Nami: the Pirate Queen

Oda has placed some hints that Nami is going to become the Pirate Queen.

Right above shows the One Piece colorspread for chapter 699.  This colorspread has Luffy as the King and everyone else as Knights, BUT Nami is the only one dressed as royalty and is the ONLY person sitting on throne beside Luffy.  This shows that Nami is depicted as the Queen.  Everyone knows that Luffy being depicted as the King makes sense because he is the captain of the crew and is going to become the Pirate King.  Why is Nami depicted as the Queen?  Well the answer to that question is that Nami is Luffy’s Queen and going to become Queen of the Pirates.

Whenever Nami is in a wedding situation and she is being forced to be wed by someone, the person trying to marry Nami has always seen themselves as a King or proclaimed that they are a King.  They always describe Nami as becoming their “Queen”.  Back in Thriller Bark, Absolom held the title of “Graveyard King” and said to Nami that marrying him means she will become “Queen of the Graveyard” and that phrase sounds very close to “Queen of the Pirates”.

What supports this notion is back in the 2nd One Piece movie:  Clockwork Island Adventure, where Nami was kidnapped by a pirate named Bear King, who proclaimed he will become King of the Pirates.  Nami is in a wedding dress and is wearing Luffy’s treasure/hat.  She was told that she will become “the bride of the Pirate King.”  Many will argue that the One Piece movies are non-canon and do not have any affect to the canon story of One Piece, BUT Oda has taken many non-canon material and made it become canon in One Piece.

For example: 

  • Nami holding Luffy’s hand in the One Piece special:  Adventure of Nebulandia became canon when Nami was holding Luffy’s hand when he was suffering from poison in One Piece Chapter 826.
  • The Millennial Dragon filler arc (before entering the Grandline) where Luffy was the only person in the entire crew who could hear or understand the dragons speak.  That later became the Voice of All Things.

Nami is always compared and is shown to be similar to Portgas D. Rouge, who was the Pirate King’s Lover a.k.a. the Pirate Queen.  Here is a whole post I previously did on Nami and Rouge.  Please check it out!

SBS 27 Answer

In SBS 27 a question was asked on why Sanji refers to Nami with “-san”, who is younger and Robin with “-chan”, who is older? And Oda answered that Sanji calls Nami with “-san” due to Nami’s natural QUEENLY-NESS. Why would Oda use “queenly-ness” to describe Nami’s nature?  It is simple, Nami has all the qualities of being a Queen.  

  • Nami loves money or large amounts of WEALTH.
  • Nami cares about her image and how she’s gonna look (like her bounty posters) in a way she acts like celebrity or someone with FAME.
  • Nami is authoritative or bossy and this is because she wants to show she has some POWER over people

WEALTH, FAME, and POWER!  The only person who obtains all of these things is the Pirate King.  These are some of the hints, by Oda, of Nami becoming the Pirate Queen.

Oda likes to draw only Nami wearing a crown in various colorspreads and if it is not Nami, then it is Luffy.

☠️ 20 YEARS OF ONE PIECE ☠️

  • 10/20 Favorite friendships.

Luffy and Usopp: BEST FRIENDS. This one it’s my favorite of all. They are all friends and they all have different relationship as friends, but this one honestly I love this. Like it might be because both are the same age and enjoy the same things, but they are always having fun and being excited for the same things, they understand their stupidness. And like, it works since Luffy is a reckless guy and Usopp is coward so the scenes between these two are really funny. The fight they had because of Merry in water 7 broke my heart because Luffy didn’t want to do it, he had to as a captain. Like I cried a lot with them but I was really happy how they fixed everything. And even if they make joke and stuff, Usopp respects him a lot too. And protects his dream as well. HE DOESN’T ALLOW ANYONE TO LAUGH OF LUFFY’S DREAM.

Zoro and Luffy: this friendship it’s loyalty more than anything. They are all loyal to Luffy as captain and friend but Zoro definitely wins this award. I love this one just like I love the first one. Luffy’s personality works well with every member I have to say. Zoro is a lazy guy and a really serious man as well. And he respects Luffy more than anything, even if he acts like a kid, he recognizes him as his captain more than anything. And he protects his dream more than his own and that’s honestly beautiful. He was wiling to give up about his dream if he can protects his like like COME ON THIS FRIENDSHIP ITS GOALS. And Luffy as well, he trusts Zoro so much. Like I really love when Luffy is like: if Zoro says he will, then he will. I’ll leave it to him. He loves his vice-captain so much.

