Do you remember Wiper in One Piece? He is a character that appears in the Skypiea storyline. Known as the leader of the Shandia warriors when fighting to regain Upper Yard from Enel.
Wiper is extremely skilled in combat, mainly involving the use of Wavers-Skates to add power and speed to his kicks in order to quickly knock down opponents. He also has great stamina as he was able to use Reject Dial three times without dying, a feat where even a single person can lose their life. In addition, he can also create an explosion with Impact Dial in the back with only minimal damage. It could be said that Wiper had inherited part of his abilities from Calgara. He was able to fight on par with Luffy when they met on Upper Yard, as well as with Zoro during the Iron Trials.
After King’s face was revealed in One Piece 1035, many observant fans realized that there were some similarities between King and Wiper. So how things are, let’s go find out together.
1. Physical characteristics
First of all, in terms of appearance, Wiper and King both have wings on their backs, although they have different points. Wiper’s wings are white and small in size, like the other Shandia. Meanwhile, King’s wings are quite large and black.
Next is that both are known to have dark skin, specifically in the anime, Wiper is brown and King in the manga has been revealed to have a more special color.
2. Tattoo on left eye
Wiper and King both have tattoos on the left side of their faces, around their eyes. However, in terms of shape, they are slightly different, King has a design like a leaf, and Wiper is like a crescent moon with a long line. Many people consider this to be a sign of their race.
3. King and Wiper’s position in the gang/tribe
King is known to be Kaido’s strongest subordinate, but he is not the leader of the Beasts Pirates. And Wiper is Shandia’s strongest warrior, still standing below the tribal leader. It can be said that both hold the position “under one person but above ten thousand”.
4. The Situation of Shandia and Lunarian
Long ago above the Red Line was the Kingdom of the Gods, and the Moon people lived there. Even so, now the top of the Red Line is inhabited by Mary Geoise, and the Lunarians are known to be extinct. Not only that, now the World Government is also hunting for survivors, and just providing them with information about the Moon people can make a huge amount of money.
This indicates that the extinction of the Lunarians may be related to the World Government, or those inhabiting the Red Line. Meanwhile in chapter 272, Nico Robin reveals that the city of Shandora was destroyed to protect the Poneglyphs. According to Robin, the books in the city were burned and the history of the city erased. It seems that, during the Empty Century, the great city of Shandora was attacked by some kind of enemy.
Therefore, many are saying that King and Wiper seem to be from a winged race and that they were both defeated by the World Government in the past. Even so, at least in Luffy’s time, the Shandia were luckier than the Lunarians because they were the only ones left with King as the sole survivor.
Above are the notable similarities between King and Wiper. What do you think about this, let us know more ideas so we can discuss.
