How Did Zoro Lose His Eye: Surpassing the 1000th episode and chapter mark is something that many manga and anime have not been able to do in the last several decades. But One Piece is that brilliant piece of the story that has done both of those in merely two years. With a story as elaborate as this one, there are bound to be theories and question marks that fans constantly debate about. One such theory that has been under the radar for the longest time is about Zoro. Luffy’s best acquaintance and one of the most important parts of the Straw Hat pirates continue to hide the mystery behind his estranged scare.

His left eye has always been covered with a scar, giving the appearance that he does not have the eye at all. Some say that he holds immense power inside that eye. Meanwhile, others argue that this scar has a backstory that Zoro has been hiding from everyone. So, how exactly Did Zoro Lose His Eye? We are here with all the answers that you have been looking for.

In Which Episode Did Zoro Lose His Eye?

It all started when the Straw Hat pirates had to disband their team and follow separate paths. After a two-year time skip in the 517th episode of One Piece, it turned out that Zoro had come back with more than just himself. In that two years of time, the teammate had acquired a large scar that had almost taken out his eye. In the episode, titled “A New Chapter Begins- The Straw Hat Crew Reunites!” it was the first time that fans had come across the lost eye.

Even after crossing the 1000th episode, the anime still has not addressed the question of ‘How Did Zoro Lose His Eye?’ However, there is one theory that fans believe will come true at some point of time in the manga. Further, author Eiichiro Oda has also made any statement in regards to the same. But let’s take a look at the theory that talks about the mystery behind the scar.

In the Dressora Arc of OP, Zoro went on an adventure to an island in the New World. There, he met with a stranger who sold swords. This was where he found his best mate for life- the Sandai Kitetsu Sword. The vendor has warned him of discretion as the sword was cursed with strong and dark powers. However, it was much later in the story that these dark powers began to surface. During his fight with Kaku in Enies Lobby, Zoro lost all control over his calm.

He got so angry that even the CP9 has to back off from Nico Robin. However, Zoro was quick to channelize his anger into a final move. This was the first time readers witnessed the 9-sword style demon Ashura attack. Fans were quick to notice that the demon residing in the sword was not just trapped in it. Instead, it had the capability to charge out any time it was penetrated.

The Theory Of Cursed Swords

Now that we have gathered evidence of a beast residing in Zoro, let us also decipher the mystery behind his scar. To answer the question, how did Zoro lose his eye, it can be assumed that it was Mihawk’s idea to trap the beast right inside Roronoa himself. After training with him for several years, he must have found a way to trap it inside of his eye. This can also answer why Zoro can possess the split personalities of Cavendish and Hakuba.
