Zoro will surpass Oden!

We’ll start with blacksmiths and the principle by which they forge their most prized possessions, as well as the role of the wielder in transforming the blade into a black blade, which is the pinnacle this weapon can achieve. The smiths probably forge blades with the intention not only that their swords accumulate success by satisfying their malice to kill (the sword satisfying its malice) but also that they be tamed and forgotten by their user to become a black blade. . Only then can the smith say that his blade has served its purpose and he has fulfilled his dream of forging the best/one of the best blades in history.

Many people claim that Zoro will not overtake Oden only when he fully masters Enma. Oden’s only “advantage” over the current Zoro is having “tamed” Enma, but he had years for that. To understand Enma and tame it properly so that it has no inconvenience using it. And remember an important dialogue from the last chapter.

Zoro consciously refrained from following his Conqueror’s will. While Enma wants the user to give his all and that’s how he can really tame it. An equal exchange between the sword and its user. It lets Enma feel its full power, and if Enma is satisfied, it allows the user to wield it as it pleases, without holding back, like shrinking its arm or something, because it has the impression that the user did not let enough gas out of the tank. Oden never really had to hold back on his Conqueror’s will and even when he joined Whitebeard and later Roger, he wasn’t their servant but rather a raw muscle addition to the crew. He was doing what he wanted to do. He never put Whitebeard or Roger ahead of his own ambitions.

Oden never fully mastered Enma

Enma didn’t become a Dark Blade during the time Oden had her, and beware, he had Enma for years. He only tamed the sword so that he could use it without holding back, but he didn’t master it so that it exploited its full potential. Oden had more time than Zoro to get to grips with Enma, so it’s obvious he’s tamed it. Zoro hasn’t had this sword for a long time and he’s getting better and better at taming Enma in such a short time.

For Zoro, taming and perhaps later mastering Enma, it will be necessary to understand that he does not need to hold back for the good of Luffy. He can give it his all and that would help Luffy’s dream even more. Enma, as a sword, has its own malice, its own will that has to be done by someone. Oden was the wrong one, he couldn’t accomplish it even after going through so much in his life.

zoro and swordsmen

Will Zoro be the chosen one? Will he finally fulfill Enma’s will and malice and turn her into a Dark Blade? We will have to wait and experience it with our own eyes.
