BIG MOM HAS THE SPIDER DEVIL FRUIT

Here’s another one for ya guys: Big Mom could have the Spider Spider Fruit.

[​IMG]

This whole Idea started from the fact that CHARLOTTE’S Web is about a spider that has the same name as BIG MOM. Then I started thinking and researching on spiders more and found some interesting connections. Let me show you them:

[​IMG]
Spiders can lay more than 500 eggs.
-good reason why Big Mom has 35 daughters

Spiders eat insects but do not eat plants
-Big Mom, since she has massive power as a Yonko, might see humans as “insects”. And she doesnt eat “vegetables(plants)”, only sweets.

Interesting enough, i found out that female spiders eat their mates even while mating.
-It Explains why she eats her own kind. Humans.

Spiders can use VENOM
-Big Mom’s nasty ass saliva could be mixed with the venom and acid in her body. So that stuff is probably DEADLY. Watch out for the big mom. All she has to do is drool on you and you’re dead. A YONKO’s power.

Now I didnt say anything about “webs”. I just said that she has the “spider” fruit because I really don’t want her to be another doflamingo.

I don’t know much about card games, but everyone that has owned a windows xp should know the game, Spider Solitaire.
-Oda seems to be using card games in the story now. Maybe Big Mom could’ve came from this. Who knows?

Anyways, thanks for reading. Please tell me what you think down below.

ROGER’S 4 RED PONEGLYPHS: BIG MAM, KAIDOU AND THE WANO SHOGUN

We learned five things in the last chapter:

1) There are 4 Poneglyphs
2) The 4 Poneglyphs together shows the location to Raftel
2) Kaidou and Big Mam each has a poneglyph
3) The Kozuki clan created the Poneglyphs
4) Oden Kozuki, the father of Momonosuke, was a member of Gol D. Roger’s crew
5) Oden Kozuki was executed by Kaidou and the Shogun of Wano.

How is all of this connected? I’ll get straight to the point like I always do.

It was said that the 4 yonkou were the ones closest to One Piece and it seems that was stated in a literal sense. WB and Shanks knows how to get to Raftel so the Red Poneglyphs are “worthless” and Kaidou and Big Mam each has one. Shanks does NOT have a red poneglyph.

Kaidou stole a red poneglyph and Big Mam was ENTRUSTED with another by Roger himself. I’m not joking.
***************

The 4 Red Poneglyphs

Oden Kozuki was a member of the Roger Pirates so of course he knows the history of the Void Century. With the new info that it was the Kozuki who made the Poneglyphs, it is blatantly apparent that Wano fought along side the Ancient Kingdom.

As we know, the AK, which includes Wano, was defeated with Wano itself being split in two and half of it siding with the 20 Kingdoms, giving rise to the marines’ swordsmanship training and the Bald Gorosei.

Being one of the AK’s strongest allies, Wano or just the Kouzuki clan, made the poneglyphs and 4 red ones detailing how to get to Raftel and they were given to 4 ally nations: Elbaf, an unknown place, Zou and of course Wano. I think the last red poneglyph is in Elbaf.

The 4 red poneglyphs show the location to Raftel when the 4 of them are deciphered meaning, Gol D Roger used the Voice of All Things to follow its guidance leading him to Raftel, implying that the red poneglyphs are not in the WG’s hands.

[​IMG]

Roger’s crew scattered after Raftel was discovered and one of the red poneglyphs ending up in the protection a former Roger Pirate or ally: Big Mam.
**************

Kaidou, Wano and the Red Poneglyph

Why would the Shogun of Wano joined Kaidou and murder Oden Kozuki? Because Oden was deemed a traitor.

Wano used to be under the protection of WB(after he saved it from Kaidou) but after the death of WB, Kaidou returned. This time however, things would be different. Why? Because Oden Kozuki told the Wano Shogun some info of the Void Century and I believe they were trusted friends.

Like the other Roger pirates, Oden was awaiting Roger’s successor but when Oden told his friend the Shogun about the history, the Shogun was pissed. Not only was the pissed upset at what he heard, he was filled with greed and wanted to more. The Shogun of Wano wanted a war; a war where Wano can get its revenge on this world of lies and a sense of greed for getting ultimate power.

