5 One Piece Characters That Are Suitable To Be Luffy's Rivals

Monkey D Luffy is the main character in the One Piece series. As a character who becomes the Protagonist, it is certain and it is only natural that he has a rival. Well this time Dafunda Otaku wants to discuss the One Piece character who is suitable to be Luffy’s rival.

As usual, before going into the discussion, we would like to inform you that this article takes information on each character from existing sources. Still curious? Alright, let’s get started.

Here are the characters that are suitable to be Luffy’s rivals

1. Marshall D Teach

The first is Blackbeard, this character is a new Yonko who is also part of the Worst Generation. For those of you who are reading this article, you definitely agree that Teach is suitable to be Luffy’s rival.

Because the person who threw Ace into Impel Down was Blackbeard, then he is also the same as Luffy, who has a dream to find One Piece. Well, of course, many fans also hope that they will fight in the final battle.

2. Eustass Kid

The next character is Eustass Kid, this easy-going character is one of the characters who joined in Worst Generation. Junebe some of you don’t agree, but there are those who agree that Kid is Luffy’s rival.

But the reason we agree why the two of them became rivals is because for some reason this Kid seems to emit an aura that he is the main character’s arch rival. However, in this Wano Arc, Luffy and Kid formed an alliance to overthrow 2 Yonko.

3. Trafalgar Law

The next character is Trafalgar Law, just like the previous character he is also one of the characters who are members of the Worst Generation. Rather than being a rival, it looks like Law is like a friend.

But the reason we put him on this list is the same as Kid, even though Law is enough with Luffy and always helps him but it feels like Law is like a person who can balance Kid and Luffy for example like Sabaody.

4. Koby

Then there is Koby, this character is a member of Marineford. Doi is also the person Luffy helped when he fought Alvida. Even though Koby is Luffy’s friend and they are very close. But because he is on a different side, of course Koby will meet Luffy as an opponent.

But unfortunately quite a lot of people underestimate Koby because he is not as strong as Luffy. But we think, when the two of them meet later, of course Koby’s strength must have matched Luffy’s strength. The thing is that the one who trained Koby was Monkey D Garp, plus Koby wanted to become an Admiral.

5. Smoker

Lastly is Smoker, just like Koby this one character is also part of Marineford. Since Loguetown Arc, Smoker feels that Luffy is not an ordinary character. In fact, he always chases Luffy to the Grand Line.

From here, we have seen that the two of them are like real rivals. Even though they chase each other and like to fight when they meet, there are times when they work together to fight enemies who are stronger than them.


Thus the One Piece character who is suitable to be Luffy’s rival. So, after reading this article, which character do you think is the most suitable? Then if there are more interesting characters, don’t forget to comment.
