            The Three Great Weapons & One Piece Universe Theory


            We know the name of the three great weapons, and they are:

            1) Pluton 2) Poseidon 3) Uranus

            It’s been confirmed that Pluton is a ship and Poseidon is the Mermaid Princess, but Uranus is up-in-the-air as it were, and that is the main point I wanted to talk about.

            To give a brief history of these mythological gods:

            • Pluton (or Pluto) is the god of death. To traverse his domain, one needs to ride with Charon on the river Styx to get to the judgement place. He is one of the three great god brothers in Greek mythology.
            • Poseidon is the god of the sea. He rules all things in the water, can communicate with all forms of creatures there, and in general is just the most powerful being in the sea. He is one of the three great god brothers in Greek mythology.
            • Uranus, along with Gaea, is the creator of the world. He was overthrown by his children, the Titans (mostly because he hated them) in collusion with their other brothers, the Cyclops and the Hekatonkheires. After he was castrated, the world was filled with all manner of creatures, the Giants, the Furies, etc. He is NOT one of the three great god brothers, but their ancestor.

            Now, the last part should be a bit odd, because it doesn’t fit into the theme of the weapons being named after the god brothers and each having their own domain: Zeus controls the skies, Poseidon controls the seas, and Pluton controls the underworld. This is an important point, however, since the domains are STILL split up:

            • Uranus is the Sky
            • Poseidon rules the Seas
            • Pluton rules the Underworld

            And so, to connect this to One Piece, we have to consider certain aspects of this:

            • Pluton is a large Ship that can destroy Islands.
            • Poseidon is the Mermaid Princess who controls the Sea Kings and all creatures below it.
            • Uranus is ?

            Pluton and Poseidon have clear, direct parallels to their Greek roots, so on that basis I think Uranus must also have the same roots in Greek mythology.

            I also want to take note, that Pluton was essentially created on an island in the Grand Line and Poseidon was a power that manifested in the Mermaid Princess, and both of these are powers that existed in their respective realms (i.e. the realms Greek mythology would have them exist). On that important note, I think Uranus is in one of the Sky Islands.

            Another thing to note, is that Uranus mixing with Gaea lead to the creation of all the exotic creatures in the world. However, in the One Piece universe, we don’t have too many nuanced creatures besides Giants. Except, its not realistic for the power of Uranus to be “control the Giants” because that contradicts Uranus’ personality: he hated all his own offspring.

            So here’s my theory on Uranus, and in extension, where Raftel is, why no one has ever reached there besides Gol D Roger, and why the World Government was able to overthrow the previous civilization:

            DISCLAIMER: at a certain point, this will obviously become guesstimates because the future parts are contingent on the previous parts happening which could also not happen

            • Uranus is not a ship, or person, or anything like that, but is actually a tree in one of the Sky Islands which “drops” the Devil Fruits onto either the ground or on one of the lower Sky Islands. It is the highest Sky Island, from that logic, so it can “drop” its fruits anywhere. This is supported by a small point:

            All the devil fruits in the world have been accounted for.

            This is, from a logical perspective, an impossible thing to catalog. Even if you got all the devil fruit users named, how do you know that there aren’t other devil fruits available that no one has ever been able to arrive at? The only way to do that is if you knew the total amount of fruits a priori (before the fact).

            • And this is the part where I guess that the Sky Island Uranus is on is actually called Raftel.

            This might seem totally random, but I actually have a reason for this:

            Sky Islands are remarkably hard to arrive at, not just for the route to get there but because even getting the Sky Island on your map requires A LOT OF LUCK. Think about Luffy getting on Skypiea: this feat was just pure luck that his compass started to point up. This normally never happens, which is why we didn’t see other pirates on Skypiea besides the people who already lived there, because it just so hard to get there. If Raftel was on the sea, then why wouldn’t some person just randomly get Raftel as their next destination point? It only seems logical that when people normally do get Raftel in their destination point, it seems like their compass is just dead.

            Which, also being a pure guess, gets me the next point:

            • Raftel is an Island that moves.

            If Raftel were just a Sky Island that stayed put, it would be easy for some people who did get Raftel on their maps to consider Raftel a Sky Island and go there and find Gol D Roger’s treasure. This hasn’t happened, so Raftel must have another layer of complexity the likes which has never been seen. Additionally, because Devil Fruits can be found anywhere, Raftel must be floating if Uranus is on it so that Devil Fruits can be found anywhere.

