In the series, Luffy started as a normal individual. His life changed when he accidentally ate the Gomu Gomu no Mi which made his body turn into rubber.
During his adventure, he gained other abilities like making his fist as hard as iron, flying, and even knocking out his enemies by using his Haki. There are also some fans who were quick to notice that Luffy might be immune to poison.

Is One Piece’s Luffy Immune to Poison?
One Piece introduced tons of characters who use poison to fight. Of course, these characters gain the advantage as they can easily win a fight once their enemy is weakened by poison.
In the series, it appeared that Luffy was able to develop a resistance to poison.
This ability started when he was in Impel Down, which is a prison known to have dangerous criminals. During his stay, he got into a fight with Magellan, the chief warden. The warden uses his venom to win by inflicting different kinds of poison on Luffy.
The captain tried his best to win but because of the amount of poison that his body acquired, there was not enough time to make an antidote. His friend, Mr. 2 Bon Clay, remembered Emporio Ivankov, a miracle worker that can save Luffy. What Ivankov did was boost Luffy’s immune system by using Horm-Horm Fruit.
Luffy’s body started to break down before healing itself and fighting the poison. The process took 10 hours, which actually lessened Luffy’s life by 10 years. Luffy has a high resistance to poison but it doesn’t mean that he is fully immune. The effect will still depend on the poison but overall, this ability is extremely helpful to Luffy.
