Progression of Time in One Piece

Myth: It has been a year since the story began.

Fact: There is no indication of how long the storyline has taken. Few clues aid the fans at all.

From witnessing the story play out;

  1. Luffy’s first few adventures in the East Blue happened within a few weeks. The only time night was witnessed however were during the captain Kuro story arc and at the end of the Arlong story arc. They therefore spent at least one day at Usopp’s village.
  2. Luffy worked for two days in Baratie before the arrival of Don Krieg’s Pirate Armada.
  3. They spent several days partying in Nami’s village after it was freed from Arlong.
  4. No night scenes were witnessed during Loguetown, it is presumed Loguetown was a quick stop for them due to the conflict with Smoker.
  5. Whiskey Peak was at least one night, they were there less than a day.
  6. They were at Little Garden for only a day (no night scenes were witnessed).
  7. From Little Garden to Drum Island it was less than five days (Nami would have died from her illness of Kestia if it had been any longer).
  8. There was a night scene at Drum Island, but they were there no more than two or so days.
  9. They met Ace within ten days of him visiting Drum Island because he had left Drum Island only a week beforehand and he was still in Alabasta when they arrived. He was only going to wait ten days for Luffy.
  10. In all, they spent less than a week or so in Alabasta before moving on.
  11. They were in Jaya less than four days, the time taken before their Log Pose would have adjusted, however they left close to its change.
  12. A close examination of Skypiea will show that it lasted two days (Entering the white sea to the campfire in Upper Yard was one day, and then the Survival Game to waking up the next morning after the party was another).
  13. No night scenes were seen in the Davy Back Fight matches. It is presumed the events took place in less than a day.
  14. They stayed in Long Ring Long Land for 4 days after Aokiji’s attack to let Luffy and Robin rest.
  15. They traveled for another 3 days before coming across Yokozuna.
  16. Including the events of Enies Lobby, the crew had stopped at Water 7 for a week.
  17. Thriller Bark was less than a day, a day max.
  18. There was a week between leaving Thriller Bark and arriving at the Red Line.
  19. They were in Sabaody Archipelago for less than a day.
  20. A full two days had visibly passed over the time Luffy was on his way to Amazon Lily.
  21. Four and a half days had passed during the journey from Amazon Lily to Impel Down via Marine ship.
  22. At least 30 hours passed while Luffy was in Impel Down.
  23. Three weeks passed from the end of the “War at the Summit” at Marineford to Luffy ringing the Ox Bell.
  24. Two years passed during the timeskip.
  25. They travelled straight to Fishman Island in what was depicted as less than a few hours after reuniting, and stayed there for less than a day, a day max.
  26. They travelled straight from Fishman Island to Punk Hazard in what was depicted as less than a few hours.
  27. They spent less than a day on Punk Hazard before leaving for Dressrosa.
  28. They spent four days on Dressrosa before leaving for Zou.
  29. A week passed before they reached Zou.
  30. They spent a day on Zou before Luffy’s group went to Whole Cake Island and the others went to Wano Country.


    In chapter 818 we received a lot of information about Raftel or rather how to get there.
    One of the most important panels though is this one where Inuarashi subtly confirms what many people have thought that the Ancient Kingdom is in fact Raftel.

    He doesn’t say a specific number but only “for centuries”. However we actually know when was the last time someone was there.

    It was 8 centuries ago. Yes, 800 years ago when the World Government came to existence.

    Before his death professor Clover was just about to say the name of the Ancient Kingdom and we believe the name was ”Raftel”. But since this happened 3 years after Gol D. Roger’s execution, during the Great Age of Pirates, Gorosei didn’t want any more information to be revealed and they ordered to shoot him quickly before he could have done any more harm.

    Also when we were shown the image of the Ancient Kingdom it looked like the eastern side could actually be the image of Raftel Crocus and later on Inuarashi “showed” us.

