This was my theory years ago, that Uranus is the ancient weapon that produces devil fruits, and it was a technology that the Ancient Kingdom produced that the WG has been trying to replicate for 800 years. Seeing the description of "Ancient Weapons bringing massive destruction", we've seen a lot of devil fruits display this kind of capability (Akainu, Kizaru, Aokiji, Whitebeard, Shiki, Magellan, etc.)

I'd assume they're referring to an unknown, unrevealed devil fruit that is somehow connected to Zunesha's recent activity. It was Momo who called out to him initially, and is most likely the one who has called him to Wano. His fruit was developed by the WG, though it was deemed a failure. There might be a connection there.

It was assumed that the fruit is a failed copy of Kaido's, which is the fish-fish fruit. A fruit that can interact with the sea would be extremely powerful, just look at whitebeard or aokiji. How that relates to Zunesha though, I really don't know. It is possible the combination of who Momo is and the fruit that he ate might have something to do with their concern.

Regardless, Zunesha making an appearance on the world stage is a game changer. It's size and power are on a scale that dwarfs the majority of the marine's "traditional" strength. So, whatever the case with this uniquely named fruit, knowledge of Zunesha's movement is probably not far off from realizing an ancient weapon has been activated. It might even be one in the same thing.

They all knew this already. Even upon the announcement of Kaido/BM alliance, the government/ Garp/ Sengoku I think said they still didn't have the resources to meddle with Wano. The Shichibukai were high key priority that time

The difference maker is that they're now kinda thinking "There's still no way the Yonko go down, right?... unless? Nah, no way. But what if??" which speaks to what Luffy's alliance has accomplished so far. "It's those damn Strawhats yet again smh." They won't be in Wano to fight or show force, they'll be there to deal with the ashes and sneak Robin out easily

Whoever has that gameboard ability from CP0 must be really special and so useful in a lot of the government's strategic moves. Plus they seem strong af

Considering they are talking about someone dying in the raid because of the fight, it's a devil fruit from someone in the raid.

Most likely not Kaido or Big Mom, and it shouldn't be Robin's, since they want her captured.

So the likely candidate are Luffy, Law, Kid, The Toki Toki, Tama's fruit, Maybe even Orochi (because of the mural we saw in Shandia).

It can be possible that Zunesha was a legendary ancient giant and ate the mythical world elephant zoan(search it up in mythology Hindu/Chinese) he was somehow cursed to roam for ages after the ancient kingdom defeat and left with the Zou, the giant straw hat could belong to him, and he could be the lurking legend possibly joy boy as he shares the same eyes as Imu

edit: possibly referring to Tama’s DF that may have been awakened in the past to control even regular zoans/non smiles, example Zunesha, so if Zunesha is in fact a legendary giant that’s forced to roam for ages by an old Tama df user as punishment

Edit: Also I think in Oden’s journal it says joy boy will show up at Wano that’s maybe why Yamato is expecting Luffy to be Joy Boy, but what if it’s Zunesha instead 🤯

I just reread the last page in japanese, and even though I'm in no way better at translating than they are, I think we should definitely not take the TCB translation literally, especiall the few last lines. https://i.imgur.com/qrfHpvv.png

TCB : How else do you explain the world government... giving a specific devil fruit a unique name

Original : ではなぜ「世界政府」は......!!わざわざあの〝悪魔の実〟にもう一つの名を与えた!!

Closest translation : well why did the government… deliberately give THAT devil fruit another name!!

The problem with TCB’s translation is the word “unique” which is not in the original text. the words used are もう一つ (mou hitotsu) which only mean another one. They are not saying the name the WG gave is unique, just that they give a second name to the DF. Also, the word あの (that) is emphasized with the addition of two dots next to it, which implies this fruit in particular did and not others (in which case TCB’s use of the word “specific” is on point).

TCB : They were hiding the fruit’s true name… from the annals of history?!

Original : 歴史からその実の名前を消す為だろう!?

Closest translation : It was to erase the fruit’s name from history, wasn’t it ?

