One Piece: quick explanation of what Haki is and the different types that exist

One of the basic pillars of shonen action manganimes resides in their combats and their power systems. All the greats of the genre have one: Dragon Ball Z the Ki, Bleach the Reiatsu, Naruto the Chakra, Hunter x Hunter the Nen, etc. In One Piece an energy called Haki is used.which is only available to the strongest and has certain variants.

A priori it may seem like a complex system, but the truth is that it is really simple and easy to understand. There are a total of three basic types of Haki, and in case any user gets confused with the names or the different ways in which they can be applied in battle, I am here to dispel any doubts. let’s go with one direct explanation to the point of what this power is and its different uses in fights.
