POSSIBLE FORESHADOW OF STRAW HATS STEALING PONEGLYPH FROM KAIDO

We all know that you can just steal a paper from people who wrote down what’s on poneglyphs, but what does Luffy think about it?
[​IMG] He is not happy with that, given that he showed us his Donald Trump face.
So, how can they steal poneglyphs? Can they just carry them? Well, I think there are 2 images that foreshadow this.
First one:
[​IMG]
Wadatsumi is carrying a Poneglyph on his head.

Second one:

Look at the pattern on Luffy’s clothes – the Kozuki clan.

But what kind of significance does the clothing bring, you may ask
Well, try to remember who from Kozuki clan ate a very strange fruit, and since the day he ate that fruit, he could turn objects that are put on head into clothes.
Still doesn’t ring a bell?
This guy:
[​IMG]

They have a foolproof plan – they steal poneglyphs by literally wearing them, and then Kanjuro, with Usopp’s help, draws a new Poneglyph where the old one was so no one can suspect a thing! I think it’s a perfect scheme.

Law And The Voice Of All Things

After last chapters, many people in OP community started speculating that the fact Momonosuke is hearing a voice makes him somewhat related to the ability of hearing Voice of All Things!

Most likely, the main hint is this panel, that may be a reference to Roger, the one we know for sure that had this ability:
İmage

Actually, way ago (December 21, 2015), I’ve done a theory video in my channel exposing my ideas that Inuarashi and Nekomamushi knew Gol D. Roger, that we would have a Poneglyph in Zou and that most likely Roger was able to “hear” it.

Seems like, maybe, some of my ideas can be proven right in the near future. If not, well, by the time it was a good theory xD, haha.

Anyway, one think that REALLY caught my attention and people aren’t commenting is Law’s expression while climbing the tree.

İmage

Why is he so uneasy? So unconfortable? And why did Oda (which clearly is trying to faster the story’s pace) make sure he showed Law’s expression to us?

Also, inside the tree, while everybody’s freaking out with Raizou, Law is still uneasy. It can be due to the awkward situation, but maybe not. Also, we can’t asure he’s looking at Raizo instead of the Poneglyph, which is supposed to be from where the “voice” comes

İmage

Anyway, if Law can “hear” the the Voice of All Things too, it open possibilities:

– Gol D Roger
– Monkey D Luffy
– Trafalgar D Water Law

So…. does it means that this ability is related to the D clan?
Anyway, Luffy never heard a Poneglyph (although he seems to have the ability to hear the Voice of All Things). Is this ability something that you awaken somehow or train, something like that?

Second interesting topic: does this mean that Momonosuke (and the rest of the Kougetsu/Kouzuki family) is a D???

Well… guess we’ll learn a little more about it all by the chapter that’s coming tomorrow.

Thanks for reading

ZORO AND LAW “THE BADASS DUO” VS JACK INCOMING

After the recent chapter, many people believe that we will propably have a Jack vs Strawhats showdown and i am one of them!

But, i still believe it’s gonna be a seperation between the strawhats!

Luffy will take few people with him(I believe except for Pekoms, Raizou will join him as well) and Zoro with Law will prepare for the trip to Wano!

However, there is a small obstacle… none other that Jack himself…! and i will explain why…

We know that he went on a rescue mission to save Doflamingo from getting imprison!

In addition, we know he is heading to Impel Down!

Now, let’s look the map…

As you can see,Impel Down is on the west while the strawhats are in the opposite direction(east/Zou).

We know that Jack , managed to attack the marines before reaching Impel Down!

Also, we know that he left the island the same day Doflamingo was defeated!That was 11 days ago…! And base on chapter 807(ten days ago) half of the strawhats reached Zou!

So, if i have to take a guess… the distance at that time(It’s a moving island) between Dressrosa and Zou was approximately 1-2 days at most!(read chapter 807 , it will help you understand how many days has passed since entering the NW!Base on my calculations they are 14-15 days)

Taken into consideration the analysis i just made, it’s highly possible that he managed to catch up with the navy really quick!

If we also take into the account that the navy left Dressrosa the third day after the battle…!2

It is beautifully adds up!

In my opinion, Jack managed to catch up around here!

In the proccess managed to sink two ships, but sustained some injuries and considered dead…

However,he failed to retrieve doflamingo and base on the last chapter, he is alive and by the looks of it, he is been accompanied by a large fleet!

So, guys let’s refresh our memory!

What was his initial mission?
To retrieve Raizou!
And where he is now?
He is on Zou!
So, what he is going to do?
He is going to complete, his unfinished mission!

