Forum News: Vote in the final phase of the Anime Awards 2014
Ahh, then it was not me lol. Wonder why I did not vote when I actually defended the theory early on lol.... I guess I was not that sure at the time....
Are you sure Uriel? I was sure I voted No, but there is no italics in either options! Lol
Ok, I see yes in Italics, so I did vote yes.
Hahahaha! How can we know for sure? XD
Now jokes, aside I think there won't be another weapon person, and maybe the WG will get Uranus or Pluton but if they had it now they would have used against WB....
Well, I am surprised I even voted, so I am sure I voted yes by mistake
Yes, if we were voting for uranus to be a person, I would surely vote NO!!
But it is possible its not really a weapon. Uranus could be an island, like weatheria someone suggested. All 3 weapons not being literally weapons with 3 different forms.
Or could be like the 3 devil fruit types... One weapon having a
logia like form: clouds or smoke or an ocean..
Paramecia like form: i dont have an example for this
ZOan like form : Shirahoshi
Neither options are cursive so apparently I didn't vote. Regardless at that time I definitely would have voted with a "No".
Congratulation for those who voted Yes. I have been around the OP forums for a long time now, but this is the first time I ever saw such a wild prediction come true. Well done.
When the CP9 was introducted, who whould have voted for Nami singlehandly defeating a member ? No one. Or Robin joining ? No one
It's just that Oda takes weird decisions sometimes. I still don't see how a human that you can't control fully can be considered as a weapon, as a tool. It's not like you can press a button and make Weakoshi do everything you want.

You have to remember no one really knows what the ancient weapons are. I think this shows that even the world government is somewhat unfamiliar with some of the details of the void century. It makes sense the world government would ultimately be somewhat unfamiliar with the weapons if at no point are details given as to what or how they did something. Besides, the issue here would be that fans grossly underestimated the sheer power controlling sea kings gives to shirahoshi. For a long time I have been arguing that controlling sea kings indeed gave shirahoshi control over the entire ocean and no one could do anything about it considering the sheer size and power of a sea king. This is perfectly consistent with shirahoshi being poseidon, the ruler of the oceans.
On another interesting point, I wonder if the name "neptune" within the royal family would already hint at a relationship between them in general and the ancient weapon. After all neptune and poseidon are basically equivalent between greek and roman cultures. Its a little weird that poseidon is the only one of the named weapons that comes from the greek version of the gods and it just so happens that the family of poseidon happens to bear the name of neptune which would be more consistent with jupiter and pluto. If the ability to control sea kings is genetic and hereditary it is possible that all of the neptune family could at some point be considered weapons of sorts considering each of them and their descendants could spawn a new poseidon. The world government could try and breed their own poseidon too if they found out about this.
Even if you can't just make shirahoshi do everything you want with a bottom, there are obviously alternatives. You can drug her, you can extort her, which would be enough. Perhaps they could even have vegapunk study her to replicate her ability by other means. It'd be interesting if they can clone her the same as with the pacifista too though.
