The Devil Fruit eaten by Dragon – Myth & Fact

monkey-d-dragon-fictional-characters-photo-u1

Myth: It is obvious by the way he said “Wind Blast” back in Loguetown that Dragon has a wind Devil Fruit. Or maybe, Dragon ate a Devil Fruit that allows him to manipulate the weather. Why do you think a lightning bolt saved Luffy from being killed by Buggy? And what about the rain, when Dragon arrives at Loguetown?

Fact: Dragon did not say “Wind blast” in the manga, it was added in the anime. The original manga does not give any indication that Dragon had any effect on the weather other than being around when the storm hit. We do not know his power, although it is always a possibility. The speculation was re-invigorated when a rather powerful and convenient wind blast created a path to the ocean and the Revolutionaries during the fire of Gray Terminal, with some fans speculating the two instances were foreshadowing, but again there is no proof that this is correct.

A NEW DEVELOPMENT: THE BATTLE OF FOUR ARMIES

Alright, I would like to premise this theory first with a statement that I always thought that Luffy and his allies would ultimately clash with the World Government and the Marines at the final war (excluding the final battle with Blackbeard)

But, some developments happened along the way and kinda made me think of possibilities so, I would get this out of the way immediately:

The Marines (at least some of them) would breakaway from the World Government and execute a Coup d’Etat.

Now this faction would be very different from the Revolutionaries.

The Revolutionaries wanted to overthrow the government and got no problem affiliating themselves with outside forces like Pirates.

But the Breakaway Marines (we will refer to them as X-Marines) are the guys who still detest pirates, the same way they detest the World Government.

There are several instances in the manga why this thought came to my mind.

First is the apparent disappointment of the Fleet Admiral over the decision of the World Government.

Second is the desire of Admiral Fujitora to defy the government privateers called “Shichibukai” system and his obvious disdain for the World Government.

Now, the other reasons I have are just a speculations, but I believe I got good grounds for it..currently in Zou arc, some parts of Sanji’s backstory had been revealed, and it was said that this “Vinsmoke Family”, which Sanji is a relative of, leads a group called “Warhouse / Germa Double Six”

Now with the involvement of Capone “Gang” Bege, who obviously had been inspired from Al Capone, a famous Mafia Leader, it would be fair to assume that Capone was hired to bring the news to Sanji by another Mafia Group.

Which is kinda confirmed in a way because they are said to be a “Family of Assassins”, well either way, moving on….

With “Germa 66” name as well, I would assume that Oda used this name in order to reference a group/organization from the movie “Kill Bill”, by Quentin Tarantino (Oda loves Tarantino Films)

The Crazy 88, which is led by a Mafia Leader / Underworld Leader.

(wouldnt be surprised if the Vinsmokes hide their faces like this to hide the eyebrows. LOL.)

I’ll dive into this topic in another theory (and Germa 66 connection to a card game), but lets just say, the head of Vinsmoke Family lured Sanji into doing what he wants by using someone Sanji loves as a bait.

The point i’m trying to make (which is kinda confusing coz I rambled on) is that the Vinsmoke Family is a Mafia Family.

I’ll just get straight to the point.

Each of the Gorosei leads their own organizations, so that makes it 5 organizations including the Germa 66 and Cipher Pol.

Simply said, in the game of chess, those 5 organizations are the real “guys” of the World Government.

The Marines?: Pawns, disposable pawns who always get fronted in battle and dont know the real “identities” of the World Government, especially the Gorosei.

So I believe some Marines would breakaway from the World Government and start a new faction.

So in the final war, we have:

1. The Strawhat Pirates and its Grand Fleet.
2. The Blackbeard Pirates and its Grand Fleet.
3. The World Government (Science Division, Germa 66, Cipher Pol etc.)
4. X-Marines.

And yes, I don’t believe the Red Hair Pirates and the Revolutionaries would be there for the Final War…

Sabo trained under Monkey D. Dragon!

Sabo was 10 years old when Dragon took him under his wing. When he joined the Revolutionary Army, he had already accepted their ideals. So Hack, who was the training instructor for orphans, decided to teach Sabo as well. But unfortunately Sabo was already so strong, that there wasn’t anything Hack could teach him.. Finally, Sabo ended up taking the training from Dragon himself, and kept on becoming stronger and stronger along the years.

When Sabo was 13 years old, Koala (age 14) joined the Revolutionary Army. Hack and Koala took good care of Sabo and they often undertook missions as a team.

