Roronoa Zoro Wano Theory – One Piece
After that splendid performance of Zoro in his fight against Kaidou and King, we are putting the spotlight on him. Even the Zanji fanatics would agree that his battle is a major highlight on the Wano Arc. We were initially hoping that the land of the Samurai would provide an answer to some unanswered questions on the swordsman’s backstory. Unfortunately, it only led to more questions. The pirate hunter has been there since the first Arc of One Piece; however, information about his existence has continued to evade us. With this Roronoa Zoro Wano theory, we hope that we will be able to shed light on this character that continues to baffle us.
Roronoa Zoro Wano Theory that Does or Doesn’t Make Sense

Admit it, some of us hoped that Wano Arc was Zoro’s Arc. We have seen Nami’s dramatic background story at the Arlong Park Arc, Robin’s tragic history at the Enies Lobby, and Sanji’s eccentric family at the Whole Cake Island Arc. Unfortunately, it seems that fans of this manga series will be disappointed. As the conclusion draws near, we are starting to understand that the Arc showcases the transition of Luffy from a character that rivals the power of the Yonkou to the King of the Pirates. Still, since Wano has already given us a glimpse of the backstory of Zoro, the next Arc will most probably be about him. In the meantime, here is an exciting Ronoroa Zoro Wano theory that we need to look into.
Zoro is from the Past
This is a repeated Roronoa Zoro Wano fan theory that we often encounter on Reddit and Quora. Some users claimed that Zoro and Toki are related and that Toki accidentally sent a baby Zoro to the future. Toki originally came from a civilization more than 800 years ago. It was mentioned that she traveled to the future several times to escape dangers and probably to find someone. While the idea of time traveling is a crazy way to connect Toki with Zoro, let us first consider what they are trying to point out.
Why It Doesn’t Make Sense

- The similarity of Hair Color- Well, if hair color is the basis of the relationship among the characters in One Piece, then Cavendish, Hawkins, and Sanji are all related. Let’s also remember that the original color of Zoro’s hair was brown-orange.
- The Unusual Closeness with Hiyori- This seems odd since Zoro will not be interested in a woman unless she’s a good swordsman. However, this is not the first time that Zoro saved a woman. He also saved Robin and O-Tsuru. So, this proof on Roronoa Zoro Wano theory seems implausible.
- Shimotsuki Kozaburo in East Blue- It seems unbelievable that Shimotsuki Kozaburo illegally departed from the land of the Samurai to establish a small village in the remote East Blue. Then came Zoro, who appeared unannounced, challenging the master of the Dojo. It’s too hard to believe that this is a coincidence; maybe, it is a part of a grand plan. Kozaburo was also a wanted criminal for unknown reasons. However, Shimotsuki left Wano 55 years ago, before the appearance of Toki. Therefore, it is improbable for them to have a connection.

- Uncanny Similarities With Ryuma- Some of us have been convinced that Zoro and Ryuma are related to one another. However, since Ryoma died way before the pirate hunter was born, the idea seems far-fetched. Now Enter Toki with the ability to send someone to the future. The Roronoa Zoro Wano theory does not sound too ridiculous at all.
- Poor Sense of Direction- Some fans believe that his poor sense of direction is because he was lost in time. Nami has also pointed out that he has already lost his sense of direction since his birth.
So what’s the possibility of this Roronoa Zoro Wano theory? Zoro indeed has a connection with the Wano village. If that relationship is with Toki, Ryuma, or both, we will definitely find out in the next Arc along with the premonition of Kozuki Toki.
