Best One Piece Characters
The Top Ten
The most bad-ass swordsman in the history of anime. Both him and Luffy had shown moments of pure Heart, Soul and Friendship. But lets forget that this bad-ass took the pain Luffy passed out from and took it in with no regret, the after effects was bad-ass of the most bad-ass character standing in a pit of his own blood. Last man standing when the crew go's down.
@wren6 That's a good point. I think it's sweet how they both wanted to save the other by offering their life instead. - lilyflower
The man is an op badass killing machine destined on becoming the worlds greatest swordsman. He ate the badass-badass fruit and is so badass that he can swim... Like a Vegeta and Chuck Norris combo.
People. He has green hair and he get lost more than I DO. He sleeps through anything and he�s a damn swordsman. What more do you want? I love Luffy, so sometimes it�s hard to chose between the two and Ace will always held a special place in my heart.
I know exactly what you mean about getting lost, believe me I to have an issue with choosing between him and Ace - Theoddone
I don't like him he's way overrated Luffy is much much better in every way!
Luffy is one of a kind. He is strong and enthusiastic all the time. He makes the story more interesting. A not so ordinary boy trying an impossible dream of becoming the King of the Pirate inspires me to continue my own dream in reality..
He is ELASTIC, I always wanted to be elastic and man he is epic.
He is so cool and he's strong, Since the first episode I know he's gonna be the next King of the pirates.
But the best thing with him is that the most important thing for him are his friends.
Monkey D. Luffy should be first be first place. I think his epic look made me love One piece.
Luffy is the best strongest and most inspired of all pirates I ve seen in the whole series alright he should be on top 1 and no one ever more right bros Luffy is the coolest of all them and didn't anyone of you ever noticed that luffy is the most abdomeninable and he is good with making friends can't you believe it that boa the snake princes's heart is turned to its soft side bacuz of luffy protecting everyone and her sister
Well of curz he never let his friends down even if his friends was almost to be killed (obviously they were) ha amazing right so you people watch this alright because its the best and make it number one people
Luffy's got a heart of gold. I don't understand why he's number 2 and not number 1. He believes in dreams, and touches the heart of those he meets. The ones he love are the ones he protect, and he's willing to put his life on the line for anything he believes is worth it.
Sanji rules! He's really all-around a great quality character. Both personality wise and storyline wise, he's awesome! Humorous, yet serious when needed, a flirt but still values women above all, an amazing chef and dedicated to his nakama! I love to see him every time he appears in the manga. Always will be my favorite character!
I love Sanji's complexity. I love this character because: 1) He is HILARIOUS... sometimes he may be annoying or incredibly silly but he always makes me laugh and I appreciate that; 2) When he is serious he has a COOL/SMOOTH/ELEGANT demeanor that is really attractive... he has so much swag LOL; 3) I really like marcial arts and his FIGHTING STYLE with hicks and acrobatics is original and fun to see; 4) He is incredibly KIND HEARTED, he may be indulgent with women and harsh with men but if you put attention to his actions he is extremely compassionate and kind with all people; 5) He has UNBREAKABLE MORAL VALUES and would rather die than do something against his own principles (sometimes I don't agree with his ideals or opinions, but I admire how he stands by his own word, his determination); 6) I adore how EXPRESSIVE, histrionic, passionate and INTENSE he is, I can see every emotion in his features so he is never boring (I also like how he doesn't give a damn if he looks ridiculous or ...more
Mellorine! Mellorine! HE TOTALLY RULE! He is the cook, and I like his way to girls (Y)and everytime he appear out of nowhere, he always give funny names to the situation! Eg: Ordeal of love(Skypiea arc) Mr prince(Alabasta) The hunter (Enis lobby arc)
Sanji can be funny or epic, or both at the same time. Easily one of the funniest characters in the series and part of the BA Monster trio.
He's just so damn epic! I love him to death! He should be the best 'cause he's badass, smart, strong and one of the hottest guys in One Piece! He's also so funny and he saved Luffy before their alliance, so he's obviously a good guy too. I just adore him to death! My favourite guy in One Piece! Love ya, Law!
