Ukrainian Army Uses Luffy Quote From One Piece, Sends Fans Into A Frenzy

Whereas A play Chapter 1062 may be on hiatus this week, the series fandom has found something to talk about. The topic of choice is quite unique, especially since it is closely tied to real-life events.

A play fans are seriously discussing how Defense of Ukraine used a Monkey D. Luffy quote on their official Twitter page. The quote was used in a tweet highlighting Ukraine’s success so far in deterring Russian occupiers, detailing and breaking down the Russians’ total combat losses between February 24 and September 30.

Follow this article which fully breaks down this last topic and discusses A play fan reactions to the use of this quote.


The Ukrainian military’s use of Luffy’s quote has A play fans expressing support for the nation’s war effort against Russia

It’s crazy as hell to see an anime character quote used by a country that is literally at war 💀 twitter.com/defenceu/statu…

The above tweet can be found on the official Defense of Ukraine Twitter page, where it was posted with a graphic representation of the losses suffered by the invading Russian army from February 24 to September 30, 2022.

According to the post, 59,000 people, as well as several thousand tanks, armored fighting vehicles, artillery, vehicles and fuel tanks and drones, have been eliminated so far.

@DefenceU I was waiting for the update 😁✊🇺🇦✌ Morning just got better ✊👍

Several rocket launcher systems, air defense systems, military jets, helicopters, cruise missiles, warships and boats and special equipment were defeated in fewer numbers. The report cites the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as a source. This likely means that the numbers are compiled based on reported and successful missions, offensives and defensives.

Unsurprisingly, the two A play fans and those who have never heard of author and illustrator Eiichiro Oda’s hit series show their support in the tweet. Non-fans post messages of encouragement for Ukrainian troops and congratulate them after the latest update.

@DefenceU Go Ukraine 🇺🇦 #SlavaUkraine 👏👏👏👍👍💪💪🙏🙏🙏🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦💙💛💙🙏

Several Ukrainian citizens and even those of Ukrainian descent can be found in the comments section of the tweet.

@DefenceU Well done. Ukraine faces Russia like Luffy an emperor of the sea. It will be devastating for Putin. https://t.co/9PLUMzidfN

In their own way, A play fans are also paying tribute to the Ukrainian war effort in response to this tweet. Some compare Ukraine’s war efforts to Luffy’s efforts against the Sea Emperors, better known as Yonko. One fan even said the defeat would be devastating for Putin, indicating that Ukraine’s victory was a foregone conclusion for him.

Other fans mention YouTubers and content creators in their replies to the tweet. A fan specifically tagged @GrandLineReview (also known as Liam), imploring them to mention the tweet in an upcoming video. This tweet was acclaimed by many Internet users.

@DefenceU After the victory will there be a big party (like in One Piece)? 😅

Some also suggest that a big party be held after Ukraine’s victory over Russia, similar to how Luffy and the Straw Hats always have a celebratory party after every fight. Others responded with GIFs or photos of Luffy and the Straw Hats, suggesting support for the Ukrainian military and their powerful words.
