Big Mom Pirates vs The Beast Pirates vs The Worst Generation Alliance

Ever wondered why One Piece’s story line is scattered right now? I mean, if you observe Oda’s storytelling from previous arcs, the Straw Hat Pirates always have a clear goal and a specific group of enemy to defeat per arc. But now, it’s confusing to see who they’re really gonna go up against.

They went to Fishman Island, they provoked Big Mom.
They went to Punk Hazard and Dresrosa to defeat Mingo, they provoked Kaido.
They meddled with Jack in Zou, they provoked Kaido again.
They screwed Big Mom’s tea party (among other things), they provoked Big Mom.
Oda is leading us to assume that they’ll first fight and defeat Kaido and then finish Big Mom off. But I think Oda has something else in mind. I believe he is going to create a war between the Big Mom Pirates, Beast Pirates, and the Worst Generation Alliance.
And here’s why.

Oda has been carefully linking all the three factions together. First, he tried to make a group of outrageous pirates in Shabondy labeled as the Supernovas and the Worst Generation. He showcased each Supernova to have an undying will to achieve their goal and have no intention of being or staying under anyone, including the Yonkous.
Let’s break it down for all Supernovas except the Straw Hats:

1. Bege – he only went under Big Mom to plot an assassination against her. But we all know how that went down, so now, he’s a target of the Big Mom pirates and has no choice but to rebel against them. And of course, because of Morgan, news will come out and no other Yonkou will accept him since he can pull the same thing against them.

2. X Drake – seems to be under Kaido to get close to Joker and get revenge for killing his love ones, but now that’s over, I think he’s planning to cut ties with the Beast pirates. I mean, it doesn’t make sense that an ex-marine will go to the New World just to serve under an Emperor. I’m guessing that because he couldn’t touch Joker as a marine, he plotted to kill him using Kaido’s connection with him, thus turning himself to piracy. But he knows he’s not strong enough, and it’s suspicious to join Doffy’s group out of nowhere. So he chose to be under Kaido to be stronger, be protected by his name, and to slowly gain trust for him to be sent to deal with Mingo.

3. Apoo – seems to only be under Kaido to survive, because Kaido defeated their alliance by himself and could kill all of Apoo’s nakama. Although some people say that Apoo betrayed the Kidd-Hawkins-Apoo alliance from the get go, it kinda seems unlikely. The Beast pirates doesn’t seem to be the kind of pirate group to hide their affiliations with anyone. So if Apoo joined, why would they hide it? They’re a group that have a similar impulse to destroy and conquer(why else would their three top fighters be called calamities?). We’ve already seen Jack and his gang do that in Zou. And we’ve already seen Apoo provoke an admiral in Shabondy, it’s hard to imagine that such a pirate would willingly serve under a Yonkou. And why would Kaido of all people bother to come by himself and kick their ass? He could’ve sent one or two of his calamities and have the same result. So I believe they got beaten first, and was given a choice to either serve under Kaido or be executed.

4. Kidd, Killer and Hawkins – Oda did it again with his genius plot twist, he first led us to believe that their alliance will target Red Hair to distract us from his goal to form an alliance between the worst generation. Now Kidd, Killer, Hawkins, and Apoo has a strong reason to ally with Luffy and Law because they saw how strong Kaido is and how they hate him for beating them and probably killing a few of their nakamas.

5. Urouge – with him allegedly killing one of the sweet commanders, he’s a definite target of Big Mom Pirates once they know that he’s still alive. And for the record, I think he didn’t kill Commander Snack, I think Snack wanted to leave BM pirates and asked Urouge to help fake his/her death.

6. Jewelry Bonney – we don’t know where she is yet. But a lot of speculation has been going on that she’s affiliated with Big Mom. Probably one of her daughters.

Now we see that all of the SN, except for Bonney, has a strong reason to fight the Big Mom pirates or the Beast pirates. Making the possibility of all of them forming an alliance more likely when both Big Mom and the Beast Pirates are in the picture.

But, why would they need such a strong and a large quantity of alliance? Here’s why. You remember the summit war? What the marines needed to pull off just to defeat ONE YONKOU? They had one fleet admiral, three admirals, one vice admiral that’s as strong as the fleet admiral, five warlords, all of their vice admirals and pacifistas, 60 warships, and 100,000 soldiers. Not to mention that they had the base advantage so all of their huge cannons are there.

Now imagine the Straw Hat-Law-Mink-Samurai-Colosseum alliance going against the Whitebeard pirates from the summit war. Do you really think they’d win?

