One Piece: Road to Laughs, Vol. 3 finally clears up many mysteries surrounding the powers of the Sun God Nika and Luffy’s Gear Fifth.
Warning: contains spoilers for A play: Road to laugh Tale vol. 3!
fans of A play were shocked by the recent revelation that the story’s protagonist, Monkey D. Luffyhid a completely different set of Devil Fruit powers and abilities than previously believed, and the special Laughing Road Tale flight. 3 finally clears up many mysteries surrounding Sun God Nika and Luffy’s Gear Fifth.
From the first chapter of the series, A play readers believed that Luffy’s powers just ate the Gomu Gomu no mi, a Paramecia-type Devil Fruit that gives the body the properties of rubber. During the fight against Kaido, however, Luffy was finally able to “awaken” his abilities, a term used to indicate that a person’s mind and body are capable of harnessing their Devil Fruit’s true potential. When this happened, it was revealed that Gomu Gomu no mi was actually a false name given by the World Government to another Devil Fruit, whose existence they wanted to hide: the mythical Zoan Hito Hito no Mi, model: Nika. As with all other Mythical Zoan, this fruit grants powers related to a legendary figure, in this case a mysterious god called Nika. Once awakened, Luffy exhibited a bizarre set of powers, including the ability to alter his body and surroundings according to his imagination, which allowed him to defeat even “the strongest creature in the world”, Kaido.
The Laughing Road Tale the specials don’t usually contain any new information, but they do provide insight and clarification into some of the manga’s most important mysteries, such as the confirmation of Kaido and Big Mom’s downfall. Volume 3 focuses on Devil Fruit and Luffy takes center stage. It is clearly stated that awakening brings Luffy’s abilities to their peak, empowering him”transform imagination into reality.“Exactly how this happens is not clearly explained, but Luffy has the”weird ability to rubber his entourage.“Rubber is a highly malleable material, so this could explain Luffy’s cartoon-like abilities on display during the fight. For example, the special confirms that when he caught a lightning bolt, it’s because he turned it into rubber.
Laughing Road Tale flight. 3 adds a small new detail which turns out to be crucial in understanding Luffy’s new powers. In the section on Mythical Zoan types it is stated that “the majority of them appear to possess unique Paramecia-like abilities in addition to the standard Zoan transformations.” This means that Luffy’s classic Gomu Gomu The abilities are part of Nika’s powers, just like Kaido is able to shoot fire from his mouth as it is an ability of the Azure Dragon he transforms into, thanks to his Mythical Zoan. However, Luffy’s Devil Fruit remains unique. The special clarifies that Zoan’s awakenings do not affect the user’s environment (which happens with Paramecia), but only unlocks a new transformation. Luffy, instead, showed this exact ability after waking up, in addition to also transforming into a powerful new form (Gear Fifth).
This means that Luffy has awakened the powers of a Paramecia at the same time. and of a Zoan, which explains how he was able to defeat Kaido. Perhaps this is what is so unique about Nika’s abilities, and why this is considered “the most ridiculous power in the world.“Much remains to be explained about this devil fruit, such as who Nika really is and why the world government has tried in vain for centuries to keep its existence hidden. Some of the answers will come when A play is resuming publication after this month-long hiatus, but for now, fans will have to settle for this further clarification from LuffyDevil Fruit abilities provided by Laughing Road Tale flight. 3.
