Speculation The florian triangle is going to be important to the end game of One Piece

Did Oda make use of a colour spread to foreshadow the importance of this mysterious location?

    In chapter 937 we got a new colour spread. image.jpg I noticed that Robin was pointing towards something on a globe. image.jpg
    The very first impression I got when I looked at it for the first time was that to the left of where Robin was actually pointing was the American continent, Americas (though I noted that the scale was completely out of proportion so I thought it weird at first). However, it didn't took me long to realise that this is a One Piece map and that that big landmass is actually the Red Line. However, for sake of curiosity I peered at it one more time and thought that it kind of bears some resemblance with our world map in a way, if you for a moment imagine that Luffy's foot is on top of the west side of the North American continent and right below it is Central America with the very similar looking isthmus that connects North and South America (and keep in mind that there are many differences with our real world map and that if Oda was making it look kind of similar, it wouldn't be nearly drawn to scale). Just for the sake of argument imagine it to be so. If we imagine that this what Oda subtly tried or wanted to convey, then I thought: where would Robin actually be pointing? (keep in mind, not drawn to scale) Somewhere close to the Caribeans (famous for piracy back in the good old days). She'd actually be pointing at
    Bermuda (Bermudan triangle perhaps?)
    .

    Keep in mind then that we've seen something similar in the world of One Piece

    In the colour spread There's a lot of treasure, Luffy is wearing the same kind of hat and robe that Roger, the king of the pirates, wore as a pirate, Usopp is wearing a Vikings helmet (Usopp's hug dream is to go to Elbaf and maybe even reunite with Dory and Broggy but this time as a real "brave warrior of the sea") Nami is holding a map (her being a cartographer) and so one could imagine that in a way what Oda is subtly trying to convey through this colour spread is something that relates to the end goal of the strawhats, as in the case of Luffy being pirate king, Usopp is a brave warrior, Nami has mapped the entire Grand Line, etc. (as it pertains to the others a little less clear in this regard). However, if we say for the sake of argument that Robin's end goal is to find out about the truth of the Void Century, then might it be that the Florian triangle has some bearing on the history of the Void Century? We also see Sanji hovering over the globe and holding onto it and Sanji's end goal is of course to find the All Blue. Likewise Chopper is holding onto the globe and he wants to find the panacea to cure all illnesses, maybe as it relates to some special place on the other side of the globe (Wano perhaps...?).. Maybe Zoro will join the Sun Pirates? (Hehe, just kidding but who knows?:>)

    @Naomi Rose pointed out in her theory linked below that the florian triangle and the huge silhouette of those major sized figures (whatever they are) have been positioned in an exact configuration as a means to triangulate the position to Raftel (worth checking out her theory)


    Anyways, just some food for thought. Thank you for reading and hope you found it interesting. And for next time! Have a nice day!

    Interesting take, maybe you are close onto something. I like the florian triangle theories, because they are yet unexplained and we can never know when Oda will surprise as and pull out a infodump on us.
    Good job!

    I too believe that the Florian Triangle will be important to the end of One Piece and it definitely inspired the Grand Line and the navigation issues. Glad you have made this.

    Really like the cover hint you noticed pointing out to the florian triangle! Good eye detail!

    Oda still hinting it, it's gonna be important for later in future arcs ^^

      Thanks for the review and glad you're of a similar mind. My god, Oda is trolling us with this florian triangle thing, Bobbins, and this 944 thing, etc etc. it's all a big flapping-it-in-our-face foreshadowing smorgasbord out there to uncover. Oda is Working us like a sneaky bastard :) but that's what makes his so fun, hihi

    Good theory!

    But isn't the florian triangle located in the grand line (paradise)? Robin is clearly pointing outside of the grand line. The one piece is world is massive, so I think where Robin is pointing at isn't an estimate or anything.

      Thank you for the review! Well, to play devils advocate, these huge senate we they are so big that potentially they could be far off from the Paradise side of the Grand Line. Maybe they were somewhat close to the outskirts of the edge of GL paradise at the time. After all they were going to the NW, the second half of th a grand Line.

      At any rate my point was that if Oda wanted to play with us here, the map is clearly that if the OP world, but because of certain similar aspects to our world map, my theory is that Robin may be pointing to whatever in terms of the One Piece world map, but in terms of our (real world) map that would be approximately where the Bermuda Triangle is at in (again, if we play with the idea as it is not to scale). My claim was never that the Floian Tringle is located at the particularspot where Robin is pointing (or maybe I was a little unclear in which its my fault) See what I mean ? Anyways, thanks for the review and input, much appreciated!
