Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list with you all regarding characters that have defeated Luffy at some point in time in the series. Most of the big battles that Luffy has been a part of, he gets beaten by that character and then Luffy comes back to beat him up. But not before losing to them, Luffy learnt to get stronger.
Let’s begin the list of top 9 characters that have defeated Luffy
Crocodile was the main villain of the Alabasta arc. He destroyed all of Alabasta with his plans. Crocodile is able to manipulate sand and be sand at will. It seems that he too was the user of awakened devil fruit. When they clashed for the first time, Monkey D Luffy was battered and almost killed by him by twice. Later, Luffy found out a way to defeat crocodile by using sea water.
8. Rob Lucci
Rob Lucci was shown in Water Seven arc. It was at the end of this arc that Monkey D Luffy faced him. All the members of CP-9 battered the Strawhats. Rob Lucci showed how superior at that time he was to Monkey D Luffy. It seemed that no way in hell Luffy could beat him. Later Luffy was given power-ups like gear second and gear third to beat him.
Enel was the main antagonist of the Skypea arc. He is one of the Shandians, and is the user of an extremely powerful logia type devil fruit known as Goro Goro no Mi. It gives him the ability to create, control and transform into electricity. It gives him overpowered abilities, such as moving at the speed of lightning, and many more abilities. When Luffy faced him for the first time, he was easily defeated.
6. Donquixote Doflamingo
Doflamingo was the main villain in the Dressrosa arc. He is the user of the string string fruit which he has already awakened. Doflamingo almost killed both Trafalgar D Law and Monkey D Luffy when he first faced them. Doflamingo seemed to be an undefeatable enemy for Luffy, but then he used his gear fourth for the first time and manhandled Doflamingo. Donquixote remains one of the coolest characters in One Piece.
Fujitora is one of the new marine admirals after the time skip. He has the power of a devil fruit that allows him to control the gravitational forces around him. He also faced Luffy, and Luffy had no answers to his extremely powerful abilities. Even though Luffy seems to be way more powerful than he was before the timeskip, but still defeating Fujitora even right now won’t be a piece of cake for him.
Aokiji, aka Kuzan, is a former Admiral of the marines and currently is a member of Blackbeard’s crew. He has a logia type devil fruit which allows him to create, control and be ice. He also seems to have an awakened devil fruit and also has defeated Luffy long ago. When Luffy faced him, he was no match for him whatsoever. Aokiji almost froze him to death. If his comrades weren’t around, Luffy would have died.
3. Charlotte Katakuri
Katakuri is easily the strongest character in the ranks of Big Mom Pirates, after Linlin, of course. He has the power of future sight haki and also is proficient in other haki types as well. Katakuri is the user of a special paramecia type devil fruit which he even has managed to awaken. He absolutely manhandled Luffy like he hasn’t yet been by anyone in the series. Katakuri could have easily killed him but let him live because he saw some serious potential in him.
Akainu is the current fleet admiral of the marines. He is the user of a logia type awakened devil fruit which allows him to create, transform and be magma itself. Akainu was the one who ended Portgas D Ace’s life and almost killed Monkey D Luffy as well back in Marineford war. Luffy simply was no match for him back then, but right now he could well put up a fight but I don’t think he still can be Akainu just yet.
1. Big Mom
Charlotte Linlin, aka Big Mom, is one of the current four Yonko. She for a brief moment went head-to-head against Monkey D Luffy in the Whole Cake Island arc. Luffy straightaway used his gear fourth form against her, but her haki was way more superior to Luffy’s haki that Luffy, in an instant, fell unconscious. This gives us an idea that Luffy still has a long way to go until he is capable of defeating a Yonko level pirate.
