So far, the objective of the SWORD organization in the One Piece story is still unanswered in the story.
Since the appearance of this organization, the fans themselves are curious about what exactly this secret organization is.
Many fans are speculating who the members of the organization are and why it was created or founded.
What is interesting is that in the last chapter, yesterday, Oda gave clues about this organization.
SWORD is a secret navy organization in the One Piece story.
X-Drake, who is one of the Worst Generation Pirates, is the leader of this organization.
Until now, Oda Sensei has always portrayed Drake as a former marine who later chose to become a pirate.
Besides Drake, Koby became the first Marine to be featured as part of SWORD.
SWORD herself returns to the limelight after appearing in Chapter 1061, where Oda introduces the other members of SWORD.
They are Hibari, Helmeppo, and also Prince Grus.
Unfortunately, the chapter doesn’t go into more detail about the organization or the other characters that are part of it.
However, there is speculation that Oda is giving hints.
SWORD A Young Navy
If you pay attention, the average age of characters who are members of the SWORD organization is still very young.
A concrete example is Koby who is currently 18 years old.
Then, Helmeppo who is 22 years old and Hibari who is perhaps not far from the figure of Koby and Helmeppo.
X Drake himself was 33 at this time, an age young enough to become the leader of a secret organization.
Based on this, it can be assumed that Oda Sensei wants to imply that the SWORD organization is a secret organization that contains young marines full of potential.
They have a young spirit and a strength that can bring about new changes.
Speaking of new changes, this possibility is also SWORD’s goal and mission.
So far, Oda has presented information that SWORD is an organization whose mission is to oversee the activities of the Yonko.
However, given the composition of its members and the secret nature of this organization, it seems that SWORD has another objective than the simple surveillance of the Yonko.
The more reasonable possibility is that SWORD was deliberately created to make major changes to the Marine Corps.
They want to carry out a revolution or a major overhaul of the navy.
This is why SWORD then recruits young people full of potential who have principles in line with them.
Because it is the young people who will bring about this great change.
As we know, the navy is the face of the army and a tool for the World Government.
Most agree and want to go through with it, but some don’t.
Those who disagree believe that the Navy should not be under the control of the World Government or Sky Dragons.
They should act independently and be true protectors, not the other way around.
The purpose of One Piece Sword.
There is a legendary figure?
We do not know when this organization was created.
However, SWORD may have appeared a short time ago, around a decade ago.
With the organization being young and new, as well as the large number of young, inexperienced marines, of course, a high-ranking figure who can guide and lead them is needed.
Previous speculation pointed to several Legends being part of SWORD.
Some of them are Sengoku or Garp.
Both of these characters are quite reasonable given that they both oppose the existence or situation and intervention of the world government.
The two are also currently more active in the navy, considering they have decided to retire.
Another character who could become SWORD’s mentor is Fujitora.
He hated injustice, even though he was a Marine himself.
He was even ready to cut out his eyes, because he felt there was nothing good left to see.
Apart from these legends, it is certainly interesting to see how Oda Sensei presents other information about this organization.
