When I was reading Impel Down Arc and saw Magellans ability i tought that if Luffy had something on his hands protecting him from standard Magellans poison he will have chance of winning(of course it was before i saw Kinjite and now I think how he can touch Admiral(Akainu anyone?) without taking damage.. And I think he need weapon to do so and in my opinion best weapon for Luffy will be some fighting gloves or something like that made out of same material as Whitebeards bisento.
So what do you think people???
id say knuckle's or something like that, he's not the type to use swords or other sort of weapon that needs mastery to be efficient.
I do remember once seeing Luffy using his slippers as gloves...Not sure whether that is in a filler or not though.
I'd say a..... nunchaku
He'll use Mr. 3
Kididing aside, I think Luffy will just use whatever he can use at the time. He's not the type who will carry a certain weapon all the time.
But, don't you think Luffy and Mr. 3 make a good combo? Mr. 3 can create any shape of armor/weapon for him, albeit as fragile as wax.
if he gets a weapon , it will be something that does not kill humans^^
well a pistol would suit him perfectly. (yeah this normally kills people but if you think about usopp using his kabuto that is supposed to be better than any pistol and is never killing anyone....^^) a bazooka would be good as well but i think in future luffy will just have to concentrate his haki on his finger and beat all people like bellamy up^^
since i dont think that luffy would use a weapon with a blade like sword or spear and since almost all of his attacks r punches or kicks of some kind, I would want him to use some kind of metal gloves but not gauntlets like nami used on sky iland
his strawhat with blade edges!!!
A magical rainbow unicorn horn to increase the power of his headbutts.
Or maybe some floaties
I find the notion of Luffy using an actual weapon inconceivable. I don't think Oda was planning to give Luffy any physical weapon. Why else would he have Luffy name his attacks based on weapons?
so he can use his gears on it
We have some great ideas so far!
Atm.. it's hard to imagine Luffy always carrying a weapon with him like Zoro or even WB for that matter. But, I would like to see Luffy use a unique weapon in the future! The weapon has to compliment his df ability.
@ cippy - Nice idea! LOL Imagine how it would look like if Luffy used a nunchaku with gomu gomu gatling. xD
Personally, I think it would be awesome if one of the SH's (be it Luffy or not & excluding Zoro!) used a df weapon.
Hi there guys, long time lurker, first time poster!
As Luffy gains more control over his Haki he'll hopefully be able to cause damage to Logia's. However he is still going to need something other than his fist to use on people such as Akainu or Magellen. He would be damaged as well if he started pounding on them even with Haki.
Now i can't see Luffy becoming proficient with a sword and also it would kind of clash with Zoro. He also isn't likely to become good with a weapon in a short period of time, so we may see him training with one at some point. Therefore do you think Luffy needs a weapon, and If so what could it be? I was thinking some sort of fist weapon, but how would it adapt when he used gear 3 etc.
A weapon or something to protect oneself certainly seems to be necessary when fighting someone like Akainu, Aokiji or Magellen.
I think that a weapon would certainly detract from Luffy's fruit abilities and general fighting style. However almost everyone in the New World has a weapon of some sort, perhaps for the very reason of dealing with pesky logias.
P.S I know there is a discussion as to whether Magellen is a logia or paramecia, but for all intents and purposes he is useful in this discussion
