Coolest One Piece Characters

The Top Ten

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

The man is an op killing machine destined on becoming the worlds greatest swordsman. He ate the badass- badass fruit, making him so badass that he can swim.

Anyone can see why he is the coolest (Three Swords) right.
But really because of his personality and his relationship with his captain which is slightly different than all the other straw hats which one can see during some serious manly conversations and also interaction between the him and luffy and his respect towards luffy his captain.

And of course because HE IS ZORO and that's how it is.

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...

The combination of toughness, ruthlessness, compassion, realism and strong will. I hate how he doesn't get the respect he deserves. In film Z, Suzuki, the screenplay writer, decided to alter his character to Silvers Rayleigh just to downplay him. I know Oda wasnt all that involved but what!?

2 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.

I still haven't fully accepted the fact that he died. So I will just pretend that after Luffy freed Ace, they fought together and then Ace and Whitebeard retired happily.

Since I seem to be the only one in the world who thinks Whitebeard is the coolest character and it wasnt on the list, I had to go with Ace because... He's Ace

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

Ace is the son of Roger, brother of the future king of the pirates, and was so loved by whitebeard they started a war for him. Plus his hat and cool tats are gnarly I love his AsCE one. Its almost like he misspelled ace and crossed it out!

3 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.

One of the most complex characters in One Piece and also one of the most underrated. Sanji is an unusual and attractive mix of different characteristics: cool, badass, funny, smart, caring, temperamental, kind, sassy, handsome, chivalrous, selfless. hard-worker. Not only is he an amazing chef but also one of the top 3 fighters, which makes him an invaluable member of the crew. He is not just there to be the generic serious badass sword-yieding guy that I find sooo boring, his character has much more dept and originality. His fighting style is also one of the coolest in One Piece in my opinion.

Sanji's far too underrated for my liking. The character is complex and torn apart---he's a man who's flirty and kind, but broken and scarred from his past. Yet he plays many big parts on the Straw Hats' adventure, and he's more important than most people will ever know. His past is so original---I've never seen or read of a past like his before. His fighting style is unique, which makes him special and original.

Cool fighting style, complex personality and a tragic past to top it all! That's pretty much the definition of a great character.

The most well-rounded member of the crew. Smart, funny, badass, kind and a very complex character. I adore 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 bad ass, or we can say at all time, 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 all we 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 want to enjoy the navigation and making friends. All that he cares about is the whole journey with his crew mates to the end. That is the thing everybody likes about him.

Haki, managed to get Boa Hancock to fall in love with him, and has a badass family tree... Enough said

You can't beat luffy. On the surface he's a fun loving goofball but he's as loyal and dependable as they come. His resolve is easily the strongest of any character in the series.

Although props to zoro and ace, Luffy takes the cake with his badass ass ass...ness...Yeah, I'm finished.

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

2nd best only to ace but ace died like a hero same with whitebeard but they should no longer be ranked so the new favourite

He has a bear as a crew-mate, and his devil fruit is epic. Enough said

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

Absolute king, pretty much single handedly dismantled Smoker's crew, and the way that he told Tashigi how weak she was after slicing her in half... Priceless!

6 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 like Shanks, because he's simple and cool and mastered all three types of haki.

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.

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

Shanks is badass red haired pirate. That's all

7 Katakuri

I don't find any more badass look with more badass design ever than the great katakuri.The way he handle things,the way he acts cool in tough situations, the way he has his image,the way he speak and lot more.How can you deny such a badass.

Best villain character I've ever seen

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

One of the coolest characters ever!

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.

He's by far the "coolest" I like the fact that we don't know much of him, he's probably my favourite character

The most powerful swordsman!

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

Until Zoro Surpasses him, he's the most badass in one piece till date, just see his appearances in the show, all badass.

9 Crocodile

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

He looks awesome and is one of luffy's toughest opponents

This guy became kazekage

Crocodile doesn't care about what anyone says and he kicked Doflamingo and Jozus ass

10 Whitebeard (Edward Newgate)

I don't have the words to describe that man. The only thing I want to say is: “Even in death, his body did not fall. His figure, taking down enemies while losing half of his head, was truly monstrous. The total number of sword wounds he received in this battle was 267. He was shot by 152 bullets and was hit by 46 cannonballs. And despite all this, his proud back, over the course of his entire life as a pirate, never received a single scar from running away!”

Most badass character in one piece. He was stabbed 267 times, shot more than 500 times and hit with 46 cannonballs, still he was able to talk, even after his death his body did not give up and HE DYED STANDING!

This guy had the power to destroy the world, he was hinted to be the strongest pirate after Gol D. Roger and the only one who could rival with him. He actually didn't have any interest to become king of the pirates himself, otherwise it would have been a piece of cake for him.

He died for his cause.

The Contenders

11 Rob Lucci

Menacing, intense stylish character

cool leopard

Mysterious

12 Aokiji

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. One of the only marines that sees the corruptness in it also

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

He's really cool

13 Monkey D. Dragon

Luffy 's dad is hinted to be the strongest character ever to be released

Hinted to be the most powerful character!

I'm surprise that dragon is on 12, he is one of the sttrongest character and has great power. Most wanted man also

He definitely should be in the top 10.

14 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.

Better than robin

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

Nami >>> robin

She is so cool. Way cooler than Nico Borin.

15 Doflamingo

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.

Definitely needs to be up there with zoro, and trafalgar, honestly these three should be the top 3.

"Heavenly Sky Daemon". Just the name itself is BADASS! Horrible childhood, tasted heaven and hell and awakened KING'S HAKI @ 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!

EVERYTHING is cool about this bad but hot-ass boy

16 Vinsmoke Reiju

She's definitely one of the coolest one piece characters.

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

bad ass and pretty AT THE SAME TIME she can take care of herself and look good doing it

Way cooler than Nami.

Nico Robin is definitely the coolest female character in OP.

No sharp teethes, to show that she's angry but in the episode 367 it shows a devil in her to show that's she's angry. When she's scared she sweats and not poking her tongue out. I thinks she's the coolest by doing those things

18 Gol D. Roger

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

King Pirate must be the first

King of the pirate on place 27 seriously '?

Why is he so low
He’s the king of the pirates for a reason

19 Marco

He is literally the coolest character in the anime
his devil fruit is what I like about him its just a really cool devil fruit, you can fly, heal your self, heal your comrades
and he still didn't show the awakening yet what I think is that his flames will actually burn in the awakening
i like how he respects his crew or you can call them family there is just no reason for you not to like him

Exactly, he's Whitebeard's right hand (now commander of the entire WB crew! ), who has 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 at the top

I think he has probably the coolest devil's fruit I've ever seen! The Mythological Zoo-Zoo Phoenix one! He's gonna become one of the most powerful characters of all One Piece!

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

20 Cabaji

The hell? Why is this little punk on so many lists? Many Cabaji fans out there?

Small fry

21 Smoker

A fantastic character who is so much deeper than a simple antagonist. Whats more is that 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 to Roger and Garp with Luffy, and Smoker?

One of My favorite Characters... Still disappointed for smoker to lose from law :/

He makes smocking look cool

22 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!

Sabo is just badass

The inheritor of the mera mera fruit (Formerly Ace's)
Makes Sabo an instant BAMF

Sabo Is really cute ❤️ I love him so much

23 Benn Beckman

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

24 Captain Kuro
25 Kizaru

The biggest troll in one piece. Combined with the appearance of a mafiosi and the power of a pretty badass logia-fruit he is the coolest admiral there is... sorry Aokiji (laugh out loud cool )

Unbeatable, badass.

He looks so weird and troll people

Easily the most chill among them
