Crocus joins Roger’s crew, Shanks is 11 years old,

27 Years Ago- The Battle of Edd War, Teach joins WB crew at age 13, Shanks is 12 years old

25 Years Ago- Roger solves the history, the world dubs Roger the Pirate King, The Roger Pirates are disbanded, Shanks is 14 years old

24 Years Ago- Roger turns himself in and is executed, Shanks is 15 years old

13 Years Ago- Shanks makes Fushia Village his base in East Blue, Shanks is 26 years old

12 Years Ago- Shanks loses his arm and gives Luffy his hat, Shanks is 27 years old

2 Years Ago- Shanks stop the War of Marinford and saves the WB pirate alliance, Shanks is 37 years old

The Present- Shanks is currently 39 years old

Gol D. Roger was diagnosed with a incurable disease 28 years ago and this is around the time Shanks joined his crew. One year after Roger went on his last voyage, he was attacked by Shiki’s fleet and we saw a young Shanks with Roger’s hat.

Roger was solving the lost history of the Void Century and he knew he’d never fulfill the promise of his predecessors because of his disease. Surely Roger world pass down his will to a younger generation right? He didn’t know how long he had left after all. In West Blue(where Shanks is from). Roger meet a young Shanks and saw himself in the young lad. Not knowing if he himself will be able to fully discover the history and fulfill an ancient promise, Roger passed his will(straw hat) onto Shanks believing he was “The One.”(borrowing this line from ramenboy). I take the fact that Roger gave his hat to Shanks as a big red( no pun intended) flag that Shanks is a ‘D’.
***********************************

Now this is things get interesting. As I said earlier, Roger gave his hat to Shanks believing that he was the one to solve the history and fulfill the promise, because he himself was going to die soon. As you know, Roger lasted longer than he thought and actually solved the history which means Shanks knows about the Void Century and Raftel’s location. Roger didn’t have enough time to wage war on the WG but shouldn’t Shanks who knows everything and is good at making friends try to fulfill the promise by now? Instead, he made no such attempt and passed the straw hat on to Luffy. Don’t you find that strange?

Simply put, Shanks believes that he has no such right to fulfill his captain’s dream. Why is that you ask? Because of Marshall D. Teach.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

We know that Teach gave Shanks that scar on his eye but the question is when he do it? 25 years ago, the Roger pirates disbanded and an entire year later, Roger gave himself up to the marines. It was during that year of absence that Shanks got the scar. At Roger’s execution 24 years ago, we couldn’t see Shanks’ eyes.

[​IMG]

Why did Roger disband his crew for a year? To say goodbye.

[​IMG]

Roger was willing to tell WB how tog et to Raftel and told him the history. Why? Because obviously trusted him and they were good friends. The Roger and WB pirates probably got along with each other during that year as well.

[​IMG]

During this year of absence, Shanks meet Marshall D. Teach(probably didn’t know he was a BB pirate) and they became good friends or even best friends. From what we’ve seen in OP, guys can become best friends in just a month(Norland and Ginger Shandian).

Know how Teach is synonymous with the number 3? 3 skulls on his jolly roger, 3 possible DFs, 3 names of the real life Blackbeard etc..? I think Shanks and Teach were a trio; there was a third person in Shanks and Teach’s group and it was the third person that was killed by Teach.

Roger was someone who would kill a man’s entire crew for insulting his friends and we know how Luffy is. Shanks is just like when it comes to friends.

[​IMG]

Marshall D. Teach is very ambitious and has a “join my crew or die” personality. Teach probably asked the 3rd person to become apart of his plans but he refused. Upset. Teach tried to kill the 3rd person but Shanks intervened. However, the 3rd person was killed anyways and it caused Shanks to unlock the Conqueror’s Haki. Shanks tried to avenge the 3rd person but was instead scarred by Teach and he escaped.

Shanks was unable to protect his friend and was betrayed by another. The event had a major effect on the mind of Shanks. How bad was it?

