Sometimes I'll re-read random arcs in OP and I come across awesome panels where it seems like Oda is foreshadowing things that will happen; and sometimes it does not come to fruition for 100's of chapters!

I've come across this stuff a bunch of times, and I'd just be happy all by myself because I never had a place to share w/ people and not be totally random, so hopefully this thread can stay open so people can share their cool/maybe not so obvious Oda foreshadowing stuff!

Maybe foreshadowing is not the correct term, could be broader, like recurring phrases or images spread across hundreds of chapters. I love seeing those too!

Here's one I came across today: Sanji's Incorporating fire into his attacks!

Ch. 55 (fighting some iron plated fire guy): http://www.mangareader.net/103-2119-10/one-piece/chapter-55.html

Ch. 415 (Sanji uses his fire leg for the first time): http://www.mangareader.net/103-2522-13/one-piece/chapter-415.html

Actual foreshadowing that Sanji would use same crazy heat leg attack in the future?? Prolly not! But it's a cool connection and to me, it makes Sanji's special attack make more sense and not something totally random imo!

Hope you guys can share some more, thanks!

ooo, also, I've been wondering why it seems like people are complaining so much about this current fishman island arc! But i guess 599 chapters IS a long time to wait to see something!

Chapter 69 (I guess the first time Fishmen Island/Jimbei mentioned): http://www.mangareader.net/103-2142-8/one-piece/chapter-69.html

Chapter 608 (fishmen island!): http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/608/14

And, I also found this image funny, sillouette of the shichibukai:

Chapter 69: http://www.mangareader.net/103-2142-6/one-piece/chapter-69.html

I feel like, Usually the sillouette preview of important characters are pretty accurate, but those definitely aren't!

Here we saw both of Sanjis eyebrows and if we understood it back then there wouldnt be so many discussions about why Sanji always have one of his eyes covered by hair.

Interesting post. I sadly don't have any reference or foreshadowing currently, but I guess silhouettes of the Yonkou can counts as this.

The mention of Dandan by the mayor of Luffys village, the shadow of Sabo's cup in Ace's flashback at the War...
I'm lazy to look for it right now, but later i'll try...

Dunno if it is a foreshadowing like yours, but i found that some months ago :

Nami talks about underwater volcanoes :
http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/OnePiece156/175125-4.html

Some 450 chapters later, the first one to be mentioned and seen :
http://www.tenmangas.com/chapter/OnePiece606/219381-13.html



And on another note, i think this is actually a real foreshadowing, even though i don't have any proof yet:
http://read.mangashare.com/One-Piece/chapter-456/page017.html
I really hope we'll get to see this criminals' country !

October 25, 2011, 11:22 AM
As I've seen so far, Oda rarely mentions any place or person that won't eventually appear in the story, in one way or the other. Anyway, seeing you mention that criminal island, I remembered this:
http://read.mangashare.com/One-Piece/chapter-489/page015.html

The part where they talk about "pirate empress Hancock". It seemed just like some random mention. I thought it was some long dead female pirate. But what do you know - BAM! - there she is!

Ace's death was foreshadowed 50 odd chapters before he died.

http://read.mangashare.com/One-Piece/chapter-520/page001.html

Luffy is holding an Ace of spades in his right hand, a death card in his left hand (Brook), and Luffy's got his mouth open and his head up in the air similar to the chapter Ace died in.

ErosVp
October 25, 2011, 08:15 PM
Old-Mate. If that was Oda's intention, then we shoul start some 'conspiracy theories' here cause Oda is playing with us! XP

I'd like to found a foreshadow of something that didn't happened yet...

Old_Mate
October 26, 2011, 12:10 AM
I'm guessing everyone has seen this before, but I'll post it in case someone hasn't. In chapter 69 (http://www.mangareader.net/103-2142-11/one-piece/chapter-69.html) Luffy draws a picture of what he thinks Nami would look like as a mermaid. During Jinbe's flashback there is a mermaid/fishwoman who looks the same - middle panel of this page (http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/626/8).

@ErosVp I wouldn't mind posting a few theories based on Oda's possible foreshadowing, but I don't know if the thread opener wants us flooding his thread with crazy assed theories :p. Speaking of crazy theories I've got one based on the latest colour page (http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/642/2) which I'll stick in spoiler tags. The title of the page is "Everything's packed" (http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/642/2), you usually pack stuff when you go somewhere or maybe when you're leaving an island. Then there is a bus with "Mermaid Beach" written on it. The sea creatures are all wearing those floatation bubble rings that the mermaids wear so that they can move around easier when they're not in the water. Then we have Franky's surf board, it has shark teeth. Someone else had a surfboard with shark teeth (http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/638/14) for a couple of chapters too. And looking near the top of the colour page there is also a green shark with the same tail shape as Luffy's surf board. So based on ch.642's colour page, they will be leaving Fishman island with a new surfboard. Fukaboshi will be the surprise new nakama, lol.

I've seen something in Wapol's cover series: In Chapter 251, he sells his toys for 50B for each piece. And in front you'll see a little girl with a hat and twin braids - holding "Kabashinshi". Behind Kabashinshi there's "Rikayan" a toy that has the same hair cut as Perona.