Zoro and Sanji: it’s actually a rivalry for not a real reason actually. Since little garden they established this rivalry because they couldn’t decide which of them brought the biggest animal to cook. This one it’s specially for comedy and I love it too. Like they fight for the tiniest thing but when it comes to help and works as teammates, they can relay on each other to accomplish that goal. Even if they fight a lot, I’d say it’s a good friendship between these two. I really loved how back in Foxy’s arc, Sanji asked him to be friends for 10 minutes and unite so they can win the game and Zoro was agree. When it comes to seriousness they have pretty much the same thoughts as well. And their nicknames are actually funny as well; ero-cook and marimo~ // Even if they can’t admit it they actually care for each other, they wouldn’t be the same with their partner of fights.

Nami and Luffy: Well, even if I secretly ship them as a couple, even if I don’t make a big deal for it since One piece it’s pretty awesome without romance and I would hate to see ships wars because of this, I’m going to focus on them like that; Luffy treats all his friends the same, of course he takes care of girls in his crew, I’m not saying they are weak but I bet he understands sometimes they need to be protected I guess. Nami’s personality it’s of the girl that doesn’t understand Luffy’s stupidness and it’s always hitting him for the ideas he jumps with. Even if she doesn’t posses haki lol. But never mind, this friendship/relationship have been developing through the series just like the others. At the beginning Nami didn’t trust any of them, but Luffy did since he met her. Luffy was the first one Nami asked for help after 8 years. I believe he became someone in her life with who she feels safe and protected from that moment. She’s the navigator and he’s the captain, she’s a part of as I call it, the coward group and it’s always arguing with a Luffy about the islands they should go, so at first she was always trying to persuade Luffy and avoid danger and the and Luffy would always win. But I feel like she doesn’t feel scare at all anymore. She respects him as captain even if she acts/looks like the actual captain sometimes and Luffy doesn’t seem mad at all about this, and what about him? Well, he decided she was going to be his navigator even after she betrayed them… even if Johnny told then she killed Usopp. He didn’t believe so..

Chopper and Usopp: as I mentioned with Luffy, they are around the same age and enjoy the same things like Franky’s creations. Chopper cares a lot for all his friends, but he spends most of his time with Usopp and is always believing what he says. I really like this friendship. Back in Water 7 when Luffy won against Usopp, he went down to take care of Usopp in tears even if he didn’t have to, that was honestly really touching for me because chopper really cares about his being. And well, they are really funny together!

Robin - Franky - Brook: I haven’t related them in special relationship YET. If you read above, I have focused in the firsts arcs and I was used to see all of them together. At least Robin, I really like her relationship with Usopp. He’s always scaring the shit of him and that’s really funny and she’s like the crew mom and chopper’s moma, she’s really cute with him. Brook and Franky joined the crew and fit perfectly with them. They create a really good friendship atmosphere. Franky Is really funny as well with Usopp and Chopper. And Brook can have a good time with all of them too, specially with Sanji from my perspective, pervs.

Nami - Usopp and Chopper: this is a really funny group. The coward group. Whenever they are together you know it will be fun. Just remember thriller back arc. I laughed a lot with them. Like they are cowards but when they have to fight, they fight. Normally it’s really funny when they are together so I really like them!

Sanji - Zoro - Luffy: The monster trio. Do I have to write much reasons about this one? They are the strongest of straw hats crew and I really love how Sanji and Zoro are always taking away the enemies when the boss is coming. I really love the way they act around each other too, they are really funny too because Luffy is the one who jumps with stupid ideas and he would get hurt in s comic way from both rivals. This team works really well when it comes to fight. I really love seeing them together. And the fact that they can beat anyone but the three of them lose against Nami by herself lol.

To be honest, I was scrolling around and found this. This is a very good question. Perona’s ability is to incapacitate her foes by inflicting one to be pessimistic about one self. It’s most likely the case she could, if you realistically think about it. The fact that she could cause explosive damage as well, it’s a very unique trait and what’s more damaging other than physical damage? One’s own mentality, so the stronger the will, the stronger the effect and chance of infliction.

If you really think about it, it’s a terrifying power. Doing damage on the inside in the control center. If you can already tell, in the Thriller Bark arc, the only time is when the effect of her abilities doesn’t work on people who are already pessimistic about themselves. Like Usopp for instance,

When Usopp said “I’m Already Negative!” was because he was already struggling the doubt of his abilities. Meaning, Perona’s reliance of rendering her foes helpless was practically thrown out of the picture because of Usopp. Remember, Back then, Usopp was more of a coward than he is now. He practically doubted himself 24/7 believing he was too weak to serve an actual purpose among his crew but with the growing confidence he is gaining through the time of the New World. I’m pretty sure if the two were to cross, the results of what took place back in thriller bark would be a whole new level.

