This is a CLOSED page for wild mass guesses from the series One Piece which have been Jossed by the series or Word of God. This page includes theories that were Jossed during the Dressrosa Arc and the Zou Arc, and is for viewing purposes only. If a WMG on one of the open pages is Jossed, please move it to Jossed Theories: Part Three.

Do NOT post newly Jossed theories here. Please add newly Jossed entries to "Jossed Theories, Part Three".

Luffy's reaction upon seeing Mera-Mera fruit.
He will be depressed for a while because it's not the meat that he wantedHe will say he doesn't care about that, because it's really just fruit, not Ace memento, all the same claiming that Ace's will/dream/wish/whatever now live within him, making it a Moment of Awesome
  • Jossed - Luffy doesn't want someone else to have the fruit, going so far as to enter a tournament with the fruit as a prize, so no one else can have it.

Neither Kine'mon NOR Momonosuke will be joining the Straw Hats
  • Think of it this way. Brook said Kine'mon died in the gas. However, Caesar said that the gas paralyzes its victims and then traps them in their weird-stoney-bodycasts. Chopper will find a way to reverse the bodycast bit, but will be unable to reverse the paralysis. Kine'mon will threaten sepukku as usual when he learns he can't walk, but Momonosuke will offer to take him back to Wano, and learn the way of the samurai and Foxfire sword style to continue his father's legacy.
    • Partially Jossed, but not entirely yet: When the gas clears out, people stuck in the shells break out on their own. Kinemon required no help from Chopper.
    • No, it's fully Jossed. He's not paralyzed.
      • No, what I mean by "not entirely yet" is that it's still uncertain whether Kinemon and Momonosuke will join the Straw Hats or not. If they do, it's fully Jossed. If they don't, it's partially Jossed and partially Confirmed.

The blind man is in fact Kizaru.
We've already seen post-timeskip Aokiji (back to Kuzan) and Akainu. Their facial features are quite similar, except the blind man looks fittingly older. The wounds that gave him the scars on his eyes aren't what blinded him; it was the close range to his extremely bright light attacks. As for the massive crushing force, remember what Kizaru said at Saobody? "Speed is weight..."
  • I think he showed up in the Z movie though...? I'm not sure, I'm watching a terribly bootlegged (and unsubbed) version. Although, at the very least, I support this as an AU.
    • No, the blind man is Issho aka Fujitora the new Admiral.

The blind guy will be named some derivative of Zatoichi
Let's face it, they look incredibly similar, use a sword-cane, gamble a lot, and have violent reactions to being cheated. It's pretty much a no-brainer that he's BASED off of Zatoichi; thus, he's probably named after him too.
  • Jossed. The blind man's name is Issho, and his alias is Fujitora. Neither have to do with 'low-ranking blind person Ichi' which is what Zatoichi means (His name is Ichi, his title is Zato-no-Ichi, or Zatoichi for short)

In the Punk Hazard arc we will get an Ankh shoutout
In the form of a person who's just an arm, bonus points if due to some devil fruit he has bird like features.
  • Jossed-there was nobody like this on the island.

Giolla is the reason for the Living Toys in Dressrosa
Pretty noticeable. She in the present is shown to be able to turn Nami, Momonosuke, Chopper, Brook and Sunny into toys. It was mentioned in the recent chapter that the living toys were once human and that one of Doflamingo's subordinate has a Devil Fruit that did it.
  • Doesn`t Giolla`s devil fruit turn people into art not toys though?
    • Yes, Giolla turns people into her own demented form of art, not toys. The manga made it clear that there was a separate - and as of yet, unknown - Devil Fruit user from Giolla that was responsible for turning people into toys.
  • Jossed. It's Sugar.

Luffy wins against Chinjao diplomatically
Whatever Garp did to him will be revealed, and it turns out to be something that can just be talked through, given the chance. Being such a great judge of character and a charming type overall, Luffy manages to get to Chinjao and befriend him, after which he will throw the fight.
  • Jossed. He does fix his problem, after a fashion... but the end of the fight was nothing but diplomatic.
Advertisement:

The matter between Garp and Chinjao was about a girl
Related to the above, there was once a love triangle between the two men and a beautiful woman - Luffy's grandmother. Garp won, naturally, which Chinjao never got over.
  • Jossed. It was all about a treasure, after all.

Bartolomeo is Sabo
"That man" is Ace. He wants to bury the fruit at Ace's grave. This also explains the history between him and Luffy.
  • Jossed. He first learns about Luffy when he was nearly executed by Buggy in Logue Town. Bartolomeo immediately became Luffy's fanboy. He wanted to get the devilfruit to Luffy because of that, plus Sabo comes back later to get the fruit himself.

Bartolomeo was a member of Ace's crew
He might have been one of the weaker members or perhaps just young and became a star rookie after eating his DF it would also explain his interest in Luffy and he may have been the one to visit Ace's grave recently.
  • Jossed. He first learns about Luffy when he was nearly executed by Buggy in Logue Town. Bartolomeo became immediately Luffy's fanboy and then he started his pirate career.

Bartolomeo is a Revolutionary.
"That man" that he wants the Mera Mera no Mi for is Dragon to give to one of his comrades. His "close links with Luffy" are that he's friends with his Dad. Rumours of his cruelty have been widely exaggerated because they've come through Government channels (maybe the 'civilians' he killed were CP agents) and he's so dismissive of the Coliseum crowd because they come from such a corrupt society.
  • Jossed. He is just a pirate who looks up to Luffy(-senpai) since the Logue Town arc.

Bon Kurei was Killed Off for Real
Even though nobody dies in One Piece, odds are Oda won't show him alive again. He was facing Magellan, whom even Luffy can't beat, and the entire guard of Impel Down; and he's done a lot of fighting already. The scenes with the den-den mushi and the words of the "Okama Way" song look like the manga version of a Really Dead Montage.
  • Lalala~ Can't hear you T___T Although, I have to chokingly admit, that a part of her feels that anything except for death would feel like a cop-out, and she is furiously trying to smother that part.
    • Ah, but it was revealed later on that * probably* the Blackbeards beat the crap out of Magellan, so who knows about ol' Mr. 2 now?
      • Then that means that Bon-chan is stuck on an island with no escape (he can't open the gate for himself) trapped with hundreds of marines. Best case scenario is he's disguised as a guard until he gets some (pretty unlikely) help, Or escapes while disguised as a guard.
      • I would love to see some sort of filler episode where Bon Kurei escapes Impel Down with the captured New-Kama disguised as Magellan and Impel Down guards.
  • Jossed in one of the From the Decks of the World manga covers, he's still alive and has apparently become the new queen of New-Kama land.

Doflamingo's Devil Fruit power isn't what we think it as AT ALL.
Doflamingo's power is NOT manipulating people. What we've thought his power is really is King's Haki at its maximum potential. Doflamingo has, most likely do to insane amounts of talent and training, learned not only how to overpower opoonent's wills, but make them do exactly what he wants to. His puppeteer like movement is all an act, and those strings on his fingers are to distract people from what his real Devil Fruit power may be (Something probbably nightmarishly terryfying, I bet). This can also be used to explain his high bounty, as it's unlikely he'd get a 340,000,000 bounty just from being able to control under a dozen people.
  • Firstly, high bounties can come from being Axe-Crazy, which Doflamingo definately is. Secondly, this is One Piece. There are no weak powers. The guy with the power to push things is one of the more dangerous people around.
    • So Doflamingo used King's Haki to slice off Oars Jr.'s leg?
    • I think the original poster means Doflamingo has a Razor Wire fruit still.
  • Jossed. His Devil Fruit is proven to be completely responsible for his body manipulation.
Doflamingo ate the Manipulator Manipulator Fruit.
Doflamingo ate the Manipulator Manipulator Fruit, or the Japanese word equivalent. His power seems to be able to control people and he moves his hands in fashion that one does to control a marionette, and marionette's puppeteer is called the manipulator. Plus he really likes to manipulate people, organizations and the entire age itself. It just seems to fit.
  • Jossed concerning the name, but the powers are right. It's the String-String fruit.
Doflamingo's Devil fruit is the Blood Blood fruit
  • Which is how he can control other people: he's manipulating the blood in their veins to control their movements like puppets, a la bloodbending from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
    • This does not explain how he can run in midair...unless he's controlling his own blood.
    • Jossed. His fruit is the string string fruit and he flies by using his fruit to hang from the cloulds.

Bon Kurei's scenario isn't as it seems... He's going to be forcefully programmed by Vegapunk.
Bartholomew Kuma was voluntarily reprogrammed by the WG as a Pacifista, and as Pacifista's are a Shout-Out to the Terminator series, Bon Kurei will be turned into the WG's version of the T-1000!
  • It could be possible he could be converted to a Pacifista via their turn-regular-people-into-a-tree-sized-man thing, but not the face of a new model as he doesn't have the reputation or fear-inducing appearence like Kuma does.
    • Neither did Robert Patrick. if anything, Bon Clays would be a far more stealthy version after some modifications from Vegapunk; he had two years to create more powerful versions of the Pacifista, who knows what he's capable of doing to Bon Clay? maybe take his power and further it along his shape shifting abilities, maybe be able to change his voice, etc. Vegapunk IS this universes version of Tony Stark, after all.
    • Jossed. Bon Kurei still has all of his free will intact and no apparent machine powers. He's in hiding in Impel Down 5.5, rebuilt and back into secrecy.

One of Blackbeard's crew mates is a disguised Bon Kurei.
Because Bon-chan is too awesome to die.
  • Oh yes. Oh for the love of God please yes. Bon-chan can NOT die T_T
    • If anyone it'd be Avalo Pizarro, because, if you notice, he's the only one of the Level 6 Blackbeard Pirates not mentioned by Iva when he was explaining Level 6.
      • Not likely. Blackbeard recruited all four directly from their cells after killing their cellmates.
      • But what if Bon-Chan killed one of the members and took their image when they got up to where he and Magellan were fighting. Maybe Magellan redirected his attack on Blackberad and in the midst of the battle and Bon-Chan knew his only way of getting out was to kill a member. Total BS I know, but this IS WMG
      • Possible, if we're following the speculation that Blackbeard Pirates vs Straw Hat pirates as an even factor, the Straw Hats either need one more or Blackbeards need one less.
    • Jossed sadly. Bon Kurei is still in Impel Down.

Arlong will become a Warlord of the Sea
The World Goverment will forcibly upgrade him to a fishman Pacifista, then send him to kill Jinbe, giving them control over Fishman Island. If he succeeds, they make him a Warlordin order to have a reason to place Marines on Fishman Island.
  • Maybe, maybe...
  • They already have the Kuma Model Pacifista; would they go to the extra effort of taking months or even years to modify someone completely new, who probably isn't even as strong as Kuma originally was?
    • Jossed: the new warlords were Law, Buggy, and Weevil.

'Black Cat' Kuro is the next Shichibukai
  • 1: It's never been established what happened to him after he was beaten by Luffy
  • 2: He fits with the Animal Motifs of the other Shichibukai
  • 3: His main motivation is to not get chased by the Marines, which could easily be accomplished by becoming a Shichibukai.
  • 4: He's a likely candidate for Magikarp Power due to not yet having a Devil Fruit. Unlike Alvida, he actually possesses some legitimate fighting skills to build off of (having developed his own rudimentary form of Soru without any prior knowledge of Rokushiki) as well as the intellect necessary to make the most of a Devil Fruit Power. With enough practice and/or a complementary Devil Fruit Power he could conceivably evolve into a Fragile Speedster-type fighter.
  • Well, the thing is, Kuro is unlikely to be the next Warlord because he has no drive to be a pirate. Remember, he wanted to escape piracy and be rid of his bounty. The last thing he would probably want is to have to endure the difficulty of becoming one of the world's strongest pirates, be hunted down by Marines, and then have to earn his right to be a Warlord (and then have other pirates coming for his head rather than Marines).
    • jossed: see theory above.

Jewelry Bonney will become the next Warlord of the Sea
She just got captured by the World Government, but I bet she'll be offered the position and will attempt to use it to get vengeance on Blackbeard
  • Why exactly would you hire someone who had her entire crew utterly defeated by him into your elite unit?
    • Moria got his [bottom] kicked by Kaidou before he became a warlord, so being beaten by the best clearly does not disqualify you.
    • Plus Crocodile ended up getting his butt kicked by Whitebeard after becoming a Warlord but didn't lose his title.
    • Jossed-the new warlords are Buggy, Law and Weevil.

Bon Kurei will escape Impel Down with Blackbeard's crew
There's no way he's dead. Someone as noble as that can't just die. And having him stay in Impel Down indefinitely would be too unjust a fate for someone so selfless. But Blackbeard an co. are still there and about to leave, providing a convenient way for anyone left behind to still make it to safety. Bon-chan could either convince them to take him with them or simply take the place of one of the people in Blackbeard's entourage with his DF ability.
  • Bon being alive is also strongly hinted at in the latest chapter, when Luffy himself exclaims to a disinterested Buggy that he could be okay.
    • Alternatively, he'll become the next Ivankov, spending his days merrily partying away with other inmates in Level 5.5.
      • I highly doubt that, cause Mallegan said he'll kill him, as there's no way he'll back down from that, after everything that has happened, unless Bon Kurei escaped. Though there's a possibility that Impel Down will search for how the prisoners where vanishing and reappearing from. So the only way Bon Kurei would survive, if somebody saves him, namely a guy who can disable Devil Fruit powers, and a person who knows Mallegan very close.
      • In the most recent chapter, Magellen was found beaten to near death, his assailant missing. It sounds like Bon Clay (Kurei, whatever) might show back up again. His assailant was the former head-jailer Shilliew "of the Rain"
  • The Blackbeard Pirates showed up at the war site, minus Bon Clay, so...
  • Confirmed. It wasn't elaborated on how he escaped, but in one of the From the Decks of the World manga covers, he's still alive and has apparently become the new queen of New-Kama land.
  • JOSSED. Chapter 666's cover shows that Bon Kurei is the new queen of Newkama Land: Impel Down 5.5.

