Over the decades, Luffy went from a would-be pirate that could throw a punch or two here and there with his stretchy limbs blessed to him thanks to a Devil Fruit to one of the strongest pirates sailing the Grand Line today. While in Wano Country however, Monkey has needed to go through some extreme training in order to prep him for the eventual showdown that he will have the leader of the Beast Pirates, Kaido. To bolster himself before taking on this giant threat, Luffy has completed his intense training to attempt to conquer the forces of Wano.
Since arriving on the shores of Wano Country, Luffy has gone from one fight to another. Squaring off against the likes of Hawkins, Bat-Man, King, Queen, and Jack, the leader of the Straw Hat Pirates has faced down death numerous times while in this isolationist nation. With Kaido however, it will clearly be one of the biggest fights of his life as seemingly no one has managed to injure the captain of the Beast Pirates outside of using the legendary sword, Enma.
To bolster his fists against Kaido, Luffy has been punching a slab of steel none stop since recovering from the biological weapon injected into his system during his previous fights with the Beast Pirates. Having completed his training, Monkey tests out his new punch and completely decimates a nearby tree and continues making giant dents in the side of the steel slab.
With the second act of the Wano Arc coming to an end, the Straw Hat Pirates have managed to bolster their collective strength, getting them seriously prepared for the upcoming war. With Kaido and his Beast Pirates managing to strike a truce with Big Mom and her crew, this upcoming clash is going to be one of the biggest altercations that we've ever seen during Eiichiro Oda's epic pirate franchise.
What did you think of the training that Luffy went through during the Wano Country Arc? Will it be enough for him to defeat Kaido and his forces?