[​IMG]
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

When Shanks was thinking about Luffy’s lost, it seemed like he was speaking from experience.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

Shanks is supposed to be “The One” when he couldn’t protect a single friend? Shanks thought he was unworthy for such a task. This caused Roger’s plan to change. The original plan was for Roger to die peacefully and Shanks will inherit Roger’s will and fulfill the promise but because Shanks felt he didn’t deserve such a task, Roger decided to give himself up and start the Great Pirate Age.

Shanks then made a new promise to Roger: He will find “The One” who will inherit Roger’s will and fulfill the promise and Shanks was 27 years old, the promise was kept.

[​IMG] [​IMG]

Now lets fast forward to Shanks’ conversation with WB.

[​IMG]
[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

Both men were discussing how Blackbeard should be dealt with but it ended with both men exchanging blows. Obviously its because they both felt that dealing with Teach was their sole responsibility but that’s not the only reason.

Both men were trying to fulfill Roger’s will in their own way.

WB
-Knew the history of the Void Century
-Wanted to make Ace, Roger’s son, the pirate king
-Believed Teach’s actions was his fault since he lived under his nose for 25 years

Shanks
-Knows the history of the Void Century
-Wanted to make Luffy, Ace’s “Brother”, the pirate king
-Believed Teach’s actions was his fault since he failed to stop Teach 20+ years ago
-Shanks knew that if Teach attacked Ace, Luffy would go after BB as well and Shanks didn’t want that.

As you know, WB died but his “sons” were saved by Shanks who now protects the remaining WB pirates.

[​IMG]

Shanks DOES NOT want Luffy and BB to fight each other. Shanks strongly believes that dealing with the traitor Teach is his responsibility and the promise to his captain can only be fully realized when Luffy becomes the pirate king. Shanks knows that Luffy chooses his own path and fights his own battles but Marshall D. Teach is the sole person that Shanks will make sure Luffy never encounters.

*Theory by Vandenreich

MORE NAKAMA? AND WHAT ABOUT ALLIES?

To be honest, I’m still quite unsure about this, mainly because I am not sure I even want this to happen that way, however thinking about it made me come up with actually several reasons why the nakama we have now is all we’ll have ’till the end of the series.
I thought about this possibility for 2 reasons, the first is the Pirate Alliance, the second, well, is the concept of “Early One Piece”, most notably this:

Which brings us to the first reason. Already from the beginning of the series Oda has planned all the nakama he’ll have throughout the series, I must also note that unlike many other shonen, One Piece is actually planned (Though it turned out far longer than Oda assumed), but the fact is, Oda already know what’ll happen and the ending, he knew that from the beginning.
So here lies the first argument, if he didn’t plan more than 9 nakama (including Luffy), will he add more despite the fact that he already planned this much nakama from the beginning? Those 9 Strawhats have dreams which will all come to a conclusion in about the same time, and having another nakama, in a way, would require Oda to create an entire new plotline alongside the rest, however he didn’t plan this specific plotline from the beginning.
Now, but here you’ll say: “Except for Zoro, Luffy, Nami and Sanji who have relatively minor changes, the rest are not like the nakama we have now”, and that’s true, however the Strawhats we have now are not different people, only had an artistic evolution and ended up differently, for example, Usopp was supposed to be more like his father, Brook doesn’t have an Afro, Chopper looks more like realistic reindeer.
The ones with the most massive difference are Franky and Robin, Robin replaced a male character that was supposed to be a plant lover rather than history lover, and Franky replaced a midget carpenter, however, though different it’s clear they were still supposed to have a somewhat similar role despite the differences.

Now, here comes another element I thought about, if new nakamas will join in the New World they won’t be able to develop like the previous nakamas, while the current Strawhats, who joined before the timeskip, clearly had time to develop and become stronger, if someone joins now he/she will barely have the time to actually become stronger and develop as a character, I mean, think about it, because if I remember correctly one of the editors claimed that One Piece is about 70% done, only leaving 30%? And that’s after it doesn’t seem like anyone’s joining this arc? So it’s even less than 30% of the progress of the story?

And here comes another one, because it’s the New World, if one is a good warrior or helpful in any type of way, he/she is already in a group/crew, because unlike Paradise or East Blue this is already the top of the top of the One Piece World, and usually already features characters in their peak, and inside groups, which would make it more unlikely for them to join as individuals to the Strawhat crew and more likely joining as their entire group/crew the Strawhat Pirate Alliance.

