The Royal Drum Crown 7-Shot Bliking Cannon is Wapol's ultimate weapon. It is capable of shooting 7 powerful shots.
History[edit | edit source]
Drum Island Arc[edit | edit source]
Episode of Chopper Plus[edit | edit source]
In the ninth movie, Wapol devoured the cannon, along with his older brother, Musshuru, and merged with them, with the intention to use the cannon to fire his brother's poisonous spores in the form of its ultimate attack, the Fatal Bomb, to wipe out the entire population of Drum Island. The bomb was fired, but was sliced open by Roronoa Zoro and the spores burned by Franky before they could affect anyone.
Concludes non-canon section.
Translation and Dub Issues[edit | edit source]
The cannon has a different name in each of the English versions. It is called the:
- Royal Drum Crown 7-Shot Tin Tyrant Cannon in the Viz Manga
- Drum Island Mega Monster 7 Barrel Super Shot in the 4Kids dub
- Devastatingly Lethal Tin Titan Royal Crown 7 Barrel Cannon in the FUNimation dub.
Similar to the Bliking ship, the name is intended to be a pun as "Blik" is Dutch for 'tin plated', while without the "bli" all that is left is "king". With this in mind, the intended name would appear to be along the lines of "Tin Plated King". Another example of such a wording would come later with Sogeking. In the FUNimation dub, the Bliking part is translated as "Tin Tyrant".
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the manga and anime, the cannon has seven barrels, as the name suggested. However, in Movie 9 it only has one.
- In the video games, the cannonballs explode on contact, creating giant fireworks each larger than Drum Castle.