Gladius is the one who turns Doflamingo's enemies into toys.
That's why his elbows are mechanical; he made himself partially into a toy, either accidentally or on purpose.
  • Jossed: Sugar is the one with the Hobby Fruit that turns people into toys.

The winner of Block D is Meadows.
The named competitors are shown knocked out except for Meadows, Acilia, and Rolling Logan. Logan was last seen trying to eliminate Rebecca, and since we see Rebecca fighting later without Logan after him, it can be assumed he's out. Similarly, Acilia seems to be on Rebecca's side, trying to help her win, making it unlikely (but possible) she would win because she has no desire to. This leaves Meadows, who knocked out the remainder of Block D with a Devil Fruit power.
  • Jossed. Rebecca was the last one left standing, thus winning the block division.

The blind gambler is Kyros.
They have about the same look in them.
  • Seconded, because that would also neatly tie up two loose threads.
    • It's become highly unlikely—with the blind man revealed as Admiral Fujitora, the only way this could work is if he competed in the Colosseum many years ago under the pseudonym of Kyros.
    • Jossed, Kyros is someone completely different.

The final fight will be between Rebecca and Lucy. Lucy will throw the fight.
Luffy will discover more about Rebecca's backstory and decides that she deserves it more than he does. So he will jump out of the ring, Gomu gomu UFO style, and say that Rebecca won.
  • Jossed: "Lucy" grabbed and ate the Mera-Mera no mi, making him the victor.
    • Plus the Lucy who won was actually Sabo.

The Mera-Mera that was shown in the colosseum is a fake
Not to say Doflamingo doesn´t have the real one, but why risk having the real one inthe colosseum where it can get stolen, especially when it´s specifically bait for Luffy?
  • I thought so, too! Buggy faked one, didn't he?
  • Jossed. Lucy/Sabo ate the fruit and started to show off fire powers, showing the fruit was the real thing.

The person who took over as the gladiator Lucy for Luffy isn't Sabo
It's Bentham. It's actually possible if you think about it. He's somebody that Luffy thought was dead, has possible ties to the revolutionary army through Iva, and he could have made himself look like Luffy, explaining why Doflamingo and other in the gladiator arena didn't pick up that Lucy isn't Luffy any more. And although Sabo obviously has more reason to be motivated to get Ace's devil fruit back, Bentham could know how important it was to Luffy and be similarly motivated. Of course there's evidence against this like we saw Bentham in a chapters cover art having taken over for Iva in newkama land, and his fighting style thus far being different, but Oda loves to trick people, and it would explain why we still haven't seen his face after all these weeks.
  • Plus Bentham already ate a devil fruit so eating another would be suicide (with one exception).
    • Jossed. It is.

The way Devil Fruits Leave the Body when they die

All this troper will say: The last thing a person does when they die.

  • No. Jossed.

Zoro and Donquixote Doflamingo are related somehow
This explains why Doflamingo looks like Zoro's gay twin brother.
  • Taking in consideration that both are inspired by the most famous Spanish-speaking characters to ever exist...
    • Or maybe SANJI is somehow related to Doflamingo...
    • Doflamingo appeared to be in his late teens or early twenties at the time of Roger's execution. He could be Zoro's father. Zoro could be so protective over Chopper because he sees himself in Chopper, a person without a father figure. So he wants to fulfill that role.
    • Jossed. Doflamingo's family is quite well documented as of the latest flashback. Zoro's nowhere in it.

The Mera-Mera mk2 will be eaten by...
  • Akainu. Luffy will shove it down his throat at the last minute of their fight giving him a gloriously Karmic Death.
  • Coby
  • None of the Strawhats will eat it, but it will be eaten by an ally which Sabo is.
  • A random child just like when Luffy eat Gomu-gomu fruit which was kept by Shanks.
    • Jossed: Sabo ate it.

Law is related to Gin
  • Jossed: Law's family was shown in a flashback, and they all died. But Gin was nowhere to be seen or mentioned.
    • That would have been impossible even if they survived since the Amberlead toxin would have killed them long ago. Only reason Law's alive is his devil-fruit powers.

Violet will be the next Strawhat and eat the Mera-Mera No Mi
I 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.
  • Jossed, she already has a devil fruit power.
  • You could also consider this pre double-jossed, as with the latest revelation about the condition of their family, it's unlikely any of the royal family would leave Dressrosa after the arc is over. Like Vivi and Alabasta.

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:
  • Jossed, probably. Considering who he turns out to be, there is no way he's ever leaving Dressrosa again, especially just to become a pirate.

Donqixote Doflamingo 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.
  • If this happens, I could see a reason why, and three possibilities regarding the outcome.
    • would eat the fruit right after Luffy had beaten him, as a sort of desperate effort to keep Luffy from gaining the fruit or as a sort of Take That! trying to prove a last point to Luffy that Dreams and Determination don't always win (since one of Doflamingo's things seems to be the idea that dreams are for wussies). Then this would result in one of three possible scenarios:
    • First, Doflamingo already seems to have a Devilfruit power, and people with a power can't consume a second fruit or it kills them. Thus consuming the fruit would be suicide for him (Blackbeard is the exception).
    • Second, Doflamingo eats the fruit...and somehow gains its powers in addition to the ones he already has, a la Blackbeard. This would also reveal how Blackbeard was able to consume a second fruit. Unlikely? Sure, but this is One Piece, and the series has a history of doing what we'd least expect.
    • Third, sort of similar to the second one, is that Doflamingo's previously displayed powers are somehow NOT the result of a Devilfruit, thus he simply eats the fruit and gains Ace's former powers in addition to the Razor Floss powers he's used before.
  • Jossed he ate the Ito Ito No Mi so he can't eat another fruit.

Letter for Luffy
It'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.
  • Very improbable, if you recall just what happened to Sabo in Luffy's flashback. And him being alive would nullify Luffy's whole motivation, which I doubt Oda would do.
    • If you recall, there was very strong hinting in both the manga and anime that he survived, and Dragon and co. saved him.
  • I think it's confirmed in some data book that Sabo is definitely dead.
    • "Sabo" may be dead, but that still leaves multiple other possibilities, like amnesia, or mind control, or like they did with Kuma
  • As of chapter 731, Luffy meets up with someone who is heavily implied to be Sabo and freaks out about how he thought he was dead. So if Robin met Sabo, she didn't know about his connection to Luffy and he didn't tell her, considering she's one of the crew most likely to not forget something like that.
  • Jossed (for the letter) and seems that Robin did know who Sabo was.

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.
  • Jossed. Turns out, HE was rotten one from the start and his family were all good people. He cares for his underlings so much because he has no one left seeing as how he indirectly led to his mother's death and murdered his father and brother.

Doflamingo is a Defector from Decadence
Considering 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.

No one else in the series is going to be revealed to be a D.
Honestly, there's no narrative reason to have any more than the ones that have already been revealed. How special could the Will of D possibly seem to the audience if half the people in the series have it?

  • I thought that about Haki too when those two guys on Big Mom's crew had it. But then I thought, this is the unfathomably stronger part of the most dangerous sea in the One Piece world; it only makes sense that more Ds would show up here, after all it's probably where they are destined to be.
  • Jossed: Because of Trafelagar D. Water Law. Better luck next time.

Koala is an assassin sent by the World Government
And she is leading the Sunny Pirates into a trap that will result in the death of Fisher Tiger.
  • The assassin part is jossed, the other is partly confirmed. She leads them into a trap, but she doesn't know it herself.

Luffy will face off against Doflamingo, but their confrontation will be more philosophical than physical.
The two embody widely different viewpoints on dreams: Luffy seeks to fulfill his dream of finding One Piece and becoming Pirate King, and by sticking with him, his crew members will have their respective dreams fulfilled along the way. By contrast, Doflamingo is a man who doesn't believe in dreams (though he seems to be a little more tolerant of the concept than his former subordinate Bellamy), but rather claims that the New Age of Pirates ought to be one where men focus on what is right in front of them instead of chasing dreams that may very well not exist. The only reason the confrontation will be physical at all is once Luffy learns of Doflamingo's connection to Bellamy, or of the fact that Doflamingo was the owner of the slave-auction house in Saobody Archipelago.
  • Even better, Doflamingo could force Luffy into a situation where attacking him could mean serious trouble (such as Doflamingo holding people hostage with his powers), and the only way Luffy can safely resolve the situation is to get through to Doflamingo at an ideological level.
  • Nope. As of chapter 745 the fists are flying, no Bellamy required.

Big Mom is a grown-up Koala
I was thinking about how we first saw Dadan in a flashback and then she showed up out of nowhere after we came back to the present. If I'm right, that means that Koala not only learned what really happened that day when she was told that there was no sound, but she became a pirate to get revenge on those who killed the one who brought her home. A crazy guess, I know, but it would be awesome if I was right.

Donquixote Doflamingo
Donquixote D. Flamingo.
  • To clarify, something about his speech makes me think of him as a D somewhere even further down the sliding scale of morality from Blackbeard. Also, his habit of smiling and laughing at all times, even in the middle of a vicious war, make me think of a truly warped and depraved D.
    • While Blackbeard was a bastard, he was a bastard that believed wholeheartedly in the power of dreams. Belief in the power of dreams seems to be a characteristic of the Ds. A nihlist like Doflamingo doesn't really fit all that well.
      • Makes sense. Besides, every character that is a D. has had that fact revealed from the first moment their full names were revealed, and that's not the case with Doflamingo.
      • Not with Roger it didn't.
      • Because we didn't know about the will of D then.
Jossed, it's the opposite, he's an ex-Celestial Dragon and he hates the D.'s like no other.

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.
  • Eh, I'd rather know first what enabled Blackbeard to eat a second fruit, or - to be more contextual - to tap into Whitebeard's power. It's been established that eating a second fruit will make you die, and Blackbeard's case is special, but we haven't seen what's "special" about him.
  • Jossed: Sabo did.

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.
  • Jossed. Not only does she join him for real, but she's not even a Heel to begin with. She's the princess of Dressrosa, and was coerced into working with Doflamingo under the threat that if she didn't, her father would be killed.

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.
  • Rebecca and Cavendish are in the same block of fighters (D) so one one of them can make it to the finals. your theory still holds up however as long as Cavendish defeats Rebecca. My guess for the finalists are Jesus, Lucy, Bellamy, and Cavendish.
    • You're right. Somehow, I thought Lucy was in Block D, with Cavendish in C and Rebecca in B for some reason. Everyone in Luffy's group has split off to do his own thing, however, so it'd also require meeting up with his pals again later on. Looking at the lineup, Block B will most likely come down to Bellamy and Bartolomeo though.
    • The finalists are Lucy, Rebecca, Bartolomeo, Burgess, and Diamante.
  • "Lucy" gets the fruit. Jossed.

Burgess will eat the Mera Mera No Mi
It'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).
  • Jossed. Sabo ate it.

Sugar is the real leader of the Toy House.
  • She's wearing a crown and Trebol is in chains. Perhaps she did something to his mind to put herself in control with her memory manipulation. It would be a classic Oda twist to have the little girl be the real nasty instead of the blob man.
  • Jossed. They're both equally nasty, for one thing, and Trebol just has an eccentric fashion sense. If you meant the SMILE factory, it's leader is actually a lesser minion named Kyuin. Trebol and Sugar are just patrolling there due to the invasion.

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.
  • Jossed, everyone memories returned as soon as Sugar knocked out.

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.
  • Um, jossed?
  • A theory that would leave M.Night Shyamalan proud. But yeah, way jossed.

Doflamingo will go down pretty easily in his inevitable fight with Luffy
When 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.
  • Jossed. He's one tough bastard.
    • Just to add to this: Luffy was effectively getting his ass kicked for most of the initial fight while barely being able to hurt Doffy with Gear 2nd Haki imbued hits. It took until chapter 784 when he unleashed Gear 4th that Doffy was on the receiving end of a Kong gun, Rhino Schneider, and Culverin that Luffy gained the upper hand.

Corazon was the previous user of the Ope Ope No Mi
Ok 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.
  • Jossed as of chapter 764. Corazon used the Nagi Nagi no Mi, so it is impossible for him to have eaten the Ope Ope no Mi.