Erm, I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I've just been rereading Chapter 636 from the tanko scans (that have a different paper size than those from the Jump). And I've seen a foreshadowing shadow - when Chopper talks about his six forms.... That black piece in the background is Monster Choppy! The top right corner shows the crook of the left arm...

http://thumbnails47.imagebam.com/15802/3314fe158019747.jpg (http://www.imagebam.com/image/3314fe158019747)

The first one was already posted by Old_Mate from the previous page. About the second one, if you're talking about this spread:

http://thumbnails29.imagebam.com/15979/4f8b7a159788199.jpg (http://www.imagebam.com/image/4f8b7a159788199)

it seems to me that the parrot is attacking not only Zoro's left eye but both of them.

The prison on Fishman Island was not necessarily made of sea-stone though.


luffy is in laboon´s mouth and climbs out by himself
in one of the recent chapters he climbs out of megalo´s mouth
Even earlier at the Floating Restaurant, there was a genius wtf moment where one of those 2 bounty hunter guys used a shark as transport to tell them Nami was headed towards Arlong Park.

I like the improbable number of times circumstances result in a random ship falling from the sky. 1)Skypeia, 2)Marineford, 3)Noah and counting.

There's a lot of unexplained name-dropping of Reverie these days, not sure where he's going with that..

Does anyone else get suspicious of the weird things that happened in East Blue that don't turn out to be significant later? Like the dude in a box? (even though that was probably just an excuse to draw silly animals).

Something funny, don't know if you could say that it's a foreshadowing: In chapter 157, there's a seacat sea monster that rises its right paw. This sort of looks like one of those Maneki Neko (winking cat) figures, and IIRC this pose should wish luck for money. In the end of Arabasta arc, Nami disclaim the money that Igaram promised her for bringing Vivi to Arabasta - but in the end of Skypiea, they received that great treasure in Shandora that could be converted to 300 million berry in Water 7.

Luck ... succeeded!

Some of the stories Usopp have told during the series have came true at some point during the Straw Hats' journey. As Rosco12 said there was meeting a Giant Goldfish (as the crew was leaving Little Garden), fighting against a giant mole (against Miss Merry Christmas during the climax in the Alabasta arc) and another that I don't remember.
Maybe someone should make a list of the lies? :D

That Mikio came from Mikio Itoo (http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Mikio_Itoo) which is a mangaka too, and a fellow assistant of Oda for Watsuki (Rurouni Kenshin). His bounty poster seem to be one of Oda's easter egg earlier in the series.

BurnSchulz made me remember the allusions to Captain John Silver. In chapter 233 we see Buggy search for "The legendary Cave" on a "Skull Island". On 450/451 we are introduced to Captain John as one of the Zombie generals and after the fight Luffy get's to keep a armband, which in 527 is revealed to be a Treasure map by greedy Buggy.

As far as I can remember, it's one of the covers where Oda illustrates a pair of characters in a specific theme. And Aokiji was paired with Tsuru (IIRC). So I don't think it forshadowed anything.

I'm not sure if you can call this a foreshadowing or it is rather just a hint, but I've allways been thinking about the following "coincedence" since Caribou was introduced:

Bellamy: http://www.mangareader.net/103-2329-19/one-piece/chapter-222.html

Do Flamingo: http://www.mangareader.net/103-2631-17/one-piece/chapter-524.html (bottom right) or: http://www.mangareader.net/103-28714-8/one-piece/chapter-554.html (bottom left)

Caribou: http://www.mangareader.net/103-58051-8/one-piece/chapter-600.html

They are all sticking theit tongue out a lot (and look crazy as well). I know Oda cares a lot about such small details, so I think there's a good chance, that Caribou is one of Flamingo's subordinates.

This would lead me to a prediction:
Caribou will tell Do Flamingo about what he overheard here:http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/650/3
Flamingo will show up later in Fishman Island to capture the princess. He might end up beating up Jimbei and killing Caribou for fun (cause he's too weak for the New World). Luffy will have to rescue the princess later, finally getting the chance to meet the last one of the 7S. whom he hasn't met so far.

Luffy said at the beginning it will be 10 so this could mean that there definitly will be (atleast) a tenth member.

Borsalino comes from the movie Truck Yarou[1978], where Kunie Tanaka, who's the inspiration for the characters looks, played a character named Borsalino. Akainu and Aokiji are inspired likewise with borrowed features of characters the certain actor played in some of his movies.

There is a joke involving the real name of Blackbeard:

Historically, the pirate Blackbeard was a very fearsome as he is portrayed in One Piece by Oda. The pirate ship of Blackbeard was discovered in North Carolina in 1996, and possibly influenced Oda One Piece when he began in 1997, evidenced by statements that Oda was his favorite historical era pirate Blackbeard.

The name of Marshall D. Teach is partially removed from the name of the alleged real Blackbeard, Edward Teach. His former captain, Whitebeard, received the first Blackbeard's real name (making it as Edward Newgate). Even the name of his first known victim, a former commander of the Fourth Division of the Whitebeard Pirates - Thatch is actually one of the names commonly used for real-life pirate Blackbeard.

