One Piece Chapter 1040 Breakdown – Big Mom’s Last Effort
In the cover story, we see Niji and Yonji having a flashback of how Big Mom caught them and stored them in her collection. We move to Kid spamming his Damned Punk towards Big Mom and completely decimating her body. From the outlook, it looks like the attacks went through her.
However, the emperor was known for her sturdiness still recovers. She uses her devil fruit powers to extract the souls of those around her. However, Kid and Law remain unfazed and their souls remain intact. The pirates around a comment that they’re not even afraid of an emperor.
Law uses a new ability that allows him to create a space within which no noise could be heard or transferred, similar to Corazon’s power. Kid delivers a last Damned Punk which finally breaks through Big Mom and she falls down into the hole that Law created earlier.
The New Generation
As Big Mom falls, she asks her homies for help. However, they’re unable to hear her and she finally realizes that. Big Mom accidentally grabs one of the frozen bombs and goes down along with it. An explosion occurs with the bomb that she just picked.
As she falls down, Big Mom has a rollercoaster of thoughts where she blames Roger for creating the great pirate era. Because of his last words, people from the new generation like Kid and Law set out to the sea and now she and other old-timers have to deal with them.
She tells why didn’t Roger just reveal One Piece and its identity before he died. Big Mom speculates if One Piece is even real or not. She thinks that it may have some connection to Wano or if possible, it could very well be in the Wano itself.
With this fall, Big Mom says that Kid and Law better not be happy as she won’t die from this explosion. The narrator declares Law and Kid to be the winner of the battle as their crew rejoice for the big feat that their captains have just achieved.
Yamato manages to freeze the rest of the bombs so that they don’t explode. Also, since Kazenbou got out along with Big Mom, there’s no issue with regard to the explosion. Momonosuke arrives near her and tells her that Zunesha is nearby.
It seems like Yamato has some knowledge about it and she asks if it’s the same elephant from Oden’s novel. Momonosuke replies with the confirmation and says that it’s the same elephant that committed a serious crime 800 years ago and was subjected to punishment. Furthermore, it was the companion of JoyBoy.
