Read this article to find out. I have been following One Piece since 2008 with passion and I will be your guide today. So take as eat and let’s sail !

Gear 5 Luffy vs Blackbeard

Now, as we know, it is common speculation that Blackbeard will be Luffy’s final opponent in the series. Thus, only Oda himself can say for sure whether Luffy can beat him at this point or not. So we will put Luffy and Teach against each other in several categories to see who comes out on top. Through all of this, I, as someone who has been closely following the manga and ranking characters for years, will be your guide.

The Categories

The categories for the matchup will be
  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Endurance
  • Power
  • Haki
  • Devil fruits powers
  • IQ
  • Battle IQ

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of Strength?

During his fight with Ace, we saw that Teach was no pushover regarding brute strength, but his reliance on his Devil Fruit power made his strength secondary. With him gaining Whitebeard’s power, that reliance must only have increased. Luffy has trained his strength and physical abilities, thus giving him a clear advantage. His training made him unfathomably strong, and that strength shows in his fights. He would have an evident upper hand on Teach in terms of brute strength. Luffy wins on the strength.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of Speed?

Again, with his devil fruits, Teach does not need physical agility. Blackbeard is lacking in speed, but he can make up for it with his power, yet that disadvantage will benefit Luffy. Luffy’s entire fighting style revolves around his agility and fluid movements. His speed is one of his most utilized abilities, and with gear 5, he is now faster than ever, giving him another upper hand. Luffy wins at speed.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of Endurance?

Again, Teach is not the most durable of fighters, though he can make other logia vulnerable with his Yami-Yami no mi. He also comes at a risk. He does not have a high pain tolerance but can still take an unholy amount of damage. Luffy is a tank, his ability to take damage and keep on fighting has been visible in his past battles and would help him against Teach. Luffy wins at Endurance.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of power?

Now we come to a category where Teach has a clear upper hand. With the Gura-Gura no mi’s destructive abilities and the Yami-Yami no mi and its dark powers, Teach is a powerhouse, unmatched and untouchable. The sheer amount of power he has cannot be questioned. Luffy now has the power to change his surroundings and himself, limited only by his own imagination, but even that cannot counter the amount of destructive and defensive power Teach has. Luffy doesn’t stand a chance in the power department. Teach wins power.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard on Haki?

We have practically never seen Teach use Haki, but it is only logical that he has at least the basic two forms of it, and perhaps even conquerors. That being said, his devil fruits make it unlikely that he would train his Haki. Luffy is a master of future sight, Advanced armament, and conqueror’s coating. His tutelage under Rayleigh has made him one of the strongest Haki users on the verse. if you want to check a match-up between two monsters, check gear 5 luffy vs Whitebeard ! Luffy wins Haki with ease.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of Devil fruit powers?

Here, Teach shines. He has the strongest paramecia type and the most evil Logia type. He has the power of darkness and the powers of Whitebeard. He is perhaps the most powerful DF user in the show. Even though Luffy has a mythical Zoan type, he can’t match the simple fact that Teach has two devil fruits. Anyway, you look at it; Teach comes out on top with regards to DF abilities. He literally has a cheat code. Teach takes a landslide win in Devil Fruit abilities.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of IQ ?

Luffy is many things, but smart he is not. He is easygoing, relaxed, and a slave to his emotions. He has a childish outlook on life, and plans are not his thing, much to Law’s annoyance. Teach is a cunning and calculating schemer who spent years planning his rise. Teach is one of the most nefarious characters in the series, and blackbeard easily wins a battle of wits.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard in terms of Battle IQ?

Luffy may be dumb, but he is a genius. I know it’s confusing; let me explain. Luffy is brilliant when it comes to fighting; his innovation and silly attacks have won him many a fight. He comes up with ways to beat opponents as he is fighting them. Teach would not need to think on his feet in a GI because of his raw power, and that negligence would give Luffy an advantage. Luffy wins at Battle IQ.

Is Gear 5 Luffy stronger than Blackbeard ? Final words :

With all being said and done, we still don’t know Blackbeard’s true abilities or nature. Luffy has a clear upper hand here, but things might change if new information is revealed in the manga. For now, at least, the way things stand, yes, a gear 5 Luffy can beat Blackbeard. Gear 5 Luffy wins, with high to extreme difficulty.
