Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back here with another interesting theory about One Piece Universe. Today’s theory is all about Roronoa Zoro leaving the Strawhats. This a must read post for all One Piece lovers. As evident, this post is full of potential spoilers so whoever does not like to read spoilers please stay away from this post. So, without further delay let us begin.
To understand this theory we have to literally combine a lot of scenes together. First, let us go back to the Ennies Lobby and Water Seven arc. When Usopp left the Strawhats and then wanted to return, Luffy said that okay let’s fetch him. But Zoro said no, they had a fight and Usopp lost and left us. He further says, if Luffy does so it would put Luffy down. And the crew who’s captain is humiliated is a lost cause and if Luffy decided to do so then Zoro would have left the crew. Luffy may be stupid, but Zoro is not. He won’t stand anyone disrespecting his Captain.
He also asks if leaving the crew is such a simple thing to do. It seems that Roronoa Zoro is emphasizing on the topic of leaving the crew more than it’s needed at the time. And after Sanji left the crew in Whole Cake Island arc he emphasized on the one reason that he couldn’t return very much.
He said I disrespected my own captain and even injured him, and this is why he thought he had no right to return to the ship. So, it seems that both these incidents indicate that leaving the crew is after all a huge deal. Now, coming to what Zoro said after the time skip, specifically during the Punk Hazard arc, when Luffy was losing to Caesar, who they were stronger than. Roronoa Zoro told Luffy to get his act together and that they are in the New World and if they lose to Caesar how will they defeat a Yonko? Zoro had a point. Luffy was taking all this way too easily. He’s the strongest in the crew by a huge margin. Nobody even comes close to Luffy, but he was to easygoing back then.
The New World is very dangerous, and a small slip-up could result in their death. But Luffy continued to not take it seriously. And we saw how foolishly he invaded a Yonko’s territory even without his full crew to take back Sanji. And it is more likely that he is going to go head to head against another Yonko, that is Kaido.
It was a miracle that Luffy and co. survived against Big Mom. Also, Zoro frustratingly told Luffy to think rationally during the Zou arc but Luffy does what he does. Zoro thought that Sanji should take care of his problems himself to which Luffy naturally opposed. Zoro was never okay with going with the idea to save Sanji. Also, when Luffy allowed Sanji to humiliate him it might signify that he has lost his dignity as the captain of the Strawhats. But that’s arguable. I personally think Sanji did what he had to do in order to survive. However, a lot of you don’t see the situation in that way.
As I mentioned earlier what Roronoa Zoro said about what he thinks about his captain if he allows himself to be disrespected. He said if so happens, the crew is doomed and he will no longer be a part of the crew anymore. That’s what we love Oda for as he is known for dropping hints way before it becomes a full-fledged story.
Another thing to consider is that Zoro has never been hesitant to fight anyone who has come in his way. Even if Luffy gets between his goal he will even fight him. We also know that Zoro is willing to die for Luffy in order to make him the king of the pirates. Keeping all the hints and evidence in mind, it clearly indicates that when Zoro comes to know that Luffy has allowed himself to be humiliated and even get beaten up by Sanji, what do you think he will do? He won’t stand for this, and probably end up leaving the crew. That’s a very big possibility in my opinion.
Isn’t it clear that keeping all the things he has said up until this point of time in mind, that he will no longer accept Luffy as his captain and leave the crew? And another reason could be Luffy’s reckless decisions which lead his crew in danger. We have seen numerous times that Zoro has been left frustrated due to Luffy’s reckless decisions. So, all these things indicate that Zoro might well leave the Strawhats crew.
That is it from today’s post on why Zoro will leave the crew. If you do not agree with the points in the post and have some of your own opinions, share them with us in the comments section down below. Keep visiting TheAnimeScrolls for more information about Anime, Manga and movies.
