Mizu Luffy
Luffy as Mizu Luffy (top) and Luffy spitting at Crocodile (bottom)In the fight with Crocodile, the leader of Baroque Works, Luffy used a barrel filled with water, in order to weaken Crocodile and make him vulnerable by disabling his ability to use his sand-morphing ability. With this Luffy could coat his appendages with water and use water-supported attacks against Crocodile along with a plan to soak Crocodile completely with water. However upon realizing the barrel and it's contents were in too much danger from Crocodile's attacks, Luffy later drains the entire barrel of water, becoming Mizu Luffy (水ルフィ, lit. Water Luffy). Though at first glance the form looks idiotic and somewhat flawed as he had trouble keeping the water down (to the point of causing even Nico Robin to burst out laughing), it allowed Luffy to safely store the water and spit it out at Crocodile for use. Luffy stayed in this form until he was completely dried up by Crocodile.[39]

Mizu Mizu no Pistol (水水の銃(ピストル), Water Water Pistol): By drinking a barrel of water and becoming "Mizu Luffy", Luffy pumps water into his mouth with his arms before he spits spheres of water at his opponent. This was first seen being used against Crocodile. Aside from Luffy's regular Devil Fruit techniques enhanced by water while in this form, this the only named attack used by Luffy unique to this form. In the Viz Manga, this is called Water-Water Pistol.



[edit] Afro Luffy
Afro LuffyDuring the Davy Back Fight arc, Luffy had to face Foxy the Silver Fox in the final event, Combat. Beforehand, he got to choose what he would wear for the fight. Usopp, who was with him, spotted a big black afro, and had Luffy wear it. Thus, Afro Luffy (アフロルフィ, Afuro Rufi) was born.[40]

Usopp claims that the afro gives Luffy extra power. While donning the afro, Luffy also donned boxing shorts, boxing gloves, some type of straps on his feet, and had a temporary tattoo of a flaming skull and cross-bones on his chest. While wearing the afro, Luffy also tends to say things such as "Hell yeah!". Although only Nami and possibly Zoro think that it doesn't help anything, the others say "Because of the afro..." is how he gets more powerful (but they might be joking or just playing along).

Although this form only appears once in the original manga, Afro Luffy returns again in a filler episode. When Foxy tries to get his ship and crew back, he is forced to ask for Luffy's help. When doing so, he hands over the afro he had before, and Luffy uses it to fight.

The known Devil Fruit attacks that Luffy uses in this form are as follows:

Gomu Hook (ゴムフック, Rubber Hook): Luffy launches an elongated hook, which can hit the enemy’s back due to his stretching ability. In the Viz Manga and the video game One Piece Grand Adventure (dubbed by 4Kids), this move is called Gum Hook.
Gomu Gomu no Flail (ゴムゴムの連接鎚矛(フレイル), Rubber Rubber Flail): Luffy swings one arm in a circle at high speed, then drives his fist into his opponent. In the Viz Manga and One Piece Grand Adventure, this is called Gum-Gum Flail.



[edit] Gear SecondFor the chapter of the same name, see Chapter 388 - Gear Second.

Luffy in Gear 2nd.Gear Second (ギア2(セカンド), Gia 2 (Sekando)) is a powerful form that was first seen in Luffy's fight against Blueno.[41] Luffy pumps his blood rapidly with his legs to kick start the process which in turn, increases the speed of his blood flow, thus providing more oxygen and nutrients to various parts of his body which makes him faster and stronger. It uses even more oxygen and energy, hence using up more food and he has to breathe harder. The increase in his metaboism causes him to be hungrier than usual or even a paralytic type effect after a long usage of it, like in the second fight with Rob Lucci where luffy was only able to lie on the floor. Lucci, one of the first of Luffy's opponents to witness it, compares the process to taking a stimulant. In Luffy's case, all of his organs are made up of rubber, so they can expand and contract, allowing the blood to move at the increased speed without stressing any internal organ, such as the blood vessels and the heart, without causing it to explode. This mode's enhancements to Luffy's physiology gives him the ability to use a new, stronger set of techniques which are generally the same as his old ones, but are so fast that even a skilled assassin would have a hard time actually seeing them. This is called Gear Two in the Viz Manga and Second Gear in the FUNimation subs.

