Wano Country is a country in the New World that is not affiliated with the World Government.[3] It is currently under the rule of its shogun, Kurozumi Orochi, and occupied by the Beasts Pirates under Kaido.[4]

Previously, Wano was ruled by the Kozuki Family,[5] until the family's usurper, Orochi, conspired to overthrow and supersede their shogunate 26 years before the beginning of the story.[6]

Hundreds of years ago, Wano was known as the Country of Gold (黄金の国 Ōgon no Kuni?).[7]

First mentioned by Hogback during the Thriller Bark Arc,[8] Wano is the primary setting of the Wano Country Arc.

CultureEdit

IsolationismEdit

The country strictly follows a policy of isolationism (鎖国 sakoku?, literally translated as "closed country"), meaning that contact with outsiders such as pirates and other countries is prohibited. Leaving the country's borders is also considered a crime.[4] Outsiders who enter the country will be immediately attacked.[9] This policy was maintained as a result of the country's geography which makes an invasion extremely difficult, as well as its powerful samurai warriors.

During his visit to Laugh Tale, Kozuki Oden learned that Wano was once connected with the rest of the world, but became isolated due to a certain purpose. After learning about the true history of the world, he reached the conclusion that Wano should be opened to the world before Joy Boy returns.[10][11] However, he was unable to accomplish this, as he was overthrown and eventually executed by Kurozumi Orochi and Kaido.[12]

Wano has its own currency: Silver ( Gin?),[13] Gold ( Kin?)[14] and Platinum (白金 Hakkin?)[15] coinage instead of Belly. 5 Silver is stated to be too little to afford a week's worth of clean water[13] whilst 500 Gold is considered a hefty sum,[14] and a mere one Platinum coin is (or at least was four decades ago) enough to build a house.[15]

Wano also has its own newspaper, which only covers national events,[16] and the citizens do not receive international news or newspapers from the News Coo, with the exception of the Beasts Pirates on Onigashima.[1] However, most of the Beasts Pirates do not seem to keep up with or care about international news, as most of them do not recognize the Straw Hat Pirates save for Kaido and the members who were part of the Worst Generation.[17]

The lack of contact with the outside world has resulted in many legends and superstitions forming within the populace. Notably, they are unaware of what Devil Fruits are, referring to the powers gained from them as some form of Sorcery (妖術 Yōjutsu?).[18][19] Although the country is familiar with the concept of Haki, they are unaware of the actual term for it used by the outside world. Instead, they call it Ryuo (流桜 Ryūō?, literally meaning "Flowing Sakura"), which they focus on the concept of flow.[20]

Despite the prohibition of having contact with pirates and other outsiders, Orochi's alliance with Kaido (who in turn has many connections outside) shows that the top echelon of the country is hypocritically disregarding their own policies, leading to discontent among some of the civilians. Orochi has also been shown meeting with outside groups himself, such as CP-0 of the World Government, to broker trade agreements, and is willing to secretly import resources that will strengthen his administration, such as battleships. He even demanded the agents deliver Vegapunk as payment for more weapons, attempting to gain an outsider to work for his country.[21]

Smithing and MetallurgyEdit

Kozuki Family Carving Poneglyphs

The best example of Wano Country's finest craftsmanship, the creation of the indestructible ancient steles poneglyphs.

The Wano Country is the world's foremost in smithing and metallurgy, having produced many superior artisans and craftsmen such as the legendary swordsmiths Kotetsu,[22] Shimotsuki Kozaburo, and Tenguyama Hitetsu. The former ruling Kozuki Family invented the indestructible Poneglyphs during the Void Century.[23] Weapons produced in Wano are of high quality, as the World Government have secretly imported the Marines' weapon supply from Wano.[24] According to Law, the Beast Pirates's monopoly of Wano Country's supply of high quality weapons is what ensured Kaido's domination in the New World. Examples of legendary swords produced in Wano include the O Wazamono Swords Ame no Habakiri, Enma, Wado IchimonjiNidai Kitetsu, and Shusui (the country's national treasure).[25] According to Basil Hawkins, Seastone originated from Wano Country and is also the only place where it can be processed into any type of weapon.[26]