The real Blackbeard also surrendered in exchange for a pardon only to return to piracy, and a comparison can be drawn between this and Marshall D. Teach is to join him for the Shichibukai (whose rewards are withdrawn), only to turn his back to the group later.

Oda is a genius!!!:mono

he can make up pretty unique characters / storylines / powers and whatnots, but that also means he likes reading or watching TV to get so many ideas (aside from his very smart imagination) from things to use in One Piece right?

let's try to uncover Oda-Sensei's inspiration to create the world of One Piece...please share what you know or what you're theories are regarding this.

lets start with the strawhats:

MONKEY D. LUFFY

personality: obviously inspired from son gokou (dragon ball)
appearance: (can someone please help me find it T_T) there is a certain "strawhat" wearing bystander in dragon ball manga, i forgot where i can find it but its somewhere in the cell arc/saga.
if you think about it, thats how great oda's imagination is...pulling out a random character in his favorite series and turning it into his main character.

also from this guy: tom sawyer, the carefree and adventurous dude from american tales: http://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/upload/yuiupload/1692788991.jpg

BLACK LEG SANJI:

http://images.wikia.com/snk/images/f/f7/King-kofXIII.jpg

now this is kinda a wild guess...LOL...one piece is released in 1997...the art of fighting (later merged with king of fighters) was released bck in 1992...plus:
1. king also uses almost exclusive "kick attacks"
2. though she is a girl
3. also dresses sanji-esque

if you ask me about sanji (and other bunch of one piece character's) fashion sense....i guess it came from the movie "reservoir dogs" by quentin tarantino
*the characters are color coded as well*
*and one character there is a chain smoker*

Come to think of it... Sanji's pirate name appears to me to be a "tricky" foreshadowing to his fate being treated by okamas all the time (Bon Chan, Ivankov's kingdom and the Okama Mermaids).

"Black Leg"/"Kuroashi" is a reference not only to his fighting style - there's a bird named in Japanese "Kuroashi ahoudori" (= "Black-footed Albatross (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black-footed_Albatross)") that looks like this:
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/1/18/Black_footed_albatross1.jpg/266px-Black_footed_albatross1.jpg
And following the name pattern: Women do get the bird names! And of course: The Okama made him fly!

Oh... And there's a character in one of the Romance Dawn one shots looking like Sanji with one of his eyes hidden under hair.

The previous post was great, i didnt think WB would be related to hogan, but it makes a lot of sense. The Bandana, the bleached moustache, the height..

I thought Oda got his idea of Grandline from visiting Las Vegas.
As you are driving there from California, the first casino you see is whiskey pete, first island is whiskey peak. You have Venetian which is like Water 7, MGM like little garden, circus circus, bellagio and others which give you a similar feel. This could just be me trying to correlate both though....

Anyways,

I thought Pell looked like Brandon Lee from the Crow..
Mihawk like Zorro (from the mask of Zorro)

He couldn't have written the whole plot, because he never imagined the manga to last this long. Oda just gave a fishmen, Arlong, a reason to be in the weak East Blue. I'm not saying that he hadn't a fundamental structure for some arcs and changes though.

edit: Well he had to give him some background information and used that chance to give a hint to Jinbe, whom we haven't seen until in the prior to last arc of the the Paradise part of the manga. I only had a problem with whole, but with the revocation all is fine. :D

As we all know there are many of rogers ex pirates on the seas.
After i saw this:
http://i20.mangareader.net/one-piece/631/one-piece-2454647.jpg

I first noticed the Hat. It looks like the one Little Oz Jr. had on his head.
And as we know Ace made this Hat für Little Oz on Wa no Kuni.

So i guess this could be a foreshadowing of a Character wich will introduced on Wa no Kuni.
And because he is freinds with Krokus, wich as we all know was 3 years on rogers ship, he could be part of Rogers ex crewmates.

__________________________

Additional i want to say that i have a clue wich one of Rogers old crewmates it might be.

Because of the Buggy / Shanks flashback we knew that Rayleigh was very detailed in character:
http://i1.mangareader.net/one-piece/19/one-piece-1668338.jpg

So and the other very detailed person i noticed, wich is unknown til now is on this page:
http://i6.mangareader.net/one-piece/19/one-piece-1668342.jpg
The Person in the top left panel with the sunglasses.

So its a tiny clue, but i am sure that this person will be introduced sooner or later.
Even if its not the person from the Coverstory.
I guess the informations from the Buggy / Shanks flashback are foreshadowning enough on its own.
On this page are other crewmates:
http://i16.mangareader.net/one-piece/19/one-piece-1668356.jpg

I think someday there will be a huge Roger Flashback for sure. But we will see some of theese crewmates alive just like Rayleigh.

Just a little additional information: That ave wielding guy was named Scopper Gaban (http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Scopper_Gaban) in the Deep Blue data book, unlike Bronze as some[me included] have suggested after Silvers Rayleigh was introduced, following his schema of precious metals[Gold.D. Roger].Also he was discussed to be the person on the 631 cover, as all of the Roger Pirates had to retreat somehow or make a name for themself. I don't think there's a need for more named characters in that pirate crew with two[Shanks & Buggy] already being big support chracters; one having played a role at the Mugiwaras entrance to the Grandline; one starting the Pirate Age and Silvers preparing Luffy for the last part of the story.

