Conqueror’s Haki is the power of kings, a power only one in a million people
Zoro is the second strongest member of the Straw hat pirates since he is stronger than Jinbei. As the vice-captain of the straw hat pirates, will Zoro have Conqueror’s Haki or not?
Conqueror’s Haki is the ability possessed by very few people. It is the ability to intimidate others rendering them unconscious. Although this is the only use of Conqueror’s Haki that has been shown in One Piece manga till now, Conqueror’s Haki is actually much more powerful than this.
It is said that Conqueror’s Haki is possessed by only those people who have the abilities of a king. People who have the will and qualities of a Conqueror and leader. Most of the people who have been shown possessing Conqueror’s Haki are either Kings or have the desire to be kings or are at the very least world renounced leaders.
This is also one of the reasons why some people also believe that Zoro will not have Conqueror’s Haki. They believe that since Zoro’s aim life aim is to be the best swordsman in the world and defeat Hawkeye Mihawk, he may not have conqueror’s Haki.

Why Zoro WILL HAVE Conqueror’s Haki
First off, it’s probably obvious from my title that I believe that Zoro will show signs of having Conqueror’s Haki and will have control over it someday.
Conqueror’s Haki Incident at Fishman Island
The first clue for Zoro’s Conqueror’s Haki was given at Fishman island. When Luffy used Conqueror’s Haki, Zoro said that he expected at least this much from him. Although this seems like an ordinary statement, it implies that Zoro believes that he would be stronger than Luffy if Luffy did not have Conqueror’s Haki strong enough to knock down 50,000 people.
This could mean that Zoro would be stronger due to the presence of his own Conqueror’s Haki. Although this is just speculation, there are many other things to back it up.

Zoro vs Monet – a clue to Conqueror’s Haki?
Ok, I am not saying that it definitely is a clue to Zoro having Conqueror’s Haki, but it potentially could be. When Monet bit Tashiki at punk hazard, Zoro finally entered the battle.
When Zoro looked at Monet with his serious and impulsive eyes, Monet was shaking, terrified and so frozen that she could not even move. This could be fear. Yes, it is possible that she did not expect Zoro to attack a woman and she was completely scared when she saw Zoro heading towards her. But it could also be a sign towards Zoro’s Conqueror’s Haki.
Big shot Conqueror’s Haki users
We have seen that Silvers Rayleigh has Conqueror’s Haki. Time and again we have been shown similarity between Straw Hat Luffy and Gol D. Roger. If there can be similarties between them indivually, then why can there not be similarities in their crew also?
Silvers Rayleigh was Roger’s first mate and Roronoa Zoro was Luffy’s first mate. Silvers Rayleigh is a swordsman, Roronoa Zoro is also a swordsman. Silvers Raileigh was probably the person who respected Roger the most in his crew. Roronoa Zoro is also the person who accepts Luffy the most in among straw hats (MANY MANY INSTANCES TO PROVE THIS).
Shanks vs Hawkeye – Possibility of Zoro having Conqueror’s Haki
We know that Hawkeye once fought Shanks and lost. Knowing how Shanks treated Hawkeye when he came to inform Shanks about Luffy’s bounty, it was clear that Shanks considers Hawkeye a worthy Rival. Yes, it is possible for someone who doesn’t have Conqueror’s Haki to rival a Yonkou, but it is highly unlikely. This leads to the theory that Hawkeye may have Conqueror’s Haki.
Zoro wants to be the strongest swordsman in the world. To become the strongest, he will have to defeat Hawkeye Mihawk. And if Mihawk possesses Conqueror’s Haki, then chances are that Zoro will also have Conqueror’s Haki. And of course, who wouldn’t want to see a sword clash of two Conqueror’s Haki users?

Charlotte Katakuri and Big Mom Pirates
This is probably the most convincing reason that Zoro will have Conqueror’s Haki even though it does not provide any explicit info on it. Big mom pirates are probably the weakest of the Yonkou crews. Yet, Charlotte Karakuri, one of the three sweet generals of Big Mom pirates possesses Conqueror’s Haki.
Seriously dude, if the second strongest member of the weakest Yonkou crew has Conqueror’s Haki, then the second strongest member of the future King of the Pirates’ crew should definitely have it.
Why some people think he doesn’t
I have seen a few posts online which try to convince that Zoro won’t have Haoshoku Haki. The reason being that in the One Piece world, Zoro is not destined to be a King.
Haoshoku Haki is not all about being a king. It’s about being a leader and having the resolve to follow one’s dreams. Yes, not everyone who has the resolve to follow their dream has Haoshoku Haki. I am just saying that one does not have to be destined to be a king or have the desire to be a king to possess conqueror’s Haki.
Look at Katakuri, he’s no king, heck he’s not even a leader (if you say he’s the leader of a part of Big Mom’s fleet, then I say Zoro will be the leader of a part of Straw Hats fleet). Yet, Katakuri possessed the color of Conqueror.
So, Zoro cannot be underestimated. And to all the Zoro fans, here’s a toast to the future strongest swordsman.
