Luffy is a young man who is instantly recognizable with his straw hat, which was given to him while he was a child by the legendary pirate captain, "Red-Haired" Shanks. He wears blue denim shorts and a sleeveless vest, which shows the X-shaped scar from the Battle of Marineford. Luffy also has a small scar under his left eye which he got by stabbing a knife under his eye to prove to Shanks that he was not afraid of pain.

Luffy is known for his simple-mindedness and child-like persona. He is highly optimistic and always sees the bright side of situations and takes difficult matters with a smile. Luffy's simple attitude and naive comments during fights are often mistaken for insults by his opponents which cause them to charge at him with anger. Despite his usual cheerful demeanor, Luffy can get very serious and is even known to show great leadership skills when the time calls for it. He gets especially protective over his crew who he sees as family.

As Luffy is the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates and recruited all of the crewmates personally, Luffy has tremendous affection for his crew. Luffy sees his other crew members as equals in contrast to other Pirate crews. Some of the most well-known and loved member's of the Straw Hat Pirates include Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, and Tony Tony Chopper. The crew's Jolly Roger has a crude, cartoon-like depiction of a traditional skull and cross-bones wearing a straw hat. Due to One Piece's incredible popularity, Luffy is one of the most recognizable characters from any comic series ever.
