Born on the 23rd of June; a boy, Luffy, sails from the East Blue Sea to the Grand Line searching for the legendary treasure, One Piece, to achieve success Gol D. Roger as King of the Pirates. Luffy, captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, recruits crew members, fights antagonists, and aids and befriends the inhabitants of several islands on his journey. Usually cheerful, he becomes serious when he fights. Luffy uses his elasticity to concentrate his power, executing a variety of attacks. In his signature attack, Gum-Gum Pistol, he slingshots punches at opponents from a distance.
Luffy appears generally in most of the episodes, films, television specials and OVAs of the manga’s anime adaptations and many of the franchise’s video gaming. Because of the series’ international popularity, Luffy is becoming among the world’s most recognizable anime characters. As well as the One Piece franchise, the type has appeared in several manga and anime series and collaborative video gaming. His critical reception offers been largely positive.
Luffy’s rubberiness is because eating a Devil Fruit named Gomo-Gomo fruit, making him immune to electric attacks & most blunt forces also gives him the capability to stretch his body at will. He uses his elasticity to accelerate part or most of his body to provide punches, kicks, head butts, and body checks or for propulsion. Like others subjected to Devil Fruit, Luffy cannot swim; when he’s submerged in drinking water or contacts the Sea-Prism Stone, he loses his strength and cannot move by himself. Furthermore to his Devil Fruit powers, he provides immense strength, durability, speed, reflexes, agility, endurance and stamina.
Luffy’s signature attack may be the Gum-Gum Pistol, a punch which he learned during years of training. Another technique developed later in the series is Second Gear (ギア2セカンド, Gia Sekando), increasing his strength and speed for a short while but straining his body. Observing CP9’s Shave (剃, Soru) technique, Luffy adapted the proceed to his rubber body and matched the assassins’ speed. Third Gear (ギア3サード, Gia Sādo), another technique, uses air in his bones to attack but makes him shrink afterward. Luffy may use both techniques simultaneously; after 2 yrs, he has gained better control of the techniques and is no more suffering from their drawbacks.
Eventually, Luffy develops his latent capability to use Haki (覇気, ambition). This ability offers two main types: Armament Haki (武装色の覇気, Busōshoku no Haki), an armor-like force that may amplify defense and the force of attacks and negate a Devil Fruit user’s defense, allow physical contact and damage, and Observation Haki (見聞色の覇気, Kenbunshoku no Haki), a sixth sense that may read someone’s moves and detect their presence. He also offers a rare third type, the Conquering King’s Haki (覇王色の覇気, Haōshoku no Haki), that may render people or animals near him unconscious. 2 yrs later, Luffy learns the essential three types of Haki and uses them along with his improved attacks. Due to his encounter with Magellan, he in addition has developed an immunity to poison (though it is shown a strong poison may affect him, albeit very slowly). During his fight Charlotte Katakuri, Luffy’s Observation Haki gains the capability to observe several seconds in to the potential. During his period at Udon prison in Wano, Luffy’s Armament Haki gains the capability to shoot a short stream of Haki from a distance that may also go inside his target’s body or objects and destroy it from within.
Luffy develops another technique, Fourth Gear (ギア4フォース, Gia Fōsu) (similar to Third Gear), inflating his muscles to improve how big is his limbs (aside from his legs). He could make destructive moves by compressing and releasing his limbs, and may fly in an identical fashion to CP9’s Moon Walk (月歩, Geppō) technique.