AdministrationEdit

In the past, Wano was ruled by six major families. The Kozuki Family made up the shogunate, while the leaders of the Shimotsuki Family, Kurozumi Family, Uzuki Family, Amatsuki Family, and Fugetsu Family each served as daimyo over one of Wano's regions. If the shogun had no male heir in the Kozuki Family, the five daimyo were top candidates to succeed him. Several decades ago, however, the Kurozumi Family fell out of power due to their leader poisoning the other daimyo in an unsuccessful bid at becoming shogun. This treachery and the deaths that resulted from it resulted in a shakeup in regional power, as the Shimotsuki Family ended up ruling over two regions.[27]

When Kurozumi Orochi succeeded Kozuki Sukiyaki, via a deceptive act with Kurozumi Higurashi, as shogun and executed Oden, the remaining daimyo refused to serve under him, resulting in Orochi and Kaido wiping them out with survivors being forced to go into hiding. Under Orochi's rule, the daimyo system no longer exists. Jack and Queen of the Beasts Pirates are considered to be the rulers of Kuri and Udon respectively; it is unknown if any of the other regions have rulers.

The country's administration is corrupted due to Orochi, whose officials are oppressive and harshly control the citizens. Their rule is further enforced by their allegiance to the Yonko Kaido, who supported them with the military force of the Beasts Pirates, making it almost impossible for the citizens to defy Orochi. Much of the country has been reduced to a wasteland due to Orochi's cruelty, with only his personal territory, the Flower Capital, remaining prosperous.

Orochi utilized manipulative propaganda to brainwash the rich citizens in the Flower Capital in order to further reinforce his rule and policies, idolizing himself as a great hero while villianizing the Kozuki Family, particularly Oden, claiming that they attempted to bring Wano to ruination by breaking the isolation policy and opening the borders of Wano to the outside world.

Wano Slavery

Favoring only the rich, Orochi forced all his poor citizens into becoming slaves for the Beasts Pirates.

During Orochi's tyranny, the country's administration has created a caste system valuing wealth over all else. Flower Capital residents must have money or else they will face exile. The regions of the country have been shown to contain two types of towns. There are towns that high-ranking officials live in, and these officials control the rest of the population, only allowing essential tradesmen and merchants to remain. The rest of the population is forced to live in poverty in towns known as "leftover towns". In these towns, people only have access to leftover food passed over by those of higher status. Said leftover food is often not enough, and residents often end up starving. Those of higher status look down on people who live in leftovers towns and treat them as subhuman.[28]

The poor citizens are forced into lifelong slavery by providing the manpower required in the harsh labor in weapon factories to mass produce weapons for the Beasts Pirates in exchange for meager amounts of rations and salary that are insufficient to feed themselves or their families.

Kaido is revered by Orochi and his subordinates, and the rich citizens were influenced by Orochi's corrupt ideology as a wise king and protector.[2]

Justice and PunishmentEdit

In the past, Wano Country had a fair and impartial system of law where even powerful and influential figures can be punished for their crimes such as Orochi's grandfather, the previous head of the Kurozumi Family, and Oden, the heir of the shogunate during his youth. The only exception were the criminals of the then lawless region of Kuri, due to how violent and brutal the outlaws who reigned over the region.

Due to its corrupt administration, citizens who are rich enough can brazenly commit crimes and get away with it through bribery. Some ranked officials also commit capital crimes for their own reasons and find a scapegoat to cover up their tracks, as a particular magistrate who committed crossroad killings attempted to blame it all on Zorojuro in order to steal the Shusui, without so much as giving him a trial to speak for himself. The ritual of seppuku is a known form of punishment applied for criminals in the country.[29]

Defying Orochi and even speaking ill of him aloud are considered to be rebellious and a capital crime.[30] Dissidents who openly opposed Orochi are either sentenced to death or condemned to life imprisonment in the Udon region. A man who defied Orochi's policy to work for the Beasts Pirates was executed along with his entire family.

