Per creator Eiichiro Oda"s admission, romance và shipping are not huge focuses for One Piece. While the series may not thrive on the idea of "romance," that doesn"t mean that there aren"t signs. As the series has gone on, it teased some possible relationships between its main cast, especially for the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy.

This made a lot of sense for viewers, considering that most main characters have a possible afterword for their respective series" conclusion. Additionally, fans dreamed for years about who he would be spending those after years with. As of this writing, there are two consistent prospects for Luffy"s love life: the Pirate Empress, Boa Hancock, & the Straw Hats" navigator and resident mèo Burglar, Nami. Though it is currently unknown which of the two could be Luffy"s Pirate Queen, both have equal arguments for why they could over up with him romantically later on.

One easy thing that could help Boa Hancock stand alongside Luffy, in the end, is the pure fact that she has the strength to lớn stand alongside him during battle. Boa Hancock is from Amazon Lily, a community of Amazonian women whose leadership and social standings are based purely on strength.

As the island"s ruler, Boa Hancock is the strongest of them all, bolstering both the Love-Love Fruit và amazing Haki. If these two were to lớn get together, they"d be the ultimate power couple.


While Boa Hancock has a clear edge in power, Nami more than makes up for things with brains. People say that opposites attract & that typically means making up for the weaknesses of one"s significant other. Luffy has plenty of strength, but his greatest weakness has always been his brain. Nami, compared to him, is a scientist/world-class thief.

On a practical level, Nami has the street smarts necessary for maintaining a good lifestyle after Luffy becomes Pirate King. At a more macro level, Nami has academic knowledge that can more than compensate for Luffy"s real-world gaps.


Status may not mean a whole lot khổng lồ Luffy & the gang, but it can still give a slight edge to Boa Hancock. While Luffy pursued a career to become Pirate King, he also found himself within the current discussion of becoming an Emperor.

With that title in mind, aesthetic symmetry dictates that the Pirate Empress Boa would be his perfect match. Whether they"re coming together in name or just decide to combine their kingdoms in the future, it"s easy khổng lồ see Luffy & Boa comfortably sitting on twin thrones.


While Boa Hancock may sit as an Amazonian empress, her status does not mean much to Luffy, who openly dismisses any such authority. However, if there"s one figurehead that he can"t ignore, it"s the person truly running the show on the Thousand Sunny. Luffy runs the crew through conceptual input, simply saying "Yes" or "No" lớn general ideas for the adventure.

Nami comes in to make those plans happen, providing direct orders lớn every thành viên of the crew lớn get everyone, on & off the ship, headed in the right direction. While Luffy và Boa could be a power nguồn couple in the future, he & Nami are already one today.

One of the major things that had Boa Hancock fall for Luffy in the first place was discovering his assault on Saint Charloss. Adding on đứng đầu of his empirical selflessness, Boa Hancock found perhaps the one man in the world that she could finally trust, opening up an entire flood gate of emotions.

Luffy, on the other hand, has grown to hate nobles & spoiled people ever since he was just a child & can find a kinship with Boa Hancock because of it. Here"s to them overthrowing the corrupted regime together.

While there are some personal similarities between Luffy and Boa, the story of One Piece subtly established the idea that he và Nami are just meant khổng lồ be. Early in the series, Luffy & Nami happened to lock eyes after getting caught up in a pirate raid.

Since then, the series has provided plenty of screen time of the two being together, at least, in comparison khổng lồ the other Straw Hats. Whether it"s Arlong Park, Skypeia, or Punk Hazard, Luffy and Nami often find themselves together during an adventure.

Much lượt thích other Shonen Jump anime of its age, One Piece took a lot after the seminal battle series, Dragon Ball. This included everything from Akira Toriyama"s hunt for a MacGuffin khổng lồ the spirited & gluttonous main character.

Another similarity that the two series could nội dung could be having its main characters marry a warrior princess of a strange land. Goku began a lifelong relationship with Chi-Chi during Dragon Ball"s early years, và Luffy could reflect this with Boa Hancock.

Small age gaps are negligible when it comes khổng lồ shipping, but it"s a little steeper when it comes to lớn shipping Luffy & Boa. Boa Hancock is 31 in the story, twelve years older than Luffy"s 19.

On the other hand, Nami is just 20. It"s difficult to lớn gauge romances in anime by just using age difference, but Nami is closer lớn Luffy"s age group và that is certainly a relevant point to consider in terms of their compatibility.

While Nami may be a comrade on Luffy"s ship, Boa Hancock is a colleague of his as a pirate captain. To an extent, that means that these two vày share some ambition and history as leaders.

From an aesthetic point of view, this shows some kinship that Nami can only be a stranger unless she starts her crew after the series. If there was going to be a grand pirate empire in the future, it could be lead by these two experienced captains.

Nami has known Luffy longer, something Boa can"t compete with. Lớn be fair, Boa Hancock was close lớn Luffy over the time-skip, which is longer than Luffy"s adventure with the Straw Hats. However, much of that time had his training in isolation.

Meanwhile, Luffy has known Nami longer than most people in the crew. Additionally, Nami was one of the first people that he ever got to see after he first left his hometown. This means that these two shared plenty of adventures and tears, developing a deep relationship that would be hard for Boa Hancock lớn keep up with.

While there is a cấp độ of chemistry between Luffy và Nami, it leaned more towards friendship than it does romance. Neither Luffy nor Nami made any lãng mạn overtures khổng lồ each other in the manga or anime filler so far.

Meanwhile, Boa Hancock is head over heels for Luffy & makes no qualms about it. She even worries about falling under Love Sickness, an ailment she believed led to lớn the death of the other Empresses.

One of the downsides of being with Boa is she is too in love with Luffy. This resulted in her forgiving him of every single one of his faults. Nami, meanwhile, never hesitated lớn let Luffy know when he"s acting lượt thích an idiot.

Nami isn"t above strangling him for his idiocy. Though this is extreme, it is often necessary when Luffy"s thick-headedness is considered. Luffy would benefit from having someone willing to lớn help keep his impulses in check, even if he"d prefer a carefree life.

When Boa found out about Luffy"s history and namely his heritage, she didn"t bat an eyelash, believing fully in the man she knew. She did not even mind that he was the offspring of the world"s worst criminal, Monkey D. Dragon.

The actions of his father didn"t reflect on Luffy, nor did they wipe away all of the good Luffy had done. For someone lượt thích Boa, who is prone khổng lồ harboring grudges, particularly against men, her wiping the slate clean for Luffy is a big deal.

There"s something to be said in having the utmost faith in someone. While Boa has trust in Luffy as well, Nami"s is on a different level. Boa is capable of handling herself in a fight, while Nami often has to believe in Luffy"s skill lớn keep her safe.

That sort of trust does not come easily, especially with how often Nami scolds Luffy. However, she did show her faith in him on several occasions. A few examples are when they were going up the beanstalk together or that she often screams his name when she"s in trouble.