This form also enables Luffy access to his own version of the Rokushiki technique, Soru, which would make sense since he used Soru's principle, which is to kick the ground ten or more multiple times to propel the user over to a desired distance at imperceivable speeds, as the basis of Gear Second by incorporating it with his Gomu Gomu No Mi powers. In other words, Luffy practically uses his elastic body by compressing it and using it as the kick-off point when initiating Gear Second. As a result, he can not only utilize a much more refined form of Soru that is far superior to other Soru users, but the power of his attacks are also greatly enhanced by the great speed that they seem to break the sound barrier, generating sonic boom-like effects in the process. In this form, his metabolism rate is so high that his sweat vaporizes rapidly giving rise to a steaming appearance, and his skin turns slightly pink from the increased blood flow. He also says almost all of his attacks in English as opposed to Japanese. Luffy also tends to take a certain pose right after activating Gear 2nd with one hand making a fist and touching the ground in front of him and the other one touching his knee, possibly to maintain the increased blood flow until the process has stabilized.

At first Luffy can only use Gear Second for a short period of time, because the accelerated speed at which nutrients are used up depletes his stores rapidly. The mechanics behind this enhancement thus also mean reduced strength and ability after significant amounts of usage, as pointed out by Lucci when Luffy's attacks start losing their speedy edge because with all his nutrients running low, having a faster blood flow would be useless as there are no nutrients to use. Due to this, as also pointed out by Rob Lucci, Gear second hacks away Luffy's life force dramatically, increasing a chance of having a much shorter life because he is starving his body, though Luffy rebutles, saying that it doesn't mater as long he saves his nakama.[42] After Gear Second wears off, Luffy can recover quickly through replenishing of his nutrient storage by eating meat. Recently, Luffy has demonstrated more excessive use of his Gear second ability throughout the cause of the Impel Down arc without such exhausting costs like his fight with Rob Lucci, as well as being able to activate it at conveniently brief periods to save his stamina and strength reserves for more lasting durations. This is possibly because of Luffy's mastery over the form along with his desire to save Ace.

While not considered canon, in the 7th movie of the series which takes place before the Water 7 arc, Luffy briefly and unknowingly activated Gear Second during his fight against Ratchet, the antagonist of the film, when the sheer pressure of the machine Luffy is forced to hold up unknowingly causes his legs to end up pumping his blood flow.

The known named techniques that are used by Luffy so far in this form are as follows:


