In 2021, the battle in Onigashima in One Piece continues to take place very fiercely. Many of Kaido’s subordinates fell, some were defeated by the Straw Hats, some were defeated by the allies.
And during the battles that took place in Onigashima, some members of the Straw Hats showed their strength greatly increased.
1. Monkey D. Luffy: Add Conqueror Haki to attacks
In chapter 1010, Luffy realizes the secret of Kaido’s power. Kaido can add Conqueror Haki to his attacks. Kaido says only a few people can do it, but Luffy then shows he can do the same.
In chapter 1026, Luffy and Kaido’s collision also splits the sky, just like when Kaido fought Big Mom, or Whitebeard against Shanks. This shows that Luffy seems to have reached, or at least reached the level of Yonko.
2. Roronoa Zoro: deploys Conqueror Haki and unleashes it on attacks, Zoro can also cut fire techniques
In chapter 1010, Zoro unconsciously coated his sword with Conqueror Haki to attack Kaido. In fact, at that time, Kaido was the first to realize that Zoro’s attack was combined with Conqueror Haki and Zoro was unaware. Because at first Zoro didn’t even know he had that rare type of Haki.
In chapter 1033, Zoro let Enma unleash his Haki massively. This caused Zoro’s Conqueror Haki to take down many of Kaido’s men who wanted to interfere in his fight with King. Zoro’s sword after that “incident” was also covered with a layer of Conqueror Haki.
Besides Haki, Zoro also shows that since chapter 1001 (released in Japan January 18, 2021), he has been able to imitate Kin’emon’s fire cutting technique when he can cut through Prometheus.
3. Sanji: super healing ability and body is hard to damage, has new technique Ifrit Jambe
Starting from chapter 1028 (released in Japan on October 11, 2021), the power of Germa 66 in Sanji’s body finally awakens. His bones heal quickly after being crushed by Queen. His skin is so hard that ordinary swords can break when slashed at him, and bullets can’t penetrate him even though Sanji doesn’t use Busoshoku Haki.
Before Sanji’s genetic code was awakened, he also mastered Busoshoku Haki. So when he covered his enhanced legs with Busoshoku Haki, a new technique was born, called Ifrit Jambe.
Ifrit Jambe is a completely new technique that appeared in chapter 1034 of the One Piece manga, this can be seen as a much more powerful upgraded version than Diable Jambe. With the combination of super strength, super speed, the rigidity of the exoskeleton as well as armed Haki, Sanji has created a new skill with a stronger flame and extremely destructive power.
4. Nami: Clima-tact Powered By Zeus
Nami’s Clima-Tact has now been enhanced by Zeus to all of its abilities. Previously, Nami’s Clima-Tact had the ability to zoom in and out thanks to Usopp’s improved Pop Green ability, which was convenient for Nami to carry around, now this ability has been upgraded by Zeus to be able to transform. into any shape, such as a spiked club.
Especially perhaps after being buffed by Zeus, Nami herself will definitely develop new potential combat skills much more than the current one. For example, Nami can develop some more destructive moves based on natural disasters, such as tornado, lava, wind blade, blizzard, etc.
5. Nico Robin: Demonio Fleur, and revealed to have learned Fish-Man Karate
Nico Robin was nicknamed “Devil’s Child” and it turns out that she actually has this form. The female archeologist of the Straw Hats deployed it in chapter 1021 (released in Japan August 10, 2021). Her form became large, with horns, fangs, and the wings of a demon. In this form, Robin can defeat Black Maria.
Before that, Robin also revealed to have learned Fish-Man Karate from Koala. It is also revealed in Robin’s flashback that she has been secretly using this Fish-Man Karate technique for a long time.
6. Tony Tony Chopper was able to increase the duration of Monster Points
In chapter 1014 (released May 31, 2021), it is revealed that Tony Tony Chopper has actually increased the amount of time using the Monster Point form.
Originally, the duration of using Monster Point was only three minutes, but in Chopper’s flashback in chapter 1014, it is shown that after receiving help from Caesar Clown, Tony Tony Chopper was able to use the Monster Point state to the fullest. 30 minutes, but it also comes with some risks for Rumble Ball users.
Specifically, after using up the time, Chopper was turned into Baby Chopper’s Grandpa as a side effect. This form is more or less similar to Brain Point or the regular Hybrid Chopper form, but smaller and weaker. In this form, Chopper talks like an old man, despite his body like a newborn baby. And it’s currently unclear how long it will take Chopper to return to his original form.