Rocinante will die by eating the ope ope no mi
  • The first part of Law's past had a similarity to Robin's, but the part where he went along with Corazon is rather similar with Chopper. Chopper's called monster and Hiluluk was as silly as Corazon. We know eating two DF would destroy someone. It's Dofla's original plan, and seeing how Hiluluk actually died... My guess is Corazon was in a situation where he can't refuse Doffy's order to eat the fruit. Without any choice, he ate the fruit knowing well it would meant his death, but not before asking Law to prepare another fruit. With his death as a distraction, Ope-ope's transferred to another fruit and Law ate it right away.
  • He's already got a devil fruit power, but as things are, it doesn't look like he'll be able to deliver it to Law. That, and the fact that Law is in no condition to cure himself, means that Rocinante will have to eat it, live just long enough to use the eternal life thing, and then explode.
    • No. Doflamingo will force him to eat it. He doesn't know about Nagi Nagi.
    • Jossed.

This is related to an earlier WMG "Sanji and Doflamingo will fight". Where this one is concerned, for one thing, we don't know anything about Sanji's family or relatives prior to his back-story on the cruise ship when he met Zeff. Doflamingo's about the right age to be Sanji's dad, or at least an uncle or some other type of relative, and (according to the other WMG) the two have certain character dynamics that make Doflamingo a perfect Evil Counterpart to Sanji.
  • Seeing how Doflamingo actually valued his family, jossed. Unless he didn't know Sanji's actually his son or something.
    • Double Jossed, since it was recently revealed that Sanji is part of a DIFFERENT Royal family called the Vinsmokes.
    • He might have rather been his son because that would mean that at least a couple of his relatives were decent

Doflammino is really Corazon
Not exactly sure how this would play out, but everything we have been seeing points to Mingo being a horrible person and Corazon being opposite. However this is One Piece so there is some twist on this coming. My guess is that Mingo was a good person, Corazon was the sadistic evil sociopath..at some point Corazon tricked Law, or the previous user of the Op-Op Fruit, into switching the two's personality then killed Doflamingo(who was in Corazon's body)

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.
  • Wouldn't the others have forgotten all about him, then?
    • Perhaps it only applies to Dressrosa, or perhaps the memory-wiping is a separate process.
  • Jossed

No matter what Law says about the death of Corazon Dolflamingo
It'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.
  • Jossed, Corazon is killed by Doflamingo.

Dragon is Gol D. Roger's brother
This would explain Dragon's reason for leading the Revolutionary Army, because he didn't know about Roger's fatal disease or even if he does, still blames the World Government anyway. If you look at them, they are very similar, with the same skin tone in the anime and their hair looks overwhelmingly similar. Whatever their story is, Dragon and Roger are brothers.
  • That doesn't explain why they have different last names (Monkey and Gol). Maybe they're cousins.
    • Plus, Garp would surely have known if his nemesis Roger was his son.
  • Another possiblity is that Roger is Garp's brother. As for the difference in surnames, they could easily be half-brothers (same mother, different fathers), or one of them could have chosen to use there mother's surname instead of their father's, (as Ace did).
  • Probably jossed from overwhelming evidence. It's been stated many times in canon that Luffy is not related to Ace by blood in any fashion. If they were cousins, it would have been mentioned by now, certainly before Ace's death. Also, Dragon being Roger's brother would make Garp Roger's father, and we've seen that they were clearly around the same age during their fighting days 20 years ago, both appearing as middle aged men. Unless Garp was actually really older than he looked and Roger was really younger than he looked, it's highly unlikely that Roger could be Garp's son, and by extension, Dragon's brother.
    • Very much jossed since Oda has released both the ages of Garp and Roger which shows that Roger is only a year younger than Garp.

Whatever Usopp's "Lying Power" actually is, he got it from his mother.
The both of them have the same "Pinocchio" nose, which hints that Usopp's mother has a similar lying personality. However, she later suppressed this trait when one of her lies came true and caused serious problems and later grew deathly ill from the guilt. It is also a hidden reason for her to tell a young Usopp "not to dream"; she doesn't want her son to live with the pain of this power.
  • Jossed. It's explicitly stated that Usopp started telling lies, specifically about Yasopp returning, to try and cheer his mother up and encourage her to get better. It's very likely that after she died, he continued lying in the same vein as a coping mechanism.

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.
  • Personally I'd like to see Brook become Zoro, purely to see Zoro act like Brook does and have Zoro get pissed at Brook for using his swords the "wrong way".
    • Fair enough. My reasoning is Luffy freaking out with happiness at the fact he's now the "awesome singing afro skeleton," Brook regaining his lost youth through Usopp, Usopp gets to feel real strength for once, Zoro being put in a woman's body and the fights it results in with Nami!Sanji, and Robin gets the only body left.
    • The hilarity of Robin -> Luffy would be Luffy acting smart.
      • Good point, also Luffy being incredibly calm and full of morbid comments.
  • Well he swapped Smoker and Tashigi? as of chapter 663. He had an opportunity to swap the other straw hats, but for whatever reason he hasn't done so. ...Yet, at least.
  • Jossed, he never did, not on Punk Hazard at least.

Bellamy was the kid who gave Rebecca a love letter
  • When did Rebecca ever receive any type of love letter?? Besides, Jossed because Bellamy is clearly older than Rebecca, who's only 16.

What will happen when the Strawhats finally land on an inhabited island
There will be either mass panic or mass celebration.
  • Jossed. They landed on Dressrosa, an inhabited island, but there wasn't any panic or celebration going on because of it.
  • Funnily enough though, there was both a mass panic and a mass celebration when they left Dressrosa, with the Marines panicking and the citizens celebrating. You were really close.

Dragon is Gold Roger, who is Pluton
Probably 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.
  • Pluton was built in Water 7 hundreds of years ago, way before Dr Vegapunk's time. And it has been confirmed to be some sort of a warship.
  • Jossed, Dragon was present at Gold Roger's execution as shown in the special Chapter 0. They're two separate people.

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.
  • I think you just countered your own argument there. Don Krieg fled after not getting very far in. Where was Brook's crew wiped out? The Florian Triangle. A stone's throw away from the Red Line. If they had made it that far, I doubt Don Krieg would have turned around and fled all the way back to the East Blue.
  • Not to mention that Brook's Crew was wiped out some 50 years Before the series happens, Krieg probably wasn't even born then.
  • I'd say we can count this Jossed. Too much evidence against it for it to ever be true.

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.
  • Jossed, he's been shown with his shirt off on Punk Hazard, no tattoos. The 3D2Y was likely just temporary or possibly just a marker.

Monet is yandere towards children
She 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.
  • Jossed. She's passed away now, and there's nothing really to support that she saw the kids as anything but "toys" (she seems to get a genuine kick out of suffering). Furthermore, she personally refers to the children as "the master's precious experiments", states that her "mission" is to protect Caesar and his "experiments", and goes on to mockingly refer to them as her and Caesar's "treasure" with a very obviously insincere smirk on her face. As for her seemingly concerned face on the next page, it's also arguable that her despair comes from knowing that Doflamingo will kill her if she fails her mission- hence the reason her last line of the chapter is reiterating the importance of her mission.

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.
  • You can count this effectively Jossed. The Thunder Soldier, who we now know is actually the legendary gladiator Kyros, is an original inhabitant of Dressrosa who would have no way to have learned the government's signature martial art. Furthermore, we saw a fairly detailed chronicle of his life from 15 years old up until he was transformed into a toy at 34; no mention of Rokushiki at all, and he fights with a longsword even in present day.

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 Moment of Awesome when Sanji decides to help her anyway.
  • Jossed. She was shown in the past clearly depicted as a girl at 10 years old and a young woman at 19. It's doubtful Ivankov would have had any reason to be in Dressrosa and turn the King's son into a girl.

Luffy will turn out to be a Logia
We'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.
  • Jossed. Luffy's Gum Gum Fruit has been confirmed as a Paramecia many times. There are several things that make it not a Logia. He can't generate limitless amounts of rubber nor move it by itself without force like all Logias have shown the ability to do. His body can also be hurt by plain blunt attacks (Lucci, anyone?), which is major evidence against him being Logia; even solid Logias like Aokiji's ice and Crocodile's sand aren't hurt by plain blunt attacks, they don't even feel them. Also, there are other Paramecias that are permanently "on" at all times, like Buggy's Chop Chop fruit (after all, he can't "turn off" his body splitting up when it gets cut, as shown when Mihawk cut him by surprise).

Alternately, Luffy will turn out to be a Zoan
Not 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.
  • Uh, isn't plant and animal are different?
  • Jossed. He hasn't shown the "3 forms" typical of a Zoan, it's been claimed many times he's made literally out of just plain ol' rubber, and there's so far been no Zoan fruits based on plants.

Doflamingo is a logia user
Considering 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.
  • Judging by how Law reacted, I think he's got something to do with what was going on.
    • Law has just as much to do with Doflamingo's decapitation as Helmeppo had to do with the Marineford War: they were both there, but couldn't do crap. And even if Law could have done something, he wouldn't have let Doffy live. Plus, what's so strange about being surprised at a random guy suddenly busting into the room and cutting your arch-enemy's head?
  • Jossed. It's a puppet made of string that he uses. He's still a Paramecia. Though he does have some Logia like qualities, being able to generate limitless amount of string and all, keep in mind that Magellan can do the same with poison and he's also confirmed a Paramecia.

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 that.e 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.
  • HIGHLY unlikely, if not outright Jossed. Kuina is the sensei's daughter, and it's very unlikely that he'd do something like that.

Dragon and Gol D Roger are related...and so is Dragon's wife!
Well, Luffy's mental condition could simply be the result of inbreeding and screwed up genes. That would actually explain a lot...
  • Jossed. Dragon and Roger aren't related at all, it's been confirmed in canon many times that there is no relation between the Monkey's and the Gol's. Also, I doubt Oda would make his main hero inbred. Or include incest as a major plot point. That's just... weird. And not funny weird, but nasty weird.

More People have the Will of D
Gold Roger wasn'evealed as having the Will of until about 150 chapters or so in. This opens the door for any number of other unrevealed people. So let's all just list them.
  • Buggy D. Clown: He's gotta be hanging around for some reason.
  • Edwar D. Newgate: His name ends with a D, the same as "Gold Roger." And he's the closest one to One Piece.
    • Moot point now what with him being dead and all.
  • Fisher D. Tiger: The Men of D have shown to have an impact where ever they go. Fisher's one-man raid on Mariejois and the freeing of all the slaves there including one (maybe two) future Shichibukai counts as an impact to me.
    • It's not stated that Tiger is still alive, so it's pretty improbable at this point.
      • Chapter 623 confirms that he's dead.
  • Jossed. Well, technically Jossed. Yes, at least one person (Traflagar D. Water Law) has been revealed as a D. way after their introduction. But, none of these guys listed are D's. Whitebeard and Tiger died without the trademark smile for one thing, and it would be silly to reveal that they were D's now that their story is done. As for Buggy, he hasn't shown a single trait that could point to him being a D. And "Clown" isn't his last name, it's his pirate epithet.

Luffy is Obfuscating Stupidity and is a secret Government Agent
He's the grandson of the Vice-Admiral Garp. He was trained to be. His gramps is so famous that Luffy's Crew gets pissed because they think it's their end, but they manage to escape. Luffy escaped the Marine several times. Luffy escaped Garp at least two times. Luffy has had it all planned out because he's a SGA to capture his father; Garp KNOWS this and only lets it look like he is trying to capture him. You see, being a total ditz, leader of a pirate crew that consists almost completely out of non-adults? Absolutely NO danger. Son of the boss? Yeah, why not, come and meet him, if you want... maybe you'll even live. He's charismatic enough to play it off and because of the previously stated prerequisites he might even be able to get a meeting with Dragon. Chit-chat a bit, wrap him into conversation, and then lure him into a well-laid trap. Bam! Number 1 criminal out of the way. And no one saw it coming.
  • Ummm... Luffy has made the World Government look like complete idiots on numerous occasions, and was largely responsible for two of their three most important bases being wrecked to total hell. Granted, the WG's actions tend to be well below genius-level, but that would be a seriously sloppy and self-defeating gambit even for them.
  • Jossed. We've seen the Gorosei talk about Luffy in an antagonistic manner even in complete private. Also, Akainu tried to drive a magma fist through his brain. I don't think the Gorosei would authorize that if Luffy was their secret weapon to capture Dragon.
The Alubarna bomb was a dud
Let's face it: Pell surviving an explosion with a twenty-five mile radius is too much, even for Oda. That's why I firmly believe that either A) Nico Robin tampered with the bomb because it would remind her too much of the Buster Call, or B) Crocodile himself made sure that it wouldn't do much damage, because...
  • Er, Jossed? A "dud" is when a bomb fails to go off. We saw the bomb explode in Pell's face. There was nothing dudly about it.

"You're not my type" has some greater significance.
Why would someone as kind and sweet as Shirahoshi essentially sacrifice millions of lives and later, her own by refusing Decken over something as trivial as that? Clearly that phrase has some other meaning behind it, something far more important that we're not privvy to.
  • Or its simply humor since saying someone who has been throwing axes at you because you refuse to marry them and as a result have forced you to live in a tower for ten year is not your type is a tiny bit of an understatement.
  • I'd say Jossed. The Arc is over and no greater significance was ever given to it.

Doflamingo became a cynical Hollywood Atheist after having his dreams cruelly destroyed.
Doflamingo once had a major dream or dreams he wanted to pursue, but something happened along the way that caused him to become an embittered man. He merely hides this fact behind a consistent Slasher Smile.
  • Well, pretty much Jossed. His views on the world aren't really from having a dream crushed. Rather, they're from his being kicked out of Mariejois and being hunted down and tortured by common folk for no less than two years straight as a child. His twisted world views are a product of seeing the worst humanity had to offer, along with his own insanity. Also, his Slasher Smile is definitely genuine.