    However how come that World Government themselves didn’t destroy Raftel and didn’t claim One Piece after Gol D. Roger’s execution to stop the Great Age of Pirates? Since they knew where Raftel was 800 years ago. Did they lost the information about Raftel’s position? We don’t think so. Since Gorosei know about the history it’s hard to believe they wouldn’t know where Raftel was.

    The reason why World Government couldn’t do it is because Raftel is not where it once was.

    And the reason for it lies in its name “Raftel”.

    Raftel is formed by using two words: Raft meaning something used as a boat or floating platform and El which is a nickname for elevated railway system.

    We believe that Raftel, once prosperous and enormous kingdom had such an advanced technology that they were able to relocate their island to another, safer place where enemies couldn’t reach them.

    And that place was, as we learned from Inurarashi, between 4 islands.

    However since it’s supposed to be an enormous kingdom how come someone just can’t be lucky and get there by using Log Pose? Well we know from Law that Punk Hazard can not be located by using one so this can be somehow avoided but most importantly since Raftel is able to float on the water it’s impossible for it to have magnetic field.

    We think that this ancient civilization didn’t choose this spot between 4 islands randomly.

    And this is when Nami and her knowledge comes to play. They chose this spot because those 4 islands were 4 different types of islands. Meaning they all had different weather.


    It was: Summer Island, Fall Island, Winter Island and finally Spring Island.

    We know that each island in Grand Line has its own climate and we believe that this is also one of the reasons Raftel can not be found even by a mistake.

    In every picture that Raftel has been shown so far we can see it being sorrounded by fog, mist and haze. This is probably the result of moving Raftel with it’s own climate to the spot between other 4 islands.

    Raftel disrupted those hot, windy, humid and cold climates which created its natural protection.

    It’s even possible those extreme weather conditions created mirage or an illusion rather that there is no island even though there is supposed to be one. Similar to the Mirage Tempo technique which Nami uses to project an image which isn’t real

    or she can even make her image completly disappear and make herself invisible.

    However Nami will be able to figure this out since she is familiar with this phenomenon and will realize what’s happening.

    So thanks to her the Straw Hat pirates will finally be able to get to Raftel

    where awaits the legendary treasure ONE PIECE!

    If you would rather watch the video version of this theory then here it is:

    *Theory by Manga Detectives

      Here are the Biggest Unsolved Mysteries in One Piece

      #15-Who is “Joy Boy”?

      “Joy Boy” was a man from the surface world who played an important role in the history of Fishman Island. He was first mentioned on the Ryugu Poneglyph read by Nico Robin while at the Sea Forest

      #14-How powerful are the Gorosei?

      The Gorosei (literally meaning “Five Elder Stars”) are the heads of the World Government, and as such, they essentially rule the entire world. They are the five men who rule above the Marines, Cipher Pol, and the ones who made a pact with the Shichibukai. So far, none of their names have been revealed.

      #13-How did Blackbeard acquire multiple devil powers?

      #12-Who are Sanji’s parents and two older brothers of the Vinsmoke family?

      #11-How do Devil Fruits work? Where do they come from?

      #10-What is The Revolutionary Army’s goal?

      #9-Florian Triangle

      The Florian Triangle, (literally translated as Zone of Demonic Triangle) is a stretch of sea that one has to cross over when heading from Water 7 to Fishman Island. It is covered in a fog so thick that it blocks out all sunlight. According to Kokoro, many pirate and commercial ships mysteriously go missing every year and, sometimes, a ship will be found sailing without any people aboard. It has also been said that there are many haunted ships with dead bodies sailing across the sea

      #8-What’s Dragon’s Ability?

      He is the infamous Revolutionary leader who has been attempting to overthrow the World Government. He is the World Government’s greatest enemy and is the most dangerous and most wanted man in the world.

      #7-All Blue

      The All Blue is a mystical sea of legend, rumored to be the only place in the world where the North, South, East, and West seas meet. In this legendary ocean, it is said that there are fish from each of the four seas, and to have such a resource at one’s disposal is the ultimate dream of every chef. Sanji strives to find this ocean of dreams. It is said that All Blue is found in the Grand Line.

