A character turning out to be a woman trope is dying out on me. Still I like it!

u/MightySamurai96 22h ago

Yeah it’s boring too many trashy female characters in one piece

u/Kpng11 1d ago

Nobody else find it weird how vegapunk is suppose to be the trump card and genius of the world government but they just let him reside and research on a random island called egg head in the middle of nowhere where he can be abducted or attacked by pirates?

u/Acceptable-Tie-1745 Pirate 5h ago

Theres a freaking marine base besides.

u/Kpng11 1d ago

Isn't he supposed to be chained up in some underground bunker guarded by a billion weapons like in movies

u/EffBO94 2d ago

don't know why but i never considered Vegapunk to look like that lmao...actually i reckon that's not Vegapunk at all, maybe his granddaughter or something, looks too young

"oh that's just how i look when I'm totally free!" lol why's Luffy talking like he knows what his devil fruit really is when in reality he's totally oblivious and doesn't know at all haha, strange. wonder if Jinbe's gonna tell him about what Who's who told him

"I came alone" yeah that reminds me, Bonney lost her crew to Blackbeard/Akainu just before the timeskip didn't she? and we've heard nothing from them since...she's been on her own for a long time now, kinda sad.

wonder when exactly Bonney's gonna be like "yeah btw i was there at Mariejois when it all went down at the Reverie with your brother lol, we busted Kuma out together and everything(at least I'm pretty sure that's what they did, oda pls confirm)" luffy will flip out hahaha, speaking of which we better get a full flashback of everything that happened during Reverie Oda! don't skimp on the details now! especially my headcannon of a Sabo and Bonney team up to rescue Kuma haha, bet it was Bonney who tried to kill Carlos too

we in the part of One Piece again where we have literally no clue what island we going to next and it's awesome, never would I have thought we'd be seeing Vegapunk right after Wano, it's great. exposition arc on Egghead Island here we come :)

u/ClayAndros 2d ago

You’re dropping a slight spoiler with your first part even though you seem to be trying to avoid it,

On the Luffy part he says that because he probably feels the most free in that form, so he says that’s him when hes “most” free.

2

u/EffBO94 1d ago

I'll be honest I wasn't trying to avoid spoilers at all haha, if it was when the early leaks/spoilers first come out I wouldn't mention it, but here surely everyone in this comment section has read the chapter already

Yeah that makes sense about Luffy, thinking about it further I reckon his response might actually have been his carefree way of saying "all I know is I feel totally free in that form, but I don't know what the white hair is about either lol" haha

u/saddingtonbear 2d ago

Luffy finally got to meet his mom in this chapter! (just kidding)

4

u/gerahmurov 2d ago

Other than Zoro-swords-Tashigi, Franky-new tech and the history of Devil Fruits, I personally would like to see in this arc why there is so many pirates somehow connected to Vegapunk. Like how Kuma was in this situation and why he protected Sunny, how Vegapunk obtained Kaido's lineage factor to make a devil fruit and what he thinks about SMILEs. Guess there will be a lot of reveals

9

u/Belt_Pretend 2d ago

Vegapunk could be a family name and everyone in the Vegapunk family could be doctors or scientists. So it’s possible, she’s Dr. Vegapunk but not the one mentioned throughout the story.

1

u/One_Tie900 5h ago

Her shirt does say 02

1

u/Nepu-Tech 9h ago

This is actually a really good idea that makes a lot of sense to me rather than having a random girl be Vegapunk just to subvert expectations. It would also explain why/how Vegapunk seems to be involved in everything

5

u/StyryderX 2d ago

The idea of One Piece reaching the final stretch has always been a surreal news to me, until this chapter. Meeting THE Vegapunk finally make the my mind realize that yes, we are at the End-game.

I literally thought Elbaf is the next adventure but who would've thought it's Egghead! One piece always suprises me just like Vegapunk!

2

u/Ok_Highlight5115 3d ago

Anybody notice Vegapunk’s limbs? Her arms were strangely bendy, almost fluid like, and her boots seem to be heavily reinforced to allow for walking, as if her bones aren’t very sturdy or structured.

