Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back with another theory regarding the One Piece universe. In this theory, I’ll be talking about the power of the Strawhat in One Piece. We have seen a couple of significant Strawhats like Luffy’s and one giant Strawhat in Mary Geoise. Could these strawhats have some powers? I know it seems crazy, but hear me out.
Let’s begin this post regarding the powers of the Strawhat
We have seen a giant Strawhat in the Reverie arc. This giant hat is being kept in some hidden place inside Mary Geoise which seems to be a place where the temperature is very low.
Now, let us observe what Donquixote Doflamingo said about the national treasure of Mary Geoise. First, he said that there does exist a treasure in Mary Geoise. Later, he further mentioned that its power will degrade with time. If we are assuming that this Strawhat is the national treasure of Mary Geoise, then Doflamingo does indicate that it has some sort of power in it.
We’ll later discuss what power it could have, but first, let us examine what else he said. He also said that had he the power of Ope Ope no Mi he would have acquired the National Treasure of Mary Geoise.
Well, since this treasure will be heavily guarded and stealing it must be next to impossible.
So, Donquixote Doflamingo would have needed the Ope Ope no Mi to transfer his personality into someone who would have access to this national treasure of Mary Geoise. As we have already seen in the Punk Hazard arc when Trafalgar D Law was able to switch the personalities of some Strawhat Pirates and Smoker as well.
Thus, Ope Ope no Mi would have been perfect to steal this National Treasure. Also, as I said, this treasure is being kept in some sort of cold storage making me believe that with due time the power of the Strawhat might degrade and this was indicated by Doflamingo as well.
Thus, in order to slow down its aging process, the Strawhat is being kept in cold storage. Now, let’s come over to Monkey D Luffy’s Strawhat.
His hat is also a treasure. It might have almost lost its powers because it had been continuously worn by different generations of pirates.
So, what could be the power of the Strawhat? In my opinion, the Strawhats have the power to influence one’s fate. It is possible that the weaver of these hats uses some sort of ability with which he could give these hats the ability to influence one’s fate in a positive way.
Also, in Japanese mythology, there is a concept related to both hats and them being able to influence the fate of the users of the hats. We saw when Gol D Roger was about to go in a battle in which he could have died but, a storm appeared out of nowhere, and saved him.
Maybe at that time, Shanks was wearing the Strawhat in Roger’s ship. Also, in Logue Town, Dragon appeared to save Monkey D Luffy which could again be influenced by his powers of Strawhat.
It is also well worth mentioning that when Ace died, Luffy wasn’t wearing his hat. So could this be a time he was out of luck? It is possible.
I also mentioned that the power of these hats could degrade with time. There is a clear connection between these hats and the Ancient Kingdom.
It is possible that they were produced during the existence of Ancient Kingdom and also I do believe that they were produced abundantly for the warriors of this kingdom so that their fate could be altered in a positive way. But it clearly doesn’t make one invincible as we know that the Ancient Kingdom was defeated we don’t know how but it happened.
It could be because the power of the Strawhats that were present in the Ancient Kingdom degraded or simply the enemy was way stronger than them.
Thus, it clearly suggests that these hats do have some sort of ability, and that this ability thr hats possess is due to its maker, which had the ability to influence fate. Some guy made the Strawhat which also had similar abilities for Ancient Kingdom people. In my opinion, the hat that World Government had could be of a Giant, from the Ancient Kingdom.