Oden was of course against the Shogun’s irrational behavior but there was someone invading them that shared the shogun’s ideals:

100 Beast Kaidou

Kaidou thinks the world is hollow and should perish. He wants to engulf the world in the greatest war ever and the Shogun had similar motives(also, Kaidou’s wanting to commit suicide for his failures is similar to samurai committing suicide when shamed). Things got worse when the Shogun sided with Kaidou and told the beast what he knew. Yes people…Kaidou knows some of the history too. He knows what the Shogun knows. This made Kaidou want the Red Poneglyph by any means thanks to Whitebeard himself.

[​IMG]

Kaidou recalled that WB said that whoever finds the OP would cause the world to be engulfed in a war and with the Red Poneglyph that is a key to Raftel’s location is in his possession, he goal is one step closer.

However, Kaidou can’t do a thing with the Kozuki clan. The Shogun and Kaidou thinks the members of the Kozuki clan(Momo, Kinemon, Kajnuro and Raizou) can somehow decipher the red poneglyph. This is one for the reasons the fled Wano for Zou and also how Kaidou knew to send Jack specifically to Zou. Both Kaiodu and the Shogun want to know what the red poneglyphs says.

For a second scenario, the shogun could just be a coward and decided to join the winning side.
*************

Big Mam, Roger and the Red Poneglyph

First of all, how does Nekomunashi know that Big Mam has a red poneglyph?

I think Big Mam was a former member or at least an ally of the Roger Pirates. Why? A few reasons…

In previous theories, I came to the conclusion that the Ancient Kingdom and the D clan is based off South America or at least, the mythical cities of South America.

Big Mam also has connections to WB who was a friend of Zou and Wano.

Nothing concrete, I this is the reason why I think Big Mam was either entrusted with or was able to get her hands a Red Poneglyph. I also think that this is the reason Germa 66 are going business with her; they want that poneglyph. It also increase the chances of Big Mam becoming an ally of Luffy since he seemingly has Kaidou AND half of Wano after his head.
******************

-Roger dies
-Kaidou invades Wano
-WB(who Roger told everything about Raftel), chased Kaidou away to Wano his territory.
-Big Mam gets her hands on a Ted Poneglyph
-WB dies and Kaidou returns to Wano
-Big Mam makes deals with Germa 66 over the Red Poneglyph
-The Shogun sides with Kaidou and tries to froce the Kozuki to decipher the red poneglyph
-Oden dies(with a smile? a ‘D’)? to let his son and retainers escape
-The Kozuki clan flee to Zou for assistance and shelter
-Jack arrives at Zou to retrieve Raizou

D Means…

will of d

1. Myth: Dragon appeared in Loguetown and Luffy was able to hear the dragon talking in the Apis Arc. The D must mean DRAGON.

Fact: The Warship Island Arc was not canon. Therefore everything in it (except for a few things like the Calm Belt information) was not written in the manga by Oda. This rumor was originally created by a popular anime blogger who took a wild guess after watching the arc. Due to the popularity of said blog, others also pondered on the idea (though some fans came to this meaning on their own accord). However, it has been proven Dragon has an important plot role.

2. Myth: It is the first letter of the civilization name.

Fact: We do not know what the D. means at the moment. This comes from the significant actions of the World Government to stop Clover saying the name.

3. Myth: It is not a D it is part of a smiley! (example: :-D). Also, every D character that appeared in the series has smiled (even Portgas D. Rouge).

Fact: This one stems from the act of smiling upon death.

4. Myth: It is the name of the royal family of the lost civilization or a clan within it.

Fact: We do not know anything about their culture or if they even had a royal family.

5. Myth: D. means “Devil”.

Fact: This one is a nod to Devil Fruits. Rosinante did however state that those with the D. are God’s natural enemy, which is what a devil is conveyed as.

6. Myth: It means “Damashii”.

Fact: This one is linked to the talk of spirits and “will” throughout the series.

7. Myth: It is half a circle.

Fact: This one comes from “One Piece”, the speculation is that the D. is half a circle or pattern/symbol. In other words, acquiring Roger’s treasure will result in the symbol becoming “One Piece” again.

8. Myth: It means “Danger”. One of the Gorosei said so in Post-War Arc!

Fact: One of the elders really said that, but that’s due to the translation “D always means danger”, meaning that all of the people with D on their name were dangerous people.

