Gear 4th – “Plastic Man” – Luffy’s Malleable Rubber Awakening – Ch.849+ [Spoilers]

Yo guys! Buffy-san here with a little re-freshener theory. The deal is, I want to explain how would this Elastic, I mean, this MALLEABLE RUBBER awakening work!

FIRST OF ALL!

Luffy’s malleable rubber awakening has been foreshadowed from GOMU GOMU NO UFO,
(GOMU GOMU NO UFO)
in other words, one of Luffy’s basic powers/abilities, what will be mentioned a bit later!

If you remember Baby 5’s Buki Buki no Mi, then I tell you, this will be the awakening form of Luffy! In other words –

THE PLASTIC-MAN.


Because it’s obvious, Luffy’s Devil Fruit is rubber. But if he adds the awakening of his Devil fruit, he will get a BUBBLE-GUM Logia-type body.

Why would Luffy’s awakening form be similar to Baby 5’s Buki Buki no Mi?

The reason, Luffy might be split into pieces, just like a Bubble-Gum.

(Baby 5 reforming after being split to pieces from the missile explosion)
And he obviously needs time to gather up himself again, so that means he will have an enjoyment of immunity against the sharp things!

And why Bubble Gum? why not anything else?
BECAUSE!
Bubble gum is also a rubber, and it’s made by PLASTIC AND MALLEABLE!

I’ve noticed that from Dexter’s Laboratory!

When Dexter used a bubble gum to become a Rubber-Man/Elastic-Man.
(Dexter’s Laboratory – Dexter was using Bubble gum to become a rubber man)

 

(Gear 4th – Gomu Gomu no Culverin)
And Culverin might have been the 2nd foreshadowing for Luffy’s malleable rubber awakening, because one of Gear 4th’s abilities shows how malleable can Luffy be!
But I think, it’ll be more similar to Majin Buu’s regeneration, when he’s going to split into pieces.

(Majin Buu)
I know it’s not Dragon Ball, but I bet Oda-san will be kind to copy that kind of regeneration.
Abilities:

Malleability:

  • Elasticity/Plasticity: He can stretch his limbs and body to superhuman lengths and sizes. There is no known limit to how far he can stretch his body.
  • Size Alteration: He can shrink himself down to a few inches tall
  • Shape-Shifting: He can contort his body into various positions and sizes impossible for ordinary humans, such as being entirely flat so that he can slip under a door or using his fingers to pick conventional locks. He can also use it for disguise by changing the shape of his face and body. In addition, he can alter his bodily mass and physical constitution at will, there is virtually no limit to the sizes and shapes he can contort himself into. But the only weakness of the shape-shifting is, when he speaks himself and starts using his rubber powers, even if he got the shape of that person he shifted into!

Ex.: he takes the shape of Aokiji. But he needs to keep quiet or else he’d get busted.

  • Superhuman Agility: These stretching powers grant “Plastic-Man” heightened agility enabling him flexibility and coordination that is extraordinarily beyond the natural limits of the human body.
  • Superhuman Strength: He can alter his strength by growing or adding more muscle. Like he did at Gear 4th.
  • Color Change: The only limitation he has relates to color, which he cannot change without intense concentration. He generally does not use this ability and sticks to his red and yellow colored uniform.
  • Invulnerability: Luffy’s awakened powers extraordinarily augment his durability. He is able to withstand corrosives, punctures and concussions without sustaining any injury (although he can be momentarily stunned). He is resistant to high velocity impacts that would kill an ordinary person, resistant to blasts from energy weapons, and is completely bullet proof. His bodily mass can be dispersed, but for all intents and purposes it is invulnerable.
  • Regeneration: He is able to regenerate and/or assimilate lost or damaged tissue, though it does take a long time, its far faster than an ordinary human.
  • Telepathic Immunity: Luffy’s mind is no longer organic. It’s untouchable by telepathy. Mostly Luffy would be immune to mind control!
  • Immortality: Maybe Law’s “death” would be the answer why won’t he get aged any year after his 30s too! Even if he’d be 200 years old or elder.
  • Ultrasonic Detection: Yes, the only hit-back of Luffy’s awakened form.His body will start to “ripple” when an ultrasonic frequency is triggered.This is why won’t be a match against Blackbeard. Because of the powers of the Gura Gura no Mi would just rip him off easily and he needs time to regenerate.
  • Rubber Organs: Luffy’s organs are rubber as he is; he also shifts them around in his body to prevent harm. He doesn’t keep his brain in his head, which has allowed him to survive decapitation.