I think it’s a pretty logical way of thinking , don’t you think?

Even if he wants to go somewhere else, he has to pass to Zou…!

I think it’s very unlikely to move on , straight to Big Mom’s tea party… I doubt he even knows anything about it…

Also, take note that the battle between him and the navy occured around 8 days ago(11-3=8…xD)!

He had 8 whole days to rest,to heal,to prepair(fleet)and to travel back on Zou to put an end to his unfinished business!

So, he must be pretty close to Zou!

That means a SHOWDOWN!I can feel the hype!:)

In my opinion, since there is the Sanji matter on one hand and the Jack matter on the other , they will have no choice but to split!

But why split and not go all together to save Sanji?

1.Luffy said he will go alone, although i doubt he will be completely alone… he will take at least two![Pekoms and Raizou(stealth)… they will sneak!]

2.I think it was foreshadowed that, it’s going to be a match between Zoro vs Jack!
a)They both are the right hand man of their captains!
b)They both use swords as weapons
c)When the minks were talking about Jack, Oda focused on Zoro twice for a reason!c011

3.There is no way Zoro, will go after Sanji after making that speech1

4.The strawhats befriended the minks and i don’t think they will leave them at their fate…Luffy will entrust Zoro with the mission to protect them any way he can!I believe Law will stay too, since his good friend Bepo is from Zou!Let’s not forget they are still many of them injured

5.Lastly… maybe one of the biggest mysteries… the moon!
We have yet to be relieved , what happens when the full moon is out!

I think i gave you some solid points!

To move on with the last part of my theory!

The last part of this theory will be a speculation, but if you think about it , it will might make some sense!

I think in this fight we will have a Law and Zoro vs Jack battle, like we had the Law and Luffy combination against Doflamingo!
So, this combination could be turn out to be true!

Also, they are similar in personalities…both badass,cool,serious and bloodthirsty when they fight!

In my opinion, this duo will be amazing!

To conclude, i think we will have a big revelation regarding Zoro’s past from the moment he will release his demonic spirit!
Yes, i think this will be the fight that we will see him go all out!

This will be the moment when Zoro will trully connect to Wano and it will ignite his desire to go to Wano even more and learn about his past and lineage!

I don’t know how the fight will turn out… but i believe , during this fight Jack will tell him about his demonic/cursed clan or lineage and to how he might connect to one of his future enemies!

I hope you enjoyed my theory

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.

Romantic Relationships in One Piece

Myth: X character in One Piece is in love with X other character in One Piece.

Fact: It is not uncommon to see pairings mentioned like Luffy x Nami, Luffy x Boa Hancock, Sanji x Nami, Zoro x Nico Robin,  however some fans try to force the speculation into fact when it is not.

Fans love to fantasize about possible character couples.

lxb

When asked if there would be romance in One Piece in a SBS letter, Eiichiro Oda replied “they are in love with adventure”. There are no hints released in the manga itself. There exist minor love stories such as Kyros and Scarlett’s love story and certain relationships have been addressed (such as Piiman, Tamanegi and Ninjin mentioning how Usopp is a “lucky man” to have somebody as Kaya) but they are rather minor and no major relationship has been officially confirmed. As such, most love referencing comes in the form of perverted comments from one character to the other. Oda said that since this is a shonen manga, there is practically no romance (with a few exceptions, such as married couples, etc.) Not counting Sanji’s feelings towards almost every female being in existence, Oda took eleven years to introduce any form at all – Boa Hancock’s love for Luffy. However this is considered to be a one-sided romance solely intended for humor as Luffy does not have those same feelings for Hancock, having turned down her marriage proposal several times in the past. Oda also mentioned in one of the SBS that One piece is manga targeted at young boys, therefore there will be no romance between the straw hat crew.

WHY THE STRAWHAT GRAND FLEET WILL BE THE GREATEST

6963a0ad648ba3724d430c2229b11f86

I would first like to state that there are a few things that make the StrawHat Grand Fleet different then most fleets we’ve seen so far

1- They don’t stay together the entire time, each division of Luffy’s fleet travels the New World on their own adventures which will help them develop in different ways.

