Hello once again everyone and welcome back to yet another theory for your entertainment. This time I shall be discussing the crew structure of Big Mom and her daughters.
Oda himself has admitted that his drawings got alot of inspiration from Disney and he obviously has characters that are inspired from Disney.
Big Mom has 3 Disney inspirations(that relates to this theory).
Ursula from the Little Mermaid.
Ursula made a deal with Poseidon(WB), is a witch(Big Mom has alot of witch references), tried taking over Atlantis(Big Mom owns Fishman Island) and had an arranged marriage to do so.
The Evil Queen from Snow White.
The Evil Queen was jealous of her step daughter Snow White being the fairest in the land so she plotted to kill her using witchcraft. She was stopped by the 7 dwarfs and the prince.
The Evil Step Mother from Cinderella
The evil step mother was very harsh to Cinderella and wanted her real daughters to marry the prince and become rich. In the real story, the step mother made her daughters cut off parts of their feet so that the glass slipper would fit them.
Its also good to note that Cinderella was inspired by former Queen of France Marie Antoinette, who is famous for the line “Let Them Eat Cake”(and running France into the ground starting the French Revolution).
Step Mothers suck.
Big Mom loves her real daughters.
Big Mom only views her step daughters as tools for political power.
This could be why Pudding doesn’t look so happy with her wedding and Lola why goes out of her way to find spouse.
It is thanks to her step daughters and political marriages that Big Mom has more influence and reach than any yonkou.
In case you are like…”Huh??” with Sugar & Monet…
Monet’s name comes from the FRENCH painter Claude Monet. Monet is also based off a harpy from Greek Mythology. Angry that Phineus gave away the god’s secret plan, Zeus punished him by blinding him and putting him on an island with a buffet of food which he could never eat because the harpies always arrived to steal the food out of his hands before he could satisfy his hunger, and befouled the remains of his food.
Lastly, curious about this?
In Japanese folklore, it is believed that rabbits live on the moon making rice cakes. In Chinese folklore, the hare is white and makes the elixir of immortality. It represents self-sacrifice and fought Sun Wukong the Monkey King.
Sugar’s name is well…..sugar…….she is also based off Amelie Poulin from the French & German movie Amelie. Amélie Poulain was raised by eccentric parents who – erroneously believing that she had a heart defect – decided to home school her. To cope with her loneliness, Amélie developed an active imagination and a mischievous personality.
Already spoke too much about Big Mom being French in past theories….not doing it again…..
Big Mom’s ship has a crown which is another hint to Big Mom being a queen.
Big Mom’s crew also has a mafia theme.
The leader of a mafia is called Mr. Big or Father. Charlotte Linlin is known as Big Mom and Mama.
Capone himself referred to Big Mom as his boss.
Big Mom’s act of sending ‘presents’ to her victims is a common mafia punishment.
A mafia is also called a FAMILY(hence why the mafia leader can be called ‘Father’). Mafia families and alliances are extremely common in the criminal world so the Charlotte Family could be royalty, purely a mafia family or both.
To add more to the mafia boss and evil queen, Big Mom rules her crew with fear.
Hell, she even eats her crew mates alive…..

Recently I found myself thinking about the grand scheme of One Piece and the future of the series. What follows is the result of canceled college classes, procrastination, and hard thought about the future of One Piece.
I was recently reminded of something that was told to us early in the series:
When we are given our first hints as to the nature of devil fruits, Shanks mentions a “Sea-Devil” and says that he heard that devil fruits are its incarnations. Many people (including myself) had long since forgotten this and dismissed it as simply One Piece legend. Let’s hold on to this idea because we will revisit it later, and for now, let’s set up my predictions:
Recently in Chapter 821, the series takes an interesting turn when we find out that Luffy is not the only person alive right now with the ability to hear the voice of all things, and that Momonosuke (of all people) can hear the voice as well.
I didn’t quite grasp the significance of Chapter 821 at first, but I believe the chapter is the first chapter in which we will truly begin to understand the nature of the voice of all things.
The Voice of all things is probably the most mysterious ability in the world of One Piece. It has yet to be fully explained to us, and we have no idea where the ability came from or why it even exists. Every time we learn something new about the ability, we are left with even more questions.