So, Dogura taught Luffy math well enough to add 3 and 4. ;)

Chopper revealed in his fight against Chessmarimo that he'd be able to transform into 3 different "standard" and 4 additional "rumble ball" forms (http://www.mangareader.net/103-2256-9/one-piece/chapter-149.html). So Luffy actually was listening to him.

Chopper had some of his transformations modified by him, so they turn out different, and he doesn't need Rumble Balls in most cases.


Brain Point -> Brain Point
Walking Point -> Walking Point
Guard Point -> Guard Point (boosted with Rumble Ball)
Arm Point -> Kungfu Point
Horn Point -> Horn Point/Horn Cannon (improved Form)
Jumping Point -> ? (yet unrevealed, likely the one he still needs the Rumble Ball for (http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/636/11))

"Guard Point" etc. are the Japanese Names by Oda. ;)

IMHO, attack names shouldn't be renamed (in any work) - mixing them up or giving one attack two different "new" names is preprogrammed then. And the only reason to do such things is censorship and trying to attract a different audience. Translations would be okay if they are adequat and correct, but in OP's case I prefer no translation at all since Oda creates the attack names based on different languages, so they are a part of a character's composition.

It happened with several of Luffy's attacks, e.g. Gomu Gomu no Ono is Gum-Gum-Bombe ("bomb"), -Keule ("mace") and -Dampframme ("steam pile driver") - "Axt"/"Streitaxt" ("axe"/"battleaxe") would have been correct instead. Sanji's and Nami's attack names were also replaced by filler text like in the first 30 volumes iirc. And all of Zoro's attacks were renamed to that stupid "Monster Strike".

To me, those "double ***" names don't make actually that much sense since they are misleading. The rumble balls don't "double" anything at all but only modify the transformation ability of the Hito Hito no Mi.

I mean, until Volume 38 as German, I paid the double price for the manga just to receive a revised version which didn't even pass a simple examination compared to the original with an online translation tool. :/

BurnSchulz
June 01, 2012, 02:20 PM
Well my first Contact with One Piece was in slightly before it started first time on German TV. So Around 2001.

I Thought Monster Strike is absolutely awesome! I was even a little bit dissapointed that they didnt use that term in the first episodes while they used it in the Manga volumes.
Luffy has a silly personality. He thinks very straight and that way he name his attacks directly the way he thinks of them.
He wanted a punch as hard as a Pistol so he named his attack after a Pistol. In germany its "Pistole".
And seriously, it would have been super awkward when Luffy, who is in the German version obviously German-speaking would name his attacks in half japanese half english language.
I was, and i still am, absolutely fine with the German translation of his attacks. He is speaking German Language, so he name his attacks german. It fits his personality very well.

But at the point with the misleading of choppers attacks i have to agree with you. You´re right that nothing is "doubled". But as "Plüsch" you can describe his fur. And "Arm-Strenght" indicates that he has more power in his arms. - So besides that "double"-thing the names make sense and are just adjusted to the german readers. For most people it is very strange when characters, wich speak perfektly german (in the german version) suddenly use perfect japanese words for their attacks. English is a good compromise though.
I personally dont understand why you think they renamed Choppers attacks a bit for "Censorship" or "to gain more young readers"...
It wont work that way.. no Kid wich is not intereted in one piece will suddenly be interested because an attack is named in a special way.
And Censorship is a little bit too far fetched, dont you think so? They just tried to come up with names wich would fit even in the german version.
In Most cases they made a good job i think.
But to be honest in some cases i was kind of dissapointed though.
I am also at some points dissapointed that they didnt use Sanjis attack names...

Well, but if it's just an attack - why then change the name? There's absolutely no need for renaming such things like names, and still it is done just to do a revision. Especialy anglicism creations are meant to sound cool and fashionable in German (even if Oda used non japanese names there's no reason to create a new english name for it). And that is censorship for me. It's not different from repainting bikinis to swimsuits, putting black bars over naked breasts and peeping out "bad words" - in case of renamings it's an unnecessary change of the original work. The author had an intention to use that name, and the reader isn't allowed to even know that the original name exists.

About the Monster Strike. I saw OP first on TV and was hyped when Zoro used Monster Strike for the first time - but then I soon got disappointed over the fact that Luffy uses different names for his attacks while Zoro turned out to be kinda "uncreative" yelling "Monster Strike!!!" all the time which let to eight different Monster Strikes... It got dull already, so everytime Zoro draw his swords you could say "Oh, that's another Monster Strike..." And then I learned through OPwiki that they actually had different names and partially were based on puns linked to the Japanese culture.

I was quite "disappointed" when I learned that I didn't get what I paid for... official translations done by professionals should be accurate and adequate because they got paid for.

Two finds, hopefully not mentioned ones.

