Back in chapter 801 when Joker made he famous speech in regards to the throne wars, he made quite an uproar in the One Piece fan base. However current events made one particular line stand out among the rest…
“Who will betray whom!?”
You might be wondering… why that line in particular?
Well, let me tell you my suuuuuuuuuper fascinating theory that has been floating around my head for quite a while now.
Back in chapter 821… We find out that Apoo is now under Kaidou
Following that, a few chapters later, we find Captain Kidd alone in a cell, battered and bruised.
Does this mean Apoo is the traitor? It’s easy to say, and it might very well be true, but I believe the real traitor is actually none other than…
My reasoning behind this lies in his character traits and abilities, Kaidou’s grand entrance, and Jack being able to enter Zou multiple times despite not having a Mink on his crew.
Basil as a character is very stoic and foreboding. Even when encountering Kizaru he calmly and correctly predicted with his powers that he would not die in his encounter.
Besides his abilities of prediction using his cards, his devil fruit allows him to use voodoo dolls made of straw to redirect the damage to other people. As a side note, I don’t believe the people here are his crew members; because they would definitely know how their captain’s Devil Fruit works, and perhaps following voodoo doll conventions, Basil had these men’s DNA embedded in the straw dolls. But this still doesn’t answer the question of “is Hawkins the traitor?”
Here is what I believe is the case… Hawkins already knew in advance, using his abilities, that the Sky Island of Legend’s location would coincide with Captain Kidd’s base. Something along the lines of: “Probability of location relating to Kidd’s base: 100%!” This would explain why Hawkins had this expression. He was surprised with the method Kaidou used to get down, but he wasn’t surprised in the slightest that he had arrived. His predictions after all, have proven to be correct thus far.
Hawkins’ surprise in this panel, may very well be, following my logic that he was surprised with Kaidou’s method… Awe, due to the Yonko not suffering any sort of damage after falling down such a long way (10,000 metres) Among the three, you can see that he seems the least concerned, not even taking a battle stance.
Because of this, its important to know why Kaidou would accept Hawkins into his crew in the first place, because alliances in One Piece often means both parties benefit from one another. This is where Hawkins’ real life identity comes into play, John Hawkins.
Eustass Captain Kidd = 13th century pirate monk “Eustace” + 17th century Scottish pirate “William Kidd”
X Drake = 16th Century Privater “Sir Francis Drake”
Basil Hawkins = Same as above “John Hawkins” + 17th century pirate ship’s medic Basil Ringrose.
Capone “Gang” Bege = Again same as above “Thomas Cavendish”
Trafalgar Law = 18th Century English Pirate “Edward Law”
Jewelry Bonney = 18th Century female pirate “Anne Bonney”
Urouge = 16th century Arab Pirates, the Barbarossa brothers “Urouge”
Scratchmen Apoo = 19th Century Chinese pirate “Cheung Po”
Admiral Sir John Hawkins (also spelled as Hawkyns) (1532 – 12 November 1595) was an English naval commander and administrator,merchant, navigator, shipbuilder, privateer and slave trader. His elder brother and trading partner was William (b, c, 1519). He was considered the first English trader to profit from the Triangle Trade, based on selling supplies to colonies ill-supplied by their home countries, and their demand for African slaves in the Spanish colonies of Santo Domingo and Venezuela in the late 16th century. He styled himself “Captain General” as the General of both his own flotilla of ships and those of the English Royal Navy and to distinguish himself from those Admirals that served only in the administrative sense and were not military in nature. His death and that of his cousin and mentee, Sir Francis Drake, heralded the decline of the Royal Navy for decades before its recovery and eventual dominance again helped by the propaganda of the Navy’s glory days under his leadership.
