Coolest One Piece Characters


The Top Ten

1 Roronoa Zoro 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.

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!?

Nothing... Nothing happened.

2 Portgas D. Ace 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.

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

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!

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.

"Start living before you start dying."
The way to live of someone who dies without regrets.

3 Monkey D. Luffy 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.

If you don't take risks,
you can't create a future!

4 Sanji 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. Sanji 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 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.

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!

Thanks, I needed a light.

5 Shanks 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 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

6 Dracule Mihawk Dracule Mihawk

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! - joshsanz

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

The definition of cool - wren6

7 Trafalgar Law 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

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!

His laid back personality while luffys life is in his hand just makes him cool

8 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

He can turn into sand, he is intimidating, but is he better than smocker?

9 Doflamingo 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.

"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

He wears same coat/trousers/shoes with the GOAT Conor McGregor.

10 Monkey D. Dragon 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

Cool in the shadows

11 Katakuri Katakuri

I love this character! He is super strong, cool, level-headed but also honorable. He's also very mysterious which add to his appeal. He's an admirable and likable enemy. I kinda root for him even though I love Luffy. - Annabelle6

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

One of the coolest characters ever! - madrigaelle

That's my boy! - XxMaxX

12 Marco

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

13 Whitebeard (Edward Newgate)

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.

He's so badass he grew a mustache called it a beard and nobody questioned it, also he went to war against the Marine's Headquarters being 72 years old and died standing after being stabbed 267 times, shot 562 times and hit with 46 cannonballs, losing half of his head and all this without taking in regard the injuries he accumulated over the years and that he was quite ill. But the most important thing is that all he did was for his family, all he ever wanted since his childhood, his biggest dream. Pd: I know that ''hige'' means facial hair not necessarily beard but still and sorry for my bad English.

15 Nami 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.

I prefer Robin over Nami

Who added her? This list is about cool characters - smill

Greedy navigator

She is so cool. - Zabimarusensei

16 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.

17 Aokiji 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

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

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

Prettiest and not to mention probably the smartest of all women

There is no one cooler then her. Always calm and hasn't foolish addictions.

Robin is pretty cool in the nonchalant way she reacts to everything.

19 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.

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

Anyone else notice the similarities to Roger and Garp with Luffy, and Smoker?

He smokes, he turns into smoke, he is badass

20 Zanji

Sanji is so underrated don't hate but for me he is the best straw hat better than zoro and luffy zoro is only badass nothing else while sanji is badass funny have mysterious things most person help the crew and care about them and the smartest in the crew

He's so cool! Who else on one piece can put their foot up to their head so they're basically doing the splits!

I thinks its spelled Sanji, not Zanji
Also, not many people like Sanji but I think he is handsome and very caring. Even though he only treats women nicely, he is still brave and friendly. I don't understand why he's so unpopular. He deserves to be the number 1 here.

"Zanji" LMAO Really, isn't there someone who can take care of such stupid mistakes? Also, if we add the 2% to Sanji's other percentage higher on the list, he would be like number 6 instead of 9. -_- - Debbie9

21 Cabaji

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

22 Choo Choo

Who the heck voted for this guy?

23 Sabo 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!

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

Sabo Is really cute ❤️ I love him so much

He has a toppat
Enough said

24 Boa Hancock 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.

Love her powerful beautiful :3

Hankock is very powerful because she can make stone everything and the best haki user!

25 Captain Kuro
26 Siam Siam
27 Magellan
28 Butchie Butchie
29 Gol D. Roger 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 '?

30 Bentham Mr. 2 Bon Kurei

With zoro and luff, honestly are the ones who always sacrifice for his friends, a truly hero among the not main characters

Made the ultimate sacrifise in impel down

Was by Luffys side the whole time when he was poisened

He has the same attitude as Zoro, give it your all for your friends

And he's an Okama (cross dresser)


31 Benn Beckman

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

32 Kuroobi
33 Eustass Kid

Should be much higher in the list. Lost his arm and challenged the yonkos.

34 Mr. 3
35 Corazon Corazon

Corazon sacrificed himself for law and was and amazing character

Wah~~! Corazon

36 Enel

not only cool, but he is also powerful. - joshsanz

He has a very funny face

HE'S VOICED BY THE SYMBOL OF YAOI (Sebastian from Black Butler)

37 Arlong 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.

He definitely makes a great villain. Being part fish, he has a great advantage underwater and doesn't even need any Devil Fruit powers. He's also a cheat. He definitely qualifies as a villain, and he's one of my favorites.

38 Brook 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.

Brook is literally like my favorite character of all time! He is so cool in so many ways! He is so underrated! Like everything about him is AWESOME! Love him! ❤️❤️❤️

39 Pandaman

Pandaman is the best character out. How come he isn't number one?

Panda Man is so cool. He is the most mysirious character and yet one of the most often seen (If you look hard enough)

Pandaman is definitely the best. He is so cool and Mysirious.

Lol, why is this even on the list

41 Blackbeard (Marshall D. Teach)
42 Mr. 4
43 Franky 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.

Franky is just the boss of simply everything, his coolness goes beyond anyone else in the entire series, not a single doubt about it.

How is he not WAY higher on this list I swear to god he is so COOL! He is a cyborg with power and personality that hits you like a truck! He's just so SUPPERRR!

He built the Thousand Sunny and hid a mini-Merry in it. Dood is a real bro!

48 Killer Killer

Killer is pretty cool I hope we learn more about him soon. - madrigaelle

49 Gekko Moriah

The lord of the shadows enough said

50 Caesar Clown Caesar Clown

He's sadistic and psychotic, but still cool in my own opinion. And he can be funny too, especially with his face faults. He is one of my favorite One Piece/anime antagonists, without a single doubt.
