    Luffy's Chest Scar

    In the latest volume of ONE PIECE, Oda revealed that the scar on Luffy's chest, is due to the attack he received from Akainu, while being protected by Jinbei.

    I must say I was a bit disappointed when I knew this.

    When I first saw the scar, I always thought it was something made during his training. He had to go through some fierce training to attain a new skill or something. And that at some point in time, there will be a flashback to tell us what happened. But seemed like it's not going to happen now.

    I just don't want it to end up like Naruto. Naruto didn't learn many new things after his 2 years of training.

    Anyway, well, it also tells us something. Luffy is definitely going to face Akainu some day. Oda must have a reason for leaving the scar on Luffy's chest. The scar also reminds Luffy what happened in Marine Ford, and the fact that Akainu was the one who killed Ace. It also serves as a reminder to Luffy that he must be strong in order to protect his nakama.

    I'm quite anxious to see how Luffy will take his revenge or how he will react when he sees Akainu again~

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    Oda revealed this? Wasn't it painfully obvious from the start that such a scar could only be caused by akainu's fist? I think most people would have associated the lava fist trashing luffy's chest with the huge scar in the exact same location for the most part hence an overall lack of disappointment in the area lol.

    I agree in that luffy is going to fight akainu at some point but in turn it can be anytime even remotely soon. I doubt luffy can win against an admiral yet even if he could indeed fight back at least.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    Well in the manga it wasn't very clearly drawn but in the anime it's pretty clear. I just didn't think that the reason for the scar was so "simple". I was looking forward to some other explanation so there was a bit of disappointment on my part. I guess I'll just look forward to Zoro's scar's explanation, if there's any =p

    Yup he won't meet anytime soon. Since the meaning of the scar is so big I think it will probably be near the end of ONE PIECE. Or at least a few islands later~

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    But that scar is awesome! It's for Luffy to remember Aikanu.

    And I'm quite sure Luffy had some injuries that time healed. Don't worry, you can see He improved a lot after the timeskip. It wont end like Naruto xD

    I didn't really think this should have been a revelation to anyone.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    I like the fact that akainu gave luffy a permanent souvenir to remember him by until they meet again, but im only disappointed that since the start of this post-skip luffy's scar has been shrinking more and more. Before it really looked like an explosion of magma pierced through him, now it just looks like an 'X" :/

    On topic though, yea, to me the scar coming from akainu was obvious.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    From the elephant haki imbued punch he used, I doubt it'll turn out like naruto.
    Luffy is a whole lot stronger now, when usually it'll take him a few minutes to take out a pacifista..now it only took him a second.
    Actually, I'm still surprised at his rate of growth

    The scar is a reminder to a lesson learnt for luffy and it signifies the war he went through because the war is such an important point in the story, Oda made it so that luffy can remember it with that scar and of course, that scar is for him to remember what Akainu did and to carry it when he faces him in the future.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    I was wondering where that scar came from as well, but hadn't put it together that Akainu's attacks were the cause. Thanks for bringing this up.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    I just found it a little strange that a punch made an X shaped scar in Luffy. That's why this is surprising to me, but I suppose it makes enough sense.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    Maybe it's just because an X-shape looks nicer, rather than some other random shape~

    X marks the spot of the treasure afterall and in the pirates world,
    X signifies alot.
    But I guess you guys already know that.

    The X shape is how Trafalgar chose to do the stiches.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    That was really the only way to do the stitches for a wound such as that one. Personally, I prefer the fact that he has gotten the scar from a formidable opponent, rather than during some off-panel training. What, Rayleigh decided to slash his chest out in order to teach him some skill? Bollocks!
    The scar has a story now. It's not some gay scar received in the middle of nowhere where nobody even saw it being made.
    This way, when Luffy gets into a town in New World, pirates will be commenting things like - "Look at the scar Akainu gave him, and he still survived!" or "That's Strawhat Luffy, the one that broke out of Impel Down and knocked Garp out in Marineford. Look at the scar, can't believe he actually survived Akainu's fist. He must be really tough!"

    Also, don't get how people didn't connect the scar with the hot, flesh rending lava fist right away.
