    Who wants to bet that if there's a Gear 5 it'll be completely defensive in use?

    So it is indeed haki based...and it just makes sense with his growth; Gear 2 operated similar to Soru, which is a powerful technique introduced to him that time. And then we have this CoA-heavy technique that is blended with his DF's recoil property.

    Dangit Franky will be so jelly that Luffy now turned into a heavy bomber.

    Aw, it's so... strange. So, Luffy turns from skinny to muscle beast and uses the fact that you can store energy in an elastic thing to increase his damage... well, that's not too bad. I maybe expected something a little more flashy but it's fine. Mingo getting his various body parts kicked gives me such satisfaction.

    Kind of fitting too, considering how low of an opinion Doffy had of Bellamy. Don't piss off Luffy or he'll beat you to death with Irony.

    That being said--Dammit Luffy, why did you punch the guy who is perfectly willing and capable of using human shields into a crowd of innocent bystanders. Doffy's probably getting desperate (I doubt he can take much more abuse from Luffy at this rate since he's clearly become outclassed, and unlike G2 or G3 there doesn't seem to be any downside to G4 that can be exploited like what Lucci did), and he's in what he probably considers a win-or-die situation. I'm expecting one last heinous move from him before he finally goes down.

    The good, Gear 4 makes sense in what we have seen how Luffy's powers act

    The bad, It is freaking ugly as heck and that is terrible since we will be seeing luffy use it a lot going foreward.

    Much like Naruto's demon mode, I suspect it will get a redesign somewhere down the road.
    Saying that X isn't overpowered because it can be countered in contrived manner Y does not prove that it isn't overpowered. You've proved that it has weaknesses. Congratulations. The state of being overpowered, however, is not an absence of weaknesses but a surplus of strength beyond what would be commiserate with your weaknesses.

    This is assuming that there aren't other "modes" involved in this new Gear, remember that when he invented Gears 2 and 3 he didn't name them "Steam Man" and "Balloon Man", but this new form is called "Poundman". To me this implies that there are other functions of Gear 4 that will involve other "-man"s.

    Actually, that one did get used a second time during the Saobody Pacifista fight pre-timeskip. It hasn't shown up post-timeskip, but to be fair, Zoro hasn't really had a truly challenging fight since then, unless you count his brief encounters with Fujitora that were always cut short.

    Change of subject people, but how long until we wrap up the Dressrosa arc? Considering we finally reached the Curb Stomping of Doflimingo can't be more than twenty chapters.

    I personally foresee at least one other form that imitates an elephant, with an enlarged torso covered in Haki along with enlarged hands also Haki'd up, leaving the arms and legs along with his head exposed. This form would be used for bull-rushing and similar wall-breaking uses.

    Along side that I could also see another form that wholeheartedly imitates a snake as opposed to just the one attack that Luffy's arm used near the end of the latest chapter. Kind of have it be like a boa constrictor where it would be used for close combat grappling and wrapping around opponents to restrict their movements, as well as using all 4 of his limbs to do the whole "fist geppo" thing at once for those opponents that are REALLY fast or sneaky.