As treasurer (1577) and comptroller (1589) of the Royal Navy, Hawkins rebuilt older ships and helped design the faster ships that withstood theSpanish Armada in 1588. One of the foremost seamen of 16th-century England, Hawkins was the chief architect of the Elizabethan navy. In the battle in which the Spanish Armada was defeated in 1588, Hawkins served as a vice admiral. He was knighted for gallantry. He later devised the naval blockade to intercept Spanish treasure ships leaving Mexico and South America.”
There are a couple of things to note about Hawkins’ real life counterpart. John Hawkins was the first English slave trader to profit from theTriangle Trade. Countries demanded for slaves in the Spanish colonies of Santo Domingo. He had a cousin named Sir Francis Drake. X-Drake’s real life counterpart, and we know X-Drake is a part of Kaido’s crew. Another interesting to note is that on the One Piece wiki, both X-Drake and Hawkins are from the North Blue.
Santo in english means Holy, and a certain Don Quixote Doflamingo belonged to a group called the Tenryubito from the Holy Land of Mariejois. Another thing to note is that Doflamingo is Domingo with the added “fla” in between, and that Dressrosa is based on Spain. Immediately, we see MANY immediate links to both Kaido and Doflamingo and his underground trades using SMILE.
So, how does Hawkins, besides being the possible cousin of X-Drake, relate to the occurrences in Zou? As seen in the amazing conclusion of One Piece Chapter 816 “Dog vs. Cat”, the entire island of Zou kept their mouths shut in regards to Raizou when threatened by Jack. Nekomamushi goes as far as to say that the Minks would never rat out their friends to the enemy.
But… What about Minks outside of Zou, with their own crews and bonds of friendship?
We know that Bepo helped the minks defend against the attacks of Jack on Zou, and that Pekoms had no idea that his home island has been attacked. So neither of these two minks could possibly be the traitor…
Judging from Wanda’s reactions we can also say that Carrot could not possibly be the traitor. The monkey’s reaction in the other hand is a big concern, the fact that he tried to defend carrot and how he brought up betrayal in the first place means there must have been a traitor from Zou, and he most likely is the reason that traitor has a vivre card due to hi super innocent nature to the point that he’s stupid.
But if it’s not Carrot, Pekoms, or Bepo… Who could it be?
Are there any other Minks outside of Zou besides these three?
The answer is yes.
In Hawkins’ crew, there is a cat Mink that may just fit the bill. During Kaidou’s landing, what’s interesting to note is how the cat Mink is the only one FACING the hole while jumping backwards to avoid the shockwave… While we could just chalk that up to cats being agile, it does not explain why he was facing the direction of the hole. It’s almost like he knew something was coming, and his captain being Hawkins… You can see which direction I’m taking this.
Instead of trading in slaves, he is trading his and his crews’ abilities and relationships to Kaidou in order to survive in the new world. Due to everything that has occurred and his reactions during Kaidou’s arrival, as well as the events in Zou, I have concluded that this is the most likely scenario!
Being a part of Kaidou’s crew by being in ties with his cousin X-Drake, he was required to show Kaidou how he could be of use, and thus gave Jack information on Zou via his Mink crewmate. Getting called in by Killer to join in an alliance with Kidd, he used his abilities to read into the future with his cards to know that the alliance would bear fruit, feeding more intel and systematically destroying one of the most stubborn competitors to the throne: Kidd.
Due to Killer’s intelligent nature, Hawkins perhaps sought his Alliance but not Kidd’s, informing him of what will occur. Apoo, being a coward, gave in to Kaidou due to his overwhelming strength in hopes that it will protect him for the time being. This will explain why Hawkins, Apoo, and Killer are not in the cell with Kidd. It was all in the cards, as predicted by Hawkins and everything fell into place.
I understand I do not have any evidence other than the real life counterparts for X-Drake and Hawkins being cousins but I do believe this theory is plausible.

