Confirmation?

I think we can confirm that the Samurai from Wano's actual name is Will-O the Wispkinemon ,evident from events that take place in chapter 664.Hordy4040 13:14, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Nevermind ,just a terrible translation.Hordy4040 13:27, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

His name is Kinemon of Foxfire (狐火の錦えもん). --Klobis 14:41, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

But isn't Will-o'-the-Wisp actually the correct translation of 狐火 (kitsunebi)? Or are there some furigana indicating you'd need to translate 狐 and 火 seperately? -- [ defchris ] · [ Diskussion ] · 23:29, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

There are various eastern folklore that are similar to western ones. Both wotw & kitsunebi are glowing balls of fire carried by spirits, however the origins are different. & I believe the Japanese translation of "Will-o-wisp" would be "demon fire" (鬼火 onibi?).

I can confirm this. Kitsunebi (lit; Foxfire) is a phenomenon associated with the nine-tailed fox legends, whilst taking the form of mysterious fireballs, they are not will-o-the-wisps as in western culture since they do not have to occur over a lake and are associated more with foxes than lakes. They are also quite highly related to another phenomenon regarding kitsune: the hoshi no tama(lit; ball of stars, or: star ball) which is believed to be linked to the fox's transformation.
On a side note, I would advise against translating kitsunebi no Kinemon as 'Kinemon of foxfire' and reccomend 'Kinemon of the foxfire' or 'Foxfire Kinemon' (comparable to 'Mugiwara no rufi' - 'Strawhat Luffy' or 'Haiena no berami' - 'Bellamy the hyena')Pharap 23:09, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

Speculation

Unless Oda actually writes that Kinemon has a paramecia, should we really classify him as such? The only reason I'm saying this is because of the legend known as the Tanuki which is known to be able to produce clothes, which Kinemon could very well be. When they're two different possibilities, it's best not to speculate.   Galaxy 9000   04:04, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

After briefly searching for the mythical tanuki (my research for it right now is not very valid, by the way), I found nothing that talked about the Tanuki being able to produce clothes, except of course when you kill it and wear its fur. Couldst thou provide a source? uknownada Talk 04:13, October 3, 2012 (UTC).

As the tanuki, the animal has been significant in Japanese folklore since ancient times. The legendary tanuki is reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absentminded. It is also a common theme in Japanese art, especially statuary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_raccoon_dog   Galaxy 9000   04:16, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

...But that doesn't state if they're able to produce clothes in any way. Chameleons are masters of disguising, too. Blending in with the environment. uknownada Talk 04:26, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

The people (i.e. Marco and Sengoku) who have used mythical zoan abilities (Regeration and shockwaves respectively) have only used them when transformed into hybrid or full animal form. It's not impossible that Kinemon's a tanuki or kitsune zoan, but if he was then it's likely he would have to transform to use his substitution ability. Given that all signs currently point to paramecia, it's fine to put it in that category unless it's expressly stated to be Zoan later on (which will be clear when the name of the fruit's revealed). This is what we've done for all other fruits so far - put them in the most appropriate category until evidence appears to the contrary. Zodiaque             04:57, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

I agree with Zodiaque. From what we know, it's safe enough to categorize him as that for now. If it turns out later that he is something else, we can change it, no big deal.DancePowderer Talk 15:15, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

I agree with Zodiaque and DP. Also, we probably aren't gonna get the name of it the story (because he only knew it was a "strange fruit), so we'll have to wait for an SBS to come out. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 15:31, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Color scheme in manga

Could we change that picture to the one that was on 693s cover? ☠ D S P ☠ Yo! 21:56, December 18, 2012 (UTC)

You don't have to ask you know.. You could just have edited it yourself.   Galaxy 9000   22:03, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
