Special Episode "Luff" is a three chapter "what if" storyline showing what would happen if Sabo had rescued Luffy and Ace at Marineford. It ran in the first three volumes of the official One Piece magazine.


Chapter 1

At the Summit War of Marineford, Admiral Akainu charges to attack Monkey D. Luffy. Appearing just in time, Sabo manages to rescue Luffy and Ace from the Admiral at the last moment before Ace's death.

Chapter 2

Following the war and Whitebeard's death, the brothers catch up on an unnamed island. Sabo reveals that he brought a bottle of Dadan's sake, and the three renew their brotherly vow.

Chapter 3

Luffy wakes up from his dream on the Thousand Sunny and walks into the kitchen to be greeted by his crew. Luffy asks Zoro and Sanji to hit him to make sure he is awake. After being hit, Luffy complains about being hit too hard, which Sanji explains it's because he went into the fridge without asking.

Meanwhile, Sabo wakes up on the Revolutionary Army's main ship while they are stuck at sea due to the lack of wind currents. Koala then teases Sabo about his dream, which she says he has been recurring every night for the past two years. This causing Sabo to engulf himself in flames with rage, only to be scolded by Koala for his recklessness. Looking at his flaming hand, Sabo is calmed by the vision of Ace's heritage. Afterward the wind picks back up, both crews continue their journey.