So yeah, the fact that the is a Strawhat Pirate Alliance makes more nakama irrelevant in a way, because if someone will join, so is his/her entire group, and will lend their strength to Luffy.

Also, just making sure, that means that both we’ll have new characters and their entire group as “underling crews”, by the way, it’s not the “Strawhat crew”, in the way those are not divisions but separate crews who ally themselves with Luffy similarly to the way crews ally themselves with Yonkos.
Roger had an apparently small crew only in 1 ship, Oro Jackson, as seen in Edd War.
[​IMG]

Anyway, now for people saying that Luffy will decline, you are both right and wrong in my opinion, I think he’ll decline the concept of “being their father” but not their alliance, he’ll see them as equals, as allies while in reality they’ll serve him out of their own will.

Also, the Pirate Alliance also explains what happens with Jinbe, in his cover story, Wadatsumi joins him:
[​IMG]

So, now people though to themselves: Then both of them will join the Strawhats? And the answer is no. Don’t forget the fact that on top of that, Jinbe is also the captain of the Sun Pirates (Whose whereabout are currently unknown, but that’s his title anyway), so now it makes sense why Oda made him decline in the first place, so that he’ll join the alliance, and not the core crew, in Fishman Island the was no alliance so Oda had him to have “unfinished business” before joining.

Also, about the boy with the number 10:
[​IMG]

I think it’s foreshadowing the number of allied crews Luffy has, also let’s not forget Usopp’s Lieshadowing of 8000 underlings, so far we have 5600. So far we have 7, plus Jinbe it’s 8, I also believe Hancock will join after the Shichibukai system will be abolished, for the last one I’m still unsure, so let me hear who you think will join the alliance, I believe it might be Buggy, because both the Kuja and the Sun Pirates (About them I assume) don’t have a lot of people in them, and eventually we need to have 8000 so I believe Buggy, who has an entire organization under him will be the last one to join the alliance.

JEWELRY BONNEY (POSSIBLE) TRUE IDENTITY

Bonney_Pirates
Alright i’ve been pondering to this theory for quite a long time now and i think i’ve come to a reasonnable theory about Jewelry Bonney’s true identity.There have been many theories about her and mine is not fully original: because she joins many others in a certain way.

As we all know, Bonney’s Pink hair can remind us all of Laura from Thriller Bark. When she has parted ways from the SH she gave Nami a Vivre’ Card from her mother who’s a great pirate in the new world.
(yeah yeah we all know that ! Go straight to the point ! ><)
Knowing how Oda likes to create links between character we can all assume two thing :
– First Laura’s mom is the Yonkou Big mom (nothing new to learn here captain ! go on!
– Big Mom’s daughter are encouraged to travel the world by themselves and not under Big Mom’s mark (at least she did not seem to be forced to do anything but travelling back from the new world seeing how she got to water seven : p )

At this point most of us thought that Bonney was also Big Mom’s daughter due to the fact that she shares the same candy pink hair color and her insatiable appetite…

BUT (here’s the tricky part ^^ ), We all saw during the Shabondy’s ark that Bonney had a devil fruit

(similar to Ain’s unless Ain’s devil fruit is similar to Bonney’s?… Oh … the theory read what comes next ! )
Allowing her to change the age of her enemies (turning them into old people or babies ) but also changing her age at will (giving her a lolicon look ). So we can also think that her casual appearance may not be the one according to her real age (she’s older than she looks like) She seems like one of the wisest pirate between the supernovae : she saved Zoro from killing a Celestial Dragon but also holds a strong grudge against the Marines… She was also the only one to cry when learning about Ace and WB’s death and she then ran into BB’s crew on the burning island.

Then I saw another interesting theory : Bonney may be a former member of Gol D. Roger’s pirate crew due to her Name : Jewelry. Actually it’s brilliant ! The captain was Gold the second was Silver and the third most powerfull pirate was Jewelry (forming the three of them a monster trio )

What would happened if those two theories were actually partly true ? My theory is that Jewelry bonney was actually Charlotte Lilin’s Twin sister. they looked quite alike at the time but Jewelry’s fruit allowed her to lose a lot of weight. At some point she actually met Gol D. Roger looking for member to join his pirate Crew and she accepted leaving behind her sister

Together they may have lived great adventures. but when Roger died she decided to hide for some time until she decided to get back into business. With her devil fruit she was able to hide her true identity and have a fresh start.

