Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga has reached chapter 1084, and fans are in for a treat as new characters and story arcs are being introduced. In chapter 1084, Oda unveils a new character silhouette, Holy Knight, a secret elite force of the World Government. The Holy Knight character was revealed during a conversation that took place in the Revolution Army’s headquarters, but the identity of this character is yet to be fully revealed.
While Oda has not revealed the identity of Holy Knight, fans have speculated that one of the Holy Knights could be none other than Shanks. This speculation is based on the striking similarity between the Holy Knight silhouette and Shanks, as well as several clues provided by Oda in the past.
One such clue is the fact that Shanks was able to enter Mariejoa with ease and meet the Gorosei, the highest-ranking members of the World Government. This is significant because breaking into Mariejoa is not an easy feat, given the tight security of the place. However, Shanks was able to achieve this effortlessly, suggesting that he may have been a part of the Holy Knight.
In addition, Oda has divulged secrets about Shanks’ past, which provides further hints that he may be a part of the Holy Knight. For instance, it is possible that Shanks did not want to follow in Roger’s footsteps and instead wanted to become a member of the Holy Knight.
This theory is supported by the fact that when Buggy tried to persuade Shanks to continue Roger’s journey to find One Piece, Shanks refused. It is possible that Shanks had already been offered a position in the secret elite force and had to refuse Buggy’s offer.
While fans eagerly await further revelations about Holy Knight and Shanks’ involvement in this secret government army, it is clear that Oda has yet again delivered a captivating storyline in One Piece. As we wait for more clues and information to be revealed, fans can only sit tight and continue to enjoy the unpredictable and thrilling ride that is One Piece.