9. Myth: It is given to those who can start a new era. Such as Roger starting a new age of pirates, and Blackbeards’s betrayal and Ace’s capture leading up to the Marineford War.

Fact: Portgas D. Rouge’s only (confirmed) significant act in life was giving birth to Ace.

KOUZUKI FAMILY’S LINKS WITH THE ANCIENT KINGDOM

Recently we were introduced to the Kougetsu family, which was re-named the “Kouzuki” family.

Kou + Getsu = Deep Red/Crimson + Moon

Kou + Zuki = Light + Moon

However, with deeper searches, I found out that Kou also means “Scarlet”:

Kou + Zuki = Scarlet/Light + Moon

 

Notice how Kouzuki/Kougetsu are both associated with the Moon.

The Red Poneglyph & The Kouzuki Family Crest

[IMG]

Seeing as how Kouzuki can mean “Scarlet Moon”, and scarlet is a deep red colour, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kouzuki family were the ones who were involved with the creation/placing of the Red Poneglyph in Zou.

If this were true, then it would mean that they had strong links with the Ancient Kingdom.

Interestingly, the colour red is usually affiliated with happiness in Japanese culture, unlike Western culture where it represents negativity (danger, death etc…)

So what if the Red Poneglyph doesn’t tell us of any thing bad, but rather, something good:
I was thinking that it might’ve talked about how the Kouzuki & Minks became united due to the AK helping out. Just speculation though.

We also know that Wano has no links with the World Government, its fighters being so strong that they even scare away marines.

This would mean that during the Void Century, the 20 Kingdoms were perhaps unable to invade and destroy Wano Kingdom – thus the Wano may know a lot about the happenings of that time since they survived.

 

[IMG]

Luffy interested?
Luffy rarely ever cares for such things.
Usually he starts snoring, picking his nose, or outright says he doesn’t care.

It’s interesting that Oda chose to show Luffy being actually interested in what “Kouzuki” is.

Most of us can agree by now that the Ancient Kingdom was probably alien in origin, possibly coming from the moon.
“D. = Half-Moon Theory”

Clover’s Illustration Of The Ancient Kingdom

[IMG]

Look at this:

[IMG]

[IMG]

Don’t the 8 balls surrounding the bigger ball at the centre of the crane resemble the 8 phases of the Moon around Earth?

Defo interesting. Another link with the Moon.

Furthermore, the crane crest may be based on the real life Daimyo crane crest:

[IMG]

I found out that it’s also the symbol for the Japan Airlines:

[IMG]

Could the Kouzuki’s Kamon represent freedom?
The red represents happiness.

Additionally, the Tsuru Kamon (Crane Family Crest) is usually affiliated with royalty in Japan.

Look at this:

[IMG]

There are several Crane-Kamons on Luffy’s kimono – could this have been a foreshadowing of the Kouzuki, or also, have been a foreshadowing of Luffy being of royalty.

It’s a common theory that Luffy is descended from Joy Boy (King of the AK), and thus is of royalty.

If we dig deeper, it could be a link between the D. People (AK People) and the Kouzuki.

Since the Crane-Kamon is common in Japan, it could just be a coincidence.
But we know that Oda doesn’t add things for nothing.

[IMG]

Remember this?

How about this?

[IMG]

Seems familiar.

Seeing as how the first symbol represents the Celestial Dragons, could the second symbol represent the Ancient Kingdom?
Or more particularly, an important ‘sub’-symbol of the Ancient Kingdom.

Seeing the links between the Kouzuki Family and the Ancient Kingdom, I wouldn’t be surprised if the main royalty (Oden & Momo) of the Kouzuki Family are actually D. in origin.
By D. I mean being descendants of the Ancient Kingdom.

As we know, the Ancient Kingdom had a unity of different countries (e.g. Fishman Island, Shandora etc…), so since the Kouzuki were likely part of that unity, their main royalty could’ve been related to them.

[IMG]

Momonosuke, like his father, can hear the “Voice Of All Things” (perhaps Law too since he’s drawn silent in the same row), and Neko & Inua say that someone else they remember could too.
It could’ve been Roger.

