This is a list of Wild Mass Guesses which are still possibly true. Just for Fun and silly guesses go on the silly page. If a WMG is Jossed, please move it to the jossed page, if it is Confirmed, please move it to the confirmed page.Please add new entries to the bottom of the page.
Kaido will be a Complete MonsterGiven what he did to Moriah, I'd say it's a safe bet.
Kaido will be a Shapeshifter or a ChangelingHe is Kaido of the "Hundred Beasts" after all.
The first half of the Grand Line is the All Blue.The All Blue is a legendary sea where all the main seas converge and sea life from all of them exist. Now think about this: if you look at a map of Reverse Mountain, there is an outlet to the Grand line from all four main seas. If ships can go through Reverse Mountain, so can sea life. We already know Laboon did. Wouldn't that mean that the first half of the Grand Line, particularly around Reverse Mountain, would actually be the All Blue?
Big Mom is Lola's mother.Lola herself says that she was born in the New World which is where Big Mom is at. Lola's crew also points out that Lola's mom is an extremely powerful pirate.
Joy BoyGuesses and theories related to Joy Boy.
When the Strawhat's see Laboon again Laboon will die right away.
Brook will die at the end of the series.Plenty of people speculate that Luffy will go out young in a blaze of glory, but Brook has the Unfinished Business trope already in effect. During his introduction in Thriller Bark he referred to his "second life" essentially being on a timer that will run out, but really it will last until he's at peace and can rest. (Oda does love to torture his characters, but making the loneliest character outlive all his loved ones again would surely be too cruel! So surely he's not immortal. Surely.)
Luffy can hear the Voice of All ThingsIn chapter 648, one of the seakings remarks he's sure Luffy could hear their conversation with Shirahoshi. This is followed by another pointing out that such a thing happened once before, and we get a brief flashback of Gol D. Roger trying to figure out where the seakings' voices are coming from in the middle of an open ocean.
Van Auger will kill YasoppGiving way to a You Killed My Father relationship between him and Usopp.
The final villian will be HigumaFor whatever reason, he suvived the Lord of the Coast and as a mountain bandit, is waiting on the other side of Reverse Mountain to take revenge on Luffy, or something. If this is true, we will have to rename Chekhov's Gunman to Higuma the Bear or the like. Approx 26 years between appearances, anyone?
We have already seen the ancient weapon PlutonAfter the bombshell of 649 that Shirahoshi is Poseidon, it doesn't seam unreasonable to think Pluton may also be a Person of Mass Destruction rather than an actual weapon or battleship. So we may have already been introduced to him or her, just by a different name. Personally, I suspect two candidates.
The Thousand Sunny is getting an upgrade.As I mentioned in the last WMG, Franky met up with Den, Tom's younger brother at Fishman Island, who is also a shipwright. With the timeskip, all of the Strawhats have gained an upgrade and new appearance... except the Sunny (since, as with Merry, it's made clear the ship is considered part of the crew). Even if Shirahoshi doesn't join as discussed above, I find it hard to believe the Sunny is going to leave Fishman Island without a redesign with the skills Franky picked up from Vega's lab, or whatever technology is found at Fishman Island.
Luffy will be given an offer to become a warlord.Which Luffy will deny.
The Sea Kings Themselves are SignificantThe Sea Kings that saved the Noah, talked with Shirahoshi, and were understood by Luffy were the same ones from when the Straw Hats accidentally ventured into the Calm Belt. While they do not seem to recognize the Straw Hats from that time, that they have traveled around the world at the exact same time (though it did take two and a half years...) cannot be coincidence. Not while Oda is the writer. What the significance is can be wildly guessed below.
The Ancient Weapon Zeus is a Devil FruitBut it is 'not' the Gura Gura No Mi, but the Weather Weather Devil Fruit. It would fit with the theme that we have seen with Ancient Weapons so far. While Pluton is a battleship made by Human hands, and Poseidon is a mermaid princess able to control the Sea Kings, then it would make sense that Zeus, the God of the Sky in Greek Mythology, would be a power that controls the weather. What better way to symbolize such power than have it be a Devil Fruit. Who is the current wielder of the Ancient Weapon: Zeus? Monkey D. Dragon.
When the journey finishes, the offspring of the Straw Hats will be the protagonists of the next generationWhile Oda might be finish with the franchise by then, if he's not then the successor would probably be called One Piece: The New Straw Hats. While these couples are not definite, I believe that the members will be:
Aokiji will become an ally to the Straw Hats.As of Chapter 650, it's been revealed that he left the Marines after Akainu took over Sengoku's former position. Considering that he already dislikes the corruption that's been going on under his watch, perhaps he'll team up with the Straw Hats at some point to take down the World Government, even if he doesn't actually join them.
The Blackbeard Pirates gaining multiple Devil Fruit powerswill not increase their strength as much as it could
Jinbe's duty is to his ex-crew.There is a reason why Camie told Luffy that if she told the details about the crew leaving Fishman Island after Jinbe's Warlord of the Sea status was revoked, it would be a long story (seen here). Also, there was some speculation to why the crew didn't join the fight against Hody and where they are now. It's possible that the crew is no longer in good terms with Jinbe (especially after Jinbe continued to be a Warlord and remained friendly with Whitebeard after Fisher Tiger's death and Queen Otohime's (supposed) assassination by a human.) Perhaps Jinbe wants to reconcile with his crew before he joins the Straw Hats and explain to them what had really happened.
An idea regarding the three Ancient WeaponsAs of chapter 650, it's confirmed there are three weapons: Poseidon, Pluton, and Uranus. All seem to be named for Greek or Roman deities. In mythology, Poseidon and Hades (aka Pluto) were brothers and their father was Uranus. And because he feared a prophecy that a son would overthrow him, Uranus ended up eating his children until Zeus stopped him. Thus it seems possible that Pluton and Poseidon are of somewhat-equal power, while Uranus turns out to be the most powerful. Or perhaps have some ability that enables control over the other two.
Shiryu's nodachi is Shodai Kitetsu.His weapon certainly seems ominous enough, and it would make the inevitable clash with Zoro all the more interesting.
There will be a Marijose arc.The Strawhats will not be directly involved, instead, we'll be looking at all of the members of royalty we've been introduced to so far, and their entourages. With delegates from Alabasta, Sakura, Black Drum, and Ryuuguu most of whom are impressive combatants, it would be a shame to have them stand around and talk. During the Reverie, the Conference of Kings, Dragon's army will attack, and try to take hostages, possibly with another goal in mind regarding a resource the Marines have acquired (allies, weapons, hostages, technologies, etc.). Since we have a bunch of them, the Vice-Admirals will be involved, and this will act as an introduction to the Revolutionary army proper, with one or two more powerful subordinates of Dragon with equal importance as Ivankov showing up.
Blackbeard killed Thatch after the latter ate the Dark-Dark FruitIt's been confirmed that Blackbeard's ability to steal Devil Fruit powers off of corpses is not apparently related to the Dark-Dark Fruit itself. Marco said that they already knew something was odd about his body. It's perfectly within the realm of possibility that Blackbeard killed Thatch only after he'd eaten the Devil Fruit. It may in fact be how the Whitebeards even knew something was strange about him.
There appears to be an elemental theme with the Straw HatsZoro is associated with air/wind attacks such as his Tatsumaki and Pound Hou techniques, and post-timeskip, he can create tornados with one attack. Sanji's Diable Jambe involves lighting his leg on fire and post-timeskip, he can ignite his entire body on fire and transfer that fire onto his opponent. Nami's frequently used weather attacks have to do with lightning and wind. Franky has to with metal/steel, with how his body is comprised of metal and also his use of technology and artillery. Usopp post-timeskip can now shoot plants. Brooke appears to be a mix of sound/music and post-timeskip he can manipulate his own soul to leave his body and possess others.
The next level of HakiThe most interesting thing that I find about Haki is that its different uses are described as colors. Not only that, but there are three primary colors to Haki. If you take that metaphor an run with it, then the next level of Haki, and by proxy the next step in Luffy's development, will be learning how to "mix" different colors of Haki to produce new and different effects.
Letter for LuffyIt's pretty obvious that Robin met Dragon over the time skip, but what about Sabo (assuming he's still alive)? If they met, I could see Sabo wanting to give Robin a message to Luffy for him (through letter or otherwise) in the New World, but not before because he doesn't want to distract him with the fact that the brother he thought was dead for years is still alive and kicking while making the dangerous voyage through Fishman Island.
One Piece is the sea sea fruitIt is a gamebreaker beyong compare it fits the weapon that will bring chaos to the world status and is the bigest possible treasure that can be composed of one piece.
Big Mom (or one of her crew) will make Luffy destroy Fishman Island.I cannot tell yet if it will be a Devil Fruit power or a well thought out plan... My most likely guess is that Luffys battle with Big Mom will be so big that it will cause so much damage to the island.
Luffy will lose his battle against Big MomI mean, let's face it. Yes, we all know that Luffy's strong, but honestly if Luffy were to beat one of the Four Emperors Oda would pretty much be handing him the title of King of the Pirates straight away, and that would be no fun whatsoever. Unless it turns out that Big Mom is the weakest of the four, and she'd have to be a hell of a lot weaker to justify Luffy winning, Luffy is gonna lose the battle. However, as the deal was for Big Mom to direct her anger towards Luffy instead of Fishman Island, she will leave it unharmed.
All the theories on One Piece are wrong, at it really is just a whole load of treasure
Akainu will get a relatively happy endingBecause Oda wants to troll his audience, especially fangirls,as it has become evident from some of one piece's past events.
Haki is the willpower Oda uses to answer many of the SBS questionsAnd the protagonists(as well as some of the adagonists)have been using it from the beggining to pull of all the determinator stuff. Zoro especially uses it to survive and ,possibly,after the battle with Mr 1 to <<hear the breath of all things>>.
A theory about how the Yami Yami no Mi allows the user to have many Devil Fruit's powersThe Yami Yami no Mi have shown to grant a couple of abilities so far. First, control over gravity, second, some sort of pocket dimension inside his darkness which can absorb and release things from, and third, while in contact with a devil fruit user, the darkness "suck" the devil fruit's powers. Now, the latter one is a little ambiguous, it may just mean that if you're a devil fruit user and are in contact with the darkness you can't use your power, and if your body was an altered one the it reverts back to your original biology, or it could mean the darkness actually "suck" whatever magic Devil Fruits work on. If the latter is true, then you could get a Devil Fruit and absorb it inside the pocket dimension inside the darkness, where you'll be constantly "sucking" the devil fruit power. Ta-Daa, you have access to another devil fruit power and don't have to worry about exploding because you haven't eat the Devil Fruit.
The Straw Hats will have "control" of all three superweaponsOf course this ties in with the batch of WMG's saying "Shirahoshi will become a Straw Hat," though even if she doesn't, she'd still be closely aligned with them, placing Poseidon at their disposal should they ever truly need it. Franky likely retains some memory of Pluton while Robin can read the poneglyphs that detail its construction, so this leaves only Uranus unaccounted for, which could very likely fall into their orbit. It would fit with the theme of the Straw Hats becoming continually more dangerous to world peace (not because they are pirates, but because Robin is the survivor of Ohara or Luffy is the son of the revolutionary) and amp it up to eleven.
Uranus Pluto or the one piece is a time machineor/and
Uranus is the one piece
The Yomi Yomi no mi worked perfectly wellBrook said that he could not find the way back to his body because of the fog but who can say that the fruit was not supposed to let his body become a skeleton when he died? It gave him new powers,and he seems to function perfectly well, even without his organs. So the fruit gives you more power and lets you literally live a second life, since everyone you know will be either dead or old by the time you resurrect and you can make new friends and live in a world you are unfamiliar with (you know, just like a second life, a literal fresh beginning). It also makes sure that whatever killed you is far away by the time you revived. As for why Brook said that he could not resurrect because of the mist that made him unable to return to his body I have three theories. 1)He would not be able to find his way anyway but, due to his location, he passed it off as mist, 2) the fact that the place he died had mist was a coincidence, but as a soul he could only see the mists OF THE UNDERWORLD (come to think of it, considering the location he died, the similarity between the two mists may have been more than a coincidence), and 3) he lied because he did not remember anything, but his mind filled the voids anyway. As for why the fruit made him return before his hair was eradicated i have two theories: 1) it would not hurt his new abilities, so the fruit allowed his soul to return anyway, or 2) the fruit allows all his users to keep their hair (and it conserves them for all these years) so that they can retain a part of their past life.
