Roronoa Zoro is the combatant of the Straw Hat Pirates and one of the strongest swordsmen in the world of One Piece. He practices the famous Three-Sword Style, also known as Santoryu. Zoro is known to carry three blades and currently, he wields the Wado Ichimonji, Sandai Kitetsu, and Enma.
Apart from Wado Ichimonji, Zoro’s other two blades have kept changing or getting upgraded. In the future, he is likely to upgrade his weaponry further to get even stronger. Here are 5 swords that Roronoa Zoro might get in the future, and 5 that he never will.
10 Might Get: Nidai Kitetsu
Nidai Kitetsu is one of the 21 O Wazamono grade swords and is currently in the possession of Tenguyama Hitetsu, although he doesn’t use it himself. Like the Sandai Kitetsu, this sword is cursed, and whoever wields it is known to die a tragic and violent death.
Zoro, having already conquered the spirit of the Sandai Kitetsu, could possibly be looking at the Nidai Kitetsu in the future and wield it.
9 Will Never Wield: Yoru
The famous black blade, Yoru is the sword of the greatest swordsman in the world of One Piece, Dracule Mihawk. It is one of the 12 Saijo O Wazamono grade swords, meaning it is of the highest quality and is a weapon worthy of the strongest.
Yoru, being Mihawk’s blade, will obviously not fall in Zoro’s hands. Furthermore, Zoro practices the Three-Sword Style which Yoru simply isn’t made for.
8 Might Get: Shodai Kitetsu
Shodai Kitetsu is the strongest of the Kitetsu blades and one of the 12 Saijo O Wazamono grade swords, just like Yoru. This sword hasn’t made an appearance in One Piece yet, however, it will be introduced in time.
Zoro, having already been used to the Sandai Kitetsu, could possibly see it as a replacement for the blade. In due time, Zoro would need powerful weapons that will help him overcome the likes of Dracule Mihawk.
7 Won’t Get: Gryphon
Gryphon is wielded by none other than the Yonko Red-Haired Shanks of the Red-Hair Pirates. This sword doesn’t have a given rank, but it is likely among the 12 Saijo O Wazamono grade swords.
Being Shanks’ sword, it is highly unlikely for Zoro to get his hands on this one. Furthermore, Zoro is known to wield katanas, which Gryphon cannot be classified as. There is absolutely no chance for Zoro to make use of this blade.
6 Might Get: Shusui
Shusui is one of the few Kokuto in the world of One Piece and a blade that was once wielded by the famous Sword God Ryuma. It was also wielded by Zoro for quite some time, however, he returned it to Wano in exchange for Enma.
Shusui is known to be the treasure of Wano Country, however, if Zoro does help in freeing Wano, it is possible that he’ll be seen as a man worthy of wielding Shusui. Enma could be returned to Hiyori, who would give Shusui back to Roronoa Zoro.
5 Won’t Get: Ame no Habakiri
One of the 21 O Wazamono grade swords, Ame no Habakiri is the second blade of Kozuki Oden that he left for his son, Kozuki Momonosuke. This blade is also known as the sword that can cut heavens.
Although Zoro does wield one of Oden’s sword, the second one is for Momonosuke to use when he comes of age. It is highly unlikely that Zoro will ever even get to lay his hand on this weapon.
4 Might Get: Kokuto: Enma
Roronoa Zoro already wields Enma, one of the 21 O Wazamono grade swords. This sword was given to him by Kozuki Hiyori on the condition that he return Shusui to the Land of Wano.
While Enma is quite powerful, it isn’t at its strongest yet. In time, this blade could completely transform and become Kokuto Enma. While technically the same sword, Enma would gain an upgrade in rank and powers, making it a completely new and stronger weapon for Zoro to use.
3 Won’t Get: Kikoku
Kikoku is a cursed sword of an unknown rank that is wielded by none other than Trafalgar Law of the Heart Pirates. This sword is known to be quite powerful, however, what exactly its curse is isn’t known yet.
As Law’s go-to weapon, it is impossible for Zoro to get his hands on Kikoku. He already has his hands full with three Katanas.
2 Might Get: Kokuto: Wado Ichimonji
Wado Ichimonji is another blade that Zoro already carries. Like Enma, this blade was crafted by a man named Shimotsuki Kouzaburou. Since all the blades can be transformed into black blades, Wado Ichimonji is no exception.
Once it blackens, it will turn into a completely new sword for Zoro to use that is much stronger than the ones he’s used to date. It will also become one of the Saijo O Wazamono grade swords.
1 Won’t Get: Pretzel
Pretzel is a broadsword that is used by one of the Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates, Charlotte Cracker. Although the rank of this sword isn’t mentioned, Cracker mentioned that this sword has no peers.
Although Pretzel is a blade worthy of being carried and used in battle, it is already in Cracker’s possession. Furthermore, this sword isn’t like any of the Katanas that Zoro is skilled in wielding.
In One Piece, Zoro is the best swordsmen of the Straw Hat Pirates. He wields three swords, which occasionally get switched out or upgraded.
