Favorite Goofy Character (Monkey D. Luffy)

Luffy is the ultimate goof. He’s typical like many shonen anime characters, for example, he loves food. Luffy is simple-minded, some might say dumb. This simpleness leaves Luffy with an innocent heart. When he finds something too complicated to understand, he will call it a “mystery thing.” This leads him to ask silly questions. A running gag in One Piece is when Luffy encounters non-human species, he asks them “if they poop.” His naïve comments can cause misunderstandings. During the battle, his opponents often mistake his questions for insults and become enraged. In battle, he can unwittingly poke fun at his enemies. For example, he calls Buggy “big nose,” Alvida “the fat lady,” and Kureha “old hag”. Luffy’s goofy side only subsides when someone is in danger.

Luffy will forget people he’s encountered, or he only remembers them from the humiliating situations they were in. Another running gag is his ability to notice things with little resemblance (like Sanji and his wanted poster image). However, he can’t see similarities when they’re more obvious (like the fact that Sogeking is Usopp). Overall, Monkey D. Luffy’s goofiness is only part of his personality. He possesses confidence, a righteous heart, compassion, and other excellent qualities.

  1. Yeah Luffys definitely a blast! He knows when to get serious too of course but he always keeps the team really focused. Typically I’m more a fan of the really serious characters like Sanji or Sasuke but it’s always good to have contrast on the team
