The Death Of Oden And Kozuki Clan 20 Years Ago – Explained

Death of oden

Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. In this post, I’ll be discussing and explaining the death of Oden and Kozuki clan 20 years ago. The mystery of Kozuki clan is getting more and more intriguing with every passing chapter. This is happening mainly because of what we know about Wano country, Momonosuke, and Oden doesn’t add up. But after reading this theory, I’m sure that you all will be able to understand what Oda is about to do in the upcoming chapters.

Let’s begin this post regarding the death of Oden and the Kozuki clan 20 years ago

First of all, if Oden was dethroned more than 25 years ago, and Wano is in very bad condition since then.
I guess the most obvious question is that why did it take more than 20 years to seek the help of Mink tribe and how could Momonosuke be just 8 years old when he apparently died with his father more than 20 years ago. Now, I think that there are two possible explanations for all this confusion. Let’s start with the first one.

The first explanation is that Wano country is simply very different from the rest of the world just because it has a different timeline altogether.

Wano Country

Well, it does settle and explain all inconsistencies very easily. If Wano’s timeline is different from normal world’s, then we can explain why Momonosuke thinks his father died some months ago and not 25 years ago.

This is what I think could have happened Oden Kozuki was assassinated in Wano:
Momonusuke fled along with Kinemon, Kanjuro and Raizo to the blue sea timeline.
Ghosts of wano
Where the 25 years have already passed, thus Momonusuke thinks that he’s recently seen Gol D Roger and his father died some months ago. But the more logical reason behind this time gap is that someone among 8 ghosts of Wano has the power to manipulate time. I think this character has the Time Time devil fruit.

So, this is what I think would have happened. Oden would have been killed 25 years ago and now it would have been the turn of Momonosuke to get killed as well.
Kozuki clan
The member of the 8 ghosts with time time devil fruit would have sent Momonosuke and others and even himself into the future.

This explains why they were never found in Wano 25 years ago, and thus were presumed dead and their graves were made. But why say the 8 ghosts of Wano?
Kozuki clan
I can understand that Momonosuke and others are called ghosts because they simply vanished into the future but why will people of Wano call Oden Kozuki a ghost as well? Did he also disappear? Did Oden Kozuki really die, or he was presumed to be dead. Well, it is entirely possible that to save Oden Kozuki, this character with the time time devil fruit sent him into another timeline maybe in past or future.

Nonetheless, I think that Momonosuke and others were sent to a different timeline than Oden Kozuki. I seriously speculate that Oden Kozuki is alive and might return soon. What if Oden is the one who has time devil fruit.

He might have sent Momonosuke and others into the future and that why Momonusuke thinks that he’s dead.

He might have then sent himself in a different timeline as well. If we observe closely what is it that Nekomamushi and Inuarashi, Kinemon, Momonusuke, etc want?
Oden Kozuki
They want to take back Wano from the Shogun, Kurozumi Orochi and Kaido. In a way, they want to revive the honour of Kozuki clan. This thought of why Oden Kozuki is also included in the 8 ghosts of Wano is making me curious. As I said, if Momonusuke and others travelled to future, it is understandable to think why they are called Ghosts of Wano.

But why do people of Wano think that Oden Kozuki is also a ghost if he was executed right in front of their eyes?
Luffy wano
What I think is that these all 8 ghosts fled via time travel, and in order to save his prestige, Orochi might have told everyone that Oden has been executed but nobody saw it. So, it is well possible that Oden is alive and he could be the one sharing sake with Crocus on the cover page that has caused many theories to arise. So, what are your thoughts on death of Oden?
