(Spoiler Alert for Chapter 1043)
One Piece has been teasing Joy Boy for a long time but now the latest manga has finally shed some light on this mysterious character.
First mentioned in chapter 628, Joy Boy was described as a man who visited Fish-Man Island as he wrote an apology to the inhabitants.
Later after nearly 9 years, Joy Boy’s name was once again mentioned in chapter 967. In this chapter, The famous One Piece treasure was left by Joy Boy.
In Chapter 1040, Zunesha, The giant elephant is none other than Joy Boy’s companion 800 years ago.
If you read the manga, You probably know that Momonosuke is the only one who can hear Zunesha’s voice but how does all this tie up?
In the latest 1043 chapter, The battle between Kaido and Luffy ends. While the Straw Hat pirate is lying on the ground with injuries he does something which could be the biggest twist in One Piece history.
The very same Zunesha says, “Joy Boy has returned.” This is at the same time as Luffy’s hair and hat starts to melt as he smiles lying in the ground.
If you didn’t understand what all this meant then the latest manga now reveals that the mysterious Joy Boy is Luffy.
Joy Boy has somehow manifested inside Luffy but for now One Piece manga is on a break.
