Top 10 Iconic One Piece Moments

My favorite anime of all time. I will countdown the iconic moments in One Piece. It was not easy doing this since there is a lot of moments.

The Top Ten

1 Luffy Defeats Lucci with Jet Gatling (Enies Lobby Arc) Luffy Defeats Lucci with Jet Gatling (Enies Lobby Arc)

Too good

I really liked the part right before he kicks Lucci's ass, and right after Ussop's speach, where he screams "You're Damn Right! " in Second Gear.

One of the reasons this moment is number one for me is what this moment meant for me. Willpower and determination, this truly shows the power of Luffy at this moment. Also, it was cool to see Lucci get wrecked by Luffy. - Draconic1000

You can't even see his arms.

2 Ace's Death (Marineford Arc) Ace's Death (Marineford Arc)

so sad

Thank you Edward for beating the crap outta Sakazuki.

Everybody knows this moment. I cried for a day, the first time I saw this moment. And still gets me emotional every time I see it, Ace's huge care for its brother, "Thank you for loving me", Luffy's reaction, everyone's reaction?! What more can I say? - Draconic1000

3 Roronoa Zoro's Sacrifice (Thriller Bark Arc) Roronoa Zoro's Sacrifice (Thriller Bark Arc)

How can I forget this epic moment from badass swordsman himself. The respect of a crewmate for his captain, amazing! "Nothing happened." Just so epic. - Draconic1000

Nothing... Nothing happened.

4 Shanks Gives the Strawhat to Luffy (East Blue) Shanks Gives the Strawhat to Luffy (East Blue)


This strawhat has lived an incredible adventure during his born.

Epic moment. The scene that began everything. No more words to describe this great moment. - Draconic1000

5 Nico Robin's "I Want to Live" (Enies Lobby Arc)

The most emotional and epic escene at he same time. No one could deny the emotional burden with those words and actions combined.

You know this moment pretty well. Burning the flag, declaring war against the world government, Robin's past, all making the moment much more emotional and epic. - Draconic1000

6 Luffy Punches Celestial Dragon (Sabaody Archipelago Arc) Luffy Punches Celestial Dragon (Sabaody Archipelago Arc)

Luffy's best punch. Easy.

The episode were he punches Charles. Then Rayleigh shows up drop everyone with kings haki. And the. Luffy, kid and law team up should be like number 4

One of the most satisfying punches of all anime, from anime to manga. Animation, emotion, BADASSERY all on another level. - Draconic1000

7 Luffy vs Sanji (Whole Cake Island Arc) Luffy vs Sanji (Whole Cake Island Arc)

I teared up, that was intense. What makes it worse is that you completely understand where both of them are coming from and sympathize with them, yet you have to watch it unfold and it's heartbreaking, especially when Sanji starts crying at the end as Luffy yells "Without you I won't, I can't be the pirate King! " The feels!

8 Dr. Hiluluk's Speech (Drum Island Arc) Dr. Hiluluk's Speech (Drum Island Arc)

The speech itself makes the moment amazing, "When does a man die? When he is hit by a bullet? No! When he suffers a disease? No! When he ate a soup made out of a poisonous mushroom? No! A man dies when he is forgotten! " I'm at a loss for words for this epicness. - Draconic1000

9 Nami's Past and Luffy Defeats Arlong (Arlong Park Arc) Nami's Past and Luffy Defeats Arlong (Arlong Park Arc)

I don't understand how it is more memorable than the other fights in One Piece. Crocodile, Enel, Rob Lucci, Doflamingo, were all more memorable. And other characters had a sadder past than Nami. I don't think there is anything sepcial about that arc at all.

I can't choose guys! Both are amazing, Nami's backstory with Bellamy, really sad and I cried a lot in this backstory. It's for Nami's character development. And the final blow to end Arlong's madness, Luffy does an epic Gum-Gum Battle Axe that gives me the chills. Both are great moments. - Draconic1000

10 Gear Fourth (Dressrosa Arc) Gear Fourth (Dressrosa Arc)

It's low I know, it's not easy to choose but treat each moment as the best. And I don't hate this moment. How the hell I would hate Luffy's most badass moment in Dressrosa. Animation: Fantastic! Epicness: Amazing! Power: Incredible! - Draconic1000

The Contenders

11 Doflamingo's Throne War Speech (Dressrosa Arc) Doflamingo's Throne War Speech (Dressrosa Arc)

That gave me chills. This is a foreshadowing for the final war of One Piece. Enough said. - Draconic1000

12 Luffy Rings the Ox Bell (Post-War Arc)
13 Luffy vs Enel (Ringing the Bell on Skypiea)

Ringing that bell sending the message to the descendants of Noland below. Wiper's tears... Your ancestor didn't lie... The city of gold was up here all along. It gave me so much feels.

OUGON RIFLE! Personally my favorite Luffy attack thanks to the emotion Luffy brings out of this fight (and Enels face after seeing Luffy stop his lightning attack is golden)

14 Luffy vs Crocodile (Alabasta Arc)
15 Usopp Shoots Down World Govt Flag (Enies Lobby)
16 Luffy Uses Haki to Defeat 50 Thousand Fishmen (Fish-Man Island Arc)

Watching Luffy do that is just straight up awesome in my opinion. To be honest that's all I have to say about it.

17 Zoro vs Mihawk (Baratie Arc)
18 Zoro vs Mihawk (Baratie Arc)
