A play 1053 is a monumental chapter. It marked the culmination of an epic war, which featured some of the biggest names in the A play world. The war involved two of the Yonko, members of the Worst Generation, and various other strong characters. With the war over, Luffy and the rest of the alliance can finally sit down for a while and bask in the glory.
The success of their alliance was due to the efforts of several characters, and three characters, in particular, stand out the most. These are – Monkey D. Luffy, Trafalgar Law and Eustass Kid. All three are members of the Worst Generation and captains of their respective crews. For most of the story, Luffy was deemed superior to the two in terms of strength, but after their exploits in the Land of Wa arc, all three have the same bounties. So does that mean they are all equal?
Law and Luffy
Law and Luffy have been sailing together for a while now. Law formed an alliance with Luffy at Punk Hazard. His plan was to take down Doflamingo for what he did to Corazon, but he masked his true intentions by saying he wanted to take Kaido down. At Punk Hazard, Luffy defeated Caesar, while Law defeated Vergo. Next, the two headed to the island of Dressrosa, where they were confronted by the malevolent Don Quixote Doflamingo.
Law managed to put up a decent fight against Doflamingo, but in the end, he was beaten hard by the King of Dressrosa. On the other hand, Luffy barely struggled against Doflamingo, in fact, the latter was lucky that Luffy’s Gear Fourth ran out before he could land the decisive blow. So, there is no doubt that Luffy shone the most in Dressrosa. Afterwards, Luffy and Law had to part ways in Zou because Luffy wanted Sanji back, so Law wasn’t involved in the Whole Cake Island arc. In the Whole Cake Island arc, Luffy was able to ruin Katakuri’s pristine record. It took Luffy a while to get started, but he managed to defeat the Sweet Commander.
Kid and Luffy
Eustass Kid and Luffy have been portrayed as rivals, but prior to the Wano Country arc, Kid had done absolutely nothing to warrant a comparison. He tried to fight Shanks and lost his arm. Kid also injured a Sweet Commander, which isn’t quite as big a feat as Luffy defeating two of them when he invaded Big Mom’s territory.
Kid was also crushed by Kaido and taken prisoner. Luffy and Kid have one thing in common and that is their dream. Both are very serious about their dream of becoming the Pirate King. Luffy can’t stand anyone trying to minimize his dream. He is ready to fight anyone who stands between him and his dream. Likewise, Kid shows no mercy to anyone who dares mock his goal.
Their exploits in Wano
Originally, Law, Luffy, Kid, Killer, and Zoro faced off against both Big Mom and Kaido, but over time it became clear that they couldn’t defeat them if they were together. Thus, the Supernovas decided to separate Big Mom and Kaido, and they were successful in their attempt. Kaido overwhelmed Law and Zoro with no problem. Only Luffy was able to cause significant damage to Kaido. So, Luffy asked Law to take Zoro and move to a safer place. Luffy also didn’t have the easiest times fighting Kaido.
He needed Yamato and Momonosuke’s help and they bought him time to regain his strength. After recovering, the fight between Luffy and Kaido was more even, and at some point it looked like Luffy would manage to do the unthinkable and defeat Kaido. Unfortunately, CP0’s interference allowed Kaido to land a crucial blow on Luffy. The Yonko was not thrilled with his win, as it was unfair. However, this incident caused Luffy to awaken his Devil Fruit, which ultimately helped him defeat Kaido.
Law and Kid were fighting Big Mom and, as expected, she was giving them a scorching time. Both Supernovas must have used their Devil Fruit to damage it. Law’s Devil Fruit awakening was the main reason for Big Mom’s defeat. His Devil Fruit is very overpowered and once again he got caught up in the fight against Big Mom. With his awakening, he stopped Big Mom’s voice from reaching his buddies, and eventually knocked her to the ground with his Puncture Wille attack.
All three Supernovas had to work hard to win their respective fights, but what separates Luffy from the other two is that he was fighting Kaido 1v1. True, he was helped by Yamato and Momonosuke, but it was only for a short time. For the majority of his fight, Luffy fought Kaido alone.
On the other hand, Law and Kid had to team up to defeat Big Mom. It’s as clear as day that if Law or Kid had tried to fight Big Mom in a 1v1, they would have been wiped out. Thus, the bonuses the three of them received do not reflect their individual strength. As things stand, Luffy is unquestionably stronger than Law and Kid.
