With the advent of Gear 5 in the anime and all the potential implied by this new ability, one can clearly wonder how far Luffy will go with his Gear 5 mode.
Does it come close to the power monsters of One Piece. We have a Yonko rated response element, let’s take a closer look at the Navy side.
That’s why today we are going to answer the question: Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora?
This is the first warning that spoilers are coming if you haven’t read the last few chapters of the manga, as this time we will talk about Luffy’s abilities after awakening the Gear 5 form and learn about the reality of his Akuma no Mi.
Without further ado, get ready, and let’s sail!
Gear 5 Luffy vs Fujitora
This is a fight we’ve seen before, there was a lot of potential that we didn’t get to see, as the fight was interrupted by the Dressrosa people helping Luffy escape and Fujitora letting him go.
Still, there were many ways in which both would fight and what abilities they would use against each other, something that managed to stand out in the battle is Fujitora’s ability to think of greater ways to generate damage on Luffy and how to keep him at a distance, as our captain does damage being close to the opponent, while Fujitora can do both.
Doing damage in the distance by making use of his fruit and, if they dare to get close, then it’s time to use his sword.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora? The fight’s categories:
To explore the capabilities between the two and a fair battle, we will try to visualize Fujitora in his full capacity to be at the Gear 5 level, in addition, we will analyze him in detail, following the following categories:
- Power (destructive capabilities).
- Battle IQ.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora in terms of Strength?
Mainly we should note that Luffy probably hasn’t reached his peak in strength, surely he has a lot to learn, while Fujitora, despite being blind, is at his maximum capabilities.
However, Luffy’s skills all have to do with contact, meaning kicks and mostly punches, while Fujitora uses a sword, making it clear that he prefers a strategic fight.
So, without a doubt, Luffy would win in a contest of strength.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora in terms of Speed?
Multiple times we have seen Luffy’s ability to react quickly, if we also count his observation haki, he is a fast opponent.
On the other hand, Fujitora would not be an admiral if he did not have great skills and also possesses the observation haki.
Although both would react quickly, in a fight where running is important, Luffy would most likely win.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora in terms of Power (destructive capabilities)?
Both characters possess incredible powers, however, the Hito Hito no Mi: Nika model fruit does not seem to cause destruction as a purpose, while Fujitora’s fruit is totally different.
The Zushi Zushi fruit is capable of dominating gravity by making multiple things float, including the ground, destroying everything in its path in order to attack its opponent.
Fujitora wins in this category.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora in terms of Endurance?
One of the most eiconic fights of the admirals was Akainu vs Aokiji and this one lasted 10 days, knowing that Akainu trusts in Fujitora’s potential, we can suppose that this admiral has the same potential.
Although Luffy has not yet had a fight that lasts so long he has been able to endure battles against Kaido and Big Mom -although with periods in which he rests when defeated- he is able to conclude a battle quickly.
However, Luffy would probably only hold out if he could take breaks in a battle where Fujitora is winning, without this possibility Fujitora would most likely hold out longer.
So Fujitora wins in this category.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora in terms of IQ?
Without any doubt Fujitora beats Luffy in this sense, he has much more experience in the world, as a Navy admiral he needs to have a lot of knowledge in techniques and strategies to weaken the enemy.
Although Luffy would put up a fight with brute force.
Fujitora wins this point.
Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Fujitora in terms of Battle IQ?
This particular category is a little more complicated because both know how to generate strategies depending on the enemy, in particular, I think Fujitora managed a better strategy against our captain, however, Luffy had many opportunities in which he could attack the admiral.
Opportunities that he took and knew how to take advantage of,
So, this time it’s a tie.
Undoubtedly Luffy has already demonstrated his skills with great opponents of the navy and pirates, especially against Kaido when he awakened his Gear 5 and in a fight between the yonkou and the admiral, I certainly consider that Kaido would win.
So Luffy, by defeating Kaido, could already defeat an admiral. The end result is that Luffy would win against Fujitora using Gear 5.