Oda Foreshadowed Sabo Theory

We know that Oda like to foreshadow things and has done so a lot of times, so I wouldn’t be surprised if this was also the case.

In One Piece chapters 98 and 99, we can notice a figure similar to Sabo in the crowd. Oda is very careful while drawing crowd-scenes and likes to add different kinds of characters (like joke characters and characters we already had in the story like Mr.3). Could this really be Sabo in the crowd?

okokok

Looking back at the chapter, it’s not impossible since that was the first time Dragon appeared and we can suppose that Sabo was with Dragon. Also, regarding his appearance (clothes and height), it’s also possible since it didn’t happen that long ago so he surely didn’t change much just like Luffy and Ace.

And another thing for those who may believe that it was too early for foreshadowing and that Oda didn’t even plan to make this character at that time: I believe that Oda already had something in his head at that time. He even introduced Dragon at that time, so he may have had a faint idea or concept for Luffy’s story. Therefore, I think that there is a possibility of this character being Sabo.

So what are your thoughts?

MONKEY D. DRAGON’S MYTHICAL DF POWER AND THE ONEPIECE WORLD

So theres a lot of theories to what kind of power does Dragon have, but they all fail for me and then i saw this. A Philippine Mythology about a dragon called “Bakunawa” first lets see what wiki says about it.

[​IMG]

It appears as a giant sea serpent with a mouth the size of a lake, a red tongue, whiskers, gills, small wires at its sides, and two sets of wings, one is large and ash-gray while the other is small and is found further down its body.

Myth#1
Tales about the Bakunawa say that it is the cause of eclipses. During ancient times, Filipinos believe that there are seven moons created by Bathala (Gods) to light up the sky. The Bakunawa, amazed by their beauty, would rise from the ocean and swallow the moons whole, angering Bathala and causing them to be mortal enemies.

To keep the moons from completely being swallowed by the Bakunawa, ancient Filipinos would go out of their homes with pans and pots, and would make noise in order to scare the Bakunawa into spitting out the moon back into the sky. Some of the people in the villages would play soothing sounds with their musical instruments, in hopes that the dragon would fall into a deep sleep. Thus, the brave men of the village hoped that while the dragon was hypnotized by the musical sounds they could somehow slay the dragon. Although the dragon was known as a “moon eater” it was also known as a “man eater”.

Other tales tell that the Bakunawa has a sister in the form of a sea turtle. The sea turtle would visit a certain island in the Philippines in order to lay its eggs. However, locals soon discovered that every time the sea turtle went to shore, the water seemed to follow her, thus reducing the island’s size. Worried that their island would eventually disappear, the locals killed the sea turtle.

When the Bakunawa found out about this, it arose from the sea and ate the moon. The people were afraid so they prayed to Bathala to punish the creature. Bathala refused but instead told them to bang some pots and pans in order to disturb the serpent. The moon is then regurgitated while the Bakunawa disappeared, never to be seen again.

The island where the sea turtle lays its eggs is said to exist today. Some sources say that the island might just be one of the Turtle Islands.

Myth#2

Others tell how the Bakunawa fell in love with a human girl in one of the native tribes. The head of the tribe found out about their affair and had their house burned to ashes. The Bakunawa, finding out about this, became immersed in anger and tried to take revenge by eating all the 7 moons. When the Bakunawa was about to eat the last one, Bathala took action and punished the Bakunawa by banishing it from its home away from the sea. It also tells that the reason of the eclipses is how the Bakunawa is trying to come back to its home and deceased family.

Some Filipino elders Bakunawa is a moving isle with communities mounted at the back, it is said to believe that has 2 classification the flying Bakunawa and the land Bakunawa.

My thoughts to what connection the bakunawa had to do with dragon and the onepiece world#

“Tales about the Bakunawa say that it is the cause of eclipses. During ancient times, Filipinos believe that there are seven moons created by Bathala (Gods) to light up the sky. The Bakunawa, amazed by their beauty, would rise from the ocean and swallow the moons whole, angering Bathala (Gods)and causing them to be mortal enemies.”

1. In Onepiece world it was showed that there are actually only 6 planets in Onepiece but even though it was only 6 its still closed to the myth.

2.What if Oda didnt really connected it to the planets? What if its actually representing the 7 Warlords- Seven Moons? And Monkey D. Dragon is the chosen one to overthrew the warlord treaty not just that the whole world goverment.

