Monkey D. Dragon is famous as the Supreme Commander of the Revolutionary Army. Also less known, as the son of Garp and the father of Luffy. Dragon has a distinctive dark red colored tattoo on the left side of his face. Mostly seen covered in a long green cloak, he wears the orange garb of revolutionary.
As the commander of the Army whose intention is to dismantle the World Government, Monkey D. Dragon believes that the Nobles are corrupt. The Nobles in his view use their position to oppress the common citizens. He was particularly enraged when he rescued Sabo after a World Noble’s ship attacked him.
As opposed he is to the Nobles, he is empathetic towards the oppressed. He seeks out those who are oppressed by the World Government to join his army, to fight for freedom.
A business-minded person who is in charge of commanding the army, Dragon takes care of gathers intel on the happening of the world. While he educates his subordinates about the affairs of the world, he has never once told anyone in the army about his family. It is after the Summit War of Marineford that his subordinates find out about his ties with Luffy.
Does Luffy Meet Monkey D. Dragon?
Remember when Garp asked Luffy if he met his father in Loguetown. Well as of now Luffy has not met his father. We know from the anime that Luffy never knew who his father is. Nor did he ever thought about it. Even when Garp revealed Monkey D. Dragon “the Supreme Commander of Revolutionary Army” to be his father, he did not pay mind to it unlike the rest of the Straw Hats.
Dragon too having given Garp the custody of Luffy on his birth never once tried to connect with him. However, Ivankov noticed that Dragon often looked towards the East Blue and wondered if his family was there. Despite no communication kept, Dragon was supportive of Luffy’s pirate career. He approved of Luffy being a Pirate and even saved him from Smoker in Loguetown.
While we do wish for the Worst generation Pirate and the World’s Worst Criminal to meet. We don’t know how long we will have to wait.
Does Monkey D. Dragon have a Devil Fruit Power?
Oda has yet to reveal about Monkey D. Dragon and his powers. We don’t know if he has Devil Fruit Power nor do we know about his combat abilities. Nonetheless, he earned the title of “World’s Worst Criminal” which does little to no harm to his name. He leads a large army and also has kept himself secure for so many years despite the World Government being after him. Smoker as well made no attempt to apprehend him when he came face to face with Dragon in Loguetown.
Even though we don’t know about his abilities, both at the Goa Kingdom and Loguetown with Dragon in close proximity, a strong wind blew in the area. The wind happens to be so strong that it helps him accomplish his objective. However, it still remains a mystery if the wind was because of Dragon’s power or not.
In addition to the strange, strong winds, another strange fact about Dragon’s unknown ability is: How he reached Sabo’s ship when it was sinking far off the Coast of Dawn Island. Moreover, without anyone noticing a thing he grabbed Sabo before he sank and saved him.
Very little do we fans know about Dragon’s life.
Monkey D. Dragon witnessed Pirate King, Roger’s execution 24 years ago, a time when he didn’t have his face tattoo. After some time, he formed the Revolutionary Army and his ideals started spreading around the world as time went by. People slowly started to join his army and now he leads a fleet of revolutionaries.
We know nothing about him apart from the Revolutionary Army. But, with the army making moves after the Reverie arc, we sure do hope to get to know him more.