Since we didn't knew that Coby's captain was Garp, this may have been the first hint of in Garp and Luffy being same minded (http://www.mangareader.net/103-2426-17/one-piece/chapter-319.html). I'm still not sure which is the right despriction of those two. haha

Also Aokiji mentioned Water Seven two arcchapters before the Mugiwaras got there, also mentioned that it's near Marine HQ/Marineford. (http://www.mangareader.net/103-2428-15/one-piece/chapter-321.html)

his height hasn't increased much in the timeskip

he merely added weapons to his arsenal, he didn't modify his body itself much it seems

his robot, however, seems to be exactly 5m tall

dude, you only think it is in hindsight

real axolotls do not look like that. they do not have fat little tendrils behind their heads. they have gills.. fuzzy little things that absorb oxygen, not flesh lumps

Before the timeskip, Franky was about as tall as Robin. After the timeskip, he's become taller than her. I'm not saying that he now is 5m tall, as he isn't compared to Kuma who is 6.89m - but I was wondering if or how close he is now to Luffy's "wish"... ;)

well let me add on to this:

this is a repeat of what i posted a year earlier

methinks the fact that the shoulder width of the current franky form fits the old franky's upper arm length is uncanny. it could be foreshadowing of:

http://i46.tinypic.com/122hybq.jpg

also franky frequently stated his old body's weakness was he couldn't modify the back

i think it's a perfect explanation. Franky built the exosuit upgrade/extension, then attached himself to it as per the picture. he never really modified himself substantially during the timeskip, merely adding on this new exosuit to his old body.

at a final fight, when his new exosuit parts are damaged heavily, he could just eject both forearms and pull his fists back in place, eject from the suit by bursting out the stitches and splitting the two shoulder balls. much like the iron man armour ejects from the hulkbuster exosuit addon

That is no "unnecessary cross" - it's part of the Kanji 凶 (read "kyou") which translates to "misfortune". The picture is a standard colorspread by Oda, which was published first in the double issue 37-38 of the year 2003 and reprinted in Color Walk 4 EAGLE.

That also applies to all other Haki colors, foreshadowing would be if it was indicated without explicitly showing but Luffy literally showed Haoushoku in that panel which already was a conformation that he has the same power Rayleigh showed a few chapters later and that we later found out is Conqueror´s Haki.

I'd say that Luffy's Conqueror's Haki was foreshadowed way back when Shanks had a meeting with Whitebeard. A lot of people got very excited about how pirates of the highest caliber could knock people unconscious without even touching them, it doesn't really matter that at that time we didn't know what haki is - from that point on we knew that Luffy is bound to reach that level someday.

But he showed it in a different way. He calmly told the animal to back off, without any hint of anger or force, I think. All the other times, it was with force or anger or desperation. I don't think we saw this kind of conqueror's haki from Luffy until the timeskip, when he was talking to the animals before leaving the island.

And haki could be used by almost anyone, no? But the conqueror's haki is pretty rare.

Uhm... We've actually seen Shanks using Haoushoku in Chapter 1 (or Episode 4) when he fended off Lord of the Coast with nothing but his angry look (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/one_piece/v01/c001/43.html). I agree that Luffy used it for the first time against Motobaro.

As Rayleigh explained, falling unconscious only happens if the stress from the Haoushoku is too much.

Well, it's not much of a foreshadowing because it means that One Piece will change the world, which was already made clear with Whitebeard's last words, and that Luffy will find One Piece, which we already know.

If you don't get it, the narrator Shanks said that because he thinks Luffy will find One Piece (he bet his arm on the new generation) and because in this situation what Coby did without knowing with these few seconds of courage was saving Luffy's life stopping everyone at this moment.

When Coby stopped Akainu, Kizaru was about to destroy Law's submarine with Luffy on the pontoon bridge - Ben Beckman didn't manage to stop him - but he stopped to look for what was happening between Coby and Akainu. Within this time, Luffy got inside the submarine who submerged to get away.

Then, Kizaru tried again to destroy the submarine, and so did Aokiji but it was too late and Luffy and Law managed to get away. Law and Jinbe confirmed that one more attack would have killed Luffy at that time. That's why a laser from Kizaru would have meant Luffy's death for sure.

Usopp has earned great respect from Oimo and Kashi. The giants probably have returned to Elbaf now and telling great stuff about him to other Elbaf people. They will end up respecting him as well. So the idea it's not impossible at all... Imagine that really happens, oh the gasm.

anyway now that you mentioned it, could this be applied to Zoro and Wano samurais as well? I mean, he is now the true wielder of Shushui, a katana once belonged to the legendary hero of Wano. They might considered him the 'sacred' heir of Ryuuma or something like that for wielding the katana. You guess the rest.

