Origins: One Piece
Alias/Aka: Strawhat Luffy
Classification: Human pirate, Supernova (Worst generation pirate star), Devil fruit user (Paramecia type, rubber man)
Threat level: Tiger || Tiger || Tiger+ || Demon || Dragon
Age: 17 (Pre Timeskip), 19 (Post Timeskip)
Powers and abilities: Superhuman Physical Characteristics, Body Control (His Devil Fruit Gomu Gomu No Mi gives him properties of rubber due to which he can stretch his body as he wants), Statistics Amplification (Gear 2 increases his overall Stats considerably, Same with Armament Haki and Gear 4), Enhanced Senses, Precognition (Via Observation Haki), Limited Fire Manipulation (Via Red Hawk), Flight (Can glide through the air at high speeds using the elastic force from his kicks when in Gear 4), Resistance to Electricity Manipulation, Blunt Force and Poison, Aura (Via Conqueror's Haki)
Physical strength: At least Large Building (Stronger than Buchi, whom could do this with a simple stomp) with at least Class 1000 lifting strength (Deflected a small ship to another direction, which Don Krieg tossed. Flung Mohmoo outisde of Arlong Park, which is a massive Sea Creature) || Multi block level striking strength (Overpowered Crocodile's Desert Spada with a punch) || At least Multi block+, likely Town+ level striking (His strikes hurted Enel more than Wiper's Reject Dial) || At least Multi block+, Town+ striking while using Gear 2 (Could match Lucci blow to blow in his Zoan form), higher with Gear 3 || At least town+ in base (millions of tons of strength), mountain level in Gear Third, island in gear fourth with King Kong Gun
Attack potency/Destructive capacity:: At least Large Building (Stronger than Nyaban Brothers). At least Building+ (Could deflect Muggy Ball which destroyed couple of houses in one shot. Shattered Don Krieg's battle armour, which is far stronger than that of Pearl). At least Large Building (Defeated Arlong and destroyed Arlong Park, which is a massive building-like structure, simultaneously) || Multi Block (Overpowered Crocodile's Desert Spada, which yeilded this much energy. Raised a portion of city above the underground chamber they where fighting in) At least Multi block, likely Town+ (Completely overpowered Enel in a single strike and sent him flying while knocking out a huge golden bell in the process) || At least Multi block+ in base (His punches were enough to hurt Blueno while he was using Tekkai. Could match Base Lucci), town+ while using Gear 2 and 3 (Could match Lucci blow to blow in his Zoan Form while using Gear 2, and overpowering him in Gear 3) || City, potentially island smashing with Giganto Thor Axe, King Kong Gun or Elephant Gatling spamming (Destroyed half of Noah, an island sized ship with Elephant Gatling, despite being on the verge of fainting from blood loss. Noah's specific wood hasn't been confirmed, but there are woods in the verse which are capable of bouncing back cannon ball fire, and Noah via feats should be far more resistant than normal wood as Luffy punching Hody Jones smashed a hill sized structure yet it didn't do much damage inside of Noah. Noah was also made to hold over 3 million people inside it. Stronger than Zoro whom performed a mountain level feat vs Pika just recently)
Durability: At least Large Building (Took several strikes from Captain Kuro). At least Building+ (Tanked strikes from Don Krieg while he was using his Battle spear). At least Large Building (Took several attacks from Arlong head on) || Multi Block (Can take more damage than he can dish out) || At least Multi block (Tanked Burn Bazooka from Wiper), likely higher || At least Multi block+ (Could take attacks from base Lucci), Town+ with Gear 2 (Took attacks from Leopard Lucci several times. Survived his strongest Rokuogan, albiet with considerable damage) || At least small mountain (nigh invulnerable to blunt force damage due to his super elastic rubber properties, it'd take at least island+ level force to speculate the possibility of damage this way. Armaments haki can ignore his blunt force immunity however.), Gear 4th drastically heightens his defenses by combining his haki with his super elastic properties, being able to deflect even Doflamingo's attacks without major difficulty.
Speed: At least Supersonic (Could outpace bullets since the very start of the series, calc) || Hypersonic+ (Stretched his hand far enough that it even dwarfed Drum Island Mountains. Said mountains are said to be 5000 meters tall) || Hypersonic+ || Massively Hypersonic in base (Could keep up with base Lucci), higher with Gear 2 (Blueno, from several meters away, was not able to dodge Luffy's Jet Pistol, and was also not able to keep track of Luffy's movements from meters away. On par with Zoan Lucci) || Massively hypersonic+ (4 digits, observation haki grants him a sort of extra sense similar to spidey sense which lets him sense things slightly ahead of time. Has a lot of feats which are easily 3 digits, called Pacifista lasers slow and is easily low 4 digits via scaling)
Intelligence: Low. However is incredibly witty and quick with improvisation, also an experienced fighter, at least nearing battle genius.
