Ever since the One Piece community discovered that Devil Fruits could “awaken” a hidden destructive power like no other, has wondered what is the power behind Monkey D. Luffy, the protagonist of this story.
Some of the awakenings seen in the 1,000 episodes of One Piece are as devastating as Katakuri’s that allows you to have complete control of your environment and others are an evolution of your power like Doflamingo’s. Recently, in chapter 1030 of the One Piece manga, we saw the awakening of Kid and Law’s abilities against Big Mama.
In his case, his awakenings were an extension of his basic abilities, like Monkey D. Luffy when he activated his different gears. Although this may have been a mere coincidence, it opens the debate of what form our protagonist’s awakening will take, so let’s review what we know so far.
Los gears de Monkey D. Luffy en One Piece
The gears were Luffy’s first power boost in One Piece and they gave our protagonist a major power boost.. For example, Gear Second increases blood flow by using your body and rubber cells to fill your capillaries, allowing you to gain an increase in your physical abilities with which to defeat your enemies. Although, this power can affect your health if you use it often.
As for Gear Third, after biting his thumb to the bone and inflating it as high as he can, Luffy was able to grow his body to the size of a giant. Unfortunately, When the effect of this technique ends, this pirate becomes a fraction of his original size seen in One Piece, becoming very weak and vulnerable.
Due to the physical wear and tear and commitment to his integrity, Luffy has chosen to only wear them when necessary, such as with his fight with Lucci. In fact, In that confrontation he learned that its use could lead to death, as Law and Kid have learned in their confrontation with Big Mama..
Finally, Gear Fourth is the most powerful of his powers, but also the one that brings the most consequences to the pirate. Like Gear Third seen in One Piece, Luffy’s muscles inflate and grow, after being covered with Haki weaponry. This devastating ability allowed him to take down Doflamingo and Katakuri at the same time.
For now, this is the ability most similar to the one we will have when Luffy’s awakening in One Piece and allows us to know what could be the form that he will adapt. So, while some fans wonder if it will be more like Kid or Law, allowing him to turn his surroundings into rubber or an extension of his strength and ability. We hope to see you very soon.
Meanwhile, we will have the live-action from One Piece to the long awaited awakening of Monkey D. Luffy, and as evidenced by the special illustrations by Latina artists like Cecel, it seems his fandom is more excited than usual.
She posted in her personal Twitter account a series of illustrations that capture the essence of each crew member of The Straw Hat Pirates from One Piece and how they would celebrate their arrival aboard the Going Merry with the Netflix live-action cast.