I think that maybe Ivankow meet Crocodile during his rookie years and Crocodile wasnt Okama himself but he was a deck hand, slave on Okama pirate ship:derp and thats how he started as pirate :3c Nobody is recognizing him now because he was forced to wear makeup by his capitan like all okamas of the crew, nobody beside Ivankov that probably had contacted his capitan for some reason- tea party or meeting of some kind, about Okama stuff. Young Crocodile would be painted like sad/angry mime- if I was Oda I would do it this way :derp How this would be his weakness or is connected to it? I have no idea :derp

Its clear that Crocodile has connection with Okamas- Ivankov knows him, he had strong okama in his organisation as Mr 2, he has very strong pride so him being deck hand, slave on some Okamas pirate ship would be embarrassing fact. I dont think that his gender was changed by Ivankow, it would be to easy to guess for Oda.
Even Baroque Works/ Crocodiles Jolly Roger had Okama-like wings. Purple-pink ones. With two crossed swords/ spades :jk Maybe that points to somethung else.. we will see if Oda will push series to some more adult, tabu subjects for many.
http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090415082731/onepiece/images/9/91/Baroque_Works_Flag.png
So who knows maybe Crocodile is using his previous Capitan Jolly Roger? Or being with okamas rubbed on him in some ways:teehee

"In SBS Volume 56, a fan asked Oda why Crocodile was wearing his own clothes since he was still in prisoner clothes after he's released, Oda replied that he went to Newkama Land and got his clothes from there." just to add to his connections to Okamas.
Maybe Oda used some elements from Capitan Hook designing Sandman. Maybe real corocodile eaten his Okama capitan and thats why he named himself Crocodile, praised them- having few of those as pets in Alabasta, even had ship with Crocodile theme.
http://i12.mangareader.net/one-piece/212/one-piece-1691389.jpg
Maybe he stuffed his capitans killer- crocodile that we can see on his rainmaker. Capitan Hook from Disneys movie "Hook" that aired in 1991 had stuffed crocodile as memento, crocodile that has eaten his hand.
When it comes to Mr 0 hand, I see two possibilities- he lost in in fight with Whitebeard and gotten that nasty scar on his face in same fight or he still has it but uses hook as a standard all time weapon.

That fight is absolutely fantastic, mainly because of the way Zoro prepares himself to give his final slash, which is this one:

http://z.mhcdn.net/store/manga/106/21-195.0/compressed/One_Piece_195_20_21.jpg?v=11192683608

and

http://z.mhcdn.net/store/manga/106/21-195.0/compressed/One_Piece_195_19.jpg?v=11192683608

.. in the first of these two pages, at the bottom, Zoro firslty hears the metal, and then transfers his thoughts to his sword, softly brushes the palm without cutting it, and with the same move cuts the stone in two... Such remarkable panels.

It was discussed if that was the posterior CoA, and if hearing the metal was some kind of CoO. We don't know if will could work like that when imbues the armament in an object. I would prefer this not to be neither kind of haki, but a different kind of tech.

Just watched the newest episode which ended with Law taking Smoker´s heart. Watching the episode, i noticed something that i not really thought about much after reading the manga chapter, namely what Law said while preparing "MES". "There are some things you can´t see without changing your standing a little" which perfectly connects with what Aokiji said at the end of the PH arc "Even without Marine affiliation, one can accomplish many things. And there are many things that become clear after leaving the Marines behind". I think both are a foreshadowing of Smoker leaving the Marines at one point.

Just gonna put it out there, i don't have the time, or the effort, to do all the razzle dazzle links-well cause what i have to say doesn't require them.

Has Anyone else Notice that So far Each Island the SHs have gone to seem to be....specialized towards characters;
Fishman Island/Luffy(making fishman/merpeople accept humans)
PH/Chopper(medical island/kids saved)
Derossa/Sanji? beautiful women/food

and then there are assumed islands to visit
elfba/usoppu
wa no kuni/zoro
raftel/robin

as for brook, franky, and Nami idk.... but i think this is a solid "foreshadowing" on Oda's part. as if each island visited puts the characters one step closer to their dreams/goals

please read this chapter carefully
akoji says sorry to jimbei at the bottom of theright hand corner. This means although Akoji was following orders he didnt want luffy to die. now this page and akoji's treatment to robin in her flashback foreshadows akoji leaving the marines
i suspect he is not the only one - it is likely that garp and sengoku will leave soon due to future actions.

it raises the question why does magma boy want luffy die and considered him dangerous

in my opinion dragon has links to the marine

Because he follows the "Lazy Justice", probably knows Jinbe personally, his dreams and goal to keep an island save of pirates. It's not suprising for Kuzan to be sorry for having to follow orders for action he would likely not execute himself if he had control over the marines/ proceedings.

Akainu on the other hand was depicted as a bloodthristy marine, of course he would like to see the blood of the person who started the biggest disaster[the start of the new pirate age] vanish from earth.

i think the next gear luffy is going to use is probably goin to make him a giant. http://www.mangareader.net/103-2612-5/one-piece/chapter-505.html
now in this chapter he says this is the arm of a giant.

in this they say that lufffy is a giant - http://www.mangareader.net/one-piece/704/14

also in the z film luffy becomes a giant due to lilly eaten the Mini Mini no Mi. lily used the fruit to grow inside luffy in order to burst them up.
http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/Lily_Enstomach

it seems that all of tihs foreshadows luffy's next gear as a giant which will prove to those who think luffy as a giant to be a giant#

in this sense luffy can use the giant gear to defeat JB without revealing his secret

this can fit with the whole theme of giants when the sh visits the island of the giants



ussop becomes the leader of the giants if true then most ly that island will be luffy's territory

Mugiwara no Max @AP made a great post about many Alice in Wonderland references within OP.


