Rokushiki is a special, superhuman martial arts style. In the Viz Manga and FUNimation dub, they are called the Six Powers.[2] They each made their appearances in different chapters and episodes, but the technique made its debut when one of the moves appeared in Chapter 342 and Episode 242. It was first introduced being used by the CP9 agents.[1]

Overview

The strength of a Rokushiki user is measured by Doriki, which Fukuro can use his "Te-awase" to calculate with. The higher the level, the stronger each technique's potency becomes.[3] Most of the users have their own variation of each technique, to increase their versatility and originality. Also, certain users tend to be more specialized in one technique, such as Fukuro with SoruJabra with TekkaiKaku with Rankyaku, and Rob Lucci with Shigan.

Rokushiki is the main style of combat for the World Government's secret CP9 agents,[4] but some Marines have also demonstrated its usage. Coby used Soru against Monkey D. Luffy,[5] Vice Admirals Momonga and Dalmatian used it to confront Luffy at Marineford,[6] Momonga also used Geppo against Luffy,[7] and Dalmatian also used Shigan against Luffy,[8] Vice Admiral Vergo used it on several G-5 marines on Punk Hazard,[9] and Captain Tashigi used it during her confrontation against Monet.[10] It is unknown exactly how much Rokushiki is spread around the Marines and how widely known techniques are, but it seems the most commonly known technique is Soru.

Trivia

  • Zephyr had mastered the Rokushiki style,[11] despite not being seen using any techniques.
  • According to Oda there is a joke eighth Rokushiki technique called Chokkai (直貝 Chokkai?, literally meaning "To Bother"), where the user relentlessly bugs their opponent.[12]