The final arc will have many big badsEssentially a big bad ensemble featuring Blackbeard and the world government (or/and, assuming it does not control the world government, the entity Doflamingo is loyal to [if it controls it then it is a part of it, even if it considers it just a puppet). Other important persons, big bads, big goods or big neutrals like the supernovas, Mihawk, Vegapunk, Shanks or/and Dragon may or may not also stir some chaos.
Dr. Vegapunk will remain The Faceless
The final arc will not take place on RaftelAlthough some important battle will. [the battle with either one of the supernovas or a warlord of the sea (including blackbeard)
Everyone who has the will of D also has the conqueror HakiNote that a)some of them (like Ace) might not realise it and b) the inverse is not true (you can have the conqueror haki without the will of D)
Luffy and Ace were, in some point, mixedAce sleeps spontaneously, like his grandfather, Garp and Luffy has been compared with Gol D. Rogers one time too many for it to be an coincidence. This would also lead to the interesting point of the real Ace being alive (Luffy)and the real Luffy being dead (Ace). Also, for those who noted the age difference, note that this may have happened when they were older than babies, but still too young to remember (the lady who was taking care of them mixed them up at first, they got used to it, and they grew too much for Garp to recognize them on his next meeting).
Shanks will die before Luffy can meet him again.Blackbeard will get to Shanks before Luffy can and kill him, and it'll give a powerful motivation for Luffy against Blackbeard.
The Seven Warlords of the Sea all had their dreams crushedlet's see what we know: Kuma: resigned himself to the world government for some reason, doing anything they wanted. Hancock: serves the ones who enslaved her. Crocodile: lost a very important duel with Whitebeard. Mihawk: is constantly bored and wants more exciting battles constantly, so he is either trying to drown his sorrow or he is a Death Seeker. Moria: lost his crew (which is implied he loved) in the new world. Doflamingo: there's got to be a reason for his nihilism , which will be surely revealed via a very tragic flashback in due time. Jimbei: Same as Hancock, when the man he worshiped died. Blackbeard: only feigned becoming one to gain entrance to the most well guarded prison of the world, so he does not count. Mind you, I do not mean that they do not have some dream now, just that their dreams got crushed at one point before becoming Warlords.
the strawhats will have a battle with the Redhaired piratesWhether it will be a "you shall not pass unless you prove us that you are strong enough to survive" incident, a friendly (but still all out) battle for the pirate honor, or a brainwashed and crazy incident, I do not know.
Blackbeard's swordsman will beat MihawkThus giving Zoro a very good reason to participate to the battle with Blackbeard.
Big Mom will have Hidden DepthsBecause she seems like an anticlimatic reason to do everything for sweets
Nami and Usopp from after the timeskip could beat Luffy from before the timeskip
Akainu didn't have an elemental advantage over Aokiji.In fact, the Hie Hie no Mi and Magu Magu no Mi are equal opposites among Logias. Cold vs Heat... Just look at the Aokiji's monstrous freezing abilities, such as covering a chunk of ocean for a week and instantly halting giant tsunamis. While Akainu's magma would melt Aokiji's ice upon contact, but Aokiji could just freeze the magma into solid rock (Which might in fact be Akainu's elemental weakness that makes him tangible). This went on back and forth throughout the whole battle until Aokiji's stamina finally ran out.
Aokiji will join the strawhatsI have a very solid reasoning for that. So solid that it will blow your mind away. Well,here it goes...ahem,if he does,I will be the one laughing, while if he does not, I will have nothing to lose.
Kaidou is Franky's fatherI'm honestly surprised this wasn't here already. We know Franky's father was a pirate around the time of Roger who abandoned him in Water Seven. Also, when X Drake attacked an island supposedly part of Kaidou's territory, one of the people there had weapons built into him, almost cyborg-like. Now, assuming of course that Franky's father isn't some to-be-introduced character down the road, Kaidou makes a good choice. Franky has always been a builder, but his early works were less than stellar until he got proper tutelage from Tom. Franky's works were failures/destructive, Kaidou tossed him out, and here we are today. This leads to a second theory I came up with...
Kaidou will try to recruit FrankyIf Kaidou is mechanically inclined and likes cyborg type troops, Franky would be ideal. If the above theory is true, it adds extra spice to the idea as Kaidou, not knowing "Franky" is a nickname, would not be likely to catch on that it's Cutty Flam.
Luffy will Destroy Fishman Island by leading the Fishmen to the surface.Luffy will destroy Fishman Island by leaving it deserted, while the merpeople and fishpoeple who used to live there will immigrate to the land on the surface. Evil Counterpart to Sanji.
Bepo and Pekomsare Minkmen, or "Fur People" They both are Talking Animals with dot eyes and a similar body structure (such as their small feet). Minkmen are mentioned on Duval's list of slave prices, but have not been shown yet. Slasher Smile, either, just a warm, friendly smile that hides the fact that his dreams have been crushed and a lot of people are going to pay for letting them die. It will probably be the most horrifying thing ever published in Shonen Jump.
It is not the World Nobles who are descended from the Twenty Kings, but the D. FamiliesNot only that, but all the Kings were from different species. The Gol, Portgaz, Monkey and Marshall Kings were human, the Jaguar King was a giant, and all the others were a mixed bag of Longarms and Longlegs, fishmen and merfolk. In total, there are twenty families who carry the initial D., and every member is a descendant of the King that had that name. The Void Century was a ploy to help hide that fact, and somewhere there is a Poneglyph that reveals it.
Zoro (with or without the rest of the Straw Hats) will go the the Wano Country and defeat the samurais there.
Vivi is PlutonLike how Shirahoshi is Poseidon, and the Water 7 blue prints are either a decoy they forgot was a decoy or a weapon to harness Pluton.
Going by the above Uranus is also a princessA princess who will bond with the straw hats, but she will actually join the crew
The 'enlightenment' that comes with a human eating a model of the Hito Hito no Mi is instinctive use of Haki, or enhancing it to the point of mastery.We already know one could became a Buddha statue.
If Law is in fact a Warlord of the Sea, he has been sent to Wano Country by the World Government on a mission to force them to cease their Isolationism.Either as a test of his abilities before making his Warlord status official, or if he is already a full Warlord of the Sea, he has volenteered for the job so that he has an excuse to enter the new world at the same time as Luffy.
The wind that stopped the fire in the Grey Terminal was caused by Dragon's devil fruitThis ties in with the theories that he had a wind-type devil fruit.
The Mero Mero no Mi's power isn't what we think.Rather than turning people to stone, it just amplifies lust. Turning to stone is something biological humans do when overcome with lust. This would explain the two times that Sanji turns to stone;
Sanji is from the Samurai nation of Wa.It would explain why he knows why a "topknot" hairstyle is a typical one there. Also, depending on how much the island is like feudal Japan, that would also explain where Sanji got his strict upbringing. How he made it to East Blue, I have no clue.
Buggy will be a genuine threat when he next appearsKing of tying with the WMGs that Buggy is a warlord: After all, he'd have to get stronger otherwise he'd be screwed. Besides that, even if he isn't a warlord, it's probably common knowledge that he was on Roger's crew, so chances are both Marines and bounty hunters would be chasing him. And with such an "infamous" pirate, they'd have to be pretty strong.
All the Straw Hats have a two-syllable name, meaning the next crewmate(s) will have also a two-syllable name
Caribou is the Buggy of the New WorldHe has a reason to continue pursuing Luffy. He was introduced as someone to be feared, and after a run-in with a certain Straw Hat he's been reduced to more of a laughing stock. Plus, if Buggy is busy with things like being a Warlord as some other theories suggest, then they need someone else to fill the roll of the guy who chases Luffy even though he'll never beat Luffy. This would also tie in with the WMG of the Fishman Island arc being a mesh or echo of the East Blue events.
Zoro's closed eye is the One Piece version of an eyepatch.In case you didn't know, pirates actually wore eyepatches so that if they ever had to fight below-decks, they could open that eye and see better in the dark. So maybe if Zoro is ever stuck in a place where it's so dark he can't see, he'll open his other eye and see perfectly/better than with his non-scarred eye. I'd be very surprised if Oda doesn't know about the eyepatch in the dark thing considering how much research into pirates he's done already.
The next member to join the Straw Hat crew will be...Vivi, Bon Clay, Hancock, or Jimbei. Vivi may be a bit of stretch due to her being all the way in Alabasta, and who knows if Bon Clay is still alive. As for Hancock and Jimbei, Hancock's love for luffy may make her preform a huge Heel-Face Turn and join his crew to forsake her Warlord title. Not to mention in Jimbei's case, once Luffy asks you to join his crew, 90 percent of the time, that person's joining.
A past Goro Goro no Mi user was responsible for Raijin Island's never ending lightning storm.As it was first implied with Ace making it stop snowing, and later shown in the present with Aokiji and Akainu creating an island of ice and fire, Logias affect the weather with their mere presence and can permanently change it when going all out.
Theory about how Luffys bounty is going to raise over 400 mil,to join Jimbe join the crew(his bounty is currently higher than Luffys and Oda never put someone into the crew with a higher bounty than Luffy,so far.
Jinbei will join luffy's 'crew' but not in the way everyone is thinking.Partially in response to the above WMG, but also to theories about Jinbei in general. Jinbei told luffy to ask him agan in the future, as he has something to do first, this will be gathering the members of the sun pirates. Once Jinbei has done this, rather than join the core Strawhat crew, Jinbei will become Luffys First 'Division Commander'. Luffy has already claimed Fishman Island as under his protection, this was his first step towards being a Yonkou, but realistically he wont be able to turn around and protect it while halfway to Raftel. Of course as Luffy conquers more islands, he is going to have to recruit new 'Division Commanders' in the style of Whitebeard, these people will be left to oversee the protection of Luffys 'Turf', Jinbei and the Sun pirates being left in charge of Fishman Island. The Gourosei mentioned that Marko the Pheonix and the remenents of the Whitebeard Pirates were some of the people strong enough to take on Teach. It is likely that Luffy will meet Marko and co at some point in the new world, who will then decide to fly under the banner of the Straw Hat, adding any turf they have managed to retain control of to luffy's. This will be done to avoid the possibly reptetative number of arcs involving Luffy conquering Islands.
The real tenth strawhat.Partly response to the WMG above and partly a theory I've been thinking about for a long time. If Jinbe really isn't going to join the Strawhats as an active member(as in:going towards Raftel,andventuring and having sever hedaches because of Luffy) than I think it may be Sabo who'll fill this post. There is a debate wheter the horribly injured someone who Dragon brought on his ship after leaving Goa kingdom was Sabo or not,but for the sake of guessing let's say it was indeed him,and he's still alive and kickin to this very day. I'm also prety sure that the Strawhats sooner or later must meet with the Revolutionaries and Dragon, and in case Sabo really is still alive,he's probably still with them. How and why will he join? I don't have the slightest clue but it's going to be awesome!!!
Now that Law is a confirmed Warlord of the Sea and will most likely be fought, Sanji will fight Bepo.Just saying it before anyone else.
Law was just recruiting new pirates just to become a Warlord.Thinking back about it, it makes sense, since Law was shown talking to and recruiting a ex-slave pirate who was escaping Sabaody. Though it borders on Fridge Horror, since we haven't actually even seen the rest of his crew yet.
Rockstar the Rookie of the Red-Hair pirates will reapear.When the time comes for Luffy to finally reunite with Shanks he(or somebody else who wasn't with the crew 10 years ago on Dawn island) will spot the Thousand Sunny first, and run to Shanks while trembling with fear when delivering the news, of the dreadded Strawhats arrival. Afterall their public image is something like: 'Everyone in our way is going to be horribly pummeled. NO EXCEPTIONS', plus they might get a huge raise on their bounty, which would indeed frighten the living crap out of someone who dosen't knows them, and I see no reason why would Shanks or the other elite members bother telling anything to the lesser recurits about their days in East Blue. Plus it would mirror the scene in the anime where Mihawk delivers Luffy's newly issued bounty poster(30,000,000) to Shanks.
Punk Hazard is not the full name of the island the crew is onInstead, it's a shortened version that everyone knows it by. My guess is that the full name is actually Vegapunk Hazardous Waste/Experimenting Facility. The idea came to me when the liquid/gas/whatever it is that's the boss talked about how he doesn't like Vegapunk. Crazy I know, but it's a thought anyway.