Sengoku's powers are not from the fruit itself.
Rather, they are specifically the result of a human eating the Hito Hito no Mi; if any other creature had eaten it, they would not have the near-indestructible body or ability to launch explosions that Sengoku has.
  • Well, his DF is specically described as a Daibatsu then Buddha, as they were made out of bronze, gold, what have you. No clue on the palm blasts
  • Jossed. His fruit's powers are specifically the Daibutsu. The only "plain" Hito Hito fruit in the world belongs to Chopper.

Chopper eating the Hito Hito no Mi arrested his normal antler growth, requiring him to always wear the bolt keeping his left antler attached.
It was revealed that Chopper broke his left antler off looking for the mushroom for Dr. Hiriluk. To this day, he's had a bolt fastening his left antler to the remaining stub. The problem is, in normal nature, his antlers would fall off annually anyway and he would grow a new set. The only reason he would require that bolt is if the Human Human Fruit took away the ability for him to lose and grow antlers. This would mean he'd be stuck with the current set of antlers he had when he ate it.
  • Nope. They still grew after the Timeskip, as seen is his Walk Point.

The Mermaid Princess will die at the hands of a World Government assassin sent to have the Merman Kingdom turn on The Strawhats, who will also be the one truely responsible for the destruction Prophecised by Madame Shirley
.This will cause Van Der Decken's heart to break, knowing that despite his threats he truely loved the princess and would have hated himself if he had actually killed her.He will then join the strawhats, with his goal being to discover her killer and take revenge on the world government,(if his crew are mentioned at all, they will ask him to leave for his protection, a'la Franky).At this point the Strawhats are wrongfully despised by the general merman populous and will have to escape along with Decken with the help of Jinbei and Den.This event will be the first step towards Luffy's (and by extension his crews)ultimate destiny ,to fight alongside his father and the revolution in their attempts to overthrow the now irredeemable government.
  • Jossed. None of that happened.

Vergo's sick sister who was mentioned by him was Monet

  • Jossed. Sugar is Monet's sister.

Gear Fourth turns Luffy into a giant
Basically Gear Third extended to the whole of his body.
  • Jossed.

Gear Fourth is shortening Luffy's life span
Because four is death. It's nothing new, Luffy's already shortened his lifespan during Impel Down and Marineford arc. Law himself had shortened his life span in battle against Doflamingo, so it's possible Luffy would do it again. If this pattern continues, he'd probably ended up like Roger near the end of the series.
  • While I can't say that this is Jossed, it doesn't seem likely that Oda would recycle that kind of consequence. For starters, decreasing life span was 2nd Gear's thing, and Luffy already fixed that problem. Not to mention that since thi is the New World, just risking your life won't be enough to get you to your goal. And finally, we have Haki, so I'm pretty sure that Oda's gonna come out with something orginal.
    • Considering Luffy says he's been using this to fight the wild beasts in the island he trained in, probably jossed.

Gear Fourth involves electricity and muscles
The body produces electricity, especially the heart. My guess is that Luffy can control his rubber heart muscles in order to enhance electricity production throughout his body and then strike with it. I believe Gear Fourth in general will be similar to Gear Second in functionality (emphasis on speed, so he won't grow any bigger), but with electrical discharge. The massive spike in energy will also make him physically stronger; I don't think he'll swell up in size a la Nightmare Luffy, but his muscles will get ridiculously ripped (along with spiked up hair, because DBZ homage). A basic move, such as a Gum Gum Pistol, will have power comparable to Elizabello's King Punch or possibly even stronger.
  • Jossed

Vergo appears before Luffy deals a finishing blow to Doflamingo
Just my prediction.Probably Jossed since Vergo is dead
  • We will see it. I just can't see the right hand of the Joker being killed so simply.
  • Jossed.

Trebol's coat is a logia
If Spandam's sword can "eat" a devil fruit and become an elephant, why not Trebol's coat too?
  • It was mentioned that the trick works only with zoan-type fruits. If memory serves, he wasn't shown using his power in flashbacks, so it's possible that Caesar improved Vegapunk ideas in this field as well, though.
    • Jossed in chapter 782. We learn that Trebol's Devil Fruit isn't a Logia at all.

Luffy's last attack has killed Doflamingo
I think the real reason we saw the defeated Doflamingo's eyes shrouded in a shadow rather than the usual One Piece Blank White Eyes is because he's already dead. Truly, Pell surviving a nuke to the face is one thing, but if Doflamingo is still alive after all that punishment, he might as well be declared the Pirate King by default. Of course, Luffy killing a villain carries huge, manga shattering implications for the rest of the series... but this is the New World we're talking about.
  • Jossed, he was captured alive by the marines.

The reason for Doflamingo not using Parasite against Luffy is because of his will

It may seem a bit far-fetched, but what if the reason why Doflamingo never used Parasite against Luffy is because of Parasite not being able to affect those with Conqueror's Haki or Will of D? Luffy has both, and Doflamingo knows it fairly well, so it may be that he can't affect Luffy's will because of it, so that's why he doesn't even try to use parasite against him. It is worth noting that Doflamingo didn't use it against Law either, while he could force Law to fight with Luffy, just like he did with Bellamy. And as we know, Law also carries a Will of D, with his real name being Trafalgar D. Water Law.

  • Parasa-ito seems to be a flashy move not intended for actual battle with a difficult opponent. Fujitora just caught the string (may be anime-only scene), any logia can just disperse, Law probably can teleport away ("parasite" doesn't hinder mental activity or speech)... It seems unlikely that Luffy, resident hypnosis victim, has any special resistance - more probable that Doflamingo just doesn't think this move can be useful against non-fodder.
  • It probably just doesn't work to anyone with sufficiently high Armament Haki. That seems to be the usual type of Haki to resist Fruit powers.
  • Jossed. He finally used it on him during the climax of their battle. Although Luffy managed to break the strings, it was more through the brute force of activating Gear Fourth than will/spirit.

After Doflamingo is defeated, Ussop will kill him by shooting him with a pistol.
As Laser-Guided Karma for his crimes and those of his fellow Dragons.
  • My guess is Doffy will die because of the wounds he received from getting Gamma knifed by Law.
  • Jossed.

Kidd, Hawkins and Apoo are after Big Mam
And it will result in an epic three-way battle between the Strawhats, the Big Mam Pirates and the Supernovas.
  • Jossed, they're after Shanks.

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.
  • Jossed, that didn't happen.

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?
  • It doesn't seem likely, she was nowhere near Dressrosa.
    • Plus, it took a Gear 4th Luffy to do much damage.
  • Jossed. She never returned to Dressrosa to be a factor in the first place.

The reason Sabo didn't come to MF war
Dragon 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.
  • Jossed, Sabo had amnesia the whole time and remembered Ace too late.

Vergo will unexpectedly return (now with the late Monets devil fruit powers) in time to stop Sanji & Co from escaping Dressrosa
Vergos 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).
  • That or he'll be in one of the next cover stories.
  • Jossed for both of those.

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.
  • Jossed. They allowed the Marines to arrest Doflamingo, although Sabo does state they'll be back for the Revolutionaries.

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.
  • That seems really unlikely. Bellemeré found Nami when she was just a baby and Luffy is a year younger than her, meaning Bellemeré would have been pregnant when she adopted the girls. Nojiko would have been old enough to recognize a pregnancy, and it would just be weird that she'd never think to mention that their mother had given birth within a few months of adopting them.
  • I'd say this is Jossed; the evidence against it is too much for it to happen without a major retcon. Also, they were on two completely different islands.

Dellinger`s legs were originally Monet`s.
  • Jossed. That would mean that Law would've had to come in close contact with Dellinger and Monet at the same time, but we know Law only recently met Monet and gave her the harpy legs while on Punk Hazard and he hadn't been in contact with any Donquixote pirates before that for 13 years.

Vivi's ancestors left the world nobles after seeing what their fellow nobles were doing
  • Jossed. They remained in Alabasta after helping form the World Government and never became world nobles in the first place.

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.
  • Baby 5 is already set on her marriage to Sai, Jossed.

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.
  • The real reason is because his executives have reinforced his massive ego and sociopathy when he was young due to his willpower
  • Actually, his fruit is a result of everyone being so loyal to him, being a gift from Trebol.

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).
  • Jossed. Drake is working for Kaidou nowadays, who's Law's target, so he's probably not in an alliance with him. And Kid didn't even know what emperor Law was going after, so we know he's not working with him either.

In the end of Dressrosa, Luffy will take a bronze statue of Kyros with him

I mean, Luffy always wanted a bronze statue, and he said in Colosseum, when he first saw it, that he wants it. So either he by himself will take it, or Rebecca, Riku or Kyros will grant him it as a present for saving their country.

  • Or perhaps both.
  • I support this. He deserved it!
  • Jossed, Luffy boarded a ship leaving the country without the statue.

Kyros and Rebecca will join the Straw Hats.
Because there's no way for them to live together in secrecy without eventually being found.
  • Hmm, it's not too likely. For one thing, Oda would be breaking formula by having two Straw Hats join at a time. Also, they shouldn't have too much to fear about being "found" at this point- even if somebody didn't approve of Kyros and found them, what are they really gonna do about it? If they try to take her back, King Riku will certainly disallow it. Kyros also doesn't want Rebecca ever fighting again, so there's no way he'd let her be a pirate. Lastly, this is just speculative, but... if they both joined, that would make four sword users in the crew. I think Oda's probably going for more variety with whoever the next main character is; I'd put my money on either a Fishman Karate user (coughJimbecough) or a person with a unique Devil Fruit or weapon (like a scythe or nunchaku or something).
  • Indeed, it's almost impossible. King Riku and Viola are likely going to help them live in secrecy; and even if they do get busted, Kyros can always pretend he managed to save Rebecca, and Riku could use that as an excuse to officially pardon him for his crimes and accept him back as a bodyguard.
  • Jossed: The whole country already knew about Kyros and Rebecca, and even the Dwarves being Dwarves, they all just looked the other way for their sake.
  • Plus, the Straw Hats and allies already left without Kyros and Rebecca.

Bounties after Dressrosa
  • Luffy:500,000,000 Berries. (For defeating Doflamingo, and to ensure that he maintains the highest bounty in the SHP if/when Jimbei joins)
    • Confirmed. Luffy's bounty is precisely this number.
  • Zoro:200,000,000 Berries. (Fujitora will witness Zoro's skill and see to it that his bounty reflects his threat level it will also further drive home the fact that Killer is his Evil Counterpart)
    • The WMG undersold Zoro: his bounty was raised to as much as 320,000,000 berries.
  • Sanji:195,000,000 Berries.(He receive this when word gets out about him wreaking havoc on Big Mom's ship)
    • Only 177,000,000 Berries. But as a point of special interest, Sanji's bounty says he's wanted "only alive".
  • Robin:160,000,000 Berries.(The Marines will find out that she is connected with the revolutionaries)
    • Only 133,000,000 Berries.
  • Franky:134,000,000 Berries. (For having Dr.Vegapunk's laser technology)
    • Only 94,000,000 Berries. He does not like this much.
  • Ussop:100,000,000 Berries.(He was Doflamingo's number one target, and the marines will acknowledge him as a threat. Besides, he claimed to have Luffy's bounty at some point, which probably means he will receive Luffy's bounties in rising order. No clue how far up he'll get though. Remember, every lie Ussop tells comes true at some point.)
    • Usopp's bounty has risen as high as 200,000,000 Berries.
  • Brook:66,000,000 Berries. (Will receive this for fighting on Big Mom's ship)
    • More than that - Brook's new bounty is 83,000,000 Berries.
  • Chopper:50,000,000 Berries. (Will receive this when the WG realizes he isn't a pet after he fights on Big Mom's ship)
    • Nope, they have not realized it yet - Chopper's bounty has doubled to 100 Berries.
  • Nami:46,000,000 Berries. (Will receive this for fighting on Big Mom's ship)
    • Alternatively Nami will remain at her current bounty because she doesn't take part in the fight and remains on Sunny to watch Momo
    • Nami is worth as high as 66,000,000 Berries, so the above guess is jossed.
  • Total Bounty: 1,451,000,000 Berries.
    • The WMG was very close - the total bounty was 1,556,000,100 Berries. The more precise numbers fluctuate, either over- or underestimating the bounties of the characters, but in the end it the grand total was a pretty good guess.
    • Slight problem with that. Robin's bounty would be higher than Sanji's, considering how big of a deal the Revolutionary Army is. The fact that Robin would have more dirt against the World Government, not to mention how Sabo is there to confirm the threat of said Revolutionaries, would reflect upon Robin's percieved Force of Nature status, thus necessitating her a bounty rise. Her bounty and Sanji's bounty would probably be reverse of what you listed.
      • Jossed. Sanji's bounty has risen higher than Robin's now.
    • It's also unlikely the crew on the Thousand Sunny will receive a raise, as the marines have no way of knowing what happened on the ship. Besides, no one on Big Mom's side was defeated, as far as we know. Caesar only said they barely got away. Most like, only the members on Dressrosa will receive higher bounties and updated pictures, as they are the ones who changed the most during the timeskip.
      • Jossed. The Thousand Sunny crew was raised along with the rest.
    • OP here, overall I only got Luffy's bounty correct so I moved this to the Jossed section.

