Top 10 Coolest One Piece Characters

The Top Ten
1 Portgas D. Ace Portgas D. Ace, born as Gol D. Ace and nicknamed "Fire Fist" Ace, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

When it comes to coolness, you can't top Ace! His attacks are without a doubt the best-looking, and he could probably hold off Akainu if he had all his power. It was shown that his Vivre Card was burned to 1/10 of its original size, which means he only had 1/10 of his power when he fought Akainu.

That's why when they went head to head, he got burned. If he didn't get burned, Akainu wouldn't have had the chance to go after Luffy, and Ace wouldn't have had to save his brother by taking the blow and dying!

I can't even explain how much his character spoke to me, especially the ideas he brought up about family and whether he deserved life - it hit way too hard. You've got to be a beast to pull off that much impact in such little screen time. Besides, he's hot, literally.

2 Roronoa Zoro Roronoa Zoro, nicknamed "Pirate Hunter" Zoro, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

What can I say? What can anyone say? He is one of the most original characters I have ever seen. He doesn't need any defining dark past or rivalry with the main character. He is unique and sadly doesn't get the recognition he deserves. That ambition, that pride, that lust for battle... Badass.

Longest-tenured crew member, who is the strongest Straw Hat (besides Luffy). He has undying loyalty for his captain and crewmates. Also, he seems to get stronger during tough situations and complements Luffy the most in personality and strength.

3 Vinsmoke Sanji Vinsmoke Sanji, most commonly known by his moniker "Black Leg" Sanji, is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates, as well as the former sous chef of the Baratie. He is also the third son of the Vinsmoke Family, thus making him... read more

He is such a cool character. He's super strong and has swag. When he fooled Crocodile as Mr. Prince and made his super entrance to free his crew, well, if that wasn't one of the coolest moments in One Piece!

Or what about when he saved Usopp from Jabra or Chopper from Queen? That was so badass! He always has the best entrances when he rescues people.

The best part is that there's so much more to Sanji's character, unlike Zoro, for example, who is a bit of a one-note character. Sanji can be vulnerable, dramatic, sweet, and silly, but he's also definitely one of the coolest characters out there. That makes him so interesting, in my opinion. Love him!

4 Monkey D. Luffy Monkey D. "Straw Hat" Luffy is a fictional character and the protagonist of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

He is funny. At needed times, he is a badass, or we can say, at all times. He loves his crew. On top of that, he will continue to pursue his dreams whatever the cost, which most of us can't do. He has a style that no one can copy.

As we all know, he will find One Piece, but that is not the main thing he wants. As Luffy said, he doesn't want to know where the One Piece is. He wants to enjoy the navigation and making friends. All that he cares about is the whole journey with his crewmates to the end. That is the thing everybody likes about him.

5 Trafalgar D. Water Law "Surgeon of Death" Trafalgar D. Water Law is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

Law's abilities progressed so much after the two years when the Straw Hats were separated. He became a Warlord and totally destroyed the Marines from G5. His ability allows him to dismantle and rearrange anything. Seriously, you can tell he's badass just by looking at him.

Trafalgar Law should actually be further up this list. Looking at his backstory, anyone could understand his feelings and his stoic attitude.

He's such a badass. Hot, with a cool Devil Fruit, and Luffy's ally. Besides, his past was the best part of the Dressrosa arc. My favorite character ever.

6 Charlotte Katakuri

Come on, Katakuri is the epitome of coolness. He should be higher than that!

This guy is literally oozing coolness!

One of the coolest characters ever!

7 Red-Haired Shanks ''Red-Haired" Shanks is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the captain of Red Hair Pirates and member of Yonko. He is also a former member of the legendary Roger Pirates, the only group to successfully conquer the Grand Line.

I don't understand how he's not Number 1. Sure, he hasn't been shown a lot just yet, but there's still more to come from this epic character. He came to Marineford and stopped the war. That's epicness.

He's just so cool. I like how he comes off as a chill but weak pirate when we first meet him. Later, we find out he is one of the Four Emperors. That's crazy.

Shanks has by far the most style of all characters in this anime series. He has only one arm, a badass scar, and he's strong as hell.

8 Dracule Mihawk Dracule "Hawk Eyes" Mihawk is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. Mihawk is a member of the Shichibukai and the first one to be revealed in the series.

Everything about him is just so epic. When he made a move, everyone stopped what they were doing and looked to see how vast he is.

He looks cool and he's the strongest swordsman. Also, his ship or boat, or whatever it is called, looks badass enough.

Until Zoro surpasses him, he's the most badass in One Piece to date. Just see his appearances in the show. All badass.

9 Monkey D. Dragon

I'm surprised that Dragon is at 12. He is one of the strongest characters and has great power, not to mention he's the most wanted man.

Hinted to be the most powerful character!