On Raftel, wether it be the one piece or not, There is some kind of time based anomaly or machine, luffy is destined to go through it by himself when he is in his late 20's-early 30's, and will emerge from the other side roughly 60 years in the past.No one will know his name, and he cannot reform his old crew, in some cases becuase they have not been born yet, but mainly becuase if he was to effect his crews lives in the past then important events in the future wouldnt happen. As such he will start a new crew, beggining with his mentor Rayleigh, a meeting he will claim to be destiny. However, again due to the complications of time travel, he cannot keep his name, so he will adopt a new one. Gol. D Roger. I may have got the math wrong in terms of how far in the past he will travel, and how old he will be when he does, but you get the idea, im mainly basing the age and timeframe on rogers appearance when he first meets Rayleigh. Anyone who has read the series up to the current chapter and has been paying attention should understand what has lead me to this conclusion. Anyone familliar with the plot and characters of BlazBlue should understand how this works.
Black Beard's Ultimate plan is to rid everyone of their powers of devil fruitsHis original devil fruit, the Darkness Darkness fruit, can nullify Devil Fruit powers. Now that he has obtained the Quake Quake Fruit, who else think that his ultimate plan is to combine both of these fruits together to make a world spanning tremor that causes destruction throughout the land, as well as rids the entire world of Devil Fruit Powers. This would ultimately make him the strongest candidate for Pirate King, as so many people's fighting prowess are based off the utilization of their devil fruit.
Luffy, Zoro, Sanji might, or at least one of them will kick the bucketThink about how taxing their techniques are, and the kind of battles they go through. Luffy basically wrecking his battle with every fight as well as the taxing his Gears do on his body, Zoro with his wounds, and Sanji literally SETTING HIS LEGS ON FIRE. This might beg the question that eventually, one or more of the crew will pass on, probably being replaced later on]
Bonney is Ace's LoverAnd pregnant with his child! They're both from South Blue, it's not that far-fetched to imagine. Okay, it is, but this is a W.M.G., right? And she was rather pissed with Akainu...that's all I got.
Robin is a clone (or some similar situation) of her motherI haven't completely caught up (I've just spoiled myself a bit), so if there's something that irrevocably Josses this, my apologies. Anyway, if the Flower-Flower Fruit can result in the creation of entire doppelgangers, who's to say that Robin isn't actually such a duplicate of her mother with Fake Memories?
Law is trying to find Sniper IslandThe real reason Law has been taking people's hearts is because he's looking for Sniper Island. He only came up with the idea of sending those hearts to the marines after he failed to find it in any of them, and figured he had to get SOME use out of them.
Law gave Luffy multiple heartsA bit of a thought process for this one. We know Law can remove hearts (Ex: The 100 pirate hearts and Smoker). We also know he operated on Luffy. What would Luffy need multiple hearts for? Simple. More hearts = more blood flowing, more blood flowing = better Gear 2nd, and less drawbacks since he has multiple organs working together to perform Gear 2nd rather than just one. Now, I understand that there would be no reason for Law to give Luffy multiple hearts, nor any reason that Law should even know how Gear 2nd works. Then again, Rob Lucci found out how Gear 2nd worked just by watching it... Maybe Law did too, and wanted to give Luffy a power boost as so he could become a strong opponent one day? This is merely a theory, of course.
Emasculating Sanji is going to be a running gag.He's been sent to an island of transvestites, forced to join in, and has most recently been transfered to Nami's body. I doubt it's going to end any time soon.
Rather than ten Straw Hats plus Luffy...There will be twelve. Main reason I think this is because Luffy got four crew members before heading into the Grand Line, and then another four in the first half of the Grand Line... which makes me suspect that he will get another four in the New World. I know there's evidence that there will be ten (Luffy himself saying he wanted ten crew members at the beginning of his journey), but given that it's Luffy I doubt he'd let such an arbitrary statement (if he even remembers it) stop him from recruiting someone if they want to join and he likes them (and plus, he said he wanted ten crew members before entering the Grand Line). Additionally... given what a fantastic Chessmaster Oda is, I wouldn't be surprised if he's realized how popular the idea of there being ten Straw Hats (not counting Luffy) is, and since he loves throwing curve balls to catch us off-guard...
Law is going to swap the hearts of the other Straw Hats.Speaks for itself. I'm personally hoping for Luffy to become Brook, Brook to become Usopp, Usopp to become Zoro, Zoro to become Robin and Robin to become Luffy.
Blackbeard is a test tube baby engineered by VegapunkReasoning being that Vegapunk knows the deeper mechanics behind the Devil Fruits and Blackbeard has some kind of anomalous body type that allows him to steal others' Devil Fruit powers. I personally believe Vegapunk will be a deeply conflicted good guy, so I'm guessing this little screw-up came during one of his worse For Science! phases and hearing of Blackbeard's deeds will leave him muttering My God, What Have I Done?.
One Piece is a device or gateway towards the world's collective consciousness.That's why it was necessary, during the Void Century, to hide it at Raftel, the "impossible to reach" island—the ancients had discovered a way for people to be conscious of one another, leading to global understanding and peace. The ancestors of the Tenryuubito wished to oppress the world for their own benefit and force the people to work for them, so they fought a massive war with the intent to destroy that object and marginalize all knowledge of it. But since they couldn't get rid of it, they opted to instead hide it while erasing all knowledge of its existence—the entire century, just to be certain. D stands for "Descendant"—descendants of the ancients who used the device. That's why Gol D. Roger was able to hear the "voice of all things" and write the ancient characters on the Shandorian Belfry on Sky Island. Luffy and the others might too discover that they have that ability. That's why, as Whitebeard mentioned, the world will be "completely turned upside down" when it's found.
The CP 9 have become even stronger after the time skipIt wouldn't suprise me if all of the CP 9 have become much stronger since fighting the Straw Hats at enies lobby.
What will happen when the Strawhats finally land on an inhabited islandThere will be either mass panic or mass celebration.
That isn't really Bon Kurei.Chapter 666 shows us that a "Bon-sama" is the new Queen of the Newkamas. However, we never see "Bon's" face. This can mean one of two things. 1: That isn't really the old Bon Kurei, and he will be the 3rd character to die outside of a flashback in One Piece (depending on Brownbeard's current status, it might be 4th.). 2: Bon got some sort of face disfiguration from Magellan. Whether it is heroic scars or a Duval-esque makeover, who knows.
The 'you know who' that Caribou refered to as wanting to know that Shirahoshi is Posiedon, is Crocodile .This would also explain why he enlisted under the Fake Luffy just so that he could kill Luffy, Caibou is working directly for Crocodile. Crocodile will have sent him, another logia, to try to kill Luffy, ( in typical Crocodile fashion), so that even if he didnt succeed, he could gage how much of a theat he would be if he meets him again, namely wether he has armament Haki. Of course, while Crocodile may no longer be interested in Pluton, who says hes given up on all the ancient weapons?
At one point or another, the Strawhats will end up on Sniper IslandTheir hearts will lead them there.
Crocus and Clover are somehow related, most likely brothers.Both of them are old, have little no no regard for the world government, and have been named after flowers and gornw their hair as such. And think about it; most people wouldn't have stayed with Laboon. While they'd care deeply about him, and would pity the whale they'd still want more adventure and would leave, like Luffy and crew. Crocus is staying with Laboon because he knows what a it feels like to lose someone important to you, as he lost his brother in the Ohara incident. Also, they seem to be around the same age, and are really the only two characters named after plants that have styled their hair as such.
The "someone" Clown reminds Law of is Eustass Kidd
The Heart Pirates arn't dead, they are each undertaking their own trainingThe reason why we havnt seen Law's cew is not that he killed them or Clown has them, he actually worked out what Kuma had done to the Straw Hats, and decided that he would follow suit, disbanding his crew so that they could each become stronger before entering the New World. Also as he planned to go to Punk Hazard, he told them not to come with him in case they got killed.
Kidd will team up with Law and Luffy to take down Big Mom.Between the Chekhov's Gun of him attacking her allies, and these arcs all possibly being part of the "Super Rookie Saga", the concept seems fairly obvious. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say he's going to join them at Wano, which shall be the next and probably last destination before the assault on Whole Cake Island.
Kizaru will fight and lose to Blackbeard.So far, nobody has gotten Kizaru to be completely serious in a fight. Now, given how Oda did his reasearch involving Rayleigh arriving to fend off Kizaru, and that a black hole will absorb anything, including light...
Zoro's gonna get a new sword soon.As we know, Zoro's current swords are Wado Ichimonji (from the second strongest group of 21 swords), Shuushi (also from that group) and Sandai Kitetsu (from the third strongest group of 50 swords). One of his swords is weaker than the others, so it makes sense that he'll get a new sword to replace it. Sandai Kitetsu means 'Third Demon Splitter' and we were told when he got it that there's also a Second and First Demon Splitter. The Second Demon Splitter (I think it's 'Nidai Kitetsu') is of the same group as Zoro's other two swords, and due to its strength it would make sense that its owner is somewhere in the New World. So it's possible that Zoro could defeat him and take the sword. He may later obtain the First Demon Splitter (Shodai Kitetsu?) as it's of the strongest group of 12 swords that Mihawk's sword is also from (and therefore possibly his only hope against him). (Anyone with a better knowledge of Zoro's Japanese sword names that me, please correct me if I got any of the names wrong).
Sniper Island is in the New World, located just before Raftel.All of the New World paths will converge either at Sniper Island or slightly before it, and upon landing at Sniper Island, the Log Poses will point directly to Raftel. However, Sniper Island exists in people's hearts. That means a person (or a crew) would have to possess a certain state of mind to access it. Otherwise, it will not show itself. That state of mind is empathy towards others, selflessness, and a lack of greedy thoughts (in other words, a pure heart), traits which are at odds with most of those wanting the One Piece because it would make them rich and famous. This is the reason why nobody has claimed the One Piece yet: Because everyone who's made it this far into the New World wants the One Piece for selfish reasons, Sniper Island doesn't appear for them, preventing them from tracing the path on their Log Poses necessary to reach Raftel. This will also be a stopping point for Blackbeard, as he can't get past Sniper Island. It's likely that Blackbeard has already reached where Sniper Island should be and, frustrated at his inability to progress, has taken up the role of Emperor in the New World, hoping that someone from a land he's conquered has the capability. So far, he's had no success, but when the Straw Hat Pirates reach the island, it WILL appear because Luffy and his crewmates possess all of the above personality traits. Blackbeard will get wind of this, make his way onto Sniper Island before Luffy leaves and the island vanishes, and confront Luffy once and for all right here. Alternatively, Raftel IS Sniper Island, in which case the same ideas hold. This would explain why the Marines have also not been able to reach Raftel, despite their ability to travel freely within the Calm Belt: The ones with the authority to do so have impure hearts or have other priorities, and the ones who have pure hearts (such as Coby) don't have the authority. Thus far, Luffy has proven to be pure due to his immunity towards Boa Hancock's powers and is already able to access Sniper Island. Zoro and Chopper too. Usopp, Robin, and Franky don't yet have the heart, but they are good people and can achieve it with dedication. Nami, Sanji, and Brook are very impure and would need major Character Development. It's difficult to get a good reading on Trafalgar Law, but I doubt he meets Sniper Island's requirements as he runs on Grey and Gray Morality. Eustass Kidd is very far from it (perhaps even less pure than Blackbeard), is not likely to change, and may be the character who will introduce the audience to the trait of the island. Of the Four Emperors, Whitebeard was an upstanding enough man that he's likely able to reach Sniper Island and has seen the One Piece himself, and Portgas D. Ace can also reach it, but Ace had Honor Before Reason and was fatally sidetracked. Shanks can reach Sniper Island but chooses not to as he's waiting for Luffy. Kaido and Big Mom cannot reach Sniper Island as they're ruthless. Thus, Luffy is the only character so far who has the conditions necessary to reach Sniper Island and has a goal that requires landing on the island.
Crocodile was once related to a royal family in West Blue, but was ultimately betrayed by them due to an incident concerning an ancient weapon which they claimed it's for the greater good.So far only guardians (usually royal families) and people who can read Poneglyphs know about the ancient weapons. Also Crocodile seemed to hate Cobra on an oddly personal level, going so far as to call him a hypocrite.
