In the latest episode of One Piece Chapter 1048, we get to witness Kaido’s latest attack which was mind-blowing. The last episode made it pretty clear that Luffy will finish this fight with Kaido.
His giant fist is so huge that Momonosuke has to move Onigashima out of the way. And it is well known to us that Kaido isn’t one to give up or lose so easily. He may be running low on energy but there are still chances for him to lash out at Luffy.
The latest episode of One Piece Chapter 1048 is mainstreamed with Luffy versus Kaido. Viewers will also get to witness a powerful clash between their Haki. Even though the nature of Luffy’s Gear Fifth is overpowered, Kaido is still pushing the Straw Hat past his limits. The final attacks will be the deciding factors for determining the entire outcome of this fight.
The previous chapter of One Piece entirely consisted of flashbacks, we could also witness that Luffy covered the sky of the capital with his fist. With these incidents coming around, every fan is now excited for the release of the upcoming episode 1048. After a long break, one piece is finally back with its next chapter this week.
One Piece Chapter 1048 reveals that Kaido’s newest form is extremely hot. His body temperature can even melt the remaining Onigashima horn like it was nothing. Kaido then launches Shoryu: Kaen Hakke, where he opens his mouth and causes a gigantic shockwave.
Luffy uses a new move called Gomu Gomu no Bajrang Gun, which roughly translates to Monkey God Gun. Both these attacks are so powerful that Luffy and Kaido cannot touch each other. Most notably, Luffy has to close his eyes during the massive shockwave, even putting his arms up in self-defense.
Monkey D. Luffy always begins his attacks by saying “Gomu Gomu no…” and finishes with an attack-specific word, either in Japanese or English, such as Gatling or Yari. The majority of them are named after guns and various other firearms. This naming pattern originates from the claim that Luffy made to Shanks that his fist is as strong as pistol fire. Other known attacks were named after various other aspects such as physical objects to mental stupidity.
In the VIZ manga, all of Luffy’s Devil Fruit-based attacks begin with Gum-Gum instead of Gomu Gomu. In the 4Kids dub, Luffy’s attacks also begin with Gum-Gum. However, the gun references are completely renamed for censorship reasons. In the Funimation dub, they begin with Gum-Gum and the gun references are kept in. The Odex dub is often translated as “Gomu”, making attacks begin with “Rubber” for the first 56 episodes and “Rubber Rubber” for 57 and up.
Oars were also able to utilize some of these techniques while under the effect of Moria’s Kage Kakumei technique.
To put this into perspective, this is the same Luffy that used Kaido’s dragon form as a jump rope. Gear Fifth might be extremely potent, yet the world’s strongest creature is just as powerful. One Piece Chapter 1048 ends with both competitors right near each other.