Unless the Marines will make sure he's alive to face justice, Doflamingo will die offscreen.
Back in chapter 781, Law completely busted a good chunk of Doflamingo's internal organs. According to Law, not even someone like him could survive that, but Doflamingo did anyway by stitching his destroyed organs together with string. And seeing how the Birdcage disappeared when Doflamingo was knocked out, it's safe to say that the stitches holding his organs together have also vanished. It may not mean that Doflamingo will die, as the Marines may notice that and heal him so he faces justice properly, but it's nonetheless a possibility.
  • Jossed? Confirmed? It's interesting how this WMG is worded; it would seem that the marines indeed treated him (since he has a bandage on his head). Meaning... they made sure he was alive to see justice (as you said) so there's no way to actually know if he would have died or not. So... Jossed? Jossed.

The Strawhats will gain a Tontatta crewmember after the Dressrosa arc
Exactly what it says on the tin. Leo would be great at sail repair! Wicca could extend her service as Zoro's personal navigator! Flapper... has a Cool Hat! Perhaps one of them will find themselves accidentally aboard the Thousand Sunny as it rushes from Dressrosa to rendezvous with the other Strawhat and Heart Pirates on Zo. Perhaps one will ask to accompany the Strawhats out of gratitude or desire for adventure. Perhaps Leo (bless his tiny, oblivious heart) will get a clue, and escape with the Strawhats due to sheer embarrassment.
  • Jossed. They joined as allies.

Bellamy will be the next crewmember
He and Luffy are cool again and he's made a complete change from his loudmouthed, petty, sociopathic Jerkass 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.
  • Possibly jossed. Bellamy states that while he can't believe Doflamingo would betray him, he respects him far too much to actually stand against him. Time will tell, though...
    • Definitely jossed. After Doflamingo's defeat, Bellamy declined joining the Straw Hat Grand Fleet and opted to be an independent pirate who's simply Luffy's friend.

Doflamingo will die at the end of this arc.
Think about it... he is only alive due to sewing his organs together after being gamma knifed. If he is knocked out, the strings will no longer be active and he will die from severe internal bleeding.
  • I find this unlikely. People have survived worse in this series.
    • Yeah, except Doflamingo only survived getting his organs fucked up by the Gamma knife by using his Strings to stitch them back together. Besides, This injury is on top of being Red hawked, hit by 5-8 Gear 2 attacks and getting wrecked by Gear 4, attacks that are likely to be much stronger than Gear 3 since they come at at Gear 2 speed. If the bird cage is deactivated, then the Strings holding Doffy's organs are deactivated, causing him to bleed out from the inside. Sure, people have survived things such as haki imbued light speed kicks, Near fatal poisoning, getting frozen in a series where harmless freezing is averted, recoil from a reject dial, getting decked by magma. But remember that the characters still need their organs to survive. Monet died not from getting cut up, but by getting her heart shanked. Ace getting his insides incinerated after getting impaled had a delayed death. Doffy can survive getting his bones broken, but I doubt he can survive having his organs torn apart. Hell, if you look at the most recent chapter, he is barely alive to the point that only one more attack from Luffy will knock him out, undo the stitching, and kill him quite painfully.
      • As a side note, Luffy is very much beyond pissed at this point, and an angry enough Luffy will straight up KILL those who try to murder those considered his friends (Just ask Baron from Movie 6.)
      • This is unlikely to be the case. Movies are non-canon, and general idea is that Luffy defeats his enemies, shatters their dream (if they had one), but doesn't intentionally go for the kill. Probably only Robin and Law are capable of a premeditated murder on "Luffy side".
      • Personally, if he survives those injuries, I'm gonna say Ass Pull. Even if Movie 6 is non canon, it is still a fairly realistic portrayal of what Luffy would do if he believes someone murdered his True Companions. Hell, even if Luffy doesn't kill Doffy, Law will make sure he dies unless Luffy stops him. I'm just sayin, Doffy would be very lucky if he survives having his organs torn apart after stitching them together.
    • Plotwise, what's the point of him dying? Luffy just need to get rid of him, not necessarily killing him. If he lives, we could see more about his plan about Ope-ope, Marijoa's treasure; or we could have him appeared later on (like Crocodile) maybe in the final war.
      • Even if Luffy won't kill him, Law sure as hell will kill him off. I didn't see a doctor in Doffy's crew that can repair the organ damage.
  • He was captured alive.
  • I'd just consider the arc ended by chapter 800, so jossed.

Dressrosa will secede from the World Government after the Dressrosa arc
Spending a decade with a government-sponsored tyrant has definitely soured at least Viola's feelings toward the government. The revelation of Doflamingo's deeds and frame-up for the Riku clan will likely do the same to the people. They may be grateful for Fujitora's help in protecting the civilians, but whatever feelings for good or ill towards him are going to be tempered by the fact that he's the exception to the rule as far as the Marines go. Following Dressrosa's conclusion the kingdom itself may withdraw from the Government if it's possible to do so, possibly becoming another batch of Luffy's territory like Fishman island.
  • Amazingly, this entire point has been brought up by Fujitora himself, who even went so far as to tell them to form their own government. This theory might end up confirmed.
  • Jossed, given they planned to attend the reverie.

After Luffy beats Doflamingo and gets beaten up himself Law will do the Perennial Youth Operation on Luffy, but since he's near death himself he'll just end up healing him
  • Alternatively, Law will attempt it before Doflamingo is defeated, but Luffy will regain his strength just in time to stop Law from throwing his life away (because a shonen series with an immortal protagonist would be dull).
  • Jossed

Kyros will be crowned king of Dressrosa following the Dressrosa arc's conclusion
King Riku stated in chapter 778 that he would never sit atop the throne again, seeing himself as a failure of a king because he failed to protect his kingdom. The next logical choice in terms of succession is Rebecca, but if she isn't given the crown, Kyros would make the next logical choice.

He strives to defend his kingdom as much as Riku, and is a warrior so he won't fall because of the pacifism that allowed Riku to be manipulated. Plus, his entire arc has been Kyros learning You Are Better Than You Think You Are. What better way to exemplify that then to go from hated street thug to revered king.

  • Wouldn't Viola be next in line for the throne, though?
    • Depending on succession laws in Dressrosa (often the older sibling having a child places that child above the younger sibling in the line of succession), it'd be either her or Rebecca, yes. Though that doesn't mean they wouldn't try to crown Kyros regardless.
    • Viola would probably consider herself disqualified (and might have difficulty finding acceptance) due to her years of collaborating with Doflamingo.
    • Scarlet, and through her Rebecca, may also have been legally disqualified by Scarlet's faking her death since, from that moment on, Viola would have been the legal heir to the throne.
    • According to the latest chapter, Rebecca is next for the throne after King Riku.
  • Jossed; he decides to stay away and distance himself from Dressrosa due to his criminal past; Rebecca throws away her status as princess so they can live together, and the citizens are aware of it but pretend not to know, out of respect.

Barto's crew will mirror Luffy's
He wants to be a man Luffy can rely on and he idolizes Luffy religiously. It makes sense that he'll follow his Senpai's path. So, after the Dressarosa arc, he'll have his own adventures and amass a crew not dissimilar to Luffy's own. Hell, Cavendish will probably be his First Mate, calling it now.
  • Not exactly, they are all SH fanboys.

Violet will develop a crush on Usopp instead of Sanji...
...And hilarity will ensue.
  • Jossed. Neither of them got lucky, hilarity didn't ensue.

Dragon was one of the vice admirals which destroyed Robin's home island
When Dragon made an appearance after the Dressrosa arc, many people were curious about why he was more interested in Robin than his own son. This got me thinking- when was the Revolutionary army founded, exactly? I think that the Ohara incident might have been the catalyst to make Dragon disillusioned with the world government, after having been apart of the marines, eventually making it to Vice Admiral status, one of the five needed to enact a buster call. After learning about Robin's origins, he likely felt guilt for his role in the incident, and is trying to make it up to her.Structurally wise, it also makes sense that Oda would have revealed his identity the same arc we learn Robin's backstory, so we the readers would connect them in our heads.
  • Wrong and impossible. The Ohara incident happened after Gol D. Roger's execution, during which Dragon was already a criminal. Plus, the reason why he only asked about Robin is because he had already heard plenty enough about Luffy from Sabo.

Blackbeard and Doflamingo are secretly working together
Sure, it sounds odd what with BB being a dreamer and Doflamingo being not, but notice how they were paling around during the feast at Mariejoa, and how ecstatic Doflamingo got when Blackbeard came to Marineford. The overall goal of the Villain Team-Up is to usher in the New Age in the vein of the strong survive (Judging from the ID recruitment process, it's not too hard to say Blackbeard is a Darwinist like Doflamingo is), both of which have wanted to do so. Of course, once they do usher in it, it's just a matter of who stabs who in the back first. Also explains why Doflamingo is/was so persistent in his recruitment of Crocodile.
  • Jossed. We got a detailed enough look at both their current operations in the Dressrosa Arc (especially Doflamingo's). They don't seem to be working together.

Sanji can't hit women because as a young child, Doflamingo forced him to kill his own mother, and was so deeply traumatized that attacking a woman is very, very triggering
(oh yeah, also related to the WMG about Sanji fighting Doflamingo) No, really, wouldn't be such an Oda-like twist to reveal that a trait of Sanji's that's usually played for laughs has very dark, very sad origins? Plus, there's already speculation that Sanji's protectiveness towards women period stems from problems in his childhood that simply haven't been shown yet, and that he just doesn't want to talk about, and would explain why he was apparently without any parental figure for a time while a child. And Doflamingo is a crazy [illegitimate child], and would be a rather epic Moral Event Horizon. And in this arc, Oda took another thing of Sanji's that usually played for laughs (his nosebleeds) and played it seriously, which could be foreshadowing that seemingly funny things about him can have serious consequences and reasons for being there.
  • ...if this doesn't turn out to be canon, I'd be very surprised.
  • Comedic quirks have been put through Cerebus Retcon before. Baby 5 came from being regarded as useless by her family and Senor Pink came from his son dying and his wife becoming vegetative so he made her laugh by wearing his son's cloths.
  • Jossed. Doflamingo met Sanji in person at Dressrosa and they had nothing personal to say to each other.

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.
  • Franky did make modifications. The Brachio Tank V and the Kurosai FR-U IV were upgrades. Plus, there may be others that just haven't been touched on yet.
    • No no, those are just additional vehicles like the Mini Merry and Shark Submerge. I'm talking about upgrading the Sunny itself.
  • Jossed

Alternatively, the female Minkman from chapter 804 disguised herself as Nami to trick the Straw Hats
Notice how she's wearing Nami's Fishman Island outfit, and not her current clothes as seen in chapter 795 (And is also carrying a sword, a weapon Nami can't use). Maybe the Mink tribe encountered Sanji and co., and correctly assumed the rest of the crew would arrive, so they had a female Minkman who looks strikingly like Nami wear a recognizable outfit from her. That way they could trick the Straw Hats into believing Nami was somehow transformed, making them investigate the matter further and walk right into a trap.
  • Jossed. The Mink (Wanda) is being pretty straightforward with them, not to mention Nami is alive and well. Maybe she just borrowed some of her clothes?

Sanji is "dead" for "real"...
...But whatever life-halting condition he's in, it's something that he'll ultimately be revived from somehow. Because a Straw Hat isn't going to just die in the middle of a random arc. Or ever for that matter, most likely. My money is on Law being able to cure whatever his issue is. Or...
  • Jossed. It's still vague, but from the way the Straw Hats talked, it seems like he's simply left for somewhere. Or, at the very least, their calmness implies he's unharmed.

Jack is captain Morgan
Who even knows how he could have made it this far on the sea in such a short time? Yet, that jaw...
  • Jossed. Jack is someone different entirely. See here

Oda is trolling us and Sanji (and/or Brook) is actually caught in some sort of comical situation
  • (Not the original WMG poster here.) I think you're 100% on the mark. That Brook and Momonosuke are also missing indicates they're up to something pervy. This is reinforced by Wanda's mention of how some Minks are attracted to humans. There is no way Sanji is dead, or we'd have seen it at the end of the chapter. Rather, Sanji, and probably Brook and Momonosuke, are surrounded by beautiful Mink women. Nami feels strongly about it all, Sanji first and foremost, because Sanji's stopped paying attention to her.
  • Jossed. As of this writing, we still don't know exactly what happened to him; but, both Nami and Brook himself actually assure Luffy that Sanji is in a serious situation.
    • At this point, it's completely Jossed. Sanji is forced into an Arranged Marriage, his last name is revealed to be Vinsmoke (apparently part of a noble family), and he kept Nami, Chopper and Brook out of being captured in order to keep them out of the past that's catching up to him.

