Otaku Theory Time: Will Luffy Die in the Future of One Piece?

Will Luffy Die?

Hey guys, Flint here. If you watch One Piece, then you know that the main character Monkey D. Luffy is “a little reckless”. But could you imagine him eventually dying? I know it seems highly unlikely to happen but I’ve done my research and I actually found some interesting facts that could lead to Luffy’s death.

Theory 1: Gear Two

If some of you don’t know, every time Luffy uses Gear Two he shortens his lifespan slightly. If you don’t know what Gear Two is, it’s basically an upgrade Luffy discovered from his Gomu Gomu no Mi Devil Fruit, which gives him to ability to move at extreme speed. Now think about this. Oda, the creator of One Piece has conformed that the series will continue on for another ten years! Now within those ten more years, Luffy will constantly be using Gear Two to fight enemies. Plus, Oda may add another time-skip which could increase that amount of times Luffy is using it. Couldn’t this severely damage his health a.k.a causing him to die? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

 

Theory 2: Ivankov’s Emporio Chiyu Hormone ability

Ivankov is a high ranking member in the Revolutionary Army and is quite a strange character indeed. He ate the Horu Horu no Mi Devil Fruit which gives him powers to control hormones in his and other people’s bodies. Now one of his abilities is to heal people who are in critical condition.

When Luffy was extremely hurt from his escape from Imperial Down, Ivankov injected Luffy with his Emporio Chiyu Hormon ability (literally meaning “Emporio Healing Hormone). He made a full recovery although this cause ten years from his life to be taken away! (Hint Hint, One Piece is ending in 10 years!)

Not to mention, Ivankov injected Luffy twice with this ability, the second time at Marineford. This has shortened Luffy’s lifespan greatly, which may lead to his death in the future.

Anyways that’s all for today. I honesty don’t want to see Luffy die as he is probably my favourite anime character.

But if Oda makes the decision to kill him at the end, I will not complain. The One Piece story is incredible and as long as I can see each crew member of the Straw Hats achieving there dreams, I will be happy with the ending.

Thank you for reading and I’ll see you guys next time!