Dragon is Gold Roger, who is PlutonProbably plenty of things to disprove this, but I'll say it anyway. When Roger and Shiki clashed, Roger won because of a change in the weather, which Dragon seems to be able to do. Yeah, he's was shown to have his head chopped off, but bear with me here... although Poseidon turned out to be Shirahoshi, Pluton must be robotic, 'cause they said it has blueprints, right? Well, what if it's a cyborg. Dr Vegapunk (he was said to have built Pluton), made Gold Roger a cyborg (Shiki said in their clash that he had an apocalyptic weapon), and also did.. something to him that stopped him from being killed.. somehow. Then, he became Dragon. All of this is kept beyond top-secret by the WG, to save face (imagine the uproar if everyone knew that the Pirate King was still alive). Yeah, this WMG is probably full of holes, but it's too damn awesome to not say.
Mihawk hasn't been a Warlord for as long as most people believed.It was stated that two years prior to the Time Skip Ace had been offered a chance at becoming one of the Seven Warlords (which he refused), meaning that a spot was open at that time. Crocodile had been working on Baroque Works in Alabasta for around four years, hinting that he had been a Warlord for at least that long; Moriah had been sailing in the Florian Triangle for something like a decade, a good indication of the minimal timespan he had the Warlord title; and it had been confirmed that both Hancock and Jinbe had been Warlords for at least ten years. Of the three remaining Warlords: Doflamingo and Kuma seemed really familiar with each other, fellow Warlords, and also many high ranking Marines. So it wasn't much stretch to guess that they had been Warlords for quite some time (if not the longest time). That left Mihawk, who was both portrayed as the most secluded and the least reliable Warlord to the Marines.
Lola will propose to Jabra & he will accept.This theory isn't meant to be as silly as it sounds. Lola proposes to everyone she meets. Jabra was a bit depressed over breaking up with his girlfriend Gatherine. Lola does resemble Gatherine facially so Jabra will buck the trend and say 'yes'. Not only is this awesomely funny, with Lola being an ally of the Straw Hats, it provides a link for the Ex-Cipher Pol Pirates to link to the Straw Hats at some point.
The straw Hat's adventures after the Time Skip will resemble their past adventures, but in reverse.In the first story arc after the time skip, the Straw Hats explore an island filled with bubble technology, and the major conflict was based on human-fishman racism/slavery. Very similar to what happened at Sabody. In the second story arc, the Straw Hats explore a seemingly-abandoned island filled with impossible monsters who turn out to be manufactured (including one giant, "undefeatable" monster). Very similar to Thriller Bark. If this trend continues, the third island will be a densely-populated metropolis, and there may be a government conspiracy going on.
Law isn't just in an alliance with Luffy, but with Kid and Drake too.So far all we know for sure about Law's plans are that he wants to take down one of the yonko. At the end of the end of the Fishman Island Arc it's mentioned by one of Big Mom's crew (can't remember which) that Kid had taken down 2 of their ships. Drake was also seen attacking one of Kaido's islands (and makes it clear that Kaido ids the reason he's doing it). Essentially I think that all of the biggest supernovas Brownbeard mentioned, or at least most of them, are all planning to work together to take down all of the 4 yonko to replace them. At the moment it seems that Big Mom would be their primary target due to being the weakest (she was pressured into making a deal with Luffy because of Kid's attacks).
Law became a member of the revolutionaries over the time skipWe know that Kuma was one of them and probably became a Warlord so he could spy on the government. When Dragon heard he'd been turned into a living weopon he might have contacted many known pirates to talk them into joining up, preferably those that have something against the government. As for why Law is going after the yonko, Dragon is against any kind of high authority figure that abuses their power, not just the government (though they are his his first choice for attack). We've seen that Big Mom is abusive to those under her control, destroying whole islands for not paying their quota, which seems just about as bad as what happened in Luffy or Robin's past. Law has been implied once or twice that he has something against either the government or the marines, hell, maybe it's because Akainu hunted him down for helping Luffy and killed Law's crew, that would explain why we haven't seen any of them this whole arc. (Note: I'm not sure but I don't think that the fleet admiral decides who the Seven Warlords of the Sea are, if he did I doubt that Akainu would invite Law in the first place, regardless of how many pirate hearts he sent in).
The arcs after the time skip are partially based on the arcs from the Arlong Park Arc till the time skipIf take a good long look at the most recent arcs they seem to be following a certain pattern: Right before they enter the new sea they are going to (Paradise and New World, respectively) there is an arc about the fishmen (Arlong's crew and the Fishman Island). And in the second arc the Stawhats go to an island to help someone, only to get attacked by a new villain's minions, and then they find an ally in someone who was working for said villain so they can take down a powerful pirate (Whisky Peak and Punk Hazard). Plus, there where whales between those 2 arcs.
Luffy will do a Get a Hold of Yourself, Man! to a Heroic BSOD Jimbe, making a Meaningful Echo of when Jimbe snapped Luffy out of his Heroic BSOD
Namican instinctively use Haki. This would explain all the Armor Piercing Slaps.
Don Krieg wiped out Brook's crew.The Rumbar Pirates were attacked with poisoned weapons. To my knowledge, he's the only one to employ such tactics in the series and It'd be just like Oda to pull something like this. I know, he apparently fled the Grand Line before he got very far in, not to mention the time difference, but weirder things have happened.
Blackbeard is able to steal Devil Fruit by having the fruit regenerateIt's all up there. The fruit regenerates when the user dies and Blackbeard eats the fruit. It's possible that he has some fruit nearby as observed in chapter 676 (Where when Smiley "died" its Devil Fruit regenerated into a nearby apple) How he's able to eat it without exploding or whatever happens when a Devil Fruit user eats another devil fruit is still a mystery though.
Rob Lucci and the rest of CP 9 will have a major role in the futureThe guys top hat in this pages sixth panel and this pages seventh panel looks awfully familiar. Also on the second example, his panel is put between Baron Tamago and Pekoms's and Kid's, heavily implying that he is an important character.
Smoker will become an AdmiralUp until this point Smoker has pretty much been Luffy's rival, constantly following (And has actually beaten him on all of these occasions as well) and is powerful enough to have become a vice-admiral. Who's to say he won't eventually be promoted to Admiral?
Smoker will join Luffy's crewHe's been shown to perfectly willlingly disobey orders and has a strong sense of justice. He's disagreed with a lot of their decisions so it's entirely possible that they'll push him too far and he'll leave/do something against them. Even if he doesn't join the straw hats it's still possible he could leave the Marines.
Those with the will of D are descendents from the Ancient KingdomSo according to Clover, during the void century there was supposedly an ancient kingdom that warred with what would later become the World Government. The Monkey Family, Saul, Roger, Rouge, etc are all descendents from the ancient kingdom. The D can ether stand for the country itself or an important figure from the country. Whitebeard also implies that it's one of these people who will find One Piece and challenge the world, which also fits with their tendency to do outrageous things. Naturally since Roger discovered the "True History" he also learned this was the meaning of the name.
The World Government was founded by pirates.This is the secret of the true history that the WG is so desperate to hide. They're not just usurpers, they're criminals themselves and all their talk of justice is total hypocrisy (more so). If word ever got out, all their authority as justice would come completely crashing down, and they'd be exposed as the dictatorship they are. Admit it, it really does fit poetically and the hypocrisy is completely in line with how they act.
Getting onto Raftel requires......knowledge of the Ancient Language. This is why no pirate, even those with over twenty-year headstarts on our heroes, have been able to access it yet, since all those who understand it are dead. We know Roger, the one person to reach the island, could read it, and being able to read it is precisely why he was the only person to reach it. Obviously, this means Robin will be the one to get the Straw Hats onto the island come the final arc. It also suggests that Blackbeard isn't done recruiting yet, as if he's going to be our Final Boss then he'll need someone who can read the language as well.
Don Krieg will returnAnd he will be a cyborg. There are numerous reasons for me thinking this. The main reason is that with his massive arsenal of weapons and gold (Or Wootz Steel, Technically) being a cyborg would greatly suit him. Even in the Baratie arc he was similar to Franky with the numerous weapons and appearance, somewhat. Also, if my memory serves me correctly, Krieg was originally going to be a cyborg.
Kuma really was a tyrant, thus his nickname "Kuma the tyrant," and actually underwent two personality modificationsThe process of the first personality modification went like this: Kuma was once human, and an extremely vicious pirate, but he was defeated by an enemy pirate (Perhaps one of the Emperors, just like Moria was defeated by Kaidou), and he was going to die. He reflected upon his past, and wished to be reborn as a better man. The revolutionary army found him, but his body was damaged and he became a cyborg, and his wish to be reborn was answered as well. Kuma, being thankful for his second chance, was more than willing to join the revolutionary army: even if it meant being a spy in the marines as a warlord. The Marines, not knowing what had happened and that he wasn't the same man (So to speak) sent him a request for him to join the Seven Warlords.
The Uranos Weapon is actually the Devil-fruitThe Uranos is named after a sky-god and what do we know that's totally negated by the ocean?
The nature of One Piece will mean that Luffy does destroy Fishman IslandOda threw in a red herring when Jinbe talked of importing straw hats just like Luffy's to the Island, but I'm betting it's a double-bluff and Luffy will indeed destroy Fishman Island because to get the One Piece he needs to destroy the Grand Line itself. My guess at the nature of One Piece is that it is their world, and all the oceans of and to achieve it Luffy will need to use the three weapons to destroy the Grand (& possibly Red) Line. Given where Fishman Island is it will be major collateral damage so Luffy will know exactly what he's doing. On the other hand doing that will ensure Sanji's dream of the All-Blue, Brook getting to see Laboon again and maybe Franky sailing his ship around the world so maybe it's worth it. What's more Oda has given us a time-frame in how Madame Sharley's visions can take up to a year to happen. And that just happens to be when the Reverie takes place, the one that the Fishmen plan to use to tell the world they wish to re-integrate with it. How long that year will take in story-time is a different matter and the events afterward don't have to be the end of the story.
In the last battle, all of the Straw Hat's Allies will support themMihawk noted that Luffy has the ability to turn his foes into allies, so I think that during the final battle (with Blackbeard's crew) their allies will show up and help fight off Blackbeard's crew.
The Strawhats are gonna start gaining allies fast!I can see Momonosuke and Kinemon both joining at the end of Punk Hazard, which is two more swordsmen and another DF user, and that hasn't happened since East Blue! If you compare what we know about NW crews, which, admittedly we mostly know through Yonkou, we still see that the Strawhats are seriously lacking in manpower! What we have now, if we include the two samurai, could be the basis for the Strawhat officers, with other pirates, and possibly entire crews being absorbed into their ranks in the near future. Look how many pirates were begging to join the fake Strawhats in Sabondy! Whitebeard had 47 heavy hitters from the NW sworn to him, along with his own crew, which fulled four huge galleons. If Big Mam could match that, and Luffy is going to have to face her in the foreseeable future, he's gonna need allies. Mayhap this is the reason for all the talk of alliances in the recent past, the Supernovas are realising they can't stay afloat long on their own. Oda likes foreshadowing!
Thousand Sunny will get a bounty.
Potential Funimation CastI don't know if one's present on these lists, but the idea is, "Who would Funimation hire as V As for the coming dubs?" Everyone could post here, seeing that I can only think of one.
Luffy/Strawhat Crew will have their bounty/bounties raised after defeating Big MomWorking off the assumption that the Yonko Law wants to take down is Charlotte Lin Lin, the Strawhats haven't had their bounties raised and updated in over two years, with the exception of Luffy, what would make the World Government consider Luffy a bigger threat than he already is, considering at this point they probably think nothing he can do at this point would surprise them more than what he has already done? : Defeating one of the four strongest pirates of the New World.
Usopp will use a Reject Dial in the future

Fishmen are descended from humans who ate fish devil fruitThere used to be fish devil fruits, which enabled the user to breath and move underwater, basically counteracting the whole sea-devil hating you thing. A group of people all ate fish devil fruits, had kids, went and found more fish devil fruits, fed the kids them, and continued as such. Eventually, they started to be born with the fish devil fruit powers, the devil fruit stopped growing, and the users began to be able to eat other devil fruits.
