One Piece Manga Chapter 925 – Luffy, Kid and Lord Kozouki Oden

one piece manga chapter 925 - luffy, kid, and lord kozouki oden

In today’s post, we are going to discuss the One Piece Manga Chapter 925 and the possibilities it may hold.

In the previous chapters of One Piece, Luffy was enraged when Kaido attacked his friends near the ruins of Lord Oden’s castle.

Following this, we saw Luffy getting into a jail along with a fellow member of the Worst Generation, Eustass Kid.

He managed to land some blows against the King of the Beasts, but was ultimately easily and utterly knocked out by him.

What’s interesting is that Kid was fed poisonous fish by Kaido’s men!

What seems to be happening in the prison, is that the Beast Pirates are trying to somehow break the spirits of Kid and Luffy, to succeed in making them their subordinates.

What awaits us in Chapter 925?

Chapter 924 marked the end of the so-called first act of the Wano Kingdom arc.

What awaits us in the next chapter?

We have a week of break in front of us, so what better way to spend our time than on predictions and theories? 😛

With the chapter 925 release date being delayed for one week, we have plenty of time to theorise about the development of the second act of the Wano Kuni arc.

What will happen with the plan?

First things first, with one of the most important players of the plan locked away, Kinemon’s plan falls to pieces.

Now, he and the alliance need to find a way to make new preparations and spread them among them.

One possible interesting development would be for the news about Luffy reaching Big Mom.

After all, Luffy is now considered by the world government as the fifth emperor of the New World.

If that happens on time, then we’ll probably see her play some role in the upcoming One Piece Chapters.

After having the first plan focused on Luffy, now that he is in jail, the second act will probably focus on the other Straw Hats and the allies.

After all, regardless of Luffy the plan still needs to be carried out.

Will the alliance try to rescue Luffy?

Will the alliance try to carry out any rescue missions for Luffy?

Well, that is certainly a probable idea, however, one that might not bear fruit.

It may be a better idea for Luffy to get help from the inside, maybe with a cooperation of sorts with his fellow in-jail Supernova, Eustass Kid.

Will Luffy get a power-up?

Also, it seems quite probable that Luffy will somehow get a power-up, maybe through some kind of training or otherwise, as we discussed in our breakdown of Chapter 923.

After all, from their clash, it seems certain that Luffy has no chance against the King of the Beasts, at least the way he is now.

The possibilities are that he will develop a new gear, or perhaps gain the ability to utilize his conqueror’s haki consciously.

For all these, the probability is high that a new teacher/mentor/trainer will appear for Luffy.

Who are possible masters for the in-jail Luffy?

Ideas here vary, starting from the name of the legendary member of the Roger Pirates, Scopper Gaban, down to Lord Kozuki Oden.

Could Lord Kouzuki Oden be still alive?

And here comes the theory about Lord Oden actually being alive!

Yes, you heard that write!

Let’s go back to a much-discussed One Piece manga cover page, featuring Crocus having a cup of sake with a mysterious man.

Many theories have stemmed regarding the identity of this man, ranging from Scopper Gaban, Lion Shiki, and Lord Oden.

To me, it makes much sense that this man is actually Lord Kozuki Oden, the Daimyo of Wano Kuni!

First of all, his outfit is completely indicative of Wano Kuni.

He certainly lookes like a samurai.

Not to mention the hat that is indicative of the Wano Kingdom as well.

On top of that, he was one of the four members of the Roger Pirates who likely reached Raftel, them being Roger, Rayleigh, Scopper Gaban, and Lord Oden.

So, what actually happened to Lord Oden?

Judging from that, what Kaido has probably done is he tortured Oden, to try and get the information about the One Piece and Raftel from him.

That’s also the reason that Kaido attacked Zou looking for the samurai Raizo.

And of course Raizo chose not to tell anyone, even those close to him such as Momonosuke and Kinemon about what he knew.

The fewer people knew about this dangerous information, the better for them I guess.

But we do know that Oden was boiled alive right?

Well, that’s what Momonosuke and Kinemon said about it.

However, we have no way to know if they were present in that scene or just heard about it from someone else.

The idea is that they can’t be exactly sure Oden is dead if they didn’t witness his death with their own eyes.

And here we can talk about the far-fetched ideas, like the memories of Momonosuke and Kinemon being altered, to the more probable ones.

Could it be that the one who was killed was a body double of Lord Oden?

After all, it’s pretty much a guarantee for the higher-ups in feudal era China (on which Wano Kuni seems to be based on) to have body doubles.

One thing is certain though.

We have never seen Oden’s death and that’s always something to watch out for at anime.

When you haven’t seen someone die (or even if you have :P), then probably they aren’t dead.

Who forgets Orochimaru or Obito, just to throw some random Naruto spoilers here :D.

Or maybe Oden himself wants to be thought of as dead.

But why would he do that?

Well, maybe to motivate his people in order to defeat Kaido.

Drastic times call for drastic measures, and that may have been the only to help promote his plan.

Who knows!

For an interesting video breakdown of the theory you can also check out the below video which I really liked.


Wrapping up, the basic ideas today are that Luffy must get a power up to defeat Kaido, the plan of the alliance must change, Kid and Luffy may help each other out in Kaido’s jail, and that there is a big probability that Lord Kozouki Oden is still alive.

All interesting probabilities for the Wano Kuni arc!

Question of the Day: Do you believe that Lord Kozouki Oden could still be alive? Will Luffy get a power-up and how will he escape prison? Will Kid help or will he get help from the outside? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.

  1. This is the first time I have read an article from your website. I have find it really interesting. I really like the way you analyze each chapter and show us all the different kinds of possibilities and analysis. I wish I found this earlier. Thank you so much for analyzing the chapters and sharing it with us.

  2. It was strange to read something that I never read before in any kind of way. I never read a manga, and today I read about one of them. It was interesting and strange, and try to understand. I never understand why people like them, but maybe it is because there something unreal, some kind of fantasy that people love. In fact, I am the one that always read fantasy and science fictions novels, because fantasy, for me, seems more real that everyday life.

    I don’t know much about this manga, but I try to answer your questions that you asked below your article. It could be possible that Lord Kozouki Oden is still alive, because something like that happens on fantasy or other kind of novels. I don’t have any idea how Luffy will escape from prison, but maybe it will happen because of his new powers or something like that. 

    Seems that you like a lot what you write about. Keep doing what you do and happiness and success will come your way. Thank you!

    1. Hey Linda, glad you got introduced to the wonderful world of anime and manga. I think people love them because they can escape to a fantasy world with them. Also, the self-development of the characters, the struggle, all the emotional ups and downs. Beautiful artwork (in some of them) is really important as well. But stop reading those manga chapter breakdowns! You’ll get spoiled! Watch the series from the beginning!

  3. very nice theory bro, but I have also a theory about the visitor of Crocus.

    He is the late Captain of the Rumbar Pirates, Captain Yorki 😀
    He has a blonde hair , and was once close to Crocus and of course Laboon 😀
