What This Section Is:
Basically, I’m going to roll out every side thought/theory here and add a little bit of commentary. If one of these becomes more and more of a possibility, I’ll move it over to “Vegapunk – Working” and give it its own page! This page will probably get updated every week or so, but I update the twitter constantly with these things so follow @onepeacetheory if you want to see them a bit sooner!

Unmistakable Pattern – fishman island post @ onepeacetheory (hey, that’s us!)
// // Baron Tamago, Trafalgar Law, Kuma and Gol D. Roger +Whitebeard related in some way.
–> Look at Tamago’s pants \\ Law’s Hat \\ Kuma’s Hat \\ Roger’s Bandana \\ Whitebeard’s Cape (20 Years Ago)
–> I noticed Law and Kuma’s hats and Roger’s bandana earlier but I didn’t want to mention it ever. But 5 incidences should no longer be considered coincidence.
–> It’s interesting that Whitebeard’s cape no longer displays the pattern, but did 20 years ago when he was claiming Fishman Island. Does that mean he gave his away to someone? If so, cool! But who? Why?
–> It’s hard to really hypothesize how the heck these people in different crews and entirely different situations could be related to each other, but why not just guess that it has something to do with the Will of D./Void Century/Rio Poneglyph/One Piece/Mark of the Revolutionary/blah blah 😛
Urouge vs. Enel – hairyCucumber’s comment @ reddit
// The island Urouge is on is currently being run by Enel.
–> I’m going to upgrade this to it’s own page soon, but I want to get this thought down before I forget it.
–> There is lightning spilling out of the island Urouge is visiting next.
–> Enel is the Lightning Logia.
–> It’s kind of perfect, isn’t it? Urouge is a Skypeian and Enel was a Birkan. If Luffy ever visits this island we may learn more about Shandora yet!
<– That Island is Raijin Island and the Mugiwaras seem to have passed it up altogether. We have no reason to believe Enel is on that island anymore!
Remnants of Ancient Technology – WarshipArc’s comment @ apforums
// The Hero’s Water from Alabasta and Energy Steroids from Fishman Island are treasures from the Ancient Kingdom.
–> Alabasta has existed since 500 years before the Void Century, perhaps longer.
–> Fishman Island has existed since at least the Void Century by virtue of Joy Boy’s age.
–> They do similar types of things, just for different amounts of time and for different species. It’s no real stretch to think that they have a similar base (molecular/theoretical) or creator.
Next Shichibukai, Buggy/Eustass Kidd – HeroesDieFirst’s comment @ reddit
// Buggy got that one letter, so a lot of people have been speculating that he’ll be one of the next Shichibukai.
–> In fact, this is as good as confirmed by killmer @ apforums (original thread). The scene above and the one with Blackbeard’s invitation together make a pretty convincing case.
// Eustass Kidd, however, also makes a lot of sense to be a Shichibukai.
–> There’s a lot of spots open. Teach is out, Moria is out, Jinbe is out, Kuma is.. well, there but not there.
–> Kidd is powerful and malicious ($315mm Bounty) and him meeting Luffy in the New World has already been greatly foreshadowed.
–> This isn’t necessarily evidence, but Kidd has another Supernova in his crew, Killer. It means they’ll match up well against Luffy and Zoro if they have to and I can see the chapter title already: 2 Supernova vs. 2 Supernova
Next Mugiwara, Bartholomew Kuma – SBS Volume 59 @ one piece wiki
// “D: Odacchi! I noticed an amazing thing!!! It is that if you show the Strawhat Devil Fruit users in numbers, it will be the numbers from 1~10!!
Luffy-Gomu Gomu (126.96.36.199.), Chopper-Hito Hito (188.8.131.52), Robin-Hana Hana (184.108.40.206.), Brook-Yomi Yomi (220.127.116.11.)