The tenth member of the Strawhat crew...ate the tempo tempo fruit, allowing them to travel through time. This person takes the Strawhats back through time, to the point when Roger first appeared. While searching to meet Gol D. Roger, Luffy discovers he is Roger himself.
The One Piece is actually a personAnd a former member of the Roger pirates, and a future member of the Strawhats.
Elder Nyon is actually Portgas D. Rouge only aged by a Devil Fruit similar to Bonney's
Big Mom's monstrous form is actually a manifest Logia form to hide her true form
Baby 5 will join the Straw Hats.
"Jack" is Doflamingo's Underboss.
Only Smiles can be fed to objects.
Both Bepo the Bear of the heart pirates and Pekoms the lion of the BM pirates are Minkmen, and the Demon guards of Impel Down, known as 'awakened zoans' are minkmen who have eaten their respecting zoan fruits.
There are pirate crews known as the Club Pirates and the Diamond Pirates.
There´s a mention about Zoro´s scar, but not one about his eye.
The next crewmate could be a Maid/Sister
Monet and Vergo will survive the events in Punk Hazard
Whitebeard was poisoned
Kaido has the Cat-Cat Fruit: Model Lion.
Blackbeard has no Haki.
Luffy says he wants to beat all 4 yonko. He will get his chance with Big Mom, and Kaido but...Blackbeard will beat him to the punch with Shanks. And then Luffy will beat Blackbeard. Not a very revolutionary wmg, I just I should say it.
Doflamingo will try and ally with a new YonkoUnwilling to leave the Shichibukai, but scared of what Kaido will do without any SMILES, Doflamingo, while he has time, turns to either Big Mom or Blackbeard, and using the reputation of Kaido's Zoan Army, promises to make one for them in exchange for protection, with using the few SMILES he has around as a show of good faith. So, while either Big Mom or Blackbeard keep Kaido at bay, he has enough time to try and find Caesar before all the SMILES go bye-bye and he's completly screwed, with the added perk of of he does get him back, he has a new patron and protection.
Law has ties to Gecko Moria, be it directly or indirectly.Both have plans to defeat Kaido. Perhaps Law is secretly allied with Moria, or is a son or other relative of one of Moria's deceased crew, which is why he seeks to dethrone the Yonko.
Kaido has eaten a Mythical Zoan Devil Fruit.The model? Behemoth. There is no beast greater than the Behemoth, and given that the first thing people mention about Kaido is his strength, it's not entirely inconceivable that it would come from a Devil Fruit.
Doflamingo's fruit is the reason everyone is so loyal to him.He doesn't just use Razor Floss or People Puppets: his power also allows him to pull people's heartstrings.
Blackbeard's middle name isn't really D.Blackbeard either learned the truth of the Will of D or has a good idea what it means. Knowing this, he called himself Marshall D. Teach to make others think he had it too, thus making people think that on the inside, he's as strong as the likes of Garp, Luffy or Roger. This explains why unlike others who possessed the Will of D, Blackbeard panics when faced with even the possibility of death.
The unrevealed Shichibukai is DrakeThink about it. He used to be a high-ranking Marine and thus knows a lot about the inner workings of the WG, and the fact that he went out of his way to piss Kaido off, coupled with his no-nonsense nature, suggests that he's very powerful and fully aware of what he's doing as opposed to some moron trying to make a name for himself. It also seems like something that he could have done just to talk the WG into giving him a job, because a). he doubtlessly knows tons of shit that could seriously hurt them, and b). the fact that he was willing to anger a dude who was practically Newgate's equal while being fully aware of the implications would seem to be a pretty effective intimidation tactic, as in "hey, if I'm willing to make the dude who very well could have killed Whitebeard on his own mad, what makes you think I won't fuck you up as well?". Besides, Akainu may be an inexcusably awful monster, but he's not an idiot and would much rather have someone like that on his side.
You do not die by eating multiple Devil Fruits.Rather, you can accumulate Devil Fruit powers by simply eating another one. The only ones who knows this are Blackbeard and his crew. He managed to gain the Quake-Quake powers from Whitebeard by keeping a small fruit on his person and showing up to land the finishing blow on him—the fruit then became the Quake-Quake Fruit, Blackbeard ate it underneath the covers, and he gained the powers.
Luffy now had a tatoo on his arm.Probably it's the old 3D2Y or it's something similiar like Ace. ASL maybe? We never see him without his sleeves since timeskip, after all.
The Mera-Mera mk2 will be eaten by...
When a Fruit user die, the nearest fruit is transformed into the fruit that person ateIt explains why Fruits can be found all around the world, they don't grow in a particular place. In the Punk Hazard arc, the Slime ated the Axolotl Fruit and when he "died", transforming into a giant cloud of poisonous gas, we got a close-up of a apple in abasket morphing into a Devil Fruit.
Monet is Yandere towards childrenShe thinks those kidnapped children as her own. She acted good to them (as the children themselves said) not because she's putting up a front, but because she's genuinely love them (in a disturbing way) and wished them to returned those feelings back. She gave them medicine so they get addicted, thus would never leave and always depending on her. Just looked at her reaction when those children were rescued. She thought they were taking her children away.
Blackbeard is responsible for the Firetank Pirates being sucked up into the sky.It's consistent with his powers, and if he's hunting for useful Devil Fruits then there are few that allow more dickish abuse of them than Capone Bege's. Plus, it would mean that Sanjuan Wolf wouldn't have to swim any more!
Sanji will propose to Baby 5, and she'll say yes.Goodness know what'll happen after that (it won't stick, obviously, but apart from that...) but their quirks would combine to potentially hilarious effect.
Roger is Luffy's maternal grandfather.Who's to say he never had any other children? A daughter of his would then go on to meet up with Dragon and end up having a son with him. Just imagine how the tension between Roger and Garp would be even further increased if their children were dating...
Donqixote will eat the Mera Mera fruit after Luffy wins the tournament just to spite Luffy.Also the Mera Mera fruit will be more powerful than Ace's, meaning when a devil fruit user dies, the fruit that comes back is even more powerful than before.
Violet will be the next Strawhat and eat the Mera-Mera No MiI know that she just appeared, but I got to thinking how there isn't a dancer in the crew. They do dance, yes, but there isn't really anyone who has dancing as their thing. Also, if she ate the Mera-Mera No Mi, it would give her dance-based fire attacks. I also think it's a safe bet that Luffy would rather have a crew member who has eaten his brother's fruit than having the fruit just be randomly somewhere and someone accidentally eating it. Buggy still hasn't gotten over that.
One-Legged Soldier will join the Straw Hat Pirates.This is not as insane as it sounds: He apparently has blinding speed, electric powers, and he wields a rifle, a weapon totally unlike any of the other Straw Hats (and it seems to be a hunting rifle, not a sniper rifle, so it doesn't overlap with Usopp). He also has a personality that would meld well with Luffy and the others, a rebellious attitude ALL of the Straw Hats embody in one way or another, and by the end of the arc, he may get a new leg, making him a Peg-Legged Soldier...or Peg-Legged Pirate. And a proper name. Besides, it'd be really cool to have a member of this new Toy race become a main character. In any case, the facts that he gets a name box (for what looks like a random civilian), the box appears an entire chapter after he's introduced, and a brief meeting with Luffy that could have been skipped without affecting this particular scene suggest that One-Legged Soldier will be important to the story later on. Additionally, I'd like to propose a follow-up WMG:
One-Legged Soldier knows the CP9 techniques.Only more advanced, as he can combine them simultaneously. His Jet Walk is Soru (Shave) combined with Geppo (Moonwalk). If he knows other techniques, he can combine those for truly devastating—and New World worthy—effects.
Trafalgar Law carries the Will of D.Seriously, look at him without his hat on. He looks like a younger Dragon or a bit more rugged Ace.
Violet is transgender.Sanji's masculinity has been tortured in each arc since returning from the transvestite kingdom, why stop now? She will eventually be revealed to be male (either one of Ivankov's former victims or just a REALLY good crossdresser, unlike the okamas so far). And it will turn into a Crowning Moment Of Awesome when Sanji decides to help her anyway.
Kaido is really seek out the Smiles so he can eventually make a special Zoan so he can become an Ultimate Life FormIt would be lame if he just wanted an army of Zoan similar to Shiki who just wanted an army of animals to do his bidding, so he has to have an ulterior motive for wanting the Smiles
Lucy will not prevail at the Corrida Colosseum.The four finalists will be Jesus Burgess (confirmed), Lucy, Rebecca, and Cavendish. Lucy will face Cavendish in the first round, blow his cover, and lose either to a technicality or a ring-out by surprise. Cavendish, in turn, will get his butt handed to him by Burgess, who wins the Flame-Flame Fruit. The story then shifts to Luffy and the Straw Hats who find him pursuing Burgess to prevent him from either consuming it himself or giving it to Blackbeard. During this time, Rebecca will assist them because she'll consider Burgess a disgrace to Kyros's legacy.
The Ancient Weapon Pluton is actually the Maxim.A ship that can fly into space, with technologically advanced mechanism that left Ussop baffled? Pretty suspicious already, but that's not all! We know that Gol D. Roger went to Skypea and we know that he can read the poneglyphs. To get the Log Pose pointing to Skypea, it means Roger had to spend time in Alabasta, where the poneglyph about Pluton is. My theorie is that Roger got the Blueprint from Alabasta, then Enel/his mentor? somehow became aware of them while Roger was in Skypea(Maybe through his Mantra/Observation Haki). Then in Water7, Roger gave the blueprint to Tom as payment for making his boat or just for safe keeping. How does that sound?
The reason that Bartholomew Kuma agreed to become a Pacifista was to reliably sneak information to Dragon and the Revolutionaries, allowing them to eventually produce their own super-soldier cyborgs.It's clear that the Pacifista program was HIGHLY top-secret until their reveal at Sabaody, and getting moles into Vegapunk's laboratory to sneak information out would have been extremely risky and nigh-impossible due to how important his work is to the World Government. By volunteering to undergo the process (which was shown to be step-by-step) and as a Shichibukai to begin with, Kuma would naturally have the freedom to come and go as he pleased between operations. This allowed him to pass on direct knowledge of the transformation process to Dragon, allowing him to gain the ability to eventually create his own version of Pacifistas while knowing the weaknesses that plague the World Government's versions. It also has the added possibility of potentially bringing Kuma's personality and consciousness back - if the Revolutionaries have a chance they might be able to override Vegapunk's programming and bring Kuma back at some point.
Makino's kidShanks is the father.
The following characters will fight the Celestial Dragons...Boa Hancock, Dr. Hogback, Merry (Kaya's butler, not the boat), Pierre, Dalton, Donquixote Doflamingo (I think), one of the Lapahns, Admiral Kisaru, and (of all characters) Nezumi. Possibly Monkey D. Dragon as well.
When Kaido and Luffy finally meet for the first time, Kaido will nearly kill him with a focused Haki burst.This is a being whose very mention traumatizes Moriah and cows Doflamingo into surrendering his position as a Warlord of the Sea. Plus, it would be an interesting scale-up: Crocodile was the first to bring Luffy to the brink of death, Lucci was the first to do so by mere brute force, so what if Kaido managed it by sheer force of will?
Kaido uses the Hito-Hito no Mi: Model Satan.What better power for Kaido of the Beasts to have than that of "The Beast" himself?
How Marshall D. Teach is able to take people's Devil Fruits... We know from Ace that when a Devil Fruit user dies, whatever fruit is nearest becomes that person's Devil Fruit. So, now imagine that Whitebeard survived Akainu's attack. He was still alive... until Blackbeard killed him. Therefore, Whitebeard's Devil Fruit would go to the nearest fruit... which would be the Devil Fruit that Blackbeard already ate! Therefore, it doesn't break any establshed rules. Instead of "eating two Devil Fruits and somehow surviving" it is now one Devil Fruit has two powers. Does that make sense?
Big Mom is Oars Jr.'s momHe's big and it's reasonable that so is his mom
The Gomu Gomu no mi used to belong to someone close to ShanksInspired by The Mera-Mera WMG. Before Luffy ate it the Gomu Gomu no mi was eaten by someone close to Shanks. When they died Shanks took the regrown fruit like Luffy is currently trying to do.
Blackbeards original devil fruit was the Fruit Fruit Fruit
There will be fruit...... growing from the Jewel Tree Adam. And a Devil Fruit user will die there. Do the math.
