We are at the stage in the story where it becomes harder to consider new characters potential Straw Hat Pirates given the limited runway left in the manga. At the moment, no other character has been as closely linked to the Straw Hat Pirates and their end goal within the story as Yamato.

When you couple Yamato’s curiosity for the “Will of D” with Yamato’s desire to sail the seas, their love for adventure and their awareness of the “Dawn”, it seems apt to have such a character more closely tied to the Straw Hat Pirates and Law than not. And given Law’s interest in the history of D, he WILL be traveling alongside the Straw Hat Pirates to their next destination that involves further information sourced from the Poneglyphs and Road Poneglyphs (Robin is the only one who can translate the stone text for him).

Edens Zero Chapter 124 – Elsie VS Justice

Edens Zero chapter 124 - Elsie VS Justice

The differing winds of ideology guide two friends bound to each other into a conflict where they now stand opposed to one another. The belief in ones righteousness. The conviction behind ones actions. The perspective of ones truth. Within the subjective realm of reality, the concepts of right and wrong become hollow descriptors forming the judgement binding ones outlook. Having followed and fought for different ideas, the two can do naught but continue to struggle on the path before them. Yet, fated are their destinies. Bound in space, time, ether, heart and…blood.

[Theory] One Piece – The Adventures Yamato Followed Through The News

One Piece chapter 999 - Ace tell Yamato the story about his little brother, Luffy

I have compiled a list of images that details the news Yamato could have come across when following the Straw Hat Pirates journey from Luffy’s presence in Marineford to the events that saw Luffy releasing Yamato from their bindings imprisoning them for twenty years.

Edit note: it has been confirmed after chapter 1000 that Yamato began following the newspapers surrounding Luffy’s adventure after the Battle of Marineford (post Summit War). The disappearance of Ace’s vivre card led Yamato to inspecting the following days newspaper. Yamato learned that Ace was Roger’s son at that time and of Luffy being a pirate that was making a name for themselves. Post has been updated to remove the irrelevant points.

[Theory] One Piece – Yamato And The 3D2Y Moment

One Piece chapter 594 - Luffy rings and the Ox Bell in Marineford

Edit note: Post updated with developments from chapter 1,000.

The 3D2Y moment is definitely an intimate experience that establishes a powerful bond between the members of the Straw Hat Pirates and the readers feelings towards the main characters.

But if we do entertain the possibility that there will be another character added to the Straw Hat Pirates in the future, what would be the next best thing to bridge that gap for the 3D2Y moment?

One Piece Chapter 999 – Yamato And Ace

One Piece chapter 999 - Yamato expresses their dream

The freedom to sail. The freedom to adventure. The freedom to dream. The freedom to live. Underpinning Yamato’s enchantment with the world is the ability to experience it freely. Through the stories noted in Oden’s journal, Yamato has become fascinated with what lies beyond the borders of Wano. From the age of eight, Yamato has been holding onto the dream of going out to sea and on adventures. The appearance of Ace not only allowed Yamato to bond with someone appreciative of their dream but also have information conveyed about the new generation of pirates making a name for themselves in the world. Through such romanticism for adventure and freedom, Yamato has come to know about Luffy and his prominence in Ace’s eyes.

[Theory] One Piece – Yamato’s Devil Fruit

Edit: Chapter 1020 reveals that Yamato has the Inu Inu no Mi, Model: Okuchi no Makami. The below theories while wrong in there deductions were fun entertaining.

It has been hinted at in chapter 996 that Yamato has a different form they can transform into. Whether the transformation results from a Devil Fruit or through Yamato’s blood, at this point in time that is unclear. Yet, if we were to entertain the possibility that Yamato has a Devil Fruit, what potentially could it be? Having looked at the structure of the Wano Kuni Arc, Yamato’s role and potential relevance beyond Wano, I have been circling around the idea that Yamato has the Neko Neko no Mi, Model: Nue.

Edens Zero Chapter 123 – Shiki VS Justice

Edens Zero chapter 123 - Elsie arrives to save Shiki from Justice

The power to absorb a planet’s ether. The power to control the stars. The power to pass judgement. Justice driven by a pain sourced from his past with Elsie and a twisted view of righteousness, delivers his “heavenly body magic” onto Shiki. And with it he pronounces Shiki’s sentence – death. At having known Elsie, possessing the demon king’s power and the fear Justice has in Shiki’s potential, he embodies the role of the adjudicator and smites Shiki with his Meteor and Grand Chariot abilities. Fortunately, before Justice can deliver his final act of justice, Elsie arrives to save Shiki and combat Justice.

Kaiju No.8 Chapter 19-20 – Kafka VS Hoshino

Kaiju #8 chapter 20 - Kafka VS Hoshino

Exhilarating. How spectacularly intoxicating. Kafka in his Kaiju #8 form being forced to survive Vice-Commander Hoshino’s assaults was a sight to see. Kafka experienced first-hand the capabilities of Soshiro and how fighting an upper agent of the Defense Force is like. Kafka may have been holding back because Soshiro is his commanding officer but I wonder if Kafka could really have taken on someone of Soshiro’s capabilities if Kafka did not have that relation holding him back. Possibly, but it would have severely exhausted Kafka.What is clear though is that Kafka has a lot to learn and he definitely needs to be more careful around the Defense Force going forward. They are out to get Kaiju #8.
