Gear 5 awakening granted Luffy some new abilities that left One Piece fans in awe. And we are going to comment on each one of them here, do you remember them all?

First of all, let’s remember how Luffy activated the Gear 5 transformation.

How does Luffy activate Gear 5?

It all started in chapter 1042 of the One Piece manga, when luffy distracted, he almost hit by an fatal blow. He is unconscious and Kaidou tells everyone he is dead.

As early as chapter 1043 of the One Piece manga, Luffy’s body melts (along with his Straw Hat) as he laughs silently. At that moment, Zunesha declares that she heard “The Drums of Liberation. There is no doubt, He is here!” When momo asked who is there… Zunesha replies, “Joyboy…. he returned!“.

Apparently, Luffy is alive and possessed by Joy Boy‘s spirit. Also, you can see his silhouette with a Full Moon in the background. Moments earlier, fans believed that Luffy was blond, like God Nika, as in chapter 1044 of the manga, it is said that “Luffy’s silhouette is identical to God Nika, black, with a full moon in the background and he is smiling.”

Soon after, Gorusei says that he is: “The Liberation Warrior and his body is made of rubber and he can fight as he wants, making everyone smile wherever he goes”. This is also considered the most ridiculous power in the world, that is, the power gains a Toon Force style.

One of the first abilities Gear 5 gave Luffy was called “the most ridiculous power in the world”. This power allowed Luffy to keep smiling even though he exchanged punches with Kaido.

In addition, it also granted Luffy comedic features, such as his eyes bulging out of his face (as pictured above). Toon Force brings comic relief to the electrifying battle scene.

Turn everything around you into rubber, including lightning

The Gear 5 transformation also granted Luffy the power to turn everything around him to rubber, this included lightning.

In chapter 1045, when Kaidou swallows him in a desperate attempt to stop him, he realizes this was a bad idea. Kaido realizes that the fruit that Luffy ate is unusual, the Hito Hito no Mi: Nika it turns the environment into rubber (like a Paramecia) and also turns the user into rubber (like a Zoan).

Now, in chapter 1047 of the One Piece manga, Luffy has managed to turn lightning bolts into rubber and lean on them while taking a breath for another blow.

After being swallowed by Kaido and getting away with it, Luffy uses a new attack known as the “Gomu Gomu no Gigant” transforming his entire body. In his new form, he gets so big he looks like a god.

On another page of chapter 1045, we see a new move by Luffy called “Gomu gomu no jump rope”, which is about jumping rope with a dragon.

It’s no wonder Gear 5 is known as the most ridiculous power of all.

With so much weirdness going on, it’s hard to pay attention to everything, but it’s at this moment that Yamato reveals that Luffy isn’t actually blonde, but with white hair and robes.

Become the God of Thunder with Gomu Gomu no Thunder

Although chapter 1046 didn’t explore the Luffy vs. Kaido, we caught a glimpse of a previously unseen pirate skill.

He utilized a new move called Gomu Gomu no Thunder that equated him with a God of Thunder and allowed him to hold lightning with his hands.

Giant Punch (bigger than Onigashima!)

It seems that the leader of Straw Hats is tired of this battle (which already yields some good chapters) and is ready to end it all with his giant punch.

The most impressive thing about this blow is that his hand has become bigger than Onigashima, that is, it is possible that he will destroy the city together, in his eagerness to destroy Kaido.

These are some of the amazing abilities Luffy has gained since he Awakened Gear 5. What did you think of each of them?
