Whenever people hear anime they automatically think of Dragon Ball or One Piece. These two are one of the oldest and most iconic anime that has millions of followers all over the world. It is not just that their main protagonist is powerful instead, their plot has a lot of range where every character is given equal importance. But oftentimes, the fandoms of these two anime take on each other by raising debatable issues like who is stronger between Son Goku and Monkey D. Luffy.
It is a common thing between anime fandoms to glorify their favorite character. But when anime like Dragon Ball and One Piece are involved, the glorification reaches another level due to their power levels and new transformations. But among such heated debate, an artist posted fan art on social media where these two protagonists are taking on each other.
Dragon Ball and One Piece’s Collaboration Sends Fans Into A Frenzy
An artist named @Thirdphp dropped a new fan art on X (Twitter) where Dragon Ball’s Son Goku and One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy were fighting each other in their most potent form. The fan art did not provide any conclusion to their battle. But it is a great piece of art that once again raises the question about who will win among the two when coming face-to-face.

Both Ultra Instinct Goku and Gear 5 Luffy were legendary transformations, which made their respective anime more iconic. Online servers like Crunchyroll crashed when both of them debuted with their new transformation. Goku mastered Ultra Instinct form while fighting against Jiren in Dragon Ball Super episode 129, even though he started to showcase his Godly form from episode 110, but could not master it.
On the other hand, Luffy unlocked Gear 5 in episode 1071 and stopped the whole world. This fan art has stirred up both the fandom, and each one is giving their reasons to support their favorite hero. From a fighting perspective, there is no winner in the video, but from the social media perspective, Goku picked up an easy win due to more comments being in his favor.
How Will Goku And Luffy React To The Fan Art?
While people are busy fighting over who would win between Dragon Ball’s Son Goku and One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy, they would have a completely different outcome if they ever come face-to-face. Due to their goofy yet loving nature, they would immediately befriend each other and have a party celebrating their friendship. Both of them love to eat and laugh, so it is a match made in heaven.
One Piece had previously collaborated with Toriko, and it had the same ending where both the main characters ended up befriending each other. One of the most interesting things about them is that Luffy and Goku have the same type of attitude and personality. But it would still be interesting to see them fighting to get a clear vision of who has the upper hand.
While a physical battle might not be possible, an eating contest is the most likely outcome between them. But if fans want to enjoy a bit more, they can check out @Thirdphp’s fan art on several other popular characters from different franchises.
