This is a post i have been meaning to write for a long time. I believe it probably is the most complete theory about one piece, concerning important topics as the inherited will, the void century and what all blue and one piece really are.
We have only barely mentioned some relevant ideas in our following posts, who serve as complementary reading to this one, although you could skip them without missing too much, if you are familiar to the topics. However, i don’t want to be too repetitive, so i will link to them when needed. Complementary reading –> Raftel theory, All Blue, Void Century, Voice of All Things. Note: Some of them are my early posts, so
forgive my writing and their short length :).
Void Century One Piece
Let’s start with some necessary background. Void Century in One Piece is called a period in history, about which the public knows nothing or almost nothing about. All pieces of evidence regarding what happened then, seem to have been erased from the face of the world.
The only ones who know what truly happened then, are Gol D Roger and his pirate crew, who have read the poneglyphs. The poneglyphs all around the world describe the true history of the Void Century. But more on them later. What we do know about the Void Century, is that a certain Ancient Kingdom used to reign all over the world. We know that from the Oharan archaeologist Professor Clover.
The World Government’s rise
What the Oharan told us, is that the ancient kingdom had a certain enemy. As a result, a war happened between the kingdom and them, which resulted in the enemy’s win. They wiped out everything that had to do with the ancient kingdom from the face of history. The Void Century ended and the organisation we all know as the World Government was established. Was that a coincidence, or is the World Government the enemy of the kingdom, who erased every trace of it in history?
There are three things that cannot be stopped, Men’s Dream, The flow of time,a nd inherited will. As long as people continue to seek the true meaning of freedom, they will never cease to be!
Gol D Roger, the Pirate King
Roger’s quote has a deep meaning embedded into it. It’s not just random cool stuff. Here’s why.
The project of One Piece
The ancient kingdom was really prosperous. As a result, they developed a certain ambition, which was to unite all four seas. They wanted to make a big, prosperous ocean, so that all the people could have access to the vast sea. For that reason, they had to destroy the Red Line and the Grand Line. To accomplish that, they created some powerful weapons, the so called ancient weapons, Pluton, Uranus and Poseidon.
Unfortunately, their plan wasn’t received the same by everyone. Twenty other kingdoms opposed them and united in order to beat them. A huge war happened and the opposing kingdoms emerged victorious, becoming the world government. The ancient kingdom’s dream didn’t die though. The project of One Piece, or All Blue, Sanji’s dream, was inherited by Gol D Roger himself, but how?
We have talked about the poneglyphs before, but what i want to stress today is how and why they were made. The ancient kingdom was anticipating its downfall, aka the passage of time in Roger’s quote. As a result, they took measures to ensure their dream, their project wouldn’t die, should they lose the war.
And that’s how the pieces connect. That’s exactly how the Pirate King inherited the ancient kingdom’s project. They wrote the true history of the world, in the pieces of stone now known as poneglyphs. Gol D Roger with his crew managed to decipher them, not to mention the fact that they were the ones who were able to access all of them, since reaching Raftel.
What Raftel really is
We have talked about possibilities regarding Raftel again in the past. What i want to stress now, is what i think Raftel really is, related to today’s theory. I believe that it is the capital of the Ancient Kingdom. They somehow managed to conceal its location and save it from the wrath of the World Government. All their secrets are there, Roger discovered them and the next Pirate King, aka Luffy :P, will also inherit them after reaching it ;).
The Golden Age of Pirates
The inherited will of the Ancient Kingdom reached Roger after 800 years. Unfortunately, he didn’t have the health to bring the plan to fruition. Thus, he created the Golden Age of Pirates, in order to pass down the plan to someone else. And who is better than the one who would come to be named the next Pirate king? Monkey D Luffy?
The will of the D
It has been talked about again and again. I believe the will of the D is the will of the ancient kingdom, the inherited will Roger talked about. It can either come from the Descendants of the kingdom or the shape of a smile as many have speculated. Whatever the case may be, the will of the D has to do with the ancient kingdom and its project.
How it will play out in the end
Luffy will be the one to inherit the will, the project of One Piece. To create the united ocean, where everyone can roam and leave peacefully, fishmen and simple men together, the All Blue. What he will have to do, is destroy the spot where Mariejois is, the same place fishman island is. The place where the Reverse Mountain is, making an X, the symbol of the treasure. That is where Luffy must strike using some ancient weapon.
That way, the seas will fuse into one, Mariejois will be destroyed and the fishmen will have to come out and live together with the other people, since their island will be no more. Madam Shirley’s prophecy will come out to be true, since Luffy will destroy fishman island. Also, Joy Boy’s promise will happen, because he is the king of the ancient kingdom. But that is another post altogether.
So, this was our most complete theory about one piece. We introduced many concepts today, so further posts will try to clarify even further. Hope you liked what you read.