But i can guess what your main argument against this theory will be : “Why isn’t she simply BIG MOM 3:) ? Well it’s quite simple if you’re up to date with the last chapter’s out ! We saw her react to Doflamingo’s defeat and Big Mom is currently eating desert on her main island while we’re talking actually and she wouldn’t thank the SH who just happened to defy her a few days ago.

My last argument will be that her link with Roger would also explain the Marine tracking her (by sending an admiral toward her (and BB’s crew ) if she just was a simple high bounty pirate they wouldn’t have send an army to get her she’s important ! and even tough they send her such a comitee we saw recently that she managed to escape and hide somewhere in the new world for two years !

Long story short (for the people who don’t like to read long theories ) : I think that Bonney is a former Roger’s pirate member (and was part of a similar monster Trio ) and also Big Mom’s sister. She hided from the marine by changing her age with her Devil fruit and decided to get sail once again (for an unknown reason)

So what do you people think about it :) ?

MONKEY D. DRAGON’S ORIGIN: THE CREATION OF THE REVOLUTIONARIES!

Hello once again everybody and welcome back to another theory for your entertainment. This time we shall dive into the origins of Monkey D. Dragon and the creation of the Revolutionary Army. This will talk about how Dragon meet Kuma, Ivankov and Dr. Vegapunk.

Before I start, I would first like to say that Monkey D. Dragon was NEVER an admiral. If he was, why is Dragon so mysterious and unknown even among the marines? Who could say that the Gorosei blacklisted him and erased his existence, but that still wouldn’t make sense becausepeople do not forget so easily. The existence of Avalo Pizzaro, Catarina Devon, Vasco Shot and San Juan Wolf were erased for years and what happened when they showed up in Marineford? Random fodder marines with one glance knew their names, epithets and the crimes they commented.

Alright. Obviously Dragon is apart of the Monkey D family, but he seems so different from his son and grandfather(still think he is a “moron” though).
[​IMG]

All three of them are from Goa country, which consist of Goa kingdom, Foosha Village and the Grey Terminal mountains. Like Luffy, Garp was raised in the mountains.
[​IMG]
Dragon however, was raised in the Goa kingdom with the nobles. Garp was poor so he lived in the mountains, but since he was a marine, he had the funds to get a house in Goa kingdom where Dragon was born, to ensure that his son and wife would have a good life.

Garp of course, regularly took Dragon to the mountains to train him to be a marine, and Dragon developed a sense of justice very early in life. Dragon periodically went to Grey Terminal trash heap, where he became friends with the commoners and learned the value of human life.

Seeing the difference between the nobles and commoners made Dragon upset. He believed that everyone should be equal and was disgusted with how the nobles treat the commoners like trash and kills them off without batting an eye.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

Dragon wanted to change Goa kingdom, but he didn’t have the power to do so. He didn’t want to become a marine because his father was a famous Vice Admiral who had little pull with the WG. Monkey D. Dragon joined the World Government itself or more specifically, Cipher Pol.

Dragon was “special” because he was the son of Garp and because was already very intelligent and strong(due to Garp’s training), he moved up the Cipher Pol’s like wildfire.

Dragon has always been curious about his D lineage, as even Garp has no idea what it meant. Dragon got really curious and confused because of this:
[​IMG]
The rivalry between Gol D. Roger and Monkey D. Garp.
Both men had ‘D’ in their name but according to Garp, they apparently come from different families and have no relation to each other.

While a member of Cipher Pol however, Dragon meet two people: Jaguar D. Saul and Dr. Vegapunk, who is also a ‘D’. Like Dragon, Saul was curious about his D lineage but he didn’t think too much about it. Vegapunk however, was very curius like Dragon. They became friends and Dragon was shocked to learn of the terrible experiments the WG make Vegapunk do. Despite that, two secretly worked together to find out more about their lineage.

