Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back today with another post about One Piece. Today’s post is about the return of the Rox pirates in One Piece. Rox were revealed in the latest chapter of One Piece manga and today we’ll discuss them. Also, this post 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.
In One Piece chapter 907, some serious details got revealed. We saw Yonko Shanks arriving at Mary Geoise to meet the five elder stars of the World Government. This was indeed a very suspicious activity as it is highly unlikely that a Yonko who is a direct opposition to the World Government is being allowed to walk straight into Mary Geoise. Now, coming to the second detail and this is the detail we are going to discuss in this post. We saw a legendary pirate crew being revealed by Monkey D. Garp in One Piece 907.
Hina, Garp and others were in a conversation when Garp told us about Rox pirates, who were the rulers of the sea even before Gol D. Roger’s era and about 40 years ago. So, Rocks pirates used to rule the entire seas on their own. Today, we need at least four Yonko who control the seas. That just implies that Rox were Incredibly powerful.
These are Blackbeard aka Teach, Big Mom aka Charlotte Linlin, hundred beasts Kaido and Red-haired Shanks. Before these four Yonko, there were three pirate crews that ruled the seas. These were Gol D. Roger’s, Shiki’s and Whitebeard aka Edward Newgate’s crew. But Rocks was a pirate crew that ruled entire seas all by themselves. This tells us how big this crew would have been and how strong they were. Also, we got to know that this pirate crew disbanded when their captain was defeated by Navy.
Since we don’t know the name of their captain, I’m going to refer to him as “Rox”. So, somehow this all-powerful Rox crew was taken on by the Navy. We do not know what happened of their battle, but it is known that Garp earned the title of the Hero of Marines because of his confrontation with Rox. We do not know whether he was killed or not. I don’t think he died as then Navy would have been boasting about it form a long time.
So, in my opinion, this Rox went into hiding. Now, let’s talk a bit about Kaido and Big Mom and their connection to Rox pirates. We know that to rule over the seas all alone Rocks needed a crew that would consist of very strong members. And in chapter 907 we got hints that Kaido and Big Mom were a part of this huge crew. As Big Mom tells Kaido that he owes her from a long time ago and the fact that Rocks were revealed just after that. Further, Hina clearly mentioned that Rox Included Kaido and Big Mom, and their Captain was a strong guy.
Thus, it is almost certain that Kaido and Big Mom were on the Rocks pirates crew. Another interesting crew member of this crew could be Shakky, Rayleigh’s wife. It was revealed at Sabaody that she quit being a pirate 40 years ago, around the same time when Rox pirates existed. She also mentioned that she was chased by Garp all the time about 40 years ago, and that’s exactly when Garp was involved with Rox.
Also, despite being an old woman she looks young, this seems like a mysterious ability. Now, coming to captain Rox. I think that he will be returning in the near future in One Piece manga as I already told you guys that I don’t think that he is dead yet. As some of you might remember Oda saying this year that he will be bringing another legendary character back in One Piece so Rocks might be this legendary pirate. Initially, I thought that it might be Shiki. Then I was convinced that it is just Kaido and Oda is hyping him up even more. Now, I feel like it is Rox.
Another important detail that was revealed in chapter 907 was the Shanks wanting to talk about a certain pirate. Well, the reason I think that this could be about Rox is that how concerned the government and a Yonko is about it. And Shanks taking a risk by entering Mary Geoise all alone. So, we all should be excited about the next One Piece chapter and hopefully, we will get to see more details about Rocks pirates.
