Hey guys! Hope you all are doing well. I’m back here with another interesting theory about One Piece universe. Today’s theory is all about Luffy’s ultimate gear vs Kaido and how strong is Luffy right now. We all know that Luffy has to face a Yonko at Wano Country and today let’s draw a theory of what might happen. As evident this post is full of spoilers so whoever does not like to read spoilers please stay away from this post. So, without further delay let us begin.
It’s almost certain that we are going to see Yonko Kaido in action against Strawhat Luffy. We saw recently in Dressrosa arc that Luffy was able to beat Doflamingo in his gear fourth form. However, I think that gear fourth is on par with Doflamingo because of the drawbacks that Luffy suffers after using the gear fourth. Hadn’t it been for Law and others, Doflamingo would have given him a hard time before eventually losing out to its high power output. But while he was suffering the aftereffects of gear fourth, Doflamingo could certainly have done some serious damage. And so you think, Luffy cannot defeat a Yonko like this. Not at all.
Also, we saw that when Luffy fought against Yonko Big Mom he didn’t even stand a chance against her even in gear fourth. But I will mention that gear fourth is extremely powerful. We saw when Luffy entered gear fourth against Doflamingo, Doflamingo was helpless until Luffy stopped using gear fourth. But the after effects of gear fourth make Luffy vulnerable as he isn’t able to use Haki for almost 10 minutes.
Even though in future Luffy is able to reduce the after effects of gear fourth and is able to use this form for a long period of time. In my opinion, even this isn’t going to be enough to take on Kaido. So, in essence, right now, Kaido is just too strong for Luffy. Kaido is indestructible. But since Luffy is the main character of the series the writers will have to figure out how will Luffy defeat a Yonko. That’s a bug problem. Luffy can also use Future sight Haki which he learned from Katakuri. This gives him a bit of a power boost as he can predict most attack. But he can only do so much without a strong offence.
What could help him is a tag team effort between the Strawhats, Law and his crew and even Captain Kid and others like the Samurai of Wano. So, it’s possible that Strawhats win with the help of all these other players. It is one of the possibilities but I do not think that it is highly likely to happen.
Maybe, Luffy has other tricks that he is yet to use and didn’t use against Doflamingo and Katakuri. Also, now Luffy has improved his observation Haki immensely after facing Katakuri. Also, we didn’t see any specific names for gear second and gear third but gear fourth has its own name and is known as Boundman. So, it opens up the possibilities that gear fourth has multiple different forms as well. Giving gear fourth a specific name implies that he already knows how to use the other forms of the gear fourth which we haven’t even seen yet. Snakeman was the latest Gear 4th form we saw, but I’m sure there are more.
Now, people will ask that why didn’t he use these other forms against Doflamingo and Katakuri? To this, one could say that when he was able to beat them by using Boundman why would Oda disclose his other powers and not save them for Kaido? So, with this being said that Luffy has in addition to Boundman other forms of the gear fourth which are even stronger than Boundman already ready to go.
Again this opens up room for questions then why didn’t he use these forms against Big Mom. Well, as Nami points out that their mission is not to fight but escape. Also, Luffy tells Sanji that he’s going to deliver just one lunch and then escape. Thus, Luffy and co. were focusing on escaping and not fighting so there was no need to show his new powers and Oda may well have saved them for the fight against Kaido. Also, Luffy’s ultimate gear may have more power to offer but might also have significant drawbacks. Luffy only whipped out Snakeman once he Awakened future sight to gain a hand over Katakuri. He could’ve used it from the start, but would’ve failed to win.
Thus, Luffy’s ultimate gear will be shown in extreme conditions and nothing gets more extreme than Kaido. What this downside is I cannot say that yet. All the people understandably seem uncertain about how Luffy will defeat Kaido. And I hope this post was able to give a lot of answers to all of your doubts. So, Monkey D Luffy could be a lot stronger than the people are giving him credit for. Well, I hope for his sake that he certainly has something up his sleeve in order to even fight on oar with Yonko Kaido.