            Additionally, from all this, the treasure that Gol D Roger held was not a huge pile of booty. I can only assume this, because no major pirate or the Marines (who have the infrastructure) have been randomly digging in any of the islands. Not a single person, in fact, has been shown “treasure hunting.” For instance, what if Luffy found out that One Piece, the treasure, was in Log Town? That would be crazy stupid, because you actually would never have had to cross the Grand Line to find One Piece. People assume that One Piece should be very difficult to get to, but what if it was just a simple place to be? Additionally, how much wealth would really be in One Piece? Let’s say One Piece was worth 10 Billion Beri. Well, who wouldn’t have noticed Gol D Roger depositing large amounts of treasure onto an island that he stayed on for a while? Shanks and Buggy would surely have known about the treasure of One Piece and Buggy would definitely have taken a part of the treasure for himself after Roger died. But Buggy didn’t, in fact, Buggy doesn’t give two shits about finding One Piece, and I can only find a reason for that if:

            • One Piece isn’t the name of the treasure he had, but it is the name of the PAST CIVILIZATION found in the poneglyphs.

            That’s the only sensible way that Gol D Roger would have found both the True History and also One Piece on the same journey.

            • This next prediction has no rhyme or reason, but it is my guess as to how the World Government toppled “One Piece”: the World Government used Haki to defend against the Devil Fruit Users, they sent Posiedon to the seas also through Haki and Devil Fruits they had, and forced Pluton away by using a combination of Devil Fruits and Haki users.

                  Inspiration Behind the Poneglyphs


                  The name Poneglyph itself was more than likely chosen from hieroglyphs (Word of the Gods). However, given that Oda has been inspired by Vikings it seems that the Poneglyphs main inspiration has come from the Rök Runestone. There are many different types of Nordic runestone I could have used, but this one seems to have many elements which the Poneglyphs also have.
                  To begin, the Rök Runestone contains a fragment of what is believed to be a lost piece of Norse mythology. Similarly to how the Poneglyph’s (perhaps more so the Rio Poneglyph) has fragments of the lost history of the Void Century. The passage on the stone itself has three parts which each consist of 2 questions and one poetic-like answer, much like how Robin discovered there are Poneglyphs containing clues or truths.
                  The stone mentions twelve battles of war over two war booties/precious weapons which would likely be the Ancient Weapons in One Piece. Although the number of weapons are different, perhaps One Piece’s narrative required three. Possibly that the origins of each weapon came from a Sky Island, one from Earth and another from Fishman Island, or something along those lines.
                  The stone also refers to twenty kings (four brothers who each had five sons), these brothers all had the same name. This piece of mythology was supposedly common knowledge at the time, but has since been completely lost. Now we know the Twenty Kingdoms brought the downfall of the Ancient Kingdom and became the World Government. However, the all male bloodline and the same name could also mean the ‘D’s. Although, there are 5 members of the Gorosei who we don’t know almost anything about, so they could be the eldest living descendants of these brothers.
                  If this is indeed the Poneglyphs origin, I’d guess Oda has done what he did with Whitebeard/Blackbeard and used the same source to influence both. For those who don’t know, the real Blackbeard was named Edward Teach/Thatch. From that, in One Piece we got Edward Newgate (Whitebeard), Marshall D. Teach (Blackbeard) and Thatch, who Blackbeard killed to get his Yami Yami no Mi.
                  Finally, the last part becomes difficult to read given that the runes used switches to an older style. It’s been assumed that its intentional, and that the rows following this point concerns legends connected specifically to a single tribe(Vélinn’s). A brief summary would be that Vélinn who wrote the rune lost his son, possibly in the battle I referenced earlier, his wife made some sort of sacrifice, and it also talks about the strength to overcome a giant.
                  Given the cyclic nature of One Piece, this could possibly be used as a description of the first time the World Government and Ancient Kingdom fought. Skip forward 800 or so years and Gol D. Roger finds the Rio Poneglyph. His wife, sacrifices herself to keep Ace alive. Ace then eventually gets killed in the Battle of Marineford, which also happens to include the giant-like Little Oars Jr. However giant could easily mean adversity in general and I’m reading too much into this.
                  All this said, given the history of Ace, he could have respected Gol D. and gained his will and sought to become pirate king. Luffy could have also become a marine like his grandfather or even a revolutionary, but he fatefully met Shanks, gained the Strawhat and wanted only to become pirate king. Ace and Luffy meet and swear brotherhood to one another, meaning in some weird, indirect way Roger is almost like Luffy’s father too. The marines therefore probably killed the wrong ‘son’ and Luffy escaping has broken this cycle.
