There are many powerful characters in One Piece who have exploited their authority to spread their influence, and the Gorosei are no exception. They are the leaders of the World Government in the eyes of the general public, making them the most powerful persons on the planet. They are a group of five Celestial Dragons who oversee the Marines and all matters about the allied nations. It wasn’t until lately that the series disclosed their names, as well as their titles.

Saturn’s Abilities Confirm that The Gorosei are not Human

In One Piece chapter 1094, Saturn enters Egghead and transforms into something resembling a Ushi-oni, yokai, from Western Japanese legend. It appears that One Piece chapter 1095 will lay a strong emphasis on the God Valley Incident, which occurred 38 years ago. However, in the flashback, the Gorosei seem the same as they do now, implying that they did not age overnight. The story also demonstrates that Saturn healed relatively soon after Bonney stabbed him. Such healing powers are otherworldly. Also In Chapter 1090, Jaygarcia Saturn urges his underling not to worry about the human losses in the upcoming fight because humans are similar to insects. The fact that they are looking down on all of humanity implies that they are not human.
