Best One Piece Story Arcs

Not entire sagas, but the story arcs inside each of them.
The Top Ten
1 Enies Lobby Arc

The arc is Oda's masterpiece with all the amazing setup, plot twists and epic fights truly make it the greatest arc in all of One Piece. We had all the stuff with Usopp, Robin, Franky and of course CP9.

This is the arc that made me believe Luffy could become the pirate king.

2 Water 7 Arc

It is such a unique arc.

3 Marineford Arc

Summit wars were the most action I've seen in any anime ever.

Well I really enjoyed this arc it was full of good action and it's the mid way point of of the series before the time skip it just is amazing seeing him fight his way towards his brother just too see him die in front of him a real tear jerker

Full of emotion, Ace and Whitebeard's death are the most important part of the arc

4 Whole Cake Island Arc

Big Mom, Katakuri, the Vinsmoke, tsundere Pudding, Sanji's backstory, Luffy vs Sanji, epic battles... this arc got it all. Also one of the most emotional arcs so far.

Anything better than Skypedia That Arc Sucked So much the show lost some of its fanbase.

I love this arc so far

5 Alabasta Arc

The first time that every member of the crew gets their own fight and the first time the big bad is actually a challenge for Luffy.

This is one of my favorites. Every single character had their big emotional moments. The fight scenes were both epic and emotional.

6 Skypia Arc

Best story of all arcs. I don't know how long it takes to think about such a good backstory to an Island in the clouds

This arc does drag in places but eneru is an incredible villain, abusing fear of god to terrify the skypieans into doing what he wants and with luffy being perfect to fight him allowing him to be overpowered without needing to come up with a reason for luffy to still win

7 Sabaody Archipelago Arc
8 Dressrosa

This arc so was long and sleep-inducing with tons of moments I couldn't care less about, such as the coliseum fights, Kyros and Rebecca and the tontatas or whatever their name was. Only good part was Doflamingo and Corazon.

This should be top 3

9 Post-Enies Lobby (Thousand Sunny Construction) Arc
10 Long Ring Long Land Arc

The Idea of a sport like the davy back fight was very creative and entertaining, plus the arc was the perfect length.

The Newcomers

? Marine Rookie Arc
The Contenders
11 Zou

Oh yeah! People tend to forget about it because it's so short but it was really cool.

12 Thriller Bark

Best thriller, unique characters, badass moments of crew fighting together, and Zoro's "nothing happened" moment!

Classic. Best Zoro fight so far, the whole crew came together. And the zombies are hilarious.

Unique characters, Setting and fights. - and Moria's laughing was the best.

Thriller park was just too unique and amazing, the setting was the best, the characters, specially perona, the zombies and how luffy reacts with them, Brooks backstory was so emotionaland sad,the ending of the arc where they celebrate and they sing binks sake is amazing and also emotional, and zoro taking Luffy's pain was epic, abusalum wanting to marry NamI was so much funny, the best of all was the setting and Brook's story

13 Arlong Park Arc

Best arc in one piece, the reason I'm watching. Being a microcosm to a bigger arc. The best Nami scene in all of op happened here, better get more attention.

This one was very interesting. And the fight between the Straw Hats and the merman was epic! It was a difficult fight, but in the end they won and Coco village, along with Nami, were set free.

Nah really doesn't top ten. Many arcs bellow were much better.

Damn this arc shouldn't be this high. Overrated.

14 Impel Down

Magellan was epic and it was nice to see the return of some of the Baroque Works agents.

15 Loguetown Arc
16 Jaya Arc
17 Baratie Arc
18 Wano Arc
19 Little Garden Arc
20 Ocean's Dream Arc
21 Punk Hazard Arc

The fight between Luffy and Caesar Clown was pretty cool.

22 Drum Island Arc
23 Post-War Arc
24 CP-9 Arc
25 Amazon Lily arc
