[Theory] One Piece – There’s Something About Monet (Nakama Theory)

One Piece - Monet - by teebohne

Monet the Harpy – art by teebohne

I really can’t help myself in pushing forward this theory as I have quite the obsession with Monet’s character. Although I will make an effort to be as objective as I possibly can, there will be a certain degree of bias driving me during my interpretation of the scenes which I will be using to support my theory surrounding Monet regarding her potential as a Straw Hat nakama candidate due to my obsession. Be it my delusion, hope, insanity, ego or something even more intangible, there is some incomprehensibly mysterious force compelling me to follow through with this desire.

One Piece Chapter 951 – Kaidou And Linlin

One Piece chapter 951 - Kaidou and Linlin

And so they meet…

After decades of previously meeting each other, Kaidou and Linlin finally encounter each other again and how exhilarating the proceeding events will be. Not only are we being treated to a battle between the two or at the very least a few blows exchanged that will shake the very Island and skies around them but we will finally get to learn more about the history surrounding Kaidou and Linlin and the previous pirate crew they both belonged to before moving on and founding their own pirates crews. Who was their captain and will Gol D. Roger or the Will of D fit into their history somehow? Hopefully before Onishima Island is leveled, we get to find out more xD.

One Piece Chapter 950 – The Heir To Wano Kuni

One Piece chapter 950 - The graves of Wano Kuni

What it meant for the people of Wano Kuni to liberate themselves from the crushing shackles of Orochi and Kaidou

Even though minmal has been covered on Kozuki Oden as a character relative to the Wano Kuni Arc, he has been established as an honourable and powerful character, one who cared about the country of Wano Kuni and wished for it to genuinely prosper both economically and socially. With his son now standing in his position foreign to the weight shouldered on such a leadership role, how will Momonosuke react to the responsibility and courage asked of him? From now on, Momonosuke cannot merely reside in the background and leave the mess in the Wano Kuni for someone else to clean up, he has to proactively lead the eyes asking questions of him to fight for their own freedom and future.

One Piece Chapter 949 – The Pain Of Wano Kuni

His declaration of intention for all to hear

Even with hope in front of the citizens of Wano Kuni, their souls have been broken and tormented by their captives with the image of fear burned deep within their selves mentally blocking their senses from willing their bodies to rebel again. The pain and anguish suffered instilled within their emotions a terror which they wholeheartedly believed to be seemingly unsurmountable. It took an act of selfless unexpectance to break away the clouds of doubt drowning their inner hopes out. With the display of passion and conviction blazing in front of them, the victims of Wano Kuni could do nothing but be compelled by the heat of hope to fuel their resolve to rebel against Orochi and Kaidou. Come what may, the broken souls of Wano Kuni are tired of lying to themselves that the suffering they are enduring is living.

One Piece Chapter 948 – Kawamatsu The Kappa

The Return Of The Nine Red Scabbards + Luffy

Despite Kawamatsu the Kappa finally being revealed in all his Kappa glory, the most shocking aspect of the chapter for me was the revelation that Kiko is a man. I didn’t expect that. I probably should have given that the Nine Red Scabbards are a group composed of all males but the fact that Kiko was intentionally illustrated as a female led me believe that Kiko was one. You got me Oda-sensei, what a good twist. Additionally Kiko looks super dangerous and cool with that mask.

One Piece Chapter 947 – Big Mom’s Rampage


Luffy only has himself to blame for his current situation but fortunately it turned out working out for him

Does Queen have that much fate in the Prisoner Mines facilities to hold all the Prisoners kept within after it has been rampaged through by Big Mom? The gates through the mines have been destroyed, many cells have been left shattered leaving the prisoners within free to access the outside, and let’s not forget that Monkey D. Luffy is now not bound by any shackles or sea stone chains. Sure the Udon may have it’s back up gates but with Luffy and many other prisoners free, it seems apparent that Queen has grossly underestimated Luffy. Or it could just be that Big Mom terrified Queen so deeply that Queen could think of nothing else but trying to contain the monster that is Big Mom before she awakens.

One Piece Chapter 946 – The Great Wall Of Big Mom

In order to open up the opportunity to defeat the Yonko at a later time, Luffy needs to learn to survive Big Mom

As expected Luffy has put his foot in his mouth and attracted the wrath of an enraged Linlin. Fortunately for him, Linlin has not seen passed his disguise and realised who he is but chances are high that Linlin will come to recognize who Luffytaro is once he escapes the Prisoner Mines. What I am curious about is whether Big Mom will retain some of her core kindness once she remembers and reverts back to her fully realised Big Mom self.

One Piece Chapter 945 – Big Mom VS Queen

One Piece chapter 945 - Big Mom

Oh Linlin, you don’t even realise how terrifying that comment was

It’s on! The clash between two monstrous pirates has began and the stage is the Prisoner Mines. You can bet though that Luffy will be incorporated into the fight given Kid and Killer’s lives being on the line. You can also bet that Luffy will attract Linlin and Queen’s chagrin once he reveals that there is no O-Shiruko left because he ate it all up. The glorious, unexpected and unknown thorn in both their sides will continue to distress their egos.
