We recently discovered that Zoro can use Conqueror’s Haki, a very rare form of Haki whose users are stated to have the qualities of a king. As of now, this power has laid dormant within Zoro and he is unaware he possesses it; he was first noted to have used it by Kaido after the Emperor was struck by Zoro’s Kyutoryu attack.
Kyutoryu (Meaning “Nine Swords Style”) is the most extreme application of Zoro’s spirit projection abilities. With sufficient anger, a dark aura surrounds him as two full apparitions of his body appear on the sides of his real one, giving him the essence of nine swords.
Zoro first used Kyutoryu after the timeskip against Kaido in conjunction with Busoshoku and Haoshoku Haki. It was powerful enough to inflict a cut deep enough on the Emperor’s immensely tough skin to leave a scar.
Now I was thinking.. what if Zoro was already using Conqueror’s Haki already against Monet? What if Zoro’s “Great Dragon Shock” was using Conqueror’s Haki to overwhelm Monet?
As far as I’m aware this move has only been used once in the manga, vs Monet. According to Tashigi, the attack involves using ‘the fear of his overwhelming power’ and Rayleigh already told us Conqueror’s Haki gives you ‘the power to overwhelm’.
What do you think?
