Why Luffy’s bounty is only 3 billion Berries in One Piece, should it be even higher?
Luffy’s new bounty has finally been revealed, which is 3 billion Beri! But why is it still lower than the Yonko Kaido? Isn’t Luffy the one who defeated him?
Why did his new bounty only increase like that? Let’s see the speculations in the following One Piece article!
1. Luffy didn’t really defeat Yonko Kaido alone
If people read from the beginning to now, they will surely know that Luffy didn’t really defeat Yonko Kaido alone. He took enough damage from the attacks of the Nine Red Baos and members of the Worst Generation on the roof, before Luffy fought Kaido alone at the end.
In addition, when fighting on the roof of Onigashima Devil Island alone, Luffy lost 2 times, so in my opinion, the new bounty of 3 billion Beri is also quite suitable for him.
2. Luffy, Law and Kid’s bounty is more than Big Mom’s bounty with Kaido
Maybe people don’t know, the total bounty of Luffy, Law and Kid (9 billion Beri) is actually slightly larger than the total bounty of the two Yonko, Big Mom and Kaido (8,999,100,000 Beri). . Since Big Mom and Kaido’s defeat was essentially the result of the joint efforts of Luffy, Kid, and Law’s crew, part of the Worst Generation, perhaps the three’s new bounty. character is calculated that way.
Although Luffy ended up fighting alone against Kaido in the end, we can’t forget the support that came from Law and Kid, as captains of the other pirates. Maybe that’s why the World Government decided to use each party’s total bounty as the standard to determine the new bounty!
3. The world government seems to want to hide Luffy’s achievements
In addition to the above, the World Government’s desire to hide how dangerous Luffy is could have a big impact on his bounty. The World Government should have known that Luffy was the one who defeated Kaido alone in the end, but it is possible that the Five Elders deliberately balanced his bounty with two other pirate captains. so that Luffy’s achievements don’t become more prominent than them.
So even though Luffy’s level of danger makes him worthy of a much higher bounty, the World Government probably doesn’t want to let people know Luffy is scarier than Kaido!
4. Oda intentionally let the bounty be 100 times higher than Luffy’s first bounty?
You may not know that Luffy always gets a bounty starting with the number 3 at the end of some Sagas! Back at the end of the East Blue Saga, he had a bounty of 30 million Beri. Then, at the end of the Water 7/Enies Lobb Saga, Luffy’s bounty reached 300 million Beri.
Although events prior to the timeskip such as the battle at Impel Down and Marineford raised Luffy’s bounty to 400 million Beri, it was not revealed before he left the Sabaody Archipelago. Then at the end of Wano Country Saga, Luffy’s bounty finally increased to 3 billion Beri!
Most likely, saint Oda intentionally gave such bounty to reflect the end of Wano Country Saga! It’s theorized as to why Luffy’s new bounty is only 3 billion Beri, many One Piece fans feel he deserves more! In your opinion, is the bounty of 3 billion Beri reasonable for Luffy?