Public execution by crucifixion sometimes occur for those who oppose the shogun and are used as an example.[31]

Organized CrimeEdit

In Wano, the Yakuza is considered to be well respected, and people associated with it are treated with admiration and fear.[32][33]

Armed ForcesEdit

Wano Country has its own warriors, the samurai ( samurai?), who are swordsmen so powerful that not even the Marines go near them.[34] Anyone of samurai class is apparently of high social status.[35] Ever since Orochi took over, samurai became the only ones legally allowed to carry katana swords.[36] Ryuma's sword, the Shusui, is considered a national treasure of Wano Country.[25]

Currently, under the Beasts Pirates' rule, some regions of Wano Country are ruled over by high ranking members and associates of the crew.[37] As a result, those people's subordinates have jurisdiction over part of the region and have the authority to pass judgement over the residents.[30]

Wano used to have dojos for the teaching of swordsmanship and martial arts, such as kendo, judo, and karate. As a way to prevent any rebellion, Orochi outlawed those institutions from operating ever since he became Wano's shogun.[36]

Custom and FashionEdit

Women from Wano are expected to be modest and speak gracefully and quietly, though they are allowed to become samurai or ninja. Women are referred with the prefix honorific "O-" (?). While in the past the justice system is fair and impartial, Orochi's corrupt social hierarchy dictates that high-class citizens are permitted to dominate over the lower-class, from ordering them around to outright killing them without legal repercussions.

The chonmage is a common hairstyle for men.[38] To have the chonmage cut off is a sign of disgrace,[39] and as a form of repentance for disgraceful acts.[40]

When the Kozuki Family were still in power, all the Wano Citizens and Samurais strived to uphold the samurai code of Bushido to live their lives with honor, chivalry, benevolence, loyalty and courage, and prominent followers of the Bushido became famous and legendary respected as idols such as Ryuma, Hyogoro and Oden. However after, Orochi rose to power, countless samurais dedicated to the bushido code were killed by the Beast Pirates for defiance, while most surviving samurais corrupted by Orochi's influence such as the Mimawarigumi have abandoned the Bushido code in favour of Orochi's depraved ideology of greed and pride, commiting crimes for self interest as well as looking down on the poor citizens and oppressing them relentlessly. 

Due to the extreme cold temperature in the Ringo region, there is a ritual called Eternal Burials as the dead are preserved for eternity under the ice.

Literacy Edit

Kanjuro and Inuarashi Buying Books

During the reign of the Kozuki Family, Wano Country had a rich literary culture.

In the past, Wano Country had very high literacy, with its citizens having written and produced a massive collection of books which were widely avaliable for sale, enough for self-education.

The Kozuki Family were master philologists, having been the one to inscribe the lost ancient language of the Poneglyphs onto the steles themselves during the Void Century, with their ancestors starting a family tradition of passing on those specialized knowledge and skills to their descendants. With the death of both Sukiyaki and Oden, the Kozuki Family's tradition of passing on their ancient philology knowledge and skills to future descendants has ended, as Momonosuke and Hiyori were unable to learn it from their father who was executed when both were still children.

Due to their isolation, the Wano citizens uses traditional Japanese writing tools consisting of an ink brush and inkstone for holding ink to write.

After the Beasts Pirates took over, and Orochi rose to power, the literacy rate of Wano's citizens has badly declined as all other regions were reduced to wastelands with the only remaining school left being located in the Flower Capital. Its education system has also been completely corrupted with propaganda by Orochi and the Beasts Pirates to ensure their dictatorship, by educating the children in their corrupted ideology to ensure the future continuation of the social inequality of Orochi's wealth based caste system, leading most of the wealthy citizens including Orochi's officials to blindly support Orochi and the Beasts Pirates.

