One Piece: 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock (& ​​7 Reasons It Should Be Nami)

According to its creator, Eiichiro Oda, romance and pregnancies are not topics of great importance for One Piece. Although the series is not based on the idea of ​​”romance”, that does not mean that there are no signs. As the series has progressed, some possible relationships between its main cast have been announced, especially for the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy.

This made perfect sense to viewers, considering that most of the main characters have a possible epilogue for the conclusion of their respective series. Also, fans dreamed for years who would spend those later years. At the time of writing, there are two consistent perspectives for Luffy’s love life: the pirate empress, Boa Hancock, and the resident Straw Hat navigator and cat thief, Nami. Although at the moment it is unknown which of the two could be Luffy’s Pirate Queen, both have the same arguments why they could end him romantically later.

14 BOA: Has the power to be next to him

One easy thing that could help Boa Hancock to be by Luffy’s side, in the end, is the sheer fact that she has the strength to be by his side during battle. Boa Hancock belongs to Amazon Lily, a community of Amazon women whose leadership and position are based exclusively on strength.

As the ruler of the island, Boa Hancock is the strongest of all, as she boasts the Fruit of Love and incredible Haki. If these two got together, they would be the ultimate power couple.

Although Boa Hancock has a distinct power advantage, Nami more than makes up for it with her brain. It is said that opposites attract and that often means compensating for the other person’s weaknesses. Luffy has a lot of strength, but his biggest weakness has always been his brain. Nami, compared to him, is a world-class scientist / thief.

On a practical level, Nami has the street smarts needed to maintain a good lifestyle after Luffy becomes the Pirate King. On a more macro level, Nami has academic knowledge that can more than make up for Luffy’s shortcomings in the real world.

12 BOA: May be the empress of your emperor1634634706 502 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Status may not mean much to Luffy and the gang, but it can give Boa Hancock a slight edge. While Luffy was pursuing a career to become a Pirate King, he was also in the current discussion to become an Emperor.

With that title in mind, aesthetic symmetry dictates that the pirate empress Boa would be his perfect match. Whether they join in name or simply decide to combine their kingdoms in the future, it’s easy to see Luffy and Boa comfortably seated on twin thrones.

11 NAMI: Helps captain his ship and is his right hand man1634634706 37 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Although Boa Hancock feels like an Amazonian empress, her status doesn’t mean much to Luffy, who openly dismisses any such authority. However, if there’s one figure you can’t ignore, it’s the person who actually runs the show at the Thousand Sunny. Luffy leads the crew through the conceptual contributions, limiting himself to saying “Yes” or “No” to the general ideas for the adventure.

Nami takes it upon herself to make those plans come true, giving direct orders to all crew members so that everyone, on and off the ship, goes in the right direction. Although Luffy and Boa could be a powerful couple in the future, he and Nami already are today.

10 BOA: They have a shared dislike for nobles1634634707 830 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

One of the biggest things that made Boa Hancock fall in love with Luffy in the first place was discovering his assault on Saint Charloss. In addition to her empirical altruism, Boa Hancock found perhaps the only man in the world she could finally trust, which opened a whole door of emotions.

Luffy, for his part, has grown up hating nobles and spoiled people since he was a child and can find a kinship with Boa Hancock for it. I toast that they overthrow the corrupt regime together.

9 NAMI: They feel like a fated association1634634707 664 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Although there are some personal similarities between Luffy and Boa, the story of One Piece He subtly established the idea that he and Nami are meant to be together. At the beginning of the series, Luffy and Nami look at each other by chance after getting caught in a pirate raid.

Since then, the series has provided plenty of screen time for the two of them together, at least compared to the other Straw Hats. Whether in Arlong Park, Skypeia or Punk Hazard, Luffy and Nami are often together during an adventure.

8 BOA: The end of the two together would be parallel to Dragon Ball1634634707 493 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Like others anime of theShonen Jump of his time, One Piece it took a lot from the seminal battle series, Dragon Ball. This included everything from Akira Toriyama’s search for a MacGuffin to the animated, gluttonous main character.

Another similarity that the two series could share could be the fact that their protagonists marry a warrior princess from a strange land. Goku began a lifelong relationship with Chi-Chi during the early years of Dragon Ball, and Luffy could mirror this with Boa Hancock.

7 NAMI: Their ages have a smaller gap1634634707 765 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Small age differences are negligible when it comes to a shipment, but is a bit more pronounced when it comes to a shipment from Luffy and Boa. Boa Hancock is 31 years old in history, twelve more than Luffy’s 19.

On the other hand, Nami is only 20 years old. It is difficult to gauge the romances in the anime using only the age difference, but Nami is closer to Luffy’s age group and that is certainly a relevant point to consider in terms of their compatibility.

6 BOA: They’re Colleagues As Pirate Captains1634634707 729 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

While Nami may be a comrade on Luffy’s ship, Boa Hancock is a colleague of hers as a pirate captain. To some extent, that means these two share a certain ambition and history as leaders.

From an aesthetic point of view, this shows a certain kinship that Nami can only be a stranger unless she starts her crew after the series. If there was a great pirate empire in the future, it could be led by these two seasoned captains.

5 NAMI: He has a much deeper history with Luffy, since he has known him for a longer time1634634708 860 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Nami has known Luffy for the longest time, something Boa cannot compete with. To be fair, Boa Hancock was close to Luffy during the timeskip, which is longer than Luffy’s adventure with the Straw Hats. However, much of that time he had his training in isolation.

For his part, Luffy has known Nami for longer than most of the crew. Furthermore, Nami was one of the first people he was able to see after leaving his hometown. This means that these two shared many adventures and tears, developing a deep relationship that would be difficult for Boa Hancock to maintain.

4 BOA: Harbors real feelings for Luffy1634634708 489 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

Although there is some chemistry between Luffy and Nami, he leans more towards friendship than romance. Neither Luffy nor Nami have come up with anything romantic in the manga or anime.

Meanwhile, Boa Hancock is madly in love with Luffy and has no qualms about it. He is even worried about falling under the love sickness, an ailment that he believed had caused the deaths of the other empresses.

3 NAMI: not afraid to tell Luffy when he’s acting stupid1634634708 334 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

One of the downsides of being with Boa is that she is too in love with Luffy. This makes me forgive each and every one of your shortcomings. Nami, for her part, has never hesitated to let Luffy know when he’s acting like an idiot.

Nami doesn’t hesitate to strangle him for his idiocy. Although this is extreme, it is often necessary when considering Luffy’s hard-headed head. Luffy could do with having someone to help him keep his urges under control, although he would rather lead a carefree life.

2 BOA: He doesn’t care about his past or his heritage1634634708 464 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

When Boa found out about Luffy’s history and specifically his heritage, she didn’t blink, fully believing in the man she knew. He didn’t even care that he was the scion of the world’s worst criminal, Monkey D. Dragon.

His father’s actions did not reflect on Luffy, nor did they erase all the good that Luffy had done. For someone like Boa, who tends to hold grudges, especially against men, the fact that she makes a clean slate with Luffy is very important.

1 NAMI: She has the utmost faith that Luffy will keep her safe1634634708 292 One Piece 7 Reasons Luffy Should Take Down Boa Hancock.webp

There is something to be said in having the utmost faith in someone. Although Boa also trusts Luffy, Nami’s is on a different level. Boa is able to handle herself in a fight, while Nami often has to believe in Luffy’s ability to stay safe.

That kind of trust doesn’t come easily, especially with the frequency with which Nami scolds Luffy. However, she has shown her faith in him on several occasions. For example, when they went up the mountain of beans together or when he called out his name when he was in trouble.
