Oda’s Symbolism behind Zeus and Hera

Advertisements

Zeus, the electric black sheep of the family. Makes it seem like Prometheus was lusting after a Charlotte girl. Unlike Zeus, Hera is in sync with the others allowing a triple threat combo.

If you think about it, we’ve seen Prometheus and Napoleon combine into a flaming sword, but where was the Zeus + Napoleon electric sword? Zeus + Prometheus combo? Zeus was a flawed creation from the start and there may be an explanation for this later, but he was only set on the path to ruin after a thunderball addiction that caused him to turn his back on Big Mom and created a rift between not-so-homies.

I just noticed that Zeus, Prometheus and Napoleon actually represent Big Mom’s personality in a way.
Zeus is an innocent glutton who follows his mother’s dreams. This is same as Big Mom following Carmel’s fake dream.
Prometheus is cunning and opportunistic. He represents the Pirate and business like attitude of Big Mom.

Napoleon is shy among others and yet a force to be reckoned with. He represents the other amnesia induced and still damn strong part of Big Mom.
This chapter Big Mom killed the ‘Zeus’ personality of hers.

Whatever mother mode Big Mom had is now gone and replaced by fury, just like Hera. Quite symbolic of Big Mom’s personality. Also, Zeus has Straw Hats’ kindness just like how O-Lin had in that town from Chopper and others.

Chapter 1013 shows how Big Mom is one of the most well-written Villains ever!

Chapter 1013 highlights the Contrast between Beasts Pirates and Straw Hat Pirates
