Gol D. Roger was widely known as the King of the Pirates. He’s the only one who has ever conquered the Grand Line and the New World, making him the Pirate King. Roger was an extremely powerful pirate, and he fought Whitebeard toe to toe. However, one big thing that has always been confusing is his powers. We know Roger was possibly the strongest Pirate ever, and but what was it that made him the strongest?
Being the King of the Pirates, we know Roger must’ve possessed tremendous Haki. His will power alone saw him become the Pirate King. It was evident when he fought The Golden Lion Shiki’s fleet all alone with just one ship.
Judging from that, he was the greatest pirate to ever live. But, one of the biggest things that have been asked is whether Gol D Roger had a Devil Fruit or not. Most people speculate that he didn’t have one. However, I think otherwise.
I believe Roger did infact have the Gomu Gomu no Mi before Monkey D Luffy and I have several reasons for believing that. First, Shanks brought it on his ship, knowing that it was very important to him.
Why did he bring this Devil Fruit that he barely knew on his ship? Further, he already knew it was the Gomu Gomu no Mi. Most people don’t know which Devil Fruit it is when they see one.
However, it was different with Shanks. He knew it was the Gomu Gomu no Mi, and he knew what it did. It was similar to how Teach was searching for the Yami Yami no Mi.
Shanks was searching for the Gomu Gomu no Mi, because he knew his captain held this Legendary power. What he wanted to do with it is unknown. There’s another reason I believe why Roger had the Gomu Gomu no Mi.
We all know Rayleigh taught Luffy during the 2 year timeskip. He taught Luffy many techniques, which included the Gear 4th as well.
As long as Rayleigh didn’t see someone use this power, I highly doubt that he was able to teach Luffy something as complex as that. Rayleigh was the Vice Captain of the Roger Pirates, so I believe that he saw its usage when he was with Roger.
Further, I believe Luffy will also meet Scopper Gaban sometime in the future. He will be the one to train Luffy in the ways of Devil Fruit awakening. Just like the Strawhat, I think the Gomu Gomu no Mi is the legacy of Gol D Roger, and Luffy will conquer its power.
Luffy’s Gear 5th And It’s Deadly Powers – Explained
Monkey D. Luffy is the Captain of the Strawhat Pirates, and he’s one of the strongest Pirates in the New World right now. Like many other Pirates, Luffy is a Devil Fruit user as well, and I’m sure all the fans know that. His Devil Fruit is a Paramecia type called the Gomu Gomu no Mi, which has turned his entire body into rubber. Luffy has thus gained the powers of stretchiness. Just when you think how stretching can even be used in battle, Luffy finds way to shut people up.
Again and again, we’ve seen him do stuff only he could think of with the Gomu Gomu no Mi. One of the most important things that Luffy has developed so far are the Gears.
in order to improve his fighting ability Luffy used various Gears. The first gear he ever used was the “Gear Second” which was pulled off at Enies Lobby. In this form, Luffy gains thr ability to pump blood several times faster in his body, which lets him achieve high speed movements.
Monkey D. Luffy also unleashed the 3rd Gear in the same arc. Instead of pumping blood faster, this time, Luffy blows air into his bones, which then inflate and grant him several times the powers Basically, it gives him the body of a giant.
Gear 3rd and Gear 2nd were both great. However, there were several things lacking. Gear 2nd didn’t have the raw power, while Gear 3rd lacked the agility.
So, during the 2 year Timeskip, Luffy developed something else. He created Gear 4th. This was called “muscle balloon”. Instead of Putting air into his bones like Gear 3rd, Luffy inflated his muscles, which made him buffed.
But, to prevent the air from escaping, and to increase the power, he used Haki to create elastic force. But, we know, in order to take down stronger opponents, Luffy needs to create another Gear. The power of Gear 4th just isn’t enough. He needs Gear 5th.
Monkey D. Luffy will need a Gear 5th sooner or later. But exactly will Gear 5th be? I think Gear 5th is going to be the Gear of awakening. Luffy will be able to use his Devil Fruit awakening in this Gear.