Post-Mortem CustomsEdit

Wano seems to hold what appears to be traditional Japanese funeral, consisting of a wake, walk to the grave, cremation,[41] and the placement of a monumental stone pillar with the deceased person's name engraved on it is placed to signify the resting place of the deceased. Some families have a personal graveyard, where the family members are buried.[42] Key items of the deceased might be buried with them,[43] and the grave might be the target of theft for those objects, among others.[44]

Other CustomsEdit

According to Kin'emon, there is a "Fire Festival" that is held at Wano Country.[45] It is a yearly event dedicate for the Beasts Pirates for saving the nation from the supposed evil Kozuki Family, during which the the shogun, Kurozumi Orochi, and his entourage travel to Kaido's residents on Onigashima to offer their respects. However, in reality, it is a party held by the Beasts Pirates and their allies.[2]

Layout and LocationsEdit

Wano Country Past

Before the Beasts Pirates' takeover, Wano Country was a beautiful nature paradise.

When the Kozuki Family were still in power, Wano was immensely rich in nature with grand flourishing forests where lush vegetation thrives due to clean rivers and seas, brimming with various exotic fauna such as deers and boars. After the Beast Pirates took over Wano Country, most of the forest in all the regions except the capital were cleared in order to set up countless weapon factories to mass produce weapons for export. As a result of industrial pollution, the regions have been reduced to wastelands with wild animals that roamed the regions becoming poisonous due to drinking river water from the mines and factories.

Shogun Orochi and Kaido have their own personalized farms such as Kuri's Paradise Farm to provide clean food and water supplies for the Flower Capital citizens and members of the Beast Pirates.

WeatherEdit

So far, the only surrounding sea shown is near the south eastern shore,[46] where the waters are always suffering from terrible weather, with strong, unusual winds that cause the clouds and ocean's waves to take a swirling shape, resembling their usual depiction in ukiyo-e paintings. Inland, every region has a different climate.[47] So far, Ringo was shown to have a winter like cold, snowy weather, Hakumai was shown to have an autumn like weather with exfoliation, and the Flower Capital was shown to have springtime sakura blossom.

Wild LifeEdit

Further information: Animal Species/Yonko Saga#Wano Country

Gigantic koi and at least one human-sized octopus are known to live in the seas surrounding Wano Country. Those animals are actually necessary for entering the country; the octopus is capable of summoning the giant carp, who will then proceed to swim up the country's waterfall borders with enough strength to pull people and ships attached to them along the way.[48][49]

Land-based animals include giant creatures that are used for riding such as a katana-wielding baboon, a komainu, a bipedal lizard, and crocodile-shark hybrid like creature called Wanizame. Smaller and regular size animals can also be found in Wano like tigers, boars, and raccoon dogs. The country also has a unique mobile form of Den Den Mushi-like communication: snails called "Smart Tanishi."[50]

When Wano was flourishing in nature before the Beast Pirates' takeover, exotic variety of fauna such as deers and boars as well as numerous carps lived swimming in rivers and nearby sea.

GeographyEdit

The island of Wano Country is actually part of a larger geological formation resembling a mountain or volcano. Its center, where Wano is properly located, and edges are actually very elevated in comparison to the in-between space, which descends close to the sea level and is filled with fresh water. This bowl-like composition leads to an unique waterflow where fresh water flows out of the land and into the larger New World sea through waterfalls, and atop those, there are clashing currents that lead to the formation of whirlpools. The sea water is also known to somehow flow inland, similar to Reverse Mountain, with the water itself becoming clear like a mountain river during the process.