We’ve already seen first hand from Whitebeard how powerful a Yonkou is. With him being old, in bad health, and getting stabbed in the heart, he still stood his ground against the Admirals and almost sunk Marine HQ. Why would it be different for Big Mom, Kaido, and Shanks? I mean, if Luffy and Law fought with a version of Whitebeard right now do you think they stand a chance? They’re not even at par with the sweet commanders (Nami & the homies helped Luffy beat Cracker remember?) and the three calamities. That’s why there’s a strong probability of Oda forming an alliance between the SN for them to have a fighting chance.

And keep this in mind, not even one of the SN joined Shanks or Blackbeard. And currently, not one of them have a reason to go after Shanks or Blackbeard (except Bonney who hates Blackbeard).

With that being explained, let’s get to why Big Mom and Kaido will also clash.

Now, why do you think the story is always linked to either Big Mom and Kaido so far? It’s the New World, they could’ve clashed with the other Emperors, but only these two were displayed.

Think of how the story is going so far. Right now the Straw Hats and Tank Pirates are in Whole Cake island and provoked Big Mom like no one ever did. Luffy waged a war against her on Fishman island, ate her sweets, went in her territory, broke mother caramel’s photo, ruined the Germa’s massacre, destroyed the wedding cake, stole Jimbei, faked Brooke’s death, and, well, you get the picture. They made her insanely furious. That’s upfront spitting on Big Mom’s face. Total disrespect. You can’t have that if you’re a Yonkou.

Hence, after Luffy & co successfully escapes, I believe Big Mom will follow them to Wano. Though not just because of the reasons I gave above. I think even an impulsive Big Mom won’t risk a war against a Yonkou for being mad. So what will be the key? The tipping point for Big Mom and her underlings to follow Luffy & Bege and risk to trigger a war against Kaido?

The answer: The copies of the Road Poneglyph

Now that they have Brulee, Big Mom will be informed about the copies. And then, they’ll be no stopping her on going after the Straw Hats, even if they reach Kaido’s territory, Wano, and possibly wage a war, which I think will happen.

Thus my theory of Oda’s plan to create a war against the three faction.

Big Mom Pirates vs The Beast Pirates vs The Worst Generation Alliance

Oda explained why there are big breasts in One Piece

D: We realized that Robin has huge breasts. We checked from the side, and Nami also has huge breasts. Why do they both have such huge breasts? And could it be Oda-san’s preference? That was a question from us two 10-year-olds. P.N. Sakucchan & Yuzu-chanO: I keep saying this, but I’m just bringing the young boys’ dreams to life! All of humanity on earth! I command your breasts to grow~!

How to draw Zoro (the easy way)

D: Please teach us an easy way to draw Zoro!          P.N. Kanahasa–Oda:

Oda:

  • Spiky grass grew.
  • Two “he“’s (へ) in a big sea.
  • A drop of soy sauce on the dumpling, now bless yourself with a cross before your meal and now it’s time to eat!
  • Now there’s 3 swords, 3 swords style!
  • Go jagged, go in circles, it’s Zoro the lost child! He also grew a bit more hair.

Relationship between Monkey D. Garp and Monkey D. Luffy

Though the two of them get along fine, Luffy is utterly terrified of his grandfather Garp. This is due to the extreme training he was put through in his younger years in his bid to make Luffy a Marine, as well as Garp’s tendency to punch Luffy to discipline him.Garp had high expectations for Luffy, but to Garp’s dismay, Luffy did not share his grandfather’s plans for his future. However, Garp respects Luffy as a great person, even if he is a pirate. He often brags about Luffy to his superior Sengoku, laughing whenever Luffy does something audacious and is prone to saying “That’s my grandson” much to Sengoku’s exasperation.When Sengoku was talking with Garp and Kuma, Garp said that Luffy is not the type of person to brag about defeating someone, arguing that Bartholomew Kuma did not need to kill Luffy to keep Moria’s defeat a secret. When Luffy entered the battle of Marineford, Garp recognized him and looked shocked and horrified at the sight of his grandson entering the fearsome battle. Later, as the battle rages on, Garp merely looks resigned as his grandson furiously makes his way to the execution platform. When Luffy came close to the platform, Garp stands in his way in the name of his Marine duties. However, in the end, Garp chose family over his duties as he allowed Luffy to hit him and reach the execution platform to save Ace. He also tried to attack Admiral Akainu when Ace was killed by the admiral and Luffy was on the verge of being killed as well, but was stopped by Sengoku.As Garp has resigned from the Marines, he and Luffy are no longer enemies by law.

Relationship between Sanji and Reiju

Out of all his siblings, Sanji has a better relationship with his elder sister, as while she did partake in laughing at him as a child, she only did so to avoid being bullied herself and tended to his wounds in secret. She felt enough empathy for him to free him from his imprisonment and even tearfully told him that he would meet people who would treat him better.

