One Piece Chapter 1023 Spoilers

The chapter begins by ensuring King and Queen’s stability, after Zoro and Sanji united on the attack front in the last chapter. The fight between the aforementioned characters is documented. 

Sanji tells Zoro that something strange is happening to him, as he feels rather “weird” after using the Raid Suit. A close up of Sanji’s leg is shown and the fire looks to be rising.

Sanji’s humanity is questioned when Queen begins to taunt him about being a cyborg, stating that his fire legs are machines. However, Sanji is adamant that he is completely human. 

The focus then shifts to the King’s race and Sanji’s Diable Jambe is stated to be of lesser power to the King’s race.

Meanwhile, Hyogoro and Kawamatsu discuss Zoro’s similarities to Ringo’s lord, Shimotsuki Ushimaru, and the iconic legendary samurai, Shimotsuki Ryuma, all while Zoro is fighting with King. The pair comment that Zoro’s swordplay and one-eyed look reminds them of Ryuma.

This chapter also produces three battles: Jack vs. Inuarashi, Perospero vs. Nekomamushi, and Raizou vs. Fukurokuju. 

Additionally, there is a double-page spread of Momonosuke as a 28-year-old, who has transformed into a dragon in the company of Luffy.
