Warning: SPOILERS for Chapter #1082 of One PieceA piece fans can be happy to know that sabo still alive, but Luffy’s brother could bear the brunt of being responsible for countless deaths. Sabo survived the Lulusia country being wiped out because he wasn’t on the island, but he was the reason the country was attacked in the first place.
Chapter #1082 of One Piece reveals that Sabo is still alive, following his apparent death in chapter #1060 when a mysterious weapon (possibly the Uranus Ancestral Weapon) destroyed the country of Lulusia in a war big attack. Sabo says he wasn’t actually in Lulusia at the time of the attack, which is how he survived. However, in chapter #1060, the Five Elders (and Im-sama) decide to attack the country after intercepting Sabo’s call to the Revolutionary Army’s base and identifying it as coming from Lulusia, this causing that massive retaliation. This means that Sabo is responsible for the deaths of everyone on the island.
Sabo could be responsible for the death of an entire nation
Considering that Sabo returned to the Revolutionary Army base on a Lulusian ship full of people wanting to join their army, it’s possible that when he made the call, he was already on board. Looking back at the scene in chapter #1060, Sabo sees light coming from the sky, which means he was close enough to Lulusia, possibly in the waters surrounding the island, he left not long ago. Lulusia is a country that, just before the attack, rebelled against the World Government under the leadership of the Revolutionary Army, so it’s possible that Sabo will return to base with some recruits.
However, chapter #1060 makes it clear that Sabo is not using any means to jam his call signal, making it easy for the Marines to track it down (who even call Sabo) is ‘reckless’ for that). This is a big mistake. As chapter #1082 suggests, if Sabo is still near Lulusia when he makes the call, the Marines assume he is on the island, which then becomes the target of any weapons of mass destruction. which Im-sama released. Having so many deaths in conscience should be a terrible burden for Sabo, but he doesn’t really show it in chapter #1082.
One Piece Will Have to Explain Sabo’s Responsibility During the Lulusia Incident
However, it is possible that Sabo is not responsible for what happened to Lulusia. In chapter #1060, when the Five Elders learned that Sabo was in Lulusia, one of them commented that “He is an unlucky man”, another added: “No, this is fate.” The impression was that the attack on Lulusia was decided (perhaps to punish them for rebelling), and Sabo just happened to be in the wrong place and at the wrong time. Until this detail is fully explained, A piece fans would be right to think that Sabo has a huge body count to accommodate.