Law's epic, what the hell? He's badass and smart, just like Sanji, except he's not a pervert. He's pretty funny even when he's not trying to be, and he's kind despite his horrible past. The fact that he has the same goal as Luffy just adds on to the adventure of the story. Though some people find it creepy that he can practically take someone's heart, I don't mind it that much.
He saved our protagonists Luffy and he is funny without knowing it himself.
He is a badass doctor. He'll make can make people into freakshows and saved luffy's life. He also took down smoker.
Love Him! He's caring older brother, loyal subordinate, kick-ass strong and sometimes really funny! The best One Piece Character for me
I still miss him after all this time. He had the coolest look among the younger generation. He's my favorite character. When I think about One Piece, I think about Ace. I don't care if he wasn't the strongest. He was strong enough. And had a short time as a pirate - just 3 years. Gone too soon, Ace.
Is one of the kindest, most goodhearted characters in the younger generation in the One Piece World. He had a really interesting character design, and he had a unique personality and backstory. His powers are totally sweet, and he was the most fit person out there to be the pirate king. He's loyal and powerful, and god dammit, he's so awesome that there was literally a WAR concerning his survival.
Ace is the big brother that inspired Luffy to become a pirate, just like Shanks and Sabo did. He's the one who encourages our main character throughout the story, and he's a loyal son of Whitebeard. His bloodline is what makes him unique and complex, but he doesn't let it get in his way. He had the makings of a true pirate king, even though we all know that Luffy's gonna be the one to find the One Piece.
Although weaker in physical battles. People like Nami are much harder to come by; she is intelligent and indeispensible with her ability to navigate and not to mention, her looks often get her what she wants. Haha. And she deserves a place in the top of the list as she is mentally strong and driven like Luffy and Zoro.
She uses her mind in fights. She doesn't like fighting but developed a way to do it so she can still be useful. Her fights are always interesting to watch. Besides, she's irreplaceable as a navigator with an interesting past. She's funny because of her love of money, but it isn't a very major trait. Also, she's pretty and the first female crew member. I also love how her name means wave.
Nami is the weakest in the crew, bossy, selfish, annoying and nowhere near as important as her fans like to believe.
She is the main girl, but I don't think she's that great of a character. She has her moments like all the other Mugi, but she is annoying and also kinda weak compared to the others...
While not yet the best character in the show, Shanks is a strong contender despite extremely limited screen time. He is one of the most complex and layered characters. He seems to be an overall force for good, similar to Luffy, but in his first appearance murdered one of the mountain bandits, a casual display of violence that Luffy has never displayed. He is worth more than 4 billion, but can meet with the Gorosei. He has a history with Blackbeard, and Mihawk. He is intimately tied to Luffy's story--Luffy wants to be pirate king, but it is Shanks, not Roger, that Luffy personally aims to surpass. As I said, Shanks is already one of the best characters One Piece has to offer, probably top five, and what really makes him so intriguing is he is also the character with the most story potential. Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, even Law, may grow stronger, but their growth as characters will be limited. By the end of one piece, I would not be surprised if Shanks was Oda's best creation.
First of all, he's the one to inspire Luffy to be a pirate! Second he's a yonko (one of the 4 greatest Pirates ever) and did I mention he ended the great war by just showing up! No contest that he's one of the best characters in One Piece.
Shanks is an absolute boss. He ended the war at marine ford by showing up. Have I said that his crew is almost as awesome as him? Kizaru, wielder of one of the greatest devil fruits a logia, was shaking in his boots when looking down the barrel of shanks's crew. No argument shanks should be higher on this list for his awesomeness and his crew
Shanks is so awesome. From the first chapter he literally defines what Luffy will become, and to top it all, ten years later he's one of the four most powerful pirates in the world! Favorite quote "an arm is not much compared to having you alive" - with his irresistible smile.
How can I deny that I'm loving this hot female character so much? Nico Robin makes me fell in love with One Piece at the first sight! Go upper, Robin-san!
