So fun thing I’ve been working on is the theory that all the Straw Hats are actually based on monsters from various types of media. Some are quite obvious, others may be more of a stretch.

Straw Hats

Monkey D. Luffy – The Monkey King. The captain of the Straw Hats, is quite unique among everyone. The monkey king is the antagonist of the Buddha in Buddhism. This one is obvious. His Devil fruit is revealed top be Hito-Hito no Mi: Model- Hanuman.The recent chapter revealed that Luffy's character is based of a Hindu God, named Hanuman. His Devil Fruit further confirmed it.Zoro – An Asura. Asuras are a clan of power hungry anti gods. Zoro's this foprm was first revealed way back in Ennies Lobby, when he fought kaku. Zoro's Ashura form comprises of 3 head and 6 arms, each weilding a sword. Giving a pretense of a demon Ashura. This one is also obvious.Sanji – Judeochristian Satan. With Sanji’s primary battle strength having the name devil is one connection; however, with Sanji being the Prince of Evil, Prince of Darkness, made this much stronger connection. Sanji's Diable Jambe is one of the most rated and powerful attack of Sanji. It was revealed in his battle against jabura, Ennies Lobby.Usopp – The Deceiver. Usopp's big nose is well renowned in the OP, and his tendency of deciving people by constantly lieing. Similar to the devil but sometimes seen as a different person. The deceiver is a being known as the false god of Judaism. This one is also quite obvious.

Nico Robin – Eve. The woman who bit from the fruit of knowledge. Seeking knowledge deemed taboo by the gods is Robin’s thing. Especially since Robin was seduced by “The Devils of Ohara.” At the age of 13 itself, she was manhunted by World government, because of the threat she posed. She attracted a massive bounty of 79 million berries.

Brook – The Lich. In World of Warcraft and Dungeons and Dragons, the Lich is the highest ranking undead creature. Capable of powerful magic as well as ice based powers.Franky – Frankenstein’s Monster. Franky is both Frankenstein and the monster. Name is pretty obvious, but for those who need convincing, his weird body he made from scraps which gave him advanced powers is like dr. Frankenstein making a super powered monster of parts he found in the graveyard.Nami – The Wicked Witch of the West. Nami is consistently called a witch and with a specialty in weather magic, I think she’ll eventually gain a new and improved tornado tempo as a stronger way of alluding to this.Chopper – The Abominable Snowman. This one is quite obvious. The abominable legend from the peaks of Himalaya. Chopper is that one members of Straw hats who potentially is one opf the loved and fearsome character. His brutal strength that he displayed at Ennies Lobby is yet to be matched.Jinbe – Jaws. Jaws is one of the most well known aquatic monster to date. Since Jinbe is a shark fishman helps; however, his tendency and skill of destroying ships is what strengthens this.What do you all think?Source-