(One of Luffy’s awakened abilities)
 
So he won’t have any problems with the attacks, as Gomu Gomu no Hammer
or any other attacks. OH! and during the Wano Kingdom Arc he’ll be able to fencing by creating a sword out of his Rubber Body, so this is why Luffy won’t need any weapon, a sword neither, because he can create a weapon out of his own body with this MALLEABLE RUBBER awakening!
FINAL THOUGHTS:

  • Luffy will learn it to use during the Wano arc and he’ll make it perfect in the 2nd timeskip.

(Note: the story is about 65% complete, so there’s still a chance for Second timeskip)

  • Which means he can be able to shape-shifting with his awakening form!
  • It doesn’t even matter he uses Gear 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5TH, but I strongly hope that the awakening will be more destructive if he combines with his Gear forms!
Like he may have done with Gear 4th, what has make him to activate Tankman!
(GEAR 4TH – TANK MAN)
Which means, we’ll get one step closer to Luffy’s awakened form!
What do you guys think?!

The Sad Truth About Gol D. Roger’s VA

Well, if you all are not aware with this…

Then I’m going to tell you that, Gol D. Roger’s VA might going to be Ohtsuka Akio (Voice of Blackbeard) or Naoki Tatsuta (Voice of Capone “Gang” Bege) because unfortunately Gol D. Roger’s regular Voice Actor, Ohtsuka Chikao (Yes, he was Ohtsuka Akio’s father) has died in January 15th, 2015, which will be almost 2 years, he left us all.

So I’ll be curious about who will be the present VA of Roger.

 

What kind of Martial Arts could the Straw Hat Pirates do?

In my opinion, this would be the most possible answer from Oda, if somebody would ask him in an SBS:

 

Luffy – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Because in real life Luffy would be a Brazilian)

Zoro – Aikido Karate (Because Aikido is mostly based on the Samurai Techniques, but only without swords, and Zoro would be a japanese nationality)

Nami – Hokutoryu no Jujutsu (It’s because the Hokutoryu no Jujutsu is mostly used at the North countries, like Sweden. Finland, Norway, ASF. As she would be swedish)

Usopp – Dambe (It’s because Dambe is an ancient African martial art, and Usopp would be an Afro nationality)

Sanji – Tae Kwon Do (It’s because Tae Kwon Do is mostly based on the footwork)

Chopper – Kung Fu (It’s because he uses Kung Fu Point a lot of times)

Robin – Sambo (It’s because of her Russian Nationality and Sambo is created by the Soviet Red Army in the 1920s)

Franky – American Judo (It’s because Franky would be an American and Judo would fit into him in the best way)

Brook – Wing Chun Kung-Fu (It’s because of his clothing style)

THE VOID CENTURY – EXPLANATION

In the real meantime,

Pope II. Urban declared a holy war against the holy land, Jerusalem in August 15th, 1096, which it was the first holy war to free the holy land!

And this crusader wars were been raging over 2 centuries.
In other words from the 11th to the 13th century!

Where a lot of kings like –

  • King Richard Lionheart, English king,
  • King Andrew II. Hungarian king,
  • King Louis VII, French King,
  • Emperor Redbeard Frederick I of the German-Roman Empire
  • Prince Henny II of Austria,
  • Prince Jason of Hungary,
  • Emperor Henry VI of the German-Roman Empire,
  • King Louis IX, French King,
  • and many other kings were joined.

And this 200-year-war was a real bloodbath, where children were been taking part!

Sorry, I’m trying to tell you more concisely, because it’s too long to tell the whole history about the crusader wars.

