  • The upcoming chapter is titled “Straw Hat Luffy”
  • “One Piece” Chapter 1000 scans reveal more details about Luffy’s new attack

The latest set of “One Piece” Chapter 1000 raw scans explain the new one-hit attack Luffy used that knocked the strongest man on the planet down.

The new details about Monkey D. Luffy’s new attack are brought to light in “One Piece” Chapter 1000 raw scans. It was further explained by Overgrown_Rover in the manga’s subReddit. Contrasting earlier speculations, the name of the attack is GomoGomo no Red Roc.

Based on the explanation, the Red Roc is a more powerful version of Luffy’s Red Hawk attack. The term Red Hawk is allegedly derived from the bird of prey Hawk. The term Roc is inspired by the bigger and stronger mythical bird of prey of the same name.

“One Piece” Chapter 1000 Japanese raws reportedly use the same attack name. After his humiliating defeat against Kaido, Luffy vowed to get stronger. While in Udon Prison, Luffy used his time to improve his strength and buff his skills.

Thanks to Queen the Plague’s Somo Inferno match, the Straw Hats captain was able to test his power against his obstinate opponents. It was also during this period that he learned the Ryou, a new form of Haki that strong characters in the Land of Wano use. His friendship with Old Man Hyo inside the prison camp bears fruit and aside from gaining more allies, the former Yakuza boss taught him how to achieve the haki.

Luffy has indeed gotten stronger since his fight with Kaido. However, it is safe to say that his strength and power is further fueled by his desire to save his friends and his passion to defend the oppressed. Before he landed that powerful hit on Kaido, Luffy was talking to Kinemon, whose spirit was crushed following the Akazaya Nine’s defeat.

The leader of the Red Scabbards cried out to Luffy and asked him to shoulder their burdens and save the Land of Wano. The panel shows a furious Straw Hat telling Kinemon “Of course I will. It is the country of my friends.” The panel also shows images of Luffy’s friends all heartbroken, all in anguish because of Kaido. 

“One Piece” Chapter 1000 is titled ”Straw Hat Luffy.”