Luffy will turn out to be a LogiaWe've got him mastering Haki and the Gears, the only improvement left is that he's actually a Logia. Aside from elemental control (missing), his body can completely become rubber, and he appears to manifest this at all times. When you compare this to many of the other Paramecia (like Foxy) whose powers are largely temporary, it's quite different. The fact that he can significantly alter his body also confirms this. As for what element, it's a type of earth power. His body can become as soft as clay or hard as vulcanized rubber. His ability to use Haoshoku Haki is sort of a shock wave effect, as it the ability to harden his body with Haki. In other words, he's using Earth powers that look like/overlap with Haki.
Alternately, Luffy will turn out to be a ZoanNot as they're typically understood, but maybe a plant-type Zoan. Maybe something like the Tsuru Tsuru (Vine Vine) no Mi Model: Rubber. The reason he can extend parts of his body is because he has "awakened" his fruit, like Marco and the Impel Down guards.
The secret to possessing several Devil Fruit powers is cannibalism.It'd be only natural that to achieve something as awesome as two DF-powers at once you'd have to commit an utterly heinous act that isn't common among the general public. Maybe taking in another person's essence allows you to use a second Devil Fruit, because technically your body contains two human souls. This would also explain why Bartolomeo, being already a DF user, takes part in the tournament for the Mera Mera no Mi. Being the despicable person that he is, he has most likely already consumed human flesh.
Akainu will be killed by the next owner of Mera Mera no Mi. Because the only thing even more satisfying than having him defeated by Luffy's hand would be having him defeated by the power he considers inferior to his own.
Big Mom will will try to bite someone's head off during a fightWell her name is Charlotte Lin Lin...
Rebecca will join the crew.Think about it; she's got a unique look, a unique weapon (a broadsword as opposed to a katana or shikomizue), and, if she wins the tournament, the Mera Mera no Mi's powers. Plus, I think it's time for a third female on the crew.
Doflamingo is a Celestial Dragon.Heavily implied in the latest chapter, and would answer a lot of things.
Caesar just messed up Doflamingo's plan massively.Why? He called him Joker. In front of an Admiral who was already not impressed with how much he'd messed the Marines around with his fake-out. Crocodile got kicked out of the Warlords for far less, how likely is it that Doflamingo's still going to be in the Marine's good books once they find out that he's still active as the principal crime boss on the planet?
Gecko Moriah will return and use Ace as a zombie.A truly wild guess, I know, but with Moriah last being seen on the wrong end of a cliff-hanger, perhaps his story is not done yet; and Oda is obviously still keeping Ace a relevant part of the story postmortem by having this Dressrosa arc include Luffy going after Ace's old Devil fruit. Now, Moriah is always looking for strong corpses; maybe sometime faaaaaaar down the line in this second half of the manga, Moriah will find the grave-site of Ace in the New World and he'll use Ace's body in order to piss off Luffy- and attract the Straw-Hats attention again, too.
Violet didn't perform Heel-Face Turn.It Probably isn't true but it might just be that after seeing Sanji's mind she decided to change tactics and abuse his love for women to get information out of him the normal way. Fool him with a tearful story and have him tell her everything he needs.
Zoro was originally from Water 7.These Tumblr posts would elaborate.
The reason why the WG are looking for Bonney...is because they want Bonney to return the Gorosei to young again.
Fujitora was behind the giant black hole that was pulling Capone Bege`s ship towards it
Bellamy will be the next crewmemberHe and Luffy are cool again and he's made a complete change from his loudmouthed, petty, sociopathic Jerk Ass days, but he's also afraid of his boss, especially now that he failed him again, and seems very nervous about the task that he was given to remain in his good graces (killing Luffy). Also, he's presumably aware of just how much trouble Doflamingo is in and how big of a clusterfuck the Clown affair has become, which means that he has even less to lose and even more of a reason to leave rather than get caught in the inevitable fallout.
Luffy is the reincarnation of Gol D. RogerIt would explain so much - why Shanks is so very fond of him and gave him the hat, why he's so confident that he will become the Pirate King, all the little similarities between them (including the execution platform bit and his extreme protectiveness towards Ace).
The entire crew will eventually master various forms of Haki.It's been foreshadowed in one case: Sanji used Kenbunshoku Haki in Nami's body, while he's primarily a Busoshoku Haki user, likely hinting that she's got the skill but lacks the training or knowledge of how to implement it. As for the others, it only seems like a logical thing to develop for the rest of the crew if Nami were to gain it.
Garp originally dreamed to be a pirate.Oda's drawing of young Garp◊ depicts him with a treasure chest.
When two people with Conqueror's Haki face off, it's always a Big Deal.Before chapter 716, it's only reliably happened once on-screen: with Shanks and Whitebeard. In both cases, the clash resulted in visible air ripples and other cool shit. Perhaps there are also larger, legitimate ramifications of such battles and their outcomes? Surely in the case of Shanks and Whitebeard fighting, the consequences ended up being pretty dire: Whitebeard appears to have won, and went on to rescue Ace, and we all know how that ended.
There are currents that lead out of the Grand line through the calm beltThis would explain how people like Zeff, Krieg, and Mihawk were able to get out of the Grand line so easily, because they just got on some of these currents and it could also explain why the marines don't just go through the calm belt to get to Raftel there's probably a really strong current there.
There's still a functional Ancient Weapon... and it's controlled by the TenryuubitoThis explain how they can hold such enormous power despite being hated by basically everyone.
Usopp is related to NorlandHe made their supposed relation up to fool the dwarves, but we all know how Usopp's lies have tendency to become the truth. Plus, the dwarves could finally give him an opportunity to control 8000 men!
Bepo is a normal bear that had a human soul implanted by LawWe know Law can switch souls. Perhaps he saved a dying crewmate by switching his soul with a bear's when he couldn't save his body?
There will be a pirate with a 1,000,000,000 Beri bountyChintao seems to be the reigning champion with over 500,000,000. Maybe Kaido had the bounty before he became an Emperor, given his past.
The purpose of Noah?Near the end of Fishman Island arc, in the Poneglyph located near the island, it is mentioned by Joy Boy that the colossal ship Noah's purpose will not be known until it's the right time. If we're going to take the symbolism of the name, then here's my guess... It was stated by Whitebeard that, when the One Piece is discovered, the entire world will be shaken to the core. Assuming this is true, then by the end of the series we'll have a colossal disaster, a colossal battle, or maybe both, but the end's the same: the world will be covered in water as the side effect. Here comes Noah: it will be used by the survivors of the event to, well, save themselves from the disaster. As for who, though, I might have no idea for now.
(Unrelated to the above) Blackbeard Pirates would take Noah as their shipSan Juan Wolf, among them, is a giant among giants, but we can directly see that Noah is about half as big as the Fishman Island itself. For the purpose of convenience, I believe they'll take the ship for themselves (maybe at the later part of the story) just so they would fit SJW in.
Impel Down was originally meant to be the Noah's ArkIt always bugged me how illogical Impel Down is (for example, if you have to have a burning level AND a freezing level, why would you put them right next to each other)? And why making a prison that's so ostentatious waste of space? Think of it — there are whole forests in there and from what we saw, the prisoner cells themselves occupy pretty small fraction of all that space. I think it originally had a very different purpose and it wasn't built by the current civilization. Perhaps Impel Down was the Noah's Ark of the One Piece world, laden with various biotopes to host animals and plants when the water started to cover the world. It was built sturdy to survive the flooding (after all, have you seen anyone in One Piece making large-scale underwater constructions? Impel Down surpasses everything on the Fishman Island) and eventually, when the WG was formed, its secure location made it ideal to be repurposed as a prison.
Blackbeard is two people in oneIt has been discussed for quite some time what makes Blackbeard's "unique" body so unique. Due to how he is actually quite muscular but has a enormous gut, the idea that he has a case of Fetus in fetu or a parasitic twin and the like has been brought up before, but I believe it may be a bit more sinister then that. For example, there has been quite a few times when Blackbeard has subtle changes in personality. There is times where is brave then cowardly, stupid then cunning, polite then sadistic, overconfident then cautious, so on and so forth. It really does seem odd how he ping-pongs between two extremes so much in general personality. My guess is he does indeed have a absorbed twin in his stomach, but it is actually a Fetus Terrible that is somehow still alive, and shares a mind with his brother. This is why his personality fluctuates because it's when one of the two is more in control. And it also the reason why he can have two Devil's Fruits as his brother is still alive within him and has his own soul. And also why Blackbeard did not show him getting the power of the Gura Gura no Mi as it somehow was eaten by his twin and probably would want to hide such a fact.
There will be a Tree of LifeSo far we have seen Adam Tree (almost indestructible and main material of both Oro Jackson and Thousand Sunny), Eve Tree (source of light on Fishman Island) and Tree of Knowledge (Ohara). To complete the Garden of Eden parallel, some kind of Tree of Life is necessary.
Gekko will make a Heel-Face Turn to help the Straw Hats against KaidoMaybe being cast out of the Warlords and left for dead has given him some perspective.
Gekko will wind up being a Big Bad candidate who forces the Straw Hats to ally with KaidoThen again, maybe not.
Garp will run afoul of Sakazuki somehow.Regardless of Garp's reputation as "The Hero", a few problematic details remain.
Luffy will eat the Mera Mera no mi.Something will happen later in the tournament which will lead Luffy to steal the Mera Mera no Mi and escape. He'll be surrounded by Marines, other people in the tournament, and the Donquixote Family, so he'll eat the Mera Mera no Mi to protect it and it turns out, he can use multiple Devil Fruits like Blackbeard.
Brook's hair's strong roots is the reason why he has that scar on his skull and the reason why he has great musical talent.Someone pulled on his hair so hard it actually broke his head and exposed a little part of his brain: that exposure to the air increased his musical ability.
Brook will create a Stable Time Loop by travelling back in time and making Yorki contract the disease he had.
Yorki could hear the Voice of all Things.He was a captain of a crew whose deal was music.
Ryuuma was the last shared ancestor of Brook and Zoro.Just because.
Usopp will finally have his 8000 followers
Souls are created by the biological activity of the brain.Many species of animals have souls too.
Kuina's death is part of the reason why Zoro can't stand Sanji.
X Drake joined KaidoX Drake attacked the island in order to gain the attention of Kaido so he could become on of his allies and gain access to his vast resources but unknown to Kaido he is really working with Law and feeding info back to him as a double agent
The Straw Hat Pirates will soon expand themselves into a fleetThe days of single new crew members joining have pretty much ended. As powerful one-man armies as they could be, challenging the New World, fighting the Emperors, becoming the Pirate King, requires something far more - and Luffy has already started up on it, even if he probably doesn't realize it himself. His power, disposition, Haki, and kindness and manner of helping people, are ripe for making entire nations ally with him and follow under his flag: the Fishman Island is by now almost entirely under him, tearing the place from Big Mom a mere formality at this point; Chinjao has placed the navy of his grandsons under Luffy's command, Bartolomeo will almost certainly swear allegiance, Law has a decently good chance of doing so, and depending how things go, the nation of Dressrosa very well might too. And considering how Luffy feels about the possibility of losing friends, he's likely to become the new Whitebeard of the seas.
Doflamingo is a Defector from DecadenceConsidering the fact he's a World Noble, he probably got bored of the lifestyle and thought "Hey why don't I become a pirate?" and has had fun screwing with people ever since.
Death is a female.And she's totally a Soul King fangirl.
There's a genetic condition that makes hair grow directly from the skull.Brook has it.
Neptune pronouncing Zoro's name as "Zori" is a Take That to 4Kids calling him Zolo.Kinda late, actually.
The marines will put Zoro`s scar on the wrong side of his face when they make his new wanted posterand of course Sanji will make fun of it
Vivi's ancestors left the world nobles after seeing what their fellow nobles were doing
Bonney's powers use time manipulation.
Brownbeard will become a division commander in the Straw hat pirates .He will escape from the marines and from another pirate crew with the centaur guard`s
Donquixote Doflamingo had a childhood full of You Have Failed Me.His Celestial Dragon parents were constantly executing people for anything they perceived as a failure, as we have seen Celestial Dragons do at Sabaody and at Goa, and Doflamingo had to stand and watch all of this happen. Over time, he grew sickened of it and defected from nobility to become the pirate leader he is today. One of his key characteristics that sets him apart from other villains is that he cares greatly for his underlings provided they at least tried to do what he asked them to do, even if they didn't succeed. He wants to be King of the Pirates so that he can create a world where he'll never have to see You Have Failed Me again.
