One of the things about Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga series that gets the most attention and praise is the writing and more especially the long-term story. Even when things seem to be going normally, it seems like Oda is always hinting at or setting up future events or storylines in his series. So far, there are several cases of this in the series, and by the time One Piece’s last chapter comes out, fans will likely be able to name even more.
In the same way, most of Oda’s brilliant foreshadowing is only seen after the fact, which adds to the idea that more foreshadowing will be found when the series is over. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that fans are just now finding out about a mind-blowing hint about the Cross Guild that Oda put into the series years before it came out. Follow along as this piece explains in detail how One Piece predicted the formation of its latest world power years before it was seen.

One Piece Chapter 0 Sees Cross Guild Founding Members Foreshadowed, With 2 More Eventual Members Possibly Set Up
Chapter 0 is a special chapter that came out in volume 0 at the same time as Chapter 565. It is also known as One Piece Chapter 565.5. The story shows what happened 20–25 years before the main character, Monkey D. Luffy, started his journey. The issue also tells the story of Shiki the Golden Lion, who will be the main bad guy in the Strong World movie.
Here we have a recent tweet related to the open-piece:

The chapter really starts three years before the Age of Pirates, when Shiki meets up with the former Pirate King Gol D. Roger. Vice Admiral Monkey D. Garp is shown hearing about the fight and talking about it with Admiral Sengoku, who later becomes Fleet Admiral. Shiki loses the fight with Roger, and the story then goes two years into the future.
In One Piece Chapter 0, Shiki attacks the Marine Headquarters because Roger was taken by the Marines and he is angry about it. Here, he fights Garp and Sengoku, but he is caught and sent to Impel Down, even though he leveled up half of Marineford before giving up. Here, the issue shows that Gecko Moria, Crocodile, Dracula Mihawk, Buggy the Clown, and Don Quixote Doflamingo were all there when Roger was killed.
These 5 are shown in panels next to each other, with Mihawk, Buggy, and Crocodile all in the middle next to each other. These three people are also the leaders of the Cross Guild group of today. Even though it’s possible that it’s just an accident, fans of the series know that it’s not. They see the scene as yet another brilliant piece of foreshadowing by Oda.
Fans are also excited about the idea that it might have shown who the next big names are that will be joining the Cross Guild. Gecko Moria is a new possibility, but Donquixote Doflamingo has been thought to join for a long time.
