Warning: Spoiler for One Piece chapter #1090Luffy recently challenged and defeated one of the four Pirate Emperors, Kaido, but A piece came up with an opponent that scared Luffy more than Kaido ever did, despite the fact that the Straw Hat captain now has access to his powerful Gear Fifth. Kaido is considered the “World’s Strongest Creature”, but even after Luffy lost to Wano’s main nemesis three times, he never showed any fear like in chapter #1090 when Admiral Borsalino “Kizaru” stepped forward. into the battlefield.
Ever since the One Piece manga returned from a long hiatus, the Egghead Island arc has been fueled by an epic clash between the forces of the World Government and the new alliance between Dr.Vegapunk and the Robbers. Straw Hat Sea. Luffy’s first meeting with the Five Elders kicks off a powerful confrontation when the World Leaders reveal their plans to the Straw Hats’ captured and traitor Egghead, Vegapunk Satellite York. Unfortunately, the tide of the battle quickly changed in chapter #1090 of One Piece, when Admiral Kizaru finally appeared on the island. Kizaru’s sudden appearance was immediately noticed by Luffy, and judging by the expression on his face, the Admiral scared Luffy more than Kaido ever did.
Luffy defeats Kaido, but Admiral Kizaru really scares him
In the past, Luffy had good reason to fear Borsalino. Prior to the series timekip, after Luffy punched a World Noble in the Sabaody Archipelago in the face of the Sabaody Archipelago, the Straw Hats were confronted with the wrath of Admiral Kizaru, one of the Navy’s highest ranking officers and the Pika Pika no Mi Logia Devil Fruit user. . He easily surpassed Luffy and his crew with his speed of light and laser power. Without the help of Silvers Rayleigh, the former Pirate King’s former First Mate, and Bartholomew Kuma’s teleportation ability, the Straw Hats would indeed have been killed or captured. The crew’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Kizaru was indeed the catalyst for each member to take a two-year break from training and become strong enough to face the dangers of the New World. After years of power-ups, readers may soon learn how Luffy’s crew can stand up to the Marine Admiral, who previously ravaged them.
If Kizaru wins the first battle against Sentomaru on Egghead Island, the long-awaited rematch between the Straw Hat Pirates and the Speed of Light Admiral could be Luffy’s toughest One Piece battle yet. In fact, Luffy’s reaction and his expression of pure fear are somewhat surprising, as the Marine Admirals have lost most of their intimidating aura when stronger characters take to the stage. , such as the Yonko, including Big Mom and Kaido. When a new Admiral, Ryokugyu, appeared in Wano after his battle with Kaido, the Straw Hats showed their maturity by remaining calm and almost indifferent to the presence of such a powerful figure. So.
Luffy’s battle with Kizaru is the long-awaited rematch
Most fans assume that, now that Luffy has awakened his Devil Fruit and is able to fully control Gear Fifth, he should have no problem defeating a Marine Admiral. After all, Gear Fifth is the technique to defeat Kaido, but Luffy’s reaction at the end of chapter #1090 tells a different story. It would indeed be an interesting development if Kizaru proves to be the strongest opponent Luffy has faced so far. Recently, the Admirals have somewhat lost their mystique, but they are the original “big bad guys” of One Piece, considered one of the “Three Great Powers” of the world. After all, sooner or later the series has to introduce villains stronger than Kaido, or else it risks ruining its own stake, and Kizaru is the perfect candidate.
Fans who still remember the humiliation, helplessness and despair of the Straw Hats in Sabaody had been waiting for this rematch for fifteen years. Hopefully this battle will prove just how much the Star Hat has grown since that heartbreaking day. Kizaru’s arrival has certainly shaken the Straw Hat captain, and fans will soon see how the Admiral will stand up. Luffy‘s Gear 5, give A piece‘Strongest creature’, Kaido, in the ground forever.
