"One Piece" Chapter 1001 is going to feature a lot of fighting, but fans of Roronoa Zoro could be in for a treat if the latest spoilers are to go by.

Yonko Charlotte Linlin uses a fireball attack against Zoro in the new chapter. According to the latest spoilers, the Straw Hats’ swordsman counters this attack by using Kitsunebiryuu: Homurasaki. This is a fire-cutting attack that Zoro presumably learned from the Akazaya Nine leader, Firefox Kinemon.

The latest spoilers for "One Piece" Chapter 1001 is courtesy of Bang Mi from WorstGen. While the spoilers do not reveal much about the upcoming installment, it mentions that there will be a lot of battles in the chapter. It also notes that Luffy and other Supernovas are doing something, although it does not offer more details about it.

Fans are elated about Zoro getting his hands on Kozuki Oden's Enma. They are hopeful that the former pirate hunter will fight Kaido and make him relive the physical and emotional pain he suffered when Oden cut him a couple of decades ago. However, it appears that it is not going to happen yet in "One Piece" Chapter 1001.

Another set of spoilers from Stairskun mentioned that Marco falls after getting hit by King's attack. The former Whitebeard Pirate's first division commander goes down to the ground along with Queen the Plague. Elsewhere in the spoilers, XDrake appears.

It seems that Marco gets a hand in fighting Kaido's Calamities in XDrake. Granting that the spoilers from Stairskun are accurate, fans might see an unexpected alliance formed between Marco and XDrake. The Straw Hats, regardless of their eagerness to save the Land Of Wano from Kaido's clutches, could not do it by themselves.

At this point, they could use all the help they could get to defeat not only the strongest creature alive but two Emperors of the Sea with seemingly endless power and fighting abilities.

"One Piece" Chapter 1001 is set to arrive on Jan. 17. Fans can expect more details about the incoming manga installment as it gets closer to its official release date.