2- They all joined Luffy not out of fear but out of respect

3- A lot of the individual captains/commanders have their own goals/dreams, they might not be as big or important as the straw hats but they are dreams

1 Cavendish wants to be a star and a great pirate known all over the world
2 Bartholomeo wants to be of use to Luffy and help him and the crew in every way
3 Sai wants to raise the happo navy to greatness
4 Ideo wants to be a great fighter kinda like Ussop wants to be brave warrior
5 Hajrudin wants to rebuild the giant pirate crew
6 Leo and co want to help Ussop and Luffy as much as Bartolomeo
7 Orlumbus seems to love adventure like Luffy

Now their potential growth is the main point of this theory

But first i want to bring up one of my theories on kings haki and haki in general. Now i believe the reason why we have not seen a Marine or any strong member of a Yonko’s crew with king haki is because they serve under someone, kings do not serve others. Also ranking systems are in almost every crew or organization in One Piece except the Straw Hats. In this way the Straw Hats are all on equal ground with Luffy, they do not shy from making their opinion known like in most crews, Luffy has been shown to take their advice when making important decisions like with Ussop on Water 7 and Sanji here on Zou.
With this freedom i believe that the Straw Hats and fleet members are not limited in how strong their haki can be trained and developed. I believe that the fear to constantly please and obey Yonkos like Big Mom and Kadio limits the overall power of someones haki because haki is a form of willpower and fear weakens willpower. In saying that I do not believe Yonko crew members are weak just not as strong as there maximum potential. The Straw Hats and fleet do not serve Luffy like most fleets serve there captains, they assist Luffy in his quest to become pirate king, this change in mind set can cause many of the main fighters to develop new attacks and unlock higher levels of haki like with Ussop when unlocked his coO haki.

Sai could improve his dragon drill tech adding the power to his staff gain kings haki like Chinjao.
What if Hakuba is Cavendish’s personal haki demon like the Zoro has and he learned to control him?
Barto could learn to crate more then one barrier and shape them into weapons animals or other shapes..
Others could develop spiritual power up like Sanji’s fire, Brook’s ice, Fishman Karate and unknown tech

Please let me know what you think below

*Theory by alwaysrollinup

SANJI & ZORO WILL HAVE THEIR SEPARATE ARCS

During the development of this new chapter (Chapter 814), I think its becoming clearer on how to kinda assume some things for the future of the story regarding Kaido and Big Mom.

In this chapter, there was a certain scene that gave a good feel of the status of the strawhats, specifically the scene where Zoro and Luffy argued about on whether going to rescue Sanji or not.
[​IMG]

I think that Strawhats would get a vote off (Luffy and Zoro would have a big rift) and the Strawhats would split with one team going to Wano-Kuni and the other group rescuing Sanji, of course, this group is Luffy’s.

If im gonna give a guess on who goes with Zoro and who goes with Luffy, of course the ones that goes with Zoro are the reasonable ones, the more practical ones (you already can sense it with their dialouges last chapter)

Zoro = Robin, Ussop and Brook.

While the guys who would go with Luffy’s group are the emotional first ones.

Luffy = Nami, Chopper and Franky

And THIS division is actually really interesting.

===========

First of all, please take at look at the possible group of Zoro which would go through the original mission and go to Wano-Kuni.

Of course, its never more obvious that they also are going to Kaido’s path.

Nevermind that for now and focus here, Zoro is gonna be with Robin, Ussop and Brook.

They are going to Wano-Kuni, and it seems that Zoro’s group references some yokais

Robin = Robin actually got a lot of possible yokai reference, i’ll just leave it like that.
Ussop = tengu
Brook = gashadokuro

Well of course Zoro is a samurai, and along with Kinemon, Momonosuke and Kanjuuro.

The question is, who would accompany Zoro’s group?

Obviously, the clear guys are Law and the Heart Pirates.

It’s also interesting to note that Fujitora might possibly be in Wano-Kuni (and Jack, Sengoku and Tsuru as well) who also are referenced after some very japanese stuff.

The possible opponent in wano-kuni? = Kaido or Jack.

Wano-Kuni would be the biggest spotlight of Zoro. and he would get the first crack against Kaido.

Which other guy would go with Zoro’s group?

Nekomamushi.

==============

Now let’s focus on Luffy’s group.

More than referencing the guys in Luffy’s group, in this group, i believe this determines which people would tag along their group….which some of them also would be involved in Wano-Kuni arc.

Let’s get this out of the way first, Bonney & X-Drake would appear in this Sanji arc. at least what i believe….because of Big Mom.

Nami = Absalom & Tashigi
Franky = Vegapunk
Luffy = Smoker & Moriah
Chopper = Hogback & Vegapunk

Zou would be the biggest spotlight of Sanji and he would get the first crack against Big Mom.

============

Basically the point im making is that i believe Luffy would take a backseat in this Big Mom/Kaido mess and that Zoro and Sanji would shine in these arcs…especially the first parts of the arcs.

