KEY POINTS

  • A new set of "One Piece" Chapter 998 spoilers surfaced online
  • The upcoming chapter is reportedly titled "Ancient Species"
  • "One Piece" Chapter 998 drops on Dec. 13

"One Piece" 998 would show one-on-one battles between some members of the Straw Hat Pirates and Tobi Roppo, according to the fresh set of spoilers.

One-On-One Battles

Thanks to gyrozepp95, Redon and Korean insiders, the "One Piece" fandom now has an idea of what the upcoming chapter of the popular manga would offer. Based on the spoilers, Jinbei, Franky and Sanji would deal with the members of Tobi Roppo. It turns out that Black Leg Sanji would fight another woman, a feat most fans dread because the Straw Hats' cook could not bring himself to fighting a woman.

The spoilers also mentioned that Jinbei would fight Who's Who. Meanwhile, the anticipated Franky vs. Sasaki battle would also reportedly happen in the upcoming chapter. If X Drake would be considered an honorary member of the Straw Hats, it looks like he would finish what Zoro started in the previous chapter and finally defeat Scratchmen Apoo.

Tobi Roppo Powers

As mentioned in yesterday's spoilers, Chapter 998 would reveal the powers of some of the members of Tobi Roppo. Based on the latest spoilers, Sasaki is a Ryuu Ryuu no Mi Model Triceratops user. Meanwhile, Black Maria is a  Kumo Kumo no Mi model Rosamygale Grauvogeli. Who's Who, on the other hand, is a Neko Neko no Mi model "Sabertooth" or Smilodon user.

Other Exciting Details

Apart from these, Chapter 998 would reportedly show Marco the Phoenix. In the previous chapter, he asked the Straw Hats how he could help them and it looks like he now has something to do in Chater 998. Whitebeard's former first division commander would allegedly use his skill to prevent the spread of the Ice Oni virus. According to the spoilers, the virus engineered by Queen the Plague is dependent on the physical capacity of the person.

"One Piece" Chapter 998 is set to arrive on Dec. 13. There will be no break after the release of the manga, which means "One Piece" Chapter 999 would drop on Dec. 20.
