We’re nearly approaching the most awaited war of Wano arc at Onigashima very soon. Here’s a list of some possible matchups that might happen in the upcoming Wano war:
LUFFY, KIDD, LAW VS KAIDO
Taking down Kaido will be the priority for the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai alliance and it is not gonna be easy to take down the ‘Strongest Creature Alive’. In my opinion, the trio of Luffy, Law & Kidd will fight against the big bad of Wano kuni with a small help from other members of the alliance. But inevitably, it will be Luffy who will give the finishing blow to the Yonko with the highest active bounty!
MARCO, XDRAKE, HAWKINS VS BIG MOM
While the main trio of Luffy, Law & Kidd clashes with Kaido, the trio of Marco, XDrake & Hawkins will probably face off against the other Yonkou, Big Mom. Marco is yet to arrive at Wano & we know that XDrake is an undercover Marine, and Hawkins is still working under Kaido but I believe that they will team up with the alliance to take down Kaido & Big Mom for good.
THE RED SCABBARDS VS OROCHI’S ONIWABANSHU
Orochi’s Oniwabanshu are the top tier ninjas personally appointed to protect Orochi. It is only logical for the Scabbards to fight against the Oniwabanshu before confronting Orochi.
THE RED SCABBARDS VS OROCHI
After dealing with the Oniwabanshu of Orochi, the scabbards will probably head for the heads of Orochi. Orochi seems to be goofy and weak, but I do believe that he has some fight in him. His mythical devil fruit power is not to be taken lightly. I believe that the remaining 8 scabbards will cut each head of Orochi while he is in his Yamata no Orochi form.
ZORO VS KING
It has been a while since we last saw Zoro go all out on an opponent. This might be a great chance for Oda to show a great 1v1 fight between Zoro and a very formidable opponent, King. We would also see the true potential of Zoro with his new blade, Enma during the battle with King. Hopefully, Zoro will learn to cut the flames of King. I’m totally hyped to see Zoro vs King and how it pans out. This arc ought to be the arc of Zoro, so hopefully he will get to shine this arc.
SANJI VS QUEEN
From the moment Queen was introduced, I always had a hunch that he would be a perfect opponent for Sanji. Sanji recently got a powerup of Germa66’s raid suit which will definitely help him face off against one of the lead performer of Beast Pirates. On top of that, he even got to practice a fight with a dinosaur (Page One) earlier in the arc. If thats not enough either, then we know Queen has a long neck in his Brachiosaurs form giving Sanji extra space to Diable Jambe the shit out of it.
JIMBEI VS JACK
The newest member of the Straw Hat crew is finally on Wano and I’m totally excited to see him in action as a Straw Hat. Although Jimbei is probably stronger than Sanji or Zoro, I believe he is destined to take on the weakest Calamity of Beasts Pirates solely because he is a new member who has to settle in the crew. Also, Jack is a fishman just like Jimbei which make it even more likely for them to face off eachother.
BROOK VS SCRATCHMAN APOO
One of the Supernova who I will remain in the dark side is Scratchman Apoo. I can see Hawkins & Xdrake joining the cause and fighting against Kaido, but Apoo will be in the side of Kaido for the rest of arc and who better fight Apoo than our Soulking Brook himself? I would very much be thrilled to see the battle of the two musicians, it’ll be one heck of a show.
ROBIN VS SMOOTHIE
As of now, we don’t know if the Big Mom pirates are aware about the alliance between Kaido & Big Mom. But sooner or later, they are bound to know about that and join Kaido to fight against the hero alliance. The sweet commander Smoothie will face the Devil Child herself in my opinion. I would love to see how Robin comes up with a plan to defeat Smoothie.
FRANKY VS DAIFUKU
The first impression Daifuku gave me back at Whole Cake Island was like “Damn, this dude looks so much like Franky, I wish he was here to fight him.” And now, guess my wish will be fulfilled. Daifuku is a strong top tier member of the Charlotte family but I bet Franky can take him on with or without the help of Franky Shogun.
CARROT VS PEROSPERO
Well, we all know what Perospero did in the WCI arc. Yes, he was the reason that Pedro had to sacrifice himself. Holding that grudge, Carrot will probably face off Perospero and defeat him. I believe that the Fire festival will take place on a Full Moon night, which will probably help Carrot turn into her Sulong form and fight the Candy man.
CHOPPER, BEPO, SOME TOP TIER MINKS VS NUMBERS
We dont know who the numbers are, but we do know that they are monstrous creatures who’ve been under Kaido for a long time. We also don’t know exact number of the numbers. Chopper with his monster point along with Bepo and the Musketeers using Sulong form should probably be enough to take them down.
NAMI / USOPP/ KILLER VS ???
As of now, I’m not certain about who should face off against Nami, Usopp and Killer but I’m sure they will also get a 1v1 opponent to fight in the upcoming war. Nami might even get to fight against one of the Oniwabanshu. Also, there might be some Headliners who are yet to be introduced or some members of Big Mom Pirates will clash against Nami, Usopp and Killer.
KINE’MON VS KANJURO
I think at this point we all believe that Kine’mon & Kanjuro will clash sword at one point before the main war begins. I really hope Kanjuro gets what he f-ing deserves.
