5 Reasons Why Luffy Has Difficulty Fighting Blackbeard

Monkey D Luffy is the main character in the One Piece series. Now these two have aspirations to become the Pirate King, meanwhile Blackbeard is one of the Yonko who has aspirations to find One Piece. According to some fans’ opinions one day Luffy will fight Blackbeard. Well this time we want to discuss the reason why Luffy will have a hard time fighting Blackbeard.

As usual, before getting into the discussion, we would like to inform you that this article is just an opinion. Still curious? Alright, let’s start the discussion together.

The following is a discussion of why Luffy will have difficulty fighting Blackbeard

1. Yami Yami no Mi Can Eliminate the Power of Gomu Gomu no Mi

The first reason is because of the power of Yami Yami no Mi Blackbeard’s. So as we know the power of Blackbeard’s Devil Fruit is very unique and is considered very dangerous for Devil Fruit Users.

Now one of his abilities is being able to neutralize the power of other Devil Fruits. So in our opinion, although Luffy’s body is elastic due to the nature of rubber, the Yami Yami no Mi’s power is able to neutralize it.

In short, Luffy’s elastic body can return to normal like a human body. Even if we remember right at the Impel Down Arc, Luffy was screaming in pain because the strength of his rubber was neutralized by Blackbeard.

2. Yami Yami no Mi Can Block Luffy’s Movement

Apart from neutralizing the power of another Devil Fruit, apparently Yami Yami no Mi have other abilities. Well, one of them inhibits a person’s movement, well more or less a Black Hole that sucks and inhibits movement.

Well so in our opinion, if the two of them fight, Blackbeard can neutralize the power Gomu Gomu no Mi. Then when Luffy’s body was like an ordinary human, Blackbeard immediately stopped Luffy’s movement.

3. Blackbeard Has Gura Gura no Mi

The next reason is that Blackbeard has Gura Gura no Mi. Besides Yami Yami no Mi Of course, Blackbeard has other Devil Fruit powers. Well as we know another Devil Fruit power is related to earthquakes.

So in our opinion, just when Luffy’s body is like a normal human and he can’t move, then Blackbeard can use power Gura Gura no Mi to hit Luffy’s body.

4. Blackbeard’s Resilience is Outstanding

Then Blackbeard has extraordinary body resistance. Well, according to the information we got Yami Yami no Mi this gives the effect of pain doubled to the person who eats it.

In addition, even though this fruit is a Logia type, it cannot change the body of the eater into a natural element like other Logias. From here, we already know that Blackberd does have extraordinary physical endurance.

5. Blackbeard Will Use Ancient Weapons

The last reason is that Blackbeard will use an Ancient Weapon. Well, if Blackbeard is Luffy’s last enemy, he will definitely prepare something extraordinary.

If this is true, then the battle between Luffy and Blackbeard will last a long time and of course it will be lively. The problem is that in addition to Blackbeard’s strong resistance, the existence of Ancient Weapons adds to the excitement.


That’s the discussion about Luffy having trouble fighting Blackbeard. So after reading this article, what do you think? Do you agree or have other opinions.
