Revolutionaries Will Attack The Reverie Theory
In the past few chapters, we learned two things :
– The Revolutionaries abandoned their HQ to BlackBeard.
– The Reverie is gonna take place in the upcoming days.
I think that those two events could be connected.
– The flight of the Revolutionary Army was revealed in the newspaper, so everyone will know about it. Will they remain inactive ? I don’t think so. In order to regain momentum, they need to make a strong move.
– Reverie is the perfect place for this : if they attack here, it will be as remarkable as the Marineford war. The news of the council are probably covered by many journalists, it insures a huge coverage. Moreover, a great part of the people who gather there represent exactly who they’re fighting against : corrupted and/or cruel leaders who don’t give a shit about their people (Wapol, Stelly…).
– The Cipher Pol 0 attacked Blackbeard some time after the Revolutionaries fled, so if the Revos are currently heading toward Mariejois, they’re some time ahead, they’re sure that a part of the strongest WG agents are away. It’s the perfect moment to attack.
– Although they were depicted having suffered an attack, I think, like many people, that the Revos didn’t suffer major losses. So they have still their full fighting potential.
What do you think? Will the Reverie remain a calm event? Or could the Revos interrupt the council?

Hierarchy of the World Government
THE WORLD GOVERNMENT’S ULTIMATE GOAL
Before I proceed with the actual speculation, I would like to clear the meaning of “World Government” for upcoming thoughts. As we know, the political organization is lead by the Gorosei, the “Five Elder Stars”:
They do not only hold the greatest power in the One Piece world commanding all the Admirals and Vice-Admirals, Kong, Magellan, the latest Pacifistas, groups like CP0 and – probably the guy with the most potential at all – Dr. Vegapunk. On top of that, since they are every non-pirate’s masterminds and even look like they would have serious fighting skills, they might be on a level with the very strongest – possibly on par with a Yonko’s strength each (- just imagine the upcoming war with four Yonkos and the Pirate King versus the five Elder Stars (alongside with all the other guys)).
According to this (and ignoring those marionettes called “Tenryuubito”) we might reduce the meaning of “World Government” to that geezer team without eyebrows. So to say, five guys with one aim.
Therefor, I want to discuss the question:
The great pirate era started with Roger’s last words and was refreshed by Whitebeard as he confirmed the One Piece to be real:
So we could assume that along with the pirates the WG wants to find the One Piece. But I suspect it to be not the whole truth. The One Piece treasure will only be a means to an end. Actually, it could not be simpler:
As obvious as it seems, since every living being (without Kaidou) wants to survive, it gets quite a different meaning if we consider how hard the WG already tried to do so. It is not only about defeating and imprisoning some pirates so concrete danger dissolves. The WG is in charge of possibilites “to become as immortal as possible”.
It probably started long time before Gol D. Roger and the following pirate era.
It is all about living forever – meaning they will not die by age, nor by any disease (or wound).
We do not know how Jewelry Bonney is related to the World Government. But we do know that they are interested in her:
We also know that she is able to manipulate people’s age:
Thus, she is pretty useful to reach immortality at least in one aspect – those who benefit from her power continually would not have to die of aging. But even if the fruit’s effects worked permanently, it would not be a durable solution. The effect could be revoked as the devil fruit user becomes unconscious or dead. Or just resists the WG’s will to help.
Law’s fruit was considered to be the ultimate fruit in the world:
Eventhough, we do not know how it works exactly. But we know that the user could give his life in order to make somebody “ageless”. Still, many discussions have been arisen what it could mean. Some speculate the benefitted individual does not age anymore, some even say he/ she/ it could only die by age, but not by wounds or diseases. (In the last case, Trafalgar Law’s and Bonney’s abilities combined could make the benefitted one truly immortal as long as “Bonney’s” effect does not get revoked (and after years renewed) – which made it imbalanced.)
Princess Mansherry’s Devil Fruit makes her able to heal wounds:
Its true potential is still unknown, e. g. if it was useful for (deadly) diseases, too, or if it could even revive (!) at its potentials pinnecale. Nevertheless, it also only prevents from dying indirectly. With Law’s Fruit being considered as the most valuable DF, I am not so sure about if the WG knew about Mansherry or the Chiyu Chiyu No Mi. Sengoku seemed somewhat amazed – as if he did not know about the fruit before:
Who knows – maybe the fruit’s ability will be reported to the WG by a “bad Marine” (like Bastille or so) or the CP0 meaning that Mansherry could get captured during the upcoming Reverie.
Even lesser is known about Kaidou. It was stated that he could not die, yet:
The WG’s dream seems to be his curse. Until now, it is not known, why and how he survived so far. It might be related to his possible Devil fruit or – and that would be inaccessible by the WG – just fate and/ or luck. (In case preordained “fate” existed in the One Piece world, the WG’s efforts would be useless either way.)
Ceasar Clown revealed that Dr. Vegapunk experimented to turn humans into giants:
We know from SBS Vol. 19 Ch. 168, p. 46 that giants are able to become way older than humans – up to 300 years:
Of course, obtaining a giants age would not lead to immortality, but it would buy some time if they could copy that effect of slow aging. Also, if the WG got to know why giants become that old, they might find a way to become even older.
As recently shown Dr. Kureha is quite vital at 141 years.
As we know, she always spoke of herself as a young woman. Now imagine if she would have found the secret to age like a giant. She would have been aged like a ~65 years old “normal OP-human”. She also will attend the Reverie. Maybe Wapol told information about Dr. Kureha to the WG in exchange which could lead to a capturing, too. Or maybe Dr. Kureha does already know Dr. Vegapunk. We will see – but it is for sure that her biological clock would be interesting to the WG.
Beyond the pirate theme of the 16th century from our real life, One Piece is influenced by futuristic science fiction aspects, too. Besides Dr. Vegapunk (and Franky), also Dr. Tsukimi seemed to work on “robotic” individuals.
