While we now know that Luffy holds the power of Nika, the God of the Sun, a question arises: who are the other three Gods?
Warning, this article contains spoilers from the latest released chapters of One Piece. We recommend that you be up to date or stop reading.
In the last chapters of One Piece, history has revealed to us that there are indeed Gods in the universe created by Eiichiro Oda. Indeed, during his confrontation with Kaido, Luffy discovers that his devil fruit was never the Gomu Gomu no Mi, but the Hito Hito no Mi: Model Nika Sun God.
In Mont Blanc Noland’s flashback to Skypiea, four gods have been revealed. And while there aren’t many of them, they’re still incredibly powerful, as we saw with Luffy when the latter activated his Gear 5. Here’s our theory on who the four Gods of One Piece.
One Piece: Four Gods? Really ?
As we explained to you previously, the flashback of Mont Blanc Noland allowed us to learn that there are four Gods in the universe of One Piece : the Sun God, the Rain God, the Forest God and the Earth God. Although we now know that Luffy’s Devil Fruit was related to the Sun God Nika, we still don’t know who the characters are who inherited the powers of the other three Gods.
For the time being, it is not certain that known characters are in possession of said powers. Nevertheless, taking into account the revelations of the last chapters, as well as the number of mysteries to be solved, it would be coherent that characters already present in the history of One Piece be holders of the powers of the three other Gods.
Monkey D. Luffy: Sun God Nika – Power Confirmed
For the moment, only Luffy is officially the holder of the power of one of the four Gods mentioned above. Indeed, after his fight against Kaido, Luffy was visibly dead. That’s when Luffy’s true Devil Fruit powers awakenedthus allowing us to realize thatit was actually the Hito Hito no Mi: Sun God Nika Model. Thus, by activating his Gear 5, Luffy is now able to use all the powers of Nika, God of the Sun.
Luffy is now the first “God” of One Piece, but we do not know, for the moment, all that he is really capable of. According to the World Government, the fruit of the Sun God offers to him who ate it ” the most ridiculous powers » of all the Devil Fruits, thus offering its holder a body with the properties of rubber and the facies of a cartoon character. This therefore explains why Luffy was immune to electricity, but also his ability to stretch his body to gigantic proportions. Also, when using Gear 5, Luffy can now apply these properties to his environment, whether it’s objects or people.
