When it comes to One Piece, fans are always eager to find out more about the characters and their past. And in a recent revelation by Eiichiro Oda, the creator of One Piece, we finally get a glimpse into the past of one of the most mysterious characters in the anime/manga series, Monkey D. Dragon. According to Oda, Dragon was actually a former marine, following in the footsteps of his father, Monkey D. Garp. He even had a close friendship with Akainu, both of them being marines and hating pirates in the One Piece universe.
However, things took a turn when Dragon went on to form the Revolutionary Army, becoming one of the strongest opponents of the World Government. Oda also revealed that Dragon and Akainu share the same age and were both named after mythological creatures from Chinese legends.
But the big question that still remains unanswered is why Dragon left the marines and formed the Revolutionary Army? It’s known that the Revolutionary Army opposes corrupt nobles from Marijoa who are controlling the World Government for their own selfish interests. But, why did Dragon and Akainu become enemies, and what caused their falling out?
There are several theories as to what happened between Akainu and Dragon, with some fans speculating that Dragon has one of the four original devil fruits in the One Piece universe. However, the truth behind this theory and many other theories still hasn’t been confirmed.
One thing is for sure, Dragon’s past seems to be more complex than what we first thought, and it’ll be interesting to see how his character develops in the future. One Piece fans eagerly await the day when all the mysteries surrounding Dragon’s past will be revealed.
In conclusion, Eiichiro Oda has done a great job of creating a character as complex as Monkey D. Dragon in One Piece. His past and his motives for forming the Revolutionary Army remain shrouded in mystery, making him one of the most intriguing characters in the entire series. And with new revelations from Oda, fans are more excited than ever to find out what lies in store for Dragon and the rest of the One Piece universe.