(although at the end Luffy would be the one to end them dont get me wrong, and i believe their alliance will grow with 2 more people with X-Drake & Bonney)

Trafalgar Law, Eustass Kid, Doflamingo & Bellamy Historical Connections

one_piece_historical_connections_3_by_elizabethober-d7inczs

Edward Low: Captain EdwardNedLow born around 1690 into poverty in London. His wife died in childbirth in late 1719. Two years later, he became a pirate He captained a number of ships, usually maintaining a small fleet of three or four, burned most of his captured ships, captured about 100. Remains notorious as one of the most vicious pirates of the age, a man of “amazing and grotesque brutality.” When in a rage he resorted to decapitated, burning people alive, forcing them to eat limbs he cut off, etc. he was never caught, ending his days in Brazil.

Eustace Monk: Born in 1170, studied black magic, lived in a monastery for awhile, then left to avenge his murdered father, burning the man’s property down. He then became a pirate in the English channel. Was outlawed at times by England and France, Started up a large band of pirates called the Eustace Brother. Made a home base on one of the channel islands. Would often turn against allies and kingdoms he was allied with.

William Kidd: Some historians argue that his piratical reputation unjust, as there is only evidence that Kidd was a privateer. Kidd’s fame springs largely from the sensational circumstances of his questioning before the English Parliament and the ensuing trial. He thought the ship he was taking was an enemy ship but it was not and so it was deemed piracy by the English and he was tried. As his trial ensued his friends deserted him. He was also accused of murdering his crew member when in truth the member was committing mutiny and Kidd was in the right. He is best known for being one of the only pirates to bury his treasure and did so before coming into port and being arrested as he did not want the Governor to have it. If it were not for his wealthy noble backers, who wished to remain anonymous at all costs and to distance themselves from Kidd in any way possible, his contacts probably would have saved him.

Samuel Bellamy: English pirate in early 18th century is crew captured at least 53 ships under his command. Bellamy became known for his mercy and generosity toward those he captured on his raids. He was part of a mutiny on Captain Hornigold’s ship, Hornigold left Marianne with his loyal followers, including Teach. The remaining 90-man crew then elected Bellamy as captain. He liked expensive clothes, especially black coats. His favorite weapons were four dueling pistols that he always carried in the sash. His captain rules were almost democratic. His crew liked him a lot and sometimes even called him “Robin Hood of the Sea”. Captain Bellamy was also a good strategist. His ship was quick and agile.

Dominique You: A French Privateer and Politician, You was falsely convicted of piracy in the gulf, but the Americans failed to capture him. He had reputation for being very bold and daring. He was pardoned by American for helping them in their war against Britain. He preyed on preyed on Spanish ships. Did meet up and work with Lafitte for a time.

WAR FOR THE NEW WORLD! YONKO’S OVERTHROWN!

In this theory, I would like to go in a step by step manner so I will split in in parts.
First I will discuss the participants and their purpose. Then the foreshadowings of war. Then some predictions as to what may happen. Finally a speculated conclusion. Let’s begin.

PART 1:- PARTIES TO THE WAR
1) Yonkos
2) Supernova alliances
3) Marines
4) Outsiders (there’s a surprise awaiting here)

1) Yonkos
A) Kaido
Obviously I will begin with the man who will begin the war. There’s not much to explain here if you read the chapter on Kaido(Chap 795). That was the biggest foreshadowing. Let’s go into his other reasons apart from waging a war like it’s a college sport and he is the team captain.
In that same chapter, we saw him land right in front of the captains of a supernova alliance who were already looking to take down a yonko even though Kaido wasn’t the target. There are 2 possibilities here:-
I) Either they are all smashed to bits which i don’t think is likely at all.
II) Kaido planned to start a war and they agreed to fight then rather than now and the alliance was spared. (This is what would have happened. Kaido wants a war and not a skirmish)

Another reason is “Law also notes that if they kill Doflamingo and destroy the factory, Kaido will transfer his grudge to the pirate alliance.”(wikia).
[​IMG]

Though he probably didn’t hear it, if he realises it any later, it fits perfectly with his motive for a war.

The Third and last reason:- During the Marineford War, Kaido wanted to fight with Whitebeard but was intercepted by Shanks. For Shank’s behaviour, fighting is the last option plus if they fought, they definitely couldn’t make it to the war. Definitely Shanks must have talked Kaido out of it. But is it so easy talking out a man like him? Absolutely not. Kaido must have gotten some sort of promise from Shanks for a future fight or something or some other sort of diplomatic agreement. Perhaps Shanks will be invited now if Kaido wishes to start the war.
Those are for Kaido’s reasons.

