Who was the first member of the Straw Hat Pirates to die?


In the latest chapter of One Piece , Eiichiro Oda seems to build on the death of at least one member of the Mugiwara Pirates aka the Straw Hats. This series is never ashamed to turn off one of its readers’ favorite characters. Usually, in a tragic and emotional way. While most deaths in One Piece are usually fake or character development, Oda rarely puts the Straw Hats in a position where they will actually die. But, now it seems different. Arc Wano has been built and most hype since Punk Hazard -or Fishman Island .


The stakes of this story have to reflect that and the reader seems to be able to see how high the stakes are. One of the Straw Hats has been overshadowed by death as seen in the new chapter of One Piece . However, in truth, there were several members of the Straw Hat Pirates who seemed to be picked up by the grim reaper first. Who is the candidate? Quoted from CBR , here’s the review!

1. Sanji

Judging from the last few chapters , Sanji is a strong candidate as the first member of the Straw Hats to be picked up by the grim reaper. It was clear that Sanji’s body changed and became more like his brothers. There were many reasons why this change he couldn’t accept. But, the main reason was that he was afraid of becoming a merciless monster like his brothers.

One of Sanji’s core character traits is chivalry and kindness. Sanji’s chivalrous nature is especially highlighted several times in the Onigashima Raid. He was captured by Black Maria. Sanji can’t hit women, plain and simple.

Previously, the characters in One Piece have saidand Oda that hitting women is not something he doesn’t want to do. But, Sanji really CANNOT do it. This is because of his demeanor and personality.

This has created a lot of problems in the story. But, in the latest chapter , it seems, Sanji has hit an innocent woman and person. What causes it is not clear. Although, it made Sanji panic thinking he lost himself due to his father’s improvement. So it got worse when he realized that he could be more useful to his crew, even if it cost him his life.

So desperate, Sanji swallowed his pride and asked Zoro to kill him if something bad happened and he lost himself once the attack on Wano was over. This is a great moment of character development and deepening. It’s hard to imagine that this doesn’t necessarily indicate a future event.

Indeed, it couldn’t be said that it was the death of everyone’s favorite pirate chef. However, with nothing more to see, it’s hard to deny the possibility that Wano will end on a more dismal note than previously thought.


2. Zoro

Zoro’s fate is no better than Sanji’s. Faced with King, Zoro has the right job. Unlike Sanji who gains a lot of new powers in this arc, technically, Zoro doesn’t even have to fight. From the beginning it was revealed that he was a Haoshoku Haki (Conqueror’s Haki) user and also his more advanced form.

However, Zoro has not been able to use it again and again like Luffy. While this could be a result of the injuries and energy he expended battling Kaido and Big Mom, just like the other Supernovas, he was pretty helpless after using his Ashura technique.

The only reason Zoro can still stand is because of the Minks and their magic medicine. Even though the medicine could still bring him to full strength, there was already a warning that afterward Zoro’s injuries and injuries would be more severe than before. This causes the drug to be a double-edged sword. In addition, Zoro has faced a more difficult time against King than Sanji against Queen. King’s flying ability and fighting style make it difficult for Zoro to deal with him.

That way, Zoro is unlikely to die in Wano . Not only would this be a bad story, it would make no sense. With the story arc going to become the World’s Greatest Swordsman and defeat Mihawk in the rematch, Zoro’s death in Wanoit would feel too early, especially with the revelation of his Conqueror’s Haki.

3. Brook

This one seems a bit off the mark, however, there is evidence to support this possibility. Currently, Brook is escorting Nico Robin back to the Straw Hats. However, they are being hunted by CP-0 agents. The other Straw Hats were either busy or out of sight, including Robin. This means, Brook must help Robin alone.

This makes sense. Because, apart from Usopp, Brook is the only member of the Straw Hats who hasn’t had a one-on-one fight at Wano. Just like Usopp, Brook acts as a supporter of one of the Straw Hat Femme Fatales. Unfortunately, CP-0 agents may be stronger than Tobi Roppo, because they are called Robin are in their own league.

No matter how strong Brook, it seemed, he couldn’t beat them. While the agents had been ordered to capture Robin alive, there was no such order for Brook. His death may not be guaranteed or even predicted like Sanji’s, but it’s hard to ignore this possibility. However, due to his undead nature, killing him was likely to be even more difficult.
