    Garp is strong. He can easily punch a whole through a wall, he can get past all the people in the room around luffy and land a good blow, and don't forget about all the stuff in the mini-arc. i can believe that he cornered gold roger based on what we've seen him do so far.:nod

    Yeah, he appears pretty powerful. And he's pretty high on the Navy Rank list also.

    I can't wait to see what he can show us.

    He fell alseep after he was slashed by Morgan. Though wasn't it because of trying to beat some "amount of doughnuts eaten before falling asleep" record at the time? Or that might have been filler.

    ^ It was a side story. I haven't read the Garp part in so long, I can't remember half the stuff that happened. I'm going to have to go back and re-read it to see what all hapened.

    I wonder how long Oda has this planned out...

    Garp only got slashed by Morgan because he fell asleep due to staying up for days trying to beat the his own doghnut eating record. And he didn't even feeel it when he woke up. It's like one of those 4 mm cuts you get that you don't notice until someone points it out.

    Yes, he's strong, but punching down a wall means nothing. Luffy's been doing that as far back as at least the Arlong arc.

    Yaeh, I'm also think he's powerful, but like Masaki said, lots of characters can punch threw a wall easy.

    He can probably regenerate and has superhuman strength/speed.

    I dont see how I missed the relationship between Garp, Ace, and Luffy in the first place really...

    1. I mean He's not really all that bright, much like Luffy.

    2. Destructive like Luffy.

    3. He tends to fall asleep while eating and at inappropriate times, much like Ace and at times Luffy(Like falling asleep in the middle of the street in the Arlong arc).

    4. He likes to eat.....alot and can eat alot, much like Luffy.

    5. And I can see some sort of resembelance, but thats just me.


    and on another note thats been stated already..

    He eerily resembles Luffy's Gramp's on an early draft of One Piece.


    How do we over look such things? Imo we spend to much time trying to figure out the "D." and less time paying attention to way more simple things and writing them off as nothing significant lol.

    It's simple, he has only appeared in a cover story, so nobody thought he was much of an important character.

    HA! 4Kids cut out that mini arc!

    Maybe Garp (sp?) has super strength.

    If so, we already have three of the Fantastic Four. We just need an invisible woman.

    Eh, I hope Garp has a better ability than strength. Luffy can stretch like rubber and he's pretty damn strong, such as in the Kuro arc when he lifted part of that ship and a boulder. Maybe this is just a hint that Garp has a DF but is yet to be revealed as to what it is.

    Obviously he's physically strong, but everyone in the family has been so far, but I do think the reason it hurt is exactly what he said - it was the fist of love! He loves Luffy so much that he can hurt him!

    So perhaps his ability is to be able to hurt anyone, be they made of rubber or made of fire, similar to the way that Zoro can control whether his swords cut something or not.

    ^ Heh, I just re-read your post and seen "be it fire" part. I was really just scanning over your post the first time, so I didn't see that part. Hehah. So I basically said what you said again. ^_^

    Although how a punch could hurt anyone seems strange. But it's One Piece, so anythings possible.

    No stranger than being able to choose not to cut a leaf or piece of paper with your extremely sharp sword.

    I take cover stories to heart, There Canon imo. it introduced Hina, and showed how Jango and Fullbody got to be a part of her crew. It explains there brief reoccurance in the Alabasta arc without leaving you saying "Wtf did I just see Jango on the Grand Line?".

    I think the fact the punch hurt was just for comedict effects. It's a manga rule that extremely strong people can be hurt by punchs if it was a comedy scene. I think even Nami has given Luffy a sore head in the past.

    But yeah, I think Garp has to be extremely strong, and certainly doesn't seem to be just hype from what we've seen.

    I'm hoping he is just strong of his own accord and doesn't rely on a DF power, that'd be more impressive. Unless he has a really awsome DF power, then I wouldn't mind.

    i was more impressed that Garp was able to get past the entire crew and hit luffy in the head before any of them could react than that the punch hurt luffy.

    I mean, the crew is now pretty rested up for the most part and should be automatically on guard anytime they see a marine, let alone one who barges in and smashes the door open, but Garp moved past them like they weren't even there :/

    Difference is that comedy violence isn't normally remarked upon by other characters (unless the serious is pure comedy, of course). Sanji was shocked by the punch hurting him, which certainly indicates that it wasn't just for comedic effect.

    And Luffy can be hurt by a sufficiently powerful punch, we've seen it before. Foxy's individual punches couldn't hurt Luffy, but the combined power of lots of his punches, using his DF power, could. And Impact/Reject/Lucchi's super move are all basically the same thing as that, and they've all hurt Luffy.