3

u/MightySamurai96 3d ago

That was her jacket the sleeves are just to long just like utas jacked

u/pauserror 3d ago

That image of Egghead Island is AMAZING. I get huge Fooly Cooly vibe from it. 500 hundred years in the future huh? This is about the be the sci-fi arc I have been waiting for!

But this is not the first time we have seen a weird egg before. The other one was on Roger's ship... This chapter was amazing. This arc is shaping up to be another banger.

I can't really explain but it really feels Oda is excited that he can start something new after Wano. His art is full of energy and the interactions really have that One Piece feel to it.

Love the portrayal of the Strawhats, and especially how cheery Luffy is. The scene in the previous chapter where he told his dream to his crew made me tear up.

Surprised no one mentioned the trope of an old inventor and his rambunctious granddaughter following in his footsteps for Punk 02.

u/Dbarnes420 21h ago

I think it's garp tbh

2

u/Eraserwolves 4d ago

The genius of Dr. Vegapunk is a Devil Fruit ability?
Perhaps an artificial one, successfully created & mass produced by the original?

6

u/Al-D-Kyda 4d ago edited 4d ago

Maybe franky will finally get his back operated on at the end of the arc.

And why everyone is assuming vegapunk is old and feeble?

4

u/montblanc0 4d ago

Not sure about "feeble", but she talks like an old man, and her suit says PUNK02 so it hints as something artificial, maybe mass produced like Pacifistas

5

u/Al-D-Kyda 4d ago

After being apart of MADS with everyone having their own personal agenda, he probably created a team of him in different shapes an sizes to fill every position and work by himself.

u/Emperor_Luffy 4d ago

I need Tashigi to run into Zoro again. We haven't seen these two interact in so long.

Seriously whether you ship them or not(even though I absolutely do) their banter was delicious to read. I love their back and forth and I need to see them in the same room again.

Plus there has to be some kind of point to this dynamic. I've always wondered where Oda was going with it. So naturally they need more scenes together in order to figure this out.

1

u/Nepu-Tech 9h ago

Who the hell says "delicious to read" lol xD

8

u/Ghooble 4d ago

I wonder if she knows anything about Oden's sword. She'd probably lose her mind if she saw it

5

u/Emperor_Luffy 4d ago

Yeah that sounds about right.

>Zoro & Tashi meet

>Argument ensues

>Midway through she forgets what they were arguing about and starts fussing over his new sword.

Can't wait for the next chapter so all the thirsty neckbeards on here shut up about their "waifus"

You should be complaining about oda too then lol

u/ElectricalCucumber37 4d ago

He goes overboard for my tastes sometimes, but if it was up to this board the entire manga would be hentai.

u/MuchAcanthocephala39 4d ago

Vegapunk or nah, revealing the new character Doll from marines is very nice Oda san 😈

u/Tarpeel_945 4d ago

If vegapunk appears to be a woman in the end it will be freaking bad idea 🤢🤢🤢

Are you an incel or something?

u/Tarpeel_945 4d ago

Till we figure out the real sex of vegapunk you have the right to be asshoole and you appear attacking which make wrong again! 😉

u/burningbarn8 4d ago edited 4d ago

Nah, saying Vegapunk being a woman is a bad idea is incely whether Vegapunk turns out to be a woman or no, literally no reason why Vegapunk being a woman is bad outside of misogyny.

u/Writersface13 4d ago

Don't you just love when Oda shits all over fan theories and predictions...

Fan 1: They're going to Sphinx Island next! It's geographically correct!

Fan 2: Elbaf arc next with the last road poneglyph and Shanks!

Fan 3: Vira because of course!

Oda: Fuck you! Egghead Island!

I love the man.

7

u/CryonautX 4d ago

A lot of people expected vegapunk arc. It was either gonna be vegapunk arc or Elbaf arc after Wano.

5

u/madarauchiha3444 4d ago

What if she really is Vegapunk? She was a teenager during the MADS days and is in her 30s now.

1

u/Nepu-Tech 9h ago

It's obviously an android, clone, or grand daughter made for a cheap cliff hanger because Vegapunk has been active for decades and she looks like a teenage girl.