      #6-Who’s Luffy’s mom and is she alive?

      #5-Where and what is Uranus? Where are the parts of Pluton? What is Pluton? What do the Ancient Weapons look like and what do they do? What is the connection between the Ancient Weapons and the Void Century?

      #4-What Happened during the Void Century?

      The Void Century is a century-long gap in recorded and archaeological history, the study of which is forbidden by the World Government. These events occurred 800 to 900 years before the current storyline. It was hinted at during the Skypiea arc; the dates were seen in Robin’s flashback.

      #3-Voice of all Things

      The voice of all things is mysterious and still unspecified phenomenon in the world of One Piece. It was first mentioned by Silvers Rayleigh when he revealed that Gol D. Roger had the ability to hear it.

      #2-What does “The Will of D” means?

      In the series, a number of characters have the middle initial “D.”. This mysterious middle initial has been called the “Will of D” or “D’s will” by several characters in One Piece.

      #1-ONE PIECE

      One Piece is a legendary treasure said to be of unimaginable value.

      It is said that it was hidden somewhere deep in the Grand Line, presumably in the last island, Raftel, by its deceased owner, the Pirate King Gol D. Roger.

      So what is “One Piece”?

        Kaido’s Immortality

        Whitebeard and Kaido-The Sentencer and the Sentenced

        When we were first introduced to Kaido and his inability to die, many theories were created as to what his power might be. What keeps him from dying?

        I remember reading people’s comments such as “he should just jump into the ocean” or “he should just eat more than one devil fruit.” And while at first I thought the fact that Kaido hadn’t tried either of these things was due more to plot convenience than anything else. But then another thought occurred to me: What if Kaido had already tried these things during his life?

        Let’s talk about some things that we already know about Kaido that will be important to this theory:
        1. Kaido murdered Moria’s entire crew as well as Momo’s parents
        2. Kaido attempted to take on Whitebeard right before the Whitebeard war
        3. Kaido has been given the death sentence repeatedly for his crimes

        These points are important because they tell us that:
        1. Kaido brazenly murders
        2. Kaido had some reason to attack Whitebeard
        3. Kaido has committed atrocities that many deem punishable by death

        And now about Whitebeard:
        1. According to Buggy, no one messes with the Whitebeard pirates for fear of angering Whitebeard
        2. The other Yonko didn’t dare cross him, even in his old age and sickness
        3. Whitebeard’s second division commander slot had been open for ages before Ace filled it

        These points are important because they tell us that:
        1. At some point, Whitebeard showed the world what happens to those who mess with the Whitebeard pirates
        2. The Yonko wouldn’t cross Whitebeard due to more than just his reputation
        3. Whitebeard had reservations about filling an empty slot in his crew, possibly due to pain of loss

        And now, Kaido’s first words:

        Many fans including me at first simply dismissed this statement as “Whitebeard did a good job by dying.” But many people in One Piece have died, why did Oda decide to have Kaido specifically chose to mention Whitebeard here?

        Do you see where I’m going with this? I believe the story goes like this:

        Kaido was a young, incredibly dangerous pirate who had dreams of claiming One Piece, and was making a reputation for himself at an alarming rate to the World Government. He made his name well known throughout the new world for his strength and brutality, through feats such ascrushing and murdering Gekko Moria’s entire crew. At some point, Kaido became cocky and decided to make a move for the One Piece, but of course, he would have to go through the King of the Sea, Whitebeard. Kaido made his first move by crushing Whitebeard’s second division and killing the second division commander. Enraged, Whitebeard unleashed his full wrath on Kaido and defeated him. It was a brutal battle that left both Whitebeard and Kaido permanently scarred, and in a final act of revenge, Whitebeard used his abilities as a Speaker of the Voice to sentence Kaido to an undying existence, and then cast him into the sea. As Kaido possessed a devil fruit, he was doomed to drown helplessly for eternity, without dying. The world was shocked and awed by the true wrath of Whitebeard, who had just crushed the strong young pirate for murdering a member of his crew. Kaido drifted at the bottom of the sea for months or even years before he was finally brought back up to shore by some person or some sea king (for whatever reason lol). Back to the surface, Kaido was delusioned and angry by his months/years of suffering and was left with suicidal tendencies. The world was terrified by the man who they all thought had been killed by Whitebeard making a reappearance (possibly by sinking prison ships). When Kaido was convinced that he could not die, he began to amass his power in the form of eating multiple Zoan-type devil fruits and gaining their abilities, earning him the name of Hundred Beasts Kaido, the man with many Zoan forms. Kaido never forgave Whitebeard for the curse that he placed upon him, and for this reason continuously had fits of rage towards Whitebeard,even attempting to take Whitebeard’s life before Marineford. With Whitebeard dead, Kaido was left with his undying body, and his dreams of claiming One Piece once reaffirmed.

