Character Discussion Luffy & Zoro Parallels All Throughout One Piece

Another Parallel is that both their Arsenals can be Split into Speed-Based Techniques and Strength-Based Ones

Luffy had Gear 2/3 and then Boundman/Snakeman and against Kaido he buffed his Strength, I expect we will see Fast Gear 5 next. As for Zoro he uses both Strong Blade and Gentle Blade

I don't think G5 will have different forms for strength and speed since it's supposed to be the peak. Luffy will master it more and combine his haki with it, but other forms would be redundant imo

I didnt say form, just Techniques

Against Kaido, Luffy mostly buffed his Strength such as becoming a Giant or tossing Kaido or around or that final Attack

I believe in next fight, he will show off how fast can Gear 5 go

Sorry, I based my response on you using G2/G3 and Boundman/Snakeman in the bottom paragraph, which are different forms
 
It would be a good showcase for the speed version of G5. Do you think it could happen in Egghead?
Possible, but imo this Arc gonna be huge lore dump and then a Plot Twist happens where Elbaf Attack the Island

Imo reason Gorosei were against Nika Poster is cuz it will make Elbaf Kingdom descend and get involved, Sun God is part of their History

I expect Luffy and Zoro to be captured, one is taken to Mary Geoise where he fights Kizaru (Either by Smoker or Fuji or Ryo or Lucci ... etc) and Zoro is sent to Impel Down

I'm 200% certain about Zoro vs Magellan Fight, no matter what anyone says, and just like King of Hells are gonna fight, I believe Sun Duo will fight too (Luffy vs Kizaru)

Which makes me also believe Lucci's Opponent gonna be Sanji since they are both inspired from Power Rangers Design Wise

Basically Monster Trio vs WG Greatest Powers
An Admiral, Legendary Impel Down Warden and Legendary CP-0 Commander

This will make the World recognize them as Monster Trio, not just within Crew
 
This is my most Ambitious Post. But my main point is to those that deny Luffy and Zoro do not have significant parallels within the story and that Roronoa Zoro is simply just an Underling of Luffy.

EOS Zoro and Luffy will tottally be comparable.
 
Both quality-wise and quantity-wise, both feat-wise and portrayal-wise
No character as has much parallels with Luffy as much as Zoro does



I might try making something like this with the other Strawhats when I reread One Piece
Post automatically merged:

I feel like the easiest duos to do this with would be Zoro/Luffy, Zoro/Sanji, Nami/Luffy, Nami/Usopp, and maybe Luffy/Sanji, Luffy/Usopp, Sanji/Nami, and Luffy/Chopper. And also Nami/Robin, Robin/Chopper, Robin/Franky, and maybe Robin/Brook

Gonna try to get as many duos like this as I can