Luffy activating Gear Second and using Gomu Gomu no Jet Pistol.Gomu Gomu no Jet Pistol (ゴムゴムのJET銃[ピストル], Rubber Rubber Jet Pistol): Luffy delivers a Gomu Gomu no Pistol so fast that the fist's movement is invisible, and it truly seems like he shoots his opponent, except that the resulting impact is not akin to an actual pistol, but to a small hand-held cannon and powerful enough to propel the unlucky recepient several meters away. The incredible speed both makes the strike more powerful, and harder to dodge. In the Viz Manga, this is called Gum-Gum Jet Pistol. This was first seen being used against Blueno.[43]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Rifle (ゴムゴムのJET回転弾, Rubber Rubber Jet Rifle): A Gear Second technique that first appeared in the anime. Luffy delivers a very fast Gomu Gomu no Rifle. The winding of the original Rifle along with its snapback happening almost at the same time as Luffy speeds towards the target makes this move impossible to evade. In the Viz Manga, this is called Gum-Gum Jet Rifle. This was first seen in the anime being used against Blueno.[44]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Stamp (ゴムゴムのJETスタンプ, Rubber Rubber Jet Stamp): Luffy delivers a Gomu Gomu no Stamp, with the same effect as the Jet Pistol. This was first seen being used against Blueno.[43]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Yari (ゴムゴムのJET槍, Rubber Rubber Jet Spear) or Gomu Gomu no Jet Lance(ゴムゴムのJETランス, Rubber Rubber Jet Lance): A Gear Second technique that first appeared in the anime. Luffy delivers a very fast Gomu Gomu no Yari that seems to connect instantly with his opponent. This was first seen in the anime being used against Blueno.[44]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Missile (ゴムゴムのJETミサイル, Rubber Rubber Jet Missle): A Gear Second technique that first appeared in the anime. Luffy stretches and grabs onto an enemy's body. Then, he very quickly retracts, crashing into the foe. This was first seen in the anime being used against Blueno.[44]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Bazooka (ゴムゴムのJETバズーカ, Rubber Rubber Jet Bazooka): Luffy charges at his opponent at high speed, and delivers a very fast and very strong Gomu Gomu no Bazooka. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation subs, this is called Gum-Gum Jet Bazooka. This was first seen being used against Blueno.[43] It was apparently powerful enough to break through Blueno's strongest Tekkai technique, Tekkai: Gou. During the battle against Moria in his Shadows Asgard form, Luffy demonstrated being able to use this move to propel himself from mid-air, allowing him to perform this attack continously.
Gomu Gomu no Jet Axe (ゴムゴムのJET斧, Rubber Rubber Jet Axe): A Gear Second technique that first appeared in the anime. Luffy stretches his leg vertically and then crashes it down on his opponent, unlike the usual version however, rather than merely smashing his foot into the enemy the speed at which it is done is so quick that rather than attacking the area directly in front of him, his Jet axe strikes several metres in length, thus increasing its range. This was first seen in the anime being used against Lucci.[45]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Whip (ゴムゴムのJET鞭[ウィップ], Rubber Rubber Jet Whip): Luffy delivers a Gomu Gomu no Muchi, so fast, that only the slipstream is visible. In the Viz Manga, this is called Gum-Gum Jet Whip. This was first seen being used against Rob Lucci in order to protect Franky from him.[46]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Bullet (ゴムゴムのJET銃弾[ブレット], Rubber Rubber Jet Bullet): An extremely fast, close-range punch. When attacking head-on, the stretching of the original Bullet along with the resulting snapback seem to occur almost simultaneously at once, making it virtually inescapable. This was first seen being used against Rob Lucci.[47]
Gomu Gomu no Twin Jet Pistol (ゴムゴムのツインJET銃[ピストル], Rubber Rubber Twin Jet Pistol): Luffy punches with both arms simultaneously. Visually, the move only differs from his normal Gomu Gomu no Bazooka in that instead of doing an open palm strike, he has clenched fists which leave two knuckle shaped imprints on his foe. As since the move hit so fast, the air from it really looks like Luffy is literally firing two pistols. This was first seen being used against Rob Lucci and is one of the few moves unique to Gear second[47] (unless the anime-only regular "Gomu Gomu no Twin Pistol" is included). In the Viz Manga, this is called Gum-Gum Twin Jet Pistol.

