    Awesome Oda Foreshadowing/Recurring Phrases/Images, share!

    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-...hapter-55.html

    Ch. 415 (Sanji uses his fire leg for the first time): http://www.mangareader.net/103-2522-...apter-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-...hapter-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-...hapter-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 Sky is pouring
    The wind is blowing
    The sea looks red,
    a surging sea of flames
    looks like the entrance to hell
    'Perfect', the captain said.

    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...

    What do you desire? Money? Glory? Power? Revenge? Or something that surpass all others?
    Whatever you desire.... That is here... Tower of God!

    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/One.../175125-4.html

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



    And on another note, i think this is actually a real foreshadowing, even though i don't have any proof yet:

    I really hope we'll get to see this criminals' country !

    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...9/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!

    Heh
    Prediction: Dragon will appear on Fishman Island!
    Challenge Gilferbeast!!!

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

    http://read.mangashare.com/One-Piece...0/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.

    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...

    What do you desire? Money? Glory? Power? Revenge? Or something that surpass all others?
    Whatever you desire.... That is here... Tower of God!

    I'm guessing everyone has seen this before, but I'll post it in case someone hasn't. In chapter 69 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.

    @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 . Speaking of crazy theories I've got one based on the latest colour page which I'll stick in spoiler tags.

    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.



    Got it?

    I just watched last week's one piece episode and it reminded me of Chopper's recurring Stick.

    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...



    And that part was cut off in the magazine scans.

    Chopper has a stick in the Unlimited Cruise video games when he was in front of the first barricade with Usopp, Robin and Brook, too - it's eaten by Gabril.
