Garp's Legendary Power

In One Piece 1088, Garp demonstrates his formidable strength by unleashing his powerful attack known as Galaxy Divide. Throughout the Final Saga of the series, Monkey D. Garp, a legendary figure, has been a focal point of Eiichiro Oda’s attention. In the current arc, Egghead Island, Garp takes center stage as he invades Pirate Island to rescue his beloved protege, Captain Koby.

During this daring invasion, Garp faces off against the formidable Titanic Captains of the Blackbeard Pirates, including the former Marine Admiral, Kuzan. This challenging battle demands Garp’s utmost effort, especially as he must also protect the younger Marines accompanying him. Despite the overwhelming odds, Garp proves why he is hailed as the Hero of the Marines, embodying a legendary figure in the world of One Piece.

Fans are treated to witnessing Garp’s incredible prowess, showcasing various powerful techniques, with one of them being the awe-inspiring Galaxy Divide, demonstrated in chapter 1088.

Garp’s Conqueror’s Haki

Garp's Conqueror's Haki: Legendary Power

Conqueror’s Haki is an exceptional power possessed by very few individuals in the One Piece world. Unlike other Haki forms that can be honed through training, Conqueror’s Haki is an innate ability that one must be born with to wield. Also known as the Color of the Supreme King, it grants the user the ability to exert their willpower over others, causing them to lose consciousness. The effectiveness of this power depends on the difference in strength between the user and the target; the greater the gap, the easier it is to overwhelm and incapacitate them. However, it proves ineffective against formidable opponents.

In the Wano Country arc, a more advanced application of Conqueror’s Haki called “Conqueror’s Haki Infusion” is revealed. Users can infuse their bodies with Conqueror’s Haki, similar to how they do with Armament Haki, allowing them to both attack and defend using this potent force. Conqueror’s Haki blows surpass the strength of regular Armament Haki, making it a defining factor that separates the strongest individuals from the rest.

Monkey D. Garp is a proficient user of Conqueror’s Haki, though its presence remained uncertain for much of the series. However, during the final saga, Garp’s display of power on Pirate Island confirmed his mastery. He unleashed “Galaxy Impact,” a technique charged with Conqueror’s Haki, creating a massive shockwave that devastated the area and took out powerful pirates effortlessly. Garp also infused other attacks with Conqueror’s Haki, as seen when he faced off against Aokiji, using a technique called the “Blue Hole.”

Although Garp’s control over the Color of the Supreme King is remarkable, he acknowledges that his Conqueror’s Haki has weakened over time due to aging and no longer being in his prime. Nonetheless, his ability to infuse Conqueror’s Haki shouldn’t surprise any fan, given his legendary status in the One Piece world.

Island-Splitting Power

In One Piece chapter 1088, Garp showcases incredible power despite his chest wound. After rising from Aokiji’s Ice Glove attack, he provides an opportunity for the young Navy members to escape the Pirate Island. To create the opening, Garp uses his powerful technique, Galaxy Divide. With blinding speed, even surpassing the former Admiral Kuzan’s perception, Garp blitzes through the pirates, including Pizarro, the Fourth Ship Captain.

Ascending into the skies, Garp gets close to Pizarro and infuses his fist with Conqueror’s Haki, releasing point-blank shockwaves. This formidable Galaxy Divide technique splits the massive pirate skull atop Hachinosu in half. Considering the skull’s size is equivalent to an entire island, this feat is awe-inspiring.

Remarkably, Garp accomplishes all of this despite being severely injured and well into his old age. It’s mentioned that in his prime, Garp’s mastery of Conqueror’s Haki was so immense that he could have easily sunk islands with a single punch. His prowess is truly remarkable and frightening to contemplate.

Garp’s Unmatched Power

Undoubtedly, Galaxy Divide stands as Garp’s most formidable technique witnessed by fans thus far. While Galaxy Impact showcased its destructive power by obliterating a small town beneath Garp, Galaxy Divide surpasses it by a significant margin. Another notable technique utilized by Garp is Blue Hole, which he employed against Kuzan, causing the former Navy Admiral to crash through the ground. However, Kuzan managed to recover shortly after the attack. While Blue Hole and Galaxy Impact are undeniably potent, it is Galaxy Divide that appears to be Garp’s pinnacle technique, based on what fans have observed.

The unparalleled might of Galaxy Divide is evident from its ability to effortlessly split an island-sized skull and cut through numerous pirates, including a former Navy Admiral. The speed at which Garp executes this technique is extraordinary, standing as one of the most impressive speed feats in the entire series, despite his advanced age. The shockwave produced by Garp’s punch alone possesses enough force to decimate entire islands, showcasing why he was once feared as a formidable adversary by pirates in the past.

Fans are well aware that Garp once stood on par with legendary figures like Roger and Whitebeard, and Galaxy Divide exemplifies the reasons behind his reputation. Characters like Whitebeard possessed overwhelming Devil Fruit powers with the potential to reshape the world, while Roger and Garp wielded exceptionally powerful Haki. These individuals were undoubtedly in a class of their own, even during their elder years, far surpassing others in terms of strength. This fact is exemplified by Kuzan’s need to enlist the assistance of the Titanic Captains to confront Garp. Regrettably, Garp has now been defeated, but the future may hold the possibility of witnessing another incredible display of his abilities—if he manages to survive.
