One Piece Luffy may not be one of the more complex anime characters, but that has done nothing to stop him from becoming a part of the popular culture. He is a great leader and fighter who can also make anyone laugh with his silly antics. A great hero for many generations.
Luffy was selected as the most popular male character from the “Weekly Shonen Jump” magazine, and also won first place in the American shōnen jump character popularity poll. In addition to this, he came in first place twice in Animage magazine’s Anime Grand Prix’ awards category for favorite anime hero.
Luffy is a young pirate who dreams of finding the One Piece, a large treasure said to be buried somewhere in the sea. His given name is “Monkey,” but he goes by the moniker “Straw Hat” because he aways wear a straw hat. Luffy, often known as Straw Hat, is the main protagonist of One Piece manga and anime.
He is the captain and founder of the notorious Straw Hat Pirates, as well as one of its most powerful fighters. His lifelong ambition was to become Pirate King by finding the legendary treasure left behind by Gol D. Roger, who had formerly been regarded as “the Strongest in the World.” He feels that being The Pirate King entails having complete freedom.
