Best One Piece Characters

The Top Ten

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

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.

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

Reminds me of Erza. Badass and takes anything like a champ. I love him!

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 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 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 more.

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.

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

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 is honestly the cutest he acts tough and all but he is a cutie

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 is a badass doctor. He'll make can make people into freakshows and saved luffy's life. He also took down smoker.

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 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.

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.

My favorite are Zoro, Ruffy and Sanji but then comes Nami, seriously she is so cool she can't be n. 9. She's better than Usopp, Tony and Brook And she was the third member of the crew so she is special.

Best character of One Piece

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.

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.

one of the most well done characters in anime and honestly my favorite he is cool cute caring funny smart badass and overall his personality is stunning

One of the most tragic character it's sad what happened to him.

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.

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.

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.

I'm a bit pissed he is bellow Nami. Are you serious? Shanks is a legend and deserves to be higher.

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

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

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

Lol queen should be above Nami

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.

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.

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 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.

THE CUTEST! I think everyone can agree on this, maybe exept some nami fans


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.

Okay, Usopp can be annoying at times but he's a human character and the manga needs that type of character too

He's the very best like no one ever was plus the funiest charecter in one piece

The Contenders

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.

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

I love brook. He's got the biggest heart in all of one piece. Wait he's a skeleton. YOHOHOHOHOH

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

Franky "Iron Man" Franky is a fictional character of the One Piece manga franchise created by Eiichiro Oda. He is the shipwright of the Straw Hat Pirates.

He is funny and has a great character design, he isn’t number 1 but he well deserved top ten in my opinion.

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


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

After the latest flashback with Oden, he definitely climbed in my popularity list. I loved to see more of his character and his adventure!

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.

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 more.

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!


He used to be the most powerful villain, but in marine ford arc he was an anti hero

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.

Monkey D. Dragon

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!

Boa Hancock Hancock has a well proportioned figure compared to the abnormal and huge appearance of her sisters. She is a very tall, slender woman with long black hair that extends past her waist with locks of hair that frame her face down to her chin, pale skin, large breasts, a high forehead, and dark brown (dark more.

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

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.

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.

Reiju Vinsmoke

Best female character in One Piece in my opinion

She's hottest

Awesome female character


Arlong Saw-Tooth Arlong is a sawshark fishman. He was the pirate captain of the all fishman crew, the Arlong Pirates and a former member of the Sun Pirates. He is known for being the main villain in the Arlong Arc and had the highest bounty in East Blue before being defeated by Monkey D. Luffy. Like many other more.

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

first truly hateable character

Nefeltari Vivi

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. :-)

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!

After two years, she's coming back! Reverie, here we come!


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


A seductive dancer who manipulates men