Horsey is Kanjuro.Considering the last whereabouts of Kanjuro is the House of Toys, he has most likely been turned into a toy. Horsey has suddenly been introduced as Violet's steed and has remained completely silent. Considering those who oppose Doflamingo are turned into toys, this means he used to be a human at some point. Horsey's total cooperation with Sanji and Violet suggests he still harbors a grudge.
When he ate the Yomi Yomi no Mi, Brook opened several portals which lead to the afterlife.
Cavendish is Calico Yorki reincarnated.
Garp and Roger are brothers.Or oherwise closly related. This would expain so much, such as why Ace and Luffy look so much like each other, why Luffy looks so much as Roger, and why Gol D Roger trusted Garp, who was his enemy for years, with his sun. Seriously, they even look like each other!
Hack was talking to the revolutionaries on the den den mushi
Burgess will eat the Mera Mera No MiIt'd be too convenient for Luffy to have a logia ally or thwart someone else from eating the fruit, and Blackbeard specifically mentions that "it'll be like having Ace in their crew" which seems like a fairly unsubtle indication of things to come. Plus, it sets up a good match between him and potentially Sanji(a fellow fire using character and martial artist).
The Yonkou are not the biggest threats in the New WorldDespite their reputation as essentially the most powerful/influential characters in the series, we're learning about them fairly quickly. Law quickly establishes that it's either "join an Emperor or rebel against them" to survive in the New World, but considering no one is Pirate King yet there's still islands that haven't been explored and likely characters that may surpass them.
Vivi and her family will again be relevant to the main story before the finale.Consider this: Given the revelation that her family has the blood of the World Nobles, and the fact that sooner or later, said World Nobles and the Gorosei are going to fall, it seems likely that there's going to be a need for a new ruler for the world, or at least a de facto chairperson in the World Government. Vivi or Cobra seem the most logical for this role considering their just policies and reasonable leadership skills. Even if they don't end up taking this role, it seems likely that they will have a hand in shaping the new governmental policy in some fashion.
the 4Kids dubbing was intentional in some of the edits.Now, don't get me wrong, 4Kids edited the One Piece dub in all the wrong places at times... but if you also think about it, they ended up "Accidentally" killing off characters twice. Kuina was essentially given a mob hit to take her out of the picture. Bell-Mere was locked up in the dungeon and could be implied to have starved to death. Who's to say they didn't do this intentionally... to get around their own standards of censoring.
Brook's Devil Fruit is making him become a demon
Dellinger`s legs were originally Monet`s.
The Kage Kage no Mi is the opposite of the Yomi Yomi no Mi.
Brook can "turn off" his senses when he needs to.
Bellemeré is Luffy's mother.I had this idea here. (I know. Shut up.) If it turns out to be true, Nami, Luffy and Dragon will have a lot to talk.
Someone important to the Straw Hats was turned into a toy before the series began.Once the toys are liberated, the memories will come flooding back, and at least one major character will get a major revelation that turns the series on its head.
In the first moments Brook was reborn, he had the mind and memories of a newborn.Then he remembered everything and felt silly.
The guy causing Luffy's epic reaction face in chapter 731......is Sabo.
The reason Blackbeard needed the Yami Yami no Mi is because he is unable to use any type of HakiI always wondered exactly why Blackbeard was so desperate to take that Devil Fruit, even going as far as murder and possibly pissing off the World's Strongest Man, but then it occurred to me; what if, unlike those who simply haven't achieved it, Blackbeard is incapable of it completely. It would certainly explain why such an ambitious person would stay relatively unnoticed as a part of Whitebeard's crew. The Yami Yami no Mi was the only thing he could use to nullify Logia-class invulnerability, and wouldn't have made it far in the New World as a captain without it. If I had to guess why, I'd say that his ability to steal Devil Fruit powers and what caused him to have that ability is what prevents him from learning Haki.
Sabo is adopted by DragonHe'd had an initial D in his name.
New nakamaSince Dressrosa arc mirror Arabasta arc in so many ways (manipulative shichibukai playing hero and seizing the country, Luffy's brother makes an appearance and helping him, strawhats helping allies such as Vivi, Law) by the end of this arc Strawhats would recruit a former female enemy, just like they recruited Robin after Arabasta. Many fill this criteria though...
Hack is a revolutionary member and the true teacher of Fishman KarateSince Koala is mentioned as its substitute teacher, and Hack is shown contacting someone in Den Den Mushi, it seems likely.
The Yomi Yomi no Mi is the Devil's Fruit.Brook's powers are connected to the underworld, and the Devil lives in the underworld(this is an assumption).
Trébol is responsible for the memory-wiping.Thunder Soldier and the Tontattas just put two and two together and guessed that Sugar is responsible for both toy-conversion and memory-wiping. We can take Thunder Soldier to be right about Sugar turning people into toys, as he witnessed it firsthand, but the memory-wiping is indirect, the toys do not feel it happening, and the act seems too disconnected from her power set. Thus, I believe Trébol has a Memory Memory Fruit that allows him to erase and possibly insert memories on a wide scale and that his glop-like appearance is just him being a slob. Trébol is in charge of the Special Powers division of the Doflamingo Pirates, so he must have bizarre, non-combat powers himself, but that he's their leader means he can weaponize the powers he has. I would also bet that Trébol has the ability to insert memories too—together, it would make for an incredibly dangerous Devil Fruit ability even in the hands of someone with no physical ability to fight.
Doflamingo isn't considered a World Noble by the other Nobles anymore...Because he's willing to breathe the same air as his subordinates. It would be perfectly in character for the World Nobles to remove his official standing as a World Noble for something like that.
The entirety of Part Two is just one long Ship Tease.... And by "ship", I mean the Thousand Sunny. First the crew got to Fishman Island. There, Jinbei was offered the chance to join the crew, and he didn't have an issue with it. Plus, Shirahoshi became friends with the Strawhats and promised to get stronger. Then on Punk Hazard, Kin'emon and Momonosuke joined them and Trafalgar Law formed an alliance with them. They came close to the Reverie, where Vivi would have been. And now on Dressrosa there's, among many [[HSQ others]], there's Koala and Sabo! Surume, Rebecca, Baby 5... Oda stated that the crew would end up with ten members, which means there's only one opening left. The entire second half of the series is teasing us with possibilities of who that final nakama will be, until, to everyone's surprise, it turns out to be Gin.
CP 0 will stick around for a while...To assassinate Doflamingo after he is defeated, because he is a pain even for the World Government. The reason they weren't ordered to do so before is because Donquixote Pirates are too damn strong, and even the strongest Cipher Pol would find themselves fighting a war instead of killing Dofla quickly. But once Straw Hats take care of that, CP 0 will be free to go and take Dofla's head.
Doflamingo will go down pretty easily in his inevitable fight with LuffyWhen you think about it so far the second half of the manga's Big Bads have been essentially a litmus test showing how far Luffy has come, he's beaten up pretty easily what was essentially Arlong on steroids, he easily wiped the floor with a logia user thanks to Armaments Haki, and now he's facing a Warlord, Crocodile and Moria were two of the most difficult bad guys he had to defeat and the whole reason he asked his crew for that two years of training was because they were powerless in front of Kuma. Doflamingo will be the culmination of all his hard work. It will prove he's ready for the New World.
The one in Lucy's battle gear is Sabo. Considering the internal dialogue at the end of the newest chapter, I thought this might be a possibility. I don't know if mentioning that character is a spoiler in himself, but I did just to be safe.
Pluton, Posideon and Uranus are actually parts of an ancient crew of pirates.We will Actually hear about more ancient weapons, and the final strawhat crew will be a Generation Xerox of that ancient pirate crew. Thousand Sunny is Pluton. Franky built the ship with Pluton's designs in mind. Luffy is Posideon. He has been hinted at the ability to hear seakings.
Vergo will unexpectedly return (now with the late Monets devil fruit powers) in time to stop Sanji & Co from escaping DressrosaVergos death was not shown, unlike Monet, so it is very possible he survived the explosion (The likes of Pell has survived worse). He will be Sanji's main opponent for the Dressrosa arc (If it isn't one of Big Moms crew mates) and will have eaten the Snow Snow fruit, as a means to keep Monets memory alive (Most likely to be misunderstood by Sanji as Vergo killing her).
Gol D. Roger had the power of the Yami Yami no Mi.Once he had been executed the fruit had been reincarnated into the world, and is why Blackbeard wanted to obtain it so much that he would kill his own crew for it.
Doflamingo won't be the main antagonist of the Dressrosa arc.It's actually Violet/Viola. She is manipulating both sides (Straw Heart Alliance and Donquixote Family) into wiping each other out. Or rather, wiping out Doflamingo, Riku, Toy Soldier, and Rebecca. With King Riku out of the way, Rebecca would be the next in line for the throne; her or her father. However everyone has forgotten that the Toy Soldier is her father - but Viola knows because she's been watching the Dwarf and Toy Soldier plan with her special eyes, as she said. With Riku, her niece, and brother in law out of the picture, Viola would be the next in line for the throne. But there's still Doflamingo. Hence why she ditched Sanji (telling him the Sunny was under attack by fighting fish when it wasn't), shooting the screen with Rebecca on it, and then letting Luffy, Zoro, and Kin into the palace to topple Doflamingo.
The Straw Hat Pirates will eventually kill the Five Elder Stars, only for the entire World Government to swear vengeance againt them.
The next Straw Hat will be an old woman.
Sugar is the real leader of the Toy House.
The Thunder Soldier was able to convince Dressrosa of King Riku's innocencePrior to becoming a toy, the Thunder Soldier (or someone like him) was able to convince the general population of Dressrosa of King Riku's innocence and Doflamingo's manipulation. Doffy couldn't have that. Just killing him wouldn't undo what had been done but giving him to Sugar would. Once he was a toy everyone forgot him, and everything he'd convinced them of. Once Sugar's powers are reversed, however, everyone in Dressrosa will remember the truth.
Characters are going to start dying more often.Monet and Vergo's deaths seemed a bit sudden and unneeded, and they're part of a very small group of characters that die outside of a flashback. Perhaps this is Oda saying that the New World doesn't mess around, and death is a very common thing, and characters both good and bad are going to start dying more often in the future.
Brook sometimes can see the readers.
Brook has Emotional Powers.
Doflamingo has secret weapons.Agents, that got turned into toys by sugar. They only get turned back in case of an emergency and get turned into toys again, immediately after the emergency is handled, so no one can remember and prepare for them.
The World Government already has UranusOf the Ancient Weapons, Poseidon (that is, Shirahoshi) is firmly in Luffy's camp, and Pluton is Lost Forever. If the Government were to attain Uranus, we'd have an excellent even playing field for the final battle.
Reverie will be a Perspective Flip arcWith all the hype Reverie has gotten, it's doubtful it'll take place offscreen, but the Straw Hats have already passed Mariejois and there'd be no reason for them to head back. However, there is a certain honorary Straw Hat who is likely to be there: Vivi, getting a chance to be the main protagonist for an arc.
Monet will join SHPBecause we haven't known who throws that notes to Chopper. I believe major characters aren't dead until confirmed.
Oda TOTALLY had the browser in mind when he created Kinemon.
Sogeking will be replaced with UsolandWhen the crew's bounties get updated, the marines will hear the dwarves call Usopp "Usoland" and will interpret it as if that's his real name. His portrait will be based on some idealized sculpture, so that people at his village will still not recognize him.
Bellamy will join the Barto ClubEventually Bellamy will get the hint that Doflamingo does not care about him and will join Bartolemo`s crew they seem to get along well
Luffy's mother is VegapunkShe was genderswapped by Iva shortly after Luffy's birth and took on a new identity to gain better research materials.
Big Mom will temporarily ally with the Straw HatsAssuming Big Mom is Lola's mom, if Big mom is on the ship, then Nami will figure it out and ask Big Mom for a favor with regard to Donflamingo and/or Kaido. After they team up and kick ass, they can have the fight about Fishman Island.
Sabo will join Luffy's crew as the resident Logia userHe did mention in Chapter 731 that he has to "inherit Ace's will" and we know Doflamingo has been holding on to the Mera Mera no Mi as bait to trap Luffy. So Sabo is going to be the one to eat the fruit, display incredible power with it, and then afterward join Luffy in whatever capacity Luffy will allow.
