Powers and Stats
Tier: Likely 6-B
Name: Monkey D. Garp, moniker "The Fist", also called "Hero of the Marines"
Origin: One Piece
Classification: Human, Marine, Vice-Admiral, Instructor
Age: 76 (Pre-Timeskip), 78 (Post-Timeskip)
Attack Potency: Likely Country level (Frequently fought with Gol D. Roger and cornered him on several occasions. Many decades ago he along with Roger defeated Rocks D. Xebec, who was the captain of Linlin, Kaido, Whitebeard, Shiki, and other bigshot pirates. He is stated to have destroyed mountains by himself, using them as punching bags. He is hailed as the hero of marines and thus making him one of the strongest characters in the series. Despite his old age he was implied to be capable of killing Akainu in a fit of rage over the death of Ace. For many decades, Garp was offered the rank of Admiral due to his prestige and power, but always turned it down to avoid losing vacation time, but more importantly to prevent himself from becoming a direct subordinate of the Celestial Dragons)
Lifting Strength: Class T (Lifted and tossed a humongous iron ball with one hand, and is regarded as one of the most physically powerful characters in the verse)
Striking Strength: Likely Country Class (Frequently traded blows with Gol D. Roger)
Durability: Likely Country level (Given that his attacks are all physical, and his body should be capable of withstanding them. He also could take attacks from the likes of a younger Whitebeard and similarly powerful characters back in his younger years, and should not have lost such levels of toughness despite age)
Stamina: As a Top Tier, his stamina reserves should be unparalleled by One Piece standards, may have declined somewhat with age however
Range: Standard melee range, higher by throwing cannonballs
Standard Equipment: None notable
Intelligence: Highly experienced and adept fighter, should possess formidable ability to marshal tropes as he held the post of Vice Admiral for 27+ years and led the marines from the front lines since Gol D. Roger's time, the former Fleet Admiral Kong also repeatedly tried to promote him to the rank of Admiral, which indicates he boasts outstanding strategic intelligence and tactical skills.
Weaknesses: None notable
Haki: There are normally two types of Haki regular people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busoshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them. There is however a third type of Haki, Haoshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. It is currently unknown if Garp is one of these people.
- Busōshoku Haki (Color of Armaments): Garp's application with this type of Haki has no defined limitations, but he should be advanced with this ability seeing as how he can easily overpower other Busoshoku Haki users with ease.
- Busoshoku: Koka (Color of Armaments: Hardening): Garp uses Busōshoku Haki to drastically harden parts of his body (typically his fists). Whereas basic Busoshoku Haki surrounds the user's body with a hard armor, Koka hardens the body itself, giving a larger increase in attack power.
- Kenbunshoku Haki (Color of Observation): As a Vice Captain of the Marines, Garp has some knowledge on this ability. His usage of this ability should be somewhat of a Proficient level.
Ai yaru Kobushi (Fist performing Love): A punch Garp uses to discipline Luffy, as well as Ace during his childhood.
Genkotsu Meteor (Fist Meteorite): Garp throws a cannonball. Duo to his inhuman strength he can throw them easily and their power surpasses that of cannonballs fired from actual cannons.
- Genkotsu Ryuseigun (Fist Meteor Shower): Garp continuously throws cannonballs in quick succession.