Gomu Gomu no Jet GatlingGomu Gomu no Jet Gatling (ゴムゴムのJET銃乱打(ガトリング), Rubber Rubber Jet Gatling): This is one of Luffy's strongest techniques. Luffy stands still, and moves his arms so fast that they become invisible, covering the enemy with punches (each with the force equal to Jet Pistol) in a mere split second. This results in an effect comparable to Foxy's Kyuubi Rush, except that Luffy doesn't need to make use of Noro Noro photons to slow down his target in order to accumulate the hits. The hits land so fast that, after a volley, they seemingly connect simultaneously, while a circle of airbursts from the punches surround Luffy. The circle resembles the many barrels of a real gatling gun. However, due to the large amounts of energy it uses, Luffy cannot sustain it for long, although the time it is used is considerably longer than the regular gatling.[48] During his fight against the combined efforts of Marigold and Sandersonia, Luffy demonstrated an omnidirectional version of this move by falling on his back, then, while lying down, launches a rapid barrage of powerful high-speed punches from the ground, effectively nullifying both sister's attacks.[49] In the Viz Manga, this is called Gum-Gum Jet Gatling.
Gomu Gomu no Jet Rocket (ゴムゴムのJETロケット, Rubber Rubber Jet Rocket): A Gear Second version of Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Rocket technique. After grabbing onto something with stretched out arms, Luffy instantly propels himself forward with blinding speed. This was first seen being used against Moria.[50]
Gomu Gomu no Jet Cannon (ゴムゴムのJET攻城砲 (キャノン), Rubber Rubber Jet Cannon): A Gear Second version of Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Cannon. It was not seen as a single attack but it was seen fused with Zoro's and Sanji's techniques in a combination attack. The time Luffy launches his punches in order to "charge" the attack seems to be shorter and the impact, obviously, is higher in this form. This attack form part of the Santouryuu Gomu Gomu no Diable Jet Mutton 600 Pound Cannon. It was first seen against Pacifista PX-4, a replica of Barthlomew Kuma.
Gomu Gomu no Jet Migawari (ゴムゴムのJET身代り), Rubber Rubber Jet Substitute): Somewhat of a gag move where Luffy stretches his arms to grab a person (an ally, an opponent, or otherwise an simple bystander) from afar then pulls them close to where he is to block an attack that Luffy would otherwise be incapable of surviving on his own. Using his Gear Second speed, Luffy can capture himself a shield very quickly. He has a normal (non Gear Second) variant of this move where Luffy sends the recipient spinning towards the assaulter to preoccupy them as he makes his escape. This was first seen being used by Luffy on Buggy, using the latter as a human shield against Mihawk.
[edit] Gear Third
Luffy activates Gear Third.Gear Third (ギア3(サード), Gia 3 (Saado)) is another powerful form that is first hinted at the climax of the fight between Luffy and Blueno, and first used, but not witnessed, to knock down a steel door in Enies Lobby.[51] It was first fully seen in Luffy's fight against Lucci.[52] Luffy corks his mouth with his thumb, bites into his thumb joint and blows very hard into it, which inflates his arm. He is then able to transfer the air through his entire body, requiring the torso to act as an interface for his various limbs. Luffy blows so much air into his body that when they're all focused on a single limb, they become the size equivalent to (or greater than) that of a giant's. Used with his already-strong physiology, this apparently gives his arm more mass and a larger area to attack with far greater strength, but he sacrifices mobility for this strength, as his limbs are now so large that Luffy has extreme trouble moving unless in his Fuusen form. This is called Gear Three in the Viz Manga and Third Gear in the FUNimation subs.


Luffy using Gomu Gomu no Gigant Pistol.Gear Third is generally used when raw physical strength is needed, the bones are the key difference between this form and his old "Gomu Gomu no Fuusen" move, where his balloon form was soft and squishy like a regular balloon, whereas the inflated bones are very hard, similar to an inflated car tire. Unlike the normal Gomu Gomu no Fuusen technique, bullets ricochet off of Gear Third instead of bounce off. The bones being much harder also mean a lot of compression of air takes place when using Gear Third, making Gear Third not just a 'for-show' move as Lucci initially thought, but like a giant mace of astounding mass when used in attacks. In between his attacks, Luffy brings the air back to his chest and then shifts it into another body part. The downside is, the lag time in which it takes Luffy to transfer and re-channel the amount of air trapped inside his bones through his very being can be disadvantageous. Furthermore, it is quite difficult for Luffy to move while part of his anatomy has been converted to gigantic proportions, making the Gear inadvisable to use against opponents capable of moving at high speeds (like Lucci) or in an enclosed place as he is leaving himself vulnerable to attack, which is why since his battle against Rob Lucci, Luffy tends to only activate Gear Third against massive and often slow-moving targets whom he likes to assault with his Gear Third moves coming from high above in mid-air, where the said attacks could not be obstructed. To deactivate Gear Third, Luffy leaves the form by exhaling heavily, which can cause him to be propelled backwards.


Luffy after deactivating Gear ThirdThe deactivation of Gear Third brings about shrinking, which is a negative side-effect due to the massive expansion undergone prior to release. The amount of time Luffy spends in his shrunken form is roughly equivalent to the amount of time spent in Gear Third mode. This shrunken form has shown little to no ability to stretch at all, and it has been shown that Luffy loses a incredible amount of strength when he kept hitting Lucci's face to no effect. The best strategy Luffy could use, while waiting for himself to return to normal, is to run and hide from an opponent for the duration of the shrinkage. Another strategy is only using Gear Third for a few seconds for only one move so his shrinkage is minimized. His clothes shrink as well to fit his small size as it's one of the Devil Fruit's Abilities - Clothes expands or contracts according to the Devil Fruit's abilities's size. However, as of recent chapters this disadvantage has not been seen.

