1. Luffy’s Unique Sense of Morality

Why does Luffy let his enemies live? It’s not just about moral principles. According to One Piece creator, Eiichiro Oda, in that era, everyone uses their lives to fight for their dreams. For an enemy, when their dream shatters, it’s as painful as death. Luffy believes that not killing an enemy gives them a second chance to fight for their dreams. Essentially, he’s letting them experience something more painful than death but also giving them a chance to bounce back. And sometimes, these foes turn into frien.

 

2. Luffy’s Unexpected Dislike

Cherry pie, anyone? Among all the foods Luffy devours, there’s one he surprisingly dislikes: the cherry pie from Mock Town. This might seem trivial, but it’s a fun contrast to his main rival, Blackbeard, who absolutely loves it. Could this be Oda’s way of highlighting their rivalry or just a hint that Blackbeard is indeed Luffy’s final opponent?

 

3. Luffy’s Voice Actresses

Did you know Luffy’s iconic voice is voiced by women? Both in the Japanese and English versions, Luffy’s voice has become globally recognized. Thanks to the brilliant voice acting by Mayumi Tanaka (Japanese version) and Colleen Clinkenbeard (Funimation English Dub), Luffy’s character comes alive. Their talent showcases that gender doesn’t define a character’s voice.

 

4. Luffy and the Pirate King’s Similarities

Two peas in a pod? Luffy’s goal of becoming the Pirate King mirrors that of Gol D. Roger. But their similarities don’t end there. Both have the „D“ initial, hinting at a lineage from an ancient clan. They’re respected by allies and foes alike, possess the Voice of All Things, and even share the same iconic straw hat. It’s like looking into a mirror that spans across time.

 

5. Luffy’s Sunflower Resemblance

A ray of sunshine in the One Piece world. Luffy is likened to a sunflower, symbolizing jubilation and hope. This ties back to the Sun God, Nika, worshipped by slaves as a beacon of liberation. Just like Nika, Luffy brings joy to those oppressed, fighting against tyrants and bringing smiles to the faces of many.

6. Youngest Yonko

A title worth its weight in gold (or berries). After his commendable efforts in the Wano Country arc, Luffy was bestowed with a staggering bounty of 3,000,000,000 berries, earning him the title of one of the new Yonko. This wasn’t just a title; it was a recognition of the Straw Hat crew’s power, marking them as one of the four most formidable pirate crews globally. But what’s even more astonishing? Luffy’s induction made him the youngest pirate ever to achieve the Yonko status, dethroning the previous titleholder, Shanks.

 

7. Luffy’s Reaction to the Love-Love Fruit

Love at first sight? Not for Luffy! Boa Hancock, the Pirate Empress, possesses the Love-Love Fruit’s power, turning anyone who falls for her beauty into stone. But Luffy, in his typical unpredictable fashion, remained unaffected. This sparked numerous debates among fans. Was Luffy immune to love? Or was there another reason? The answer is humorously simple: Luffy’s mind was preoccupied with thoughts of his crewmate, Usopp, during that moment. Talk about unexpected distractions!

 

8. Luffy’s Hatred for Cherry Pie

A culinary aversion with a twist. Luffy’s insatiable appetite is legendary. From mountains of meat to barrels of sake, there’s hardly anything he won’t devour. But there’s one exception: the cherry pie from Mock Town. This particular distaste is intriguing, especially when contrasted with his arch-nemesis, Blackbeard, who relishes it. Could this culinary divide hint at their deeper rivalry, or is it just Oda’s playful way of adding layers to their relationship?

 

9. Resemblance to Sunflower

A symbol of hope and liberation. Eiichiro Oda once mentioned in an SBS that Luffy bears a resemblance to a sunflower. This isn’t just a random comparison. Sunflowers symbolize jubilation, perfectly aligning with Luffy’s devil fruit, the Hito Hito no Mi, Model: Nika. This fruit is associated with the Sun God, Nika, who was worshipped by slaves as a beacon of hope. Much like Nika, Luffy has been a ray of hope for the oppressed, standing up against tyrants and bringing smiles to countless faces.

 

10. The Sun God’s Legacy

Mastering the art of Haki. Luffy’s strength isn’t just about his devil fruit powers. His proficiency in Haki, especially the advanced versions, sets him apart. During the Wano Country arc, Luffy honed his skills in both Armament and Conqueror’s Haki. His mastery over these forms allowed him to challenge and eventually defeat Kaido, ending his tyrannical rule over Wano. But that’s not all; Luffy’s advanced Observation Haki lets him glimpse into the future, a feat only a few have achieved. With these abilities, Luffy is undoubtedly on his way to becoming the Pirate King.