Seeing as so far all of those who could hear the Voice Of All Things are D. People (descendants of the AK), then perhaps the main royalty of the Kouzuki Family are descendants too.

8 Races = 8 Balls

Here we see 9 different Races.
But since the Fishmen and Merfolk live together, we can count this as 8.

If not the moon phases, could the 8 small balls in the crest be a reference to these 8 ‘Races’.

This is all speculation though, as so far we haven’t gotten too much info on the Kouzuki Family.

*Theory by Saffron Kaizoku

Kuma’s Intention

Myth: Kuma separated the Straw Hat Pirates so they can become stronger.

Zoro,_Luffy,_and_Sanji_Attack_PX-4

Fact: The full reason behind Kuma separating the Straw Hat Pirates is still unknown though a great deal of evidence seems to point to this myth being proven at least partially true.

By Chapter 591, it was revealed that Kuma wished to save the Straw Hats. Sentomaru also stated that the user of the Nikyu Nikyu no Mi can control where to send people, which was also proven by the fact that Perona was sent to a dark castle like she wanted. The Straw Hats then landed on suspiciously convenient spots (like Zoro ending up on Mihawk’s island and Nami on an island dedicated to studying the weather). This evidence strongly supports the myth’s veracity. Even so, until it is confirmed, this cannot be taken as a fact.

Straw Hat Death – Myth & Fact

Myth: Oda stated a crew member will die!

Fact: Possibly one of the most famous forum rumors. Back in 2003, Oda was claimed to have given verbal word that a member of the Straw Hats will die. At the time, the series was still in Skypiea.

The story goes (as often told by long-term fans) that later on when this did not happen, Oda said sorry as things had not gone as planned. The member of the crew that was suppose to die in 2003 is said to have been the Going Merry, which was originally planned to go down then. When Skypiea played out for too long, the death of the Going Merry was delayed for 3 years while Oda finished the other arcs before it and (eventually) led the storyline up to the end of the Going Merry at the end of the Enies Lobby arc.

Akainu and the rebels – Yakuza connections of the Admirals

Hello once again everyone and welcome back to yet another theory for your entertainment.This time I shall be discussing the yakuza connections of the admirals but this mostly focuses around Akainu.

First of all, why does the WG seem more like a mafia or yakuza? The way they dress, the way their meetings are held etc.. Does the fact that the 4 admirals are based off actors from the yakuza film era seem strange?
(Everyone knows this trivia)

AKAINU SAKAZUKI

Akainu is based off actor Bunta Sugawara or more specifically, his role in the popular yakuza film series Battles Without Honor and Humanity. In this movie series, Bunta was apart of a yakuza that was trying to shed their yakuza image and make Bunta retire. I’ll get more into Akainu later.

AOKIJI KUZAN

Aokiji is based off Yusaku Matsuda character in Detective Story (1983). In Detective Story, Matsuda was a detective who was hired to watch over a rich goal named Noami much to his annoyance. Things get complicated when Naomi’s mother is suspected of murdering a love hotel manager so Matsuda and Naomi investigates the crime and it leads them to the yakuza. Matsuda also starred as the main yakuza villian of the 1989 filmBlack Rain by Ridley Scott. In the movie, the lead character went deeper and deeper into the criminal undergound until he was lead the Matsuda’s character who was the main villain.

Kuzan’s actions are pretty similar to the movies. He is pretty much an undercover detective playing the villain in order to dig deeper into the underworld.

[IMG]
[IMG][IMG]

KIZARU BORSALINO

Kizaru is based off Kunie Tanaka’s character from Battles Without Honor and Humanity and Truck Yaro. In Battles Without Honor and Humanity, Kuine Tanaka was in the same yakuza as Bunta Sugiwara and was one of the people voting for Bunta to retire. Bunta and Tanaka also starred together in the comedy Truck Yaro.

[IMG]

FUJITORA ISSHO

Fujitora is based off Shintaro Katsu’s character from the Zatoichi series. During his training, Zatoichi was a member of the yakuza and killed many people. Regretting his actions, Zatoichi left the yakuza and became a compassionate man, helping as many people as he could during his travels. His endeavors led to Zatoichi being loved by many. However, since Zatoichi abandoned the yakuza, yakuza placed it bounty on his head and are hunting him.

