After gear 5 was introduced in the fight against one of the conquerors Kaido the king of beasts, revealing that it was a mythical zoan type awakening. It left many of the fans wondering just how strong exactly is the gear 5 and can luffy go toe to toe against many of the other much stronger opponents like the conquerors and the admirals. Today, we will answer the question : Can gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru ? One of the admirals, Kizaru, was first encountered on Sabaody Island, where he wiped off the majority, if not the entire, of the worst generation. This involved pursuing and destroying the entire band of strawhats and nearly killing Roronoa Zoro before the Dark King Silvers Rayleigh intervened. I have been following One Piece since 2008 and I will be your guide today. So take a seat and let’s sail !

Gear 5 Luffy Vs Kizaru :

Luffy, who aspires to be the Pirate King, will eventually have to face the admirals, including Kizaru, directly. While Luffy battles a number of formidable foes in the Whole-Cake Island and Wano arcs, we have also seen him struggle against a number of opponents, such as Cracker and Katakuri, who are neither on the level of an admiral. If you want to know more, let’s check his fight against the most famous vice-admiral gear5 luffy vs Garp ! This raises the pressing question of whether Luffy can defeat Kizaru. We’ve seen Luffy’s brand-new power-up, known as gear 5 or the legendary zoan awakening of his devil fruit. Let’s examine whether Luffy will be able to overcome Kizaru based on the criterias we have previously mentioned.

Can gear 5 luffy beat Kizaru ? the criterias :

  • Speed
  • Destructive capabilities/strength
  • Durability
  • Determination
  • Haki
  • battle Iq
  • Devil Fruits

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on Speed ?

Gear 2nd Luffy is quite fast, and gears 4 and 5 are equally as fast as each other. Unfortunately for Luffy however in this case, Kizaru is the fastest character in the entire One Piece universe, as evidenced by the fact that Kizaru quite easily caught up to and beat Luffy in the Marineford arc and destroyed most of the worst generations, including the Strawhats, in a matter of seconds.Enel is the only character who, in terms of pure speed, can be maybe compared to Kizaru. The win point for this criteria will very easily be given to Kizaru.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on Strength/Destructive Capabilities ?

The rubber-like properties of Luffy’s devil fruit allow him to attack with huge amounts of momentum, allowing him to deal an immense amount of damage to his opponents. We have seen this against a lot of opponents, some of which include Brueno, Katakuri, Doflamingo, and especially kaido. Luffy has always had a powerful punch behind his attacks from the beginning of the series to the present. However, this is nowhere near as destructive as Kizaru’s devil fruit abilities, which include him firing multiple rays of laser beams at his target, dealing enormous amounts of damage, not to mention his area of effect attack, « Yasakani no magatama, » which targets a large number of enemies. Kizaru can be seen attacking with his legs while being lazy and imbued with his devil fruit ability, knocking out many people. In the Marineford arc, when Kizaru assaults Marco and Whitebeard, his destructive talents are on display. While this criteria was very difficult to judge based on both characters’ capabilities, still the win point of this criteria will be given to Kizaru.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on Durability ?

Being a user of the Logia Devil Fruit makes Kizaru exceedingly difficult to injure, and the fact that he does not have any inherent weaknesses renders it impossible to harm him without the use of Haki. Kizaru was repeatedly struck by Marco the Phoenix throughout the Marineford arc, but he remained unaffected throughout the entire conflict and was the only Admiral who survived the end of the arc undamaged. Even while Kizaru’s durability is pretty excellent, it cannot be compared to Luffy’s. Because of his durability, Luffy has defeated opponents that were several times stronger than him throughout the One Piece storylines. In his battles with Kaido, Katakuri, Doflamingo, Crocodile, and Rob Lucci, Luffy’s durability was on display. While Kizaru’s durability is impressive and worthy of respect, it however does not outshine the durability that luffy has displayed thus far in the series and because of that the win point for this criteria goes to Luffy.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on Determination ?

We all know that Determination can win you fight and especially give you that extra bit of hidden power to fight against strong adversaries, As seen on Sabaody Island, Kizaru is a very sluggish individual who has little to no desire to battle any members of the worst generation and appears to be rather bored—quite the reverse of his devil fruit. This has always been the case with Kizaru throughout the course of One Piece; he has never before displayed a sincere desire to take any action. Contrarily, Luffy exhibits a great deal of emotion and grit in many of his battles, which has provided him a lot of force at times when his stamina was low or when he was on the verge of losing to Rob Lucci. Luffy would have an even stronger incentive to defeat Kizaru since, in addition to getting even for his brother Ace, he would regard this as a necessary step on the road to becoming Pirate King. The win point for this criteria is awarded to Luffy.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on Haki ?

Armament and Observation are two of Kizaru’s Hakis that he uses in the Marineford arc, demonstrating how well-rounded they are. Many people argue that Kizaru has the Conqueror’s haki, but since we haven’t seen him use it, we’ve decided that he can’t. In contrast, Luffy is proven to have mastered all three haki; his conqueror’s haki is as powerful as Kaido’s, his observation haki is as powerful as Katakuri’s, and his conqueror’s haki is demonstrated to be stronger than everyone. Shanks is the only person who, at the present, arguably possesses a Conqueror’s Haki that is stronger than Luffy’s. The win point for this criteria will very easily be handed to Luffy.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on battle IQ ?

Considering the available information, Luffy, the protagonist of One Piece, is more renowned for his instinctual brilliance and strategic thinking compared to Kizaru. While Kizaru is certainly intelligent and possesses tactical acumen as an admiral, Luffy’s ability to adapt and devise clever strategies in the heat of battle has been a defining trait throughout the series. Therefore, based on their demonstrated battle intelligence in the context of the One Piece storyline, Luffy could be considered the stronger character in terms of battle IQ.

Can Gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru on Devil Fruit?

With the use of his devil fruit, the pika pika no mi, Kizaru can command, generate, or change any portion of his body into light, enabling him to fire lasers and move at the speed of light. Making it one of the best logia devil fruits in the entire One Piece, it gave him an unbelievable level of strength and durability. The gomu gomu no mi, a devil fruit that gives Luffy the abilities of rubber and effectively transforms him into a rubber human, enables him to deflect bullets and not be damaged by standard attacks other than stabbing and piercing. It turns out that it is truly the nika model, a mythological zoan-type fruit, thanks to his recent awakening. It was also revealed that the marines have spent 800 years attempting to obtain this devil fruit. Although Kizaru’s devil fruit is one of the best logia types in the entire One Piece, Luffy’s devil fruit has turned out to be one of the rarest and most valuable fruit in the history of One Piece that was once wielded by Joy Boy himself. Thus making Luffy the winner of this criteria.

Can gear 5 Luffy beat Kizaru ? Final words :

We have come to the conclusion that gear 5 Luffy can defeat Kizaru, but it will be an extremely and highly difficult battle for Luffy where one wrong move can also result in his defeat. This is the result of extensive research on both Luffy and Kizaru as well as careful comparison of each criteria point.
