A One Piece theory that’s quite popular among the Japanese fan base is about the daughter of the Fleet Admiral Akainu.
The theory goes that the Marine Commander and member of Sword – Hibari is actually Akainu’s daughter.
If you don’t remember Hibari, she was introduced in One Piece Chapter 1061 and asked Rear Admiral Prince Grus to rescue Captain Coby.
The basis of this One Piece theory is Hibari’s Japanese language style. Hibari speaks the Hiroshima dialect, just like Akainu. Another thing to note is that no other characters in the series speak in this dialect.
I know it’s a far fetched theory, but to be honest, that’s all One Piece theories. Oda likes to hint with tiny details like this. That’s why the one-piece community and theorists are always on the ball with stuff like this.
I read this One Piece theory on a Japanese One Piece fan’s Twitter account, Sandman. Here’s his tweet:
If this theory is true, can you imagine Akainu’s daughter trying to save the man he almost killed? If Hibari is in love with Coby, it will create an interesting dynamic between these characters.
In One Piece Chapter 1071, Garp picks up Helmeppo from the G-14 base to sail to Hachinosu and rescue Captain Coby.
And in the last panels of this chapter we see Helmeppo and Hibari weeping with joy that Vice Admiral Garp is here to rescue Coby. If Hibari also joins Helmeppo and Garp and we see more of her, that might add a little more meaning to the theory.
After all, why would Oda spend his time with a new supporting character that has no relevance in the future? If he spends more of his panels on Hibari then he surely has something in mind for her.
Yes, the theory is still pretty far-fetched, but interesting nonetheless. If Akainu has a daughter who turns against him in the future, will he be able to enforce his brand of absolute justice? This conflict could add a lot of depth to Akainu’s character.
