[Theory] One Piece – The Unique Relevance Of Yamato

One Piece Treasure Cruise 6 - Yamato

All wars are won on information. And going forward as the focus turns to the Straw Hat Pirates being involved in more wars, the need for information becomes more crucial and necessary. Luffy may be the protagonist of the series but there is a limit to how far luck can carry a main character. Gol D Roger lost to a lack of information. Oden lost to a lack of information. Rocks lost to a lack of information. Big Mom lost to a lack of information. The Underworld Broker Joker aka Doflamingo lost to a lack of information. The Straw Hat Pirates lost to a lack of information in the past. Kaido will lose to a lack of information. Even the Lunarians and Ancient Kingdom likely lost to a lack of information.

One Piece Chapter 1032 – Zoro VS King: Flame

One Piece chapter 1032 - Zoro uses Dragon Twister on King

Limits are a concept Zoro has always pushed from his childhood when he desired to wield as many swords as possible, to humbling his pride when requesting Mihawk, the wall representing the obstacle he needs to overcome, to mentor him in the way of the sword all so he could eventually defeat Mihawk. To his current state of already being exhausted from fighting Big Mom and Kaido but having his body boosted from Mink medicine. The path Zoro is on has always been one directing him beyond his limits. In this moment the wall in front of him is King and the secrets behind his origins. In order for Zoro to devise a counter to King, he requires the power of knowledge.

One Piece Chapter 1031 – Sanji VS Queen: One Man’s Heart

One Piece Chapter 1031 - Sanji faces off against Queen

Whatever Sanji did during his blackout, he without a doubt didn’t harm a lady. Such a possibility is not only too obvious but it is grounded in a realm of improbability. Whatever happened to Sanji in the past, he never allowed harm to come to a lady in his presence, at least harm not paid back. There is a larger mystery in play beyond Sanji’s fears coming to reality. Not only has Sanji’s heart remained intact for all these years but his experimentation by Judge was varied from his siblings due to their mother, Sora. Whatever is going on with Sanji, it is different from what happened with Ichiji, Niji and Yonji.

One Piece Chapter 1030 – Challenging The Current Era

One Piece Chapter 1030 - Law and Kid awaken their powers against Big Mom

It is becoming increasing clear that the force that will challenge the current age won’t be just the Straw Hat Pirates but the next generation as a whole. Those that represent the powers standing against the status quo will be the architects for the future age for all intents and purposes. The Straw Hat Pirates won’t be alone in their fight against the past. As such, the focus given to the allies supporting the Straw Hat Pirates isn’t just a passing acknowledgement of their relevance but rather an expression of their continued importance to the change about to arise.

One Piece Chapter 1028 – Sanji VS Queen: Metamorphosis

One Piece Chapter 1028 - Sanji undergoes a conversion

Sanji’s body has undergone an internal transformation and unbeknownst to him, effects of Judge’s research have begun to bloom within him, a son Judge once thought a failure. Sanji’s fears are perceivable but the heart he has cultivated over the years will not be inconsequential in raising him up. Empathy and emotion won’t be rewritten by the power now imbuing his body. The change arising has become less Judge’s experiment and more a power now a part of Sanji. All Sanji needs to do is embrace the inevitable metamorphosis now taking place. The power is his and he can choose how to use it.

One Piece Chapter 1027 – Zoro VS King: Fury

One Piece Chapter 1027 - Zoro breaks part of King's mask

The mystery behind King’s appearance is starting to unravel and inevitably the form of such an enigma will be unmasked. What will Zoro witness when he accomplishes such an act and will the image before him resonate with a figure he knows? Or will the image of a Lunarian beckon more questions than answers? What is clear is that Zoro is beyond his limits and King has suffered a blow unknown to him. Both combatants look to end the battle without delay and through such fury their battle has led them to the surrounding land outside the Onigashima skull dome. Both are now free to unleash.

One Piece Chapter 1026 – Luffy And Momonosuke VS Kaido: Resolve

One Piece chapter 1026 - Luffy and Momonosuke VS Kaido

It has been an age of terror, grief and unfamiliarity for Momonosuke during the past few months. The heart mourning the loss of his parents still remains entrenched in the dread of darkness blanketing his world from that day. Such a trauma compelled him forward but also haunted him with his inabilities. Twenty years may have passed but for Momonosuke, the death of his mother and father was but moments ago. Sorrow still fresh continues to overwhelm him. Now face to face with Kaido and in a position to stand against such a terror, Momonosuke fights off his fears and thanks to Luffy’s words and support, commits himself to a path of resolve.

[Theory] One Piece – Yamato And Fish-Man Island

One Piece chapter 612 - Ryugu Palace and the dragon statue

When the Straw Hat Pirates visit Fish-Man Island again, I suspect the Island’s deeper relevance to the Void Century will be covered as the story threads of Poseidon, the “Ship of Promise” Noah, Wano and Luffy are weaved together. Obviously when that time comes, the Straw Hat Pirates are going to need someone who is both aware of Joy Boy and familiar with the Mythical Zoan Dragon Devil Fruit. Thankfully, Oda has crafted a character that fills such a purpose in the Wano arc i.e. Yamato.

[Theory] One Piece – The Story Relevance Of Yamato

One Piece chapter 999 - Yamato expresses their dream

Kozuki Oden had TWO wishes. One to open the borders of Wano and the second to assist the figure the world had been waiting for over the span of hundreds of years i.e. Luffy. It is pretty apparent at this point that Yamato has inherited the will of Oden and is currently fighting to see Wano Kuni liberated from Kaido and subsequently have the nation’s borders opened.

The battle which Oden mentioned would take place 20 years after his death was not just the battle against Kaido but also the battle against the World Government, the enemy which the Kozuki closed Wano Kuni’s borders to defend against. Yamato wants to fight on Luffy’s side. And such a desire will not only entail the battle against the Beast Pirates but also the inevitable battle Wano and those nations that align with their beliefs will have against the World Government when they become the target. Yamato’s wish to get stronger as he sails the seas before fighting in the war will manifest as they join the Straw Hat Pirates.

[Analysis] One Piece – Onigashima: Straw Hat Pirates VS Beast Pirates

One Piece Onigashima - Straw Hat Pirates VS Beast Pirates

The underlying theme behind the deconstruction of the Beast Pirates is the realignment of their forces allegiance. What initially began as a group of fighters that constituted two pirate crews, a few Samurai, a ninja and the Mink turned into hundreds than an army of thousands before the raid on Onigashima. Such a theme carried forward through the story of Onigashima with it still continuing. The disparity in numbers between the two forces continues to close with the Samurai Rebellion on the path to growing larger than the Beast Pirates force. It has been set-up to happen. And it will happen. The whole Onigashima story has been building up toward Luffy taking Yamato away from Kaido.
