These demons are literally travelling through hosts. That's nearly identical to Indra and the other guy reincarnating inside Naruto and Sasuke. I mean, I didn't even know Frohze's demon was inside Komatsu, is that confirmed? Cause that's 100% the same scenario as in Naruto.
Those demons are basically the tail beasts. They give you cool powers that makes you superior to the rest but that's about it. They don't shape your personality, change your action or shape your destiny. They are what the fox was to Naruto not that weird reincarnation plot.
In One Piece everyone mentions the uncanny similarities between Roger and Luffy. At first sight it seems Oda dodged the bullet by making Ace Roger's son instead of Luffy, which would be the Naruto approach, but there seems to be some sort of inherited stuff going on.
I always find it funny how Luffy being the son of the most wanted man and the grandson of the hero of the marines is that much better than being the son of Roger. Even is brother is the son of Roger.
Yup with the whole you are not the one Roger was looking for and the proof that destiny exist(Mermaid in FI), I cannot say Luffy is that far from the chosen.
As long as it stays symbolic, as a passing of the torch sort of inherited will scenario, which I'm about 90% certain is where Oda will go for, I'll be happy with it. If Oda goes crazy and turns Luffy into Roger's literal reincarnation, with other characters being literal reincarnations of other dead characters…then I'm gonna cringe hard. Like I'm cringing with this scenario of borrowed demon hosts powers and stuff. Acacia is no longer Acacia, is a demon living inside him called Neo.
Meh I don't need literal. As long as your story is bashing my head with the idea that you are the elected one, it is just as bad. Which is why I basically hate the whole will of D thing. There is just no way that concept of will can end well.
Neo is weird among demons and supposedly Acacia was fine with it as long as he gets to experience new food.
Wait, when was that mentioned, the thing with Roger's DF? If I recall correctly, there's people even wondering ir Roger was the previous Gum Gum fruit user (which would make no sense, considering at least 1 character would've mentioned that once).
Nope, it's that super rare VOALT. We don't know if Roger had a fruit.