Zoro has been gradually going crazy since Mihawk defeated him, and is going to snap fairly soon.
During the Arlong arc, Sanji notes that Zoro became a "high tempered" person since that "shameful defeat"(Guess what he's talking about.). Craziness has also been mentioned in the context of his character a few times. Finally, his 'asura' attack invokes an (often sinister) Eastern deity whose characterization fits him perfectly: quick to anger and thirsting for power, and whose qualities detract from peace of mind according to Buddhism. With Perona's negative ghosts likely hanging around him a great deal, the next time we'll see him he'll likely be mentally in dismal shape.
  • Coby told Zoro, when he was tied up by the marines, that only Luffy could save Zoro and only Zoro could save Luffy. Possible allusion towards both their mental states after this current arc.
  • He has spent the timeskip with Mihawk, training on his home island. aferwards he seems to be rather calm and stable, but he is also a lot more uncaring to bystanders, like slicing that ship with no excuse and a remark that it was "fate". In other words, tough luck, loser. he still cares for his true companions though. Only time will tell where he will go from now on.
  • Jossed. It would seem this WMG was made during the intermission before the Timeskip, and since that's going on six years ago now, he didn't snap "fairly soon" (if at all).

Bepo, the bear of the Heart Pirates, originally had his brain swapped with a human.
Bepo is a peculiar bear that speaks fluent English. Also, his captain, Law, has the ability to move anything within his vicinity when using his Devil Fruit power.
  • Jossed. Turns out this is a natural feature of Bepo's race.

The monkey thing from chapter 804 is Raizou
Notice how Kanjuro remarked that the sounds it made are sounds a ninja commonly makes while walking around. Plus, the female Minkman (Minkwoman?) seems to be wearing Nami's clothes, implying that she was somehow transformed into one of them. While the latter point remains to be seen if it's true or not, if it is, it's more than possible Raizou was too.
  • Jossed. Kinemon himself actually asks the Monkey, who's name is Bariete, if he's seen Raizou. Not to mention the Monkey is a Mink and plans on ratting the Samurais out. His job is to guard the gates of the Mokomo Dukedom

Usopp is the Straw Hat's Buggy
Like Iva said when she found out Buggy was on Gold Roger's ship, 'There's one on every crew'. Buggy is pretty much the weakest crew member of Gold Roger's crew. Roger is seen like Luffy, and both Buggy and Usopp is the weakest person on their crew.
  • While this would make sense, it's sorta ruined when you learn that Buggy was on a ship just because he wanted to be a pirate. He had no real goal. Usopp has many goals, from becoming a great warrior like his father, to becoming the greatest sniper, to finding the Warrior Paradise. Buggy was really more along for the ride.
    • Er - When they reached the Grand Line and did the foot-on-the-barrel oaths, Usopp's was "become a brave warrior of the sea." He wants to do the other things mostly for the purpose of being a great pirate. He certainly has more depth than that (perhaps by dint of being on Luffy's crew; we don't know much about the dynamic on Roger's), but if you were to give a one-sentence summary of his motivation...
  • Usopp is physically the weakest of the Straw Hats, but I'd definitely hesitate to rank him as the least effective combatant. His sharpshooting talent, technological advanced arsenal, and tactical ingenuity make him a good guy to have at your back in a fight. Buggy on the other hand seems to have been just a nobody on Roger's crew.
  • Buggy's love of treasure, willingness to rob his own crew, and possession of the Map that lead into the Grand Line suggest that he's something of a dark reprise on NAMI, of all people.
  • True but if you look at the Strawhats and say "There's an enemy fleet" who's the most likely to have a freak out?
    • Chopper, And Nami, as well as Ussop. The weakling Trio are the ones who freak out because they aren't the main fighters. That's all
  • also, Ussop is no longer afraid of enemies by the look of the Fishman Island Arc. He's scared of environmental things and forces of nature (angry yonkou must count as this) but he quite happily took on Hordy's forces, even when Hordy himself was on hand to back them up, as well as running back into an army to fight them some more. He's got better.
  • I'd count this as Jossed. Usopp has already and is continuing to go down a different path character wise than Buggy.
    • Also Usopp has Observation Haki, making him the 4th Straw Hat to have it

Dragon and Smoker were once True Companions in the same vein as Luffy and Zoro, but had a falling out or grew apart due to personal life choices
The Dragon/Ivy True Companionship has obvious parallels with the Luffy/Bon-Chan True Companionship, so it's possible that more of Dragon's associations will be like Luffy's. Smoker is basically a bigger, more mature version of Zoro; he might have had a deeper connection with Dragon once, judging by their interaction in Logue Town. It will be a heartbreaking way to show friendship being hurt by circumstances or ambition.
  • Probably Jossed. Dragon and Smoker were actually both present at Roger's execution; Smoker was just some kid and Dragon was already an adult and wearing revolutionary garb. Intergenerational Friendship is technically possible but ehhh... that's kind of pushing it.

Oda mixed Raizo up with Kanjoru.
That's why, in the flashback, Kanjuro's silhuette originally had a ponytail. Raizo has a ponytail.
  • Well, I don't know if Oda got them "mixed up" in some way, but the second part of this is Jossed. Raizou doesn't have a ponytail.

The Straw Hats don't fight Jack. Instead, the Marines have already defeated and arrested him.
The Marine fleet he chose to attack may have been small, but it was filled with many of their best: Sengoku, Tsuru, Fujitora, Bastille, and Maynard. I don't think Bastille or Maynard would be much of a match for him, but there's no way he could take on all five of them at once. Jack, in essense, will suffer The Worf Effect, in that we see just how strong and powerful he is, but he is still no match for the Marines' top brass. Bonus points if it's Tsuru who defeats him, as she, too, has been hyped to be incredibly powerful, as not only does her very presence send chills down even skilled pirates' spines (and curb-stomps whole groups of them simultaneously with her Devil Fruit powers), it's repeatedly shown that she's the only person on the side of the World Government Doflamingo genuinely fears. Tsuru's Wash-Wash Fruit is a perfect match-up against Jack, as it would allow Tsuru to wash away Jack's thirst for destruction and calm him down.
  • Jossed. He was not captured and he's on his own ship. He also tried to kill Zunisha but the elephant swatted him (and his fleet)sending everyone to the bottom of the ocean

Zou's unusual Poneglyph has something to do with the fact that it's a living island
No other Poneglyph has been red so far. The only unusual thing about Zou, is that it's not really an island at all. It's probably connected.
  • Jossed. It's red because it's one of four Road Poneglyphs, which tell the location of Raftel when combined. The color has nothing to do with the fact that Zou is a living island.

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.
  • Maybe in the past, but as of chapter 659 he is on Punk Hazard
  • Jossed.

Sanji is from the Samurai nation of Wano.
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.
  • It might also explain why he decided to take the Samurai along. Maybe in part due to respecting him wanting to save his kid at all costs, and in part due to knowing that this is what his upbringing taught him was right.
    • At two points Sanji has specifically stated that he was born in the north blue, so no.
      • While true, we haven't learned anything else about him before he and Zeff met. Maybe his parents are from Wano and moved to North Blue for some reason. Otherwise, there's isn't much of a reason for Sanji to know about Wano itself, let alone that a "topknot" is a typical hairstyle there. Before it's mentioned, yes, Brooke did mention that there's a Samurai nation somewhere. However, he only had brief knowledge of the place due to even the marines not being allowed there. There's also a slight possibility that Wano is in North Blue, making everything fit together somehow. Remember, we never saw any of the other Blues other than East.
      • Nope, Wano is in the New World. Read One Piece - Wanted!, it tells about Ryuuma, who was a samurai from the country of Wano. It is stated to be in the New World. I think Hogback mentions it in the Thriller Bark Arc as well when he talks about Ryuuma's zombie.
  • Jossed, a long time ago actually. Sorry. [[spoilers: Sanji is descended from North-Blue royalty so.]]

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.
  • Jossed. Law recruiting people had nothing to do with his plan to be a Warlord. If you were implying his new crewmates were the ones he took the hearts from, we now know that isn't true since they've finally reappeared in the story (and, furthermore, events in the Dressrosa Arc show that Law wouldn't be the type of guy to do that).
    • Very much so. Laws crew is alive and well (somewhat battered but) when they encounter Luffy in a forest on Zou.

One Piece is the internet
Giving free speech to the world. It meshes well with Luffy's ideal that "the pirate king is the free'est man in the world". We've seen that, information doesn't really travel well in the world of One Piece. In east blue, there was a lot of mystery about what the grand line really was, and as we saw during the dressrosa arc, the world government totally controls the newspaper. It makes sense that the world government would try to keep a lid on it, even going as far as create a void century to hide it.What doesn't make sense though, is why Roger wouldn't release it. One possibility is that One Piece can be destroyed, and thus needs to be protected once it's released to the public. Since Roger was dying, he wasn't the ideal man for protecting the One Piece. Knowing this, he instead went through a lot of trouble to set up the ideal circumstances for somebody to take up the mantle.
  • Jossed; Oda confirmed in an interview that the One Piece is a physical reward.

Momonosuke is the son of the shogun's wife!
Kine'mon was the head samurai of Wano, but had an affair with the shoguns wife. When the shogun found out, he decided to have Kine'mon and Momonosuke killed. So that means the crew must help Momonosuke become the new shogun!
  • This is highly unlikely. For one thing, the original premise for this is Jossed completely, considering Kin'emon isn't even Momo's real father. Now if Momo's real father, Oden, just so happened to have had an affair with the shogun's wife, then this is technically still possible; so, it's not quite Jossed yet, but the odds are against it. For one thing, Oda likely wouldn't get into the whole "romance affair" thing for a source of drama. Also, we know that the shogun did have Oden killed, but for political reasons.
    • As shown in chapters 818 and 819, this is completely jossed. Both of Momo's parents were done in by Kaido and the shogun, and the reason had nothing to do with an affair, but rather the fact that Oden set foot on Raftel and learned the world's true history.

Trebol is an artificial Devil Fruit user
In the latest chapter, it appears that Trebol is not quite all he appears to be. Luffy can't hit him with his Haki even though he's supposedly a Logia, and he himself laughs at the idea of being called a Logia, which is weird to say the least. Then his sticky coat falls off and reveals an emaciated body underneath. I believe that maybe he ate an artificial Logia, which has different rules from a regular Logia. Or...
  • Honestly, it's hard to understand why someone thinks Trebol is logia-type. Author words: "logia fruit makes you a force of nature" (from the same explanation: Whitebeard is paramecia-type because he creates quakes, not becomes one). "Stickiness" is no large-scale natural phenomenon.
  • Jossed, It's a paramecia that he makes to look like a logia

Devil fruits are hereditary
If a guy eats a devil fruit and has a kid. The kid has the devil fruit power. But if the guy dies before having kids, it will just go back into circulation.
  • Isn't it jossed already? As far as we know, only one man can have power of a given fruit at any given moment. Also, having logia families around would be a big deal.

Jean Ango is on Zou.
  • Of the named Corrida Colosseum combatants, only two of them completely vanished after their defeat: Jean Ango and Acilia. Everyone else was at least present in crowd scenes after Usopp restored everyone turned into toys. While Acilia's whereabouts are unaccounted for and I have no explanation, Jean is a bounty hunter and has most likely followed the Thousand Sunny between when he was restored and when the Birdcage went up in order to claim the bounties on Sanji, Brook, Nami, and maybe Chopper. Jean is way out of their league though, and is probably lying bleeding and humiliated somewhere on the Thousand Sunny, on his own ship, or on Zou. What happened during then will be explained in a chapter title page story.
  • Jossed. The Straw Hats have been on Zou for a while chapter-wise,, and there's been no mention of him at all.

The blonde Gorosei is Sanji's father
I'm thinking this could be a valid explanation for why he's only wanted alive. The blond Elder Star, the youngest looking one, appears to be in his 40's-50's; Sanji is only 21, so it's plausible that man could be his father. We don't know Sanji's history before he was on the cruise ship; perhaps the blond Gorosei finally recognized him since he got a real picture on his bounty poster, and now, he only wants his son imprisoned and not killed.
  • Jossed. Sanji's father Judge is the head of a family of assassins, as well as a mysterious army. The reason why Sanji is only wanted alive is suspected by him to be because of his Arranged Marriage.

The reason Nami is in tears, is because Sanji has become an okama again.
To try to fight off a powerful opponent on Zou, he had to use the Newkama Kenpo he learned while training on Momoiro, and has gone back into the okama mindset for a short while.
  • Jossed. He's been kidnapped by the Big Mom Pirates and their allies the Firetank Pirates.

Trafalgar Law has some connection to Whitebeard.
Notice how similar his "smiley" Jolly Roger is to the symbol on the IV tubes Whitebeard had hooked up prior to the current war arc? And now we learn that Law really is a doctor, as his "Surgeon of Death" nickname implied. I'm suspecting that before he set out to form his own crew, he was an apprentice to Whitebeard's doctor.
  • According to Word of God, that shape is actually the traditional shape for Jolly Roger type symbols in North Blue. So all that means is that Whitebeard is also from North Blue originally.
  • Jossed. We know just about everything about Law's life now, and there's nothing that connects him to Whitebeard. Besides, if Law was that close to Whitebeard, he almost certainly would have been on the front lines in the Battle of Marineford.

Buggy's Warlord of the Sea invitation is just a ploy by the World Government to execute one of Roger's true companions.
And thereby gain back some public confidence after Whitebeard's "One Piece exists!" debacle.
  • By proving that they're only capable of getting anything done via underhanded tactics? Sounds like a great way to shoot themselves in the foot. Again.
  • Jossed. He's built a rather large pirate hunting business as a Warlord these past two years. If they were gonna kill him for being a Roger Pirate, they'd have done it already.

