One Piece Fan-theory Hints At The Origin of Red-Haired Shanks
If there’s something that keeps the fans from going crazy during the waiting period before each chapter, it’s the fan-theories. Every now and then, we get to see some fan-theories that entertain us, but at times, we get to see ones that just blow out minds away.
One Piece fandom isn’t new to guessing stuff well before it happens, so we tend to read every theory carefully. After One Piece Chapter 957, lots of new fan-theories started popping up online, and one particular theory on Shanks caught our attention.
One Piece Reveals Shanks’ Father?
The theory goes into depth and reveals the origin of the mysterious Red-haired Shanks. As we all know, Shanks is one of the Yonko in One Piece. He ascended to the position about 6 years ago, and he has an insanely high bounty of 4,048,900,000 berries. We finally found out lots of information on Shanks, but much of his past remains unknown? Where did he come from?
According to the theory, Shanks is the son of Rocks D. Xebec! Back when Shanks visited Whitebeard on Moby Dick, Whitebeard said that seeing his face makes his scar ache. At that time, we assumed that he was talking about Roger. But, couldn’t it possibly be someone who looked like Shanks, or had red hair?
A person who is strong enough to hurt Whitebeard has got to be a great pirate. We believe that it could be Rocks. According to the theory, Rocks won Whitebeard as a member of his crew via a Davy Back fight in which he gave him a serious wound.
Furthermore solidifying this theory is the fact that Shanks is 39 years old. Meanwhile, the God Valley Incident happened 38 years ago.
Shanks was saved by Roger from God Valley before it was destroyed and since then, raised by the Roger Pirates. He then became an apprentice on Roger’s ship. What’s more, God Valley was occupied by Celestial Dragons, and Shanks seems to know them very well. It could indeed be something!
According to the theory, Shanks’ real name is Rocks D. Shanks. The theory was put forward by @SirSymbolic on Twitter. What are your thoughts on this theory? Let us know in the comments section below!