I freakin love her morbid theories and carefree attitude. And the most badass girl from the series she's good looking. I like eye-candys
My favorite OP female character and best girl by far (although I do love Nami too)! Great female character, great development, has one of the best backstories ever, arguably the biggest threat to the World Government, cool powers, and I love her dark humor. It boggles me that she isn't listed higher, but at least she's in the Top 10. - RoronoaxRobin
Another role model! My mom hates her because she betrayed people, but it was all so she could carry out her mom's last wish: Live. I cried the most about Robin's past. Plus, her slightly dark aura is just epical.
Thinking he's the best character doesn't make him happy, you bastard!
He is the funniest Character and just the sight of him makes me laugh.. Especially when he is told that he is cute: He blushes ironically...
THE CUTEST! I think everyone can agree on this, maybe exept some nami fans
The funniest and cutest one piece character who actually made me watch and read one piece. Chopper is funny because he can't hold his feelings in and is an awesome span user with 7 firms. Plus a doctor who loves cotton candy.
Although not as powerful as some of the other straw hat pirates, Usopp is what makes One Piece great, as a normal human he was thrown into a world of pirates, exploration, and dreams. He may not be brave, but among the straw hat pirates, he displays some of the most fun, and greatest willpower among them, using brains over brawn, and putting his own friends above his own pride.
I love Usopp a lot as a SH member. Every other Straw Hat member has some unique power or ability (even Nami, whose navigation skills are crucial), but Usopp entered the story with skills no different from a normal person. And yet, this man held on through the harshest times, and withstood obstacles that tested his loyalty and intelligence. He always felt inferior to the other SH members, but he still held on and forced himself beyond his limits for the sake of his friends. Even when his nose was crushed and face tainted with blood... even when fear made it hard for him to stand up... He tried his best.
In conclusion, even though he may not be the bravest or the strongest, Usopp has the heart of a true Straw Hat pirate.
"Personally, I think some people don't give him enough slack. When I first saw him in the crew, I wasn't sure what to think-really? A liar? But on that very first episode of his appearance, I realized there was more than just his lies. He's humorous, caring, and extremely loyal to his friends. I believe Luffy and partners have a great friend with them on their journey, and his name is Usopp!
He is fantastic. One of the most well developed fictional characters I've ever seen. He is brave, not because he has no fears, but because he always face it. He is powerful, not because he is physically strong, but because he uses his imagination with the things he can reach to resolve his problems. Also, he is a great friend. That's what makes him incredible. You will go far, boy!
This guy is cool. I wish I could see him face to face. Eye to eye. Oh wait he doesn't have any eyes. YOHOHOHOHOHOH
So underrated, best member to have in your crew, smart funny and self giving.
He has an extremely memorable and sad back story that really shows he has a lot more depth then his happy go lucky exterior usually shows which does not often show
Brook, is the funniest character, in my opinion. He's always laughing, polite, making jokes, and playing music. I want him as my friend
How is Franky, one of the main crewmates this damn low? I think he's awesome, and he has the best theme out of all the straw hats.
Funniest character, great personality, made the best ship (thousand sunny) and have just anything in his robotic body, lights, heavy weapons, laser beam, he's just awesome, He had become one of the most powerful characters, amazing!
He's the coolest pervert around. Totally cool skills and super personality
Franky is MY FAVE One Piece character! (Next to Chopper) He's so cool how he is strong, funny, and metal. If anything, he should be the king of the pirates!
How Buggy can possibly be so low on this poll? Buggy is the greatest character ever. He is our messiah and the future king of the pirates. He is so hot! All hail Buggy-sama!
I'm glad we still see him around. A cool twist to the unbeatable pirates he's just a simple pirate who with some luck is going pretty far
I always laugh when Luffy forgets who he is and calls him booger and Big Nose. He gets so mad!
Love Buggy, simple minded guy, just want all and stand against White Beard (strongest )
Sabo should be higher on the list! He's a very kind older brother, very pretty, wears pretty damn on spot suits and is the chief of the revolutionary army. He's kind and the living example of the 'beware the nice ones' quote, because if you are a racist ass he'll mess you up while smiling the entire time. Also, he was a cutie little kid and Oda gave everyone a heart attack by bringing him back.
