In the manga and anime it appears that the world of One Piece has 6 moons which implies it must be larger than earth making it gravity greater as well, which in turn means every strength/speed feat calculated in one piece is incorrect

There is only (as we know) one moon in One Piece, the other ones was either destroy or they are far away from One Piece's world, since we don't see them at night

@Destinyheroknight: Whether or not the moons are still there has little relevance do to the fact that if a terrestrial planet such as the one piece world can hold multiple moons at the same time with its gravity it must be large.

@ImDictatorBowDown:

Oh, you are new

Hello, the name is DHK (for short)

Anyway, you do have a point, but Oda haven't say OP world is larger then our own yet. So it might have been larger in the past (in the void century). So I guess we have to wait for the reveal, to be 100% sure on it

Good find, I didn't think about the OP world being larger then our own

Oda didn't say that so we cannot assume. A point as important as that would not likely be left out by the author. Besides. More moons doesn't equal more gravity. Although the moons seem large in comparison to the planet that also cannot guarantee higher gravity. Charon, Pluto's moon has half the diameter of the dwarf planet, but Pluto only has approx. 1/12 of the gravity of Earth.

@taichokage: True, I suppose we will just have to wait for Oda to either confirm or disprove it, but more than likely he won't even comment on such a subject seeing as how it is so minor and would have little to no impact on the story.

@ImDictatorBowDown: if there were ever multiple moons, then that means something destroyed them, and that means the moons will be mentioned sometime in the future, now whether or not this affects the gravity he probably wont mention that either, and as DHK said, the world is probably much larger than ours

Multiple moons does not directly imply a higher gravity, the fact that a planet has a gravitational pull on one object has no effect on the strength with which it pulls on another object. There are other implications of multiple moons though, for example they would greatly effect the tides in strange and frankly unpredictable ways... which explains a lot actually.

@kashif1: nice theory

No. If earth had 50 moons, it's gravity would still be the same. There are ways to think exact opposite of what you are saying, though:

1.If moons were, as theory suggests, part of earth, more of the matter from earth was removed. So, earth weighs less and gravity is decreased.

2. If more moons are exerting pull on the person, in opposite direction to earth, the weight felt would be less compared to our weight.

Now, we wouldn't want to say op characters are weaker by default. So lets keep these theories away.
