There are a few more days to go before the “One Piece” chapter 971 release date officially arrives. But, as expected, the net is already flooded with some exciting spoilers about the upcoming chapter.
Why Oden endured dancing
Fans have always wondered why Oden endured dancing in the streets naked for five years. Previously, some fans even proposed that the only reason must be some form of Devil Fruit ability that compelled Oden to dance and that he had really no control over his body at that time.
But recent “One Piece” chapter 971 spoilers finally put to rest all of those speculations. It turns out that Oden was in full control over his body the entire time and that it was his decision to do it in the first place.
It appears that Orochi offered him a deal. He’ll spare the lives of people captured every time Oden danced naked on the streets. Of course, the simple-minded Oden did not see that the real reason behind Orochi’s proposal was to buy enough time until Kaido consolidates enough power and, at the same time, the dancing would lower Oden’s prestige in the eyes of the people.
“Him dancing naked was to save the people that was captured when he got into the Orochi castle,” wrote one Redditor named u/brikskohuh in the” One Piece” 971 Spoilers thread. “The deal was he can save 100 lives per dance.”
Kaido agrees to Oden ‘s proposal
In “One Piece” chapter 971, Oden will put forth a new proposal to Kaido. “Oden said if he can endure the boiling for the time they decided, then they have to let those who are still alive go,” u/brikskohuh wrote.
Kaido will reportedly agree to the deal and will set the time limit to one hour. “We’ll see if you endured it for 60 min,” Kaido replies.
Oden will then enter the boiling pot of oil. “One Piece” chapter 971 ends as the Daimyo of Kuri is just 5 minutes into the pot.
Does Oden plan to leave Wano?
Interestingly, there’s a line in “One Piece” chapter 971that would change the way people view Oden. “Once the ship I am making completes... after 5 years I will ship out of this country, believe this promise between the 2 of us,” the line says.
The Redditor who made the leaks believes that it was a line spoken by Oden. If this speculation is true, does it mean that Oden is planning to leave Wano behind?
One Piece Chapter 970 has yet to be officially released, but spoilers are already coming out on the web. According to the spoilers posted on Reddit, the upcoming chapter of One Piece is set to feature the continuation of the flashback of Lord Kozuki Oden and his plan to take down Shogun Kurozumi Orochi, the Beast Pirates captain, and Emperor Kaido. Will Lord Oden succeed in defeating one of the Four Emperors of the Sea?
In Chapter 969, Lord Oden gathered the Nine Red Scabbards, preparing them for an all-out war against Shogun Orochi and Emperor Kaido. With the huge difference in their military power, Shogun Orochi, Emperor Kaido, and the Beast Pirates clearly held the upper hand in the battle. However, One Piece Chapter 970 spoilers revealed that Lord Oden and the Nine Red Scabbards gave their enemies a tough fight before suffering a massive defeat.
Upon their arrival at Shogun Orochi’s mansion, Lord Oden immediately challenged Emperor Kaido to a one-on-one fight. After spending time with the Whitebeard Pirates and the Roger Pirates traveling around the world, Lord Oden must have known how powerful Emperor Kaido was. However, Lord Oden looked confident that he could match up against the pirate who is considered the strongest creature in the world.
Chapter 970 spoilers confirmed that Lord Oden and Emperor Kaido were evenly matched and both suffered fatal wounds in their epic battle. However, just when Lord Oden was about to gain control of the fight, one of the Emperor Kaido’s subordinates arrived with Kozuki Momonosuke. Emperor Kaido’s subordinate threatened to kill Momonosuke, which made Lord Oden lose his focus in the fight.
Emperor Kaido took advantage of the opportunity and attacked Lord Oden with Raime Hakke. After directly taking Emperor Kaido’s attack, Lord Oden was knocked unconscious. One Piece Chapter 970 spoilers revealed that the Momonosuke who appeared wasn’t really Lord Oden’s son but Kurozumi Higurashi, who ate the Clone-Clone Devil Fruit that enables the user to replicate the appearance of anyone he touches.
While Lord Oden was lying on the ground, Emperor Kaido admitted that he would have won the battle if it took place five years ago. As noted in the One Piece Chapter 970 spoilers, Emperor Kaido and Shogun Orochi already knew that they were at a disadvantage when they first saw Lord Oden return to the Land of Wano. That was the main reason why they decided to agree to a “dodgy contract” with Lord Oden and made him look like a fool.
Aside from the fight between Emperor Kaido and Lord Oden, One Piece Chapter 970 spoilers also hinted at the battle involving the Nine Red Scabbards and the combined forces of Shogun Orochi and the Beast Pirates. Despite losing a large number of their soldiers in their war against Gecko Moria and his crew, the Beast Pirates still managed to beat the Nine Red Scabbards with the help of the three Beast Pirates All-Stars – Jack the Drought, King the Wildfire, and Queen the Plague.
