Zoro’s Conqueror Haki didn’t appear in One Piece until Enma sucked it out, was a member of Luffy’s crew stopping it?
Zoro’s Conqueror Haki didn’t appear in One Piece until it was sucked out by Enma’s sword, so will being a member of Luffy’s crew stop it?
Zoro’s Conqueror Haki started appearing in One Piece’s Wano arc. Exactly during the battle at Demon Island Onigashima.
Yonko Kaido first felt this when he was slashed by him. Later, against King, Zoro let his sword Enma use his Haki. This caused King’s men to faint because of his Conqueror Haki.
There is a feeling that although it didn’t appear until chapter 1033, Zoro had this Haki from the beginning, only now it was sucked out by Enma. So, does being a member of Luffy’s crew inadvertently hinder Zoro’s Conqueror Haki?
1. One of the meanings of Haki is ambition
One of the meanings of the word Haki is ambition. We should note that the characters who own it often have great ambitions of their own.
For example, Roronoa Zoro wants to become the strongest swordsman in the world. Meanwhile, Monkey D. Luffy wants to be the Pirate King.
2. There was a moment when Zoro was willing to sacrifice his ambition for Luffy
Zoro has so far remained very loyal to his captain. In fact, because of his loyalty, there was a time when Zoro was willing to sacrifice his own ambitions for Luffy’s safety.
One of the most striking moments was when he faced Kuma at Thriller Bark, Zoro willing to sacrifice himself for Luffy’s life. Considering that Haki’s meaning is ambition, a situation like this has made me doubt that Zoro’s willingness to give up his ambition for Luffy’s sake is actually hindering the emergence of his Conqueror Haki. are not.
I feel that people who can use this type of Haki should have a little more freedom. For example, Luffy, as the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, is not under anyone’s command. Luffy is very free right now. Even his massive Conqueror Haki appeared quite early, before Luffy even knew the concept of it.
3. Desire to become king
King asked Zoro at the end of One Piece chapter 1033 if he wanted to be king. Zoro’s ambition to become the world’s strongest swordsman can be seen as his desire to become king.
He then makes his promise to Luffy and Kuina. Interestingly, the title of the strongest Swordsman in the world is under the Pirate King. Their positions should be equal, i.e. kings of two completely different things.
This makes me curious, as to whether Zoro will focus on his ambitions more after this. Sure he will still be loyal to Luffy, but maybe Zoro chooses to go his own way, and no one can stop him.
I’m especially curious if Zoro feels himself equal to Luffy, no longer thinking of himself as his subordinate. Similar positions like this have existed before. In the past, Whitebeard referred to Oden as a “brother”, while he originally considered the other members as his own children. This makes me feel that Whitebeard considers Oden his equal.
4. Is there a chance that if Zoro were to go alone at first, his Conqueror Haki would appear sooner?
I suspect that Zoro could have used his Haki a little earlier if he had decided to go it alone, or that Zoro would become the captain of a pirate crew. From the very beginning he was very strong, and had an intimidating aura.
If Zoro didn’t think of himself as just a subordinate of Luffy, or he was forced to fight without a captain, Zoro’s Conqueror Haki might have appeared earlier without the help of Enma’s sword. Like Luffy, this Haki of his seems to develop on its own without assistance.
If so, at least, I don’t think there will ever be a time when Zoro represses or is willing to sacrifice ambition for any character. However, this is still just a hypothesis!
We’ll wait and see if Oda gives a more definitive answer as to why Zoro’s Conqueror Haki is now officially appearing in One Piece! What do you think? Please write comments!