In parallel to other experiments, Dr. Vegapunk created cyborgs. Cyborgs consist of biological individuals with mechanical parts:
At first glance, they just seem to be powerful military forces. But there could be a deeper meaning to their nature. If it was possible to replace every single (human) body part step by step, biologic individuals could be prevented from dying by age, diseases or wounds – as long as they are able to conservate the (human’s) conscious mind.
Until now, they seem to have failured in “recreating” a human being, since “Kuma” lost his personality:
But it could only be a matter of time, until Dr. Vegapunks finds out how “to replace a brain with its personality”. An important clue is that Dr. Vegapunk managed to transmit a Devil Fruit onto a lifeless object plus that Devil Fruits might transfer characteristics of the previous owner(s).
Not being a great military force, the automatas that Dr. Tsukimi build seem to have emotions:
Therefor Dr. Tsukimi seems to be the first one shown who created entirely artificial life:
Also, Enel just had to “breathe life into automatas” by electric energy “to (re)vive” them:
Using this very technology could mean that Dr. Tsukimi found a way to play God. Still we do not know where Dr. Tsukimi lived or to whom he could belong to. But maybe his residence was close to the Marines/ WG:
The question would be, why the WG did not use Dr. Tsukimi’s knowledge, yet. Probably, the Marines/ the WG did not know about him/ his knowledge/ what Automatas are. (But I guess Dr. Vegapunk most likely will or even does already know.)
Last but not least, I will link the WG’s goal to the big treasure One Piece which might be the only durable solution to survive.
Referring to my main theory
(- that OP’s loose template is based on “The Mysterious Cities of Gold” from 1982), the One Piece will be a device which bears the energy of the inner Sun (- besides countless (loose) parallels, Sun energy was once used peacefully by two kingdoms, but then a war broke out, Sun weapons were used and the kingdoms vanished). In TMCoG it was stated that it provides those who use it as a medicine that could cure any disease. Everybody could live eternally.
If that was the case, the WG would be highly interested in that device as well. But that is only speculation..~
(Also, the Gorosei could be aliens.)
At this rate, it seems that the Gorosei (= masterminds of world politics) are looking for different ways to evade death due to age, diseases and/ or wounds (at least temporarily) – …
- … either by Devil Fruits (of Law, Bonney, Mansherry(, Kaidou), …), …
- … or by biology knowledge about giants and/ or Dr. Kureha, …
- … or by advanced technology regarding cyborgs and automatas and the “One Piece”.
Nevertheless, nothing and no one seems to be invulnverable so nothing or nobody could become immortal, technically (- Kaidou was defeated before, still seems to have “luck”; Poneglyphs can be formed). But still, they try to survive eternally, thus becoming “as immortal as possible“.

THE NEXT ARC: SANJI DURING THE REVOLUTION/REVERIE ARC! PREPARE FOR THE THRONE WARS!
What I basically think is that Zou is now the first arc of a new saga with a new focus.
The “Pirate Alliance” saga is now over, we got our alliance and I think that the next arc which is the Reverie/Revolution Arc which I mentioned in my “History of the Revolution” arc is going to feature Sanji as it’s main character.
So as Doflamingo mentioned- the Throne Wars are coming and it’s big players- the pirates (Yonko, Shichibukai, Worst Gen), “Forces of Justice” (CP, Kaigun), and the RA will now begin to engage in different combats and the victor would be the one gaining the dominance eventually.
Now that there are a lot of revolutions due to Doflamingo’s downfall at the hands of Luffy, as mentioned by Dragon, and for that reason he now wants to assemble the “Intense” leaders of the RA (Which as mentioned above I believe includes Inuarashi and Nekomamushi), possibly for the strike that he plans during the Reverie which is nigh:
Now it seems reasonable that the message should arrive as soon as possible, and considering the height of Zunisha it seems reasonable that the messenger could be the same one that took Sabo away is chapter 794, the one that is/controls the Crows (Which some believe to be the same one in the silhouette shown above, but no evidence for that):
However, he came only to find Inu and Neko out-cold and severed, however Sanji was there as well.
The RA has already shown impressive amounts of knowledge, indicating that whatever Sanji has with his past, they might know that so the Crow-Man might have decided to ask him to perhaps help them locate the, what I believe to be a secret weapon, to both have more fire-power and to prevent the WG to take hold of Sanji, and the information, first.
Sanji agreed, after all the WG have done to him, and still does want to, as well as for his nakama’s sake to help the RA on this case so he wrote a letter for his nakama where he promises them to return.
Afterwards we might get the Revolution Arc, where we might receive a lot of new pieces of information- both regarding the Void Century, we’ll get Sanji’s past, we’ll know a lot about the Revolutionaries and most notably Dragon and we’ll see many characters return in the Reverie.
After all that the world of One Piece would change forever!
So hope you like that idea- I know it’s not as serious and specific as other theories of mine but I decided it was worth writing.
*Theory by Jewish Kaizoku
DONQUIXOTE DOFLAMINGO=EMPEROR COMMODUS?
This theory is based on the possibility that the character Donquixote Doflamingo was inspired by/based on the ancient Roman Emperor Commodus. This can perhaps shed some light on Doflamingo’s character in the near future, or just make for an interesting comparison (I hope ). There are parallels between Dressrossa and Ancient Rome too that can perhaps explain why Commodus may have been an inspiration for Doffy, but I placed that section at the very end. I will try my best to condense/expand it in the coming few days, any suggestions would be much appreciated!
Commodus & Doflamingo
Emperor Commodus was notorious for his behaviour and government decisions. Ancient Roman historians credit him for transforming Rome “from a kingdom of gold to one of iron and rust” (Cassius Dio).
Similarly Doflamingo’s rise to power in Dressrosa brought about a lot of tragedy. Commodus, unlike most of his predecessors was born into the imperial family, the son of Marcus Aurelius, he viewed the throne as his birthright and did not bother to justify his actions. Sounds familiar?
Like Doflamingo being a Celestial Dragon and not understanding why he should be deprived of his birthright. Similarly Marcus Aurelius was known for his humanity, a bit like Donquixote Homing. Commodus was unpopular with the ruling elite (Donquixote and Riku family) but was very popular with the Army and the common people (in large part thanks to his elaborate gladiatorial games).
