Let’s analyze Luffy’s impact on the world so far.
Luffy is indirectly responsible for the destruction of the Shichibukai system.
- He defeated 3 of them (Crocodile, Doflamingo and Moria)
- Hancock, Kuma, Jinbe, Mihawk and Law have always been unofficial/official allies of his.
- And Buggy, well…Buggy’s always been Buggy.
Luffy directly challenged the Word Government, forcing them to react.
- Declared war to save Robin.
- Punched a Celestial Dragon.
- Broke into Impel Down and escaped.
- Bummed rushed Marineford to save Ace.
Luffy is the bringer of the New Age
- He formed alliances to defeat Kaido.
- Embarrassed Big Mom in front of the world.
- Forced two Yonkos into an alliance.
- Has Shanks on his side (maybe…I still think there’s a big twist coming up with Shanks)
- Defeated Kaido while his allies Kid and Law defeated Big Mom
How the World sees Luffy now
- The Leader of the Worst Generation.
- One of the Four Emperors that rule over the New World.
- A thorn on the side of the World Government. According to the Five Elders, Luffy’s Devil Fruit gives one the properties of rubber in combat only limited by the user’s imagination, and the user brings smiles to people far and wide; the embodiment of “the Warrior of Liberation.” Awakening it, however, is said to strengthen their rubbery body exponentially and grant them more freedom to god-like levels, causing them to declare the Devil Fruit to be the most ridiculously powerful thing in the world! The Five Elders consider that preventing the fruit from awakening might be worth incurring the wrath of Kaidou, one of the Four Emperors, suggesting that they greatly fear the fruit’s power.
Luffy is always active, changing people and the World around him. With the defeat of both Kaido and Big Mom and the elimination of the Shichibukai system, the current world order will drastically change.
Luffy now possesses 3 Road Poneglyphs and is closest to both One Piece and unveiling the Void Century.
He has ties to the Revolutionaries, to multiple former Warlords, to Emperors and to strong independent forces like Rayleigh, Zunisha and now Vegapunk.
Almost every major event in the past years he was a major factor.
