Who is “The Man Marked by Flames” Kid and Killer referring to?

Who is The Man Marked by Flames

One Piece chapter 1056 is out and it was like any other week a typical Oda chapter. The latest One Piece chapter was very packed with much information. Also, 1056 carried some reveals and left some questions.

Two people left the biggest and most confusing question. First, it was Caribou, and then it was Eustass Kid. Caribou after hearing Luffy and the “Straw Hat” talking came to know about the shocking ‘Pluton’ revelation. In this chapter, he talks about a certain man’ who might be interested in that information.

Right after the Caribou part, we see another mysterious character’s introduction typically in Oda fashion. After receiving their second ‘Road Poneglyph’, Kid and Killer talk about getting One Piece. Killer says they need to defeat ‘that’ man whom Kid refers to as “the man marked by flames”. This one phrase spread flames in the One Piece fan world. People started theorizing and predicting who he might be. We are gonna try to break it down a little with all the little info we have.

Who is “The Man Marked by Flames”?

First of all, are Caribou and Kid referring to the same person? The second question is, does Law and Robin can be aware of that person? Third, how important is that person for going to ‘Laugh Tale’? Fourth and last, is it a person we know, or is it someone totally new?

Jaguar D. Saul

Is Saul Alive?

After reaching Chapter 1066 we can almost certainly say Jaguar D. Saul is the man marked by flames. He was frozen by Aokiji in Ohara and was thought to be dead. However, in the latest chapter, we came to know that he survived. So there is a massive chance of him being the “Man with the Burnt Mark”.

We saw a silhouette of him which was covered in bandages. So while being frozen, his ice might have melted in the fire of burning Ohara. We saw Luffy and Robin surviving an attack like that by Aokiji. We also get to know he has recovered the books of Ohara. Right now, he is hiding in Elbaf. So the man Kid is searching for might be in Elbaf and it is Jaguar D. Saul. However, it is still not confirmed so we have to wait for further information.

Monkey D. Dragon

Monkey D. Dragon

Many also think it might be the Revolutionary Army leader Monkey D. Dragon. His face tattoo might be a scar of fire. He is the infamous Supreme Commander of the Revolutionary Army whose goal is to overthrow the world government. He might have some information about world history and Laugh Tale.



As people are predicting, it might be Blackbeard but it is hard to say he has any direct information about ‘Laugh Tale’. We know Black Beard Mythos has been spread among multiple characters in One Piece and the actual Black Beard is heavily tied to Xebec. So Oda taking this piece of Black Beard lore and applying it to Xebec makes sense.


Sabo flame

Many predict that the man might be Sabo as he was also recently announced the ‘Flame Emperor’. But I do not find any reason sabo knows about One Piece.


Kuzan fire burn from One Piece with glasses

Then there is ‘Aokiji’. People he might be the one seeing Robin has a reaction to the comment.

Another Survivor of Ohara


Some people also predicted and to be the most probable option is a survivor of Ohara. After the buster was called in Ohara, someone might have survived who had the scar from that attack. This also might be connected to the reactions of Robin and Law.

Member of Roger Pirate

Any surviving members of Roger pirate. As we know roger pirate goes to laugh tale excluding Buggy and Shanks maybe they have info about it.

Overall, the conclusion of this discussion is still unclear. Many predicted these awesome ideas but we still know Oda. he might throw a curveball to introduce a totally new character. Yes, even after 1056 chapters we might get introduced to a character who is essential to One piece and we never heard of him.

So look forward to the upcoming chapters because we are traveling to ‘Laugh tale’ soon in the Final Saga and also getting these reveals soon enough.
