So any theories on who Luffy's grandfather is? I know this is going to be a big one and I'm sure its linked to the D. that a lot of these characters have as their middle initial.
My guess, by the way Aokiji talked about him, is that Luffy's grandpa was a former marine who helped Gol D. Roger somehow in the past.
Anyone else want to take a guess?
Or it could be (a family member of) gold d. roger himself...
Perhaps Luffy grandfather was a brother to Roger...
Well, Oda has shown us that new D.'s have a tendency to appear at random, so I'll say we haven't seen him yet. It will be very interesting to see how all the D.'s are connected, though.
Yeah...there is definitely something mysterious about the D. - it's clearly mentioned in the manga.
Luffy's grandpa must either be someonw famous in the pirate world or someone who was a companion of someone famous (like Gold Roger).
Maybe the D represents that they are some kind of clan or pack which has the same bloodline, also Ace does not have the same name as Monkey D Luffy
Is monkey really luffy's last name ? hahaha
Gold roger is too young to be his grandpa !
That's true... have we seen Luffy's father in the manga?Originally Posted by tonitoniluffy
I thought they were referring to Gold Roger. =/
Gold D Roger has been executed about twenty years before Luffy ( 18 years old ) set off... so technically he could be his grandfather...?
I don't think Gol D. Roger is Luffy's grandfather. It just doesn't sit right with me. That and Luffy got nervous when he heard his grandfather being mentioned and he doesn't know that much about Gol D. Roger. Then again he's pretty dense at times.
But here's a wild theory about the D. So Nico Robin talks about the Poneglyphs and the search for the true history by connecting all of them you will find the true history. She also thinks that, it's the One Piece that Gol D. Roger found and left on the last island on the grand line. What if the "D."s that all these characters have are a symbol of the link between the Ponegylphs? Kind of like a true living history between these people that connects them together?
Again wild theory, I'm probably just blowing smoke.
PS - I also think that when they captured Gol D. Roger he somehow let on about Ohara seeing as the incidents happened at the same time. just a thought.
Also when Luffy's Grandpa was mentioned, Luffy had a weird reaction and it was clear that he knows who his grandfather is and what he's all about. Therefore it cannot be Gold Roger since he was executed before Luffy was born.
I think it's most likely Saul/Sauro we know from Robin's FB!
1.) He's got the "D" in his Name
2.) He dealt with Aokiji and fulfilled Saul/Luffy's Grandpa a favour he was talking about on Long Island
[ 3.) That Saul was a Marine is maybe the reason why Luffy reacted so "nervous"]
I agree with all of that except that Saul looks nothing like Luffy... isn't Saul a giant? Anyway I know that won't stop Oda so its very possible.Originally Posted by G-ology
Saul isn't of the giants race as far as i know, just a huge human ( like we've seen many before ), and called a giant before he is that big...
Actually i think it goes like.. Blackbeard is Luffy's Cousin, Ace is not actually his brother, Shanks is somehow related to Luffy and some brother to Gol D. Roger was Luffy's Grandfather. Although maybe he was more like a calm person who didn't like pirating so he settled in Luffy's village. Or something like that.
So so far conirmed for the line of D is
Gol D. Roger
Haguwara D. Sauro
Monkey D. Luffy
Portgas D. Ace
Marshall D. Teach (AKA Blackbeard)
I had to look back and double check that Blackbeard is a D, but its true.
I like the theory that the One Piece treasure itself is the Rio Poneglyph itself. Im not sure how it all gets connected, but I think there is a good chance. The poneglyphs and the lost history are the one thing that the marines fear above all else.
I dont think that Roger himself is Luffy's grandfather, but there is a likely blood relation. Ace is definitely Luffy's biological brother (they seem to look too much alike not to be, although we have no other info). I think Blackbeard could be the son of Sauro. Seems possible bc Teach is huuuge too.
Btw, Sauro is definitely a 'giant.' He says it himself in the flashback. He only says the he isnt from Elbaf, but from some other place.
