One Piece Wiki
The strength in our legs is such that we can push off cushions of air to stay afloat.
— Blueno, CP9[1]

Geppo is one of the six techniques of "Rokushiki" that allows for "flight" by jumping off air itself.


Geppo allows users to push themselves off the air itself with superhumanly strong kicks, allowing them to travel through and remain in midair for an extended period of time. It effectively resembles flight. CP9 members can use this technique to cross great distances without ever touching the ground, or to set themselves up for using swift aerial attacks.[2]

Rob Lucci has shown a variant of Geppo whereby he combines it with Soru, to create the three-dimensional movement Kamisori, while Fukurou could perform Geppo with only one leg, albeit with greater difficulty. It has once been used aggressively by Lucci, performing a suplex-styled move while Luffy clung onto his back. The impact left a rather large crater in the floor.

While the technique itself affords several advantages both in and out of battle for the user, it has but one major weakness: since its usage depends heavily on the user's legs, restraining or pinning down any major parts of their lower body can significantly disrupt Geppo. This was seen during Fukurou's fight with Franky, where the latter managed to grab on to one of the CP9's legs, noticeably affecting the technique. However, it should be noted that Rob Lucci has been seen kicking off the air with one leg at a time rather like hopping and keeping himself afloat. Just like Soru, there are other versions of this technique.

  • Cho Sokuten: Tekkai Dama (超側転「鉄塊玉テッカイダマ, Chō Sokuten: Tekkai Dama?, literally meaning "Super Cartwheel: Iron Mass Ball"): Fukurou combines his Tekkai Dama (spinning himself with Soru while using Tekkai) movements with Geppo to use it in midair.[3] In the VIZ manga and Funimation dub, this is called Super Cartwheel Iron Ball.
  • Kamisori (剃刀カミソリ, Kamisori?, literally meaning "Razor"): Used by Lucci. A combination of Geppo and Soru, where Lucci uses Soru in a zigzag motion in midair, allowing extremely fast movements in three dimensions.[4] Other CP9 agents have also shown to use this technique or a similar one allowing them to move through the air at great speed. In the Pirate Warriors series, Lucci can use Kamisori to cut through enemies while utilizing its high-speed movements, and he can use the attack in his Human Form in the third Pirate Warriors game (while ending it with a smashing dive). In the VIZ manga and Funimation dub, this is called Razor.
  • Sky Walk (空中歩行スカイウォーク, Sukai Wōku?, literally meaning "Sky Walk"): During the timeskip, Sanji developed his own variation of Geppo during his ordeal in "hell" to escape from the okamas. By kicking the air to jump higher, giving the appearance of flight. It was first seen used to escape after being surrounded by the Sea Urchin-Armor Spine Squad, making them hurt themselves.[5] The kanji of the attack is read as "Kuuchuu Hokou"; hokou being a term for "walk" or an alternate reading for "kachi", a foot soldier samurai during the Edo period.
Blue Walk

Sanji uses Blue Walk.

  • Blue Walk (海歩行ブルーウォーク, Burū Wōku?, literally meaning "Sea Walk"): A technique that allows Sanji to travel at incredible speeds underwater, at least as fast as a fish-man swimming. Comparable to an underwater version of Sky Walk, Sanji kicks the water multiple times to gain impulse and reaching considerable speed. According to Sanji he created this technique after two years of running away near constantly from okama. It was first seen used to reach Surume, just before using Diable Jambe - Bien Cuit: Grill Shot.[6] It is shown that this technique can be used in Nami's body.[7]

Non-Canon Variations[]

  • Geppo "Ikyaku" (月歩「威脚」, Geppō "Ikyaku'?, literally meaning "Moon Step: Might Leg): A non-canon variation from both Unlimited Adventure and Unlimited Cruise, where Lucci warps with a Geppo from midair to attack with a falling leg stomp. Used in his Human Form only.
  • Geppo "Shukubaku" (月歩「蹴瀑」, Geppō "Shukubaku"?, literally meaning "Moon Step: Kicking Cascade"): A move from Gigant Battle 2; a non-canon variation to the Geppo and acts as Lucci's standard followup from his Shigan "Sentoso" from the same game. This version of Shukubaku is the same as the original, only difference is that Lucci instead warps into the air to kick his opponent down instead of just leaping up to do so (along with the fact that it can also only be done in midair).
  • Ground Walk (地歩行グラウンドウォーク, Guraundo Wōku?, literally meaning "Earth Walk"): Sanji kicks off of the ground to dash towards his opponent at high speed in order to launch a follow up attack. This is used in One Piece: Unlimited World Red.


  • When using Gear 4, Monkey D. Luffy is capable of jumping off the air, akin to Geppo, by utilizing the extreme compression of his rubbery body.[8]
