Advanced Observation Haki is an ability that very few characters can utilize in One Piece. It debuted in the Whole Cake Island arc. This ability allows one to look into the future, and predict all the moves of the opponent. Today, I’ve made a list of 7 characters who I think can use this power. Let’s begin –
Rayleigh is one of the people who I’m pretty sure has it. He has taught Luffy about Haki and its advanced forms once. That’s not all. At Sabaody Archipelago, Rayleigh was apparently able to look into the past via his Haki as well, which is a form of Advanced Observation Haki as well. I’m sure he has this ability.
If you’re up to date with the One Piece manga, then you should know that Luffy has also gained the ability to look into the future, albeit inconsistently. He is getting better, and better though. This ability gives Luffy a great powerup, and he is now easily a Yonko Commander level Pirate. Luffy is getting stronger, and this Haki will surely come in handy when facing stronger opponents.
Charlotte Katakuri is the one who debuted with this Haki type in One Piece. He has trained his Observation Haki to the point where he can look several seconds into the future. Katakuri can do it way better than Luffy can. He can also do it for a lot longer, due to bigger Haki pool.
Akainu is the Fleet Admiral of the Marines. I really think he has this type of Haki, because at Marineford, he showed something very similar. When he was attacked with Haki by Marco, and Vista, he wasn’t hurt at all. This was despite his body being cut, which is pretty similar to how Katakuri does it. That was a strong indication that Akainu might be a user of the Future sight Haki.
Aokiji was once an Admiral of the Marines. He is now a member of the Blackbeard Pirates. Similar to Akainu, Aokiji was able to use Observation Haki to defend against Whitebeard’s stab. He opened a whole in his chest before the attack could hit him. This could be regular Observation Haki as well. However, it would be very hard to actually pull that off with just Observation Haki.
Yasopp is a member of the Red Hair Pirates. He is their Sniper, and one of the strongest members of their crew. Since Yasopp is a sniper, his Observation Haki, and Armament Haki should be top-notch. It is possibly that he has the ability to look into the future as well because that would be a great weapon for a Sniper, just like Katakuri.
Monkey D. Dragon is a member of the Revolutionary Army in One Piece. Dragon’s powers haven’t been revealed yet. However, he certainly is very powerful. It is known that he possessed Conqueror’s Haki, but we haven’t seen him use it. I think in order to get more powerful, he might’ve awakened Future Observation Haki as well. But, that’s that my opinion.
One Piece Creator To Reveal Massive Information About [Spoiler] Soon
Hey everyone! Today I want to talk about something interesting that Eiichiro Oda recently mentioned in an interview. Being the creator of a such a huge series, Oda often doesn’t get the time to focus on each and every character individually. There have been so many characters whose backstory we want to know, but since the time isn’t right, we don’t know anything about them yet. A few such characters would be Monkey D. Garp, Gol D. Roger, and even more interestingly, Monkey D. Dragon.
All of them are huge characters, and they’ve played major roles in the series. But, most of that had been off-screened. Oda doesn’t have enough time to draw everything, but when the time a right, I believe he will.
Recently, Oda was asked about which characters he would like to go in detail about, if he could. Oda’s response was very interesting. Here’s what he had to say:
Translation credits go to Sandman from Arlong Park Forums.
Question: Which characters would you like to go into detail about if you had enough time?
Oda: Well, there is a helpful means named “cover story” in ONE PIECE for that purpose… Anyway, there remain some characters I want to go into detail. It would be interesting if I focus on Marines. I can come up with a magnificent story about Garp. I’d like to draw some relationship and talks between him and Akainu, Aokiji, Smoker, Hina, Coby who joined Marines one after another, Cypher Pol and Roger.