5

u/Good_Mathematician60 4d ago

Since Bonney is involved and somehow related to the world government age honestly doesn't play a factor.. the world government is very concerned with keeping her captive and the only explanation I can think of is to keep the top tier of the world government IM sama Vega punk.. 5 Elders and Shanks alive forever

2

u/ridansthrowaway 4d ago

Why shanks ? Lmao

2

u/Good_Mathematician60 3d ago

😂 I see somebody caught that lol, dudes got to have some kind of rank in the world government he walked in to a meeting with the 5 Elders and their response wasn't shock or hostility. I got the vibe of what now Shanks? Like him being there is a regular occurrence.

4

u/ridansthrowaway 3d ago

I think that he's a just a big threat ( not in terms of strength ) and too strong to be eliminated

16

u/abhikun 4d ago

Whats so special about Boney

.

Black Beared didn't kill or steal her fruit when he captured her.

.

Getting caught by Akainu of all people, She is unscathe and travels new world again.

.

Reverie meeting still has secrets releated to her.

10

u/reading_maniac Pirate 4d ago

Hell yeah. This. Exactly what i have been thinking. Why is she constantly in the limelight even though she doesn't have any such powers that we know of, that are rare in the OP verse. There is something really big behind this.

4

u/Eraserwolves 4d ago

All we know is her abilities come from a, "currently unnamed Paramecia-type Devil Fruit." We know the name of Luffy's fruit was changed to hide its true power/potential; an unnamed fruit intrigues me.

2

u/Good_Mathematician60 4d ago

Currently un named because she has had such little screen time, un named or not her DF is top tier, I mean she is a walking fountain of youth.

2

u/reading_maniac Pirate 3d ago

yea lol its not like every supernova's df is revealed.
heck even some of them haven't even been confirmed to have DFs.

Luffy is a walking international incident lol

Just imagine the news “ Yonko SH Luffy invades the island of the WG’s leading scientist “

u/L7Z7Z 4d ago

She is Punk 02, so probably one of the “earliest” Punks created by Vegapunk.

12

u/Big-Outside-5247 4d ago

Or his daughter

u/L7Z7Z 3d ago

Or both

u/Battlemaster123 4d ago

oda writing with his left hand and still writing flames

11

u/magicfaeriebattleaxe 4d ago

I’m guess that the Vega-Force involves a group of elite cyborg/human experiments who have had the original Vegapunk’s personality and intellect disseminated among them and the ‘original’ singular Vegapunk now exists in a discorporated form with several bodies. I think the twist will be that the bodies all originally were different people (likely pirates) and are living and unwilling.

4

u/conceptalbum The Revolutionary Army 4d ago

.....like in Naruto?

3

u/magicfaeriebattleaxe 4d ago

Lol did they do this in Naruto? What part are you referencing? Orochimaru?

2

u/conceptalbum The Revolutionary Army 3d ago

It's been a long time but iirc Pain was basically exactly that.

2

u/magicfaeriebattleaxe 3d ago

Weren’t those all corpses tho?

3

u/Dark_Magus 4d ago

If that's what Vegapunk did, it's possible that his (or her) original body died of old age already.

26

u/TheBogard 4d ago

My theory is that there are multiple Vegapunks. Luffy’s group is going to meet a different Vegapunk with a different number on their suit.

4

u/TheBogard 4d ago

I also don’t think Vegapunk with trust anyone with their research/projects but themself. Hence the multiple Vegapunks

19

u/meertatt 4d ago

I like this theory. My other theory is that vegapunk is actually an old dwarf from the Tontatta tribe and he is literally inside this robot woman.

10

u/Dark_Magus 4d ago

That's hilarious enough that it could actually happen.

12

u/Buzzek 4d ago

An old dwarf controlling a robot woman controlling a giant robot is sure a fun idea to imagine, damn

10

u/Kill_Em_Kindly The Revolutionary Army 4d ago

Calling it now, girl Vegapunk is an android or his granddaughter/daughter🤔

-9

u/yiggaman 4d ago

What kinda asspull has Bonney floating in the water in the middle of nowhere lmao

3

u/CryonautX 4d ago

Answered in the manga already. She was going to see vegapunk (likely related to Kuma) and her ship got swallowed by the mechashark.

