The Previous Owner Of Gomu Gomu no Mi – Explained


Devil Fruits are mystical fruits that exist in the world of One Piece. They are said to exist mainly in the Grand Line, and whoever eats them gets powers that are supernatural. These Devil Fruits are very rare, and not everyone is lucky enough to come across one of these things. The concept of Devil Fruits is what One Piece was based on earlier.

One of the most peculiar Devil Fruits that we’ve ever seen in the series in the Gomu Gomu no Mi itself. The Gomu Gomu no Mi is the very first Devil Fruit that was introduced to us in One Piece. It was during Luffy’s childhood, during the Romance Dawn Arc that we were able to see the very first Devil Fruit, and that was indeed the Gomu Gomu no Mi. Shanks had brought this Devil Fruit, and kept it safe for some reason.

Unbeknownst to him, Luffy had mistaken this fruit for supper, and eaten it without asking anyone, and because of that, he was granted the superior powers of the Gomu Gomu no Mi. His body had turned into rubber, and while that doesn’t sound like a great ability, it really is awesome of your creative like Luffy. One of the biggest questions regarding this Devil is who its previous owner was.

Whenever this question is asked, the answer that most people come up with is Gol D. Roger. However, that’s not what I think. I don’t believe Roger had the Gomu Gomu no Mi. Instead, it was someone closely related to him, and that person is Portgas D. Rouge. Rouge was the lover of Gol D. Roger, and the mother of Portgas D. Ace.


A surprising thing about her was that she was able to hold Ace in her womb for 20 months! This is a staggering amount of time. She was pregnant with Ace about 5 months before Roger was executed, and she managed to hold him in her womb for 15 more months after Roger died. How was this possible?

According to this fantheory, all this was possible because of her Haki (will power), and that durability against pain and damage provided by the Gomu Gomu no Mi. It would also explain why Shanks was looking for this Devil Fruit, as he must know about Rouge was someone really important to Roger, and Shanks probably wanted to keep this Devil Fruit safe from evil hands. Rouge ultimately died after giving birth to Ace, which would mean that the damage she had suffered from holding Ace for so long was immense, despite having the Gomu Gomu no Mi. While this is just a theory, it is very interesting when you think about it, and I certainly do like it. But of course, a lot of you won’t like it, probably. Let me know what you guys think!


7 One Piece Characters Who Might Have Advanced Observation Haki

Advanced Observation Haki is an ability that very few characters can utilize in One Piece. It debuted in the Whole Cake Island arc. This ability allows one to look into the future, and predict all the moves of the opponent. Today, I’ve made a list of 7 characters who I think can use this power. Let’s begin –

7. Rayleigh

Rayleigh is one of the people who I’m pretty sure has it. He has taught Luffy about Haki and its advanced forms once. That’s not all. At Sabaody Archipelago, Rayleigh was apparently able to look into the past via his Haki as well, which is a form of Advanced Observation Haki as well. I’m sure he has this ability.

6. Luffy

If you’re up to date with the One Piece manga, then you should know that Luffy has also gained the ability to look into the future, albeit inconsistently. He is getting better, and better though. This ability gives Luffy a great powerup, and he is now easily a Yonko Commander level Pirate. Luffy is getting stronger, and this Haki will surely come in handy when facing stronger opponents.

5. Katakuri

Charlotte Katakuri is the one who debuted with this Haki type in One Piece. He has trained his Observation Haki to the point where he can look several seconds into the future. Katakuri can do it way better than Luffy can. He can also do it for a lot longer, due to bigger Haki pool.

4. Akainu

Akainu is the Fleet Admiral of the Marines. I really think he has this type of Haki, because at Marineford, he showed something very similar. When he was attacked with Haki by Marco, and Vista, he wasn’t hurt at all. This was despite his body being cut, which is pretty similar to how Katakuri does it. That was a strong indication that Akainu might be a user of the Future sight Haki.

3. Aokiji

Aokiji was once an Admiral of the Marines. He is now a member of the Blackbeard Pirates. Similar to Akainu, Aokiji was able to use Observation Haki to defend against Whitebeard’s stab. He opened a whole in his chest before the attack could hit him. This could be regular Observation Haki as well. However, it would be very hard to actually pull that off with just Observation Haki.