        I believe this would explain Kaido’s suicidal tendencies, why he actually hasn’t died from eating multiple devil fruits/drowning, the pirates of the worlds’ acknowledgement of Whitebeard even in old age, the fact that the Yonko dared not cross him, and even why in his old, sickened state that Whitebeard was still viewed as the strongest pirate on the sea, as he was a Speaker of the Voice.

        But where did this ability come from? What is its overall purpose in the story?

        *Theory by Saving Ace

          Any thoughts?

          Chapter 631 shows Crocus and a guy wearing a Samurai or Japanese clothes which it seems related to Wano Kingdom. Since we all know by now that lord Kozuki Oden( Momonouske’s father) was part of the pirates king crew, could this be him shown in this cover? What do you guys think?


            Its pretty well known that Oda is referring to feudal Japan with Wano. Shogun was a military dictator in Japan during the period from 1192 to 1867. A number of Daimyos used to work under the Shogun. Daimyo were the most powerful feudal rulers during that period.

            1192-1867 is long period and the rank of Shogun and Daimyo varied a lot between those period. But I have a few reasons to believe that Oda is referring to Edo/Tokugawa (1683-1868) period here.

            The first clue is the closed door policy. As Brook is saying in this panel, “The Wano country is a sealed-off nation whose people do not take kindly to the outsiders

            Now lets take a look at Edo history. Tokugawa Iemitsu, the 3rd Shogun during Tokugawa regime, enacted the Sakoku edict back in 1633. The key point of the Sakoku edict was:

            “The Japanese were to be kept within Japan’s own boundaries. Strict rules were set to prevent them from leaving the country, and if any such attempt was made, they would face penalty of death. Europeans that entered Japan illegally would face the death penalty as well.”

            Fits perfectly with Oda’s description of Wano, right?

            Secondly, Women are treated inferior to men in Wano.
            Kinemon, “A woman’s place is to stand demurely in the menfolk’s shadow and speak with reserve and modesty”

            Now lets look back at Edo period. Women in the Edo Period had a lower status and possessed fewer rights compared to men to a certain extent. Women also lost economical and political rights due to the Tokugawa law. Women could not own property, and a women’s husband was entitled to kill his wife for being lazy or bad, in the circumstances of household chores or how she presented herself as a faithful wife and obedient mother.

            Thirdly, The chongmage.

            The chongmage and topknot hairstyle was there even before Edo period. But its mostly associated with the Edo period and samurai.

            So everything indicates that Oda is referring to Edo period (1603-1808) and I will speculate a few things based on history.

            1. Shogun is based on Tokugawa Iemitsu:
            As mentioned earlier, the controversial Sakoku edict was enacted during Iemitsu’s period. Iemitsu ruled from 1623 to 1651, and during this period he crucified Christians, expelled all Europeans from Japan and closed the borders of the country, a foreign politics policy that continued for over 200 years after its institution.
            He had every quality to be an antagonist if you ask me :cool:

            2. Shogun and Oden are brothers?:
            This one is most likely going to be proven false very soon but if the Shogun is based on Iemitsu, it has some chance to be true.
            Tokugawa Tadanaga was the younger brother of Iemitsu. Because of his good heart, military and intellectual prowess, he was favored by his mother over Iemitsu as the 3rd Shogun. However, Iemitsu forced him to commit suicide just after the death of their father.
            Oden was also forced to commit seppuku by the hands of shogun and Kaido?

