    Seriously, the moment I saw the scar I remembered this shitty filler. Who would have thought that the filler will have a spot-on prediction ><

    Yeah I agree many people would want the scar to be made in a scene where everybody saw rather then some random scene where nobody knows. I remember Akainu's fierce attack. I just didn't expect it would leave a scar on his body.

    Maybe for people like me who wants more stories told would hope that the scar has another story behind it, but I guess Akainu being the reason is more than good enough. I hope Luffy will explain about his scar and his resolutions one day. I wonder why nobody ask him about it.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    Well I'm not going to dis. I was also wondering where that scar came from. I thought he got it from Rayleigh during training. This revelation is a bit disappointing.

    I'm going to remember this Akainu.

    Finally a person who shares the same sentiments as me!!

    Yeah I think Oda shouldn't have revealed it so early to keep people like us in suspense. At least he should have revealed it in the story instead of in the SBS~

    Well, you know haters gonna dis. Only makes them feel better about themselves so eh. But yeah I had the same questions you did. Still, I think it was good that Oda revealed the origins of the scar early on. I mean if I read 100 more chapters of One Piece and the big reveal about the scar is that he got it from Akainu I would be seriously pissed off.

    As far as Zoro is concerned he probably lost his eye to Mihawk. What I'm pissed at is the fact that the Straw Hats haven't drawn attention to it. I mean hello your captain has this big ass scar on his chest and Zoro is missing an eye. Is someone going to give my boys some attention?

    [It would be funny as hell if Zoro has a Sharingan.]

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    i agree with most people here, it was fairly obvious before oda said anything. And i think luffy already proved how much stronger his gotten over a two year time span. and naruto had 3 years, personally i think that was just bad writing on kishimotos part

    What do fillers (non-canon) have to do with the manga (canon)? Let me help you out. Not a damn thing.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    how is luffy still alive anyway

    that shot went through his solar plexis, looking at how the lava seems to extend beyond luffy's body in the hit shot

    lots of essential nerves are bunched there, including those that keep the heart pumping

    his bronchi should have been burnt as well, not to mention his heart

    if the shot went through his entire chest, his spine should have been broken as well

    trafalgar law could possibly be one of the most gifted doctors in the world. i'm thinking very detailed grafting of nerves and bone/muscle tissue with his powers

    Well, theres a lot of things like that in the manga, like nobody seems to remember when crocodile skewered luffy with his hook, then left him under thousands of pounds of sand, while a mummy, seems like that would be lethal, and even so, that hit seemed to have severed jimbei's spine, as well as burning his lungs and who knows what else, yet he doesn't even have a single mark on him.

    That aside, in OP there seems to be something to be said for willpower, not even including haki, irl it is possible to survive wounds and diseases by willpower alone, just by willing yourself conscious, it is possible to avoid drowning for a longer time, I've even heard stories of people surviving shots to the head and other serious wounds, as well as stories of parents surviving fatal illnesses just long enough to see their children graduate and then dying shortly thereafter.

    In OP, serious, and even fatal wounds can be overcome with sheer willpower to a much greater degree, we saw that well in whitebeard during the war, since he had just a human body, but yet he kept fighting regardless of damage until the point when his hope ran out, and only died when he had no reason left to keep fighting in much the same manner, though clearly some things, like, say decapitation would be bound to work anyways, this is a real life, documented phenomena, whereby if one organ fails, another organ, or nerves or anything else can compensate, to prolong life for a very long time, OP just takes it much farther, allowing Rob Lucci to survive his wounds, albeit barely, and in fact many people who suffered lethal damage to go on to live a long, full life just because they had the will to live.

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    ....Remember the sight of Shanks made Whitebeard's scar from Roger ache? Scars in one piece are in important IMHO to signify rivalry especially between two strong Opponents, In the same way Is anyone else reminded of shank's scar when you see luffy's scar? Two great pirates who are great friends both have scars from two formidable opponents.Maybe its a foreshadowing that in the final battle Luffy's last foe will be Akainu while Shank's will deal with BB.Then again who knows...This is Oda after all, the scars could just be a beauty mark lol.

    Formidable opponents!?
    Just reminding you that Shanks' scars weren't Whitebeard's fault.

    It's Blackbeard that gave those scars to Shanks.

    And, IMO, Blackbeard is far from being a formidable opponent.
    So far, all he has done is talk big and run away in front of more powerful people...


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    Re: Luffy's Chest Scar

    Blackbeard is a formidable enemy if you use the right translation[] and he has already shown his ability to adapt after acquiring WBs powers. Not playing fair is part of battle too, like 99% of fights in OP.

    at no point in my post did I imply whitebeard caused shank's scar.If you recall when shank's came to visit him whitebeard's told him that the sight of him made the scar he got fro roger ache (as shanks was in rogers crew)......also blackbeard not a formidable opponent? R u reading the same manga I am?.....He's got two of the most powerful devils fruits,a crew of history's worst pirates and FACT:he did defeat ace,he fought a fleet admiral with no major damage and was directly responsible for whitebeard's ultimate demise...if this is not formidable to you I'd like to see what is.Maybe Oda should give him kyoka suigetsu and be done with it....just saying(lol)