Commodus had a twin brother who died in his youth and numerous sisters. He executed both of his brother-in-laws, cousin for conspiring against him and there are rumours that he killed his father (this rumour was adopted into the movie “The Gladiator”). Thus like Doflamingo, he committed patricide and to a certain extent, fratricide as well.
Early on in his life Commodus was supposedly led astray by his companions and “through them that he at first, out of ignorance, missed the better life and then was led on into lustful and cruel habits, which soon became second nature.” (Cassius Dio). This is similar to how Trebol gifted Doffy the gun who then used to kill his own father and of course his younger brother (not sure if the gun was the same).
Commodus suffered from megalomania, strongly believing in his own god-like status, physical strength and superiority to everyone else. He possessed immense physical strength and often participated in the gladiatorial fights and hunts he staged for the people. It was more of a sport for him. Something we see in Doflamingo who takes on hits like nobody’s business, mostly fearless, immensely strong as well. Similarly the people closest to Commodus attempted to assassinate him, most notably his sisters and his mistress. The people closest to Doflamingo attempt to do the same, Rocinante, Baby 5, Law. Other assassination plots failed too, as Commodus survives and seeks revenge. Similar to how Doflamingo survives the murder attempt(s) from Mariejois and seeks vengeance on the Celestial Dragons.
In the end, Commodus is strangled by his wrestling partner and after his death he is declared as a public enemy by the government who destroy all his statues.
What could this mean for Doflamingo?
I think Doflamingo will probably not end up in Impel Down, he will either be killed on the way there (CP0? Kaido?Blackbeard?) or somehow escapes before his arrival there and will meet his end elsewhere in the New World.
His death would cause chaos in the underground network and will end an era of the stable rule of the Yonkos. Just how Commodus’ death marked the end of an entire dynasty. I added Blackbeard as one of the potential killers because we all know how he likes to take advantage of someone’s weakened position and is on the hunt for powerful devil fruits and he String-String fruit is definitely an unusual one.
It will act as a trigger for supernovas to take action (as some of them have begun already) against the Yonkou and WG. A war between various pirate factions will be a possibility too. A point of no return of sorts for the “old powers” in the New World, the beginning of their decline. Just how Commodus’ reign and death was said to begin the end of the Roman Empire.
Dressrosa & Ancient Rome
I know most people say that Dressrosa is meant to be Spain, but to me it seemed encompass a general Mediterranean theme and Spain was part of the Roman empire and thus still has various monuments in the Greco-Roman style. The vibrant colours, climate, passion (regional stereotype) architectural elements and so on reflect that pretty well.
But the moment I saw the aerial view of Dressrosa it really reminded me of the models of ancient Rome.
Corrida Colosseum is a given of course, it even ends up mimicking the damage of the real Colosseum after Pica goes berserk. Interestingly, the real Colosseum was damaged by an earthquake (earth damage/shifts parallels Pica’s power in a way).
The underground part of Corrida Colosseum with all its corridors and cages is inspired by the underground network of its real-life counterpart and both can get filled with water.
But the Corrida Colosseum in Dressrosa is a perfect example of the classic Roman political tool: Bread and Games. A tool used by every self-respecting, ambitious Roman politician since way back when. Similarly Doflamingo, keeps the people in Dressrosa happy with grand architecture and spectacles on the arena, distracting them from the dark side of the reality. Perhaps it is not a coincidence for this arc to have so many parallels with ancient Roman history and some of its historical figures. That’s about it. Let me know your thoughts and thank you for reading it!

Each Straw Hat will have an Arc strongly revolving around them and their development.
Hi guys, quick fire theory here based upon what we know about Wanokuni and Dressrosa; in which I explore the ideas of separate arcs themed for each Strawhat currently within the crew.
As is common knowledge to most people here, the Wano arc is highly likely (although not confirmed) to give Zoro the spotlight at some point in some way, shape or form. There is a lot of evidence that points towards this, which is as follows:
- Wano is the country of Samurai, indicating the Arc will have a lot of swordsmen and swordswomen, Zoro is also a swordsman, unsurprisingly
- Zoro is the current owner of Shusui, the Katana of former Wanokuni national hero Ryuuma. Shusui is regarded by Wano residents to be a national treasure
- Zoro is to duel with Kin’emon over the fate of Shusui
- There are many parallels between Ryuuma himself and Zoro
- Roronoa-San is also dressed in a similar fashion to stereotypical Samurai and wields Katana, his appearance is semi-coherent and he follows his own strong code, he’d very much fit in at Wano
- It’s possible Zoro will learn to cut fire and potentially fight with fire too, in fact he will probably come into possession of new Katana
There is also another arc in the New World that has been themed on a Strawhat, this arc is Dressrosa and Usopp. Again there are a lot of things that show this, as I’m sure we’re all aware, but for the sake of memory I will list only a few ways in which the Dressrosa Arc was very much Usopps own:
- God Usopp, the 5* wanted man
- God Usopp the saviour of 8,000 + warriors
- Usopp unlocks or comes to the realization of Kenbunshoku Haki
- Usopp’s bounty increases by over 660% , the largest bounty increase every in One Piece to date
- Usopp is based upon Pinocchio, the Dressrosa arc has parallels to the Pinocchio story
Pinnocchio the liar:
- CP0-Aegis using Sogeking’s mask or something similar, throwback to Lucci and CP9 as well
It’s not just a coincidence that these two had arcs that were very coherent to themselves and their character development, giving them the spotlight, there are a few more pieces of evidence to suggest others will have their own arcs, but most notably Chopper and Zou:
- Chopper is a Zoan user, and Kaidou’s crew is likely to be exclusively Zoan, they were introduced to us on Zou
- Zou means Zoo and Elephant, both are references to animals, Chopper is an animal
- We saw this girl, who looks like the antithesis and palinode of chopper as a female Deer Minkman or something along those lines, point is they’re linked
Other arcs will include:
-Sanji and Kanokuni, the country of martial arts, where we will see Ideo, Gilly, Abdullah and Jeet
-Franky and the Vegapunk arc for very obvious cyborg and technology reasons
-Robin and CP0 as we know Lucci, her old enemy is in CP0, it’s likely to involve Poneglyphs
-Nami and a sky island due to weather links, or space (if it happens) as she can see the world from there
-Brook and an arc involving the undead or Laboon, maybe Moriah will be involved?