You must take note that during the timeskip, Perona did help with training and after the timeskip, it indicates that she clearly had gotten stronger.

Perona Clearly no longer needs to leave her body to float or even fly anymore. Back in Thriller Bark, She had to leave her body to even accomplish levitation but you can safely assume if she can do this, she no longer has to leave her body at all for the majority of activating her abilities. Since now, she can be easily spotted with Observation Haki and it was a partial reason why she stepped up her game in the New World.

So to the people who say “She must’ve been very weak to be defeated by Usopp”

That’s where you’re clearly, very wrong. By One Piece Standards, Perona was very strong. Not physically but very potent in rendering her opponents useless by targeting the mentality of the mind. Usopp himself, back then wasn’t necessarily weak he just wasn’t brave to take a stand and really didn’t know how to fight. Now for tough opponents like Doflamingo status, her devil fruit isn’t necessarily useless against people strong as that. If we had more show of her, I’m pretty sure Oda would have an answer for that and I believe why she has ghosts that self destruct so it’s not one sided to her abilities. The Hollow-Hollow Fruit (Horo Horo no mi) when one is a Ghost being, and like all devil fruits. We’ve only seen a fraction of what they can do unless the user can fully unlock it’s potential.

She’s definitely can’t take on people with long range attacks, and obviously can’t take on people like Doflamingo but it’s not a stretch for her to become a Warlord herself (She definitely has earned that title now) due the nature of her abilites.

So where does she ranks? if there was more information to her, it’s anyone’s guess.

One Piece 843/844 and why I think they’re important for SaNami’s development.

Hi, minna-san! :3 I know you were expecting something like this from me, and… Yes, here I am trying to explain why I think these last two chapters were so important for Sanji and Nami’s relationship development. 

Until now, we’ve always seen Sanji and Nami being polite and nice to each orther - except for Nami’s punches, that are gags anyway xD - and always in a situation where Nami was the one to be “desired”… But now things are different. 

Sanji is the one who has been abducted, he’s the one who needs to be saved. Nami’s is always thinking about him, and this takes me back to Thriller Bark, where the situation was the exact opposite (this a nice parallel, don’t you think? :3). Nami is used to see Sanji always around her, always saving her… But this time things are not like this, and I think we all can sense the anxiety Nami is feeling. She wants to save him, no matter what. 

Look at her reaction whe they finally found him… She’s so relieved! She was worried they wouldn’t be able to see each other again… Each other. I think Nami, at this point, has started to understand how Sanji is important to her. And. most of all, look at her reaction when Sanji says he won’t come back: 

She’s about to cry. Not only this: she seems completely defeated and devastated by his words… In my shipper perspective, I think she can’t believe Sanji, the Sanji-kun who is always kind and tender to her, is saying such terrible things. 

And then, after Sanji and Luffy’s fight, we have this. She’s absolutely mad: she dropped the kun - now we totally know that suffix meant something! -, she slapped him and talked to him in a hard way. Also: when Yonji says that “she’s the fiery type” I think he’s referring to Sanji and Nami as a couple (maybe he thinks it’s a love quarrel xD), and if it’s so, it’s very nice xD 

Look at these looks. They’re intense, full of pain, anger, delusion… Are totally looks I wasn’t expecting to see between these two. Now, Sanji is obviously acting, but Nami? She’s really, really mad. She’s a hurt woman, who lost one of her most important certainties. 

So, at the end, I think those new types of interaction were really important for their relationship ‘cause they introduced a lot of infos about these two and how strong is their bond. Now I’m really curious to see how things will evolve! *^* Will they apoligize to each other? Will it take time for them to return to how they used to be? I can’t wait to discover it… 

NB. This a shipper perspective of these chapters and, so, it’s completely subjective! Don’t like? Don’t read! :D

@radicallledward

I’m so glad to see people appreciating Pudding’s characterization (and shipping my ship ahahah).
Thank you for sending me your asks to share your points with me!

To give you my answer I want to start by pointing out how Oda has been writing Pudding since at least chapter 651, around five years ago. You might wonder why during Big Mom’s first introduction Oda decided to put this mysterious, unnamed three-eyed character in a corner of Big Mom’s room just to show us her two or three panel reactions, three arcs before her effective role in the story.
And if we want to consider that the very first Big Mom’s foreshadowing dates back at Thriller Bark with Lola (10 years ago!) I’d say that Oda has been planning this arc for a long time and this is the reason why I can’t really see Oda taking decisions out of the blue right now (I remember somebody recently leaked some photos of his workplaces’ writing desk with the ideas for current and future arcs in huge notebooks so I’m confident he doesn’t need to improvise).