The reason why Sanji won't or can't hit a woman will be explained in the Animal Island Arc
Oda said in an SBS that Sanji can't hit a woman for some reason. Since the focus of this arc will be more on Sanji, its possible that we'll be seeing the reason for his inability to hit women in this arc.
  • If by "Animal Island" arc you mean Zou, it's jossed; the reason why he can't hit a woman was never brought up. Besides, Oda stared that it was more due to his upbringing than anything; if he's going to give more details about that, it won't be in the Zou arc, which is almost/pretty much over.

Law gave Luffy multiple hearts
A 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.
  • More hearts don't increase the amount of blood in your body. It's produced by the bone marrow.
  • It would pump the blood faster. But either way, this seems incredibly unlikely.
  • Jossed.

Zunisha, the colossal elephant, is undead
Its eyes look like empty sockets, almost like it has no eyes at all. Some ancient technology from before the Void Century may keep it still functional; its showering twice a day may be an automated process, and a navigation system makes it possibile for it to stay away from islands (else, just its passage would cause disasters). Alternately, the same technology keeps it "barely" alive, enough to still do the aforementioned things.
  • Jossed. It's not only alive, but also sentient, and can die.

Sanji's wanted poster had a typo
  • It is supposed to say Dead or Alive. That'll be the biggest troll Oda pulled though.
  • Jossed

The Kraken will join the crew, and in the end Laboon will have a (friendly?) fight with the Kraken
Because Laboon looks a bit like a Sperm Whale and the Kraken is something like a giant Squid. And they're both massive.
  • Jossed so far, unless the Straw Hat meet him again

Raizo is a fruit user.
That's what Kin'nemon means when he says Raizo is a ninja.
  • Jossed so hard. Kin'nemon really IS a ninja.

Monkey D. Dragon will absolutely crush the Blackbeard Pirates.
There is a reason Dragon is considered "the most wanted man in the world": He is a step above Blackbeard in power as the two of them stand now. Alternatively, Blackbeard might not even bother to show up as the Revolutionary Army's activities do not concern him, leaving just Burgess on the island and Shiliew and Laffitte as the two who come to pick him up, and the three of them do not stand a chance against the top fighters of the Revolutionary Army. They will not be defeated for good though—they'll be forced to make a retreat. What happens afterwards, however, I haven't the slightest clue.
  • Jossed. While it's too early to tell whether it's the other way around or the Revolutionaries were at least able to put up a good fight, Baltigo was destroyed by the Blackbeard Pirates, so Dragon didn't crush them at all.

The Zou Arc will last about 28 chapters
  • Jossed, it lasted only 21 chapters.

Kaido is coming to retrieve Doflamingo personally.
Think about it. Kaido's not an idiot - he HAD to have known that Jack and his men were no match for the forces guarding Doflamingo as he was transported to Impel Down. He also had to have been fully aware that Jack was extremely impulsive and reckless and would likely attack the fleet no matter how many heavy hitters were in the opposition. There's no way that this wasn't deliberate. Kaido knew full well that Jack had absolutely no chance at winning that fight, but he sent him anyways to get an idea of what kind of opposition he would be facing. The most logical conclusion is that Kaido never intended for Jack to be the one to retrieve Doflamingo - he was just the recon and Kaido is going to do it himself.
  • Jossed. He's not doing anything about Doflamingo. All he has to say about him is that it's a shame he's so "weak".
    • One of Kaido's top officials Jack "the Drought" was one who tried to retrieve Doflamingo.

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.
  • Jossed to holy hell.

Bepo was once human
Trafalgar had to switch his soul with a bear in order to save his life
  • Bepo is interested in girl bears. Must have been a pervert.
    • Jossed he's part of the Mink race.

Doflamingo was actually the one who created the artificial devil fruit that Momonosuke ate.
How else would you explain the mysterious connection between the two of them?
  • Well, it can't be jossed until the Pirate Alliance Saga is over, but...the fruit was confirmed as being created by Vegapunk. There's no reason to assume that's not true, especially since Doflamingo has shown no ability for science or anything like that. Also, a huge part of why he was so mad at Law for kidnapping Caesar is that he needed him to make the devil fruits, so it's not likely he can just make them himself. Also, the connection was actually summed up as just being that Momonosuke once snuck up on Doffy in Dressrosa and saw him torturing a man, which traumatized him.
  • Jossed: Vegapunk is the one who made it.

Wanda will join the Straw Hats
After the whole mess with Kaido is resolved, Inuarashi and Nekomamushi may offer to help the Straw Hats and Heart Pirates in any way they can if they ever need it. Since Bepo is already a Heart Pirate, they may ask Wanda to join Luffy's crew so that they have a way of reaching Zou any time they need to, it being a phantom island and all.
  • Jossed. Carrots more likely.

Zoro has been gradually going crazy since Mihawk defeated him, and is going to snap fairly soon.
During the Arlong arc, Sanji notes that Zoro became a "high tempered" person since that "shameful defeat"(Guess what he's talking about.). Craziness has also been mentioned in the context of his character a few times. Finally, his 'asura' attack invokes an (often sinister) Eastern deity whose characterization fits him perfectly: quick to anger and thirsting for power, and whose qualities detract from peace of mind according to Buddhism. With Perona's negative ghosts likely hanging around him a great deal, the next time we'll see him he'll likely be mentally in dismal shape.
  • Coby told Zoro, when he was tied up by the marines, that only Luffy could save Zoro and only Zoro could save Luffy. Possible allusion towards both their mental states after this current arc.
  • He has spent the timeskip with Mihawk, training on his home island. afterwards he seems to be rather calm and stable, but he is also a lot more uncaring to bystanders, like slicing that ship with no excuse and a remark that it was "fate". In other words, tough luck, loser. he still cares for his true companions though. Only time will tell where he will go from now on.
  • Jossed. It would seem this WMG was made during the intermission before the Timeskip, and since that's going on six years ago now, he didn't snap "fairly soon" (if at all).

Awakened Zoan users are animals that ate devil fruits for their own species.
Oda stated that if a Human ate the Hito Hito no Mi/Human Human Fruit, they would become enlightened. Maybe an animal doing the same becomes awakened.
  • This can be jossed now since we recently learned that Awakened Zoans are a form of Devil fruit Awakening for Zoans, We also got a Paramecia Awakening from Doffy in the form of turning everything into strings.

Why the ability of a devil fruit can't be discerned before it's eaten...
Most of the devil fruits are either oddly appropriate or ironic for the person who ate them. Kaku was already a lanky character with a long square nose: he got the giraffe fruit. Luffy, a guy with a very energetic(bouncy) personality and a heck of a lot of endurance: rubber fruit. BLACKbeard, who is shaping out to be one of the if not THE main villian: Darkness fruit. Lucci, a man who was ruthless in stalking his prey: Leopard fruit. Going on the more ironic side, there's Crocodile, named after an animal that lives in water: sand fruit. This works on all of the devil fruit characters, try it yourself.

The theory is this: The reason why the ability of a devil fruit can't be discerned before it's eaten is that it doesn't have any specific ability, just a raw power. The ability that will be given is chosen the moment that someone takes the first bite, based off of the personality of the person who eats it. This would also explain why the fruit doesn't work for anyone else after it's been partially eaten; the fruit "imprints" itself on the first person to take a bite.

  • Actually, a devil fruit's ability can be discerned before it's eaten. Blackbeard stated he killed Thatch and stole his devil fruit specifically because he knew it was the Yami Yami fruit. And I believe Sanji mentioned there was some sort of catalog with various devil fruits listed in them.
    • Not necessarily. He could have been misinformed, but because it was the fruit he wanted so much, it's what he ended up with anyway. Also, could you provide a link about the catalog?
  • Shanks and his crew already knew what the Gomu Gomu no Mi could do before Luffy ate it.
    • Blackbeard was also looking for the the one he ate for decades. That's why he became part of Whitebeard's crew in the first place.

Buggy's Warlord of the Sea invitation is just a ploy by the World Government to execute one of Roger's true companions.
And thereby gain back some public confidence after Whitebeard's "One Piece exists!" debacle.
  • By proving that they're only capable of getting anything done via underhanded tactics? Sounds like a great way to shoot themselves in the foot. Again.
  • Jossed. He's built a rather large pirate hunting business as a Warlord these past two years. If they were gonna kill him for being a Roger Pirate, they'd have done it already.

The new admiral replacement for whoever gets promoted will be... Bogart.
Someone is gonna have to take up that vacant position, and none of the current Vice Admirals seem to be strong enough. The replacement shall be Bogart, the guy who has been with Garp as his right hand man for at least 20 years and was most likely the person fighting Rayleigh while Garp was busy with Roger. His lack of exposure beyond a few appearances here and there with Garp across the series it to make it seem like more of a surprise when he finally becomes important to the story. And for the last piece of evidence, just like all of the current Admirals, Bogart is a case of No Celebrities Were Harmed being based on Humphrey Bogart.
  • Jossed, the replacements are Fujitora (Gravity man) and Ryokugyu (Power unknown)

One Piece is Laboon.
If Roger valued his True Companions the way Luffy does, he could have seen Laboon's story as the the best example of what true friends do for each other: they keep each other company, protect each other from harm, and promise to return if one has to be left behind. The one left behind will trust them to return and will wait for however long it takes for them to get back. Furthermore, he never specified exactly where he left his treasure, only saying he left it in "that place."
  • Uh...one problem...Brook wasn't from Roger's crew. He was a part of the Rumbar Pirates. Crocus was there because that's where he lived before the Roger Pirates came through. Crocus left Laboon for the 3 years that he traveled. Since Brook refers to Roger as being an amateur in his day, it's assumed that Roger conquered the seas for...about 30 years. Maybe the 3 year journey Crocus went on was Roger's last one so Roger could hide the One Piece that was the treasure, if that makes sense.

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.
  • Franky did make modifications. The Brachio Tank V and the Kurosai FR-U IV were upgrades. Plus, there may be others that just haven't been touched on yet.
    • No no, those are just additional vehicles like the Mini Merry and Shark Submerge. I'm talking about upgrading the Sunny itself.
  • Jossed

Luffy will be given an offer to become a warlord.
Which Luffy will deny.
  • As if he would be given the offer in the first place, given the fact he has been a huge thorn in the WG's side. Unless of course, Garp has something to do with it.
    • He's his father's son after all and the WG will never forget that, even if he wasn't causing the WG any problems.

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.
  • Later events make this likely Jossed. That character is now an ally of the Strawhats.

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.
  • Jossed. Law recruiting people had nothing to do with his plan to be a Warlord. If you were implying his new crewmates were the ones he took the hearts from, we now know that isn't true since they've finally reappeared in the story (and, furthermore, events in the Dressrosa Arc show that Law wouldn't be the type of guy to do that).

Dragon is Gold Roger, who is Pluton
Probably 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.
  • Pluton was built in Water 7 hundreds of years ago, way before Dr Vegapunk's time. And it has been confirmed to be some sort of a warship.

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).
  • Jossed. Drake is [[spoiler working for Kaidou nowadays, who's Law's target, so he's probably not in an alliance with him]]. And Kid didn't even know what emperor Law was going after, so we know he's not working with him either.
    • also currently Kid is under the [Sarcam Mode]: tender loving care of the Yonko Kaido .

Law became a member of the revolutionaries over the time skip
We 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 weapon 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).
  • Well, it technically is still possible... but this is probably supremely pre-Jossed at the moment due to evidence. Revolutionaries Sabo and Koala show up in Dressrosa and make no mention of Law in their plans or even seem to know him so far. It's also been heavily implied at this point that Law was only using the "take down Kaido" ploy to get Luffy to join him in defeating Doflamingo, his real goal. Furthermore, Law's hatred for the government is due to them helping the leaders of his Doomed Hometown escape while they allowed neighboring towns to slaughter them under the false pretense that Amber Lead poisoning was contagious- all of which lead to his family's deaths. Lastly, Law has already confirmed that his crew is alive.

"Jack" is Doflamingo's Underboss.
  • In the latest chapter, 692, there is some focus on a "Jack" character during a meeting with the Underworld Brokers. One of them suggests to bear the bad news to some "Jack" character, while one responds that they'd be in deep trouble if they did. My guess is that Jack is either A) Doflamingo's main ally outside of his crew itself, or B) An entirely different Broker who is (POSSIBLY) a rival with Doffy.
    • what is also noticable is that in the panel to the left is another clue that one of the brokers we have been seeing is Rob Lucci,(apart from his long curly hair and top hat) specifically the one who said "it's probably the 'league' inform the whole world, this isn't just a problem for the underworld anymore". if you look closely, the man that he is talking to could very easily be Blueno.
  • Jossed, Jack works for Kaido.

Doflamingo will try and ally with a new Yonko
Unwilling 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 completely screwed, with the added perk of of he does get him back, he has a new patron and protection.
  • Couldn't he just use those same SMILES to keep appeasing Kaido for a while?
    • Jossed he's got a one way ticket to Impel-Down.

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.
  • The real reason is because his executives have reinforced his massive ego and sociopathy when he was young due to his willpower
  • Actually, his fruit is a result of everyone being so loyal to him, being a gift from Trebol.

The unrevealed Shichibukai is Drake
Think 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.
  • He left the government when he was a Rear Admiral likely because he couldn't stand working for them, so it would be out of character to go back and work for the organization he left. So kinda jossed. Plus he's working for Kaido as of right now.
  • Definitely jossed the last Shichibukai Edward Weevil the so called "Whitebeard Jr."

