Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Something has been bugging me about the entire series of One Piece. What if the pirates are actually the good guys while the World Government is bad? Now hear me out when I say this. The pirates just want to be free from the tyranny of the World Government and some of them take it too far. The World Government has been the bad guys ever since the time of the Ancient Kingdom. They're controlling and they take their power too far while the pirates are just trying to distance themselves from the WG(World Government.). Luffy and the other Straw Hats are actually the few good pirates who want freedom from the WG. While all the other pirates are being bad or their version of good, Luffy and the others are the only ones who doing the right thing. And because of this they are hated by the WG for their actions. Gol D,. Roger was probably a good pirate who has angered the WG for finding the One Piece and starting piracy. Maybe the One Piece will lead to the destruction of the WG if found. Any pirate who finds it a basically out to destroy the WG.


I know this sounds silly but this has been stuck on my mind for a while. What do you think about it? Let me know where I went wrong with this.


Enjoy!!!!

There are probably no 'good guys' in One Piece.

The only "good guys" are Luffy and the other Straw Hats.

You're pretty on point with the overall theme so far. Luffy and pirates like him are more interested in freedom that the World Government finds a threat.

WG also protects some countries from pirates.

Pirates don't work, they just go from place to place, taking resources (food, money, etc). What if the pirates run out of money, oh, they have to steal now.

It works if you are in favor of the caste system they have with the nobles and their slaves. The creation of the WG sounds evil, but we've only heard one side of the story. We don't even know if the Sea Kings were a problem. Or those Ancient Weapons.

Eh. Every character in one piece is an asshole to some extent anyway.

Well some of the pirates take it to the extreme. They go around doing all that stuff probably for a their own sense of freedom. The WG are doing good but in eyes of pirates who want to be free their obviously bad. There isn't much to go on since the series hasn't come to an end yet .We still know nothing about the ancient weapons along with the ancient kingdom.


Mind you this was just a thought that I had.

The World Government are the puppet agency of the Celestial Dragons which maintains the world order where they are in charge. If you want a "good" vs. "bad" parallel where the WG is "bad" then the "good" guys would be the Revolutionary Army (since their sole purpose is to overthrow the World Government).

There are all types of pirates in the OP world. Some are solely interested in wealth and others (like the Strawhats) are anti-establishment. One of the recurring themes in OP is that you should judge individuals by their actions instead of automatically assuming they're good or bad based on the flag they sail under.

If I recall the Celestial Dragons are the descendants of the Twelve Kingdoms that took down the Ancient Kingdom, right? I'm such a fool I forgot about the Celestial Dragons who are an even serious threat than the WG.

Yes, and they originally established the World Government. They're now the world's overlords and are entrenched in the "Holy Land" of Mariejois.

Finding the One Piece will probably not only destroy the WG but the Celestial Dragons too.

well, there are more good pirates than there are good marine in one piece so your argument makes sense. If oda didn't want the pirates to be perceived as good, then luffy might have been a marine, but he was a pirate. I'm surprised that people didn't already think this
