Snakeman has Haki imbued arms and legs & this form is closer to Luffy’s regular size, and simply beefs up his body somewhat and provides him fire like hair. This form concentrates on dealing with quick opponents who specialize in evading and it requires Luffy’s newly sharpened skill in Observation Haki in order to secure his thrusts into semi-homing charges.
