In the latest chapter of One Piece, chapter 1096, fans were finally treated to the long-awaited revelation of the infamous Rocks Pirates and their involvement in the God Valley Incident. This significant piece of information sheds light on the crew’s history, power, and eventual downfall at the hands of the legendary Gol D. Roger and Monkey D. Garp.
Before the appearance of Gol D. Roger and his crew, the Rocks Pirates were considered the most dangerous and strongest pirate crew of their time. Known for their cruelty and lack of friendship, the crew members had a volatile relationship, constantly killing each other. Their dark-colored ship, with the name ‘ROCKS’ written on it, was designed to resemble a burning skull, a fitting symbol for a crew shrouded in darkness.
The Rocks Pirates held control over the seas, exerting their influence and dominance over other pirates and marines alike. However, their reign was put to an end when Gol D. Roger and Monkey D. Garp joined forces and went head-to-head against the crew. It took the combined might of these two legendary figures to finally topple the Rocks Pirates and bring an end to their reign of terror.
After the disbandment of the crew, some of its former members went on to become powerful individuals in their own right. Edward Newgate, also known as Whitebeard, Charlotte Linlin, also known as Big Mom, and Kaidou all rose to prominence. However, their paths would later cross with other prominent characters in the One Piece series. Kaidou, for example, was defeated by Monkey D. Luffy, while Edward Newgate met his demise at the hands of Marshall D. Teach.
Interestingly, despite the reputation and impact of the Rocks Pirates, they remained relatively unknown to the younger generation. This was due to their secretive nature and the World Government’s cover-up of their existence and actions. The God Valley Incident, which served as the ultimate defeat for the Rocks Pirates, was a highly guarded secret. However, with the recent revelations in chapter 1096, the truth behind this significant event has finally been unveiled.
Throughout the chapter, one character played a crucial role in the events leading up to the Rocks Pirates’ arrival at God Valley. Jinney, whose detailed involvement is still to be fully explored, was revealed to have informed the Rocks Pirates about the Tenryuubito Tournament taking place in God Valley. This information led to the crew’s fateful decision to invade the island and ultimately face their downfall.
Additionally, the chapter briefly mentions Rocks D. Xebec, the captain of the Rocks Pirates. Although his face is not shown, his name carries weight in the One Piece world, further emphasizing the significance of the crew and their impact on the story.
Not only did chapter 1096 shed light on the history and downfall of the Rocks Pirates, but it also introduced several other characters. Kong, a high-ranking marine officer, plays a role in ordering Garp to go to God Valley, despite being on vacation. Other notable characters like Miss Buckingham Stussy and Gloriosa also make appearances, adding further depth to the unfolding narrative.
In conclusion, chapter 1096 of One Piece delivers an exciting revelation, unveiling the history and downfall of the formidable Rocks Pirates. It showcases their power, cruelty, and ultimate defeat by the legendary Gol D. Roger and Monkey D. Garp. With this newfound knowledge, fans eagerly anticipate the further exploration of Kuma’s flashback and past in future chapters.
