Gear 4 & 5!
So after the TS, Luffy no longer turns into a Chibi after using his Gear 3rd. It seems he has completely mastered it.
He has also began to use his gear 2nd with his arm and less with his legs.
He has started using both gears more than he normally did and has used basic armanent haki along with it and nothing special than just that. He even uses his gear 2nd when it's not even necessary. When he uses it he doesn't use his full strength, just to knock enemies back or for the speed. He uses it as if it's just his basic strength.
This makes me think that he has something even stronger, an even powerful gear that has his full power.
He trained for 2 years. He has been holding back a lot during the TS. We were lucky to even see him use Red Hawk, I'm quite sure he has a whole lot more techniques. He even used "Snake Shot" which was an electricity technique, which he used against, Hody Jones. He said it wasn't as powerful in the water. Thanks to, Hody's oddly tough body we saw those sweet techniques. His defense was probably his specialty even without the energy steroid.
But my point is, he has another gear which I'm sure of. I guess we can call it Gear 4th?
What do you guys think it will be like?
I can think of these...
-Blows air into all his bones becoming a giant
-Blows air into his muscles and increases his strength even more
-Being able to use Gear 2nd/3rd at the same time without body paralysis

They are classified like this, from the weakest to the strongest:
So now you can see the difference.
- Gomu Gomu no Jet Pistol
- Armament Hardening Gomu Gomu no Pistol/Bullet
- Red Hawk
What are your thoughts about Gear 4?
Hopefully his gear 4th isn't some "Turn Into A Giant" crap...
When did Law try to run away? Law is a strategist. If such a situation came to be, it simply be to avoid unnecessary fights that would only lead to an undesiredly disadvantageous outcome to his plans. That's smart thinking, not fear. And don't forget that he was very prepared for a fight against Donflamingo. He preserved his strength for a possible situation.
Wow, death? Defeating him through a combat would be the best method. Why do you find killing him to be the best method? Don"'t forget that Luffy has never killed someone in the past.Quote:
And if you want to see why, Law would run away read the last page of chapter, 711 and then read 712. He obviously can't get away now even if he tried.

I already have an idea that what gear 4 or gear 5 could be. Imagine if Luffy combined Red Hawk with Gear 3. If he did Gomu Gomu no Axe with Gear 2 Armament haki on the way down and then went Gear 3 to make a killer explosion. Or think about Gomu Gomu Bazooka Gear 3 Read hawk. For the sake it'd be sooooo cool he'll call it a new Gear.
Probably thought about making this thread 100 times, but i couldn't of thought of gear 2nd or gear 3rd, even though i feel like his gomu gomu powers could be reaching a limit sometimes, im sure oda has thought of all sorts of things.
im sure gear 4 will occur. i had wondered about the giant luffy thing a lot of times.
Gear 2nd = goku's kaioken.
Maybe we'll get to see luffys version is super saiyan soon haha.
I've been thinking lately that Luffy is keeping his power-ups car related. So since he has gears, do u guys think he will ever have a Nitro power soon. Like he would pump both arms and legs at the same time and it would be like a NOS power, quick and extremely strong. Armament Haki then pump everything into a single attack should be able to take out a worn down Yonkou. Just a thought.
^Wouldn't what you describe be gear 2? It basically does what you say, using a more extreme version would not warrant calling it a new gear.
Dunno about a gear 4 however I do expect luffy to be able to take his gear 3 to a level further than what we have seen. Luffy has already shown ease when using it so he should be able to do more than what he has shown so far. The idea of gear 3 is to get the power of a giant behind his punches so I think that the next step would be to do more than just a limb or two but rather make himself into a giant and one with armored haki at that. It would be like a second level of gear 3 rather than a new gear.
I really can't imagine what could be a new gear for him. Most ideas so far usually revolve around making something which falls into the category of either of his gears into a new gear which I don't think oda will do. Odds are that if luffy ever gets a new gear it would be something intrinsically different from either gear. I liked the idea of vulcanization however it does seem like what we have seen is simply an advanced use of armament haki which is available to everyone. Perhaps it would be an option in the future though and it would be specially effective in conjunction with the advanced armament haki.