However, Sanji still showed disdain for Reiju when they reunited as adults due to her role in dragging him back to the family, and her attempts to show him the benefits of a royal life despite knowing what he went through as a child. While watching him duel their father, she would be amazed with the strength and durability Sanji has gained since their childhood. Following his defeat, she would tend to Sanji’s wounds while voicing her surprise that he was the previous weak child that she once knew.

Though Sanji did not think much of her, Reiju treated his wounds after his brothers beat him once again and even questioned his choice to return. After Reiju was wounded by Charlotte Pudding, Sanji felt obliged to tell his sister the truth about the Big Mom’s plan to assassinate the Vinsmokes. When Reiju told him to leave her and the family, Sanji was vocally against the idea as that meant she would die, showing that in spite of everything, he truly does care for his sister. In response, a touched Reiju expressed that she was proud of his empathy, telling him the truth of their mother’s death and alleviating his thoughts of guilt for her passing.

When Sanji decided to rescue her and his family to get rid of his childhood grudge against them, and when it briefly seemed like he would not succeed, Reiju again expressed her pride in him for his empathy. She later expressed a smile after Sanji verbally disowned Judge again after he questioned the latter’s reason of liberating them from Big Mom’s clutches. As the Vinsmokes fought off the Big Mom Pirates, Sanji and Luffy quickly came to Reiju’s aid when Big Mom focused her attacks on her.

EVENTS OF THE REVERIE ARC

Now that the Whole Cake Island Arc is coming to a close I want to compile what could possibly happen during the Reverie Arc.

Relocation of the Fishman Island

I believe one of the first topics that will be brought up during the meeting will be the relocation of Fishman Island by the Ryugu Kingdom. Showing the signatures list created by Otohime is full the notion of relocating Fishman Island to the surface is passed to occur sometime in the coming future. Now I also believe Shirahoshi WILL attend the Reverie and that will intefere with the plans of a certain Yonko.

Abolition of the Shichibukai

Next I believe the meeting will be met with a surprise visit from from Admiral Fujitora. Technically not breaking Akainu’s demands since Mariejois isn’t a Marine Base, Fuji will take opportunity to propose the abolition of the Shichibukai system.

His claim is supported by the evidence of the system has being abused by it’s participants.

  • Crocodile in Alabasta.
  • Moriah abducting pirates, civilians, and Marines for his zombie army.
  • Blackbeard using it to get to Impel Down.
  • Doflamingo in Dressrosa.
  • Law using it for his plan to take down Doffy.
  • Hancock refusing orders and attacking Marines during the Whitebeard War.
  • Kuma aiding the Strawhats.
  • Jinbei’s betrayal.
  • Weevil’s countless casualties during attacks.
  • Buggy still being involved with the underworld and using his title to protect his subordinates actions.

The abolition of the Shichibukai will be supported by Alabasta, Dressrosa, Prodence, Kano, and most likely many others. Those four in particular since they had personally deal with certain Warlords. The notion is passed but is meant to be kept top secret until the Marines can go into action to apprehend and jail the remaining Warlords. We won’t see this occur until after Wano.

Big Mom’s Tea Party/Germa 66

I also believe that the Vinsmoke Family will be in attendance after the events on WCI. They will act as witnesses to relay what had occurred at Big Mom’s Tea Party and the actions of Strawhat Luffy and Gang Bege. However due to their plan to ally with Big Mom their status as a nation in the World Government will be revoked by the end. I believe this will lead to the Germa allying with the Strawhats and joining the Grand Fleet EoS.

Void Century/Poneglyphs

The last topic that will lead to the climax would King Cobra asking about the Poneglyphs and the history of involvement of the Nefeltari Family. Of course the Gorosei would not like that and would order for Cobra to be arrested. The representatives of Alabasta will try to defend Cobra until the entire country is declared as an enemy of the World Government. Other nations try to stand up for Cobra but are threatened as well. As the Alabasta representatives are being arrested a large gust of wind blows into the room revealing Dragon and the top members of the Revolutionary Army. Dragon will expose many of the World Government’s secrets and state that the RA will no longer operate in the shadows and will bring down the World Government.

Other

Now I predict those will be the main events but while they are occurring two members of the Yonko will clash at the bottom of the sea floor. After the Strawhats and Co escape from Whole Cake Island, Big Mom will send her forces and go herself to destroy the Fishman Island as spite towards Luffy and Jinbei. However, when she arrives she finds that the island is already under attack by Kaido and the Beasts Pirates searching for the Ancient Weapon Poseidon; Princess Shirahoshi. This occurred because Caribou whom was captured by X Drake in a cover story will trade the information that Shirahoshi is an Ancient Weapon for his life. This info later made its way to Kaido.

