So last chapter we were all hyped to discover Sanji beginning a fight with King! I feel like this came completely out of left field and isn’t something anyone expected. However, with this event comes many questions.
The obvious one that comes to mind is, who will Zoro fight? I definitely don’t think Oda would make his main opponent be someone like Jack, which leads to the idea that he may be fighting Queen. However, Queen isn’t really the kind of character that would make an interesting fight for Zoro. I personally believe Zoro and Sanji will be teaming up to fight King, and will likely have a fight over who exactly gets credit for said defeat.
That isn’t what my theory is about though. It’s pretty clear Jack’s opponents will be the Minks considering the rivalry he and said group have formed, plus Jack isn’t really the kind of character that should be getting a big one on one fight.
So again we circle back to Queen. Unlike Jack, Queen most certainly will be getting a one on one fight. He’s seemingly the 3rd strongest member of the crew, it’d be foolish to not have it happen. So, who will Queen be fighting in Wano? Maybe Jinbe or Marco or possibly Perospero?
No, Queen won’t be fighting an enemy. He’ll be fighting someone on his own team. I believe Queen’s fight in Wano is Who’s Who
Let’s see the basis of my theory! The Tobiroppo were introduced 10 chapters ago in 978, aptly named Introducing the Tobiroppo. While we barely see said crew with the exception of the last few pages, there’s a lot to see.
In the upper page Ulti brings up that she thinks Queen is better off gone, and Who’s Who asks what would happen if Queen was to die suddenly. Black Maria asks Who’s Who if he himself thinks he would be the next All Star. X Drake says he isn’t interested and Sasaki is thankful, saying he’d be happy if X Drake didn’t participate, and the same goes for Page One. This indicates that Sasaki likely thinks his only rivals in this are Who’s Who and Black Maria, though we know Black Maria isn’t interested.
The full spread of the Tobiroppo shows Who’s Who referring to Page One and Ulti as brats, and asking them to be quiet. In this chapter we learn two things about Who‘s Who, he’s interested in what happens if Queen drops dead and he’s an impatient man.
In the next chapter King summons the Tobiroppo in Kaido’s name, which pisses off Who‘s Who and Sasaki.
