Warning, Spoiler! Today we explore a theory that should make a lot of talk, and which puts at the center of the plot a Gold Roger in mastermind mode, at the origin of the outbreak of Joy Boy, who has returned after 800 years of disappearance!
That’s it, the World Government’s worst fears have finally come true with this chapter 1044, in which Luffy has awakened his fruit – asleep for 800 years -, fruit which was in fact a mythical zoan Hito Hito no Mi, model Nika. This awakening makes him the new reincarnation of Joy Boy, who is known to be the ultimate terror of the powerful of this world, who can lead the revolution that will free the seas from the embrace of the Tenryubito. But if one could suspect that the hero of the manga would be the leading character of the war against the dictatorship of Gorosei and Ym-Sama, the fact that the Gomu Gomu no Mi fell into his hands would not ultimately be due to chance, but the fruit of the machinations of… Gold Roger!
In effect, when arriving on Laugh Tale, Gold Roger has learned everything about the lost century, the identity of Joy Boy, and therefore its particular fruit, the now “Hito Hito no Mi model Nika”! Since this discovery, we have seen him prepare his death well, scattering his crew and going to the Navy to launch the great era of piracy. He also had time to have a child with Portgas D. Rouge, a child he had presented to his crew as potentially being the child of the prophecy. We can thus imagine that he also took into account the existence of the Hito Hito no Mi model Nika, and that he asked his young boy Shanks, whom he considered his successor, to find it, to give it to the one who should be Joy Boy.
A fruit destined… for Ace?
A hypothesis which would thus explain the presence of Roux on the island of Dawn at the very beginning of the manga, the latter pointing to this island in order to give the mythical fruit to the one he thought was the child of the prophecy, namely Portgas D. Ace, the child of his captain the Pirate Lord. It must indeed be remembered that Ace, Sabo and Luffy were raised together on this island of East Blue. Shanks, informed of this presence, would thus have sailed to this small territory. But, and here it is Oda’s destiny that speaks, the zoan fruits having “their own will” according to the very words of the Gorosei, the Hito Hito no Mi model Nika would have thwarted these plans, and would have given himself to its real owner, also present on the island: Monkey D. Luffy.
The rest of the story is known.