Ace's will is freedomWhich is, ironically, inherited after Sabo's 'death'. He said to Luffy 'to live without regret and more free than anyone else'. Luffy thought of 'Pirate king is the one with the most freedom'. As for Sabo himself he wants freedom from his noble family and later joined on revolutionary, which fights for freedom against World Government
The reason Sabo didn't come to MF warDragon is either purposefully hide the fact about Ace's execution or stopping him. If both Luffy and Sabo (who might also brought other Revolutionary officer) are involved in the war, then he had no choice but also joined in. He's probably didn't expect Luffy to join the war himself.
Nami will play a role in Doflamingo's defeat.It's been established that Doflamingo's Devil Fruit power involves puppet strings created from clouds...who better to blow away those clouds than someone with weather-control abilities?
Brook's soul can possess bodies of water.That's because he would die only if he was in the water and not if he was the water.
Doflamingo is a logia userConsidering he just got his head cut off by Kyros, it'd make sense that he's a logia user, and thus literally made of strings. Allowing him to survive the decapitation and draw out the fight.
Pekoms ate the mythic zoan fruit of the tarrasque.No, not the D&D tarrasque, the mythical French dragon creature of legend. It has the head of a lion and a turtle shell.
The One Piece, if it even exists, is NOT at Raftel.Two reasons for this. If memory serves Rodger himself never called the one piece by name. He just mentioned his treasure. Also when did he ever say he left it at Raftel. He just said he left it at "that place." Seems to me like people are just assuming he left it at Raftel, when there is no real evidence to support it.
Doflamingo will end up becoming a toy.In a Hoist by His Own Petard moment, Sugar will wake up and run crying to him about how badly she screwed up. She will accidentally touch him and he'll turn into a toy. When that happens, no one will remember who he is anymore.
The time placement of the series.It has been established this series takes place on Earth, but when? I know when: over a thousand years after a global nuclear war nearly wiped out all life on Earth. Nuclear summer brought extreme sea level rises, which explains why there are so many islands and no sign of any true mainland. Think about it: they have wind-powered ships and swords, yet they still have modern-looking firearms, PA systems, and modern fashions. There is also nothing powered by fossil fuels, meaning technology has yet to fully recover. All of the Devil Fruits are actually regular fruits that are irradiated. The ambient radiation may also explain why there are strange-looking characters who I would classify as mutants (along with minor mutations such as Usopp's "Pinocchio nose"), not to mention the weird, unnatural hair colors (Zoro having green hair is NOT dye). Therefore, the only explanation is that the world of One Piece is a post-apocalyptic world.
There will soon be a flashback to Law's backstory with Doflamingo.Calling it right now, we are soon going to learn why Law hates Doffy so much.
Sanji will probably be caught by Big Mom on the next arc.It may be a stretch, but I think Big Mom crew will put all the Thousand Sunny crew on a spot, Sanji will step up and offer himself as tribute to cook delicious food for Big Mom.
The real Doflamingo is yet to be seen.The Doflamingo(es) we've been seeing are just puppets controlled from a distance in some hidden area by the real Donquixote Doflamingo, and he has never shown himself in public ever since eating the String-String Fruit. Instead, he has kept up a flawless act for the past decade, at the very least, fooling everyone into thinking that the puppets are actually him, like with Sasori or Pain in Naruto. And like with those two, Doflamingo would be unbeatable without knowledge of his true nature, as he can keep reassembling puppets or bringing out more if they get destroyed. As he's a World Noble, the real Doflamingo would probably be a small, frail man in one of those astronaut suits that anyone with any degree of strength could take out in one attack. This is also why Doflamingo is so confident sitting in the palace after unleashing the Birdcage: That's just the puppet, and the real him is safe. It is possible that some people close to him know the secret, like Vergo and possibly Law. Law is incapacitated and did not expect Luffy to find Doflamingo directly and confront him, and everyone else keeps totally mum because they know that if Doflamingo's secret is out, it will guarantee the end of him. As for the hidden area, I am guessing Zo. Hanging there, nobody can touch him from Dressrosa, and I suspect the reason Law suggested for the crewmates on the Thousand Sunny to go to Zo is because they'll find the real Doflamingo there. That being said, Doflamingo would have to be taken out by Luffy or Kyros, as it'd be anticlimactic otherwise.
That phenomenon Capone Bege saw when entering the Grand Line was Issho.Remember when Capone's ship was pulled up towards that black thing? That may have been Issho's gravity-based powers at work. At that point, Issho was not yet a Marine Admiral, but probably just some random guy with ridiculous levels of strength. Considering Capone is still at large and has become a member of the Worst Generation, all of whom have committed world-shattering deeds over the time skip, and Capone's Mafia motif, maybe Capone made Issho an offer he couldn't refuse, and Issho now works for Capone. If Capone can have this kind of leverage, he'd have connections that make Doflamingo look like an amateur.
When Bartolomeo meets Sanji, he will refuse to believe it's actually himHe's already pretty much the crew's resident Butt Monkey, what with being the only Straw Hat who didn't have an actual photo as his bounty photo and instead a poor artist's impression. The fact that Sanji isn't really notorious for having done anything other than just beating up some bad guys would also contribute to this.
Kuma pushed his consciousness out of his own body to something else when he was fully convertedI highly doubt that someone that powerful would just be a spy that looses their sense of self.
The "ice" that Brook summons doesn't come from the underworld.It comes from his soul. It's the "ice" that encases all his negative emotions, like the "fire" of rage and the "slime" of despair.
New wanted posters will be issued once Doflamingo is defeated.The total defeat of Doflamingo and the new information obstained regarding his operations will be made public, as is what happened with Crocodile, resulting in the Marines acknowledging updated bounties and possibly photographs. Luffy and Zoro will get new ones, as would Franky. However, the most notable one will be that...
Usopp keeps his nickname and his Birdcage bounty in an updated wanted poster.That is, he will get an updated wanted poster, this time as Usopp rather than Sogeking. His name will remain as Usopp "the God," and his bounty will be listed as 500,000,000 Berries. Luffy will be appalled that his bounty, while increased, did not reach as high as Usopp's. Consequently, pirate crews met in the future will mistake Usopp as the captain as he has the highest bounty, and Usopp will be recognized as a Worst Generation member, though not a Supernova as it has taken him more than a year to get a nine-digit bounty.
Brook isn't just happy, he has to be happy if he doesn't want to lose himself and hurt his friends.Since his soul isn't connected to his body, any negative or positive emotion can change it. And while positive emotions give him strength and musical powers, negative ones weaken him and could cause all sorts of damages to his soul.
No matter what Law says about the death of Corazon DolflamingoIt's going to be incorrect somehow. If Doflamingo really did what Law is claiming, then a lot of his previous statements and actions are not going to make sense. The possibilities of what REALLY happened are endless: He could have faked his death, or be comatose, or even have amnesia. Either way, it's very unlikely that what Law thinks happened and what actually DID happen are going to match up 100 percent.
Kaido will actually be a Nice Guy, at least at first.When the Straw Hats first meet him, they're all going to be shocked that he seems very polite and a gentleman. Then, something will happen, and he'll show the sort of attitude that made him a Yonkou and slaughter Moriah's crew in the first place.
The Yomi Yomi no Mi is self-aware and has magical powers that let it be attractive to chosen people and repulsive to unwanted ones.Brook ate the fruit because the fruit wanted him to. Which means that, yes, the fruit commits suicide if it thinks the person who's going to eat it is worthy.
Brook will become a robot.
Oda put some Moe elements in Brook's design and characterization.I mean, I can't possibly be the only one who wants to hug him and protect him, right?
A person's shadow is part of his/her soul.This is why zombies can be made with them.
As a side-effect of Brook's Devil's Fruit, people who have a strong emotional bond with Brook will become attracted to his skeletal body too.
The ice Brook summons comes from his soul and it's the physical manifestation of a lack of empathy.Which means he can only summon and use it against against enemies.
Kuina is Aokiji's daughter.Knowing One Piece this doesn't look too farfetched. Think of it: both their names are bird-related, so Kuzan might have agreed with Zoro's teacher to fake her death. Then he secretely trained her (he was able to use an ice sword) or somebody else in the Marines trained her to be a great swordswoman. (Momonga?) This could explain why he hasn't killed the Straw Hats yet, because of her link to Zoro. Or maybe Vegapunk brainwashed her into Tashigi.
Kinemon's hair stays up like that because he never washes it.
Brook was going to be a female character.
Kinemon has a secondary power: seeing through disguises and invisibility.
Doflamingo's defeatWell, it is inevitable. What I like to point is, instead to get his dream crushed, Doflamingo's defeat will result in him having his old dream back as a pirate. This is in contrast to most of other villains who had his dream crushed, like Crocodile
Luffy's new abilities?Do you wonder if he can develop some freeze punch? He already has the Red Hawk series (fire) and the Thor series (electric) became canon against Don Chinjao. T Hat would make him a freaking pokémon but would be still pretty interesting
Brook's soul can be caught in a jar made of Kairoseki.And if it happens, he will remain there forever, unconcious, until someone opens the jar.
Corazon was the previous user of the Ope Ope No MiOk my theory is this, from the tiny flashback we know Law was dying and he had previously said Corazon saved his life, so I'm guessing that Crozaon used the Ope Ope power to heal Law and was the one who taught Law his medical expertise. I'm guessing that Corazon was Doffy's voice of reason, eventually he went too far, most likely when he used birdcage, and when Corazon protested, he killed him. This caused Law to take a bite of the newly reformed Ope Ope No Mi and become the new user of the power and swore revenge on Doflamingo.
Sugar is not immune to her own power.And that will be by far her biggest downfall. The Hobby-Hobby Fruit is a Story Breaker Power, as all it requires is one touch from the fingertips to create devastating loss of power of all forms to the victim. This would necessitate a severe drawback. I would predict that if Sugar's fingertips made contact with herself when activated, she will not only turn herself into a toy, but she will undo the curse put on everyone else (as powers nullify when people are turned into toys) but not herself (as a type of poetic justice). Thus, she'll have to live the rest of her life as a toy whose identity no one will remember. If this happens, she will likely get a cover story too.
Laki and Wiper are exesAnd it was a bad breakup. Wiper always seem more bitter and angry towards Laki than anybody else, even though other Shandian's make mistakes, he comes down harder on her. Laki is also one of the few Shandians that actually questions Wiper's more dubious actions. And the weird grudge against Laki's cousin, Aisa, seems oddly personal. If you compare their current interactions to how Laki seemed more interested/fascinated by Wiper in the past, there appears to have been some sort of relationship.
Sanji will be forced to cook for Big Mom.Having been captured by the Big Mom pirates, the next time we see the rest of the Straw Hats they'll be imprisoned and only being kept alive as long as Sanji keeps cooking sweets.
Bobbin has Tourette Syndrome.It is not a unique laugh (though Bobbin may have one of those as well.) In the manga it is not as clear but how he is represented in the anime it seems he has tics (or compulsions). His head movements and repetitious vocalizations are characteristic of tourettes and at the very least are completely removed from the mood and conversation he was having during the short glimpse we had of him. Having tourettes myself his behaviors really seem on par with what I have experienced.
The "Secret Plan" that Law mentioned...... actually went off without a hitch. Law and Luffy had an idea of what they were going to do. Luffy charging at Law with an attack was part of the plan.
Nami is originally from Dressrosa and is somehow related to the Riku familyBellemere found her in a war-torn hellscape, right? Her age when she was picked up by Bellemere would place around the Donquixote invasion and it's not like the Marines are limited in travel the same way everybody else was, Bellemere could've just crossed the Calm Belt back to the East Blue. And...this is the most convincing to me, Nami looks JUST like Scarlett and pretty damn similar to Rebecca, the Cast of Snowflakes isn't as pronounced as before, but that's a pretty strange coincidence.
Bepo was once humanTrafalgar had to switch his soul with a bear in order to save his life
Law will become a YonkouLuffy and Law will defeat Kaido and claim his territory, but Luffy won't want to be tied down with running it, he'd rather be off having adventures. So he gives the territory to Law, effectively making Law the new Yonkou. This also cements the alliance/friendship they have.
Kidd, Hawkins and Apoo are after Big MamAnd it will result in an epic three-way battle between the Strawhats, the Big Mam Pirates and the Supernovas.