3. “Bathala” which means Gods in english is actualy referring to the Gorosei?

“Other tales tell that the Bakunawa has a sister in the form of a sea turtle. The sea turtle would visit a certain island in the Philippines in order to lay its eggs. However, locals soon discovered that every time the sea turtle went to shore, the water seemed to follow her, thus reducing the island’s size.

Bathala refused but instead told them to bang some pots and pans in order to disturb the serpent. The moon is then regurgitated while the Bakunawa disappeared, never to be seen again.”

1. What if for some reason how the locals killed the sea turtle (which is bakunawa’s sister) in Onepiece World Monkey D.Dragon sister… Was with the help of Gorosei? Because how can the locals kill a huge island turtle? Unless they had a devine protection from the gods.

2. The reason why Monkey D. Dragon probably wants to overthrow the world goverment is because of her sister?

Myth#2

“Others tell how the Bakunawa fell in love with a human girl in one of the native tribes. The head of the tribe found out about their affair and had their house burned to ashes.

[Others tell how the Bakunawa fell in love with a human girl in one of the native tribes. The head of the tribe found out about their affair and had their house burned to ashes. The Bakunawa, finding out about this, became immersed in anger and tried to take revenge by eating all the 7 moons. When the Bakunawa was about to eat the last one] 1. What if Dragon fell in love to luffy’s mom but for some reasons was killed by the World Goverment for some reason. Which made Dragon awakened and declared war to the world goverment head on.

[The Bakunawa, finding out about this, became immersed in anger and tried to take revenge by eating all the 7 moons.

Dragon will eventually weakens the world goverment but in the end when the Gorosei starts to move themselves to fight Dragon, he will eventually gets defeated?

[Some Filipino elders Bakunawa is a moving isle with communities mounted at the back, it is said to believe that has 2 classification the flying Bakunawa and the land bakunawa” ] 3. Monkey D. Dragon actually have 2 or more forms when he uses his df? Air type, land type, or both

SABO: THE INVISIBLE FLAME

[​IMG]

Not Long ago I Found out that Flames and Fires can be invisible(as if the visible ones weren’t trouble enough) and the first thing that came to mind was The Mera-Mera No Mi. Imagine How scary the fruit might be for Sabo’s enemies if they knew about this power. Being Fried to death by something they couldn’t see.

Now, going into the How, let’s start by learning more about Fire. We’ll have our Good Friend Captain Slow Tell us What Fire is.

There are many types of Flames possible, Everything from the Classic Red to Blue.
One of such is A flame that bears no color and that is the Methanol Fire.

Now what i Methanol? Methanol is a alchol just like Ethanol, but unlike Ethanol, it is Toxic to Humans, so drinking it is in fact not a very good idea.

Now, as we know, Fire Needs 3 Things to Work: Heat, Fuel & Oxygen.
So with Organic material for Fuel, we will get Red flames and with Methanol as Fuel, we’ll get invisible Flames.
But we also know that a Fire can be Boosted and made to last longer when materials are added to the Pyre. Like when you Splash gasoline on A Bonfire and then having to explain to the Police Officer and Fireman how you were able to Burn down The Entire Forest the Day Later.
Meaning that we can make the fire Stronger and more Dangerous then what it used to be.
So, if Sabo were to be capable of Somehow getting his hands on Methanol, he could boost himself up and Turn Invisible. (Or since he is Fire Incarnate, he could somehow get his Fruit to Drain the Right Chemical Elements from the surroundings so the he doesn’t need to carry around Fuel to get the effects to work.)

This is a Powerup that would not just be good for combat but for Covert Missions as well. He could sneak in and out of Heavily Guarded Buildings. He could Take care of Enemies without being seen by quite easily Blasting them with A “Fire-Fist” (Or whatever Sabo would call it now. :p ) And disposing of them, their fellow Friends would not understand as to why he was rolling on the floor and would eventually tangle themselves with him/her and start rolling around themselves( a bit of a chain reaction).
Methanol Flames do not Produce smoke, so if he were to Lit a building on fire, no one on would really know, as the Houses do not have Vocal Chords an therefore Don’t Scream. (At least from a Visual Standpoint…that is until the building where to start crumbling down.)
There would obviously be drawbacks.
Methanol Fires can be killed with Water, so if someone had A Bucket of Water, he could easily take the Chameleon powers away if he were to hit.
And there would more then likely be some kind of smell that could be picked up easily by someone with a keen sense of smell.