-Luffy and Raftel, finding the One Piece and becoming Pirate King
So, concluding this theory; simply each Strawhat will have an arc strongly revolving around them and their development in terms of character, progress towards goals and increasing strength. Choppers turn is next in Zou.

MONKEY D. DRAGON’S ORIGIN: THE CREATION OF THE REVOLUTIONARIES!
Hello once again everybody and welcome back to another theory for your entertainment. This time we shall dive into the origins of Monkey D. Dragon and the creation of the Revolutionary Army. This will talk about how Dragon meet Kuma, Ivankov and Dr. Vegapunk.
Before I start, I would first like to say that Monkey D. Dragon was NEVER an admiral. If he was, why is Dragon so mysterious and unknown even among the marines? Who could say that the Gorosei blacklisted him and erased his existence, but that still wouldn’t make sense becausepeople do not forget so easily. The existence of Avalo Pizzaro, Catarina Devon, Vasco Shot and San Juan Wolf were erased for years and what happened when they showed up in Marineford? Random fodder marines with one glance knew their names, epithets and the crimes they commented.
Alright. Obviously Dragon is apart of the Monkey D family, but he seems so different from his son and grandfather(still think he is a “moron” though).
All three of them are from Goa country, which consist of Goa kingdom, Foosha Village and the Grey Terminal mountains. Like Luffy, Garp was raised in the mountains.
Dragon however, was raised in the Goa kingdom with the nobles. Garp was poor so he lived in the mountains, but since he was a marine, he had the funds to get a house in Goa kingdom where Dragon was born, to ensure that his son and wife would have a good life.
Garp of course, regularly took Dragon to the mountains to train him to be a marine, and Dragon developed a sense of justice very early in life. Dragon periodically went to Grey Terminal trash heap, where he became friends with the commoners and learned the value of human life.
Seeing the difference between the nobles and commoners made Dragon upset. He believed that everyone should be equal and was disgusted with how the nobles treat the commoners like trash and kills them off without batting an eye.
Dragon wanted to change Goa kingdom, but he didn’t have the power to do so. He didn’t want to become a marine because his father was a famous Vice Admiral who had little pull with the WG. Monkey D. Dragon joined the World Government itself or more specifically, Cipher Pol.
Dragon was “special” because he was the son of Garp and because was already very intelligent and strong(due to Garp’s training), he moved up the Cipher Pol’s like wildfire.
Dragon has always been curious about his D lineage, as even Garp has no idea what it meant. Dragon got really curious and confused because of this:
The rivalry between Gol D. Roger and Monkey D. Garp.
Both men had ‘D’ in their name but according to Garp, they apparently come from different families and have no relation to each other.
While a member of Cipher Pol however, Dragon meet two people: Jaguar D. Saul and Dr. Vegapunk, who is also a ‘D’. Like Dragon, Saul was curious about his D lineage but he didn’t think too much about it. Vegapunk however, was very curius like Dragon. They became friends and Dragon was shocked to learn of the terrible experiments the WG make Vegapunk do. Despite that, two secretly worked together to find out more about their lineage.
Dragon always believed in moral justice, but his justice is very extreme just like Saul, who easily defected from the marines to do what he felt was right. Dragon time in Cipher Pol revealed quite a bit about the lies of the WG, but that is expected with a government system. Dragon’s disgust with the WG hit a boiling point when he was promoted to the same position as these guys:
Cipher Pol Aegis 0.
As a member of CP0, Dragon worked directly under the Tenryubitto and Gorosei. CP0 specializes in cover ups, blackmail, lies and murder and Dragon had a front row seat to the Gorosei and Tenryubitto’s corruption. He thought Goa kingdom was bad, but nothing compared to the Tenryubittos and they controlled the world. Dragon knew that freedom wouldn’t be realized as long as the current WG exist, but he still tried to change the WG from the inside.
Dragon came to loguetown 24 years ago to witness the death of a follow D that he questioned whether he was good or bad. The WG obviously says he’s a bad guy but from Garp’s stories, Gol D. Roger was a good man.
2 years after Roger was executed(22 years ago), Dragon was 100% convinced that he had no chance of changing the WG from the inside. The reason for that was because of the Ohara Massacre.
In this massacre, he learned from Kuzan that his friend Jaguar D. Saul was killed and that innocent refuges were slaughtered.
CP9 was tasked with making sure that the massacre was a success. If CP9 was informed, so was CP0 and….
Dragon overheard Clover’s speech. He knew that the WG was hiding something and it had to be destroyed. As long as the WG exist, there will be no freedom. Dragon defected from the WG but for the WG, he simply disappeared.
Dragon informed 2 people of his defection: Vegapunk and Kuzan. Vegapunk agreed with Dragon that a revolution was necessary and decided to remain in the WG as Dragon’s inside man, while Dragon carefully creates and expands his organization. Kuzan however, turned down the offer as he thought a revolution was too extreme and thought he could change the WG as a marine. Dragon never told his father because he’d knew Garp would try to stop him.
Now then over the past 22 years, Dragon has created the most dangerous organization that the WG has ever seen.
Vegapunk is a revolutionary spy in the WG.
And Dragon’s left and right hand is Emperio Ivankov and Bartholomew Kuma.
They were with Dragon 12 years ago at Grey Terminal.
So in the timespan of 10 years, Dragon recruited Kuma and Ivankov. Lets into more detail with Kuma and Ivankov’s recruitment.
Ivankov was Dragon’s first revolutionary recruit. Reason I say this is because Ivankov seems to be the revolutionary who knows Dragon the best.