Which means, in One Piece, the 20 kings were joined during that war where a greater or lesser movements joined in the first place, when the ancient kindgom declared a war against the Holyland, which is named as Mariejois.

When they captured the Holyland, those 20 kings were met and founded the World Government. But one of them were refused to be being a part of the holyland.

After the war, in 1206 (I mean the Crusader war in the real meantime)
13 nobles were separated from the crusaders and they had been keeping a secret meeting in every year, in a run-down pub in the heart of Venice. 4 or 9 of them were backed down when they heard the horrors of their “comrades”. But they couldn’t have left without punishment to take out the trash.

And they were known as the Venetian Black Nobility, where their main place is in Switzerland in our present days.

Maybe Switzerland is conspires in One Piece, because the Celestial Dragons were inspired by the Black Nobility. Switzerland is untouchable, nobody can touch a Black Noble.

The celestial dragons are controlling the values, the food, which country can rise up or fall down, where they created the system (Shichibukai, Yonkou) to assign a sucker to rule over an assigned country. What can get an uprising or downfall by EACH assigned person.

See: Alabasta, Dressrosa, Wano Kingdom.

By creating a NEW WORLD ORDER.

This is why Monkey D. Dragon had enough of the constant lies and created the Revolutionary Army.

And since I always notice that, the history repeats itself in One Piece, maybe in the final war will be as the same as it started. But here, the Revo Army will start a greater or lesser attacks against the Marines and local movements.

Did Doflamingo make Viola into HIS woman?!

Q: Why do Doflamingo and Violet call each other “Doffy” and “Viola”?

Oda: Actually there is a profound setting about it, but I’m afraid I can’t tell you. I told my editor about it, though. Considering ONE PIECE is Shounen manga, I’d like to hide it since the reason is for adult audience. Dressrosa is a nation of passion, indeed!!

NOTE: I guess that, this is why she did, it’s because of making Doflamingo himself to spare her father’s life, the former  king’s life, King Riku Doldo III (Who’s been the regular king again of Dressrosa).

 

Hands up, if somebody will do the same in the end of One Piece!

I know there are a lot of people, when they will do it like Rayleigh, when One Piece ends!

As us too, when we’ll see that glorious moment about Luffy & the crew.

But some other interesting things about One Piece!

 

I mean, the ending.

The series will end in 2027, it’s because of the 30th anniversary of One Piece, and Oda Eiichirou’s Health issues.

Not unconditionally does that in 3D2Y style – 4 weeks 3 Chapters, you know.

 

 

Chowder is using Gear 3rd!

Yeah, our favorite “Tanuki-like” creature couldn’t stay out of this party! Because he might have been the first Gomu Gomu no Mi user!

 

A.K.A.  Chowder.

 

But unfortunately he isn’t! He can only thank this limb size alteration by a Cream Puff Machine, where he couldn’t resist to help people with it!

Could Other DF Users Do “GEARS”?!

The answer is…

 

YES, IT’S POSSIBLE.

Because if you don’t know that, the Gears/Gear forms were based on the human body, where it has 5 main systems. And those means the Gears/Gear forms.

  • Cardiovascular System (Vessels)

  • Musculoskeletal System (Bones)

  • Muscular System (Muscles)

  • Neural System (Nerves)

  • Sensory System (Sights, Listening, Smelling, Touching & Tasting)

Again, those DF users, ONLY those DF users, where all 5 body systems are conspiring of the use, they can do use Gear forms!

EX.

MONKEY D. LUFFY –

We don’t need to show it, because he’s using his Gear forms frequently.

EDWARD “WHITEBEARD” NEWGATE/MARSHALL D. TEACH “BLACKBEARD” –

He/They can also go Gear 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th, because he/they can make their body tremble. And this is why the marines meant, Whitebeard can even destroy the whole world!!

BOA HANCOCK –

Actually, she could do Gear 2nd, because in her DF the emotions are conspiring at her DF powers!
Where touches the Vessel, the Nerves and the Muscles system the most!!

All of Luffy’s Gear forms

Yes, these are all Gear forms of Monkey D. Luffy. You aren’t mistaken! These are the all forms and the big one might be Gear 5th, and this is how it will look like.