Sabo is SO AWESOME! He's hot, he's sweet, he's so cool! He's so AMAZING! He could be the next Ace! (please don't kill me I'm only a child! ) How is he not higher? Damn those Zoro, Sanji and Ace fans! *raises fist in air and shakes it* (please don't kill me I'm only a child! )
Now Sabo is the badass mera-mera user after ace, awesome, and he is handsome too
He should be top ten with his brothers luffy and ace!
Gol D. Roger, the Former Pirate King and owner of the One Piece- the greatest treasure ever! He is the one who started the Pirate era and made most people desire to be like him, to be the Pirate King! He smiled during his execution and it was then that he announced about the One Piece, The treasure of untold riches! He was definitely one of the strongest pirates ever and was equally matched or better than Whitebeard! There is no doubt that Gol D. Roger was a Badass!
The only pirate to sail the whole world without backing down and the owner of One Piece - The treasure of untold riches?! Dude! He was smiling when he was executed and literally knows everything WE want to know... And the mustache is on point!
Former pirate king. Considered one of the strongest pirates ever, he was the owner of One Piece. He knew what happened in the Void Century, he knew what the will of the D. is also.
Gol D. Roger...
Can any one be any better?!
The Best BAD ASS look!
As if he care...
One of the greatest. Beat luffy a good 2 times before his weakness of water was discovered... He is just such a badass character that is almost invincible in deserts... Did I mention he can suck water out of bodies! Damn awesome character!
Crocodile has squirmed his way into my favorite character slot. If we're talking about cuteness, then Chopper wins. But this guy is the best in almost every way in my opinion. He is so cunning, he lead an evil plot while making himself a hero in the eyes of the people, before becoming the first villian to give Luffy a good beatdown... twice! And his Suna Suna no mi powers are at their peak, for example, he can cause dense sandstorms and suck the moisture out of almost anything. I love him. I'm even being him for Halloween this year.
In the manga, the sky turns black when he's mad. Who else can accomplish that? Croc was the first villain to beat Luffy. - bishop.moore07
When I was little he seemed like an unbeatable villain. A WARLORD
He is Luffy's father, the legendary marine's son, leader of the Revolutionary Army and the most wanted man alive. He is very powerful and very cool.
A revolutionary waging against the corrupt world government, son of one of the strongest marines ever and father of the future pirate king.
He is Luffy's father, Garp's son and leader of the Revolutionary Army. He's also the most wanted man alive. He is also very strong and very cool
Most mysterious man ever!
The first point is that he is a sick and strong character. Second point he trained Zoro to be a beast and last point he has hawkeyes.
He is one hell of a badass Swordsman.He makes himself clear at almost all the times.He is quiet, strong and merciless but also has a sense of Justice and a bit of compassion in the depths of his heart.
The guy cut down all of Don's ship at the grand line. Who else could do that and plus has awesome hawk eyes
Destroys entire armadas of ships with just a few flicks of Yoru, doesn't look down on Zoro for wanting to take him down (and actually encourages it! ), he's an antagonist, but not necessarily a bad guy, up there for strongest characters in the show, and THE EYES.
Doflamingo is a very interesting villain. Twisted, with a well-written past. His design is funny and freaky at the same time and his power is very interesting.
Has charisma, and is lovably twisted, his string abilities are awesome
Probably one of the main villains since the beginning, so twisted, charismatic and calm, hence why I love him so much.
Despite him being a villain, I really sympathized with him. His past was messed up and extremely sad and should have shown everyone, that his evil side was made by these events (and Trebol & Co.). He is so well-written and I hope we'll see him return in some way in future chapters. Definitely my favourite character in One Piece!
She feels like fresh air. She has no supernatural power, but she still seems a strong character (not physically). Her story was beautiful: she became a pirate hunter and then a pirate just for her country and her citizens. A wonderful girl!