They even love watering snails together.
Now the question is, why did Ivankov join the revolutionaries? Well we need to recap on some things about Ivankov first.
Ivankov is the queen of Kamabakka Kingdom which translates to “Kingdom of Transvestites.”
I really don’t think transvestites are treated equally in the OP world as many men reacted indifferently to them(much like in real life). In Impel Down, the guards shouted “Look at what they are wearing!”, “What the heck are they wearing!?” and “They are dressed to kill!”
Kamabakka Kingdom is a place for freedom; where people can be what they want to be without being judged. Dragon meet Ivankov on Kamabakka island and treated him and everyone else on the island like an equal. Not only that, Dragon probably saved saved Kamabakka kingdom from WG agents who tried to destroy it. Kamabakka kingdom is just as well known as Amazon Lily, and they are famous for their body enchancing cuisine. Ivankov most likely turned down an offer to become allies with the WG, so the agents tried to back at them.
Anyways that’s just pure speculation but bottomline is that Dragon promised Ivankov to bring a world where everyone is free and Ivankov followed behind.
Here is where things get interesting. Unlike Ivankov, it wasn’t easy for Dragon to get Kuma to join.
What Ivankov said in Marineford implies that he and Kuma had a SERIOUS fight before. Not only that, Kuma also had a serious fight with Monkey D. Dragon.
Before I get into the fight between Kuma and Dragon, we must first understand Kuma. Obviously Kuma is a bear so lets look at what bears represent.
Bear is spirit keeper of the West, the place of darkness, maturity and good harvest. From this place, Grandfather Bear gives strength, introspection and knowledge.
Bears are active during the night and day. This symbolizes its connection with solar energy, that of strength and power, and lunar energy, that of intuition. It enhances and teaches those with this totem how to develop both within themselves.
Grandfather Bear is a solitary dweller and master of his domain. This teaches us the importance of independent thinking and to seek peace in quite meditation.
Bears are sensitive to Mother Nature’s cycles. They sleep long hours in the winter living on fat stored in their bodies. It teaches us how to go within and find the resources for survival and how to remain balanced amid change. This medicine is a reminder of the great circle of life and rebirth, renewal and fresh beginnings.
Bear is the embodiment of strength and is fierce to a threat on its lair. It is not wise to come between the mother bear and her cubs, teaching us ways to always protect those we love.
In Native American mythology, bears are known as the guardian spirits of the forest.
Smokey the Bear anyone?
Also, take a look at Kuma as a kid and that book he has. It says “Ninokin.”
It refers to Ninomiya Sontoku.
Ninomiya was a prominent agricultural leader, moralist and economist.
Bartholomew Kuma HATED the WG.
And that’s because the WG burned down Kuma’s village in the forest and it was no accident. Helping his people rebuild, Kuma was enraged and decided to become his people’s protector with his Paw Paw Fruit. Any trespasser would get blown away by Kuma.
Of course, Dragon and Ivankov came to the burned down forest and Kuma attacked. Dragon, who wanted to help the poor villagers, thought Kuma was responsible so he ordered Ivankov to hold off Kuma while he tended to the people. Dragon learned the truth from the citizens but before he could go anything, Kuma once again attacked him but he was able of emerge victorious.
Dragon told Kuma of his dream to destroy the WG and bring freedom to the world, but Kuma didn’t believe Dragon as he was a former WG agent. In order to be sure that Dragon was sincere, Kuma had a suggestion: when his village and forest was being burned down, Kuma repelled the pain of all the suffering villagers into a gigantic air bubble, and if Dragon can shoulder the pain of his people, Kuma will join the revolution.
Ivankov of course thought it as outrageous, but Dragon went for it. Much to the shock of Kuma and Ivankov, Dragon survived. This is where Ivankov witnessed Dragon’s inhuman vitality.
Dragon surviving that much pain was a miracle.
With hope that true freedom can be achieved for his people, Kuma joined the revolutionaries and became Dragon’s most loyal friend.
8 years ago, Dragon’s face became known to the world as revolutionary.
It was 12 years ago that Dragon saved the commoners of Goa kingdom.
12 years ago, the Revolutionary Army became active, targeting kingdoms to recruit suffering citizens who wanted freedom. However, during one of his expeditions, there was a big incident involving the marines.
I’m speculating, but I say Dragon had a run-in with the marines(with Doberman and Akainu present) and showcased his Conqueror’s Haki to escape a kingdom with new revolutionaries in hand. Dragon’s unnatural CoC brought forth a storm and blew away a marine fleet.
The Gorosei feared this man as they recognized his description. Monkey D. Dragon became the most wanted man in the world do to him knowing about the WG corruption from being CP0 agent, being Garp’s son, being a D, him looking for the poneglyhs and leading an organization that directly opposes the WG and it will continue to grow until the WG falls.
In the future, Dragon will recruit…
Koshiro. He is not a full-fledge Rev yet, but he is an ally. He gave the revs food after their time in Goa kingdom.
X. Drake. A marine turned pirate to pursue his own justice. Drake joined Kaidou because he wants to severe the WGs weapon shipment with the yonkou and take the said yonkou down.
CP9. They are in an alliance with Drake and believe that pirates will continue to run amok as long as the current WG exist.
Jewelry Bonney. Bonney hates the WG and all of her reasons for becoming a pirate will soon be gone.
Crocodile. The Croc will lose all ambition to find ancient weapons and will want to exact revenge on the WG for what they did to him.
Smoker. Smoker never held the WG in high esteem and his disgust will hit a boiling point when the WG tires to execute Tashigi
Kuzan. Kuzan is not a revolutionary yet but he will join once Akainu and WG executes the WG Takeover.

THE POSSIBILITY OF BOA HANCOCK BEING A STRAW HAT?
