Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back with another brand new theory about One Piece universe. In this post, I’ll be discussing Marco’s return and his new powers. As evident, this is full of spoilers so whoever does not like to read spoilers please stay away from this post. So, without further delay let us begin this post about Marco’s return.
We finally got to see Marco the Phoenix in the One Piece chapter 909. It was known that Nekomamushi wanted to recruit him for the purpose that his powers will prove fruitful in the Wano Country war. Marco was then revealed to be in a small village which isn’t affiliated with World Government and thus had become an easy spot for human trafficking and other bad things because they didn’t have sufficient funds to be affiliated with world government. As a result, there were a lot of orphans in this village and Whitebeard was one of them.
Even after becoming one of the biggest and mightiest pirates, Whitebeard didn’t forget about his birthplace and continued to provide money for them even without informing most of his crew members. So, Marco has, for now, resided in this village and treats the people of the village. He has decided to do so since the village has no one to defend them against the enemies, and he feels like it is their responsibility to protect the homeland of Whitebeard.
Also, you all would remember Edward Weevil, the self-proclaimed son of Edward Newgate aka Whitebeard. Since becoming a Shichibukai, he is attacking everyone that was remotely related to Whitebeard for unknown reasons. So, Marco is vary of the threat that he knows is coming for this village somehow, and will arrive at this village to destroy it as well. Now, coming over to Marco’s powers. As a former pirate, you would know that Marco the Phoenix was previously the 1st division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates. He was the right-hand man of the great Edward Newgate aka Whitebeard.
Also, he was the ship doctor as well. And since he was the first division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, his bounty will be surely exceeding 1 billion berries. Marco also has the mythical zoan type devil fruit ability which allows him to transform into the Phoenix. We saw his powers when he went head to head against the three Admirals of the marines, and he did pretty good against them, I have to say.
Marco’s new power that we saw in the last chapter was his ability to heal others. We have already seen him use one of his devil fruit abilities known as Flames of Regeneration. Using these flames, Marco was seen healing himself but we had no idea that he could even heal others around him as well. We saw him healing the people of the village that I’ve already talked about. This ability of his gives us a hint that he might have awakened his devil fruit. I’ve talked about the awakening of devil fruits in one of my other theories so don’t forget to check it out.
Thus, after awakening his devil fruit he has powers that normal devil fruit users do not have. And he can actually affect others with his power like healing them. You’d wonder why he didn’t heal Whitebeard at Marineford, or any other of his allies. The reason may be that Oda didn’t know he’d introduce awakening of Paramecia, and Logia back then (Marco, despite being Zoan showcases these abilities). Or maybe his Devil fruit wasn’t awakened back then. Now, coming to the Wano war and answering the question of whether he will join the war or not. Well, he still can join the war of Wano but in only two scenarios or conditions. One is that Edward Weevil arrives at this village sooner than Wano war.
This way Marco can get rid of Weevil before the commencement of the war and join the war of Wano. Or the other scenario could be the Weevil is also at Wano already and this information will reach Marco and this he will travel to Wano to get rid of Weevil and thus in the process take part in the war of Wano Country. Another question is that will he join the Strawhats or not? Well, we know for certain that a Yonko will fall in this war, we don’t know how but it seems that Kaido will be the one that will be defeated in the war of Wano Country.
So, in this way, there will be one open spot for someone to become a new Yonko and this is quite predictable that after the commencement of War, Monkey D Luffy will be officially named a Yonko. So, in order to protect the last thing the Whitebeard left behind, Marco will join the Strawhats. Then the Strawhats will declare that this village is under their protection. Thus, when it comes under the protection of a Yonko nobody will take advantage of it.
