There have been rumors spreading about the upcoming One Piece Chapter 954. Theories have it that Zoro would be getting a new weapon and Luffy would be coming back in the imminent new installment. However, avid followers of Eiichiro Oda's popular Japanese manga series are wondering if Emperor Kaido and Big Mom Pirates captain Charlotte Linlin would decide to work together again to bring the Straw Hat Pirates down.

While Luffy and the other members of the Straw Hat crew are preparing for the big battle, spoilers suggested that the entire team would be facing another threat in the imminent One Piece Chapter 954. The latest chapter confirmed that Emperor Kaido and Big Mom Pirates captain Charlotte Linlin have, indeed, decided to make an alliance. This, according to rumors, could significantly affect the brewing war to reclaim the Wano Country and free it from the present shoguns.

In the previous chapter, fans witnessed the epic battle between Kaido and Big Mom. The captain of the Beasts Pirates prohibited the Big Mom group from entering the Wano Country and later put Charlotte Linlin behind bars. One Piece Chapter 954 is said to reveal the main reason why these two emperors are not on good terms.

Aside from the unveiling of more information about Kaido-Big Mom alliance, the forthcoming One Piece Chapter 954 is also said to feature Zoro's decision on whether or not he would accept Hiyori's offer. Most readers can recall that Hiyori asked Luffy's pal to return the Shusui and offered Enma as a replacement.

Previous reports suggested that Zoro would accept the Meito sword, which Oden used to hurt Kaido in the past. If these One Piece Chapter 954 theories become a reality, there is a huge possibility that Zoro would be able to injure Kaido in the upcoming new episodes. However, there are still a few who believe that the Straw Hat Pirate vice-captain would refuse Hiyori's proposal.

It was claimed that Zoro chose Shusui first and giving it up right now would make no sense at all. As a matter of fact, Ryuma once stated that Zoro being its master is Shusui's long-cherished ambition. Hence, fans should watch out for Zoro's final decision in the up-and-coming One Piece Chapter 954.

The upcoming new chapter is said to premiere on Monday, September 2, while its official raw scans are said to be revealed on Friday, August 30. Stay tuned to Business Times for more One Piece Chapter 954 spoilers, theories, news, and updates!