Wano Country only has two known methods of entry from the ocean. The hardest one involves tying ships to the giant koi that routinely climb up the surrounding waterfalls from the sea, allowing the fish to pull them along.[48] The other method involves entering a hidden tunnel located behind one of the waterfalls, which leads to the Mogura Port, where people and cargo can get transported inland through a gondola. The latter method, however, is restricted to those who are granted permission by either Kaido or Orochi.[51]

Wano Country features a river that splits and divides the land into six areas called regions, and it also includes the nearby island Onigashima.[47] During the Kozuki Family's rule, each region was ruled by a daimyo, although Kuri was lawless until Kozuki Oden was appointed daimyo.[52] When Orochi took power, Oden was executed and the other daimyo all lost their positions after staging a failed rebellion against Orochi.[53] Jack of the Beasts Pirates is currently considered to be Kuri's ruler while Queen is currently considered to be the ruler of Udon. It is unknown if any of the other regions have designated rulers.[54]

ResourcesEdit

The country is extremely rich in resources, being once called the "Country of Gold" and was constantly coveted by outsiders such as pirates and foreign countries. Eventually, its immense resources were targeted by the Yonko Kaido, who allied with Orochi in helping the latter rise to power in exchange for monopolizing Wano's resources. After the Beasts Pirates seized control of Wano, nearly all of its resources have been focused into manufacturing weapons.

HistoryEdit

PastEdit

Hundreds of years ago, Wano Country was known as the Country of Gold. It faced constant threat from pirates and nobles who wanted to exploit its riches, but the samurai Ryuma led the country's samurai in defending against every assailant. Ryuma also became legendary for slaying a dragon in the sky above the capital.[7] After his death, Ryuma was buried in his birthplace of Ringo and his legacy made him a national hero.[68]

Within a century of the present day, Wano was being ruled by a shogunate, and 59 years ago the shogun Kozuki Sukiyaki fathered a son named Kozuki Oden. Oden's entire youth would be surrounded in large-scale chaos. 44 years ago, a 15-year-old Oden kidnapped several women and brought them into the mountains to form a harem, resulting in a massive battle called the Harem Revolt as their loved ones and hired samurai came to free them. 41 years ago, a Mountain God attacked the Flower Capital after the gangsters Kin'emon and Denjiro brought its offspring there, and an 18-year-old Oden came to defeat it. This incident would be called the Mountain God Incident, and shortly afterwards, Sukiyaki disowned and exiled Oden for his uncontrollable behavior.[69]

Oden Fighting Ashura

Kozuki Oden restores peace to Kuri.

Oden would travel around Wano, attracting a band of powerful followers that would go on to be called the Nine Red Scabbards. Two years after being exiled, he went into the lawless region of Kuri and confronted its most dangerous criminal Ashura Doji. Oden defeated Ashura and rounded up the criminals to institute order, and after Sukiyaki had heard of what happened, he reinstated Oden as his son and granted him the title of daimyo of Kuri.[70]

28 years ago, Sukiyaki fell ill. With Oden having gone abroad, Kurozumi Higurashi used her Devil Fruit powers to impersonate the shogun and declare that Kurozumi Orochi would temporarily succeed him. The next three years, Orochi started building factories and oppressing their workers, and his ally Kaido protected him from rebellion.[71] When Oden returned, Orochi refused to give up the shogunate.[72]

23 years ago, Gecko Moria managed to infiltrate the Wano Country and robbed Ryuma's grave, making off with Ryuma's corpse as well as his sword Shusui without being spotted. This incident was considered a disaster that brought the country to its knees.[68][73]

Oden Castle Burning

Kaido burns down Oden Castle after Oden's execution.

