Ok.. he got determination and all but that was in East Blue the weakest Ocean. Also, all the people he fought against had weak devil fruit power or just above human power. I think Luffy need some sore of new power or something. For ex., LogueTown, Luffy pretty much wasn't able to defeat Smoke. Heck, it wasn't able to even touch dude then next thing you know a wind controller come in and kick everyone behind. Later on Luffy met his bro Fire Ken Ace, Luffy said that he could never beat Ace before when Ace didn't had Devil Fruit while Luffy Had. Imagine Ace that stronger and working for Whitebread who probably maybe 5times stronger than Ace. Oh yeah, remember Shank scare away that beast to save Luffy, well I thought it was some bum beast but I didn't know it was the Demon King or something like that. Crap, and it seem Shank is on par with Mihawk. K, finish. Anyone have something that could make me feel better about luffy situation?

He's lucky and he has useful friends, that's why he can beat guys stronger than himself.

haha just keep watching my friends. Luffy is worth 30 million beli which is not only the heaviest on East Blue, but one of the highest even in the Grand Line. Remeber Arlong was a member of one of the Sichibukai the 7 powers of the seas.

if u havent read the manga:


LUffy beats crocodile, one of the 7, his bounty goes up 100 million beli. Zoro's current bounty is 60 million beli for defeating 200 bounty hunters by himself. Another crew member later to join them is worth 79 million beli. THey are a strong group.

I saw when he beat that dude. I'm talking about Shank, Fire ken Ace's boss and many other. I could see Zoro and Sanji power increase but Luffy ability seem to not have anything special after seeing other ppl specialty. Oh well, lets wait.

use spoiler tags... most ppl wouldnt know who Ace is.

White beard and Shanks are the strongest pirates in the world. Even stronger than the 7 schibukais. Luffy's rubber power can be used it a lot of ways. Plus hes gotten stronger and smarter.

SPOILERS

U r misunderstood. Luffy isnt all about punchy punch strength etc. Instead, he do one thing that no other can do. Which is...

Luffy always do the IMPPOSSIBLE! Luffy's determination overcomes all sorts of obstacles. The way he overcome obstacles is illogical but always work.

Remember the time he caught arlong when he use his special when even the strong zorro and sanji warn him not to? Because they think its impossible? Or at the ending when Arlong's sword was on lufee, lufee was so angry he hold on to it and arlong cant even move the sword?

When Lufee is very angry and serious, he is stronger even then the 7 Sichibukai. Or at least he is stronger then one of them, arlong.

One thing i like about One Piece so much is how Luffy overcomes immpossible situations using ways that doesnt seem to work which work. Lufee is to me, someone who doesnt wait for miracles, he makes one and he always do. Just that he is usually cheerful thats why not even half of his strength is used.

Luffy's seeming constant smile and carefree way of handling things is just something else. Plus he heals the fastest of anyone I've seen. That boy can get major league f'ed up and come back swinging. Sheesh.

But yeah, the sword thing with Arlong surprised me too. For Arlong to get worried when Luffy grabbed his sword, that tells you something.

You're all misunderstanding Arlong. He ISN'T one of the shichibukai. He was part of Jinbei's crew, and Jinbei is the merman in the shichibukai.

Vicious
2003-12-11, 19:22
Like El Diablo-san said, Arlong wasn't part of the Shichibukai, but the merman Jinbei is. Arlong was just too weak to be part of the Shichibukai. You'll see later members of the Shichibukai have bounty around 300 million beri, they just kick major asses :D

Anyways, Luffy has a long path to become the King of Pirates and find One Piece. But he'll make it at the end.

Mr. Bushido

i dont think anyone said that arlong was one of the schibukai. Arlong used to be amongst the crew of one. He broke apart from it and went into East Blue.

Luffy will so become the Pirate King, although it's going to take a really long time, since the series is huge and still on going. The craziest thing of all will be finding out what the heck 'One Piece' the treasure actually is, I doubt that even the creater knows at this point.

i think it will be a single piece of gold.

well since im a writer im gonna have to say this: Ure probably right. He might have not decided wat One Piece exactly is, or he might have decided on it when he started it. I personally would not have been prepared for immense popularity like OP has gotten. Notice how Luffy's crew is already in the Grand Line, its possible tat he was planning to end there, but when it gained such popularity he extended the story line by ALOT. Its just something i might have done as a writer. (amatuer of course ^^)

Edit: I give out false info about Mihawk. Misread the dialogue

Dragon Flame

Mr. Bushido

I did warn when saying watch eps 50 and up. Beside it was in eps 26 or 27 when Johnny or teh other guy was explaining to Luffy and Sanji about the shibukai and how Arlong was related to them and how they are pirate that was permitted by the marine. Then he told them how Mihawk killed one of the shibukai

Vicious
2003-12-12, 13:22
Uh... Mihawk didn't kill anyone of the Shichibukai, as far as I remember. If he did so, it was to take his place in the Shichibukai. So he became the 7th Shichibukai by then.

The Shichibukai always need to be 7 pirates choosen by the Marine. Like when Luffy beat Crocodile, Lafeita recommended his Capt. Blackbeard to fullfill Crocodile's place.

Sorry, misread the whole thing. Mihawk actually is 1 of the 7 shichibukai.