Let’s take a look at Rayleigh when he first mentions Roger’s ability to hear the voice:
Up until recently, the only people in the series that were confirmed to be able to hear the voice were Roger and Luffy. At the time this ability was revealed, it was the rarest (non-devil fruit) ability in the One Piece world, even more rare than Conqueror’s haki. Yet, in this panel, Rayleigh mentions the ability without explaining it at all, as if the ability were well known throughout the One Piece world, or at least the grand line. Additionally, none of the straw hats saw fit to question him about it.
Some might view this as Oda simply withholding information from us, but this particular part of the Shabondy Arc was heavy with story reveals, we were even given some hints to the Void Century as well as Raftel itself. If Oda were going to explain this rare ability to us, wouldn’t this have been the appropriate time?
I believe that the reason that Rayleigh did not explain the ability is that there are many people on the grand line with the ability to hear the voice of all things. On top of this, we recently learned that there are different “types” of the ability. In chapter 821 we learned that not only are there those who can hear the voice, but those who can speak it as well:
I believe Momonosuke is a part of a special group of people that I will call “the Speakers of the Voice.” Momonosuke was able to command Zunisha to defend itself, something that Luffy, Roger, and Oden were not able to do.
Why wasn’t Luffy able to command Zunisha? Why wasn’t Roger able to command Zunisha? Most importantly, why wasn’t Oden, Momo’s father, able to command Zunisha either? The answer for now will remain unanswered to us, but what we CAN say is that there are those who can hear the voice, and those who can speak to it as well, and Momonosuke seems to be one of the Speakers of the Voice.
Speaking of Momonosuke, his relationship to the voice is incredibly strange. He was not able to “read” the Road Poneglyph like Roger was, but he was capable of commanding a 1,000 year old elephant to do his bidding. From this, we can gather that not only are there different types of the ability, but there are people who are only capable of hearing or speaking to certain voices. Momonosuke could hear the elephant, but could not “hear” the Poneglyph’s contents. Even Luffy himself can not yet “hear” the Poneglyph’s contents, but he was perfectly capable of hearing Zunisha’s cries as well as the Sea Kings at Fishman Island. Shirahoshi/Poseidon might also be a type of Speaker of the Voice, a bloodline that can command or even sentence Sea Kings. This tells us that just because you can hear or speak to the voice of one certain thing does not mean you can hear or speak to the voice of something else. While people like Luffy might not be able to speak to Zunisha, Luffy might be a kind of speaker that can speak to something else. But what exactly? Let’s put this thought on hold for now.
So far, we have learned of those who can hear the voice as well as those who can command certain things or beings through the voice. However, there is a third type of speaker, a powerful type of commander that can sentence. So far, we have seen one confirmed example of this:
Zo was sentenced to walk for all eternity. By whom? We’ll get back to that thought in a bit. For now, I want to talk Whitebeard and Kaido, whom I believe are the first examples of sentencing that we have seen in the series.
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 as crushing 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?
Before I get into the meat of this section, I want to talk for a brief moment about the geography of the One Piece world:
We all know the layout of the One Piece world, a grand line surrounded by two calm belts and four blues. We also know that the grand line is brutally difficult to navigate, and the weather and ocean patterns are far from natural. Keep this in mind. Now that that’s out of the way:
DISCLAIMER: This next section is fairly far fetched.
There is so little information on this “Sea Devil.” The only time we have ever heard of him was during Shanks’ conversation with Buggy at the beginning of the series. Therefore, it’s difficult to really say who he is or where he comes from. So for the sake of continuing onward, let’s just refer to the Sea Devil as a “god”, or more specifically, the creator of the world of One Piece.
I believe that this god created the One Piece world using his natural power as THE Speaker of the Voice of all Things. Whereas every other being in the future’s abilities at speaking the voice would be somewhat limited, the god was able to use the voice with no restrictions, and used it to create the entire One Piece world alongside “children” to worship him. The god, however, did not create water (this will be important for later).
The people were not completely submissive to his will at first, so 1,000 years ago, he displayed his frightening power by sentencing the strongest being in his creation, the first to deny him, to walk for all eternity (Zunisha). Witnessing this power, the people of the world were left to tremble before him. Over the next 100 years, the god grew satisfied with the people’s worship of him. Out of arrogance, the god even gave people his Fruits, which gave people one of his many powers.
