One Piece Cliffhanger shares shocking news about Luffy’s Devil Fruit
A piece shared shocking news about Monkey D. Luffy’s Devil Fruit with the cliffhanger from the show’s final chapter! The war on Onigashima is currently undergoing a major change as the second round of fighting around the island has come to an end, and a third round of fighting is now set up as new adversaries meet. It has been a particularly difficult time for Luffy, however, as after his second notable loss to Kaido, he is now trying to wake up after being knocked out and thrown into the ocean.
The war is far from over even with Luffy knocked unconscious, and it looks like fans are learning some major aspects of his past in his absence. As Jimbei begins his first solo fight against Who’s Who, member of Tobi Roppo, it is revealed that Who’s Who was actually someone who kept devil fruit Gum-Gum that Luffy eventually ate. Which means that its fruit is far more important than anyone could have realized.
Chapter 1017 of the series sees Jimbei begin his fight against Who’s Who, and he begins to realize just how strong this member of Tobi Roppo is. Recognizing the fighter’s techniques as belonging to members of the World Government’s CP9, Jimbei puts two and two together and remembers hearing about a member of this group who had escaped from prison. While wondering why one of the members was jailed in the first place, Who’s Who confirms that it is indeed him.
He reveals he went through hell for a mistake he made 12 years ago. Even though he’s been touted as having the same potential as Rob Lucci (who currently leads the CP0 team), he’s still bitter towards the Straw Hat crew. Not because they hurt him directly, but because they remind him of the same mistake. 12 years ago he was guarding the Gum-Gum Fruit, and it was stolen from one of the World Government ships.
Who’s Who was then shocked to find out that Luffy appeared in the New World, he was the one who ate that same fruit that had been stolen. Of course, this revelation opens up all kinds of questions. We know it was in Shanks’ possession when Luffy ate it, and now it is implied that Shanks stole it from the world government. Now the big question is whether or not this was a simple crush and take, or whether it was a deliberate taking of this particular fruit.
And if so, what is so special about the Gum-Gum fruit that the world government wanted it so badly in their possession that they not only had CP9 to protect it, but imprisoned whoever had not known how to keep it. What does this say about Shanks and his ties to the government? What do you think of this revelation? Let us know all your thoughts on this in the comments!