This idea has been briefly mentioned, but I believe that Oda’s theme basis for the upcoming arc will be Lewis Carroll’s books ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland’ and ‘Through the Looking-Glass’. In my opinion Oda has already given us a lot of hints!!
Here are a few parallels that I have noticed so far:
Big Mom- bears many similarities to the Queen of Hearts, including:
-A very quick temper, is fast to sentence people to death
-A great love for sweets
-Queen of Hearts' subjects are mainly animals (ie- SMILE armies)
Big Mom is also fond of tea parties which feature prominently in ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland’.
Underworld- “Wonderland”. In the books, Wonderland was accessed via a rabbit hole and seemed like a strange underworld.
Playing Cards- ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland’ uses playing cards as imagery throughout the story. The sequel ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ does a similar thing using a game of chess.
Gigantism via food- Alice inadvertently eats cake which causes her to grow to giant size. There is also a drink which causes Alice to shrink, and a mushroom which also affects size. In Carroll’s books, this also relates to position in the food chain and fear of being eaten, which could obviously relate to Big Mom.
Law- Could easily be compared to the Knave of Hearts, who is later made to stand trial for stealing the Queen’s Tarts (ie- stealing the supply of SMILEs from Big Mom?).
Doflamingo- The Queen of Hearts plays Croquet using flamingos in place of mallets.
Buffalo- Looks very much like the grinning Cheshire cat with a floating ability. [edit: He even lost his head. :D]
Bobin- Looks quite like Tweedledum or Tweedledee.
Pekoms- Seems quite similar to the Mock Turtle, who is seen with a Gryphon (which has Lion parts too).
Tomago- Alice meets Humpty Dumpty in ‘Through the Looking-Glass’.

On top of these similarities, Carroll used a lot of literary techniques that Oda himself uses such as symbolism, wordplay/puns, cultural references and nonsensical humor. Obviously these are early signs and a lot more parallels will be shown I’m sure. There are probably a lot that I have missed!

Tony Jass's fire kick from Ong Back, inspiration for some of Sanji's attacks?

thanks to Sleepwalker@AP for the tin soldier reference:

Hans Christian Andersen's The Steadfast Tin Soldier is represented by the little bugging toy soldier who's with Franky right now.

Durring Fish-Men island when the SH's were fighting the 100,000 fish-men and pirates. I think it may have meant that all the SH's will gain bounties of 100Mil +

Also, with, Luffy's tournament number "0556". I think it has something to do with being, Luffy's next bounty. He also said during the war to, Ace after he released him from the sea stone cuffs that he would surpass him someday. 2 Years have passed after daily tough training. The only way for us to see if he surpassed him is through his bounty. So I'm sure after this Dressrosa arc his bounty will be 550Mil +

There were other things like there where, Dorry and Broggy had bounties of 100Mil then after that, Luffy gained a 100Mil bounty. Then at water seven, Luffy had treasure from Sky Island which was 300Mil beli and he also shouted it out. Then he gained a 300Mil bounty. And another one about the 300Mil bounty during the time when they attacked aqua laguna on the sea train.

Then there was the time when, Lola from Thriller bark said that, Luffy was the 4,444th guy she asked to marry her. Then, Luffy gained a 400Mil bounty.

Also, there's where Zoro always surpasses, Luffy's old bounty so it will most likely be a bounty over 400Mil. Probably 460Mil.

Then with, Zoro fighting, Sanji on Sabaody. He displays blue flames while, Sanji displays red flames. I think it's a hint that, Zoro will gain some sort of blue flame ability. Maybe with his swords.

There was also the time during the Davy Back arc where, Sanji imagined having a daughter with, Nami who looks just like her.
He seems like the only one that can handle, Nami's crazy mood swings since he loves everything about her.
They may actually end up getting married.

Same thing with, Hancock and Luffy. Luffy, continuously said that he owes, Hancock on many occasions. He might end up repaying her by marrying her.
It kind of reminds me of Goku and Chichi.

Zeff referred to the Grand line as a "paradise" before sanji was even part of the crew, long before they got there, everyone after him started calling it a terribly dangerous place, but zeff had probably been to the new world, and so called it that, since people from the new world call the GL paradise. Hundreds of chapters later, we hear the explanation for why he said that.

Luffy may have just said that because he was eager to get there, or it could be he heard it from shanks, but zeff called it that, and immediately after Don Kreig came screaming about how horrible the first half of the GL is, calling it hell and saying how his armada was immediately decimated by one person there, and he seemed to assume everyone there was like that.

Luffy may have just said that because he was eager to get there, or it could be he heard it from shanks, but zeff called it that, and immediately after Don Kreig came screaming about how horrible the first half of the GL is, calling it hell and saying how his armada was immediately decimated by one person there, and he seemed to assume everyone there was like that.

which went to show just how weak Don Craig was. Not so much that one person decimated his crew because that was ust bad luck and timing to encounter Mihawk along the way in the 1st. But he was referring to soo much of what he had already experienced onthe 1st half before encountering Mihawk. And to top it off, we don't even know if he had made it to SA in his journey, yet he had and armada with him. So he was able to get followers, but he wasn't able to handle the stronger people and challenges he would face.

