A little radical being the protagonist of the series.
The most fans of One Piece who have been watching the series since its inception will know that Luffy is very lucky to be alive., since, after all, this character has been about to die on multiple occasions. To give an example of this from quite early on, Arlong threw him to the bottom of the sea to drown, while Buggy almost decapitated him in the same square where Gol D. Roger died.
In short, it can be said that Luffy’s luck is quite remarkable, since he not only has to talk about the times in which he has been close to dying due to circumstances, but he has also faced great enemies and rivals that have forced him to subject his body to extreme levels on the physical plane, this being precisely what makes us think that it is quite probable that luffy didn’t get old.
Some of Luffy’s techniques are physically demanding.
To give a clear example of this, it can be seen that the Gear Second has been in charge of shorten Luffy’s lifespansince this technique implies that the pumping of blood through the body is much more accelerated, thus enhancing the strength and speed of the user, this being something that, according to the words of Rob Lucci, who ended up being defeated in a battle against the rubber boy, the problem with this technique is that can destroy the circulatory systemso every time he has used it, Luffy has dealt damage to himself.
In fact, it is not that Eiichiro Oda has taken this out of his sleeve, since in real life enlarged heart increases blood pressure, which can lead to all kinds of conditions that can be fatal for the person and can even lead to heart failure. Thus, the more you use it, the more likely its life will be shortened.
However, it does not just stop there, since in the Impel Down arc, Luffy suffered an alteration in his hormones to strengthen his immune system by Emporio Ivankoc, who used the powers granted by his Devil Fruit for this purpose since the rubber boy had been poisoned. However, this made his life was shortened by 10 years.
Luffy’s transformations end up doing damage to his health
On the other hand, Gear Third and Gear Fourth are not doing Luffy any favors every time he uses them, since despite not being explicitly stated, the changes Luffy suffers do him a lot of damage, which has led to more than one to think that Luffy will die relatively young as Gol D. Rogerwho died at age 53 in the One Piece manga and anime at the hands of the World Government after turning himself in.
Now, the solution to all Luffy’s problems could be in the hands of Trafalgar Law, an ally who, with the powers of his Op-op Fruit, could perform Perpetual Youth Surgery on Luffy to save his life, which he could also do. that the pirate becomes the immortal Sun God that sails the seas forever in search of new adventures, although it seems obvious that if this ends up happening, it will be will save for the end of the series.
Be that as it may, we will be waiting to see what ends up happening with Luffy, since the only sure thing is that, with the manga living what is already its last stage (which can last a year), it is now when Oda will show us the characters who will survive and those who won’t After so many years.
