Rayleigh is one of the most notorious, strongest, and knowledgeable characters in all of One Piece. Even without possessing a devil fruit, Rayleigh is able to fight against Devil Fruit users equally in strength with his mastery over the three types of Haki (Armament, Observational, and Conqueror’s). And being apart of Roger’s Pirates, he is undoubtedly one of the most notable pirates in all of One Piece. With that said, today we are going to be discussing 10 facts about Rayleigh you didn’t know!
1- Rayleigh was inspired and named after a real life pirate named Sir Walter Raleigh. Sir Walter Raleigh was a 16th Century privateer and explorer. It should also be noted that the last name Raleigh was spelled over 40 different ways. One of those was spelled “Rayleigh.”
2 – Rayleigh still has a physical active bounty for his arrest by the World Government. The amount of his actual bounty however is unknown. This was confirmed when Rayleigh fought Kizaru and offered for him to get rid of his wanted poster and then he would go into retirement.
3 – Silvers Rayleigh’s name wasn’t just inspired by the pirate Sir Walter Raleigh. Rayleigh’s name was also inspired by Rayleigh Scattering. Rayleigh Scattering is the scattering of light and this was teased when Rayleigh was fighting Kizaru where he literally scattered his light attacks.
4 – Silvers Rayleigh was a former member of Roger’s Pirates. With Gold D. Roger being the captain, he is first, and with Silvers Rayleigh, he was second in line. This relationship is similar to Gold being more valuable than Silver, and is a play on their first names.
5 – Roger’s Pirate crew were noted to be the top strongest pirates in the world and the highest in reputation. Alongside that is the theme of rare metals with the members names. First there is Gold D. Roger, Silvers Rayleigh, and then there is another member named Scopper Gaban (who has Copper in their name).
6 – Rayleigh was ranked 32 in the fifth fan poll.
7 – He is the first former member of Roger’s Pirates to still have an active Bounty.
8 – Coby and Rayleigh share the same birthday.
Rayleigh loves woman and alcohol. This is a statement made by Shakky, and was proven when he saved Keimi from being mistreated from disco. While doing this he was holding a flask that contained alcohol.
10 – When it was revealed that Red Hair Shanks and Buggy were apart of Roger’s pirates, a fan asked Oda about the subordinate captain under Roger who scolded both Shanks and Buggy. Oda didn’t want to reveal that it was Silvers Rayleigh yet, so instead he told Toei Animation to not call Silvers Rayleigh captain.
One Piece Manga Finally Reveals How Luffy Will Defeat Katakuri
Hey everyone! Today, I’m going to talk about the One Piece manga chapter 888, and Luffy’s confrontation against Charlotte Katakuri. But, before that, I want to let you all know that this post will contain heavy spoilers from both chapter 888 (obviously), and chapter 889 (potential spoilers). So, please, continue only if you want to read the spoilers.
The latest One Piece chapter saw Monkey D. Luffy go back to the Mirror world, and there, he saw Charlotte Katakuri waiting for him to return. Katakuri told him that he was way stronger than him, and even Luffy knows that there is a difference between their power levels. However, he still is dead set on beating Katakuri. At this point, even Luffy doesn’t know how though. Luffy has been fighting Katakuri for a long time now.
It has been over 3 hours, and maybe even 4-5 hours since the two have been battling it out. For the most part, it is Luffy who has been on the losing end, and even Gear 4th isn’t helping him pull off a victory here. But, there is a way Luffy can defeat Charlotte Katakuri, and the latest One Piece manga chapter has all but confirmed it. I’ve talked about it before as well, and I’m saying it again.
Charlotte Katakuri is weakening, slowly. When he fought Luffy at first, he was able to dodge every single attack of his with his Observation Haki. He could create holes in his body, and then proceed to beat Luffy. But during their second encounter, something is different. Katakuri is not using his Observation Haki to dodge. He is manually dodging Luffy’s attacks.
So, yeah. Charlotte Katakuri is definitely weakening. I suspect that we already know the cause behind this
