Who is Monkey D Dragon's wife / Luffy's mother?

Buggy The Clown mentioned that Silvere Rayleigh is Luffy's uncle. This implies that Rayleigh's sister should be Dragon's wife!

    Bhuvan, even if the question is quite interesting, it will only solicit speculative answer since... nobody knows it yet. :P – Alenanno Dec 12 '12 at 10:24
  • @Alenanno Actually,i'm not up-to-date with the manga. The last time i read it was in August. So,i'm just curious to know if anything new happened lately ;) – Bhuvan Rikka 웃 Dec 12 '12 at 15:34
  • @BhuvanRikka웃 I don't seem to recall when Buggy mentioned that Silvers Rayleigh is Luffy's uncle, could you please give me a reference? Also, it isn't necessary that his sister is Dragon's wife, because he himself could be Dragon's brother. – Masked Man Feb 18 '13 at 16:46

    I've cast a reopen vote on this question since 1.) it's one of our top-viewed questions; 2.) it doesn't seem inherently unanswerable or "not constructive". Even if there is no answer to this question in the One Piece anime/manga so far, there could be one in the future. – senshin Dec 20 '14 at 8:59

    @abhishah901 well oda mentioned he had drawn her already, so you could make well reasoned guesses – Peter Raeves Aug 14 '15 at 14:08

No mention has yet been made of Luffy's mother at all, the idea of her hasn't even been brought up. Very few characters have been mentioned to have mothers at all for some reason.

In Japanese as in many Asian countries, they use the idea of "Uncle" or "Big brother" differently to in English speaking countries. It just means an older person you respect, and doesn't imply a blood relation at all. By far most likely what happened is Buggy called Rayleigh "Uncle Rayleigh" as Rayleigh used to be his first mate when he was a cabin boy.

So in summary, there is nothing said about Luffy's mother, nor any hints given, and it's incredibly unlikely that Buggy was saying that Rayleigh is Luffy's uncle, which doesn't happen in the manga anyway.

  • No you are wrong. SBS in chapter 424 mentions her – TGamer Dec 31 '17 at 23:37

    Because Oda said they will appear in the next volume, people believes it to be the women smiling at Dragon when he talks about Luffy. Although people believed that to be Sabo before he entered Dressrosa, and his character design doesn't match with Sabo's. So not sure who dad dude is, but the woman is assumed to be his mother. – Peter Raeves Aug 11 '15 at 18:11
  • @peter That character doesn't look like a woman.. See the abs in the left picture. – Bhuvan Rikka 웃 Aug 11 '15 at 18:35
  • obviously the person in the red circle, not the blue... At the time it came out people believed blue to be sabo (which was proven wrong recently) and red to be his mother (might be true) – Peter Raeves Aug 11 '15 at 18:47
