Whitebeard said that when "the one" Gol D. Roger has been waiting shows up, he'll find the One Piece and he will turn the whole world upside down. I can't recall any statement that declares that One Piece is some kind of a treasure like gold or something.

It is just said that it is Gol D. Roger's treasure which he left in that place. So I wonder if it has ever been stated that One Piece is something tangible or something theoretical, something virtual?

Oda himself confirmed in an interview with Momoko Sakura that the One Piece isn't something like "the journey itself was the real treasure" and that it is, in fact, a physical reward.

There is confirmation that the treasure will not be a spiritual gift.

Oda:"Yes, I already decided on how it's going to end. Should I tell you now?"

Sakura:" .... Well, I want to know, but I probably shouldn't. BUT, the One Piece, it's not something like "the growth your heart went through", right?"

Oda:"Hahaha, no no, I won't be pulling off some kind of Wizard of Oz thing like that. After having gone through an adventure like that, it wouldn't be fair to not actually give them a reward."

  • The reference that wikia use to claim that's a physical is the one you quote. Hasn't he said what kind of reward One Piece is clearly? Dec 25, 2015 at 14:31

    No he hasn't. That would kind of defeat the purpose of the "mysterious aura" behind the treasure. All that's been about the treasure is what has been stated above. Dec 25, 2015 at 14:41
