A discussion of Monkey D. Dragons devil fruit. (XD Really?)

I believe that Dragon ate a Weather or Cloud Logia Devil fruit, as seen in Rouge Town, some believe that Dragon was the cause of the Lightning and the sudden storm. He was present at the time, and does let Luffy escape from Buggy and the Navy.

He yells "Storm" When the lighting strikes, futhering my Weather Theory.

Your opinions?

The Lightning Strike was pure luck.

Dragon is more likely to have a Wind Devil Fruit.

Either:

A: Dragon ate a Weather Weather Devil Fruit
B: The storm was pure dumb luck

I am going with A

For future reference, the whole "WIND BLAST!" was mistranslated on Viz's part in an attempt to make it seem like Dragon had some part in it. We clearly see him covering himself during the win and his mouth is shut. The shouting came from the Naval officers who were actually shouting that it was a storm.

Also, the storm was approaching before Dragon was even revealed. So we have no proof if he was actually approaching Loguetown or if he was there the whole time in hiding.

Also changing the topic of this title as it's too misleading.

Yea the storm was just lucky/making Dragon's appearance or so much cooler as well as frustrating as the millions of people wonder if Dragon did soemthing to cause the storm or what his powers really are.

Doesn't help that the anime completely changed how the winds came about and made it look more like a Devil's Fruit power, rather than powerful winds from a strong storm.

Basically, until stated otherwise, the storm was a fluke and Viz and Toei screwed up.

Pretty much. Hell, the whole scene played out differently in the anime.

In the manga, Dragon appears and Smoker questions what he's doing there. Afterwards, strong gusts of wind blow through the area, which Dragon and Smoker try to block off as the remaining Straw Hats and Naval Officers are blown back by the winds. Zoro grabs Luffy after warning him about a storm passing through, with Sanji commenting on the storm being what "Nami-san" was warning them about earlier. The next pannels have Dragon telling Luffy to go on ahead if that is his desire, while Smoker asks why he let Luffy get away. Usopp and Nami then help Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji board the Going Merry and sail away from Loguetown.

However, in the anime, the wind looks more like green air waves that blows through all of Loguetown and even reaching the Going Merry. We don't see Dragon or Smoker trying to block themselves from the wind and the Going Merry has been pushed out to see, requiring Luffy to use the Gum Gum Rocket to knock himself, Zoro, Sanji and Usopp onto the Going Merry. Afterwards, Smoker goes on to mentioning that Dragon appeared 22 years before when Gold Roger was executed and vanished afterward, similar to that current event and even hinted at him having some influence in the wind. He remembers what Luffy had said about becoming the Pirate King, then discovers Dragon is still around, to which he tells Luffy to return to Loguetown some day. Smoker asks him why he interfered and gets the same answer as in the manga.

So not only is it out of order in the anime, but it's also played out differently.

Well with the new chapter coming out showing Dragon entrance with wind this proves that Loguetown was probably more than a coincidence. Whether he has an actual wind logia fruit is still in question though.

Rather, it seems to suggest that Oda resigned himself to some of the anime's creative liberties.

But, we all know Dragon is 00berishly powerful. He probably does have control over wind, as per the preferred element of the Japanese.

Or rather, the preferred element of sea travel. Which is kinda essential to One Piece.