It’s only a fanart equally, but I’ll be as hyped as you about Gear 5th and if it will look like that big guy in the back, then it’ll pass any of out requirements. It could be, this Gear 5th is only the pre-form of Luffy. Because the complete form might going to be acquired only in the 2nd timeskip!

Sanji & Nami’s “Wedding” – Will they get married?! – Ch.848+ [Spoilers]

Monkey D. Bufford send us this theory. Enjoy it!

 

 

 

Yeah, Yeah… I know! Oda barely shows romance in the story. But there used to be some unexpected moments like this one what I’ll tell you in this theory!!

And most unexpected thing is there is romance in the crew too!

with 2 exceptions, who are Sanji & Nami and Zoro & Robin!

Why? Because Oda said, “they are in love with adventure“, what that doesn’t mean there is no romance. If Oda would have said “they are ONLY in love with adventure“, then we could say it there is no romance between the crew members! Ergo, there is a huge difference between the 2 sentences. Watch out for this, guys!

But let’s get to the topic. Why will Sanji & Nami GET MARRIED, so to speak?!

Sounds strange to you, right? But I think you won’t be able to imagine it, Oda has given a LOOOT of hints to us about it!

But first here’s some reasons, why Sanji & Nami are going to get married!!

 

 

1.) “THE BEGINNING”

(Sanji & Nami’s first meeting)

Sanji was the first one who’ve been hugged by Nami at the Baratie Restaurant! It seems Nami-swan is a kinda “FREE HUGS” type (LOL)

 

 

 

2. CLOCKWORK ISLAND

 

(Clockwork Island – Sanji & Nami are in a wedding outfit)

 

 

I’m fully aware with that movies aren’t canon, even some of them are co-produced by Oda. but there are some movies which might get your interests about it!

One of my favorite movie is Clockwork Island, where Sanji and Nami were L-I-T-E-R-A-L-L-Y  in a wedding outfit! I know, they forced to wear these outfits because Merry was stolen By the Bear King Pirates.

But from this movie it seems Sanji really cares for Nami and Nami saw him in action, when Sanji was trying to protect Nami from Boo Jack.

So in other words some movies inspired Oda to foreshadow Sanji & Nami’s wedding.Where clockwork island was the foreshadowing of “Nami’s wedding in THRILLER BARK” But I’ll mention it a bit later!

3. ENIES LOBBY

Remember when this made Nami having an admiration about Sanji?

So when Sanji said that to Nami, He refused to kick a woman, he thought it seriously. Nami caused him for losing against a woman, however she said that she admires his chivalry.

(Ch.403 – Nami admires Sanji’s chivalry)

 

 

3.5) HOLIDAYS SPECIAL

 

Well, it’s pretty non-canon, but I’d like to note this one, where Nami & Sanji were playing the role of the Husband & Wife!

(One Piece Holidays Special: The Feudal Grand Line – Sanji & Nami were playing the role of the Husband & Wife)

 

 

4. THRILLER BARK


As I said, this is one of the biggest Sanji & Nami moment as I told you a bit recently from Clockwork Island. Nami & Sanji were in a wedding outfit, which has inspired Oda to make that scene in Thriller Bark!
Not to mention about Sanji was raged over Nami’s marriage and he was saved her from that marriage with Absalom, the invisible man.

 

IN ADDITION! NAMI WAS SMILING UNCONSCIOUSLY , WHILE SHE WAS HELD BY SANJI!!

(Sanji is holding Nami – Trying to protect her from Absalom, the invisible man)
5.SABAODY ARCHIPELAGO

 

(Ch.513 – Nami was shocked when she lost Sanji & the others)


Yep, just look at Nami’s reaction when Sanji was sent to fly by Bartholomew Kuma, but I think, she was seemed more worried about her friends.

 

6. STRONG WORLD

 

Yes! You will never figure out that why did I choose this one as a really strong hint to Sanji & Nami!
 

I know it’s not canon but… By knowing Sanji, we know that how far could he go for Nami!

 


1st of all, Nami sent that message to Luffy, BUT!! You will never find the main joke in the end of Strong World!

