Shanks and Luffy
Shanks is a character of great importance in the series, especially since he was the one who inspired Luffy to become a pirate. During Luffy’s childhood, Shanks served as a role model. The Red Hair Pirates briefly stayed in the village of Fusha, Luffy’s hometown. At first, Shanks didn’t take Luffy’s goals seriously because of his age. However, after an incident where Luffy stood up for Shanks against the mountain bandits, he began to take Luffy’s dream seriously. Also, Shanks and his crew stole Gomu Gomu no Mi (Gum-Gum Fruit) before Luffy was eaten.

One of Shanks’ notable feats is that he is one of the few people who can use a winner’s husky. He is also the first character in the series to feature Haki, using it when he saved Luffy from the Sea King. Keep in mind that it was hundreds of chapters before the audience even understood what Haki was. During Shanks’ meeting with Whitebeard, he quickly knocks out several members of Whitebeard’s crew along with his husky. Throughout the story, there are a number of examples that prove that Shanks the Conqueror’s Haki is actually something else, even compared to other mighty pirates.
In addition, he is one of the few pirates who have a significant influence on practically everyone. He can interact with pirates, sailors and even the mysterious Five Elders. During the Marineford Arch, his mere presence stopped the battle. In addition to blocking Admiral Akinu’s strong magma attack, the Sengoku officially ended the war as a result of Shanks’ negotiations with the then Fleet Admiral Sengoku. Not only does the Fleet Admiral respect Shanks, but he is also influential enough to hold a private meeting with five elders – the highest-ranking celestial dragons near the top of the world government. Shanks is also highly skilled at using the sword, as he used to be the rival of Dracule Mihawk, known as the world’s greatest swordsman. Shanks is also incredibly fast, as seen during the Marineford arc when he saves Kobi from Akinu in a jiffy.
