Chapter 906 of One Piece has revealed that there is a large straw hat in the sanctuary of Mary Geoise. But so far, the information regarding this Straw Hat has not been revealed.
Many people wonder if that hat belongs to Joy Boy? Here are the questions raised by many fans.
1. Many points of Luffy and Joy Boy are similar
In One Piece 1043, Luffy begins to experience the Devil Fruit Awakening ability.
Zunesha heard the “drum of freedom” which was later revealed to be Luffy’s heartbeat while in Gear 5 form. Zunesha also stated that Joy Boy was back.
This situation seems to suggest that Joy Boy may have also eaten the Gomu Gomu or Hito Hito no Mi fruit, model: Nika before Luffy.
With the ability to eat the same devil fruit, has Joy Boy also worn a straw hat in the past?
2. Gomu Gomu no Gigant
Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Gigant technique makes many readers even more suspicious that the large straw hat in Mary Geoise belongs to Joy Boy.
With the Devil Fruit Awakening, Luffy can control his body at will. He can even suddenly become a giant, with sandals and clothes that are enlarged according to his physique.
In the past, the size of the straw hat at Mary Geoise has also attracted attention because it feels very large.
But since the user Hito Hito no Mi, model: Nika can control the body size as he wants, so can Joy Boy.
However, there is still doubt whether Joy Boy is a giant or a large human like Big Mom.
3. The large Straw Hat was frozen, is this a sign that it was an attempt to preserve it?
Before Luffy achieved Awakening, the last time Zunesha heard the drum of freedom was 800 years ago. Arguably Joy Boy has existed since 800 years ago.
At Mary Geoise, the large straw hat is kept in a freezer. This detail leads many to think that it may have appeared 800 years ago, and that storing it in a freezer room is an attempt to preserve it.
4. The secret of the hat seems to be related to the secret about Nika and Joy Boy
The World Government has so far kept everything about Nika and Joy Boy a secret. The name Gomu Gomu no mi turned out to be just a fake name to cover up the real name Hito Hito no Mi, model: Nika.
In chapter 1018, Who’s-Who tells that a guard told him about the Sun God Nika. But the guard was later removed. The problem is that the big Straw Hat doesn’t seem to be known to many people.
If it is indeed the national treasure of Mary Geoise that Doflamingo mentions in chapter 761, the knowledge of it could even shake the world if revealed. However, it is currently unknown whether the large straw hat is really the treasure Doflamingo was referring to.
5. World Government’s interest in Hito Hito no Mi, model: Nika
On the one hand, the World Government seems to have covered up a lot of information about Joy Boy.
On the other hand, the World Government has long wanted to obtain the mythical Zoan fruit Hito Hito no Mi, model: Nika (a Devil Fruit suspected of being Joy Boy’s fruit in the past) but failed. This seems to signal that the Government is trying to secure or gain the strength of Joy Boy’s past.
So what if that big straw hat really belongs to Joy Boy?
In chapter 906, Im-sama is shown looking at the hat while wearing Luffy’s wanted poster. Did you know Joy Boy before?