Luffy will turn out to be a Logia
We'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.
  • Jossed. Luffy's Gum Gum Fruit has been confirmed as a Paramecia many times. There are several things that make it not a Logia. He can't generate limitless amounts of rubber nor move it by itself without force like all Logias have shown the ability to do. His body can also be hurt by plain blunt attacks (Lucci, anyone?), which is major evidence against him being Logia; even solid Logias like Aokiji's ice and Crocodile's sand aren't hurt by plain blunt attacks, they don't even feel them. Also, there are other Paramecias that are permanently "on" at all times, like Buggy's Chop Chop fruit (after all, he can't "turn off" his body splitting up when it gets cut, as shown when Mihawk cut him by surprise).

Alternately, Luffy will turn out to be a Zoan
Not 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.
  • Uh, isn't plant and animal are different?

Bepo is a normal bear that had a human soul implanted by Law
We 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?
  • Probably Jossed since we found out Bepo is a Minkman.

Dellinger`s legs were originally Monet`s.
  • Jossed. That would mean that Law would've had to come in close contact with Dellinger and Monet at the same time, but we know Law only recently met Monet and gave her the harpy legs while on Punk Hazard and he hadn't been in contact with any Donquixote pirates before that for 13 years.

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.
  • That seems really unlikely. Bellemeré found Nami when she was just a baby and Luffy is a year younger than her, meaning Bellemeré would have been pregnant when she adopted the girls. Nojiko would have been old enough to recognize a pregnancy, and it would just be weird that she'd never think to mention that their mother had given birth within a few months of adopting them.
  • I'd say this is Jossed; the evidence against it is too much for it to make sense without a major retcon. Also, they were on two completely different islands.

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.
  • Jossed

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.
  • Seems quite unlikely by now, since we still haven't seen them.

Bellamy will join the Barto Club
Eventually Bellamy will get the hint that Doflamingo does not care about him and will join Bartolemo`s crew they seem to get along well

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?
  • It doesn't seem likely, she was nowhere near Dressrosa.
    • Plus, it took a Gear 4th Luffy to do much damage.
  • Jossed

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.
  • Jossed to holy hell.

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 that.e 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.
  • HIGHLY unlikely, if not outright Jossed. Kuina is the sensei's daughter, and it's very unlikely that he'd do something like that.

Doflamingo's defeat
Well, 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
  • Jossed

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.
  • Jossed for now

Bepo was once human
Trafalgar had to switch his soul with a bear in order to save his life
  • Bepo is interested in girl bears. Must have been a pervert.
  • Jossed. He's a Mink.

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.
  • Jossed. He ate the Kame Kame no Mi (Turtle-Turtle Fruit), which is standard. The fruit combines with him being a lion does make him resemble a tarasque, though.

Vivi is Pluton
Like 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.
  • Jossed. Pluton is already confirmed to be a warship.

Kuina's death is part of the reason why Zoro can't stand Sanji.
  • WTF? Impossible, Sanji never met Kuina, let alone had a role in her death.

Doflamingo was actually the one who created the artificial devil fruit that Momonosuke ate.
How else would you explain the mysterious connection between the two of them?
  • Well, it can't be jossed until the Pirate Alliance Saga is over, but...the fruit was confirmed as being created by Vegapunk. There's no reason to assume that's not true, especially since Doflamingo has shown no ability for science or anything like that. Also, a huge part of why he was so mad at Law for kidnapping Caesar is that he needed him to make the devil fruits, so it's not likely he can just make them himself. Also, the connection was actually summed up as just being that Momonosuke once snuck up on Doffy in Dressrosa and saw him torturing a man, which traumatized him.
  • Jossed.

Monet conspired with Law
Law was the one who forced Monet to write a letter to Chopper and to toss it while no one was watching. He asked her doing that during their little chat, which he started with a phrase "I need your ability". Law most likely blackmailed her with her heart, which was in his possession. Even though Monet didn't want to help him, she was forced to do that, because if she wouldn't, he could easily crush her heart any time he wanted.
  • Doubt it. We have seen how much Monet treasures her life. Also, that would mean Law already knew he will get caught.
    • Her being killed meant failing the mission which was given to her by Joker, and it was simply unacceptable. If she was killed by Law, it would have left both base and Caesar unprotected and being in danger of being destroyed by Law and anyone else (Straw Hats in that certain day). And while Law didn't know that Vergo arrived, he could predict that something would go wrong, he is constantly portrayed as Chessmaster through this saga, who always plans one step forward or even two. Besides if it was not Law telling Monet to do this, every other way it doesn't make sense either, because Law couldn't do it by himself without being prepared, and even with being prepared, having everyone watching him and him being chained would have stopped him from doing it by himself. Not only that, but the manga panel implied that it was Monet, and Monet herself was undoubtedly loyal to Joker and couldn't assist Straw Hats by her own will, even if she wanted to help them or children. Plus I just don't see what could be the request of Law, if not that. What another ability could Monet lend to him?
  • Jossed

Theory about how Luffy's 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.
  • The story is currently taking place on the wastelands of Punk Hazard inhabited by mythological creatures and a shady organization (which dosen't seem to be connected to the WG) of strange looking man in hazmat suits and their mysterious leader "M". It probably would have been another fine day of conspiracy and morally questionable experiments for the, had they not made the mistake of choosing the Strawhats as their newest guinea pigs (how the hell did they not recognize them anyway?). The next logical step is of course that the Strawhats unite and reduce their face, their base and probably half of the island into finely ground dust. However, Smoker's ship is anchored right next to the island and will undoubtedly report the awesome battle he witnessed. Wheter he does it right away,or after engaging Luffy and (finally)getting his ass kicked is a different WMG.
  • Except that it seemed Punk Hazard is going to be no where near as easy as Fishman Island. And currently Luffy and Law are both down, while Smoker and Sanji are somewhat crippled (...by Law).
  • Nico Robin had a higher bounty than Luffy initially, so your logic isn't sound.
    • Well it depends on how you count it because while she joined while his bounty was 30 million his bounty was raised to 100 million right after she joined
  • Jossed, he got a raise after Dressrosa

Koala will join the Strawhat Pirates.
After the end of the Fishman Island Arc the Strawhat are likely to find some sort of new determination to save the fishmen/defeat the Tenryuubito due to what they've done/etc. Koala joining the Strawhat would be kind of symbolic of this. Perhaps she would have a backstory showing her finding out that she had unwittingly led her own savior to his death, had a breakdown, and ultimately formed a dream to unite the Fishmen and the humans. She could maybe fill in the role of a mediator of sorts, mirroring what Otohime has done. And while Jinbe may would fit more for the whole representation of their values thing, there's one huge of problem of the Strawhat having fish as primary part of their diet...
  • Koala would be what...30? By now? Just about...Would be interesting to see that, really. But she might just get a cameo as a revolutionary. Knowing Oda, that's very likely, actually.
  • Koala is 23... I think? If I'm not mistaken, her flashback was from 12 years ago. We need more crew member that has some kind of emotional connection with the fishmen, but no really important whether the crew is a fishmen or no. By having a human with that kind of ideal has more impact because after the Straw Hats action against Hody, the only people who still have doubt of human-fishmen co-exist are humans themselves. Seeing one of them has that kind of view surely shaken them up.
  • I agree with the view that Jinbe would be a better fit for having the whole "dream to unite Fishmen and humans" as well as having a better reason to be with the Straw Hat crew itself to begin with (considering how close he feels to Luffy and how guilty he feels for Arlong's treatment of Nami). Then there's also a WMG near the top of this page outlining Jinbe joining the crew - see above.
  • Shirahoshi could also fit that bill, with previous WMG putting her on potential true companion shortlist. Who better to fulfill her mother's dream of experiencing all humanity has to offer than her previously-isolated daughter?
    • But what would Shirahoshi contribute to the Straw Hats? Plus, she's too big to fit on the Thousand Sunny anyway, and besides, she'd be in constant danger from persons who'd want to sell mermaids as slaves. Again, I believe Jinbe is a better fit (he at least has experience on board ships, and can certainly defend himself well enough).
      • 1. Shirahoshi was shown in chapter 625 to have a legendary power over Sea Kings. 2. She's a gigantic mermaid. She could probably outpace the Thousand Sunny. 3. Shirahoshi won't be in any more danger from wannabe slavers than Luffy was for punching a world noble in the face. 4. We don't know how well Shirahoshi can defend herself. This is One Piece, for crying out loud. Being a sheltered crybaby doesn't prevent her from being a badass any more than Usopp's cowardice or Foxy's lack of confidence makes them pushovers. 5. Most importantly, the Straw Hats still need a counterpart for San Juan Wolf.
      • Chapter 626 mentions a prophesy that someone will appear to guide Shirahoshi and help her change the world. If that's not Foreshadowing then I don't know what is.
  • Unlikely, since [[she's a revolutionary. Hats off to the guy above who got that right]].
  • I'd put it in Jossed I guess

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!!!
  • Sabo has been found alive, but doesn't look like he's joining
  • Jossed, he seemed too busy in the Revolutionary

Sabo is going to die
Lessee...character-building flashback? Check. Intriguing and well-designed character? Check. Probability of dangerous pirates willing to kill children? Double check!
  • Alternatively, he's going to get kidnapped and enslaved by the World Nobles.
  • Or, he betrays Ace and Luffy.
    • Before Ace died, he mentioned Sabo as one of his good friends.
  • More proof: Sabo was part of the brothers ceremony thereby becoming one of Luffy's brothers; yet Luffy specifically stated during the War on Marineford, "Ace is the only brother I have in the world."
  • Confirmed, his ship was blown up.
    • This may be on its way to being jossed now that Chapter 668's page shows that someone has brought the news of the Straw Hats' return, as if telling Ace that his brother is fine. To top it off, nearby, there's a bottle and three sake cups.
    • With Chapter 731, NOW FULLY JOSSED.

Big Mom won't be on Whole Cake Island anymore by the time the Straw Hats reach it.
The tea party will either have already happened or be delayed, while Big Mom is busy elsewhere, and the Straw Hats will fight a different villain. Strong as they are, I don't think they're quite powerful enough to take on Big Mom at that point, and that a final few arcs will be needed for them to become strong enough to defeat her.
  • It's likely that they aren't intending to fight her at all right now; remember that the crew is only at half strength (plus help from Pedro, Carrot, and potentially Pekoms) and, even if they had the whole crew with them, they're not going to try and screw with one Emperor when they've already pissed off another one. This mission isn't going to be one where they fight (much); it's gonna be one where they extract Sanji and then get the hell out because Charlotte Linlin is gonna go berserk.
    • OP here, jossing my own theory. The Straw Hats have reached Whole Cake Island, and Big Mom's still there.

Rebecca is NOT the beautiful-lady-swordswoman-with-meat
She will turn up eventually either as a samurai from Wano Kuni or or one of Big Mom's daughters
  • I don't get it though, she WAS a beautiful-lady-swordsmen-with-meat in that situation...
  • I know, I just that Rebecca had so much hype,but turn out to be a disappointment
  • I'm just going to count this as jossed since Rebecca was indeed a beautiful-lady-swordsman-with-meat (regardless of her competence). There will probably be another one though.

There is an Ancient Weapon on Zou
From what we've gathered so far, there are ancient ruins, a tribes-people, Law's crew, and most importantly, Kaido's crew on Zou. Knowing that Kaido wants to start a war to destroy the world and there are ancient things on Zou, it's possible there's an ancient weapon there and his crew is searching for it. Law is pretty unpredictable, but he could have had his crew there to keep Kaido from finding the weapon. Also, Kinemon and co. were originally headed to Zou for some reason; perhaps the Ancient Weapon is one of those national treasures of Wano Country. Alternatively...
  • Jossed so far.

Jozu is the (physically) strongest character in the series
His Devil Fruit turns his body into diamond, which is of course extremely dense. Now, a normal human body has limiters that prevent full exertion of the muscles, to keep them from either tearing apart or outright liquefying due to the immense strain. With his muscles literally being as dense as diamonds, this is a complete non-issue for Jozu and he can use the full power of his muscles at all times. He's already displayed what is arguably the greatest feat of raw strength in the series so far, when he hefted a slab of ice the size of an ICEBERG at the Marines.
  • Diamond is just crystallized Carbon which has a density of 3,500, fairly middle of the road density (Osmium and Iridium are the most dense). Diamond is the HARDEST substance, but it is not the TOUGHEST (a regular hammer can smash Diamond.) Also, it melts at 4200K (meaning a Cyanogen fire can melt it) and is a good conducter. Basically, a character with Fire powers or lightning powers can screw him up.
  • Jossed by the narration's own declaration that Kaido is actually the strongest creature alive. Besides, I think a giant or any other really strong character would have been able to lift that iceberg. I mean, this is One Piece and science only goes so far to explain the things in the series- if the muscles of mid-tier characters like the pre-timeskip CP9 in this universe can be tightened to be stronger than steel, there's no reason to assume that the top tiers would have any troubles with muscle durability. I mean, do any of us REALLY believe that Kaido wouldn't be able to lift that iceberg?
  • Also, lastly, the logic behind this doesn't work because Jozu is a Paramecia, not a Logia; He covers his body in diamond, he isn't actually made of diamonds.
