One Piece: Will Luffy Marry Hancock or Nami? Or Someone else?

One Piece creator, Eiichiro Oda, has admitted that romance is not a huge focus or part of the series. Still, that doesn’t mean that there are no signs of it.

Monkey D. Luffy’s true love has always been meat. This has been consistent throughout the ongoing series.

As the series progress, it has teased some possible relationships for Luffy to have. There is a possibility of Luffy ending up with Boa Hancock, Nami, Vivi, or Robin. Yet, knowing how Luffy is he probably will just decide in the blink of an eye, like he always does.

1. Will Luffy End up with Hancock?

Boa Hancock, the Pirate Empress initially has an antagonistic relationship with Luffy.

After witnessing his selfless nature and noticing that he did not judge her even after knowing of her past, she develops strong romantic feelings for him. She openly confesses her feelings for Luffy and proposes to marry him.

Hancock’s love for Luffy even caused her to turn against the World Government on several occasions. Hancock is very loyal to Luffy despite him rejecting her proposal.

Luffy has straight out rejected Boa Hancock’s initial proposal. This can be chalked up to the fact that Luffy has no interest in romance as of this moment.

Yet, Luffy marrying Hancock is a likelihood once he fulfills his goal, just like Gol D. Roger did. The pair of a Pirate King and a Pirate Empress is nothing but a perfect One Piece ship.

Luffy has no interest in romance but he does love food and from the start, Hancock is shown to understand it perfectly well. Since the earlier times, Hancock has taken great care of Luffy’s appetite. During the two-year time skip, she learns to cook and becomes skilled in cooking meat which is Luffy’s favorite dish.

One easy thing that could help Boa Hancock stand alongside Luffy is that she has the strength to stand alongside him during battle.

She is a pirate, and in a way, a colleague of Luffy’s. They share similar ambitions and history as leaders of their respective crews.

Another important factor is that One Piece creator admires and took a lot of inspiration from Dragon Ball. This includes everything from Akira Toriyama’s hunt for a MacGuffin to the spirited and gluttonous main character.

Due to this, the chances are high that One Piece might follow after Dragon Ball by having its main character marry a warrior princess of a strange land such as Boa Hancock.

2. Will Luffy End up with Nami?

Opposite attracts and that may be the case for Luffy and Nami. Luffy is all strength with no brains, while Nami with the brains but no strength like Luffy.

Luffy saves all his Nakama, but when it comes to saving Nami there is a small distinction. Nami and Robin’s stories are very similar in the way they were constructed. Both became part of the crew provisionally and both decide to leave the crew.

When Robin leaves, after being with the crew for some time, Luffy does not chase her right away. He decides to follow her and save her after knowing the reasons why she left.

Yet, when it comes to saving Nami from Arlong, Luffy doesn’t want to know why she decided to leave. He just wants to save her without any reason.

Moreover, Luffy says “I don’t want to sail without her.” Why does Luffy who has the ambition to become a Pirate King, say something like that concerning a thief who has already betrayed and deceived him many times?

Luffy has never expressed this type of thought with anyone of his crew. He would leave without Usopp if his friends had not brought his apologies and asked to return. He would also never saved Robin, if he had not found out why she had decided to leave.

Nami is also one of the few people Luffy entrusts his treasure, the “Straw Hat” to. That just shows the amount of trust Luffy has in Nami.

Luffy ending up with Nami is very likely. The way he goes the extra mile for Nami and also how Nami punches hurt our rubber man might be a hint to this pair. Nevertheless, Luffy perhaps just wants Nami as part of the Straw Hat crew, she being the navigator.

3. Will Luffy End up with Vivi?

Nefertari Vivi is a princess of the Alabasta Kingdom and a former member of the Straw Hat Pirates. She and Luffy are close friends, despite having started as enemies.

Even though she is often amazed by his laid-back attitude and recklessness, she completely trusts him.

She is extremely grateful for his help and desires to follow him on his journey to true freedom despite her duties as a princess.

Luffy sees Vivi as a kind person and wishes to help her. Regardless, he also thinks of her as naive and is reluctant to continue helping her at one point until she understood his reasoning.

Nonetheless, he cares a lot for her and was filled with disappointment when she did not join his crew.

The relationship between them is one of mutual respect and friendship. The chances of Luffy and Vivi ending up together are close to none.

4. Will Luffy end up with Robin?

Nico Robin is the sixth member to join Luffy’s crew and the second Devil Fruit user. Luffy and Robin get along extremely well with each other despite their infrequent conversations.

Robin is very grateful to Luffy for having saved her life twice. Due to her past, she struggled to find a place she could call home until she met Luffy and joined his crew.

Luffy cares for Robin a lot and does not tolerate anyone hurting her. He has faith in her abilities and trusts her completely.

Robin’s relationship with Luffy can best be described as motherly, as out of all the crew members, she is by far the most patient and calm with him. In conclusion, despite their close relationship, there is no chance of Luffy and Robin ending up together.

5. Who will Luffy marry?

One Piece is mainly focused on Luffy’s journey towards becoming the Pirate King. So romance may take a back seat for now.

Looking at popular shonen like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto, the main lead ended up with the female character who has chased him the longest with one-sided love. The possibility of Luffy having a similar end cannot be overlooked.

Right now, Boa Hancock, the Pirate Empress, is one of the main prospects for his love life. Other than Hancock, no other woman has openly declared her love for Luffy.

While Luffy has rejected her proposal, chances are that they might get together once he fulfills his goal. Luffy might follow the previous Pirate King footsteps when it comes to love life.

6. How will marriage affect Luffy?

Luffy is someone who desires true freedom. This desire of his is what led to him wanting to become the Pirate King.

After fulfilling this goal of his, Luffy might get married and even father a child, just like the previous Pirate King did. Only time will tell whether he will be a good father or not.

It might even act as a shackle to the man who loves adventure and the sea. When it comes to Luffy nothing is planned, he just goes with what he feels right to do at that moment. As such, he might bring his family along with the Straw Hats to travel across the world. Raising a kid while traveling might just become another goal of his after fulfilling his current goal to become the Private King.

All we can do now is to wait for Luffy to continue his story and hope that he pleasantly surprises us once again.

7. About One Piece

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.

The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!

Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