B) Big Mam
She has quite some beef with the supernova alliances as well. Luffy’s challenge to her and Kid destroying her ships.
Also just recently they again saw the Straw Hats Sunny group holding Caesar hostage who is a target for Big Mam as well as the supernova who allied with her Capone Bege. Bege himself has a bone to pick with Luffy because of the admiral being summoned to Sabaody Archipelago because of you know what :p
Also the yonko’s are stubborn so I suppose she wouldn’t have forgiven Kid either and naturally she will want to participate in the war to show her wrath.

C) Blackbeard
A schemer and a coward but a perfect opportunist. We already know he is on the hunt for Devil Fruits. Naturally the strongest Devil Fruit users will be Yonko captains or their commanders. Wouldn’t he be fantasising having Kaido’s devil fruit. However this means as usual he won’t enter the war until the end.
He will come just to steal the spoils i.e take devil fruit abilities and territories of any fallen Yonko crew.

D) Shanks
I don’t think he will be part of the war from the beginning either. As a person who would keep fighting as a last resort, he may either enter the war half way through or in between to protect Luffy for the timebeing (I will explain this in predictions for the war) or to intercept and stop Blackbeard or he may later on be forced by Kaido to join the war somehow (as discussed earlier)

2) Supernova Alliances
A) Kid-Hawkins-Apoo alliance
They already wanted to take down Shanks but had Kaido land right in front of them. Do they have much of a choice? They anyway wanted to take down a yonko and Kid being the stubborn guy as he is, I don’t see why he wouldn’t want to participate in the war.

B) Luffy-Law alliance
A war where the yonkos are going to take part. Do you think Luffy can resist it? He already wants to take down all 4 of the yonko. Kaido was his first target but unbeknownst to Law, Luffy already mocked Big mam into a fight. Both his targets being at the war and with his excitement to do stuff where Nami,Usopp and Chopper will freak out of fear is barely containable. I guess you can already see his twinkling eyes. Anyway this would be an unavoidable scenario for them so it’s not like they have a choice.

3)Marines
Now why would Marines want to interfere in Yonko’s war and business? If you remember Jinbe explaining to Luffy that Akainu shifted Navy HQ in the New World, then there is only 1 reason why he would step in the turf of the Emperors i.e if he wants to make it his own turf. We already know that New World is ruled by Yonkos when Garp was explaining this to Luffy in Episode 313. This means that the World Government had minimal control there. Obviously you can’t expect to take down all 4 and rule supremely. They had a hard time beating 1. Akainu himself is also an opportunist and will slowly want to bring more New World territories under the Government’s control. This is the perfect opportunity where you have the Yonkos face off each other. They become easier targets for a cunning schemer like Akainu. He also will want the Marines move in at the last moment just to claim territories so that there is minimum damage to his forces and at the same time he manages to pull off some territories from the Yonkos into the Government hands. Hence the marines would be late interrupters.
Another reason is because they have to do damage control first after what happened in Dressrosa and reinstate their reputation as much as they can after its recent plummeting in nearby kingdoms. They can’t just jump in the war after such a blunder. So they will take part but a late entry rather than right from the beginning. Akainu will let them damage each other and then jump at the right opportunity.

4) Other participants
A) Gecko Moriah
We already know he hates Kaido because Kaido killed his crew. He definitely will look to join forces with some other war participants to take down Kaido.

B) Crocodile
He already entered the New World again and was hiding from Marines attempting to capture him.
[​IMG]

I expect him to make an entry too. He won’t be idle sitting and doing nothing when the whole New World in engulfed in war.

C) Buggy
He did state his ambitions of becoming a Yonko. Though he really won’t be serious when such big names are involved. He may look to be an opportunist and show his face at the war and still do almost nothing except ‘accidentally’ helping Luffy or Shanks a little :p

D) Whitebeard Pirates
They will also join the war at some point to help protect Luffy. We saw Marco say that Ace’s will lives on in Luffy and I feel they may enter the war to protect Luffy from Blackbeard and Akainu.

