One Piece Chapter 969 has yet to be officially released, but spoilers are already surfacing on the web. The upcoming chapter is set to feature the continuation of the flashback of Lord Kozuki Oden when he returned to the Land of Wano after his journey with the Roger Pirates came to an end. It would also reveal the epic battle involving former Warlord and Thriller Bark Pirates captain Gecko Moria and Beast Pirates captain Emperor Kaido.
The previous chapter of One Piece showed Lord Oden heading to Shogun Kurozumi Orochi's mansion to avenge Lady Kozuki Toki and his family. Though it appeared that he was about to succeed with his plan, spoilers for Chapter 969 -- which are available on Reddit -- reveal that Orochi was unscathed. Before Oden cut the shogun's body into half, one of his allies, Kurozumi Semimaru, interfered.
As mentioned in the new spoilers, Semimaru was the former owner of Bari Bari no Mi, a type of devil fruit that enables the user to create barriers for defending and attacking. With the help of Semimaru, Shogun Orochi managed to put Lord Oden into jail. Oden demanded Orochi give him back the title that was intended for him. As expected, the shogun refused.
One Piece Chapter 969 spoilers reveal that Shogun Orochi fooled the people of the Land of Wano, this time with the help of another ally, Kurozumi Higurashi. He was the former owner of Mane Mane no Mi, a type of devil fruit that enables the user to turn into a physical double of anyone he or she touches. Since being imprisoned by Orochi, Oden had experienced a lot of unpleasant things.
While in jail, Lord Oden heard the news about the execution of Pirate King Gol D. Roger. He was also forced to dance every day for five years after Shogun Orochi and Emperor Kaido promised to free Hyogoro of the Flower and his family, and the people working at the factories. However, Orochi wasn't true to his word and told Oden that they didn't really have any intention of fulfilling their promise. Oden finally reached his limits and decided to gather the Nine Red Scabbards and his followers to try to take down Orochi and Kaido.While the spoilers for One Piece Chapter 969 mainly focus on Lord Oden's misery, it also revealed the clash between Moria and Emperor Kaido in the Land of Wano. The battle happened two years after Oden returned to the location and took place in Ringo. It was also the same time the corpse and the sword of Sword God Ryuma were stolen.