Now looking at the NW so far, there have been different enemies that Luffy has encountered that would be difficult for many to fight, but not so much stronger than all. SO far, we are just seeing how actions in the NW are truly global in impact.

True, but he seems to have lost his nickname years or rather decades ago, while/after fighting Garp. If he lost it there, how would he tunnel out of there and not still have that moniker? Maybe it was really him, but tunneling and drilling are not one and the same in my view. I could have gotten it all wrong too. :/ Would be a nice foreshadowing there/allusion here.

August 21, 2013, 05:14 PM
He could have made a different name for himself, or those that knew his old moniker aren't with him anymore. I'm not saying that it's him, just that it's still possible Chinjao was the one who dug the tunnels. Though at first, I thought it could have been the mole lady... though I dunno if Impel Down prisoners are ever released.

Mole lady wouldn't be on level 5 of Impel Down. Though, the like of Chinjao can be on level 6 or level 5 (since he is stronger than Crocodile but he on about the same tier with Ivankov. Thank gosh, that Luffy fighting evenly with Chinjao that meant he could at least put up a struggle against the top tier of One Piece.

Pluton has been described as a massive ship. It makes more sense to me that in term of size that The Oro Jackson were Pluton. Tom-San had also owned the blueprints to the ship and I don't see why he wouldn't have included the specs for Pluton in it.

IMO. I think that either a complete/incomplete Pluton exists somewhere in the NW. In Alabastra Crocodile was searching for specific poneglyph that had details to its location. Its has also been stated that he had been in the New World before but retreated to the grand line after losing to Whitebeard.

My theory is that Crocodile had heard rumors about the ship while in the NW and knew the only way he could pinpoint its exact location was through reading the poneglyphs. Once he had taken in Robin he went to Alabastra which was the most likely place of finding more information about it. He would then use the Kingdom as his military base once he had obtained the warship.

The world government had already placed heavy sanctions on reading poneglyph and most people were oblivious to them. Therefore the only way one would come into contact with Pluton by using the blueprints and this is why they wanted them back.
I believe Dragon is also searching for it and this is why he is in the NW. I doubt that he has anyone who can read poneglyphs. Therefore as he goes around various kingdoms starting revolutions he also takes his tome searching for it.

Also, Olivia may be working with Dragon hence the reason why the revoluutionaires are serious about protecting her.

In my opinion Sabo and her are all working for Dragon, hence a big reunion is due for the SHs. I can imagine Sanji making a proposal to Robin in fornt of her mother. Classic funny Sanji moment

Schabrak
November 23, 2013, 01:48 AM
Had similar thoughts back then, yet we already knew that Kuzan's and Sakazuki's justices weren't compatible with Borsalino following the CD's orders and therefore standing further to Akainu than to the other, but maybe it is. :-)

November 23, 2013, 02:02 PM
We already know that, yeah, but we didn't know that Aokiji would leave, did we? He only left because Akainu became the fleet admiral/commander, and Aokiji didn't agree with Akainu's idea of justice at all.

November 23, 2013, 02:59 PM
But thinking about that, Kuzan really couldn't have become fleet-admiral from the story perspective. A leader with lazy justice would not have worked in the wild sea of the New World, where everything got much harsher and harder for all factions involved.

I was reviewing this thread and this discussion about the tunneler caught my attention. If you look back at chapter 538 Ivankov introduces a little back story about Shiliew and then proceeds to mention some dangerous level 6 prisoners. Ivankov mentions Catarina Devon, San Juan Wolf, and Vasco Shot. We all know that these characters eventually end up being new members in Blackbeard's crew. Oda uses chapter 538 to foreshadow Blackbeard's future crew memebers. Interestingly enough Avalo Pizzaro is not mentioned.


http://static1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130515234917/onepiece/images/thumb/5/5e/Avalo_Pizarro_Anime_Infobox.png/250px-Avalo_Pizarro_Anime_Infobox.png

However, I feel that the tunneler Ivankov hints to earlier in his conversation with Bon Clay is in fact Avalo Pizzaro. When we first spot the new members in Blackbeard's crew you can see that Pizarro has some kind of metal spiral gauntlets (can't tell if they're drills because his hands are folded). Pizarro is the only new crew member without prisoner's garbs because he probably tunneled out of level 6 to some other level where he pillaged clothing and jewelry. Pizarro spots a large mustache indicating age and he's probably been in Impel Down for a very long time and forgotten about, hence why Ivankov doesn't mention him when talking to Bon Clay about the monsters in level 6.

Ace had a crossed out S in memory of Sabo. His pirate flag was S with crossbones after all. I thought ASCE tatoo was funny when I saw it, because I thought it was a mistake by tattoo artist (so One Piece), since ACE and AS are read the same.

Reverie is the council of kings, you know in Vivi's flashback were many kings were at a round table discussing things. I don't think Strawhats will be included in it, but they will definitely be important. The question is however if it consists of all the kings that didn't rebel against the ancient kingdom or the kings that replaced those that did, like the Riku family of Dressrosa.
