[Theory] One Piece – Luffy’s Love For Snow

Leave a comment

One Piece chapter 733 - Yuki-Onna?

The Strawhat Pirates take a break in the snow

Throughout One Piece Luffy has come across many things which excite and mesmerize him, some of which he has repeatedly mentioned wanting. For the most part, he has gotten what he wants, such as a navigator, a cook, a doctor, beams, a robot, a skeleton, a musician. But there are still two things Luffy currently doesn’t have which he has repeatedly shown excitement for throughout the One Piece manga (well three if you include meat when it runs out). Those two things are a giant [bronze] statue and snow.

Luffy had began to illustrate his excitement over snow from chapter 106 when he was first seeing building a snowman (after the crew set-off from Reverse Mountain):

One Piece chapter 106 - Luffy builds a snowman 1 One Piece chapter 106 - Luffy jealous of Usopp's Snow Queen

Just before the crew reached Little Garden, Luffy wonders if it will snow again (chapter 115):

One Piece chapter 115 - Luffy wants more snow

Luffy’s excitement over snow brings him to tears as the crew reaches Drum Island in chapter 132:

One Piece chapter 132 - Luffy excited at the Snow Island 1 One Piece chapter 132 - Luffy excited at the Snow Island 2

In the very next chapter, Luffy and Usopp are shown wasting no time making new snowman/monsters:

One Piece chapter 133 - Luffy and Usopp build a snowman and snowzilla

After Luffy triumphants over Crocodile and helps the Vivi save Alabasta, Luffy is shown thinking about snow again once they depart (chapter 218):

One Piece chapter 218 - Luffy wants to visit another snow island

Luffy once again displayed his excitement for snow the moment he realised that Punk Hazard had a snow side (chapter 657) and when he attempted to cross the lake:

One Piece chapter 657 - Luffy excited at the snow on Punk Hazard 1 One Piece chapter 659 - Luffy excited at the snow on Punk Hazard 2

It may have been an incredible coincidence, but in the moment Luffy realised how cool Punk Hazard was seeing the snow, Monet, the Yuki-Onna, showed up. One of the reasons I am so fixated on Monet’s character is because she is a Snow Logia user and Luffy during his encounter with Monet had seemed to fail in recognising Monet as a Snow Woman – how he wondered what her ability was.

For Oda to repeatedly make Luffy express how much he loves snow throughout the One Piece manga, and then to have a character who is able to control snow show up only to have them “die” in the same arc, I honestly don’t believe Oda would do such a thing. There must be more Oda has planned for Monet seeing that she is a Devil Fruit user who can control snow, something which Luffy loves a lot. Luffy when encountering Monet was likely too tunnel-visioned (being focused on Caesar) and probably didn’t realise that Monet was a snow user. If Oda wanted, he could so easily have Luffy invite/accept Monet into the crew.

(Yay 500th post).

There’s Something About Monet (Nakama Theory):

>>Monet’s loyalty to Doflamingo

>>How will Monet become relevant to the story?
