Kurozumi Orochi

One Piece Reveals How Orochi Became Shogun

The cunning Shogun of Wano Kuni Kurozumi Orochi, when someone hears his name, thinks he must be a fearsome personality and must have been a true warrior. Well, that is how exactly I pictured him before his introduction, but Oda once more bamboozled us with something unexpected.

In reality, he turned out to be a complete coward. Yes, indeed, a coward is a word that defines Kurozumi Orochi perfectly. He even rose to power, not using his strength but coward planning.

Tale of Orochi Becoming Shogun

Now, let us dive right into it. Recent One Piece chapters have revealed how Orochi became Shogun. He was just a mere worker under Oden Kozuki. But when Oden Kozuki left Wano on his journey. Orochi plotted an evil plan along with his Kurozumi clan members. First of all, using the power of Clone Clone devil fruit, Kurozumi Higurashi changed her appearance and became former shogun herself.

Then declared Orochi acting Shogun until Oden Kozuki’s return. Kurozumi Orochi looted Wano’s wealth and gave it to Kaidou, who, in return, ensured that no one harmed Orochi. When at last Oden Kozuki returned, Kurozumi Orochi did not surrender his throne of shogun to him but framed him and killed him with the help of Kaidou and his clan members like Kurozumi Semimaru who was the user of barrier devil fruit.

Thus, in this way, Orochi was able to sustain the position of shogun as he had the mighty Kaidou’s backing. No one for more than the last twenty years has been able to dethrone him as shogun as whoever goes against him, Kaidou silences them. Thus, when Kaidou’s is gone, Orochi will be dethroned as well. But for now, Orochi, the coward but clever, is the Shogun of Wano Kuni.
