One Piece is in its Final Saga and is currently in the Egghead Arc. However, the recent chapters are taking a break from the explosive events on Egghead Island and focusing more on the rest of the world. Now that Chapter 1080 has been released, we’re here with One Piece Chapter 1081 spoilers-prediction and release date.
In a flashback, it’s revealed that Blackbeard imprisoned Koby to use him as a bargaining chip to convince the World Government to declare Pirate Island an independent nation.
As Koby tries to help the other prisoners and escape, he finds his teammates from SWORD are on the island to save him. We see Rear Admiral Kujaku, who ate the Whip-Whip Fruit, Lt. Commander Hibari, and Rear Admiral Prince Grus, who ate the Glorp-Glorp Fruit and became a clay man.
This chapter also revealed Blackbeard’s crew and their Devil Fruit powers. Along with Shiryu, we see Avalo Pizarro, who ate the Isle-Isle Fruit, Vasco Shot, who ate the Glug-Glug Fruit, and San Juan Wolf, who ate the Huge-Huge Fruit.
The chapter ends with Monkey D. Garp arriving on Hachinosu, punching a super powerful Haki-infused “Galaxy Fist” to the ground as he declares his displeasure at his precious protege’s kidnapping.

Can SWORD Defeat Blackbeard Pirates?
The ending of Chapter 1080 very clearly implies that there’s going to be a massive battle between the SWORD team and Blackbeard Pirates. It’s also apparent that it will be a sight to see.
Egghead Arc has given the viewers one amazing battle after another, from the rematches between Luffy and Lucci, and Zoro and Kaku, to the shocking fight between Shanks and Kid Pirates, where the Emperor destroyed Eustass Kid and his crew within seconds.
In the case here, the fight between Garp and Blackbeard will definitely be the highlight. But that’s not to say that their respective underlings won’t contribute to the chaos on Hachinosu. And that’s where the question comes: can SWORD really defeat Blackbeard Pirates and save Koby?
To answer that, let’s first examine who will be participating in the upcoming battle. In Chapter 1080, we only see four significant members of the Blackbeard Pirates: Shiryu, Avalo Pizarro, Vasco Shot, and San Juan Wolf, though Teach and Aokiji appear in a flashback.
Similarly, there are only four important SWORD members on Hachinosu: Koby, Hibari, Kujaku, and Prince Grus. Both teams have several underlings, but these will be the major players.
The crew of Blackbeard Pirates all hold Devil Fruit powers, while in SWORD, only Kujaku and Prince Grus have Devil Fruit powers.
Hibari is a very skilled sniper, and Koby is said to be very powerful on his own, though we haven’t seen him in any significant fight.
But judging by the fact that he helped Blackbeard defeat Ochoku, it’s safe to say that he can certainly hold his own in a fight.
Shiryu will prove to be a nuisance with his Clear-Clear Fruit power. Koby doesn’t seem to have a Devil Fruit, so he must be very proficient in Haki. He could use his Kenbunshoku Haki to deal with Shiryu.
Kujaku is a tamer woman who can whip even a building to submission. So, it will be interesting to see her fight Avalo Pizarro with his Isle-Isle Fruit.
Sniper Hibari can go up against Vasco Shot, a drunkard with the Glug-Glug Fruit, and Prince Grus, the Clay Man, can be the opponent of the Great Battleship, San Juan Wolf.
Most importantly, Garp will be fighting either Blackbeard. The outcome of this fight is difficult to predict because no matter how powerful Garp is, we shouldn’t underestimate Blackbeard, who not only holds the strongest Paramecia power but also the power of the mysterious Darkness-Darkness Fruit.
But there’s a great chance that the SWORD team will be victorious in these fights and save Koby. Though, the possibility of the opposite is just as high. We’ll just have to wait and see.
One Piece Chapter 1081 Spoilers-Prediction
Seeing as the ending of the last chapter, we can safely predict that One Piece Chapter 1081 will also be set in Hachinosu Garp’s arrival on Hachinosu means big business, and the next chapter will no doubt feature an intense battle between Garp and the Blackbeard Pirates.
Garp vs. Blackbeard will be a highlight for the arc, but it’s more likely that his commanders will fight Garp before the boss comes out.
It’s easy to guess that Garp obviously will give everyone a run for their money if his Galaxy Impact is anything to go by.
The next chapter will possibly also feature the SWORD team dealing with the criminals on the island. Another exciting thing that can come out of the next chapter is Aokiji coming face to face with Garp.
Their interaction will be interesting as Aokiji was once favored by Garp, and his current position puts him at odds with the legendary hero of the Marines. But Aokiji is most likely on an undercover mission, and that makes it even more intriguing.
One Piece will be the Cover of WSJ Magazine Issue No. 21 and One Piece Chapter 1081 will have a Colored Page.