Now the big surprise.
E) Golden Lion Shiki
He is a canon character as mentioned by Magellan to be the first person to escape Impel Down. Though Strong World is a non-canon movie. Oda-sensei may have something planned for Shiki and it obviously won’t be something small. If we consider Chapter 0 of One Piece, he wanted World domination. However he failed to convince Roger and later on was captured (long story, will just pick relevant parts). He made the following statements too
[​IMG]

He despises the New Age and also wants to rule and dominate the world. Yonkos, supernovas etc. was all created in this new era though it had some old timers like Whitebeard. When all the people of the New age gather for the war, this presents him the perfect opportunity to fulfill both his goals; i)Become a Yonko himself and claim territories under his rule & ii) Teach the New age supernova pirates and others a lesson as he stated in the above image. He isn’t an ordinary man and moves with huge fleets perfect for a large scale war and he is a powerhouse himself. Everything simply adds up.

Moving on

PART 2:- FORESHADOWINGS OF THE WAR
The first foreshadowing :- Kaido
[​IMG]
It makes everything obvious doesn’t it? He wants to start the greatest war and definitely the greatest war wouldn’t just be of small scale with 2 or 3 participants. Hence all the above participants.

Second Foreshadowing:-
Chapter 799-The parent child relationship. If these people were to just help Luffy during 1 war i.e the Final war, why would Oda rush things. We were expecting Luffy vs Fuji and ended up with something even more epic. LUFFY COMMANDING 5600 PEOPLE!!! Obviously there must be something coming. Still not convinced? Then here’s another evidence.
[​IMG]

In this page Law explains it all why Luffy needed a fleet to pick a fight with any yonko. They needed a strategy and a big fleet. However with Doflamingo gone and Kaido wanting to start a war, the initial plan is tossed out. I feel Oda was building upto this silently. Law’s explanations after Punk Hazard Arc and the events at the end of Dressrosa Arc. Also the end of Fishman Island arc. At the end of every arc, Oda-sensei has given hints as to this which prompted me to wonder why and led me to making this theory. It’s like a chain if you observed.

Third is a speculation
A war before the timeskip. I personally expect a second timeskip. There is alot to uncover both plot wise and in character development. I almost feel like One Piece isn’t more than 60 percent complete yet. No one knows Zoro or Sanji’s real origins. We straight away saw their childhood and both have mysterious abilities. Luffy has alot of development to do both in strength and somewhat in character as well.
Finally it is unimaginable to have a 19 year old Pirate King. Wouldn’t that simply make Roger Rayleigh and everyone a joke?

Before the first timeskip we had an epic war which had a massive impact on everyone especially Luffy. Something similar would happen in this war which shall signal a timeskip where all straw hats train further before Luffy can finally become Pirate King and wage war with the Government itself to abolish all the crappy systems. The Void century and Will of D will be discovered after that. Hence there would be a war after which a timeskip.

PART 3:- SPECULATED EVENTS OF THE WAR
I would be a fool if I really tried to predict Oda-sensei as to the entire events of the war. I pretty much explained the reasons and foreshadowings because there was evidence. However what happens in the war is pure speculation.
However somethings where I can atleast discuss a possibility are as below:-
Revolutionaries will not take part again because if they were to, then more details about some of their strong commanders would have been hinted atleast. Sabo has yet to master the Mera Mera no Mi and apparently isn’t strong enough to take on one of the strongest Yonko commanders or Navy Admiral in a serious war yet.
That leaves Dragon. Ivankov is strong but not really a very high level powerhouse. There are some theories as to Aokiji being a revolutionary but as of now we can’t say anything. If Revolutionaries were to go to war, we would atleast know of some preparations and some of their strong powerhouse character introductions. That hasn’t happened.

The war is still far away as we haven’t yet seen any New World nakamas actually join. Luffy’s fleets are also in development especially Hajruddin and Ideo’s crew. We have yet to encounter Wano-kuni arc and whether we get to see Elbaf soon or not is also yet unknown. So the war will still take alot of time to begin.

In the war, I expect Big mam and Kaido to fall with Kaido being dead again killed by perhaps Blackbeard or Akainu. Luffy Law and other supernovas will have a hard time in the war and will barely survive the war. They will do damage but won’t exactly be victorious. Luffy and Law had such a hard time against Doffy so how can we expect them to take on Kaido of whom Doffy was scared as shit! Blackbeard will steal some devil fruit abilities for his crew while Akainu will conquer some territories for the World Government. Shiki will rise to power as a new Yonko.

Big Mam and Luffy will fight which will be stopped midway by Nami realising Big Mam is Lola’s mother from the vivre card and will use that to stop a fight to the death and rather end the bitterness from going to worse. Big mam will be alive but will lose her status as Yonko.

Luffy will manage to claim some unruled territoties and fishman island as his own. By standing upto Big mam and probably fighting well, he will manage to convince her into giving up Fishman Island to him while claiming territories like Dressrosa,Prodence,Wano Kingdom and Kano Kingdom and maybe Elbaf as his own territories which will be protected by his fleets when he enters the Time skip.