I believe Pudding associates her third eye with her real self. We are talking about a rotten liar and an excellent actress, a strategist with a fearful Devil Fruit power which allows her to have the parts she wants in everybody’s memory-film as if everyone around her was a walking movie camera.
Last chapter showed us how her eye always made her feel like an heartless monster.
An eye is something you can’t just “take off” like you can take off your bangs, an eye will always stay there on your face, no matter how much you try to cover it.
If you think about it her behaviour is strictly connected to her eye: if her third eye is covered by her bangs then she’s the cute and caring Pudding, if her third eye is showing then she acts like the psycho monster Pudding. Last two chapters had some parallels highlighting this again: what she said (no third eye) VS what she thought (yes third eye).

Now, let’s talk about the problem with Big Mom’s tastes.

Fist of all I’ll be honest, I can’t understand where everybody sees the contraddiction with Pudding, today, showing normally her three eyes in front on Big Mom while, back then, it was her who told little Pudding to cover the third eye with her bangs, since she thought she was creepy.
Like I used to have this huge cyst on my forehead and everyone thought it was disgusting and I had to cover it up with my bangs (no wonder why I like Pudding ahahahah). My mother thought it was ugly and lousy as well but it was was just a sense of disgust, she didn’t kick me out of the house or said anything in particular when i had “the thing” showing.
I’m sure it’s the same thing with Big Mom: she finds it creepy but it’s not like she dies if she sees Pudding’s third eye.
In that flashback she just said like “You sure are creepy even though you are my daughter, let your bangs grow to cover it”, not “COVER THAT UGLY EYE AT ONCE AND DON’T YOU DARE SHOWING THAT THING AROUND ME EVER AGAIN”.
After all, a mother knows how her children are. She knows that Pudding, has more than two eyes even if she has her third eye covered up, I’m sure she can stand seeing it from time to time.
I admit I can’t explain very well what’s on my mind but, personally, I’ve never find it odd.

During the scene you were talking about, the first thing Big Mom asked three-eyed Pudding was “Has your hidden power awakened yet?”, she’s clearly putting huge aspectatives on that eye of her and bashing it wouldn’t have clearly been the right choice.
As for why she greets Pudding by calling her “cute” surely wasn’t because she loved her: she was clearly only interested in Pudding’s potential, it wouldn’t have had any sense to tell her something like: “Hey, ugly three-eyed monster. I hope for you that your power has awakened. What a shame to have a daughter like you” if she was interested in her daughter to do something for her.

After all, this whole arc has had foreshadowings of Pudding being tired of her mom using her.
We’ve seen Pudding admiring Lola for leaving Totland, we’ve seen a little flashback of Big Mom telling Pudding that everyting was fine as long as she kept playing the puppet and then again we have had Big Mom only asking her about her hidden powers.

About this “powers” matter, I want to tell my opinion about Big Mom’s “love” for diversity.
We have Totland, a place where Big Mom is trying to make all races live in peace, all races except for giants. Big Mom said that an alliance with giants would’ve let her defeat all of the other Yonkou.
I honestly believe that Big Mom wants to achive her power in diversity, she isn’t really strong alone, she doesn’t really love all of the world’s races either, she needs them to be a Yonkou.

Now does it really makes sense to bully a three-eyed girl in such a colorful world?
Basing on my viewpoint, yes, it does.

Since the beginning of the story we have met dozens of different races. In early chapters we met fishmen and giants. Later on we’ve met long-arm and long-leg people, minks like Bepo, dwarves… but never once we’ve seen, in hundreds of chapters, a three-eyed person.
We don’t know anything yet about this three-eyed tribe, Pudding sure seems to be the only three-eyed girl on Totland.
Maybe three-eyed people were bad and hated by everyone, maybe they got extinct. The truth is that we can’t say anything about three-eyed people yet.
But imagine for a second to live in a multicultural city. Everyday you see people with different color of skin and different facial features, but if you met in a crowd somebody with green skin, long nose and six legs wouldn’t it be odd? Totland has plenty of minks, plenty of long-legged people but just one three-eyed girl.

Anyway this is just my point of view and I believe It’s still too early to judge Pudding in any way since she only appeared a few times in the current arc. We are still trying to figure this character out.
If Oda didn’t show us that nameless three-eyed girl by the end of Fishmen Island we probably wouldn’t have had suspects about her, if Oda gave us foreshadowings about her problems with her third eye we probably wouldn’t have got the surprise of last chapters event.

Pudding has been hiding stuff since a long time and I’m sure we still need to know a bunch of new stuff about her.

This arc was full of twists and it’s final battle just started!

(Thanks for reading this looong post, english is not my first language so please forgive any mistake if you can, thanks again for sending me your ask!)