            3. Zoro will represent Yagyu Jubei
            One of the most famous and romanticized swordsman of Japanese history was Yagyu Jubei. During Iemitsu’s reign, Jubei was probably the best samurai of the famous Yagyu clan.
            There is a legend that Jubei could use only one eye, he lost his other eye during a sparring session with his father.
            An one eyed swordsman, sounds familiar?

            4. Zoro will kill the Shogun
            Jubei’s father contributed significantly for the first and second shognate and therefore was granted a minor daimyo status. He was the teacher and a father like figure of the 3rd shognate Iemitsu. Jubei also served under Iemitsu.
            So how does everything fit in?
            In the famous film Shogun’s Samurai (1978) that was later broadcasted as a TV series called the Yagyu conspiracy (1978 – 1979), Iemitsu is killed and decapitated by the Jubei in an act of revenge.

            A famous dialogue of the TV series which was later paraphrased by Kill Bill,

            “If you want revenge, you have to be willing to kill God and even the Buddha”

            Sounds like a dialogue made for Zoro! :cool:

            5. Strawhat fleet of 4 ships:
            Many isolated attempts to end Japan’s closed door policy were made by Western powers during 17th – 19th centuries. In 1853, Commodore Matthew Perry of the US navy threatened Japan with four warships, Mississipi, Plymouth, Saratoga and Susquehanna. He forced Japan to open to trade with the West and end the Sakoku edict finally. These ships became known as the kurofune, the Black Ships.

            Luffy, like Matthew Perry, will also attack Wano with 4 ships, (1) Thousand Sunny, (2) Law’s ship, (3) Mink’s ship and (4) a samurai ship and liberate Wano from the shogun!

            *Theory by Nidai_Kitetsu


              I think its possible we just found out the identity and powers of Uranus.

              Currently, we really only know the specifics of one Ancient Weapon, Poseidon a.k.a Shirahoshi.

              Her power is that she is able to control the sea kings, who seem honor bound to fulfill her wishes, whatever they may be.

              This last chapter we have seen something remarkable similar. Yes, I am talking about Zunisha not being able to defend herself without direct orders from Momonosuke.

              Zunisha received an order from long ago to walk the world for eternity, and she is unable to break this command without a second order from someone specific.

              This specific person isn’t just someone that can hear the VOAT, as we are told that Luffy can’t give her that order. This is also true for Gold Roger and Oden Kouzuki.

              The person who can is…. Momonosuke. This is eerily similar to what Shirahoshi can do, and her power was remarked upon as an Ancient Weapon capable of destroying the world.

              Do you think Momo power could destroy the world? I think so. Zunisha just one shotted Jack, and her size alone could crush islands.

              I also think Momo’s power will be able to extend to creatures other than Zunisha as well. I doubt he could only control one elephant.

              I wonder if the order that Zunisha received long ago was given by the Uranus of the void century, and Momo, like Shirahoshi, has been born with the power of an Ancient Weapon that often skips many generations. Which is to say, Momonosuke has been born the king of the land animals, just as Shirahoshi is the true king of the sea.

              Although I can’t yet see the ties between Momo’s power and that of a sky god, his power is next level shit and completely overpowered.

              Let me know what you think.

              *Theory by Joy_Boy


                Ths is a theory on Zunisha, its inspiration and its relationship to Momonosuke

                Zunisha is an enormous elephant that wanders the New World and carries the island of Zou on its back

                Zunisha has a commensal relationship with the Mink Tribe and the island of Zou, because at least two times a day it showers itself with seawater. This helps the minks acquire fish for food, so it is considered a blessing. The Mink Tribe has built aqueduct systems to divert the flooding. When Jack and his fleet were attacking it, Zunisha expressed concern for the minks, worrying they would die if it were to fall into the sea. Zunisha begged Kozuki Momonosuke to allow it to fight before Jack could bring it down.


