Luffy is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with many other characters who could have been confirmed in the Super Smash Bros. series on September 13, 2019. Mayumi Tanaka (Japanese) and Colleen Clinkenbeard (English) provide the role for Luffy in this fighting game.
When Eiichiro Oda created Luffy as a character, he strove for a "manliness" similar to that of Goku from the Dragon Ball series. Oda has stated that he named his main character "Luffy" because he felt that the name strongly suited him. When he later learned about the sailing term, "luffing", Oda was delighted by the coincidence. In order to please his readers, Oda added rubberization to Luffy for a comic affect and tries to make the character straightforward.
In the Japanese version of the One Piece anime, Luffy was voiced by Mayumi Tanaka. Tanaka said jokingly that she regrets providing Luffy's voice because she is a mother in real life and Luffy is much younger. She also says that she "strives for reality" in scenes where Luffy speaks when he is eating or touching his nose. In the Funimation's English dub, Luffy is voiced by Colleen Clinkenbeard.
Luffy is portrayed as a carefree, happy-go-lucky character with great ambition and a huge appetite. Caring and generally good hearted, he is not as dimwitted as many believe him to be and often demonstrates more understanding than the other characters expect. Luffy is willing to risk his life to become Pirate King and to protect his crew despite knowing the dangers ahead of him. He never puts his crew or himself at risk out of incompetence. Luffy is rarely concerned about the consequence of his actions, doing what he feels best even if it leads to retaliation by a powerful force.
Luffy is the son of the Revolutionary Army's commander, Monkey D. Dragon, the grandson of the famed Marine, Monkey D. Garp, and the adopted brother of the late "Fire Fist" Portgas D. Ace and the revolutionary Sabo. His lifelong dream is to become the Pirate King by finding the legendary treasure left behind by the previous Pirate King, Gol D. Roger. As a child, he accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Fruit, causing him to become a rubber boy.
