A piece is generally known for its great flashbacks, but one of the most important characters, Zoro, there’s actually a pretty impressive one. Many fans expect author Eiichiro Oda to correct this weak plot in Wano, the same way he added Sanji’s past in Whole Cake Island. Unfortunately, while Wano did have a big impact on Zoro, it didn’t really make his past that much better.
Wano remains one of the best installments in the series, filled with epic moments, big powers for the Straw Hats, and great lore revelations. It even has its own great flashback after Kozuki Oden as he travels with the Roger Pirates. But one of the more disappointing aspects of this part is that it leaves some mysteries unsolved, such as the identity of a mysterious relative of Zoro from Wano seen in Yamato’s flashback. . Many people think that this man along with Wano’s general focus on swords means that this installment will also dig into the Straw Hat swordsman’s past even more than the original.
Zoro’s flashback lacks the emotional depth of other flashbacks in One Piece
When first introduced in East Blue, Zoro had a very simple flashback. As a child, he befriended the daughter of a local swordsman who became his rival. He had promised her that he would become the strongest swordsman in the world. Unfortunately, she falls down the stairs and dies leaving Zoro alone to fulfill their vows. This is of course sad, but it lacks the brutal cruelty of many of One Piece’s later flashbacks and it’s too short to be truly satisfying. This has led fans to speculate that there is more behind his story than what catches the eye and the best place to reveal that would be in Wano.
Interestingly, Zoro had a very brief flashback in Wano, remembering a swordsmith he once knew in his village. While this reveals who forged Zoro’s sword and his connection to Wano, it doesn’t really do anything to add emotional weight to his story or further explain his past. his. Oda further explained Zoro’s family connection to Wano during an SBS, revealing that he is related to the man in Yamato’s flashback, but the reality is that this happens outside of the story. shows how unimportant it is to the overall plot of the series. Given the emotionally strong nature and relevance to the plot of some of the other Straw Hats’ backstories like those of Robin or Brook, it makes Zoro’s relative unimportantness extremely disappointing.
Zoro’s past is still a major weak point in the plot of One Piece
Of course, One Piece isn’t over yet, so Oda could return to Zoro’s storyline at some point in the future. Perhaps that rediscovery could solve some of the series’ oldest mysteries, such as why Tashigi looks like Kuina, Zoro’s deceased friend. But the reality is A piece didn’t delve deeper into Zoro’s past in the part most closely related to him making it less likely Zorohis plot will never improve, unfortunately he left him with the worst flashback of the series.
