One Piece Episode 1071 spoilers

Luffy One Piece episode

Zunesha announces Joy Boy’s return as soon as Luffy awakens his devil fruit. This confuses Momonosuke, who is the only one able to hear the giant elephant. Furthermore, all the people in Wano hear the drums of liberation and wonder if it’s Luffy or not. One Piece Episode 1071 will also feature Gorosei discussing the true nature of Gomu Gomu no Mi.

It turns out that the fruit is actually a Mythical Zoan-type called Hito Hito no Mi: Model Nika and not a Paramecia-type. They describe it as the “world’s most ridiculous power” as it grants unparalleled powers to the user. The user will take the form of Sun God Nika, known as the Warrior of Liberation, and fight enemies with a wide grin on their face.

Back in Wano, the former usurper Orochi is begging Hiyori to save him, but the latter reveals her real identity instead. Kanjuro’s Kazenbo (a flaming ghost-like entity) appears at the scene and accidentally touches Orochi, setting him ablaze.

This marks the end of Wano’s most hateful villain as the scene changes to Luffy’s and Kaido’s fight. The Yonko is unable to comprehend what actually happened and wonders if it’s really Luffy. Luffy is slightly delirious with the sudden transformation and is simply toying with the monstrous Yonko.
