The Reason Why Oda Gives Gomu Gomu To Luffy

Luffy is the main character in the One Piece series, even though he is a pirate. However, Luffy has a funny nature and likes to help people in need. Well this Luffy is the one who eats the Gomu Gomu no Mi and also a character who can use Haki, this time we want to discuss the reason why Oda gave Gomu Gomu to Luffy.

As usual, before getting into the discussion, we would like to inform you that this article draws on information from existing sources and a few opinions. Still curious? Alright, let’s get started.

Here’s the Reason Why Oda Gives Gomu Gomu To Luffy

1. Basic Information About Gomu Gomu

The first thing we will discuss is basic information about Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Mi. So this Devil Fruit is a Paramecia Type that can turn the person who eats it into a rubber man.

If we think about it properly, this fruit actually has a ridiculous power and does not have a lethal attack. It’s even more of a good defense, for example Luffy can withstand bullets, cannons or punches.

2. Luffy Has Many Ideas?

The next reason is because Luffy has a lot of ideas? Actually this is not completely wrong or right. Because starting from the thoughts and nature of Luffy, he is like a barbarian boy who acts first and then thinks.

But on the one hand it’s true that Luffy has an extraordinary idea, to the point that a fruit that was initially thought to be weak can turn deadly. Well, for example, when Luffy uses Gear 2, Gear 3, Gear 4 and other abilities, which makes strong enemies fall.

3. Gomu Gomu is actually a special fruit

The last reason is because actually Gomu Gomu is a special fruit. So when the Onighashima war happened, precisely when Who’s-Who fought Jinbe, he once revealed that he was part of CP9.

However, for failing to secure the Gomu Gomu no Mi, Who’s-Who got punished and his position was released. So from here we can assume that this fruit, despite its ridiculous strength, is valuable in the eyes of the World Government.


That’s the reason why Oda gave Gomu Gomu to Luffy. So, after reading this article, what do you think about this? Then don’t forget to comment.
