Every single direction given to him by anyone gets puzzled in his mind and he gets lost in the end. He gets lost even when someone simply tells him to go straight. Why is Zoro's sense of direction so poor to the point of being ridiculous? Is there an in-universe explanation?

At the end of the Dressrosa arc if you guys remember, Zoro was even mocked by Trafalgar D Law for getting lost when going a short distance away. so, Law was forced to move him with his ROOM ability. Zoro himself looked very embarrassed at that time when Law mocked him.

  • It is undetermined as of now. We don't necessarily KNOW if it is canon because in the show it would say how Zoro uses the clouds for navigation. So it most likely IS canon but we don't know for sure. Hope this helps :). Sep 27 at 17:44
  • @Tristan-_- as mentioned by Matthew F in answer section, in the beginning of the show he can sense direction but maybe after getting Wado Ichimonji: One of the 21 Great Grade Meito. Forged by the legendary Wano swordsmith Shimotsuki Kozaburo, he is not able to recognize direction well, maybe it is because of early use of Haki embedded sword, because his new sword Enma has same abilities of Haki...

There is no in-universe explanation. This is just a character trait that Oda gave him for ... some reason. Maybe there's an explanation on in SBS.

Can't say on if it's cannon or not, but in one of the video games, there was a conversation between Zoro and Nami where Zoro said that he uses clouds as landmarks.

  • I remember this too. It's from the show/manga, and it's when Nami was sick, which is the reason why Zoro was steering the ship. Sep 27 at 19:35

In the beginning of the show, they showed kid Zoro using his sense of direction, so it must have been something like hitting his head as a kid or being hung on a cross by some marine captain for a few days.