Orochi had Oden executed for trying to open Wano's borders, and worked with Kaido and the Beasts Pirates to hunt down Oden's family and retainers, burning Kuri Castle where they lived.[74][75] Oden's wife Kozuki Toki sent her son Momonosuke and retainers Kin'emon, Kanjuro, Raizo, and Kikunojo 20 years forward in time, and had her daughter Hiyori escape with retainer Kawamatsu to keep their bloodline going should anything go wrong. Toki stayed and met her doom, and graves were erected near the ruins of the castle.[52] Afterwards, Orochi met with the remaining four daimyo to have them pledge allegiance to him, but they all refused and staged a rebellion, which was quashed by Kaido.[53] Under the rule of Orochi and Kaido, the majority of Wano turned into a desolate wasteland, with the water and food supply poisoned by the weapons factory. Only the Flower Capital remained prosperous.[76] Although no one dared go against Orochi and Kaido, many people remained loyal to the Kozuki Family.[4]

10 years later, many Kozuki loyalists grew tired of waiting and attacked Onigashima. They were all killed, and were memorialized in a mass gravesite in Kuri.[77]

Gecko Moria would later return to Wano at some point and fight Kaido, resulting in Kaido killing his entire crew.[78] Four years ago, Portgas D. Ace went to Wano Country and learned how to make a kasa, later making one for Little Oars Jr.[79]

A few months before the present day, Momonosuke's group arrived from the past. After meeting with samurai who were still loyal to the Kozuki Family, all of them save for Kikunojo left the country to recruit allies for their rebellion, though the Beasts Pirates spotted them departing.[52]

Zou ArcEdit

The Kozuki Family formed an alliance with the Straw Hat Pirates and the Heart Pirates in order to battle Kaido's forces and liberate Wano.[80]

Wano Country ArcEdit

Zoro Cuts Down the Wano Magistrate

Zoro attacks a magistrate.

After parting ways with the Sanji Retrieval Team, the remaining Straw Hats went with Kin'emon and his allies and infiltrated Wano. To ensure that they would not be detected by the current shogun's forces, Kin'emon suggested that everyone go undercover and assume civilian identities until he and his comrades could assemble an army to combat the shogun and his forces. However, Zoro was falsely implicated for crimes after being seen with Shusui, and he cut down the magistrate who sentenced him to death, causing him to become a nationally wanted criminal.[81]

Hawkins Vs. Straw Hats

Hawkins confronts Luffy and Zoro.

Eventually, Luffy's group made it to Wano, and Luffy washed up on Kuri Beach.[82] He met a girl named Tama after freeing her from some Beasts Pirates who attacked him,[83] and after Tama got poisoned, Luffy took her to Okobore Town to be healed.[84] On the way, he met Zoro and the two of them encountered and fought Basil Hawkins.[85] At Okobore Town, Tama was kidnapped by the Gifter Gazelleman and taken to Bakura Town for the Headliner Holdem to exploit her Devil Fruit ability.[86]

Luffy and Zoro went to Bakura Town with the samurai Kikunojo as the yokozuna Urashima was sumo wrestling, and Kikunojo cut off Urashima's topknot when he proposed marriage to her.[87] Luffy then defeated Urashima in the ring, drawing the ire of Holdem, who confronted him and Zoro.[88] Meanwhile, Hawkins came to Bakura Town, but was confronted by Law. Luffy defeated Holdem[89] and freed Tama as his group laid waste to the Beasts Pirates in the town, and Law joined them as they escaped with a cart full of clean food and water. They returned to Okobore Town, where they gave the provisions cart to the starving citizens.[90]

Kaido Defeats Luffy

Kaido defeats and captures Luffy.

Law took Luffy and Zoro to the alliance's hideout in the ruins of Oden Castle, and some time later, Shutenmaru and the Mt. Atama Thieves invaded Okobore Town to steal their food. Jack came looking for Luffy's group and found Shutenmaru, and the two dueled briefly before Kaido himself came to look for Luffy and Law.[91] Hawkins came and told Kaido that they were in Oden Castle, causing Kaido to destroy it with a ball of flame and be promptly attacked by Luffy.[92] Kaido swiftly defeated Luffy[93] and decided to imprison him in Udon's Prisoner Mine to make him into a subordinate.[94]

Sanji vs. Page One

Sanji fights Page One in the Flower Capital.

