Secret’The man marked by the fire‘ or ‘Man with burn scar‘ is being built as one of the most important characters in A piece‘s Final Saga, which naturally led to many fan theories about his identity. Since he was first mentioned, fans have flocked to every page of the epic series for clues about the mysterious character’s true identity. With little evidence to go on, making firm conjectures about his identity can be difficult, but the quest is well worth it as he is said to possess the ultimate Road Poneglyph.
Road Poneglyphs are four stones that will allow a crew to learn the location of Laugh Tale, the island containing One Piece. As a result, many of the pirates in the series are pursuing it, including Kid, Law, and Luffy. It makes sense that Kid was the first to mention the ‘Man with the Burning Scar’, who owns One Piece’s last Road Poneglyph and thus can find Roger’s treasure in chapter #1056. After that point, the series has gradually revealed more hints about this man’s identity and narrowed him down to a few likely people. These are the most convincing theories as to who the ‘Man Marked by the Flame’ could be.
This is the theory that has the least amount of practical evidence behind it, but it’s still somewhat plausible. Scopper Gaban is a high-ranking member of Gol D. Roger’s epic pirate crew, who seems to have the same level of prominence as Silvers Rayleigh, Roger’s first mate. Given the influence other former Rogers pirates like Rayleigh and Shanks have had on One Piece’s story, it makes sense for Scopper to appear either way. Given that he’s been to Laugh Tale before, that also means he’s in possession of one of the main hints on how to get there.
However, this theory also has some major flaws. Having been to Laugh Tale, there’s no reason why Scopper would be interested in getting hold of one of the Road Poneglyphs. Also, although Scopper may have suffered burns after the Rogers Pirates disbanded, he has had no burns in any of his previous appearances, which makes this theory even more confusing than one. several other hypotheses.
Jaguar D. Saul
Saul is a hugely important character in Robin’s tragic story, telling her to run away when the Marines destroy Ohara. He probably died in that Buster Call, frozen by Aokiji and left to die on the flaming island, but recent chapters have provided new evidence that he may be alive. In chapter #1066, Vegapunk mentions that after the Buster Call, a group of giants from Elbaf led by a captain wrapped in bandages recovered many of the books from the Ohara library. Since Saul is a giant and was on Ohara when it was destroyed, this implies that he survived the Buster Call with some severe burns and returned with a crew to preserve the ancient knowledge that is there.
Given that the Oharas are researching on the Void Century, the source of the Road Poneglyphs, it wouldn’t be surprising if they possessed one of those stones. If the bandaged captain is indeed Saul, this will get him the Road Poneglyph Kid mentioned. Also, in search of the ‘Man Marked by the Flame’, Kid goes to Elbaf, where Saul may be. Finally, when ‘The Man with the Burning Scar’ was first mentioned in chapter #1056, Oda showed a reaction scene of Robin, who has a deep personal connection to Saul.
Monkey D. Dragon
The most recent mention of ‘The Man with the Burn Scar’ indicates that it is Monkey D. Dragon, the father of Luffy’s Revolutionary. Most of the evidence for this comes from the conversation between the Blackbeard Pirates in Chapter #1081. During that discussion, Lafitte mentions that the ‘Man with the Burn Scar’ is said to be traveling on a completely black ship and anyone who comes close to it is swallowed up by a giant vortex. This closely corresponds to Dragon, whose ship Wind Grand is also completely black. Many fans also speculate that his Devil Fruit has something to do with weather control, which will help him create the tornadoes Lafitte mentioned.
Dragon’s distinctive face tattoo can also be mistaken for a burn scar, which would make him look like the ‘Man Marked by Flame’. Alternatively, if the Revolutionary Army took control of one of the Road Poneglyphs, they could prevent the World Government from declaring it to keep the buried Empty Century a secret. The big flaw in this theory is that if the Revolutionary Army had had the final Road Poneglyph, they could have given it to Robin, who would tell Luffy about it. However, Robin’s reaction when Kid mentioned ‘The Man with the Burning Scar’ in chapter #1056 could be because she knew he was talking about Dragon.
A brand new character
While it would make sense for ‘The Man Marked by the Flame’ to be a previously introduced character given how interconnected the worlds of One Piece are, it is also possible that they are a complete character. all new. Many fans will find this result disappointing as the ‘Man with the Burning Scar’ hints are suitable for characters like Dragon and Saul. However, One Piece has revealed various powerful characters such as Holy Knights and Vegapunks in the series’ Final Saga, meaning this is an important possibility that fans should consider.
In the end, based on how great the Final Saga revelations have been so far, whoever the ‘Man Marked by the Flame’ turns out to be, is sure to leave you satisfied. The fact that despite being mentioned only a few times, fans have been able to create many plausible theories about the identity of ‘The Man with the Burning Scar’ shows just how complicated the world of One Piece is. as well as the dedication of the fans. If any of these theories are true, then ‘The man marked by the fire‘ will serve a much more important role in A pieceThe story of more than just controlling a Poneglyph.
