Warning: content revealed for One Piece Episode 4 BillionOne of the most explosive theories in A pieceabout Red Hair Shanks, has just been confirmed. Many fans believe that Shanks is actually a descendant of the Celestial Dragons, the evil nobles that rule the One Piece world, and new information from series author Eiichiro Oda seems to confirm this to be true. Shanks’ past is shrouded in mystery, beyond the fact that as a child, he was an apprentice aboard the legendary Pirate King Gol D. Roger’s ship.
Fans began to theorize about Shanks’ origins when, in chapter 907, he appears in Marijoa in front of the Five Elders, the highest authority of the World Government, asking to talk about “one some pirate.” Marijoa is the most sacred ground of the World Government, it must be an impregnable fortress, and the Five Elders are the highest authority of an organization that wants to exterminate all pirates. Shanks – one of the Yonko, the Yonko – did not stop, but one of the Elders even said: “We only spend time talking because it’s friends.” This only makes sense if Shanks is a Celestial Dragon by lineage, thus receiving special treatment that any other pirate could not have imagined.
One Piece confirms Shanks is a Heavenly Dragon
The series didn’t elaborate on this until One Piece Volume 4 billion, a special pamphlet distributed to attendees of One Piece Film: Red, written by Eiichiro Oda himself. The book explains that Shanks was found as a 1-year-old boy by Gol D. Roger and his crew, hidden in a treasure chest that was looted after their battle in the Valley of the Gods. This, along with a line in the film in which the Five Elders say that Shanks belongs to the “Family Figarland”, seems to confirm that Shanks is in fact a descendant of the Celestial Dragons, the almighty clans held absolute power. authority around the world.
The reason why the “Valley of Gods Incident” remains mysterious is so important is that the manga explains that it was an attack on the Celestial Dragons by the mighty Rocks pirates who were trying to disrupt it. world balance. Taking that opportunity, Roger made an alliance with Marine Garp, and they defeated the Rocks, saving the Celestial Dragons and their slaves that were present. If Shanks is found hidden in a treasure chest, it means that his family tried to hide him from the dangerous Rocks, and he accidentally boarded Roger’s ship, which would define his life. Shanks’ life forever.
Shanks becoming a Heavenly Dragon will have a big impact on One Piece
It is also possible that Shanks was actually the son of a slave of the Heavenly Dragon, or of someone else in the Valley of the Gods, but this does not explain his interactions with the Five Elders, nor why they know his last name. This isn’t the first time the One Piece fan theory has been confirmed, as Eiichiro Oda is a master at predicting and leaving relevant clues for fans. Although it is unusual to reveal such important information outside of the manga, foot‘ true nature like a celestial dragon will definitely have a great impact on A piece and its story.