Now this is something that has made me kinda upset for a while now, we have little to no main-female fighters in the crew. Nami and Robin don’t get , nearly as much attention as Luffy, zoro, or Sanji; this is why i believe that the next female straw hat should be on the same level as Luffy, zoro, or sanji. That is why i believe that Boa Hancock will join the straw hats
Why Hancock? I know many of you will disagree, so just listen to my points
HANCOCK WAS ALREADY FORESHADOWED
Now i want you guys to take a close look at Nami’s outfits. I believe they are foreshadowing future strawhat members, let me explain. See the outfit Nami is wearing in the top right corner, it looks very similar to the outfit Robin wore when she was Miss all Sunday
now take a look at that picture again
see the top left panel; who wears a dress that is similar to that which nami wore? Boa Hancock
here Luffy says that he will return the favor that Hancock gave him. I believe that this is foreshadowing a future event.
we also know that both marine admiral Fujitora and vice admiral Smoker are currently trying to stop the Shichibukai system. Due to the world knowing about the situation of dressroa; because of this, i believe it is likely that the Shichibukai system will be abolished during reverie. So if that happens, what’s going to happen to Amazon Lily I believe Gloriousa described it best(foreshadowing?). Without Hancock’s title as shichibukai, Amazon Lily will be known as a pirate’s country; because of this, it will be deemed a threat by the WG and will be targeted. The marines will send a navy admiral as well as a buster call to defeat the pirates; this will be a complete tragedy. Many innocent people as well as kujas will be killed by the Marines, Hancock is powerful but wouldn’t be able to defeat an admiral; she will lose and be forced to surrender. By the end of the battle, many will be dead; but what will happen to those who are living? Well i believe that they will become slaves for the CDs.So here’s where Luffy’s debt comes in, i believe that Luffy will lead a raid on Mairejois in an attempt to free the slaves as well as the Kujas. How did i reach this conclusion? Well for one, Hancock actually mentions parallels between fisher tiger and Luffy
Furthermore you got the relationship to Sun Wukong.Did you ever wonder why Luffy’s surname was Monkey? Well that’s because he is based on the monkey king, Sun Wukong. Now i am not going to go too in depth with these connections, however if you disagree with the idea that Luffy is based on Wukong; please PM me and we can have a long, good conversation about it. Anyways in the book, Journey to the west; Wukong rebels against heaven and defeats heaven’s army. In one piece Luffy=wukong and Mariejois=heaven, so it makes sense if Luffy were to do a raid on Mariejois.Furthermore their have been a few arcs in the New world that paralleled with arcs from the first part of the grand line, most notably the connections between dressrosa and alabasta. So wouldn’t it be fitting for their to be an arc that parallels enies lobby? Well i believe that arc will be the “attack on mariejois arc”, in which Luffy will raid mariejois in an attempt to free hancock, similar to enies lobby where luffy raided enies lobby to free robin.
Now who will be the main antagonists of this arc?
I believe it is likely to be Cp-0 due to the fact that they serve directly under the CDs and due to similarities between this arc and enies lobby.
Once Luffy beats Cp-0 and frees the slaves, he will have an encounter with akainu or Kong; but will shortly be saved by Monkey D Dragon. Monkey D Dragon will finally meet luffy and tell luffy about his mother; this makes sense as during enies lobby, Luffy met his grandfather and learned about ,his father so it makes sense that after the “new world version” of enies lobby, luffy will meet his father and learn about his mother .
Once dragon saves Luffy; all of the Kuja bar hancock will become revolutionaries, hancock will join the SH crew. Why will Hancock refuse to join the revos? well here are the reasons
- during this arc, Hancock’s secret past would have been exposed, hancock said herself that she couldn’t be around the other Kuja if her secret was exposed
- to follow her dream of marrying luffy(ik it sounds weird, but i promise i’ll explain it later
Luffy will simply marry hancock just because he feels like it, he would not be like Sanji. I know Oda doesn’t like relationships in his manga, but he does like comedy; which is why i really see this happening. Hancock would be the one who is really devoted, where as luffy acts as if Hancock was just another one of his nakama; which would be pretty funny if they were considered married, Oda has done something similar with Sai and Baby5 so i could really see him doing it with Luffy and Hancock. Furthermore after Roger found One piece, he did settle down and have a family, so considering the parallels between luffy and roger; i see it as a possibility.
- spy(her power compliments this…..and she’s hot)
- secretary(by this time in the series, luffy would already have some territory that he protects(fishman island, dressrosa, and some kaido territories) so luffy would need someone who could moniter the conditions of those islands and receive incoming messages from those islands. )
- maid(i could see her doing this just to please luffy)
Hancock, has had a chapter named after her; this is something all the SHs have in common
Hancock has a bit in common with the other female members of the SH
- just like nami and robin, hancock was screwed over by the WG(nami: pirates were actually working for arlong, robin: ohara, hancock: she was a slave
- just like nami and robin, hancock was luffy’s “enemy”( nami “stole” the going merry, robin worked for crocodile)
- if my prediction is true; then just like nami and robin, hancock will be saved by luffy
Hancock is one of the few people outside of the crew whom luffy addresses by name, not with a nickname; this means that Luffy realls trusts hancock
Luffy doesn’t normally address people by their real name unless they are really close to them(example: he calls cavendish cabbage, he calls law tora-guy, he calls shirahoshi yowahoshi)
Will she be too overpowered?
If Sanji and Zoro get stronger by the time we meet her(and they will), then no she won’t be too OP.
She does in fact have a sad backstory, which makes her a good candidate for the crew

HOW WILL ODA HANDLE THE NEW ALLIES OF THE SHS (PAST, CURRENT AND FUTURE)
OK, most people have been wondering about the next nakama, but a lot have ignored the allies and how will Oda handle them? Will they follow Luffy on his journey? Will they stay in their country? How will it be?
So I have been thinking about it for a long time and I tried to be objective and I want you guys if you have better ideas to comment for sure and give me your opinions. Now I will write a lot, so be patient please cause I tried to analyze everything
First of all, there are two concept I want to clarify here:
1- When I say allies here, I’m not talking about allies who are on equal terms, no I meant allies who are under the command of Luffy and waiting for his orders, and that’s how most big Pirates in the new world operates.
2- The way I analyzed it, was a way where I separated the allies into two major groups.