Dragon always believed in moral justice, but his justice is very extreme just like Saul, who easily defected from the marines to do what he felt was right. Dragon time in Cipher Pol revealed quite a bit about the lies of the WG, but that is expected with a government system. Dragon’s disgust with the WG hit a boiling point when he was promoted to the same position as these guys:
[​IMG]
Cipher Pol Aegis 0.

As a member of CP0, Dragon worked directly under the Tenryubitto and Gorosei. CP0 specializes in cover ups, blackmail, lies and murder and Dragon had a front row seat to the Gorosei and Tenryubitto’s corruption. He thought Goa kingdom was bad, but nothing compared to the Tenryubittos and they controlled the world. Dragon knew that freedom wouldn’t be realized as long as the current WG exist, but he still tried to change the WG from the inside.

Dragon came to loguetown 24 years ago to witness the death of a follow D that he questioned whether he was good or bad. The WG obviously says he’s a bad guy but from Garp’s stories, Gol D. Roger was a good man.
[​IMG]

2 years after Roger was executed(22 years ago), Dragon was 100% convinced that he had no chance of changing the WG from the inside. The reason for that was because of the Ohara Massacre.

In this massacre, he learned from Kuzan that his friend Jaguar D. Saul was killed and that innocent refuges were slaughtered.
[​IMG]

CP9 was tasked with making sure that the massacre was a success. If CP9 was informed, so was CP0 and….
[​IMG]


Dragon overheard Clover’s speech. He knew that the WG was hiding something and it had to be destroyed. As long as the WG exist, there will be no freedom. Dragon defected from the WG but for the WG, he simply disappeared.

Dragon informed 2 people of his defection: Vegapunk and Kuzan. Vegapunk agreed with Dragon that a revolution was necessary and decided to remain in the WG as Dragon’s inside man, while Dragon carefully creates and expands his organization. Kuzan however, turned down the offer as he thought a revolution was too extreme and thought he could change the WG as a marine. Dragon never told his father because he’d knew Garp would try to stop him.

Now then over the past 22 years, Dragon has created the most dangerous organization that the WG has ever seen.

Vegapunk is a revolutionary spy in the WG.
[​IMG]

And Dragon’s left and right hand is Emperio Ivankov and Bartholomew Kuma.
[​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

They were with Dragon 12 years ago at Grey Terminal.
[​IMG]
So in the timespan of 10 years, Dragon recruited Kuma and Ivankov. Lets into more detail with Kuma and Ivankov’s recruitment.

[​IMG]

Ivankov was Dragon’s first revolutionary recruit. Reason I say this is because Ivankov seems to be the revolutionary who knows Dragon the best.
[​IMG]

They even love watering snails together.
[​IMG]

Now the question is, why did Ivankov join the revolutionaries? Well we need to recap on some things about Ivankov first.

Ivankov is the queen of Kamabakka Kingdom which translates to “Kingdom of Transvestites.”
[​IMG]

I really don’t think transvestites are treated equally in the OP world as many men reacted indifferently to them(much like in real life). In Impel Down, the guards shouted “Look at what they are wearing!”, “What the heck are they wearing!?” and “They are dressed to kill!”

Kamabakka Kingdom is a place for freedom; where people can be what they want to be without being judged. Dragon meet Ivankov on Kamabakka island and treated him and everyone else on the island like an equal. Not only that, Dragon probably saved saved Kamabakka kingdom from WG agents who tried to destroy it. Kamabakka kingdom is just as well known as Amazon Lily, and they are famous for their body enchancing cuisine. Ivankov most likely turned down an offer to become allies with the WG, so the agents tried to back at them.
[​IMG]

Anyways that’s just pure speculation but bottomline is that Dragon promised Ivankov to bring a world where everyone is free and Ivankov followed behind.

[​IMG]

Here is where things get interesting. Unlike Ivankov, it wasn’t easy for Dragon to get Kuma to join.
[​IMG]

What Ivankov said in Marineford implies that he and Kuma had a SERIOUS fight before. Not only that, Kuma also had a serious fight with Monkey D. Dragon.

Before I get into the fight between Kuma and Dragon, we must first understand Kuma. Obviously Kuma is a bear so lets look at what bears represent.

