In today’s list, I will be talking about the top reason why Monkey D. Luffy is dying, what has shortened his life so much and what is going to happen to him.
1. Gears 2 & 3
During the Enies Lobby Arc, Robin Lucci pointed out that Luffy Gear 2, is shortening his life by using it as it strains his body to another level. The good news post time-skip, Luffy has managed to master his Gears and won’t shorten his life like before. Have you noticed after using 3rd Gear, he doesn’t shrink anymore?
2. Magellan’s Hydra
Luffy wanted to liberate Ace from Impel Down but he ended up fighting Magellan, he wanted to know how he could infiltrate Impel Down. Luffy not wanting to sell out his friend Boa Hancock, didn’t sell her out. During their fight Luffy started hitting Magellan but only injuring himself with Magellan’s Hydra, he also breathed out a Poison Cloud into the air which made Luffy weaker and weaker until he couldn’t fight anymore, his body started failing him and couldn’t move. Magellan covered Luffy’s body with Hydra and told him he only had 24 hours to live.
3. Emporio Ivankov’s Healing Hormone
After the incident with Magellan, Luffy was being cured by Emporio Ivankov by giving him the Healing Hormone alongside Tension Hormone. The Healing Hormone cuts 10 years lifespan on the receiver so Luffy had 10 years removed from him. The Tension Hormone have 2 side effects, one feeling tired after it wears out and feeling nauseous. Receving one shot from the Tension Hormone will give that effect but Luffy has 2 shots which after it’s effect he couldn’t move at all and the Healing Hormone. I believe it removed more than just 10 years from him as his body was already decaying from poison and over use from all the adrenaline he received.
4. Gear 4
Whilst in Rusukaina, Luffy managed to master Gear 2 and 3rd. Luffy uses 2nd Gear for a shorter period just several seconds than before as he knows it takes a lot of energy and he could use that energy for Gear 4 when encountering deadly opponents. He also mastered 3rd Gear as after he uses it, he doesn’t shrink but with Gear 4 he has a time limit on it. This shows us that he still hasn’t mastered it yet and decreases his lifespan. The reason being, he hasn’t controlled the full potential of Gear 4 and this will lead into misuse and damaging himself in the process.
5. Bonus: What Will Happen To Him?
Since the beginning of One Piece, we have seen Monkey D. luffy pushing himself to the limit numerous times and this will have a major effect on his decreasing lifespan. Will he die from an incurable disease due to his overuse of his powers?
I don’t believe that Luffy’s powers will eventually kill him but One Piece isn’t eternal and one day Oda has to decide to finish this tale the best way he can and I believe as we have seen before with Gol D. Roger and Whitebeard’s death, Luffy surely has to die the same way with a big smile on his face, visiting Raftel, seeing what the One Piece is and yell out that the One Piece is real just before his final breath.
That’s it from me hope you enjoyed it and see you on the next one guys.
7 One Piece Characters Who Can Defeat A Yonkō
Welcome back guys, in this list we will see the top 7 One Piece Characters Who Can Defeat A Yonkō. Few pirates may achieve this so I chose to do a list from all the characters around the World of One Piece just from the anime.
In the One Piece anime, we know of 5 with the status of Yonkō but there are 4 at a time. Whitebeard was a Yonko but died during the Paramount War in Marineford after enduring 267 sword wounds, 152 bullet shots and 46 cannon balls whilst receiving 0 scars on his back. That is the raw power of a Yonko. The other 4 that are present are Big Mom, Kaido, Blackbeard and Shanks.
As the main protagonist of the One Piece, he is meant to do great, overcome obstacles and grow exponentially each time. He is going to face 3 Yonkō with what has happened in the story so far, he has unfinished business with Big Mom, he wants control over Fishman Island. Having Jack being defeated by Zunisha, Yonkō Kaido holds a grudge against the Mink Tribe and the Straw Hat crew. Las but not least Monkey D. Luffy has to face Blackbeard and avenge his late brother Portgas D. Ace.
But let’s not rush to conclusions he first needs to face Big Mom in the Whole Cake Island Arc. Big Mom is one tough cookie. Her best attack is to steal lifespan and it is deadly as she took 40 years away from her own sons Charlotte Opera and Charlotte Moscato whilst craving for croquembouche. Soul-Pocus is its name, it comes with one weakness, if the opponent fears death even for a second, she can use this to take all his lifespan and die, this were Luffy has the upper hand as he doesn’t care about fearing death and we have seen it couple of times like for instance back in Loguetown.
As I said before, her weakness is Zoro’s strong point as he has no conception of fearing death either. Remember back when he met Bartolomeo Kuma? He had multiple injuries, had suffered from other injuries inflicted by Oars and Ryuma prior meeting Kuma and he accepted to take all Luffy’s injuries whilst Kuma told him he will die upon receiving them.
He just took it and left faith to decide. He is resilient, every time he falls, he gets up stronger and doesn’t back down a good fight. Many debate who is stronger Zoro or Luffy as both got stronger than ever but we must wait and see what Zoro will offer us soon.
Zoro’s best chance to defeat a Yonkō is against Blackbeard. Now, Blackbeard owns 2 devil fruits, the Yami Yami no Mi and the Gura Gura no Mi. The Yami Yami no Mi is a special Devil Fruit that it allows the user to nullify the Devil Fruit of the opponent once touched. It also can be used to suck the opponent’s devil fruit making the opponent sucked up until the user can grab him. These two attacks together are devastating but Zoro didn’t eat one so he has the upper hand, adding his attacks on to that too makes him stronger as Blackbeard after eating the yami yami no mi feels the pain by direct attacks more than the average human.
But then comes his other power Gura Gura no Mi, the strongest paramecia devil fruit which can destroy the world. It allows the user to create vibrations in the air. In the Marineford War Whitebeard brought a Tsunami by this power and destroying Marineford with it. If Zoro and Sanji got together to fight Blackbeard they will have a greater chance in winning.
One of the best battles in my opinion would be Zoro vs Kaido. It’s just my fantasy to see them both head to head, having the fight of the century. It would be nice to see Zoro win against Kaido but with his abilities so far, it seems a very long shot we still have to see how developed Zoro has become.
Monkey D. Dragon
Little is known about Monkey D. Dragon but his name is very powerful in the One Piece story. He is the head of the organisation called The Revolutionary Army aiming on dethroning The World Government and create their own system. His name is so powerful that his epithet is The World’s Most Dangerous Criminal. Blackbeard recently destroyed their base at Baltigo.