(18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124), but there is no 2 and 9, so is the one who ate the Nikyu Nikyu (126.96.36.199.) no Mi, Bartholomew Kuma, gonna be a Strawhat next? Please tell me!!! P.N. SHANKUS.LOVE
O: WHAAAAAT?! (shock) Gosh that surprised me!
Why was I surprised?! NO COMMENTTTTTTT!!!!!!!! NEXT!!”
–> Kuma, as we know him, is dead. He protected the Thousand Sunny during the time-skip but should now be heartless and an enemy of the Mugiwaras. And although this seems random and seemingly meaningless, I argue that the one thing Oda has been consistent about, if anything, is his extreme attention to detail. He wouldn’t make this kind of “mistake,” if I may. Everything has been very carefully planned and I think it seems only proper that for the New World, Luffy start to recruit some extremely powerful nakama.
Kaido and Vegapunk
// Vegapunk is building islands for Kaido
–> The mountains behind Drake here are clearly being built.
–> Vegapunk built the mountains on his birth island.
–> Drake is clearly talking to a robot/cyborg of some sort. The entire island may be being built by Vegapunk/it is being protected by Kaido for his sake!
Updated! ViperXRockwave @ NarutoForums thinks he’s found Kaido
–> Picture 1, from this picture.
–> Picture 2, Kaido for sure.
1pctheory: We have “Blackbeard,” “Whitebeard,” “Red-Haired” Shanks.. it would make sense that Kaido has some other color associated with him. Why not green? Killer find!
Jewelry Bonney – El_Unico_Nacho’s original thread @ reddit
Update: 1/2/2011 – Bonney has her own updated page now!
// Bonney is somehow connected to the World Government/Akainu
–> She “escaped” from the World Government
–> Akainu did something pretty shady to her. But what?
// Bonney is somehow connected to Big Mam
–> This guy to the left of Bonney is wearing a shirt that says “Great Mam”
–> Here’s the manga version of that scene
–> Bonney and Lola have the same hair color.
–> Already tons of speculation that Big Mam and Lola are related/connected
redditor pursutioms: “F*** that, with some Ivanakov magic…Bonney is SABO!!!11”
Luffy’s Mom – MrLaughter’s original thread @ reddit
// “Something to take into consideration: Ivankov can change genders of anyone. Any potential females could have been turned male after Luffy’s birth in order to avoid military execution for their ties to Dragon.”
–> Great idea! It really could be anyone now. It’s weird that Dragon hasn’t been seen with any women though. Either he’s avoiding her on purpose or she’s already dead (which would suck).
Franky’s Dad – brother-red’s original thread @ apforums
// Franky’s Dad is Kaido
–> Franky was left behind, in the way we theorize other powerful pirates have.
–> Combine with the Kaido/Vegapunk connection theory
–> And the last panel on this page. If Kaido has something to do with cyborgs/future-tech, he could fathomably be Franky’s dad! Like father, like son, eh? An obvious stretch, but funny.
Makino’s Baby – SBS Volume 63 @ one piece wiki
// D: The thing that concerns me is the cover of chapter 614. You see how Makino-san is holding a baby? Does that mean that baby is Makino-san’s child?! And does that mean the father is me?! P.N. Dandelion
O: NOT YOU!!! (Shock) …ah… Sorry. Well–. Seems Makino-san became a mother. She looks very happy. The father is maybe that person-. Yeah, probably that person.
–> Cover here: http://www.mangapanda.com/one-piece/614
I think it’s Shanks’ baby. It would explain why he’s always hangin out at that bar 😛
// reddit user M*F*LuBu points out that this baby has light hair and Shanks/Makino don’t.
Pro Shanks (Leaving Kids)
// My buddy Zach wants to remind us that Yassop left Ussop in East Blue and that strategically it makes the most sense to leave your children behind the weakest sea. If you had women and children in the New World they’d get absolutely slaughtered with the quickness. Lending more credibility to this is the fact that Dragon left Luffy in East Blue as well. The New World Superpowers might all do it.
