Luffy’s Gear is incredibly powerful and unstoppable. He has defeated a Yonko and effortlessly toyed with a CP0 agent with his abilities. It can be said that it is similar to Jerry from Tom and Jerry, allowing him to manipulate situations in his favor no matter what challenges he faces.

Initially, people believed that Luffy’s transformation into Joy Boy was a unique occurrence. It was seen as a way for him to combat the terrible actions of Kaido and Orochi. And to rescue the oppressed and enslaved people of Wano after two decades of suffering.

But in Chapter 1070, it is revealed that Luffy can not only activate Gear 5 whenever he wants, but he can also do so without facing any significant drawbacks or disadvantages.

Is there any major disadvantage to using Gear 5?

Yes, there is. When it comes to Gear 2, 3, and 4, Luffy’s main limitations are that he rapidly loses stamina and becomes exhausted. Even to a point where it’s difficult for him to continue fighting.


Although it’s important to remain cautious until there is official confirmation. Still, fans can’t help but imagine the exciting possibilities that could arise from a collaboration between the talented animators from Toei and WB.
