Uranus: The Ancient Weapon capable of control Climate in Nami’s Hands


We heard many times that Nami was called a witch but I think there is an another reference to her. I found some interesting connections between her and the Goddess Aphrodite (greek) or Venus (roman).


1.Goddess Aphrodite was born from the foam of the sea, and Nami’s name means wave.

2.Goddess Aphrodite was also the patron deity of mariners, sailors.

  • At times, she was also associated with seafaring and war, according to Encyclopedia Britannica.
  • Aphrodite was associated with the brightest planet, Venus, and this, always a valuable navigational aid, may be another connection with ancient mariners. She is the matron of mariners and sailors.
  • Although scholars have mentioned Aphrodite’s role in navigation, either in discussions of the goddess’ epithets or in general discussions of maritime cults, Aphrodite’s patronage on the sea deserves a more detailed treatment.
  • “In several Hellenistic epigrams, as well as some literary and epigraphic texts from other periods, which have been generally neglected in so far as they reveal Aphrodite’s power to provide safe sailing. The examination of this particular collection of evidence allows me to place Aphrodite among other deities who were venerated for the protection they offered in sea-travel. I show that Aphrodite’s role as a patron deity of seafaring entailed her worship by all those who sailed, including traders and the navy, throughout the Greek world, from the archaic to the Hellenistic period. “

We know that Nami is the navigator of the crew.


3. Aphrodite is also the Goddess of beauty.

  • Aphrodite has been featured in Western art as a symbol of female beauty. There weren’t any man or even Gods who could resist her beauty.
  • And we know that Nami’s happiness punch is so powerful, even Oda said that Happiness Punch is so powerfull compared to Haoshoku Haki or Supreme King’s haki.
  • In SBS Volume 74 Oda replied to a fan who asked how many people can Nami’s Happiness Punch take out (since Luffy’s Conqueror’s Haki can take out 50,000 people): Oda: “Oho–. I see. This is tough showdown, isn’t it. Well let’s see, if we were to talk about these two using their techniques with their own bodies alone, Nami’s Happiness Punch would only work among “visible range”, so it would probably not be able to compete against Luffy’s Haki. However, if we are allowed to take the usage of Visual Den Den Mushi into consideration, Luffy’s Haki will not be able to convert into willpower-radio waves, but Nami will be able to attack various locations around the world at once, and thus victory would become Nami’s. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the “Happiness Punch” also deals a great amount damage to one’s wallet as it requires the payment of 100,000 belis per person, and in this way, it can be confirmed that this attack is a great deal nastier than Haki in general.

4.The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

  • This is a famous painting (maybe the most famous) about Venus. In this painting Venus has a red/orange hair.
  • In Primavera (an another painting) by Botticelli , we also can see Venus in an orange grove. Venus presides over the garden – an orange grove (a Medici symbol). It is also the Garden of the Hesperides of classical myth, from which the golden apples used in the Judgement of Paris came; the Hellenistic Greeks had decided that these were citrus fruits, exotic to them.

5. Orange as the golden apple in myth

  • In many languages, the orange is referred to as a “golden apple”. For example, the Greek χρυσομηλιά, and Latin pomum aurantium both literally describe oranges as “golden apples”. In later years it was thought that the “golden apples” of myth might have actually been oranges, a fruit unknown to Europe and the Mediterranean before the Middle Ages.
  • In the story of the Judgement of Paris, Aphrodite got the golden apple from Paris.

King – The Former Warden of Impel Down

Oda made a lot of intentional parallels between Zoro and Oden during Wano Arc!
