On this page, I’ll roll out baseless but otherwise cool predictions that I’m willing to put my name behind 😛
Remember, these “theories” are more fanfiction than not, and is just another way I can contribute to the One Piece community.
As with every section of this site, please be entirely caught up before reading anything on this page! Thanks 🙂
// Exploration: Zoro’s Three Final Swords
Prediction Date: Long Time Ago
–> A lot of people have probably already predicted things along these lines, but oh well. My site. Deal with it 😛
–> The Wado Ichimonji will most likely stay with Zoro until the end. That way, when he becomes the world’s greatest swordsman, he will have both honored Kuina’s memory and elevated the Wado Ichimonji to the level of Saijo O Wazamono. It could become 13th Saijo grade sword, or maybe Zoro will destroy one and have the Wado Ichimonji replace it as number 12.
–> I also believe that Zoro will keep Shusui, in honor of Ryuma’s soul of a warrior/spirit of a swordsman. Update (09/28/2013): Ok.. Not anymore. He’ll probably return it to the Samurai’s once the Mugiwara visit Wano
–> As for his last sword, it’s likely that he’ll eventually upgrade his Sandai Kitetsu to the Nidai Kitetsu. As far as the Shodai Kitetsu, it may very well have already been shown. The current owner is the bald swordfighting Gorosei. There was a great post with analysis of the grips that I will find as soon as I can.
–> Otherwise, I think it would be way more impressive if Kitetsu himself made Zoro a sword – the Zero-dai Kitetsu (however that would be translated), that he made for himself/his final blade.
–> I don’t think he’ll take Mihawk’s sword, even when he ends up defeating him. Yoru is too big for Zoro to use in his Santoryu style – as is the Shodai Kitetsu, if that is in fact the Gorosei’s sword. Likewise, Rayleigh’s sword could be too big and Shiliew’s as well.
//Franky Will Turn Noah in to Pluton with Den’s Help – Inspired by commenter Steve @ onepeacetheory.com
Prediction Date: 1/30/2012
–> The Sea Kings are waiting for someone to “fix” Noah
–> Franky might be the only person alive who knows what Pluton’s “blueprints” are
–> We haven’t seen anything from Den, Tom’s brother, yet. Den, as a Fishman Shipwright, is entirely qualified and most likely capable of helping Franky achieve this. Further collaborating this notion is the fact that the Straw Hats will almost certainly return to Fishman Island, and this provides even more plot, context and reason.
–> But most importantly, if true, this provides Franky an ending worthy of Oda’s great writing. The Thousand Sunny is kick ass, but if this happens, he’ll be the man who resurrected the Ancient Weapon/Ship that the Pirate King took the World Government down on. Truly a “Ship of Dreams!” He’ll go down in Pirate History (as the rest of Luffy’s crew will/should) as the greatest Shipwright ever to live.
–> We also have reason to believe (not many reasons, mind you) that Franky’s dad is the Yokou Kaido! Check out #MugiParents on the thoughtroll for our rationale!
