Shortly after the two-year time jump in the story, observant fans noticed that Zoro has a formidable scar over his left eye, which remains permanently closed.

This striking new addition to his appearance, combined with Oda’s propensity for measured planning and foreshadowing of future plot developments, sparked theories that the eye holds special significance.

Some speculate that hiding his undamaged eye could be a self-imposed handicap to challenge Zoro’s intensive sword training. Others believe the eye may harbor secrets from his unrevealed past, or grant him unique abilities yet to be disclosed.

Perhaps it will play a pivotal role during a future clash with his nemesis and reigning world’s greatest swordsman Dracule Mihawk. Or it could simply be a distinctive battle scar for one of One Piece’s most formidable fighters.

Whatever secrets or powers Zoro’s left eye may contain, if any, Oda seems to have long planned this specific disfigurement as an important part of the character’s design.

Using his unique teleportation abilities, he scattered the Straw Hats across the far reaches of the world for their own protection.

Zoro found himself launched by Kuma’s powers to the perilous island of Kuraigana. There, fate presented him with the opportunity to receive intensive training from none other than Dracule Mihawk, Zoro’s longtime rival and the undisputed Greatest Swordsman in the World.

Even luminary creator Nobuhiro Watsuki, best known for the beloved Rurouni Kenshin series, couldn’t contain his curiosity.

He reached out to former assistant Oda to discuss this huge development, referring to conversations they shared decades prior between 1997-2000 when One Piece was just starting out.

Back then, Oda had already outlined to Watsuki key future story beats, including the eventual loss of Zoro’s eye.

But when Watsuki pressed him in 2021 for details on how this shocking injury occurred, Oda declined to reveal anything further.

His coy refusal to share indicates that Zoro’s marred, sightless eye relates directly to monumental events still unfolding in One Piece’s contemporary Wano Country arc, as the series heads toward its long-anticipated conclusion.

Until the final saga discloses all, the cryptic scar stands as a testament to Oda’s legendary vision in charting integrated, meaningful fiction across years and thousands of manga chapters through joy, sorrow, victory, and sacrifice.
