Thriller Bark

Ghidorah Guy
It's a continuation of various ongoing themes Oda's been highlighting: the further desecration of the dead, the subject of evolution, artificial ( and futile ) attempts to reproduce, copy, and recreate, resurrection..
Ghidorah Guy
But yeah, in a nutshell, Weebil is a hyper-evolved Wanoese White Boar possibly spliced with Whitebeard's DNA in Indigo's lab; one of many such Beast Clones Shiki's cooking up in order to create the most powerful pirate crew and army around, similar to Kaido. Difference is, he's using real animals over SMILES, and he's using the most powerful pirates' DNA as their base.
Ghidorah Guy
Obvious parallels to what Moriah attempted, Germa's clone/genetic modifications, and quite possibly even Vegapunk's own SSG, if it likely does prove to be an extension of the Pacifista initiative, ie a military force of artificial soldiers likewise born out of Vegapunk's science.
Ghidorah Guy
Just as I theorize Weebil will be able to transform into a boar or half-boar man, I'd expect the same from any other so-called Son of Kaido or Daughter of Big Mom who shows up. If you ever read my stuff over at OJ, you know one of my biggest theories was Kaido's power was that of a turtle lol. Perhaps we may yet get a blatant King Bowser Kaido.
Ghidorah Guy
As for Big Mom, I've long theorized she represents on one level Chinese matriarchal goddess Xi Wangu Mu aka the Queen Mother of the West....who started out as a tiger-like bestial spirit before developing into a more benign and far less ferocious figure in both character and appearance. So yeah, Big Mom clone/Tiger mutant "Daughter" of Big Mom Rocks Nu soldier incoming?
Ghidorah Guy
Then again, young Linlin did look like a fucking koala, so some abominable Koala/Big Mom mutant abomination wouldn't be outta left field either, knowing Oda.
Ghidorah Guy
Some other noteworthy "clones" that could pop up? Need I even mention Roger? Some have already put forth theories that the WG would do just that...regardless of whether that pans out or not, I'd imagine Shiki himself would most assuredly try to churn out his own ( bootleg ) version...thus only further burning a target onto his back for Shanks' impending wrath ( yes, Shiki is the pirate Shanks is wary of )
Ghidorah Guy
Another likely candidate for genetic fuckery? Luffy! His fight with his own shadow on Thriller Bark, the brief tussle with his "reflection" during WCI...precursors foreshadowing Luffy's future battle with some kind of duplicate short of a Mecha-Luffy lol. Who's to say the silhouette seen in Sharlay's prophetic vision wasn't simply some horned Luffy clone/mutant?
Ghidorah Guy
Primary reason I see the above happening? Note that one of Monkey KIng Sun Wukong's big opponents from Journey to the West was the Six-eared Macaque demon, a fellow primate spirit with the ability to duplicate both Son's powers AND appearance. I believe Oda will once again tip his hat to the classic tale with a fight between Luffy and some mongoloid mutant clone of his

As I've stated previously, odds are we'll see Judge and the Germa make a return, having either formed an alliance or captured so as to add their scientific expertise to the nascent Shiki/Nu Rocks threat that'll probably emerge onto the open stage on the Strawhats' next stopping point and another pivotal battleground in the upcoming Throne Wars -- Kano
