I know this theory has been thrown around and some people believe that Blackbeard has like an ogre like zoan, hydra like zoan, or chimera like zoan.
I have heard about the parasitic twins theory but I have a huge feeling about Blackbeard being a Cerberus Zoan before he obtained the Yami Yami no Mi Devil Fruit.
Here is a short video where I talked about this theory:
So let’s start with why do i think Blackbeard has the Cerberus Zoan type.
Let’s take a look at what I call the Legend of 3
The original Blackbeard’s real name was Edward Teach but in other parts of the world others called him Edward Thatch
Oda basically grabbed one real life character and turned him into 3 fictional characters:
Edward Newgate (The most badass character in One Piece so far)
Thatch (He has a badass design!)
And of course Marshall D. Teach
I think it’s amazing that Oda went this route. So basically in One Piece Oda has a theme where the number 3 seems to show up a lot when looking into Blackbeard.
Let’s start with his Jolly Roger (which looks like a Cerberus). I believe that Blackbeard had already ate the zoan type devil fruit, of course I also believe that that zoan is a Cerberus.
Blackbeard’s Jolly Roger is strong evidence that this could be true. Have you noticed how his Jolly Roger has 3 skulls, right? Ok let’s move on. I recently noticed that Blackbeard sports 3 flint locks. Hmmm 3….the number 3 shows up again.