There will be some deaths but who exactly we do not know. People predict Shanks to die but whether he dies here or not I cannot say. The war will end with an imbalance again. Lack of 7 shichibukai, and perhaps only 3 yonko.
Why i feel Luffy won’t be a yonko is because he wants to be Pirate King. He wants to defeat all 4 Yonkos and find One Piece rather than usurping their positions. How can he enter a timeskip if he is yonko? Can you imagine a Yonko whose whereabouts go unknown for 4-5 years?
When Luffy becomes Pirate King, there will be no yonko system and there will be 1 sole ruler of the sea with utmost freedom.

Also people predict X Drake to join Luffy and Law alliance by betraying Kaido. I want it to happen but whether it happens or not, I cannot say. He does have some unspoken history with Law.
Also I expect the Whitebeard Pirates to show up and help Luffy against Blackbeard and Akainu to survive.
That is more possible as they will show up sooner or later and Marco spoke of Luffy carrying Ace’s will.

Speculated Conclusion:
1) Imbalance in Shichibukai due to pre war and war activities
2) Kaido’s death and Blackbeard stealing his devil fruit and many others.
3) Big mam’s fall from power and Akainu establishing World Government control over previously Yonko territories.
4) Shiki’s rise to power and claiming of terrotories,
5) Straw Hat Crew and alliance survival and signaling of a time skip.
6) Kid, Buggy and others also claiming some territories.
7) No ultimate powers in the New World as many people have some territories among them.
Government, Shiki, Blackbeard, Shanks (if alive) having big territories while Luffy and others claim few small territories as their own.
[Have a nightmare that Shanks may die while protecting Luffy trigerring another catalyst for Luffy like Ace.] 8) Changes in marines and more connections being established (like Drake joining Luffy Law alliance perhaps)
9) Showing up of Whitebeard Pirates again
Summarising all of the above, alteration in the structure of New World and a Time Skip.

THE CURSED SWORDS OF ONE PIECE; THE SECRETS AND EXPLANATION

Hello once again everyone and welcome back to yet another theory for your entertainment. I’ve made a few theories that mentioned cursed words and I’ve had quite the number of people tell me that they don’t fully understand how cursed swords work. In this theory, I shall be discussing the secret of the cursed swords in its entirety. Since I don’t like pointless small talk, I’ll get straight to the point.

In Dressrosa, we’ve learned that all real DFs contained souls.
[​IMG]

In Enies Lobby, we learned that objects can “eat” devil fruits. Spandam’s Funkfreed is a sword that has an elephant zoan.
[​IMG]

With this, I can safely say that all cursed swords has a soul trapped inside of it. An entity or spirit of sorts that was once human. Souls to DF, DFs to objects, objects to souls.

These entities are either good or bad. Swords with good spirits are divine blades.

Swords with bad spirits are called cursed blades and all cursed swords bring misfortune and the type of misfortune varies from sword to sword.

There is an old saying that swords chooses its owner.
[​IMG]
When it comes to cursed swords, they literally choose their owner.

I will be discussing these 3 cursed swords in particular:

Durandal wielded by “Pirate Prince” Cavendish
[​IMG]

Kikoku wielded by “Surgeon of Death” Trafalgar Law
[​IMG]

Snadai Kitetsu wielded by “Pirate Hunter” Roronoa Zoro
[​IMG]
**********************************
[​IMG]

Durandal means “To endure.” Cavendish’s will and mind must endure the spirit of Durandal Hakuba or else he’ll lose himself and become a genocidal psycho.

Hakuba’s cursed entity is about control.

Cavendish constantly has a tug-o-war against Hakuba for control of his mind and body.
[​IMG]

Obviously when Cavendish falls asleep, Hakuba takes over but he has shown the ability to take over Cavendish at anytime.
[​IMG][​IMG]

It wasn’t until recently that Hakuba accepted Cavendish to a degree and agreed to only take over his body every once in a while.
**********************************
[​IMG]

Law’s sword means “Demon’s Cry/Wail.” It also means “return to one’ homeland.” What’s makes one cry or wail? What might one feel being away from their homeland? Pain.

Kikoku’s cursed entity is about pain.

Law was the one who got the hurt the most in Punk Hazard and Dressrosa. Ironic since he is a cunning and cautious doctor and doctors are supposed to ease pain.
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

[​IMG]

Know what else is associated with pain? Death. Law’s life even before getting the blade was filled with nothing but pain and death. It was very easy for the Kikoku spirit to accept Law and its the reason Law has those death tattoos on his fingers.