Bear is spirit keeper of the West, the place of darkness, maturity and good harvest. From this place, Grandfather Bear gives strength, introspection and knowledge.

Bears are active during the night and day. This symbolizes its connection with solar energy, that of strength and power, and lunar energy, that of intuition. It enhances and teaches those with this totem how to develop both within themselves.

Grandfather Bear is a solitary dweller and master of his domain. This teaches us the importance of independent thinking and to seek peace in quite meditation.

Bears are sensitive to Mother Nature’s cycles. They sleep long hours in the winter living on fat stored in their bodies. It teaches us how to go within and find the resources for survival and how to remain balanced amid change. This medicine is a reminder of the great circle of life and rebirth, renewal and fresh beginnings.

Bear is the embodiment of strength and is fierce to a threat on its lair. It is not wise to come between the mother bear and her cubs, teaching us ways to always protect those we love.

In Native American mythology, bears are known as the guardian spirits of the forest.

Smokey the Bear anyone?

Also, take a look at Kuma as a kid and that book he has. It says “Ninokin.”
[​IMG]

It refers to Ninomiya Sontoku.
[​IMG]
Ninomiya was a prominent agricultural leader, moralist and economist.

Bartholomew Kuma HATED the WG.
[​IMG]

And that’s because the WG burned down Kuma’s village in the forest and it was no accident. Helping his people rebuild, Kuma was enraged and decided to become his people’s protector with his Paw Paw Fruit. Any trespasser would get blown away by Kuma.

Of course, Dragon and Ivankov came to the burned down forest and Kuma attacked. Dragon, who wanted to help the poor villagers, thought Kuma was responsible so he ordered Ivankov to hold off Kuma while he tended to the people. Dragon learned the truth from the citizens but before he could go anything, Kuma once again attacked him but he was able of emerge victorious.

Dragon told Kuma of his dream to destroy the WG and bring freedom to the world, but Kuma didn’t believe Dragon as he was a former WG agent. In order to be sure that Dragon was sincere, Kuma had a suggestion: when his village and forest was being burned down, Kuma repelled the pain of all the suffering villagers into a gigantic air bubble, and if Dragon can shoulder the pain of his people, Kuma will join the revolution.

Ivankov of course thought it as outrageous, but Dragon went for it. Much to the shock of Kuma and Ivankov, Dragon survived. This is where Ivankov witnessed Dragon’s inhuman vitality.

[​IMG]

Dragon surviving that much pain was a miracle.
[​IMG]

With hope that true freedom can be achieved for his people, Kuma joined the revolutionaries and became Dragon’s most loyal friend.

8 years ago, Dragon’s face became known to the world as revolutionary.
[​IMG]

It was 12 years ago that Dragon saved the commoners of Goa kingdom.
[​IMG]

12 years ago, the Revolutionary Army became active, targeting kingdoms to recruit suffering citizens who wanted freedom. However, during one of his expeditions, there was a big incident involving the marines.

[​IMG]

I’m speculating, but I say Dragon had a run-in with the marines(with Doberman and Akainu present) and showcased his Conqueror’s Haki to escape a kingdom with new revolutionaries in hand. Dragon’s unnatural CoC brought forth a storm and blew away a marine fleet.
[​IMG]

The Gorosei feared this man as they recognized his description. Monkey D. Dragon became the most wanted man in the world do to him knowing about the WG corruption from being CP0 agent, being Garp’s son, being a D, him looking for the poneglyhs and leading an organization that directly opposes the WG and it will continue to grow until the WG falls.

In the future, Dragon will recruit…

Koshiro. He is not a full-fledge Rev yet, but he is an ally. He gave the revs food after their time in Goa kingdom.
[​IMG]

X. Drake. A marine turned pirate to pursue his own justice. Drake joined Kaidou because he wants to severe the WGs weapon shipment with the yonkou and take the said yonkou down.
[​IMG]

CP9. They are in an alliance with Drake and believe that pirates will continue to run amok as long as the current WG exist.
[​IMG]

Jewelry Bonney
. Bonney hates the WG and all of her reasons for becoming a pirate will soon be gone.
[​IMG]

Crocodile. The Croc will lose all ambition to find ancient weapons and will want to exact revenge on the WG for what they did to him.
[​IMG]

Smoker. Smoker never held the WG in high esteem and his disgust will hit a boiling point when the WG tires to execute Tashigi
[​IMG]
Kuzan. Kuzan is not a revolutionary yet but he will join once Akainu and WG executes the WG Takeover.

