Since the Straw Hat Pirates defeated the Beast Pirates and Big Mom, they have gained the status of the Yonko Crew and have made a big name for themselves. The fight between Kaido and Luffy also brought out the fact that he is the Sun God Nika and has a significant impact on the plot and will continue to have a major influence in the future.

A theory has been making the rounds on the internet that claims each straw hat has some connection to a planet in our solar system because Luffy is the sun god. There are nine planets in all, including Pluto, and nine straw hats in all, omitting Luffy.


This depicted Luffy as the sun of his small solar system, with the planets encircling him as his crew. This theory somewhat makes sense as Oda san has a habit of hiding symbolism behind characters and connecting them to important aspects of the world, be it history or astronomy.
