Oda sensei created the masterpiece called One Piece for us, imagining things that no mind can ever dream of. However Oda sensei has based a few of his fictitious concepts on some eminent traditional mythologies. In this post I am going to list some interesting mythology references in One Piece.
Then let’s get started already.
In Norse religion, Asgard is one of the Nine Worlds and home to the Æsir, one of the two tribes of gods.
In One Piece : Shadow’s Asgard is a powerful technique where Moriah empowers himself with the shadows by absorbing them. In doing so, his size and physical strength are increased in proportion to the amount of shadows he has absorbed.
Uranus was the primal Greek god personifying the sky. His equivalent in Roman mythology was Caelus ( primal god of the sky). In Ancient Greek literature, Uranus or Father Sky was the son and husband of Gaia, Mother Earth.
In One Piece : Uranus is one of the three Ancient Weapons that existed during the Void Century.