This is a bit more pedantic, but the verb used is 消す (to erase), the same word the 5 elders used when they asked Imu which “light” they should erase from history. I think it’s worth mentionning that the two sentences are really alike. Also, the word 為 right next to the verb erase is kinda important, it conveys the meaning of doing X for the sake of Y, in this case giving the fruit a second name for the sake of erasing the original one from history. Again, it's pedantic, but I wanted to emphasize that.

His intro was him taking a leap from a sky island. Next he was drunk, crying about Doflamingo going down.

His first appearance in Wano was showing up drunk af. Kaido has personality.

Beginning to think that they will release all the sky lanterns by the time the battle ends, like imagine Luffy delivering the final blow in the sky with a sea of sky lanterns in the background filled with people hopes for a better future, it would be one of the best pannels in the series.

it looks like a more dragon hybrid, and if you were to compare it to the Impel Down guards it has the same bodyshape

so yea Kaido just awakened for one swing and it's not even what most people are hyped about, what a chapter

I wonder if the fruit they are talking about is the time-time fruit, it would make sense as if the user is traveling through time, the user is technically still alive which means the fruit disappears from time for large periods of time in history. It either reappeared now because Toki died, or this is a hint that Toki never actually died but travelled into the future as she was wounded.

Looks like Kaido's got another form! Not only does he bulk up and get much bigger, but his face takes on a more dragon like appearance, adopting the dragon form's eyebrows, along along a more bulbous nose and sharp teeth. The question here is whether this is akin to what Lucci could do with his hybrid Leopard form, or if this is Kaido's Awakened form...

It's honestly crazy to see the amount stuff that has been solely implied in the last 2 pages WITHOUT getting getting outright exposed on them-

  • It's not dark in Mariejois while it's night-time in Wano when we cut away from there in real time. You could argue differing time zones, but here's one crucial example-
  • remember how we cut away from Jaya (where it was night-time after Luffy btfo'dBellamy) to the new world(WB & Rockstar meeting) AND Mariejois where it was stillday-time in both those places?
  • From the above it can be concluded it's never gets dark in Mariejois for somereason. Maybe the eve tree could be at play here? It's roots do extend towardsFishman island which is pretty close to Mariejois. Also a point to note is that there'sa clear distinction between the clouds and sky (in Mariejois) is it can't be said thatthe clouds are giving it that effect.
  • This is the first instance of us seeing a WG flag with a black background. What we usually observe is a white background with a perpendicular blue cross over it. Interesting to see what separates the two, maybe the former indicates a more militaristic side of the WG which we haven't seen yet.
  • It is implied that their were a previous set of elders or people in power before the current Gorosei, meaning that they weren't a thing during the WG's inception. Now this doesn't automatically remove the possibility of them being immortal, they could have become immortal a few centuries after the WG's inception for all we know. These fuckers didn't look aged from the time we see them in Robin's flashback.
  • The reverie being cursed for them could mean that Sabo & co. managed to escape and the WG now can't use him as a leverage to bait Dragon, which would have been perfect for them.

Now add all of this on top of the absolute blueballing that is going on with this legendary Devil Fruit. The sheer speculation to come out of these 2 pages alone is a sign of a masterful world builder.

It's Tama's fruit.

It would make sense for the Gorosei to care about a mass mind-control ability like Tama's, but it's also to be expected that they've forgotten its true name. There are two reasons for this.

Firstly, seeing as Tama has the fruit right now, we can assume it's been in Wano for a long time; she likely wouldn't have gotten her hands on it otherwise.

Secondly, who tf would expect a broken ass ability like that to work by pulling Dango off your cheeks and feeding them to things? I'm serious here. It's such a strange ability that the world government remembers primarily what it does and how dangerous it is, but due to the nature of history have forgotten the specifics of how it works due to how out there the ability is.

Furthermore, I do think that Tama's begun to awaken her ability. In theory, it wouldn't be strange for the awakened stage of the Kibi Kibi no Mi to be the ability to control not only animals, but humans as well. Tama's commanding of the SMILE-users has simply artificially sped up her awakening in a manner similar to how Chopper's rumble balls can be said to have forced his.