Second (Unofficial) crew member that's a girl. It makes me sad that she's gone for good, :'( sometimes I wish they'd make an excuse to bring her back, but that would ruin the great storyline they had with her and Alabasta so I know it's but a fantasy :'(
This girl was really sweet and I feel like there were hints of character development I would have LOVED to see in her had she stayed as an official SH crew member. But alas, she has duties as a princess, and the country needs her. :-)
After two years, she's coming back! Reverie, here we come!
Laugh out loud Luffy's usage of this guy's teeth was kinda entertaining. Loved their fight.
Arlong is my favorite one piece villain. He's a greedy, two-faced S.O.B. , but he's good at it. And Being part fish, he has a great advantage underwater. He definitely makes a kick ass villain.
Arlong to me is the archetype of early one piece
I feel like Smoker is actually a really sweet guy. He may be have a tough exterior and may often butt heads with the Straw Hats, but he has a strong sense of justice that is not tainted by corruption. I love the one brief scene when Zoro saves him at Luffy's orders, and he blushes (in anger/embarrassment) when Luffy calls him a pretty cool/sweet guy. HA ha ha ha.
One thing that I especially love about Smoker is that under his gruff exterior, he's a nice and caring man. In his very first appearence, a little girl accidentally bumped into him and spilled her ice cream on his pants. Instead of getting angry and scolding the girl for not paying attention, he kneel down, told the girl he was sorry that his pants ate her ice cream and gave her enough money to buy herself a 5 scoops cone! So cute!
Such a sick and awesome character! Really gets underappreciated for being a Marine. It's awesome how he has that awesome sense of justice that comes in at all the right moments, just in time to save the day! Sanji might be my all time favorite, but Smoker will always be my all-time favorite marine. Not to mention he's built like a tank. And, ironically, smoking is a huge turn on for me.
Guy is made out of smoke, so he can smoke as much as he wants and it won't affect his health, I want that power
Best female character in One Piece in my opinion
Awesome female character
Really cool character, like he's thunder powers and the way he lighting moves almost to teleport, would really like to see him back in One Piece.
I think that he is one of strongest characters in one piece easily he can kill anyone without touch him
The BEST devil fruit so far
Eneru is the best One Piece character - SunGoku
He is insanely strong without even having a devil fruit, he has fought against the strongest pirates in the world on his own strength
He is so strong! With devil fruit power he competed against the strongest pirates in the world. He is a great man that can hide his feelings for justice.
Unlike dragon he actually resembles luffy
Pretty, badass, and powerful! She's amazing! I can't believe how little people realize how relatable she is when she screws stuff up because of Luffy!
Long legs, Pale, long hair, tall, skinny, blue eyes, long fingers, small feet, big booty, curvy, strong, smart, pretty
She's the most beautiful anime girl I've ever seen to be honest.
Anyway I love her
Super hot and really powerful. She is irresistible and she turns you into stone. Wish I was her husband
Strongest swords men in One Piece.
The most powerful pirate ever
Two whitebeards in this list
Most Coolest character
Okay so lets get something straight. Fujitora is a very powerful and bold character in one piece. He may be an admiral but he has heart. He let luffy go when luffy asked who he was and simply said "I think it's better for both of us you don't know". I mean come on people has nobody thought of fujitora? He is the most intelligent admiral in my eyes and I think he will be the admiral to destroy the warlord system.
One of the best marines alongside Smoker because he fights for justice but is not willing to compromise his morals for it.
He's the best of the navy ranked by nobility of soul
Best admiral in my opinion
I expect to see Aokiji back as a rev. Army official. There is no way Aokiji is gone for good. He played a huge role in the series and they can't just take him out after all he has done without telling us what happened to him. Also we see him wearing the attire of the rev army, Coincidence? I think not!
Most epic guy in One Piece, has one of the strongest DF-and he's cool as ice! He's new role in the anime will be great, can't wait to see more of him!
Without him, the Strawhat crew would be dead. Even though it was probably Dragon who told him to save them.
The best and one of the most mysterious characters in the One Piece World. He had relations with the Revolutionaries, the Marine and the pirates and we don't know his intentions
Has the best personality, and he is probably the most fan of luffy and his crew.
Epic powers and sad story
I want her back soon!
