Today’s prompt asks me to talk about my favorite goofy anime character. For this category, there was no contest, because there was only one possible character who could fit.
And that character is Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece. Luffy wants to be the King of the Pirates, but he ate a Devil Fruit that turned him into a rubber man and he is no longer able to swim. But Luffy doesn’t let this get him down or deter him from his dream. He’s the leader of the Straw Hats, a ragtag team traveling together to try to reach the end of the Grand Line and find the One Piece. Even though Luffy may be the leader, it doesn’t mean he necessarily takes things very seriously. Most of the time, Luffy can be seen goofing off while using his rubber body, or sometimes doing things like putting chopsticks in his nose alongside Usopp and Tony Tony Chopper on the deck of the Going Merry. Yes, Luffy can get serious if something upsets him enough, but he’s definitely more of a laid back and goofy character. Sometimes, you never know what goofy or crazy thing Luffy will decide to do!
