Hello Nakama! I hope you’re doing well! In this article, we’ll be looking at who will win in an all-out fight amongst the strongest of both universes. Gear 5 Luffy from One Piece or Yoriichi Tsugikuni from Demon Slayer? Today, we will answer the question : Can Luffy Beat Yoriichi ? Now, if you’re caught up with the One Piece manga, you must know by now that Luffy has finally awakened his own Devil Fruit and has mastered all of his Haki’s Advanced Forms as well!  But the question remains, how strong is Luffy now with this awakened power? You and I both know that he is near-powerful in the One Piece Universe but how would he fare well against other strongest anime universe characters? I’ve been an anime fan since 2008. And I’ve been thinking about this for a long time.  Let’s set sail and find out!

Luffy vs Yoriichi

You all may know who Monkey D. Luffy is by now. Introduced as a kid who used to hang around with Shanks, One of the Four Emperors of the Sea and ate the mysterious “Hito-Hito no Mi Model: Nika Fruit” unbeknownst to Shanks who stole it from the World Government for reasons unknown.  He then proceeded to save Luffy’s life after a band of ruffians made fun of Luffy and lost an arm to a Sea King who was about to eat Luffy in the process, influencing him to become the King of the Pirates and find the One Piece. A classic introduction, I must say. And in the other corner, we have the quiet and mysterious Yoriichi Tsugikuni from Demon Slayer who was an ancestor to the main character Tanjiro Kamado and was one of, if not, THE strongest swordsman of his time. A user of the Breath of The Sun style which has become extinct since it was too powerful for the demons to handle, Yorrichi is a force to be reckoned with given his feats and all. But the question lies still: Who would prove to be victorious among the two?

The issues with this battle

Since the two characters belong to different universes with storylines, character arcs, settings, and power structures unique to them, it would be next to impossible to assess who the victor would be at the end of the bout.

Categories for battle assessment

We can, however, pit the two fighters against each other in the following categories:
  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Power
  • Endurance
  • IQ and Battle IQ
  • Destructive Power

Can Luffy beat Yoriichi in terms of Strength ?

Now, Luffy in Gear 5 is a deadly force to be reckoned with. His Strength is limited only by imagination.  I mean, you guys know how much damage he dealt to Kaido’s Full Zoan Form. Not to mention, HIS TRANSFORMATION INTO A GIANT WHEN ATTACKING KAIDO! As far as Yoriichi is concerned in terms of strength, he split Muzan’s neck in ONE STRIKE! That’s something that most Demon Slayers would struggle to do, even if the whole force teamed up to defeat him.  The guy is so strong that even in old age he sliced his demon brother Kokushibo’s neck in one strike as well. Talk about badassery at this level. Gear 5 Luffy wins over Yoriichi in terms of strength.

Can Luffy beat Yoriichi Yoriichi in terms of Speed ?

Yoriichi, in terms of speed, is pretty fast. So much so that he spliced Muzan into 1500-1800 pieces in mere seconds. That would be a Massively Hypersonic speed fast enough for the naked eye to render it invisible! Well, Gear 5 Luffy is the pinnacle of speed as well. If Luffy can dodge Kaido’s Destroyer of Death Thunder Bagua (which is his strongest attack), I’m pretty sure he can keep in touch with Yoriichi’s speed as well. Gear 5 Luffy would beat Yoriichi in terms of speed with a very low margin.

Can Luffy beat Yoriichi in terms of Power ?

When it comes to Power, Luffy would straight up obliterate most opponents in his paths.  Even in Base form when he destroyed a building WHILE AT THE SAME TIME fighting with Arlong and used the initial stages of Conqueror’s Haki during the Marineford War.  It’s only up to your imagination what Gear 5 would be like in terms of power (which is how this Devil Fruit works). The same can’t be said for Yoriichi in terms of raw power since he depends on his sword and technique more.  Gear 5 Luffy would completely obliterate Yoriichi in terms of Power.

Can Luffy beat Yoriichi in terms of Endurance ?

If we were talking about Pre-Timeskip Luffy, he would have a hard time facing MANY opponents. But Post-Timeskip Luffy is a different story altogether. Especially with his awakened Devil Fruit, Luffy would last for quite a while. Yoriichi, on the other hand, would waltz around the battlefield for a VERY long time and not get tired. Gear 5 Luffy and Yoriichi would tie in terms of Endurance.

Can Luffy beat Yoriichi in terms of IQ and Battle IQ ?

Gear 5 Luffy is VERY quick to adapt to battle seeing as how he lifted the ground just to block an attack from Kaido and could mimic AND master his opponent’s attacks without having prior knowledge about it as well! Yoriichi, on the other hand, is a natural-born genius and has never suffered any form of injury or defeat in his life. In his childhood, he hit his instructor so hard that he became unconscious and is known as the inventor of the “Breathing Techniques” in that universe. Gear 5 Luffy and Yoriichi would tie in terms of IQ and Battle IQ.

Can Luffy beat Yoriichi in terms of Destructive Power ?

Now, Gear 5 Luffy transformed into a giant, as mentioned above, and landed a HUGE blow on Kaido with his Advanced Conqueror’s Haki. So much so that Kaido landed deep in a volcano and causing an underwater volcanic eruption to begin with. Yoriichi has considerable destructive power as well, considering that he spliced Muzan in 1500-1800 pieces in his final form which would require BOTH speed and strength for accomplishing this feat. Gear 5 Luffy would pummel Yoriichi in terms of Destructive Power.