7

u/bittersaurus 4d ago

She has a connection with Kuma and Kuma with Vegapunk, I have a feeling it has something to do with that.

1

u/AkatsukiRabbit 4d ago

I think what he means, and I could be wrong, is that Bonney being a devil fruit user, is just floating in the water. She wasn't drowning or close to dying. You have to think, how long was she in the water and how long ago did the shark eat her ship? The Straw Hats didn't see it, so it couldn't have happened just then. So she could have been in the water for hours or even days, in a brutal storm no less.

3

u/CryonautX 4d ago

She wasn't floating in the water. She was stuck in the warm eddy. Zoro sliced it which put bonney on the surface of the cut eddy.

1

u/tardo_UK 4d ago

what is a warm eddy?

2

u/CryonautX 4d ago

Did you not read 1060?

1

u/glade1988 4d ago

Lock it in Eddy

-3

u/yiggaman 4d ago

Oh OK so I guess she can just be floating in the water in some random way

2

u/CryonautX 4d ago

When was she floating in the water!?

5

u/ChillOtters Cipher Pol 4d ago edited 4d ago

Not really, she has a reason to meet vega punk and her ship was likely destroyed by the shark similar to what would have happened if vega punk did not come to save the strawhats.

7

u/OkConsideration3179 4d ago

So what if the real Vegapunk is dead and before he died he uploaded his knowledge into that girl who just might be an android?

They are on an island that is hundreds of years more advanced than anywhere else so it's a plausible theory.

6

u/Jaielhahaha 4d ago

Plausible but not as probable as Vegapunk still being alive. Kudos if you're right in the future!

12

u/4banna World Government 4d ago

Love that we get little Gear 5 sprites of Luffy now ehee

6

u/LuckyCosmos 4d ago

I noticed that and am slightly concerned. "That's when I'm free" sounds more like the awakened Zoan fruit speaking through Luffy instead of Luffy himself.

11

u/ChillOtters Cipher Pol 4d ago

Nah he is talking about how he is a lot more flexible and happy. He can do what ever he wants in that form unlike normally he is trapped by the rebound effect.

-11

u/monji7 Slave 4d ago

I am just tired to see new characters designed around figures. All of them are sexy young girls. All those years vegapunk gave the impression of an someone at least in their 30s. How is it make sense ?

Its all i am angry about. I just wanna see more mature characters. I say it here that the king of the world is some young kid also. He/she probably loves luffy also but forced to be the king or something. Ilove to eat the same cliche shit at this point

3

u/Hot_Pair9762 4d ago

there's 02 written on her shirt so she's probably vegapunk's daughter or a robot...

3

u/murray-sama 4d ago

It did say something along the lines of "speaking in an old time voice", so clearly more going on than meets the eye

11

u/meertatt 4d ago

holy shit its so obvious that its not actually vegapunk. She is numbered just like the other machines that were introduced in the chapter.

u/Snoo-36058 4d ago

Lol I know right..... Cracker got us good. This is probably Cracker times 2.

1

u/FartPudding 4d ago

Honestly I don't believe that's vegapunk or if it is then it's a project he did. Vegapunk was always a man and referred to as such. All of a sudden he's a woman? Something could've happened and he made a new body, or created a android. We don't know but we know he's known for very advanced science so it's not out of the wheelhouse that this is a creation of his or related to a science project. I don't care if he's a woman, but unless the military never knew his true identity(which is wrong because we have seen people who have worked with him directly) it doesn't make sense.

1

u/CryonautX 4d ago

I don't think vegapunk's gender/sex was ever confirmed.

1

u/FartPudding 4d ago

It was, he was called old man vegapunk

2

u/siegeerson 4d ago

It's simple vegapunk is trans and/or had a run in with ivankov.

9

u/ActiveApprehensive92 4d ago

Wonder if Vegapunk's mention of "not being able to control lust" will become a plot point down the road e.g., Boa Hancock coming to Luffy's rescue.

Especially now that Hancock's been brought back into focus.

