Luffy has managed to garner many achievements in his name by defeating the Warlord, Crocodile, in the Alabasta Arc. Similarly, he also succeeded in defeating Donquioxte Doflamingo and the nearly invincible Yonko Kaido in an intense battle by showing proper utilization of Luffy’s Gear 4 capabilities.

Blackbeard, the bearer of the powers of two devil fruits, i.e., Yami Yami no Mi and Gura Gura no Mi, is rightly one of the most feared pirate captains in the series. He is feared among other pirates as well, having killed Ace and Whitebeard.

He is one of the most mischievous, opportunist pirates with an outrageous goal: to find Gol D. Roger’s treasure that awaits on Laugh Tale and become the new Pirate King. It seems like Blackbeard has everything that is needed to become the pirate king.

The coming of the final fight in the series between the two has left the fans excited and keen to know who amongst them is more powerful as they will fight for the title of Pirate King. In a particular scenario, the two have engaged in a battle. Let’s get into the details of it.

When does Luffy fight Blackbeard?

In One Piece Episode 447, titled “The Jet Pistol of Rage: Luffy vs. Blackbeard,” we witnessed the fight between Luffy and Blackbeard. Luffy had all the right reasons, and so he went on to fight Blackbeard, as he was responsible for Ace’s kidnapping and handing him over to the Marines.

To save Ace from execution, Luffy reached the Marineford base with the help of Jimbei from the impel. It was a great sight to encounter this scenario between the Blackbeard Pirates and the top powers of the Marines.

In a very electrically charged scene, Luffy punched Blackbeard with all his fury and rage as he laid eyes on him, making Blackbeard slam into the wall.

Enraged by this, Blackbeard immediately regained his control and used his devil fruit power, grabbing Luffy and thrashing him onto the ground. Luffy gets back bloody-mouthed, ready to attack again, when Jimbei interferes, reminding Luffy that their plan to rescue Ace is important.

Fans can definitely expect more of these fights coming their way since Straw Hats are rescuing Dr. Vegapunk on Egghead Island while Blackbeard pirates are heading in the same direction. It will be exciting to see what comes next, so stay tuned with us and leave your comments about the episode.