 

BUT DON’T WORRY, I TELL YOU.

 

 

Obviously, Sanji said – Although, this message sounds like some kind of love letter for me.”

 

Which means he meant that love letter all for himself.

What inspired Oda from Ch.361.

 

 

(Ch.361 – “Sounds like some kind of love letter to me”)

 

 

7.PUNK HAZARD

 

This is an unnecessary thing to say so to speak, but I admit that Sanji & Nami were switched bodies.

 


(Sanji in Nami’s body)

8.DRESSROSA

 

(Viola Dold, the dancer)
Well, well, well. Why gets Viola in the picture?

The answer is simple. Sanji wanted a dancer girl and Oda made his wishes come true in his laps.

 

(Sanji & Viola)

 

Maybe Violet was the reason why Sanji has become more manlier than he ever was by her love and he could have move on! That really seemed on the fight against Doflamingo, when Nami & the others were in danger.

 

(Sanji intercepts Doflamingo during attacking the other Straw Hat members)

 

9.ZOU

Hold on tight guys, because THIS! arc was the confirmation of the Sanji-Nami thing.

Actually, when Nami hugged Luffy and cried for Sanji! Seriously!

And when Sanji was taken by Capone Bege, Nami was clearly shocked

(Ch.813 – Nami literally cries for Sanji)

 

And after Sanji left, Nami felt herself responsible for the happenings.

(Nami stops Luffy and asks him to get Sanji back as soon as possible)

 

And during the way to Cake Island Nami was a bit like Sanji when she’s blushed, after Luffy used all the ingredients. That reminded to Sanji when there wasn’t any food.


(Nami & the others are crying for Sanji)

 

And when they met Charlotte Pudding, then she announced that she’s going to marry with Sanji, Nami had a shocking reaction!

(Nami’s reaction to Pudding’s wedding announcement)

 

Not to mention about Sanji has clearly stated that he doesn’t want to marry with Pudding!

In addition Nami slapped Sanji on the face! Where in 80% means the girl has some kind of romantic feelings towards the guy she hated so to speak!

(Nami slaps Sanji on the face)

Some other more interesting things!
  • Sanji is originally a French and Nami is originally a Swedish.
  • Sanji was born in North Blue where Sweden is up right on the North.

Both of their Numbers are matching –

Nami – 03; 73

Sanji – 05; 32; (San-ji) 59 (Ko-kku); 07

ONE PIECE FILM GOLD


(One Piece Film: GOLD)

 

 

 

Sanji & Nami are look like a married couple in a summer style wedding outfit.

Also!

There was a Fanta commercial about One Piece where Sanji & Nami were also looking like a fresh married couple! I know it’s just a commercial and nothing extra, but what if Fanta confirms the result of Sanji’s wedding?! Will he get married with Nami?!

(Fanta commercial 2016)

BUT!!

Equally I’m not sure in that, they would get married… Because…

Sanji is not that type to be with only one woman! Maybe Nami will make him recovered to his senses or something similar to this but, the only thing I hope, is a comedic relief/running gag apart from the Sanji-Nami couple.
Conclusion:
  • Oda might have inspired Sanji & Nami’s “wedding” from Clockwork Island. Where Sanji & Nami were in a wedding outfit.
  • What has make him driven into that wedding scene at Thriller Bark, where Sanji was fighting for her favors.
  • Holidays special is non-canon, but also the part of the Anime series, where Sanji & Nami were played the role of Husband & Wife.
  • Strong World movie was the another reason for the Sanji-Nami couple because Nami clearly send that message to Luffy, however Sanji has meant as a love-letter… FOR HIMSELF. by knowing him.
  • When Sanji left she was literally broken down back in Zou and then she hugged Luffy for asking her to save Sanji.
  • In addition she was holding Luffy down to go after Sanji because Nami felt herself responsible after the happenings. On the other hands she was protecting Sanji from Zoro’s & Luffy’s opinion.
  • When Pudding announced that she’s going to get married with Sanji, Nami was literally broken down!
  • And also Nami slapped Sanji in the face

SOO…

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?!