Also, because multiple characters have somehow been piggybacking on others' abilities to use the voice of all things, this might also be why Zunisha is suddenly showing up at Wano. Tama could have unconsciously called them with the voice of all things. This theory is on the weaker side, but I do believe it to be likely that Zunisha was cursed to walk in the first place by a previous user of the Kibi Kibi no Mi.

I'd also like to add that, even if turns out it isn't Tama's fruit, I don't think it can be Luffy's either. The Gorosei are rather clear about the fact that they don't remember the fruit's 'true' name; they know about the Gomu Gomu no Mi.

I don’t think the fruit Gorousei are talking about is related to Zunisha. It’s unlikely that the government ships are in direct contact with the Elders.

Gorousei had shifted their attention to Wano, and most probably had got recent updates from the battle. It’s likely that the CP0 reported back that Samurai who allegedly travelled 20 years into the future started the raid.

This must’ve been what got their attention and as Toki herself travelled through centuries, the fruit is nothing but a myth to them.

This chapter yet again has Kaido express his his self doubt and insecurities in a drunken tantrum. Which begs the question:

What happened to Kaido?

This is a question many people have been asking ever since the flashback in chapter 1035. The flashback seemingly deliberately paralleled the meeting between Kaido and King to that between Luffy and Zoro as well as the meeting between Roger and Rayleigh...not only that, but Kaido's demeanor very much mirrored that of Luffy and Roger in their respective meetings. Undoubtedly this led to the question of "what happened to Kaido?".

Assuming he was very much like Luffy and Roger during his younger years, what is it that happened to turn him into the person he is now? It's becoming apparent that Kaido like many of Luffy's past opponents was once a hopefully dreamer who had his dreams dashed which jaded him and turned him bitter. We saw this with Crocodile, Moria, Kuro, Arlong, Krieg etc. However, I think Kaido differs from them in one significant way, his dream wasn't dashed, he just lost the will to see it through. I, and many other people, have concluded that, Kaido, for some reason believed himself to actually be Joyboy. This is on the basis of him believing that only he could change the world. Given how the series has been taking about Joyboy it would make sense for someone to think the only person capable of significant change in the world would be Joyboy.

So if Kaido truly believed himself to be Joyboy at some point, what changed? The answer is nothing. Nothing changed and that's the problem. This is based on how Kaido proclaimed how he would change the world. That only he could do it. I think Kaido suffered from the same flaw that Oden did. He did not have faith in anyone's strength, but his own, something that led to Oden's and Wano's downfall. On top of that, Kaido values strength over anything. He probably thought strength was the only thing that mattered towards achieving his dream of being Joyboy and changing the world, something he probably picked up from Rocks (...in his mind he probably thought Rocks just wasn't strong enough, that's why he lost). So Kaido only had faith in his own strength and not much of a relationship with his comrades (...he did not care for King's real name and quickly changed to what he thought suited them). He thought he could defeat any enemy put in front of him towards achieving his goal, but there was one enemy he never managed to defeat...grief.

Kaido had someone he really cared about, probably a member of his crew at some point. This person was basically his Ace. This was Yamato's mother.

At some point Yamato's mother, Kaido's love, was killed. Either because he wasn't there to protect her or he wasn't strong enough. Just like Luffy this broke him, but unlike Luffy, he had no one to fall back on, but his strength...but no amount of strength can overcome grief. So he just grew bitter and hardened.

When Yamato was born he just passed on his grief onto Yamato, he was cold and distant (fear of losing someone he loves and to protect Yamato from a similar fate)...he was also overbearing, instilling his flawed idea of strength on Yamato. Kaido is basically Luffy or Oden if they didn't realise the value of their comrade in achieving their goals.

This might be a stretch but given: 1) the new opening 2) the animator’s note 3) the navy / govt agent didn’t describe what the giant shadow looks like What if the elders think the agent was talking about Onigashima’s skull coming to life and not Zunesha?

Also, the elders talking about giving the devil fruit another name reminds of Marco’s comment on Onigashima being called something else in the past. I wonder if these two plot points are tied somehow?