A few days later, the Ninja-Pirate-Mink-Samurai alliance was at work infiltrating the Flower Capital, and released a secret message in the newspapers notifying their allies of their return and plan to attack Onigashima in two weeks.[95] Sanji set up a soba stand, and defeated some thugs from the Kyoshiro Family who tried to intimidate him.[96] The thugs had their boss Kyoshiro contact the Beasts Pirates, and Page One of the Flying Six went on a rampage looking for Sanji.[97] However, Sanji managed to quickly dispatch Page One and escape.[98][99]

Orochi Grabs Komurasaki

Orochi deals with Komurasaki after she defies him.

Meanwhile, Orochi met with CP-0 to discuss underground trade between Wano and the World Government, and Orochi said they would have to bring him Vegapunk to get any further.[100] Orochi then went to his banquet, where he courted Wano's top-ranking oiran Komurasaki. Robin attempted to infiltrate the castle to gather information, but was caught by the Orochi Oniwabanshu, and the banquet quickly turned chaotic when Orochi attacked Komurasaki's kamuro Toko for laughing at his paranoia over the Kozuki Family's return.[101] Komurasaki stood up to Orochi and enraged him further with her defiance, prompting Kyoshiro to cut her down to give her mercy, and Nami, who was also infiltrating the castle, unleashed a massive lightning attack on the banquet hall to help Robin escape.[102]

Yasuie is Killed

Former daimyo Shimotsuki Yasuie is shot to death.

The next day, Orochi discovered the secret message spreading among the Kozuki Family loyalists and ordered the arrest of anyone with the crescent moon on their ankle. His and Kaido's forces rounded up dozens of samurai and publicly imprisoned them in Rasetsu Town.[103] That night, Shimotsuki Yasuie allowed himself to be caught by the authorities, claiming to be the legendary thief Ushimitsu Kozo.[104] The next morning, Yasuie was crucified for his crimes at the same time as Komurasaki's funeral procession, which Orochi had broadcasted. Yasuie claimed that the secret message was a joke he made up, and made fun of Orochi, causing the shogun and his forces to shoot him to death.[105] Seeing Toko, Yasuie's daughter, at the scene, Orochi attempted to kill her, but the Straw Hats intervened. They then fought against Orochi's forces, with Zoro nearly killing Orochi.[106]

Big Mom Attacks Queen

An amnesiac Big Mom rampages through the Prisoner Mine.

The Big Mom Pirates attempted to enter Wano to kill Luffy, but were stopped at the top of the waterfall by King.[107] Big Mom fell into the ocean and washed up on Kuri Beach, where Chopper, Momonosuke, Tama, and Kikunojo found her completely amnesiac.[108] They decided to take her to the Prisoner Mine,[109] and after a long journey, Big Mom broke in looking for oshiruko. Not finding any, she took out her rage on Luffy and the All-Star Queen,[110] but regained her memories and fell asleep after Queen dove on her head. Queen immediately departed to take Big Mom to Onigashima, and Luffy staged a revolt with the country's former yakuza boss Hyogoro.[111] Raizo, who had infiltrated the prison to rescue Luffy, discovered that Kawamatsu was imprisoned there and freed him while the prisoner Caribou cut off communications to the rest of Wano.[112] After convening, Luffy and his allies tried to recruit the thousands of prisoners that were there for rebelling, and after facing some opposition eventually managed to get them on their side. The remaining Beasts Pirates stood no chance against Luffy's group, which quickly conquered Udon.[113]

Big Mom was brought to Onigashima, and shortly after reuniting with Kaido, the two of them began fighting for an entire night. After their fight, however, they decided to form an alliance to take over the world.[114]

With thousands of rebels on their side, including the four regional yakuza bosses, the Kozuki Family alliance worked tirelessly to gather weapons and a fleet of ships in the days leading up to the Fire Festival. The time for the final battle finally came, but Orochi received a report that divulged the alliance's movements in great detail. Orochi had all the pathways between Wano's regions cut off and destroyed the alliance's fleet, resulting in the Nine Red Scabbards being completely alone at Tokage Port.[115]


The following events are Non-Canon and therefore not considered part of the Canon story.


