The dumbest joke in One Piece is the secret of Dr.’s genius. vegapunk
Warning: SPOILERS for One Piece Chapter #1067
The secret of Dr. vegapunkHis brilliant intellect is gone, and he is both impressive and ridiculous, in perfect condition a piece style The world’s greatest scientist, who may soon join the Straw Hats as their newest member, was born with an uncommon intellect, but he also ate a specific devil fruit, the name of which serves to series author Eiichiro Oda as preparation for a piecethe silliest joke
Before his debut, Dr. Vegapunk was one of the most mysterious characters in the series. When he finally made his appearance, decades after he was first mentioned in the manga, Vegapunk absolutely exceeded expectations, presenting himself through a series of clones of different genders, shapes and attitudes, before showing his real body Through a flashback, it was revealed that in the past, Vegapunk had an enormously sized brain, causing his head to swell to monstrous proportions. The reason for this unique condition was later explained as the result of the powers of a devil fruit.
Chapter #1067 of a piece reveals that although he was already born a genius, Dr. Vegapunk also ate the Brain Devil Fruit, whose powers cause the user’s brain to grow proportionally to the amount of data and knowledge they have. Due to Vegapunk’s relentless research and learning, his brain keeps growing, so he chopped it off and stored it on top of his island lab, called Punk Records, where he and his clones they can access remotely through antennas. However, this whole story was also an elaborate setup for Eiichiro Oda to make a silly joke. In Japanese, devil fruit names end with words not Me, which means “fruit”. The word “brain” in Japanese is also pronounced “first name“, which means it’s called Vegapunk’s devil fruit Nomi Nomi no Mia tongue twister that not even the scientist is able to pronounce without stumbling into manga.
Dr. Vegapunk created the internet version of One Piece
Only Eiichiro Oda could ever think of using a character readers have waited decades to deliver a silly joke. However, tongue twisters aside, Vegapunk’s skills are still exceptional. He was able to create six clones that represent different aspects of his personality and specialize in a different activity, and each day they synchronize their knowledge by downloading it to Punk Records, essentially turning Vegapunk’s brain into a huge cloud archive. Vegapunk’s dream that one day everyone in the world will be able to connect to their brains and thus share their intelligence is essentially a pieceinternet version.
Perhaps, the reason why the world government has suddenly decided to get rid of Vegapunk is that they fear the potential of Punk Records. Just as the Internet represents limitless potential for knowledge sharing, Vegapunk’s invention could spread far and wide the truths about the Void Age and the Great Kingdom he discovered and which the World Government is desperately trying to hide. Dr. vegapunk‘s Nomi Nomi no Mi The devil fruit is, at the same time, one of the greatest powers a piece and one of the silliest jokes the series ever offered.