The known named techniques that are used by Luffy so far in this form are as follows:

Hone Fūsen (骨風船, Bone Balloon): Luffy inflates his body by blowing air into his bones. This is done by biting into his right thumb, presumably cutting it open down into to the bone, and then blowing air directly into the opened bone. This technique seems to give Luffy a sturdier defense than the regular balloon, since bullets now ricochet off of him instead of bouncing off of him. This was first fully shown in Luffy's battle against Rob Lucci.[52]
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Pistol (ゴムゴムの巨人の銃(ギガント・ピストル, Rubber Rubber Giant Pistol)): Luffy delivers a Gomu Gomu no Pistol with extremely high amounts of power due to the larger size of his fist. This was first fully seen being used against Rob Lucci.[52] Its sheer power was able to fling him from the Bridge of Hesitation on to a Buster Call Battleship. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation subs, this is called Gum-Gum Giant Pistol.
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Axe (ゴムゴムの巨人の斧(ギガント・アックス, Rubber Rubber Giant Axe)): A Gomu Gomu no Ono with even more power due to his enlarged foot and leg. This was first seen being used against Rob Lucci. Its sheer power is able to damage and create a hole in the deck of a Buster Call Battleship.[53]
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Whip (ゴムゴムの巨人の鞭(ギガント・ウィップ, Rubber Rubber Giant Whip)): Gomu Gomu no Muchi with more power due to his enlarged foot and leg. This was first seen being used against Rob Lucci. Its sheer power is able to damage the mast of a Buster Call Battleship.[53]
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Bazooka (ゴムゴムの巨人のバズーカ, Rubber Rubber Giant Bazooka): A Gear Third version of Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Bazooka attack. To create this attack, Luffy inflates both his arms by biting both his thumbs and blowing into them. With both his arms inflated to large proportions, Luffy delivers then the attack onto an opponent the same way he regularly does with a normal Gomu Gomu no Bazooka attack. This was first seen being used against Oars to break his spine.[54]

Gigant Jet ShellGomu Gomu no Gigant Jet Shell (ゴムゴムの巨人のJET砲弾(ギガント・ジェットシェル, Rubber Rubber Giant Jet Shell)): While still in Gear Second, Luffy goes into Gear Third with Hone Fuusen. With the combination of Gear Second's speed and Gear Third's air within his bones, Luffy launches his air filled body and rams onto an opponent like a large cannonball. This move is rather reckless as Luffy suffers both from the excess burn on his body from Gear Second, and the difficulty of moving his body from Gear Third. This was first seen being used against Moria.[50]
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Rifle (ゴムゴムの巨人回転弾(ギガント・ライフル, Rubber Rubber Giant Rifle)): Luffy activates Gear Third to expand one of his arms and then use it to launch a giant version of the original Gomu Gomu No Rifle at a target, drilling hard into the unfortunate target.[55] This attack is strong enough to destroy the heavily-armored Pacifista and defeat a giant Vice Admiral, and was first seen being used to defeat PX-4 on the Sabaody Archipelago. The fist produced in this attack is approximately the same size as the entire body of the giant Vice Admiral Luffy uses it to defeat. This is called Gum-Gum Giant Rifle in the FUNimation subs.
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Stamp (ゴムゴムの巨人の印章, Rubber Rubber Giant Stamp): Luffy activates Gear Third and expands his foot to deliver a giant version of Gomu Gomu no Stamp. Incidentally, this was first used in conjunction with Mr. 3's Giant Candle Wall to push it back. This was first seen being used against Magellan in Impel Down.[56] In the Viz Manga, this is called Gum-Gum Giant Stamp.
Gomu Gomu no Gigant Fūsen (ゴムゴムの巨人の風船, Rubber Rubber Giant Balloon): Luffy activates Gear Third and expands his torso to create a giant version of his traditional Gomu Gomu no Fuusen. This move was strong enough to cushion the impact from a massive adversary and was first used to protect Ace and Mr. 3 from a punch of Sengoku in his giant form