One Piece x KyotoEdit

Toratsugu served as a teacher of flower arrangement for the Hitaki Family, the family of the daimyo of the Yo district in Wano Country. Since childhood, he was friends with the princess Kikuhime, and the two gradually came to love each other. They got engaged, but a few days later, Toratsugu witnessed prince Lark murdering the daimyo. Lark pinned the murder on Toratsugu and imprisoned him, with the prince next in line to become daimyo. However, Toratsugu managed to escape his imprisonment the night before his public execution, and came to a beach. Starving, he ate a Devil Fruit, which turned out to be a Mythical Zoan that allows him to transformed into the yokai nue, and he took residence in a mountain temple.[67]

Not too long afterwards, Kikuhime and Lark got engaged, and Toratsugu broke into the mansion where their wedding ceremony was held. He kidnapped Kikuhime, with Lark being unable to take him down, and took his past love to his mountain temple. Lark then approached the Straw Hat Pirates, asking them to go and take down Toratsugu in return for a considerable reward.[67]

Luffy and Toratsugu Save Kikuhime

Toratsugu and the Straw Hats save Kikuhime from Lark.

Shortly afterward, the Straw Hat Pirates reached the temple at the behest of Lark, and Toratsugu battled their captain Monkey D. Luffy. After a brief battle, Toratsugu fell down a ravine, where he transformed back into a human and sustained injuries. He was healed by Chopper, and revealed his past to the Straw Hats. They sympathized with him and agreed to go take down Lark, and Toratsugu took them to him in his nue form despite his injuries.[67]

As the Straw Hats went off, Lark barricaded himself in an encampment and swore to kill Toratsugu as he revealed to Kikuhime that he killed her father. No longer having a use for Kikuhime, Lark pushed her off a balcony, but she was suddenly saved by Luffy as he flew in on Toratsugu. Luffy then defeated Lark with a punch to the face. A banquet was held afterward, and Toratsugu and Kikuhime bid farewell to the Straw Hats as they resumed their life together.[67]


Concludes non-canon section.


Translation and Dub IssuesEdit

The name is a pun, as "Wa no Kuni (和の国? literally meaning "Country of Harmony")" is used as the oldest recorded name for Japan. The kanji for "Wa" appears when Brook mentions the country in the Punk Hazard Arc, but the country's name is written in katakana (ワノ国), where "no" is a part of the name rather than being a possessive article.

TriviaEdit

  • Wano Country is inspired by Feudal Japan, as evidenced by its people, dialect,architecture, culture, and general atmosphere.
  • So far, when a character native to Wano Country has been introduced in the present manga, their information has been seen on a Japanese scroll rather than the regular information box. The country itself was introduced in this way.
    • Momonosuke's fake introduction was an exception (perhaps hinting that the introduction was duplicitous), but when his real identity was given, he also had a scroll.
    • Ryuma was introduced in a different manner, as he predated One Piece and originally first appeared in the oneshot Monsters, and upon reappearing in One Piece, it was not really him, but his reanimated body.
    • When a character is introduced in Wano Country, it has a concave corners rectangle information box.
      • Some Straw Hats were reintroduced in that manner when they appeared as their aliases in Wano.
  • Wano is the first, and so far only, canon location that was first visited during a non-canon story.
  • Instead of the usual "do-don" onomatopoeia Oda uses to introduce new locations or characters, when introducing the Wano Country it is replaced with "be-ben", which represents the strum of a shamisen, a traditional Japanese string instrument.
  • In the anime, Seki ridicules Wano for their lack of affiliation with the World Government, being skeptical that they can even be considered a nation.[116]
