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.

Fukurokuji is the god of happiness, wealth and longevity.

This is Don Chinjao and his design is even based off Fukurokuji.

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.

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

Benzaiten is the goddess knowledge, art and beauty.

This is Tsuru.

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.

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

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

This is Crocus.

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.”

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.

This is 1oo Beast Kaidou.

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.