THE 7 LUCKY GODS OF FORTUNE

Welcome back to a quick theory for your entertainment.

Some time ago, I stumbled upon the 7 Seven Lucky Gods of Fortune and the Heavenly Kings. Surprisingly, they bare some similarities to One Piece characters and I believe they were one of the inspirations for the said characters.

Hotei is the fat and happy god of abundance and good health.
[​IMG]

This is Monkey D. Garp
[​IMG]

Fukurokuji is the god of happiness, wealth and longevity.
[​IMG]

This is Don Chinjao and his design is even based off Fukurokuji.
[​IMG]

Jurojin is the god of long life. He is also known as the Old Man of the South Pole and is often mistaken as Fukurokuji.
[​IMG]

This is Dr. Vegapunk(Vegapunk is from a winter island and most likely has a long head…no jokes please)
[​IMG]

Benzaiten is the goddess knowledge, art and beauty.
[​IMG]

This is Tsuru.
[​IMG]

Daikokuten is the god of wealth, commerce and trade. He is also the god of thieves. Daikokuten is often paired with the lucky god Ebisu.
[​IMG]

This is Scopper Gaban. Gaban means “thief” or “to steal” and was shown with someone we all know.
[​IMG]

Ebisu is the god of fishers and merchants. He is often paired with the lucky god Daikokuten.
[​IMG]

This is Crocus.
[​IMG]

Bishamonten is the god of warriors. Bishamonten is also called Tamonten “listening to many teachings” because he is seen as the guardian of the places where the Buddha preaches. He was also a punisher of evildoers – a view that is at odds with the more pacifist Buddhist king.
[​IMG]

This is Silvers Rayleigh. In contrast to the lovable Roger(the people that knw him), Rayleigh was the more serious “Dark King” and “Lord of the Underworld.”
[​IMG]

Bishamonten was also one of the 4 Heavenly Kings.

Bishamonten as a heavenly king is called “Virupaksa.”

Virupaksa which means “he who sees all”, his symbolic weapon is a snake or red cord that is representative of a dragon. As the eye in the sky, he sees people who do not believe in Buddhism and converts them.
[​IMG]

This is 1oo Beast Kaidou.
[​IMG]

Vaisravana means “he who hears all.”
[​IMG]

This is Gol D. Roger.
[​IMG]

Virudhaka means “he who causes to grow” and causes the good growth of roots.
[​IMG]

This is Sengoku(praying to Buddha bring health and growth to crops).
[​IMG]

Dhrtarastra means “he who upholds the realm.” He is harmonious and compassionate and protects all beings. Uses his music to convert others to Buddhism.
[​IMG]

This is Edward Newgate.

MONKEY D. DRAGON’S TRUE POWER; FEAR OF THE CONQUEROR’S HAKI

In this theory I shall talk about the true strength of Monkey D. Dragon. However, I cant talk about Dragon without discussing the Conqueror’s Haki.

First of all, we know Dragon has his own fighting style as seen with Sabo:
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

But once again, the Conqueror’s Haki is what makes Dragon truly fearsome. Dragon also has no devil fruit but for those who think he odes, do NOT be discouraged. You’ll see why later on.

Now lets get into what CoC is and what Dragon’s(and others) real abilities are.
[​IMG]

Conqueror’s Haki is the ability to use your willpower as a weapon. It is truly the most powerful ability in One Piece and its even more powerful than the Ancient Weapons.

There are multiple levels to Conqueror’s Haki can it can be broken down into 5 simple levels.


Level 1: Using your will to conquer the will of others
.

The most simplest and well known example of Conqueror’s Haki. It is very effective against fodder.
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

However, contrary to popular belief, it is still useful against those with good willpower.
[​IMG]
Smoker of all people began to sweat against Hancock’s CoC. It depends on how strong your CoC is compared to the will of your target. Replace Hancock with Rayleigh or Shanks, Smoker might have had a worse reaction.