4

u/pira3_1000 4d ago

This statement is so well put, it's almost like a just got a "foreshadowed" spoiler 😂 -- really well put man. Also could explain (maybe) Kuma's mind being able to resist and taking his own will for so long. I even maybe up to this day: we still don't know how his mind is, now that he's back to the revolutionaries

u/NullZone6598 4d ago

Glad to see Tashigi back and safe. I doubt she is much stronger than before because she probably focused on the safety of the kids the whole time but it doesn't matter. Being strong doesn't make a character automatically interesting.

Smoker should be back very soon too. I don't know if he is going to be a bad guy or not, he is still stronger than half of the SH.

u/darkestlightattack Bandit 4d ago edited 4d ago

Why is jinbei taking off his clothes to dry? Its definitely not the cold since we know what it involves for a fisherman to go all the way to fisherman Island. They basically travel half naked through high water pressure, extremely low and high temperatures so fishermen by default must have resistance to high and low temperatures and he's never taken his clothes off after jumping out of the water so why now? Did he do it just to fit in? We know he wasn't affected by the cold this chapter either since he wasn't in winter gear like the rest or complaining about the cold.

29

u/Dayvfish 4d ago

Pretty closed minded to assume all fishmen don’t mind wet clothes 🙄😂😂 lmao

-1

u/darkestlightattack Bandit 4d ago

From what we have seen so far non of them have changed there clothes and I'm asumming they wear clothes that are not affect by being in the water so probably specialised clothing for fishermen. In general when fishermen get out of water there clothes always look dry like they never went in the first place and we haven't see any fisherman change there clothes after getting out of the water. Jack and the arlong pirates basically wear the same stuff the only fisherman we have seen change was jinbei but it's never been because of water.

Yes please and more insight about Blackbeard's weird ability to absorb more than some fruit

There is no way that we wont learn something really important about Devil Fruits during this arc, because Dr. Vegapunk is finally here.

u/Boruto-sennin 4d ago

What a time to be a fan of One Piece.

In chapter 1059 the Seraphim, the new force that has replaced the Warlords was revealed.

In chapter 1060 we saw Im using a weapon or an ability to destroy an entire island nation.

In chapter 1061 we finally saw the legendary Dr. Vegapunk

As of right now, who IS the villian? Vegapunk? Maybe the Seraphims? Been a long time since we've had this type of point in the plot where the enemy is just some dudes doing a job.

6

u/DigitalCoinMad 4d ago

Could it be that Vegapunk is 800+ years old and Bonney/previous fruit holder is the one making her look young. The same as how Im and 5 elders are very knowledgable in terms of void century hence, they try to capture Bonney. And why she is in the island and befriended Vegapunk because shes the only "good" person from ancient history.

This chapter we would be able to know her full power and her link with the World Government and how important she is to the story.

One interesting theory I had been thinking about concerning the Void Century is maybe before the Void the world was actually extremely advanced but then was plunged back into “dark” ages (metaphorically speaking) and that’s how we landed in the semi advanced pirate era. Or maybe it’s the weed talking lol

u/Good_Mathematician60 4d ago

That's pretty much been established, think about the 3 ancient weapons.

u/Dayvfish 4d ago

Well I see what you’re trying to get at but one of the weapons is a humanoid, one is a ship who’s only claim to fame is how powerful it is yet we don’t really know if it’s advanced technology or just the most badass weaponized ship of all time. Doesn’t necessarily have to be “advanced”. And as for Uranus, we still don’t actually know if what Im used was Uranus (though I do believe it is) or if Uranus is something else and this thing Im has is a way to balance out Uranus’ power. Obviously speculation for that too but until it’s said we still have to keep a slight open mind about what’s been revealed to us in that regard.

Enel (by extension of Ganfal and Co) created the ark maxim so I don’t think it would be out of the ordinary for the WG to have the capabilities to build their own stuff.

