Zorro Roronoa ( ja ロロノア ・ ゾロ - Roronoa Zoro in the original version, Zoko in the French version of animated) is a character of the Manga One Piece .
PersonalityZorro is a character with the severe, serious and cold paces. Besides the creator of the series compares it with a shark. However, its reactions often comic, awkward and are exaggerated.
At the time of the crossings at sea, one sees it either involving itself or making the nap, which is worth to him often in the last case to be awaked in a rather brutal way. Just like Nami, it has a great resistance to alcohol and one never sees it drunk.
He suffers from a deplorable direction of the orientation and maintains a conflict and competing relation with Sandy, the cook of the ship, with which he disputes constantly, including and especially in full battle. This competition comes owing to the fact that they dispute the title of the 2nd strongest person of the crew after Luffy.
When it fights, Zorro remains always serious, concentrated, and focused on the victory. Its way of apprehending the engagements thus contrasts strongly with that of Luffy or Pipo. Its attitude recalls in a certain way the bushidō of the Samurai Japanese and Vivi gave him the nickname of “ Mister Bushidō ” as of their first meeting. Some of its attacks also refer to Buddhism. As soon as Zorro feels that the combat becomes serious, it detaches its bandana of its arm to put it around the head the made-to-order of the pirates, this shows the respect which Zoro carries to its strongest adversaries.
In its childhood, Zorro was pupil in a Dojo located in the village of Shimotsuki. It specialized in and was already enough strong to beat adults. However, it never managed to gain against Kuina, the girl of the Master. He fought it more: 2000 time, but never succeeds in taking the top. One day, it defied it last once by using this time of genuine weapons, but it was still made beat, truths sabers being heavier than the sabers out of wooden. Zorro cried of frustration to be able to become the best swashbuckler of the world. Kuina divided it-also to it even dream, but as a woman, it knew that while growing it would have never the physical force to arrive there. Zorro was only more mortified by it, because if it had suddenly gained one day against Kuina, it would be impossible for him to know if it were really thanks to its own force. They were made the promise that one of them would become the best swashbuckler of the world. The following day, Kuina made a deadly fall in the staircases and died. Zorro the Jura to be held its promise and required of its Master the Katana of Kuina, the Wado Ichimonji , and developed a new style of combat which it called it, which consists in holding a katana in each hand and that of Kuina in the mouth.
Life at sea
Zorro left the dojo and left to travel from island to island in order to improve. He improvised bargain hunter in order to be able to pay itself to eat and maintain his swords. He became very famous and was called “Zorro the hunter of pirates” ( kaizoku-gari ). About this time, it accepted an offer of Baroque Works, which invited it to come to work for him. It declined the latter, refusing to work for an organization if one did not make him to it chief, and killed the emissary. On the island of Shell, it had a small disagreement with the son of the Colonel Morgan, the chief of the local barracks of the Navy, and was condemned not to eat for one month attached to a cross. Ten days before the end of the sorrow, the Navy decided to carry out it, but it was saved by Monkey D. Luffy which then invited it to belong to its crew of pirates. After refusehaving initially refused while stating not to want to become a gangster, thorough by the events, it ends up deciding that to achieve its dream, little was essential to him to be good or bad as long as its name could make tremble the skies. For Luffy, it appeared natural that the lord of the pirates and the best bretor of the world belonged to the same crew and thus saw no objection to take it as second member of its crew.
At the time of one of its voyages, it met Mihawk one of the seven powerful corsairs, which carried the title of better swashbuckler of the world that it covets, and defied it. But Zorro undergoes a severe defeat and carries since a long scar to the chest. It the Jura more never not to lose a combat before being able to face Mihawk.
At the commencement of the series, Zorro is unable to cut steel with its swords whereas other matters the such rock do not pose any problem to him. In the combat the opponent with the one of the soldiers of Crocodile, Daz Bones alias Mr 1 - a man having eaten the Fruit Gashing , which transforms its body into steel - it will first of all be overcome, none of its attacks not being able to wound its adversary. It will understand thanks to the memory of the words of its Master that for slicing anything, it is necessary to feel his target to live and to breathe . After having heard the breath of steel of Mr 1, it killed it in a blow.
A little later, it developed its own variation of the “ blade slicing the air ”, which as its name indicates it extends and makes it possible Zorro to remotely attack. This technique is named Caliber 36 if launched with a saber, Caliber 72 if launched with two and finally Caliber 108 if launched with three.
Although it the Jura with Luffy not to lose never again, it undergoes a certain disappointment against Ener, which struck down it and thus put it at the carpet.
TechniquesZorro is one of the human characters of One Piece strongest, put besides those having one of the capacities of the fruits of the demon. Zorro acquired its force thanks to its will and its determination, and by being essential a difficult drive. It has an endurance enabling him to survive terrible wounds and great heavy bleeding. Even disarmed, its physical force remains well with the top the average.
Its style of principal combat, the santoryu , consists in fighting with three swords at the same time, one in each hand and between the teeth. Progressively of its adventures, it acquires a whole panel of artful thrusts and the name that it gives them is often a word game: for example, Onigiri can result either in “slicing the demon” (ja 鬼切り), or by “rice pellet” (ja お握り).
Recently, in its combat against Kaku, Zorro showed the Sanmeirokushiu No Kishin , the eyes of the falcon. One knows the name of the technique thanks to a remark of Kaku. The eyes of the falcons would be a technique acquired by the experienced swashbucklers, like Mihawk and Zorro. The cover-chief (bandana for Zorro and hat for Mihawk) with the air to have a role in this technique. One does not know really the effects of these eyes.
Its last technique enabled him to invent a new style of combat: Kyūtōryū or technique with nine sabers. In fact, by using its spiritual concentration, it is able to fight with three sabers by giving the effect to use nine of them, it thus seems Zorro with six arms and three tètes (this effect is undoubtedly borrowed from Senteï Taïsei, hero Japanese which in the legend could appear with several bodies in one).
Moreover, the techniques of Zorro often have a relationship with the animals (rhinoceros, crab, dragon…) it is satisfied to place its sabers in such ways so that they represent the offensive element of the animal in question (bull: horns; crab: grips, etc)