A) People Who will stay at the kingdoms and islands who are under Luffy and protect his territory.
B) People who will follow him on his journey, BUT on their own ship not the sunny.
So, there was something I have noticed in this arc and how Oda introduced Luffy’s allies that made me believe that he will follow this pattern and I will go through it in a minute.
When he introduced these allies, there were two kind of allies:
1- Pirates with bounties
2- Assassins, Mercenaries, Kings, Gangs, criminals (but there was not a single bounty on these guys, because Marines only cares about hunting pirates)
Now, the first group, the pirates, they will have to keep sailing no matter what because of their bounties and because they cannot stay on the same island to protect a territory of Luffy, because we have seen what Law was aiming for when he wanted Doflamingo to resign from shichibukai system. If Doflamingo did it, he cannot stay in Dressrosa no matter what cause he will be hunted by marines. Same we can say about the pirates. So how come other yonko and big time pirates have people protect their islands and territories if the yonko isn’t there and there is a bounty on these guys like scotch for example? It’s because these guys are not pirates, and they don’t have bounties, they are gangs, mercenaries assassins, Kings and their troops. So they can rest assured if they stayed in that island to protect it.
I think you guys understood what I’m getting at. So I’ve organized and sorted the characters I’ve seen in this arc as allies into the two groups:
A- Pirates with Bounties:
1- Cavindish and the beautiful pirates.
2- Bartolomeo and the Bart club.
3- Bellamy (I will get into him in a minute since he doesn’t have a crew anymore and no he’s not joining SHs Lol)
This group I will talk about them later, I will first talk about the others in details
B- Others who doesn’t have bounties: These guys will be the ones to protect the future territories of Luffy, and Oda mixed them in this arc together as a foreshadowing of what islands Luffy will take over besides Fishman Island in the future. And these guys will stay in the island to protect it, until the final war where Luffy will ask them all to help him.
Let’s look at them one by one:
1- Kinemon, Kanjuro and momonoske (Don’t have bounties, Wano will be Luffy’s territory and they will protect it)
2- Sai and Boo (They are from Hanokuni the land of flowers and they don’t have a bounty cause they are just a gang not pirates, their grandpa Chinjao was a pirate but not them, they have the happo navy under Luffy’s command already by Chinjao, but they will stay at Hanukuni to protect it for Luffy until the final war. Also, Baby 5 was very young about 10 years old when she was under Doffy as shichibukai so I doubt she got a bounty at all)
3- Blue Gilly and Ideo: One from the long leg tribe and one from the long arm tribe. I was watching a review video of EOP, check him out he’s great, but he mentioned something about it was based on a story of two tribes long legged and long armed and that they were working alone separately, but that these long leg and long arm tribe will only be at the max power when they unite and work together and who will do that? Luffy and Blue gilly and Ideo will protect this town cause I have a feeling that these two tribes currently are hating each others and work separately although they live near each others
4- King Riku, Kyrus, Viola and Rebecca: Kyrus does have a bounty, BUT it’s a picture of him as a toy and it doesn’t even mention his name, so there is no problem for him. As for Viola, she doesn’t have a bounty and the reason I say this is Doffy was most probably a shichibukai for 10 years because as I said before he cannot stay in an island if he was hunted, so him taking Dressrosa mean he got to shichibukai system 10 years ago and then attacked it, and with that, the WG will not put a bounty on someone who works for him, and also Fuji will try to be blind about her and not give her a bounty after Doffy is down since he knows that she is a princess and that it’s the result of the WG corruption she was with Doffy and to protect her family. So either way, these guys will stay in Dressrosa and will protect it.
5- Same can be said for Prudence Kingdom with King Elizabetllo and Dagama the tactician.
6- We have hajroudin who wants to be king of giants, so he most probably needs to stay in Elbaf, and this island is gonna be one of Luffy’s territory as well.
7- Abdullah, Jet, Slayman and Orlumbus (I don’t know from where they are but they will stay somewhere and protect a place)
Now that I’ve finished from the 2nd group, I wanna talk about the first group, the pirates who will follow Luffy in his journey. And here is what I think. I believe that Oda is gonna make the New World a bit different in the way they make their journey. See, people like Kidd, Law, Drake and so on, these guys were just like Luffy in the way they sail, an island after an island and so on. But in the new World, we have seen something different. Kidd had a hideout and a base for his pirate crew. And most pirates in the New World do have a main base including all 4 emperors like Shanks and BB who Luffy have a lot of similarity to them as we know.
That leaves me to believe that Luffy will also have a main base and the journey will be a bit different from now on. They will stay in that Base, if they want to go on a journey to a certain island to explore it and possibly make it his territory, then they go, but after that, they return to that base and not go to the next island immediately. Luffy will need more than one ship in the future in case of there is a problem in one of his territory, and that’s where Luffy orders Bartolomeo’s crew to go and solve that problem. After all Bartolomeo has always wanted to be like that and we all know him being on the main ship is gonna be a bit annoying if he kept fangasming, so that is the best way I see it. Same for Cavindish whom I believe that will be under Luffy in his own ship. As for Bellamy, since he doesn’t have a ship, I really believe that him and Bart built a strong bond, and that he will Join Bart as his right hand man in Bart’s ship.
If there is a message Luffy wants to deliver to someone and so on, he can send Bart with that message, like they are ambassador of Luffy, just like how Pekoms and Tamago works for Big Mom and how Rockstar is working with Shanks
There are many reason I say that this is how it is gonna be from now on in the New World.
1- In the New World, you need to rest after one single journey, the islands are very close to each other unlike before , meaning about only one day journey from an island to another. And going to the next island injured is a big problem.