Im excited to see what happens next. I have so many crazy long shot theories but hey one might actually stick 😂😂

u/Good_Mathematician60 3d ago

Very true! And the ancestors of skypiea and the other 2 winged civilizations came down from the moon in some type of advanced ship, the place Enel kept referring to as Fairy Vearth or whatever, and we all just look over the fact when he finally got there it was being blown to bits by alien pirates 😂.. but I totally get what your saying ODA is a master at his craft and we all will just have to wait and see.. my main interest lately is Luffy's true dream.. like wtf could it be that the entire crew went nuts after hearing? And also only the pirate king would have a slim chance of making said dream come true?? ODA reveals one thing and opens 5 other unknowns lol

I wrote not too long ago that I think the heavenly tribute being gold is going to come into play one day. Even the celestial dragons when they go around being scumbags spend beri’s. The collection of gold to be smelted in order to power something (Uranus or Counter-Uranus) is something I can see happening. I feel like the Gorosei are the unofficial bank for the rest of the Celestial Dragons

u/Good_Mathematician60 3d ago

Or the celestial dragons were the families with the most gold whenever Uranus/ Counter Uranus was used to destroy the ancient kingdom. And on return they got this new goodly status in the new world, but you can't just keep giving out godly titles right? So that's where the heavenly tribute comes in give all your gold to be a part of the world government and Marine protection.. now they are just stock piling for the next coming of the drums of liberation.

For me the most interesting part of the chapter was this short conversation between Bonney and Luffy here:

What's the deal with your wanted poster anyway? I thought your hair was white now...

Oh, that's just how I look when I'm totally free!!

Hm. So if he feels free when he is in his gear 5 state, does that mean he currently does not feel free at all? What causes him to feel this way in his gear 5 state anyway? Being able to live without worries and doing what he wants? Is this his definition of freedom? Makes me wonder if one day Luffy just decides to just stay in gear 5 forever. Not sure if his body could take that.

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but seems like there's something bothering Luffy and he wants to change it. What this "it" is is up to debate, but my guess is that it has something to do with the dream he was talking about.

Overall nice that Luffy is aware of his white hair and we finally get to see Vegapunk, his daughter, a clone, an android or Odaknowswho this person really is.

The breaks hurts. Rest well, sensei.

u/ramuneramunee 4d ago

the loc 'when I'm totally free' comes from the literal translation of 'when I've become free' instead of the 'feel free' nuance if that helps

u/Yangshuei 4d ago

you think too much....he just mean with Gear 5 he's free to do whatever he want to do at that state, this is his power.

u/DimashiroYuuki 4d ago

you think too much.

Probably, but a friend of mine also thinks that Luffy does not feel free unless he is in his gear 5 state, so at least I'm not alone.

u/yiggaman 4d ago

When he's free to do whatever he wants to do. Which is his powers

u/DimashiroYuuki 4d ago

A friend of mine also thinks that his answer was kinda strange so I know at least I'm not alone.

u/MonkeyDEzio 4d ago

When he's free he can literally bend everything to his wishes.

When he's free of all worries, facing death head on with a smile, win or lose.

u/DimashiroYuuki 4d ago

He was pretty desperate to win against Kaidou tho.

Oda has got to be a fan of Rush Hour/Chris Tucker

Secret Sword base is G14? And it’s classified….

G14-Classified. That can’t be a coincidence 😂

u/Ok-Mathematician9309 4d ago

Mustve been too long ago since I watched rush hour, but I dont get it

u/Dayvfish 4d ago

Just google “g14 classified rush hour” lol

u/theRak27 World Government 4d ago

Same lol

u/TG_F 4d ago

Would like it a lot if this would be a Franky prioritized arc or atleast him playing a bigger role in this arc, even if it's probably just a mini arc of like 30 chapters.

u/Al-D-Kyda 4d ago

I’m sure franky is going to steal a lot ideas from what he sees.

u/Good_Mathematician60 4d ago

This is the island he went to during the time skip so it wouldn't be hard to believe.

u/CryonautX 4d ago

Nope, Franky was at vegapunk's hometown. This is an island the world government is keeping vegapunk in to do his research.

u/Good_Mathematician60 4d ago

Ahhh, I stand corrected

u/mainak17 4d ago

i was thinking maybe there is a connection between kid and vegapunk? I mean kid is pretty much a mechanic and his attacks have "punk" term? maybe he grew up near vegapunk's lab or something?? or maybe he saw vega force version 1, something like that... I don't know if anyone made the connection already but just noticed this after reading 1061.
