How old is Luffy before and after the timeskip?


Age before timeskip: 17
Age after timeskip: 19

When we first saw Luffy in the present timeline, he was 17 years old. Since the time in One Piece passes slower than in real life, Luffy remains 17 when the crew disbanded during the two-year timeskip. When Luffy came back, he was now 19 years old. We also saw him as a kid in several scenes, but those were just flashback scenes from when Luffy was a boy. Luffy, also known as “Straw Hat” or “Straw Hat Luffy” after his trademark, is the captain of the Straw Hat Gang. He is the son of revolutionary Monkey D. Dragon and the grandson of Monkey D. Garp, a Navy Vice Admiral.

His big dream is to find One Piece, a legendary treasure, and thus become the pirate king. As a child, he ate the Hito-Hito no Mi fruit (model Nika) and therefore has a stretchy rubber body. At first glance, Luffy always appears lively, carefree, aimless, and inquisitive. But if he finds a goal, he never lets it out of his sight and never gives up.

Nami, also known as “Cat Burglar” Nami, is the team’s navigator and cartographer.

Brook, also often called “Soul King,” is a living human skeleton and a Rumba pirate gang member. The fact that he is a living skeleton is thanks to the dead realm fruit, which allowed his soul to return to his body after his physical death.

However, his soul wandered around for too long, so his body decomposed in the meantime.