Linlin who’s already pissed off will see this an offence to her as FI is still her territory. The clash between Big Mom and Kaido will destroy FI, thus full filing Madam Shyarly’s vision of Luffy destroying Fishman Island. The clash also let’s a large portion of civilians to escape to the surface which leads to the creation of a new Fishman Island on the surface coinciding what was passed at the Reverie meeting. The news of Kaido and Big Mom clashing and destroying Fishman Island will be delivered during the Reverie meeting thus causing more chaos at the already hectic meeting.

Similarity between Zoro & Rayleigh

Throughout the series, Oda has stressed the similarities between Luffy and Roger by paralleling them on numerous occassions. While not to the same degree, I think its pretty apparent that Oda is paralleling Zoro and Rayleigh in a similar but more subtle manner.

They both possess scars on their eyes. The scars are obviously not identical but they are both an important part of their respective appearances.

They are both drinkers. Not much to say here, drinking is a huge part of Zoro’s character and on the other side, Rayleigh has been shown to drink on several occasions with his flask or at Shakky’s bar.

The signature sitting pose. This is nothing major but I thought it interesting that when Rayleigh first met Roger, he was sitting in the same position as Zoro often does. I can’t think of another character off the top of my head who sits like these two

They are both swordsman.

Neither of them has a devil fruit.

They are both Vice-captains/first-mates of the late and future pirate king respectively. Both, Rayleigh and Zoro were the first crew mates of Roger and Luffy respectively. With Rayleigh being formally named the VC to the pirate king. On the other hand, Zoro has not been given any actual title. However, many others in the world (or at least Bartolomeo) consider Zoro to be the unofficial Vice-Captain of the strawhats. There’s also the fact that Zoro is the only other member who was considered a Supernova.

They are /will become legends in their own right. Of course, being members of the pirate king’s crew automatically puts all the crewmates in the history books, but Zoro will become a legend like Rayleigh by his own merits. It’s clear that Rayleigh is highly regarded in the OPverse but to push home this fact, we should remember that Monkey D. Garp himself said that the marines should not attempt to confront two legends at the same time (referring to Whitebeard and Rayleigh). Zoro eventually surpassing Mihawk will obviously put him on legendary status as well. Considering the current World Strongest Swordsman was referred to as one of the legends among men by Oda himself (he mentioned Mihawk, Shanks, and WB as being “legends among men” specifically).

Fujitora’s Haki

It was stated that all Marines ranked vice admiral or higher possess Haki, so Fujitora can also use the ability.

Fujitora could clash head on physically with Sabo, a Logia-class Devil Fruit user and also a proficient Busoushoku Haki user, demonstrating an extremely high level of skill in Busoshoku Haki. He could focus strong concentration of Busoshoku Haki into his sword, turning it obsidian black and making it strong enough to defend against the razor sharp threads of the Birdcage, which can slice cannonballs and buildings with great ease.

Fujitora is also masterful in Kenbunshoku Haki, which he used to compensate for his blindness in battle. His incredible skill in Kenbunshoku Haki gives him a strong sense of danger. He can accurately predict fast attacks from enemies such as an unexpected kick from Doflamingo. In the anime, he could sense Doflamingo’s fast Parasite thread and even grabbed it before it took control of him. He also correctly sense an enranged Pica preparing to attack before his subordinate pointed out to him. In his fight with Sabo, he could keep track of Sabo’s extraordinary agility which is enhanced by the fire based powers of the Mera Mera no Mi, but the most prominent example is his capability to see his surroundings in a form of an aura which is not impeded by his blindness. Similar to Otohime, Issho can also read and hear the true thoughts and emotions of other people as he was made aware that the Dressrosa citizens had no ill will towards Luffy while they were “chasing” him at the Dressrosa coast.

Blackbeard’s Endgame Goal

Blackbeard is the Yonko that will likely serve as the final antagonist. He is also the one with the endgame goal that is most dangerous towards the whole world. Not only is he the only Yonko that is actively pursuing the title of Pirate King, he is also the person that has made many personal enemies. Aside from trying to become Pirate King, Blackbeard is known as a generally evil person who is feeding his crew with Devil Fruit powers in order to control and dominate the seas.

Blackbeard is likely trying to become the ruler not only of the pirates, but the seas in general. This makes him one of the most feared people in the One Piece world, by both other pirates and the World Government. His mysterious abilities and cunning strategies allow him to work his way up, and right now he already holds the rank of Yonko. Whatever happens in the future arcs, Blackbeard is most likely the most dangerous person in the world of One Piece at this moment, and he is still gaining momentum.