Stamina: Extremely high. Can continue fighting with wounds and beatings that would normally kill a human, such as getting his chest pierced from side to side. Climed Drum Rock Mountain while carrying Nami on his back and Sanji with his teeth for more than 3 hours in -50 degree temperature.
Range: Several hundreds of meters
Weaknesses: Cannot swim and becomes immobilized if more than half of his body is covered in water, loses his powers and becomes helpless if more than half of his body is submerged in water. Seastone nullifies his powers. Armament Haki also nullifies his resistance against blunt impact
Standard equipment: None, just his usual attire which includes his inseparable strawhat.
Keys: East Blue Saga || Alabasta Saga || Skypiea Saga || Water 7/Enies Lobby || Dressrosa Saga
Noteworthy techniques and abilities
Gomu Gomu no Mi (Rubber Rubber Fruit): A Paramecia type Devil Fruit, this fruit turns the user’s body into rubber. The fruit’s major strength, as demonstrated by Luffy, is that the person can stretch their body like rubber at will, and makes them almost entirely immune to blunt attacks. The user’s ability to stretch and twist like rubber to extreme lengths not only makes them immune to injuries that originate from such, but it also allows the user to drastically increase the range of what would otherwise be a powerful close range attack, turning it into a devastating mid range attack. A stretched limb can also be used to store potential energy like a stretched spring, increasing the power of an attack. Owing to rubber’s insulating properties, the user is also highly resistant to electrical attacksOne-Shot Techniques
Gomu Gomu no Pistol: Luffy’s signature attack. A standard straight punch, augmented with stretching. This attack can be used from short to long range.
- Gomu Gomu no Twin Pistol: Luffy punches with both arms simultaneously.
- Gomu Gomu no Pistol Shot: Starts off as an ordinary Pistol attack, after which Luffy “twangs” his stretched arm, causing his fist to connect multiple times.
Gomu Gomu no Bullet: Luffy stretches one arm, far behind him while running, then snaps it back to deliver a short-distance, one-fisted powerful blow to an opponent.
Gomu Gomu no Rifle: Similar to the Gomu Gomu no Bullet, but Luffy twists his arm around as he stretches it behind him and hits the opponent at close range, putting a spin on them.
Gomu Gomu no Bazooka: Luffy stretches both his arms far back, and then hurls them forward, striking his opponent with both simultaneously.
Gomu Gomu no Cannon: Luffy builds up speed with a series of quick jabs, but with none of the punches actually making contact with the target(s) at first, and finishes with a single double-fisted blow similar to Bazooka.
Gomu Gomu no Muchi (Whip): Luffy stretches his leg and kicks in a wide circle, striking multiple foes
Gomu Gomu no Stamp: Luffy stretches his leg out and hits his opponent with the bottom of his foot.
Gomu Gomu no Battle Axe: Luffy stretches one leg high into the air, then brings it crashing down on an opponent or structure, for massive damage, strong enough to destroy large buildings and ships in a single hit.
Gomu Gomu no Gatling: Using his stretching capacity to drastically augment the speed at which he brings his fists back and forth, Luffy launches torrent of consecutive punches at super high speeds. The hits land so fast that dozens of punches appear to connect simultaneously.Other Techniques
Gomu Gomu no Rocket: Luffy’s main method of traveling long distances fast. He stretches out one of his arms or both and grabs a handhold, then retracts them, projecting himself high into the air at high speeds, over great distances, or even into an opponent.Gomu Gomu no Gatling: Luffy uses his stretching ability to bring his fists forward repeatedly in a blurry, rapid barrage of strong punches at super high speeds. The hits land so fast that dozens of punches appear to connect simultaneously.
Gear Second: Luffy pumps his blood rapidly with his legs to kick start the process which in turn, increases the speed of his blood flow, thus providing more oxygen and nutrients to various parts of his body which makes him faster and much stronger. It uses even more oxygen and energy, hence using up more food and he has to breathe harder. The increase in his metabolism causes him to be hungrier than usual or even a paralytic type effect after a long usage of it. Can be used to achieve a full body effect, or an effect on any single area of his body (e.g. the arm). The techniques in this mode are basically the same as the regular attacks, but greatly augmented by his enhanced attack speed and, consequently, attack power. The known Gear Second specific techniques are listed below.
- Gomu Gomu no Jet Pistol: An upgraded version of Gomu Gomu no Pistol. He punches so fast that the fist's movement is invisible, and it truly seems like he shoots his opponent. The incredible speed both makes the strike far more powerful, and harder to dodge.
Gear Third: Luffy pumps air through his bones to make them gigantic. This gives his arm more mass and a larger area to attack with far greater strength. Previously Luffy turned into a chibi form after canceling the technique but after the timeskip he no longer shrinks in size. The techniques in this mode are basically the same as the regular attacks, but greatly augmented by his increased mass and power. The known Gear Third specific techniques are listed below.
