One Piece Characters with the Most Interesting Backstory

*This list is about the most interesting story, NOT the most tragic *
The Top Ten
1 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.

Luffy's backstory was the best. I wish Nami fans weren't cheating

Why is nami #1? Her backstory wasn't that great compared to Luffy's

Luffy's backstory was great, I'm glad he's at number 1

Luffy #1

2 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.

It's up there with the top anime backstories.

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

Lost a family twice. One his real family and the other is a man who tried to save him from death and falling in the darkness. But in the end he ended up alone with the ope ope no mi to heal himself and revenge to the man who saved him. Law was supposed to die after 3 years but thanks to carozon he saved him. Law was the saddest one piece backstory to me and of course not forgetting about Robin and Sanji.

4 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.

After Nami's backstory people start to love One Piece.

Nami number 1? I like it! I vote for it. Her story is so sad and touching.

Well okay I wouldn't put it #1 either but I found it pretty tragic the first time I watched it.

Nami's backstory was the best.

5 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.

The real main character of One Piece. If it weren't for him Luffy would be...(you know what) If I write what happened to him, I will start crying.

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

Her home island was destroyed by the world government when she was only 8. It just showed us how awful the WG can be. Robin's backstory was one of the most interesting backstories in anime for sure

It's a classic. One of the most tragic and troubling backstory in anime.

Not only is Robin's story by far the most interesting in the series, it's also the most impactful.

So sad :(

8 Brook "Soul King" Brook is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. Brook is the musician of the Straw Hat Pirates. He is a Devil Fruit user who ate the Yomi Yomi no Mi, and is undead, having been brought back into a pseudo-immortal state because of its powers.
9 Kyros
10 Donquixote Doflamingo Donquixote Doflamingo is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.

The Contenders
11 Tony Tony Chopper Tony Tony Chopper, also known as "Cotton Candy Lover" Chopper is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda.
12 Boa Hancock Hancock has a well proportioned figure compared to the abnormal and huge appearance of her sisters.

13 Charlotte Pudding Charlotte Pudding is a fictional character in the One Piece franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. She is the 35th daughter and the 76th child of the Charlotte Family, an executive of the Big Mom Pirates, and a hybrid between a human and a member of the Three-Eye Tribe.
14 Koala
15 Crocodile

Crocodile's backstory is interesting for how he got the hook and the scar. It's interesting his fight against Whitebeard, his lost dream to become king of the pirates and the secret hidden by Ivankov.
