In the most recent chapter, Dr. Vegapunk, one of One Piece’s most eagerly anticipated character introductions, was finally revealed.
The majority of the scientific advancements in the story, which are frequently employed by the World Government for sinister purposes, are frequently credited to One Piece Vegapunk, who has long been regarded as the most intelligent character in the One Piece universe.

The Pacifistas and the Seraphim were created by the true nature of Devil Fruits, One Piece’s dominant power system, which also mentored and collaborated with prominent villains and was indirectly responsible for Franky’s time-skipping power-up.
The plot has been influenced by Vegapunk for more than ten years, but the character has never truly made an appearance until now. Fans disagree on whether Vegapunk has actually materialized, though.
The Straw Hats followed the log posture to an adjacent island called Egghead after departing Wano for the first time in ages. A robotic shark was hunting them down in the waters below as they capsized the Thousand Sunny as a result of the treacherous path. The rescue was provided by a weird robot that resembled Iron Giant and beat the shark into submission.
However, those who remained on the Sunny were greeted by a figure who emerged from the robot and identified themselves as Dr. Vegapunk. Luffy, Chopper, Jinbe, and the recently acquired Jewelry Bonney were separated from the crew.
Most fans anticipated seeing an elderly, deranged mad scientist a la Back to the Future, thus they were shocked to discover One Piece Vegapunk as a young woman.
How Will One Piece Vegapunk Change Everything?
It’s challenging to foresee how the characters in One Piece will look because it’s obvious that Oda enjoys creating them much. The aesthetic variety in One Piece is vast, whether it is an imposing character like Akainu or a bizarre character like Ivankov.
The appearance of One Piece Vegapunk had been hinted at early in the series as being exactly what viewers were expecting: a standard scientist.
Why the rapid change then?
It wouldn’t be the first time that Oda had modified character designs, to start. In more recent times, Admiral Greenbull’s silhouetted appearance at the conclusion of the Whole Cake Island Arc was significantly different from his final appearance, and that was only a few years ago.
The first teased appearances of the Yonko were dramatically different from what they ultimately became.
Fans have good cause to think that Vegapunk’s unveiled design is now a bit of a red herring.
Two of Vegapunk’s inventions were displayed in Chapter 1061: the enormous robot and the mechanical shark. The numbers 12 and 03, respectively, were written on each of these inventions. There is another set of numbers on Vegapunk’s chest: 02.
In the concluding chapter of One Piece, there are still a lot of unanswered questions.
After the enormous battle at Wano, the “Egghead” storyline sprang out of nowhere, yet it was just what the tale needed to slow down.
Fans can’t wait for the next episode to air and speculate different outcomes.
