In chapter 941 we see Brook enters the house in the Northern Cemetery, and is shocked to see people inside, not noticing Zoro among them at first. When he notices Zoro, he is shocked as Hiyori is laying on his chest.
So I just got this ridiculous idea but the more I thought about it, the more it made sense!! I think Hyori will fall head over heels for Zoro in Wano! It completes the Monster Trio pairs!
1- Luffy & Boa Hancock
Originally antagonistic towards him, Hancock saw Luffy as a man who, being immune to his charms despite seeing her naked, could not be allowed to exist. She also thought he was just like all men in the world, selfish and arrogant, but was proven wrong and was even moved by his acts of selflessness. Boa hates the evil in men but found Luffy to be pure.
As such, due to Luffy’s bravery, selflessness and kind heart, Hancock has fallen in love with Luffy, causing her to have “Love Sickness”, which was the cause of death of nearly all of the previous Empresses.
However, Elder Nyon says that all of the previous Empresses died because they tried to suppress their feelings by distancing themselves from their object of desire, whereas Hancock will survive by going with Luffy.
2- Sanji & Charlotte Pudding
When Big Mom formed a plan to assassinate the Vinsmoke Family, Pudding readily agreed to act as a willing bride-to-be for Sanji.
However, Pudding has fallen in love with Sanji due to his kindness and being the first (and only) to ever say something nice about her third eye.
As a child, Pudding was abused and ridiculed because of her third eye. Under her mother’s rule, she decided to cover her eye with her hair. Linlin’s tyranny made Pudding feel like her mother’s puppet. When Sanji became the first person in her life to say anything nice about her third eye, Pudding became emotional and even broke down in genuine tears, showing her true personality and preventing her from following her mother’s instructions to kill Sanji.
Motivated by her newfound feelings, she even turned on her mother for his sake and began to actively assist the Sanji Retrieval Team in escaping Whole Cake Island.
3- Zoro & Kozuki Hiyori
Hiyori was introduced as a greedy and materialistic woman, as well as a good manipulator. After successfully swindling her victims, she treated them very coldly without any compassion or remorse, saying that she despises the poor. However, it is revealed that the men she swindled were guilty of highly immoral acts, indicating that she is more noble than she seems.
While being chased by Kamazo, Hiyori let go of her selfish attitude, pleading for Zoro to help her and Toko. She is very gracious, as she was extremely grateful to Zoro for saving her.
After Zoro saved her from Kamazo, Hiyori healed his injuries and thanked him, speaking to him in a grateful manner. She even trusts him enough to reveal her own identity to him.
Interesting pattern is that all of these used to be thots and “evil” characters when introduced but completely changed in the presence of their love!
