Zoro was an aimless bounty hunter that was known to “hunt” pirates.
Nami was a manipulative thief.
Usopp was a cowardly liar (and If we’re being honest, a bad influence on kids.)
Sanji was a pervert and prone to violence with no self worth
Chopper was timid, unsure, and unable to leave Dr. Kureha’s side.
Robin was an assassin forced to backstab and couldn’t trust anyone.
Franky was a gang leader that rushed to judgement and was constantly hiding his true identity.
Brook was lonely guilty ridden shadowless “revenant” with nothing to live for and no hope.
Jimbei was a former warlord with anti-human sentiments, spitted by both the government he served and the fishman he intended to protect.
Can you imagine how much worse their lives would’ve gotten without Luffys? Or do you think some or all of them might’ve have seen improvements in their lives in some ways? Some of them it might be debatable (like maybe Sanji and jimbei might’ve lived decent lives without), but surely Zoro, Nami,Brook, and Robin would’ve been lost without Luffy right?
What do you think?