                Those who can speak to Zunisha can also see through its eyes, giving them a great range of detailed vision

                However, due to having lived for so long, it is not very durable, so its weak and aged skin can be heavily damaged by concentrated cannonfire


                Inspiration for Zunisha is Airavata king of all elephants

                Airavata is a mythological white elephant who carries the Hindu god Indra. It is also called ‘abhra-Matanga’, meaning “elephant of the clouds”; ‘Naga-malla’, meaning “the fighting elephant”; and ‘Arkasodara’, meaning “brother of the sun“

                One of his names means “the one who knits or binds the clouds” since myth has it that these elephants are capable of producing clouds. The connection of elephants with water and rain is emphasized in the mythology of Indra



                This mighty elephant reaches down his trunk into the watery underworld, sucks up its water, and then sprays it into the clouds, which Indra then causes to rain forth cool water, thereby linking the waters of the sky with those of the underworld.

                Ancient Kings and There Beasts
                In Ancient age per-dates void century Kings and queens had creatures who there partners these creatures were protectors of kingdom and worshiped as divine creatures

                1.Mermaid Princess and Sea Kings


                While merfolk can summon and communicate with normal fish and marine life via sonar waves, Shirahoshi has the uncanny ability to call sea kings via the same method, which according to Vander Decken IX, was the ability of a legendary Mermaid Princess. By screaming, she emits sonar waves that summon the sea kings to her. While she was unaware of her power during her childhood, Otohime thought that if she receives a huge shock, she might subconsciously send sea kings on a giant rampage

                While Luffy was destroying Noah to keep it from crashing into Fishman Island, Shirahoshi once again unknowingly summoned the Sea Kings to help save both the ship and the island. The Sea Kings stated that they were called by Shirahoshi’s desire to help Luffy. It appears that Shirahoshi can summon them through her will and feelings even though she wasn’t directly calling for them

                2.Shandora and Ancient Python(Kashigami)

                Shandians used to worship and offer sacrifice to Kashigami



                Now Nola is a giant snake that lives with the Shandia in Jaya before and after the island got knocked into the sky by the Knock Up Stream.

                Nola is the second oldest living creature in One Piece, being more than 400 years old. The longest living creature is Zunisha, the elephant carrying the island of Zou

                Kashigami was partner of Ancient kings of Shandia and regarded as divine protector of Shandia




                Her foreboding and fearsome stance has earned her the title of “Master of the Sky”

                As you can see by now most of allies of Anicent kingdom of D had these creatures associated with them

                Luffy as we know inspired from Sun Wukong king of beasts

                Luffy has already tamed beasts from Rusukaina and has ability to hear voice of all things in order to befriend other animals he has already tamed kraken


                Zunisha and Kouzuki clan

                Before void century Kozuki clan were rulers of Wano and Zunisha was originally a war elephant who served under king/shogun who must have a special haki(Voice of all things) to have control over it

                The reason Luffy asked Momo to converse with Zunisha is he understood those words were meant for rightful owner/master of Zunisha which was Momo

                Zunisha’s crime

                Now this part is pure speculation me taking a shot in dark so bear with me
                Zunisha was present and fought during void century war as Wano Kuni allied with Ancient kingdom of D
                After the battle Ancient kingdom anticipated their loss and retreated back
                Kozuki clan’s leader was targeted in war but shogun and leader of Kozuki clan didn’t want anymore blood shed in order to protect his master Zunisha attacked the army which was insubordination of its master’s order
                Master of Zunisha ordered him to not ever fight again unless it was a direct order under a rightful master

                Hope u like it

                *Theory by D kar

                  Any Thoughts?

                  It is said that “Zou” commited a crime in the past. It was sentenced to walk for all eternity till the end of time. Who was the one who gave that sentence to Zou? Is it Joyboy? Are the people who can hear “the voice” related to “this person” somehow? What do you think?

                    ZOU FATALITY! o.O
