I honestly don't know what Oda is planning to do with Urouge.
Same at this point. I thought the Kaido meeting would lead to something. I do like the idea of him being Blackbeard's 10th captain though.
With this whole Nika reveal and him being from a sky tribe by the looks of it (I think Birkan potentially?) and given how late game Elaf is being saved for and that it's gonna involve Big Mom and has mentioned Nika in her flashback too, this might all tie together somewhow. It most likely is Shanks' arc hopefully too so there is that well?
Urouge is an insanely wild card and I hope Oda doesn't waset him, Bonney has been made disappointing for me so far too.
Speaking of Elbaf, this picture I found has me really intriguied to see if Oda is gonna do something similar with it:
Maybe if Kuzan really did fake Saul's death and has kept him alive, this could be a sort of tie into "frost giants" of Norse Mythology or something somehow? Lol
Maybe "the Niflheim of OP" is where Oars senior froze to death too?
I know so little about Norse mythology but given how much Oda loves Vicky the Viking and it inspiring OP and how much he seems to love Norse mythology and giants and such, I can imagine he's really going to do a LOT for Elbaf naturally! But then again, Wano has been so lackluster in actual lore/mythology imo, lacking that adventure and such of previous arcs too. So I don't want to get too hopeful for Elbaf either...
