Thought this might be a handy guide to have as a way of keeping track of what happened when during the current flashback arc, especially with corrections being made etc. The timeline will include events we have seen happen as well as events that will eventually happen. Oden’s Story - the Timeline 41+ years ago: Kurozumi Orochi is told by a fortune teller (presumably one of his ancestors) that he will one day become shogun. The pair hatch a plan to steal the title of shogun from the Kozuki family. The fortune teller is the previous user of the Mane Mane no Mi (Bon Clay's Devil Fruit). 41 years ago: The Mountain God incident occurs. Oden is banished by his father. Oden then meets Yasuie and Orochi, and gains Denjiro and Kin’emon as his first retainers. 41-39 years ago*: Oden’s adventure journal. He meets Izo, Kiku, Kanjuro, Raizo and Ashura Doji in that order, all of whom eventually join him. Oden then becomes the Daimyo of Kuri, and the group become his official retainers. Spoiler: * Chapter 962 states that six years pass between Oden becoming the Daimyo of Kuri and Kawamatsu finding Inuarashi/Nekomamushi on the beach. Whilst this may be a translation error due to the timeline change that Oda made (where he moved the start of the flashback backwards from 39 years in the past to 41), it could also be that Oden meeting his samurai and eventually becoming Daimyo occurs over a two-year period. Since no official correction for the “six years have passed and we are 33 years from the present” statement has been released, we can safely assume that Oden becomes Daimyo 39 years before the present day. 38 years ago: The God Valley Incident and the disbanding of the Rocks Pirates. 33 years ago: Oden meets Inuarashi, Nekomamushi and Kawamatsu. They become his retainers as well. 30 years ago: Oden meets Whitebeard and asks to join his crew. During Whitebeard's "trial" to test Oden's determination to join the crew, Oden is washed on to the shore of a "certain island", where he meets Amatsuki Toki. Oden, Toki, Inuarashi, Nekomamushi and Izo join Whitebeard's crew for an adventure. Toki reveals she was born 800 years ago, and is trying to get to Wano. 30 years ago: After reading a news article about the Whitebeard Pirates and the Wano samurai that has joined their crew, a pirate by the name of Gold Roger takes interest in meeting Oden. Roger seems to be familiar with Wano Kuni. 28 years ago: Momonosuke is born on Whitebeard’s ship. Oden is appointed as Whitebeard’s Second Division commander, and he now has a bounty. Teach joins the Whitebeard pirates. 28-26 years ago: Kozuki Sukiyaki dies, and Orochi is appointed as shogun in his place until Oden returns. 26 years ago: Hiyori is born. Oden meets Roger some time after Hiyori’s birth. He ends up joining the Roger Pirates on Roger’s final voyage. 26 years ago: Oden joins Roger’s final voyage. He is present for the events on Skypeia and the reading of the four Road Poneglyphs. He briefly returns to Wano for one of the Road Poneglyphs - his retainers ask him to stay but he finishes the adventure, leaving an ill Hiyori and his two children back on Wano. Oden then sails to Laugh Tale, the final island, with Roger and his crew (minus Shanks and Buggy). 25 years ago: Oden returns to Wano after adventuring with Roger (chapter 958). He returns to find Orochi holding the title of Shogun. Kaido is already supporting Orochi at the time of Oden's return. Oden attacks Orochi. One of Orochi's attendants protects him using the power of the Bari Bari no Mi (Bartolomeo's Devil Fruit). For unknown reasons, Oden begins dancing naked in the streets for money. 24 years ago: Roger is executed. The Great Age of the Pirates begins. The news reaches Oden, who reacts by both laughing and crying. 20 years ago: Orochi makes his move on Kuri. Oden and his scabbards then decide to make their move on Kaido. (with Shinobu's assistance). Oden and his scabbards lose the fight, and are sentenced to be boiled to death. On the day of exectution, Oden asks Kaido and Orochi to allow the individuals who survive the boiling to be pardoned. Kaido accepts these terms, stating if an individual can withstand an hour in the boiling pot, they will be excused. Oden enters the boiling pot alone, carrying his scabbards above his head on a wooden plinth. This event would go on to be known as the Hour of Legends.
