Luffy is definitely a hero (if inadvertently at times), but that doesn't make him any less dangerous. And given his whim-like nature, any random thought he thinks is cool better come to fruition, or else he'll destroy you and everything you stand for

The problem is that his wishes are reality. He's so strong, and he has such a tight and powerful crew, that these guys will endure hell to make sure Luffy's whims come true (think Zoro absorbing his pain). If I was the World Government, I would fear Luffy. Wouldn't you? You basically can't disagree with him in any way. If you imprison even one member of his crew, he will hunt you and he will beat the hell out of you, and destroy cities to get them back. That makes him super endearing, but also incredibly frightening. It's all about perspective.

It's like cheering for Walter White in Breaking Bad. He's a bad person, but it's from his perspective, and it's about protecting the thing he loves. From almost anyone else's perspective, Luffy is a huge threat because...

1) He may actually obtain the One Piece, which may destroy the world.
2) He has, at this point, a dozen crews and thousands of pirates under his command.
3) He acts on impulse, to the point he would've died without Sanji's sister's mercy.
4) He can defeat pretty much anyone, expect /maybe/ the Admirals and Kuma.

He's actually very scary, especially from the perspective of law and order.

Trust me, I'm wondering what the One Piece is.


i bet oda doesn't even know what the one piece is. It is probably symbolic. He is probably going to pull some evangelion type deal later.


I hope Oda does know what the One Piece is and not pull some last minute crap on the fans.


I don't think most of oda's core audience actually cares what the one piece is at this point. people are probably just trying to keep track of who else the straw hats can fight at this point. I'm waiting for luffy to meet dragon. I bet that arc would be beast. also, the arc where they fight big mam and kaido will be cool.

I actually want to see that Luffy meet his father and learn about his mother.

You know what bugs me about 1Piece. They spend hundreds of episodes looking for one piece when they can just go to KFC and get a 3 piece combo with 2 sides for $5.99.

You're underestimating Goda's writing level. Sorry i'm a big fanboy but just wait and see, Goda never dissapoints


i'm not underestimating oda's writing. he is a great writer and I appreciate one piece altogether for being one of the broadest and most vibrant stories ever told. I give oda credit for crafting a story where, at least from my perspective, i'm invested in the story not for an overarching plotline but just to see the straw hats go, who they fight, and the friends they make. In some ways, one piece is like multiple kinds of adventure stories in one. It is a little like how lord of the rings is more about the journey to mordor then actually being at mordor. one piece is about the journey and not the end result. And being the kind of writer and storyteller that oda is, I believe that he is crafting his narrative with such a broad stroke to get the total amount of exploration and depth into his world as possible. Oda, probably more than any other mangaka, is one of the most hard working and passionate writers that could ever be. I love one piece as well. I started watching in 7th grade and I am still watching. I would never underestimate Oda's writing especially since most of the arcs keep getting better. Most long running anime drag on and progressively get less and less good, but one piece has actually gotten better. Know that I am a one piece fan. It is just that I don't really care what the one piece is. Although I can't speak from oda's perspective, I can't predict when the one piece can even come into play. It will probably only be introduced once luffy and blackbeard finish their fight, but we will just have to see.

dragon is his father. DO you know who dragon is? I bet his mom is dead though. I mean if luffy's father is dragon, someone considered to be the most dangerous person in the world at least from the WG perspective, then it would make sense to think she might be dead. Ace's mom was dead and his dad was Gold D rodger. But this is just speculation

I know Dragon is Luffy's father. Even if Luffy's mother is dead, I still want to know what type of person she was.

Luffy hasn't killed a single person and his bounty is 500 million berries. It says a lot.

it is either between him or dragon. They are the only ones who have taken care of him so that seems reasonable.