He definitely should be in the top 10.

10 Vinsmoke Reiju

She's definitely one of the coolest One Piece characters.

She's mysterious and dangerous.

The Contenders
11 Edward Newgate

He's so badass he grew a mustache, called it a beard, and nobody questioned it. Also, he went to war against Marine Headquarters at 72 years old and died standing after being stabbed 267 times, shot 562 times, and hit with 46 cannonballs, losing half of his head.

And all this without taking into account the injuries he accumulated over the years and that he was quite ill. But the most important thing is that all he did was for his family, which was his biggest dream since childhood.

P.S.: I know that hige means facial hair, not necessarily a beard, but still. And sorry for my bad English.

12 Sir Crocodile

In my opinion, the most badass anime character ever. If he were to stare down at you, puffing his cigarette with his unnaturally deep voice, would you be able to not feel intimidated? Not to mention that he saved Ace once, and he gets into fights with anyone and everyone that he thinks is looking down on him! Haha, Crocodile rules.

His mafia attitude is very cool.

He can turn into sand and is intimidating, but is he better than Smoker?

13 Marco the Phoenix

I think he has probably the coolest Devil Fruit I've ever seen, the Mythological Zoan Phoenix one. He's going to become one of the most powerful characters in all of One Piece.

Exactly, he's Whitebeard's right hand (now commander of the entire Whitebeard crew!), who has been shown to be able to fight on par with the admirals (and he has the Phoenix Zoan fruit!). Plus, his character is really cool, and the fact we didn't get to see much of him makes him mysterious too. I think he deserves a spot closer to the top.

He's by far the coolest character. I mean, he's a Phoenix. Plus, his character design is cool and unique. He also doesn't usually let emotion drive him into danger, which is admirable.

14 Kuzan

Still, my hands-down favorite character in One Piece. He reflects my personality a lot, and I can't wait to see him back in the anime. I know that he will play a big role eventually. He's one of the only marines that sees the corruption in it too.

The follower of lazy justice should be a little higher. I love his personality and his Devil Fruit power is badass.

Bro really just does what he wants. Rides a bike on the ocean and has mad vibes.

15 Rob Lucci
16 Donquixote Doflamingo Donquixote Doflamingo is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. Doflamingo was the captain of the Donquixote Pirates, a former Shichibukai with a frozen bounty of 340,000,000 Beli, the most influential underworld broker under the codename "Joker", and is a former... read more

"Heavenly Sky Daemon." Just the name itself is BADASS! Horrible childhood, tasted heaven and hell, and awakened King's Haki at 10 years old. Underground broker, 10 feet tall, heartless, cunning, that laugh, and the mother of all - COOLEST SHADES! He is an embodiment of coolness!

His style alone makes him the coolest, not to mention his underworld ties, taking over a country in the New World by himself, and his badass string powers.

"Charismatic devil," "Heavenly Demon" - I just can't hate this guy. He got gamma knifed, Leo bazookaed, and took a few punches from Gear 4th and 2nd, and still managed to get up. One hell of a demon.

17 Nico Robin "Devil Child" Nico Robin is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

No sharp teeth to show that she's angry, but in episode 367, it shows a devil in her to show that she's angry. When she's scared, she sweats and doesn't poke her tongue out. I think she's the coolest by doing those things.

There is no one cooler than her. Always calm and without foolish addictions.

Robin is pretty cool in the nonchalant way she reacts to everything.

18 Sabo

Even before he got his hands on the Mera Mera No Mi, he was able to take down Burgess with ease and fashion. His Haki-infused dragon claw technique, made ablaze by his newly acquired Devil Fruit, is simply on another level!

19 Gol D. Roger

How is he all the way down here? He's the King of the Pirates!

King of the Pirates at place 27, seriously?

20 Smoker

A fantastic character who is so much deeper than a simple antagonist. What's more, he is a good guy who always makes his own decisions, even when involved with the heavily corrupted World Government.

Anyone else notice the similarities between Roger and Garp with Luffy and Smoker?

One of my favorite characters. Still disappointed for Smoker to lose to Law.

21 Borsalino

The biggest troll in One Piece. Combined with the appearance of a mafioso and the power of a pretty badass Logia fruit, he is the coolest admiral there is. Sorry, Aokiji. Laugh out loud cool.

22 Donquixote Rosinante

Corazon sacrificed himself for Law and was an amazing character.

23 Benn Beckman

He made Kizaru surrender when he pointed a gun at him. Not even Rayleigh could do it that easily.

24 Nami Nami is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. She is based on Ann and Silk, two characters from Oda's previous manga Romance Dawn.

She's actually a really realistic character, if you ask me. Not your everyday thief, though. I kinda get why people hate her because she's a thief, but that's why I like her. Both Robin and Nami are cool.
