Over the course of over twenty years, Eiichiro Oda has introduced many characters, some of which have no bearing on the plot and some of which hide very important connections. But we know little about gods Parents of the protagonist of ONE PIECE, D. Luffy monkey.

Of the pair, we’ve seen Monkey D. Dragon, the father, in action on occasion, but in any case he didn’t appear in many chapters of ONE PIECE. But we know even less about Luffy’s mother, who never appeared in the story. Who is Luffy’s mother and what we know so far?

So far, unfortunately Eiichiro Oda gave practically no information about the character, almost as if it didn’t exist. It is not mentioned once in ONE PIECE and only the interviews with the author were discussed. Despite various theories about Luffy’s mother from fans, Eiichiro Oda initially said she was still alive but that it doesn’t mean she appeared in the story.

The author commented on this opinion by speaking to voice actress Mayumi Tanaka about it and revealing that even Luffy’s mother may never appear in the manga because everything revolves around the protagonist’s journey, which began when he left his parents’ arms. He will therefore remain a mysterious character until the end of ONE PIECE and may only receive a short quote or description.
