"One Piece" 1020 is still a few days away since the Weekly Shonen Jump is now on hiatus because of the Olympics. Despite that, fans are in for a treat since the spoilers for the upcoming chapter come out early.

The latest set of "One Piece" 1020 is now available online thanks to Korean insiders and Redon of Arlong Park Forums. After several weeks of waiting, fans of Nico Robin would finally get to see their favorite Straw Hat character fighting against Tobi Roppo's Black Maria.

According to the spoilers, Black Maria did something that makes Robin see illusions. However, the Straw Hat's archaeologist still launches an attack against these illusions, which turn out to be Black Maria's minions. "One Piece" 1020 would apparently reveal Black Maria is a living weapon user. Dubbed Wanyudo, her weapon reportedly eats a SMILE fruit.

In the upcoming chapter, fans would also see Brook using his Cold Soul attack against Wanyudo. Black Maria also mocks Sanji and makes fun of how the Straw Hat's cook cried to Robin for help. Robin tells the Tobi Roppo member what Sanji did is something Black Maria could not understand. Robin also regards Sanji as one of the Wings of the Pirate King.

The upcoming manga installment would reportedly offer an update on the future Pirate King. Apparently, Luffy finally regains his consciousness and meets Momonosuke in Chapter 1020.

Luffy asks Momo to transform into a dragon and transport him back to Onigashima. The spoilers also tease that Wet-Haired Caribou watches them from afar, seemingly suggesting the former antagonist and now Luffy's ally will have some role to play in the succeeding installments of the hit manga. The latest set of spoilers also reveal Yamato's Devil Fruit is Oguchi no Makami. Unfortunately, it does not offer any other detail about the said devil fruit.

"One Piece" celebrates its 24th anniversary this month. The upcoming chapter is titled "Robin Vs. Black Maria" and will release on Aug. 1. Fans can look forward to the release of "One Piece" 1020 raw scans next week.
