    i think german and spanish versions of OP use "ruffy", so of course people will continue to use it, that's no big deal as soon as everyone understands who we are talking about ....

    this said, i doubt putting air somewhere in his body will make luffy smart.... gear 2 can accelerate his reasoning but it has some limits ^^"

    basic chemistry, oxygen reacts with hemoglobin to travel around in blood, this reduces the effects of fatigue. ever wonder why with big breathes after a hard run you feel better alot faster? more oxygen, more carbon dioxide being released = overall increase in bodily functions. it doesnt mean a decrease in speed is an increase in strength. oxygen has got nothing to do with strength.

    now, luffy's giant arm. it's just air pumped into his arms, and his arms becoming FUCKING HUGE. now, we saw the cow/wolf/cat ugly lucci thing go flying. this was possibly due to the fist, now being larger, impacts upon a larger surface area in which luffy's punch strength can more easily effect. before, lucci would use tekkai to force his body to harden at the point of impact, this fist impacts everywhere, and cause its also bigger, he goes flying.

    no stfu if u htink im wrong.

    Well think of it like Steriods. A steriod that only luffy can produce within in own body~ XD

    I find it ironic that our efforts, to figure out the Gears, end up making us look like fools. I think it's because we focus so much on the detail and think little step by little step, that we miss the big picture in general. Gear 2 used to be various speculations from vulcanization to <insert a big theory that's not vulcanization | sorry I forgot >. Gear 3 was pretty much a mess of big wild guesses ranging from air pressure to super elastic compression.

    As it turns out, despite whatever detailed explanations that pop up now, Gear 2 is just, in essence, Luffy's blood being pumped very fast, and Gear 3 is just inflated body parts. This stuff could be figured out by preschoolers, but we waste our time and efforts trying to piece together something that can be explained in 1 or 2 steps. Okay, more detail makes a better explanation, but we would have to put significantly more effort to get insignificant amounts of clarity.

    Actually, I forgot whether the debate was really huge on this forum. Maybe not.

    yeah, i was kinda disappointed with the explination of luffy's gear 2, but I thought the explination of gear 3 was awesome, very Luffy like.

    to be honest, I'm not really impressed with "super giant arm" G3, like somebody already said, it's a bit warner bros

    and seem to me Luchi not really got hurt by the punch, well he is thrown out for sure, dunno if he fall or he will jump

    but I'm not think the "super giant arm" its the only trick that G3 can do, i gonna wait what else luffy will use in the nextr chapter

    first, it's not that g3 meaks luffy small it perspective to the arm. remember: "A GIANT ARM", look back and see what is the size of people to the arms of oimo and his brother, very small. therefore if luffy's hand becomes a giant hand he will be very small next to it.

    second, i forgot what i wanted to say here "--