The blade will also affect Law’s spirit. Being a ‘D’, Law will undoubtedly unlock CoC and the Kikoku will make Law’s spirit very dark and sinister, muck like the “Dark King” Rayleigh.
*************************
[​IMG]

The one everyone was waiting for probably.

The most popular belief is that the Sandai Kitetsu curse is Asura.
[​IMG] [​IMG]

That is not the case. Asura and the Sandai Kitetsu are different. Zoro always had an asura demon spirit.

Lets look at what an Asura spirit is.

While all the gods of the Kāmadhātu are subject to the passions to some degree, the Asuras above all of them have become addicted to them, especially wrath, pride, envy, insincerity, falseness, boasting, and bellicosity.Because of their passions, rebirth as an Asura is considered to be one of the four unhappy births (together with rebirth as an animal, a preta, or a being in Naraka). The state of an Asura reflects the mental state of a human being obsessed with ego, force and violence, always looking for an excuse to get into a fight, angry with everyone and unable to maintain calm or solve problems peacefully.Beings may go to the Asura realm because in human form they had good intentions, but committed bad actions such as harming others.Some asuric deities commonly used curved swords and control flames.

Sounds eerily similar to Zoro right? Zoro stands above normal humans but is currently below a god(Mihawk). A pretty normal human who caused harm to lots of people and was pretty “reborn” as an Asura. Even as a child, Zoro was eerily similar to an Asura.

Asura is Zoro’s spirit manifesting itself in physical form. His untapped CoC in physical to be exact.

Even though Zoro is an asura demon, he always kept his humanity. Ever since Zoro got the Sandai Kitetsu, Zoro began to slowly lose it and got more n’ more demonic as time went on.

In Skypia, Zoro was attacked by a random monk with a spear. Zoro took him out by smashing the monk’s face with his sword hilt.
[​IMG]

Fast forward to Sabody, Zoro was attacked by a random Tenryubitto(he had no idea who the CD was). Instead of trying to knock him out, Zoro tried to mercilessly kill the guy. Just look at Zoro’s face.
[​IMG]

Zoro let off so much killing intent that even Apoo, who isn’t a swordsman, felt it.

[​IMG]

A drastic change in actions no?

Back in Enies Lobby, Zoro’s spirit could be felt by Kaku
[​IMG]

Everyone is calling Zoro’s spirit beast-like. Why is that? It isn’t because of his asura spirit(mostly at least).

It because of the Sandai Kitetsu.

Sandai Kitetsu means “Third generation demon cutter.” It is the weakest of the 3 demon cutters.
[​IMG]

The curse of Sandai Kitetsu(all kitetsus) is that all of its owners die.
[​IMG]

In the scan above, you can see that the previous owners died from calling off cliffs, being eaten alive, burning alive etc.. Despite all those tragedies,the Sandai Kitetsu remains intact.

The Sandai Kitetsu took over its wielders to made them kill themselves, as the blade did not accept them as its owner.

The Sandai Kitetsu never tried to get Zoro to kill himself because not only does Zoro have a very strong spirit, the Sandai Kitetsu accepted Zoro as its owner.

With just one look, Zoro automatically knew that the Sandai was a cursed sword and he even said that he liked it.
[​IMG] [​IMG]

The main reason the Sandai accepted Zoro is because Zoro and the Sandai spirit are similar but lets back track a little bit. Remember when I said that Zoro has his humanity despite being an Asura demon? Remember when I said how Zoro is getting more merciless as time goes on?

The Curse of the Sandai Kitetsu spirit is bloodlust and it is leading Zoro down the “Path of the Demon.”

The “Path of the Demon” is a path where a person sacrifices his humanity and lives for nothing but combat, blood and chaos. He literally becomes a beast going down this path. That’s why people can sense Zoro’s bloodlusted spirit and calls him a beast.

Zoro thought he overcame the curse but it was pure luck that his arm didn’t get cut off.
[​IMG] [​IMG]

Zoro will find out about the curse in Wano and will go through its villages to learn how to dominate it. Zoro may succeed, but he may lose control of his demon spirit when he gets his hands on the Nidai Kitetsu.

Look at the pattern on Sandai.
[​IMG][​IMG]

Look familiar?
[​IMG]

I believe one of Kaidou’s men or the 7th Shichibukaihas the Nidai Kitetsu and Zoro will take it. The Nidai is also cursed and is more bloodthirsty than the Sandai so Zoro’s spirit will struggle.
