Japanese Name: ジャヤ
Romanized Name: Jaya
English Name: Jaya
Debut: Chapter 222; Episode 146
Region: First half of the Grand Line
Type: Spring Island[1]
Log Change: 3 days

Jaya is a forest-covered spring island in Paradise that was once shaped like a skull and much larger than it is now. Due to over half of it being launched into the White-White Sea by the Knock Up Stream, only the part that makes up the skull's mouth remains.[2] Canonically, it is the fifth place visited by the Straw Hat Pirates on the Grand Line.

History Edit

The island was ruled by the Shandia four hundred years ago, who guarded the Poneglyph located in their city of gold,[3] but they too were launched into the sky.[4]

In present day, however, the island is mostly uninhabited other than a few towns. The island seems to be a major base for pirates, one of which is Mock Town. This is the location of the Jaya Arc. For more information, see Upper Yard.

Trivia Edit

  • The name of the island may be a reference to the real-life Indonesian island of Java, or probably the Island of Papua (Papua was named Irian Jaya before it changed back into Papua in 2003). The Island of Papua has the shape of a bird's head. It should also be noted that the name could be derived from the Sanskrit word "Jayakarta" meaning "victorious deed", which interestingly enough is also the origin of the name of Indonesia's capital city Jakarta.[5]
  • In Indonesian Jaya means "Glory" and "Victory" in Sanskrit and Malay.
  • Islands shaped like skulls are fairly common in fiction involving pirates.
