The recent chapter of One Piece has revealed a fascinating twist in the form of the monster Gorosei. Chapter 1085 gave us only a glimpse of the silhouette of the Gorosei, but it is in Chapter 1086 where the true form of this monster is finally unveiled, with a reference to the story “Where The Wild Things Are.”
The theory suggests that Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, drew his inspiration from the five monsters in the popular children’s book to create the Gorosei. The similarities between the transformation of the Gorosei and the monsters in the book are evident from various images and stories.
The Gorosei or the Five Elders, are subservient and bow to Imu, the highest leader of the World Government. Imu is suggested to be the character Max, a naughty boy who wears a wolf costume in “Where The Wild Things Are”. Max had a wild imagination, and the forest of his creation is where his magical journey begins.
In the story, Max is an unruly child who rebels against his mother by not eating his dinner, which leads to him being locked up in his room. He eventually gets angry and begins to imagine a magical forest, which becomes real. The quest leads him to an island filled with wild beasts and monsters, who were initially scared of him. However, Max tames them with his magical abilities, and he becomes the king of the monsters.
Many connections between Max and the Gorosei can be seen in the story. The monsters that worship Max come from his own imagination, which could be seen as a parallel to the Gorosei. The elders also transform into monsters after Imu becomes a giant monster, raising speculations that Imu can transform humans into monsters with the power of his imagination.
The similarities between the five monsters in the book and the Gorosei’s physical appearance have led fans to believe that they are an inspiration for Oda’s creation. Even though there are many monsters in “Where The Wild Things Are,” only five are highlighted in the story.
The recent chapter of One Piece is filled with interesting insights, and the connection between Max from “Where The Wild Things Are” and the Gorosei has led to many fan theories and speculations. With every chapter of One Piece, viewers are given more clues and insights into the world that Oda has created.
