So, after the new revelation about Shanks, everyone’s eyes opened to an old theory that Shanks was indeed a member of the Marines, working with the Gorosei or one of those, to be honest here. Oda simply plays with the minds of his viewers or admirers. Don’t worry, we are here to discuss whether Is Shanks a member of the World Government (Marines) in One Piece or not. Keep in mind, this is a spoiler warning and my own opinion.

The God’s Knight
In the recent Manga Chapter 1054, there have been some shadowy figures known as God’s Knight. They are affiliated with the Gorosei and the World Government in some form or shape.
Here you can see that a figure that looks similar to Shanks is portrayed. There is no other character in the series who looks exactly like Shanks, so that could mean one thing… He is Shanks or he is a copy of Shanks.
Sakazuki also mentioned them and their summoning is a problem for the Marines. It could mean they somehow have more power than the organization itself.
Money D Dragon while discussing the secret attack on Mary Geoise remembered the members quite well. So, they are like a trump card of the Gorosei or the World Government or even the Here is a picture of what the silhouettes are like.
Authority and Power
Monkey D Dragon and Sakazuki, both confirmed one thing God’s knights are power authoritative and powerful than them. They have a special connection to Mary Geoise and are much stronger than the Marines.
Shanks Connection to World Government
In the image, we can see 9 God’s Knights and the front one looks quite similar to Shanks. It could be that he is a member or it could also be that it is a clone or a twin. But one thing that quite makes sure that Shanks is a member of the World Government (Marines) in One Piece, is his meeting with the 5 Elders (Gorosei).
They don’t let anyone have a meeting like this and neither can any pirate meet with the Gorosei in such a manner. They also had respect for the words of Shanks himself. He is a Yonko with a crew and one of the most powerful characters in the series. So, this quite makes a lot of sense that Shanks is a member of the World Government or Marine in a hidden form or shape.
