Eiichiro Oda, the creator of the manga series One Piece, has finally shed some light on the relationship between Bajrang Gun and Galaxy Impact. In chapter 1048 of One Piece, Monkey D. Luffy used his Gomu-Gomu no Bajrang Gun to fight against Kaido. Oda Sensei claims that this move was inspired by the technique Galaxy Impact used by Monkey D. Garp, Luffy’s grandfather. In other words, Bajrang Gun is a version of Garp’s Galaxy Impact, with similar usage.
However, according to Oda, these moves are just ordinary punches without the help of other power sources. In chapter 1080’s last page, Luffy used the Galaxy Impact technique, which is a devastating punch with the added power of Gear 5. Garp, on the other hand, used the same punch just coated in Haki, which caused a massive impact.
Bajrang Gun and Galaxy Impact are just like Hakai, Shima Yurashi, Tapak Buddha, and Hakoku, according to Oda. Hakai is a deadly move that combines the powers of two former Yonkos, Kaido and Big Mom. In contrast, Shima Yurashi is a technique used by Whitebeard or Edward Newgate, which can tilt the ground and sea. It can cause massive vibrations, distortion of air, and space, all due to the power of the Gura Gura no Mi.
Tapak Buddha is the move of Sengoku, the former Fleet Admiral of the Marine, which can transform him into a giant Buddha and generate shockwaves. Lastly, Hakoku requires two sources to unleash, similar to Hakai and is performed by two Elbaf giants, Dorry, and Brogy.
Oda revealed that the two techniques, Hakai and Hakoku, share the same “Ha” kanji character, which translates to “Ruler.” Hakai means “Ruler of the Ocean,” while Hakoku means “Ruler of the Country.” Therefore, it’s evident that Oda intentionally named the two techniques with the same Kanji character.
In conclusion, One Piece fans can distinguish the similarities between these powerful techniques in the series. Moreover, they can appreciate the intricate details that Oda included in the unique moves and their origins.