Judging from this, it seems Fujitora blinded himself as punishment and also because he couldn’t stand seeing the suffering he caused(kind of cowardly). Fujitora was probably a criminal and seeks atonement for his actions and believes the WG isn’t what it should be since it failed to catch monsters like him.
Zatoichi- was hunted by the yakuza because he left them. Fujitora came to the “yakuza” to change them.

Funta’s Shozo Hirono- didn’t want his yakuza group to change by shedding their yakuza image. Akainu only cares about the image of himself and the marines.

Coincidence that Fujitora and Akainu lashed out at one another over the image of the marines?

[IMG]

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

Now to Akainu’s past. As I said earlier, Akainu is inspired by the character Shozo Hirono in Battles Without Honor and Humanity. Hirono was an ex-soldier and street thug who was involved in violent yakuza wars. Hirono was sent to prison many times but soon enough, his yakuza group wanted to shed its image and wanted Hirono to retire, as he was one of the main reasons the group was still viewed as a yakuza. At the end of the film series, after many of his friends were killed, Hirono retired.

Kuzan said that “the grass was greener on the other side” so you can probably guess what I’m trying to say; before the marines, Akainu was involved in criminal affairs. Heck…’Sakazuki’ means “sake cups” and they are for yakuza initiation ceremonies.

As a kid, Akainu is carrying a knife and has a cap that says “justice”. It seems even at a young age, Akainu was killing criminals. Maybe the reason Akainu is so extreme about killing criminals is because he experienced it first hand.

Probably the only thing Akainu hates more than criminals are traitors.

Here, Akainu deems a random marine a traitor for running away from the Marineford War and kills him.

[IMG]

Check Akainu’s dialogue when speaking to Jinbe.

[IMG]

Akainu tried killing Coby cause he deemed Coby a traitor.

[IMG]

After all, Akainu is a member of the rebel faction.

[IMG]

The rebel faction focuses on the findig and demise of those who has turned their backs on the world government. Who are some traitors?

[IMG]
[IMG]

I believed Dragon was a former CP0 agent and that would make the greatest traitor in WG’s history and an obvious target of Akainu. Akainu even knew that Luffy was Dragon’s son even before Sengoku told all of the marines.

[IMG]

As for Bonney, though it is unknown that BB knew of her worht or not, the person who was sent/volunteered to retrieve Bonney was Akainu and he said that she FLED aka RAN AWAY from the World Government. Not the marines.

[IMG]

According to this chart that Oda made, Aakinu is STILL hunting for Bonney and lets not ignore how Bonney’s Post-TS attire is a hoodie to conceal her face.

[IMG]

Why is Akainu hunting for Bonney? Business with Big Mam but that is a theory for another time.

You do NOT leave the yakuza nor do you leave the WG. There will be people coming after your head.

Nami has Haki – Myth & Fact

Myth: Nami can hurt Luffy, she must have Busōshoku Haki.

hqdefault1

Fact: Despite being one of the weakest members of the Straw Hats in overall physical strength (the other being Usopp), she still manages to hurt Luffy, who is made of rubber and should be unharmed by physical attacks. Oda explains this is because she “beats up Luffy’s spirit”, which is basically the purpose of Haki. However, while it is possible for Nami to learn how to use Kenbunshoku Haki or Busōshoku Haki, or even possess Haōshoku Haki, her ability to injure Luffy is entirely comical. Therefore it should not be taken as a serious display of any abilities she may or may not possess. It must also be noticed that every time a Straw Hat pirate (with the possible exception of Robin as she had no reason to do so or was never seen doing so) hits Luffy in this manner he displays a bruise briefly afterward, including Usopp, who could not harm Luffy with blunt attacks during their more serious duel in Water Seven.