As an entity, the Yonko are one of the Three Great Powers of the world, the others being the Shichibukai and Marines.
Individually, the Yonko are considered to be the most powerful pirates in the world, as well as having a powerful crew. Because of their power, they can declare chosen locations as their own; the mere declaration is often enough for others, both Marines and pirates alike, to acknowledge their authority.
The 4 Emperors individually reside within the second half of the Grand Line (known as the “New World”), exerting impressive influence and control over dozens of other pirate crews and self-governing islands.
The Yonko themselves are not allied together as a coalition compared to the Shichibukai and follow their own individual paths. The possibility of two or more of the Yonko forming an alliance is enough of a threat to cause the World Government to panic, as seen when the World Government attempted unsuccessfully to prevent a meeting between Shanks and Whitebeard at one point in the series.
Because of their immense power, it is necessary for factions aiming to oppose them to first strike an alliance with other factions in order to bring the Yonko down. However, even with multiple alliances amongst powerful pirates, the chances of defeating a Yonko are still extremely low.
The Yonko Charlotte Linlin and Kaido both have a single Road Poneglyph that can, with all four Road Poneglyphs deciphered, lead to Raftel’s location.
All of the Eleven Supernovas are known to be involved with at least one Yonko:

The theme of Mariejois is like Olympus in Greek mythology because they are both located in high altitude place and has a gigantic palace which is built on top of the mountain. (Mariejois built on top of the Red Line.)
Olympus is the home of divine family and ruling gods and Mariejois is the home of Celestial Dragons which we can say the divine family in OP and Gorosei the so called gods.
The pattern or theme of Mariejois is Olympus so we might see a character which is conceptualize and inspired by the king of gods in Olympia. Who’s the king of gods and ruler of Olympus?
In ancient Greece Zeus is the king of gods, god of sky and ruler of Olympus, he is the strongest god in Olympus and no one can oppose him nor fight him because of his great power.
A character inspired by Zeus is very possible because there are gods in One Piece and maybe that strongest god will be the final villain that Strawhats will going to face in the final war against Marines, World Government, Celestial Dragons and Gorosei in the Mariejois.
Remember what Oda said before that the Marineford war will gonna look like nothing in the final chapter that’s why he’s motivated to keep drawing One Piece and he likes his fans to stick with him til the end.
Luffy’s Grand Fleet and maybe other pirates or all pirates and Revos will join Strawhats in the huge war against World Government, Marines, Celestial Dragon and Gods in Mariejois, this is great to see as the last chapter of One Piece!
Mariejois is the greatest place for the final war because remember the impact, excitement and insanity that we felt when Whitebeard Pirates attacked the based of marines in Marineford and started the summit war, what more if we see the Strawhats and his allied forces attack the Marines, World Government, Gorosei and Celestial Dragons in Mariejois and start the final great war. It will definitely give us more excitement, goose bumps and emotions because many pirates and marines will die in this war.

Suddenly, Kaido landed on their base and the three found themselves face-to-face with him.
While it is unknown what happened between them, it appears that they formed an alliance with Kaido as Scratchmen informed him about Jack’s fate.
However, Kid was badly beaten and imprisoned by the Yonko and his crew.
The status of Hawkins and fellow Worst Generation member Killer are currently unknown.

The Kid Pirates are an infamous and notable rookie pirate crew led by Eustass Kid.
The most significant aspect of their appearance is that most, if not all of the Kid Pirates have heavy metalesque appearances. Also, many of them seem to wear leather in one way or another. There are 4 named members in the crew: Eustass Kid, Killer, Heat, and Wire.
They are most known for dealing major destruction and civilian casualties along their route through the Grand Line and towards the New World. Furthermore, the entire crew easily survived the blast of Haki released by Silvers Rayleigh, a testament to their overall strength. In spite of their great potency in battle and overall level-mindedness, the members of this crew display an inate sense of haughtiness. They have also formed an alliance with the Hawkins and On Air Pirates.
Their ship continues the theme of heavy metal, with a bizarre skull as part of the deck, resembling some heavy metal bands’ stages. Their ship was coated with the Yarukiman resin, allowing it to submerge underwater by reducing its buoyancy, and withstanding the water pressure of 10,000 feet.
The ship in full sight:
The Kid Pirates’ flag represent the usual grinning skull having Kid’s hairstyle and wearing the latter’s square shaped goggles on its forehead. In the background there is the traditional cross-bone pattern plus what seems to represent two knives forming a cross as well. Moreover, on each sides of the skull there are flame-like patterns.

Hello everyone ! I will show you a rather small theory today and it concerns Kaido’s death.
I don’t think I have to explain this fact right ? We all know that Kaido is looking for a way to kill himself and so it’s seems logical that before the end of One Piece he will reach his goal somehow. Watch Kaido’s first introduction :
I mean we haven’t seen the guy yet and Oda is already telling us that he wants to die ! How many manga can introduce this kind of character .
Anyway, now that it’s clear for everyone, let’s continue.
With the recent revelation of the 824th chapter, I just thought about a character that will help or find a way to kill Kaido. I’m talking about this guy :We don’t know what happened to Hawkins after the Kidd – Hawkins – Apoo alliance met Kaido. But we can already tell that Kidd refused to go under Kaido’s order so he ended up half-dead in a cage. We can already assume that Apoo betrayed the alliance and is now a part of Kaido’s crew. But what about Hawkins ?
I mean is it a coincidence that in one side we have a Yonko who is supposed immortal and is looking for a way to die and in the other side, we have a fortune teller that can see “the shadow of death” upon someone ? I’m sure that Oda has something in store for these two characters.
I won’t try to guess what will happen exactly, Oda’s imagination is not in my league anyway . But I’m telling you this guys, I’m sure Hawkins prediction will have a huge impact on Kaido’s death.
That’s it guys, as I said it was quite short but I wanted to talk about this cause I haven’t seen anyone talking about Hawkins recently .
Tell me what you think about it !