2- In this way, all the strawhats will get an enough time to train in their base on the new technique that they have developed during the last journey. For example, if they have a base now (which they don’t), Usopp can train on his haki with Sanji or someone else since he only unlocked it, and with that we get a faster growth in each Strawhat which is better than a whole timeskip just so that Usopp can train it. This way it is better with every strawhat who wants to increase their strength and their techniques. Hell, they might go training with their allies, people Like Cavindish and so on just like how we saw Ace fighting and training with Squard in the flashback
3- The Strawhat are bound to go back to many islands in the future whether we like it or not. There is Fishman Island which I expect a huge war will happen there and Luffy will definitely go back for it to protect it, and there is Amazon Lily in Calm Belt which was foreshadowed that the SHs crew all of them will pay them a visit (said by Luffy himself before he went to Impel Down, and I will explain later on the reason of their visit)
So as I see, from now on, the strawhats journey will not be one way to the front, no they will go back to some islands for missions, or a visit and so on. That’s why Luffy will have a hideout and will have a base for his crew like all other pirates do.
Now, what I want to talk about is what ships in the future I expect it to be under Luffy. And when I say ships I mean fleets other than the sunny under his command.
What I expect him to have are these fleets and maybe more but these who I remember for now:
1- Sunny and the main ship with the official SHs members and their number is unknown yet since it’s up to Oda.
2- “The beautiful pirates” under Cavindish (Let’s face it, he will be just crazy to be popular and what better way than following the future pirate king and not letting Luffy have all the glory Lol)
3- “Bart club pirates” with Bartolomeo (Captain) and Bellamy (Vice captain)
4- “The Sun Pirates” under Aladdin (captain) and Jinbie I believe he will join inside the sunny itself, cause when he said that he will break his deal with Big Mom, he told Luffy to invite him on Sunny ship not just being a subordinate on another ship. On the other hand, we can see that the Sun pirates are working for Big Mom now but it seems that Jinbie isn’t the one in charge, that’s why I’m saying Aladdin is the one, besides, they have bounties, so they cannot stay behind in Fishman Island to protect it, so they will have to sail the sea rather than being hunted and Jinbie joining Luffy meaning they also will join Luffy but on their ship. On the other hand, Fishman Island as Luffy’s territories will be guarded by 70,000 soldiers and the prince Fukaboshi who promised Luffy to to rewrite the legend of the Great Neptune Nights by leading the strongest army on the ocean floor according to what they promised.
5- “Kuja Pirates” lead by Boa Hancock, and before attacking me, here is why I believe their ship will be a subordinate of Luffy. Forget about how obsessed Hancock of Luffy and how much she likes him. I’m gonna talk about events that is about to happen. I meantioned earlier that I will say the reason the SHs pirates will pay a visit to Amazon Lily. The reason is that Hancock will be hunted down by the marines and the WG. Why? Think about it, Fujitora’s main objective is to abolish the shichibukai system. Meaning if that happened, and Hancock has a bounty, hell the WG might even know that she was a slave and she escaped. She is bound to be hunted by the marines and WG. This is where Luffy will declare that Amazon Lily is his territory cause Luffy will not let them suffer as we know. and since Hancock will stay a fujitive who has a bounty, there is not a better choice than her ship joining Luffy under her command while there are a lot of strong Kuja warriors still there on the island to protect it.
6- And don’t laugh at me, “The legendary pirate Buggy Sensei and his fleet Lol” and the reason is the same reason of Hancock. Shichibukai will be abolished, and the marines already think highly of him as someone very strong because he was on Roger ship and the brother of Shanks Lol. So, this time, Buggy will be hunted down in a way more serious manner than how they ignored him and thought he is a lowly pirate, which is why I believe that he will go under the protection of either Luffy or Shanks, but we all know how he has pride when it comes to Shanks, so he will choose Luffy. Also because I believe that Shanks will die in the future so Buggy is bound to help Luffy eitherway.
7- “Giant Warrior Pirates” Led by Dorry and Brogy. These two giants topic will be brought again when SHs go to Elbaf. As I said, hajrodin doesn’t have a bounty so he will stay there and protect Elbaf until the day he become king of giants. But there are three Giants who might have a bounty, and will be on that ship, we have Dorry, and Brogy and also we have the Giant from Auction House in Saboady who escaped and he promised that one day he will repay his dept to the SHs. he is a slave, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he has a bounty.
8- “CP9”, I really believe that against CP0, they will appear and will help the SHs to take them down and since they are fugitives, they cannot stay alone, some are speculating that they are already under kaido, but we all know even if that is true they will not continue that way. That’s why I see two ways for them at the end. Either joining Luffy this way, or they join the Revs. Some are saying they will be under X-Drake, but to be honest I doubt it cause tbh, I hold all the respect to Drake, but I think Lucci is stronger.
9- And the best allies Luffy can ever have and the pirate crew that their leader have ordered them to protect Luffy and their commander was Luffy’s brother. “The Whitebeard Pirates” lead by Marco. I really believe that they will be under Luffy’s command in the final war. Many people will disagree and will say that this is too much of a fleet, but let me tell you this:
First, Luffy will not make them under his command right away. No, there will be a looooot of journeys and a lot of arcs before Luffy gain this much power and make these kind of allies under his command. For example, an ally like the “Whitebeard pirates” are only gonna be under Luffy during and after Blackbeard arc. Cause the Whitebeard pirates must have a hand in taking BB down in my opinion due to their history, so they will be under Luffy’s command after that when they go to fight the WG as a whole.
Secondly, When the SHs go up against the WG as a whole, they are gonna have to fight against 10 important very powerful figures. Cause this fight isn’t just against the marines like before when WB faught against them, no, this time they are gonna face the whole power of the WG including the (Marines + Cipher Pol + The 5 Gorosei). I will neglect CP0 leader, and I will only say there is just 10 people who have an incredible power. they are 3 admirals, 1 fleet admiral, 1 chief of staff, and 5 gorosei (who I believe on a completely different level than the admirals themselves)
So this army of Luffy even with that power is still lacking and pale compared to the WG. Now of course the Revs will be included and also many other pirate groups in the future of One Piece will be under Luffy, I’m just saying it’s not much. After all, that final war will engulf the whole world like WB said
Damn, I wrote a lot, I hope you enjoyed this thought about how will Luffy will handle the allies under Luffy, and tell me your thoughts.
