    Luffy's Awakening/5th Gear

    I was trying to come up with what Luffy's possible awakening or 5th gear may be and it seems extremely difficult to predict because Luffy's powers have so much versatility being rubber based. So then I had a thought that Luffy will probably unlock his new strength (Awakening/5th Gear) close to the end of the series to get him ready to face the main antagonist (Blackbeard).

    With that being said, I think Oda would give Luffy an ability that put him on an equal playing field as Blackbeard, who currently has Gura-Gura and Yami-Yami and might possibly have a Zoan type by the EOS. So if we know all of that, what could luffy possibly do as a rubberman that will put him on the same level?

    Possibilities:

    - Full Manipulation of his elasticity: No longer needing to stretch or compress, just willing his body to do things (LAME)
    - Turning his surroundings into rubber and controlling them through his will (Rubber water, Rubber Air, Rubber Ground)
    - Something the resemble reality warping but with rubber properties


    These are a few that I came up with, but I want to know what you guys have considered. The only one that I think that would be appropriate to confront EoS BlackBeard is my second opinion. Please share your thoughts.

    None of this is really
    happening. There is a man.

    part of his crazy imagination

    The ability to produce rubber tendrils from his body. We already know how devastating Luffy can be with Gatling and that's just 2 hand imagine if he had those 2 hands plus another dozen or more all going at the same time. Imagine a bunch of King Kong Gun punches flying at you while Luffy stares you down with his arms crossed.

    First one he already does and the other two sound terrible. If he's gonna awaken, Gear 4th might as well be it.

    I feel like there needs to be something more powerful than the current 4th gear. Blackbeard is coming in Haxx

    He's talking about the bending reality part, he and Agent Phrank have posted something similar.

    It would help against Logia(though not really BB) by providing a bunch of haki arms to attack with.

    I dont see how luffy awakening his DF would help against BB if BB can nullify any DF power.

    "Oh No! The protagonists powers are too much for me to nullify!

    - Every villain that can nullify powers ever.


    Grandted, that's not how it's going to go, because Oda is better than that, and if Whitebeard wasn't too strong for the Yami Yami no Mi, nothing is.

    Thinking from a anime author perspective it's either what Hisoka has or expand in size.

    He can only nullify someone's power by coming into direct contact with the person

    He needs to establish contact with them via his hands. Luffy punching or kicking him wouldn't negate his powers.

    It would if Luffy's attack makes BB lose contact.

    You misunderstand. Blackbeard needs to establish contact with Luffy in order for Blackbeard to take Luffy's powers. If Luffy just punches Blackbeard, then Luffy's powers will remain intact. If Luffy is standing 10 meters away and punches Blackbeard, that contact between Luffy's fist and Blackbeard's cheek wouldn't cause Luffy's powers to be deactivated.
