This is the explanation why the King of Hell became the nickname of Roronoa Zoro.

In the manga and anime One Piece, Zoro is nicknamed the King of Hell. Why was the nickname given to Roronoa Zoro?

Roronoa Zorro himself is expected to be the main character in Onigashima Offensive. There is something interesting about this One Piece character, he was recently dubbed the King of Hell.

Another popular One Piece fan theory is that his left eye was closed to help Zoro maintain control of his Asura powers.

This technique makes Zoro deplete his Armament reserves and Conqueror Haki. However, However, he managed to launch a powerful attack and his range was far.

After defeating his foe, Zoro said he would even “become the King of Hell” to keep his promise to Luffy of never losing again.

That’s why Roronoa Zoro got the nickname King of Hell in the anime and manga One Piece.
