    Some people speculates that the key is the Chinese Zodiacs. Monkey is the 9th so they say that it has something to do with the 1st which is rat.

    But I won't be surprised if it's just Jinbe.

    Alright. From the image, I can figure that Aokiji is 10. The others? No idea. I reckon you have to know Japanese to solve this since it's probably a play on their names or powers. Most likely powers.

    Agree with this. We need some comments from people very much familiar with Japanese language and culture such as @Seiryu senpai. @Marco Polo senpai, @Chaudfontaine senpai and @sweetjacky senpai, I think you guys can decipher this, too.

    I think this would be a good topic to talk with and decipher while we're waiting for the said chapter.

    PUZZLE TIME

    Not too familiar with Japanese language but your Zodiac theory holds up based on the completed sums with the Marines. Here’s the animals numbered 1-12:

    1. Rat
    2. Ox
    3. Tiger
    4. Rabbit
    5. Dragon
    6. Snake
    7. Horse
    8. Sheep
    9. Monkey
    10. Rooster
    11. Dog
    12. Pig

    Ryokugyu = 2 (Bull)
    Fujitora = 3 (Tiger)
    Kizaru = 9 (Monkey)
    Aokiji = 10 (Rooster is the closest thing to a pheasant)
    Akainu = 11 (Dog)

    As for Luffy, it’d make sense if he were 9 (Monkey D. Luffy), but Kizaru is already 9 so it’d be weird if it was that

    According to the big wide world of Wiki, Luffy is usually represented by the numbers “01” or “56”. I somehow don’t think 56 fits since the answer to the puzzle is 10 (unless they use Germa -66, lol), so I’m going to go with him being number 1

    10-1= 9

    So I think the missing face could be Kizaru?

    Just because Luffy had " 56 " on his shirt as a child and Barto Club being a 56-pirate crew and Straw Hat Grand Fleet being a 5600-pirate fleet doesn't mean Luffy is represented by number "56".

    But i still can't understand why you said Luffy is represented by number " 1 ". You said it's according to Wikia, I didn't find it. Would you post the source ? I just wanna see how they concluded that number 1 usually represents Luffy.

    Colors also don't work. Since luffy doesn't have one? Or it has to be yellow but then again, kizaru is also yellow.

    A brainfart
    New + new = 5
    Current + current = 20
    Retired + retired = 20
    X + new gen = 10

    But that again depends on what each (former/new/current) admiral is. So back to ZakNiks calculation.
    Or it is like Law. Or another new gen pirate to stay in the same category.

    Another brainfart:
    Something with the charachterpolls?

    Just more brainfarting:
    Do we have rats that we came across? Top of mind G8, corondiando or whatever. If you put luffy = kizaru = 9.

    Brainfarting
    Ryo = 8 letters
    Fuji = 9
    Kiza = 6
    Aoki = 6
    Aiki = 6

    Nvm that doesn't work out haha

    We have. The marine rat guy from Arlong Park arc, the secondary antagonist of the arc. He's called Nezumi, a Marine Captain of the 16th Branch in East Blue.

    How about this:

    Luffy is a D. The letter D represents number 4. So the other person must represent number 6, which is represented by the snake in chinese zodiac signs. Boa Hancock !

    For some reasons, "56" is a number tied to Luffy. "01" is Luffy's crew number.

    See “SBS-Based Trivia”

    56 is for Gomu Gomu and 1 is because he’s the first member of his crew
