Hachinosu is one of the most interesting islands in the One Piece series. Recent developments in the storyline have brought Hachinosu Island into the spotlight. The frequent mention of Hachinosu at key moments in the plot shows its importance that cannot be overlooked.
Hachinosu Pirate Island was subtly introduced in chapter 306, when Nico Robin told a little about the history of Davy Back Fight. It turns out that Hachinosu is where the hand-to-hand fighting game between pirates called Davy Back originated.
However, the importance of this island was only revealed much later, this is the base of the notorious Blackbeard pirates. In the past, the legendary pirate group Rocks was founded there. These revelations not only confirm Hachinosu’s historical importance but also position it as the epicenter of pirate activity, echoing through the ages of the One Piece universe.
Name and geography of Hachinosu
Hachinosu Island – a place containing many secrets of One Piece – is located in the New World part of the Grand Line. Chapter 925 introduced this island as “New World, Hachinosu Pirate Island”. In One Piece, Hachinosu (translated to Beehive Island or Fullalead Island) is known as “pirate island”. It is said that this place has many pirates and it is also full of unrest, chaos and lawlessness.

On the island there is a large, majestic skull, which is the fortress of the Blackbeard gang and the surrounding structures symbolizing the nature of pirates.
What happened during the Rocky Harbor incident?
The Rocky Harbor incident was an important milestone. Trafalgar D. Law’s status as one of the Seven Warlords is said to be due to his actions on Hachinosu. This incident not only enhanced Law’s reputation but also created new dynamics, such as Blackbeard’s emergence as a dominant figure and Koby’s heroic rise.

Garp’s heroism and sacrifice
The recent appearance of “naval hero” Garp at Hachinosu Island is very interesting and full of symbolism. His decision to save Koby, even at the cost of his own safety, speaks volumes about his character and concern for his subordinates.

This act of bravery unfortunately leads to Garp’s mysterious disappearance, raising questions about his future and impacting the power structures in the “One Piece” universe.
In chapter 957, Sengoku describes the Rocks group as a group of pirates founded on the pirate island Hachinosu many years ago.
Specifically, many years ago on this island, many famous characters gathered to find the shortest path to wealth and fame. This gathering led to the birth of the Rocks gang, an extremely dangerous terrorist organization. The headquarters of the Rocks gang is also located here.

Especially the mention of Hachinosu’s treasure brings more mystery to the plot. Speculation about the contents of this treasure and its importance to the overall story is a hot topic among fans.
Hachinosu Island has evolved from a mere curiosity into a key element in “One Piece”. The transition from a simple mention to a narrative focus demonstrates Oda’s ability to weave a complex and compelling story. As the series progresses, it is expected that Hachinosu will continue to play an important role, especially in the arc involving Blackbeard and the Rock Pirates.