Best One Piece girl. I really want her and Sanji to get together.
She is very cute
I went from hating her to loving her. Only Oda can accomplish that.
He's an inspirational character with more morals than any other character in the series. He loves others and is humble yet determined at the same time. In caring, I don't think anyone compares.
Puberty. Coby did it right. It hit him like a truck.
Coby is awesome he was a kid whiteout any badassery now he is a cool marine who uses haki what is het not doing in top 20
Dared to oppose an angry magma admiral, has a kind heart and a great instructor.
Love to see him as vice-admiral someday.
And yet awesome at the same time, the perfect villain
Lets get something straight. BLACKBEARD IS NOT A BAD GUY. He and luffy are simply aiming for the same goal, King of the Pirates. Blackbeard may have done bad things such as get ace executed and take whitebeard's fruit. But let's talk logic, Blackbeard told luffy the one piece exists simply to keep him aiming for his goal. What good will going for something be without any challenges?
Oh we'll be seeing more of him. And people on here: he is the reason ace died how is he not a bad guy?
Dude he's just so damn cool
Has the greatest logia devil fruit, took white beards [most powerful pirate] power
Nothing special about this freak
The most powerful character in all of one piece history to defeted zeff
The fact that he is a love-striving character is undeniably one of the greatest features a character can have, and given to Law, who was dealt such a cruel fate. Looking for dozens of hospitals, providing love and weeping for Law, and ultimately saving his life in exchange for his own, by silencing his voice until his very last moment is Corazon's token of love. This character definitely deserves to be higher up on this list
If it weren't for him, Law would have died. If it weren't for his devil fruit, Law would have died. If he wasn't such a great diplomat with a heart of gold he wouldn't have saved Law's life, sacrificing his own. He is one of my favorite One Piece characters.
What I find amazing about Corazon is that he had 2 or 3 episodes in a 894 episode long series (so far), and it was revealed earlier on in the arc that he’d die, yet somehow his character was so enthralling and quirky which you wouldn’t expect from his introduction. And his death was done flawlessly in a way which somehow the anime did a better job of. He possessed the will of D too
Corazon is higher on here
What could be cooler than a phoenix that is whitebeard pirates 1st division commander
Marco is definitely has to be one of the strongest Pirates ever and I just love his power and strength!
Basically, HE CAN'T DIE unless their is sea prism stuff or sea water touching him but I mean HE CAN'T DIE!
He owns the best devil fruit in the whole one piece universe. This tells everything about how great he is...
He is badass, he can see into the future, almost took Luffy down and the best thing is he is a mochi man
Best character of one piece series shows honor, respect how most antagonists should be.
Best brother ever.
Lol at people bringing up Zoro. Zoro doesn't hold a candle to this guy.
Bird guy died but then didn't die. W o w
Dressrosa had some cool characters and cavendish too
WHY IS HE SO LOW!?!
This was Vivi right? Vivi is higher on here
Vivi undercover. - SamVision
You cannot ask for more loving sacrificial human being than this guy. This is a real life version of Luffy. Beating the living hell out of villains in the real world is often not possible. Such a nice guy. He knew that he's not that strong either. Still, didn't care, made the best effort to save someone's life and dream.
He is a nice person to the point where trafalgar law idolize him and made his pirate crew name "corazon"
I like how in the first few moments I watched him he managed to slap two kids, throw another kid out a window and, light himself on fire.
What! He should be the seventh! I can't believe you guys!
At first he is the one who trained luffy, he is the swordman of the Roger pirates and he is just a sick character.
Oh my god rayleigh is so cool. He trained luffy during the time skip and he was The Pirate Kings first mate
One of the best moments in One Piece when Rayleigh literally flies in and saves Zoro from Kizaru
The first mate above the captain? Poor roger. And zoro above Luffy? What's going on?
He's awesome not the best but at least should be a recognized a little.
A great rival of Luffy
I don't think we'll ever get much of him now that law is pretty major
His magnetism is pretty boss, he could be seen as a huge threat in the anime and he defeated a pacifista which the straw hats couldn't do.
