One Piece Chapter 1085 has left fans with many questions and aching for answers. Among the topics surrounding the latest chapter is a fascinating theory about the character Im Sama inspired by the beloved children’s book “Where The Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak.
The book tells the story of a misbehaving boy named Max who dreams of becoming a king and having monsters serve him. Meanwhile, Im Sama appears wearing flowing robes and a crown. Their short stature is also noticeable, as they barely reach the height of a fence on the stairs to the empty throne.
The resemblance of Im Sama’s appearance to Max when he puts on a wolf suit and a crown is striking. Furthermore, Im Sama frequently appears in a room full of flowers similar to the world created from Max’s imagination.
Max’s disobedience towards his mother led to his punishment. But when he becomes angry, his room turns into a vast forest with a river, allowing him to venture and explore. Max also befriends the five monsters that initially appear fierce, only to be tamed by his magical power. He becomes their king, dubbed “The Wildest Thing of All,” in an exotic island.
According to this theory, the five monsters from the story constitute the original concept behind the Gorosei, another fictional group in One Piece. This group is responsible for high government positions, but their true intentions remain shrouded in mystery.
It’s exciting to consider such links between Im Sama and Max, and there is a possibility that Oda, the creator of One Piece, drew some inspiration from “Where The Wild Things Are” when envisioning the complex and compelling world of One Piece.
