    As much as I'd like to wait until the official translation from Viz, that's not going to be for another week iirc, I believe this coming week is officially off and the chapter is supposed to come out on the 7th, but I might be mistaken. So for now, we have Jbox and Shitstream's translations to base shit off of.

    So, with that being said, is Luffy now officially an emperor? Or is it just sensationalism from Morgans?

    Here are the facts: An emperor isn't an official title earned or transferred. It's based on the perception of the people.

    The World Economic Times, Big News Morgans' paper, is one of the most popular and respected news sources in the OPVerse

    The article on Luffy was read by numerous important people including the yonko and Sakazuki, so you can infer everyone at Mariejois, the RA, the supernovas, and the shichibukai have read the news.


    So should Luffy be officially be recognized as an emperor? Or is it sensational stuff that we see from even respected newspapers and should be taken with a grain of salt? Or does it even matter if it's sensationalized, that millions of people, including high ranking people, have read the article, and we should expect Luffy to be referred to as an emperor? Luffy has islands under his protection, he has a large fleet including several people with very large bounties, he, himself, has a very large bounty, and he has numerous feats and the background to support the idea.

    I'm sure we'll be getting answers in the coming chapters, especially with the Reverie, but I think it's interesting enough to discuss now.

    There’s a chapter that’s literally called Luffy Died. Chapter titles can be sensationalized.

    I do think that he'll be considered the 5th Emperor going forward, but it's 100% certain that Luffy won't want anything to do with that title.

    However, just like when he gained the Strawhat Grand Fleet, he'll have no choice in the matter and the title will stick

    Pretty much this. If all the Islands Luffy has saved decided to throw up his flag, he'd officially have an army and major territory. May as well be recognized as an emperor.

    As much as people may not like it on here, he's pretty much regarded as an Emperor by the vast majority of the OP population so he is one. That's all that matters tbh.

    The title of Emperor is based on reputation and influence.

    If the world refers to Luffy as the 5th Emperor then he's the 5th Emperor. It's a simple as that.

    Yeah, he's not as strong as one but he's clearly getting a ton of allies and support at this point and is an extremely powerful pirate.

    Yeah he's one, you don't need to be on the level of an emperor to have the title but i think they are watering down too much.

    Look at all the shit the other yonkou's went through to get that title.

    Not to mention blackbeard, he had to royally fuck the WB remnants before people started calling him emperor while taking all of WB's previous territories.

    Now luffy gets recongition by being a brave soul.


    It's like when they give trophies to all fuckers that compete instead of the top three.

    Well he's pretty much met all the requirements of being one with the only real exception at the moment being he lacks the overwhelming power the other four have at the moment, but even then he is at least comparable to their first mates which still puts him as at least top 20 in terms of power at the moment.

    I think it's been like a month. But if you look at the public's perception of him, it's kinda crazy what Luffy & Co. have done in a month.

    He's a Yonkou in the same sense as Buggy is a Warlord. The amount of manpower Luffy can potentially call is greater than almost any pirate force in the world. That combined with him surviving Big Mom and escaping without a loss (according to Morgans) combined with supposedly completing his objective means that he deserves the title. But he lacks the personal strength to truly back up his status, just like Buggy. Reverie is probably going to solve the Territory problem if things go the way I think they will.

    Even so, I don't think he's a full on Yonkou/Gokou yet. This is a in name thing; he'll grow into his status in the next few arcs and surpass it.

    This is just Morgan’s hyping him up. He will legit become a Yonko when the marines and the other Yonko acknowledge him

    Yonkou fans like: "He is not on the level of them and still got a long way to go", Morgans like: "Bitch, please".

    Especially Shanks fans that still think he defeats all 3 Admirals on his own are on suicide watch.

    Yes, I believe so but in terms of power not yet but reputation yeah an emperor caliber indeed... Morgan really did help him become one that fake news though maybe the other pirates considered him one at least after reading the newspaper but the Yonko themselves not yet.

    Been more than a month, i thought more like 2 or three months. I think he means from Zou to now has been a week but I think its been more than that. Just getting from zou to bog moms territory probably took two or three days. Took another day to reach wci, luffy fought like 11 hours so it reached the next day. From cracker to the wedding was another day or 2 then that day to Katakuris defeat was a day and now currently it has been a day or two. But I will say its been atleast 2 weeks since dressrosa but Luffy was in the newspapers after leaving shabondy and he rested 3-5 days on Dressrosa.

    How do we know that the general populace regards him as an emperor though? As far as I know, no-one has referred to him as one yet.

    Well Luffy is already in the battle for territories as well. I recall Bartolomeo burning Shanks flag and placing a straw hat flag there. Clearly Luffy will be gaining more than just Fishman Island since Shanks apparently has done nothing about this outrage. Luffy is Goko confirmed; can't call them yonko anymore if there are 5 of them :whistle

    Luffy is pretty much an emperor, he got everything bar the strength. And his influence is only going to rise during Reverie.

    It's worth to note though that while the general public seems to acknowledge him as the 5th emperor now, that the other emperors don't seem to recognize him as one of them just yet. BB in particular was very frank about it, literally saying he isn't ready to be one yet.

    I'm going to say no, it's just hyperbole from morgans to hype up luffy (who is one of his main candidates for pirate king).

    I think he is getting close because of the crews under him but i think it's the yonko for a reason, he will have to actually take out one to be an emperor or Dragon would have been considered one(even if he doesn't consider himself a pirate)

    He has enough territory and allies to be considered a Yonko.