Moriah’s Scar – Myth & Fact

1. Myth: Moriah’s scar comes from his fight with Kaido.

Fact: The origins of Moriah’s scar have not been revealed. Those scars have existed for at least 20 years though as shown in the chapter 0 (and appears to have grown over the years). Though it appears on the skin, it is also unconfirmed to be a scar, since almost all other scars seen with stitches in the series have normal “-” across them. For a surgeon, an “x” scar would make the skin close incorrectly on the wound, disputing the pressure on the closed wound incorrectly. This is why surgeons always do a straight stitch across as it pulls the flesh together equally.

onepiecexpokemon

2. Myth: That’s not a scar! He is wearing a mask!

Fact: Note worthy enough, the “scar” has lengthened over the years. But even before Chapter 0 was released, this theory cropped up on his face being a mask or based on a mask. To date, this is also unknown and one can presume as far as the readers are concerned that it is his true face. Early concept arts of Moriah shown him to be wearing a mask. However, the mask theory is debunked when it is revealed on the latest SBS where Oda draw the Shichibukai as children, Moriah’s face was in fact the same in his childhood, though a bit skinnier. He also does not seem to gain his scar and stitches on his face yet.

WHY DEVIL FRUIT USERS SINK IN WATER: SECRET OF SEASTONE AND MORE

I shall be going into further detail as to why devil fruit users sink in water and the secret of seastone.

As you obviously know, devil fruit users sink in water but what you may not know is that water doesn’t neutralize devil fruit powers.

[​IMG]

Luffy’s stretched arm was underwater but shouldn’t it have neutralize his powers and cause his arm to retract? There is also this:

[​IMG]

Aokiji fell into the water but inside of his power being neutralized, he used his ice to make it to the surface.

Here, Luffy is completely submerged in water but he cold still stretch.
[​IMG]

Water simply weakens devil fruits but still why? There is also the fact that seastone COMPLETELY neutralizes devil fruits powers but it has the “essence of the sea.” Also, unlike water, when DF users wear seastone, they can still move.

[​IMG]

What is the “essence of the sea”?

Gravitation or more simply, Gravity.

Kaku said he felt a “gravitational force” coming from the devil fruits.

[​IMG]

At first you would he meant it as an expression, but Kaku’s senses are quite good which made me think that he meant it literally. He was able to feel Zoro’s demon spirit.

[​IMG]

Law felt a similar force coming from seastone.

[​IMG]

The main reason I believe gravity is why devil fruit users sink and has their powers neutralized by seastone is none other than Marshall D. Teach, better known as Blackbeard.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

“Darkness” is gravitation and everyone knows what the special ability of the Darkness fruit is……

[​IMG]

Neutralizing devil fruits powers via physical contact.

Now then, the tricky part was finding the actual relationship between water and gravity as a lot of factors fall into play such as mass, pressure and density. There is also the fact that there is less gravity underwater so get ready for a science trip.

Blackbeard’s darkness is a black hole.

[​IMG]
[​IMG]

A black hole pulls an object in and once inside, the object is crushed under the immense gravity or pressure.

Seawater is more dense than fresh water(because of salt) so its easier for a human to float, but seawater has more pressure than fresh water as you go deeper. This is referred to as specific gravity, which is the ratio of the density of a substance to the density (mass of the same unit volume) of a reference substance.

The devil fruits contain the souls of people who lived in space. Space has less pressure and gravity(compared to Earth or Vearth). On Earth, gravity gives weight to physical objects and causes the tides so naturally, the souls of the space people should feel extra pressure. Gravity has an infinite range, and it cannot be absorbed, transformed, or shielded against. When submerged underwater, the souls would feel even more pressure.

It is also worth noting that the Darkness fruit was the first devil fruit to exist and it has power over gravitation and every devil fruit afterwards gave off a gravitational force. Seastone has a gravitational force similar to a black hole so like the Darkness fruit, it “sucks in ” devil fruit power and neutralizes it(cause of the immense pressure it puts on devil fruit souls).

Lets sum up everything. The devil fruit soul is like a parasite and the devil fruit user is a host. In a way, the parasite and the host share the same body.

Water- When in water, the host and the parasite feel pressure(the parasite even more so) but since they share the same body, the host feels the same effects of the parasite but can still use his/her abilities
(because its only a little pressure).

Pretty much, Blackbeard is walking seastone as they have the same effects on DF users. On the surface, they focus entirely on the parasite and uses the effects of a black hole and apply immense pressure on it. The parasite is suppressed while the host is just fine which is why they are able to move with seastone cuffs. Remember when Blackbeard black vortex against Ace? Ace felt pressure and was sucked in but when BB grabbed Acehe was fine, but the “parasite” was not. Why? Because BB’s body is still a black hole(when he uses his ability, he simply brings the black hole to the surface to affect people).