There were those, however, who were not satisfied with living under the tyranny of the god, believing him to actually be a Devil, and realized that they could use his power themselves:
They formed a society that devoted themselves to finding their own purpose without the intervention of any god. They began to study reality and science in secret, and eventually formed an extremely advanced society of people who were able to speak the Voice. Using their scientific advancement, they created the oceans as places that the devil could not go as a way of challenging his power. They formed their kingdom on an island in the middle of the ocean, where the god could not reach them-the Ancient Kingdom. The founders of the Kingdom even gave themselves the initial D. as an act of mockery to the god, proclaiming him as a devil and identifying themselves as his “direct descendants” or “children of the Devil” as they were able to Speak with his Voice. (It’s important to note that the family of D. were not the only ones who could speak the voice, the other members of the kingdom could do so also)
The Great Kingdom went to war with the devil and his faithful children. The family of the D. were brutally outnumbered, but fortunately they were prepared. They created three ancient weapons to help them with the war. The rest of the world and even the Devil itself were so shocked by the sheer power of the ancient weapons that they didn’t notice what the Great Kingdom was actually working on: a way to kill the Devil: The project to kill him and to unite the world into was written down on the Rio Poneglyph. The One Piece, whatever it is, is somehow crucial to this plan. However, this plan was put on hold when the Kingdom began to succumb to the incredible power of its opponents.
The family of the D. used their trump card (which I will not reveal yet for theatrical purposes) to imprison the devil within the manmade ocean, where he was as helpless as those who ate his fruit. They imprisoned him somewhere in the ocean (earning him the nickname of Sea Devil), and sent the island of Raftel along with the One Piece and the Rio Poneglpyh to the bottom of the sea, then used their skill with the voice to permanently alter the geography of the One Piece world, making the rout to One Piece (and the devil itself) almost impossible to fully traverse. The members of the Great Kingdom who were not the family of D. used their abilities to create the Poneglyphs so that the world would never forget the terrifying power of the Sea Devil, and the struggle they went through to free themselves from his grasp.
However, as the war raged on for more decades, the Great Kingdom and its people were all but wiped out. The 20 kingdoms that had opposed them stood together and formed the World Government, as a way to ensure that chaos of that extent never ensued again. Eventually, those who were alive during the war had passed away. The government realized that with the Sea Devil imprisoned, their main priority should be to preserve peace and order at all cost. They had destroyed all documentation of the century and its history became lost. Eventually, the events of the war were remembered by some as legend, and forgotten completely by others. Power over the voice would be passed down to the few descendants of the ancient kingdom that were left, and the world of One Piece had found peace again.
I believe that the final battle in One Piece will be the world of One Piece (led by Luffy) vs the Sea Devil itself, in a battle to free the world. Winning the battle would allow the people to reform the sea into its original state, a sea like the one we see on the Earth: more stable weather and magnetic fields that allow anyone to freely navigate it.
But what about the Family of D.’s trump card? How were they able to imprison the Sea Devil in the first place?
Remember that Momonosuke can seemingly only command Zunisha? And that Shirahoshi/Poseidon can only command Sea Kings?
The Family of D. has the ability to command or sentence god, the Sea Devil, itself
What do you guys think?

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) – …
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“.

Let’s start with Shirahoshi probably travelling along to the Reverie.
As soon as I read this in the latest chapter I thought it was a big mistake. Shirahoshi is the ancient weapon Poseidon because she can communicate with Seakings. This ability however is useless on land where there are no Seakings to control. This also affects the fighting power of the Fishman army which will travel together with the royal family to the Reverie (since Fishman loose their advantage on land).
The WG as of yet has no reason to capture Shirahoshi because they don’t know she is the ancient weapon Poseidon. This however might change because of the involvement of Kano country, the country of flowers.
Its likely that Kano country, just like Wano country, has a connection to Kaido.
This is because Sai, his brother and Chinjao all have numbers on their body. This is similar to Scotch who also was working for Kaido.
And if were talking about Scotch we also have to talk about Drake and Caribou.
Caribou was fighting Scotch and was later captured by Drake (who is also working for Kaido).
And Caribou learned about Shirahoshi being the ancient weapon Poseidon.
That brings me to my conclusion: The possibility exists that Kano Country will reveal the fact that Shirahoshi is the Ancient Weapon Poseidon at the Reverie resulting in the capture of Shirahoshi.
Do you think this could happen or would Kaido try to capture her himself?
