He never separates from his straw hat

Luffy never leaves his straw hat.

It’s fine. If you are a loyal follower of the series, surely you know some of the luffy’s manias like the obsession with the pirate flag or his fondness for the hat. East straw hat was given to him by Shanks before leaving and urged him to return it when they met again. That moment has not yet come, but it is surprising that Luffy never leaves the straw hat and he gets nervous if he gets lost. The only time he left the hat to anyone was to Nami at the Arlong Park Arch, becoming a gesture with a lot of meaning emotional.

Luffy always uses nicknames to taunt his rivals


Foxy, “by the part” to Luffy

Actually, Luffy has a trouble remembering names of his enemies. This causes him to call you anything and even give you ridiculous nicknames about your appearance. One of the most obvious examples was call the pirate Foxy “split hair”, referencing her strange hairstyle. This demoralizes the proudest pirate and in Foxy’s case sinks him. As a curiosity, good hancock She presented herself as a fearsome enemy, but Luffy called her by name from the get-go. The Snake Princess interpreted this as a show of affection towards her and he is not mistaken. Luffy only remembers the names of his friends.

It belonged to the Eleven Supernovae

The Worst Generation One Piece

The pirates that form the worst generation of One Piece.

One Piece offers many names to define the pirates for their rewards. Surely you’ve heard of the worst generation many times, but they really are known as the Eleven Supernovae. It is about a group of rookie pirates who came to the Sabaody Archipelago with a bounty greater than 100 million of berries. The group is made up of Eustass Kid, Basil Hawkins, X drake, Trafalgar Law, Scratchmen Apoo, Killer, Jewelry Bonney, Capone Bege, Urouge, Roronoa Zoro and Luffy himself.

Luffy would be Brazilian in real life

Surprising right? Eiichiro Oda has a great sense of humor And he shows it even when answering questions from fans. Some time ago he was asked about the nationalities of each character of the Mugiwara and said that Luffy would be Brazilian. Zoro would be Japanese, Franky American, and Sanji French, for example. Without a doubt, it was a revelation for the followers of the series who did not imagine that Nami could be swedish.

Shortened their life expectancy

Emporio Ivankov

Ivankov can control human hormones at will.

It is a detail that you cannot ignore. Luffy’s life suffers and it shortens little by little, especially when you use the Second Gear. The series does not give more concrete information about it, but his arrival at the prison of Impel Down took its toll. Magellan poisoned Luffy, so Ivankov saved his life by injecting him with his miraculous hormones. This could kill or heal you, but it would take 10 years of their life expectancy.

He hates anyone who treats his nakamas badly

Angry luffy

Luffy gets angry a few times.

The Eiichiro Oda series has a strong component about friendship, so it is a very present value in Luffy. The protagonist admires and has a special affection for his crewmates or nakamas. Along the way, he has encountered pirates who do not treat their nakamas well and would even sacrifice them without thinking twice. This pissed off Luffy a lot and he demonstrates it in a very expressive way, as could be seen with Donquixote Doflamingo. He used Bellamy to kill him, even if it cost him his life.

He did not want to know what the One Piece is

Luffy missed

Luffy, the protagonist of One Piece

The Sabaody archipelago was very important to advance the main plot. Luffy finally meet Rayleight, one of the few men who know everything about the existence of the One Piece, as well as its location. Luffy had a chance to know what the mysterious treasure is, but he refused so that he would not take away the illusion to achieve his goal and will give it up. And what he says makes perfect sense because if One Piece doesn’t exist, what motivation could he have to continue?

Luffy bears an enormous physical resemblance to King of the Pirates

Gol D. Roger as a young man

Gol D. Roger as a young man bears an enormous resemblance to Luffy.

And not just physical, since Luffy has taken many early Gol D. Roger to be a good pirate. In the flashbacks we have seen about the youth of Gol D. Roger you can see this resemblance to Luffy because he even had a straw hat just like it. This resemblance is not accidental and Eiichiro Oda has always looked for these parallels with the protagonist. So for one thing or another, many characters in the series see in Luffy the next King of the Pirates.

Luffy has no interest in love

Luffy and Boa Hancock make a good team

Boa Hancock is in love with Luffy.

Rarely do One Piece characters fall in love, not counting sanji. But also this feeling has no place in Luffy’s mentality that remains oblivious to any love interest. He is clear about his objectives and according to Eiichiro Oda Luffy is in love with the adventure of finding the One Piece. However, he does not express feelings of love for any woman, not even boa hancock. This characteristic of Luffy makes him totally immune to Boa’s powers, in addition to not understanding her intentions.

He was the only one who faced a Tenryuubito


A Tenryuubito faced Luffy.

Like we have already said, Sabaody was an exciting arc at all levels. For the first time the followers met the world nobles who are protected by the World Government. No one dares to face them, they have slaves and they don’t hesitate to kill if necessary. However, this attitude was enough to anger Luffy who did not hesitate to hit him despite the consequences that could bring. It was certainly a reckless act that only he dared to do it.

These are some of the Luffy’s most important curiosities that maybe you did not know. These are details that may have gone unnoticed, but they really have a lot of relevance to meet the pirate in deep.