Level 2: Conquering the Elements

As simple as it sounds. Dragon used his CoC to conqueror the fir of Gray Terminal to give the people a path to escape.
[​IMG]

Doflamingo was completely incased in Kuzan’s ice but managed to use his CoC to conquer the ice and break free.
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

This level can also be applied to objects.
[​IMG]

Level 3: Conquering the Weather

The Cnqueror’s Haki has a certain radius. The stronger the will, the more range one’s CoC has and it can affect and manipulate the environment. That storm that saved Roger and destroyed Shiki’s fleet was because of Roger’s CoC and it is how Dragon summoned lightning to save Luffy.
[​IMG]


Level 4: Conquering yourself.

One with the Conqueror’s Haki can manifest his will/spirit in physical form. Your personal traits and characteristics that describe will become a physical weapon per say.

Shanks has shown that Conqueror’s Haki can cause PHYSICAL damage to objects.
[​IMG]

Now then, there is ALOT more to Level 4 Conqueror’s Haki. Everyone’s spirit is different and can be represented by different things. Some spirits are like tigers, some are like ice and others can even be cocaine. Of course, only those with the Conqueror’s Haki can achieve this, but it can be done by those who haven’t unlocked it yet. The willpower of a person must very strong in order to achieve this feat though.

Zoro spirit in physical form is Asura.
[​IMG]

Sanji’s spirit in physical form is Diable Jambe. Oda said that Sanji doesn’t get burned because his spirit burns hotter.
[​IMG]

Shanks’ spirit in physical form is red lightning.
[​IMG]

Kaidou may be a dragon zoan but his spirit in physical form may be a Typhon. The Typhon is the father of beasts and Kaidou leads an army of beasts.
[​IMG]

Level 5: Conquering Reality

The highest level of Conqueror Haki. Only 2 people have achieved this form of CoC aside from Dragon. This level can only be achieved by those who are a direct descendant of D.
[​IMG][​IMG]

The Conqueror’s Haki can conqueror ANYTHING and that includes time, space, light and dark. The concept of reality itself bends to the will of the conqueror.

The distortion of reality, time and space is synonymous with air cracking.
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

A Conqueror’s Haki clash is the sudden impact of two conqueror spirits and those combined spirits is strong enough to distort time and space for a short time.
*************************

Now to avoid any confusion, a person can master level 1,2 and 4 but could still need work for level 3 for example. Some people can only level up so far not matter how much they try. Don Chinjao for example may be unable to use level 2 or 3.

***************************

Of course you know, Luffy will be the greatest Conqueror of them all.
[​IMG]

Those with the Conqueror’s Haki are very common in the New World and it is the only way to climb to the top.
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

However, those with the Conqueror’s Haki are the least of Luffy’s worries.
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

“Blackbeard” Marshall D. Teach cannot use haki because of the Yami Yami no mi. Despite that, he can make sure that his opponents cannot use haki either.

The Darkness Fruit consumes absolutely everything.
[​IMG]

We know Teach can neutralize devil fruit powers via physical contact.
[​IMG]

But with his devil fruit awakening, he can neutralize devil fruits and haki without needing physical contact.
[​IMG]

The only thing that can save Luffy is his Conqueror’s Haki conquering Teach’s darkness.
[​IMG]
************************************

Now then, what about Monkey D. Dragon?
[​IMG]

As I implied earler, Dragon’s Conqueror’s Haki is probably the strongest alive. It is the main reason why he is the most wanted man.
[​IMG]

Dragon’s conqueror’s haki(along with Shanks and Roger) is so strong that he can cause the air to crack without clashing with anyone.

As for Dragon’s spirit in physical form, it is an actual dragon.
[​IMG]

With his CoC, Dragon can manipulate the weather and become a dragon. This is why I believe Dragon has no DF because he doesn’t need one. He is already a dragon in a literal sense. Dragon’s body wont deform and turn into a dragon itself if that’s what your thinking. Just his spirit will turn into a dragon behind or above him like an aura.

This brings up a few questions though….what are CoC in physical forms of Roger?
