As the Yonko appeared in the first episodes, in fact, Red-Haired Shanks still has many mysteries that Oda has never revealed. However, in response to the audience’s anticipation, perhaps this 2022 will be the year of the Yonko Shanks and the shocking dramas One Piece. Let’s take a look at what the audience is waiting for this character this year!

The mysteries of the devil fruit that Luffy owns
As we all know, Red-Haired Shanks accidentally let Luffy eat the precious Devil Fruit. Specifically, the Five Elders said that the Gomu Gomu fruit has the real name Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika, a fruit of the Zoan system and of the Mythic strain. In order to save Luffy, Red-Haired Shanks bet his whole arm on the “new generation”. Thus, Shanks is the first person to have the Devil Fruit that Luffy owns, this Yonko has stolen from the world government.
Does Shanks really want Luffy to eat the Zoan Devil Fruit Mythical Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika
Witnessing the overwhelming power of Luffy at the moment when the Straw Hat captain is feeding Kaido, many One Piece fans are waiting for an answer as to why Shanks let Luffy eat this devil fruit. Is this a pre-calculation of Shanks or just an unintended incident (originally Shanks wanted to give this Devil Fruit to Ace – the son of Pirate King Roger). Perhaps it’s time for Oda to answer this question that many One Piece fans are very interested in.
The conversation between Shanks and the Five Elders
This is also another drama that Red Hair Shanks appeared in. I don’t understand why Ngu Lao Tinh respects this Four Emperors so much. Before the Wano arc, Shanks went to the Five Elders and wanted to talk about a pirate. Who is the person Shanks mentioned? Straw Hat Luffy or someone and why do the Five Elders respect Shanks so much? Those are the questions that many One Piece readers ask.
If the conversation between Shanks and the Five Elders is clarified in the coming parts of One Piece, perhaps we will know the family background, background and true purpose of this Yonko. It is indeed a wait that many fans want Oda to answer in this 2022.
Shanks and his daughter in One Piece Film Red
The One Piece Film Red trailer reveals that Shanks has a daughter, her name is Uta. Shanks seems to have left Uta when she was young and said “Uta, even though we’re apart, you’ll always be my daughter”. What’s also interesting is that at the beginning of the trailer, Shanks is still wearing a straw hat on his head. So he left Uta before reaching the village of Foosha.
The New Daughter of Red-Haired Shanks in One Piece Film Red
Based on this information, many readers speculate that the One Piece Film Red movie will be a prequel to the original manga, ie the time when Shanks had not met Luffy and accidentally let this boy eat the Mythic Devil Fruit. If the details of Shanks having a daughter are officially included in the story, the question of who the child’s mother is and whether Uta will appear again is probably what fans are waiting for Oda to answer in 2022.
How strong is the power of the Red-Haired Shanks gang
Witnessing the past of One Piece, we have seen the performance of the Whitebeard Pirates, Big Mom’s crew or, most recently, Kaido’s Beasts. Only Blackbeard and Shanks’ crew have yet to be introduced. If Blackbeard and his crew were hunting rare Devil Fruits, Shanks’ crew would remain motionless.
The question that many fans wonder as to why the Red-Haired Shanks is considered the most balanced of the Yonko pirates needs to be answered by Oda. It’s about time the power of these mysterious people is introduced, isn’t it?
You see, even though he rarely appears, every time Shanks appears, the One Piece community wakes up. With all the above questions, really Red Hair Shanks deserves to be the character of 2022 with a series of dramas related to him, right? Please leave your opinion on this issue!
