The True Goal of the Clowns: The One-Eyed King?

I was planning to write a meta about Eto’s plan to turn Kaneki into the OEK but while researching for it, I noticed something fishy going on… and, unsurprisingly, the Clowns are involved.

Before we start, there are two things I have to make clear:

1) The One-Eyed King was a half-ghoul that lived over a hundred years ago. He doesn’t exist at the moment. He’s a legend and a symbol for “revolution“.

2) It’s extremely likely that Eto is trying to turn Kaneki into the OEK ‒ basically, she’s trying to turn the legend into a reality.

  • It’s interesting to note that Ishida said that :re will be the story of a legend. → The OEK is a legend in the ghoul world. → Kaneki taking the title of the legendary OEK would result in him becoming a legend himself. It fits perfectly.
  • Also, Kaneki becoming the leader of such a revolution would fit the whole thing about :re being a fucked up comedy ‒ Kaneki, who wanted to take down Aogiri, ends up becoming the “leader“ of their revolt.
  • The title of Chapter 56 was “The Second King“. → Kaneki becomes the second OEK.
  • Eto has been testing Kaneki’s strength the whole time (his fights against Seidou and Karen) and watching his progress. She also gave him a part of her kakuja ‒ a “gift“ that will surely make him stronger. It’s like she’s making all the preparations to turn him into the King.
  • Eto is treating Kaneki as if he’s her child which makes perfect sense because in a way… Kaneki’s full kakuja form would be born after eating Eto’s one. And considering that during The Raid on Kanou’s Lab arc, she called Kaneki “The Kakuja’s Egg“, we can say that she’s the mother and he’s her “egg”.

(Here are a few interesting metas that are focused on the whole Kaneki-becoming-the-OEK thing: x ; x ; x)


And now let’s start with the main question of this meta: how are the Clowns related to the OEK?

In TG, we have four main organisations and we know the goals of three of them:

  • CCG → exterminate all ghouls
  • Aogiri Tree → (1) create a world in which ghouls can live freely ; (2) “smoke out the liars“
  • V → keep the balance between ghouls and humans
  • Clowns → ???

A lot of people will probably say that the goal of the Clowns is “to have the last laugh”, however, I don’t fully agree with that. While I do think that this is probably one of their goals, I think that their main objective is actually something way bigger.

I mean, they have people in the most important places of the TG universe:

The Clowns have also been responsible for some of the most important plot points of the story ‒ Souta pushed the steel beams over Rize, Itori made Kaneki go to the Ghoul Restaurant with Tsukiyama, Nico took part in Kaneki’s abduction by Aogiri, Itori helped Kaneki find Dr. Kanou and Nico told Kaneki the identity of the OEK.

They have such a carefully crafted plan that it would be weird if their only objective is to have the last laugh. And not to mention that they were revealed as “bad guys“ in the very last chapter of the first series.

That’s why I think that their real goal probably has something to do with the OEK (and Rize is somehow connected to this whole thing).

The Clowns have talked about one-eyed ghouls and the OEK on three occasions.

(1) Itori’s first meeting with Kaneki

I was re-reading that scene and a panel caught my attention. The words they exchange seem like insignificant gossip but we all know that nothing the Clowns do or say is simply a coincidence.

Before Kaneki, we know about the existance of two one-eyed ghouls. The seemingly random things Uta and Itori talk about actutually fit pretty well:

  • The OEK ‒ probably “male” ; “an old man“ (he lived one hundred years ago)
  • Eto ‒ “female” ; “a small child” (compared to the OEK, she really is a small child ; plus, a lot of characters have commented that she looks like a “child” ; she explained that her God was a child with a lot of power right before refering to herself as God)

Don’t you feel that in this scene Itori and Uta already know everything and are giving Kaneki the answers but at the same time trying to make their conversation seem unimportant in order to mess with his mind??

Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Napoli 1598 – Roma 1680)

Fontana dei quattro fiumi

1648-51, Roma, Piazza Navona

Statue in marmo bianco, struttura in travertino, obelisco romano in granito; h totale 30 m

-

A vorte ritorneno. E anfatti ecchime quane. Avevo detto che me pijiavo na pausa e così è stato, e così è, che nun ce vojo avè più ‘a scadenza de un post a settimana, come che dovessi da timbrà er cartellino (che c’è chi dovrebbe e nu ‘o fa, mannaggia a loro, ma io sto qua pe divertimme mica pe lavorà).

E dunque, siccome che v’aavevo promessa, ecco ‘a fontana dii quattro fiumi de Bernini. Si ve ricordate, Bernini era caduto in disgrazia cor papa Innocenzo X Pamphili coll’acca, pe via che era stato l’artista preferito der papa Urbano VIII Barberini coll’api, che ste du famije nun se poteveno vedè.

Senonchè, er papa Innocenzo eccetera eccetera, ciaveva na particolare ideuzza de abbellì Piazza Navona, pe er motivo non indifferente che er palazzo de famija suo affacciava appunto su ‘a suddetta piazza. E fece na gara pubblica, che tutti l’artisti de Roma poteveno presentà l’idea loro pe na bella fontana da piazzà ar centro, e ‘a mejo averebbe vinto. Tutti, tranne Bernini, che pe espressa volontà der papa era stato escluso d’aappalto, che sto Bernini ar papa je stava popo sui cojoni.

Ma Bernini, che come ar solito ce annava in puzza, ciaveva na bella idea paa fontanella, e che fece? Fece un modellino in argento e ‘o regalò aa cognata der papa, Olimpia. Quanno che er papa vide er modellino esclamò: “Anvedi, bello! Me piace! Vojo questo aho! Chi t’haa dato? Chi ‘ha fatto? Che ‘a firma nun ce sta”. E Olimpia “Eh, veramente ‘ha fatto er sor Bernini…” “Li mortè!” sbottò er papa (e subito pensò “mortacci tua Bernì, mo me devo puro annà a confessà”), “Te giuro je vorebbe menà a Bernini, però me possino cecamme sto modello è er mejo. Oramai l’ho detto e tocca che mantengo ‘a parola”. E diede a Bernini ‘a commissione daa fontana.

Mo nun se sa si è vero o leggenda, ma io v’ho detta comunque. E poi ce stanno mille antri significati nascosti e mille aneddoti, ma ve ne dico solo arcuni sinnò quii pochi che sò rimasti se ne vanno.

In pratica ‘e quattro statue sò i quattro fiumi che rappresenteno i quattro continenti (l’Australia l’aveveno pe puzza appena avvistata e ancora nu ‘a carcolaveno): er Danubio pe l’Europa, er Gange pe l’Asia, Er Nilo pe l’Africa e er Rio daa Plata p’Aamerica. E poi ce stanno vari simboli pe ‘e varie parti der monno, tipo cavallo pe l’Europa, leone pe l’Africa, e na specie de misto tra un coccordillo, n’armadillo e Paperino p’Aamerica. E in cima, tanto pe strafà, Bernini cià piazzato ‘n obelisco, come cilieggina su ‘a torta, in bilico su i quattro bracci de sta specie de grotta, come a dì “sò bravo o nun sò bravo?”

E infine se dice che mentre Bernini stava a fà ‘a fontana, Boromini, er rivale suo, stava a costruì ‘a chiesa de fronte, Sant’Agnese; e se dice che pe sto motivo er Rio daa Plata arza er braccio come a dì “Bada che cade!”, mentre er Nilo addirittura se copre ’a faccia co un cencio pe nun vedella da quant’era brutta. Ma nun è vero, de questo semo sicuri. E in reartà ‘a testa der Nilo è velata perché ‘e sorgenti der Nilo ancora nun se conosceveno, che ce provareno poi in tanti a trovalle compreso er dottor Livingstone suppongo e infine pare l’abbieno scoperte i tedeschi ma ‘a questione è ancora dibattuta quinni vedete che c’è ancora tanto da studià ar monno.

E ve rilascio, ma no pe sempre. E soprattutto restate in campana e nun m’abbandonate, che potrebbero essece presto dee belle novità, e nun ve dico gnent’antro pe nun rovinà ‘a saspens.
